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.
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.
It feels like it’s been awhile since I’ve actually sat down and written anything out on here. My motivation has completely shifted & I look forward to sharing so many things I’ve found and become obsessed with recently. Starting with my favorite Neutral Fall Home Decor pieces. I go through phases of what I want to spend my money on what I’m hunting and shopping for. It has definitely been home items recently. Most items are Target with a few Walmart & Amazon sprinkled in. Here are some of my favorites below!
Indoor/Outdoor Scattered Rug – This is from the Studio McGee Line & it is absolutely beautiful. It can be used inside or outside – I think it would look so festive underneath a fall welcome mat, but I have mine just inside my door. I’ve already had people who come and go asking about it. For the quality of this rug I was really surprised to see it was only $20!
16 In Faux Olive Leaf Potted Plants – A Hearth & Hand with Magnolia gem! This is a great piece to add in because in the wood base there are some fall hues that will tie in perfectly BUT you can use it even beyond fall into the next seasons because wood & greenery will go with anything. I love a good fake plant, you get the gorgeous greens without having to remember to water!
Loop Pumpkin Throw Pillow – When picking fall pieces I think it’s important to make sure you stick with colors that go with your furniture and decor already – this is one of those pieces. The cream color blends nicely & the design is festive yet subtly. A great piece that will be good until Thanksgiving.
Better Homes & Gardens Acacia Wood Tray – WOW am I impressed with this price point & size. A great Walmart find, trust me when I say the photo doesn’t even slightly do it justice. It’s an Acacia Wood tray with gold handles that looks beautiful on an ottoman or counter area. I went to my local store & I will say the care of their employees is subpar you can tell they weren’t unpacked carefully as some of them had definitely rubbed on one another and left streaks of exposed light wood. When you go just check to make sure the piece was taken care of. I have mine styled on my ottoman with an oversized black vase which will be linked below & a fall candle.
Earthenware Fall Texture White Vase – Ordered this vase after I found it online – my local target is actually the worst because there SO MUCH stuff that they don’t have. I’m glad I found this piece though because I found some really pretty picks (also from target here) & needed a big vase – this one is 10×8.5×8.5 and will look absolutely PERFECT. It even has a smaller sibling piece thats 7x7x7 here that’s layered in the photo.
Large Ceramic Pumpkin Honey Yellow – I love how this pumpkin looks styled on my shelf – it’s such a beautiful neutral tan color they also come in medium & small. When I pulled out all my decor I had true orange pumpkins from previous year & I ended up putting them back in the box because I felt like they clashed so badly. I ended up going back to target and getting the Medium Ceramic Pumpkin Orange & the Small Ceramic Pumpkin Cream. Orange, cream & black all come in multiple sizes as well.
24’x24′ Woven Checkered Throw Pillow with Tassels – Theses are brand new from the Magnolia line – I think they might actually be part of the Christmas launch (the styled photos are Christmas) but don’t even get me started on Christmas. Such an amazing price point & such high quality. These sold out at my local Target in ONE DAY so I had to order mine online & they are BEAUTIFUL!
White Knife Block Set – To me this is a decor piece because it sits out on my counter, but it’s also really functional. If I’m going to leave something out all the time you better believe it’s going to be pretty. I’m absolutely obsessed with these!! Not really fall, but I love it and had to include it!
96oz Pumpkin Serving Bowl – I can’t even explain how excited I am to use this adorable serving piece. It’s only $15 & such great quality it is truly a beautiful piece. It’s so beautiful you can leave it on your stovetop. I leave mine on a floating shelf in my kitchen when not using it.
Stoneware Pie Pan Orange – Another beautiful serve ware piece that is so festive for all your beautiful fall pies. There’s a few different serving pieces in this beautiful Orange color and I’m going to collect them all.
6×6 Fabric Figurine Pumpkin – I also grabbed a few of these to mix in to the ceramic pumpkin I got & they look so cute together. If you have floating shelves they mix so beautifully together.
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.
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!
I found THEE CUTEST Halloween Pj’s from Target. Well to be fair my boyfriend surprised me with them. They’re SO SOFT, literally like butter & really fun for the holiday. If they’re not in stock check back because they’ve done a couple of restocks on them! Linked below.
I’m sure you guys have heard Nordstrom has had some HUGE markdowns, some even better than the NSALE. I’ve combed through and here are the shoe picks I’ve found. Tons of boots and booties perfect for Fall & Winter coming up.
Okay I know I’m not the only one who dies of excitement when you walk into target and see all the fall stuff they have out. It might be too warm to wear sweaters, but it’s not too soon to buy them. Budget finds usually sell out very quick so if you don’t buy them you might not see them again.
Color Block Cardigain – At first I wasn’t sold on this coloring, but I’m so glad I bought it because I haven’t stopped wearing it. This cardigan is made of the coziest fabric. I got it in a size small it fits TTS to a bit oversized in the sleeves but I like it that way! This sweater is only $27.99 & comes in a few other colors.
Lime Green Sweater – I was immediately drawn to this color and with my dark hair against this lime green I feel like Shego from Kim possible. This bright green is a huge trend for Fall! If this color isn’t your favorite they have plenty of others to choose from a hot pink, stripes & a cheetah print. $20 & I got it in a M to fit a bit oversized.
Cognac Long Sleeved Tee – I want this T-shirt in every single color they make because it is that good. It’s made of the softest material & it’s $10! I got it in this camel cognac color & black and white stripes that I love to wear underneath the color blocked cardigan (I can’t find stripes online, but maybe check in stores). I sized up to a M because I want them to fit a bit loose.
Color Blocked Sweater – I’m obsessed with everything about this sweater, the color combo + the same cozy material as the first 2 sweaters. The top hot coral color is really popular this fall & looks just like the Fall 2020 Pantone color “Samba”. The fit is oversized so you could definitely down size, but I still got a Small because I liked the fit. This find was $24.99!
Knit Sweater – this is such a staple piece that you can wear for many seasons. It’s a really simple knit sweater and perfect for fall & winter. It comes in so many colors! I got this yellow, but I’ve been debating going back for the Forrest green or periwinkle color. My sister also picked this one up in an oatmeal & a rust color. I sized up to a M in this one & it’s $20.
Turtle Neck Sweater – Oh my gosh, this material feels so luxe. I honestly don’t know how it’s only $29.99. I love the turtle neck & side slits. It’s the perfect sweater to pair with leggings because it gives you good bum coverage too! I picked this white color, but they also have a mauve, cognac & a few others. It fits really oversized so I sized down to a XS.
Charcoal Button Down – I am a sucker for a good chambray style shirt. I’ve never seen one in this dark color so I had to snag it. I love that you can dress it up or down. The perfect shirt for pumpkin patch visits. It does come in a few other colors & was $19.99. The website says that it’s Navy but to me it’s really dark & I think of it more as charcoal.
I also wanted to mention I’ve actually been using my Like to Know It account recently, you can follow me here. I post more frequently on there.
Hey girl, how are ya? Welcome back, I’m about to speak some knowledge to you & blow your mind. Today I’m sharing with you all the best vitamins for us specifically. Probably things that should have been included in our maturation program if we’re being real, but no worries. I’m here! I’ve done my research & I’m ready to share with all of you.
It’s no secret the female body is extremely complex. Our hormone cycles every 28 days & along with the magic abilities we have to give life we also have those days when we are just feeling out of whack & quite frankly crazy. I know we’ve all been there sitting in our cars watching a video about a dog or some random news story that makes us bawl & pretty soon we’re back to reality.
One of the biggest key vitamins that we are deficient in is Magnesium! Magnesium plays a HUGE part in helping to regulate your hormones. There are endless benefits but to name a few :
PMS, it can help to balance your mood by regulating progesterone on the central nervous system & decreases anxiety by regulating Cortisol.
Energy! When you are feeling sluggish & tired during that spectacular time of the month, magnesium will provide you with energy. It also allows you to sleep better.
Cramps. If you’re like me I’ve always struggled with painful period, magnesium will help relax your contracting muscles.
Sweet Cravings. Did you know that craving chocolate is often times your bodies way of telling you that you need magnesium? Dark chocolate is magnesium rich.
Within the average american diet females are only getting 50% of their daily amount. What can we do to increase this number?
1- Eat more magnesium rich foods. I’ve listed a few common ones below :
2- Take a magnesium supplement! Daily recommended amount on average is 320 mg.
Next major supplement is a B-Complex. B vitamins help your body convert food into energy. A b-complex consists of 8 different vitamins.
B-1 is Thiamin. It enables carbs to be used as energy. It plays a key role in nerve, muscle & heart function.
B-2 Riboflavin helps your body break down fat.
B-3 Niacin allows you to maintain healthy skin, nerves & digestion.
B-5 Pantothenic Acid is essential for the heath of the brain & nervous system.
B-6 Pyridoxine helps you to make more red blood cells & upkeep a strong immune system.
B-7 Biotin. I’m sure you’re familiar with this one. It helps you grow healthy hair, nails & skin.
B-9 Folic Acid is important for proper brain function & emotional and mental health.
B-12 Cobalamin is required for your nerve & blood cells. It also prevents anemia, supports your bones & improves your mood.
Vitamin D, this is the vitamin we get from the Sun! It helps us absorb calcium which helps us build & keep strong bones.
K1 & K2 play important roles in blood clotting, promoting good bone & heart health.
I hope this knowledge & testing out these vitamins help you feel like the best you possible. You are really the only one who knows what your body specifically needs & if something makes a difference and helps you.
Hey ladies!! Today I’m sharing some 4th of July outfit inspo of things I’m dying over as I hunt for my own 4th of July outfit.
