Big Weekend Coming up and Some Jane Goodies

Happy Thursday!!! I am so excited that the weekend is almost here!  Today, I am prepping some snack food for our College Football viewing, as well as helping Madi out at her Swim a thon that will be taking place Saturday.  This is her swim team’s biggest fundraiser of the year and all the money they raise will go towards the needs of the team and swimmers and to host meets, etc.  Madi is loving her time on the swim team.  She has stated that she would love to compete at the Olympics when they are in LA in 2028 so here we go!!!  So proud of this chick!

I have something fun to share with y’all.  It is no secret that I enjoy shopping and sharing with you guys the cutest clothes that I find on the interwebs. There are so many amazing women who own the cutest boutiques, and I am constantly in heaven, much to my husband’s horror.  He hides the wallet!

I also love a really good deal and if you have never heard of Jane.com, allow me to introduce you! I was introduced to this company last year by my sweet friend, after I asked her  about a really cute shirt she was wearing in a video. She told me that she practically gets most of her clothes from there.  I didn’t know what to expect, and I was hesitant at first because there are a lot of clothing websites on Facebook and Instagram that aren’t legit and will scam you of your money (and they aren’t even located in the US and the shipping takes forever, if it even arrives at all.)

But I have been so happy with Jane.  A lot of my favorite pieces in my closet have come from this store and I love that they partner with boutiques and small businesses and they are at a great price point!

Dress  and booties from Jane.com

Here are some pieces I am eyeing right now on their site:

Ankle Booties / 3 Colors


Ruffle Sleeve Babydoll Top

Slide Loafers with Tassel / 6-11!

Fall Floral Swing Dress!

They even have stuff for your home and your children!

Striped Turkish Hand Towels

Oversized Farmhouse Style Vinyl Designs

Personalized Hoodie Sets / 0-24 Months

(basically, I need a cute little girl to dress up!)

There are a ton of great items on this site. And a lot of these items that are shown (among others) are only available for a short period of time. It is essentially a deal site where you can buy really cute clothes, accessories, home goods, and more at a special deal and then once the time is up, that’s it! And things do sell out often on this site, so if you see something you LOVE, don’t hesitate to grab it.

You can also download the app as well, but take it from  me, that is really dangerous. LOL!

I hope you will check them out!  I would love to hear what you think.  Expect me to share a lot of deals on my facebook and Instagram when I come upon them because I truly do love this site!

Friday Favorites Roundup

Y’all, this is NOT my outfit for today. This was  back around LAST FALL/WINTER.  It is still around eighty degrees in Southern California and the weather doesn’t look to be dropping anytime soon. Which makes this Fall loving gal really sad.

Come on, California! Get with it!

In the meantime, I am dreaming of sweaters, booties, warm and cozy things for your home, and soups to make at home.

First, who watched last week’s UCLA game against Texas A&M? I thought for sure I would have to comfort my Bruin loving husband because it did not look good. That comeback game was one for the books because even I was cheering (and I am a USC fan!!!)  I love games like that!! So good!

Now for my favorites for this week.

Since Fall is slowly happening, and for some of you, the transition into cooler weather is already happening in your area, I have been browsing some of my favorite sites for pretty Fall worthy items to add to my wardrobe.  I am always on the lookout for sweaters, duster cardigans, jeans, and booties, as well as some accessories.  A lot of these are on sale as well, so if you are able, snag a few of the items you have been eying before the price goes up again!

When it comes to my home, I love switching out pillows to match the seasons.  One of my favorite shops happens to be Linen and Ivory. They have such cute merchandise so if you are looking for something festive, you definitely should check this small business out.
I love this pillow
And this one
Name that movie!!!  It is one of my favorites for Halloween. My sisters and I have always wanted to dress up as the Sanderson Sisters for Halloween. I call dibs on Winifred Sanderson.
There are a ton of beautiful pieces, so please go check them out!!!  I have these two Pillow covers currently in my home:
And Candles? Yes, we need fall scented candles in our home! Pronto!
My favorite candle scent is Marshmallow Fireside from Bath and Body Works. You guys. YAAAASSSS!
Bath and Body Works is having a special right now on these candles (regularly $24.50) but you get them for $12.50 each when you buy 2 or more.  Do it. I always stock up on my favorite scents when the three wick candles go on sale. I love having them burn in my home, especially when the weather cools down and when I am reading….or just anytime really. I don’t need permission to light a candle!
I am also dreaming of delicious soups to make during Fall/Winter months that are relatively easy, yet delicious and healthy and satisfying.  That is super important to me.
Here are some soup recipes that have caught my eye recently and I am going to make in the coming weeks:
That is all I have for today.  What are you loving this week?  If you don’t already, follow me on Insta to see what I am up to daily!

My Favorite Christmas Gifts For Those You Love

I know Christmas is about Jesus and not about the gifts.  This year, I really want to spend a great deal of time with my kids and reiterating the story of Christ and His birth and what that means for us. This is a time for joy and celebration!

That being said, I know many of you are looking for the perfect gift for those you love and it can be incredibly overwhelming and stressful.  But have no fear! I have some fabulous ideas.  This might be broken up into a few different posts (For Her, Him, Children, Teens etc) otherwise this post will be REALLY long.

With small business Saturday coming up, and today being Black Friday, I thought I would share some of the awesome deals happening from my favorite Small businesses!  I truly believe small businesses are the heart beat of the economy. Don’t get me wrong. I love me some Amazon and Target….but knowing that I can purchase from a mama or a family and that my money goes to their business and to bless them, then I am all for it. Worth paying a little more in my opinion.

Here we go!

The Essential Oils Lover: Plant Therapy

Self proclaimed addict here!! And luckily, this small company is one of my favorites!!!  They just kicked off their 25 days of Christmas daily deal today and I know I will be grabbing some of my favorite oils and diffusers in order to gift them to loved ones.

Like this Kid Safe Set (I love this line!):

kid-safe-setOr this Holiday Set:


For the Fitness Lover: CrossTraining Couture; Beachbody

Cross Training Couture is probably my FAVORITE place to grab workout clothes. They have a positive message and inspire me to work out not for my glory, but for HIS. YES!

I have a ton of tanks and tops from this adorable company, and I encourage you to check them out. Head to their blog as well to read their story of how they began, to learn more about the amazing founder, Michelle Myers, and of course, support them so that they can continue the incredible work of spreading the Gospel and inspiring others.  They are the ultimate Be a Size You company!  A few of my favorite things:



Beachbody is my job, yes, but it has very little to do with having or attaining a Beachbody.  My mission is to help women, no matter where they are coming from, to love the bodies God gave them and care for them. Self-care is a great thing!  And Beachbody’s fitness programs, Shakeology, and their Beachbody Performance supplement line have really helped me these last 5 years maintain my health and my commitment to fitness.

I want the same for every women I come in contact with. Our goals may not be the same, but we can use the right tools to reach whatever goals we are hoping to achieve.  And bonus, this week, I am having a Holiday sale. There are a ton of great programs that are available for a great price. So if you are looking to give the gift of health for a family member or for yourself this year, these will be great!  And of course, my customers get instant access to my Be a Size You Bootcamps no matter what. Because support matters.

And that’s all for now! Stay tuned next week for more gift ideas!

Are you out shopping today? What was the best deal you grabbed while you were out?!
