Shows I Bing

I recently found out my best friend barely watches tv. I was floored! I mean good on her for not watching tons of television but I told her about all my fav shows that I need in my life! So I figured I would share with y’all what I’m loving! As you will soon be able to tell I love a good comedy.

  1. The office. Classic need I say more? I’ve watched it start to finish at least 30 times and I’ll continue to watch it over and over.
  2. Rick and Morty. It is hilarious and dark. I love it.
  3. Bobs Burgers. This is the most relatable cartoon which makes it sooo dang funny. I love all the characters.
  4. Last Man on Earth. Rudely ended without a real ending which sucks soo bad but this show is so freaking funny!! Must watch.
  5. Baskets. This one is a dark comedy but it’s Zach Galifianakis so you know its good.
  6. What We Do In The Shadows. This is filmed documentary style on vampires. It’s soo good! I can’t wait for more seasons!
  7. Portlandia: such a great sketch comedy that has story lines that continue to grow throughout the seasons. Plus Fred Armisen is a favorite of mine. He’s too funny!
  8. Broad City: is filthy and hilarious and I couldn’t get enough of it. Even if I disagreed with 75% of what they say it was so hilarious I bought all the seasons in dvd!!

I’m sure there are a few more that I’ll come back and add but these are the shows I love the most and watch on repeat. I honestly couldn’t care less about new shows when I have these!

What are your favorites? Let me know!!!

Boxycharm..

Hey everyone! How is your week treating you? Today I wanted to take a little time to talk about boxycharm. As you know if you’ve been a reader for a while I am obsessed with getting my boxycharm box each month, but lately I’ve been a little underwhelmed.

I usually do a monthly post sharing what goodies I received and what an amazing deal it is. While it still is the best deal out there and it’s fun to get new products to try out I have not been in love with what I’ve been getting. I haven’t made the post the last month or two because we have been moving and traveling and so I currently do not have an address.

So let’s take this months box. We all received a face oil primer type of product that I will literally never open. I also received a face serum of which I also will probably never touch. I am excited about the Becca setting powder and the lip liner and that alone pays for the box and more but I just don’t know. I don’t expect to love every product but this and upcoming boxes just don’t feel exciting anymore. I really feel like they have grown almost too big and can’t give everyone products that they would really want? Also I find it extremely frustrating that youtubers, influencers, and people like the kardashians are receiving the box… These people already get every makeup item out there for free and are more than able to pay for the box if they choose. But them getting the box early and with the very best variations of the box is not right.

I know I’m venting a bit but they really need to focus on those of us who pay and not on people who are getting all the products directly from brands already!!

What are your thoughts? Let me know!

I just went grocery shopping for all my healthy ingredients for the dinners I will be cooking for me and my husband. I wanted to share one that I just whipped up and was super good!

Breakfast Tacos:

I believe breakfast is good at all times of the day so I threw this together and it was soo good!

For one taco or burrito you need (keep in mind you can adjust the ingredients to your liking):

Baby Brand Showdown

Alright fellow mommas and poppas! I have tested out just about every diaper brand available in stores to give you the full scoop! Of course know that these are all my opinions, I purchased everything myself and every baby is different.

Best overall

Hello Bello is a winner in every category! It’s a great price, gives great coverage, has super cute designs and the brand offers a full line of baby products. And I use them all!! You San save even more buy doing the subscription service! Diapers, wipes, diaper cream, body wash, lotion, conditioner and now they even have vitamins, baby oil and baby powder. It’s formulated without harsh chemicals and the packaging is adorable. Do yourself a favor, head to Walmart and try it out! They have multiple scents so there is something for everyone!

Honest brand:

I really enjoyed the honest company brand. The packaging is also adorable and the diapers worked well but it is a bit expensive. All the bath products smell nice and work well but again you’ll be paying for it!

Pampers:

I know so many people like pampers but let me just say I do NOT like them at all. The diapers always leaked and blew out and they are expensive!! Yea they are a no go in my house.

Huggies:

Huggies was always my go to and favorite brand with my first baby. I still love them. They are great quality and the price isn’t awful. I made the switch to Hello Bello and love that they are a great price and made with plant materials! I still use these for my son and huggies makes the best wipes!

Luvs:

They are cheap and they work but they feel scratchy and cheap. That’s pretty much all there is to that. Not exciting.

Seventh Generation:

Wanting to try a more natural diaper? Seventh generation are okay. I found they leaked bad if my baby laid on her side at all. And they were very expensive. Cute designs tho!

It’s so great that Kristin Bell and Dax Shepard came out with a brand using plant based materials and cleaner ingredients to create such an affordable brand!! They really beyond impressed me and work so well for my baby girl! Check them out!

Today is the day!

Hey friends! Listen up because I am about to spill some truth. How many times have you watched someone do something amazing and think wow they are incredible! I wish I could be like that. Or of course they did that, they are amazing. ??? Why!? You are amazing too! I’ve done some reflecting in my time off and I watch all these amazing people do incredible things and I finally woke up.

I am incredible too!

We sell ourselves short because our subconscious mind tells us we can’t do things or that it’s too hard. Let’s get real, achieving the things we truly want in life takes hard work! And not giving up during the hard times is even harder!!

Lately I would keep telling myself that I don’t have time to do things for myself because I have two babies to take care of and a house to keep in order and 3 meals to make a day and then keep these kids clean, change 15 diapers a day and in between it all try and sneak a shower. Most days I found myself lucky if I was able to take a nap if the lord blessed me with both kids napping at the same time. But I woke up and realized that that napping during that blessing was only selling myself short. That is a free hour that I could read, write, or workout, or do any number of things to work on my self development as a person.

We are in control of our happiness so take a more conscious look at how you spend your time and how you use your words. Stop talking yourself down. Tell yourself that you are worthy of your dreams and you are just as awesome as the people you watch on social media!

I have always had a dream of writing a book and I let it go. But I’m taking more conscious action to work hard on my business and work on my book!

Get healthy! Click here and leave your email below and I would be ecstatic to help you on this journey!

Summer favorites!

Hello friends. I took some time and tried to address myself and who I wanted to be and consistent is a downfall area in my life since I had kids. I realized why am I not writing since I take a chunk of time to pump while the kids are still asleep in the morning. So instead of playing games on my phone I will be more dedicated to myself and my goals! 💚

We are currently packing up some things in the house to prepare to be “homeless” (going to live with my parents) while we find a new house. A lot of big changes are going on in our family with my husband getting out of the military and moving into the civilian world. And basically that has left us not knowing where in The world we are moving! All this travel has left me with a perfected skin and makeup routine of my favorite and essential products and here they are!!

Must have skincare

  • Prep work cleansing polish. This gently scrubs and exfoliates my skin leaving it super clean and smooth. It’s a must have, especially for makeup days! Find it here!
  • Prep work overnight face jelly. This over night moisturizer has been a game changer. My skin is soo dry since having kids and after just one night of using this product my skin is left baby soft. I love that these product are natural, clean, and vegan formulated. I can feel good about what goes on my skin. Find it here!
  • Prep work micellar water. This is my favorite cleanser for no makeup days and lazy days! It’s so quick and easy and leaves my skin super cleaner and I love that it is a no rinse formula. Find it here!
  • RE9 advanced corrective eye cream. Sometimes I literally forget I am almost 30! Like what?! I still feel I am 22… yea. This eye cream is my favorite. Keeps me looking what I am feeling lol Find it here!

There are so many more skincare products I could add but I will do a separate post on my skincare routine!

Makeup must haves
