Grocery Haul + Shop with ME! |Chelsea Fore

Untitled design

Today I have a grocery haul for you all!

Hopefully, you like grocery hauls as much as I do, lol! Or you won’t be too excited for this post!

Being only 2 weeks (YIKES) from the first day back to school, I have been “momming” things up around here! What I mean is, trying to get back to a normal routine and doing all the mommy things.

Trying to get the kiddos back on a nightly routine, getting dinner cooked before 8 or 9pm, de-cluttering every inch in my house (which I still have TONS to do), finishing some house projects, (so we can start more lol), AND trying to get my grocery budget and meal plans back on track!

So a lot has been going on but it’s nothing that the good lord doesn’t think we can handle.

Just about all summer, I haven’t tracked my grocery budget, and we have not been eating the healthiest. You could say we all enjoyed Summer Break just a little too much.

But I am certainly getting things back on track! And I have soo many plans for my blog and youtube, I just can’t wait to share everything with you!


Anyways… back to the grocery haul. ( I am the best at getting off topic).

I went shopping at my small local grocery store a couple days ago, which I don’t usually shop at too often (I’m a Walmart girl) but I needed a few things to complete my meal plans out for the next week to two weeks.

I’m just trying get by with majority of what we have in the pantry and freezer, using up as much of it as I can, and hopefully purchasing just filler and staple items.

Next month, I am planning on doing my LARGE grocery hauls, where I only have to shop maybe 2-3 times the WHOLE month! Fingers crossed it works out because that makes things soo much easier for me!

So anyways, I don’t have pictures to share with you, because I didn’t take any. (Also because I found my cameras battery charger the day after I went shopping.) But instead, I filmed/vlogged my shopping trip and haul. I will link it below if you are interested in watching it. The picture quality is not the best, but I am pretty proud of my editing skills.

Some stuff wasn’t on my list that I needed, but I got it anyways for whatever reason.

So this is the first of many grocery hauls, well technically this is my second. If you want to see my first grocery haul, check out this post! 

I also wanted to quickly give you a glimpse at our meals for the next week or two. I don’t have any sort of system that I follow.

I just try to use what I have on hand and buy the extra things I need to complete the meals, if necessary.

I don’t do a specific meal for a specific day. I basically look at my list, which is similar to what you see below, and I pick whichever meal I’m feeling at that time! Soo organized, I know! lol

Breakfast: Served with fruit and/or yogurt

  • Pancakes or waffles
  • French Toast
  • Cereal
  • Eggs and Bacon
  • Omelettes
  • Oatmeal


Lunches: Served with fruit, veggies, crackers and/or cheese

  • Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
  • Sandwiches
  • Hot Dogs
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Quesadillas


Dinner: Served with side or veggies, salad, potatoes, and/or rice

  • Tacos
  • Spaghetti
  • Mexican Style Pork Chops
  • Baked Chicken
  • Shrimp Alfredo
  • Steak


Thats about as basic as it gets, oh and sometimes we have leftovers and we will eat that or i’ll turn the leftovers into a totally different meal. For example if I have any chicken left over from a baked Chicken night, I’ll save it and make Chicken quesadillas for lunch the next day.

We just try not to waste any food and with 3 growing boys and my manly husband we really don’t waste much.. AT ALL!

So that about wraps it all up. I hope you guys enjoyed my grocery haul. If you watched my video please leave me a comment below and let me know what you thought about it!

Also, my giveaway is still going on!!! Check out this post! It ends on August 25th so Please Enter!!

Have a great week friends! See you in my next one!



FINALLY! My Big Giveaway!!

Hi Everybody!

I hope to find you super happy and super excited today! Why?

Because I’m finally (FINALLY) doing my giveaway! I know, it’s about time!

I’ve only been talking about it for months!!


But it is here and I’m so so excited to be doing this! Because I love you all and genuinely want to give thanks for all the love and support you all have given me. The WordPress community is soo nice, helpful, and inspiring and I love being apart of it! This giveaway is in celebration of reaching 100 followers on my blog! Day 1 I thought it was probably impossible but here I am at 150 followers! You guys are awesome!

Anyways, let’s get on with the giveaway…

I’ve looked deep into all the dirty details on “how to host a giveaway”, and I’m choosing to do it my own way and then using a random generator to pick the winners. Yes I said WINNERS as in 2 people!!!

Since my following is still considered “small” (which is weird, because I feel like it’s very large) I’m not really going to abide by all the so called rules that others suggest.

Instead, I’m doing something called the “honor system” lol! As in, I trust you and you trust me. If you can’t follow the rules, you’ll be disqualified and probably banned from future giveaways.

So let’s go over the rules then:

  1. MUST be following my blog. (
  2. MUST be following my YouTube. (
  3. Gmail

    And MUST be following my Instagram. (@mrsfore_ever)

  4. You don’t have to follow my Twitter but I use it a lot for announcements. (@ChelseaForeB)

So that’s it! That is all you HAVE to do to WIN! If you want bonus entries all you have to do is repost my giveaway pic on Instagram, tag me, use my giveaways hashtag, and comment done so I can check!

This giveaway is open to everyone worldwide, so please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!!

By now I’m sure you’re wondering when will it end and when will the winners be announced!

The start date is TODAY (8/3/2017) and ends Friday (8/25/2017). The winner will be announced probably the 25th or 26th!

So I think that’s everything. This is totally free! Not sponsored at all, I purchased everything myself and I will be paying to ship it out. But the winners address is required.

Okay, Let’s go over the Prizes!!



So a few months back, I told y’all that I was going to do a “Chelsea’s Makeup Bag” as the prize. Well I stuck with the theme for sure, but instead of picking only MY favorites, I picked a couple of my actual favorites and the other items I just tried to pick stuff that I thought would work with everyone. Because we’re not all the same, we know that lol! So I’m hoping there’s stuff in there that everyone can be excited about!

In the picture above, the 2 makeup bags are actually pencil pouches that I thought were too stinkin’ cute! They’re a good size and actually have a thin lining inside!

And in the pictures below these are the items inside each bag. Basically the same items, just some are in a different variation or shade. Everything is brand new unopened!

Each Bag Contains:

  • Miss Spa Sheet Mask (in either Brighten or Detoxify) *my pick*
  • Soo Ae My Collagen Hydrogel Lip Patch
  • e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator in Mint Maniac *my pick*
  • e.l.f. Blending Brush *my pick*
  • Hard Candy Eye shadow Palette (in Naturally Gorgeous or Pinking Of You)
  • e.l.f. Baked Highlighter in Moonlight Pearls *my pick*
  • Rimmel London Lipstick (in 120 You’re All Mine or 700 Naughty Nude)




Okay I think that’s everything… I hope! If you have any questions or if I confused you, please leave a comment down below! I hope you all participate and well..

May the odds be ever in your favor…

hahaha, I had to!!

Bye guys!!

Trying To “Rant” Myself Out of a Funk!

Hey friendly friends!

Today and actually since I got my new desk top, I have been on such a writers block.

I know what I want to write but I almost feel like I’m putting too much pressure on myself to get the ball rolling again. It’s really strange how life works.

I felt totally lost when my laptop crashed and all I wanted to do was sit down with a cup of coffee and type… for days lol! But I couldn’t and I guess after a few days I adjusted to living with out my laptop. Even thought I still missed it. But Here I am now with a huge intimidating desk top and I have no words lol. Like I literally stare at the screen and think “now what?!”.

What do you all do to really get the thoughts flowing? How do you get yourself pumped up for your next post?

It’s not that I don’t want to write.. I really do. I’m asking for advice but I’m also typing this out to try to make myself work, lol!

If that makes any sense at all..

I have lots of plans and ideas, but for some reason I feel like my thoughts are restricted. Maybe I have my mind on a subconscious hold that I cannot control.

Thinking back, it was kind of refreshing to not worry about when my next post was going to be or even when I would write it.

I wasn’t worried about gaining followers or losing them. I wasn’t thinking about social media period! I wasn’t wrapped up or consumed with the latest YouTube videos or tweets.

BUT at the same time, I missed it! I’m ready to get back to work and to create content that I am really proud of! I’m ready to juggle my “work” schedule with all my other schedules going on.

BUT, it’s not coming out!! Help! I need some motivation or some influence. Maybe some sort of encouragement to get this momma out of the trenches!

Idk, this is just a little rant that I’m hoping to get my creative juices flowing. Maybe if I write out a couple of bad posts, I’ll step my game up! Lol idk!

Anyways, I hope you’re having a great week! If there’s anything you miss seeing on my blog or any request, PLEASE feel free to shoot me some ideas!!

Love you guys all around the world and back!





My June Favorites Via YouTube!!

On my semi-short absence, i never got around to posting my June favorites. I did film it though right before my computer crashed.

Soo it’s all edited and uploaded!!

Click Here To Watch It!

I hope you click the link above and check it out! It’s my very first video where I’m talking to the camera!! I was super nervous to actually upload it, but that was just me letting my crazy anxiety take over and believing the worst would happen.

But all of you motivate me more and more! And your love and support is so generous and uplifting.. I’m so lucky to be a part of such a supporting community. Because let’s be honest, things on the internet can turn negative and ugly fast.

Anyways!! Thanks thanks and more thanks!!

See you later!


I’m Back! | Refreshed and Jumping Back In! |Giveaway Update!

Hey Sweet Friends,

I’m actually really excited to be typing this post out. (On my new desk top, I might add.) And I’m honestly not bragging… I’m just really really excited to be back, up and running,  on a strong dependable computer while my laptop is in the shop!

It feels like it’s been soo long since I’ve gotten to sit down with my own thoughts and collect myself. These last two weeks have been extra EXTRA rough! And no I don’t mean without a computer.. With many other things that I’ll choose to share here when I feel ready and capable to actually talk about them.

But any prayers and/or positive vibes sure would be appreciated if you could send them my way and my family’s way!

Anyways, I’ll keep using this blog as my sort of therapy, just as I started it out to be. But also at the same time, I feel refreshed and rejuvenated to really grind down and get back to what I love doing and that’s this blog and my newest baby YouTube channel! I feel like I’m ready to take it up a notch and take it a little more serious and see how far I can get by the end of the year!

I’ve got some goals in mind and I think I’m ready to write it down on paper and really commit! What do you guys think? Do you want to see me post more frequently or just every now and then? Do you want more blog or more YouTube, I’m curious! Leave me a comment below!

AND Anybody want to work together and help each other reach our goals?! I kind of thought maybe a private Facebook group would maybe be a good idea. I don’t know it’s just a thought. Feel free to email or leave a comment with your email if you’re interested. I may have a separate post about it, if I can get a few other bloggers interested.


I also wanted to give you all an update on the giveaway. I’ve decided to do a two part giveaway. Two separate gift bags and one winner will be picked from my blog and the second will be picked from my YouTube Channel. Since I ended up with a crashed laptop right after I announced my last giveaway (which was for hitting 100 followers on this blog) and I had to cancel it. I am combining my first giveaway with my second giveaway, basically. And I will announce winners after I hit 100 subscribers on my YouTube channel.

So I am still doing the same prize. A makeup bag with some stuff in there picked by me, that I am purchasing and nothing at all is sponsored. I will have a follow up post with all the details and dates, and probably a YouTube video showcasing the two available prize bags. I am so so excited to have my giveaway back up and going!

If you want to get ahead make sure you are following THIS blog and you are Subscribed to my YouTube Channel!

Okay guys! Sorry this was kind of an unorganized ramble of a mess, but at least it was so semi-useful information, lol!

I’m just soo excited to be back, that I just don’t even care! I’m embracing this mess called life. And I’m choosing to be happy, regardless!

Love each and every one of my supporters!!

See you in my next post!





Urban Decay Shadow Box Palette |Other Wishlist Palettes

Hello sweet friends!

So yesterday I was really bummed out. I’ve been in a major funk since my laptop gave up, but yesterday was hard. 

In many ways that I choose not to share, and many other ways that I have already shared(laptop, frozen giveaway, lack of presence on my blog, etc.)

But I just had to do something! I had to cheer myself up! I just HAD to go splurge on something! And for me, “something” usually means MAKEUP! 

So we’re heading out of town(the hubby and I), and I’m scrolling through Ulta Beauty online! Not only to check out their latest deals, but to save my husband a little. He doesn’t care for the store at all. And the less time we’re in there, the happier he stays. Lol it’s cool, i get it. 

So I came across a palette from Urban Decay that I have been wanting for a LONG time. The Shadow Box palette! 11 shimmer/glitter shades and 1 matte black. The matte black shade is what sold me a long time ago! So I have always had this one in the back of my mind, but the fact that I was on the market for glitters sold me instantly! 

Oh and the most fabulous part about it!! It was on sale for $18!!! Originally $34! A brand new Urban Decay Palette with 12 shades for $18, yeah I’m sold!! 

I had three other palettes on the back burner, you know in case they didn’t have the Urban Decay one. One palette was a little more and the other two were a little less. 

The Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette from Too Faced

Golden Bar Palette from Makeup Revolution

Cosmic Metals Eyeshadow Palette by NYX 

So either way i was coming home with something good in those bright orange Ulta Beauty sacks.

When we got there I asked about the Urban Decay Palette and she said she would check and grab me one. 

We split ways and started to the “drug store” section. I knew I could find the NYX palette and the Makeup Revolution palette quickly.. Remember I’m dragging my hubby along, speed is key! Lol

They were both a bust! There were no NYX palettes that even resembled what I was looking for and then Makeup Revolution has there pink bar looking one and some unicorn one, but no golden bar. 

That’s okay though, i had another back up! Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly palette was there and it was glorious! I swatched every shade and I was getting this palette, no doubt! But I had the worker at the checkout with the other palette. So I left this palette behind, grabbed my favorite Mario Badescu Rose Water and headed to the check out. 

When I got there she had it set aside and asked if I wanted to see the sample palette to swatch. Of course I said yes, some how I missed it when we walked in. 

She brought it over and the new palette and opened them both up. 

They were soo beautiful! I legit melted! The websites pictures didn’t even do it justice! And it swatched soo smoothly! Even my hubby liked this one the best! 

So I bought it! Lol I’m so excited it’s kind of pathetic lol. But honestly this is only my second high end palette I’ve ever owned! So it’s a real treat bringing it home! I had it out the whole drive home just looking at it, and swatching different combos! 
I can’t wait to share some looks with you all! 

I hope you all are following my socials! I post there way more often then here for the time being.

And my youtube:
Thank you guys for stopping by, I’ll try my best to keep posting on here! 

And let me know what you think of my new palette. Have you used it before, do you think it’s pretty good??? Let me know! 


Apologies My Friends

I know I have been MIA for over a week, which is very much not like me. 

But if you don’t follow my other socials then you wouldn’t know that my fairly new laptop has crashed.. 

Why? I have no idea.. I’ve looked everything up on Google to try and fix it but apparently it’s the black screen of death. 

Luckily I still have a warrenty so I’m very hopeful it’ll be getting fixed soon. 

So I’m cancelling the giveaway until I can get my blog and YouTube back up and running. 

I’m so so so sorry friends if I disappointed you, but I’m only human and I promise you’re not any more upset than I am.. 

I feel totally lost without my computer. And this blog has saved me the last few months.

But I’m going to use this down time to my advantage and come back with a bang!!

I see you all real soon!! 


100 Follower Giveaway

Hey Everyone!

This is my first giveaway ever so I just really wanted to double check everything and make sure I am doing everything right and nothing illegal LOL!

I want to do like a “Chelsea’s Beauty Bag” or “Chelsea’s Beauty Box”  theme (depending on if I find a box or bag that I like lol). Think like an Ipsy bag or Birchbox, but with my beauty picks! Ah, I’m so excited! I think this is such a fun idea for a giveaway, and I’m going to continue with this theme as my blog grows! So maybe when I hit 500 Followers I’ll do another beauty bag/box giveaway but you know, a little bit better lol!

I’ll be doing my giveaway through, this is my first time using this site so I’m really hope I’m doing everything right. It’s a little confusing, but I’ll manage.

And all the rules and ways to enter will be listed when I update this post next week probably on the 20th or 21st and there will be many ways of entering some mandatory and some not. I’ll also have pictures of the prize up, so you’ll KNOW exactly what your going to win! I might do a YouTube video showcasing each Item. What do you think?? Let me know down below! Or maybe there’s a beauty product you’d like to see me giveaway! Chat with me, I’d love to know!

Well anyways.. I hope you’re all excited for this giveaway, I feel like I have built up a lot of hype for it! I just hope it all works out to plan!

AND I do apologize for having to delay this for another week. But I honestly wasn’t prepared to hit 100 and I’m a mom soo life is always a little crazy especially when I’m not prepared!

Thank you all soo much for sticking around and really engaging with me! I love talking with you all and hearing from you! You guys make me feel so loved and special!

Thank you all so so much!







100+ Followers | Crushing Goals and Taking Suggestions!! | GIVEAWAY!!

Heelloooo sweet sweet Friends!!

Today is Such a Good DAY!!

I have been on nothing but cloud nine since I woke up to this glorious notification! (which I didn’t screen shot until right before this post.. hence 7:07 PM lol)


I honestly can’t believe it. I mean I had high hopes for sure and I’m a pretty big dreamer, but hitting 100 Followers after just a few months of blogging blows my mind!!

I am soo extremely grateful to be apart of such a loving, giving, and kind community of fellow blogger/vloggers. I have really been working my booty off trying to create good content, building connections, and working on my brand!

Some of my Accomplishments since April (when I actually started this blog) have included receiving 100 likes, receiving 200 likes, 50 followers, and now 100 followers. Plus almost 800 hits on my blog! These may seem like small numbers to you, but for me 100 followers feels like 1,000,000! And I love each and every one of you!!

Also in that short amount of time, I have started a Twitter, a YouTube (with 1 video), and started my Vinted shop back up.

And y’all! Literally, my goal was to hit 100 Followers by the END OF THE YEAR!! lol So I guess I better start thinking of some bigger goals!!

Okay okay.. That’s enough patting myself on the back!

Here’s where I need your HELP!!

Please leave me some suggestions or ideas of some blog posts that you would like to see more of or new ones all together! Whether it’s blog posts or YouTube videos, I am open to all suggestions!!

I still have plenty of ideas and content that I am currently working on, but I also want to give you guys what you want to see too! So please help a girl out!! Throw out some ideas down below!

And now for my first Giveaway!!

I have said in previous posts that I would do a giveaway when I reach 100 Followers and I’m here to back that up! lol

I haven’t bought the prize or prizes yet, and I haven’t even figured how I actually want to do this. I’m not sure if I want to keep it on here or maybe on Instagram. I just hit 100 a lot quicker then I thought, so I’m not totally prepared.

BUT, my very next post will have ALL the details. I’ll have it up either tonight or in the morning so stick around. And if you have done a giveaway before, any help would be soo appreciated! Either way I’m sure I’ll figure something out!

SO stay tuned for my very NEXT post!!

Don’t forget to follow my other socials (links are below)! Now I’ve got to get back to the grind!

Thank you all again… Times a billion!!

Like always!!
