{amazon favorites}

SHOP: Dress | Stadium Purse | Denim Jacket (30% off)

Amazon addicts unite! Ha! I never thought I was a big Amazon-er. Then I started compiling this blog post and one thing led to another and I was going down the rabbit hole. And I realized, I’m an amazon whore…lol!

Truth: I’m still to cheap to pay for Prime so, I hack into my sister + Cory’s account to use theirs.

I’ve listed everything out with prices and a brief reason why I dig this item.

Do you have any of these Amazon finds? If so, let a sister know. Is there something I MUST try? Let me know!

{how I make money blogging}

SHOP: Crochet Sweater | Black Denim | Clogs ($40) | Sunnies | Starbucks Tumbler

Thirsty Thursday got the best of me. I’ll blame it on my Mom! We went to see The Lion King. Made a detour at Nugget after the movie for a bottle of wine. Found out they are having a sale on Bogle (my fave) $6.99 a bottle. So, we ended up getting 3. And a loaf of bread and cheese. Dinner!

Currently surviving on mass amounts of coffee, Lumify drops (THE best), kids chew-able Tylenol and my dark sunnies…ha! Seriously worth it. Sometimes you gotta get a little tips!

So, this week alone, I’ve had 5 people ask me about my blog. Not really sure why I post clothes. And why I always say “link in bio”. And “you make money?” Honestly, it never crossed my mind that everyone and their mothers didn’t already know what I was up too.

I’m spillin the tea on what I do . How I do it. And Yes, I do make money. Since it’s such a HOT topic. And it’s no secret, so I’m laying it all out.

Before I dive in, I want to THANK you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank you to those that shop from my blog, facebook or instagram. I hope you know how much I appreciate when you take the time to shop through my links. I work really hard to find the best sales and deals. To make it convenient for you! Truly, I enjoy it. And your continued support makes it that much more fun!

You. Are. The. Best!

So here’s the tea sis…..

{celery juicin’}

Celery juice.  Even if you live in a hole, chances are you’ve heard about it.  Because everyone suddenly seems to be drinking the green juice.  And not just drinking.  But, straight up swearing by it.  Like it’s some kind of miracle juice.

Well, it kinda is.  Celery has been hailed as a miraculous superfood.  Hard to believe, right?

It’s basically become a global movement.  Everyone is doin’ it.

Here’s the scoop…..

{i shaved my face and you should too}

img_3656

Teeth Whitening // Rose Water // Facial Razor // Jade Roller // Marble Tray

I shaved my face last night.  But, I’ve decided I’m going to say I tried dermaplaning instead.  As soon as the words “shaved” and “my face” are said, peeps instantly freak the fuck out.  Ha!  It’s okay, I kinda thought the same thing too.  Then I did some research.  I’m not going to grow a beard!

I really, really wanted to try and video a portion of it.  But, once I had the razor in my hand, decided safety first and put the phone down. lol!

Just like all the fads that come out.  Charcoal teeth whitening.  Jade rolling.  Rosewater spray.  Cory always says, “do you have to try everything?”

Yes, of course I do!  #YOLO

I’m what they call a sucker.  You tell this $10 conatiner of shit is gonna make me skinny or pretty…SOLD!

I’m also too cheap to pay for Amazon Prime, so I have to ask Cory to purchase all my random shit for me.  Ha!  Hence, why he’s concerned that I’m a sucker for trends.

Let’s chat about the fads that I’ve tried…..

 

Facial Razor // We have to start with this one.  I dermaplaned my face last night.  I read so many reviews.  Amazon alone has over 1,800.  You guys would straight up DIE if you saw all the peach fuzz and dead skin that came off that tiny little razor.  So disgusting.  I didn’t realize what a hairy bitch I was.  But, the results – I’m a believer.  My face is so, so smooth.  My makeup went on so incredibly smooth this morning.  Even a little glow!  It’s like an exfoliation at a deeper level.  All in the comfort of your very own bathroom.  And it only costs $5.  I will continue doing this procedure.  Maybe weekly?

Just trust me on this one, k?

This is the video I watched: LISTEN UP GIRLFRIEND | SHAVE YOUR FACE

What is dermaplaning?

{things I’m afraid to tell you}

IMG_0430

Every now and again I get a message that starts with something like: “your life is so perfect” or “how do you have your shit together all.the.time”

Ha!  Let’s be real…..I DON’T!!!

I mean, who does?

I’m not living in a life full of unicorns and rainbows.  I’m a mother, a single mother at that.  Daughter.  Sister.  Friend.  Girlfriend.  Full-time worker.  Blogger.  Volunteer.

Life is hard.

I like to think I’m pretty much an open book.  Although, I tend to share things I enjoy.  Things I dig.  Pretty things.  Who wants to post or chat about their flaws on social media?  The internet judgement committee is already working overtime, I personally don’t want to give them any fuel.

The idea of this post is to step out of my comfort zone and perfectly curated + filtered instagram photos and tell you some shit that I don’t post about!

 

So, here we go.  Things I’m afraid to tell you!  Some of my dirty little secrets……

{marble + decoupage easter eggs}

IMG_1998.PNG

Anyone in a funk today?  I swear every.single.person I’ve chatted with this week has said their day has just been off.  Or weird.  Even the cashier at Old Navy told me, “today literally sucks!”  So I googled it.

Is Mercury in retrograde?

I don’t get too caught up in things, but I knew something was up!  So if your day is just not normal and you can’t figure out what is up.  Blame it on Mercury!  Then do something nice for yourself.

What do you do to get out of a funk or make yourself happier?  Here’s what I try to do…..

  1. Put on your fave pandora station and rock out.  Dr. Dre Radio does it for me!
  2. Go outside.  It’s frickin beautiful.  The sun is good for the soul.
  3. Do something for you!  Get a mani.  Happy hour with a girlfriend.  Buy a cute top (that’s what I always do) lol.
  4. Give yourself a compliment.  When’s the last time you did that?  Look at yourself in the mirror and say “I am a bad ass b*#@ and I got this!”
  5. Put away your phone.  Unless you’re watching ashleylongshoreart hilarious videos.  They always make me laugh out loud.

Smile homegirl.  Tomorrow is a new day:)

And back to the regularly scheduled Easter Egg post……

I got some crap for hard boiling my Easter eggs so soon.  It’s a bloggers life….lol.  I do everything wayy before.  Wayyy too early.  That way I can share all my tips + tricks to all my peeps.  So when I hard boil my eggs over a week early, that’s why.  Mmmkaayyy!

One year, a while back…..Bay was probably 5 ish years old?  I think.  Someone got tipsy and forgot to dye the Easter eggs the night before.  Because back then, I did everything last-minute.  So, the Easter Bunny hid plain white hard-boiled eggs.

Don’t let this happen to you.  You’ll never live it down.  Trust me!

So, don’t bust a girls balls for hard-boiling + decorating Easter Eggs “too soon!”  You never know the backstory….lol.

That was a lot of rambling….

Ready for the Easter Egg decorating yet?

Remember when I did the {marbled pumpkin diy} for Halloween?  This is basically the same thing.

{friday 5}

IMG_8392

Frrriiiidaaayyyy!  Did you happen to check the weather forecast for mañana?  (I had to google how to do the ñ = Alt + 0241 try it!!)  Sunshine + 70 degrees.  I’ll take it considering it’s going to get cold and possibly rainy next week.  It’s been a very productive week.  Bay got her official 4-H officer shirt.  So cute.  Celebrated Fat Tuesday with a homemade King Cake.  Bay got the baby, so she’s in change of planning the next party/dinner.  Lent is in full swing.  We celebrated Valentine’s day ♥ Bay + I ugly cried for about 1 hr 53 min last night watching Wonder.  SUCH a great movie!  I completed week #1 of Kaia CORE this morning #sore

Speaking of this morning……

Do you ever have a day where you feel like a human garbage disposal?  I’m not sure what the hell happened to me this morning, but I could not stop eating.  Just to hold myself accountable, and so you can probably laugh your ass off.  Here’s what I consumed from 6:15 ish till 11am:

ACV shot

coffee with collagen

egg over leftover roast veggies

handful flaming hot Cheetos (they fell out of the snack bag I was packing for bay’s lunch)

chocolate covered macadamia nut (I totally thought they were gone…score)

another handful flaming hot Cheetos (damnnnn, I forgot how good they are)

package of fruit snacks (while I got ready, duh)

coffee #2

la croix

almonds

Atkins Caramel Chocolate Nut Roll (so so good)

 

Please tell me that this happens to other peeps every now and again?  I’m kinda freaking out…..

And I currently cannot stop thinking about lunch!

 

Enough of that, I’ve still got 5 things on my mind…..

 

ONE – Lent //  You guys are NEVER going to guess what I gave up for lent?!?!

Cursing!

No f bombs for 40 days.  FOURTY days!

Every.single.person I’ve told, laughed.  Nobody has any faith in me.  Let’s clarify….does this mean I cannot say bad words.  But, I can still type + text them, right?  Ha.  I’m giving up both.  The f bomb is probably one of my most typed words in my text messages.  My iPhone no longer auto corrects to “ducking”

As recommended, I’m wearing a rubber-band around my wrist and I snap myself when I say/write a bad word.

Bay says my wrists are going to be black + blue by day 40 🙂

I think I got this!  Oh and yesterday’s post didn’t count, since it was written pre-lent 🙂

Bay gave up YouTube.  Which is HUGE for her.  She’s a YouTube junkie.

Pray for us, K!!
