Ok so I know its been quite awhile since my last haul. Ive really been trying my best to figure my new site out and how it works. Im excited as ever tho to be sharing a few goodies from Sephora this month so lets jump into it.
I mainly got this set for my lil dolly. You can never be too young to start taking care of your skin and I want her to know taking care of her skin includes drawing attention to when our skin breaks out. Im excited to try it and plan on doing a full review with before and after pics.
Itsssss the beginning of all things fall very soon and let me just tell you I am sooo excited! Fall and Summer are my fave seasons. Although it still feels like summer here in Cali, when we finally do start getting fall weather I want to be locked loaded and ready! I am also working on a post that tells you what basic staple items you for sure NEED in your fall wardrobe!
One thing I just love about Target is how affordable they are yet they have high quality pieces. You can update your ENTIRE wardrobe for under $150 bucks and be able to mix and match staple pieces to make multiple outfits and still wont break the bank. I stopped by Target yesterday and did a try on and created some great yet affordable fall looks.
Before we know it fall will be here! Im sooo looking forward to the oversized chunky sweater trend, the boots and hot cocoa while watching alll the fall movies!! What fall trends are you looking forward to?? Tell me in a comment below!!
Happy Friday! Today ALL cardholders can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I wont have time to go in store and do a try on as I’m in the middle of working on a few exciting things that I cant wait to share with you. However, I wanted to put together a few of my personal style picks for inspo that I would personally purchase and wear in a world where “budget” and “parenting” did NOT exist 😂
P.s you can click on any pic below to shop via LTK
HAPPY NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY ! Today marks the 1st day of access to the sale for ICON members only! Many of you will not be in this tier (including me) but I always find it helpful to go over all the items and save my picks for when I am able to shop the sale. A lot of my faves from last year are also included in the sale so I will link a blog post I did for last year HERE.
#NSALE 2021 Sneak Peek |Everything you need to know to shop the sale
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the most anticipated sales of the year for shoppers, featuring products at incredible prices across every department. Yesterday July 6th, Nordstrom gave everyone a sneak peek at sale items prior to the start of the event which will begin July 12th for certain card holders. Which, depending on the tier of their card status have the opportunity to shop the sale during Early Access. I did a full funny blog post last year making fun of the whole tier system and comparing it to a high-school hierarchy LOL. You can read it HERE.
Now, in MY opinion the sale is so ridiculous to have these tier systems put in to place to begin with So I will NOT be shopping too much of the sale and also because I closed my Nordstrom credit card account to be part of the debt free community. So I probably wont be able to access the sale until public access anyways and by that time everything is usually out of stock. Any-who this blog post is specifically showcasing just a Sneak peek of a few of the items that I saw and loved. In my experience however, if you plan on shopping the sale, now is the time to add your fave items to your wishlist so you have full and easy access to them when the sale goes live. I plan on doing another post for high ticket items I think will sell out the quickest as well as what’s in my wishlist. And of course if I do purchase anything from the sale I will be sure to include that as well.

WHO CAN SHOP & WHEN?
Ok so in order to have early access and shop BEFORE July 28th you have to have a Nordstrom store card. If you dont have one and want one you can apply HERE. If you are not sure about your card status you can check it in your account settings.
Canada is also hosting a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but will have a different timing schedule:
For me, the best Sephora order always starts with a wish list of products I wanted to try. Also, Over several visits, LOL I always refine my list to include only products that I think would look great on me. It is always such a thrilling experience. The feel of new makeup, skincare or beauty product is seriously unmatched! Anywho, while I can go on about makeup literally FOREVER! Bwuahahahaha! I’m hoping you have a great start to your week and here is my Sephora haul for this month…BTW!! Ummm HAPPY JULY!!! Can you even?? Like where did the time go right??! 😱
Ok so having smooth soft legs is major goals whether we shave our legs or not. And if you’re like me and shave you want to have smoother legs in between shaving because HELLO! IM A MOM and aint no body got time to be shaving every single week you know. I mean am I right or AM I RIGHT? LOL!! So here are my top 5 steps to having silkier, smoother legs longer…
STEP 1: E X F O L I A T E
DID YOU KNOW?- That dead surface skin can be the cause of your legs to feel rough so when you use something to slough away the cells it really makes a difference. My go to body scrub is Tree Hut Moroccan rose shea sugar scrub. It smells amazing and leaves your skin feeling baby smooth!
STEP 2: U S E A G E N T L E B O D Y W A S H
Before I shave, I always use Lovers Care Goat’s milk shower cream. It has hydrating properties and is formulated with almond oil and cocoa butter which will give your skin a boost of moisture as it cleanses.
STEP 3: U S E A S H A V I N G C R E A M
Ok so this is probably the most important step. The product you use when you shave. It’s completely different from using soap as soap can be extremely drying. However a shaving cream is formulated to reduce the friction between the razor and the skin. I love the Billie shave cream. It sticks to your skin extremely well and allows for a smooth shave.
STEP 4: U S E A G O O D R A Z O R
Now not all razors are the same! Some are made with moisture strips which help reduce irritation to the skin. So choosing a great quality razor makes a huge difference in the end result to having the smoothest legs possible. I LOVE LOVE the Billie razors because they are encased in a charcoal soap for a smoother and closer shave. I legit had to shave weekly and ever since I started using the Billie razor Ive noticed that my hair doesnt start growing back until after a full week and a half.
STEP 5: U S E A B O D Y C R E A M O R O I L
So after exfoliating and shaving you need to make sure your skin receives as much hydration after as possible. I really love Billie Dry bye body lotion because it is specifically designed for that! I also love how weightless and matte it dries. Leaving skin hydrated and yet it doesn’t feel like there is any residue left so when you lay on your sheets you dont have that sticky nasty feeling…. SCORE!!
THIS travel makeup bag holds all my must-haves, all stashed in 1 handy bag! When I travel, I typically dont want to wear a full face of makeup let alone full coverage foundation. So I love taking tinted moisturizers or very light to medium coverage foundations to get that I definitely tried look. LOL. Here is a product breakdown of my must have travel essentials needed to create a nice low key, no makeup makeup look…
I am putting together a post for my must have travel faves for skincare and other miscellaneous items that I pack. So stay tuned for that!! If you need specific shade names or colors just let me know in the comments below.

Ok now that we have gotten all the basics out of the way. Let me just tell you, this has become my FAVORITE foundation! First I love any and everything that has hyaluronic acid in it ok! And the fact that there is niacin-amide to help brighten and reduce pores automatically makes this foundation my best friend?!!! Its soooo lightweight and feels like you aren’t wearing anything. It comes in 30 shades, I am in shade 54H deep honey. Its medium coverage so its perfect for on the go activities that merit a more no makep makeup look. Its also buildable so if you want a bit more coverage you can totally achieve it. I took it one step further to see if it woukd pass the ultimate test and wore it for a shoot outside in natural lighting and it looks soooo bomb OMG! Gives you such a beautiful and nice glow, perfect for summer out by the pool or beach. It does not move or cake up. The functionality and wearability of this foundation is honestly up their with some of the best foundations I have ever used. Also as always this product is vegan and dermatologist tested. Its also sweatproof, waterproof and gives you 12 hour hydration along with 16 hour wearability.
