#StockingStuffer: Lafe's CBD Roll-On Deodorant #HolidayGiftGuide

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Lafe's for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


Guess what makes a great stocking stuffer idea?  Beauty and body care products!  Lafe's has just released a line of CBD Roll-On Deodorants that would be perfect for lovers of natural and organic body products!  Check them out:  


Lafe's CBD Roll-On Deodorants help fight odor causing bacteria the natural way!  They are infused with 50mg of high quality, Full Spectrum CBD Oil.  CBD Oil has long been known to have natural antibacterial elements to help fight odor.  And because Lafe's CBD Roll On Deodorant contains essential oils, never any toxins, you will feel fresh and clean throughout the day.     


The women's deodorant line includes:


Lafe's CBD Roll On Deodorant - Lavender and White Tea


Lafe's CBD Roll On Deodorant - Matcha Tea

Lafe's CBD Roll On Deodorant - Chamomile Tea

These vegan roll-ons are so great and one way to prove it is to take a look at what you won't find in them:

No Aluminum Chlorhydrate
No Propylene Glycol
No Petroleum
No Triclosans
No SLS/SLES/Sodium Laurel Sulfate
No PEG Compounds
No DEA/TEA/MEA
No VOCs
No FD and S Colors/Dyes
No Mineral Oil

I have pretty sensitive skin and these roll-ons cause absolutely zero skin irritation.  Plus, they aren't sticky like other roll-ons I've used.  They dry quickly and they work to combat odor and moisture all day long!  If you know someone who is interested in trying a CBD product, this is a great one to start with.  


Lafe's has lots of other wonderful body care products that use natural and organic ingredients.  Check them out for your holiday gifting!

Gorgeous Darn Good Yarn Silk Sari Skirts! #dodarngood


*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Darn Good Yarn for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 

Y'all, I've found the perfect skirt for transitioning from summer to fall...the Sari Wrap Skirt from Darn Good Yarn!


These gorgeous skirts come in a variety of eye catching prints and bold color combinations.  They are expertly pieced together from generous portions of silk and layer beautifully.  They come in two lengths, Mini and Ankle length.  Mini goes to just above the knee and ankle is a full length skirt (based on a 5 foot 6 inch model:)


There are holes on either side of the skirt so you can wrap and tie on the left or right.  The skirt can be worn with either the top layer or the bottom layer faced out, so it's like two skirts in one!

These skirts are light and breezy for summer and can be worn over leggings as you transition into fall, making them super versatile and a part of your wardrobe all year long!


Each skirt is handmade by Darn Good Yarn co-ops in India out of recycled saris and turned into the beautiful finished skirt you see. When you purchase a silk sari skirt, these artisans are able to sustain year-round employment.


Do good, feel good and look good with a silk sari skirt from Darn Good Yarn!

#GiftsforHer: Ruby Ribbon Camis and Sports Bras #HolidayGiftGuide


*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Ruby Ribbon for providing product samples in order to facilitate this post.  All thoughts are strictly my own. 


A good piece of shapewear makes a great gift that could last for years!  Ruby Ribbon recently sent me an assortment of camis and sports bras to try out and I was pretty impressed.  Take a look:


Original Convertible Cami

This cami features convertible straps can be removed or configured to accommodate a multitude of necklines and comes in a variety of cup sizes.  The perfect fit cups are molded to prevent uni-boob and fit all cup sizes B and up.  This cami offers awesome wire-free support which means it is crazy comfy!

Ruby Ribbon camis stay put thanks in part to the invisible gripper edge along the bottom:


The wicking fabric keeps you cool and dry while smoothing your tummy and banning back flaps and bra bulge.  


Definitely one of the best pieces of shapewear I've owned.  Of course, as with most shapewear, they are a little tricky to squeeze into, but once on they are uber comfortable and cute!

Lace Light Support Cami

A feminine touch of lace gives this slight v-neck cami allure.  It feature a built-in shelf bra and has adjustable straps that can be cris-crossed in the back.  It provides light tummy support and all the awesomeness of the original cami.  I love the color and the feminine, lacy touch.


Sport Demiette

Ruby Ribbon, experts in wirefree support, recently introduced the first active demiette option for women of any size, up to size 50. A portion of proceeds of the power pink Sport Demi will go to National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.®


This sports bra has all of the great features of the cami, but it's cropped length ends at the rib cage.  It is made with antimicrobial, wicking fabric that keeps you cool, dry and odor free, plus it has UPF sun protection built-in for those outdoor workout sessions.


The demiette comes in a couple of different color options and has adjustable racerback straps for the utmost comfort.


They provide just the right amount of support for most low-medium impact workouts.  I'm a fan!

Shop Ruby Ribbon for awesome shapewear gifts this holiday season or treat yourself to a pretty piece to wear to those holiday functions!  So comfy and smoothing, you'll love it!
