Skin Care Routine

Hello Everyone!
I thought I would list the products I have been using in my skin care routine. Some of these I have been using for a few years and some I have only used for two months, but I do think they all help in keeping my skin clear and moisturized.


Face wash: Aveeno 
I have been using this face wash for about a year and a half. I think I have discovered that more simple products that don’t have harsh and really strong acne chemicals in them are better for my skin. I use to use a face wash that would burn my face and never saw improvements.

Exfoliator: Aveeno
I have learned the importance of exfoliating your face at least once a week. I tend to get dry skin on my forehead so I know I need to exfoliate there.

Eye Makeup Remover: Simple Cleansing Micellar Water
This is the only makeup remover I use. I just put some on a cotton round and it takes my eye makeup off so well. I have tried other micellar waters and they leave an oily residue which I don’t like.

Mositurizer: Olay I have just started using this moisturizer but I heard good things about it and it has sunscreen in it and that is always a plus!

Eye Cream: Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream
This eye cream helps depuff my eyes and helps me look more awake in the morning. It smells like oranges and is nice and fresh.

Facial Spray: Mario Badescue. I also use this over my makeup but it can be used on a clean face as well. I sometimes have red cheeks and I feel like the aloe, cucumber, and green tea in the spray helps calm that.

What’s Happening Wednesday

What I’m Watching: I have been obsessed with “You” on Netflix! It is creepy but so good! I have also restarted watching Friends. I saw Aquaman last week and I loved it!

What I’m Listening to: I have discovered Billie Eilsish. I may be late to the band wagon, but her voice is so different. My favorite song of hers so far is Watch.

What I’m Reading: I have been reading “Turtles All the Way Down” by John Green. I’m a little over half way through it. I think it’s an okay story, but not too into it.

What’s on My To Do List: During the holidays my room got pretty cluttered, so the first thing on my to do list is to clean and sort out my room. I keep procrastinating it.

What I’m Eating: I have been eating a lot of junk such as donuts and Eggos. I hope to start eating healthier soon, but I also don’t want food to expire and to waste them.

Who I Have been Spending Time With: I have been spending some time with my dad as we both got sick. He has it worse than me so I took him to the doctor and made sure he took medicine and drank Gatorade. I have also been spending time with my kitty, Poppy. I went away for about a week and I missed her so much! I have been spending extra time with her and spoiling her more than I already do. 🙂

What shows or movies have you been watching? Let me know in the comments what you have been up to.

What’s Happening Wednesday

Hello All! I have been busy with the holiday season and wanted to include what I have been up to in an easy way. Here is my “What’s Happening Wednesday” post for December!

What I’m Watching: I have been watching cheesy Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel. With tradition, I also have to watch some classics such as Rudolph, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, and Elf! 🙂

What I’m Listening To: With the Holiday season comes Christmas music. My favorite Christmas song is “Last Christmas” by Wham!.

What I’m Eating: Every year my family and I choose a weekend in December and bake all sorts of treats that we can give to friends and neighbors. I’ve been snacking on the treats as well. I have also been enjoying vanilla chai tea.

To Do List: Of course my to do list is full of gifts to buy for my family. I always feel like I’m almost done and then I realize I need another gift here and there. It feels like a never-ending list sometimes.

Spending Time With: My brother and his family are going to be moving to the same town as me which is only a twenty-minute move. He has already transferred his son to his new school which means they spend a bit more time at my house while they wait for him to get out of school. I enjoy getting to see my brother, his wife and their other son who is almost six months old!

So these are the things I have been doing this month. It’s been busy but I love this time of year. What have you all been up to? What is your favorite holiday treat and holiday movie? Leave it down in the comments.

November Favorites

Hello everyone! November went by so fast and I can’t believe Christmas is coming up. I have a handful of makeup favorites that I wanted to share. Some are new purchases and some are things I found to use in a new way. 

CoverGirl Eyebrow Pencil

I usually just use a powder for my eyebrows but then I heard about the CoverGirl brow pencil and decided to give it a try. It definitely helps define my brows and fills in any sparse places I have.

Urban Decay Naked Pallet

I have heard so much about the first Naked palette over the years but could never bring myself to buy it. Then when I heard it was being discontinued and saw that it was on sale on Ulta, I had to get it. I can’t believe how easy the shadows are to blend and they are so pigmented. This is 100% my favorite eye shadow palette at the moment.

Urban Decay Lip Gloss in Fuel

I think this gloss is the perfect shade on my lips. It is very close to my lip color but it enhances it. After wearing it for an hour or two it does get a bit sticky but it isn’t too bad.

Victoria’s Secret Spray in Bare Vanilla

I love vanilla scented things and this one is no different. Their mists can be a bit pricey but if you wait for sales I think they are worth it for the amount you get.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

I have had this spray for a while and I used to only spray it on my clean face before putting on moisturizer. Then I saw someone say they put it in their fridge and spray it on after applying their makeup as a setting spray. I read the back of the bottle and it does say it could be a setting spray as well. I think it definitely helps the texture of my makeup and it gives my skin some good nutrients as well.

I am Thankful For…

Hello everyone! I meant to get this up sooner but as always the holidays create busy times. I thought I would make a list of 10 things I am grateful for in my life in the spirit of Thanksgiving. I always think it is important to take the time to reflect on the positive things you have in your life, especially when life gets overwhelming and busy. Focusing on the positive events in your life can bring you more happiness and much more.

Here are 10 things I am grateful for:

1.  My family and being able to be closer to them since I moved back.

2. Reconnecting with old friends. Since moving back to where I grew up, I have been reaching out to old friends and catching up with them.

3.  My education. I haven’t gotten a job since graduating college, but I do appreciate my opportunities and I love to learn.

4. Music. I have found many new artists that I love. Music helps me get out of my head and just have fun.

5. Playing card games with my parents. I love spending time with them. My parents are my best friends.

6. Audio Books. I have been listening to audio books more often because I just haven’t wanted to go to the library. Listening is also great for driving and road trips.

7. Thanksgiving food. I am grateful that my family is able to come together to help make all the tasty food we had.

8. Good health. I am grateful for my good health but also my families. People are getting older and it puts them at risk for a lot of things. This goes for the babies in my life too because they are also at risk for illnesses.

9. The holidays and celebrating them with my family. My boyfriend and I created new traditions but we can still celebrate with our families as well.

10. Rainy mornings. I love waking up to the sound of rain. It is so relaxing and I enjoy the thought of the earth being hydrated with the water.

November Journal

Hello Everyone! ♥
I wanted to show my journal layout for November. This month I kept it pretty simple with less color and I added doodles of plants. I think I mentioned in my last journal post that I use my journal as a space to be creative and doodle and then I also use it to track some of my habits. I sometimes add a section to write down my favorite moments from the month or I write journal entries in it. My journal is a space for me to let out my thoughts and ideas and to get creative. I enjoy having a theme every month. This month my theme is nature with doodles of acorns, different plants, and poppies. I have also added quotes about being thankful to go with Thanksgiving.




Thank you so much for reading and visiting my post!


What’s Happening Wednesday

What I’m Listening to: I’ve recently discovered the Hamilton soundtrack and have been obsessed. I have also been listening to Ruin My Life by Zara Larsson and 3 Nights by Dominic Fike. They are fun songs to dance to.

What I’m Watching: I am currently watching The Bold Type on Hulu. I think this show is fun and the characters are strong women figures. I also just saw Venom in the theater. It was more intense than I thought but it was really good!

What’s on my To Do list: I just moved so I am still in the process in changing my address on everything such as bills and what not. I always forget how much of a task this is when I move.

What I’m Eating: I went on a road trip to Seattle and became addicted to sunflower seeds. I only like the regular ones and I know it is so bad for me because of all the salt, but I can’t stop eating them! 🙂

Who I spent time with: I have spent more time with my family since moving closer to them. I love seeing my nieces and nephews growing and becoming such kind and smart people. I of course spent some quality time with my boyfriend on our road trip as well.

What have you guys been up to? Let me know what music or movies you have been listening to/watching .

Thank you for reading,


Seattle Trip

My boyfriend and I recently just moved and for some reason we thought it’d be fun to just drop everything and go on a road trip instead of unpacking and we were right, it was a lot of fun! 🙂

We decided to drive about five hours up to Seattle, WA and to visit some of their top attractions. We got a City-pass which bundles together their top things to do in the city at a discounted rate. We went to the Zoo, the Aquarium, the Chihuly glass museum and of course the Space Needle! The City-pass includes two visits to the top of the Needles. One during the day and one at night. We also went to the famous Gum Wall and the Pike Public Market where the first Starbucks is located at. We walked almost everywhere and really got a feel for the city. Thankfully our hotel was close to all the main attractions except the Zoo. We had a great time and I want to go back already! I have included some photos from our trip.

This was one of the many shots I got from the top of the Space Needle during the day. It was a bit cloudy but we could still see a lot.


We went back to the Needle at night. It was only a five-minute walk from our hotel. I loved getting shots of it from down below.


Here’s me trying to act calm on the glass floor I was standing on! They remodeled inside of the Space Needle and removed the restaurant. They replaced it with glass floors!


Post Alley is where the Gum Wall is. There was so much gum! There were so many awesome animals at the zoo. This lion was one of my favorites that we saw. Right next to the aquarium was this Ferris wheel. We didn’t go on it, but it was very cool.


Lastly, we went to the Pike Place Market. It was busy but it was so fun to see all the cute shops and restaurants.

I think we will visit Seattle again this next summer and also go into Canada. I can’t wait to go back!
