It has been awhile since I have done an Empties post but I have quite a few items to talk about! Y’all know I am trying to be better about using up product before buying more and I think I am still doing really well with that! See below for everything I used up and what I thought!


Dunkin Donuts K Cups: This yummy coffee is one of my go to flavors.  I especially love mixing it with my Vital Proteins.

Pantene Shampoo & Conditioner: I really like these products but I have pretty easy hair to manage (minus that it is curly/wavy/straight all at once + postpartum hair loss is real) but I don’t process my hair so it stays pretty healthy.

Alba Cleanser: I really love this cleanser.  I have acne prone skin and I really felt it got a good amount of the makeup and grime off my face and help prevent blemishes.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo:  This stuff is AMAZING but it is pricy.  I have found Batiste also works really well for a much cheaper price too!

Velvet Matte: This is a major DUPE for my Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation and I love it for my everyday wear! It has amazing coverage.

Fendi Perfume: I have had this for a couple years now and love the scent of it.  It has of smells citrus, floral and black currant. SO YUMMY!

Great Lash Mascara: The GO TO everyday mascara.  Great price and it is a classic!

Hair Oil: I really liked this! I was hesitant to try this over my serum but it worked really wonderfully and smelled SO amazing!

Have you tried any of these products before…. what should I try next?

Hair Tutorial

*Please note this post may contain affiliate links!

Hi y’all! I get a lot of questions about how I curl my hair.  So I finally gave in and made a tutorial video.  I am not the best at making videos so bear with me as I learn what I am doing.  If you have questions about anything let me know.

This is a super fast way (7 minutes), to curl your hair! I find that the curls last much longer too!

Here are the products I use:

Chi Straightener

Mason Pearson Brush

Heat Protectant

PS I round brush blow dry my hair before I curl so I have some volume!

Day 2 hair:


What is your favorite way to style your hair?

Feeling SAS-sy

I am so excited to be partnering with SAS Footwear.They have recently introduced the ultimate ballet flat named the “Scenic”.  They graciously sent me a pair to try out and here are some of my favorite features:

  • 73 sizes & 5 widths with multiple colors and patterns
  • Premium leather
  • Removable/Washable footbed- with shock absorbing cushion IMG_3959

Can I just say how great these shoes are for busy moms?!?!  They feel like tennis shoes but are quality ballet flats.  I love how easy they are on the go and that they can help make any outfit look so put together.

I went with red because I am a huge OU Football Fan and I thought these would be perfect for those long days tailgating. These also would be perfect for Valentines Day too!  Something I really noticed after wearing them all day was how I wasn’t sore when I went to bed. I’ve realized as I have started getting older that I need to take care of my body to avoid nightly aches and pains and these shoes really help with those aches.

These scenic flats are a great investment, look adorable and something I think are something every mom should have.

What are your favorite flats?
