Aesthetic Amazon Home Finds

Hi Guys! Today I’m sharing all my favorite aesthetically pleasing items from Amazon that will upgrade your home quick!

Checkered Throw Blanket – How adorable is this neutral checkered blanket? It reminds me of the barefoot dreams blanket, but it’s much more affordable. It comes in 8 colors & 2 different size options.

Leather Tissue Box Cover – cold & flu season is on it’s way & this will be a must.

Olive Oil Dispensers – set of 2 glass oil dispensers – these also come with silver if that’s more your vibe. Also comes with labels!

Ziplock Bag Organizer – functional & cute way to organize your drawers. They also have this Foil & Plastic Wrap dispenser.

Can Shaped Glasses – these have been so popular the last year & it’s easy to see why with how cute they are. I love things like this that help me to be intentional & romanticize my life!

Stackable Glass Containers – 5 pieces kitchen canister organizers – love that these are airtight.

Glass Spice Jars – these match the kitchen canisters perfectly & are also airtight. These even come with the labels + 2 wood spoons.

Microfiber Cleaning Towel – I cannot with these checkered cleaning cloths! These are great for wiping down anything stainless steel, glass & even work great in your car. I cannot handle dust on my dashboard & these are perfect because you can use them dry. There is nothing that bothers me more than the oily dash wipes they hand out at the car wash.

Salt & Pepper Grinder – not only are these adorable they also have amazing reviews.

Cuisinart Knife Set – 15 piece white knife set. Functional & cute enough to display on your counter if you want to. 4.7 out of 5 stars and over 16k reviews!

Checkered Wood Cutting Board – this will be perfect with the holiday’s coming up for charcuterie boards but it would even make a great gift idea!

Candle Warmer Lamp – I love how elevated this candle warmer looks with a marble base! Candle warmers make your candles last longer, they prevent the tunneling that can happen when they burn from the wick & this one even has a dimmer so you can control it. Major upgrade from the plastic little black discs everyone used to have.

Spiral Candlesticks – I’ve seen these everywhere recently – over the past year we’ve had a ton of different shaped candles popping up & I’m here for these!

Glass Match Cloche – I love how high end this looks with the smokey glass. It’s also practical so you don’t have to run around the house looking for the lighter all the time.

Cotton Waffle Blanket – I’m sure you’ve seen similar blankets on instagram, but I love the look of this waffle blanket at the bottom of the bed! It just started snowing this week here in Utah & layering your bed so you don’t freeze is a must now. Come in quite a few colors & all 3 bed sizes + a throw size.

Turkish Cotton Bath Sheets – If there’s 1 thing you buy from this list, let it be this. Once you use a bath sheet you’ll NEVER go back to anything else. These bath sheets are the luxuries I want in life.

*One tip I have before shopping the sale if you tend to shop online like me. They don’t always have everything I need/want in my local store so I order online, but I like to go in store to scope out things I may want to try & I shade match what I can.

MAKE-UP

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Smoothing Foundation – I’m trying to decide which foundation to try so I thought I would share both. This is a best seller on Sephora’s website & I’ve heard a lot of celebrity makeup artists use this product. I think I’m leaning slightly more towards this one because it’s cheaper & has amazing reviews for oily skin.

Armani Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Flawless Oil-Free Foundation – This is the other foundation I’m considering. It has a cult-like following & is known for a glowy natural finish. I’ve been wanting to try this foundation for awhile & I don’t know if it’s new or I just didn’t notice before but they have a smaller bottle to test that’s $45 instead of the almost $70!

Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer and Daytime Eye Cream – The title alone is enough to make me want to try it, but it seems like this concealer has taken the world by storm. I’ve been using shape tape for awhile but I’ve noticed recently with the weather changing it’s looking super dry. I’m so excited to try this out!

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder – this powder feels AMAZING, it has the most beautiful soft finish. This is a great powder for the holidays and all the parties coming up to make your makeup last.

Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer – This bronzer is my ride or die. The powder is soft & blends seamlessly!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade – the first product that made me love brows! This pomade will last for a long time because a little bit goes a long way! I love how well it shapes & how it stays in place alllll day. I use this product with the #12 brush.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – another one of my ride or dies! I cannot live without this to set my face. The finish just takes your makeup to the next level.

Charlotte Tilbury Transfer-Proof Setting Spray – Another must have for the holidays to make your makeup last! It’s the best selling setting spray on their website & I’ve been hunting for one!

SKINCARE

Pharmacy 2% BHA Pore Cleaning Toner – This toner is on my list because my skin is definitely on the oily side & has been absolutely freaking out with the season changes.

belief The True Cream Aqua Bomb – I love this moisturizer as a daily/morning moisturizer & The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb as a night cream! They both make your face feel amazing & supple & hydrated!

Summer Fridays Lip Butter Balm – Someone shared this recently & I had to go in store to see if I liked the shade & scent – both are fab. They have a few scents/shades but the one I’m grabbing is brown sugar. The shade is very sheer, but such a vibe for fall.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask – My sister got me hooked on this ‘mask’. I put mask in parenthesis because to me it feels like a lux night cream. I don’t wipe this product off I leave it on overnight – you can wipe it off if you want but it absorbs into the skin & makes your face feel amazing & supple.

HAIR

Ouai Detox Shampoo – I’ve heard so many good things about this detox shampoo! & it smells incredible! A few things to note if you’re wanting to try it – it’s not a daily use type of shampoo or even every shower. I plan to use this every other week to get rid of oil buildup.

Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo – If you’re familiar with Amika it has their classic scent – if you’re not it’s one of my favorite scents out there. This dry shampoo works great for both blondes & brunettes! My favorite part is that it doesn’t leave product build up behind.

Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray – I’ve heard a ton of hype around this product it’s supposed to be a high shine, anti-frizz, anti-humidity product that lasts for 3-4 shampoos. I don’t see where it’s advertised as this but I’ve heard it almost makes your hair waterproof which would be great for all my fitness girls who’s hair curls up after a gym sesh.

dpHUE Gloss + Semi-permanent Hair Color & Deep Conditioner – I saw another girl share this & I knew I had to try it! It’s a shine treatment + color/toning. I’m really hoping this product will make it so I can go longer between dyes, but if you’re a blondie I would probably stick with the sheer option that is just a deep conditioner/gloss treatment.

SETS

Rare Beauty Blush 3-Piece Set – I’ve been wanting to try these liquid blushes for awhile & this set is perfect for holiday gift giving too! Comes with 3 colors, 2 smaller & 1 full size.

Minis Lip Sleeping Mask – This lip mask is a staple for me & this set is perfect for splitting up for gifts or keeping for yourself!

Gisou Honey Infused Hydration Hair Set – I’ve heard amazing things about this brand & specifically the hair oil & hair mask. This set is such a great affordable way to try a few of their products out! It also comes with a leave in conditioner & a hair perfume.

Dae Monsoon Moisture Hair Set – I’m a sucker for aesthetic packaging – but I’ve heard great things about this brand & their signature scent is amazing & they have a set for that here. I’ve wanted to try it for awhile & this set is perfect because it has a shampoo, conditioner & hair mask.

Fall Amazon Round-Up

Cropped Vest – I saw these trending last year & they’re back this year. Would look so cute paired with the long sleeve matching set below.

Long Sleeved Matching Set – I got the tank top version this summer & I was surprised how often I grabbed for it. Such an easy outfit to grab & go. Fits TTS & has great tummy control.

Corset Tank – I’ve been obsessed with ANY type of corset top, they’re so flattering. Just ordered this brown color for fall to wear under shackets!

Leather Shorts – thee best summer/fall transition piece in my opinion. When it gets colder you can layer it with tights as well to prolong being able to wear them!

Chunky Platform Boots – I’m so happy these are back this year! I wore them way too much last year.

Long Shacket – Comes in so many cute colors, I went back & forth between the 2 pictured below. I went with the left one!

Leather Leggings – Everyone should have a good pair of leather leggings for fall/winter! Such a good price on these, most are $100+ so I had to order this pair too!

Blazer – comes in every color imaginable. I would pair it with the leather shorts & a bodysuit. 19k reviews!

Ruched Long Sleeve Off-The Shoulder Top – I love how this can be dressed up or down, would look SO cute with the leather shorts above, jeans or even a skirt!

Cut Out Knit Sweater – comes in so many cute colors. Would look adorable with leather pants, jeans or even a cute plaid skirt.

High Waisted Leggings – these Lulu dupes now come in multiple lengths options like the aligns which is crazy to me! They come in any color you could want, but I’ve had my eye on the java color at Lulu & these look identical!

Cut Out Long Sleeved Sweater Dress – if you have a wedding or event this fall this would be so cute! You could also dress it down with a pair of white sneakers!

Monthly Round-Up

Hi guys! Today I’m sharing all my current favorites & go-to’s this summer.

Clothing

Nike Dunk Low Black & White – I’ve had these on repeat all summer just like every other girl on IG!

White Chuck Taylor Platform Converse – obsessed with how cute these are, I would size down 1/2 size.

No show socks – These are the best no show socks! They stay on so well. They’ll work with sneakers like the ones above but they won’t work with vans or shoes that show the top of your foot.

Lulu Align Tank – My favorite workout top! So flattering & you don’t have to change after your workout if you don’t want to its just as cute to wear alllll day!

Quay High Key Mini – my favorite sunnies for YEARS!!

NY Yankees Hat – 47′ brand always makes the best fitting hats, I love this neutral hat to throw on when you have a dirty hair day.

Steve Madden Platform Sandal – by far the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. TTS

Lulu Scuba Hoodie – I’ve been obsessed with sweatshirts, but this one is great for summer because it’s cropped so you don’t get overheated.

Beauty

Hangover Pillow Balm Lip Balm – I cannot go longer than 2 hours without reapplying this. I have at least 12 at this point haha

Dime Wonderscreen SPF 30 – this sunscreen has 19% zinc in it, but still blends into the skin well. My favorite sunscreen this year by far! Don’t even get me started on the amazing packaging, I’m the biggest sucker when it comes to good packaging.

Sweet Honey Pineapple & Melon Hand Sanitizer – I took a piercing class earlier this year & they handed this out & it has been my favorite ever since! It has hemp oil to help moisturize too!

Gimme Beauty Hair Ties – the only hair ties I use now because they don’t kink your hair & its gentle.

Stoney Clover Small Pouch – travel essential I typically use this for all of my makeup items.

Stoney Clover Large Pouch – another travel essential this summer, I put all my skincare, hair care type products in this when I travel. It’s deceiving how much it can fit!

Bondi Sans Self Tanner – best self tanner for olive skin tones. Has a coconut smell to it, but honestly all self tanners have the same smell. I use this applicator mitt from amazon!

Bum Bum Hair & Body Mist – the best fresh summery smell

Too Faced Matte Bronzer – obsessed with the smooth formula + it’s matte finish is perfect for sweaty summer days

First Class Detox Dry Shampoo – I always have a harder time keeping my hair clean in the summer – this has absolutely saved my life. Smells amazing & no white cast after you brush it through for my dark haired girls ! Literally my life saver!

Tree Hut Tropic Glow Scrub – super similar smell to the original bum bum scent! Great to use to take off self tanner too.

Brazilian Body Butter – really close dupe to bum bum cream! Not quite exact but it’s pretty dang close + you get 2 6oz bottles for $24 vs $48 for 1 8oz bottle of bum bum!

Supplements

Mary Ruth’s Liquid Morning Vitamins – the only vitamins that don’t make me sick, take 2 TBS in the morning & you’re good to go! They actually taste pretty dang good too!

Liquid IV Watermelon – amazing for hot summer days when you NEED to be hydrated.

Monster 12 Pack – Watermelon & Paradise – can’t live without my monster!

My Favorite Pura Scents

Hi Guys! I ordered a pura device a few months ago & I’ve been testing a lot of their scents to find the best ones! Before I get to the good stuff I just want to point out one of the big reasons I love pura scents is because they’re all clean & safe for pets & people. I always used to use the bath & body works wall plug-ins but they get too strong, they start to make me feel sick & they don’t have clean ingredients. The pura lets you adjust the strength setting, you control it from you phone & you can set timers too which makes it so convenient. Now for the good part all my favorite scents! My top 2 scents have * by them!

Capri Blue Scents :

  • Coconut Santal – notes : vanilla, smoky tobacco, bergamot & sandalwood.
  • Volcano – notes : tropical citrus & sugary notes.
  • Havana Vanilla – notes : hibiscus, lime, coconut & hints of amber.
  • Pineapple Flower – sweet summer scent. notes : pineapple, plum, lemon flower & sugar cane.

Unify Co.

  • Summit – lemon & pineapple leaf, white florals, cedarwood, & moss. *

NEST New York

  • Grapefruit – notes : pink pomelo grapefruit, watery green lily, & coriander blossom.

Barr-Co.

Anthropologie

  • Ambered Topaz – notes : warm cardamom, lavender, cedar wood, sweet amber, dark patchouli, & a hint of pine needle.

High Protein Meals

Hi guys! Today I’m sharing some of the meals I’ve been eating to get ready for summer. I’ve broken them down as breakfast lunch & dinner, but I don’t always eat them that way sometimes I have 2 breakfasts (ex: breakfast tacos & a protein cereal + yogurt parfait for lunch). I haven’t been focusing on exact macros more just high protein. I try to keep lower carbs & fat, but I’m not being so strict that I have no energy & I have a hard time recovering from workouts. I think it’s so important to listen to your body because I’ve found that’s the ONLY way anything is maintainable. I am not super restrictive with certain things normally as long as I’ve got my protein in for the day because that’s what works for me. Don’t be afraid to try different things & make adjustments as you see fit! Just because one thing works for someone doesn’t mean it will work for everyone! You don’t have to be extreme you just have to be consistent.

ex 3 // cereal + yogurt parfait

9g F | 37g C | 28g P

3/4 C non-fat plain Greek yogurt

16 Journaling Prompts to Build Self-Confidence

Hi babe! Today I’m talking about something that has honestly been life changing for me. Previously I felt very numb and shut off from my feelings, until I started journaling. It allows me to work through things that are on my mind, to ask myself questions and get curious about my feelings. I now feel more in-tune with myself, my desires & goals. I’ve always felt like something was holding me back & now I know there was a lot things I needed to work through & am still working through. Journaling never really sounded like the most fun thing to do with my mind & so many times I’ve turned on a tv show, movie, or YouTube video, really anything to avoid hearing my thoughts. I’m still not perfect with it, but I know I feel better after I journal. I feel more aligned, clear & lighter. I can focus on what’s important & I feel more confident in who I am and has allowed me to trust myself more. It’s almost like a workout for your mind, you hardly ever want to but you know you need to & you’re happy you did after. Journaling can take time to start tapping into yourself again, but I promise if you try to make it a habit you’ll see the results!

Something I love is journal prompts especially when I don’t feel super inspired on my own. Below is a list of journaling prompts that will help you build confidence & help you learn about yourself to get started!

  1. What is something you have done that you are proud of?
  2. What quality do you most admire about yourself?
  3. What is one of your best personality traits?
  4. What is your favorite physical feature?
  5. What is one thing you’re really good at?
  6. When do you feel most confident?
  7. What can you do to make that happen more often?
  8. What makes you feel the least confident in yourself?
  9. Describe what your life would be like if you were more confident. What would you do or how would you act differently?
  10. What does self-love mean to you?
  11. What is something other people frequently compliment about you?
  12. What are 3 limiting beliefs you have about yourself that you need to let go of?
  13. What are 3 empowering beliefs you have about yourself?
  14. Who is someone who inspires you?
  15. What about them inspires you?
  16. What are your biggest goals/dreams?

Buffalo Chicken Ranch Dip

Hi Guys! Today I have another game day dip to share! This one is always the BIGGEST hit & any party I take it to people ask for the recipe which is fitting because that’s where I got it. It’s another very easy recipe which is pretty much a requirement for me on appetizers! Personally I like it how it is, but you can spice it up by adding extra hot sauce or a chopped jalapeño or tone it down with more ranch and less hot sauce.

Prep Time : 10 Minutes

Cook Time : 20 Minutes

What you’ll need :

  • 1 – 12.5oz Can of Chicken
  • 1/2 C Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 C Ranch
  • 1 – 8oz block of Cream Cheese softened
  • 1 – 8oz Bag of Shredded Cheese (you can use any but I like a cheddar or colby jack).

Directions :

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl mix the cream cheese, hot sauce, ranch, 1/2 bag of shredded cheese & drained can of chicken.
  3. Scoop mixture into a shallow 1-qt baking dish. Top with the remaining shredded cheese.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through, it will be bubbling.
  5. Serve with crackers, chips or cut up veggies.
