Keeping Your Stuff Sand Free at the Beach

Is there anyone else who can agree that summer is pretty much the best thing ever? Warm sunshine, trips to the beach, and lots of relaxing time! The beach is definitely my happy place. The toasty sand and blue water make me a calmer, happier person. The only thing I’m not a fan of is trying to keep our belongings sand-free at the beach!

Natural Care For The Family

As a single mom, I am always on a budget. However, when it comes to beauty, I like to be picky with what I use!  A few months ago, I had to purchase a list of basic beauty essentials to send to school for my son, such as a comb/brush, toothbrush, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, etc.  They were going to work with the students on how to use these items, basic needs, and how to care for themselves! At the time, I needed to buy the items quickly, so I didn’t choose natural items!  After buying everything on the list, I realized, I should choose natural beauty for the family!

Loving Your Body After Having A Baby

Loving Your Body After Having A Baby

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I have always battled with self-image and since having my children it continues to be an issue that I’ve struggled with. I guess I’ve never gotten out of the mindset of from when I was in school, I was always the short overweight oddball. Lately, I’ve decided that it’s time to love the body I have. Now i’m learning how important loving your body after having a baby is. 

Loving your body after having a baby. 

Pregnancy

I have grown and birthed four beautiful children. My skin stretched and warped as they grew, not always returning unhindered. There are stretch marks and not in the same place. I was lucky enough to be able to help create these beautiful lives, how could I not love a body that did that. I’ve also survived a horrific car accident that should have killed me. I broke three out of four limbs, and have had eight surgeries in just over two years. I have massive scaring up my left forearm, where I had a plate and eight screws put in.

While I may not love every inch of my body, My kids don’t see the pain. They don’t see the scars of the past or the scars from the accident. They see mommy, whom they love no matter what I look like. My children don’t care if I’m super skinny, or if my hair is always done. All they want is for me to be present and happy.

So with bathing suit season right around the corner, I’ve been looking for something that is going to flatter what accents I have and hid my issue areas. Look no further then Tempt Me swimsuits. From one piece to bikinis there is something for every body type. I chose two different styles, and the main thing I was looking for was coverage. Other places when you get the coverage you don’t always get style but this is where Tempt Me is different. They strive to do both!

SwimDress

Off The Shoulder

I love the One Piece Polka Falbala Swimdress, it gives me that vintage feel. I love how I can put it on and feel completely comfortable around anyone. The second swimsuit I chose from Tempt Me was the Vintage Off Shoulder Ruffled Swimsuits. I love the bright colors in this swimsuit, and how the black of the base sets off the colors in a pop. To be honest, when ordering online I was a little worried because I don’t usually get the bikini style bottom but I was really impressed by just how much coverage this swimsuit provides.  I usually HATE shopping for swimsuits but Tempt Me made it easy and fast. If you would like more information Be sure to check them out on their Website, Facebook, or Instagram.

Loving Yourself

Todays Takeaway:

You are beautiful. Learning to love yourself is one of the most empowering things that you can truly do. When those little ones look into your eyes remember that YOU are their entire world. So love your scars, love your stretch marks because you are amazing! Learn to love your body after having a baby.
