Favorite Nail Products

Hello! I hope everyone is or had a great Memorial weekend! Today I wanted to talk about what my favorite nail products were.

I’m sure y’all have heard me say countless times about how I have dry skin, so I love using this Herbal E Oil on my cuticles! I’m trying to ball on a budget so I don’t really get my nails done unless I have a special event to go to- so I’d like to call myself a nail polish connoisseur haha! Nothing drives me crazy more than chipping a nail right after painting them. I work with my hands so I’m constantly putting nail polishes to the test.

The drug store nail polish that I love is by Sally Hansen and it’s the Miracle GelI’ve purchased 2 different colors in that line that I love. They don’t chip and they last for days. Like I said I work with my hands so if you don’t then I’m sure they’ll last longer for you. When I say they last for days that means without any chipping. They retail for around $8.

One brand that I absolutely love (if you can find it) is Odeme. I bought this green color called Oz in the picture and it lasts so dang long! One thing I was guilty of was not applying a base coat so when I took the polish off it stained my nails yellow-which freaked me out at first! It is such a pigmented color and even 1 coat looks really good. I bought this from a local boutique called Beehive which I’ll link here. If you want to purchase this brand of polish online you can click here to go to their website. This polish retails for $12.

I had acrylic nails for years, so my nails became very thin. One thing that I don’t see a lot is biotin in womens’ daily vitamins so when I saw these 365 vitamins from Whole Foods have them I had to get them! I’ve always had to buy a separate bottle of vitamins to help grow strong nails so I’m happy I found these.


I hope this helps y’all with any nail polish or nail care questions! It’s always great to get your moneys worth from nail polishes that don’t chip and to take care of your nails with vitamins!

Skincare routine with Ginamarie

I recently teamed up with Ginamarie products to test their skincare and makeup products to share with y’all! I’ve been using their skincare products for over a week now and my skin has been so soft and healthy. I suffer with dry and sensitive skin, so trying new skin products usually scares me (unless my sister gives me the ok) because she is an esthetician. However, these Ginamarie products are so gentle and simple! I love it all. One of my favorite products is the Herbal E Oil, which oils can be bad or good due to them clogging up pores but this one is so good.

If you’re a mask person then you’ll love the Marine Mint Mask. If you go here and search for the ‘Mini Skincare Kit’ you’ll get a nice sample of everything before you fully commit to the full-size products! You can read all of my tips and tricks about their products here as well. Just click on ‘Natasha’s Beauty Tips & Tricks’ on the page to read!

I hope y’all enjoy this review of Ginamarie! I post for them every month so always go back to that link.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas 

Hey y’all! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve done a food post so I decided to share this easy dinner recipe! In no way is this an authentic Enchilada recipe, but it’s yummy and easy! 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 lbs chicken tenders
  • Shredded cheese of your liking 
  • Corn tortillas 
  • Green or red salsa 1 cup

First, I made sure to get any fat off the chicken. In a large pan pour half a cup of the salsa and add the chicken. Let the chicken cook in the pan with the salsa on both sides for 5 minutes on medium heat with the lid on. Once all the chicken is done cooking, shred it in a large bowl. When you’re done shredding, place a medium amount of chicken into tortillas then roll up and place into a medium deep baking dish. Repeat until the dish is filled. Then pour the desired amount of your salsa over the tortillas and then cover with cheese. Lastly, place in oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes until cheese is melted. Then enjoy! 


Pair this with some rice and beans and you’re set! The only time-consuming part is the shredding, the rest is easy. I hope y’all enjoy this and have a great weekend!

How to deal with negative people & things

Have you ever had someone tell you something completely rude? Have you ever had a rude coworker? I can raise my hands for both. Another thing is that when I see what awful things are happening in this world, I hurt. We’re allowed to get our feelings hurt from rude people, and we’re allowed to be sad from the world issues.

 But how do I stay positive??

Rude people:

Whenever people get sarcastic with me or just flat out rude, I take a second to breathe and try to understand why they’re acting this way toward me. Trust me that reaction of mine didn’t happen overnight. I had to work on being still during a moment like that. I work in retail, so when I have a customer give me attitude or just being rude I try to find out the issue and try my best to fix it. If you can’t help someone then you’ll have to know that it’s okay and you tried. You’re not responsible for people’s unhappiness so don’t take it personal.
One thing I was taught years ago was to not judge anyone or assume anything because you never know what their day/life is like. I take every opportunity (the best I can) to shine some light. Remember no one is perfect and even we have our bad days. I’m not going to lie, when there’s just no way that a person will be nice I just tell myself “This is God’s daughter/son and he loves them so I need to show some love no matter what.”

When bad things happen:

Yes, we all deserve to be sad or upset whenever something bad happens. I had a crappy day last week where I just got so tired of struggling and seeing other people struggle that I just wanted to cry. Instead, I took a few deep breaths and told myself it could be way worse and God will help me and us through this. I’m always blessed to have a healthy family, a roof over my head, and a job I love so things will be okay. When I see bad things happen around the world it hurts my heart and it makes me angry and sad. I think so many people make decisions based on what they want and what’s best for them that they just forget about everything and everyone else in the world. Y’all I honestly get sad when I hear that trash is in the sea and it’s bad for turtles. I wasn’t kidding when I said things make me sad. The only thing we can do is our best and that’s it. One person can’t change the world, but if everyone does the best they can the world will be fabulous!

Get to know me | 15 interesting facts about me 

Hey y’all! I wanted to do a 15 facts about me post so that y’all could get to know more about me and what I like! I already did an about me post, but I didn’t go into much detail. I hope y’all love this longer version!

1. When I first started driving I couldn’t wear shoes or jewelry, i felt like it distracted me!

2. I love art and science! If I could replace math with those 2 I’d be perfect in school. I’ve drawn and painted since I was a kid.

3. I suffer with ADD, but not as much as I use to. I’ve cut out a lot of sugar in my diet and it helped a ton.

4. I’d rather walk barefoot but since that’s socially unacceptable I always prefer sandals haha! But I do walk barefoot in my yard/house.

5. I hate having unpainted nails! I feel like they were made to have color on them haha. I also hate painting them myself because I’m a mess at it.

6. I’ve had this pillow case that’s a specific color and fabric since I was a child! When I need a new one I have to hunt that exact color and fabric down. I also hate when people lay on it haha! I know that sounds crazy.

7. I hate cleaning. If I clean I like to have a YouTube or song in the background or someone has to help cuz I get distracted or bored with it. If I ever clean on my own it’s cuz I have a huge burst of energy.

8. I have to sleep with a fan on and wear shorts to bed. No matter how cold it is!

9. When I go on down on escalators I have to go second if I’m with someone because I feel like I’ll fall down and when I’m going up I have to go first so I don’t feel like I’ll fall backwards.

10. I’m allergic to red apples. Specifically red (I know that’s weird) or any type of all natural juice. If I think about a juice cleanse- Can’t ever try it. My throat gets itchy and I start coughing or closes up until I take a Benadryl.

11. I hate taking pictures of myself (I know, who would think a blogger would hate pictures) but I’m never one to say “let’s take a selfie” or anything like that. But I do it for fun for the blog #doitfortheblog

12. I love listening to violin covers of songs.

13. I have never lived without a cat or dog.

14. I hate vanilla scented things, they make me nauseous.

15. I use to want to be a fashion designer. (I had a sketch book filled with drawings forever)

I hope y’all enjoyed these random facts about me! Make sure you’re following my YouTube channel Here for videos that are coming soon!
