FITNESS & LIFESTYLE FAVORITES (SEPTEMBER)

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

 


Happy Wednesday friends!

I haven't done a fitness related post in so long, so it was about time! 

I have a few items I wanted to share that are my go-to favorites! These are things that I"m currently loving too! 

Okay so starting off with this water bottle (available here) I picked it up at target, and it was on sale for $10! I keeps my water cold for a full 8 hours! I was pretty impressed with it and it also comes in a couple of other colors and patterns!

I love bringing my lunch to work, I know I know, weird right! ha But really, it makes me feel so idk accomplished and healthy . This lunch bag (available here) is one of my favorites! Also comes in a few other patterns. This one came with 6 smaller containers which is always a plus! It's so spacious and I can literally pack my breakfast, lunch & snacks in it. 

Y'all have heard me talk about these shorts (available here) before, they're currently in stock. I wear this to workout, lounge around, and run errands! I wear a size small and they fit great! I have them in black, grey & lavender! Perfect staple item! 

These two items, I literally cannot live without. These bands (available here) come in a pack of 4 and under $20! I shared a workout using just a band, you can check it out here. I'm not kidding when I tell you I use them every single day. Also these 
Celsius drinks (available here) are so dang good! I use them more as a pre workout type of thing and it works great for me! My favorite flavor is watermelon and the orange! If you try them out let me know how you like them! 

I picked these shorts (available here)up at Burkes Outlet! I heard this brand is so good, and they were not lying! They fit like a freaking glove! 

And finally, the item I get asked about majority of the time, what sports bras do I use? These are it girlfriend! They're the Avia brand from Walmart! They range from $10-$12! I wear my true size! Now I will tell you, if you have more to work with up there, these may not be for you lol I'm a 34b and they fit me great but I personally feel like I don't have much to work with lol 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! If you try any of the items I shared let me know! Thank you guys for always supporting me, and for continuing to support my blog!

THE PERFECT FALL BABYDOLL BLOUSE + OUTFIT

Thursday, September 3, 2020

 






Happy Thursday friends!

I feel like this week definitely flew by! Woke up a few extra mins early to be able to get this post up and lemme tell ya...those 5 mins were life changing lol no but really, I love how much I can get done in the mornings. It makes me feel so accomplished! 

I know what you're thinking it's too soon for Fall! But I just can't help myself! I love Fall! But I don't love pumpkin spice anything haha 

I put together this outfit that is perfect for Fall! If you live in Texas this is also great because let's be honest, it doesn't really cool down till about November lol 

When I first laid eyes on this baby doll top I was in love (available here). I'm wearing a small and I absolutely love the loose fit of it, it also comes in several other colors too! You can shop all the Pink Lily things HERE 

My wedges are a couple of years old but you can find a similar pair here

So now this mama is about to go get ready for work and get Julian ready for school. 

Also if you're wondering kindergarten is going pretty great!

"OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!"-DR. SEUSS

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

 


Happy Wednesday friends! 

I am sitting at the kitchen table drinking some coffee & eating a breakfast sandwich. Julian starts kindergarten and my emotions all over the place. 

I don't know where the post will go, but I have things to say and my guts to spill so here we go...

So last night I was laying in bed with my boy and wow, I just can't believe he is off to kindergarten, I mean really, where did the time go? I still remember the first time I laid eyes on that sweet face, that's a different kind of love. The first time he said "mama", his first steps, his first cuss word (haha). As a mom, I think I can speak for all of us, why can't we just keep them in a bubble!! Protect them from all the evil, all the heart breaks, everything. 

Another thought that went thru my mind was, isn't so, idk crazy? ironic?, fascinating? that when we were younger our parents really did do their absolute best to give us a better life than they had. They struggled but always found a way, and we're doing the exact same thing. Like when you had kids you probably told yourself "oh I'm never going to let my kids go through that", but each generation is going to have their fair share of struggles & tragedies. 

I shared this on my personal FB page, but we were so grateful to be able to buy all of Julian's school supplies. When my husband and I started kindergarten, I think we were sent to school with one pencil and a notebook, because that's all our parents could afford. 

I don't ever hold a grudge but there were times I wished my parents were involved in my school more, but for obvious reasons they couldn't. Again, I am feel so dang grateful that I can do that for Julian. That there is no language barrier, that I can be at his school programs, games, all those things. 

Although, I want to cry and just wish my baby would stay a baby, I feel proud. He really is such a wonderful little boy. His manners (sometimes) are out of this world. He has such a big and kind heart and I know he is going to be great! 

Told you I didn't know where this post would go, I mean clearly my emotions all over the place lol 

I hope you enjoyed this quick coffee talk, thank you guys for continuing to support my blog! It truly means the world! 



WHITE DENIM FOR SUMMER

Friday, July 17, 2020








Happy Friday friends!

Hello, hello!

It is finally Friday and let me tell ya it definitely feels like a Monday! haha Work has been pretty busy but I love the rush! 

Today I'm bringing you guys a SUPER affordable outfit! This whole is outfit is right under $50! 

I bought this top (available here) at Walmart a couple of weeks ago and OMG it's so soft! I love the it's a bit on the longer side so you can definitely wear it with leggings if you'd like! It also comes in a few other colors and it's true to size. 

Listen!!! I needed a good & affordable pair of white jeans and these are it! Only $20 and the fit is so good. I don't like buying white jeans that are a bit on the pricier side because, well I get them dirty so so fast! lol These are from the Sofia Vergara collection at Walmart, and I'm definitely going to buy another pair. 

My mules are from Justfab, you guys know Justfab is my jam! I scored these on sale for $15! We love a good sale around here!

Okay so I hope you guys enjoyed this outfit post! Send me pics if you guys purchase any of these items! 

Now onto some heavy stuff, are you guys sending your children to school? 

I'm so unsure of what to do, part of me wants to send him but the other part doesn't! I feel like whatever we decide to do, we're going to be judged. 

I can't wait for this season of life to get better! Anyone else?

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

CURRENT BEAUTY FAVES! + NEW FAVORITE FOUNDATION!

Tuesday, July 7, 2020


Happy Tuesday girlfriends! 

I hope you all had a wonderful day! 

Today I'm quickly sharing some of my current beauty favorites! These products have been my go to! 

I hope you all enjoy! 



TULA SUNSCREEN: So I purchased this with the Tula X Whitney Simmons kit,  and it has easily become my favorite face product! I use it every morning after I wash & moisturize my face. It protects my skin from the sun, and gives me such a nice glow without looking greasy lol. It does have a slight sunscreen smell but nothing over powering. If you're needing something to just throw on in the mornings to give you a glow and even out your skin tone this is the product! 

TULA MILK CLEANSER: Another new item that I've been loving! This is also part of my morning skincare routine! I wash my face with this cleanser, and it leaves my face so soft! Literally like a baby's bum! I've also noticed my skin has been looking so much better with this cleanser + sunscreen! 

TULA PRIMER:  Also part of my skincare, I haven't worn this with makeup, I've only used it on its own, AND GIRL let me tell ya! You'd think I have zero pores! LOVE LOVE this stuff! 

THAYERS TONER:  I finally got my hands on this toner! SO affordable ($10) and SO dang good! I had a couple of "scars" on my forehead from where I picked at a couple of pimples (don't judge lol) and I'm not kidding you, after I used this toner a couple of times, those scars were noticeably lighter! THIS IS A MUST HAVE, if you're looking to add a toner to your skincare routine! 

JUVIA'S PLACE FOUNDATION:  OMG this foundation y'all!!!!! I cannot say enough good things about it! The shade range is PHENOMENAL! The coverage is even better! You only need a small amount, it is a bit thick but again you really don't need too much product! I've been wearing it in 95 degree weather and it did not move! 

JUVIA'S PLACE CONCEALER:  The concealer is just as good as the foundation! So creamy, full coverage, and hydrating! I have literally fallen in love with Juvia's place products! 

BH COSMETICS HIGHLIGHT & BLUSH PALETTE:  If you're similar to my skin tone or more on the deep side, do yourself a favor and get this palette! This palette is soo just rich and beautiful! The colors pair well with my skin tone and it has been my go to palette the last couple of weeks! And so affordable! 

COLOUR POP NUDE EYESHADOW PALETTE: Okay, so if you know me, you know when it comes to eyeshadow I stick to my neutrals, bronze and golds! lol Sister cannot work with colors, my blending is not all there! THIS palette is perfection! It has the perfect colors to create a simple go to look & for more glam too!

Wednesday, May 27, 2020






Happy Wednesday friends!

It's been a slow day today and I am grateful!

Incase you missed it! This mama has a new job! Feeling so thankful and feels great to be able to help out! 

So I'm on my lunch break and have to make this quick lol But I wanted to share this outfit with y'all because it's such a classic spring look and everything is, of course, affordable! 

I love love how chic this top (available here) is! Back in the day I use to be obsessed with peplum and I'm right back at it lol It would also be so gorgeous pair with some denim or white shorts! 

Okay so these jeans (available here) are so flattering! I was out taking these photos and ripped a small little hole in mine, but nothing that can't be fixed! I was in a rush and just yanked them on so yeah...oops lol Anyway they're from the Sofia Vergara collection from Walmart! This is my first pair from here and definitely won't be the last! 

I hope you guys have a wonderful day!

MOTHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS

Tuesday, April 28, 2020



Happy Tuesday friends! 

I quickly wanted to share some great gift ideas for Mother's Day! 


- MEMORY FOAM SNEAKERS ($20): If you or your mom work long hours and are always on your feet, these sneakers are not only so cute but so comfortable! 

- HANDWRITING BRACELET ($42): I love love how unique this bracelet is! You can have your little one write their name and then upload the picture and it will be printed on this bracelet! 

-MONOGRAMMED HANDBAG ($50): I bought this for myself, and I loved it! It's super spacious so could also be used as a diaper bag!

-PERSONALIZED APRON ($21): My mom LOVES to wear aprons, especially when she makes tamales so this is PERFECT for her! There's a space where you can type what you want the apron to say, so if your mom or grandma doesn't speak English you can write something in Spanish, which I think makes this even more special! 

-YETI RAMBLER/MUG ($24)- If you know of a new mom or soon to be mom GET THEM THIS! I think we can all agree it would be nice to drink hot coffee lol and as a mom it's not always like that! 

-PHOTO CUP ($10): You literally cannot go wrong with this gift! 

-PERSONALIZED SMALL COOLER ($35): My mom works long hours and she always packs her lunch, I love the size of this one and how spacious it is!

SNAKE PRINT KIMONO OOTD + WHAT'S NEXT AFTER QUARANTINE?

Wednesday, April 22, 2020







OUTFIT DETAILS [ Snake print kimono *available here*, Ribbed bodysuit (sold out) other options *available here* & *here*, High rise jeans *available here*, Similar nude heels *available here*]

Happy Wednesday friends!

I have been dying to share this outfit with you guys! I feel like I say that every time I publish an outfit post lol But seriously this one is good! 

This is definitely going to be the outfit I wear on our first post quarantine outing! Because we all have our outfits ready right? ha 

This kimono (available here) is so dang good & under $15! Insane, you can use the link I provided to see if it's in stock at Walmart near you. I know most of us aren't going out only for essentials so I'm also linking a similar one HERE & HERE. Also linking two other options for this ribbed bodysuit. Mine is sold out but these two have amazing reviews are, of course, affordable. 

I've mentioned these jeans (available here) before but I got them when I was in NC and love love them. They are super high rise so mom friendly. I should have sized down one because they sit right at my waist. But aside from that, they are phenomenal and flattering! 

Seriously so obsessed with this outfit! I hope you guys enjoy it!

Okay so as bad as this may sound I try to stay away from watching the news because it is just so dang depressing! But I think some states are talking about reopening soon, and I have mixed emotions about this, which we are not going to get into. But I did want to share my thoughts on one thing. What's next after quarantine? I can only speak for myself but before all this happened, my life was a hot mess, I was a hot mess. I felt like this time that I've been at home, I had time to think about what I wanted in my life, and for my son. I realized there is so so much that I want to do still. With all the uncertainty that surrounds us, I kept thinking what if "it was my time to go", "what if I get the virus & I don't make it?". I know those thoughts are dark but it was what I was thinking. I kept thinking if you die bc of this virus, would you die happy? Would you be okay knowing that you didn't live your life like you wanted? Would you be at ease knowing you didn't do all the things you wanted to do? All the places you wanted to travel but didn't? 

I mean just so many thoughts were going through my head. And I realized, that WOW, I have not "lived". I have things on my bucket list, that have been sitting there for years and I haven't made the EFFORT to cross any of them off. I've just settled. 

So I can really say this quarantine did me good, it did my mind & soul good. Don't get me wrong I was going a little crazy there for a minute but overall, just slowing down in life and realizing what I want in life has turned the "switch" for me! It's a beautiful thing really! So to answer the question...what's next after quarantine? I hope and pray that this world is a much better place. I hope and pray that I accomplish all the things that I set my mind to. I hope and pray that I am able to travel with the people I love. I will no longer take the "little things" for granted, ever. I will enjoy every second with my family. I will try my best to never complain about a packed restaurant, or a long line at the store. I will never take for granted a Sunday at church, and finally I will remember to pray to God even when things are good, not only when they're bad. 

What would you take away from this quarantine?

AT HOME FULL BODY WORKOUT

Monday, April 20, 2020

Happy Monday friends!

How was your weekend? Ours was pretty chill, like it has been for the past couple of months lol 

Today is usually my "get all the blogging things" done day lol so that's what we're up to today. 

I haven't shared a workout post with y'all in a few months so it was time to do that. 

As you can tell by the title this is a at home workout, if you don't have dumbbells feel free to use water bottles, your kid, your cat, just about anything you can find. Or you don't have to use any weight at all. 

Okay sooo...

Usually my workout format is do 5 exercises and repeat the whole workout 3 times. I've changed things up a bit this time around and we have a total of 10 exercises, do each one for 30 seconds, rest for 10 seconds and move on to the next exercise. You will repeat the workout 3 times. And if you ain't sweating by the time you're done than I'll have to up my game for next time lol 



Okay so by the end you should feel a little something like this! lol

I hope you guys enjoy and if you give this workout a go, let me know you like it! Thank you so much for supporting my blog!

That is all! Thank you!

Happy Thursday friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful day! Meant to publish this blog post yesterday but I was out doing our weekly grocery trip! I finally found toilet paper so that was great! haha They also removed the limit on how much water you can buy so I'm hoping that's a sign that things are slowly getting better.

I have been dying to share this  gorgeous top with you guys! It's from one of my favorites, Threads Boutique! I made a trip last month and they are currently having 30% off + free shipping! You can use code "Rosa30" at checkout! I snagged a few other pieces that I'll be sharing next week. 

I'm wearing a small in this top and I love how soft and loose fitting it is! It would also pair so good with leggings. And no worries, it's long enough to cover your booty girl! And can we talk about the ruffle sleeves...I'm a sucker for ruffles! 

I paired it with these American Eagle jeans that I've had for a few years now, they're not longer available but I'm linking a similar pair (available here). These espadrilles are also from Threads but sold out , I was able to find them here, I'm wearing my true size, 6. 

And that is a wrap for today's post, if there is any item that you see here or any questions, please feel free to message me! Or leave me a comment, I love chatting you guys! 

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and THANK YOU so much for continuing to support me!

WHAT'S IN MY AMAZON CART

Monday, April 13, 2020


Happy Monday friends! 

Easter was a little different this year but nonetheless it was great! 

Julian and I are currently watching Onward for the hundredth time! ha Have you watched it? It is such a sweet movie! And of course Julian now thinks he's a wizard! 

I have all these things currently sitting in my Amazon cart, so I thought I would share, I haven't done these types of posts in a while. 

I went ahead and ordered these shower headbands (available here) ! I was in such need of these, especially now that I'm only washing my hair twice a week. Also planning to use them when I do my makeup. I ALWAYS get makeup all over my hair. 

This fan (available here) is a must for me! I've seen a lot of bloggers use it to help set their makeup, but I'm using it as the real deal lol Y'all know I sweat so bad so I will need this for summer! 

Also wanted to mention these ear buds (available here), if you have these let me know how you like them! The reviews are great and I really don't see myself biting the bullet and ordering the air pods! I lose things so easily and wouldn't trust myself with them! These amazon ear buds are under $30! 

Also sharing other items that I'll be purchasing! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and find something you like! As always thank you so much for stopping by and for supporting my blog! 

See you Wednesday!

SPRING OUTFIT + THE MOST FLATTERING MOM JEANS!

Wednesday, April 8, 2020






Happy Wednesday friends! 

I took a bit of time off once this whole COVID thing happened because it was just idk such a weird time and still is. 

But what a better way to come back than to share a super affordable outfit featuring the most flattering jeans EVER! 

I linking a similar tee (available here) ! Mine is unfortunately sold out! Both tees are only $10. The one I'm wearing has a ribbed detail that I love! I'm wearing a small. 

Now onto the star of the show...these jeans y'all (available here)! Snag them up now! Totally kidding, but really they are so great! I don't think I've ever tried a "mom jean" that I love, or that's flattering on me. A bunch of times I feel like my bottom just looks a bit saggy, and I personally don't like that look lol 

I'm wearing a size 0 in these so I'd recommend sizing down one or stay true to your size. I'm typically a size 1. I did try the 00 and it fit but I didn't have room to eat a slice of pizza lol 

Also they are somewhat petite friendly, I'm 4'11 and I only have to roll them up once which if you're short you know that's a win! ha The best part is they're only $22! Tempted to snag up another pair just to have as a back up! 
-
-

Before I end this post...how are you guys doing? How are you holding up? 

I'm use to being home all the time but there's something about being told to stay home ya know lol I miss taking trips to Starbucks and roaming the aisles of Target. I miss taking my son to the park and then Mcdonald's. I miss Sunday's at church. You don't realize how much those "little things" really mean to you. 

If there's one thing I've learned from this whole situation is I won't ever take the "little things" for granted EVER AGAIN! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post & thank you so much for sticking by me! 

Talk to you soon!

TARGET TRY ON (SPRING FINDS UNDER $30)

Monday, March 9, 2020

OUTFIT DETAILS: MULTICOLORED JUMPSUIT (XS) 





Happy Monday friends!

I have been on the struggle but the past 2 days! I absolutely love this time change but it's taking me a bit to get use too! On the bright side my kid has been sleeping in! Yesterday he woke up at ten!! And so far it's nine and he is still asleep!

This is a big deal! If you know my child, you know he is such an early bird! 

I took a quick trip to Target the other day and found some cute Spring pieces! I love everything and anything floral for spring and of course bright! 

Okay so lets start with this cute multicolored jumpsuit (available here) I am wearing an XS and fits perfectly! I always have trouble with jumpsuits because I am so tiny lol but this one is a good one! It doesn't have much of a stretch but I can tell that it gets loose throughout the day, if that makes sense. 

I loved this wrap dress (available here) ! Usually with the "Xhilaration" collection I always have to do a XS. The only thing with this dress is that at breast area it just droops on me. I wasn't gifted when it comes to the "girls" so if you've been blessed with some lol than this dress would look phenomenal on you!

I love a good basic dress! This lavender one is only $12 (available here)! Insane I know! I'm wearing a SM. It's not to tight on the body but not loose, I love the length, and can we talk about the color! 

Another jumpsuit that is on my wishlist! (available here) I'm wearing an XS on this one and y'all this is one is perfect! I love the fabric, the fit, it has pockets and it's lightweight! I mean it's perfect!

I wasn't too fond of this dress, it's gorgeous but I feel like it's not flattering on me at all (available here)! Still a cute dress!

OUTFIT DETAILS: GRAPHIC TEE (SM) 

OUTFIT DETAILS: POW-HER-FUL TEE (SM)



OUTFIT DETAILS: ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT (SM)

Happy Wednesday friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful day! 

I made a quick trip to Walmart today and wanted to share some cute tees that I found! I don't know about anyone else but I love me some tees! So comfy and can style them so many different ways! 

Before we get into that though I wanted to mention that they had a huge clearance section for kids winter clothing! I bought Julian a cute sherpa pullover about 3 months ago for $10 and it was on sale for $3! Perfect time to stock up! 

Okay so all these tees were only $9! I have provided links for them under the image, where it has "outfit details". 

These (available here) bermuda shorts are so good! Under $15! They come in a few other washes, if your kid plays sports during the Spring or Summer, these would be so cute! Paired with a tee or even a cute tank! I love that they have great coverage, of course, but aren't too, idk boring lol 

Y'all!!! When I saw these slippers I literally squealed!!!! They are only $10! I mean they were calling my name for sure! (available here

Lastly this swimsuit! I'm wearing a small and only $20 (available here)! It is so flattering and perfect for all my mamas out there, or if you like more booty coverage! Because let me tell ya, swimsuits now a days provide little to no coverage! lol Definitely snagging this up! 

I hope you guys enjoyed this quick post!
