If you follow me on stories you will have seen that I got a laser treatment done recently at Monarch Skin Rejuvenation! My girl Jessica performed what is called a PhotoPro Laser treatment on my face and neck. This is a full face treatment that includes a light pass with BBL laser and a light Profractional laser treatment. To read all about BBL lasers head here to read my post on them! BBL helps focus on getting rid of those brown and red spots we can get from the sun or left over acne scars. This is something I personally struggle with (dang tanning beds) so this treatment does wonders for my skin! The BBL paired with the Profractional laser did wonders for my overall skin health. The Profractional laser helps with collagen stimulation, also helps target those acne scars, smooths out fine lines and wrinkles and helps with overall skin texture. Here is some more info on the Profractional laser from Monarch’s website “The profractional laser treatment uses a fractional laser to create thousands of deep, tiny columns, or microscopic wounds in your skin without affecting the surrounding tissue. This ablative process promotes the skin’s natural healing response by replacing the damaged cells with new, healthier tissue. By triggering the body’s natural healing process, patients will benefit from the accelerated production of new, healthy skin cells as well as the production of new collagen.”
If you read my BBL post you know that BBL doesn’t have any downtime. It will make your dark spots darker and they do eventually flake off but other than that you can wear make up right away. The Profractional laser does have a small amount of down time associated. Right after the treatment my skin we very red and felt like I had a sunburn. The heat in my skin subsided after a couple of hours but I was still really visibly red. Waking up the next day the redness was almost all the way gone but I did still have some texture to my skin. I wore mineral make up starting on day 2 and around day 3 I started having some dead skin come off. Day 4 I would say my skin was 95% back to normal besides still having a couple of dry areas! If you struggle with uneven skin tone, dark spots, scaring or texture on your skin this treatment would be awesome! Monarch also does free consultations so you can go in before your treatment to make sure this is the best treatment option for your skin type.
This treatment is actually Monarch’s March special and is $375 for the full face and if you wanted to add on the neck it would be an additional $250.
You can call Monarch at 913-317-9386 to schedule your consultation! And I see Jessica :). I hope this post was helpful!

I am so excited to share some of my favorites from TIVOL Fine Jewelry with you today! TIVOL is a 109 year-old family-owned business right here in KC. They have a location at the Country Club Plaza as well as in Hawthorne Plaza. You can find anything from engagement rings to everyday jewelry. I am featuring some of my favorites with you today. The pieces I gravitate towards are those that can be worn every day at the office and transitioned into a nighttime look. These are higher end pieces, but they will last you a lifetime. If you go into one of the TIVOL locations the customer service is next level! You can tell them exactly what you are looking for and they will bring you options in all different price ranges. I always love supporting local businesses when I can, and the service is just unbeatable. The brand I gravitated towards most was David Yurman. TIVOL has an awesome David Yurman selection. You can see the pieces I loved the most below. I found 3 pieces that looked great all paired together, and I styled them in two different ways! One look is great for work and one is perfect for a night out. These pieces are so versatile which is one reason I loved them.
This ring is so my style. Simple with a little flair with the gold cross detail.
Both of the David Yurman pieces are available in store. If you are local to the KC area I highly recommend checking out the TIVOL stores for your fine jewelry needs.. If you are not local you can check out all of their online options here .

Today I am sharing my favorite Revision Skincare products. Revision Skincare is a Medical Grade skincare line that is results based with high concentrations of ingredients that will actually improve and change your skin. I try tons of Skincare lines and products and you know I would never steer you in the wrong direction! I take my skincare seriously and want to make sure you are getting the best results for your money. One thing I wanted to address, when buying skincare online make sure you are purchasing from authorized retailers. Most Skincare websites will have a section that looks like this stating places that are NOT authorized to sell their products and are probably fake.
I will link directly to the products from an authorized retailer :) You can also head to their website and search for a medical professional near you. Since revision is a Medical Grade line it is sold at Dermatology offices and Med Spa locations.
My Favorite Revision Products
Papaya Enzyme Cleanser - I have used this product for 6 months now. First of all this stuff smells AMAZING. It is a liquid consistency and foams up nicely. My skin truly feels clean and bright after using this. The Papaya Fruit Extract contains Papain, an enzyme that gently exfoliates for naturally vibrant skin. It is not harsh at all but leaves your skin clear and even. I love using this in the morning. Main things this cleanser does:
Gently polishes away dead surface cells
Nourishes skin with Papaya Extract, rich in vitamins and minerals
Cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural moisture content
Hydrating Serum - This is a Hyularonic acid serum that is oil free and lightweight. I will use this in the morning or at night underneath my moisturizer if I feel that I need some extra hydration. This also helps with plumping up the skin which in turn helps with fine lines and wrinkles.
Intellishade Original- This is one of my favorite SPFs to use on no make-up days. I use the Original formula in the winter when my skin is dry and I like the matte version for the summer time. If you are more oily I would use the matte version! The glow this stuff gives your skin is awesome and it helps to even out your skin tone while protecting you from the sun.
The Black Mask- Currently my all time favorite mask. This mask uses Silt derived from European freshwater lakes to purify and soothe your skin. This mask is good for all skin types and helps to reduce the appearance of pores as it clears them out. Your skin truly feels so smooth after using it. If you try one thing I recommend here, try this! You can use this up to two times weekly.
Revox 7 - This is a peptide rich serum for expression lines. If you have those annoying lines on your forehead, around your eyes, by your mouth etc and you do not want to or cannot get Botox this is a great alternative! I use the smallest amount of this and ONLY put it on my areas that have the fine lines. This helps to plump them up and make them less visible. I use this morning and night.
Nectifirm Advanced - Okay I saved the most trans-formative product for last. This is a product for your neck and chest and it helps to diminish the fine lines and wrinkles as well as firm the skin in these areas. I have been using this product for a little over 3 weeks now and I see huge changes personally. I use this morning and night. See my before and after picture after only 3 weeks below.
I hope this was helpful! These are products I truly love and use and see true results from. If you try any of these out please let me know what you think!
I am finally rounding up my Amazon favorites for you all. Just click on each photo to check out the items. Id love to hear your Amazon picks as well so please send them to me on Instagram!
Sharing my current favorite skincare masks with you today! I don’t love to keep a ton on hand at one time as they expire quickly before I can get through them. I try to finish one before I get a new one. I try to mask a couple of times a week and pick which mask I’m going to use that night based on the current state of my skin. I’ve listed below what each mask does and why I like them! Just click each photo to shop the mask if you are interested.
I have rounded up my favorites from some of the after Christmas sales! I will continue to add to this post so be sure to check back later tonight too. If you got money or gift cards for Christmas and are wanting to spice up your wardrobe for the new year now is the time! I love taking this time to go through my closet to get rid of things I don’t love anymore and adding in new things that I love to start off the new year feeling confident. Below are my picks. Just click on each item to shop.
Sharing some of my go to products for Winter skin! I get very dry skin in the winter so I have to switch up my products I’m using to fight the flaky and dull looking skin. These make up and skincare products help to keep my skin glowing and hydrated.
Ill start off with make up. I’ve added all of my favorite products for winter. The hourglass powders and bronzers are amazing for dry skin. They are the secret to glowing skin for me. The Too Faced born this way foundation and translucent powder are my go to for my dry skin as well. See all my picks below!
Listing my skincare/ lip care products below. My lips get super dry in the winter time so exfoliating them and putting this sleeping mask or the Image lip complex on are game changers. For me its also important to keep my skin exfoliated. I use the cleanser I’ve listed below to keep my skin flake free and smooth. I’ve also included under eye patches I love, thermal spring water to spray on your face to keep the moisture in, the best hyaluronic acid and more! You can click on any photo to shop the item.
I hope this was helpful!

This post is all things BBL! I recently got my second BBL Treatment at Monarch Plastic Surgery here in KC. I loved my results so I wanted to share a little more information on this treatment.
What is BBL and what does it treat?
BBL stands for Broad Band Light and is a laser treatment you can get for you face, chest, neck and hands. BBL treats things like age spots, sun damage, sun induced freckles, and birth marks to name a few. I got it to help reverse some sun damage and acne scaring I have developed over the years to make my skin tone more even.
How does it work?
This is a little over my head so I’m going to quote the Monarch website here:
“The unique BBL technology sends a broad spectrum of therapeutic light into the skin. During treatment, the target tissue responds to the heat energy, which is absorbed without damaging the surrounding tissue.
Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center uses BBL therapy from Forever Young BBL, the only device that has been shown to change the expression of genes associated with visible signs of aging. With regular Forever Young BBL treatments, patients' skin looks clearer, smoother, and much younger.”
You can check out the full page on BBL on Monarchs Website here.
What to expect
The treatment itself doesn’t take long at all. I would say mine took about 20 minutes each time. I will warn you… it does hurt a little. It feels like a rubber band lightly snapping on your face. Certain areas hurt worse than others but overall its a very short lived pain and nothing terrible but did make my eyes water a couple of times and I’m pretty sure you can ask for numbing cream if you are nervous about it. Right after my skin felt fine but was red both times. It calmed down after about an hour. Over the next 7-10 days your dark spots you were treating will get darker and come to the surface of your skin. This process is called peppering. These spots will eventually form a scab like texture and they will flake off and then your dark spots are gone or either dramatically faded! This process is honestly really cool. You can put make up on over them and no one really noticed the darker spots and flaking except for me. There is no downtime with this treatment which is amazing. I have a full time job so I don’t have time for treatments that have a long recovery process. Depending on how severe your dark spots or issues you are wanting to get treated are will depend on how many sessions you need to see the results you are wanting. I saw amazing results after one treatment! But I have a few areas I wanted treated an extra time. This is something you could get done once a year to keep your skin clear, younger looking and smooth.
How much does it cost?
Monarch is having a November special that includes a chemical peel and a BBL Treatment for $315. A full face BBL normally on its own is $350 for a treatment at Monarch.
*To book with Monarch you can call 913-317-9386*
I hope that was helpful! Head to my Instagram to see videos and photos of my skin post treatment! I have a BBL highlight saved to my profile.
I am pajama obsessed and if you have followed me for any amount of time you have probably figured that out. During this season I am even more obsessed with pajamas if that is even possible :). I wanted to pull together some affordable pajama options you could grab for yourself or for a loved one as a gift! I’ve included slippers and robes as well. If you want to shop any of these items just simply click the photo! Happy Holidays!
Hi Friends and welcome back!
I recently got a Keratin hair treatment at the Glossary Salon. I wanted to share this treatment and experience with you because I feel like this could help a lot of people. Keratin treatments help to smooth frizz and leave your hair sleek and beautiful. I have very curly, frizzy hair naturally so my hair dresser Leah suggested this treatment to help me better manage and control my frizz. I will take you through step by step so you know what to expect when getting a Keratin treatment at the Glossary.
What to expect
step 1- clarify the hair. They will wash your hair and make sure its super clean.
step 2- apply the product in small sections. They used a small brush and comb and combed the product through my wet hair.
step 3- blow dry the product into your hair
step 4 - flat iron the product into hair in small sections
step 5 - rewash and blow out
Then you are done! And you walk out with super smooth sleek beautiful hair. Glossary Salons Keratin treatment is different because you do not have to wait 48 hours to get your hair wet again like most Keratin treatments. You leave with the finished product and you have easy frizz free, easy to maintain hair. Your hair will stay smooth and sleek from this treatment for 4-6 months after the application. I will continue to get this treatment at least twice a year. It is so much easier to blow dry and style my hair.
allow 2-3 hours for this treatment. The time will vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair.
$275 at the Glossary Salon
If you want to try out a Keratin Treatment at the Glossary you can mention my name and you will get a free shampoo and conditioner. What a great time to treat yourself to smooth, frizz free hair for the Holidays :). I hope this was helpful!
*Book your appointment by calling the Glossary at 913.725.8520*

This post is for all my KC brides and future KC brides! This was so fun to write and share with you all. I am sharing all about Belle Vogue Bridal today. The options they have in the store, what the store looks like, the dress options they have, events coming up.. everything! Belle Vogue is actually where I got my wedding dress at almost 5 years ago so this place has a special place in my heart :). They have designers such as Stella York, Essense of Australia, and Martina Liana. Belle Vogue is actually the only place you can get these designers in the KC area. They also have bridesmaid dresses as well! Belle Vogue has a wide variety of dress options and styles and I’ll show you some of my favorites below :). Everyone at Belle Vogue is super helpful and kind and they make this process so smooth, and I can speak from experience! I went to around 7 dress shops total when I was searching for my dress and Belle Vogue was by far my favorite. It was the first place I went to and nothing else compared after that appointment. I love that you can see all of the dresses yourself and go through the racks to help decide what you want to try on. I was more of a hands on bride and didn’t love the places where they went back into a secret room and pulled things they thought you might like, Belle Vogue was more my style. I also got my belt and veil from here as well. They have so many great options and it was nice to be able to try everything on together before purchasing it. I also found that Belle Vogue had really great prices. Each of the three designers are at a different price point. My dress was actually under budget and I loved it so much. I’ll share some pictures of my dress which was a Stella York dress and a ton of photos from my recent visit to Belle Vogue. The dresses are beautiful and made me want to be a bride all over again. If you are engaged or hoping to be soon I would highly suggest scheduling an appointment at Belle Vogue Bridal!

If you have been following me for a little bit you know how much I love and support Native Deodorant. Two big reasons I love it: 1. It’s free of all the chemicals that we don’t necessarily want in our bodies and 2. It works! I have tried several other natural deodorants that still left me smelly, so when I found one that actually worked I have stuck to it and never looked back! My husband actually uses Native too and he loves it. His whole life he has had issues with normal deodorant irritating his sensitive skin. I recently switched him over to Native and he has had zero issues since switching and the health of his skin has significantly improved (this is 100% a real story I promise lol). If you are new to Native my number 1 recommendation would be to start off with the Coconut Vanilla scent! It is my favorite. If you have more sensitive skin I would try the coconut vanilla sensitive formula. Something I recently picked up is their seasonal fall sample pack! You get 3 sticks in the sample pack and end up actually saving about 17%. The fall sample pack includes Lilac & White Tea, Orange & Honeysuckle, and Lemon Zest & Pomegranate. They smell so good. There is also a Pumpkin Spice Latte scent I’ve had my eye on. These deodorants are free of aluminum, parabens, and sulfates and they also never test on animals!
If you want to test out this deodorant for yourself you can use the code “shelby10” at check out and get 10% off of your order! They also always offer free shipping.
This post was in collaboration with Native, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
