Hi friends, I wanted to share this jacket that I’ve seen EVERYWHERE recently. My Instagram feed has been filled with multi colors (5 to be exact) of this adorable knit quilted lightweight jacket from Free People that is to die for. It’s no question Free People has a reputation for creating beautiful high quality clothes, but they’re also known for having a spendy price tag.
Which leads me to this amazing quilted zip-up dupe I found recently at Forever 21! It’s almost 1/4 the price and equally as cute! Both are on trend this season and will transition well to cold spring mornings! Main differences : zipper detailing on FP is gold, F21 is silver. FP jacket is distressed. F21 jacket has a hood. Pocket placement on each jacket is slightly different. Do you prefer the splurge or save option!?
Hi friends! I wanted to put together a list of all my recent favorites & products I’ve been loving so far in 2021! These are the products I’ve been loving & reaching for over and over again for skincare, makeup, fashion & random items that are absolutely necessary to me.
Tula The Cult Classic Purifying Cleanser – I’ve quickly realized the reason “cult classic” is in the title. I love this gel cleanser because it leaves my face feeling so clean & glowy, this is one you can genuinely feel good about using because it’s 100% free from phthalates, parabens, toxins, carcinogens, mineral oil, sodium laurel sulfate, and harmful preservatives. YAY!
Hydro Boost Water Gel – I’m OBSESSED with this moisturizer because it has Hyaluronic Acid in it which attracts water from the air into your skin. It REALLY moisturizes your skin. It’s lightweight but it makes your skin feel nice & supple, plump & hydrated.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – I know you’ve heard of the lip mask, but this one is for your skin! It’s the consistency of moisturizer & does absorb into your skin so you don’t have to worry about it getting onto your pillow. When you wake up in the morning you face is SO SOFT! Don’t believe me? It has 163.9k loves from other customers on Sephora’s website alone.
Olaplex Hair Treatment – this treatment has 2 parts No. 0 & No. 3, which can be used by itself if you want to just try out one. I color my hair & use this treatment once a week & it has helped my hair so much, even my boyfriend noticed how soft & shiny my hair was after using this! It helps keep my hair strong.
Living Proof Dry Shampoo – I’ve loved this dry shampoo for awhile, but I don’t normally get the jumbo size & I love it because it lasts so much longer not quite double the product but only $10 more which overall saves me money! The technology behind this dry shampoo is so cool! It will actually bind to the oil in your hair & after a few minutes I rub my roots & the white powder along with the oil LITERALLY brushes out of my hair to leave fresh clean hair. The product doesn’t build up & feel gross in your hair either!
Maybelline Lifter Gloss – I always grab this gloss in the ice color – I keep one in my bag & one with all my makeup when I get ready for the day & it’s so nice! It has hyaluronic acid & naturally plumps up your lips – nothing too dramatic & it doesn’t hurt like a plumper. It smoothes out the cracks/lines in your lips & it’s not sticky AT ALL.
Everyday Essentials Brush Set – I cannot believe I’ve been missing out on these brushes. I haven’t ever been able to justify $50 for 1 brush & I’ve always used inexpensive brushes from morphe BUT THEY SHED like crazy! This led me to these amazing brushes from Real Techniques – I’ve loved their beauty sponges for years so I’m not sure why I didn’t think to test out their brushes. Now that I have, I’m never going back. They are SUCH great quality – so soft & no shedding whatsoever. They blend like a dream too! I also went back and grabbed the Eye Essentials kit – which comes with a lash separator to use after mascara to prevent clumping and I LOVE. I also grabbed this really big bronzer brush & it’s probably my favorite out of all of them. They’re BOGO 1/2 off right now too!!!
Shape Tape – Again I’ve always loved this product, but last year I was searching for more drugstore options & ran out of this and forgot to grab more so I continued to use the drugstore “dupes”. HOWEVER, I just recently started back using Shape Tape & let me just say I haven’t found another product that does what this does for my under eyes. Perfect example of if it’s not broken don’t fix it, lol! ALSO : I found shape tape on sale basically 2 for the price of 1 + a free sponge on QVC. Use the code : OFFER if it’s your first time ordering from them or HELLO if it’s you second time. That will bring the price down to $27.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette – This palette is so beautiful & it’s perfect for everyday. It has a ton of neutrals & mattes with a few shimmery shades thrown in there for when you need a little extra for date night or a night on the town.
Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette – I LOVE this palette – the story is great the quality is great it really can’t get better. I love how inexpensive these palettes are ESPECIALLY how many shades you get it’s crazy to me. The colors in the palette are so awesome for spring & summer coming up & if you’re into bright colors this is the palette for you.
Adidas Promotion Adapt Shoes – These shoes are so convenient & easy to quickly put on + they’re super cute. I’ve been using them on my training days in the gym or just for going on a walk/running errands. I love the elastic bands on the shoe they really hold it tight to your foot which I like & they have the cloud foam technology which feels like you’re walking on a cloud.
Fawn Design Backpack Mini – This is such a great bag & has so many pockets to help keep you organized. I know it’s meant to be a diaper bag, but the mini is the perfect size as a purse. I am really impressed with the quality – it’s really soft & nice leather thats super thick and well made. I love that it can be wiped down completely too.
Amazon Cotton Thong Panties – Listen – I was a Victoria’s Secret ride or die for awhile & then all my underwear started falling apart & bleeding onto my other clothes. I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of undies that are comfy because that’s my main concern & then I found this pack on amazon it’s 6 pairs for 10 bucks! Are you kidding? Why was I spending $30 for 5-7 pairs of undies?! Anyway I’m not the only one who loves these they have over 26,000 rating & are the #1 bestseller in thongs on Amazon.
Velvet Self Tanning Mitt – WOW! Has this made the biggest difference in my self tanning or what?! Why on earth I kept buying cheap little ones from Ulta I do not know. This baby will last FOREVER. It helps you blend out the moose SO MUCH EASIER & it takes way less effort to get a streak free tan. Since using it I really have stayed streak free. It’s super easy to clean afterwards as well.
Quip Electric Toothbrush – I cannot find the color that I have, but if you go in-store maybe you can find it! I have a pink & rose gold toothbrush. I really love the bristles on this tooth brush because they genuinely clean my teeth so well & it has a built in timer. It comes with a travel case & a holder to stick it onto your mirror if you want to. The replacement heads are $5 for a new brush head + it comes with a new battery as well, they have an auto ship options for every 3 months & the first month is free.
Hi friends! I seriously can’t get over how Walmart has stepped up their fashion game. They’re all such great quality especially for the price! I’ve linked some of my recent favorites from my order. When I’m ordering I typically stick to a few brands that I know I like & are good quality so I don’t get cat-fished.
Square Neck Puff Sleeve Mesh Top – this top is from No Boundaries (one of my favorite brands. TTS. So cute & flirt, will definitely go in and out of stock because it’s so popular. I got the black but it comes in other colors.
Over the knee boots – these black synthetic suede type material boots are so soft + cute! They have a tie in the back to keep them tight around your thigh & a zipper at the ankle to make putting them in easier. 1 inch block heel, easy to walk in & TTS.
AC/DC Band Tee – this leopard print/acid wash duo is to die for. Fits TTS but I ordered a size up to get a bigger oversized fit.
Shearling Hiker Boots – I wear these constantly, lace up lug style hiker Boots with a shearling tongue. They fit TTS.
Cheetah Print Sweatshirt – super cute AND cozy! The best of both worlds. TTS a little oversized length to cover the booty.
Camo Print Sweatshirt – I love how cute & flattering this sweatshirt is, it has side slit detailing. A bit of extra length in the back to fit more tunic style. TTS.
Sherpa Pullover – this is such a great dupe for the A+F pullovers but for only a fraction of the price. It’s so cozy & warm, fits TTS.
If you want to see me entire order watch it here on my YouTube channel!

Knit Mockneck Sweater – This sweater is almost sold out but it’s the perfect chunky sweater for the season!
High Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans – on sale right now for only $39 & they’re normally $78! This is such a steal for the cutest black jeans ever. I love these because there distressing/fraying is only around the ankle so you don’t have to Rory about the holes in your knees getting bigger over time, my biggest pet peeve!
Moto Leather Jacket – a great leather jacket should be a staple piece in every closet. This is something you can wear over and over throughout the years.
Cheetah biker shorts – I absolutely love the biker short trend, it looks so adorable with a long band tee over the top.
Collarless Blazer Sweater – such a great laying piece that will keep you cozy & warm. Comes in 5 colors & is 46% off right now.
Over Sized T-Shirt Dress – I need this ASAP such a simple dress that looks so dang cute. It looks so cute paired with sneakers. If it’s a little colder where you are pair it with tights/leggings a pair of combat style boots a jacket or flannel.
Zella High Waisted Leggings – over 7,000 reviews with a 4.5/5! Great alternative to lulu leggings if you’re worried about price! Non slip waistband, wicking material, great for working out.
Nike Renew Run Shoes I need these shoes in EVERY COLOR and they make a lot of them. Some of the colors are on sale right now too! Varying prices depending on the color combo.
Adidas Cloudfoam Sneakers – ON SALE. These sold out on Adidas but i found them at Nordstrom rack on sale. I actually have these on while writing this. They are by far the most comfy sneakers I own. Side note : would be awesome Disneyland shoes if it ever opens back up!
Gradina Block Heel Bootie – This print has been so popular this year, I love the slit detail it’s so cute + makes them easier to get on. 33% off right now!
Marc Fish Izzie Lugsole Boot – full disclosure these boots are a higher price point but they are also quite possibly the most perfect pair of boots I’ve seen.
Vans Asher Slip Ons – I’m pretty sure everyone under the sun owns these but they are easy,cute & comfy. What more could you ask for? If you haven’t grabbed a pair or if you new a fresh pair now is the time!
Steve Madden Studded Sandals – way too cold to wear these right now in Utah, but these would be perfect to have for next summer! They have a few different color options!
Tory Burch Sandals – these are a best seller every single year. They have so many colors too! Not quite as expensive as the Marc fisher boots but these are a higher price point.
– Accessories –
Joanna Straw Hat – super cute hat + protections from the UV rays? YES PLEASE. every poolside and beach day needs this hat.
Wireless Soma Bra – doesn’t this look like the comfiest bra to exist!? I have a similar one from VS but honestly this one looks way nicer.on my list this year!
Quay After Hours Sunnies – quay sunnies are such great quality & they always have the cutest styles. By far my favorite place to get sunglasses. BOGO 1/2 off right now.
Prism Hydroflask – my mom just ordered this & I’m not joking the pink is the cutest colored hydro flask I’ve ever seen.
– Beauty –
Shape Tape – #1 selling concealer, by far my favorite. On sale for only $19 right now.
Living Proof Dry Shampoo – I didn’t understand the hype about this until I tried it. I will NEVER use another dry shampoo. And I’ve tried a lot of them.
Supergoop Sunscreen – this product is amazing, no surprise it has a cult following. It’s a primer/sunscreen duo that grips your makeup and protects your skin. It’s also a clean product at Sephora! I love innovating products like this!
Olaplex No. 3 – hair treatment to strengthen and repair damaged hair!
SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic Serum – this serum has a higher price tag but for me it’s well warranted because this is professional grade skincare. They have higher levels of active ingredients which will actually help you achieve the skin results you’re looking for. Professional grade skincare also has to meet FDA guidelines.
Fenty Bronzer – smooth easy to blend bronzer, comes in 8 different colors! You have to respect the versatility here. Most brands have anywhere from 3-5 ish shades in their range. I.e. hoola has 4, too faced & Marc Jacobs both have 3.
Barefoot Dreams Blanket – I have no words for how soft this blanket is. By far the best blanket. Not too hot but just the right amount of cozy.
Caraway Ceramic Non-stick Cookwear – I saw these the other day and wow they’re beautiful but also practical because they’re non-toxic! I didn’t even know my other non-stick pans were made with chemicals that come off onto your food over time.
Hyacinth Storage Bins – I’m not surprised these were a best seller this year after the internet breaking series The Home Edit on Netflix. Such an awesome thing to grab now to start 2021 right!
Dyson V11 – every house needs one or three! Hahah we have 3 in our home right now but we’ve had I think 5 at one point. Awesome because it’s cordless, lightweight & fits anywhere. Perfect to take out to your car, up and down the stairs and under basically any bed!
Tuft&Needle Mattress – on sale for 10% off right now but it’s already a great price especially for a mattress. The over 31k reviews 4.6/5 speaks for itself.
Hi guys! I’ve compiled this list of gifts for her – a mix of things I have and love & things on my list as well! You’ll find gifts for Wife/GF, Sister, Mom, Mother-in-laws etc. I also tried to include different price points – in this gift guide I split them into price categories depending on what you’re looking for.
$25 & under
Sherpa Throw Blanket – I cannot believe how inexpensive this blanket is, especially for such a cozy & cute blanket. The 849 reviews at 4.8/5 stars speak for themselves.
Fuzzy Slippers – these slippers have a cult following it’s the craziest thing ever. They’re soft & cozy but the criss-cross open toes allows your feet to breathe which is my main concern with slippers.
USB Lighter – I bought this Rechargeable USB Lighter back in August & I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve used it. I absolutely love it because you never need to buy another one just charge it up! You could even pair this with a yummy candle for a cute gift!
Aroma Therapy Neck & Shoulder Wrap – all good spa days begin with a warm one of these babies, they smell like lavender & are weighted so they’re extremely relaxing. This baby can actually be heated or cooled in the freezer. Awesome gift for a co-worker or a busy mom.
Living Proof Dry Shampoo Set – Every woman in your life would appreicate this gift, by far the best dry shampoo I’ve ever used. The way the technology works is by binding to oil and then the actual shampoo will flake off along with the oil so it actually completely removes it & doesn’t leave you with a bunch of gross residue.
Jet Lag Mask – My sister actually got me this last year & I’ve been obsessed with it ever since. The consistency is like a thick cream moisturizer & I sleep with it, you can wipe it off but I don’t because it isn’t greasy. When you wake up the next day you’ll feel like a new person!
Organic Bath Bomb Set – If she’s a bath type of girl, this set has 24 bath bombs (6 scents & 6 colors) awesome price point for that many! Almost 9,000 reviews coming in at 4.5/5 stars.
Stainless Steel Tumbler – If you don’t know what to get a co-worker, this is it! Keeps your drinks cold all day long.
Scrunchie Set – 6 pack or scrunchies, everyone could use more hair scrunchies & I love this pack because it has sleep, fancy & tailed scrunchies.
$50 & Under
Sating Sleep Set – This cute set comes with a satin pillowcase, eye mask & scrunchie. I switched to a satin pillowcase a few years ago & it’s been so great for me skin & my hair. Great gift for mom, bestie or sister!
One-Step Hair Dryer – This thing is magical. Again would make a great gift for any of the ladies on your list. It makes drying your hair a breeze.
Amika Soulfood Hair Mask – A great present for a sister or bestie, I just grabbed this one for my sister’s birthday & she loves it! She said it made her hair feel so soft. Amika products all smell absolutely amazing, like if they could make this scent a perfume I would buy it!
Laneige Lip Mask Set – I’ve been a big fan of this lip mask for years, I use it every night. It’s crazy how soft it leaves your lips!
Custom Cutting Board – Such a good gift for Mom or a MIL even newly weds, the perfect addition to any kitchen. Looks so cute on the counter up against the backsplash or is a great serving piece for cheese & meat.
Tarte Palette Set – This is one of the best gift sets I’ve seen this season. It comes with 3 smaller versions of their best selling palettes, some of my favorites from Tarte too. Perfect gift for any beauty queen.
Instant Pot 6 Qt – I’ve had mine for over 2 years & I use it at least 2 times a week. You can use it to sauté vegetables & then add all the broth to make a soup. I’ve cooked frozen chicken breasts in 15 minutes, meal prepped rice, & even made mac & cheese. It can work like a slow cooker, pressure cooker, & has so many features! Ok I’ll stop just know i love it.
Air Fryer – this will make all the snack and treats you can eat! My favorites are french fries, wontons & corndogs.
Thermal Matching Set – this year is the year of cozy matching sets, this one comes in a bunch of colors + it’s on sale.
Custom Name Necklace – such a huge trend going around & I’m actually on board with this one. You can get her name, a child’s name or even a pet!
Perfume Sampler Set – This gift is so underrated, the set comes with 13 samples of perfumes. Scents are really personal & I know I’m really picky when it comes to scents. This gift is perfect because it comes with a voucher for her to take in to redeem a full size bottle of one of the samples.
SPANX Faux Leather Leggings – These leggings have been a best seller the past few years & for good reason. They’re so dang cute! They come in petite & plus sizing as well. They run small so be sure to order a size up. The regular sizing is 20% off right now too!
Fawn Design – This backpack is technically made to be a diaper bag, however so many girls use this as a purse. It’s on my list this year and comes in tons of cute colors/prints. New this year they have a snake print & a cheetah/spotted print in their Holiday collection.
Black Opium Perfume – this perfume is warm & spicy. 5,000 reviews with a 4.7/5 – it’s safe to say everyone loves this.
Dyson V8 Cordless Vacuum – another necessity in our house. My mom had 5 of these at one point, we’re currently back down to 3. The most convenient thing ever – not just inside, but I frequently take it out to my car! $150 off.
This year more than ever everyone can use a great deal on gifts. 2020 hasn’t been easy and I know money has been tight for a lot of people, but at the same time we don’t want this year to feel different. We’ve had enough taken this year. That being said I wanted to make one big list of all the deals that are going on for Black Friday and cyber Monday, that way there is one resource for you and you don’t have to go all over searching. I will continue to update this list as more things go on sale!
Abercrombie – 40% off for myAbercrombie members (just put your email in).
Ralph Lauren Perfume – this was by far Dakota’s favorite when we went looking for perfumes. I’m extremely picky when it comes to scents and if I like, its good! Notes of green apple, pink magnolia, purple freeshia, & a soft musk.
Christmas is RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER, I know crazy right? I didn’t think we would make it through 2020 either. I put together this complete guide of what to get those special guys in your life weather its your boyfriend, husband, brother or dad – I have a gift for you! I also tried to include different gifts for different hobbies, interests & some that would be amazing for any guy.
1 – YSL Y Cologne – By far the best smelling cologne I’ve ever seen. This was a bestseller last year for Christmas & the girl who helped me said she expects the same this year. It’s a mix of fresh citrus + woodsy. When I dream of what I’d want my boyfriend/husband to smell like THIS IS IT!
2 – Click Adjustable Belts – These belts are SO COOL! They’re extremely adjustable unlike regular belts that have holes so far apart, you can get your belt the PERFECT FIT with these.
3 – Carhartt Beanie – If you live in a colder climate you cannot go wrong with a Carhartt Beanie, it comes in tons of colors.
4 – Muscle/Massage Gun I’ve been wanting one of these but haven’t been able to justify it, i found this one that is such a great price & it still has 4.6/5 stars & 186 reviewers. If it’s out of stock (gone in and out a few times) there’s also this one – still decent price point here.
5 – Blender Bottles pack. This 3 pack of blender bottles is such a good deal! Great for the gym goer or protein drinking men in your life.
6 – Patagonia Puff Coat – I LOVE the way these Patagonia jackets look because they can easily be dressed up or down & they last for years! Comes in 4 different colors, a gift you both will love!
16 – Grilling Set – for the grill master in your life. There’s also a deluxe set here.
17 – Men’s Henley – my boyfriends FAVORITE long sleeved T-shirt. We sized up just in case it shrinks & because my boyfriends is super tall. I don’t know what it is but I love when my boyfriend wears a Henley.
19 – Oakley Sunglasses – to be completely honest I don’t understand men’s sunglasses and they don’t seem to understand mine but every guy I know loves these.
20 – Hot Sauce Making Kit – another universal favorite that I don’t seem to understand, it could just be because I can’t handle the heat! This actually seems SO FUN & he can personalize it to his taste.
21 – Shacket – you can’t go wrong with a flannel shirt jacket, this one is a best seller & has 7,450 4.6/5 reviews!
22 – Skincare Set – All of Ulta’s best sellers! The aquabomb is one of my favorite products. Men need skincare too!!
23 – Custom Face Socks – these are such a fun gift you can put your face, a pet or even a child on these custom socks!
24 – Hydroflask – a great gift for the guy you don’t know what to get!
25 – Men’s Dress Pants – we accidentally found these pants at Target & Dakota ended up loving them so we went back and got more! Perfect if you have a worker bee. I was really surprised by the quality with how inexpensive they are.
26 – Golf Laser Range Finder – this is such a great deal! Has amazing reviews & may help out his golf game so he comes home from the course in a better mood.
36 – Cologne Set – these sets are so underrated! I think they’re the coolest idea ever. When it comes to scents i feel like people are really particular, some like fresh some like woodsy. This set comes with a few samples of some of the most popular colognes along with a voucher for a full size! He can test out which one he likes and take his voucher in to pick his favorite!
37 – Double Camp Chair – I’m absolutely obsessed with these! Another cool idea that can be used over and over! Camping, roasting marshmallows, BBQ’s, baseball games, fireworks etc!
