Be kind and love others
I’m so glad you’re here! :) On my page you’ll find a little of everything from relationships to motherhood, to good food and drink recipes, how we are styling our home and a little self-care. You’ll also find some affordable fashion because heck I can’t afford a $100+ t-shirt lol! I hope you enjoy browsing through as much as I have enjoyed making this. We are what we make of ourselves so whatever it is you decide to do in life make sure it makes you happy! Cheers to a good day!:)

Man has it been a year already! At the beginning of the year I was hoping to say it was our best year yet and so far all I can say is that I’ll report back at the end of it. For me this year has been more about learning and less about doing things, which in some ways is good. I do hope you all are learning and growing during this unprecedented time or at least thriving in the best way you know how! I wanted to write this post to tell you all why I decided to start a blog! There are two main reasons, the first reason being, and probably like most, is that I needed an outlet, something to do to break up the day. The second reason is that it would be a way for me to share what I have learned (yes, I still do have a lot more to learn), but as I’ve grown over the past several years, particularly over the last two, I’ve learned one very important thing, whatever you decide to do in life, make sure it makes you happy. I want to be happy and I want to be my best self for my daughter and her dad. I want to encourage others to do the same and without a doubt I want my daughter to know that she should always do what makes her happy. I want my daughter to see a strong and courageous woman that doesn’t allow fear, worry, or uncertainty to stop her from doing something that may bring her joy. Life isn’t always easy, but when we approach it with a lot of grit and little bit of grace we can find more joy then we imagined and thrive in even some of the more difficult times. I know the answer to “how are you?” varies based on who you ask or what’s occurring in their life, but I suppose a better question (or two 😝) would be, what are you doing now that brings you joy and if you’re not, is there something you can do now to get you there?
That’s it for now! Thanks for reading, talk soon 🙂

One question we get asked often is, “when are you two getting married?” To answer it honestly, we don’t know! :) Having so much occur between two people in a short amount of time leaves little time to really learn, grow, and develop as a couple! Our focus is to be better for ourselves, so we can be better for each other and our daughter and I know that everything happens in Gods perfect timing￼.
Love is patient, love is kind. Love does not envy, is not boastful, is not arrogant, is not rude, is not self-seeking, is not irritable, and does not keep record of wrong. Love finds no joy in unrighteousness but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”
1 Corinthians 13:4-7

What more can I say, these speak for themselves! Delicious! 😋
I use this to make my homemade chai! It’s delicious! I mix it with the oat barista blend from califia farms! If you like chai, you won’t be disappointed! 😄
Love this frother! I use it to mix my matcha teas!
Seriously keeps ice frozen and your drink cold for a long time!
Tula was/is on the rave so I tried several different products and this one is by far my favorite! I will say it doesn’t feel as hydrating because it’s a gel so if you have dry skin this may not be for you, but I definitely noticed a difference after using it for a few months :)
These DSW white running shoes are so stinkin cute and comfortable!
My initial necklace! 16 inch and comes with the 2 inch extender attached!
New summer slides! Super cute and comfortable!
Blue light glasses really do work and Target has a couple cute pairs for $10!
I love a simple T-shirt dress that can be dressed up or down! This one is only $15 at Target and if it’s too long on you it can be cut to the length you want it! Just be careful and precise if you do 😄 It also comes in other colors!
I’ve been loving this gold chain bracelet and wear it all the time! The only downside is that the gold is starting to rub off on some of it, but it may be from wearing it to bed or in the shower! I still think it’s worth it for the price :)
I love a good chambray top! It’s so good you can wear it several different ways. I have two similiar tops to this one linked and have considered getting a third haha this one is on sale for only $20!
Love these slippers! Cute, comfortable and true to size!
Been using this for a couple months now and I only use is 1-2 a week!
This is the vitamin C, B, E & ferulic serum I’ve been loving!
I’ve been using this primer for almost a year now under my makeup and sometimes I will wear it by itself! It’s so pretty and helps your foundation look smooth!
I only use makeup sponges for concealer and have heard several people talk about how good these ones are for the price so I tried them out and I do agree! Plus they’re cheap enough that you don’t feel bad switching them out often especially if you aren’t good at cleaning them 🤪
I’ve been using Too Faced for quite some time and love it! I currently wear the shade snow in the winter and porcelain in the summer. I am however on the hunt for a new foundation and will share that as soon as I find a new one I love!
I’ve been using this eyebrow pencil for a long time and love it! I wear the color taupe.
This is the rug I have in my bathroom! I should say that it’s not technically a bathroom rug, buts it works for us!:)
I get my essential oils from Revive :)
We have a couple throw blankets for the couch that are cable knit style and love them! Unfortunately, they don’t sell the exact ones I have anymore so I linked a similar one at Target :)
I have this faux fig tree in our living room and it definitely leaves a nice touch especially since we don’t have a Christmas tree up year around haha it doesn’t come in a cute decorative basket so you will have to buy something separate if you want that look :)
We have these pendant lights over our island and love them now! I thought the inside color was going to be gold, but it is more copper in person. We put them up anyways and they have grown on me :)
The frames we have on our wall currently are from walmart, but I couldn’t find them! So I’m linking similar ones from kohl’s and they are on sale!:)
My name it Katee and my baby daddy’s name is Aurelio ;) We have a baby girl together, well actually she isn’t a baby anymore, she’s two! We also have a cute, four month old German Australian Shepherd named Atticus! We bought a house together a year ago and surprise we didn’t just buy it, we had one built! Needless to say, we have done a ton in the three short years we have been together so I’ll share more detail throughout these posts. Thanks for tagging along! :)
