New beauty products 

Happy Thursday everyone! I made a trip to Target and Marshall’s today, and decided to pick up a few beauty products I have never tried before! I’m going to Atlanta on Sunday, and I figured why not buy a few extra things to try out while I’m gone! Here’s what I got! 


I love beauty products! I’m kind of obsessed, and sometimes it’s a problem! I can’t help myself ha.


I’ve never tried this face mask brand, but I’m a sucker for all of them! I’m obsessed with all types of face masks, and I usually do one every other night! I have this Nugg Face Mask on right now, and it smells amazing! It says to leave on for 15 minutes, and then rinse off! It looks small, but I only used about a quarter of the face mask. I’ll definitely get 2 or 3 more uses out of it!


I can’t wait to try the Vichy Double Glow Peel Mask! I found this travel section inside target and went a little crazy with the face masks! 


I LOVE the smell off this Triple Power Moisturizer! I own the full size bottle, but I bought this little travel sized one for the plane! I’m obsessed with this moisturizer! I use it every night before I go to bed! 


I’ve never used this product but I had to try it! Sea Foam face wash with coconut water and powerhouse antioxidants convinced me! I can’t wait to try it! 


No idea what this is even for! I will be googling it before I use it ha ☺️Looks awesome though! 


Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Stain🙌🏻 So excited to try these out! I love matte lipstick, these colors are too cute to pass up! 


EOS shave cream in pomegranate raspberry! I’ve never used this brand or scent, but I’m excited to shave now! (Never thought I’d say that)


I decided to grab two new Bare Minerals eye shadow pallets! I bought these at Marshall’s! Love the colors.


Sex Kitten Tarte eyeliner! I love Tarte, so I’m excited to try this eyeliner! Hopefully it lasts all day!


Is it too early to start burning Pumpkin Spice scents?? I couldn’t help myself! 🎃

I’m heading to Atlanta on Sunday, and I’ll be taking these new items with me! I’ll be sure to post what I think about everything! 

Xoxo💕

5 OPI colors I can’t live without this summer!

I love getting my nails done more than anything! I wish I could get a mani and pedi every week, but I’m trying to “save” which means I’ve been painting my own nails this summer! These have been my go-to colors this summer💗


 Currently wearing this color! OPI Cajun Shrimp is the perfect summer color. 


OPI Passion is such a sweet color! I plan on wearing this color throughout the fall as well!


Clearly I love reds and pinks! The OPI Big Apple Red always makes a statement! I love this color during the summer and during Christmas💋


OPI Tickle My France-y is such a cute & feminine color! It looks great whenever I’m tan!


Whenever I’m feeling sassy I use this gorgeous color! The Malaga Wine is one of my all time favorites! Love love love it! 


I’ve been using these super sweet colors on repeat all of summer ’17! All of these colors can be found at Ulta, Walmart, or any drugstore! Please comment below your favorite nails colors and brands of nail polish!

Date night!


Last night Mike and I decided to have a date night! We have been together over two years now, and it has been the best two years of my life! I don’t know how I’d make it in this crazy world without him💗



We started our date night at Shaggy’s! We love this place because it’s on the water in Biloxi, and their cocktails are amazing! I asked Mike to smile and this is what I got 



Mike wanted ice cream from Ben and Jerrys so of course we had to stop by the Hardrock on the way home. It was delicious!


We ended our night with a beach cruise down Ocean Springs beach! We are so blessed to call this beautiful place home💗 

XOXO😘

A Few of My Favorites

I love makeup! I’ll admit it, I’m a girly girl who gets excited at the sight of a Sephora! I love trying new things, but there are a few of my favorites I can’t live without! They help me get through those rough Monday mornings, and of course date night on the weekends! 

The first thing I do in the morning is wash my face with Olay Total Effects scrub cleanser! It seriously wakes me up in the morning!

After my face is clean, I use lotion all over my face and neck because I’m terrified of wrinkles! Next is absolute favorite! Smashbox photo finish primer is the best! It minimizes my pores and helps my make up look great all day and night! I swear by this next product! I don’t know what I would do without it! It makes my skin look flawless, and I can’t live without it! This shape tape concealer erases those blemishes and dark circles under my eyes! This product is a must-have! 

Clinique double wear face powder keeps my face looking flawless, and oil free all day! I have used this product since I was in high school! 

I admit I love to sparkle! This glow kit was sent from heaven! I stand out no matter what whenever I apply this product! 


My last go to product is the Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced! It lengthens my lashes and people can actually tell I have eye lashes! My eyes lashes are blonde and most people can’t see them unless I have mascara on (tragic). 

I honestly don’t know what I would do without these products! And I’m on the hunt for new products to try! 

Xoxo, Erika 💗

Home 

Everyone has that one unique place they call home. Ocean Springs Mississippi will always hold a special place in my heart! I’ve lived here all of my life, and I’ve made incredible memories along the way. 

The Ocean Springs – Biloxi bridge. I have a love hate relationship with it! The run is 3.5 miles there and back, but the uphill is brutal. The view is worth it though. 

I love living on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The atmosphere is like no other. I spend a lot of time on the beach and going out to the islands. I’ll do anything to stay cool during the summer. It has been in the 90s all week. Currently dying🙈 

I love going out on the boat with my friends! Some of my favorite memories this summer include island trips! 

   

Horn island never disappoints! Every holiday from April till Labor Day is spent out on the water! Not to mention every Saturday and Sunday whenever your best friend owns a boat! We are very blessed! 

xoxo 💋

Cruising through life 

Vacation

Hello everyone! My name is Erika and this is my first blog post! I’m 25 years old and I’m moving to Atlanta in August!
I love spending time with my friends, family, and my boyfriend! The purpose of this blog is to document my growth as a person, and show a little glimpse of my crazy, ridiculous life! These pictures are from a cruise I went on in December. We went to Costa Maya, Cozumel, Roatan, and Belize. It was my first cruise and I had the time of my life! 



The first day on the Norwegian Dawn! Mike and I had so much fun exploring the ship. 


Our first stop was in Costa Maya, Mexico. We did a four wheeler ride through the jungle during our first excursion. Mike had a blast slinging mud all over me! After that rough experience, we got to relax on a private beach with unlimited Miami Vices. It was so perfect! 
 

Our next stop was in Belize! We didn’t do an excursion this stop because Belize isn’t the safest place to visit! We decided to stay at the island resort, and relax in the pool with unlimited drinks! It was 3 days before Christmas, and it was 80 degrees! I had the time of my life. 



Our next stop was in Roatan, Honduras! We did a scuba diving excursion, which was a completely new experience for me! I was so scared at first, but after a few minutes I fell in love with the coral reef. I never wanted to leave the water! It was so beautiful, and crystal clear! I can’t wait to experience it again! 


Our last stop was my absolute favorite! We stopped in Cozumel, Mexico! My favorite excursion was the salsa and salsa. We learned how to make 4 different types of hand made salsa, 3 different types of delicious margaritas, and we learned how to salsa dance! It was AMAZING! Mike and I had a blast learning how to salsa, maybe a little too much fun! After that, we had extra time to stop at Senior Frogs before the ship left Cozumel! No need to explain the amount of fun we had! The pictures explain everything! 



Our last night on the 10 day cruise was so bitter sweet! We didn’t want to leave our home away from home! We can’t wait for our next vacation! 
xoxo,

Erika 💗😘🌞✨
