Winter Plaid OOTD!

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Heyyy Guys! Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday week! Here's my Outfit Of The Day from earlier today. I mixed plaid with checkered print, only because I felt a bit daring today. I even wore my favorite red lip stick by Rimmel London Kate. I was doing a little shopping so I wanted something comfy and not to complicated. Hope You enjoy!

 These Pants are definitely one of my favorites to wear. I love the look of them and they are so comfy.

I bought these boots over 2 years ago from "Ross Dress For Less" and I still where them, especially on rainy days.

 I am In love with the checkered black and white print on this scarf. It's very classic and can be worn with my different outfits or styles.

Ways to Relieve Stress & Pamper Yourself

Sunday, December 7, 2014

Stress can be a horrible thing that can be caused by many different aspects of life. Such as, work, school, relationships or just life in general. It's a natural part of life sometimes, but its our job to make sure we take care of it in a healthy way. Now its not good to hold in stress and never release it. It can eat at your body and cause many health problems. That is why it's always good to take a minute for yourself, Relax! and enjoy some "me" time. I would say once a week or once every 2 weeks treat yourself to things you REALLY! love and take care of your body. I have a few things I like to do on a weekly basis to keep my stress levels down and my energy up! Now before We start there are a few things that have to be done!

1. Relaxing Spa Bubble Bath

I'm all for bubble baths they just bring so much ease and comfort. Baths are so cleansing and relaxing for the body! They help calm your mind and give you some peace, If you really want to boost your mood add some sage essential oil to your warm bath to give you that extra relaxation and comfort. Warm water relaxes your muscles and can really give you a calm Ora. If you have aching muscles try adding some Epson salt to your warm bath to ease those pains! My Favorite Bubble Bath at the moment is this wonderful amazing relaxing smelling bubble bath from bath & body works called warm vanilla sugar. It is very calming and soothing. You can also go the more natural route and use essential oils. Essential Oils can give you great strength or help you relax.
Bubble Bath:

  Essential Oils:

 Tea Tree Oil helps with Cleansing the Body of Toxins and Stress.
Lavender Oil keeps the body calm and at a relaxed state.
Peppermint Oil Cools the body off and gives you a nice refreshing feeling. (Great for in the morning to wake you up)

** Essential oils were purchased at sprouts


 Don't forget to smell delicious when you get out the tub! I'm loving this new holiday collection from bath and body works! FROSTED WONDERLAND is Heaven! Since this is winter time go for more moisturizing lotions or body creams that have Shea butter for added moisture in these dry months.


I like to start off my day of pampering  by lighting candles and setting the right mood! I like to add some scents when I'm relaxing. My two favorite candles at the moment are Walnut Brownie by Living Colors (this candle smells just like a brownie!!) & Bourbon Blondie by Target (this candle also smells like a brownie) The two candles combined reminds me of being in a bakery with home made cookies, cakes and brownies!! Its wonderful. 

 2. Entertainment 

On those nights when its just you, and you get to choose whatever you want to watch. I like picking up some of my favorite feel-good movies and just watching all of them. While eating my favorite Vanilla Bean gelato!

If I'm not in the mood to watch movies, I usually just hop on my nook and start surfing you tube for my favorite you tubers and enjoy watching there videos. Beauty, Fashion, and Lifestyle Videos are my favorite to Watch! Here are the links to their You tube channels. Kayla Lashae ,Thats Heart & Fun For Louis

For my music selection I try and stay with more of the calming yoga style. It really helps me relax and focus. I don't have to listen to words just rhythm, beats and harmony! Try looking up the yoga station on Pandora Internet Radio it's one of my favorites.

4.DIY Beauty Treatments
What is a Pamper Night without a Face Mask! The Mountain Forest Raw Honey gives your face that added moisture it needs in the winter and it also works great at exfoliating the skin. Raw Honey has a lot of great benefits for the skin. It is very healing and can help with people who have Acne, enlarged pores, Eczema, Hyper pigmentation, and Sensitive life less skin.

  • Wash your face with a gentle cleanser, then Dry
  • Spread an even layer of raw honey on your face (avoiding the eye area)
  • Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes
  • Then Rinse it off completely
 ** Raw Honey was purchased at Whole Foods
I love writing! When I'm by myself I love to just write about anything, Random Topics, Short Stories, Poems. Just writing period! One of the best things to do when your relieving stress is start doing something you love or enjoy doing. Find out what your hobby is and DO IT! It takes your mind off of everything else and you can really just focus on you. Bring out that creative side we all have!

Hopefully these tips help you and you can go home and have a Nice Pamper Night to relieve some stress!

Until Next Time XOXO<3

Bath & Body Works Holiday Haul

Wednesday, December 3, 2014

Hey Guys!! So I recently went to Bath & Body works to check out there Holiday Collection and Boy! did I find some goodies. I only went there because they were having a buy 3 get 3 free sale and I had a coupon for 10 dollars off, so I wasn't going to past up that deal. I am so in love with this store, but I have to be careful because I can get ahead of myself and go a little over board. Usually I only go when they are having a sale, that way I feel a little better. Smells are definitely my weakness. I only picked up body creams and fragrance mist because when it comes to body wash, I need something very moisturizing not just a smell. So I buy that separately.

So with that being said the first thing I bought was FROSTED WONDERLAND! First lets just say the packaging on this holiday collection is Perfect! It really stands out and with the frosted flakes its so pretty. I love anything cute, and packaging is very important for me. So A+ for Bath & Body works!!

This smell reminds me of the winter time. It's very soft and relaxing! I chose all body creams instead of lotion because it's winter time and I want my skin to be as moisturized as possible.

The next thing I got was TWISTED PEPPERMINT! This is my Favorite smell so far. I love peppermint so much, anything with peppermint in it, I want. This smell is like a sweet peppermint. I makes me feel so alive and happy. Ive been using it at night and I think It helps me sleep better. It mint add a little cold tingle tot the skin, very refreshing. I picked up the body cream and spray.

Then I got the SUGAR PLUM DREAM! body cream. I only wanted the body cream because sometimes, since it's winter, my hands get really dry and I like to have something that smells good but also adds moisture. Now Bath & Body works add Shea butter in there lotion and body cream for 24 hour moisture. With me living in such a dry climate like Arizona, this helps a lot.

Last but not least I picked up a simple body cream, which is the COUNTRY CHIC! I've had the set before but I just wanted to get the body cream because I love the smell. If your looking for something soft and calming, this is the perfect smell. I will forever love this smell.

I hope you enjoyed this holiday haul from bath & body works. Hopefully you will try some of these also. I know what my staples will be this winter season. Direct links to all of these products are in the post.

Until Next Time XOXO<3
