Face Care Is Self Care

Pictured are the four items I use on my face.

Pictured are the four items I use on my face.

Hey Babes,

I don’t have the perfect skin at all nor do I have tons of money to invest in weekly facials and expensive face cleansers and oils. However, for the past couple of weeks I’ve been using these four products in heavy rotation and my skin has become smoother and brighter. Today I want to share with you my super easy daily facial care routine, where I purchased my items and the cost.

Facial Care Routine Morning & Night

  1. Cleanse face with Biore’ Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleansing

  2. With a cotton ball I rub Elizabeth Arden’s Toner all around face and neck

  3. Lastly I rub Ava’s Youth Activator Vitamin C

My night routine is very similar to my morning routine. The only thing I do different is step #3. Instead of rubbing Vitamin C - I rub Ava’s Youth Cocktail Vitamin A,E,F. For my skin I’ve found that putting too many oils on at one time irritates my face. Therefore I use one serum in the morning and the other at night.

Biore’ Charcoal Acne Clearing Cleansing can be found at any drugstore such as Walmart, Walgreens or CVS. My toner and face serums were purchased at Ross. Ross is a clothing store that sells more than just clothes and the best thing about it is everything is much cheaper. But if you don’t have a Ross near you, no worries - visit your nearest TJ Maxx. They always have a great selection of inexpensive oils and serums.

Biore’- $5

Toner- $5.99

Vitamin C- $5.99

Vitamin A,E,F- $5.99

Tricks & Tips- I stopped buying makeup wipes. YES! You read that right. For me, wiping off my makeup with a wipe made me so lazy. At night that’s all I would do because I thought it was sufficient. But unfortunately it’s not. As a result, not having wipes caused me to fully wash and cleanse my face. Once I become more disciplined and more invested then I will add back the wipes. LOL

How to Turn Men Shorts... Fashionable!

Hey Babe,

During my weekly thrift store shopping -I always look through the men’s section because I absolutely love oversized clothing items. I found these $3.99 blue jean men shorts and knew they would be great for the spring and summer time. One of the main reason I fell in love with them because they were the perfect length and the perfect loose. I love dressing up for church and I also love dressing down. So I knew these wouldn’t get too many side eyes from the Mother Board.

Here are the steps to making men jean shorts fashionable:

  1. Cut to your desire length

  2. Wash & dry them

  3. Rock em’

Cheapest Easter Outfits... EVER!

IMG_0611.jpg

Hey Babe,

Easter was this past Sunday and it was probably one of the best Resurrection Sunday’s that my family and I have had in a while. Not that the other Easter celebrations haven’t been amazing but this year was super relaxed, chilled, and cheap. I went to one store and found London’s dress and Braxton’s bowtie that he never wore *insert rolled eye emoji- But let’s not focus on the non worn bowtie. Let’s go back to the part where I only had to go to ONE store to fine their outfit! Yes, ONE. STORE. That saved a lot of time, stress… and gas. Can I get a amen from all of the Mommas out there?!

My pastel pant suit is from my favorite place, Salvation Army Family Store! I only paid nine dollars and some change and it was super comfortable and a banger! When trying the pant suit on I wasn’t really feeling it. I put the suit back and walked out. Put the key into the ignition, set in my car for 2 minutes. Turned the car off and went back into the store to purchase the suit. I am so happy that I did or I would have regretted it. & now I can’t wait to wear it again.

London’s dress was only $15 and is from Kid to Kid and hair is inspired by the Mother of Dragons… Daenerys Targaryen. (Game of Thrones for any of my non GoT people)


Check out these goofy pictures with my favorite son! Sometimes you just have to follow their lead…


London told me that she would only take a picture with me if I pick her up… so I picked her up. I think sometime she misses being the baby. I miss her being a baby as well…


& that is how you kill Easter 2019!! Until next year, Babes!

Check His Closet, Sis!

Yes, my Husband ‘s name in my phone is “My Big Daddy” and I’m never changing it. ((LOL)) Now that that is out of the way… I constantly get messages like this from my Husband because I am constantly in his closet. Whenever I can’t find anything to wear I head straight to his closet and majority of the time I find something that I absolutely love. Currently “oversized” clothing items are in so before you go out and buy something check his side of the closet, Sis. You may just find your next bomb outfit.

See how I styled my Hubby’s suit jacket down below!!

What I'm Wearing...

Suit Jacket- Hubby’s Suit Jacket 
Mom Jeans- Target
Shirt- H&M

I Bought My Very First Wig!

I purchased my very first wig over the weekend and let me just say I’m ready to go back and purchased another one! Here is my question to you. Yes, YOU! WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME ABOOUT WIGS MUCH SOONER?! Like OMG, this is the best thing ever next to my new found love, Air Fryer. They’re super easy to wear and if you’re wanting to switch up your look this route and so efficient without permanently doing anything. I literally woke my Husband up and told him that he had a new wife for the day. I’m not sure if he’s really feeling “Cher”… that’s her name but I can’t worry about it because I’m in love with her and he’ll just have to accept her. Feel me?!
