60 Second Beauty: Pacifica Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes

Pacifica Coconut Cleansing Wipes Review

Nothing evokes summer memories quite like the scent of real coconut, which is why I'm absolutely in love with Pacifica Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes. One whiff of these biodegradable towelettes infused with natural coconut water and you're instantly transported to the beach. With papaya, a natural exfoliant, in combination with aloe vera and soothing calendula, these wipes also gently cleanse skin and leave it feeling fresh and hydrated. I've made them a part of my daily routine, using them each night before bed to refresh and cleanse my skin - with beautiful results.

These wipes aren't the best at removing makeup and may cause a little tingling around the sensitive eye area but they're perfect for removing a little excess mascara or BB Cream from skin. I also love that they're sodium lauryl sulfate free, petroleum-free, and paraben-free (a good choice for this nursing, overly-cautious mama!). The colorful Pucci-esque packaging is just icing on the cake.

The Look for Less: Victoria's Secret Chevron Maxi Skirt

Victoria's Secret's chevron stripe maxi skirt is $68. I haven't ordered clothing from them in a while because I wasn't impressed with the quality for the price. But I still love their undies.

The look for less, shockingly, comes to us from Urban Outfitters ($19.99):

Another look for less can be found at Target from the Mossimo line, saw this skirt in person and loved it. Just $19.99:

My FEED USA Collection x Target Favorites

This summer, Target is joining forces with FEED USA to help provide meals to families in need while also delivering an amazing collection of apparel, home goods and accessories for shoppers. The limited-time-only line of 50+ products each have specific meal amounts associated with them - for example, if you buy a scarf, you're donating 14 meals to the charity. This is a cause I've supported in the past and I'm excited to see my favorite big-box retailer teaming up with a charity that helps people right here in our own backyards.

The Target x FEED USA collection launches June 30th in stores and online, so I wanted to share a few of the items I'll be honing in on the day it hits shelves. What's on your Target x FEED USA wishlist?

Target x FEED USA Favorites

  • Baby bibs and onesies: Need I say more? These adorable must-haves are feel-good items on so many levels, delivering adorableness to your kids and much-needed meals to other little tummies. Love, love, love.

  • Totes: Summer is all about carefree totes, whether you're heading to the farmer's market or the beach. It'll be hard for me to pick just one between the vivid shade of orange, nautical stripes or earthy burlap.

  • Stoneware: In all-American red, white and navy polka-dots or gingham, these stoneware dishes are classic pieces that will fit in anyone's kitchen, modern or rustic. Perfect for summer entertaining.

  • Fashion: My inner girl-next-door is all about the sleeveless denim top, cozy fleece and understated jewelry in the FEED USA collection.

DIY Tissue Paper Tassel Garland

DIY Tissue Paper Tassel Garland Tutorial

This past winter, I made my first tissue paper tassel garland for my sister's bridal shower. The process was relatively easy (albeit time consuming) and the results were oh-so charming! Now that I'm decorating my nursery, I've decided to make another garland to hang near (not above) the baby's crib for some colorful visual stimulation. I think these inexpensive decor accents work well in so many settings, whether it's for a party, your office or a children's space.
