CURRENTLY LISTENING: Frank Sinatra- Autumn Leaves

Hi Darlings!

It has been such an amazing, relaxing yet fulfilled Sunday! Spent the day unwinding on my Luxury Quick Zip Fitted Sheets. I have FALLen in love with this Brand. I really appreciate that the process to make the bed was so efficient. I think this collection is very beneficial for moms on-the-go, very convenient and hassel-free. Especially when you have a huge bed that takes up most of the Square footage in the room lol. Not to mention, it is so minimalistic, clean and comfortable.

Guess what? As soon as I made the the bed, baby Isabella ran into our room, rushed on the bed and started jumping on it. Typical toddler behavior except she grabbed her pretend microphone and asked me to sing “True Colors” with her. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen us in action.  Here are some of the key features you should know prior to purchasing your new Quick Zip Sheet:

Luxe Fitted Sheet Collection features:

  • Better fit for better comfort
  • Vertical elastic in corners and a generous overlap underneath keep base snug
  • Won’t pop off the mattress
  • Zipper is covered and out of site
  • Easy access corner zipper start location
  • Get it right the first time – no more guessing which corner is which
  • Easy handling with large zipper pull ribbon loop
  • Luxurious 400-thread-count sateen 100% cotton that is soft and smooth against your skin with a subtle sheen
  • Deep pocket fitted base

You can save 15% OFF your orders by using the code “QUICKZIP15” through October 31st so hurry before its too late. P.S. If you’re eyeing my Creme filled pumpkin gobs and homemade spiced latte, I don’t blame you. It was absolutely delicious. How did you Spend your Weekend? Did you go to a pumpkin Patch? We sure did! More coming up on that story…

 

I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful Sunday.

Hey Guys,

Happy Sunday Darlings!

As promised on my Instagram a few weeks ago, I’m here to give you my review after using Tula’s Products.

Tula products combine probiotics with other skin friendly superfoods to naturally balance and boost the health of your skin. What I love most about these products is they’re so gentle and did not dry my skin out. I loved using the exfoliating treatment mask the most. It’s so good to be honest and felt amazing against my skin. It left a smooth finish and the texture is perfection personified. I used it 2x a week. Since I’m very picky with my skin and rarely use anything other than my main skincare products I shared with you all, I am elated to have tried Tula Products and extremely satisfied with the texture and hydration effect it had on my skin. If you are looking to balance and hydrate your skin, this skincare line is a great start.

Thanks For Visiting!

Hi darlings;

Happy Friday!

I wanted to share one of my latest hair care products with you. One thats affordable and works great. I mean what girl doesn’t like that combination? It’s a new therapy session hair mask from EVA-NYC, and it smells absolutely incredible to me. I use it as a deep conditioning treatment but this week i’ve been trying it out as a daily conditioner which works well. It repairs and strengthens dry and damaged hair, leaves your hair soft and manageable and its enriched with Argan oil and keravis protein complex. Be sure to pick yours up at Old Navy.

Apothederm Adult Acne Treatment (Review)

AFTER (7 DAYS Results)

Hello Darlings!

Happy Mothers Day to all the wonderful moms around the world. 🙂

Today I wanted to do a follow-up of my weekly results after using Apothederm Acne Clarifying Treatment. I know I don’t have terrible skin but sometimes my skin get breakouts and I have to deal with it when it happens. In this particular case, I’ve been a bit stressed and overwhelmed because, what busy mommy and wife isn’t right? And when you make a big life changing decision stress tend to crawl its way right in. Bottom line is, no matter how good your skin is, stress will cause breakouts among plethora of others things like hormone imbalance. Thanks to Apothederm’s latest acne treatment, I saw results in just a week…

If you look at the before photo, you can see that my skin was breaking out a little around my cheek and chin area. Now I’m not saying its a huge difference but it did start the process and, most, if not all those little problems are now gone. This two-in-one treatment reduces the appearance of blemishes and eliminate breakouts. I could actually see a difference in the size of my pores. As most of you may already know, It’s always very difficult for me to try anything new when it comes to my skin, but I’m glad I tried this product because it has helped balanced my skin and its so absorbing. During the entire week of testing the treatment, I made sure not to utilize any other products because I wanted to truly see if it would work on its own. Plus it’s not always good to mix products on your skin especially if you have sensitive/acne-prone skin.

The last three photographs are my after results taken in my room with natural lighting from the window- at a couple different angles. I wanted you to truly see my natural skin in its natural state. After cleansing and applying the product to my skin, it was so gentle and felt like milk. I only used it twice a day. Morning and night. You can apply up to three  times a day. As with any products, you have to know your limit. What works for one person is not guaranteed to work for everyone else. This honestly worked for me. 🙂

Have any of you guys tried this product before? If so let me know in the comments.

As Always,

Thanks for Visiting!

Love,

Natasha

More Macarons Please!

DSC_0046MDSC_0033MDSC_0024MDSC_0016MDSC_0014MDSC_0004M

Photography by me. xo

I’ve always had a coconut macaron obsession mostly when my sweet tooth gets in the way. These Parisian delightful goodness are almost perfect for any occasion. They are not the easiest to make and can be a bit overwhelming especially if you’re a mom on-the-go. They are also not the most cost-effective so its best to invest that 2-3 hours time slot in your schedule and create these quintessential macarons. If you’ve noticed, they’ve also become a huge trend in the blogger and Instagram world. Just take a peek at the hashtag and you’ll see what i mean.

Check out one of my favorite recipes here.

What are your favorite macarons? Share in the comments. Hope you had a wonderful Easter 🙂

Hey Guys;

Even though I lost an hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings Time, I had a quite enjoyable and fulfilled Sunday. I mean Saturday is my favorite day of the week but Sundays are my peaceful, overdosing on latte, binge reading my favorite coffee books and Vogue magazines, homemade hot chocolate stay in bed and cuddle all day after church kinda day. What are some of your favorite coffee books? How do you spend your Sundays?

Real Coconut Oil Benefits

IMG_9435

Hi Beauties;

Let’s Talk.

So I wanted to share with you all some amazingly incredible benefits of coconut oil.  First thing is first. The most important part of this to me, is that coconut oil has plethora of benefits. It is the real all-purpose deal. I grew up learning about and using coconut oil so it was already instilled in me as a vital product from the start. I watched my mom cook with it (today I do the same thing, it’s very good in jasmine rice, too ) as well as utilize it in my hair and on her skin.

Throughout the many years of using coconut oil, I’ve discovered that it also facilitates with digestion and can reduce the risk of heart disease and other infections and diseases. That’s more than amazing to say the least. I mean think about it. It’s a no-brainer that using coconut oil can possibly save lives. I use it to cook, moisturize my skin, massage my scalp; deep condition my hair and before I forget, it is extremely useful when trying to lose weight. It builds muscle and decreases body fat. Yes, the more you include it in your day-to-day meal, the better it aides in digesting and reducing abdominal obesity. I highly recommend it to anyone and especially to those of you struggling with health issues and weight-loss complications.

When you use it as a deep conditioner, it strengthens your hair and prevent damage as well as keep it nice and shiny. It will definitely grow your hair. Massage into your skin to prevent dryness while leaving it feeling  smooth and balanced. Especially if you hate wrinkles or trying to prevent them, this will serve as an excellent moisturizer and keep you looking younger than ever. No need to go out there and purchase those expensive anti-aging creams.

The cooking benefits are simple: you’ll live longer.  Using coconut oil promotes longevity and immunity against loads of diseases. If you cook with coconut oil, it will maintain all the nutrients even when heated at high temperatures. You can use coconut oil for your coffee and tea. Sounds crazy right? You can add it to make an organic tea creamer and sugar free coffee. I even use it when I juice because it serves as a superfood. Did I mention I love my fried plantains in coconut oil? It’s the best and they taste delicious. If you never tried cooking plantains in coconut oil please do and tell me how they turn out.

Here are some other bonuses that I’ll share with you guys. In addition to the multiple benefits mentioned, I also use coconut oil to remove my make-up. Girls, you must try this. Let me know how it helped if you did. I’d love to hear from you. It’s so good at removing eye makeup and foundation. Furthermore, I use it as a cuticle treatment and replace it with shaving cream to shave my legs.. It leaves them feeling smooth as ever. That’s all for today. Hope you enjoyed. Until next time.. XO
