Adding To Cart for the Quarantine

So I'm going to keep this short so you have more time to shop lol. I meannnn since all the TP and clorox wipes are sold out, go buy other things right? ;) All of these things are giving me such #quarantinegoals vibes. My faves though are that bougie make-up vanity mirror, the smart garden and those paintable press on nails (major key cause we can't go to nail salons)! Seriously though, hope you guys are staying safe, healthy and most importantly... staying AT HOME! xoxo P.S. Here are some recent posts I did that are relating to the quarantine: tips on how to keep your sanity during the ...

What I’m Eating During the Quarantine

Women often ask me "what do you normally eat in a day?" I thought it would be helpful to share what I've been eating during this time of social distancing, spending 95% of every day indoors, and with grocery stores pretty much clearing out. I'm a more balanced diet type of person because I want eating habits to be more of a lifestyle rather than a quick crash diet. With that said, I eat mainly healthy, try to make healthier alternatives most of the time without depriving myself of the occasional treats here and there. Here's what I've been normally eating *on weekdays: BREAKFAST PART 1: ...

DIY Play Dough With Only 5 Ingredients

Being stuck at home, got me feeling all sorts of creative so I decided to let the kids make DIY play dough! Anytime we make something, food or crafts, I have a really bad habit of assuming we have everything we need to make it, S.M.H. Lol. So I get the kids all excited to make play dough and I start taking everything out only to realize I'm missing one ingredient for the DIY Play dough... cream of freakin' tar tar! Usually I'd run to the store or do a quick Target drive-up order but ya know sooo I figured there is no way I'm the only one in this predicament. I googled "DIY Playdough WITHOUT ...

St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for the Kiddos

It's Day 2 of "homeschool" and it's also St. Patty's Day! I had their school outfits for today planned out for weeks because I kind of take holidays seriously lol. Doesn't matter though, you already know I'm gonna have them wear it around the house today! Haha. If they were in school, they would've been making St. Patricks Day themed crafts so to celebrate, I'm going to have the kids make some throughout the day! I found simple ones that use things you probably already have around the house. Here's what we're making today: Leprechaun Hats - so simple and adorable! More details on ...

Tips To Help Keep Your Sanity During The COVID-19 Quarantine

I'm sure there a lot of mixed feelings about this whole COVID-19 ordeal but one thing we can probably agree on is that it's complete insanity! With all the craziness of my kids' school, dance studio and husband's work being closed plus the uncertainty of what's to come, it's easy to go insane! Not to mention, the kids will be cooped up inside the house like 95% of the day (I plan to take them on walks if the weather allows), things can get cray cray! Here some tips to help you keep your sanity during the COVID-19 Quarantine: Create a schedule that works for you and your family. I've seen ...

#BodyAfterBaby

It's been 2 1/2 years since my youngest Liam was born and I am still on a journey to get to my pre-baby body. I'm definitely get there thanks to consistency! Instead of crash dieting, I'm taking it slower and more consistent since I want it to be a lifestyle for me again. Summer is in a few months and I'm on a balanced diet and consistent workout schedule so I think I'll be bikini ready by then! I did however manage to get back into my normal jean sizes but I want to get to where I was pre-baby as far as muscle lean muscle. Btw, It's still so amazing to me what my body has been able to do, ...

My Favorite Hair Products

Like with skincare and beauty products, I have tried a TON of hair products throughout the years. My hair is naturally thin so I was always on the hunt for the best volumizing products out there and of course, the products that keep my hair shiny and healthy. I know that a lot of girls get extensions on their hair, not necessarily for length, but for volume too so maybe I'll try it some time! I did however try the halo extensions and loved it for awhile but I kinda just stopped using it. ANY WAY, sorry to bore you with my random hair facts haha. So if you are looking for amazing hair products, ...

DIY Pedicure Essentials

So we all know that I get my fingernails done but I never get a pedicure at the salon, they are completely DIY. Pedicures are just less maintenance and they can last like 3 weeks+ which is amazing. After doing my own pedis for so long, I came up with the necessary products you need for a diy pedi :) Let's be real, our feet do SO MUCH for us, you should take the time to give it some TLC. With that said, you need to try the Patchology Pedi Cure... it works wonders!! You keep it on your feet for like 20min and you'll see and feel instant results. Also, the Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover is ...
