RewardStyle Conference 2018 | #caredontcompare

Another Monday, another post about the 2018 RewardStyle Conference. We've finally made it to Day Two where I got to actually take part in the festivities! If you haven't read my Meet & Greet post or checked out my Striped Romper from last week, it'll help this post to make more sense (in addition to my travel troubles and why I missed Day One altogether). Fortunately, Day Two well made up for the flight issues, detours, and hunting down my luggage! I woke up super early to shoot the looks from my last two #rsthecon (the hashtag we used at the conference) posts and then switched into this shoulder showing stunner I brought for Day Two's keynote speeches, one on one brand meetings, and chit chatting with additional companies in attendance. Oh, and meeting so many new friends!



RewardStyle Conference 2018 | Striped Romper

Express striped off the shoulder bell sleeve romper

Today is the second edition of my RewardStyle Conference experience and I'm sharing one of my favorite pieces for Spring - this bright striped off the shoulder bell sleeve romper! It seriously screams Spring & Summer and is incredibly comfortable to wear. If you read my RewardStyle Conference 2018 Meet & Greet post then you know I got stuck at the airport (well multiple airports) for all of Day One - missing the initial influencer event and then, unfortunately, the retro pool party. But, I was determined to wear my outfit, or at least get photos in it, so we ended up shooting it the morning of Day Two. 



RewardStyle Conference 2018 | Meet & Greet

Hello, Friends! This is the first blog post of the week, and PHEW, Things have been busy! As many of you know who have been following along here and on Instagram, I attended the 2018 RewardStyle Conference in Dallas last Thursday - Saturday. If you're wondering, "Who is RewardStyle?" They developed (and the new app that I talked about in a recent post) that I'm sure most you are familiar with. It's a technology that allows influencers like myself to monetize our blogs and social sites (commissionable links, blog widgets, etc.). Attending the conference has been one of my biggest goals since I was accepted as an influencer. When I found out I was invited I literally screamed, then teared up, then immediately sent in my "YES!" RSVP. 



Sephora Spring VIB Sale | Two Days To Shop

2018 sephora spring sale favorites

Happy Sunday, Friends! It's another fab end of the week because the 2018 Sephora Spring Sale is happening now for Rouge (15%), VIB (15% off) and Beauty Insiders (10%)! Just use the codes YAYROUGE, YAYBIG, and YAYINSIDER. The discounts can be used until the end of the day tomorrow and are well worth it because most beauty brands never put their products on sale. I know I posted some of these same products last Friday but since I'm traveling, decided to include the items I brought with me - things I can literally not live without! You can also check out my full face makeup routine on Instagram for more products I love or my makeup routine tab under SHOP at the top of my blog.



Official Launch | The Amanda Necklace

I am SO excited to finally announce the official launch of the Amanda Necklace! If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen a sneak peak when it went on preorder late last week. I've been working with grace and hudson the last couple weeks to design and create a custom piece inspired by my journey thus far as a blogger. This necklace is incredibly special to me and one of the coolest things I've been able to take part in since I started Pardon Muah. It was so kind of designer + creator, Stacy, of g+h to go along with me on this idea and to truly embrace my vision. 



A Pop of Flamingo Print

The backdrop for these photos is now one of my new favorites! We were shooting and passed by this adorable ice cream & sandwich shop - I just couldn't help but stop. They even gave me a cream soda when we went in to check it out! The bright pops of color paired with this flamingo printed sweatshirt make me oh, so happy. And are quite appropriate for the Spring weather that has officially arrived. 



Sephora Spring Bonus

The Sephora Spring Bonus event is here! If you're a Rouge member, you'll receive 15% off your purchase starting today (until the 16th)! Which is amazing because most beauty products, especially higher end brands and perfumes rarely go on sale. If you're a VIB member you'll receive 15% off starting next Friday, April 20, and Beauty Insiders will get 10% starting the same day (until the 23rd). If you're not sure of how the tiered spending system works at Sephora, or you want to sign up for members rewards, you can check out their website HERE

Why You Should Download The App

Hello, Friends and Happy Thursday! I can't believe it's already the end of the week - they always go so quickly when you need them to seriously slow down. I'll be traveling half of next week and this girl needs more time to plan and pack. I hope you were able to read yesterday's special SHOPBOP Event of The Season sale post... so many amazing pieces at 20-25% off! I snagged a couple things that should be arriving today so I plan to share them Friday on Instagram. 

For today's post, I wanted to talk a little bit, okay a lot a bit, about the App. Many of you have probably heard of before or even already utilize it, but for those of you who don't, I'd love to tell you why it's such a valuable tool for you, and for me! 



SHOPBOP | Event of The Season

shop bop sale of the season picks

If you ever needed an excuse to shop, I'll give you one today! Shopbop, a super cute retailer of chic clothing and fun high-end brands, is having their event of the season where they offer 20% off $500 or less AND 25% off $500 or more using the code EVENT18. The reason it's a big deal?! Many of the brands Shopbop carries never go on sale except for times like this. And who wants to pay full price for $200 denim and oversized designer sunglasses? So, now until Saturday, you can get all sorts of goodies for less - I like it! Make sure to shop soon because the best things go fast!



Sweet Spring Fragrances

Sponsored by Mirum. All opinions expressed are my own.

Spring is finally here, and though it may not feel like it, there are some amazing new products to try! Many of them with beautiful packaging like the fab collection I'm sharing today by Caress at Walgreens. They just came out with an incredible line of body sprays covered in fun florals (hint, hint the pink is my fav hehe). I've actually never tried a more affordable fragrance from Walgreens before but I'm loving these so much. I really like the way they designed the bottle and the way the product disperses! PERFECT to keep on hand in your gym bag or car for before and/or after a workout. I went back to barre classes recently and, many times, run errands after and always want to smell fresh - so you better believe Pink Peony is already in my car. 

Favorite Lipstick & Liner Combos

Happy Friday, Friends! I hope you're having a great end of the week. I hit up Pure Barre early this morning to get in my fourth class of the week for boot camp, ran through Starbucks, and then hurried home to finish up this post. I get so many questions about what I wear regularly on my lips so I thought I would share my most worn lipstick & liner combos. You can always find a full list of my makeup routine HERE as well. 

Keep reading to see photos of these combos on my lips!



Best Denim Shorts Under $100

ten denim shorts under $100

SHOP THE SHORTS: One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten

I asked yesterday on Instagram which post I should publish today... denim shorts under $100 or an Instagram roundup... and it was almost even! So it's affordable denim shorts today and an IG roundup very soon. I've been meaning to talk about well-priced jean shorts for a while now because NOW is the time to buy them. Seriously, if you don't all the good ones will be gone and by the time hot summer weather rolls around, stores will be stocking up for Fall. Above you'll find links to the ten I've included, and below you'll find additional shorts I own and love. The ones above are all from Nordstrom because they offer free shipping and returns, and with shorts, sometimes you have to order multiple sizes to get it right. All of the shorts featured say they run true to size but everyone's body is different - definitely read the reviews if they have them!

Last year I only had two or three pairs of denim shorts I wore over and over and over, so this year I went in the opposite direction and have purchased at least ten! I'm such an all or nothing person haha. But hey, I pretty much live in them during the warmer months paired with a comfy tee or tank. So I figure it'll be worth it and at least one pair will always be clean. Plus, they have all been super affordable, like the ones I'm sharing in this post. I tried to include different lengths, waist heights, and distressing vs. non-distressing. I've been loving high and low waists this year, as sometimes mid-rise can hit in the wrong place (again, it all depends on the particular short and the body). High waist works well with all of the trendy crop tops, and low waist is usually quite flattering and comfy. 

I hope you'll find some shorts you love if you're on the hung and have a fabulous Wednesday!

The Perfect Fix For Damaged Hair

Happy Monday! I hope all of you had a wonderful Easter!

If you've been following me for long, you know I love to share new hair & beauty products! This year my goal has been to try new things at different price points and from different brands to give all of you a variety of choices. Obviously, I never share products I don't like or don't use, but today I'm extra excited about this 3-step system! Like, really, really excited lol.

If you follow me on Instagram (@pardonmuahinsta), you know that I live streamed a fun Nexxus demo from my local Ulta store this past Saturday. An expert was there to talk more about their new Nexxus Keraphix line and was also giving out samples (I happily took several haha!). She explained to me the products are designed for severely damaged hair (due to color, hot tools, etc.) and that they are scientifically proven to repair internal damage. To which I said, "I need all of this in my life!"
