The Best Fourth of July Sales 2018


fourth of july sales

Happy Weekend Monday, Friends! I can't believe we are only a few days away from the Fourth of July. Phew! Time goes by too quickly sometimes. Although, I have to say I've already got the itch for cool Fall weather, buying excessive amounts of sweaters, and watching Hocus Pocus with a Sweater Weather candle burning. Oh, I can't wait! But, before I skip too far ahead... in preparation of the holiday, I've rounded up some of the best 2018 Fourth of July sales happening now and will be updating this list as we get closer.

How To: Easy (Fancy) 4th of July Hair


This post is sponsored by Mirum and all opinions are my own.

Summer is my least favorite hair season. Why? Because it means humidity, rain, and excessive heat. All things that my hair type hates. Well, it might like the moisture, but I sure don't like the look of a big, frizzy mane. This means I look for a shampoo & conditioner combo that nourishes and repairs. The last thing I need is weighed down locks and additional damage... no, ma'am! I've blogged about Suave Professionals® Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Shampoo & Conditioner previously and still reach for them often. I don't know why, but repeated use of my super hydrating hair products can leave my hair feeling heavy, so I love to change up with something lighter every 2-3 weeks.

And luckily, both of these products are designed with weightless moisture!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog 2018: First Look

When I found out yesterday that the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog had been released I just about jumped out of my car in excitement (I had just gotten home and was checking out some IG stories in my car... #phoneaddict haha). I literally ran inside and added it to my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Guide as fast as I could and then, of course, had to check it out for myself.

Fourth of July Outfit Ideas

Monday again. How quickly they roll around, especially if you have a busy weekend prior. Justin took off last Friday so my days have been totally messed up lol. His brother came to stay with us Friday night - Sunday afternoon so I tried to take a small break from social media as it feels super wrong to be stuck to my phone and computer while hosting a guest, even though it's family, and even though he doesn't care - he's so sweet he took Justin and I's first photo together in front of the new house!

I got a couple dm's on IG this weekend asking if I was going to share any Fourth of July outfit ideas and it made me realize I really needed to get on the ball, as the 4th is only nine days away! Where in the world did the first part of the year go?!

Beauty Favorites: June Edition



Today definitely feels like my Saturday, because J took today off so yesterday I spent most of the day wrapping a lot of work up so we can spend some quality time together. Which also includes taking several outfit photos to help me get through next week! We've found that it's easiest to get them all done at once... with me running in and out of the house in different outfits... sweating... I'm sure our neighbors seriously wonder what I do for a living. 

For today's Face It Friday, I'm sharing some of my new beauty favs from the month.

$14 Heart-Shaped Sunglasses

Summer is officially ONE day away! Where does time go, seriously?!

You just can't have summer without some sassy shades and I've been crushing on these heart-shaped sunglasses since last year. Luckily, they brought them back AND they are a fab dupe for a trendy designer pair that is super popular this year and costs hundreds of dollars. These are only $14!

Striped Shorts Under $50

I was trying to decide which blog post and pictures to share today (I know I need to get back in the routine of Motivation Monday, Wear It Wednesdays, and Face It Friday. They've been a bit of a mish-mash lately), and I had to choose the outfit with the coffee. I'm writing this on Sunday night and am already looking forward to an iced coconut mocha macchiato tomorrow morning (I'm all out of almond creamer so it looks like I'll be hitting the grocery too - ugh). I've been trying to abstain from soy vanilla lattes because I was drinking them way too often and the only drink I've ever liked with coconut milk is the one I just mentioned above.

I feel extra rejuvenated from the weekend and it's such a good feeling to have. I feel like Mondays can make or break the whole week so starting it right is crucial. Saturday I was able to get a couple outfit photos done for the gram with J, filmed a try-on sesh for IG, caught up on some emails, and then watched endless hours of Netflix (I watched the entire second season of Queer Eye Friday night!). Sunday I cleaned the house, organized, and FINALLY set up a computer monitor in my office. I cannot tell you how amazing it is to write this post on a screen that isn't 11 inches wide lol. We have it set up so it plugs straight into my laptop projecting the same screen and files which makes my life so much easier. 

And being able to see more detail when editing these photos was a dream - just like these $45 striped shorts! I should have shared them sooner, as they are already starting to sell out - seriously run and snag a pair as fast as you can! They are the comfiest, most practical shorts you can style a ton of different ways.

It's finally Friday, Friends! This week has been a long one, as most of them usually are, but probably even more so because I've SO been looking forward to sharing this post for the past couple days. I've had so many requests, as of late, for my fav beauty buys and what products I'll be wearing this summer. So I've teamed up with eBay to share an amazing summertime bronzer & blush combo, a skin mist that brings mega luminosity, and a surf foam spray that will give your hair the perfect texture for teasing!

How I Reduce Facial Redness

forever21 i need a coffee break pj

Good Morning! I've been planning this post for months now and I'm so excited to finally share my skin redness reducing routine with all of you. I've suffered from vascular redness in my face for as long as I can remember, and have developed a minor case of rosacea over the last couple years, so I finally decided to try and calm things down. It wasn't until I started seeing an aesthetician in California that I realized why my skin looked pink when I wasn't wearing makeup. She quickly and very matter of factly told me that my face is very vascular, sensitive, and that I also have rosacea - and I was sort of shocked... and slightly offended. Which now I know is silly because these things are very common and there are lots of products out there to help inflamed, angry, or naturally pink skin.

Twist Front Tops Under $50

Hi, Hey, Hello! It feels like forever since I've put a post up. Unfortunately, Monday's post was short lived due to a shortage of the product in stores, but it will be back in July! Today I'm talking twist front tops under $50. Twist and knot front detailing is all the rage right now and there are so many amazing affordable options. Tank, short sleeve, long sleeve, ruffle sleeve, 3/4 sleeve... you name it, it probably exists with a twist front at a great price!

Coconut Margarita Recipe

If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen my recent LIVE where Justin and I shared my favorite coconut margarita recipe - and as promised, I'm sharing here on the blog today too! That way anyone who missed the LIVE or who doesn't follow me on IG, can get a copy of the recipe. You may be wondering why I decided to share a coconut margarita recipe?... I normally don't share much about food and drink here on Pardon Muah but when Justin and I moved back to Virginia we found the most amazing taco restaurant where they serve the world's BEST coconut margarita! So J surprised me one day and ordered all the ingredients to make me coconut margs at home - and in true engineering fashion, within a couple tries, he got it perfect! I was chatting about it on social media and was shocked by how many requests we got to share the recipe - so happy to share today!
