One more day 'til Summer vacation in our house and we are SO excited!!

When it comes to Summer essentials, I am ALL about a carryall tote and ALL about anything gingham! When I spotted this adorable new Jacey tote by Sole Society, I felt like it was a match made in heaven! It's the perfect tote for errands, shopping trips and travel. I love that it's roomy enough to fit my laptop + a book/magazines for travel, yet can also wear as a purse! It also comes in a black gingham, has a detachable cross-body strap and it's $59 price-point is pretty amazing! {If you love gingham like me, Sole Society also just launched the cutest gingham clutch!}

dress, also on major sale here / headband / earrings / sunglasses / tote / wedges 

You all know I also have a love affair with fun, neutral wedges. This new Amberly Wedge by Sole Society is both super cute and comfy. It comes in four colors {I am wearing the color Eggshell}, including a pretty metallic gold and a cheery coral-hue! I love the fit and style so much, I am tempted to add another pair to my summer shoe collection!

If you have Summer travel plans, this tote and wedge sandal duo are musts! Both are stylish yet neutral options that will save space packing since they can mix and match with so much! I love that the wedges can be worn day or night and that the tote can be transitioned from a carry-on/travel bag to a day bag/purse!

If you are looking for a wear-anywhere casual little white dress, the one I am wearing here is on major sale today! It comes in three colors and runs generous, so size down. I am wearing an XS.

Happy Almost-Summer, friends! 

Stylishly yours,

Friday Five

LaurenComment

Happy Friday! It's officially one more week until Summer vacation in our house and this mama {and my twins} couldn't be more ready! 

Here are five things I am currently loving, all perfect for the hot summer days quickly approaching!

swimsuit / shorts / hat / earrings / sandals / sunglasses

1. This swimsuit and these cutoffs. First of all, this adorable Topshop one-peice is a total steal for just $60, and flattering, too! {I recommend sizing up like I always do with Topshop.}

Speaking of flattering, these denim shorts by Fashionable fit like a dream. They are perfectly mid/high waisted and the inseam is a perfect not-too-short and not-too-long length. I will be sporting them on Instagram/Instastories this weekend, so be sure to pop over to see what they look like on!

2. These pajamas. These palm-print pajamas come in two other color options and are my favorite summer PJ's ever! They are soft, comfy and fit perfectly! 

Also, I am loving this new book, "I've Been Thinking" by Maria Shriver. It's filled with snippets of daily encouragement and perfect for a quick five-minute daily reading! 

Oh, and I always get questions about this super-plush throw that is just $39 and comes in LOTS of gorgeous colors. It is perfect for a bedroom or living area, and also makes a fabulous gift.

3. This little white dress. I love a casual white dress for summer, because it looks so effortless for day or a laid-back evening; and can be accessorized with any colors! This white dress by Free People is comfy and breezy...and currently 40% off!!  I love it with flat sandals and with wedges, and wore it recently with these flat sandals for a travel day. It's also perfect for a beach vacation! {I am wearing an XS dress for reference. It's also available in additional colors and sizes here.}

4. This tunic top. I love pairing a tunic top with denim shorts! This gorgeous tunic fits amazing and is perfect with shorts or skinny jeans. It's also currently on major sale here and here! I am wearing an XS.

top / shoes / jeans / earrings / sunglasses

5. This little eyelet tee. You cannot have too many white tops in your Summer wardrobe, and I am loving this $34 eyelet-detailed, off the shoulder version from Express. It comes in five colors and if you purchase two, the second one is just $19! 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Stylishly yours,

Five Safer Beauty Products to Switch to NOW

LaurenComment
IMG_5867 (1).JPG

If you follow me on social media, you know that I have been on a "switching to safer" skincare/beauty journey over the past year. You can read more about it on this post.

Two weeks ago, I traveled to Minneapolis {my first time to this super-cool city!} for the Beautycounter Leadership Summit, where I had the privilege of hearing from Maria Shriver, as well as the leaders and innovators n the safe beauty industry.

What I love about Beautycounter is that we are the leaders of safe skincare and beauty with the most rigerous testing/screening standards of any US company AND that our products are both SAFE and PERFORM. We often describe our products as Whole Foods meeting Chanel, which couldn't feel any more true! We ban over 1500 potentially harmful ingredients, and are literally leading a movement for change in regulation and safer laws in the United States and beyond. 

Since returning from Summit, many of you have been asking me "Where do I start?" and "Which products should I swap out first?!" I am a firm believer in swapping/replacing with safer products as you run out of what you already have, and these are my top five products to start with ::

EditByLauren_DigitalDecorQ4 11.jpg

1. Body Wash. If you think about it, it makes sense that your body quickly absorbs whatever you put on it in the shower, since your pores are open due to heat and moisture while bathing. I love that this amazing smelling Beautycounter Citrus Mimosa Body Wash is rich and moisturizing, and doubles as a shave cream! My hubby and kids use it, too!

2. Body Lotion. One of the first products I switched to safer was body lotion. I figured that since I was slathering lotion from head to toe each day, this was an important place to start removing toxins! I love the Beautycounter Body Butter for intense hydration and just started using the brand new Countermatch Body Lotion...it adapts to your skin all day and has a light-almond scent which I love. The mainstay Citrus Mimosa Body Lotion is a fabulous place to start, too!

3. Lip Gloss / Lip Stick. If you are anything like me, you apply lip gloss/ chapstick / lip stick throughout each day. Conventional lipstick is full of lead and toxins {YIKES!}, and the fact that what goes on our lips is ingested is reason enough to switch to safer. {If you can't give up your favorite lipstick, it's okay. I recommend using a safe lipstick/gloss for everyday and saving your "less-safe" fav for special occasions

I am a huge fan of Beautycounter Lipglosses {my favs are Azalea and Poppy Shimmer for Summer}, the new Intense-Color Lipsticks {my current fav is Garden Party} and I swear by the Lip Conditioner...I apply it at night, in the morning and throughout the day. If you prefer a very sheer lipstick, you will love these!

4. Sunscreen. If you read or watch the news, you are probably aware of the dangers of toxic-laden sunscreen that are making headlines everywhere! Beautycounter's sunscreen collection as been my family's go-to for the past two summer season's and I am SO thrilled about the just-launched Sunscreen Spray! We also love the Sunscreen Sticks for quick and easy application on the face, shoulders and arms. Beautycounter Sunscreens apply like a dream and contain UVA, UVB and Blue Light blocking filters.

5. Makeup Routine. Since makeup is something most of us women wear each and everyday, evaluating the safety of our daily routines is important! If you haven't yet seen my Flawless in Five // Five Minute Face tutorial yet, check it out to see how easy and effective the Beautycounter Flawless in Five kit is! 

As always, I am happy to answer any questions at all about the mission, products and/or business of Beautycounter! Feel free to email me at lauren@editbylauren.com.

Two things to consider as you check out Beautycounter ::

IMG_5878.JPG

1. If your first order is $100 or more and/or if you plan on ordering from Beautycounter regularly, it makes TOTAL sense to join our Band of Beauty membership. For a $29 fee, this membership acts like a Costco card with awesome benefits! You will immediately receive 15% back in product credit on each and every order you place + receive free shipping on all orders over $100 + receive our fan-favorite Sugar Body Scrub, which I use once a week and before self-tanning! Don't worry are no reoccurring charges or auto-ships or anything shady that like!

2. If you are interested in joining the mission and business of Beautycounter, I would love to chat! I am actively growing my team and I have to say, it's the most encouraging, supportive and collaborative group of women I have ever worked with! We have ladies who are stay at home moms, doctors, nurses, lawyers, cancer survivers, teachers, those in corporate jobs and bloggers on our team. We are united with a common mission to get safer products in the hands of everyone and to have fun and make some money on top of that! If you are interested at all, feel free to reach out to me via email at lauren@editbylauren.com. You can also learn more here.
