Hi everyone and Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing my favorite local coffee spot in Madisonville, LA, Abita Roasting Co. My boyfriend and I stop there for coffee and breakfast almost every weekend. I love going there on beautiful sunny days so we can enjoy our coffee outside by the river. My favorite part of the coffee house is the chandelier that hangs in the back courtyard or the distressed green shutters against the white wood. Oh, and their own signature coffee blend of course! Make sure to check out the video for more details of the inside here–> Abita Roasting Co
Abita Roasting Co serves full breakfast on the weekends. I always order the plain waffle or the bacon, swiss and tomato croissant with a side of grits–it’s my favorite. Every now and then I’ll get a mini cinnamon roll or a specialty cupcake with my coffee. I hope you try this place out! They even serve lunch too. I always get the turkey and swiss panini for lunch. Anyway, check it out and I’d love to hear what you think!
Hi everyone, I recently tried Shiseido’s new Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate and I decided to give you my review on the product by sharing my #LifeUnfiltered story. Shiseido’s Ultimuneworks to resist external and internal aggressors such a UV rays, pollution and stress. It also contains the power to strengthen your skin’s defensive function against aging. As a result of using Shiseido Ultimune after just one week, my skin feels silky smooth and appears to glow. I know that radiant, healthy and younger skin is something that all women strive for, but sometimes our daily life makes it difficult for us to maintain our glow such as stress, lack of sleep, kids, work and just plain time. When I say glow, I’m not just referring to my outer beauty, I’m also referring to my strength and inner beauty too.
The way you look, dress and treat your skin and body can totally affect the way you feel about yourself and act towards others such as your kids, co-workers and even the barista at Starbucks. A healthy mind and body is key to maintain glow in both your inner and outer beauty. I know this from personal experience. Some days I just want to sleep in even though I have things to do, skip my morning beauty routine, eat fast food and wear yoga pants without any intention of actually attending a class. I understand that we all have days like these, but a while back I started letting these days happen way too often and those days quickly caught up with my weight, skin and attitude.
I found myself feeling low and pathetic until one day I finally grew tired of squeezing into my jeans that no longer fit and piling on the concealer under my eyes from stress and lack of sleep. I also missed when people used to compliment me on my bright glowing skin when I kept up with my daily beauty routine. I decided to pull myself together so I found a dedicated workout-partner, created a new daily beauty routine to improve my skin and limited my trips to Chick-fil-A!
Ever since I started my new way of life, I feel happier and more beautiful than ever. However, I’m always still on the hunt for new products and ways to continue improving my skin to preserve my outer and inner beauty. I found that Shiseido Ultimune really enhanced my skin and overall glow! I highly recommend the product and would love to hear what you think! I would also love to hear your #lifeunfiltered stories so please feel free to share in a comment or personal email to me at Jenn.firstname.lastname@example.org

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying this gorgeous weekend. We couldn’t ask for better weather here in southern Louisiana. I’ve already spent most of my day outside shopping and enjoying lunch with my boyfriend. Kaela and I actually shot this tulle skirt this past Thursday, but the sun shined just as beautifully today.
Anyway, in case you’re wondering where to find this exact skirt on Bliss Tulle’s site, you can’t because I had it custom made. Not to worry though because you can easily have one custom made for yourself too! Just email Christine at email@example.com with your measurements and style request and she’ll have your dream tulle skirt to you in no time. If you’re wondering why I requested to have this skirt specially made for me, you can ask Pinterest that question! After staring at my Pinterest boards for hours one day, I decided that I needed a majestic tulle ball gown to prance around in my magical field for no reason. Haha! You all know how Pinterest gets the best of us sometimes and drives us to buy, make, bake and order all kinds of things! At least that’s what it does to me! This might sound lame, but this tulle skirt made me feel like a little girl again dressed up like a pretty pretty princess! It was truly a magical day! Haha! I’m not kidding! You can even ask Kalea! I hope these pictures of me frolicking around an open field wearing a tulle ball gown inspires you to have a little fun and maybe even get your own custom made tulle skirt to enjoy!
Make sure to follow along with my Bliss Tulle Valentine’s Day Instagram takeover at @Blisstulle!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo, Jenn
P.S. I found this rose gold cropped topat Forever 21 over the Christmas holidays and even though I didn’t need it for anything at the time I bought it anyway because it was only $15! Anytime you see a cute cropped top under $20, you buy it! Trust me, you’ll end up needing it for something!
