Three Things We Love To Do On The Weekend!

What do you like to do on the WEEKEND? Do you like to rest, clean, party, or 101 million other things that are out there to do! Do you stay at home and unwind from the week or are you the weekend party animal? I think I go in stages. A couple of years ago I was out every weekend, nowadays I just want to CHILL!

Weekends Are The Best To Unwind!

When it comes to weekends, I try not to make a lot of plans. If I had it my way, I would lay in bed all weekend drinking coffee, eating chips, and watching “YOU” on Netflix, but that is only a wish. Most people take the weekend to unwind from the week though.

We need to remember that weekends are blessings because we create memories on the weekends.

I enjoy COMFORT on the weekend.

T-shirts are a MUST on weekends.  

Usually, during the week, you have to dress up for work, so I love to ROCK MY FAVORITE T-SHIRTS on the weekends. Why weekends? Why not? I have more time to show off the shirt and have people comment, “Oh, I like your T-shirt” or ask me where I got it from- like this t-shirt from Boredwalk TShirts Los Angeles. They have T-shirts for EVERYONE! 

I love this shirt because it is SO ME- Cute but Prickly and I love the fact that the cactus looks like it is flipping you off- or is it just me? Boredwalk Tshirts have the best sayings, so if you are a t-shirt person, you better check them out and get some trendy tee’s in your wardrobe before spring is here. Shirts with sayings or funny pictures are the perfect ice breaker. How many times have you commented on someone’s T-shirt- I know I have a MILLION TIMES…ok, maybe 1000. 

Next weekend throw on your favorite t-shirt and some jeans and you are set. Go for a walk downtown and see how many people commit on your shirt. I know I would if I saw you.  

Get my nails done!

I love to get my nails done. Men too- my man likes to go in and get a pedicure when I go in to get my nails done. I work with my hands, so they need to look good all the time. Sitting in a chair and having someone pamper you is AMAZING!  

Go in every couple weeks to get your nails done- it also does your self-love some good too. When you feel good on the outside, you will also feel good inside. Or least I do. Something about getting your nails done all pretty makes me feel like a new woman. Weird, I know, but it is something I love to do for myself. Pretty nails are my thing, and I enjoy doing this on the weekend. 

Read a book on the weekend.

During the week, I’m so busy with my work, family, and household requirements that I rarely have time to read anymore. I love books that are easy but entertaining, so I found that young adult books are exactly what I like to read. 

Let me tell you about the book I’m reading now…WARDENS OF ETERNITY (just released) by Courtney Moulton (author of the acclaimed Angelfire series) #OwnVoices. If you like an action-packed page-turner, which blends history, mythology, and magic, then this book is for YOU!  

Such a smooth read that keeps me wanting more. Every night before bed, I try to read some pages before my mind shuts down. It is about a young woman, and the days leading up to World War II. She has to rely on her wit and magic to outmaneuver the Nazis and ancient Egyptian gods to prevent global destruction. Right- sounds exciting, huh- IT IS! 

Ziva is descended from Egyptian royalty, so her magic has been passed down. Her parents abandoned her when she was 3 yrs old in New York. Some parents! The story takes place fifteen years later, and Ziva is learning how to control her magical skills. She has a lot of power, and very evil people want to take that all away from her- want to know what happens well, you better get yourself a copy NOW on Amazon. 

Now I shared three things I love to do on the weekends, but there is so much more fun to have- please share what you like to do on the weekend.

Look Stylish Under The Sun

Living in California, the sun is out most days. I like to take walks throughout the day. However, when it’s too cold outside, I tend to do an indoor workout, such as yoga! I prefer wearing cute and flirty styles, even at home. Leggings are my favorite, I can never have too many pairs! From clothes to accessories, we found fun ways to look stylish under the sun!

When my son and I head out to run errands, I always remind him to put his sunglasses on. I make it a point to wear sunglasses when it is bright outside or the sun is out!

Feel Good Products for 2020!

I want to use products that make me feel good and are good for me!  I look back over the last five years I wasted a lot of money, time, and space on products that weren’t worth it! I’ve been cleaning my home for the past month and feel good getting rid of just plain JUNK!  For 2020 I’m only going to use feel good products.

I felt like I needed to share with our readers on some products that are 2020 worthy!  

Inspirational Clothing-Feel good!

So there is this brand that I feel we all need to get behind in 2020. BRAVEHOODS- their mission is to give kids comfort and hope while they fight cancer. I love me some BraveHoods for many reasons, but the main one is for every item bought one is donated- so basically you are buying 2 for the price of 1.  

The hoodies are hecka comfy too! I’ve never been a pullover bulky hoodie girl, so I don’t own a lot of hoodies, BUT this brand I want them all.  Why…they are lightweight and super soft. I put mine on with jeans and boots then out the door I go. My daughter and I have matching ones, and OMG, we look cute.  When we wore them out one day, we had three people ask us where we got them. Of course, I shared who and why they need to get one too! 

People…in 2020, let’s try our hardest to GIVE BACK!  BraveHoods hoodies make a difference and are inspirational. By the way, they have donated 7,000 Bravehoods to kids all over the country. They are more than just a HOODIE! This is my go-to shirt any day! 

Feel Good and RELAX more in 2020!

2020 should be a chill year. There is so much chaos going on inside the home, and outside of our homes when I say chaos, I mean a lot going on! I have two teens, a grumpy hubby, and a spoiled pitbull.  

I know I need to relax more, so I choose the Social CBD Lavender CBD Hemp Extract All In One Vape Pen.  Now I’ve never tried a vape pen until now, and I love it. I take CBD oils on a regular to calm my anxiety, but this was a different experience that I enjoyed. 

It tasted like lavender- now don’t make that face- it tasted good. It was super easy to use- inhale, and the end lights up when you are using it. The vape pen holds up to 200 puffs – so this will last me a bit.  I take about two hits before bed, and my sleep has been amazing. Now there are more vape pens I think I need to look into like the- Focus (peppermint) and Revive (lemon or grapefruit)! 

Now let’s talk about my Harley- almost 3-year-old pit.  He is my cuddle buddy, but when we have company over, or I’m gone for hours, this guy gets super excited.  His anxiety level goes sky high sometimes, so even his VET suggested CBD drops, which has worked miracles with his jumping and barking. 

Harley LOVES bacon, so of course, I had to get the Pets Bacon Broad Spectrum CBD Drops for him. It is 100% hemp-derived Broad Spectrum CBD extract with fractionated coconut oil and all-natural herbs and spices. So no I’m not giving my dog anything that would harm him, it helps him- a couple drops in his food when I know I’ll be gone all day or when my kids’ friends are coming over- to ease the anxiety he feels- he is far more CHILLED with Social Pets. 

Bring In 2020 with a BANG!  Feel real GOOD!

Celebration of the New Year, we are cracking open a bottle of 9 Lives Wine! We had one bottle on Christmas Day, and oh my goodness, YUMMY! I’m not the biggest wine drinker, but on special occasions, I will take a sip or two. I prefer wines that cost under $20 because that’s just me, so 9 Lives fits in that price range- $9! 

  • 2017 9 Lives Reserve Sauvignon Blanc ($9.99)-This pale, straw yellow wine has a bouquet that boasts hints of grapefruit and peach. It is fresh and well balanced with attractive fruity notes.
  • 2017 9 Lives Reserve Malbec ($9.99)– Garnet red in color, with intense and fruity with subtle floral notes. Smooth tannins and a delicate, persistent finish.

In my area (Bay Area, Ca), I can get 9 Lives Wine at Total Wine & More, so do a search, and you will be able to pick up a bottle or two near you! 

So let’s bring in 2020 with brands that are amazing and inspire people! No more wasting your money on crappy products! The Beauty Brite team will suggest more feel good products in 2020!

You Are Going To ‘Loaf’ This

A Dinner Roll Recipe That Will Be The New Family Favorite.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s Friday night and time to prepare a family favorite. Dinner rolls. Not just any type of dinner rolls. Addicting Dinner Rolls. I stumbled across this recipe a while back on Pinterest, but I would like to think of it as fate. At first I thought it was a some sort of click-bait, but then I was lead to a YouTubers channel by the name ‘She’s in her Apron’ featuring this recipe and I was smitten. So I tossed on my Coddies Bread Loafers and got to work. Might as well dress the part right??

Great Fashion Gifts For The Holiday Season

Great Fashion Gifts For The Holiday Season
Beauty Brite Disclosure

My goodness, how are we so close to the Christmas season already! I feel like I just blinked and it was summer. With the time for giving so close, I’ve found a couple of great shops to share. These are great fashion gifts for the holiday season, and I hope you love them too. So let’s get started!

Holiday Bishop Dress

Oh Baby!

This is one of my favorite shops for children’s clothing. Feltman Brothers have by far some of the most adorable clothing I’ve seen tailored to that old fashioned style. This company created in 1916, serves and strives to bring that vintage feel to the modern-day. I for one couldn’t love their clothing more! Everything I have from the company is perfect with the highest quality material.

Feltman Brothers

When I put my daughter Iris into that adorable Short Sleeve Holiday Bishop Dress my first thought was oh my word she looks just like a doll! To give the dress that added flare you have beautiful embroidery around the collar and around the bottom of the dress. This stunning dress is so beautiful yet so simple. It really is made to accent the innocence of the child, not being over the top with frills. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good fancy dress on a baby but the old fashioned look of this dress makes me think of a much simpler time of life.

Perfect for play.

If your little one is like mine, she’s all over the place. This dress allows for a full range of motion. I have found that a lot of dresses and clothes you find that are on the dressier side tend to be really tight and doesn’t stretch. This isn’t the case with any of the Feltman Brother products I have. They truly tailor to the needs of children.

Knit Hat

I decided to pair her beautiful dress with a Holiday Knit Hat which matches the lovely coloring in the dress. This adorable hat is so soft perfect to frame your child’s beautiful face. It gives them the extra protection against the cold and keep their little ears warm.

Be sure to check out some of my other favorite Feltman Brothers reviews with: Bringing Back Vintage Fashion for Kids and Sharing My Easter Traditions With My Kids. Feltman Brothers are the perfect addition to your child’s fashion needs. With something for every occasion, they would be the perfect gift for your little one this holiday season.

I Went Gray For Fashion

I went gray for fashion. Really, I did. Years ago, I bought a few pairs of skinny jeans from a 90s brand at a store that is known for being open 24/7. One of them was a gray pair of jeans. I love them. I love how stylish they are, they go with almost anything! I am also a fan of The Walking Dead and I remember seeing a character wearing gray jeans! It reminded me of my own pair of gray jeans! They were skinny jeans too! Now, it seems most of the female characters on The Walking Dead wear gray jeans! So, I am all for going gray for fashion! Let’s look at gray skinny jeans!

Deep Clean In A Green Way

I vaguely remember my laundry life before my son was born. I was doing laundry about once a week. Within days of bringing our son home, I was doing laundry throughout the day and week. It was never-ending. There are times when I try to go a few days without doing laundry and then I realize I need to wash towels or bedding or the laundry basket is too full! On my on-going mission to go eco-friendly, I prefer to use natural laundry detergent. We found an awesome line of products that offer deep clean in a green way!
