LooC’s March & April Faves

Hello lovely LooCers!  How was your March…and April?  I hope you are all thawed out and snow-free by now.  It IS Spring, right?  I’m pretty sure the Equinox and clocks “springing forward” and all that is supposed to mean the official start of Spring…I think Mother Nature is starting to catch on.

These last two months were a whirlwind of birthday celebrations, baby showers, work, and school, but we did manage to sneak in a quick family vacation down to Florida.  Much of this LooC List was inspired by that trip, so, let’s get to it!

M❤A❤C Lip Balm

This makes LooC List appearance #2 for MAC Cosmetics 👏🏼(applause, applause)👏🏼.  Back in January, it was all about the highlighters (which I am still LOVING…and probably due to refresh, now that I think about it).  This month, it’s all about the balm.  There is only one thing to say about MAC’s Tendertalk Lip Balm💋 muah 💋

MAC Tendertalk Lip BalmThe conditioning balm comes in 5 shades.  I was immediately drawn to the bright “Teddy Pink” on display. Luckily, MAC expert, Flow, explained that the tint darkens, after application, based on the your body chemistry.  This means that the already brightly-pigmented balms will get REALLY wild.  Since I am an au-natural-lip kind of girl, I stuck with Flow’s advice and ended up with the two lightest shades–Candy Wrapped and Pretty Me Up.  All I really want in a lip gloss is soft sparkle without any sticky-icky and MAC’s Tender Talk Lip Balm delivers!!!

It normally runs about $21 a tube–I know, a bit pricier than Softlips at CVS.  BUT, if you are a military girl and have a MAC in your Post Exchange, they discount about 20% off retail.  I also linked a less-expensive option for ‘ya (about $19), but they’re showing low inventory for Pretty Me Up, so grab yours now!!

Lululemon Festival Bag

After being inducted into the Diaper Bag Carriers of America (aka–a Mom), I thought my days of small purse carrying were behind me forever.  What’s the point?  You need a big bag to hold everything, right?

Lululemon Festival Bag



That’s usually the case for me.  But, for our March getaway to Disney World, I did not want to lug a giant shoulder bag around the parks in the hot sun.  A few days before we left, I wandered into Lululemon and saw this adorable pink crossbody Festival bag.




Lululemon Festival Bag

It was perfect!  Not too big, not too small, with plenty of room for my wallet, phone, both Tendertalk lip balms 💄😉, and a pair of sunnies–all the necessities for a Disney day!  Lululemon quality, in a pretty pink, for under $70…it was an easy sale.  And I’m super happy to say it held up amazingly well!  I will definitely be using this bag for many vacations to come.

P.S…Military members get 15% off at Lululemon!!  Don’t forget to ask for your discount at checkout.

P.P.S…do NOT put your new Tendertalk Lip Balm in the non-zip pocket and then ride the Star Wars motion ride…just sayin’ 😭


Gibson x Living in Yellow

I probably don’t need to remind you what a fan girl I am for Living in Yellow.  If you don’t know about Erin S. and her amazingly popular blog, then you need to go check it out (after you finish reading this and signing up for our LooC community, of course!)

Well, recently, Erin teamed up with well known clothing line, Gibson, for an entire wardrobe of Spring trends and everyday essentials.  There are SO many to love, I was tempted to just put the entire line on the LooC List.  But, I managed to tone it down a bit for ya (you’re welcome) to bring you the #1 piece (in my opinion) from the Gibson x Living in Yellow collaboration.

➡➡ If you can only buy one piece from this collection, this is it: the perfect tee ⬅⬅Gibson X LIY Felicity tee

Seriously!  It is THE perfect tee.  It’s not sheer (yes, even in white!), it’s not clingy, it’s not too low-cut, and it’s not crazy expensive!  It IS….the softest tee you’ve ever felt, the easiest wash-and-wear top, and just as vibrant as the pictures promise.  I will be going back to buy the black one right after I finish writing this. 

These fit generously, so size down.  For reference, I am usually a small in tops, and the XS fits with room to spare.

Dreft Wipes

Last item for this LooC List is not super glam…it’s not even a teensy bit glam…but, bear with me.  I have been using Dreft cleaning wipes for over 3 years, now, and I cannot rave about them enough.  They are more than a typical cleaning wipe.  They have some kind of magic stain lifting power in them, I swear!  Red wine, chocolate, dog 💩 (ugh…#Momlife), ink, and many other questionable substances are powerless to whatever DREFT infuses in these mighty wipes.  And, as an added bonus, they smell like baby powder.  I definitely prefer these over Clorox wipes, and keep them stocked at all times.

Lucky for me (and, now, YOU), Amazon sells these magical wipes in bulk.  Give them a try, and let me know what you think!  Seriously, I use these on pretty much every surface in our house–baby changing tables, clothes, couch cushions, pillows (the list goes on).  These are my ultimate stain-fighting champs!

Get on the List!
