Hi there everyone! I wanted to create a short and simple blog post for where to donate, send supplies, and seek shelter in Houston and surrounding areas. I pray that everyone stays safe and dry during this time! Feel free to follow my twitter @NatashaONeal_ because I am on it constantly posting new shelters and rescue numbers if needed!
Here’s a full list on where to get shelter in your area:

I hope everyone stays safe during this time and always let me know if you need anything! If you’re safe and have any boats or canoes please go around your area and safely try to rescue people if you can. Please check on your neighbors! Also, If you’re able to please volunteer your time and give blood when the weather clears.
Lastly, I know someone who lost absolutely everything during Hurricane Harvey. She is an author of a children’s book, and if you’d like to support her and purchase a book I’ll leave the link below!

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 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!
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.
I originally was going to do one huge post about where to eat, and what to wear for Valentine’s, but this is such a fun post that I had to do it separately. I always come up with a reason to have fun or to celebrate something so even if you’re not dating go out with your friends! All of these items are under $100, and you can wear the items after Valentine’s too!
Black dress | Blue dress | Off the shoulder rose dress | Off the shoulder red dress | Pink dress
Rhinestone flats | Red heels | Black heels | Pink heels | Black wrap flats
Tassel earrings | Pink drop earrings | Pink Rhinestone earrings
I love the blue embroidered off the shoulder dress. It’s not only perfect for valentines but for spring! My favorite out of these shoes is the black heels, just because it’s similar to the Valentino heels that are over $900! Most of these items are trending, but to me, they won’t ever go out of style.
Stay tuned for my ‘Where to eat’ for valentines coming soon!
