Product love

Hello friends! Hope you all had a great weekend and a wonderful Valentine’s Day! We actually asked the boys what they wanted and they picked shake shack, and that was perfect! I love that place. So our valentines was a family night out. This month I wanted to stick to things I love! So to continue with that I wanted to share the products and items I’m loving right now. Most I’ve been using for a long time.

First is for sure skin care favorites! I finally have a skin regimen that I see my skin loves. I also think washing your face every night and using an spf is important. I’ve talked about summer Fridays before and I’m talking about them now! They just came out with a gel cleanser. I’ve always been more sensitive to face washes. So when I heard they were coming out with a gel cleanser,I had to have it. I’ve only been using it for a little over a week now. And my first impression is it’s not drying. The worst is when you use a face wash and your face feels instantly dry. Not this one, it cleanses really well and so far so good. My absolute favorite is the pumpkin over time mask. This I use about 2 times a week. I’ve been using the cc me serum as well and I like it, haven’t seen much of a difference in my dark spots beside them not getting darker. I have noticed my pores are less noticeable which is a plus! I do love the jet lag mask, it became my night cream and under eye cream and it’s great! If you have all of these I promise your skin will love you.

Accessories! I love some Accessories, at the moment I’m all about a gold loop. And I actually love the packs from H&M,they are so fun and they don’t hurt my ears. I’m also loving headbands right now, but I don’t like when they are tight and uncomfortable, the ones from HM are so cute, inexpensive and they don’t hurt. Check them out!

Vitamins!! I’m about to turn 41 soon and I started taking a multi vitamin. I’m loving these and the hubby even takes the one for men! Check them out!

Lastly would be my favorite nail polish that I take every time I get a pedicure. I normally just get white on my toes, I know kinda boring but it just looks good with everything! This one is my absolute favorite and last a long time. During winter I can get away with a pedi once a month. Try it!

So that’s it, my product love post! Let me know if you’ve tried any. Hope you liked this post, till next time!

Valentine’s pop of pink

Valentine’s pop of pink

Happy Wednesday my friends! Hope you all are having a wonderful week. I’m doing well, we had a nice family getaway to Big Bear this past weekend. Really no snow, but we got lucky on the day we left. It snowed very lightly so Breaker got to see that for the first time. He thought the snow at Disneyland was real so him seeing real snow made my heart smile.

Talking about hearts! Who is ready for Valentine’s Day?! Do you make a big day of it, do you keep it casual, fancy or is it a stay in cozy kinda night? We wanted to go out since it’s on a Friday, but we are kinda pooped from big bear and getting back to weekday life. So we are leaving plans in the air. I’m cool with ordering in with a drink or two. But getting dressed up is so fun!

Talking dressing up, if you have plans set in stone! Do you have your outfit picked? Well if not I’ve put together some INSPO for you! I love a pop of pink for Valentine’s Day! Most go with red, which is beautiful. But pink is so girly!  You can even mix both and that looks so chic! If I was going out I’d wear some leather faux pants, a bodysuit and with a pop of pink on my feet! Edgy with a little girly twist! But check out what I found and hopefully you can get some INSPO for your sweetheart night! Hope you all have a beautiful Valentine’s Day! Till next post!

My sweet boy is 16

My sweet boy is 16

Hello friends Happy February! The month of love! Who all still goes out for Valentine’s Day? I haven’t in years but I think me and the hubby are going to this year, so cool it is on a Friday.

Today’s post since it’s the month of love, I thought how fitting is it to dedicate my first post to my first born. He is the reason my heart grew bigger.

My David, he just had his 16th birthday. Imagine 16 years as a mom, I remember the day I went into labor with him. He was my little big guy, a whole 6lbs 11oz but long, I knew he was going to be big, he had the biggest hands and his feet were too big for his newborn pajama. I had to always cut the bottoms. He was my gentle giant. And now he’s 16 a young man that has this beautiful heart. He’s so caring and loving with everyone. I know he has a bright future. But this year he will hopefully get his license and maybe get a summer job, lol! No but really He has his written text very soon. It’s crazy!

I’m so proud of him. And I can’t wait to see him grow more as a person. He has brought so much joy to my heart for 16 years. So Happy sweet 16 my baby.

Moms out there that might be worried about having a second baby because you feel you can’t love anyone as much as you do your first, don’t be scared. Your heart is capable of amazing things. You love them just as much and your heart grows fonder every year they grow. The heart is an amazing thing and gets bigger with the more people we allow in.

Till next post!

No rules to Goals

No rules to Goals

Hello my friends!! Ok so I’ve kept my theme of January devoted to the new year and goals. This is my last post for January so I wanted to end it on a simple note.

Do not spend your year beating yourself up on trying to get through all the goals. I honestly don’t think goals have to take over your life. Life is way too short for you to stress over a goal you made for yourself. Enjoy life that’s important. A simple goal doesn’t mean less than a big goal. Who’s to say your simple goal isn’t a big deal to you. Don’t let anyone make you feel like your goals are not big enough. 

Goals are great to have they keep you in line. But don’t feel discouraged because others are hitting their goals and you aren’t. You are on your own path, don’t worry what path others are on. You make your path on your own. So no rush and just remember to enjoy everyday. We are absolutely never promised the next.

So like I said before, no goal is too small, and don’t ever feel a goal is too big. You have the ability to make it happen. With that you have 336 days as of today to work on what you have to work on. Don’t follow someone else’s goals. Focus on you and what makes you happy.

My number one goal is family, spend more time with them, make more memories and just enjoy the time we have with them. And day 29 of that I’m on the right path. Let’s all cheer each other on. Till next post.

Starting 2020 right

Starting 2020 right

Hello my friends! Ok so I’m using January as a stepping stone into the new year! So why not share my steps with you! I don’t like to start off so crazy like giving myself all these rules and goals! Like for real it’s just torture to yourself! I like to start off with manageable goals! And once I start to see myself achieving these manageable goals, I add more! It’s less disappointing at the end.

So something I can already check off my list and let me tell you it’s the most important, is making our dr appointments and dental appointments. Health is the most important in my book! I made sure to schedule all appts so I know we are set and healthy! Some of us will put these off and let me tell you, if you have yearly goals that’s great! But nothing is more important than health. If you are not healthy, how are you going to accomplish anything? So make those appointments!

Dentist! Most of us hate them lol! Well not hate just scared of them. But oral care is just as important as physical. So get it over with and book those dental appointments! Believe me I have a huge phobia with the dentist but hell it feels good to get those choppers cleaned! So book your appointment!

Thats it! Getting those done for my family take a lot of stress off me in the beginning of the year! So we can proceed with our own individual goals and just be happy! Till next post!

My winter coat picks!

My winter coat picks!

Hello my friends! Happy new year! Hope you all had a great holiday with family and friends. But I’m going to say it, I’m glad they are over! I need some structure in my life! This always happens the month of December, it just throws me off! So I’m ready for a routine and some creative work!

Today I just wanted to share some cute jackets that will make a simple outfit look cute! And of course they are all from Zara and all on sale, so hurry up and jump on it! I love when Zara has a sale! I normally buy a cute jacket or some shoes. Even if the season is almost over. I’ll be set for the next winter/summer etc. I try to get the more basic ones that won’t go out of style!

So I rounded up my faves that honestly should be staples in your closet. I wish I can buy them all. But I settled for the green faux fur one with a hood! I just loved it and I’ll wear this all winter, Spring and even 2020 fall! So I will definitely get my money’s worth! Hope you all found some help with this post, and if you haven’t checked out the Zara sale! You need to Stat!

Till next post!

Hello 2020

Hello 2020

Like crazy! I can’t believe we are in 2020! This is where you start to see all the new year new me,blah blah blah. I’d like to see it as a fresh year to be a better you. A clean 365 days to live life like you ,but try to add some more positive to your life. Try to push yourself to step out of the box a little. But don’t beat yourself up if you’re not ready for certain changes right away. Like I said you have 365 days!

For me I plan to give myself a few goals. I’m so over the lose weight crap! I’ve learned to just be healthy ,stay healthy, but live life and don’t deprive! I’ve found a way to stay active and I do want to eat healthier. That’s a goal but not just for weight loss, more for health reasons. I plan on staying healthy inside and out! Enough of that!

My real goals are to be more in the moment, I started that last year and I plan on getting better. Make small changes around my house, I’ve really liked the minimalist life. I’m all about living with what I need, not just to have. I’m teaching the boys this too! I think starting these habits early is great! Trying to spend more quality time with family. Life is so short I don’t want to regret not spending the time when I have it! Of course continuing my blog is a must. But I don’t care about numbers anymore. That was killing me! Giving me anxiety. I choose to be me and create from my heart! I don’t care about my numbers. If I can influence one person in a positive way that’s my reward. So overall my 2020 is just being a better me! Taking time for myself and enjoying everyday! So to a new year! Cheers to you all!
