Mermaid Theme Room

I came across the most amazing Inn a few months ago while scrolling on Instagram! The name of the Inn is Black Swan Inn and it is located in Pocatello, Idaho.

I went back in December and I was blown away about how gorgeous their Mermaid room was! The room was beautiful and had the most comfortable bed and a heater which kept us warm and toasty. There was also a darling heart shaped tub that fit two people. Above the tub is a speaker so one can easily watch aa show from there. We watched Greys Anatomy at night night while taking a bubble bath.

If you decide to check this place out make sure to bring fun outfits for photos! They have an amazing selection for breakfast in bed so come hungry.

Valentine’s Day DIY Outfit

Looking for a fun creative Valentine’s Day outfit? Look no further. This DIY cost me a total of $15.

Items needed for this DIY: conversation hearts, a glue gun, glue sticks, and old clothing (or any clothing you wouldn’t mind using). I got the conversation hearts and glue sticks from the Dollar Tree. The top and skirt were on my to donate bags so I decided to repurpose them for this outfit.

This DIY is super simple! All you need to do is separate the hearts by colors, and then super glue them to your clothing. Fair warning this DIY took me about 5 hours but it’s my favorite DIY to this day!

Girly Winter Outfit

Hi! I am officially going to be posting multiple times a week from now on. Today I wanted to share one of my all time favorite outfits!

I found the perfect ombre jacket for under $40 and yes, it does keep you warm! I paired it with a classic white tee and an adorable lavender tennis skirt. When I saw these glitter tights I was in heaven! I mean can they get any cuter? I wore my comfortable sock heel booties which never hurt my feet even when I wear them all day long. Lastly, I added my favorite beanie which was one of my top ten things I bought in 2020. I wore this outfit around Utah and was completely warm and fine all day.

These photos were taken at the Outlets at Traverse Mountain. This spot is hidden next to Auntie Anne’s and H&M.

Must Have Bath Product – Hallu

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about my favorite bath products! If you are like me and love baths, these products are a must have. This blogpost is sponsored by Hallu but as always I am completely honest about the products I receive. I received the products over a month ago and use them multiple times a week because I truly love them!

Here are all the products I will speaking on. If you use code AshleySave20 you get 20% off in case you’d like to buy anything!


I am going to start with my absolute favorite product which is the Hallu by Peyton Interlocking 2-in-1 Shower & Bath Bombs. The bath bomb not only smelled amazing, but turned the water a gorgeous shade of pink which happens to be my favorite color! It turned out to be the most beautiful and relaxing bath I ever took. The shower bomb really got my shower steamy and smelled amazing as well.

Next is the Hallu Cosmic 2-in-1 Shower & Bath Bombs. The bath bomb turned my bath water a gorgeous blue and smelled out of this world. Much like the previous product, the shower bomb created a lot of steam and a wonderful smell. The glitter on it made it so magical as shown on my hand.


Do you love bubble baths? I do and have since I was little. I tried the Hallu by Peyton Silky Soft Bubble Bath and the Hallu Cosmic Moon Float Milk Bath . Both created fun bubbles and had their own delicious smells.


If you like bath bombs that don’t really change your water color the Hallu by Payton XO Bath Bomb is for you. It smells heavenly and comes with fun metallic tattoos. If you use more than one bomb, or use less water than I did it will probably change it to a brighter pink as shown on the site.

There is also a Hallu Cosmic Bath Bomb that truly turns your bath into a work of art! I unfortunately lost my photos of it but you can see them on the site. The fragrance on top of the colors make it quite an experience!


Lastly, I tried the Hallu by Peyton Geode Bath Bombs. I have collected geodes since I was 7 so I was beyond excited to try these bath bombs! They are super shimmery and contain floating salt crystals. It was so fun to see it dissolve and hold the crystals in my hand. These baths really lifted my mood.


I hope you enjoyed this blog post! Let me know below if you are going to try any of these products! And don’t forget to use code AshleySave20.

BabbleBoxx Review

Hello!

Today’s post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx. I recently received a box filled with a bunch of amazing products which I thought I’d share with you all!

Here is a glimpse of everything that came in the box that I will be talking about.

IMG_2998


Let’s start with my personal favorite, shoes! If you’re like me and have a shoe obsession you’ll definitely need these REEF shoes, as they are spring essentials. The white sandals are called the REEF Cushion Sol, while the slide-ons are called the REEF Escape Mule TX. Both of these shoes are not only stylish, but they are beyond comfortable too! I own a lot of REEF shoes and they are perfect for quarantining, walking around, and much more.

For reference the REEF Escape Mule TX is lined with a footbed and with anatomical arch support, so they are perfect to wear all day. The REEF Cushion Sols are made with vegan leather straps and a high rebound footbed that bounces with every step.


Next up is Erin’s Faces products! I was able to try their Matcha Mascara and Fair Trade Tinted Lip Balm in Crushed. Use code SPRINGTIME10 for 10% off now until May 31.

The organic matcha mascara came to be when Erin partnered with Encha Organic Matcha, the gold standard for matcha. Many studies have said it can strengthen hair which everyone loves. This mascara also has plant based fibers that make your lashes appear longer which I love!

This amazing lip balm has organic castor seed oil and organic beeswax which nourishes chapped lips. I have extremely chapped lips and I love using this to help with that while adding a fun color. There is also fair trade cocoa seed butter which makes this lip balm not feel waxy at all. Lastly there is organic peppermint oil and organic vanilla so it smells and tastes absolutely delicious!


If you have not tried Nail Polish from OPI where have you been? Ok, all jokes aside I have been a huge fan of nail lacquer from OPI for years now. I love that their nail polishes are very durable since they are thicker which thus leads to it being chip resistant. OPI has over 200 shades to pick from which is why I have always been a fan, because I love trying new fun colors. Plus, their nail polishes dry super quick. I applied my nail polish and within 5 minutes they were completely dry!

I used the color Let’s Celebrate which is the cutest pink sparkly shade!


Blue light lenses, do they work? Are they worth it? I received a pair of Blue light lenses from Zenni and I really love them! As someone who is always on their computer and phone I can say these really do help, not to mention they are extremely cute. I wear mine everyday. They are high quality and have a wide variety of blue light and prescription glasses starting as low as $6.95 so you can find the perfect pair.

These glasses really help my eyes not feel tired, irritated, or blurry. I love the color and design of these!


CBD products have recently become very popular and I am all about it. When I saw there was Infinite CBD gummies and hand sanitizer in the box I was so excited. The hand sanitizer that is lemon scented is formulated to reach the maximum surface area to eliminate as many germs as possible. This is extremely important, especially during this time.

I got a bag of Asteroid Gummies, and Sour Asteroid Gummies. Both smelled and tasted amazing. These gummies are the perfect pick-me-up to get you through the day whether that be a morning treat or bedtime snack.

As soon as I opened the box my eyes directly shifted to the Swig Life cooler and cup because of their amazing prints!

The skinny can cooler keeps drinks cold for up to 12 hours, is dishwasher safe, and has triple insulation. The stemless wine cup keeps drinks cold up to 9 hours and hot up to 3 hours, much like the cooler it is also dishwasher safe and has triple insulation technology.

Check out these prints! They have a lot of options. You can get 10% off when you shop using this link.


Last, but not least I’d like to talk about the LiftActive Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoule Serum from Vichy.  All Vichy products are formulated with their proprietary Mineralizing Water, from the French volcanoes, rich in 15 minerals to fortify and protect the skin against daily aggressors like pollution, stress and fatigue. And let’s be honest we all need that!

This serum is formulated with only 10 ingredients which include Vitamin C, Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid, and Plant-based Phyto peptides. The formula targets visible signs of collagen loss, wrinkles, lack of radiance, and firmness. Sign my skin up for this! My skin felt really hydrated after using it for only the first time. Also, it’s been clinically prove to make your skin look smoother in 10 days, and in a month visibly reduce wrinkles, and resurfaces skin texture.


Thank you so much for reading this blog post! Let me know if you try out any of these products! I will be doing a 3 month update on Vichy so watch out for that.

 

NBC Good Girls

Today I’m partnering with InfluenceHer Collective and NBC to talk to you about one of my favorite shows Good Girls! Season 3 returns to NBC February 16th so you can now watch it!

Spoiler alert!

This show is about three women–Beth and Annie (who are sisters), and their best friend Ruby. The three of these women get fed up with playing by the rules and not being able to afford what they need. Beth’s a stay at home mom with a cheating husband who finds herself in financial ruin. Ruby is happily married to a police officer but can’t afford to pay her daughter’s medical bills. Annie is a single mom who is in a custody battle with her ex and can’t afford it due to working a minimum wage job.  They decide to take control of their lives and hold up a local grocery store where they steal a bunch of money. After this they find themselves very deep in the crime world where they keep trying to escape.

Season two ended on a huge cliff hanger, so I am super excited to watch season 3! It should be a really awesome season after everything that has happened! So make sure to watch season 3 now on NBC! If  you have not seen season 1 or 2 you can find it on Netflix.

Here is an awesome video in which Kelz joins die-hard Good Girls fans Leli Hernandez, Brittany Hampton, and brandi King as they dig into the crimes on the girls’ records.

Let me know if you’re already a Good Girls fan or if you’re about to go watch it!

Airbnb Dream Home – The Funky Loft

Who’s stayed at an Airbnb before? Chances are most of you have. I have stayed at various before, but I never thought much of any of them. That is until I stayed at The Funky Loft which is located in Brooklyn, New York. It is honestly the cutest, dreamiest, most bohemian place I have ever seen! Not to mention there is a swing! I mean can it get any better? Also, the women who live there are seriously the sweetest and provide complementary breakfast. They had Lucky Charms which is hands down my favorite cereal. There is music bumping most of the afternoon which consisted of mostly oldies which is my favorite!

This amazing Airbnb is located in Brooklyn and is super close to a subway (About 5-10 minute walk). I stayed here with my friend @michellemakingmoves. We got a 7 day subway card and went to DUMBO, and walked across the Brooklyn Bridge. We also went to Times Square, and the Flatiron building by taking the subway. This is a great place to stay at when visiting New York because of how cute, convenient, and cost friendly it is. Make your Instagram New York dreams comes true by staying at The Funky Loft next time you’re in New York! @thefunkyloft

Galentine’s Day Party

Today’s blog post is sponsored by Vanilla Gift Cards.

Are you looking to throw the perfect Galentine’s Day party? I just threw one and it was a huge success!

I started off with decorations which I picked up at my local dollar tree. I was able to get a blow-up LOVE balloon with a bunch of heart balloons. I also picked wine glasses, Valentine’s Day cards, and a bunch of candy.

I then went to Target where I picked up a heart shaped waffle maker and heart shaped plates. I picked up a bunch of cookies, and macaroons there as well.

I got my charcuterie board and laid out a bunch of candy, cookies, and macaroons. The girls absolutely loved it! (And so did my husband lol).

GIFTS! The perfect gift for any party is definitely gift cards. That’s why this this Galentine’s Day party I used Vanilla Gift Cards. They come in a variety of beautiful styles to pick from as shown. These gift cards are honestly the best because they are super cute and allow each guest to spend it how they like it. As we all know women are super picky with what they want, so these would be a huge hit! You can use code Ashley for no purchase fees!

I hope this blog post gave you some inspiration for what to do at your Galentine’s Party. Remember to get the perfect gift by getting Vanilla Gift Cards. Let me know in the comments below how you are celebrating Galentine’s Day.

Heritage Store’s Rosewater Products!

Hello! This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com on behalf of Heritage Store! Today I am talking about Heritage store’s rosewater products. Heritage store sells timeless effective self-care products.

A little background about the company–Heritage store was established in 1969 in which the store draws from the natural wisdom of Mother Nature, and the heritage of world healing traditions to create effective self-care products. Heritage Store believes that beauty is self-confidence that emanates from the connection of mind, body and spirit.

Let’s get into my three favorite rosewater products. I received the Rosewater & Glycerin Spray, the Rosewater Ritual and Rosewater Facial Toner.

IMG_2012

Rosewater & Glycerin Spray

This is an amazing product that can be used various different ways such as a face and body lotion. It can also be used to add shine and vitality to hair. Use as a setting spray after applying makeup, or use after the gym for a cool down. I personally love using it as body lotion because it hydrates my skin really well!

 

Rosewater

The next product is called Rosewater and is my favorite of them all. It is all-natural, cruelty free and only contains rose hydroessential Oil and water. This spray can be used as a perfume, body splash, and setting spray. You can also add it to your hair rinse or body bath! I personally love to use it as a perfume because it gives off such a natural and fresh smell that is perfect to use all day long.

 

 

Rosewater Facial Toner

Lastly is the amazing rosewater facial toner. It is an oil-free hydrating formula that gently removes debris and residue to help keep a natural and healthy glow. It helps combat dryness, and diminishes overall appearance of fine lines and cleansing pores. I use this every night after I wash my face by putting it onto a cotton ball and applying it all over my face. It’s become a staple part of my daily nighttime skin care routine.

 

All of these Heritage products can be purchased online, as well as in store at Whole Foods, Sprouts, Lucky’s, Fresh Thyme, Natural Grocers, local co-ops, Target, Ulta, and Urban Outfitters! Be sure to check them out when you get a chance! If you buy any of the products be sure to let me know what you think about it!
