Hello everyone! I know I haven’t been blogging much lately, but I am always active on my YouTube channel ( here ) or my Instagram where I always link my ootds! I wanted to share some of my favorite items as well as pieces that are simply at a great price!
Clothing: These Frye boots can be pricey, but if you want to invest in a good pair of leather boots for years to come I highly recommend them! Anything Olive is perfect for fall/winter and I’ve seen this vest all over Pinterest styled in numerous ways, so this is a great price for a staple piece! I see tons of bloggers have stacked gold bracelets but sometimes for 1 bracelet, it can be $20-$30! I think this is a great affordable set that you can wear all year round to add some sparkle to your outfits.
Beauty: Another item I’m in love with is the Patchology eyepatches, they really de-puff and wake me up in the morning! I take a while to fully wake up, so when I grab a cup of tea or coffee I put these on while I scroll through my phone and it’s like a mini spa to wake you up in a great mood! Since we’re on the topic of beauty, I highly recommend the loose setting powder I linked below! A little goes a long way for me since I’m not oily and I’m so happy it’s on sale. Lastly, the Smashbox lid primer isn’t something I’ve tried [yet] but I do plan on purchasing it due to always hearing people rave about it!
1. Frye boots/ Cheaper alternative
2. Olive Vest
3. Gold bracelets
4. Eye patches
5. Lid primer
6. Makeup powder
What I’m loving lately:
Lip Repair Tyler’s Laundry Soap Lavender Oil

My holy grail foundation is the Tarte Amazonian Clay because it’s full coverage, cruelty-free, and just feels good on your skin! I also love the Ginamarie foundation for a more weightless and lighter coverage. I’ve never tried the Shape Tape concealer from Tarte yet (gasp! I know) but I always loved their maracuja oil concealer! For drugstore, I usually get the E.L.F brand but I feel like for my skin type the formula is too dry. I’ve recently been using the Maybelline age rewind concealer and I love it! I’m always scared to try things that are drugstore and not cruelty-free because they usually make me break out, but this is good! Like I’ve said in my YouTube videos I absolutely love the butter bronzer! The best parts about it are the smell and how easy it is to build up if you want a dramatic bronze look. With mascara, I get scared to try non-cruelty free brands just because I find that they flake more and make my eyes irritated- but I saw one blogger love this primer/mascara duo and I wanted to give it a try since her lashes are gorgeous. For powder I use the Jane Iredale pressed powder in the lightest shade and it adds just a bit more coverage! I love it because it’s so natural looking and cruelty-free. I try to have most if not all of my skincare or makeup items be cruelty-free just because I’ve found out my skin reacts better to it over the years. It’s totally a personal choice! Now my favourite lip product for the past 2 months is the NYX butter gloss in tiramisu. I don’t know why it took me so long to try the butter glosses but now I can’t stop loving them! They’re hydrating and add great colour without it having that sticky feeling. My eyebrows are microbladded so I don’t use any eyebrow products other than a slightly tinted gel to keep the hair in place.

Thank you for reading!
I wanted to share my recent purchases with y’all! I did get all of these items on sale during the Nordstrom sale, and unfortunately, they are back to their full prices if you didn’t already snag them. I am going on a trip to Utah soon so most of these items were to have for the trip. I wish I could wear them now, but Houston is too hot still haha. If you couldn’t tell, I’m obsessed with any leopard/cheetah print! I went up half a size in the Topshop sneakers and I’m glad I did. My absolute favourite item from the sale is the oil diffuser! I’ve been looking at them forever and sometimes they can get very pricey so I believe I got it for $29! I use it every day. The most expensive item I got was the Frye Boots, I originally went in to try on the Tory Burch boots but decided they were a little too sleek-looking for my style so I went with these! Like I said, they’re pricey but I know I’ll get a ton of wears out of them.

Hello everyone! I know I haven’t been on here recently or any social media, but it’s been a crazy/rough month so far. I might not blog twice a week anymore, but I will try to do at least once a week! If I don’t post on here, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel Here because I’ll post once a week there.
Now to the good stuff! These Ballin’ on a Budget posts are my favorite to do, especially when I find designer dupes to share with y’all. It makes all the waiting worth it! My favorite items are the flat floral shoes and the leopard mules. Both of the name brand items are over $200, so I was a happy girl when I found both of them for under $100!
Black shirt: $13 option
Black earrings: Under $7 option
White shoes: $37 option
Leopard shoes: Under $60 option
I know it’s only 4 things, but I wanted to showcase items that are trending right now! I’ll be posting a Nordstrom Sale update soon if what I got- stay tuned!
I know the meaning of Independence Day, and I’m always grateful for those who have sacrificed their lives and given their service to this country. I’m sharing a photo of my grandfather in his navy suit to add my own personal touch❤️
I don’t eat red meat, so a better (and healthier) option to burgers and hot dogs is to make it a turkey version! I love the Jennie-O turkey hotdogs or their ground turkey if you want to make your own patties. They’re easy to grill, so I’m sure you’ll like them!
Every party needs sweets, so you can always make cupcakes or rice crispies with red and blue sprinkles! Simple pops of color in treats add a nice festive touch. Instead of making a mess try buying disposable cups, plates, and napkins that match the theme or just get red or blue.
Now for clothing, I made sure to pick items from stores you can go to over the weekend so it’s easier. I have the camo shirt and I love it- it’s so soft! My other favorite items are both of the rompers and you can wear them after the 4th.
1. Red top // 2. White shorts // 3. Blue ruffle dress // 4. Blue romper // 5. Red and white romper // 6. Camo shirt // 6. America shirt
Thanks for reading! I hope everyone has a great and safe 4th of July! Thank you to everyone who’s served❤️
