Today I wanted to share 3 businesses/companies that you may or may not be aware of. One is a gift box company, a jewelry line, and a make-up/beauty line. I love all 3 of them and I think you will too!
Bonnie + Bud is a Charlotte, NC based gift box company. Their gift boxes are just simply gorgeous and so thoughtful. They were sweet enough to send me two over Easter and we were all fawning over them. My mom promptly ordered one for a friend after seeing mine. If you check out their website they have several set baskets like Mother’s Day, Gratitude, Let’s Celebrate, Pampered Mama, For the Foodie, Gentleman, Kids, and Home Sweet Home. They also do custom and mini boxes. You can choose your price point as well and they will make the box accordingly. They sent me the Foodie box (pictured below) which was a perfect fit for me, I loved everything in it. It was filled with beautiful flowers, gourmet food items, a dish towel, and hand soap. There was a pepper relish that we all became obsessed with- see it below. If you live locally the boxes come with gorgeous bouquets of fresh flowers. I just love this concept, it is truly such a thoughtful gift and the girls do such a great job of hand selecting the items for each box.
This was the pepper jelly we all loved. Perfect for my cheese platters.
They also sent me the kid’s box which is beyond adorable. It was geared towards Easter and filled with sweet treats, a pretty succulent, face masks. the best bubble bath, a little twine and twig purse and necklace for Frances, and 2 games.
Frances and Finley clearly loved the masks!
I have been obsessed with Natalie’s jewelry line for years . She just recently moved to Charleston which makes me so happy because she is going to have a small storefront here! Her designs are unique and every time I wear a piece from her line I get compliments. Natalie has been gracious enough to offer you gals 20% off her entire site. Use code NATALIE 20 at checkout.
These “dream catcher earrings” are my favorite. I wear them all the time. They come in so many pretty colors and are super light weight.
Holst + Lee bracelets are also my favorite. That blue bracelet was the first piece I ever bought from her line and it got me hooked! They are sturdy and well made and look great alone or layered.
This necklace was another one of my first purchases from Holst and Lee a few years ago. I still wear it and love it- plus it is now on sale!
Dress is an oldie but a goodie, under $100 and such a fab Summer dress. I own it in 3 colors.
Wearing the Tropical Blue Earrings here:)
These long mesh necklaces are great alone or layered.
I also love her new hoops she just released and the price point is great under $50- great for a gift!

This is a fairly new to me beauty line that I quickly became hooked on. They were nice enough to send me products to try out several months ago and I have loved every single one I have tried. Their line is free of parabens and talc and never tested on animals. I love both their skincare and beauty lines. What I really love about their beauty line is the flawless coverage and it lasts all day! It is mineral based make-up and infused with vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract for nourishing antioxidant protection.

My 5 favorite products:
Glo Skin Tinted Moisturizer- This stuff is pretty awesome. It really helps to even out my skin tone, I have quite a bit of redness. The coverage is great but the product is lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy at all. I wear shade Light, this Summer when I am tanner I will probably switch to medium. I like it also has SPF30 built in.
Lipstick- I love the Glo Skin lipstick, it feels so good on your lips. It contains a blend of antioxidant Vitamins A, C, E and Green Tea Extract plus Titanium Dioxide which adds a natural UV shield to help keep lips healthy. I have tried a few shades but French Nude and Pillow Talk are my favorites.
Pressed Powder Foundation- I apply this after the tinted moisturizer just for extra coverage. It is a best seller for a reason. It is the best pressed powder I have tried. I wear shade golden medium.
Contour Kit– I am new to the contour and highlight game but wish I had done this earlier. It makes such a big difference on your face. It helps brighten and give the face dimension. I use the fair pallette.
Flat Top Kabuki Brush- Let me just say in the past I was not a big brush person, I literally owned 2 not so great brushes. But I am learning the importance of a good brush when applying your make-up. It really makes a world of difference. I use this to apply my pressed powder but it can also be used with liquid foundation as well. It really applies make-up flawlessly with the perfect coverage.
