If there's one thing in this world that I love more than coffee is cozy socks and Sock It To Me is one of the most creative companies I'm lucky enough to collaborate with! They were so kind in gifting me three pairs of socks that I styled for this post so let me share with you what I came up with! I'll link what's available if you're interested in a certain piece of my outfit!
For these shimmery rainbow socks, I took it to the wizarding world. Pictures don't do the sparkly justice and they are so soft! I didn't want to take them off. This top from Boxlunch paired with this red skirt from Amazon created the perfect rainbow vibes! My headband is from the lovely Rarity By Casey.
For these knee high socks called Bee's Knees (the cutest name), I embraced my inner Winnie the Pooh! I always tell my husband he's the bee's knees so when I saw these socks, I was so excited to style them! I am such a fan of knee high socks because they keep my legs warm and doing it in style is so much better! My ears are from Be Ear Guest (use code JEN10), my awesome top is from Boxlunch, and my black skirt is from Forever 21.
Lastly, the most whimsical knee high socks ever! I love rainbows and unicorns so the two combined make these socks the most magical. I decided to style these socks in the most fun way possible. My ears were from the Disney Parks (haven't seen them in awhile), my spirit jersey is also from the parks but I haven't seen this specific one in awhile, and my skirt is from a past design from Pretty Little Monograms (use code PEIXOTODUST).
Thank you so much again Sock It To Me for the fun socks and I am so grateful for this awesome opportunity! If you love having colorful, cozy socks like I do, you do not want to miss out from looking at all their fun designs andbuying a pair or ten. Have a wonderful week everyone and I'll be back with another post soon!
Do you love receiving presents? Do you like receiving magic mail? Then TheraBox is for you! I know I love receiving mail so when I was gifted this box from TheraBox, a one of a kind self care monthly subscription box, I became ecstatic. Each box is carefully curated of 6-8 products that are all made with fresh ingredients and all ready to give you the self love and care you deserve!
Each subscription box comes with a small magazine that explains in full detail what is inside the box. It will give you information on what the product is made of as well as where you can buy more if you love it so much. In the front of the magazine is a fun activity to do for the month to help get started!
What came inside the box I received from TheraBox? Well, let me share that with you now! I'll explain what each product is and if I would use it again.
First in my box was a bronzing potion glow cream from KVoss valued at $20. You know that glowy look we constantly look for in filters? This creates that luminosity without having to pull up Snapchat. This cream is created with coconut water and mineral mica which helps bring that healthy sun kissed glow. It moisturizes your skin and it has a very clean scent to it. It can be used on all skin tones which makes it that much better! Would I use it again? HECK YES. It left my skin so soft when I used it and I love being able to give myself a natural and fresh look when I run errands without having to cake on makeup.
Included in the box was this natural inhaler from Aromastick (valued at $9.95) called the Balance Aromastick. Imported from Switzerland and containing a blend of 100% organic essential oils, this is a wonderful item to carry on to both stimulate and relax you. I suffer from a panic disorder and the first thing that happens when I'm experiencing the beginnings of a panic attack is dissociation from my surroundings. Ever since receiving this, it has helped me so much in grounding me and helping me calm myself. This lasts for 6 months but as soon as I go through this one I'll be buying more.
Raise of hands for anyone that forgets to clean their face after working out or after sweating a lot. Since you can't see, I'm raising mine. A terrible habit that I have but now with this quick fix spray from Pulse Skincare (valued at $23), I have NO EXCUSE. This spray is a combination of organic essential oils and Witch Hazel. Your skin becomes very vulnerable to breakouts when you don't clean it after a sweatfest and this helps prevent that. I don't sweat to often but I would buy this in a heartbeat!
Another product included in my box was Z Skin Cosmetics product called Simply Organic Sunblock SPF 45, valued at $17. This is 100% organically made from all natural ingredients that include carrot, lemon, peppermint, orange, kiwi, tangerine, citronella, zinc oxide and raspberry. You guessed correctly, it smells AMAZING. I never understood the importance of putting on sunblock daily until my grandma had a cancer skin when she developed a spot on her face. Now anytime I know I'll be in the sun, I apply SPF and it helps so much when it smells like this. I already plan on buying more, especially since it doesn't leave behind any greasiness. Want to hear something else that's amazing for this sunblock? It also works as a bug repellent. HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!
I consistently use face masks as a way to unwind and this one from Maskeraide (valued at $5) has become another go to. This specific one is called I Don't Wanna Grow Up (hello inner Peter Pan) and it helps firm and soften fine lines. It helps rejuvenate your skin with the infusion of argon oil based serum, hydrolyzed collagen and Vitamin E. Put on relaxing music and enjoy this mask for 15-20 minutes. You bet I already have a lot of these masks in my cart for future spa nights.
Another fun product included is this passport and luggage set from The Happy Shoppe, valued at $18. This beautiful marble design with beautiful rose gold lettering is perfect for all those travel plans you have. It's lightweight but protects your passport from being damaged while giving you some major stylish vibes!
Growing up in an environmentally conscious home, I'm so happy that reusuable straws are becoming a trend. These stainless steel straws from California Home Goods ($13.99) are what every household needs. The straws are bent and come with a cleaning brush for them. I'm so in love with the rainbow color of them and the fact they're BPA free makes them that much better!
Remember that fun activity I told you about that comes inside the magazine? Well in this box was an activity to create a vision board. I'm a huge believer in vision boards because on the first day of 2017, David and I made one with goals to move to Southern California. Within a month and half, we were apartment hunting because he received a job offer down here, Included in this box was a cute board to help get that vision board started! We are about set some goals on here to help us continue pursuing goals to buy a home in the future!
I can't express how much I have loved my box from TheraBox. The monthly subscription costs $34.99 and renews itself! To cancel is hassle free but after receiving your first one, I'm not sure you'll want to! This box was valued over $120 and these are products I would use again in a heartbeat. There wasn't one product I disliked or wouldn't recommend.
I hope this brings you another amazing way to show yourself some self love! Remember that it isn't selfish and everyone deserves to take at least half an hour to relax! I hope you all have a wonderful day and I'll be back soon with another post!
If you ask me what my favorite feature on my face is I’ll always respond with my smile. Which is why I try my hardest to keep a healthy and bright dental hygiene. I’ve been using manual toothbrushes ever since I can remember. When I did get braces at 14, my orthodontist was kind enough to give me an electric toothbrush to help with cleaning them. That one ended up breaking about 3 years in and I never invested in one again. I have been on a search for a great electric toothbrush and my wish was granted when Smile Brilliantly gifted me this CariPro electric toothbrush.
From the first use, I could already feel a difference in how clean my teeth felt. The next morning, I even felt a great difference in my morning breath. I didn’t feel like I was going to make someone pass out. Now after 3 weeks of using it everyday and playing with the settings, I can confidently tell you I AM IN LOVE WITH IT.
Let me explain to you one of the main reasons and that is that it has FIVE different settings. That’s right. FIVE. Let me go into detail about each one:
Clean: This one is to get the job done! The vibrations are pretty average and this setting was the first one I used. I felt like it got every bit of food out before I even flossed!
White: This one has stronger vibrations and really helps clean your teeth. Being a coffee connoisseur, I love using this one to make sure I’m not staining my teeth more than I need to.
Massage: This one feels AMAZING. There are days I clench my jaw so much from being anxious throughout the day and this soothes my gums so much.
Gum Care: I never realized that as much as we care for our teeth, we should also care for our gums as well! This on top of flossing just really helps keep them healthy and feeling so clean!
Sensitive: And lastly, my favorite setting of them all. As I mentioned above, I deal with anxiety a lot which means a lot of clenching of my jaw and my teeth. Doing it so often leaves my teeth feeling very sensitive. This setting helps get my teeth cleaned and helps soothe that pain.
Overall, I’m forever a believer in the electric toothbrush, especially the Caripro. I can’t say it enough how important it is to invest the money and time in getting something so beneficial to your dental hygiene. Take care of those beautiful smiles with not just this code for you to use but also a giveaway, linked below!! Happy smiling!

Once upon a time, I lived in a world where I didn't realize amazing small shops existed. I only had the mainstream stores to hopefully have something for my Disney loving soul. Then one day, I came across Brand By You and lived happily ever after.
On a little more serious note though, Brand By You was one of the very first small shops I came across when I first shifted my focus into the Disney community on Instagram and I've been a happy camper since. Donna's vision is perfect for my kid at heart but also when I am trying to be a little more bada**. From her love to all things Disney to food to Marvel, there's something for everyone in her shop.
Donna was kind to gift me the following three tees and I had such a blast styling them! Thank you so much again Donna! And now without further ado, let me share with you more details of my outfits.
The first tee is this Sorcerer Apprentice inspired tee (currently on sale)! My Fantasmic loving soul really went into overdrive when I saw it and I had the perfect skirt to go with it (bought this from an online boutique two years ago). The ears are from KulturMouse and necklace from Extras By O. Shoes are from Toms (not sold anymore) and I can't think of an outfit more meant to be than this one.
Next tee is inspired by one of my favorite characters ever, Vanellope Von Schweetz! This tee is sassy and colorful which makes for a fun outfit! I decided to give my ears a rest and went for this colorful headband from Rarity By Casey instead. This awesome skirt is from Pretty Little Monograms and felt like it added to the fun color scheme of the shirt (and Vanellope's personality is just a celebration all around)! The donut necklace is from Shop Disney (found at the parks) and I felt like it added a "sweet" touch to the entire outfit...eh? Eh? Okay I'll see myself out.
I left my favorite outfit I've ever created for last because I am just so in love with it. As soon as I saw this Dumbo inspired tee, I knew I needed to create a more dramatic outfit for it. Again, I decided to opt out of the normal mouse ears and went for this red velvet headband from Rarity By Casey. I had a basic black skirt from Amazon on but felt like I needed something more dramatic when I remembered I had this star dress overlay from Target (not sold anymore). I stuffed the straps into the skirt and I LOVE how it turned out. I wanted to give it more of a casual touch so I decided to wear my Converse. Not only are they casual but my high tops just give me more of a bada** feel anyways so it worked out.
Thank you so much again Donna for the tees and for trusting me to create amazing outfits for your brand. I am a huge believer in supporting small shops but mostly supporting amazing people that have a heart of gold and a vision so unique to a community that can get slightly repetitive. Donna has the courage to do what she envisions and to really follow it through. If you haven't already done so, please follow her on Instagram to stay up to date with everything she creates!
If there's a color that can instantly cheer me up (that isn't rainbow lol) it's yellow! I love how bright the color is, how it reminds me of sunshine and how much it can brighten up an outfit! These yellow ears from Viva La Mouse aren't just bright and happy but also super comfortable as well as light. Perfect for a long day of park hopping without having to worry about a headache. Here are 4 ways I styled these beautiful ears:
The weather where I currently live has been a mixture of a lot of cool breezes so this sweater from Oh Yeah Apparel was the perfect choice for this morning. Super soft and light, I didn't want to take it off at all! Most sizes are sold out but you can find it here. The glasses were from the JunkFood Clothing and Disney collaboration with Target last summer. Paired with my favorite jeans from Levi's and my favorite red Toms, this was the perfect outfit for a cool morning.
I don't know if you've guessed it already but I love rainbow anything. This shirt from Mainstreet Michi (found here) is the perfect tee to go with these bright ears. A neutral color like this one really makes them pop but new shades are also available! I styled this shirt with super bright shorts from Forever 21 (all sold out online), my favorite bright red Minnie Mouse backpack from Loungefly, my favorite Alex and Anis as well as a briar rose gold bow band from Mouse on Main Street (found here). I felt beyond retro with this outfit and can't wait to wear it again.
I'm not one to Disney bound often but I accidentally did a Snow White bound when I put this outfit together. The necklace is from Extras by O, the amazing glittertastic tee is from Pretty Little Monograms and believe it or not, I got this beautiful red sequin skirt from the girls section at Target. This was during the holidays and not available anymore. I'm not the biggest Snow White fan but I loved putting this bound together! I love her color schemes and the yellow ears were the inspiration for creating this outfit.
Lastly, I wanted to do a fun outfit with this tee. The yellow ears really makes the yellow in the tee pop and instead of grabbing the jeans I originally was planning to wear, I opted for this fun plaid skirt I got from Forever 21 last fall. The tee is from The Lost Bros (most sizes still available and can be found here). I love the nostalgia this tee brings because I am a huge fan of the Carousel of Progress at Magic Kingdom. I can sing the song all day and not be bothered by it.
As you can see, these yellow ears are beyond versatile! So many outfit possibilities and so little time! How would you style these ears? Let me know in the comments below and I'll be back soon with another How To!
