The Best Candle Ever

I’m sure all of you know how obsessed I am with candles.

They’re a necessity, in my opinion, to every household.

Candles provide such a cozy home feeling, and this one here is one of my favorite candles ever. It’s the Peace and Tranquility Candle by Chesapeake Bay.

Typically I would buy them at Target, but they were SOLD OUT at three different locations! So alas, Amazon has saved the day!

I love this candle so much because of it’s delicate fragrance. With subtle hints of cashmere and jasmine, it leaves my living room smelling dreamy.

You know it’s the best because it’s sold out almost everywhere! To get your hands on this irresistible candle, click the link below to order.

February Beauty & Bath Favorites

All of my bath & beauty favorites from the month of february

Good morning lovelies! It’s been such a peaceful morning, another snowy day. Currently, Ava and I are cuddled up on the couch, surrounded by candles and listening to cozy music while watching the snowfall. I love mornings like these, when it’s so calm. There’s no rushing to get anywhere or any stress, just sitting back and remembering how sweet life is.  Continue reading “February Beauty & Bath Favorites”

Last Minute Gift Ideas for Him!

Valentine’s Day is literally just around the corner- but I guarantee I don’t need to tell you that, because if you are reading this, you’re probably sweating bullets thinking about good last minute gift ideas for the man in your life.

But don’t stress, I’m here to give you a few low budget ideas that your man will love. I wouldn’t worry about spending a lot of money on a present- it’s not about the money, it’s the thought that counts, and the right people will see that.

Here are my ideas:

  1. An actual Valentine – I actually did this for Kolani last year, and he loved it. It was super thoughtful, and I don’t think he expected me to put as much effort and time into it as I had. This is a super cute, simple idea for the casual couple. I roamed around the craft store in preparation and bought the necessities: scrapbook paper, glue sticks, sharpies, stickers, etc. I cut the paper into a heart and decorated the border with more tiny hearts. In the center of the heart, (I wrote in pencil first, in case of any mistakes), I wrote “Happy Valentine’s Day”. I then went over the writing with a nice thin sharpie. All in all, it was a beachy themed Valentine that he loved. It’s a perfect last minute idea and you won’t have to spend a lot of money!

  2. a Simple Accessory – Maybe your guy mentioned he needs a new wallet, or maybe he would like a new belt. Who knows, but remember the most important thing- men are simple. You won’t have to stress about a certain design or element, you can get him something incredibly plain and simple. I know that a tie or wallet is kind of cliche, but hell if that’s what he wants or needs then why not? I think it’s safe to say that Valentine’s Day mostly caters to women rather than men, so the fact that you would get him a gift would probably mean a lot more than you’d think. And honestly, I would consider looking around at Target (let’s face it, you’ll probably already be there, so why not get his gift, wrapping, and card all in one place?) Talk about efficiency. When Target recently underwent changes and added some new clothing lines, “Goodfellow & Co.” became the new men’s line. I got Kolani a new wallet from this brand and he loved the clean, simple design, with no logos. You can check out all the men’s accessories by clicking here.

3. Pinterest DIY Gifts – There are SO many cute ideas on Pinterest! All of these ideas are simple, affordable and undeniably charming. You can make things from love coupons to candy bouquets, to trips down memory lane. If you haven’t liked the previous suggestions, give Pinterest a try and check out all the cute DIY gifts!

4. Cooking Dinner – I think this one would be especially cute. Again, if you’re more of a casual couple and don’t have any set plans, this might be a good idea. Maybe you both have a favorite meal whether it be what you had on your first date or simply comfort food you both enjoy. You could take charge and cook dinner for him, or you two could team up and cook dinner together. I think if you guys cooked together it would be so romantic, and way more special than an expensive dinner in the city. You can rock out to music, have flirty food fights, and fall in love with each other all over again.

Whatever you decide to do, I’m sure you’ll have a happy and special Valentine’s Day. Just remember, that it’s not about creating a romantic extravaganza. Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love. Realizing how happy you two have made each other- that’s what you’re celebrating.

The Perfect Travel Makeup Bag

I’ve grown to be a very picky person when it comes to beauty or fashion items on my wishlist. I’ve been searching for a small makeup bag to fit in my purse for a while. I never found a design I liked, and I didn’t want to pay to more than 10$ for a travel bag.

When I went to Target recently, I stumbled across this adorable little bag! It’s the exact size I was looking for and it was only 5.99! I don’t like to carry a ton of makeup with me, but mostly touch up/emergency items, (chapstick, blot sheets, tampons, aleve, hair ties, etc.)

I couldn’t find this exact bag online, but it’s available in store. You can shop others like it by clicking here.

This is another one of my favorite winter beauty/style items! I’ve raved about Sally Hansen Miracle Gel before, and this is one of my absolute favorite time winter shades,   V-Amplified.

It’s a gorgeous deep purple color that honestly is so beautiful, I love the winter hues and deep darker colors.

Not only do the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish have great quality, but they’re also UNDER 10$! Click here to grab yours from Target.

My January Favorites

Holy Moley how in the world is January already over?! I hope 2018 doesn’t continue to fly by, cause I have some big plans for this upcoming year.

For today’s post, I’m going to be sharing with you a list of products that I have enjoyed this month. The products will vary from skincare, to beauty, to household items. So without further ado, let’s get right into it.

Skin Care: 

Neutrogena Deep Moisture Night Cream Okay, this has easily become one of my holy grail beauty products, it’s amazing! I started using this probably towards the end of December and I haven’t looked back. I was curious about night creams, as I feel like they were more of an old school beauty regimen. But this night cream works wonders, it has made my face so incredibly soft. I apply it once, in the evening before bed, all over my face and neck. What I really like about it is the fact that there’s no greasy feeling or heavy residue. I do love a lot of the Neutrogena products, I’m pretty sure that they were the first makeup brand I tried when I was first using beauty products. I would highly recommend this product, it has saved my skin during these dry winter months.

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser is one of those products I haven’t used in a while and decided to go back to. Let me just say that it was a very smart move on my part. I don’t like to switch up my facial cleansers too often since it’s bad for your skin, but I had to. I was trying out a Biore cleanser prior to Cetaphil and it turned out to be WAY too harsh on my skin. Cetaphil is a gentle daily facial cleanser that is most likely an underrated drugstore beauty find. I’ve never had really any bad cystic acne; I’ve had breakouts of course and Cetaphil does an amazing job at keeping my skin clear. This has become another staple item in my skin care routine that I do not plan on parting with anytime soon.

Pond’s Hydrating Dry Skin Cream I’ve been using Ponds moisturizer for YEARS now. I used to use an Olay moisturizer but decided to switch to Ponds, because I found that the Olay moisturizer was too greasy. I use Ponds every morning, after I wash my face with Cetaphil, I spread a little over my face and neck. I’m a big believer in moisturizer, especially this time of year. Ponds has been around forever and if I’m able to use a beauty product that my grandmother used, you bet I’m going to be getting my hands on it.

Beauty:

Burt’s Bees Lip Balm – A classic item. It seems there is a theme here of moisturizing products in this blog post, but then again it is winter. Chapped lips are another one of my pet peeves, as I imagine a lot of people could agree, it’s just such an unsettling feeling. I got Burt’s Bees because I love how natural their products are. I got a pack of 2, so I could keep one in my purse and one in my vanity in the bathroom. There’s no heavy residue with this lip balm either, so it’s reliable and moisturizes well.

Pet:

Urine Destroyer – So I was going to add a link to this spray I’ve used for Ava’s messes, but Target doesn’t have it available on their website. It’s by the Target house brand up & up, and it’s labeled as a stain + odor eliminator. It’s a great product, and I would highly recommend checking it out next time you’re at Target. I’ve attached the link of a similar product.

Books:

Shopgirl by Steve Martin – This was a birthday present gifted to me by my sister. I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. I found myself struggling to get into the book at first; I didn’t really have an emotional connection with any of the characters so I wasn’t that invested. But halfway through, I found myself more interested in the outcome of the book; there were a few plot twists that had occurred and I was interested in seeing how everything would turn out. It’s also acknowledged that many twenty somethings are not going through the same romantic struggles as Mirabelle, seeing as it’s a bit unusual. If you’re in between books I’d suggest reading this one, since it’s only 130 pages and actually left me thinking about the story and the characters once I finished the novella.

Movies:

Me Before You – Alright ladies, you better grab some tissues cause you’re destined to shed some tears with this flick pick. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t go out to the movies often, for a multitude of reasons (too pricey, loud people, the inability to pause for a bathroom break). It’s been on my list to see this movie just for kicks, and since I’m an Amazon Prime member, the movie is free to watch. To be honest, I really enjoy movies like this one. The story is set around two characters, Louisa Clark and Will Trainor. Louisa is that charming, quirky girl who everyone can’t help but love. Will is a thrill seeker turned bitter paraplegic after a horrific accident. Sure, the two characters seem far from similar but by the unwritten rules of the romantic comedy world, these two end up as star crossed lovers. It reminds me a lot of the movie If I Stay , another one of my absolute favorite movies. I think the plot of these movies remind the audience that you need to be grateful for what you have, because in a minute, everything can change.

Stardust – This movies is FANTASTIC. If you’re finding yourself stuck on the couch with your significant other unable to pick a movie to watch, then you’re in luck (this movie used to be included on Amazon Prime, but now it’s available on Netflix, so you’re welcome). This movie has everything to entertain both parties; romance, adventure, fantasy, action, and great humor. The story follows Tristan, a young man who wishes to cross a forbidden wall into a magical universe in order to find a shooting star that has fallen out of the sky, and bring it back to his love Victoria. He has one week to do so, and it’s safe to say Tristan wasn’t prepared for the adventure that awaited him..and neither are you.

Food:

3 Ingredient Crockpot Chicken Tacos! Yes, this month I’ve enjoyed this easy crockpot recipe so much! Definitely check it out if you haven’t yet, and be prepared for more yummy recipes coming soon.

House:

Zuede Silicone Sponges – I wrote about these earlier, but they are a very interesting product and wonderful to use. Click the link to read the full review and get a pair!

Technology:

Bragi The Headphone Review – It’s been a little over a month since I first got these, and they’ve been great. Click the link to read the full review and grab yours!

Samsung Chromebook – If you’re in need of a new laptop (bonus if you’re anti Apple products) then this might be the laptop for you. I got this laptop in early January and I’ve become obsessed with it. It’s small, sleek, light and fast. Good news is, it’s not going to break the bank either as it’s UNDER 200$! Better hurry though, there aren’t many left on Amazon. I’ll be posting a full review soon.

I hope you guys have all enjoyed my January favorites!
