Eco friendly products have been around for a while and still I have yet to try any. Similar to other popular items, there always seems to be a settle label “tax”. For instance, items that never had any gluten are suddenly sporting a gluten free sticker and a shiny new price tag. All the fashion trends seem to follow a similar formation of how to raise prices when the demands rises to increase it’s business.
Magazines, Pinterest, YouTube, and even the various people we cross paths with on the street spark inspiration for new trends, different styles and all things fashion. Recently, it has been brought to my attention that several famous youtubers and social media gurus spoke up about the fact that they buy items simply to use them as content. Fashion hauls are a huge part of this massive consumer issue of want, want, NEED. Titles such as “spending too much at Target” or “massive summer hauls” draw in a large crowd but why?
Yes, I’m going to be completely stereotypical for this Father’s Day D.I.Y. only because this is something mine would actually use. No matter if you make this for dad or for yourself, it is very affordable. I came across this idea when I was searching for a tool roll store after store and kept coming out empty handed.
Recently, I have been obsessed with shopping the clothing section at Costco. The deals are unbelievable but what about the quality overall? Whenever you shop no matter what the price tag says, there are a few things to check to make sure the tag matches the item’s quality worth. The type of material, origin it was made in, stitching and dying process all contribute to the actual garment’s quality rather than just paying for the brand itself.
As a member of the curly hair club I wanted to share with you five trendy hairstyles. These will all work no matter what your hair type is however, I am trying them all out on my natural curly hair. All of these styles were experimented on day two hair. Dirty hair is easier to work with than day one when it comes to styling at least. All of these looks are practical since each one keeps your hair out of your face while still being effortlessly on trend.
Follow the Tutorial Below to each Hairstyle

Once the page loaded and all my favorite items from the Vineyard Vines Target Collab were sold out of, literally every size, I debated if it was even worth it to drive down to the store before the doors opened. Since most youtubers had their videos posted within hours of stores opening I wanted to add in my thoughts as to why a business as large as Target would make the “mistake” of running out of product that is clearly in demand.
Next week is Mother’s Day lovelies so start brainstorming now! There are so many options when it comes to gift giving for mother’s. Seize the day and show your mother how much you love her. Also do not forget to show your appreciation to the fellow ladies in your life who also fulfill a motherly role, grandmas, aunts, cousins, etc.
Not sure where to start with gift giving or the thought of giving something in your budget seems inadequate? Every time I ask she tells me peace and tranquility. Since they don’t sell that anywhere she’s still waiting on that one. My advice is to show her time, effort, and listening more than your wallet. Whatever your talent is, use it to show an added touch of affection. Show her you are listening by getting her something she’s been talking about for awhile.
The Basket: Can’t decide what to get? Go from the gift basket and stuff it with all of her favorite things.
Cook for the Family: Yes, make mom breakfast in bed, but if she usually makes the whole family breakfast in the morning then take on that task for her. Don’t forget to clean up as you go whatever you do, do not give her the gift of a messy kitchen.
Create something: Those macaroni crafts she kept from you as a child still tug on the heart strings but step up your game a bit. If you are an artist draw something and then frame it. Handy with tools? Fix something, make a piece of furniture, or even a cutting board. Make it useful.
Listening: Buy her something she has been wanting: a book, movie, dress, pair of shoes. Has she been talking about wanting to try a new hobby? Help her get started with some materials for it.
A Date Night: Costco has many deals including a pretty wide selection of gift card options at a discounted rate from movie tickets to restaurants. Mom not the dinner and movie type, then head to Groupon for a message, adventure or creative options. This can be just the two of you or for her to use on a romantic date night, you choose.
