Hello everyone! I wanted to share some affordable fall items for your home and for your closet that you can wear the rest of the year! I’m one of those people who get a fall wreath/door sign that says “Welcome” with a pumpkin on September 1st haha!
I have always searched for a fall/winter hat but without a $150-200 price tag, so I was happy to find this tan one from Target! During the Nordstrom sale everyone got this leopard scarf- I know leopard anything will be very popular this season.
About the home items- I have always been curious about these Homesick candles if they really smelled like a state would… and this Texas one is amazinggg!! It smells just how you’d imagine Texas smelling but it’s also a great fall scent. One of my favorite items are the cookie cutters, because I love having family over to make them.
1. Gather pillow // 2. Leopard scarf // 3. Bear bangle // 4. Texas scent candle // 5. Friday night lights // 6. Flannel blanket // 7. Tan hat // 8. Mug // 9. Boots // 10. Cookie stamps
I hope everyone has a great week, don’t forget to check out my latest blog post about ways to donate towards Hurricane Harvey! Also be sure to subscribe to my YouTube for a new video coming this week- click Here to check it out!
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.
Tarte Clay Foundation // Ginamarie Foundation // Shape-tape concealer // Maracuja concealer // Maybelline concealer // Butter Bronzer // L’Oréal mascara // Jane Iredale powder // Butter gloss // Brow gel
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.

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❤️

- 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!
