Happy Monday & Insta Roundup!

Happy Monday and Halloween Week!

I saw A Star Is Born this weekend with my girlfriend Nikki and did some purging/ donating to the Veteran's of America with my wonderful Mom. Have you seen the movie? Lady GaGa & Bradley Cooper were both on fire - so hot and so talented. I am not dressing up for Halloween, but I cannot wait to stalk everyone's social media to see pictures of everyone and their kids' costumes!! It is so fun!

So obsessed with my new @handbaghanger - so perfect for organizing some of my bags inside my closet! Go to: & use code: “20%OFF” for a discount!

Instagram Lately: Shop the Looks

Happy Weekend! 

I am feeling a bit under the weather.. normal people sick, like I picked up a cold from somewhere. I am so careful with hand sanitizer all the time, but I guess it just happens! Especially since I have been trying to get out when I have energy, and I don't have a normal immune system. I also had my plasmapheresis treatment last week, so I am trying to catch up a little this weekend. I hope enjoy this little (long) IG Lately blog post! Here are the looks I have posted to my Instagram lately, with easy "shop the look" links. I hope you enjoy and are having a good weekend.

SoCal Fall Fashion: I decided to add a little bit of fall to my denim shorts yesterday. Exact sweater can be found HERE for only $20!

Pumpkin Patch Fun: My exact sweater can be found HERE, and this one is also only $20! The shoes I linked are exact and I am obsessed with them!

Distressed Denim & Faux Gucci Slides: Actual slides are an Amazon find HERE. Cannot beat the price! I keep wanting to buy them in black as well. They are comfy and a great quality. They ship from overseas, so give yourself a few weeks for shipping if you end up getting them.

Leopard Casual: Actual necklace is yet ANOTHER "look for less" I found on Amazon. It is a great Celine necklace dupe you can buy HERE.

Car Vibes: Actual sunglasses are a Celine dupe I found HERE for $11! Sweatshirt is currently in stock and is so comfy.

Friend Date: Saw Crazy Rich Asians and loved it! Found my exact shirt, jeans AND booties for you guys! 

LOVE Sweatshirt: Sold out of SOME sizes right now, but hopefully they will be restocking soon! Currently on sale for $15 - can't beat that.

Denim on Denim: Wore this to a lunch date with a friend and her new man! Couldn't find exact boots, but found some similar looks for you! Last Amazon look for less, this cute necklace can be found HERE.

Thanks for visiting my blog! Let me know what you have been up to! If you need me, I will be laying in bed watching EXTREMELY cheesy Fall Hallmark movies (which I love).



September Empties

It is that time again! September Empties! I used up a lot of beauty items last month - almost 20 items! I wanted to share the detz with you all! Check them out below.


  1. LANCOME Hypnose Drama Mascara - In color Black Noir, this was a sample I received with another Lancome purchase. I really liked it. 
  2. LOREAL Lash Primer - I am obsessed with using this before my mascara. It really helps thicken the look of your lashes. I have tried more expensive primers and this one for $8 is the best one I have found! 
  3. ENJOY Sulfate-Free Hydrating Shampoo - My favorite shampoo, recommended by my hair stylist. Also perfect for when I have tape-in hair extensions on! 
  4. Angel Perfume - by Thierry Mugler, I had this perfume for a long time and finally used it up.  This was like a ride or die in college for me, but the smell is a little strong for me now: chocolate, citrus, melon, peach, plum, vanilla, sandalwood and musk. I wouldn't get this again now, but I still do really love the scent and it has a lot of memories for me. 
  5. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer - I would definitely repurchase this, it really helps your eyeshadow stay put all day. 
  6. Almay Liquid Eyeliner - I love to have this $5 eyeliner as a backup to my more expensive ones. It is easy to use and has a nice color output - it is not too watery like some of the other cheaper options are. 
  7. NYX Matte Setting Spray - I like the Dewy version best, but I like to have this Matte version on hand too for a more glam look. I don't think you need an expensive setting spray - these NYX ones have a great price point and are amazing. 
  8. NYX Concealer Wand - This is a good dupe for more expensive concealers at a fraction of the price. I would definitely repurchase this. 
  9. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder - This is a holy grail product for me and so many other beauty lovers. It is totally worth the money and lasts forever. It is the perfect setting powder for your makeup, it feels light and soft. 
  10. NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker - Another dupe for more expensive liquid eyeliners that I like. I am a black eyeliner every day girl or my eyes look asleep, so I love trying and having different ones on hand. 
  11. Maybelline Micro Brow Pencil - This is a good cheaper dupe for the Anastasia Brow Pencil. I definitely need to repurchase this ASAP! You can get it at Ulta or a drugstore like CVS.
  12. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner - My favorite black eyeliner, I feel like I have this in my empties every month! Shows how much I love it. 
  13. Clarisonic Brush Head - Loved this brush head for my Clarisonic. I try to replace them when they start to feel dirty even after washing. 
  14. Makeup Forever Base Step 1 - This is a good matte primer that I would repurchase. 
  15. First Aid Beauty Coconut Primer - Love this primer too for more of a dewy finish. 
  16. Bumble & Bumble Invisible Oil Hair Conditioner - This was a good sample product to try. I liked it for frizzy hair days like in the summer.
  17. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant Revive Scent - I am trying to go more natural with my deodorant, but this is always good in a pinch and leaves no residue! 
  18. Kiehl's LIP BALM #1 - I love this classic lip balm, it is usually less than $10 and it is super moisturizing for fall! 
  19. Enjoy Hair Mask - I LOVE this and recently got the full size of it, which will probably last a long time! I love trying masks like this before purchasing full size.  

Hope you enjoyed my empties haul! 
What did you use up last month?



Shop PinkBlush Fall Clothing

TGIF Ya'll! I recently got 2 fall pieces from online boutique Shop PinkBlush that I wanted to share with you! 

You may have seen them featured on my Instagram in the past week. You can check out their site HERE. They are a really cool clothing company that targets women before, during and after pregnancy - or people who just love their clothes, like me! With the modern mother in mind, they provide looks that are stylish, trendy and affordable. They wanted to create clothing that women could wear time and time again. I think they succeeded. 

I love this Green Striped Long Sleeved Pocket Dress, seen below! You can shop it HERE, under the category of All Women's Dresses! This is made for women of all ages, and is perfect for before, during and after maternity because it is so comfy! It also comes in grey and burgundy. I styled it with a felt hat, matching over the knee boots, and a statement necklace - for a fun fall look. I am obsessed with the back detail, and who doesn't love pockets?

I also fell in LOVE with this Brown Leopard Elbow Knit Top - and now you can also get it with sequin elbows! Shop for it HERE! You can also get the version with no sequins in Mocha or Grey. I think this is perfect for transitioning into fall, I wore it out to dinner and got several compliments on it! People love the elbow detail and leopard print is IN right now! I love the rounded neckline and the lightweight feeling of the knit. I paired it with silver jewelry, black distressed denim jeans, and black suede over the knee boots. I felt pretty sassy! This also can be worn by anyone, including before, during, and after pregnancy, because it is a little bit oversized and so versatile.

Have a great weekend and happy shopping! 
Let me know if you pick anything up from Shop PinkBlush



Fall Decor & Halloween Party Invitations

I am so excited that summer is over and we can jump into FALL!!! HAPPY OCTOBER!  
I got my 2 big bins of Fall/ Halloween down the other day and decorated the dining room. 
There are pumpkins everywhere, orange accents, and I am ready to cook chili and wear a cardigan!

Now that we are all set up for the season, my Mom and I decided that we are going to get some our friends and neighbors together at her house for a Halloween Party.  
We will decorate pumpkins, eat some good food, and scary movies with everyone. 
I am so excited and already planning it! I found the perfect online customizable card company 
that will be making the invitations for us. A couple of examples are pictured below. 
I am obsessed, so I wanted to share with you, and I got a coupon code you can use to order your own!

You can check out the other Halloween invitation options here: crafty Halloween party invitations
It is super easy to make your own, and you get to instantly preview as you design, which I love. 
Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options. This is such a unique feature, AND they offer over 40 different envelope colors! 

You can order a custom printed sample of the actual invitation you designed so you can get it early and see exactly how it will print, as well as the paper quality before you place the final order. 
The samples I ordered came in a nice package in the mail, along with instructions on how to log in and order from my wish list. You also get a card with ALL the custom colors on it, so you can see how they print on the invitation and choose the colors you like best when you are customizing. 

I have never had a proper Halloween party, so I am excited for my friends and family to receive their custom invitations. Basic Invites also has beautiful customizable family Christmas cards and custom holiday photo cards that I will be ordering when Christmas rolls around! The quality of the paper is amazing. I used to work for a direct mail company, so I'm a paper nerd and these are SO GOOD! 

Right now Basic Invite is offering you 30% off 
your entire order with the coupon code: 


So, take advantage of that and ENJOY! 
Let me know what type of cards you end up buying!
