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!

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!

Skincare routine with Ginamarie

I recently teamed up with Ginamarie products to test their skincare and makeup products to share with y’all! I’ve been using their skincare products for over a week now and my skin has been so soft and healthy. I suffer with dry and sensitive skin, so trying new skin products usually scares me (unless my sister gives me the ok) because she is an esthetician. However, these Ginamarie products are so gentle and simple! I love it all. One of my favorite products is the Herbal E Oil, which oils can be bad or good due to them clogging up pores but this one is so good.

If you’re a mask person then you’ll love the Marine Mint Mask. If you go here and search for the ‘Mini Skincare Kit’ you’ll get a nice sample of everything before you fully commit to the full-size products! You can read all of my tips and tricks about their products here as well. Just click on ‘Natasha’s Beauty Tips & Tricks’ on the page to read!

I hope y’all enjoy this review of Ginamarie! I post for them every month so always go back to that link.

Fragrance with a Cause

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.

Blush and white tones | Giveaway details

Happy Good Friday to those of y’all celebrating! I don’t know about y’all, but this week has been too crazy. I’m starting to get antsy because Daniel and I are flying out to visit his family next week! Plus I’ll be cooking for my family this Sunday, so I just feel like a chicken with my head cut off haha.

Let’s talk about this adorable blush top! I got it from Francesca’s during their buy one get one 60% off last week along with another one I’ll post about soon. The only downside I have about the shirt is that it wrinkles soo easy! Other than that it’s the cutest top that is perfect if you’re wanting to dress up a pair of jeans. These white jeans are from vigoss that I got during the yearly Nordstrom sale, and I love them! Sadly, I can’t find this exact color of my bag but I will link it in different colors below! Y’all.. these gold sandals are $17!! They’re my go to slides for errands because the gold doesn’t make me feel like a complete bum.

Shop the outfit:

Similar top // Similar jeans // Sandals // Similar sunglasses // Bag // Earrings

Now for the giveaway details! It will start the 19th of April and will last for about a week! Also, I will be giving away some beauty products! Make sure you’re following my Instagram to keep updated. @Natasha0x_

Save or splurge | Pt. 4

I know this is kinda late since this is the March Save or splurge, but I promise I’ll be on time haha. I’ve had so many blog post ideas and this month is busy! I’ve decided to do blog posts Mondays and Fridays from now on just because I’d love to make y’alls Mondays brighter and Fridays happy!

Now let’s get to the fun part! I’ve seen these straw beach bags on every blogger’s Instagram, but not everyone has hundreds to spend on a beach bag. I found this similar one at SheIn and it still has adorable Pom poms! I’ve also seen this blue ruffled top on everyone, but I believe if you can get something like a shirt cheaper than the expensive version then you should do it! These black Valentino sandals are super cute but definitely a splurge if you want the real ones, but I found a similar (cheaper) version! The gold sandals are around $80, and even though they have a texture on the straps, you can get similar ones for under $20 (which I have). Some of  y’all know I’m obsessed with Jessie James Decker, and she has an amazing clothing line Here, but some of her items have cheaper dupes. This black lace top from Jessie’s clothing line has a dupe for $19! Although, I must say her clothing quality is one of the best I’ve seen and is worth the price because it’s still affordable. I’ve talked about these Chloe sunglasses (that I’m obsessed with) in a previous post about how they’re $376, well I’ve found a pair that’s under $50! Not ashamed to say I bought them for my upcoming trip this month!

 Lastly, one shirt that I’ve loved for months is the eyelash and lips shirt from Nordstrom, but $50 for a  simple graphic t-shirt just makes me go “eh”.  I’ve recently created a fundraiser so that I can go to an eyelash certification class this summer, and I’m selling the cheaper version of these shirts! They come in different styles and colors and guess what?! They’re under $24! What a steal, and you’ll be helping me achieve my dreams! You can get them Here!




1. // 2. // 3. // 4. // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. // 11. // 12. // 13. // 14.

I don’t think I’ve ever told y’all how the links work, but all you have to do is click the number that I linked that matches the item number and it sends you straight to that website and item if you wanted to buy it! If you end up buying a shirt (#13) with the link provided just know that I greatly appreciate you! There’s a little story about why I’m selling those shirts on the link!
I hope y’all have a great Monday and week!
