Summer Must-Haves: Poolside, beachside, or just out for the day!
This post has been sponsored by Neutrogena® and U by Kotex®. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Summer forever, am I right ladies!? Today, I wanted to hop on here and tell you about some of my favorite summer essentials that just make your life a whole lot simpler and, yes, prettier. Who else struggles with over packing things "just in case," even when you are going to the pool and especially going somewhere tropical???
Well, at Walmart, I have found a few items that can cut down your makeup and toiletry bags! Neutrogena® Sheer Smooch Tinted Lip Oil; Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 30; and U by Kotex Click®. Literally everything is so compact and easy to throw in your purse, beach bag, or even clutch.
1.) Neutrogena® Sheer Smooch Tinted Lip Oil: It provides the perfect, sheer tint of color and is made with Vitamin E, camellia seed oil, sunflower seed oil and jojoba oil! So great for your lips while being out in the sun and wind, and it give the perfect touch of color without being overbearing. It comes in four colors and I really want to try the nude one next.
2.) Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer, SPF 30: This tinted moisturizer has a sheer formula with Vitamins A, C, and E. It is designed for natural looking coverage and honestly, it's perfect for being at the pool because sometimes I want to have a little bit of color/coverage for my skin but I hate using traditional sunblocks on my sensitive skin. It gives a nice glow but doesn't make my skin feel greasy or dried out! Plus, no need to double down and bring a moisturizer and your foundation on vacation, just bring this!
3.) U by Kotex® Click: These are perfect for all you active ladies out there. Get full-sized period protection in a small package (seriously, so dang small I was shocked). They are designed so that you can discreetly carry one in your purse or pocket, or even your wallet. The core is made from a 100% elemental bleach-free rayon material, too, so they are non-irritating!!! Also, they provide ultimate comfort with great protection because we all know that the day we want to wear that white bikini is the day we don't feel like we can. Well, now you can throw caution to the wind and forget about it! Wear that chic white bikini!
Thank you so much to Neutrogena® & U by Kotex® for sponsoring this post! I use the Neutrogena® Sheer Smooch Sheer Lip Oil in "I'm Blushing" and the Neutrogena® Protect + Tint Tinted Moisturizer in Fair to Light. Be sure to look for more colors in store and check them out at Walmart.com!

Sometimes on a Friday night or weekend afternoon I'm SO down for a little competition and chill time in. In college, my group of friends and I would decompress by grabbing some pigs in a blanket, some cookies, and have a game night till all hours of the morning. Needless to say, I (also, very much so Austin) was so excited to get to try the new Xbox family member, the All Digital Edition of the Xbox One S console out! It's so my aesthetic in that pretty matte white it fit right in my decor haha!
It's disc-free people!! We all know we don't have the time of day or patience to run to the store to go buy the actual games. Now you can download and build your library in the cloud that travels with you that you will never lose, scratch, or struggle to find a new game to play. We are currently on our way to Florida and brought it so that we could hook it up to the TV at night and stream our latest shows or have a little family competition. The All Digital Edition of the Xbox One S console store has 2,200 games including more than 200 exclusives, so pick your style and download! PLUS!! 4K streaming so you can Netflix (or Hulu or Amazon) and Chill to your hearts desire ;) That is honestly what I'm probably most excited about because if I want to watch anything other than Netflix on my (kinda smart) tv, I have to plug my laptop in. *rolls eyes thinking about getting off the couch to stream Amazon Prime.*
You can purchase it at Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, and Microsoft Stores! At only $249.99, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is the most affordable way to start playing Xbox One games plus all your 4K streaming.
So what are you waiting for people, get playing!!

Always down for a little staycation with my man! We were so exited to be working with Crystal Bridges a few weeks ago to kickoff their summer series Color Field in the North Forest, Nature's Nation in the indoor, travel exhibit area, and their Forest Concert Series. The Color Field will be open through September 30th, 2019 and Nature's Nation will be open through September 9th, so hit them at the same time so you don't miss a thing! The Forest concert series will be over on July 27th, somehow that is already creeping up.
The first night we enjoyed happy hour with the artists and listened to the artist panel for the Color Field. Our favorite pieces in this exhibit are the bright metal sculptures by Typoe, so fun and they just bring out the kid in you! It's crazy how much color can psychologically effect you and your mood.
Claire Helen Ashley’s large, inflatable sculptures are touchable!!! They are all representation's of the women's body and how they can be beautiful no matter how different they are. Feminism in all the right ways :))))
The indoor exhibit, Nature's Nation, features art from Frank Lloyd Wright, Valerie Hegarty ("burned" painting on the right), and James Audubon (bird drawing in the middle - probably one of my favorites). Many of the works encourage you to think about how the human race effects nature and to embrace the beauty outside around you. Their promotion of creating a healthy lifestyle that embraces nature is brought to life with so many beautiful pieces!
Overall, Crystal Bridge's mission is “to welcome ALL in a setting that unites art and nature.” Doesn't matter if you are an outdoor or indoor person because they have a spot for all! The Museum offers a wide range of temporary exhibitions each year, and the artwork in our permanent collection galleries changes often. Some of their signature American works include Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter, Kerry James Marshall’s Our Town, and Jimson Weed by Georgia O’Keeffe.
Don't miss lunch or coffee at the Eleven Cafe at the heart of the museum (literally under the hanging gold heart sculpture). Austin and I love to come walk around the grounds, hit up any new exhibit, visit my FAVORITE Along the Shore by William Trost Richards and sip on a latte. It's my favorite weekend or weeknight activity :)
To end the day at the Summer Series, be sure to drop by the Forrest Concert series!! A great place to bring your kids or enjoy a date night under the trees and enjoy a glass of wine, or a popsicle if that's more your style.
Crystal Bridges holds such a special place in my heart here in Bentonville and if you haven't been I highly encourage you to visit, whether you are out of town or live in NWA, trust me you will be super impressed!
A huge & special thank you to Soapbox Influence, Visit Bentonville, Crystal Bridges Museum, Tavola Trattoria for sponsoring us for an amazing weekend!! We love you!! XX Haley
One of my goals for 2019 is to be more organized with my blog and content planning. I'm so grateful for all of the opportunities that came my way in 2018 and the growth that I have worked for. All thanks to my readers and followers this has been possible and continues to be a growing dream for me. With all that mushy gushy said, I know that I need to be more strict with planning posts and keeping up with brand deadlines (I mean who doesn't). It's hard being your own boss (even if it's part time), especially making yourself sit down and take the time to plan.
I FOUND A FIX!

Hi Friends! Happy Black Friday! Talking about skin today, you know it is my biggest trouble haha. I have been using Garnier's Micellar Cleansing water and Rosewater hydrating mist before heading to the gym and when I want to take my makeup off after a long day at work. My skin feels so clean and soft afterwords and it's feeling healthier than ever since I haven't been wearing makeup to the gym! What I love most about them is that they don't leave my face feeling oily like other makeup removers do. The Micellar Cleansing Water comes in three options for any skin types, and all sensitive! My top one is the All-in-1 Mattifying for oily skin, but on drier days, I like to us the All-in-1 for all skin types. They even have one for waterproof makeup removal!
Pour, Press, PROOF! It is crazy how easy it takes your makeup off, no need for harsh rubbing or rinsing it off!!
This Rose Facial Mist spray instantly hydrates and refreshes skin, even after makeup. It's made with rose water and can be used as a moisturizer to hydrate, before face makeup as a primer, after makeup to set it, and anytime throughout the day to refresh skin. I love using it right after I wash my face to hold in moisture.
Use my Ulta promo code GRNSAVE2! This code is for $2.00 off any micellar on Ulta.com (excluding travel size). I know you ladies are heading there for Black Friday anyways, so be sure grab the right Micellar water for you skin type and hydrate it after with the Rose Soothing Facial Mist! Ready. Set. CLEANSE!

Who else gets tired of their workout routine like two weeks in? I'm always looking for new ways to vamp up my workouts and I think I found the perfect solution! The FitPlan app allows you to choose the right kind of workout for where you are in your fitness journey. At home, at the gym, or working on your cardio, it has everything!! I'm currently finishing up my first plan, the Lower Body & Booty guide with Jen Selter and it makes me so sore... I love it!!! It mixes the perfect amount of weight, body weight, and cardio workouts that I look for but pushed me to try new movements. It's also a fun little extra that some of the biggest fitness gurus teach on the app and it seems like you are working out with them, feels pretty bada** haha.
Use my code BEAT50 to get your first month free! It's only $10 a month which is the same or cheaper than a monthly gym member ship! Trust me, your body will thank you (after it's done being sore haha).
Thanks FitPlan for sponsoring this post, seeing change in your body is something wonderful :)
Leggings and top fromLululemon and on sale right now!
Love, love, love LA and I am so in love with this map from Mapiful!! With Mapiful, you can create a custom map of any place, choose the colors, layout, and size with just a few clicks. I know I will be keeping this up in my home for a very long time to come :) I think it would be so cute to have three in a row, one of where you currently live and then other places close to your heart.
I will be having to move into a new apartment this summer and I'm already thinking about where I will be hanging it!
Thanks Mapiful for the beautiful map!

Basic Invite also offers a handy address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on any form of social media to request their friends and family's addresses which will be stored in your account and can then be selected during the design process. Easy peasy!

Views I can't get enough of and fresh powder on the slopes each day, what more could I want for a ski trip!? I love that first ride up the mountain each day and soaking up the pure silence in the snow; so refreshing and peaceful. Austin and I stayed at a cute little AirBnb this last week in Fraser, Colorado for Spring Break (probably our official "last" spring break ever, so sad). Let me tell ya, he was so patient with me on the slopes, but pushed me to improve and adventure when he knew I needed to. So much so that we accidentally ended up in basically black trees, which I ended up having to walk through because I'm a hot mess, and finished out on a blue black! At least I can say I did it haha!!
My cutie roomie and her family were there as well which was so fun to get to run into them while on the slopes. Who would have thought the first time we all went four years ago that we would end up as besties and college roommates? :)
ALSO!!! We officially started our YouTube Channel!! We are just getting the feel for all the video tech, but I am so dang excited about it! Be sure to subscribe to my channel and watch our first video to get a glimpse at slow-mo ski me and just a tiny fraction of all our laughs this last week!
