Hi everyone!

It’s that time again! Where did the time go? November just FLEW by. This month I’m going to try and share a little wider variety of my favorites with you with a new category for my seasonal favorites! Let’s get to it:



HAH! What is beauty? Just kidding..

ipsy – I signed up for tipsy on a whim in August to discover new beauty products. While I haven’t been able to dig into those products, I am in love with this service. They take a quick survey to figure out what products you will like and use and so far, they’ve been pretty spot on. I’m definitely excited to dig into these products for Freddie’s family’s Christmas party! If you’re interested, you can sign up here!

*disclaimer – by using the above ipsy sign up link, I will earn points toward purchases I make through their site. I thank you in advance for using this link to sign up for the bag!*

Real Techniques Powder Brush – I have struggled to find a powder brush that I like. Every other (cheap) brush I have used leaves brush hair all over my face and it drives me insane! So far, this one has worked wonderfully for me and leaves zero fuzzies behind, woo hoo!

Garnier Micellar Water – I used to buy really expensive makeup wipes to get my makeup off and they didn’t work all that great and I blew through them so fast because I was often using two to get all the makeup off my face. I’d heard so many bloggers talk about micellar water, I wanted to give it a try and I absolutely love it! A little bit on a circular cotton pad and I can get all my eye makeup off in one swipe. It’s also so much more cost-effective, which I obviously love.


Merona Open Cardigan – I got this for Freddie’s family fun weekend thrown by the company he works for and I have worn it too many times since I have gotten it. It’s nice and warm, it’s really cute, and it doesn’t look silly with yoga pants, which are the only things that fit this postpartum body.

Gilligan and O’Malley Sleeping Nursing Bras – I just got these a couple of weeks ago and I have fallen in love. I want like fifteen more because they are just so darn comfortable! Seriously, for lounging around the house, give these a try. They’re nice and loose but supportive and just so comfy.


Ninja Professional Blender – I LOVE this blender. I love the single cups they give you, I love the big jug, I love the blade; I just love everything about it. It works so well, it cuts through ice and frozen fruit and it doesn’t start to smell like smoke afterwards! My absolute favorite thing are the individual cups that you can blend in. It makes preparing a healthy smoothie, so easy. As we all know, if it’s easy to prepare, it’s easier to stay on track!

Power Pressure Cooker XL – We got this for Freddie’s birthday because he has been hounding me for a rice cooker. This thing does it ALL. It is a rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, you name it, this thing does it. No lie. We have used it quite a few times and we really enjoy it. It is quite large, so if you’re planning to buy it, figure out where you’re going to put it first!


WaterMinder App – I got this app because I am terrible about drinking water and one of my goals for my 23rd year was to drink more water. I love this because it sends notifications to my phone to drink water. Because I spend most of my day on my phone, it helps me to drink water so so much!

Lark – This app is like a personal trainer of sorts. It takes your activity and analyzes it, giving you a peek into the things you may need to improve. What I love most about it is how supportive the app is. It is always telling me that I did a great job and to not let a bad day of working out stop me. Because I did work out that day, after all, right?


Wondershop Initial Stockings – With the addition of our little one, I knew I wanted to go all out for Christmas decorations this year. I want to make Christmas special for my little one and I always remember my house growing up was a christmas wonderland. I want to do the same for my children. When I saw these stockings, I knew they’d be perfect for our house

Target Shatterproof Ornaments – With two clumsy, dapper dogs, shatterproof ornaments are a must. If not, we would have had at least ten shattered ornaments at this point. For me, it just isn’t worth the mess to put fragile ornaments on the tree. Maybe when the puppies and baby are older and the puppies aren’t so rambunctious. Now is not that time!

Starbucks Gingerbread Latte – My all-time favorite drink from Starbucks is their gingerbread latte. Enough said!

Love Mariah NEW NEW
