Current Skincare Routine and all time faves

I get asked about my skin quite often, and I don’t know if it helps or hurts me to say, “I treat my skin like crap, sleep in my makeup, get too much sun, only use my products when I remember to, etc.!” BUT, now that I’m in my 40s (41 to be exact), I’m realizing more and more that…

Wal-Mart try-on size large

I’ve given you suits from Amazon, Summersalt, Trina Turk, Albion Fit, Boden and Target so far this year! PHEW! I tried to find affordable suits, cute suits, flattering suits, suits in solids and in prints, one pieces, and bathing suits with cutouts! I found suits that were a little pricier than usual, and some that our wallets love! Which leads…

Size Large swimsuit try-on Boden, Summersalt, Albion Fit & More

I absolutely LOVE doing my swimsuit try-ons for you! In year’s past, I’ve stuck to what I know best….BUDGET suits! Listen, I’m a budget girl…name brands don’t do much for me, and my bank account appreciates that 😉 But I always hear peeps saying, “but those expensive suits are made so much better,” “those expensive suits are cut differently and…

Best Amazon Swimsuits of 2022!

I swear the bathing suit try-ons are happening earlier and earlier each year! I listened when yall told me you were trying to buy some before Spring Break, and got my butt in gear! In years past I’ve done one BIG bathing suit try-on/post, but this year I’m going to separate them by where I ordered them from! So if…

Most Popular Amazon Items of 2021!

All the cool kids were doing it, so I had to get in on the action! I ran my Amazon affiliate report for the entire 2021 year to see what were the most purchased items by my readers, followers, and peeps! I wasn’t shocked in the slightest by the top 25 items, but I was shocked at the sheer quantity…

2021 Ultimate teen tween gift guide

It’s that time of year!! Time to figure out what to buy the kids in your life between the ages of let’s say 10 and 18ish! Think nieces, nephews, grandkids, godchildren, your own kids, and every other kind you may have on your list! I know what you’re thinking…’they just want a new cell phone!’ And maybe that’s true, HA!…

How to whitewash a brick fireplace with 2 products in 2 hours

When my sister moved into her house, she had me over and pointed out the things she couldn’t wait to change. One of those things was the fireplace, which was a reddish brick. She knew she wanted it whitewashed, as she’s a farmhouse-loving kind of girl (think a lot of LIVE, LAUGH, LOVE up in there). And it was going…

our cross-country american road trip

It’s always been our dream to take our minis on a cross country road trip, Griswold-style, but our destination wasn’t Wally World! LOL! It was the Santa Monica Pier, specifically, they wanted to skateboard and roller skate on it. So we pointed our 4-Runner west, and took I-40 nearly the whole way! In this post, I’m going to outline the…

Summer must-haves on a budget

I’ve done the swimsuit post, and the cover-ups post; I’ve shared my favorite sangria recipe and the best salsa/dip in the world here! All are summer staples in our house, but there are a few random things that I’ve gathered along the way that are clutch during the summer months! And here in NC, these HOT months can span 6-8…

About Me

About Me

Hey Peeps!

I'm Miranda, and I'm formerly lots of things (I sold dumpsters, fro-yo, and car parts to name a few), but most recently I was a cakery owner of Got What It Cakes. I'm a mom of two daughters whom I call my "minis,” and the wife to Joshua, whom I call "Stud" (yes, he's even in my phone under that name). Most days you can find me oversharing about my insane life on my InstaStories, in a segment I call "carpool confessions." Follow along as I decide what to be when I grow up, while I navigate my other love, the queen city of Charlotte! I also tend to go by "Mayor Miranda," and am awaiting my key to the city ;) Read More

xo, Miranda
