10 Favorite Amazon Purchases

LATELY, I HAVE BEEN WATCHING A LOT OF YOUTUBERS SHOW WHAT THEY PURCHASED ON AMAZON, AND I HAVE LOVED IT. SO TODAY I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD SHARE MY FAVORITE AMAZON PURCHASES WITH YOU!

  1. My all-time favorite purchase from Amazon has been my fluffy red sweater. I wear it almost every day; it’s so cute and comfortable.  
  2. Throughout this pregnancy, my Amazon favorite is the Rumor Has It Maternity shirt. It’s so cute, comfortable, and super affordable. I currently have two more chilling in my cart. 
  3. This clear bag is so on-trend and perfect for Instagram photos. I use it every time I head to a meeting or a social event. 
  4. Tennis shoes have been my go-to lately. Perfect for my pregnancy and all of the walking that I do. 
  5. Another purchase that I use almost every day is these fantastic makeup brushes. They are super affordable and have lasted so long. 
  6. Staying in the beauty aspect, I purchased a new curling iron! I love me some cute curls. 
  7. Now it’s time for some phone accessories! I can’t get over my phone case. It looks super expensive, but it wasn’t! 
  8. As a blogger, I take a lot of my photos, so when I found this Amazon purchase, I had to have it. This SideKick phone mount is so convenient and easy to use. 
  9. I am a planner fool, so for the new year, I needed to try out a new planner. I found this Legendary planner that is so cute and motivational, right up my alley and affordable, once again. 
  10. Last but not least, I purchased a game for family night. Sequence is such fun, and the entire family plays it for hours and hours. It’s a game of strategy, and I ended up buying it for two of my other family members.

February Goals 2020

A new month is so refreshing to me; I love the chance of starting over. Everything that didn’t happen the month before, I make it a point to make it happen in the new month. February is a shorter month, but there are still enough days in the month to get shit done! In today’s post, I’m going to share all of my goals for this February.

My Goals for February

  • I have sold all of my bows from my Valentine’s Day collection. For those of you that don’t know, I own an Etsy shop and sell bows for little girls! You can check out my shop at the bottom of this post!
  • Hit 1,600 blog followers, I am currently at 1,503.
  • I have finished painting Julian’s crib, and all of his clothes are clean. I am 7 months pregnant and need to get my butt into gear, preparing for Julian’s arrival.
  • I have reached 4,000 on Instagram; this goal has been a long time coming. I am currently sitting at 3,723. I know that I can get to that 4K mark; I need to be more consistent. If you would like to contribute my following count and help me achieve my goal, you can follow me on Instagram here
  • A local company has reached out to me and would like to collaborate. I love working with people from my hometown.
  •  I have sold everything on Poshmark. 
  • I have $1,300 in my savings account. Saving has always been tough for me, but I have kicking ass at it this year and have hit many goals for last month. So here is to February!

Top 5 Favorite Maternity Favorites

I am currently in my 6th month of pregnancy, what a long journey this has been. On this journey, I have been through a lot, but I have sound some favorites that have kept me happy during this time. I feel the need to share these products with you just in case you are in the same boat that I am. These favorites are some game-changers; I hope that you enjoy this post. 

  1. Coconut Oil – My skin has been incredibly dry this pregnancy; my son has been sucking all of the moisture from my skin and leaving me with nothing. Coconut oil has saved my skin! It has so many benefits, not only is it a great makeup remover, but it is also an excellent moisturizer.
  2. What To Expect When You’re Expecting– This book has helped me understand the changes that my body has been going through and the growth of my baby.
  3. Adjustable Maternity Pant Extenders– These bad boys have saved me a ton of money. No need to splurge on maternity pants, when these exist.
  4. Anything Sour- Sour skittles, sour belts, just anything sour.
  5. Leggings- They always fit!

All of these products I have been using religiously! I hope that I helped you discover a maternity favorite. If you have any products that you recommend, I would love to try them out! Please leave them in the comments.

2020 New Year Goals

I love this time of year; this is the time to start fresh and become a better version of myself — it’s time to put my brain to use and think about what needs improvement in my life. So down below are some of my goals for the year 2020. I have put a lot of time and thought into these. I have a feeling that this is going to be the best year yet. 

This quote was found from Pinterest.
  1. I make more time for myself- I am always putting others before me. I am going to make it a priority to put myself first. 
  2. I will hit 50k followers on Instagram- I mean, who doesn’t want a big social media following? 
  3. I work with more local companies- Collaborations for my blog and Instagram. 
  4. I utilize my time better- I need to be more productive and manage my time better. 
  5. 2020 will be the year that I buy a house. 
  6. I drink more water- This goal is on my list every year. 
  7. I have stopped comparing myself and my life to others on social media. 
  8. I show up every day, and I do my personal best. 
  9. My credit score is 750. 
  10. I have more patience with everything and everyone. 

I can’t wait to cross all of these goals off my list next year; I can only go up from here. 

I hope that 2020 treats you better than in 2019. Happy Goal Setting.

Top 10 Favorite Red Lipsticks

The holidays are upon us!

I know that I can’t be the only one that loves a beautiful, classic, red lip this time of year. It’s so festive and speaks holiday time! The best part about wearing red lipstick is that it can be dressed up, (rocking a bold smokey eye, lashes to the heavens, and glitter upon glitter!). It can also be another casual Monday at the office kind of look (no eye shadow, natural and wispy lashes, and hair in a sleek bun).

Today I have gathered 10 of my top favorite red lipsticks to share with you. Most of these are super affordable and are at your local drug store. I hope that you enjoy this short yet informative post! I will be linking all of the lipsticks that I share with you down below.

All of these lipsticks apply smoothly and beautifully!

I hope that you enjoyed this post; it was fun to share these products with you. If you have other red lip recommendations, please leave them in the comments! I am always looking to try out something new.

Happy holidays!

Liberex Makeup Brush Cleaner Review

Another day, another blog post! Today I have a review for you, all about the Liberex Electrical Makeup Brush Cleaner. I received this product a little while ago and tested it out for the first time today! 

Here is how she looks! Sleek, not too bulky, and comfortable to hold.
It includes:
electrical brush cleaner
-charger
-brush cleaner stand
-makeup brush holder attachments
bowl for the water

So if you have never heard of or seen an electrical makeup brush cleaner, I’ll give you a little run down. It is an excellent, small device that will spin your makeup brushes in a bowl of water, clean them for you, as well as air-drying them.

Can I just say, this product does wonders! If you are someone that has a lot of brushes like myself, then it probably takes you a while to hand wash them. With this device, it cuts my brush cleaning time in half! It was easy to figure out, very compact, and easy to travel with. Can I say this product does wonders! If you are someone that has a lot of brushes like myself, then it probably takes you a while to hand wash them. With this device, it cuts my brush cleaning time in half! It was easy to figure out, very compact, and easy to take on the road.

I love the fact that I can see how dirty the water gets; I can see all of the makeup coming out of my brush. It’s so satisfying to know that my brushes are getting a deep clean.

There are a variety of attachments, which I love because not all makeup brushes are the same size. I also like that I know when the device is ready for use, it will flash red when it is charging and turn blue when it’s fully charged.

Overall I believe that this product retails for $26 and is worth every penny. I received my cleaner from Amazon, and I will leave the link for you down below!

Thank you so much for reading! I look forward to posting for you soon.

Best Cleaning Products + GIVEAWAY

I have spent the majority of my life cleaning. My mom always made me clean, so naturally, I spend about 85% of my life, cleaning my house and doing laundry. I am regularly washing dishes, vacuuming, and running back and forth to the laundry room. It can get pretty exhausting, but that’s my life.

With all of my years of cleaning, I have tried all kinds of different products. Just recently, I came across a new brand that I have been using non-stop. Have you heard of Sapadilla? If you have, you get a high-five from me. If you haven’t, that’s okay; I’m about to share some excellent information with you.

Sapadilla products have plant-based ingredients and have 100% pure essential oil blends. Did I mention that they are also cruelty-free and made in the United States?

Sapadilla carries products from laundry soap and dish soap to countertop and all-purpose cleansers.

Scents:
Grapefruit + Bergamont
Rosemary + Peppermint
Sweet Lavender + Lime

I love the fact that Sapadilla products are super affordable; I don’t want to spend a ton of money on something that I am continuously buying.

Since I love these products, I am giving you a chance to try them out for yourself! I am hosting a giveaway on my Instagram, make sure to head that way to enter. Sapadilla and I will be giving away a countertop cleaner, hand soap, and dish soap.

If you are too excited and don’t want to wait for the giveaway, you can head to Sapadilla.com and purchase your cleaning supplies.

I want to thank Sapadilla for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
