Little Bit of Life {No.3}

Hey y'all!

I'm so glad to be posting this "Little Bit of Life" post, even if it is no longer the weekend.
I decided to take this weekend off because of Easter festivities and I'm so thankful that I got to be surrounded by family and enjoying the real reason for the holiday-our risen Saviour!

Today I'm rounding up a few things I love, sharing some things I've bought, and letting y'all in on just what this post is called...a little bit of my life!

So I went shopping on Saturday and wandered in Kirkland's because I had a 15% off coupon (which I ended up spending on plate holders...which you'll see soon!)
But these two entry/accent tables stole my heart & I'm really wishing I had a space to put them because they are very much my style!

I also headed over to Bath & Body Works with my 20% off coupon & found out that they were having buy one/get one free of course, I had to buy one and get that free one!

Sugared Peony is a little bit sweet and a little bit floral-perfect for Spring
White Sand Beaches is a musky scent, but also light. It totally reminds me of a beach vacation!

The L'Oreal Advanced Haircare Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner has been a God-send from Influenster. I've never, ever felt as though a hair care product was made just for me until I found this one.
I took a survey to decide what kind of hair I have and they sent me products for very dry, curly hair which is exactly what I have.
I've been using them for about a week now and I have to say that they make my hair much more hydrated, manageable, and nourished!

My song favorite of the week is this find from Sirus XM The Highway
80's Mercedes by Maren Morris is such a fun driving song!
It's the perfect tune to take on Spring Break, or just to roll your windows down and play while running errands.

Check out two of my favorite online shopping places sales today-
Knitted Belle Boutique is one of my FAVORITE online boutiques and today they're having 25% off all shoes with the code SHOES25
This pair and this pair are two of my faves!

Shutterfly is having free shipping on all orders over $39 with the code SHIP30 and 101 free prints with the code 101Easter!

Y'all know I have been all about trying out new hair/beauty/skincare products lately and this week was no different. I reached back into my stash and pulled out these two beauties (seriously, check out that packaging!)
These are both by Kenra Platinum and are part of the Revive System.
The whole line comes with Shampoo, Conditioner, Revive Treatment, Revive Oil, and Revive Complex.

While I have tried and loved ALL parts of the system, the Oil & the Complex have been my faves.

The Complex is like a serum that you put in the ends of your hair and then style like you normally would. It is designed to smooth and fortify dry, brittle hair which I have lots of.

The Oil is used either used before shampooing, during conditioning, or as a finishing product.
I love this product because it helps prevent breakage, and since my hair is pretty long I would like to prevent breaking as much as possible.

If you haven't seen Heartbeat yet, it's an awesome new tv show.
Definitely geared toward those that love Grey's Anatomy or other medical dramas (that are also funny at times) I watched the first two episodes on Hulu and now I'm hooked!

Easter 2016

Isn't my little family so adorable!

My niece was wearing one of her Lilly dresses this Easter, so of course we had to take a picture together!

I'm wearing my OTBT Bushnell's in Pewter and my dress is the Ophelia Swing Dress by Lilly Pulitzer in the print Iris Blue Deep Dive Little Fish Engineered.
It's not available online anymore-but they do have two new prints in the Ophelia!

I seriously was not being photogenic this weekend, but I had to take a picture with my sweet man on our first married Easter.

I hope y'all had an excellent Easter weekend and found a few new things to love over here on the Southern Stylista!

Until next time. . .


A big thank you to Kenra via BrandBacker and L'Oreal via Influenster for providing me with product in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting brands who support The Southern Stylista.
