Recent Purchases

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.

Ballin’ on a budget | Pt. 2

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!

4th of July: Food & Ootd

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❤️

5 ways to de-stress 

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!

  1. Grab some fuzzy socks, a cup of your favorite tea and watch your favorite YouTuber.
  2. 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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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!

Camo and Gold

Happy Friday! I’m loving this camo trend and this shirt is the softest one ever from Francesca’s for only $28! I will link cheaper versions of everything below as well.



I know y’all love affordable products so from now on I’ll try to find outfits and designer items for less! I’ve been wanting one of these gold layered necklaces for months now but dropping $40 at baublebar (all though I know their products are great) I just couldn’t. I got this necklace from The Styled Collection and they give $$ back to animals! The gold hoops are from Francesca’s as well so I’ll link them or similar ones below. These Vigoss jeans can be more than other jeans but they last forever and are super comfortable and worth it. I bought my Tory Burch bag from @shopkateyscloset on Instagram for half price! I highly suggest seeing if your favorite bloggers/YouTubers have a postmark or Instagram page where they sell their designer items or go to fashionfile or any resale authentic website to buy designer bags for a cheaper price. Like I said in my Ballin’ on a Budget post these black heels are under $40 and they’re designer! This lipstick is one of my holy grail products because it dries on and literally stays on all dang day!


1.Exact shirt // Cheaper version of the shirt
2.Similar jeans // Cheaper version of jeans

3.Exact hoops

4.Exact necklace // Cheaper version of necklace

5.Exact shoes // Cheaper version of shoes

6. Exact bag is no longer Available // Similar & cheaper bag version

7. Exact lipstick

10 Drugstore Products You Should Try

Happy Monday Y’all! I ran a poll on Twitter about what type of blog posts Y’all like the most and beauty/skincare and affordable stuff were the top picks- so I’ll be doing more of those! I feel like the thing everyone deals with is the cost of skincare/beauty products being high for something that’s not too great. I’m showing Y’all my favorite items from the drugstore (Target, Ulta, Walmart, etc.).

The Biore nose strips are so good! Daniel has oily skin so he uses these and it works so well- not really on my skin because I don’t have as many black heads but if you do and you have oily skin I’d recommend these. You can get them Here.

The Wet and Wild liquid eyeliner is good if you want to find a great drugstore liner. I personally like the felt tip liners but this one is black, easy to use and doesn’t run. You can get it Here.

I gave into all the YouTube hype and got the Butter Bronzer and Y’all… it smells like coconut and just a summer smell! It isn’t super dark to where you overload it but it is build able and literally feels like butter in the pan and on your face. You can get it Here.

I got really curious one day to try drug store moisturizer so this E.L.F one caught my eye. Not going to lie I was kinda scared cuz I hear drug store moisturizers can feel greasy on your skin but I put a few drops of the Herbal E Oil from Ginamarie Products and it was such a good/cheap moisturizer! I wouldn’t say it’s my holy grail but it’s good for the price and it didn’t break my face out. You can get the E.L.F moisturizer Here and the Ginamarie oil Here but make sure when you’re checking out you put the name ‘Natasha’ in the spot where it asks “How did you hear about us?” To get $$ off your next purchase!

I love these Burts Bees cucumber face wipes! I like the Neutrogena ones too but Burts Bees are one of my forever favorite brands- I even love their chapstick because not a lot works for my skin. You can get them Here.

This Oh My Gloss from Rimmel really surprised me. I’m usually not a fan of glosses because they’re sticky and don’t really hydrate. This one is light, not sticky, and hydrates my lips! You can get it Here.

I love a good face scrub and I love finding an affordable one! Everyone says such great things about Mario Badescu so this face scrub would be perfect to exfoliate and get any dead skin off and smooth out your skin.. plus it smells like strawberries! You can get it Here.

I remember trying this Double Extend mascara for the first time back in junior high (cringe worthy makeup) but I forgot how much I loved it! I’m a strong believer in priming your eyelashes then applying mascara so you get 2 for 1 price with this! You can get it Here.

I know a lot of people are starting to use micellar water to take off makeup- not that I have anything against it but why not use witch hazel? It tones your face and has healing properties for if your skin is in the middle of a breakdown or if you have any skin issues. I’ve loved using this for many years and I swear by it to heal any breakouts! You can get it Here.

Lastly, one of my favorite drug store finds ever is this E.L.F perfect HD finish powder. I kid you not this stuff makes your foundation and makeup stay in place all day and it doesn’t have a cake look at all! I did love my Laura Mercier translucent powder, but the price wasn’t my favorite since I go through it so fast. You can get the E.L.F powder Here

I hope Y’all try out these products! Let me know if you have any favorite drug store products I should try!
