Tips on Working Out While on Vacation

Yes yes, I know a true vacation means unlimited guilt-free meals and complete relaxation without working out. For those of you that have fitness goals you want to accomplish by a certain time, getting your workouts in while on a vacation is a must. I spent a week in Vegas recently and still made it a plan to get my workouts in. It was challenging but doable. Did I have cheat meals? YUP. I literally ate everything my heart desired, no regrets lol. It's all about balance right? I felt less guilty eating where cause I knew I still completed my workouts. Not gonna lie, I did miss one though. Tips ...

ROAR! Landon’s Four!

This is late but better late than never! I love doing birthday posts for my kids because it's always nice to look back and have them for memories :) This year he has been completely obsessed with dinosaurs and has even learned to say it pretty clearly this past month. It was only right to have a dinosaur themed birthday. It's funny that it's actually a common theme for 4 year olds, hence the "Roar! I'm Four!" theme that's seen everywhere lol. It's been such a special and growing year for Landon. He started school last August and he LOVED it. He got into a groove of being a little school ...

No wrinkles yet please!

I get this question a lot on IG... "what products do your recommend for anti-aging and wrinkle prevention?" It's crazy to think that I'm literally in the stage of worrying about wrinkles. I mean I still feel young?! But the slow appearance of fine lines and wrinkles reminds me that I am aging. I have nothing against wrinkles because I know they are inevitable but if there is a way I can prevent them or slow down the process, I definitely will. I have yet to get botox but I have considered it. Those are the products that I use to help prevent wrinkles: Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid ...

10 Shows To Binge Watch During the Quarantine

So I'm sure most of you have already seen some of these shows but for those that haven't... add them to your list to binge watch while you have more time at home! This is in no specific order btw :) All American (Netflix) - Leo and I watched the 2 seasons of this show in just a few days! O.M.G. Soooo good! I'm glad I didn't get into this show earlier when it was just shown on TV because I would've hated waiting a whole week to find out what happens next. Each episode is jam packed. I am pretty bummed that we now have to wait until Fall (maybe later) for Season 3. Gossip Girl ...

Let’s Talk Hair

Before I share my current fave hair products, let's talk about why I decided to chop my hair off! My husband did a great job btw right?! For more details on how it went though, here's my IG post about it. I have been itching for a new hairstyle for awhile and honestly have thought about getting a long bob. I've just been super hesitant because it's obvi a drastic move. What better time than to do that now though right? We are stuck at home so if the haircut went bad, I would just post throwback pictures and product shots until my hair grew lol. Luckily, I ended up loving it! Here are my ...

Two Bath Products I Didn’t Know I Needed

Happy #selfcareSunday! So I recently got a collab with a brand called Vitaclean and part of the collab is that they send me a shower head that has a Vitamin C cartridge. I really didn't know what it was about until I turned the water on and WOW, life changing. Not only does the shower head has luxurious water pressure like the showers at the bougie hotels but it releases a super light and fresh orange-y scent. It's amazing. On top of that, there are some great benefits as well, like making your hair and skin softer! Honestly, you need one of these in your life! The cartridges need to be ...

Reasons Why I Love My Apple Watch

So I recently just got the Series 5 Apple Watch this past Christmas as a present from my husband but I've had my previous one for 4 years. I had the Series 1 which was a present to myself that Christmas lol. Not gonna lie, it isn't a necessity but for me, it has become one. Reasons why I love my Apple Watch: You can ping your iPhone. I use this feature more than I'd like to admit haha. I ALWAYS misplace my phone and with a simple touch of a button on my watch, I can make my phone ring wherever it is. I'd get an Apple Watch for this reason alone. I use to hate having to get on my computer ...
