September Loves GIVEAWAY

Hello friends!  I hope you enjoyed the long weekend!  Mine was really good, ending with a birthday celebration for my mom at my house.  It’s been too long since my family has been over and it was the BEST being with them, just hanging out.   The kids played, my little brothers grilled hot dogs and hamburgers and we drank mimosas!

Those simple, easy get togethers where everyone is relaxed and comfortable are my favorite. I’m really close with my brothers (I’m the oldest and they are 6 and 12 years younger than me!) It’s awesome to get all of our kids together – the cousins love each other so much!

And today is the first day of SCHOOL!  I can’t believe it’s finally here.  It’s wild to look back and realize that the kids have been home for six months.  Such a surreal time.  I’m so thankful for our school and all of the teachers and faculty who have worked so hard to make this happen.

I was up late cleaning and getting all the lunches packed (Jordan is using this bento style box and James is using this reuasable sandwich container), water bottles filled, everything labeled, lanyards on the masks.  And making sure I had the correct login info for the app I need to use for the daily health screening.  So much to prepare for, but I’m ready!

Back to School for kids


It’s also Week 2 of our FREE 30-Day Fitness Challenge You can sign up here, to get exclusive access to all the workouts, meal plans and fitness trackers.


And, I can’t help but mention that y’all almost broke my DMs when I shared this pic below of me and Brian, the guy I’ve been happily dating.  Your enthusiasm made me SMILE all weekend and I sure appreciate all of your joyous support.

I’ve been separated for two years and divorced for a year, so it feels really good to enjoy some adult company!  He really is the sweetest and we’re taking things slow, having fun together.   Now that my kids know that I’m dating, I was excited to share it with you too!  Here’s the pic I shared on Stories in case you missed it!

Joy Bead Bracelets

I love stacking bracelets and these gold bauble bracelets are perfect because they are lightweight, stretchy and SO stinkin’ cute!  I have the personalized name bracelets with my kids’ names on them, the white and gold beads, cross, and the newest member of my collection is the birthstone bracelet.  I got my birthstone and my two kids, and adore the color combo.

I’ve loved getting to support Hillary’s small business and she has been so kind, a wife and mom to three girls.  I ordered a kids’ bracelet for my 4 year-old daughter and she loved it!  But, to my surprise, her 10 year-old brother was a little bit jealous.  When Hillary saw that, she made a ‘boy’ bracelet for James!  You should have seen his reaction!  He said it was, “Dope!!”  High praise for a 5th grader!

Every Joy Bead Bracelet is custom, made to order.  They’re made with professional quality stretch cord and either 14K gold-filled beads or 14K rose gold-filled beads.  The prices are certainly reasonable, but you can save 10% with my code: Megan10

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - activewear

Sweaty Betty Sweatshirt

 I’ve been living in this sweatshirt!  I know y’all were disappointed when it sold out during the Nordstrom Sale, but it’s back! It’s deliciously soft and relaxed with a hi-low style.  It’s perfect for lounging around or running around in.

Sweatshirt Fit : Oversized fit, I’m wearing XS

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - activewear

7/8 Leggings • Sweatshirt • No Show Socks


This pullover is perfect for when the weather turns chilly!  It comes in tons of colors with a quality quilted asymmetrical snap and kangaroo pocket. Regularly $68, on sale for $40. 

Fits TTS, if you’re in between sizes, go up one (I’m wearing XS)

Velvet Pumpkins

Y’all said on Stories that you wanted some Fall decor in this giveaway and I thought these velvet pumpkins would be perfect!  They come in a set of three, one in each color of Gray, Ivory, and Taupe. The pumpkins measure  6.25″ wide x 3.25″ tall, PLUS the 4″ tall stem.  And the stem is hand painted resin, realistic, and very durable. The fabric is soft stretch velvet.  They make such a cute statement and will even look elegant on your Thanksgiving table!

Print Masks

I’ve been living in my pink Target kids masks, but finally upgraded to these darling print masks, they are not only cushiony and comfortable, but adjustable at the ears so they fit perfectly without any slipping or pulling.  They are 3 for $18, and they sell them at cost.

Nike React Infinity Run Flyknit Running Shoe

I highly recommend this running shoe.  After being an ASICS girl for so many years when running, I switched to Nike about four years ago and never looked back.  I’ve worn several versions of the Flyknit over the last few years and they are so good for running.

When I run at home, I’m jogging on the street or sidewalk, and that can be really hard on your feet, ankles, knees, back, etc.  But, when I started running in this style, I felt so much more cushioned.  But, even with the cushion, you still feel stable in this sneaker.

Colleen Rothschild Discovery Collection

Colleen Rothschild Discovery Kit

Last but not least, the biggest GIVEWAWAY request was Colleen Rothschild skincare products!  I know why- they are awesome and have truly transformed my skin.  I think my skin actually looks better at 45 than it did in my 30’s. But, it wasn’t until I turned 40 that I started taking my skincare seriously and using Colleen Rothschild products almost exclusively.

The Discovery Kit will give you a chance to her best selling products so you can see for yourself how you like them.  It includes the stylish and durable travel bag.

I hope the Labor Day 20% off sale is extended!

Have a fantastic day!
