Holiday Beauty Wishlist

Does anyone else feel the Holiday pressure creeping up? Because I do!  We are two days away from November 1st, y’all! Can you even believe that?

With the Holidays around the corner, it’s time to start dreaming up our wish lists, so when your friends and family say, “What do you want for Christmas?” You’re not stuck saying “I don’t know”. This happens to me every year. So this year I’m going to be ready with my Holiday Beauty Wishlist, with images and direct links to the products. This will make it easier for them, and take the  guess-work out  of searching for the gifts on my list.


1. ELIZABETH AND JAMES NIRVANA WHITE  PERFUME On a recent trip to Sephora, I smelled this perfume and fell in love. This perfume is designed to work with the Black Elizabeth and James Perfume, to create a new scent when mixed. However, I prefer just the white.

 2. SEPHORA COLLECTION PRESTIGE LUXE BRUSH SET I love Sephora brushes. They are an investment, but you makeup will thank you!

3. SEPHORA COLLECTION GOLD STAR DUAL BRUSH SET  I believe a woman needs a good boar brush – especially during the Winter. It will give your hair the most gorgeous shine… ever!

4. DOLCE & GABBANA LIGHT BLUE This is my all time favorite perfume. I will always have one on hand.

5. TRIA HAIR ROMOVAL LASER This a dream gift, that I know I will probably never get, unless I spoil myself… we‘ll see!

6. FRESH BROWN SUGAR BODY SCRUB I rely on body scrubs during the winter to keep my skin polished and looking radiant. This Fresh body scrub is great for that and it smells delish!

7. SEPHORA COLLECTION PAPER MASK COLLECTION During the winter, our skin changes and we need to put good nutrients back into it. These masks looked fun and they will get bring your skin back to life!

8. BOBBIE BROWN NUDE ON NUDE PALETTE Oh, how I love a neutral eye palette. This Bobbie Brown nude palette offers a wide range of shadow for many looks and it will look great on any skin tone. I’m in love!

DIY Metallic Striped Lucite Tray

DIY Lucite Tray

I’ve had my eye on these fancy Lucite trays for a while now, but they are so expensive.  I mean,  I can’t justify spending $80-$200 on  an acrylic tray. However, while I was browsing the isles of Hobby Lobby, I stumbled upon these clear acrylic frames. A light bulb went off  in my head and I thought, ” I can make a DIY Lucite Tray”.

The frame was originally $6.99. However, I had a 40% off coupon. After the coupon I payed around $4 for the frame. I continued to browse the isles, This gold metallic striping tape caught my eye.  At first, I wanted to make a monogrammed tray, but I couldn’t find the perfect font for the letter to create the monogram. When I saw the metallic striped tape,  I knew that I wanted to create a design with it, but I had no clue what I was going to design.

On the way home, I started brainstorming ideas on the design. I still couldn’t think about what I wanted to do, so I  sat down and just started playing with different angles, stripes, and shapes.  And I came up with the geometrically angled design that I love.  Let me show you how I created this design.

Acrylic Picture Frame


First, take your frame out of the plastic, then wipe down with a lint free cloth and rubbing alcohol. This will make sure your frame is clean and free of any dust particles that might prevent your tape from sticking to the frame. If you are creating this same design, you will start by placing your art tape about an inch and a half from the center of the frame.

Placing your stripes about a half inch apart, continue to place the strips diagonally until you reach the corner of the frame.

Next, you will have to cut your next strip into a point to place in the corner of your frame.Metallic Stping tape DIY

Starting at the opposite side of the frame, place the point in the corner of the frame, and connect it to the other tape.  Repeat the same on both corners until you’re done.Metallic Striped Lucite tray

How amazing is this DIY? I love it!

Lucite Trays are a great organization piece for storing office supplies, jewelry, sunglasses or anything else that needs a place. It’s so simple, yet it adds a decorative aspect to storage. Not to mention I feel better spending less than $10 on a tray!

DIY Pumpkin Spice Coffee




“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Pure Via®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #PureViaSweet

Diy pumpkin Spice Latte

If there is one thing I must have everyday… It’s coffee.  I’m a huge coffee drinker and I can’t start my day without it,  I’m just not productive until I’ve had my first cup. I know I’m not alone in this, so Today I’m going to share my DIY Pumpkin Spice Coffee!

I like treating myself to a fancy coffee shop coffee every once in a while, but most of the time I like to make them at home.  One reason, I like to make it at home is because I can control the ingredients.  I believe that you can get the same taste without the insane amounts of sugar. Recently, I’ve been using the Pure Via Stevia in my morning coffee and I love it! I can’t find the difference in taste, but I know I’m not getting all the calories. Win!

Last week I  headed to my local Walmart to pick up the Pure Via 40 count Packets, along with a few other ingredients to create this yummy coffee.   For someone who is conscious of their sugar intake, these packets make it easy to use at home as well as on the go! I love throwing a few in my purse for when I’m out and a natural sugar alternative isn’t available.

In order to make this DIY Pumpkin Spice Coffee, you’re going to first start with a simple and easy Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup.  Traditionally, you would make this with sugar. However, since I’m a fan of stevia, I’m using Pure Via. It’s a natural alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners, not only is it natural, but it tastes delicious, too!

Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup

Skinny pumpkin spice syrup2

After your DIY Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup is done, start by brewing a fresh cup of coffee, pour  your simple syrup into your coffee. At this point you can add a splash of milk, creamer, or whatever you prefer. I skipped the creamer all together. I added low-fat whipped topping to the top of my coffee, added a some pumpkin pie spice to the top for some added flavor… And just to be fancy!!!

This DIY Pumpkin Spice Coffee is so delicious. The pumpkin syrup adds just the right amount of pumpkin flavor without being too overpowering, and the whipped topping add that touch of cream to your drink. This recipe is so simple and guilt free.

If you haven’t already tried the Pure Via 40ct Packets, I would highly recommend you give them a try. Pure Via is a great natural, non-gmo, zero calorie alternative to sugar. If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can print off a . 55 coupon (while supplies last) and give them a try.

Oh, and what’s better than a natural sugar alternative? Oh, I would say FREE music might be better. You can also take advantage of a FREE song download and a cookbook from Jewel.

I also love to make an Iced Coffee version, too! After your coffee cools, pour your coffee over ice,  add the Simple Pumpkin Syrup, add your creamer of choice and follow up with the whipped topping and pumpkin pie spice!

Listerine Oral Care Routine that changed our family habits


“I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf ofInfluence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”Listerine 2

A few weeks ago, I wrote about Choosing Healthy Oral Care habits for my family. Over the last couple of weeks we have added a few Listerine products into our oral care routine and implemented a daily routine and things have been great!

My Oral Care Progress

As I stated in the last post, I’m a great brusher, but when it comes to flossing – I struggle.  It’s something that I always found to be too time consuming. However,  I found that by using the Listerine  products in my daily routine, it made the process a lot easier and quicker. I loved the Listerine UltraClean Access Flossers that the kids were using. I actually went out and purchased two more with the refills because they are so convenient.  The LISTERINE UltraClean Access Flossers will be a permanent part of our oral care routine. 

In addition to the Listerine UltraClean Access Flossers, I’ve introduced the LISTERINE Healthy White Gentle Anticavity Mouthwash into my routine.  This mouthwash is great for people who like mouthwashes without the strong taste. It’s a sodium fluoride anti-cavity mouth rinse, that’s peroxide free, and it gently whitens without irritation.

For fresh breath throughout the day I’ve been using the LISTERINE POCKETPAKS Breath Strips in Cool Mint.  I love these because you can take them on-the-go and have fresh breath for hours after using just one strip.

The Kids Oral Care Progress

Since putting this new oral care routine in place, I have found that my kids are more excited about their nightly routine. I created an Oral Care Checklist to help keep them accountable to their routine as well as keep them on track.  I created the checklist and it is hung in their bathroom, right next to the sink.  I made it a point to hang it right next to their oral care products to make sure they see it and mark things off as they complete them.

The girls have used the LISTERINE Smart Rinse Anticavity Floride Rinse and the LISTERINE UltraClean Access Flossers. The girls love the taste of the Listerine Smart Rinse Anticavity Floride Rinse after they brush their teeth. The bottle allows the kids to squeeze it and then it dispenses the proper amount for their little mouths in a compartment in the neck of the bottle. That’s pretty genius if you ask me! There is no worry about them using too much or not enough, or accidentally spilling the whole bottle. The LISTERINE UltraClean Access Flossers have been super convenient for them, and they love it. The long handle allows them to get to the back of their teeth without sticking their whole hand in their mouth. This has made it so easy for them, so getting them to floss is no longer a battle I have to fight.
