11 Budget Friendly Beauty Buys

Here are my top 11 favorite beauty products you can find at any drugstore or Target. I know all you makeup lovers out there could drop some serious money at a MAC counter. I swear by these inexpensive products.......I know you'll fall in love with them! Look at it this way......more money for shoesπŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ’΅πŸ‘ πŸ’ƒπŸΌ‼️

1. Elf Liquid Eyeliner. It goes/stays on beautifully and is ONLY $1.....uhhhhh.....yes, please πŸ‘πŸ™‹πŸΌ

2. Elnett Satin Hairspray. There's a reason it's a staple at red carpet events and photo shoots. It works better than other professional brands I have used.

3. Coconut oil. I use it as a deep conditioner. You can also use it with brown sugar as a natural body exfoliate. I have even used on my son as a moisturizer to help with helped faster than the expensive creams. There is literally an endless amount of ways you can use coconut oilπŸ’†πŸΌ✔️

4. Vaseline. I use it every night on my lashes and they have grown so much. I also use it as an under eye cream at night. It keeps the eyes hydrated and let's face it...if Tyra Banks has claimed to use it...why not try.

5. J.R. Watkins Hand Cream. I have tubes of this all over. I love it because it's non-greasy, but keeps my hands very hydrated. A must when you have small babes and have to wash your hand a lotπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ.

6. Burt Bees Tinted Lip Balm. I wear dramatic eyes so my go to is a nude lip color. These are great for adding a little sheer color.....without looking heavy. They look moisturized while adding a hint of color. Great for a more minimal lip....if Rachel Zoe keeps them in her can IπŸ’„πŸ‘„πŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ‘œ.

7. Elf Baked Highlighter. I love the color moonlight pearls. Great above the brow bone to help lift the eye. It lasts forever and is only $2-3 πŸ‘πŸ‘.

9.  Elf Lip Exfoliator. Don't apply lipstick on dry lips. Use this before balm/lipstick....I swear by it. At $3, it is definitely a great price and worth tryingπŸ‘„πŸ‘πŸΌ.

10. Maybelline's "The Falsies."  My favorite new Mascara!! It lengthens and separates. I am extremely picky about a mascara. It closely reminds me of LancΓ΄me's DΓ©finicils but "The Falsies" is about $20 cheaperπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’΅πŸ‘πŸΌ.

11. Charcoal and Black Sugar Mud Mask by Freeman. LOVE this mask. This mask/scrub works together to detox skin. Naturally purifying activated charcoal helps absorb oil and impurities without over-drying. The black sugar helps exfoliate away dead skin cells for softness and clarity. Plus it's great for all skin types.

10 Reasons Why This Coach's Wife Is Fired Up For Spring Football This Year......

Last year, I was in Montana with our 4 boys (Ages 13 to 5 months at the time), while my husband was over 12 hours away, going through spring football practice in South Dakota. I had done it's what we football wives just have to do....but it doesn't make it any easier. So this is why I'm happy I'm not spending another Spring ball away from my I have done as a football wife 7 other times before....but whose counting😳.

1. We are not MOVING or getting ready to.....period‼️πŸ™…πŸΌπŸš«πŸš›πŸ“¦πŸ™ŒπŸ»

2. I am not calling/searching for boxes, packing paper, or that tape gun I misplaced for the 100th timeπŸ˜œπŸ“¦πŸš›πŸ€¦πŸΌ‍♀️


3. I don't have to pack a single box this Spring. That's right.....not all moves are fully paid for. I consider myself a somewhat "seasoned" wife knowing I have packed 7 of our 9 moves....on my ownπŸˆπŸ‘°πŸΌπŸ“¦πŸš›πŸ’πŸ’ͺ🏼


4. I am not racing kids to appointments like a crazy woman before our insurance changes overπŸ˜³πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸŽπŸš¦πŸ₯

5. I don't have to get estimates from 3 or more moving companiesπŸ“‹πŸš›✔️✔️✔️

6. There won't be any hodgepodge meals on our dining room table to clean out the fridge. Chicken nuggets, pancakes, and meatballs is kind of a dinner.......right??? A mama with 4 kids does not throw awayπŸ₯žπŸ—πŸπŸ€”

7. The boys actually get to see their  Dad....and he gets to come to their activities. Sorry FaceTime is not the same. Spending months at a time apart isn't easy on any of us😒

8. I have my husband to help with our team. Let's be real, with four kids it's always zone coverage, but it's always nice to have an extra set of hands to helpπŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸΌ❌⭕️🏈

9. People actually believe I have a husband. He's around and he's real....people tend to make you feel like he is an imaginary figure when you are living in two different statesπŸ‘°πŸΌπŸˆπŸ€΅πŸ»❤️

10. FOOTBALL!!! I mean come's been long enough since our season ended. This coach's wife is ready for a little taste of what to look forward to next football season. GO Jackrabbits!! πŸ’›πŸ°πŸ’™πŸˆπŸ’πŸ‘°πŸΌπŸš«πŸš›πŸ“¦πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘¦πŸ»πŸ‘¦πŸΌ
