With back to school in full swing for many parents it's time to make sure you have things in order at home (especially in the bathroom) now that school supplies are a thing of the past. What do I mean by that you ask? I'm talking about making sure all of the bathroom necessities are taken care of so kids (younger and older) can be prepared to head off feeling fresh and clean every day for school. It's never too early to instill in kids that hand washing is important every time they use the bathroom. And that is a habit that should really start at home. So is good personal hygiene for their bodies and their teeth. I know when school is in my kids both seem to take a lot more showers. Before these fun soap dispensers arrived featuring Frozen my daughter always fought me on washing her hands very often. But now that she has fun character soap dispensers from Softsoap she's all the time washing them. It's really quite funny the drastic change that I've seen in her soap usage. But hey, I'm not complaining because at least now I don't have to fight a battle with her. I'm the one that's really been enjoying the Softsoap Luminous Oils body wash the most I think though, I really like the way it leaves my skin feeling so smooth and soft.
My son on the other hand is really getting into this thing about wanting his teeth to be whiter. And since I'm not all about spending hundreds at the dentist to have them bleached he's been using a Colgate Optic White Toothbrush & Pen. He's all sorts of excited about the difference he's been seeing and once again this mamma is super happy to see her kiddo making good and healthy choices for his body.

I have to say nothing beats a new outfit to make your day feel brighter. I know for me it's not real often that I splurge on myself and get an entire new outfit just for the fun of it. But when I do I like to get something that I can wear together, or separate and wear with other things in my closet so I can get the most out of it. One of my new found places to shop online is PinkBasis. They have such a wide selection to choose from, and styles that you don't see on your typical department store racks. This is great because you don't have to worry about that dreaded moment when you run into someone wearing the exact same thing as you. They do have limited quantities so if you see something you like be sure to jump on it right away, otherwise it may be out of stock if you go back and try to order it later. Trust me it happened to me!
About my outfit:
Yes I know it doesn't go together perfectly, but the original shirt I was going to get ended up being out of stock before shipment so I had to pick another last minute and it didn't match my boots anymore. I was too in love with the boots to switch them though. The brown studded boots are super cute and fun to wear even with a skirt, and they are even comfortable! The long skirt is great because you can wear it just for fun or for a more dressy look depending on what top you pair with it. And finally the ruffled black top is super cute and really dresses up anything you pair it with. It's light weight too so it's even nice to wear on warmer days.
So far I'm loving everything I've gotten from the PinkBasis online store. They offer unique apparel and really hot discounts that change all of the time so be sure to bookmark the website and check it out often.
