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!

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!

Hello everyone! I’m starting a new blog post series called Ballin’ on a budget which means I’ll show y’all how to find designer items at affordable prices, and items that are trending/in style without breaking the bank! Sadly I won’t be doing any “save or splurge” posts but this will be very similar!
1. Tory Burch // 2. White shorts // 3. Denim skirt // 4. Off the shoulder top // 5. Oversized cardigan // 6. Layered necklace // 7. Nude espadrille sandals // 8. Saddle bag // 9. Monogram necklace // 10. Black heels
I’m in love with everything in the photos! I’m a lace up shoe fanatic so both of these designer shoes are right up my ally plus they’re great prices! Especially for Marc Fisher. I don’t know if y’all know this about me, but I love wearing sweaters and nice cardigans all year around (I know that makes me sound crazy in Houston) but I can’t help it. This oversized cardigan is definitely on my wish list. These gold layered necklaces are so in style right now so why not get one without breaking the bank? To top everything off this Tory Burch pink pouch is super cute and it’s a great price. I love finding designer items that don’t make you feel guilty for spending a lot…That’s what ballin’ on a budget is all about!
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 Gel! I’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!

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!
