    Shhhhhh don’t tell my kiddos but I’m tiptoeing into the shower so I can have maybe 1️⃣0️⃣minutes to wash up + shave🤪. Any other mamas out there have this problem ?🙋🏼‍♀️. It’s like the minute I start to shave my legs they come running in, mom, mom so I’m always trying to go fast, ladies it’s like an Edward scissor hands movie 😬. But hopefully no more Lego Batman bandaids for this mama because my new @joy_shave razor is amazing 🙌🏽. Not only does it bring me actual joy <—- get it 😜because it’s pink 💕but it’s simple, smooth and has a great grip for easy and fast shaving👌🏼 With summer around the corner a lot of shaving will be had, so I was super happy I picked this pretty pink razor up (it also comes in teal😉) and bonus find was the glee shaving mousse to use with it 🙌🏽🙌🏽. So mamas go treat yo self with a pretty but not pricey joy razor, exclusively at @walmart or Walmart.com for $8.97, link in bio👆🏽for easy reference. ..... .... ... .. . #joyrazors #pink #smootherskin #razorswag #momprobs #hellojoy #findyourjoy #herjoycollab #ambcollab #herbpg #simple #durable #showeraccessories #succulentsandstilettos

    <—- HOLLA 🙌🏽and every week I start out with the mindset of having a good week and sure as heck notta long one🙄. This morning a man at the gym said to me as he read my shirt, “I always look forward to seeing what your shirts gonna say each morning”, (now this is probably an 80 yr old man we’re talking about) and he said, but today your shirt says it all, you always look like your having fun with your workouts and smiling so early in the morning, but always focused, to the point, and gettin’ it done ✅. To you bada$$ grandpa I say, you’ve already made my week great not just good😍and I’ll keep wearing my dumb inspo tanks for ya😆 I wish I could spend all day at the gym but this mamas gotta get it done and then✌️out . #lovemygymfamily #earlybird #useyourtimewisely #alwayshavefun ***tank from @target link in bio☝️ ..... .... ... .. . #mondaymotivation #mondaymood #momdayvibes #morningmotivation #morningroutine #workout #workoutmotivation #momswhoworkout #tankfashion #inspirationalquotes #targetstyle #targetfinds #gymlife #positivevibes #workoutinspo #momblogger #lifestyleblogger #succulentsandstilettos

    Vacation = What vacay outfits are needed🤔and these 3 were my go-to’s for sure🙌🏽. Looking at these I should just change my name to Kasual Kim with a K😉because clearly I’m all about being casual and comfy🙌🏽 I mean chasing your kids around in heels or wedges just ain’t happening <—but don’t question my abilities to do so bc I can and have done it 🤣. ☀️Trip Tip - to keep packing light, bring versatile pieces such as a denim shirt or kaftan to use as a layering piece for night or a cover up for day 😉 So go ahead and check out my latest blog(link in bio☝️)on our #manningmania vacay to #annamariaisland and all the deets on my vacay styles and where to score them 🙌🏽 #vacationmode #vacationstyle #summervibes ***closer look at styles in stories 👆🏽 ..... .... ... .. . #springbreak2019 #momstyle #casualstyle #casualoutfits #comfyclothes #layering #styleforasteal #keepinitreal #momlifebelike #momblogger #blog #lifestyleblogger #fashionblogger #influencer #succulentsandstilettos

    You’re probably wondering, what could these items possibly have in common🤔does castor oil go in coffee now 🤷‍♀️and that’s a big negative 👎🏼. Buuuuttttt my answer would be, that these items are all things that I use and are a steal for under $10 🙌🏽. I don’t now about you, but this mama gets all the warm and fuzzies when I find goodness😍 that’s inexpensive and actually works and doesn’t fall apart, so that’s why my latest blog(link in bio☝️)is #succulentsandstilettos top 10 under $10 right now 🤣because gals there’s so much goodness for under $10 that I’ll be blogging about this again 😬 !! #blog #10under #stealsanddeals @fivebelow @amazon @worldmarket ..... .... ... .. . #deals #styleforasteal #findthedeals #momonamission #dontbreakthebank #shopsmart #budgetfriendly #fashion #funfinds #keepingitfun #momswhoblog #lifestyleblogger #bloggerstyle #shopwithme #myfavs

    Tuesday Trend Alert 👀🚨What’s happening in spring home decor? Well first of all I’m hoping we can all put those throws away as the temps start to rise 👍🏻 but what better place to throw them then a cute basket 🧺🙌🏽. Not only is this a great way to make the mess of blankets, pillows and whatever else you need to hide super easy —-> you know like pet toys, your kiddos smelly socks lying around or I don’t know maybe those chocolate eggs that your trying to hide from your family😳but it’s a cute way too🙌🏽. I’m basket obsessed and not so worried about the mess 😍 ****To add a finishing touch, place a fun lantern next to it to add more texture or fill more space👌🏼. Sooooo what’s at the bottom of your basket? 🤔😁 #tuesdaytrend #homedecor #hidethemess ***shop my home, link in bio☝️for similar looks @amazonhome @worldmarket @hobbylobby ..... .... ... .. . #basketstyle #basketstorage #cornerdecor #floordecor #homedecoraddict #finishingtouches #cozyhome #casualhome #hobbylobbyfinds #myhobby #homedecoratingideas #shopmyhome #merchandiser #throwablanketoverit #lanternswag #momblogger #lifestyleblogger #thisismylife #succulentsandstilettos
