Over the past few summer months I have been loving making stuffed bell peppers, scrammeled eggs, and eating allll the fruit (espeically watermelon)!

But the one food pick I wanted to share with you guys is this new Watermelon Limade drink mix I have been LOVING from Walmart. It’s an energy electrolyte drink mix that I actually have been using as a pre workout but it tastes SO GOOD! Plus, if you have a hard time getting enought water in throughout the day then just favor packets can help water taste a little less boring, which is always a plus.

I am not much of a fashionisita but am trying to branch out and wear more than just my PJs. Some clothing items I have been loving this summer strangly is all about S H O E S! I have a few pairs I wanna brag on.

Black and white checkered vans… I’m obbsessed. They are the perect slip on sneaker to spice up a basic outfit, they are great of traveling and days spent in the airport, I’ve worn them on every road trip I’ve taken this summer, AND they’re comfy! You honesly can’t ask for a better shoe.


My new gym shoes! A few weeks back I finally bought some new workout shoes after THREE years! I can’t believe I waited so long but have been loving them! They are super basic but I love that because it matches everything! I am so picky on how my sneakers look on my feet and I couldn’t be more pleased with what I purchased!

And lastly, my black slip on sandals I’ve been wearing literally every day. I wanted a very simple black shoe for the summer that would go with literally everything and be good for on the go. I ordered these sandals from Forever 21 and was super nervous! I hate buying shoes online because you never know how they’ll fit. These were even more tricky because they’re a toe sandal… I was so worried my toe wouldn’t fit the shoe LOL. If you don’t know, I have a fat ass big toe. The universe was on my side because the sandals fit perfectly and I wear them at least one a day.

Last Christmas my sister bought me two face products from Sephora and I have LOVED them! The one I have been using multiple times a week is Zinc & Copper Mud Mask Purifying and Mattifying. I have been using it in the shower after I wash my face and it’s got such a cool and refreshing sensation to it, it leaves my skin feeling soft and deep cleaned!

My next, and definitely number one, fashion favorite is eye lash extentsions! I started getting lash extentions at the very end of April right before Andrew and I went to Yosemite and I haven’t stopped! (Until now while I let my lashes take a break before our biggest travel yet!!!!)


But really, I love love love having lashes. It makes me feel 10x more confident to roll out of bed and be ready to tackle my day! Before I got lash extentsions the only make up I wore was mascara anyway, so now I get to catch more ZZZ’s! The only downside to lash extentions is that I found it difficult to wash my face well without destorying my lashes and obviously the price. For good lashes it can cost you a pretty penny (and I’m cheap) but all in all, I think they are worth the money!

I have talked about this on my personal Facebook account a few times but I discovered this app called ‘Ibotta” this summer and have been loving it! It’s a free app you can download that helps you save money EASILY on item you already buy at the grocery story every week! It is so user friendly and easy to nanigate! I’ve already saved over $58 dollars by scanning my recipets! They have hundreds of different store with tons and tons of different options. Use my referral code “iteesve” to start earning cash back!


I hope you can take something positive away from today’s post! If you have been loving any of the same items as me, something similar, or something totally different LET ME KNOW! I’d love to chat about things we have in common or learn more about some things I need to try out! Tune in for a Fall 2018 Must-Haves & Favorites in a couple of months!
