Sephora Haul Review

I had just finished my "No Spend Month" and what better way to reward myself than doing a Sephora Haul. I came to Sephora looking for an eye cream, a new dry shampoo and a texture spray that would work in this Florida heat. I only added 2 unintended items AND one has become my favorite beauty item of all. My "No Spend Month" kept me in check as you can tell. I'll be sharing my positives and negatives for each product. For the most part, they're good, but some not "Holy Grail" good. 


A Unique Summer Watch

Ever since I became a stay at home mom, my spending habits have changed drastically. I don’t have that full time job to depend on, and every dollar spent in our household goes with a lot of thought. With that in mind, we cut down on eating out often, and especially on our spontaneous splurges at the mall. However, one thing we haven’t changed though is the quality in the items we purchase.

If there’s anything that has stuck with me from my days in luxury retail, is thinking about the price in terms of cost per use. If you don’t intend to use it for a long period of time, is the cost worth it? That’s what I always ask myself, and it definitely helps deter buyer’s remorse.  



When it comes to shopping for Grayson, I look for 3 things: Cute. Easy. Accessible. Babies need so many last minute outfits, we need to be able to drive somewhere on a whim and get what we need. With that said, my Top 5 Stores for Boys are all accessible and have a storefront for you to touch and feel. They also are priced fairly which we all know is important since babies go through clothes quickly. 


Trader Joes Shopping List

Trader Joe's is my go-to place for groceries. You just can’t beat the selection and the prices. I know Trader Joes can be daunting in the beginning to a lot of people, so I figured this list would be helpful. I too am that person who goes overboard trying everything to see what they like. Lets just say, I’ve tried pretty much everything they have to offer. So, this list is a compilation of items that are true favorites and always stocked in my house. 


Signs of a Toxic Friendship

After posting a few polls on Instagram out of curiosity, I was completely taken aback by the responses, but the one thing I have learned is, people are in our lives to shape us in one way or another. Here's my personal story, and take, on toxic friendships.
