Style with a Purpose: Beaudin Handbags

I recently discovered Beaudin, a luxury leather goods store on etsy.  Beaudin was founded by a mother and daughter team, which I love!  Each piece is designed to liberate and inspire by providing a portion of the sales to reach, rescue and restore those in sex slavery.  They also provide training and employment for those in difficult situations.  Getting a beautiful bag while helping women, that is something I can get behind.

They sent me this beautiful leopard print crossbody that I immediately fell in love with!  Such a great size and it feels so luxurious.  I wore it all over on our spring break getaway.

They also sent over this gold speckled cowhide wallet.  How gorgeous is this??  So perfect for storing your essentials.

Instagram Roundup

I went post happy this's a recap

We took a day trip to Boone, NC with my family while visiting and had such a great time reminiscing on the campus.

"Spring Break" involved two separate accounts of snow...

Every once in a while I like to throw in a mirror picture, this faux suede drapy duster is a favorite.

I posted about my Sephora Birthday gift for this year, check it out here.

So good to see my family and celebrate my littlest sister's Birthday!

I can't resist a cute mug!  We picked up the pretty light blue one with "I Love You to the Mountains and Back"

I posted about the prettiest sentiment bangle bracelets, I love a well placed quote.

If you haven't seen my post on Wal-Mart finds, check it out here.  I found this necklace along with so many other things.

I will leave you with this beautiful sunset picture I was lucky enough to witness.  What a great reminder of God's love and how His mercies are new every day.

New Spring Finds at Wal-Mart (fashion, home, etc.)

Spring is coming and Wal-Mart is popping out new stuff.  They just came out with a new line Time and Tru and guys it is awesome!!  I love taking a walk through Wal-Mart to see all the new products they have coming out and check out some clearance.  A lot of these are also available online, if I can find them I'll link them :)

Guys these jeans are so nice!  That released hem!!  These are all under $20 as well. 

Those star jeans!!!  I am obsessed with these!!  Stars are having a moment right now and these pants are perfect for spring.  They also have a little distressing and unfinished hem.

Pretty embroidery gets me every time.  These are a boyfriend fit and are so cute.  

It's high quality embroidery guys, so pretty! 

Wal-Mart always has cute hidden gem (haha) jewelry.  When I walked through this past time they weren't so hidden, I wanted all of it!  How nice is this druzy necklace for less than $3???

Time and Tru also has jewelry and guys it is so nice!!

This one was so interesting, I loved all the textures!

It's official Time and Tru is my new favorite Wal-Mart brand!!

How cute is this backpack???  I love the rainbow gradient!

These tote bags are available every year but they are so classic.  Faux pebbled leather, so many colors and they are reversible so you get two colors in one.  They look and feel really nice and remind me of Madewell...but they are $10.  

This color is really pretty for spring.

This was probably one of my absolute favorite finds from Wal-Mart this trip...does this look like Kate Spade or what??  These dome tassel crossbody bags are my favorite!  Oh and they are less tan $15!!!

You may recognize this one from my instagram and blog posts (Five Things Friday, What I got for my Birthday).  This bag is one of my new favorites!!  Such great quality and the perfect size.

How cute are these metal farmhouse inspired buckets??  

If you haven't tried the Ozark Trail tumblers yet and you are a fan of Yeti, definitely check these out!!  We have a couple in our house and they work just as well as the Yetis that we have. 

These tumblers started out wit just silver and then got a few more colors.  I am so excited that they now have super chic, gorgeous colors!!  How pretty are those colors???

Guys, how fun are these crossbody bags???  They would be so cute to wear to Disney ;)  They would also be really cute to throw on just for a fun detail.  I am loving that popcorn one.

Rebecca Mikoff lookalikes for less than $15!!  These crossbody bags are so pretty and they come in all kinds of different colors.  This holographic one is so fun!!

They also have metallic ones like this rose gold one.

This ring crossbody looks really trendy and is less than $15!

This T-shirt dress is so pretty for spring, the floral print is so pretty!!  This one is less than $10!

These mules are from last season but I wanted to share that they were on clearance.  I actually waited and mine just went down to $5 so I had to pick up a pair.  I feel like you can still wear these in the spring as they are open back.

Have you found any good items at Wal-Mart lately?  Let me know down below.

Sephora 2018 Birthday Gift Review and Swatches

All my makeup lovers out there if you aren't a Sephora Rewards Member get on it!!  You get free makeup even if you don't buy anything.  If you do buy things at Sephora you get points that can then be redeemed for products.  For the free products you get a birthday gift every year during your birthday month. 

This year the birthday gift was really exciting!  It was from Bite Beauty and you get an Amuse Bouche Lipstick Mini in Chai, Matte Creme Lip Crayon Mini in Glace, and an Agave Lip Treatment Sample.  There is also a GlamGlow gift if you are more into skincare.

They are "minis" but the size is really good, you get a lot of product.

For the lip treatment you get a sample of the scrub and balm.  I have been using the balm and really enjoying it, haven't tried the scrub but I'm sure it will do the job.

The lip crayon in glace is such a pretty color but it is a little drying on my lips.  I would recommend a chapstick or something to counteract before you put this on.

The lipstick is my favorite, such a great neutral color and it goes on really well.  Not drying, great pigment and stays on well.

All in all I am super happy with the birthday gift this year.  They are the perfect size for your purse and really great amount of products you get for free.
