My Favorite Tortilla Soup!

I love love love tortilla soup! With this past weekend being nothing but cold rain and wind, it felt necessary to make it! This soup is quick, easy, and full of veggies!
Let’s jump right in!
First, heat up some olive oil in a large pot. To the olive oil add a diced red onion and a tbsp on miniced garlic. Sauté onions till slightly translucent.

Then it’s really quick from here!  You simply add two cans of fire roasted tomatoes and two cans of green chilis to the pot.  Then a bag of frozen corn and one to two cups of frozen or fresh carrots depending on your preference!

I love this Roasted Corn from Trader Joe’s! Yum!

At this point when you look down into the pot you’re probably questioning why did I ever try this, because yes, it will look not look appetizing. But trust me folks it gets better!

To your mixture add the juice of one lime and 1 1/2 cartons of low sodium chicken broth! Make sure to season well with pepper and salt!  Keep in mind I use low sodium chicken broth, if you would like to skip adding salt I would suggest getting regualr chicken broth or even one of both!   Also, If you like heat slice up a jalapeño and put that it there as well!

Next bring this to a simmer.  While waiting take a rotisserie chicken and shred the meat for the soup.  Let the soup simmer for about 20 minutes and then lastly add the chicken!

Gunner LOVES chicken, so this begger eventually got a small piece!

I have lovely greasy fingers right?

Stir in your chicken and let it heat through and you are good to go! Put some of your favorite toppings out and holler at your family or friends and get ready to enjoy!

I told y’all this was super easy!  This soup is one of my absolute favorites!  I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!  Thanks for stopping by! XOXO!

P.S. I’m new to Spotify, and I’m loving it so far!  Does anyone have any good suggestions for stations!


My Top 7 Drugstore Makeup Items!

Let’s be honest, makeup can get expensive really quick when you are in Sephora or Ulta.  How do you get the look of high end make up on an affordable realistic budget?  You head on down to Target.  I have acquired slowly a bit of high end make up over the years and I am always surprised when I find my self using my drug store favs.  I have to be honest I am usually reaching for these more often than not.  Just so you know my skin type is dry and sensitive so some of these things might react differently your skin type.  Okay let’s get to it!


This foundation is my FAVORITE.  I have tried highend foundations and nothing compares.  It is a medium coverage and feels so light on the skin!  This also doesn’t break out my sensitive skin; I love it!


This concealer has been on the market for awhile now and hasn’t lost any popularity at the drug store and its easy to see why.  It covers dark under eyes and quickly conceals blemishes.  This concealer offers pretty decent coverage and seems to last for about 6-8 hours.



I don’t hear many people talk about this blush and maybe because it is difficult to find, I have only found it at Ulta.  Let me just say though that this blush is EXTREMELY pigmented and last all day long!  Essence offers a small range of colors but they are powerful and worth it especially if you are on a budget!  These bad boys ring up at less than $5 a piece!


LOVE this powder!  I use it in the shade transparent.  It does have quite a bit of all out so careful if you are wearing black when applying this but other than that this powder has zero down falls!  It keeps me matte all day and keeps my make up in place perfectly!


This mascara is my ride or die, I cannot live without this in my bag!  It is inexpensive and performs like a high end mascara!  I absolutely love the formula and like that I can build up my lashes to my preferred thickness.  It is important that you understand there is a difference between “Great Lash” and “Great Lash Lots Of Lashes”, don’t ever say I didn’t warn you!



I have been using this brow pencil for a few years now.  It is my favorite drug store brow product but I must say this product can feel waxy and tug at your brow when applying sometimes.  This product offers great pigment and really last all day long.  This pencil last me a couple months and comes in a pack of two for under $5!  It is a great buy!


This liner has its ups and downs.  This liner in not consistent in its formula.  So you are probably wondering why did I choose to put this on my list.  It’s simply because when this liner is a great formula it performs as well as a high end liner if not better.  It stays on all day, and is extremely opaque.  I have bought a couple of duds over the past few years but this liner is very inexpensive and you can always return it for a new one.

I am wearing all the products listed above in this photo! Love them all so much and excited to see if any of you give them a try!

Okay y’all I shared with you my top 7 products I can’t live without.  Now I want to hear yours!  Have y’all ever tried any of these?  If so did you like or dislike them?  Thanks for stopping by! XOXO
