Hostess with the Mostest Gift Guide

I’m so excited to share my first of many gift guides with y’all this holiday season. I absolutely love buying gifts for friends and family so it makes me more than happy to share with you some of my favorite finds. I know a lot of people can get overwhelmed when it comes to gift shopping, my biggest advice is just remember it doesn’t have to be an expensive extravagant gift to be memorable. I think personal, unique and unexpected are the best ways to stand out and be remembered for your gift giving.

Holiday Living Room Decor

Tis’ the season y’all!! I was so very excited to get most of my holiday decor up over the weekend. With the house flood in September which left us with a gutted interior I was only able to decorate my front porch for fall so needless to say I was very much itching to pull out all our Christmas decor. Our kitchen is still not complete so I mainly focused on the living room. I still want to add some touches of fresh garland (I used my faux garland or now) along the mantle, doorways, and make wreaths for the windows. I just realized this post also serves as a living room remodel reveal too since I haven’t posted on it yet since we’ve gotten everything updated. The walls are still very bare because I’m waiting to hang anything until we get our new sectional (should be this week) which I am SO EXCITED about! I’ll have to do another post maybe after the holidays when the Christmas decor gets put up and the space is in its normal state. ANYWAYS, let’s get on to the holiday decor shall we!

Closet Room Update {Pax Wardrobe}

One positive thing about this flood remodel is it has given me the push to finally just do the things I’ve always wanted to do when it comes to organization and decorating. Being forced to clean out and get rid of all the junk I was hoarding was something I needed.  I ended up repainting my closet room ‘white dogwood’ by Sherwin Williams and convince Erick that I needed the Pax wardrobe system from IKEA.  With this new wardrobe I was able to eliminate the gold bookcase/shelves you’ll see in my ‘before’ pics below and all of the walnut wood stained shoe shelves I had too. I’m actually going to cut the long shoe shelves I had in half and paint them white and they will go on the wall where the gold clothing rack is now. Whatever shoes don’t fit I will just keep in the closet.

Friyay Favorites {Home Decor}

Hi Friends! Can you believe we’re nearing the end of October!?  The other day someone mentioned an event to me that’s taking place  in mid November and I thought to myself ‘oh that’s so far away I’ll have plenty of time to prepare’ um no, it’s literally in 3 weeks. It’s so true what they say, the days are long but the weeks, months, years are short! Anyways, Erick and I are headed to our college alma mater for their homecoming game this weekend – I haven’t been back to a football game since we left 5 years ago (ewe has it really been 5 years!?) so it should be a good ol’ nostalgic time.

Our house is coming together quickly which is so exciting! In case you’re new here, our house flooded 5 weeks ago and we had to completely gut our house. I so happy to say that we finally have FLOORS again!! I will do an entire blog post dedicated to our remodel but for fun I wanted this ‘Friyay Favorites’ post to be home decor themed. I’ve been doing  SO MUCH home shopping for fixtures, furniture, rugs, decor so needless to say I’ve found a ton of goodies as of late.

Self Care Sunday Routine

Wanted to share a quick run down of my self care sunday skincare routine i showed in my insta stories tonight. everything I used is linked below! enjoy!

Cleanse

After my hot steam shower which helps open up your pores, I first cleanse my face with my Clarisonic using this deep pore brush head and this cream cleanser by Kiehls. I’ll then use my hands to wash my face with this brightening cleanser by Revisions Skincare. I have considered buying a steamer similar to this one for times I don’t need to shower, it’d definitely come in handy.

Extract

Once my face is all clean I will then extract any blemishes with this tool. Don’t be too hard on your skin and know when to stop picking!! You don’t want to make it worse. Right now I’m using an Impressions mirror but I really want this bad boy.

Prep

Next I’ll prep my skin with this GloPRO prep pad just in case anything was left behind and then I’ll  use my Dermaflash to remove any peach fuzz and dead skin. It also helps with exfoliation and by removing that layer of unwanted nastiness it helps all your product in the next steps penetrate into your skin and  let’s them work to their fullest.  Next I use my GloPRO Microneedling tool, I splurged on this during the Nordstrom anny sale and I’m so glad I did. This tool works from the inside out by triggering skin’s natural healing process and inducing micro-regeneration deep within the skin. As 540 surgical stainless-steel microneedles pass over your skin, the rejuvenation process begins immediately as your cells respond to thousands of imperceptible microchannels by creating new collagen and restoring skin’s volume.

Mask

Yes To Grapefruit Vitamin C Glow Boosting Bubbling Paper Mask Single Use Facial Treatment - image 1 of 3

Now this is where I’d typically put on my regular nightly routine of products, however since it’s ‘Self Care Sunday’ this is where the mask’s come in. Tonight I used this charcoal peel mask which I love. This mask refines my pores and brightens my skin overall. I have naturally dry skin so if I do  a peel mask that typically tightens my face I then like to follow it up with a moisturizing mask. I picked up a few of theses ‘Say Yes’ mask’s from Target and tonight I used their bubbling brightening grapefruit sheet mask.  TIP: always take the extra ‘juice’ and rub it on your neck and chest. If there is a lot left in the packet I will stick it in the fridge and apply it to my face the next morning.

products

Final step, products. I’m currently using this eye cream along with lash boost for my lashes. I absolutely LOVE lash boost and can’t live with out it. When it comes to eye cream, I’ve never quite found one that I’m obsessed with. They all do an amazing job at de-puffing but I can’t seem to find one that gets ride of my dark circles in a life changing way. Anyways, I’ll then use this retinol by Skin Ceuticals and then wrap it up with this dry oil by Sunday Riley which I love. It helps fight acne including black heads along with helps fight acne scaring.

Extras

I’ve been taking these Glow Sweet Glow gummies by HUM which have hyaluronic acid, vitamin C & E which are all so amazing for  your skin. I will also drop one of these collagen pop tablets into a glass of water every other day or so which taste amazing, it’s a very soft lavender rose taste, and also does wonders for your skin.

So I know this whole routine may seem overwhelming and like a lot BUT skincare and preventative maintenance is very important – plus it’s very relaxing too! As always, let me know if you have any questions in the comments below!

Friyay Favorites {October 5th}

Happy happy Friyay y’all! Whew, we made it. It’s been quite the week for me as we packed up our house and moved it all to the garage to prepare for the inside of our house to be painted from ceiling to floor. After paint we’ll get the floors going and then hopefully be back into normal living conditions in 3-4 weeks!  ANYWAYS, I’m super excited for this weekend, if you’re from Kansas City y’all should be sure to come by the HMK store on the plaza to celebrate their 5th birthday! I’ll be there along with other local bloggers, influencers and local creators doing a live question panel and sharing insight into what we do. Okay, now onto why you clicked on this post, here are my current favorites for the week!

Fall Decor Home Tour

If you’ve been following along on my Insta then you know our home flooded two weeks ago. We are FINALLY (two weeks has never felt longer) starting the remodel construction and my life should be back to normal (with better home finishes) within 5 weeks, thank goodness. With that being said this ‘home tour’ post is sadly not exactly what I had planned.  Because of the house situation there is obviously not much decorating happening inside however I was able to still decorate my front porch, which turned out so well! Keep your scroll to see all the front porch details plus my recommendations and inspo for inside!
