Go Native!


Happy hump day loves!!! I'm so excited to share this amazing all natural deodorant brand with you. While I thought my body needed time to adjust to this pleasant Tea Tree & Sage scent, I noticed on the second day of wearing, it was all good!

Note: This is a Spring scent and limited edition

It helps that I live a very healthy lifestyle, so as far as going through a natural detoxification period, it wasn't necessary. It matters folks, from the inside out what we put into our bodies. For me, this deodorant lasts 24 hrs and then some.....believe me, I do sweat! It's been over 100 degrees here in Sacramento, CA and sweating I have done packed!

This is paraben and aluminum free. If you happen to apply too much under your arms, just rub it in and you're all good. It's extremely moisturizing and reduces any wetness you may have as well. So, let me tell y'all how I ran out on the third day forgetting to put on deodorant altogether....yeah, tell me about it! I ran errands, mommy duties all day, the whole nine. Returned home and still smelled fresh with nothing more than my Tory Burch perfume. No funkyness, nope....nada! I was tripping out all day, expecting to smell pretty funky. LOL



This deodorant will definitely be my go to! The ingredient of baking soda seriously neutralizes any foul odor. I could never skip a day with any of my previous natural deodorants. I finally have the right one! You can too at www.nativecos.com. Next, it's on to Coconut & Vanilla, ooooo or Lavender & Rose! There's several scents to choose from. What's even better, you can get 10% off until 9/1/17 with my code SOAA10. Happy shopping!


Peace & Love

Four Sigmatic- Mushroom Coffee


Hey lovelies! Lately, most of my mornings begin with a hot cuppa Four Sigmatic's Mushroom Coffee. Not your regular coffee at all. It's real, fresh coffee with wild harvested fruiting body extracts. The taste is to die for! It's bold, strong and quite delicious. What's even better, it's all natural with 4 powerful ingredients.

100% Arabica Coffee, Siberian Chaga Mushroom, Lion's Mane Mushroom, and Wild Rhodiola Root. It holds 500 mg mushrooms + 50 mg of caffeine per serving. It gives you a serious boost of balanced stimulation. The brain-food to to jumpstart your day without the unhealthy overload of jitters. I'm more alert and ready to go each morning I indulge in a cup.



Not only do I enjoy a cup with coconut sugar alone, sometimes I'll add Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Blend Almondmilk. Here I've added a tablespoon of unrefined coconut oil, coconut sugar, and cardomom. YUMMYLICIOUS!

Try a box and let me know what cha' think!

us.foursigmatic.com or you can find it on Amazon. I love me some Prime! ( ;

Mermaid Pillows (Love Yourself) - Review


Happy Friday loves! I had to share this AMAZING pillow with you from www.mermaidpillowco.com. It's much more than just a pillow! It is a calming effect....a peace of mind....a message to read continuously to uplift and encourage you. The back features sequins that you can use to draw on by just moving your finger along or even your hand.




I instantly chose this pillow for my 8 year old daughter. I instill so much positivity into her and she see's it within me daily, that having this message on her bed is that something of her very own. My daughter has drawn so many different things from animated characters, butterflies, to just a happy face. I got my chance to make a couple things too!



Let me tell you, this pillow hasn't left her side. She even brought it out of town with us. Used it daily as well as demonstrated different drawings on the back for her big sister and Aunt. It gives her a sense of peace and excitement. I will have to order more for that factor alone! Not to mention, I want some for myself lol

Although May was Mental Health Awareness month, it's something that is ongoing in our world today. Mermaid Pillows can help ease so much with just the inspiration it holds alone. I found this helped me to focus on something outside of the depression I face most days. It's extremely calming and fun to come up with different drawings. Check them out for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

Models Own- Makeup Review

Hey lovelies!!!! Happy Fri-YAY + holiday weekend! Well, I'm back with an amazing fashion and trend color brand from the U.K. called Models Own. Their cruelty free makeup collection is so vibrant, bold, rich and colorful! Highlighter to die for!

This liquid matte lippie in Coral Fresh is gorgeous and so fun! I haven't worn a color like it! Not only is is rich and creamy, it smells like mint, absolutely delish! Makes your lips feel minty fresh like a lip balm. Perfect for that Summer time fine! Not to mention this Sculpt & Glow Highlighter Powder in Golden Sand is so lovely on my skin tone.

I just added a light touch of it and and the glow is magical! It's definitely buildable for that extra glow effect! You can easily go from day to night or just day. Whichever tickles your fancy! I will definitely get my wear from both of these throughout the months to come. You can grab these and so much more (eye, face and lip products) exclusively at www.ulta.com

F21 Flower Duster- Poshmark

Happy Monday loves! I was finally able to pull out this gorgeous flower duster + back out jumpsuit with cape. This outfit is dressy casual and very comfortable. Main reason I paired these bow knot slides along with it. A pair of high heels would give this a whole different look.

This Duster is lightweight and the splits on the sides give it that flowy look. The zippers along the arms gave that much more detail. This jumpsuit sold me with these wings. Of course I couldn't pass up a little skin action in the process. These slides also come in silver and are less that $25 on www.charlotterusse.com

These days, it's a bit of a challenge deciding on what to wear with this unpredictable weather. I catch the days as they come. It's always a good idea to layer up when it's cold. Where I live, by the afternoon, I'm pulling off a layer here and there. You just never know. Have a fab week y'all!!!
