This  99% caffeine free drink is the perfect coffee substitute!  I know what you’re thinking, “Why would anyone ever want to substitute coffee?”  They wouldn’t… unless they’re subbing for chocolate!  Crio Bru is made from 100% percent roasted cocoa beans (the same way your coffee is roasted) and available from five different origins and in several flavors.  Don’t expect hot chocolate!  You prepare it in a French Press and add cream and sugar the same way as coffee or tea. Side note:  It’s even better iced.

Green Bean Studio
Seriously can’t get over this absolutely adorable greeting card line! Based in Canada, the company was started by artist Aparna Varma. Here at Sunshine and Lace, we’re all about Boss Babes which makes us love Aparna’s journey from New Delhi to Botswana, and over to North America even more!  Her cute and clever cards and stationary will put a smile on anyone’s face. I’m especially particular to this avocado themed birthday card!

   Shea Moisture Daily Hydration Body Lotion
Because of Eczema, I have extremely dry skin, even in the summer.  I love this lotion because it doesn’t take much to work and it lasts all day!  Did I mention that it’s both fair trade and all natural?

I put this on and literally watched my lips get bigger in the mirror. I’m not going to pretend to know how it works but I’m excited about it nonetheless. My cupid’s bow has never looked better and I didn't even have to Kylie J. it.

  RevitaLash and RevitaBrow
I have the shortest eyelashes and thinnest brows I’ve ever seen  so I am always looking for ways to make them look fuller. I consider myself a bit of an expert when it comes to faking fuller lashes ( did you catch my Lash Hacks a few weeks ago? ) but nothing compares to this. My eyelashes and eyebrows are fuller without me piling a ton of makeup on them every morning and thanks to these products, I’ve cut a good fifteen minutes out of my daily routine.

  I was completely unaware but RevitaLash actually has a line for hair care too!  If you have fine or thinning hair this is definitely for you.  It’s a three-part system made to help regrow hair and prevents breakage along the way.  Now you can have the best looking lashes, brows, and hair.

Love Lilly 
I walked into the room of these gorgeous dresses and literally gasped. As soon as I left I called a friend to gush about how much I love this line.  I’m legitimately booking a trip to the Kentucky Derby next year just so I can wear one and be the best dressed there. Oh, and they’re made in America which basically means I can’t find a single thing wrong with the line. They're super cute, the material doesn’t wrinkle easily and I am honestly in need of every single one of them. Trust me, there are a lot to choose from! You'll have to find a store near you to purchase but you will not regret it.  Did I mention they have pockets?  THEY HAVE POCKETS! THIS IS NOT A DRILL! I love them all so much I can't decide which my favorite is.   Here’s a rare picture I took of myself wearing one in a bathroom because I’m absolutely obsessed.

Alexandra is planted in New York City which she considers to be the greatest city in the world (Paris is a close second). She had moved over thirty times by the age of twelve and has since lost count. This brought on an insane case of wanderlust for which she hopes to never find a cure.  Growing up, she was a huge Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen fan which led her to find a love for fashion as they grew to be designers.  She considers Audrey Hepburn to be the best dressed person of all time and often looks through pictures of her when she can't decide what to wear. She has an avid fear of getting wrinkles and avoids things that bring them like the plague.

She absolutely hates to be alone and finds any excuse to plan parties, cook for friends, or even herd children. You will often find her watching Annie (2014), crafting, convincing people to hold her hand, wearing dark lipstick, asking someone what their favorite thing about life is, or sitting with half a watermelon in her lap with a spoon. She loves to win (even in noncompetitive situations), Christmas, and to serve people in any way she can.
