New Pixi Beauty Picks

I have been using these picks from Pixi Beauty all summer long. I love the sheer splashes of color and nourishing qualities. So without further ado, here are my current picks from Pixi Beauty!

MultiBalm is a 2-in-1 cheek and lip color stick. This multi use, crème-powder formula awakens by adding a touch of color to the face. I tried the shade Baby Petal, which I found perfect to add a touch of glow to summer skin!

Nourishing Lip Polish is a multitasking lip exfoliator that treats, renews, and perfects lips for a super-smooth finish. My lips tend to burn in the sun. This works great to treat that dead skin left behind.

Quick Fix Powder is a luxe no-color finishing powder that gives a soft-focus finish. The puff applicator makes it perfect to throw in your bag for shiny touch ups. It is like using a photo filter!

Peel & Polish is a radiance revealing enzyme peel that resurfaces for smoother and softer skin. Think of it as a salon peel treatment that you can easily apply in your own home. It gives you that healthy looking glow anytime.

Makeup Fixing Mist is an all-over setting spray for longer-wearing makeup. I have been loving mists lately and this is no exception. It comes out in a fine mist that keeps makeup from moving, melting, or settling into fine lines and pores.

Sheer Cheek Gel is a blush that creates a natural looking and long lasting cheek flush. It will brighten and beautify your complexion in an instant. The shades from left to right are: rosy, natural, flush.

Finally, GelTint & SilkGloss is perfect for that everyday quick pick-me-up look. If you have ever wanted to create that simple stained lip with gloss on top look, this is how you do it.

5 Reasons to Make the Switch to Republic Wireless

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Republic Wireless.

Is it just me or does it physically hurt to pay a gigantic cell phone bill each month? I mean it is just ridiculous! That is it was. We made the switch to Republic Wireless and have been saving big ever since. Republic Wireless is the affordable smartphone service provider that’s revolutionizing the way cellular service is distributed for Android users.

Republic Wireless keeps costs low by seamlessly connecting your device to available free wifi ... and then back to 4G LTE. Smart huh? The connection is updated even in the midst of a phone call or streaming. We have been using a Moto G5 Plus for several months now. We use it to stream movies, text, talk, take photos, and more! Not once have we ever had an issue with dropped service. It is pretty amazing. So why should you make the switch to Republic Wireless?

#1 WiFi First
Republic Wireless pioneered the idea of “WiFi first” resulting in tens of millions in annual savings for its customers. Republic’s smartphones deliver high quality and savings by using the less expensive WiFi network when possible and seamlessly connecting to nationwide 4G LTE cellular network whenever necessary.

#2 It's Affordable
Starting at $15, all Republic plans include unlimited talk and text whether on WiFi or cellular. Data plans start at just $20/month. You can even change your plan when your needs change.

#3 No Contracts. No Hidden Fees.
You won't see any overage charges or additional fees. How amazing is that? No surprises!

#4 Smartphone Features
Don't miss out on the things you love about a smartphone. Use your social media outlets as usual from your Republic Wireless phone. One of the places we love to frequent in the summer is our local pool. I snapped this photo with my Moto G5 Plus then shared it on Instagram. So go ahead, respond to Facebook comments or follow your favorite celebrities on Twitter. There will be no difference when you use Republic Wireless.

#5 Always Connected
Get 4G LTE service across the country backed by two nationwide carriers. We have never experienced a dropped call or service interruption. We even visited family in a rural area. We normally would not get service in their area. That was before Republic Wireless. We stayed connected the whole summer long no matter where we were.

My husband has basically claimed this as his phone. He loves the quality of the phone and the reliability of the service. I love the affordable plans with no hidden fees. How important is it to you to have affordable, reliable phone service? If you don't use Republic Wireless, I strongly suggest you take a closer look.

Picture Keeper Connect Review + Giveaway

You know all of those photos that you took during summer vacation? You know, the ones on your phone? How would you feel if you lost them forever? If you’re like me, you take lots and lots of photos while you’re traveling. Keeping them on your phone not only puts you at risk for losing them, you can also run out of space on your device. The solution is Picture Keeper Connect

Small, convenient, and hassle-free, the Picture Keeper Connect offers a simple backup solution for the irreplaceable pictures, videos, and contacts stored on your iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone and tablet, and Mac and PC computer. Whether you're switching to a new phone, running out of storage on your smartphone, or wanting to safeguard important photos, Picture Keeper Connect offers a simple backup solution for all devices.

Inside the box, I found the instruction booklet, the USB device, and an Android adapter (if you need it). Simply plug Picture Keeper Connect into your device’s charging port, open the app, sign in, click start back-up and you’re done!

Apparently, I had 328 photos on my phone that were backed up in a minute or two. Everything was intuitive and simple. Picture Keeper Connect also works to restore photos, videos, and contacts to your new device or even a friend’s device. You can just hand them the USB so they can easily get the photos from you. How cool is that?!

Boom. Backed up and done. When I removed the USB from my phone and inserted it into my PC, I was able to easily bring up all of the photos that were on my phone. 

This is my favorite feature. Now I can move the photos from my devices to my PC and vice versa with ease. I also love the no repetitions feature. The Picture Keeper Connect will actually remember where you left off on your back ups the next time you use it. No more duplicating files and photos you’ve already backed up and taking up enormous amounts of memory you could use for new files.

Another cool feature is contact backup. The Picture Keeper Connect app doesn’t just back up photos and videos. You can also use it to backup your contacts. Once backed up, contacts can easily be transferred to a new phone or restored on your original device.

So, in review, here is how I will be using my Picture Keeper Connect.
  • To transfer files from old devices to new ones.
  • To move files between wireless devices and computers.
  • To backup all photos, videos, and contacts.
  • To save new files with every new backup - no duplicated files.
  • To easily share files from my devices with a friend.
