Favorite TV Shows.

Hello my Beautifuls! I hope you all are doing fantastic! We are half way done with the week! Yasss! Well, for me my work week just started. Have I mentioned I absolutely love my job. If I didn’t, know you now. The only reason I look forward to the actual weekend is to spend time with my handsome hubby and to get a little break from changing a few diapers.

Having such a long weekend and being on a break from school means I have some extra time to watch my favorite shows, obviously when I’m not watching Moana or Coco for the thousandth time. But, when my little squishy goes to down a for a nap I have an hour to two hours of having the tv to myself. It’s awesome. I’ve obviously watched gossip girl about a million times, but I mean it’s gossip girl! Who can get tired of seeing Blair and Chucks become relationship goals. Since I have watching gossip girl so many times I thought it was time to branch out and find new shows. My guilty pleasure are reality shows, this being said my all time favs are Housewives of Beverly Hills and Keeping up with the Kardashian’s. I can get sucked into these shows so fast it’s crazy.

Besides reality shows, I have a deep love for crime shows such as criminal minds and CSI: Miami. At this moment, my husband and I are binge watching NCIS in Netflix. It’s about the only show we both like and can watch together. Unlike criminal minds and CSI, NCIS solves crimes within the navy and marine corps. It is insane, this show has me really roped in. If y’all are into crime shows. I highly recommend this show.

And lastly my recent favorite show called American Housewife. Y’all this is the most funniest and realistic view into being mother. If y’all want a good laugh and are tired of seeing all these perfect mommy’s, this is the show for you. It is okay to be an okay mom sometimes. We have bad days. We can’t always be perfect and have the perfect life. I’m so happy that they have a show that presents a family that is normal and is proud of not being a stick figure mom who looks good in white jeans. (She makes fun of moms that wear white jeans in the show.) I highly recommend this show as well. You can watch all the episodes on Hulu.

March Favorites!

Hello My Beautifuls! I hope you all had a great Easter weekend! It was a gorgeous one here in Japan! The cherry blossoms are in full bloom and the weather is finally getting warmer. Thank God! Personally, I was over this winter. One of the reasons why is because, school was finally over… until the fall of course. I’m so ready for some spring and summer fun. Who is ready for some summer fun?

It has been a good minute since I’ve posted my interview with the Nette sisters. If you would like to go check it out go ahead and click on the link Sassy Sister’s. I’ve been awful with my posting schedule, but now that school is out, I hope I can get back on track. But, enough with my whining let’s get into the fun stuff!

Today, I’ll be bringing you my March favorites. I have everything from luxury, beauty, and home décor. I have been quite spoiled this month, thanks to my amazing and loving husband. He spoils me rotten that’s for sure. The first goodie I’ll be talking about was a little something from my hubby. I’ve had this on my wish list for a while, it being my Rosalie coin purse. I now have matching wallet for my Neverfull. It’s so freaking cute, it’s even hot stamped with my initials , I absolutely love it. I just love small wallets.

 

My second favorite has to do with my Neverfull bag, it is an organizer. I love my Neverfull, but it can get pretty packed, its in the name itself, Neverfull. This organizer has been a life saver. Thanks to my manager, who is the one that brought it to my attention. Not only does it keep my bag organized but it also protects my bag from getting dirty. Being a mommy a lot goes in my bag, whether I like it or not, so this organizer gives me peace of mind. You can find this pink organizer on Amazon.

 

Now on to some beauty favorites. I don’t have a lot of beauty favorites this month, but these are the few I have been wearing everyday in the month of March. The two lippie products are both from L’Oréal one is a pinky nude lipstick and the other is a pretty pink gloss. I wear them alone and together, either way they both look so pretty.

 

The last two beauty products are nail polishes. If y’all can’t tell by now I love pink and glitter. So, these nail polishes tie my two favorite things together.

And lastly, home décor. I have never had a table setting, but my manager is redoing her house and she inspired me to make my house look cute. My coworker and her were very generous to gift me the place mats, plates, the napkins, and some pretty kitchen towels to make my table look amazing. I got the napkin holders and matching salt and pepper shakers at the store on base. I’m obsessed! Thanks to the dollar store on crack here in Japan, I was able to get some things to make this flower holder. Yes, the flowers in there are fake. I can’t keep plants alive if my life depended on it, it’s very sad. But, I think it looks amazing either way.  I mean look how beautiful it looks!

Sassy Sister’s

Hello Beautifuls! It has been a hot minute since I have posted. What can I say? Life got to me. Between being a mommy, wife, student, and an employee, it has been quiet the ride. Now, I have always done school and worked full-time, but I didn’t have a toddler running around making leaving the house on time impossible or when you’re in the middle of writing an essay and he wants some a loving from mommy, making me lose my train of thought. But, I’m getting through it and I’m on my last week of school and I can’t wait. I will be taking a little time off, because I don’t want this stress while visiting my family in Florida.

But, enough of my struggles let’s get into this special post. This is my second feature on my blog, if you would like to check out my last feature go ahead click on the link Double The Cuteness. It is about my cousin and her life with twin boys. This time I got the privilege to interview these three amazing, sassy, and fashionista sisters, The Nettes Make sure you all check out their blog, its amazing, if you’re a shopaholic, you’ll love their blog for sure!

img_7027-1

These three awesome sisters names are Raenette, Antionette, and Anjanette. I just love their names, they are basically the southern version of the Kardashians. Haha! I’m very happy they took out some time out of their busy schedules and shopping trips to answer a few questions I had.

Q1: When did y’all start blogging?

A: I guess by now you know we started our blog in November but didn’t shout it to the world until December.

Q2: Why did y’all decide to start your blog?

Raenette: The blog was really my sister Antoinette’s idea. She was always looking at different blogs & she said, “hey, we can do as good as these chicks” and here we are! Lol! Plus, most blogs are geared towards younger folks & we wanted to show folks that you can look stylish no matter the age. 

Antionette: We started the Blog because we thought it would be a fun way to share our love of fashion and shopping with others. We have always loved putting outfits together, so we figured maybe we could make a go of it. We also wanted to show 50+ women that they can still look hot and stylish and not spend a fortune. 

Anjanette: Started it bc we wanted to share our love of fashion with others. And to let everyone know that it’s not hard or really that time-consuming to look pulled together.

Q3: What is it about fashion that y’all like?

Raenette: I like fashion because it lets me express myself in many different ways. I can’t draw or paint or sew or play an instrument so, fashion is my artistic outlet. What you may be hiding on the inside, you can express through clothes & accessories.

Antionette: I love the way an outfit can express how you’re feeling on any given day. An outfit can show the world “Hey, I’m feeling super sexy today”. Or “Hey, I’m feeling Casual today”. I definitely use fashion to express myself.

Anjanette: What I like about fashion is that it is a creative outlet. It’s a way to stand out and make a statement.

Q4: Who is the inspiration for your style:

Raenette: My mama was my #1 fashion inspiration. When I was younger I used to get a lot of inspiration from magazines & tv. Now, I most of my inspiration comes from friends & family & the general public. 

Antionette: My main fashion inspiration will always be my Mama. I too love and admire Victoria Beckham. She’s so classic and badass at the same time. I have always loved Audrey Hepburn as well. 

Anjanette: Fashion inspiration of course was Mama and I love Victoria Beckham. Classic.

Q5: Who is the more stylish sister?

Raenette: Anjanette is the biggest risk taker for sure. We’re all fashionable in our own way. I guess it’s in the eye of the beholder.

Antionette: Anjanette is definitely the most daring when it comes to fashion. We are all fashion divas! Lol

Anjanette: And we ALL know which sister is the most stylish!! ME!!! Lol

I’m so happy I got to interview these ladies, they sure are a hoot and most importantly extremely inspirational! They are amazing in every way and are kicking ass in fashion and in life. They are an example that there is no limit in what you can do no matter what size, age, or color! They make me wish I had sisters to go on shopping adventures and steal each others clothes. They are sister goals! Thank you dolls for being a guest on my blog! Make sure you follow their blog Nothing But Nette.

Mother’s Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Get Sick!

Hello beautifuls! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. It has been a rough couple weeks for me and Jason. For the past couple weeks we have been sick, Jason with an ear infection and I with the most annoying and longest cold ever! Mom’s should not be allowed to get sick! Mom’s take forever to get better due to the fact that we don’t stop. We can’t just sleep in and stay in bed all day. I’m lucky enough to have a toddler that likes to sleep in until 9am, sometimes even later. Being sick wouldn’t have sucked as much if I didn’t have to take care of Jason, go to work, and do school work. I’m extremely lucky that my job was so understanding about me missing some days due to us being sick. I absolutely love my job and everyone I work with. As for…

Mother’s Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Get Sick!

Hello beautifuls! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here. It has been a rough couple weeks for me and Jason. For the past couple weeks we have been sick, Jason with an ear infection and I with the most annoying and longest cold ever! Mom’s should not be allowed to get sick! Mom’s take forever to get better due to the fact that we don’t stop. We can’t just sleep in and stay in bed all day. I’m lucky enough to have a toddler that likes to sleep in until 9am, sometimes even later. Being sick wouldn’t have sucked as much if I didn’t have to take care of Jason, go to work, and do school work. I’m extremely lucky that my job was so understanding about me missing some days due to us being sick. I absolutely love my job and everyone I work with. As for school, I will most likely be taking next semester off due to it getting on my nerves. I don’t like online classes at all. My procrastination has gotten the best of me once again. But, I have been able todo my assignments and get good grades. Just a few more weeks left. Thank God! Hopefully this will be a better week and stay tuned for my next post I will have some very special guests! Yay! Well, I hope y’all have a great week!

For all my mommy’s out there, what remedies do y’all take to feel better faster? What do y’all do to make your little one feel better? Let me know!

February Favorite & Giveaway.

Hey there gorgeous! Can y’all believe we are a week away to the end of this short month. So, today I will be talking my new monthly favorites, along with a GIVEAWAY! I’m so excited to be doing my first giveaway on my blog. Shopping is my favorite thing to do, so doing a giveaway gives me a reason to do so. Lol. SHH, don’t tell my hubby. Well, we are going to start of my favorites with something I got last weekend and has made my life so much easier and has prevented me from always loosing my keys. I am talking about my handy-dandy Louis Vuitton 4 Key Holder, this is seriously a game changer.

My following favorite are two pieces of jewelry I bought at this cute Japanese boutique. These pieces are very dainty and beautiful. They are rose gold, my favorite metal. I can wear the most simplest outfit and it can be pulled together with these pieces. The necklace has a small pearl with a tiny diamond, super pretty. The earrings are everything, the pearl goes under the ear and it is held by the tiny diamond, they absolutely gorgeous.

Now, onto my beauty favorites. I have not changed much in my makeup routine, so I do not have many beauty products this month. So, it has been really cold in Japan and I’ve had a cold, so needless to say my lips and hands have been through some rough times. I love a liquid lip, but they are really drying. These two sets from the body shop, have helped my poor chapped lips and dry hands. I mean they have been on the struggle bus. Not only do they work great but they smell amazing! I got one in mango and strawberry,  The NYX soft matte lip creams have been my holy grail this month, it still gives a matte lip without being too drying and being uncomfortable on the lips. Not to mention how affordable they are. These two lippies in Abu Dhabi and Cannes have been my most used.

I have been wanting to find a new scent, my ride or die perfume is Chanel Chance EAU VIVE. I love it, but I’ve been wanting to grow my perfume collection. So, I bought the YSL Black Opium in a travel size. I didn’t want to buy a full bottle, it’s not the same when you spritz a little in the store. I wanted to try it out and wore it through out the day. I am in LOVE with this scent, it smells sweet, but a little goes a long way. If you’re into sweet-smelling perfumes, this one is a hit in my book. DSC03518

These last two items are my favorite things to buy, which are tumblers and stationary. I can’t have enough mugs, water bottles, and tumblers. It’s an addiction. Who else has the same addiction? I can’t be the only one. This Kate Spade tumbler is so cute and girly. It makes drinking water a lot easier, but its most likely sweet tea in it. Lol. My other addiction is stationary and being in the country that is all about stationary, makes it a lot harder to stop. My favorite season is coming up, which is cherry blossom season. So, I had to buy this cute cherry blossom notepad. Its pink and pretty, it can’t get better than that.

Girly Day With Tay.

Hello Beautifuls! Today was a very much-needed girls day. It has been quite a while since I’ve gone out and did a little shopping without a toddler running around or a nagging husband telling me “hurry up”, “why are you taking so long?”. Today we shopped in peace, it was so nice. We stopped for some coffee at Starbucks, did a little shopping at H&M, went to Louis Vuitton for a little treat for the eyes and to reserve a little something I’ve been eyeing for a while, stopped at a little Luxury thrift store, and finished with some lunch. Even though we went to a lot of places, our mission today was Starbucks. Why, you may ask? Because here in Japan, Sakura season is about to start, which is the cherry blossom season. (this honestly is my favorite season).

Starbucks in Japan came out with a Sakura season collection, about the most beautiful collection ever. I don’t know about y’all ,but I love mugs and tumblers, so I had to get my hands on this pretty collection. I mean look how gorgeous and pink everything is. This is totally my type of esthetic.

The next stop was H&M. I just got a couple of things, it’s not like I can fit in a lot of their clothes. H&M already has sizing problems and being in Japan makes it even worse. But, I can still find some cute stuff that I can fit in. The struggle is real! Today, you will see a lot of pink. At H&M I got two shirts, a cardigan, and the cutest beret. Yes, they are in different shades of pink, I did say at the beginning of this year I wanted to add more pink in my wardrobe. The shirt is so comfy, it is supposed to be a shirt dress but my butt and hips do not allow it to be a dress shirt, so I’ll be wearing it with some leggings. The second shirt is flowy and gives me spring vibes, the sleeves are bell sleeves, which adds a little girly and dressy look to it. The cardigan can be used with anything and knowing me it’ll be worn a lot. It is very thin, so it can be worn during the spring without having a heat stroke. Lastly, the blush pink beret, this was something that I was uncertain on buying, but surprisingly was very cute on me.

The last stop was the luxury thrift store. Japan has the best thrift stores ever, especially when it come to finding luxury items. My friend Taylor is the one that opened my eyes to thrifting. I honestly never even stepped foot in a thrift store until I went with Taylor. I know that sounds snobby, but it just wasn’t my thing. Anyways, at this thrift store I got a Louis Vuitton 4 Key holder. I have been wanting this for while, but I always debated on whether I wanted to pay $200 for something my keys were going to scratch and be tossed around. But, I found one that is in great condition for $70! I mean that is a good amount of money being saved that can go towards something else. I was so happy I was able to find this. I know I will not be loosing my keys any more.
