Fun Summer Fashion!

Hello lovelies! I thought I would do a little bit different post about fashion! Something I normally don’t get too in to because being a stay at home mom I live in yoga pants and comfy tank tops. This way I am always comfortable and never to upset when I am spit up on or food gets thrown or just the general buckets of slobber. Anyways I do like to get dressed every once in a while and not just for youtube. So I have been searching for some super cute, stylish pieces that are affordable! I want to get the most bang for my buck. I also have been thinking about pieces I can wear on my honeymoon. Who doesn’t want to look amazing during a week in paradise?!

If you have never heard of Zaful, go check them out! I will leave them linked below.

Here are a few things that I have recently been checking out and purchasing! I love fun patterns and off the shoulder detail. While on an island, beach, or here in the super hot heat I want flowy clothing that is cool and comfortable. Even if I am going to a fancy event I have to be comfortable or else I can’t enjoy myself. These are some fun pieces that I can dress up or wear casual day or night!

How cute are these two dresses?! Click them to see so much more cute pieces! They also have tons of accessories and shoes and even makeup brushes!

I also recently took a chance and tried my luck ordering some bathing suits from walmart! I am obsessed with with swim wear, I probably buy swim almost as much as I buy makeup or skin care.

These are the two I ordered.. my attempt at a mom suit but still cute and fun! I am not sure about the one piece, I have lately wanted to attempt to wear one but unfortunately I have had to return every one I get because they are not long enough for my torso.. even if I order it big!

What are you guys currently loving? Where do you shop and find good deals? Let me know!!

Full Disclosure: I am an affiliate with Zaful. I asked to work with them after ordering and loving the amazing pieces and deals I was getting. I only do affiliate programs with companies I believe in and use myself. All opinions are 100% honest.

Monthly Wish List

Okay so I don’t have a huge list this month because if you watched my last Video (click!!) you would see the huge haul I had and all the goodies I purchased for myself! Anyways as you will see in a blog going up this weekend, I have also purchased some clothing which I will do a look book on or something similar! Okay so moving on! Here is my wish list with a little description of what they are.

Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.34.40 PMA part mousse (but way lighter), part salt spray (but less gritty)—for big, beachy texture with heat-styled polish for fine to medium, healthy hair. Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.36.25 PM

A natural exfoliating foot peel treatment, formulated with alpha hydroxy acids and fruit extracts, to reveal softer, smoother feet in as little as eight to 10 days. Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.32.18 PM

Formula 10.0.6 Be Berry Clear brings out your best with this skin-brightening peel mask. Raspberry and acai deliver powerful antioxidants to help minimize pores, calm flare-ups and smooth skin. Sit back, relax and renew…You deserve it!Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.30.26 PM

An antioxidant-infused water-gel that’s ultralight yet delivers a 179% moisture boost for instantly plumper, smoother skin. For all skin types.Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.31.45 PM

Transform your favorite moisturizer into a BB, CC or fuller-coverage foundation. One drop of Clinique BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops creates sheer cover. Two or three, a flawless finish. Since Clinique BIY takes on the finish of the moisturizer you blend it with, expect a more matte finish with a mattifying moisturizer. Or a more dewy, radiant finish when blended with a moisturizer that contains optics. All skin types.Screen Shot 2017-06-20 at 2.33.00 PM

Enjoy an at home spa treatment using this Eco Tools Dry Body Brush (with cruelty-free synthetic bristles) for beauty you can feel good about! Inspired by spa dry brushing treatments, used to exfoliate and detoxify, improving appearance and leaving skin soft, smooth and glowing.

What are yall wanting this month??

Future Baby Wish List

Okay so the title isn’t the most clear but I really couldn’t think of a better title! I have been collecting a list of some baby products that I will have to try out if I have another little one! So let’s dive into this list!

  1. Tranquilo Mat This mat is super cool. It has different vibrating settings that calm and soothe babies off to sleep. It is super cool and if you have ever dealt with a baby who is crying for no reason then you could see where this gadget would come in handy.
  2. Baltic Amber Teething Necklace For Babies– This teething necklace is supposed to help with all things that come with teething. Less drooling, pain, and anti flammatory properties. Sounds like a real win win!
  3. 4moms Baby Swing– This is a pricier item but from what I hear it is the best. I got baby K a chair but I wish I would have listened to my best friend and gotten this bad boy to begin with. It will definitely be on my wish list for next round.
  4. 3 Sprouts Play Mat Bag– This guy is really cool, especially if you travel alot. It seems like we are always on the move. This is a play mat that zips up so you can store toys inside. So easy just unzip, play and zip back up to hit the road or keep your house a little neater!
  5. The NEW One Z Nursing Pillow– This pillow is so much better than the boppy in my opinion if you plan on using it for breastfeeding. Now there is nothing with the boppy, I let my little guy lay on it and use it but for breastfeeding the one z pillow has a back support! I really do love it.
  6. SoundBub, Bluetooth Speaker and White Noise Machine | Portable and Rechargeable Baby Sleep Soother – Okay so it is a super long link but this guy is so cute and again since we travel so much having a traveling noise machine is a must. and this guy doubles as a speaker all with no wires needed!!

Alrighty guys I am always on the search on the latest products so if you can think of anything else I got to check out let me know in the comments!!!

Summer Beautycon Box 2017

I went away for a long weekend with the family this past weekend and we just got back yesterday evening. Traveling is so exhausting! But I came home to my beautycon box which is always exciting!!

I filmed my unboxing so check it out HERE if you are interested in seeing that. If not continue reading to find out what was inside. image1(3)

What I received:

  • Colourpop Cosmetics- Ultra Satin Lip in London Fog
  • Deco Miami- Lemon Blossom Cuticle Oil
  • Deco Miami- Beautycon Pink Glass Nail File
  • Dirty little Secret Cosmetics- Gold Plated Eyeshadow Crayon
  • Doucce- Lush Lip Gloss in Glistening Petals
  • Feel Beauty- Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sheet Masks
  • Freeman Beauty- Renewing Cucumber Peel-off Mask
  • Jonteblu- Electric Blue Eyeliner Pencil
  • MakeupDrop x Beautycon- The Original Silicone Makeup Applicator
  • Manna Kadar Beauty- Flutter Mascara in Jet Black

I am very excited to try out the lip products and the eye liner and the masks! I am honestly kinda on the fence about how I feel about the box this season. I love a lot of the products but as far as the nail products go I am just not excited at all about them. I rarely paint my nails, maybe once a month. I think maybe what is throwing me off about this box is how small the products are where as the past few boxes I received larger products which make you feel like you are getting more.

Of course I will update you on products I like and didn’t as I try them out this month!!

What do  you guys think or what products are you loving?

Stretch Mark Remover DIY Update

Hey Friends!! I know everyone is anticipating this update. For the past 21 days I have been testing out Stretch mark remover DIY’s. I have started with 2 and if they don’t work I will move on to another 2 to try until I find one that works for me and for y’all!! IMG_1287This is where I started. I know that I don’t have the worst stretch marks in the world but honestly they still bother me. I didn’t get a single stretch mark until a week before I delivered!! How annoying is that?!?!?! Any ways when I ran my hand over my legs I could feel the uneven-ness of my skin and seeing that whiteish and purple/red coloring. I hate it!! I know some say to embrace it but why not be confident about them while trying to remove them? haha So after 21 days I can see a difference!!

It is not perfect but my skin has become more smooth and less uneven. Still not perfect. and the coloring is much better. IMG_1409This is the thigh I have been using the cocoa butter mixture on. Check out my post on DIY stretch mark remover for the recipe. Yes you can see I still have some marks but trust me it is much better!!FullSizeRender(10)This last picture is of my left thigh where I have been using the vitamin E. Vitamin E has been working soooo well! I have been super impressed with both of these remedies. I have to say they really do work. The key is patience and consistency. If you can stick with it you can have super smooth legs or anywhere on your body really!

Lastly I am working on reformulating the cocoa butter mixture to be a little more user friendly. It is a solid lotion that melts into the skin. I think for my next batch I will add vitamin E to it and also use molds. Like I say in the past few posts. I am OBSESSED with this homemade cocoa butter lotion. OMG just sooooo good!

Okay y’all that is all for my half way update! I’m excited to see the results at the end of the 45 days!!

Morphe Brushes

Hello friends! For today’s post I wanted to write about something a little different. I wanted to write about the morphe drama that has been going on. Now if you haven’t heard I will give you a brief background. Basically Influencers get a code to offer their subscribers a discount on morphe products and they make money off of this code being used. Well people are making claims that the products don’t work and the brushes are cheap and fall apart. So these people are trying to call out these influencers saying they are just trying to make money by promoting bad product. Now let me give you my opinion and story.Screen Shot 2017-06-05 at 4.41.22 PM

My experience with Morphe has been nothing but amazing. Of course I did hear about Morphe from an influencer, Jaclyn Hill. She is queen and amazing. Aside from that I formed my own opinions on every product as any good reviewer should. So I started my Morphe journey by ordering a few brushes and OMG I fell in love. I have many many brushes but for the price you just can’t beat the exceptional quality. I saw videos of people roughly rubbing their brushes against their hands or legs and them falling apart, well HELLO?!?! Who does that? I have had absolutely not a single problem with any of my brushes.

Next I tried an eyeshadow pallet. I now own 5! They are sooo full of pigment and so smooth and creamy and blendable. Very affordable and very much worth it! At less than half the cost of an average eyeshadow pallet and you get way more colors! The 35K is one of my favorites so check it out!

Lastly I bought their new setting spray and without going in to much detail because it will definitely be in my monthly favorites, it is AMAZING!

Morphe is a great brand to get high quality makeup and makeup brushes on a mom budget. I give two thumbs way up!! I super approve!!

Till next time my dears!

xoxo Erin
