9 Lingerie Pieces That Are Sure to Spice Up Your Valentines Day

Whether you are spending Valentines Day with that special someone or you are spending it alone, NOTHING can spice up your night like some red lace! If you are anything like me, spending an arm and a leg on some cheap outfit is not something I like to do. Last year I discovered the brand Mentionables while perusing Instagram. Not only are their pieces super cute ( and come in plus sizes), their mission is pretty dang awesome!

Emily Kelly, owner and co-founder of Mentionables, was standing in the mall outside of a lingerie store when she realized the need for affordable, quality, size inclusive lingerie. Thus, in 2017 Mentionables was launched.

Recently they launched a new Valentine’s Day line that is just SO perfect! So I gathered my favorite pieces for you that are sure to leave you feeling sexy, empowered and confident!

Drugstore makeup for babes on a budget

Beauty On A Budget

Lets be candid, I am a babe on a budget! I am living on a teachers salary, and there is NO WAY I can afford some of those high end beauty products. Contrary to others opinions, you can find quality drug store make up! You just need to do your research. Lucky for you, I have done the research for you! Its only because I love you so much :p

I scoured the internet, YouTube, blogs and Instagram for recommendations. I took my list and headed to Ulta. Now you can find most of these products at other retailers that sell drug store makeup, but Ulta is the only brick and mortar store that sells Colourpop products.

Here is what I found!

Frozen 2 Anna Palatte– $15
Lippie Stix – $6
Lite Stix – $8
L’Oreal Infallible Concealer– $13.49
NYX Powder (used as contour)
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara – $10.99
Pretty Fresh Primer – $12
A Flutter Palatte- Sold out but here is a similar one
Lippie Pencil – $6
Maybelline Fit Me Matte Foundation – $7.99
Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder– $7.99
Revlon Blush– $11.99
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Eyeliner – $9.99
Pretty Fresh Setting Spray – $12

Check out my YouTube video HERE to see my initial thoughts on the products!

So if you are like me, and balling on a budget, these products will have you looking BOSS, at a fraction of the cost!


January 2020 Favs

We are just a couple of weeks into the new year and that means everyone is getting started in their new year resolutions! One resolution I know a lot of people have is self care. While I think that it is important to remember that self-care is much more than cleaning your face, but it’s a start. So to help you get started I have rounded up my current favorite products! Some of these products are new finds, like the Youth To The People cleanser, and some are products I have been using for a while and have talked about before!

If there is a product you want to try click on the photo and it will redirect to Amazon, where you can purchase them. Yes, I do make a SMALL amount of money whenever you purchase a product using my links, but these are my HONEST favorites!

Body and Skin Care

The Youth to the People Kale + Green Tea Spinach cleanser is so gentle on skin. I have very sensitive skin on my face, coupled with eczema, and this cleanser has done wonders for my face. I had a friend even tell me that my skin was glowing!

ALMAY Makeup Remover

ACURE Soothing Cleansing Cream

Hair Care

This Dry Bar detangle spray and Aveda Damage Repair cream has done wonders for my postpartum hair. After I use these products my hair feels so soft, and it is so shiny!

Prep Rally Detangler Spray
Aveda Damage Remedy
HUM Hair Vitamins
Beach Babe Dry Shampoo
ACURE Argan and Pumpkin Shampoo and Conditioner


The Haven towel warmer is a it of splurge, but if you are a fan of bubble baths like me, having a warm towel waiting for you, is just the icing on the cake! I prefer the bucket over the warmer rack, because the whole towel gets warm in the bucket.

HAVEN Towel Warmer
Gryph and Ivyrose Chocolate Heart Probiotic
LuluLemon Dupe Leggings
Colourpop Bare Necessities Palette

I hope you all found something you want to try! If you do end up trying a product, let me know what you think. I would love to hear about your experiences!
