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.
As we start to get ready for warmer weather. Naturally shorts would be on the list of items you want to purchase. With the many different brands, options and cost it can be so difficult tho. So when I find great-looking, high quality shorts that are comfortable and affordable I have to share.
These distressed high waisted denim shorts are sooo good! They fit comfortably have a lil bit of stretch to them and look designer but a fraction of the price. They are currently on sale so thats a bonus! They also feature distressed hem which I really love on any type of denim.
You can find great inexpensive denim shorts regardless of if you’re a guy or gal. And just like a high end pair, they can last forever if you take care of them. If you haven’t got a go to pair of shorts that you can wear over and over again why not check out these denim short selections Here

2. Eat Healthy
When you eat healthy you feel great, which overall contributes to your physical well being. I know cooking and preparing healthy meals can be time consuming and just stressful. I have found that using Home Chef provides quality meals made simple. They are delivered straight to your door and always come fresh! You can read about my very first experience with Home Chef Here and one of my absolute fave recipes from them is Here.
3. Skin Care
Again I truly believe and have always said when you look good you feel good. It goes hand in hand. A good skin care routine can do wonders on your mental health. Your skin looking and feeling its greatest will shine thru and boost your confidence like no-ones business. Lol. My current skincare routine has done exactly that and I have received more compliments about my skin now then I ever did wearing a full face of makeup! You can check out my full skin care routine Here, my holy grail skincare edition Here and my 6 steps to a fresh face morning routine Here.
4. Meditate and stay positive
Taking time out of your schedule be it early in the morning or late at night contribute to your mental and overall health. It relieves stress levels and gives you that time to focus on what YOU personally need as an individual, Not you the mom, or you the wife, or you the teacher. Just YOU. Sometimes it can be hard. I know I personally still struggle sometimes. I wrote a post that talks about 4 things you can do to have a positive mindset Here and 5 tips that will help you stay positive when everything you see and hear is negative Here.
Whether you do all four, a few or some of your own. Self care is vital to practice in our every day life. It contributes to our mental health, and makes you focus on your most valuable player… YOU. I hope you all have a great weekend, stay safe and thanks for stopping by! Until next time…
Wooohoo!! I’m headed to take a lil vacation!!! LOLOL just kidding! I’m still quarantining. But IF I were traveling I would wear this amazingly comfortable and super cozy outfit. First off the material is soooo soft. It’s pretty lightweight as well so it can be layered or worn as is. I especially love the button detail towards the bottom of the joggers which just gives it a dainty yet stylish look. This outfit would also be nice to just lounge around in the house on a lazy weekend, Which is exactly what I plan on doing in lieu of going on a trip. Sooo exciting riiite hahaha. Anywho, I hope you all have a great weekend and stay safe. Until next time…
Worth the hype or not: Barefoot Dreams blanket edition || & an amazing dupe
Happy Monday friends! Today I want to put into question what all the fuss is about over the ever so popular Nordstrom Barefoot Dreams blanket. For years now this blanket has been the most sought after, celebrity endorsing, blogger approved, rarely goes on sale but always sold out, not even cheaper on Amazon blanket that I personally have ever heard of… WHY???
Well as far as I went back on researching this I came to find out that this blanket was actually made popular by the Kardashians. Particularly Khloe Kardashian. She would be seen carrying the blanket in question alllll the time. In multiple scenes and pics. I don’t know if she was sponsored to or not but what I do know is that by looking at all the pics and videos it was all back when the Kardashians DID NOT look like the Kardashians that we know and see today. So that tells you without telling you lol😜
The blanket has also been approved by other celebrities like Christy Tiegen & Jennifer Garner just to name a few. But why is this blanket sooooo freakin popular when it’s just made of polyester??? Is it really worth all the hype? What is a good dupe for it?
Well of course I got the blanket from Nordstrom since I can’t give my real and honest review on it without actually having it. Personally I have used This blanket that my hubby legit fights me for (even tho it’s mine) for years now and it is the coziest most comfy and soft double Sherpa blanket that I literally take with me everywhere! It has been part of my holy grail for a while now & I was pretty happy with it and was not on the hunt for a replacement. Now with that being said, this is my job to try products and clothing items and in turn give my honest review and if along the way of trying those items I love it then they make the “holy grail” list. Just to give a lil clarity. I’m disclosing that because I will be comparing my current holy grail/fave blanket from VS Pink with the blanket in question BFDs along with the dupe option I’ve chosen from Pink Lily!
Ok so let’s start with a few specs of the blankets:
How big are the blankets:
BFDs- 54″ x 72″
VS Pink- 50″ x 60″
Pink Lily- 70″ x 44″
What are the blankets made of:
BFDs- 100% polyester microfiber
VS Pink- double sided Sherpa
Pink Lily – faux fur/ polyester
How much are the blankets:
VS Pink- $59.95
Pink Lily- $94.00
Do they come in a variety of colors:
VS Pink- No
Pink Lily- yes!
How do they look:
Ok so here’s what you came here for… my thoughts on the BFDs blanket is this: I can definitely see why and how everyone snd their mother really likes the blanket. Over all it is amazingly soft, It feels exactly like the Bare foot dreams cardigan (if you already have one for reference) all the designs are super cute and they have quite a bit to choose from! Honestly all 3 blankets feel pretty much the same. The only difference besides the size and physical appearance of the 3 were that the BFDs was literally a smidge bit thicker. I’m thinking of doing a fun lil test later today on my insta stories to see which blanket feels the best while blind folded that include hubby, Dolly , Anjee mama & my mommy dearest and see their picks! Follow me on Instagram Here to check it out!
So my final thoughts on this overly coveted blanket is- Yes! It is super trendy but NO it is not worth the hype nor the high end price tag! Now please don’t get me wrong I do love the blanket a lot! So much so I am now using it as my permanent blanket. And if you are a person who doesn’t mind dropping 2 bills for a blanket and you really want to then yes! Do what makes you happy, especially if you can afford it. I can tell you won’t be disappointed. However there is absolutely no way that I would spend that much for a blanket outside of this review. So, If you are a person who loves a good dupe then the below blankets are perfect for you! They feel almost identical to the BFDs one but are a much reasonable price tag. Also hubby is obsessed with it. He ended up claiming for himself LOL! While Dolly took over my VS Pink one.
Some of the options are actually on sale right now so it’s a great opportunity to take advantage. Click any pic to shop item:
Here is another dupe option (also on sale) that I have not personally tried but have heard good things about. This was definitely fun to do above anything else. Looking forward to doing many more reviews. If you have a specific thing you would like me to review pleas let me know below! Until next time…
