Have you ever had a staycation? Recently I had the opportunity to visit the Casablanca Resort & Casino for a short stay & it happens to be in Mesquite, Nevada! Mesquite is about an hour outside Aliante in Las Vegas where we live- & Mesquite happens to be the city my parents live. We’ve been to the Casablanca a lot but never had the opportunity to stay- so this was the perfect time for a mother daughter mini vacation! …

It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year…but it can also be kind of stressful. I love visiting & having family visit but I also adhere to a strict “sanctuary” policy. Beth time is my time! & even guests seem to agree. I often put together a goodie basket of bathroom products to make visitors feel more at home & always include something to make bath time more luxurious. Today I’m sharing one of my absolute favorites for the colder months- my DIY recipe for Honey Coconut Milk Bath. Get ready to soak away your stress & get moisturized!…
Today is a seriously gorgeous day but we’ve been inside packing. We’re prepping our move little by little & I can’t believe we’ll be living in Vegas again in a month! We’re so excited but it has definitely been tons of work. While cleaning up I picked up a bunch of items I’ve been keeping on hand throughout the house & thought it was definitely time to share some favorites including my absolute favorite pjs, some recipes here on Home in High Heels, tons of snacks, & even my new business! Keep reading to check it out!…

Aren’t online & mobile apps providing paperless coupons just the future of couponing? I love some sent to my house or from magazines but they just aren’t nearly as convenient! I’m constantly misplacing or spilling coffee on them. Really- a lot of coffee. The Walgreens Mobile App is one of the most well-designed coupon friendly apps I’ve seen & I’ve gathered up some savings to share with you today! Keep reading for mini reviews & a look at the beauty products I snapped up using Walgreens coupons from my phone!
First let’s check out the easy to maneuver Walgreens Mobile App display shall we? See the barcode at the top of this example? That’s what they scan right there in the store! You link it up with your Walgreens account so all of your rewards & such are linked as well. Once you’ve redeemed a coupon on your purchase it is gone so you have room to add in new ones! It also removes expired offers automatically which is handy! No scissors, no coupon booklets, just your smart phone!
Here’s a look at my personal picks from before my Walgreens shopping trip! Check out my estimated savings- $15! With pretty much zero effort! I always flip the app open before we head into the store because you just never know what will be on there! I was already planning on picking up more than half of these items so I saved money effortlessly. I also wanted to point out here on the right you can see lots of non-beauty options as well. Everything from home to kids to food has options & opportunities to save. The coolest part of the app for me personally besides the coupons is up at the top right- see my store’s weekly ad? My store is almost always out of these so this is super convenient for me!
Because I’m a creature of habit & love of all things new &/or shiny I had to hit the beauty aisle first. I love me some drugstore makeup! I immediately zeroed in the new Studio 35 Beauty Nail Polish Removers with the spill-proof pumps. A friend of mine on Instagram shared a rave about them recently & I knew I needed them in my life! After using them- you NEED them! So easy to use & mess free! I also picked up a new Revlon eyeliner, Covergirl nail polish, Covergirl smoochie, & two sets of EcoTools brushes which are always hits for me. Oh…& some Hershey Kisses…I had a coupon!
Isn’t this Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Polish in Violet Flicker insanely beautiful? I have it here over a base of Zoya Marney & I’m absolutely in love! I’ll have an indepth review up on Stephanie Louise- All Things Beautiful soon but I couldn’t wait to share! I used both the pump polish removers all morning for swatching & am just so impressed. Plus- they’re refillable!
On my eyes is my brand new Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Topaz which looks like a beautiful copper shade. It makes me eyes look so blue & I see myself reaching for it a lot! I used my new Eco Tools Eye Enhancing Duo Set for a barely there eye look to accentuate the eyeliner. I was most excited to try the Eco Tools Skin Perfecting Brush which is meant for BB/CC creams- & so far I’m really loving it! On my lips is my first ever Covergirl Lipslicks Smoochie in the shade #doubledare which is an orange that is extremely comfortable on the lips!
What makeup products are you wanting to try from the drugstore right now? What coupons do you look at first on a mobile app? I think it is safe to say I peek at beauty first!
Today’s post is sponsored by Tommy Bahama, but my love for National Relaxation Day is all my own!
I get poked at a lot because I rarely take some “me” time. Honestly I just don’t think about it! Half of the stuff I do that is considered relaxing is normally for blogging so I don’t really turn my brain off much. Tommy Bahama asked me what my idea of relaxing is but because I’m far from home relaxing tends to mean improvising! We’re talking no beach, no family, & not many places to get out of the house to! Want to see how I relax at home on my own? Just keep reading!
Okay I actually meant just keep reading because that’s what I tend to do- READ! I like to combine my very substantial nerdy self with my obsessive beauty self & therein lies the me time. I have a ton of books on my Kindle (my favorite reader which can be purchased from Amazon) everything from pretty much any supernatural series to tons of cookbooks to numerous magazine subscriptions. I maximize my time with beauty treatments that make me sit still- like a face mask, hair mask, or some wet toes! Check out some of my favorite relaxing items below!
So what do you need a break from? How do you chillax? How do you make “me” time more relaxing?
