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❤️

Favorite Nail Products

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 GelI’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!

Christmas Spirit

I’m proud to say that I’ve finished my Christmas shopping! This is the first year that I didn’t know what to get for most of the people on my list, but that just makes the gifts so much better! I know Christmas seems like it’s all about presents and spending money but I just love the spirit it brings. Things like people getting a little bit nicer, you get to see family, and have fun! This year I may or may not be attempting to make tamales for my first time but I love challenges!

I put a few festive and inexpensive items together to show your Christmas spirit! Forever21 has a lot of cute Christmas sweaters that are under $30. Although I do love hitting up a thrift store and finding vintage Christmas sweaters! I can’t even say how many times I’ve had hot chocolate, but I promise it tastes better in a Christmas mug! Plus a mug for under $5 is a deal. Anyone who knows me will tell you that no matter what my age is I will rock a onesie, and I’m loving this tree one from H&M! I need this cat sweater. I love black cats and own one so I need to represent lol. I’m pretty sure y’all know bath and body works has great candles so I’ll end that there. Go stock up!
