Hello, everyone! I hope everyone has a great start to their week and I hope it’s a happy and quick week! I’m not ever going to lie to yall and say I don’t get stressed because I do, so I came up with my 5 ways I de-stress to share with Y’all!
- Grab some fuzzy socks, a cup of your favorite tea and watch your favorite YouTuber.
- Take a warm shower. Grab your favorite body scrub and body wash! Then when you’re done, get your favorite smell good lotion and moisturize your skin. Nothing like smelling good to make you feel a bit better!
- Read a book! I love reading religious books or adventure books! Here’s one book that I just finished and man- it’s worth the read I promise you!
- Light a candle. I stock up when Bath and Body Works has their candle sales for this exact reason! I light a candle and read or watch videos- do something YOU like to do.
- Pamper yourself. Put on those fuzzy socks, wash your face & apply a mask and just relax! I Make all of my off days my spa day, self-care is very important!
Mint mask // Book // Candle // Aloe fuzzy socks // Lotion
*Make sure if you get the mint mask you put ‘Natasha‘ in the “Where did you hear about us?” Section at checkout for $$ off your next order!*
I hope all of these tips help anyone who needs to de-stress! Like I said, self-care is very important and it’s just as important to do stuff that you like to do when you’re off and have free time!
Here’s our latest YouTube video!

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??
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!

I’ve had people talk about how they don’t know what to do during hard times so I hope y’all enjoyed this post!
Happy end of the week y’all! I hope all of you who are in college are sticking out finals. I’m so excited to be done next week!
One thing I wanted to share was this gift guide for Mother’s Day! My mom loves to write everything down in her planner and has tons of notebooks so if your mom is busy like mine she’ll love these gift ideas! For busy moms and a relaxing night, here are my favorite items for mothers’.
Who wouldn’t want a mini spa night? These Voluspa candles, tea set, and skincare set are perfect for that! Plus to top it off this Fresh hydrating mask is one of my favorites.

This is the notebook I was talking about for the busy moms. If your mom is anything like mine, she’ll need these headphones. I always walk into my mom’s room and see her binge watching shows on Netflix; it’s hilarious because she’ll tell me how she’s already finished 6 different shows haha.

My mom is very simple, that’s why these mothers love earrings are perfect and not too flashy.
It’s always a great idea to get a sample set of perfumes! This DefineMe fragrance set is such a good price, plus they give back to girls’ education! Read more about them Here
Make your momma feel glam with these beautiful sunglasses and this Barrington tote that you can completely customize to your own style!

Hope you have a great weekend!
Happy Monday y’all! Can you believe it’s May already? I feel like this year is flying by.
Last weekend Daniel and I went to California to visit his family and it was amazing! We stayed around LA/Costa mesa and tried our best to vlog the trip! It’s no 5-star video buttttt we might start some videos here and there so stay tuned!
I’ll be listing the places we went below:
Here’s the link to watch our California video!
I was super excited to receive this DefineMe Fragrance set! One thing that is very important to me is cruelty-free products, and not only is this cruelty-free this company also gives back to girls’ education! Tell me that’s not awesome and empowering to hear. I love it when I see companies give back, I believe that’s what our purpose is. So enough about that and let’s start chatting about the fragrance!
I got the Opposites Attract set with the Payton and Clara scents. Payton is a smooth musky scent with hints of orange blossom to me- I literally smelled it and said “I smell like a grown woman now” haha! It’s more of a night time scent, and oddly enough I love it and I don’t usually like musky smells! Clara just reminds me of a floral bubble bath scent- but here’s the best part… Pair them together and it’s the absolute best smell ever! I feel like it really describes my personality in a fragrance.
Like I said in the beginning, every full sized bottle (or the 2 bottle sets like mine in the picture) that gets sold, DefineMe Fragrance gives $1 for scholarships for girls in low-income countries.
Hi there! I know I missed my post yesterday, but I’ll stay on track after this! Daniel and I just got back from California and we’re sad our vacation went by so fast. I’ll try to make a video about our trip (if my editing skills cooperate) haha.
I get told a lot that I have thick/long eyelashes, but I’ve always wanted them to be longer. One thing I’m guilty of is when I have a clump of mascara, I will pull it off my eyelash causing me to sometimes pull my lashes out. I know that sounds disgusting and it’s not good to do- so that’s why I decided to purchase NeuLash. I was going back and forth about if I should buy the NeuLash eyelash growth serum for months, and then I finally bit the bullet and did. It’s not cheap at all- just for .11 fl oz is $95! I know, my heart hurt too the first time I saw it… that’s why I saved up to test it for yall! I’m not gonna lie to yall, the directions say to apply it on every night on your eyelash line (same place you apply liquid eyeliner) but some nights I forgot because I was too tired to remember. I have before and current pictures of my eyelashes below without any mascara
To be completely honest, my lashes do look fuller but not longer. When I apply eyelash primer and mascara they do look long! I am happy with my results due to me telling you how sometimes I’d pull mine out from mascara clumping. Would I buy this again? Eh.. if I needed them to be fuller again definitely yes, for length it didn’t do too much. I do love my results though, but it’s still pretty expensive. This post is based on my 1-month long process of using it. You can purchase it here
I hope this helps you if you’re on the line of buying this!
