How many of you have used coconut oil? How many of you used it on your skin or hair? Coconut oil has been something I’ve found myself using a lot this year. Whether it’s for my hair or skin, I’ve loved using coconut oil. Coconut oil has so many great benefits when you use it on your hair, skin or teeth. Even when you use it for cooking. Which I haven’t tried that yet, hopefully soon. But I’m here to share with you great beauty uses for coconut oil. All of these I have tried and continue to do so because I love coconut oil. I love what it does.

Being a busy mom sometimes I don’t have time to go to the grocery store, especially with my boy’s baseball schedule. And when we don’t have the kids we’re always trying to figure out what we want to eat. Sometimes looking up meal ideas on Pinterest isn’t easy because you find something but that means you have to go out and get the ingredients. Let’s be honest here sometimes we’re too lazy to even do that and I hate having to result in having my local pizza place deliver our favorite pizza. And I LOVE to cook. Well, what if I told you that can easily change by having actual healthy and fresh meals delivered to your front door for you to cook at home.

This post is something I’ve been meaning to do because I’ve been asked numerous of times on how I cream contour. Cream contouring isn’t something many people can do because it’s tedious and you have to make sure you’re doing it right. Otherwise, you look like a hot mess. I will be honest with you, it took me a year to master down the cream contouring. It wasn’t something I was able to do for a while because I wasn’t blending correctly. In today’s post, I’m going to show you how I cream contour by sharing with you a tutorial. I will explain each step of my process when it comes to cream contouring.
I self-tan! It’s true. I love to do it because I personally don’t like to be out in the sun for so long because I get extremely dark so quick (not that there’s anything wrong with that) BUT I also don’t like the feeling of being sweaty. Last summer I went out to the waterpark with my family and I got so dark so quick that I still have tan lines from last year. But I do love having that summer glow all year round. Because of that, I’m going to let you know how I prep my skin for self-tanners. I know that some people aren’t sure how to prep their skin for self-tanners or they don’t do these steps in order to make sure their self-tanners last. I have to express how important it is to make sure that you do these steps.
How many of you heard of Mellow Cosmetics? If you haven’t well, let me tell you all about this brand. I was recently sent a few products from the brand to try out and all I’m going to say are GOOD things about their products because I was SO impressed by their products and the quality of it as well. Mellow Cosmetics is based off in New Zealand. They are a cruelty-free, vegan and paraben free brand.
Can we just talk about how cute this off the shoulder top is? Off the shoulder, tops are seriously my favorite tops to wear in the summer. I’ve always been told I have great shoulders. So I love to show off my shoulders a lot in the summer. I’m also all about flowy tops because I’m not that top of person who loves to wear tight shirts. I always feel uncomfortable when the tops feel tight against my body. This top is seriously perfect if you’re someone who loves flowy comfortable tops.

I know that I’m talking a lot about dry skin and the only reason it’s because I have been finding great products to use to help me with my dry skin. And if you come to my blog for skin care or beauty tips, that’s what I want. I want you to be able to find anything I share on here beneficial to you! Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer has been a godsend since I received these from Curél.
It’s pretty obvious that the only way I do my hair is either straight or in curls and 8/10 times it’s curled. The only reason why I only curl my hair is because I don’t have the patience to do anything else with it. I always get asked if I use a curling wand or my flat iron to curl my hair, and to be honest I use my flat iron because it’s easier to straighten any short baby hairs I have or my roots. Today I’m going to share my favorite brand that I love to use when I curl my hair it’s the “ghd platinum® tropic sky styler”.

I want to share with you some Spring beauty products to use right now. Lately these products I have been using and been loving. These products are great for the warm weather, so you’re not feeling like your products are caked onto your skin. Like I’ve mentioned before, I don’t like to wear much makeup in the spring/summer if the temp is going over 70 degrees. Nobody has time for all that.
Shop Tobi is seriously becoming one of my favorite brands. They have the cutest clothes for women. I’m a huge fan of their tops and dresses. Although this Emily Shop Tobi Criss Cross Plunging Top is quite revealing in the front, doesn’t mean you can’t wear it with a cute lace tank top or plain tank. I went ahead and paired it with this white tank top since I was wearing white jeans and tan wedges.
Mother’s Day is nearly approaching and I’m definitely excited to be celebrating this day with my boys, Brian, and my family. We usually go out to dinner or grill out. Normally when it comes to special holidays like this I like to dress up very cute and this Shop PinkBlush dress is definitely the perfect Mother’s Day outfit. If you’re unfamiliar with Shop PinkBlush, they have beautiful clothes for moms or soon to be moms.
I’ve never been to France but it’s definitely on my bucket list. But planning a vacation to another country can be quite expensive. So why not bring France to your home. Today I’m talking how you can host a wine tasting party at home with French wine, butter, and cheese. No need to spend tons of dollars to do this. I’ve never done a wine tasting before and I was definitely excited to do this when I received these French wines. I had my best friends and my parents over to help me taste the wines.
Sweet Talk Me Cream Floral Dress One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to know the people I follow. I’m sure you’re the same way when it comes to who you follow. I wanted to do a Q&A and have you guys ask me the questions. I posted this on Instagram last week and I got so many questions that I had to break this post into 2 parts. You guys asked so many great questions.
