Bath Time Troubles

I have recently made a discovery that should have been super obvious but it wasn’t until it happened to me and my family! While going through our normal night time routine of giving baby K a bath I realized that some of his bath toys were dark inside. They were growing mold!!!! GROSS! One squeeze of our bathtime basket balls and black gross-ness was in the bath water. I quickly removed the toys and drained the water. This is when I decided that there will be no more bath toys with holes in them.. which is surprising a lot to ask for.

Most bath toys I found were squeeze toys that squirt water. Knowing that I wasn’t just going to keep buying bath toys that could grow mold on the inside and that are very difficult to clean, I kept searching. I finally found a set of plastic boats that can’t hold on to moisture at walmart and found rubber duckies at target that don’t have a pesky hole in the bottom!

Moms make sure you are checking bath toys for mold and drying toys out if they do have holes!!

Be back tomorrow friends! Hope your October is rocking so far!!!

September Goals

This months goals I want to keep similar to August.

  • Keep working on myself. Not let things bother me and not get upset over things I “think” but haven’t or aren’t going to happen.
  • Stay consistent and keep growing my blog/social medias. I have been doing so good but every once in a while I get distracted and I need to continue working really hard.
  • Focus on being healthy and making healthy choices and being active. Not solely focused on losing weight.
  • Be more organized. I keep everyone one else in my house organized and I stay organized with homework but my room and my spaces in the house need revamped

I think this is actually kind of a lot to stay up on for this month but I know I can do it!!

What are your goals this month?

August Goals

I have seen a few of my fellow bloggers write post like this and I thought it was a great idea. Keep me more aware and oriented on accomplishing some goals whether big or small.

  1. Continue blogging regularly, coming up with ideas and creating content. Consistency is key with just about everything.
  2. Work out at least 5 times a week for 30 minutes. Continue to eat better and continue my health journey.
  3. Be better about accessorizing and dressing. Most days I find myself never getting out of my PJ’s just to shower and get back into new PJ’s. But I stay home most of the time. I have tons of clothes and jewelry and they deserve as much love as my makeup gets.. or at least close lol
  4. Be less crazy… this would take a lot of explaining but I let little things bother me and I am actively working on changing my thought process on things.
  5. Try to film and take pictures more often. Blogging and being very active on social media can be a lot of work but it also can be fun and is necessary if you want to continue to grow!

Alright I am ready to tackle August! I am feeling good and am super motivated to accomplish goals!

What are y’alls goals??

Till next time

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!!

xoxo Erin

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!!!

My 5-Minute Makeup Routine

Hey lovelies! I’m going to quickly give you the products that make up my 5 minute makeup. I do this look when I have to run to the store, doctor appointments, etc.

So here are the products! :

Eyes I quickly throw on some primer, my favorite is smashbox 24 hour primer and then I add a taupe eyeshadow by Milani all over the lid and add a CK eyeshadow in a shimmery peachy color.. apparently it isn’t being made anymore which breaks my heart. I will have to find a dupe!

Next I add my Screen Shot 2017-05-12 at 1.27.56 PMlancome visionnaire to help moisturize and prime. If you are on the dry side you will want to add a moisturizer underneath. On top of this I next add my foundation and powder

As I have said many many times I am obsessed with e.l.f. products.

After my face I add some blush and mascara. Screen Shot 2017-05-12 at 1.33.46 PMThen I am ready to go!! This is the Milani blush which I am OBSESSED with!!
