Home Decor!

As some of you know we recently moved and bought a new home. Well new to us, but the house looks very 70’s in some rooms so this post will be in parts. Our yard is simply beautiful but the inside of the house needed some TLC.

While my husband was away for work my mother came down and helped me decorate the house and help with the kids. So grateful because my kids can be quite the handful when they choose. Isn’t that how it always is? Be crazy when dad is away.. anyways I wanted to share some fun wall art pieces that I picked up and put up around the house.

yes some of my walls are not the greatest of color but that will be another times project. I will share more complete images once I have the house together completely! But I love this little welcome sign I place right in the front entry way. You will see most pieces I have picked up will be wood and galvanized metal and tin. I love the rustic, farmhouse feel. This piece I absolutely love. I have tons of mason jars and even though it says it’s a candle holder I see flowers in these jars. What do you think?I got both of these tin/wood signs and placed each appropriately in the laundry and bathroom. I love them! They are pretty big so they add to the space without needing more or leaving too much blank space. Each one of these came from TJMaxx. I am all about a great deal and where I live, TJMaxx is pretty much the only store! They were all such a great deal how could I pass them up? Let me share a couple more items I grabbed!I am all about these metal mugs. I literally went through and pretty much got rid of all other coffee cups. Plus these can’t break and I am a total klutz. I freaked out when I saw the store had more and had to bring them home. The littlest things make me so happy!I also picked up this little crate to sit in the bathroom. The kids bathroom is pretty small so I use this to keep the space looking clean and oraganized. I keep the kids washcloths in it as well as wet wipes, extra toilet paper, q-tips..etc. This last picture shows my dining table. I picked up the runner at TJMaxx but the salt and pepper shakers, metal pitcher, and floral arrangement all came from Walmart. I feel Walmart really stepping up lately with what they offer. Everything is so cute, super budget friendly and fits my farmhouse theme perfectly!

I can’t wait to share more as I complete DIYs and other home projects and as we get renovations done! So stay tuned!

I’m Back! Here’s How I Would Pack Next Time… Major Change!

Hello Friends! I am finally settled back into normal life. I had an amazing time on my honeymoon in Punta Cana. The weather was perfect and we met amazing people that hopefully we get to stay in touch with. I did however pack too much makeup. I know I can’t believe I am saying that. My skin was, thankfully, was so clear I really didn’t need much. Plus with the heat and humidity you don’t want to feel like you are melting. The first day I wore all my makeup and not a single day after that did I. Here is literally what I wore each day and what I will be packing for the July 4th weekend trip we are taking. IMG_5919

  1. I used my Tarte Shapetape concealer as foundation. I just dotted a tiny bit all over my face and blended it in. It gave a light evenness to my skin which was perfect.IMG_5923
  2. I gave my skin a little color by using a bronzer/blush by Too Faced. IMG_5924
  3. I gave my eyes a quick wash of color by using one of my favorite small palettes by Bad Habit Beauty. Nothing too crazy.IMG_5925
  4. Of course I had to do my brows with my absolute favorite product, ELF Lock on liner and brow cream. It looks so natural and stays on all day.IMG_5922
  5. Next I add some mascara using the Tarte Tarteist mascara.IMG_5926
  6. Throw on some lips. I used different products but I feel in love again while rediscovering the Buxom lip gloss in Mai Tai.IMG_5921
  7. Lastly and most importantly I put on Lashes every single night. It just makes everything look put together and takes any simple look and elevates it. I used the Eden Rose faux mink Lashes in the style Heartbreaker. I also used the House of Lashes Lash glue in the dark color.IMG_5920

So that’s it! 7 super simple steps and just a few products lead to a perfect look that was easy to do but looked glamorous still. What are your favorite go to products?

What I’m Packing For a Caribbean Honeymoon

Hello Friends, (It’s my birthday)!!!!!! As my honeymoon gets closer and closer I have been focused on my fitness and getting in better shape and of course what I will be packing. I have been in a bit of rut where I literally only where yoga pants and loose fit tee shirts. I’m not 100% confident in this post baby body but I am working on it and making progress.

Anywho, I have stumbled upon a website called SheIn.com. I found them on pinterest. They have tons and tons of clothes, shoes, and accessories all for incredible prices! I have been waiting for my first order to come in before I wrote anything first because I wanted to check the quality. I have shopped from discount sites before and returned everything because of the terrible quality. So far I have been so happy and even placed another order. I wanted to share what I go with you and What I’ll be packing for my trip to Punta Cana.

Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.12.02 PM6$ I’m your typical girl who sleeps in giant comfy shirts so I felt like treating myself and husband to some cute satin pj’s. Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.13.21 PM12$ I love how easy this little dress is and so flowy. I’ll easily be able to wear it again and again and even when I’m pregnant!Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.14.11 PM9$ I had to get atleast one swim suit and I love the pattern on this one so much. I wanted something white but not solid. Perfect! Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.15.21 PM10$ I got this body suit to go specifically with a pair of satin shorts I have. Tho I didn’t realize it doesn’t have the snaps in the bottom.. ha! Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.17.04 PM19$ I love how perfect this dress is for a night out. The slit and low cut gives a bit of edge while still being girly and soft. Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.18.38 PM8$  At only 8 dollars I just really couldn’t pass this little dress up. Perfect for day trips and lunches!Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.19.26 PM17$ I am all about 60’s/70’s style clothes and this dress just spoke to me. It was a must. So light and airy.  Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.20.47 PM7$ I mean how sexy is this tank top?? I love that lace cutout showing just a touch of skin without being too scandalous.Screen Shot 2018-04-08 at 1.21.15 PM14$ I thought this kimono would be a perfect beach coverup or worn over shorts like the model is doing. So cute, I love the oversized print.

 

I apologize for using the site’s photos, I know some people hate that. I don’t have all the pieces in yet and wanted things to look uniform. But what do you think? I am so excited about expanding my wardrobe!! I also picked up some bras but thought that was a little boring to share. Just a friendly reminder to always check size charts and I like to take notice if the fabrics have stretch as well.

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!!

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.
