My Amazon Wish List!

Wednesday, September 04, 2019

Happy Wednesday! Today on the blog I thought I would share a few products that are on my Amazon Wish List. I love ordering things off of Amazon, and I'm sure you guys do too! These are all items that I've heard amazing things about. And maybe these will give you some ideas to put on your Amazon Wish List! 😊

1. Halluci Crossband Soft Plush Slippers // I've been seeing these slippers all over Instagram! They just look so comfy and I need them on my feet now! Haha. I know I for sure want these in pink, but I'm also thinking I like the grey pair too. 

2. Daisy Rose Checkered Tote *LV Dupe!* // My dream bag is a LV Neverfull, but I know that if I ever did get one I would be super scared to carry it. Because I would just be really afraid of it getting dirty. So I like that this one is affordable and I wouldn't worry about it getting as dirty, since it doesn't cost as much! 

3. Chase Secret Fleece Pullover // I just think this looks super warm and comfy! I pretty much live in stuff like this all winter. 

4. Daisy Rose Checkered Key Chain Pouch *LV Dupe!* // I need this key chain pouch in my life! I think having these are so handy, just toss your cards in or some cash, grab your keys, and just run a quick errand. And I also love that it's another LV dupe! 

5. Luxury Checkered Cosmetic Bag *LV Dupe!* // I actually really need a real travel makeup bag. The one that I have now is just too bulky. I've cut down my everyday makeup routine so much that I just don't need that much space. This one would be the perfect size! Plus it's a LV dupe!! 

6. Lovaru Boho Open Front Cardigan // I've heard a lot of good things about ordering clothes off of Amazon! I just think this cardigan is super cute and perfect for fall! 

7. Mr. Coffee Espresso and Cappuccino Maker // I've been looking at tons of different espresso and cappuccino makers. I've also learned how pricey they can be!! This one is still a little pricey, but not terrible. It's something I probably won't splurge on for a little while. I do think it would be nice to have an espresso maker to make various espresso drinks at home. And maybe save a little money not going to get coffees all the time haha! 😂

8. Bayco Glass Food Storage Containers // I really like these storage containers! I also really need more storage containers. Probably wouldn't use these in the camper, but they'd be great for at home! I'm just afraid in the camper they would break. I don't know, I might try them in the camper. I also just really prefer glass containers over plastic containers. 

So those are just a few items on my Amazon Wish List! What is on your wish list? Tell me in the comments below! 

Hope you guys have a great Wednesday!

Reading: Currently reading Adventures For Your Soul by Shannon Kaiser. I've read this book before, and just going through a time in my life where I need to read it again. 

Watching: I haven't really been watching much of anything on TV. I will watch different shows on HGTV every once in awhile. I'd much rather listen to podcasts instead of watching TV. 

Planning: Been planning some fall designs for Coffee Cat Designs, that I can't wait to get released and show you guys! 😊

Thinking About: So many different things. It seems like things have been super stressful lately!

Current Favorite Makeup Products!

Monday, July 15, 2019

Today on the blog, I thought I would share some of my current favorite makeup products! I don't really wear makeup much anymore, and when I do wear makeup I keep it really simple. I would like to do a video on my simple makeup routine. Would you guys be interested in that? Let me know! Anyway, I don't like to wear makeup everyday anymore. I've been trying to give my skin a break and a chance to breathe without makeup on! But when I do wear makeup, these are some of my favorite products to use! 

Wet n Wild Photo Focus 3-in-1 Rose Primer Water // I use this product before I apply anything else! This makes a great primer, but I also like to use it just to refresh my face throughout the day. It also smells so good!! 

ELF Poreless Face Primer // I use this after I apply the rose water primer. Yes, I use two primers! This one is great at filling in pores and blurring. It has a matte finish, which I really like. I just really prefer a matte finish. 

ELF 16 Hour Camo Concealer // This is my favorite concealer! It is such a good drugstore concealer. It is full coverage and has a matte finish. I like that it's full coverage, but it doesn't feel super heavy. 

Maybelline Better Skin Powder Foundation // I've always been a huge fan of the Maybelline Better Skin line. I used to use the liquid foundation, but now mostly just use the powder. The Better Skin line has salicylic acid in it, which is used to treat acne. I use this powder as a setting powder. It just gives my face a flawless finish. 

Benefit Precisely, My Brow // I love this brow pencil! It has a fine tip, so it allows you to easily add definition. Lately I've been keeping my brows on the natural side, and just filling it the sparse areas that need a little something.

L.A Colors Show It Off Blush & Highlight Palette // Can you guys believe this palette was only $3 at the Dollar General?! The blushes and highlighters are super pigmented. I love warm tone blushes, especially in the summer. 

Huda Beauty Resting Boss Face Setting Spray // I'm obsessed with this setting spray! It has a matte finish. Are you guys seeing a trend here with the matte products? Haha! I told you I love a matte finish. This is also an extra hold setting spray. I know some people have talked about the scent being really overpowering, but I personally really like it. 

Those are my current favorite makeup products! What are your current favorites? Let me know in the comments!

Reading: Not reading anything right now. I need book recommendations! I also can't decide if I want to read on my iPad. I've thought about it, but I just think it would be weird to read on the screen. If that makes sense. 

Watching: I haven't really been watching too much TV lately. J and I have been watching cartoons at night, but that's about it. 

Planning: I've been wedding planning a lot lately! It's been going really good. I want to share some details on the blog, but not too many. Don't want to spoil anything!! I've also been planning some new design ideas for Coffee Cat Designs and Elsie Lane Co

Thinking About: So many things! I've been super stressed lately. Not fun!! 

Loving: Kittens! And coffee. All the coffee.

My Three Favorite Ways To Earn Money Blogging!

Thursday, June 20, 2019

If you're like me, you've always had the dream of working from home. That was always a goal of mine! And I'm so blessed to have that dream be reality. But if you're also like me, you probably thought that dream was unattainable. Good news! It's not! It's definitely possible to earn an income blogging. Here are my three favorite ways to earn money blogging. 

Affiliate Marketing // This one is definitely my favorite way to make money as a blogger. Affiliate marketing is when you are able to share a product that you love, and earn a commission doing it. This is one of the most popular ways make money as a blogger/influencer. There are many different affiliate programs out there. I personally really like using the Amazon affiliate program. 

Ads // I'm sure you've heard of this one already, as it's probably the most used way to make money as a blogger. I wouldn't necessarily recommend using ads if you're new the blogging world, as it does take quite a bit of traffic. But if you have a lot of traffic on your blog, this would be perfect for you! 

Sponsored Posts // As your blog grows, you will probably start getting emails from brands wanting to work with you. And chances are, they'll be wanting you to write a blog post for them. I could do a whole post on what to do if a brand contacts you, if you guys would be interested in that! Something to keep in mind, when a brand contacts you, it's okay to not work with every single one! Don't just work with a brand because you're gonna make a bunch of money from their post. Work with a brand because you trust them and trust the products they're selling. 

So those are my three tips to earn money as a blogger! I hope that these tips help you guys grow your blog, and make your stay at home blogging dream reality!
