Hair, Skin, & Nails on POINT with Nature Made + Enter to WIN!

This post was sponsored by Nature Made as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

Good morning!!!  Well, it’s a new day and the sun is shining…and by that I mean it was literally 90 degrees yesterday.  I cannot believe it’s already getting so hot outside!  We let the boys get in the pool this weekend and summer is right around the corner.  You know what I think about when I hear “summer”???  SKIN!!!  Lots of it…as in I have to show my skin more.  Sigh….

As I’ve gotten older and I’m about to venture into the “late thirties” *shutter* taking care of my skin has been more of a priority.  I’ve been taking vitamins to help my hair, skin, and nails for years and I can definitely tell they make a difference.  I want to be around for a long time and watch Connor grown up, so taking those little extra steps now to ensure better health make me feel a bit better.

Nature Made® Hair, Skin, and Nails Vitamins are an easy way to ensure I’m taking care of myself.  I wish I could say I naturally had beautiful hair, skin, and nails…but I don’t.  I know a healthy amount of biotin helps your hair, skin, and nails grow strong.   My hairdresser recommendeds I take something with biotin to help and it truly has.  I also try to drink a lot of water during the day and stay away from carbonated drinks.

I’ve trusted Nature Made® Vitamins since I was a teenager and I’ve never been disappointed.  I picked mine up at my local Walmart.  Nature Made® Vitamins actively pursue health and wellness through product innovations, quality ingredients and being #1 Pharmacist Recommended so they can help you reach your health goals, little by little, every day. 

I know every little thing I do today can help me have a better tomorrow.  Let’s face it I like to have fun and I want to be able to stay active and HAVE FUN for years to come.

Let the Good Times Roll at the DFW Auto Show with Capital One!

Do you remember buying your first car y’all?  I do…

Well, actually I had to share my first car with my twin sister because we pretty much shared everything!  We didn’t get separate cars until college. I remember what a HUGE deal it was to get a car & there’s just something about having your own set of wheels that says “I’m all grown up”.

Well, at least we thought we were.  I’ll take you down memory lane here…check out our first car the Geo Prism.   She was a good one 🙂  Thankfully we didn’t fight too much over sharing a car because we went to school together and worked at the same place.

Now almost twenty years later our lives have taken us down different paths and we’ve learned money doesn’t grow on trees!  Having a car is a privilege, not a right.  I miss living at home & I sure do miss when we could fill up that tank for $5 dollars.

That’s the thing about growing up…you learn responsibility and how to take care of yourself.  Now Bonnie and I live in separate states.  She’s back home in Arkansas and I moved to the Dallas area.  I will say the one thing you must have in the metroplex is a reliable CAR!  You may find yourself asking questions like “How do I even start the car buying process” or “How much can I afford?”  Thanks to Capital One® Auto Navigator® you can go through the process of pre-qualifying for a Capital One Auto Loan in the comfort of your own home.

With the Capital One® Auto Navigator® website you can pre-qualify for auto financing and see their financing terms before visiting a dealer.

I recently went through the process of prequalifying using the Capital One® Auto Navigator® it took less than TWO minutes to complete the entire thing!

Look and see what cars are out there from over 12,000 participating dealers across the country, including in your area.  You are sure to find something!

Customize your options:

This process has absolutely no impact to your credit score.

You can also print out a pre-approval letter when you are ready to go to the dealership!  It’s so easy and it takes hardly any time.  I had a tougher time deciding what car to look for than filling out the Capital One® Auto Navigator® process.  You can also see your personalized APR and monthly payment on each car once you pre-qualify for financing. Then build an offer and see how your financing terms change.

DFW AUTO SHOW!!!

Capital One is a sponsor at the DFW Auto Show this year and THIS CHICK will be going for the 3rd year in a row!  I always have so much fun at the DFW Auto Show and you better believe I come home wanting a brand new car every single time!

If you get the chance to attend the DFW Auto Show do it!  You can see, touch, and even sit in the cars!  Then you’ll know exactly what car you want and you can come home to see if you qualify for it.

The DFW Auto Show is one of the largest new car and truck shows in the nation – and local car enthusiasts, families and potential buyers flock to see the latest and greatest car styles, models, trends and technology.

The Show is open to the public from March 22-26, 2017

Capital One will show attendees how they’ve developed Auto Navigator and invite all of you to join them in the Capital One® Auto Navigator® Garage located in Hall F of the Show. Car enthusiasts and potential car buyers can learn more about how they can find and finance the car of their dreams with Capital One® Auto Navigator®.

On Saturday and Sunday (March 25-26), Chip Foose, a well-known automobile designer and industry innovator, will be at the Capital One® Auto Navigator® Garage to meet with fans and talk about the latest and greatest in the auto industry – including car financing.

Throughout the Show, attendees can visit the Capital One® Auto Navigator® Garage where they’ll have a chance to see Auto Navigator website demos, engage in an interactive photo booth, and see a Chip Foose-custom designed car.

Seven in 2017…

I feel like I haven’t written from the heart in a while.  I have loved blogging and writing my little daily (or weekly) ramblings.  I honestly can’t believe my little part of the Internet has survived 11 years. Never in a million years did I think anyone but me would read this website.  I’ve made countless friendships, been given a ton of opportunities I would have never had outside of blogging, and it forces me to move outside of my comfort zone.

I love to read and often times you’ll find me with my head stuck in my Kindle enjoying a good romance novel.   I also enjoy drama and mystery books.  A book is a magical escape and I love watching a good story unfold.  I’m trying to teach Connor the joy of reading and how it can open up your imagination, but so far first grade has been a pretty rough year.   I get it…he’s a boy and they are downright figgity and can’t sit still.  We are working on containing our voices and body from touching others! LOL!

Speaking of reading: LOVE THIS SERIES!  If you are looking for something great to add to your Kindle check out Pepper Winter’s series Crown of Lies.  Sooooooo good!  She’s absolutely one of my favorite Authors and she can whisk you away in her books… her writing is above and beyond- an emotional journey.  Start with “Crown of Lies” & finish with the sequel “Throne of Truth”.  

Products from Amazon.com

My Mom and Dad came to visit this past weekend and we celebrated Connor’s 7th birthday.

I haven’t done a party, but I did tell him we could have a sleepover or something soon.  I’m sure he won’t let me forget!  I get homesick a lot, but on the other hand I don’t think I would be who I am now unless I had “flown the nest” if you will and spread my wings.  Growing up a twin it’s especially hard to break out into your own person, it’s also the best thing ever having a constant friend.

We’ve finally started really settling in our new home and had a brand new dining table delivered yesterday.  I’m so excited about it!  Almost 16 years of marriage and we finally have a legit dining table!  Holla!  I love our house….it’s not brand spanking new and there seems to be something that always needs fixing, but it’s very “homey” and I love that about it.

Here is the new table and chairs:  (For more information check out my Instagram)

Anyway….what are your plans for spring break next week?  I’m not sure what Connor and I will be doing…but right now I am just trying to soak in every sweet second.

Catcha Later 😉 xo- Becky


School Valentine’s 2017

I wanted to share the cute Valentine’s I got this year for Connor’s class from Tiny Prints.  I made these online in less than 10 minutes and they were under $20 bucks!  SCORE!

Right now everything at Tiny Prints is 40% off! They always have the best deals.  One of my favorite items are these Tiny Prints Custom Photo Notepads.

I got the supplies for the key-chains on Amazon and they were super easy to do as well.

YOU CAN DO THIS CRAFT ANYTIME! NOT JUST FOR VALENTINE’S DAY! I KNOW THE KIDDOS LOVE TO HANG THESE ON THEIR BACKPACKS 🙂
