What'sCaughtMyEye6


1// Ikea Tartan Throw in Hermine    2// Clinique All About Shadow Single in Black Honey
3// Love Does by Bob Goff   4// Philosophy Hope In A Jar   5// Prada Candy


So that's my list of WHAT'S CAUGHT MY EYE this week. I'm gonna be honest, I own 4 of the items on this list. The Essie Nail Polish has been on my nails for the last two weeks, I love the color and I definitely see it being a staple for my fall nail looks. I've owned Bob Goff's book for the last year or so and have listened to it multiple times. In fact, I am currently listening to it on my commute to and from training. This past week in Jacksonville I purchased two items on this list; I've been using both Philosophy's Hope In A Jar for the last week, as well as been wearing Prada's Candy. I am loving both items. Moving into the winter months, my skin gets drier. Hope In A Jar, has really been an amazing product to help combat that. As for the perfume, I love the scent. It is a sweeter muskier scent than my norm which I feel suits the autumn season. I definitely recommend all of the items above.

So that's my list of WHAT'S CAUGHT MY EYE this week. I tried a sample of the Amore Pacific Vitalizing Masque and it was incredible, it is definitely an item I plan to purchase.

So that's my list of WHAT'S CAUGHT MY EYE this week. Since I am moving into a new space later this month, I've been looking at different solutions for my new bathroom. There isn't as much storage in it as my current bathroom. At the moment I am leaning towards the above Etagere from Target. If you have any suggestions please share :)

I don't know about you but throughout the week I often see and hear about a lot of things that peak my interest. It can be fashion items, beauty products, music, books, tv shows, food... whatever. I've found the easiest way for me to keep track of all these new things is to create a folder on my desktop. I put pictures and web links of all the items in there and that is where they stay until I can either save up for them or find something I like more to replace them. Looking through that folder today, I thought it'd be fun to share some of these items with all of you. So here is my list of WHAT'S CAUGHT MY EYE this week. I'd like to make this a weekly thing and would love for you all to join in on the fun. 

So, what items are you loving this week? Let me know in the comments below.


oh my... Aliyah's 7 & I've got another gift idea for you


Last night we celebrated Aliyah's 7th birthday. A group of all her Florida friends and family came together to make her birthday (that is actually today) as special as we could. The party was held at her favorite restaurant, Sweet Tomatoes, and it was full of yummy food, presents, a special bday cupcake and lots of giggles. I honestly can't believe she is 7, it's been fun to reflect on the past six years. She has grown to be an amazing young lady, a brave big sister and a supportive and steadfast friend. I can't wait to see what this next year holds for her.

aliyahs_7thbday_gift
1// $2 Beauty Bag set of two (Target Dollar Bins - In Store)   2// Matte Nail Polish (hand me down she asked me for)   
3// Lip Smuckers Chapstick in Watermelon   4// $1 Nail Art Stickers in Leopard Print (Target Dollar Bins - In Store)   
5// ELF Shimmering Facial Whip    6// Bubble Yum Bubble Gum   7// $1 BFF Ring Set (Target Dollar Bins - In Store)   
8// $1 Stationary Set (Target Dollar Bins - In Store)   9// Circo Girls Woven Top


I am currently on a budget, like most people, but I still wanted to get Aliyah something I knew she'd love and something that'd make her feel special. I gave myself a $20 limit and I am happy to report that I checked out at $16.78. When it came to wrapping, I used a bag that I had saved and then I sorted all the items into two groups. The first group of bits and bobs went into the bigger beauty bag and the second group of beauty items went into the smaller bag. Aliyah's makeup collection is growing and I thought the two bags would not only be fun for her to open on her birthday and find the goodies but that they would also be great to help her keep all her makeup, lipgloss and nail polish organized and in one place. I topped the bag off with her shirt, the little layers of ruffles on the back replaced the tissue paper I would normally buy.

She seemed pretty happy when she opened it, which to me is a win. Giving gifts is one of my favorite things to do, that being said I've had to learn to be wise and to embrace a budget savvy mindset while shopping for all the goodies. A great gift doesn't have to break the bank to be special, it just has to be full of love.

Happy Birthday Aliyah! I love you lots!

oh my... a girly gift idea

I love to buy presents for my friends and loved ones. I honestly get a little thrill out of thinking about what they'd like to receive and really try to put a good amount of thought into it. I recently went to a bachelorette party for, my now sister, Kendall. Because I was going into this as the older sis and because I'm probably more naive and immature in the whole realm of sexy bachelorette party gifts, I decided to go the bath and beauty route and found lots of little goodies that would make Kendall feel loved and pampered.

gift_idea

1// Que Bella Face Masks   2// Bella by Illume Candle in Vanilla Amber   3// Boots Mango Body Wash   4// Boots Mango Sugar Scrub   5//Boots Mango Body Butter  
 6// Revlon Nail Art in Jackson Polish and Silhouette   7// Trim 7-Way Nail Buffer   8// Nate Berkus Penta Bowl

Target is one of my favorite stores, no joke if I could go there everyday I probably would. But that would do major damage on my budget so I abstain. 

The first step for this gift was to find a basket to hold all of the goodies. Kendall and Garrett's living room colors are purple, black and creme... I didn't want to get a plain basket, but one that would be a fun accent to their room. I saw this Nate Berkus bowl and I instantly loved how much of a statement piece it was. After deciding on the basket, I hit the candle aisle because whenever I have a pamper session the first thing I do is light some candles. I feel like it creates a space where you can relax, plus it smells yummy. Win-win. Next, I hit up the beauty aisle. I found 3 masks that I've used before and love. These particular masks are a bargain and they have always left my skin feeling refreshed and moisturized. With the face taken care of, I moved on to some bath and body products. Boots is a european brand and I've heard many youtube vloggers talk about the Mango line, so I thought it'd be a nice addition to the basket. The scent is fruity and summery. Last but not least, nails. I found two of Revlon's Nail Arts in shades that I thought were great basics for any season, and of course a nail buffer to perfect her manicure. 

This was a fun gift to put together and she seemed to really like it. Which is a WIN in my book :)
