Popped into Abercrombie the other day to check out all their goodies! It had seriously been a decade, at least, since I last stepped foot into the store. I have to admit I felt pretty nostalgic as I inhaled the scent of perfume walking in, lol. Continue reading “Abercrombie Try-On”
Ok, I want to start this post by saying that I pride myself for being honest and upfront with y’all.
I went to Old Navy last week to film a try-on and I was quickly reminded of why I don’t shop at Old Navy for myself. Continue reading “Old Navy Try-On”
Oh my word y’all!! I asked recently what you want to see more on the blog and on my Instagram and the majority have said try-ons.

Continue reading “Mini Nordstrom Try-On”
I’ve had more requests lately to add more try-ons to the blog so I made my way to Madewell and did just that. Continue reading “Madewell Try-On”

Back story: I’ve known since my late teens, and if I’m being honest probably even my mid teens, that I would eventually get a boob job. My chest has always been on the smaller side, obviously, and it has been an insecurity of mine since puberty. Continue reading “Boob Job (part 1)”
I can not believe that it’s that time of the year AGAIN! Sure it’s 100+ degrees outside but I’m suddenly craving a PSL and cozy knits.
If you’re unsure what I’m talking about, I’m referring to the Nordstrom anniversary sale where they put out all brand new, never before seen, items and mark them WAY down. Items range from clothing to transition into Fall, beauty, hair, accessories and shoes. Continue reading “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale”
I can’t believe it’s already time for a new trunk club try-on! I want to preface this with an apology for my wild hair but as you know I typically style my hair at night and today was a wash day for me. Ok, now that the disclaimers out there lets get into the nitty gritty, aka, the fun stuff. Continue reading “July Trunk Club Try-On”
Looking for a last minute gift for the guy in your life this Father’s Day? Schedule a trunk from Trunk Club with a variety of clothes and accessories for your special someone to pick from.

Some dressed up more than others but all adorable and nursing friendly. Continue reading “Nursing Friendly Spring Dresses”
A few months ago I realized that my current concealer was a bit too dark to help cover those pesky dark circles, hello motherhood and lack of sleeping, so as I was in Target I quickly grabbed one to use while I was waiting for my “go to” to ship out. To my surprise I LOVED the concealer I had brought home and thought it would be fun to do a drugstore makeup review. Now I did a little research but mainly picked products that stuck out to me, whether it was the packaging or the resemblance to the “higher end” products I already owned and loved. Continue reading “Daily makeup routine using just drugstore products”

Alright y’all, this is it. I’ve officially cancelled my monthly subscriptions so these are my last ones for at least a little while. Why cancel, you might ask? Well, I am officially a sample size hoarder and even with giving lots away, using, or tossing I still have drawers overflowing. I’m also at the point that with over a year and a half with each box I’m getting way too many duplicates. Never say never, but for right now I need a pause from it. Continue reading “January PLAY! vs Birchbox”
Ya’ll this week has been a doozy! I’m exhausted and ready for the weekend. I am, however, so excited for this weeks wants. I decided to focus on home décor and inexpensive accents to add in.

So I’m officially in my second month of taking TULA probiotics. I haven’t seen a crazy difference in my skin complexion YET but I’ve noticed a huge difference in my digestion and energy levels! I have no doubts that my skin will make a change shortly. One of my favorite blogs actually just did a review of them and I couldn’t agree more. Click here to read Katey’s experience. She was actually smart enough and took notes daily and it’s amazing to see her body’s reaction to missing a dose or two.
Ok y’all. Right off the bat I’m gonna be honest and admit that I have a love hate relationship with this service. The concept is amazing! I mean having access to a personal stylist at any point you want/need is awesome. Continue reading “Trunk Club “

I feel as a mom of three I was meant for this post. I mean who has time to wash their hair everyday anyways?! I’ve tried quite a few different brands but I’ve narrowed it down to these seven.
Typically my hair can make it 2 days after washing before it starts to get a little sketch. The plan is to try a new dry shampoo on my 3 day hair and see how it feels and how long I can make it last. I’ll write down my thoughts on each one; the good, bad and the ugly. Continue reading “The battle of the dry shampoos”
As ya’ll know, I love me a subscription box. My two favorites, and the ones that I’ve had the longest, are the Sephora PLAY! and BIRCHBOX. Who doesn’t love a good mail day and getting the opportunity to try new beauty products?! These two subscriptions are always so fun and usually there’s a clear “winner” each month. Continue reading “October PLAY! vs BIRCH boxes “
OK, so how awkward is it to talk about deodorants but with October being breast cancer awareness month I thought it was only fitting to share my reasons for switching things up in that department. Continue reading “Making the switch to a natural deodorant”
A new week means a new meal plan. We made the trek again this week to our favorite grocery store for a few staples and some missing ingredients.
