Summer is right around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited! For me, that means a whole lot of sunshine and LOTS of time spent on the river with friends! Today, I’m teaming up with Babblebox to share 4 fashion and beauty products that make summer livin’ just a little bit sweeter!

1. Bloom Mineral Beauty 4-Piece Essentials Kit: This kit is such a great starter kit to help keep your skin looking fresh and youthful! I tend to wear less makeup during the summer, so I go through skincare products like crazy! The 4-piece kit includes a purifying mud mask, softening cleansing milk, shielding eye cream, and moisture shield. The mud mask is one of my favorites in the kit. It is composed of Dead Sea minerals to clean impurities beneath the skin and reduce wrinkles. Using masks a few times a week seriously has such a good effect on your skin! Bloom Mineral Beauty is offering S&S readers 25% off through June 30 with “skin25” – limit 2 uses per customer.

2. Nad’s Sensitive Hair Removal Cream: Nooobodyyyyy likes body hair during bikini season, so obviously this hair removal cream made the list! It’s a fast and painless hair removal processes that gives better results than shaving (and no razor burn, cause nasty bumps suck almost as bad as hairy legs). Continue Reading

Pleated Skirt + Popular Earrings 70% OFF…

  Pleated Midi Skirt - Spring Outfit - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

Hi beauties! I just wanted to stop in and share this spring outfit I meant to share several weeks ago (obviously…hence the old hair color! Lol). A few quick notes about this outfit – my earrings are on flash sale for only $29.99 (70% off). This adorable pleated skirt is still fully stocked and runs pretty big. I’m wearing a petite XXS for reference (usually a 0/2). Also, yes, I realize my spray tan is horrid at my ankles. Haha. I’m human, and my spray tan isn’t always perfect sooooo…  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

On a more serious note, I’ve been going through something really difficult in my personal life the past few weeks, which is why I’ve been so absent. I’m having the hardest time finding words to even write and be inspired, because my head is just everywhere currently with what I’m going through. With everything happening in the world right now, it feels selfish to ask for prayers, but I’m really needing them right now… I will hopefully be back to my normal self soon. Thank you so much for always following along and supporting me even in times I have to take a step back to take care of myself. xo

Lace Two-Piece Set Under $70…

Lace Two-Piece Set $67 - Sunshine & Stilettos Blog (Instagram: @katlynmaupin)

I’ve been on such a two-piece set kick lately, and this one is by far my favorite! From the delicate lace to the color, it’s seriously the cutest set ever! It comes in a vibrant red also, so I just picked it up in that color too! I’m wearing an XS for size reference. If you have broader shoulders or a bigger chest, I would definitely size up to accommodate the top – be sure to check out the detailed size chart on the product page!

Y’all probably know by now that I get SO much of my wardrobe from Chicwish. It’s one of my absolute favorite places to shop for great quality, affordable, and trendy pieces! I’ve recently gotten a ton of great pieces in the mail from Chicwish that will be on the blog or Instagram soon, but you can shop them early before they sell out below!
