Mommy Tag 2.0Β 

Yes, I’m back again with another Tag. You all need to let me know if you like these! I’d love to hear your thoughts on them! Today’s tag is going to be the Mommy tag 2.0! Alrighty let’s get started.


1. How many children do you have and how old are they? 

I have 2 girls. They are 3 and 1. 


2. What is your proudest moment as a Mom? 

I mean they are still little but honestly so far my oldest getting potty trained during the day. It was such a struggle (still can be) but she’s doing so good now! And I am so proud of her!


3. What’s your most frustrating moment as a Mom? 
Oh goodness definitely when I’ve just told them not to do something and they go and do it. It drives me up a wall. 

4. How do you discipline your children?
I refuse to spank my children. You can tell me all you want that it makes them respect you. No, it makes them fear you. Children should not fear their parents. We are supposed to protect them not have them screaming in fear if they mess up. Nope not gonna happen. We normally just use time outs. Sometimes it works. Sometimes I wanna rip my hair out. Honestly putting a child in time out for the amount of minutes that their age is doesn’t work. My 3 year old literally needs 10 minutes to calm down and think. She throws a fit for the first 5 of it so she needs that last few minutes to calm down and understand why she’s in there. 

5. Cursing, do you do it in front of your children?
Um if you say no here your lying. We all do it. I’ve just given up on trying not to. Especially since their uncle and Dad cuss more then I do. haha 

6. Do you think your relationship with your husband/SO has changed since you had children?
Umm, not really. At first I feel like we were on edge because we both were tired and worn out but we literally never fight so no. I feel like it’s kinda stayed the same.


7. Since becoming a Mom do you see yourself being more like your Mother?
Eh, not really. I feel like I am more like my Grandma in a way. I’ve caught myself saying things she would say. 


8. How are your relationships with your girlfriends?

What friends? I literally have like 1 or 2. Basically all mine took the exit when I had kids. And yeah it’s definitely changed a lot since having kids. We used to have sleepovers and go to the mall every weekend but now I see one maybe once every few months and the other I haven’t seen in years


9. What’s your favorite place to take your kids?
This is a hard question. I feel like my Grandparents. They both have such a great time up there and I feel kinda nostalgic because I loved it as a kid too.


10. Least favorite place to take your children?
Probably the Mall. So many people and my oldest never wants to leave the play place.


11. Piercing babies ears? Do or don’t?
Absolutely no. I’m not going to put a permanent hole in my kids ears if they don’t want it there. We got my oldest done at 2 1/2 when she asked for them. My youngest is 16 months old today and she won’t have hers done until she asks. 


12. Favorite Skin Care for you and your children?
They are 3 and 1 what skin care do they need other then a nice shampoo/body wash. 


13. Must have Mommy make up item? 
Hum, does chap stick count? I hardly wear makeup but I do always keep chap stick in my purse! 


14. Bath or shower? (You/kids)
I shower. But love a nice hot relaxing bubble bath every once in awhile. My kids though strictly take baths still. 


15. Are you back to your pre baby weight?
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hahahahahhaha hahaahahaha no. πŸ˜’ I wish. 


16. Collage dreams? Do you expect your kids to go to college? Will you let them make that choice for themselves?
Honestly I’d love for both my girls to go to college. So I will expect for them to at least think about it. But I won’t force them to go. It’s not for everyone. 


17. What’s the show your kids love that you secretly hate?
Oh my goodness, that stupid Alvin And The Chipmunks show on Nick. I despise it with all the fiber of my being. 


18. Cloth diapers: yay or nay?
Sorry but no. You might save some diaper from a landfill but all that water you waste washing them is equally as bad. 


19. Finish this sentence “You know you are a Mom when _____.” 
You know you are a Mom when you haven’t showered in 4 days, have cookie crumbs all over you pants, in yoga pants, with your hair up in a bun, a little bit of throw up on your shirt (it’s not your own), and you still go to the store because you need diapers. 


20. Favorite non Mom moment? (Something you love to do when you are alone.) 
Honestly I watch YouTube. Judge me. 


Hope you all enjoyed this tag! I think I may have a fall kids clothing haul soon as well! 

And as always stay beautiful everyone! 😘


I Love Fall Tag!Β 

Hey I might be a little ahead of the fall bandwagon but I really don’t care! Pumpkins, Hot Cocoa, Cozy Oversized Big Sweaters, Pumpkin Spice (yeah I’m that girl), and fall walks with my kids are the best! So let’s get started on this I love Fall Tag!

1. Favorite Fall Lip Product? 
This is a hard question for me because honestly I don’t wear much makeup. Usually only on date nights and only very minimal make up but I think my favorite Fall lip product has to be The Mint Fresh Baby Lips! My lips get so chapped during the fall with all the colds we get and the cold weather but this stuff saves me!

2. What’s Your Favorite Fall Nail Polish?
I honestly had to look up the name because I haven’t pained my nails in forever because a friend of mine always does Gel nails for me but when I used to paint them all the time this was my favorite! The Sinful Colors Courtney  Orange Nail Polish! It’s this beautiful sparkly burnt orange color and it’s perfect for fall!

3. Favorite Starbucks Fall Drink? 
Okay I’m going to be the typical girl on this one and say Pumpkin Spice but I don’t like the latte. I like the frap with a cream base and no coffee. Also they have some bomb apple cider! 

4. Favorite Fall Candle? 
This one is easy. So easy. The Pumpkin Pecan Waffle Candle from Bath And Body Works! This thing smells like candied pecans and it’s amazing! 

5. Favorite Fall Accessory?
Scarfs. Scarfs. Scarfs. Enough Said! 

6. Witch Do You Like Better: Haunted House, Haunted Corn Maze, Or Haunted Hayrides? 

Would it be totally out of the fall spirit for me to say none? I don’t like scary things. I don’t wanna be scared on purpose. Sorry. 

7. Favorite Fall Movie? 

Umm…honestly everyone will probably hate me for saying this but Elf. I know it’s a Christmas themed movie but it’s my favorite to watch during the fall and winter! 

8. Favorite Halloween Candy? 

Candy Corn! Absolutely my favorite for Halloween. I honestly like the little pumpkins better just because they are always really moist but still the same thing! 

9. What Are You Dressing Up As For Halloween?

The last few years we have only done the kids so I’ll just tell you what the girls are gonna be since I don’t know if we are dressing up or not!  Nora is going to be Minnie Mouse because if you know her you know she loves Minnie. And Elli has decided she must be a zombie this year. 

10. Favorite Thing About Fall? 

Hands down the weather. I love the cool crisp fall air. And the smell of fall. I don’t even know how to explain that but Fall has this smell that I’m addicted to. And I don’t even mean that fake smell candles give you. I mean when you walk outside on a fall evening you get this smell that just make everything better. 

11. Favorite Winter Boots?

Uggs. Yes I’m that girl again with her leggings, baggy sweater, uggs, and pumpkin spice. Bite me. They are so cozy and I will forever love them and their fluffy insides! 

12. Favorite Fall Color?
Enough said! 

That’s the end of the Tag! Hope you all enjoyed! Happy Fall! Going to be changing my blog to a fall theme soon as well! 

And as always stay beautiful! πŸ‚

Loving You

Today in a group on Facebook that I’m in a lady made a post asking if we were truly in love with our significant others. Thinking almost everyone would say yes I started reading the comments. Only a handful of the women said that they truly are. Reading the comments I started think about how you could be in a relationship with someone and not truly care for them. My heart aches for people who stay for reasons other then love. I don’t understand staying for the kids or because you don’t want to hurt the other person. I couldn’t imagine not being in love with my husband and marrying him. He’s my rock and my best friend. And everyday my love for him grows stronger. I feel so lucky that I get to wake up next to a man who loves me and my children and I love him. If you don’t have something like that with the person you are with right now then why are you with them? 

I may not be in a horrible situation like some of these women were. But I know that if you aren’t madly in love with them you need to leave. What is life if you aren’t with people who enjoy your presence and love you. Especially as a mother you need someone who loves not only you but your children as well. 

My husband is the most amazing man I’ve ever met. He loves me and both our girls so much. When we met I was very depressed and had just gotten out of an abusive relationship. He literally helped me heal so much from all of that. And to this day he does amazing things for me. Weather it be holding me while I have an anxiety attack, cuddling while we watch a movie, or getting me flowers and a card to tell me he loved me and he appreciated me. I love getting to watch him be a father to our girls and interact with them. I love how hard he works for our little family. I love his little smirk. I love his blue eyes. I love how he bugs the crap outta me when he knows he’s being a butt. I love that I can never stay mad at him because he makes me smile. I just love absolutely everything about him. 

Anyway I don’t know where I really was going with this post other then to say life is to short not to be in love.

As always stay beautiful. ❀️

Review: Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel & Tousle Me Softly Let It Loose HairsprayΒ 

Today I’m going to be doing a review for some new Herbal Essence products! I was sent these products for free from Influenster but all opinions are my own! The two products we are going to be talking about today are the Totally Twisted Curl Scrunching Gel and the Tousle Me Softly Let It Loose Hairspray. 

Let’s start off with the Curl Scrunching Gel. Honestly I was confused with this product at first. I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to help give me curls and act as like a styling Gel or it was supposed to protect my curls from the heat of the curling wand. I’ve used products like both of these before and I wasn’t sure. After further investigation it’s definitely to work as a styling Gel to help your curls hold. 

Upon opening this box the smell was amazing. It smelled like berries. And I was so excited for that. This was the one product I was excited for because of the fact that my hair never holds a Curl. Ever! My hair is straight as a poker. At our wedding I had my hair curled and it literally had so much hair spray and so many Bobby pens it took me about 2 hours to get it all out! Just so it would hold for the wedding. 

This product is a Gel. But it is not sticky. Normally I have to wash my hands several times to get the product off but this I did not at all. My hands felt like nothing was on them and it left them smelling amazing. 

On my hair it didn’t make my hair oily or stiff. Basically it looked like I had nothing on it. Witch is something I love! It recommended to put it on wet hair and style normally. So I did that. It helped so much but it made them more defined and helped it stay better. Honestly I don’t think my hair could hold all day curls but they lasted for a few hours. More then normal!  

I tried it on my oldest daughter as well just because she has such curly hair and if I don’t do something it’s crazy by noon. I just tried a tiny bit on her and honestly it worked so well! Wouldn’t use it on a daily basis but we had a doctors appointment that day and it worked perfectly for making sure her curls didn’t get tangled or get crazy in her pony tail. 
The next product we are going to review is the hair spray. Honestly I wasn’t excited for this one. I hate hair spray. So I passed this one on to my Mom. But she Reviewed it for me and this is what she had to say: 

“I tried it yesterday and I really did like it. It smelled great and it didn’t make my hair crunchy. It held pretty well. But it didn’t stay all day like it says on the bottle. But it’s also a medium hold so I didn’t really expect it to either. But overall I like it and I’d definitely buy it if it wasn’t too expensive.” 

I haven’t gotten the guts up to try it yet but when I do I’ll update in another blog! 
Anyway as always stay beautiful! ❀️

Show Review: Gossip GirlΒ 

Hey upper east side. Gossip girl here.

Wait that’s not my blog. Oops. Sorry about that. Been watching too much Gossip Girl. 

Speaking of Gossip girl I know it’s been over for awhile but I recently finished watching it and I thought I’d do a review type blog on it. I’m thinking of making this a new series on my blog. I just started Orange Is The New Black so maybe that will be my next show to review for you all. 

It may of been over for awhile but I can’t be the only person who hasn’t. So if you have just enjoy the recap. Also I will be talking about the idenity of gossip girl. If you don’t wanna see who it is then I’d click out now.

Fist off I honestly thought I’d hate this show. Starting the show I felt like it wasn’t something I’d like. But after a few episodes and all the drama throws at you (it’s a lot) I was hooked. 

My first impression of characters:

Honestly Dan was my favorite in the beginning. Chuck. Omg I hated him. His face literally made me angry. The way he acted was so obnoxious. I also wasn’t a big fan of Serena. She just seemed so flighty. But I was definitely rooting for her and Dan. Always have. Always will. I also didn’t like Nate. He cheated on Blare and that wasn’t okay. Blare, she was such a bitch. Hell she was until the last episode. I actually liked Lilly in the beginning. As well as Rufus. Jenny, was one of my favorites too. I hated Vanessa. I will never care for her. Chucks Dad is my least favorite of all the characters though. He reminds me of Dan Scott from One Tree Hill. Or at least Dan Scott from the first few seasons. 

My impression of characters after:

Let’s start with Dan again. He’s gossip girl! Seriously? It honestly made no sense even though I guessed it. In the last season I started hating him. So much. But you know what? I think I still love Dan. ❀️ And the fact that he married Serena makes me even more happy. Chuck? He slowly became my favorite guy on the show. Him and Blare are one of my favorite tv couples by far. I was rooting for them the whole show. He may of done some horrible things to Blare like selling her for a hotel and sleeping with Jenny. But he won me over in the last few seasons. Speaking of Jenny, she’s a bitch. A huge bitch. And the fact that she knew Dan was gossip girl made me angry. Nate, he became one of my favorite as well. He became a pretty good guy minus the bad business deals he made. Chucks Dad, I was honestly glad he fell off the building. Sorry. Not sorry. Lilly, the only thing that redeemed her for me was helping Chuck in the end. Vanessa left but I still hated her. Serena, well I don’t really know how I feel about her. She had grown so much but I still feel like she will always be flighty. Rufus, I still love him. He made of had a bad period with Ivy but I feel like he will always be a good guy. Ivy wasn’t in the first few season but that bitch needed to go from the start. Especially after we find out she really isn’t Serena’s cousin. 
I have to talk about the fact that Dan is gossip girl for a second. Like I said I guessed it was him but he did some awful things to himself and his family. Like why would you do that just for a blog? And it doesn’t really make any sense in a lot of situations. I started thinking it was him when Serena told Gossip Girl to meet her and Dan showed up. It obviously had to be him. 

Another thing is Chucks dad faking his own death. How on Gods earth did that son of a bitch pull that shit off? My husband called that and I was still so mind blown when it happened. I didn’t see it actually coming. 

The whole Ivy pretending to be Serena’s cousin Charile thing was just plain weird. Especially when she just kept up with it even after she got her money. 

The Dan Olivia Vanessa love triangle threesome thing. That was definitely not something I expected. Everyone acts like Dan is so ugly. So why did he end up with 2 girls at once?

Dan and Blare. I wasn’t okay with this. My husband rooted for it. But no just no. That’s just not who he’s supposed to be with. And Chuck needs Blaire. 

Rufus and Lilly have a kid together? Seriously not something I expected. And I never really got closure on this subject. It just wasn’t fully explained enough for me.

Chucks Mom. One of the bigger mysteries on the show. At least for me. Why did Bart lie? I wanted Chuck to have a relationship with his Mom so badly. I hated that she lied and said she wasn’t. I’m glad he figured out that she really was his Mom. But I wish he had found her again. 

Serena’s Dad. I hate him. So very much. I didn’t mention him in the characters because I really wanted to just talking about him himself. He turned her away, told Lilly she was still sick when she wasn’t, he lead Ivy on to get Lilly back, he was an ass to Rufus, ran from the cops, and honestly I feel like he did all of it just to get back with Lilly. Witch thank God didn’t happen. 

Over all I became obsessed with all the drama on the show and it is definitely a show to binge watch. Especially since Netflix has all the season. If you love drama or just a good story line then I highly recommend giving it a try. If you haven’t seen it and you are reading this then you already know who gossip girl is, tell me how it is watching knowing. Does it change the way the show is for you? I watched not knowing and it was a shocker. But at the same time I suspected Dan after that one episode. 

XoXo Gossip Girl.Oops sorry wrong blog again.

As always stay beautiful! ❀️


Hi, I’m Jackie and I’ve been neglecting my blog. Why? Basically….well, because life. I have two full blown toddlers. Who both of witch have been sick. Including myself with the sickness. My oldest turned 3. Yay, I’m getting old. haha And I’m pretty much laying in bed typing this because I have no energy. Why? Because I have some sort of sickness children bring home from playing with other children and it’s awful.

I guess I should catch you all up on my life the last like month. Maybe 2? Who can remember. Elli turned 3! I’ll add some pictures from her Peppa Pig Tea Party. There were pig cup cakes so that alone should get you to read on. Right?

After all the fun and festivities we all came down with some sort of sickness. First Elli, then Nora, then me. My husband has yet to get it. Lucky. Nora got so sick at one point that we ended up in ER and her getting fluids in and IV, a catheter, blood drawn, urine sample, and a double ear infection. Poor baby was miserable. Since then she’s doing better and feeling better. Thank goodness. Now I’m sick and I just can’t function half the day. But I’m a Mom so I gotta keep on keeping on.

I had a date night with my husband in there somewhere. Witch always makes me happy. πŸ™‚

I forgot there were these yummy things on Elli’s birthday two. My favorite little cupcake shop down town here!
I’m pretty sure a lot more happened but I’m too tired to really remember tonight. I’m going to promise I’ll start posting more normally! I have a review I need to do for you guys and maybe even a few other blogs you all might like! So stay tuned!

And as always stay beautiful! ❀️

My Top Ten Tv Shows

I haven’t posted a blog in a few days and I thought this would be a perfect one to get back into the swing of things with! This is going to be my top ten tv shows! 
1. Gilmore Girls

Come on guys! If you know me at all you know this is my all time favorite show. I’ve literally seen every episode 1,000 times, I own ever season, and I even have a Luke’s dinner shirt. And I am so ready for November! If you don’t know what’s happening in November we can’t be friends. haha I’m kidding. Maybe. 

2. One Tree Hill

Honestly I refused to watch this until recently and it became most definitely my second favorite show of all time! Who doesn’t love Payton and Luke??

3. Bun Heads

Did anyone else watch this show? No? Just me?  Okay. I mean anything by amy sherman palladino I will watch. Once again if you don’t know who that is I’m not sure if we can be friends. 

4. Gossip Girl

Another recent love. At first I wasn’t sure but I’ve gotten sucked in. We haven’t even finished watching all of it and it’s on my top 10 list. 

5. Greek

I feel like this was another one no one but me watched. But I still love it! It definitely isn’t for kids though

6. Degrassi 
I know this one is way more popular but still one of my favorites since I was younger. β€οΈπŸ’—

7. Full House

Another super popular one but it will always be near and dear to my heart! Who doesn’t love Uncle Jessie?? β€οΈπŸ’—
8. Summerland

I’m pretty sure most people never knew of this show but I was absolutely obsessed with it and literally annoyed the crap out of my older brother watching it! 

9. Teen Mom

This is such a guilty pleasure show for me. I literally could watch it over and over shaking my head at the things they do but I come back for more every season! haha 

10. Life Unexpected 

Literally one day I was on Netflix and saw this show and couldn’t stop watching. It doesn’t have very many seasons but it definitely deserves a slot on my top 10 list!
As always stay beautiful! 😘
