Hey friends, welcome back to my weekly empties! I love sharing products with you that I have used and recommend and even those that I'm not sure I would purchase again. Most of the time they are beauty products but I may throw in a few others that I feel strongly about!

I am SO excited to say I am finally a TULA Brand Ambassador! I love TULA and have been ordering from them for a while now. My last empties post also included some of these same products because I seriously use them daily! The filter blurring primer is an every day item for me. I have this on auto order along with the sunscreen and facewash because they're just so good! I love the formula and how it really does blend in with your skin. I have been using Luna which is meant for fair to light skin tones, but I purchased First Light this next time - meant for all skin tones to see if there is a difference.
Hey friends, it's been a while since I've talked about teeth on here so I wanted to tell you about a new Smile Brilliant product I've been trying. I am one of those people that has consistently gone to the dentist twice a year since I was a kid. I really try to take care of my teeth especially because it's where my eyes are first drawn when talking to people. I've used their custom whitening tray system (blog post here) and their electric toothbrush (blog post here) as well so it's safe to say I'm a fan of Smile Brilliant products.

One of my friends at work asked me what is the thing you get excited to finish. Me being me, I said a really good meal. And when I asked her what hers was she said when she finishes a product, she just feels so accomplished that she finally finished an entire bottle. That got me thinking, that is something that I love doing and that’s something that I think that I want to start sharing. I’ve seen a few bloggers do it, and I want to talk to you guys about my empties and my review of the product. So I’m gonna share my empties and whether or not I would repurchase or go in a different direction.

These all just happen to be Tula products, not planned just how it worked out!! This week I finished my 24-7 moisture day and night cream, my face filter blurring primer, and the protect and glow daily sunscreen.

Hey friends, here to talk about Mothers Day! Let's be honest, moms deserve it all - I am one so I can say this right? If you are like me and you buy most things yourself, you save the holidays for something that is a little more special/pricey. To be honest, I budget my money and purchase what I want and what I will use, BUT if you're not like that and ask for the big stuff I'm here for you too. This has been a tough year, and it's not the year for cheap jewelry or handbags that you don't really need. This is the year to treat your mom, wife, partner, mother in law, or even yourself with something nice that is also practical.
I go through cycles where I consistently go to a salon and have my nails done but I get sick of the time and cost that it takes. When the pandemic hit I saw sooo many people trying to do their nails at home and I loved it! It's fun to learn a new hobby and also use it as some self care. I've done my nails at home for years and have spent time learning how to do my own acrylics, gel, dip, and builder gel. Through all of these I've got to say that builder gel is by far my favorite and one that I plan on continuing.
,Acrylic can be very messy and strong at home. And if you mess up it's a bigger hassle to fix. Dip is great but it felt more damaging to my nails and let's be real, it's a pain in the butt to remove! Gel was easy and felt less damaging, but with weightlifting I tend to still chip them and because it's my natural nail they would break more. Then enters builder gel....
This little toddler loves trying to help so I made sure to include her in my baking adventures today. Today we made chocolate chip - peanut butter - banana cookies [recipe here] and had so much fun.
Toddlers can be very messy in the kitchen so here are some of my tips and tricks:
If you haven't already looked, I posted my gift guides all on a separate page, but I wanted to also create a blog post as well! I love giving gifts and have been finding so many deals already, but I also wanted to highlight other shops - smaller and local - and figured a post would be a great way to do it! I love personalized gifts and think they can be so meaningful. Here are some other gift ideas along with the links for all the others on myHoliday Gift Guide Page.
All the sales are happening and if you're like me you like to get your holiday shopping done early. If you didn't know Target is doing their deal days right now (great price matching to Prime day!) The sale ends tomorrow though so hurry for these online only specials! P.S if you useRakuten you can also activate 1% cash back on certain products!

Right now they havefurniture deals up to 50% off! I am loving all these pieces and want to add a few to our home (even though I need a little more space....) I have been dying for a fireplace and this one is so cute! My sister has a giant bean bag in their living room that my little one loves and this one is such a great deal! Plus all the modern style furniture is so clean it makes me want to redo my whole house!
There are SO many kitchen sales going on right now some are too good to pass up! This indoor grill is so cool I definitely want to snag one of these. Quite a few of my friends have air fryers and this one is $40 off. If you don't have a kitchen aid already you are missing out and this one has a glass bowl and is beautiful! We still have our standard Keurig (we use a reusable filter not pods) and they are great for quick coffee or hot water for tea. I don't know about you but we are slowly converting all our food storage to glass and I love these containers!
I know tons of bloggers are putting out their prime day favorites but I wanted to join the party! I'm not actually looking for a lot for Prime Day but I wanted to share some of my favorites I already have and just some killer deals that you might be looking for!
There are so many tech deals right now but here are a few of my faves!
I love kitchen gadgets and here are some of my faves some I have and others are on my wish list!
Here are some of my other random favorites - these hangers are the best and 100% ordering more!

I haven't talked about skincare in a while (or ever?) and that's one thing I've really been focusing on during this whole Covid stuck-at-home-thing. When I was younger I got hormonal cystic acne and it was just horrible. I was left with scarring, still have some deep pores, and will occasionally get cystic acne still. I've been trying to find a skincare routine that is more natural while still being effective and in comes Derma E. I have been using some of their products already (Vitamin E oil & Anti-wrinkle treatment oil) and was really excited to try out their Vitamin C skincare line. Vitamin C has antioxidant properties so the idea of brighter and smoother skin sounded great to me! I got 5 items from their line so I'm going to tell you how I felt about them!
