ok if you insist…
this tee is $15.

its $15.
it has side slits to vent.
its $15.
it looks cute front tucked, tied or loose.
its $15.
it comes in 6 colors.

also a quick heads up, it runs slightly big so if you don’t want a loose fit, size down.


fave beauty buy

garnier skinactive micellar cleansing water for waterproof makeup //


this stuff has literally saved my sanity.
i used to wash and wipe and swab and wash and wipe and swab and never seemed to be able to get all of my eye makeup off.  then one day i grabbed this stuff and i am no longer losing my mind washing and wiping and swabbing.
even though i don’t wear waterproof mascara, sometimes you just need to use the waterproof version of this to get everything off.

so now, i soak a cotton round in this magic potion, hold it over my eyes for about 20 seconds and wipe away when done.  it dissolves every last bit of eyeliner, shadow and mascara and there’s no longer a black haze of residue left under my eyes and for $4, you cannot beat it!


fave read

girl wash your face by rachel hollis //



first of all, if you don’t follow rachel hollis on instagram, go do that now.  also, if you don’t follow me on instagram yet and i mean, if you’re reading this, you should be, go do that while you’re at it!

anyways, i looooove rachel hollis.  her instastories give me life and she can motivate you like no other!  i’ve been following along with her book tour videos and just had to pick up this book!  no matter what type of gal you are, this book will speak to you:

from amazon:  each chapter of girl, wash your face begins with a specific lie she once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. as a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a bff, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward.



fave eats

yogi honey lavender stress relief tea //


i know its not something you can eat, but when i tell you i drink this stuff every night while watching our shows, i drink this stuff every night while watching our shows.  lately in my fave new mug that’s $6 right now!  our tea cabinet is almost as packed as our mug cabinet and my faves are usually from yogi or trader joe’s.  i especially love the little saying each tea bag has – it always brings a little smile to my face!


fave deal

ebates! //


so if you don’t have ebates yet, you’re literally missing out on free money!

almost every retailer i buy from always has a cash back deal and with the simple add-on to my browser, a pop-up tells me to activate the deal and the cash back piles up!  i also linked up my most used card to earn cash back as well!  then i get PayPal payments (or you can get physical checks) with my cash back – they’re like fun little surprises!  $5 here, $60 there…  if you shop online, you are seriously doing yourself a disservice by NOT using ebates!  if you sign up with this code (its free!), you’ll get a $10 cash back bonus when you spend $25 online – sweeeeeet!


since i don’t workout…

let me tell you, i used to work out like CRAZY.
i was single and hit the gym 4-5 times a week and everything was tight and toned.  then i got married and the boys got older and more involved in activities and my gym time slowly started fading away and now its non-existent.

why do i tell you this?

i was going to do a workout essentials post for you, but wouldn’t i be a HUGE hypocrite if i did that???  yup!  and i don’t ever want to be a hypocrite so instead of putting together a big ol’ hypocritical blog post, i’m sharing some supercute gym clothes below that i would TOTALLY wear if i worked out.  maybe one day i will, but for now i’ll just hook you all up with some sweet duds on the cheap!
