My Life in July 2017

Hello Everyone!

Today's post is another monthly lifestyle post. July was filled with fun and lots of humidity lol. I want to thank everyone who left a comment on my last post for my 4th blogiversary. Your kind words warmed my heart! Now Lets get started with today's post!


One of my flower crowns that I made

Natural hair life

The infamous side selfie

This is another flower crown headband that I made.

I love how these headbands that I made can go with so many of my outfits 

Fourth of July

4th of July selfie

Fruti Punch and Mountain Berry Blast Powerade. The cups are from Dollar Tree

I spent the day with my mom and she cooked ribs, corn, and mac and cheese 


Watermelon and Water have been two of my favorite things lately 

Marinated Zesty Italian Chicken Breasts, Green Beans,  and Garlic Herb Potatoes. I made this dish in June, but I forgot to add the green beans. This is such a good dish to make. 

Homemade Pizza Night

I love making homemeade pizza. Once again I forgot to show an ingredient lol. This pizza also contained sausage.

Having a glass of wine 

More Fruit

July 16th was National Ice Cream Day. This Great Value Cookies and Cream Ice Cream is so good!

A Saturday breakfast

And even more fruit lol 


A few body care essentials 

Some of the candles I picked up during the Bath and Body Works SAS

Thanks! PR Sample I received from Tree Hut. I love this mud mask and the tote is so cute and inspirational!

Whole flower crown that headbands I made for a customer. I recently started back selling my crafts locally. I want to eventually start an Esty shop. Hopefully I can get that started in the upcoming months.

A few more of my handmade crafts that I'm selling locally. 

Finally a Milani section in one of the local Wal-Mart's near my house! 

Swatch Party for my Milani Amore Lip Creme Liquid Lipsticks. I should have this review up sometime in August. 

My first Mainstays Candle from Walmart in Vanilla. I'm going to be honest I'm not a fan of this candle. It smells like burnt Vanilla and when the wax pool is almost finished burning out, the wicks join together in the center.  At least the wax burns evenly.

Blog drafting

July 29th was National Lipstick Day. I picked up one of CoverGirl's new Melting Pout Lipsticks at Walmart

I'm getting close to 1,000 followers on INSTAGRAM!

Presents from my mom and best friend for my blog 4th anniversary on July 27th

One of the cupcakes from my 4th blogiversary.  You read that post HERE

I love seeing all your photos Pilar! Congrats on being close to 1k followers on Instagram! That's exciting that you've been selling your crafts locally, and I hope you do start an Etsy shop too!! I'd love reviews for the covergirl lipsticks and the Milani ones you showed! That tote bag from tree hut is so cute!

Your cooked ribs, mac and cheese, and homemade pizza.....YUM! Every time I see your candles, I want to go out and buy one for myself. I'm a candle lover, and it's been awhile since I bought one. Bath and Body Works candles are always nice. And those flower head pieces are wonderful. You look great in them. You had a fun July, Pilar.

Thanks Marie! Glad you enjoy the posts!

Thanks Ashley! I can't believe I'm getting so close to 1k on Instagram! I love making handmade items! I hope that I will get started on Esty soon too! I have those lipstick reviews lined up. I plan on doing the Covergirl review first since it seemed to get a lot of requests on Instagram. Isn't that Tree Hut tote cute?!

Pilar said...

Thanks Sheri! I just started getting back into candle burning. I tried the Walmart candle, but I just wasn't pleased with it. I guess Bath and Body Works candles will always be my favorite! The flower headbands are some of my crafts/accessories that sell quickly!
