I get it, what girl doesn't feel more confident when their skin is nicely bronzed from the summer sun?? THIS GIRL DOES! And that is why I need a good sun protectant, and don't forget I'd prefer for it to feel and smell good. Who's with me!? Why is that so hard to find without being caked with chemicals that are actually worse for you than the sun itself.
Well ladies listen up... I found the PERFECT, dream, yummy, sunscreen. Alba Botanica is where it's at!! I've used it on those 95 degree weather with a UV of 10 kind of days and didn't get a burn, didn't feel a burn while outside, and came in feeling less sticky than ever before from a sunscreen. It smells so good that you won't feel weird about using it before Memorial Day or past Labor Day on a regular basis ;)
Our skin is so fragile, and as our biggest organ, we need to be taking as good of care of it as we possibly can. Alba Botanica is one of my absolute favorite green brands. I've been using them for years and they are more than just a green beauty brand. They support young girls by helping to provide education and strive to protect your skin and the earth.
Alba's Hawaiian Sunscreen Green Tea Lotion is SPF 45 and rubs on just like your daily body lotion. It is reef friendly, biodegradable, and free of any harmful fragrances or sulfates. It not only protects your skin, but nourishes it too and yet manages to be non-greasy. LOVE THAT!!
If you are more of a spray girl, their Hawaiian Sunscreen Clear Spray SPF 50 is just as amazing! It's earth-friendly, tropically-scented and also biodegradable. Gluten-Free and helps protect against sunburn, skin cancer, and premature signs of aging. Spray it on at any angle and you are good to go sister!
Summer may be about to wind down, but the sun never stops and neither should year-round sun protection! Keeping' it tan and keeping' it healthy, Alba Botanica's got my back (literally lol).
Hopping on here real fast to share these gorgeous earrings! I love a classic pearl!! What I' loving even more right now are the raw, asymmetrical pearls paired with unique settings. Such a fun way to switch up a classic style. These Bold N' Bolder Olivia earrings are to die for!! They are super light and perfect for a casual fitted tee to a formal night out. They have so many fun earrings to choose from, I can't decided which ones are my next favorite!
This weekend I went to the horse races (which these earrings would have been perfect for)! The weather could not have been better for it. I am the least lucky person I know when it comes to betting and chance. I chose the 4th place horse pretty much every time I placed a bet haha; and of course lucky Austin won almost every time! I can't imagine how competitive it gets at the Kentucky Derby, add that to the bucket list :)
Happy Monday friends!
Happy Easter pretty friends! I somehow managed to get up early enough before church to write this post... what is up with me?! I'm currently sitting on the couch trying to decide what dress I still want to wear today, maxi or long sleeve printed, I do not know, help!!!
How fun and 70's are these sunglasses!! They are probably the lightest pair of sunglasses I have ever own and I honestly forget when I have them on because I can't feel them on my head. These are the Legend by Bolon USA and they come in so many cute colors for spring and summer. I'm also feeling their green and blue pair :)
We all know I love a fun pair of pants. They are just the perfect, versatile piece to have in your closet because I can wear them to work with a blazer or a blouse and then go home and change into a graphic tee to wear them more casual. Going home and changing my pants is one less thing I have to do, and decide on haha!

I'm so, so happy I don't have to wear a coat to work or bundle up when I run to the gym! Spring is my absolute FAVORITE! The flowers and trees are starting to bloom here and it seems like it just happened over night. I don't want to miss a single second of it trapped inside. I can't get enough of the yellow and nude-pinks in my wardrobe either! I'll be wearing thisdress and these sneakers all through summer.
It’s Friday night, I’m watching Our Planet on Netflix and waiting for my banana bread to bake in the over. Now that is my kind of Friday night after a long and tiring week!
I haven’t done a life update on here in a while and thought I should! February and March were big months for me. Starting at the beginning of Feb, my best friend in the whole world got engaged AND my sister did two weeks later!!!!! Have I stopped crying tears of joy? No. My life is in full swing get my besties and sis married, celebrated, working and finding time to manage my Instagram in-between. Mid-Feb, Austin and I went to Seattle for a long weekend getaway and had a blast! We got tattoos together (my first!!)! Stay tuned for that post :)
In between all of this, I got an incredible opportunity at work for a promotion in a new position and started right when we got back from Seattle. Work has been crazy busy and fun but last weekend I was sure happy to be letting loose and going on a girls trip to Nashville to celebrate one of my college bestie’s bachelorette party weekend.
This week is NWA Fashion week and I was super excited when they asked me to attend for press! Last night was their first ever bridal night and I got to see my cute former bosses from Tesori and their curated styles for the show. Saturday I’m excited to attend a panel with Nylon Magazine’s Editor in Chief, Gabrielle Korn. I’m probably most excited about this one. It’s crazy to me that lil' ole Bentonville has events like this now. Next up Bentonville Film Festival in May!
All of this life living, is why I have been a little MIA on here, however I plan on getting back into things a bit more for spring and I am really excited to get into my little hideaway and write some more.
Thanks for stopping by and being apart of Haley’s Dailies!!

I've never gotten more compliments on a perfume than my new Oscar De La Renta Bella Blanca perfume! It has sweet notes of flowers as well as citrus and it's the perfect combination for moving into spring. I love when I come home in the evening and Maui smells like it because I usually spray it and he's near or I pick him up and it gets on him; my favorite haha!
We all wear perfume or scented lotion for obvious reasons, but have you ever thought of the benefits of it and how to truly take care of it?! Let's talk about why it's beneficial and when you should switch it up.
1.) Boosts your mood: Just like wearing a pretty dress you love, smelling pretty can boost your confidence and your mood. When you enhance your mood, you can help relieve stress and anxiety!
2.) Reflects your mood/personality: Feeling happy and playful or romantic and sweet? Bring out how you are feeling with your perfume and everyone around you will sense that energy (literally).
3.) TIP: Store your perfume in the fridge!!! According to perfume experts, storing your perfume on the bottom shelf of the fridge makes them last longer. The "top notes" (the smells you immediately recognize and are most significant) can go bad within just a few short months or lose scent.
4.) Special Occasions: Especially your wedding day! Wearing a new and special perfume on your wedding day and then using it for special date nights or events will always make you remember that day in an extra way. It will essentially create a "smell memory" in your brain that can last a lifetime! And who doesn't want that for their wedding day!? When picking one out, stick to something with one of your favorite notes, but something more romantic or exciting.
One of my favorite ways to keep my perfume fresh during the day is by using the bottle in the morning and then having a rollerball in my purse handy! Smell pretty my friends!
