Hello fellow readers! Welcome back to the blog. I hope you all are doing well and having a great day. For today’s post I thought it would be really fun to do a summer favorite post. I don’t think I’ve ever done one before so this should be pretty interesting. Grab a comfy chair and let’s get started.
The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Serum
I recently bought the Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum from Ulta and it has worked so well for me. I’ve only used it for about 3 weeks and it helps my blemishes heal so fast. I try to use it twice daily but I just mostly use it once because I either forget or don’t feel like doing my whole skincare routine 😉 The best part of serum is the price. You can get the 30 ml bottle for $5.90 USD and the 60 ml bottle for $10.60 USD
The Ordinary Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA
Another great product by the ordinary is their Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA. This moisturizer really helps my skin after I use the Niacinamide serum. The Niacinamide serum is more on the drying side to help with sebum, blemishes, and congestion so this definitely helps balance my skin from drying out.
CeraVe Foaming Cleanser Normal to Oily Skin
The CeraVe Foaming Cleanser Normal to Oily Skin is probably the best cleanser I’ve tried so far. It takes off all the oil and dirt but it’s not harsh on my skin. It is also fragrance free which is a plus because sometimes the fragrances in skincare can smell absolutely disgusting. You can buy this product at stores like Walmart, Target, Ulta etc.
Target 6pk Washcloth Set
I actually got these in the mint color but I’m absolutely loving these washcloths. They are so cute and they do their job pretty well. I would say that these washcloths are pretty average so you don’t have to go out and especially buy these. There are many other options around that might even be softer too.
Champagne Toast Gentle Foaming Hand Soap
The champagne toast is one of my favorite scents at bath and body works. I absolutely love the scent so I was very excited when I was able to grab this soap. I got mine for about $5 excluding tax but I used the 4 for $20 deal.
I have been loving my pair of paperbag shorts. They are not only perfect for summer but they are so comfortable. They also have pockets which are very handy for storing your phone or anything you may need to carry.
Thank you all so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed reading this post. If you have any blog post suggestions don’t hesitate to drop them in the comments 🙂 Have a wonderful rest of your day or night.

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are doing well and having a great day so far. For this week’s post, I decided to share inexpensive ways to spruce up your bathroom. My bathroom has recently been spruced up so I thought it would be a great opportunity to share some tips that will hopefully help you spruce up your bathroom. Grab your favorite snack or beverage and let’s get started.
I know how hard it is to spruce up your bathroom on a budget. You always have such great finds but you check out the price and your like “no thanks”. Hopefully some of these tips below can help you spruce up your bathroom or give you some inspiration.
1. Clean Your Bathroom
Cleaning your bathroom may sound like a joke but when you clean your bathroom you can see the beauty of it. If you want to take it a step further you can use dollar store bins to organize your toiletries. For me, it makes all the difference to walk into a clean organized bathroom.
2. Upgrade the Lighting
Many of us depend on the bathroom lighting to get ready every morning which is why if you have dull lights it might be time to change them. According to costowl.com, “For new bathroom lights, expect to pay anywhere from $30 to $40 for a single sconce to $400 to $500 or more for a multi-light fixture (although $50 to $200per light is a more reasonable estimate). Customized fixtures made from gold and other high-end materials could cost $1,000+” Depending on what kind of lights you get it could be very inexpensive.
3. Change the Decor
Changing the decor can be a very inexpensive option and can give your bathroom a whole new look and feel. I personally like to shop for decor at places like Tj Maxx or Michael’s but you can pretty much find decor anywhere.
4. Make the Shower Bigger Using a Curved Curtain Rod
This is one of the tips I actually used myself. If you have a relatively small shower like me then using a curved curtain rod can help make your shower feel bigger and give you a little more space. You can also get curved curtain rods for as low as $13 which is awesome.
5. Fill Your Bathroom With Plants
If you have a super plain bathroom then plants are the way to go. Plants give Je ne sais quoi which is like the sprinkles to your cupcake. They make it seem not as plain or boring. I got my plants for $3-$7 from Michael’s but you can also get them from the dollar general if you can’t find them anywhere else.
Thank you all so much for reading! I hope to see you in the next post.
Hey everyone! Good morning and welcome to another blog post about my life. Today we are going to get a little more personal than usual. It has been quite awhile since my last blog post and I decided to share why it has been so long. I also have a very exciting thing to discuss so keep reading to find out about it. As usual let’s get started ⬇
Over the past 4 weeks, my weeks just keep getting busier and busier as I head into summer vacation. I have just been planning and planning for various and sundry things and trying to get ready for my next adventure. I will admit although I love to plan, it has been a bit stressful for me. I will still try my best to create content for you all. I can’t promise to stick to my regular schedule so I might skip a week if I’m too busy.
Although this may be a little disappointing, I should be back to a more regular schedule during the summer time as I have plenty of time to create content on the blog. Who knows I might even start a series of some sort. Whatever happens to this blog in the future, I want you all to know how grateful I am to be able to create content for this blog. I appreciate all the kind comments you all have given me and I look forward to this blog’s future 🙂
Now I will share the “Very Exciting Thing.” If you couldn’t tell, I have revamped my blog into a more “boho” theme. I am really into the boho\minimalist feel so I was very happy with the results. I love the terracotta color so it fit into my theme perfectly. I am still in the process of creating a new logo so be sure to look out for that. I may or may not do a post on that showcasing it.
I hope you all enjoyed reading my posts again 🙂 I definitely missed blogging on here. Hope you have a great week and see you next time!
Hello everyone! I am so glad to be back on this blog. I would like to thank you all for understanding my absence last week. I feel much more refreshed and motivated to created more content. In this week’s post I decided to share what my Sunday’s are like. Let’s get on with it ➡
Disclaimer: Not all my Sunday’s are like this 🙂
1. Wake Up
Generally I wake up somewhere between 7:00 and 8:00 A.M but this morning I woke up at 7:54 A.M. I watched a movie before bed so I wasn’t able to go to sleep right away.
I ate a donut when I woke up because I was so hungry but aside from that I had French toast which was so delicious, vegetarian sausages, and some potatoes.
Thanks mom for cooking delicious breakfasts 🙂
3. Social Time
After breakfast I played with my dogs for a few hours and chatted with my friends and family.
Now I am working on this post that you are currently reading. If you make it to the end tell me how I did. I am always up for tips to improving my blog content 🙂
What’s a Sunday without tv? I pretty much watch TV every Sunday due to boredom and lots of freetime.
I divulge the last meal of the day. Today I had leftovers and a bit of junk food.
I pretty much finished the day off with a bit more tv and then I went to sleep.
Thank you so much for joining me through my day. I enjoyed sharing what I do pretty much every Sunday.
Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day yesterday. I know I enjoyed relaxing on the couch all day haha. Since I did a school morning routine which you can check out here. I thought it’d be fun to give you a sneak peak into what a typical night is like for me. Let’s get this show on the road.
After dinner, I usually sit on the couch for a few minutes and then I help clean up dinner. It takes about 15 minutes depending on if we have a big mess to clean up.
During this time I sometimes blog if I feel really motivated but mostly I am so exhausted from school I plop down on the couch and watch tv shows.
Recently I have been doing workouts from this app called Fiton. It has so many workouts that you can choose from and it’s free. Most of the workouts I’ve tried don’t need any heavy gym equipment so that can be very convenient for some of you.
P.S. I promise you this post is not sponsored 🙂
I normally take a shower at this time because I don’t have time in the morning and I’m just a night-time shower type of person.
Since I’m already in the bathroom, I like to brush my teeth and clean my face while I’m drying off. It saves me time and I don’t have to make another trip to the bathroom.
This is my wind down time. I like to shut my phone off so I don’t get disturbed and I like to do some stretches before bed. I hardly ever read but very very rarely I do some light reading.
I’m sure many of you are very confused as to why I go to bed so early but since I wake up at 6:00 every morning, I have to go to bed early so I can function and be able to do my schoolwork.
