Wish wish wish list

Hello lovelies! 

As promised I am starting my accomplishment /wish list.. Hope you all enjoy! Leave me any comments below if you have any suggestions or thoughts ☺️



First things first these need to happen in my life! These are from California donuts and they seem to have the most eclectic donuts I’ve ever seen. Not to mention I’ve heard nothing but the best about them! P.s. They are open 24 hours😍. 



How stinking cute is this phone case!! It’s from Lilly Pulitzer  and well Ya its self explanatory because it’s adorable! 

I have been forever looking for a dainty little cross necklace, very simple right? But it’s nearly impossible to find the right one, I adore this one from Dogeared .Even if you aren’t religious or not in the market for a cross necklace they have sooo many different charms and themes to pick from! Check them out!!

Soo I need some major help with books; I love love to read but I need help with suggestions on books to read. Honestly I just need a book to draw me in the first few minutes if not I probably won’t ever finish it. 

 

Okay sooo since I’m on a monogram kick I thought might as well add an adorable pillow into the mix! This pillow is from Swoozies  and you can customize them in the link above. This store has the most amazing gifts there! 

I’m also in the need of a good face wash, my face is combination/sensitive. Almost everything typically breaks/ dries out my skin and it is no fun. Any suggestions would be very helpful. 😜

  

Another adorable monogrammed item 😍 this one is from Marley Lilly! But guys I can’t choose which one because they are all so adorable! I also like this one and btw they are on sale now AND they are having a seersucker sale in two days. I also like this one that’s in the runnings.  

 

Okay that is it for today, later on this week I will be putting up a monthly favorites post because I will be going to San Francisco next weekend 😍😘

Xoxo,

Brittany

I’m alive!

Hey guys! So sorry that I’ve been neglecting my blog 😲 I’ve been all over the place with my schedule but promise to make a strong comeback. 

So here’s an update from my birthday! My mom is basically a birthday ninja and surprised me so much with the necklace from my monthly favorites wish list 😍😍😍 Thanks mom!! 

The little girl I tutor calls it my forever necklace because I need to wear it forever it is so beautiful she says!  The. I also have a ninja sister who surprised me with these amazing gifts from New York aka all of my favorite things {earrings from Laila Rowe, bagels from my favorite place in New York, black and white cookies and a beautiful porcelain jewelry dish} 

I am convinced I have the best family! 



Then my boyfriend and I went to the third street promenade and Santa Monica pier which was soooo beautiful. We finished the night up with some Puerto Rican food in North Hollywood 😍 all in all a successful birthday. I love you all! 😘



So I think I’m going to start a monthly wish list of things I would like to accomplish/ treat myself to?!  Be on the look out for that as well as a review on the new E.L.F. Skincare line!

January Favorites!

So as I am still new to this whole blogging thing it’s going to take a bit to get in the swing of things but I figured monthly favorites are always a fun thing to be reading…AmIRight???

Most of the things I’m just going to find stock pictures of because I just think it looks better that way!

1.Suave dry shampoo: it’s the only dry shampoo that doesn’t leave my hair feeling weird and that the scent doesn’t make me sick! But it’s my tried and true!
2. Okay so I don’t actually have this yet…buuuuut it’s one my birthday wish list sooo here’s hoping! It’s the Kendra Scott Hayden pendant necklace in turquoise it is sooo beautiful.
3. Aussie 3 minute moisture mask is a lifesaver. Here in California it’s a ton of money to get your hair cut. Nothing is generally wrong with mine It just needed a bit of life put back into it. This stuff works the first time you use it and it’s about $3.50 at target!
4. Revlon 25 hour lasting finish foundation..it’s absolutely one of the best as far as drugstore foundation that I have used for coverage. However 25 hours is questionable…I wore it for about 12 hours and I was pushing it. It was still on my face but def looked faintly on my t-zone.
5. CANDLES 😍 these Laduree candles are to die for!! They smell beautiful as well as look super chic!
6. Trader joes cold brew coffee concentrate…FHEW! That is a mouthful! Lol but this stuff it fantastic for you iced coffee lovers. It’s not bitter in taste but a little goes a long way. You seriously only need about 2 capfuls to a whole glass of milk..ITS.THAT.STRONG!! It gives me just enough caffeine to get through the day.
7. Lush snow angel…yummmm! This smells of marzipan and I know that sounds like it smells funny but I promise it smelled divine! It was from their holiday collection so it won’t be available again until the holidays (Sidenote the whole back is coated in gold glitter, and it makes a mess but it’s still so pretty).
8. Another lush product haha it’s their snow fairy body wash. Smells like cotton candy sweetness with teeny tiny specks of glitter. It is sooo cute. Not to mention it gives a good hydrating wash!
9. And last but not least is my most favorite/most used of them all is the trader joes 21 seasoning salute! 👅💦
I put this seasoning on absolutely everything! It came as a suggestion from my sister who is a Chef extraordinaire! If you buy anything from this favorites list GET THIS! It’s ah-mazing!

Until we meet again!

This is it!

I am jumping on the healthy bandwagon, this will be the last year (I know that everybody says that) that I am unhealthy. I want to be able to enjoy life more. It’s not like I’m super over weight but I would like to loose 30ish pounds and I figured what better of a place to keep myself accountable.

So I began with a really tasty recipe I just threw together super simple!

IMG_0763

1c. Cooked quinoa
1c. Grilled chicken
1/2c. Tiny potatoes (from trader joes)
1c. Green beans
21 seasoning salute ( holy grail, from trader Joe’s)

Basically I just cooked all of the ingredients on separate skillets (except for the quinoa). Once they are done cooking (about 10 min each) I sprayed it with a little bit of olive oil and seasoned it to taste with the 21 seasoning salute from trader joes.

Seriously so delicious! Let me know what you think! You could also substitute the tiny potatoes for sweet potatoes! Yummmm!

If anyone has any suggestions of something that has worked for them let me know! I will be periodically posting updates to see what has been working/not working for me!

Bitten by the carb fairy

Alas another morning waking up wanting bagels however I settled with some biscuits which seemed to do the trick momentarily. But I did not give up on my search for a decent bagel; the search got so in depth that I actually found a company that ship bagels, black and white cookies and crumb cakes to your house. 😍 My birthday is in a few weeks so naturally that is what I asked for for my birthday! bagel of the month club Anyways enough of my rant on food, I promise this blog will not be all about bagels! WERE MOVING WERE MOVING! So exciting! I cannot wait to start to decorate or start diy projects. My pinterest board is overflowing with cute things that I can’t wait to make. Stay tuned for more diy projects! Here’s what I’m thinking so far IMG_0747 IMG_0748 Let me know if you have anything you want to see on the blog in the comments below! Until we meet again! Xoxo Brittany

Gooood morning, good moorning it’s great to stay up late..

…Not! It’s actually noon here in California but I am still very tired. Finding a good {New York} bagel here is nearly impossibly. They all claim to be like the real thing but I suppose it’s true New York’s water does make everything better.

As I begin my search in bed for the best bagels on yelp I am getting seriously hungry. |Sidenote: have you ever rolled over to your significant other or whomever is in bed with you and just stared at them hoping that if you do it long enough they will actually wake up? | Well that’s what I am currently doing..however my eye daggers are not currently working HAHA! But such is life…

I ended up settling for Einstein bro’s bagels..sheer disappointment. Not like it’s a bad bagel place just not what I was hoping for in my mind.

Guys, it’s real I have a serious love for bagels, as well as desserts and basically anything carbs. I am going to pastry school so I guess it all makes sense.

Anyways since this is my first post {if anyone’s out there reading in the Internet world}. This blog is going to mainly be about different recipes, traveling, diy projects, and beauty/ lifestyle things. Hope you all enjoy!

Until we meet again!
xoxo
