February Favorites!

February in Ohio has brought some realllllllll weird weather, but it was a quick and pleasant month. Here are some of my favorite products that I enjoyed the whole month of February, enjoy (:

 

lululemon Toasty Tech Tight II

DSC00119LW5J69S_0001_1

I wear these leggings 99% of my life and I’m not even made about it. They are so incredibly warm because they have sweat-wicking tech fleece brushed on the inside of them. I’ve worn them in single-digit weather and could barely feel the cold wind on my legs, it was insane. They are probably the most comfortable pair of leggings I own, they’re stretchy & thick, they have a higher waist band & reflective pockets so they’re great or running at night. If it’s cold where you live & you want to get a good pair of leggings that will keep you warm outside, these are perfect!

 

Skin Food by Aubrey

DSC00120

I discovered these products at my local Whole Foods store a few weeks back & decided I’d give them a try! I got the Detox Face Mask, the Lavender Probiotic Natural Deodorant, and the Immunity Body Butter. She creates Artisan organic skincare and all of her products are made with raw ingredients. Aubrey lives somewhat close to me & her products are sold locally in Ohio at select Whole Foods stores! Supporting local is huge for me & her products are seriously amazing. The detox mask you mix with water & then apply the serum after and the next day your skin will be glowing and radiant looking. The deodorant is fantastic & I can go through a workout and not smell myself (which is a huge feat for me lol). The body butter is probably my favorite item of all because it’s so hydrating and smells AMAZING! I really believe its very important to watch what you put on your body as well as what you ingest. It’s hard with all these products out now a days, but products like these make going to organic products so much easier! Check out her Etsy shop here (: She has everything you possibly think of!

 

Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit

DSC00121

I’m obsessed. Lol. I really don’t have much to say about them except I was so excited to get these and they’re so different for me because I usually wear Free Runs & Air Max shoes. These are super light & they are actually incredibly comfortable, if you’re looking to change up your shoes or you’re bored with your current shoes, check these out!

 

Young Living Essential Oils

DSC00122

I discovered Young Living not long ago & I’m so glad I decided to finally take the leap of faith. These oils are actually amazing & I’m not gonna lie, I was super skeptical about them to begin with. I figured what could an oil actually do for you? But boy was I wrong. I already have a few favorites but I’m thinking about doing a whole post on that here in the near future (let me know if you’d be interested in seeing a post like that!). Since using these, I’ve really reduced the anxiety I deal with, my sleep has gotten dramatically better, my stress has really lessened & so have the effects I have from it, and my energy level have increased. Sounds like a miracle but I really do believe these oils have worked, at least my mind believes they have because I’ve seen really great improvements from using these. I got the Starter Kit with the Dewdrop diffuser & if you don’t know a whole lot about essential oils, definitely do some research on them!

 

Sephora Express Cleansing Wipes

DSC00124

These cleansing wipes are EVERYTHING. I’ve used just about every makeup remover wipe under the sun and these easily take the cake. I used them to take up normal makeup for about a week, but the real test was just the other night when I used them to take off a full face of glam makeup. I use the House of Lashes lash glue & if you’ve used it before you understand how incredibly hard it is to get all of it off. I’ve had lash glue stuck in my lashes before for over a week with this stuff. But I used one of these remover wipes and not only did it take every little bit of makeup off my face with just one wipe, it took off every last bit of the lash glue and a liquid lipstick with one swipe. I was so incredibly surprised & I’ll never use any other brand of makeup remover wipes again. Online it says they cleanse and tone the skin while hydrating thanks to the hyaluronic acid them. Best part? They’re $9… you seriously can’t beat them & if you’re looking for a great makeup remover wipe for travel or anything else – TRY THESE!

 

lululemon Base Runner Pant III

DSC00125LW5LGIS_024541_1

I will never love a pair of sweatpants as much as I love these. Bold statement, but these are seriously the bomb. They are made with Rulu fabric & if you’re familiar with lulu’s fabric, you know when you see Rulu in anything, it’s going to feel like you’re putting heaven on your body. They are also sweat wicking, but honestly I wear these to lounge around the house in (currently have them on as I type this post..lol). They’re similar to jogger pants, they have a hugged sensation on your legs, but they’re baggy at the same time. They have a higher waist band and are tight around the ankles. The pockets are huge and they have a drawstring at the top. They’re just so comfortable, you need to at least try them on in a lulu store to feel them, I promise you’ll fall in love!

 

This post was relatively short, but so was this month! Let me know what some of your favorites for this month were & as always, thanks for reading (:

January Favorites | I’m Back!

Hollllllyyyyyyyyyyy molly, it’s been a while since I’ve made a post on here! Things got super busy after Thanksgiving with school, finals week and the prep for Christmas! I wanted to take some time off to focus on school, family, and not worry about documenting every event for a little bit. Anywho, I hope everyone had an amazing Holiday and got to spend some good quality time with those who mean the most! Now that I’m in the swing of Spring semester and my work load isn’t crazy, I plan on updating my blog as often as I was before because I honestly missed it! So, as my returning post – my favorite kind of post, my monthly favorites! Disclaimer: Christmas was at the end of December and my birthday is at the very beginning of January, so a lot of these favorites were gifts!

My go to everyday makeup: Tatcha Luminous Dewey Skin Mist, Morphe M439 brush, Dior Capture Totale Serum foundation, dr. brant pores no more primer 

DSC00097

These 4 are my staples right now for my oddly dry (not complaining) winter skin. I’m normally very oily so I probably won’t touch the foundation or mist in the summer, but for now I love how they make my skin look.

I’ve always had issues with my pores and I’ve tried everything from Benefits POREfessional, the MUFE pore primer and the smash box primer and none of them really made that big of a difference. I heard about this primer through a YouTuber I follow and she said it was the best she’s ever tried. I would 100% agree. It mattifies, but is formulated to adapt to dry skin – which is perfect for a year round primer, it blurs my pores almost completely and creates a barrier so the makeup won’t clog your pores. It’s also formulated to treat pores, but I haven’t noticed a huge difference in the size – but for anyone who struggles with pores – you need this in your life.

So the Tatcha spray made it’s debut when people found out that Kim Kardashian uses it to get that beautiful glow her skin has & let me tell you – you DEFINITELY glow with this stuff. I spray this on my face over my pores no more primer so I don’t look so flat once my makeup goes on & my face almost looks wet for about 5 minutes, but once it sets you just look very healthy a glowy. This product is pricey for a skin mist, but worth it in my eyes!

The Dior CT foundation is probably the best natural looking foundation I’ve ever tried. This is a sample size that came in a Capture Totale skincare kit I got and I’ve noticed I don’t break out if I wear it for multiple days in a row. I’ve applied this with my beauty blender, but I find the Morphe M439 brush gives it the best look if I spray my brush with a little of MAC Fix+ before I blend it all in. It has anti aging ingredients, SPF 15, optical correctors, and HD liquid crystal pigments that reflect light and make your skin look very healthy, plump and, you guessed it, GLOWY. If you’re dry skinned & have issues with pores – I would recommend this combination!

Sony Alpha a5100 Mirrorless Camera

DSC00099

I got this camera for my birthday based on reviews and recommendations I received and I really do love it. I’m by no means skilled in photography and if I can get a picture that’s focused and not blurry – I’m satisfied. But what I love most about this camera is that it has a screen that flips up so you can take selfies and see what you’re doing with amazing quality, the pictures and video are amazing, and it’s quite light! If you’re in the market for a new camera for a vacation, or just want a new camera to document certain things – I really love this one!

Vanity Girl Broadway Lighted Table Top Vanity Mirror

DSC00101

I was SO surprised when I got this for Christmas because I had looked at them before, but they’re a biiiiiiiiit pricey for a mirror. I’m absolutely in love with it because I not only have my small mirror that I can see close up what I’m doing, but now I can sit back and see it from further away with MUCH better lighting! I also love that it has 2 outlets on the bottom right hand corner so I can now do my hair sitting down, in my room instead of curling my hair standing for 45 minutes in the bathroom. It was the perfect touch to my vanity and I absolutely love it! If you’re thinking about investing in one – I say go for it (:

Fitmark Athletic Tote

DSC00102

So a few months ago I posted about my Nike gym bag I had gotten and was in love with. Yeah.. that was until I discovered Fitmark Bags. This thing hold everything I need and the kitchen sink. It has 8 different pockets on the inside, a water bottle holder, a bag to put your sweaty clothes in, an adjustable strap, the back part snaps away for another extra half to the bag, and a pocket in the front with a clasp to put your keys on. I will never go back to any other bag because for me at least, this has so much more than any bag I’ve seen. The quality of the bag is really good and I’ve had it since around the end of October, I go to the gym 6 or 7 days a week and it’s still holding up and looks brand new. If you find yourself never having enough room for your stuff – look at Fitmark’s website! They also have meal management gym bags, duffle bags, backpacks, and custom bags!

Lululemon Scuba III hoodie

DSC00104

I saw this jacket at Lululemon and fell in love with the color, and it has rose gold hardware….. uhhh hello, perfect. I’ve tried to find it online or in stores and I can’t seem to find it anymore in this color/hardware. I love Lululemon and I think everything I’ve ever bought there has been amazing. Some people can’t see spending that type of money, but I workout a lot, so I can justify spending 100$ on leggings because I want to get a bunch of uses out of them and not have them rip after a few wears (*cough* Victoria’s Secret*…). Now, with that said, I bought the Scuba II hoodie and I absolutely hated it. It was SO thick I felt like a marshmallow and I couldn’t move comfortably in it. I returned it and never bought another hoodie again. Well, I had heard they were re-designing them and so I figured I’d give it a shot & I’m glad I did because they did an amazing job. It’s so incredibly soft, I can move freely, it keeps me warm, and it doesn’t bunch up under my armpits like the Scuba II. I loved this hoodie so much I got 3 other colors :O Needless to say, I think everyone should at least try one on in stores and feel the difference – I promise you’ll fall in love!

Yogi Blueberry Slim Life Green Tea

DSC00110

This tea is lyyyyyyyyfe. Simple as that. I don’t even know if it really works for weight loss, but I am a HUGE blueberry fan. I love anything and everything with blueberries in it, I also have a serious obsession with green tea – so when I saw this at my grocery store I KNEW I had to get it. It’s so delicious and I’m not going to be able to describe the taste online, but it has a subtle sweetness to it from the blueberry, but also the bite from the green tea. It’s perfect and gives me a good energy boost in the morning!

Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour – Zoulou

DSC00112

This was a Christmas present that I was not at all expecting. These bad boys are pricey as hell for a lipstick, but after trying it – I can see why. First of all, the packaging… could it be more beautiful? I didn’t expect anything less when I heard he was coming out with lipsticks, but I also expected the formula to be shit. This is probably the best matte lipstick I’ve ever used. It’s so incredibly hydrating and creamy and does not dry my lips out at all. It lasts for a good amount of time as well which I was surprised about because normally matte lipsticks don’t last on me at all – but I only had to reapply after I had got done eating which was about 3 hours after I put it on. Do I think you need to go run out and buy one right now? No, $90 is insane for a lipstick – but if you can swallow the price tag, I 100% say go for it because the quality is amazing and that packaging is to die for!

5 Drawer Acrylic Organizer

DSC00113

This organizer saved my life. Again, another gift I was not expecting but I’m so glad my mom found it because it saved a TON of room on my vanity. Kim Kardashian (again.. I promise I don’t love her) made this organizer popular in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians & everyone flipped out. I believe hers was around $400 ?! My mom found this on Joyus and it was a fraction of the price. I had at least 5 or 6 different organizers that I was able to condense down into just this one which cleared up enough room for my mirror and I was able to keep my vanity looking somewhat organized. If you’re a makeup junkie hoarder – this is a great item to add to your collection!

Burberry Finsbridge Belted Quilted Jacket

DSC00115

Last but certainly not least, my birthday gift. This was easily one of, if not, my favorite gift. Investing in a good quality jacket I think is something everyone needs to do, especially if you live in the frigid Arctic North that is Ohio like I do! I tried on a grey pea coat type jacket, but the woman helping us at Nordstrom showed me this and I fell in love. It’s long, but hits me right above the knee which I feel the is perfect length. It has a detachable hood, a belt, zipper and buttons, and it is sooo warm. I’m absolutely obsessed with it and is definitely a staple in my wardrobe!

 

Welp, that’s it for my January favorites & I’m very happy to finally be back to blogging! Let me know what some of your favorites were for the month of January, what you did for the holidays, or just say hey (: I hope you enjoyed & as always, thanks for reading!

October Favorites!!

October was a pretty busy month for me school wise because for some reason, every professor I have wanted to have at least 2 projects or papers due every week. Needless to say, November isn’t slowing down either as we are nearing the end of the semester. I’m very ready for the year to be over so I can enjoy the holiday season! Since October was so busy, my favorites are very sparse because I really didn’t get a chance to try or buy anything new. For November, I’m setting a goal to get up at least 6 posts, if not more! So with that being said – here are my monthly favorites (:

Batiste dry shampoo for dark hair – $7 at Target

IMG_0615

So I recently went back to the dark side for fall and my normal amika dry shampoo was leaving a tiny bit of a white cast on my hair when I used it. I’ve heard so many people rave about this product so I figured I would try it out, quickly it became my go to for when my hair is darker. I’m not really fond of the smell and I can’t honestly describe it but the amika one smells 50x better, but this doesn’t leave a white cast and actually has a dark color in it so it doesn’t show up in your hair as obviously. It’s really good at sucking up all the oil out of my hair and I don’t feel like I have gross, coarse sticky hair afterwards. If you have dark hair – this will be your life saver!

Scentsy Whipped Body Souffle in No. 34 – $28 through Scentsy consultant

IMG_0617

Scentsy? Lotion? I know. I was SO skeptical about trying this but I recently hosted a Scentsy party in October and I absolutely fell in LOVE with this soufflé. The consistency is perfect, it isn’t too thick and absorbs SO fast into the skin. I actually was able to put leggings on right after I applied this with no problem – aka, leggings approved. It absorbs fast, but it still hydrates really well and leaves your skin so incredibly soft. Now, the smell… holy crap. Online it says “White satin and pearls. The fairytale is yours for the taking amongst lilting confectionary notes pretty enough for a princess”. I don’t know if that describes anything well enough but I 100% only ordered this because it said it was pretty enough for a princess, so, duh – naturally… 😀 I never smelled this before I bought it so I was hoping it didn’t smell awful, and it definitely delivered! It smells like flowers, but still has a very faintly sweet candy smell – it’s just a perfect mix of floral and sweet. I adore it & if you have the chance check out their body line + their laundry line. I was super impressed with everything I ordered, but this the most!

479 Degrees popcorn in asiago, parmesan + cheddar – $4 at Target

IMG_0618

Holy. Guacamole. New favorite popcorn hands down – even over the 3,000 calorie movie theatre popcorn. This stuff is so good and with only 130 calories, 6g fat, & 16g carbs, this is a very macro friendly snack. Not to mention, 1 serving is 3 cups so you get a pretty good amount of popcorn! I received this as a snack in my Love With Food box and fell in love with it. It doesn’t taste like healthy popcorn which is a huge plus because most popcorn has no flavor and tastes like burnt paper. This is full of flavor and is definitely my favorite to date! They have TONS of other flavors as well so if cheese isn’t your thing, I’m sure they have something to fit your flavor! (Salted caramel is the bees knees too!).

Reebok Crossfit Lifter 2.0 – $120 at reebok.com

IMG_0621

As you can tell by the picture, I’ve given these babies a good bit of use this last month. They are so comfortable and I really feel like a get perfect stability from them with my leg workouts. Deep squats are SO much easier in these and I can really drive through my heels. I haven’t gotten a pair of Reebok shoes I don’t love and these were no exception. I wouldn’t recommend them for cardio though.. definitely not running shoes X). However, totally amazing for lifting and WODs.

Snapea Crisps in Caesar – $2 at Kroger

IMG_0620

I also received these as a snack in my Love With Food box (I’ll do a review on my next box if that would be helpful? Amazing company!). I was so incredibly weary about these because I HAAAATTTEEEE peas and I figured these would taste like baked disgusting grossness. To my very pleasant surprise, these are SO delicious. They also have a peanut taste to them and the caesar flavor is my favorite – they also have lightly salted, peppered, wasabi and a few others! These have 120 calories, 6g fat, 16g of carbs and also 5g of protein! I like to pre portion these out and take them to school with me for when I need something on my stomach, they’re so good and coming from a person who absolutely hates peas – these will not disappoint!

So October’s favorites were very sparse, but I again was so busy and didn’t have a chance to try many new things out – but these were my go to’s for the month! November’s is sure to be exciting! Let me know what your favorites were for the month of October & if there’s anything you’d like to see a post on/ review on this month! As always, thanks for reading! (:

September Favorites!

The month of September flew by, I’m not quite sure if that’s because it was my first full month back in classes or if I was rushing through it to get to this beautiful fall weather I’ve been dying for. September was also a very busy month for me as I was trying to adjust my schedule back to school, trying to fit in time at the gym everyday, running my half marathon & school work on top of that – thankfully I’m done with all the running and I can focus solely on the gym now! Anyway, my favorites from September are some things I used all month or bought during the month that I’ve been loving, so – here’s my favorites (:

Cellucor COR-Performance Whey in Cinnamon Swirl – $40 at cellucor.com (code: KETTLEBELL for 25% off!)

IMG_0600

So I know I raved about the Jim Stopanni protein a few months back, which I still love, but the flavor of this Cellucor protein takes the cake for me. I also love Cellucor protein in general because they don’t spike their protein with cheap aminos, which is always a plus. I really love this protein because I really feel it helps me recover better & feeds my muscle adequately. When I’m searching for protein I always make sure it has at least 20g of protein, under 150 calories, less than 5g of sugar and less than 5g of carbs (just for my macros, this will change for every person) & this protein meets that perfectly. The mixability is great & I’m never left with nasty dry chunks of protein, even if I use a crappy shaker bottle. I’m really excited to try a new protein shake recipe with this I came up with & I’ll be sure to share it with everyone (if it’s good – lol). Overall, Cellucor is one of my favorite brands & I believe in them whole-heartedly because I believe their products are well known for a reason & that’s because they work. If you’re looking for a new protein to try- I highly recommend this flavor!

goats by BlenderBottle – $9 at bodybuilding.com

IMG_0601

I bought this probably 2 or 3 years ago & I never really used it until now. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays I go straight from my class to the gym – so I take everything with me when I go. I only bring one shaker bottle with me, that has my pre-workout mixed in it already, because I don’t want to dirty up 4 different ones. This is perfect for fitting my protein at the bottom in the big container, my aminos in the one above it and if I don’t mix my pre workout up before I leave I can put it in the one above that as well. The top one is for pills which I will sometimes put glutamine pills in there for if I do some serious cardio to replenish what I lost, but let’s be real – I never do cardio. It’s really convenient to have everything in one little stack & I’m really glad I bought this & re-discovered it. I’ve used the blender bottles that have the compartments at the bottom but they either got protein all over my bottle, spilled before I got to use the protein, didn’t fit all my protein, or they cracked and broke so I had to throw it away. This is really good quality & I’ve never had any issues with it. The only thing I would say I would change would be to make the opening bigger because my scooper is usually bigger than the opening of the stack & it’s hard to get my protein in without spilling the powder sometimes! Overall, I love this product & I will be getting more colors of this ASAP!

S’well Bottle in Rose Gold – $42 at swellbottle.com

IMG_0613

I know, $42 for a water bottle? That was my exact thoughts as well & if you don’t want to spend that much on one, I totally understand & I would recommend the hydro flask bottles, but I really love how these bottles look & they have some really cool patterns and designs. First off, S’well became popular when celebrities started carrying them with them places & everyone freaked out and needed to buy one – so naturally, I followed suit to see what the hype was about. S’well makes their bottles with 18/8 stainless steel that keeps cold liquids cold for 24 hours & hot liquids hot for 9 hours. This is partly why I bought it because like I said above, I go straight from school to the gym 3 days out of the week. I fill up my bottle with ice water, throw it in my gym bag & go to school – when I get to the gym my water is still ice-cold! I got the rose gold 17 ounce bottle, which 17 oz is a little small for me but it fits a whole water bottle inside so you also use less plastic & help the environment. I really like these bottles & I plan to get more in the near future!

L’Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream – $44 at sephora.com

IMG_0602

If you’re like the unlucky people, such as myself, who suffer from horribly dry, itchy skin in the winter – you’ll want to stock up on this right now. This is my favorite lotion I’ve ever tried because not only is it hydrating on the skin, but it’s so thick and luxurious on the skin that you’ll feel hydrated for days – literally. I used the one morning after I got out of the shower, went about my day, slept, woke up and played a soccer game, and when I showered after my game I could STILL feel the lotion on my skin, it was insane. I also have mild eczema in the winter time when my skin gets really dry, so I’m interested to see how this will help that as well. I’ve heard so many things about it & how many people love it that now I can totally see why. It is a bit pricey but you get a huge tub of lotion & I’ve used it for about 3 weeks straight now and I’ve barely put a dent in it. It would also make for a great Christmas gift because who doesn’t love the gift of hydrated skin! A lot of thick lotions like this are really greasy too, but I noticed this only feels like this for about an hour, then it sinks into the skin & you just feel very soft after that, which I love because I hate looking & feeling like a grease ball. It’s also 25% shea butter which is amazing for the skin! I would 100% recommend this product!

GlamGlow Poutmud Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment – $39 at sephora.com

IMG_0612

This is actually my mom’s, but I sneak in and use it frequently – which she probably doesn’t know, but she will after she reads this 😀 GlamGlow is known for their face masks, which are nothing short of amazing, so I was skeptical when I saw they were releasing a lip product. First of all, this smells like a big huge peppermint mint – so if you don’t like peppermint or the cooling sensation you get from it – don’t buy this. I absolutely love that feeling & I think this product REALLY works. You first exfoliate your lips with the ‘fizzy mud’ ball – which I never noticed a fizzy sensation, but that’s okay. You then rinse it off with warm water & dry your lips. Then you apply the lip balm ball & it’s supposed to really hydrate your lips & remove the dead skin. So, I’m the kind of person who I must have lip balm on 24/7 because my lips are just so dry. I used this one time and when I woke up in the morning I didn’t have dry lips! The lip balm really sunk in and my lips felt so amazing the whole day. They felt smooth & I noticed I didn’t have any dead skin. So, if you suffer from dry lips or dead skin – I would try this!

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation – $39 at sephora.com

IMG_0610

I’ve heard SO many amazing things about this foundation online & on YouTube, I had to try it. Is it my favorite foundation ever? No. But it’s definitely in my Top 3! The finish of this foundation I would say is satin when you set it with a powder. It looks like your skin if you apply a thin layer & it’s medium coverage. I’m the shade light beige & I would say it’s a pretty good match. I really loved the finish of this & how natural it looked on my skin, it’s also oil free which is a HUGE plus for me because, again, grease ball. This also has coconut water in it which honestly scared me because I’m allergic to coconut – but it didn’t break my skin out at all & kept my face feeling very moisturized all night without looking oily. I only had to touch up one time and that was about after 4 hours with it on, which I think is pretty good! It’s also infused with alpine rose to give you a radiant finish – which I agree with 100% and hyaluronic acid for a smoother appearance to the skin, which I also agree with. I think next to my Giorgio Armani foundation, this may come in a close 2nd place to that – which is impressive because I’m VERY picky with foundations. I’ve heard this works on every skin type & is especially good for dry skin, but I liked it with my oily skin as well!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita – $20 at sephora.com *currently out of stock 😦

IMG_0611

This liquid lipstick blew up probably 6-9 months ago & I don’t think Sephora can keep it in stock. Every time I go it’s out of stock & it’s constantly out of stock online. I can see why though because the color is amazing & could be worn year round in my opinion. It’s a very pretty chestnut rose color, but I’ve heard that some people got a different formula where their’s is more brown than rose – but mine is definitely rose. Kat Von D’s liquid lipsticks in general are absolutely beautiful & the formula is equally as amazing. They’re very pigmented & dry to a matte, without drying out the lips too much. I find they’re very comfortable to wear & the last foreeeeever. They don’t transfer once they set & you won’t have to touch up after eating or drinking. I find these don’t wear off my lips for a good 2-3 hours. Overall, I love this color & I have a few other I love as well. The only thing is with the darker colors, you may have to go over them a second time after they dry because some get patchy when they dry. But if you’re going to get one color – I would recommend this one!

Bath & Body Works 3-wick candle in Sweater Weather – $22.50 at bathandbodyworks.com

IMG_0609

I hate describing scents because you really won’t know if you like it unless you smell it for yourself. I’ve been burning this candle since the day the temperatures dropped below 65. It’s easily my favorite fall candle, along with Marshmallow Fireside & Pumpkin Caramel Latte, and in my opinion, it’s the perfect fall candle. It says it’s aromatic eucalyptus, juniper berry & fresh sage is as crisp as fall air. If you haven’t smelled this yet – I would check out this and the other 2 I mentioned the next B&BW trip you take!

So those are my favorites for September & I would love to hear some of your favorites at the moment! Especially fall things because everyone loves fall! As always, thanks for reading (:

August Favorites!

The month of August kind of flew by, as expected, being the last month of freedom before my classes started back up again. I didn’t try many new things in August because my month consisted mostly of running and relaxing with a little bit of Netflix binging on the side. I mostly stuck by my tried and true’s this month, which will be the reason for having so little favorites. Hopefully September will be full with all kinds of new exciting things for me to share, but for now – here were my favorites for the month of August (:

Erin Condren Life Planner – $50 on http://www.erincondren.com

IMG_0550

Okay so I had a few friends tell me when I got this I would become obsessive about planning my weeks & I’m the kind of person that really just jots assignments for school down and halfway through the semester – I forget I even have a planner. Well.. I think it’s safe to say I’ve become obsessive about planning every little detail of my week out. Apparently, there is like a planner community & there are stickers specifically for Erin Condren planners on Etsy and all kinds of crazy stuff. I loved this one when I saw it online and I also got it personalized with my name at the bottom. There’s so many cute little stickers and I actually enjoy using it and planning with it. I bought probably $30 worth of sticker off Etsy the other day just for planning out my entire fall semester of college with my assignments due, papers, finals, exams, quizzes – even down to BBQ’s and when I need to go shopping for food or clean & do laundry. It’s crazy how much I’ve gotten into it but it keeps me very organized and up to date with everything I have due, appointments and places I need to be. I highly highly recommend these if you have troubles staying organized with everything or you just love planning. I’ve had the Lilly Pulitzer ones, but these blow them out of the water. You can also get add ons at checkout (which are VERY dangerous may I add) of stickers, paper clips, invitations, glitter bands, and all types of things.

Morphe 35O palette – $22 on http://www.morphebrushes.com (currently out of stock – but will be restocked soon!)

IMG_0552

This palette absolutely blew up and when it first came out it was out of stock for forever, but I got a notification when it was restocked and within 2 hours it was out of stock again – but luckily I got my hands on it and I am SO glad that I did because this is the perfect palette for fall. It has beautiful warm colors and you can do anything from a dramatic smoky eye or a casual everyday look with this palette. Plus it’s only $22 for 35 different shadows – which is amazing. They’re very blend able and very pigmented. They’re great quality for the cost. I would highly recommend getting your hands on this the next time it’s in stock because there’s not much else I’ll be using for fall & I know everyone could get tons of use out of these colors!

21oz Hydro Flask in Arctic White – $28 at Field & Stream or http://www.hydroflask.com

IMG_0553

I sort of have a water bottle/shaker bottle problem. We have about 4 cabinets full of water bottles and shaker bottles, but this one I really like for a few reasons. One being that it keeps cold water cold for 24 hours – which I’ve tested by filling it up with water and ice at 8p.m. one night, I let it sit all day and when I came back to it the next night, the ice was still in there – which I thought was incredible. I’ve used it at school as well and left it in my car in the heat and when I came back out to it, the water was still ice cold. It says it also keeps hot things hot for 8 hours, but I haven’t tested that yet. Another thing I like is that it doesn’t condensate on the outside – which for me is a huge plus because I find condensation to be so annoying when it gets all over my seats of my car or desks at school. I also find that even though it’s stainless steel – it doesn’t give water a weird taste because I guess the stainless steel is different (18/8?) so it doesn’t give a weird taste to liquids like a lot of stainless steel cups & bottles do. The only thing I would change is I would get the top with the straw in it because I’m somewhat of a messy drinker I guess & I tend to spill it on myself with the standard mouth – but they do sell the straw tops online, which I will have to purchase ASAP! If you’re looking for a good water bottle that keeps your water cold literally all day, this is a really good one! Plus they offer many different sizes + have containers for food!

Lancome Grandiose Mascara – $32 at Sephora

IMG_0555

So the other day my dad came home with a ton of makeup for my mom and I randomly and this was one of the things he got. I must add, for going into Sephora and not having a clue what anything is, he did a pretty awesome job at picking things out. I’ve only heard of this mascara a few times but never got it because it’s a biiiiiiit pricey, but when I saw it in the bag of makeup he got me I was super excited because I’d heard good things about it. Well it’s quickly made its way to my top 5 favorite mascaras. It’s very comparable to the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill mascara, which is my #2 favorite, but this I think gives a little more length rather than volume. It doesn’t clump or flake on me throughout the day. The packaging alone makes you just want to buy it because it’s so pretty and I’m a sucker for cute packaging. The wand is bent on the inside so it’s much easier to apply rather than the typical straight wand. Overall, I will repurchase this again & I’m still shocked my dad found such a good product haha!

Colorescience Products – I got mine from my esthetician, but you can find them at http://www.colorescience.com

IMG_0557

These products are so amazing and I don’t use them a lot because they’re a tad expensive and they only carry them at my esthetician’s office (they have a website but I hate having to guess my shade). I have the illuminating serum which if you have dry skin – this will be your best friend because it gives you such a pretty dewy glow under your makeup. The face primer I have is skin calming and redness reducing because I have rosacea & sometimes you can see it through certain foundations – this really cancels all my redness out and also fills in my pores very well. I’ve used this product the most because overall it really makes my skin look flawless, which is good to have under your foundation. I have the mineral foundation and the pressed compact foundation, which both have SPF 20 in them and give you such a natural look & they aren’t cakey looking or drying like some powder foundations. Usually I’ll use these for a setting powder or on days where my skin looks like it needs some help before I head out the door. The setting mist is equally as amazing as the face primer because it gives a dewy look as well & for some reason to me it smells like Sprite! Once I put this on, my makeup does not move at all. In my opinion, I think it’s better than MAC Fix+. The best thing about this whole line is that it’s very healthy for your skin and actually helps clear your complexion. They all have vitamins and minerals in them that really help clear your skin and make it look healthy – where as other makeup brands tend to clog your pores and cause breakouts. I have VERY sensitive skin and a lot of products break me out, but I never have any problems with any of these products + they have a HUGE range of products from eyeshadows, to bronzers, to the products I have!

Starbucks Iced Chai Tea Latte w/ Nonfat Milk

577f3675ab690d97e383e52a354b2de4

When I don’t feel like getting green tea from Starbucks, which is my usual I’ll get a Tall Iced Chai Tea Latte with nonfat milk instead & it’s easily my 3rd favorite drink from Starbucks (2nd being Pumpkin Spice Latte 😀 ). There are 120 calories, 2g fat, 22g carbs, 4g protein – only downside ? 21 grams of sugar …… But some days I just crave them and I’ll usually only have them on special occasions or cheat days. They’re SO good, but if you don’t like cinnamon, you won’t like these at all. They’re also really good hot too, but in the summer I like them iced!

So again, I’m sorry for the short amount of favorites, but this month I didn’t really try any new things other than the stuff I have been using for a while now! I hope this (short) list of favorites makes you want to try something & let me know if you do and what you think of it!

As always, thanks for reading (:

June Favorites!

I’m much later than usual with getting this up but I’ve been pretty busy with my training lately and getting some exciting new things lined up – but here it is! These are my favorite posts to do I think because I get to share all my very favorite products for each month with all of you & hopefully get you hooked on a new product as well (: So without further ado, here’s my monthly favorites!

OPA Greek Yogurt Caesar dressing – about 4$ at Kroger

IMG_0497

So I have a sick obsession with caesar salads, when I go out to eat I always get a caesar salad with chicken or a side caesar or whatever. Buuuuuut – the dressing is loaded with fat and if you’re watching your fat intake, most caesar dressings can ruin that right quick, fast & in a hurry. So my wonderful mother, knowing my obsession, found this gem at Kroger one day and brought it home. I eat a salad almost everyday now with this stuff on it and I take it with me in a container when I go out to restaurants so I can use my own dressing that doesn’t have 57g of fat in it. It tastes just like regular caesar too, with just a little less fishy taste, which I prefer. It’s made with greek yogurt too so it still has a bit of a bite to it & at only 5g of fat, 60 calories and 1g of sugar, it’s easily a much healthier alternative to classic caesar dressing! Plus they have ranch, blue cheese & other flavors as well!

MusclePharm Combat Crunch bar in Cinnamon Twist – $2.75 a bar at GNC

gomacro macrobar in sunny uplift (cherries + berries) – about $3 at Whole Foods

IMG_0503

So I was able to try the MP protein bar at the Arnold Classic back in March and I fell in love with it. It’s so delicious and even people I know who hate cinnamon love this bar. It doesn’t leave that nasty after taste in your mouth that some protein bars do & it’s got 20g of protein in it! I’m not a huge fan of these big name protein bars because there’s a lot of added god knows what’s in them but if I’m in a pinch and I don’t have the second bar I’m about to mention – I’ll grab one of these! NOW, the gomacro bar is heaven. These are a lot better for you nutrition wise and they taste phenomenal ! My favorite ones are the sunny uplift and the banana almond one. They’re so good & only have 200 calories, 4g of fat & 39g of carbs. And not to mention – you can read and understand all the ingredients!! These really do keep me full for a while and they taste delicious – even though they look like bird food. Trust me & try one!!

ProJym protein in S’mores – $32.56 at BodyBuilding.com

PreJym preworkout in Cherry Limeade – $35.57 at BodyBuilding.com

IMG_0500

So this ProJym protein has quickly become my favorite protein to date. It was created by Dr. Jim Stoppani and it’s not spiked with added extras or aminos – it’s 100% protein from egg, whey and casein proteins. I got s’mores flavor and it’s delicious, plus it has little marshmallows in it, but it doesn’t really taste like s’mores, I think it’s more of a cold hot chocolate taste, which I’m 100% okay with! I really feel like it helps cut my soreness down and helps me recover & build very efficiently. I’m really excited to continue use & keep y’all updated! The pre workout is equally amazing. I’m not a huge pre workout person, but some days I can’t run without it. I’m tired, feel lazy and just tired – so this stuff really helps. I used it last Sunday on my 3 mile maintenance run and managed to have negative splits, took a whole minute off my pace from my 2nd to 3rd miles and took 2 minutes off my 3 mile run time. So I don’t know if I had a good run day or it was this pre workout, but I’ll definitely keep everyone posted!

Valentino Rockstud Aviator sunglasses – $346 at Nordstrom

IMG_0498

My wonderful boyfriend got me these as a just because gift while we were in Florida & I had to mention them because they’re so cute on and they’re easily my favorite aviators now! The stud on either side of the frames makes them so unique and they have a white trim around the frames that make the blue really stand out. Easy to say, I’m obsessed 😀

Brooks Glycerine 13 Aurora Collection – $160 at Runner’s Plus

IMG_0505

These. Just, no words. Hands down, no shoe compares to Brooks Glycerine shoes. They are literal pillows for your feet. I have the Glycerine 12’s that I got about a year ago and they have taken away the stress on my ankles, shins and feet to where none of those joints or anything hurt. They’re really cushioned and have a great design that makes them not only comfortable but gives them a great heel to toe transition. Easily my favorite running shoe. Now, they just recently took the Glycerine, the Ghost and Adrenaline shoe and released them in a new collection called the Aurora collection that’s based off of the Aurora Borealis & they are ALL gorgeous. But when I saw they had the Glycerine in that collection with these colors I ran to my local runner’s shop and bought them. They’re amazing & I promise once you switch to Brooks, you’ll never look back. Nike shoes KILLED my feet and arches but I’ve never had any problem whatsoever with my arches in these shoes! I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend these!

Lush Ocean Salt – $21.95 at LUSH

Lush D’Fluff – $16.95 at LUSH

IMG_0499

LUSH is well known for their products being all natural with no preservatives or parabens so I really do like buying their products when I can. We stopped at the Tampa International Plaza while in Florida and they had a LUSH store inside. I had heard of both but the girl helping me told me that together they’re a dream – and let me tell you, she was right. Ocean Salt is a scrub that’s made with some vodka infused lime or something and salt (literally smells like a margarita…) so it helps really exfoliate and brighten the skin while stimulating the hair follicles to get a closer shave. D’Fluff is like a soft soap consistency and smells AMAZING. It’s supposed to help with irritation, razor burn and ingrown hair issues. When I use them both together I get such a close shave and my hair doesn’t come back until at least 24 hours later, which is good for me cause I usually step out of the shower and it starts going again -_- But they both I believe are really good products and seem to really cut down on any irritation I’ve had and the ocean salt really does brighten your skin! Try it next time you’re in a LUSH store!

L’Oreal Miss Manga mascara – $6.99 at Target

IMG_0504

In the summer, I’m honestly not a makeup wearer cause I’m oily and anything I put on my face melts off within an hour. So when I’m going to run errands I’ll throw some mascara on and head out the door so I don’t look completely like a bum. This is the best drugstore mascara I’ve tried & thanks to my mom for picking it up for me one day to try cause it’s the bomb. When I first got it I hated it cause it was really wet and I felt like it just kinda weighed my lashes down so I put it up. Well one day a few weeks ago I picked it back up and after it had dried out a little bit it was fantastic! The only downside is it clumps just a little bit with two coats, but most drugstore mascaras clump with the very first application. So if you’re in the market for an affordable mascara – this is a good route to go!!

Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Duo in #2 – $39 at Sephora

IMG_0506IMG_0507

So Make Up For Ever came out not long ago with these pro sculpting duos, releasing two shades. Well in Sephora one day I decided the check them out and I’m gonna be honest, I ONLY bought this for the highlighter shade in this. Complete waste of the bronzer but it’s just so orange on me, so maybe I’ll use it as an eyeshadow or something, BUT, the highlighter is gorgeous! It’s a nice light gold shade & there’s no chunky glitter or anything in it. I usually stay away from gold highlighters cause I’m not the tannest person in the world & I usually stick with pink undertone highlighters, but I couldn’t pass it up. I swatched it in the store and kept staring at it so I caved and bought it. When I got home I researched & found that the highlighter is a dupe for MAC Whisper of Guilt that was a limited edition release a long time ago that everyone lost their mind about. So if you didn’t get your hands on that, go get this duo!

Chanel Les Beiges All-In-One Healthy Glow Fluid (SPF 15) in #30 – $45 at Chanel counters

IMG_0508

This was a splurge, but Chanel makes some of the best products around & this was no exception. This is like a BB cream coverage but it gives you the most gorgeous healthy glow & it still looks completely natural cause your skin still peeks through underneath. It’s great to just throw on and go out the door in. It’s expensive, but Chanel knows their stuff when it comes to makeup. Another use which I’ve found works really well is applying a mattifying primer, then applying this over top to keep you from looking like a grease ball if you’re an oily person like me. Any way you use this I feel it just makes you look so healthy and beautiful, definitely a great product!

Givenchy Matte & Translucent Loose Finishing Powder – $53 at Sephora

IMG_0509

Another splurge, lol, but this is now my all time favorite setting powder! Like I said above, I’m oily & this really keeps that under control. I wore this over my makeup to a BBQ a few weeks back in June & it was hot and muggy out, I was sweating and I thought for sure my face was going to look like someone coated it in clear coat when I got home. But to my surprise, the only part on my face that was shiny looking was my highlight. I looked in the mirror and screamed because I was so shocked. I’ve never had a setting powder do that before & keep me matte even in the heat & sweat. The finish of this is beautiful too because it doesn’t leave your skin with that powdery, gross cakey look most mattifying powders do. The finish is very natural and feels like velvet on your face. This stuff is expensive, but it’s 100% worth it if you’ve tried everything to keep your face matte & just can’t. This gets the oily girl seal of approval!

So I hope these favorites were useful & you want to try something new out that you found interesting! Let me know if you try any of these things out or if you have an alternative to a favorite of mine that you think I may like better! What are some of your favorites? As always, thanks for reading!

May Favorites!

Did the month of May even happen?! I feel like it flew right by and it was here and gone in a week! My monthly favorites for May are going to be all over the place & I didn’t really buy that many new products but I used a lot of the stuff I’ve had from previous purchases. I also cannot believe that we’re almost halfway through 2015 already ?! On the bright side, Summer is in sight and with it being 2 days into June, the weather here in Ohio has been awful – cloudy, rainy and in the mid 50’s -_- So, with all that being said, I hope everyone had a great May & I hope June is even better!

FitBook – 20$ at Target

IMG_0255

My first favorite is my FitBook! I’ve been obsessed with this thing ever since I bought it and I really feel like it helps me keep track of my food & workouts all while staying on track. There’s so many great things about this book like the goal setting pages with the rewards for reaching your goals and also the inspiration page! I always log my workouts as soon as I get home and I feel like when you see a full page of different movements, it’s a feeling of accomplishment. I love this book and I really do feel like it’s made a difference in my fitness goals & motivation. They sell them at Target as well as online & if you feel sometimes your motivation isn’t there, get one of these & I think you’ll see a difference in your workout schedule and also your diet!

Too Faced Sugar Pop palette – 36$ at Sephora

IMG_0256

This palette looks intimidating, I know – but it’s so pretty and I think it’s the best palette for the summer time because there’s so many fun colors and looks you could do with this. I’ve done both a neutral eye look and a fun pop of blue look with this and I can’t get over how pigmented these shadows are and how easy they were to blend. I’d been really wanting to get this palette for the longest time but I couldn’t get over the thought I had in the back of my mind of “You’re going to look like a clown with all those colors on your eye” – but luckily my boyfriend was nice enough to get it for me & I can’t put this thing down now. Too Faced always has great palettes and this one is nothing short of amazing. Life’s too short for boring makeup!

6 Pack Fitness Camille Sport Tote – 100$ on sixpackbags.com (color is currently out of stock 😦 )

IMG_0257IMG_0258IMG_0259

To say I’m obsessed with this bag is an understatement. This bag is perfect for anywhere and the color is adorable. It carries 4 meals, water bottles, pills, books, blankets, tanning lotion, supplements – anything you could possibly need to take with you. I’m so excited to take it to Florida at the end of June so I can use it as a beach bag and also take whatever meals & food I want to take with me. It has a zipper closure at the top of the bag so you can keep all of your stuff from falling out, 7 different pockets on the inside for water bottles, money, pills, powders or anything else and 4 meal compartments in the back that came with 3 ice packs. I like this bag because it’s much more functional than carrying around the original bags they made that look like gigantic lunch boxes on steroids. This one isn’t too big, but definitely has room for everything & again – the color!

Pureology Strength Cure line – Ulta

IMG_0261

So I was running low on my normal shampoo & conditioner and my mom was nice enough to pick this line up for me at Ulta a few weeks ago. Since I’ve been using all 3, my hair has never felt better. This stuff is expensive, even the smaller bottles are about 35$ a pop, but it’s expensive for a reason. I’ve put my hair through so much and it was so dry and damaged and just didn’t look nice, but when I started using this, I noticed my hair wasn’t breaking or falling out as much and my ends looked less dry and damaged. I also stopped brushing my hair out when it’s wet, I stopped using so much heat and I put Argan oil in it every night before I go to bed & I’ve really seen a transformation in my hair. This is easily my favorite shampoo, conditioner and leave in that I’ve ever used & I’ve really noticed a difference in how my hair feels since I’ve been using this.

Shields of Strength Ladies Tiffany Blue Weight Plate in Stainless Steel – 59$

IMG_0262

I haven’t been able to take this necklace off since I bought it. Not only am I clearly obsessed with this blue color that I’ve seemed to buy everything in, but the verse on the back really serves as a great reminder everyday that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” This company has a really great back story and they always go out of their way to show support to people in need & their athletes. I have a whole post on them and their story! Their products are amazing quality and they’re so unique. If you’re interested in purchasing from them, visit this link and when you sign up you’ll get 10% off your purchase!

MyFitnessPal – free in the app store!

IMG_0263

This app in coordination with my FitBook has really helped me stay on track with my eating habits. If I’m out and about and I don’t have my book with me I can enter it in MyFitnessPal and transfer it later. It gives you the calories and macros which are really important ! I haven’t found anything that wasn’t in MyFitnessPal and they added a new feature where you can scan the barcode on any products and it brings up the information so you don’t have to search for it ! All you have to do is enter a few things in the information part and it gives you your macros and daily recommended calorie intake – or you can manually enter your macros if you know what you’re supposed to be eating! This app really helps & also when you log your food, you can cut up to 500-1000 calories in a day!

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone – 38$ at Sephora

IMG_0265

So I know for the longest time everyone was obsessed with Opal, but it really never looked very good on my skin tone and just looked way too gold for my liking. So when I found Moonstone, I was in love. First off, these blend like a dream and look so natural on your skin. They have zero glitter, sparkle, anything and they just give such a pretty glow to your cheek bones. Moonstone is definitely good for anyone that has a fair skin tone or pink undertones because it’s much lighter and less gold than Opal. Becca has come out with so many of these now & they’re all so pretty, but this one is by far my favorite and I can’t seem to stop using it every time I do my makeup! I’d definitely try any of these if you’re in the market for a really pretty, natural highlighter!

Whirlybird Vanilla Berry Granola – 8$ at Fresh Thyme Farmers Market (also seen it at Kroger)

IMG_0268

This granola is SOOOOOO good! It has locally harvested maple syrup, rolled oats, organic agave nectar, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, vanilla and dried blueberries in it and it’s the best granola I’ve had to date. They have a couple different flavors but I’m obsessed with blueberries so I had to try this one first. It’s pretty good for you too with only 150 calories, 6g fat, & 8g sugar per serving! I always pre-measure my food out so if I know I’ll be out and about I’ll take a serving or two with me and it’s a great snack (eating some right now as we speak). It’s also delicious over greek yogurt with strawberries! Not to mention you can actually pronounce and recognize all of the ingredients in it! I’m really anxious to try the other flavors as well, but so far this one’s gonna be hard to beat!

Nike Dri-fit Athletic Cut v-neck – 25$ at Dick’s Sporting Goods

IMG_0267

These are really comfortable and it honestly took me a while to get something different to wear to the gym because I usually just wear shorts and an old soccer t-shirt because I have 500 of them and it was just easy to grab. My gym gets REALLY hot in the summer because it’s an old warehouse and there’s no A/C, only a few windows and a Big Ass Fan (literally, that’s what it’s called). So I figured I’d give these a try because they had great reviews and they looked really breathable. They 100% are both comfortable and breathable. I don’t know what took me so long to jump on this bandwagon but I’m on it & I want every color they have. I’ve had the normal Nike pro t-shirts but those get so hot because they’re basically a compression shirt & that’s just not comfortable – plus they would irritate my armpits cause the sleeves were so high cut. But these are so amazing & I think they’re great for the summer!

Flex Til You’re Famous clothing – flextyfamous.com

IMG_0269

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to talk about them because I’ve been buying from their drops for a long time now. They have a drop one Friday a month where they come out with limited edition t-shirts, tanks, shorts, crops, hats, shoes, etc & their stuff is the bomb. It’s great quality & they have some really great apparel. They only make a limited amount of each item & when they release it in a drop, when it’s gone it’s gone until they bring it back or have a pre-order. They’re having a release this Friday so if you want to get some stuff I would recommend it! Visit this link to get on their mailing list & visit their instagram: @flextyfamous

The Protein Cookie Company – theproteincookiecompany.com (variety pack – 20$)

IMG_2531

I haven’t tried many protein cookies, but these I will not stray from. They are delicious! I was so skeptical in trying these cause honestly anything with “protein” in it usually tastes disgusting – but not these! They honestly taste like normal cookies & they are pretty healthy for you (won’t ruin your diet). I usually ate them after a workout or if I just wanted a cookie randomly throughout the day. They’re HUGE too! They aren’t a tiny little cookie, you get a pretty good sized cookie & they’re all around 250 calories a pop & about 18-20g of protein. I got the variety pack which included chocolate chip, peanut butter chip, oatmeal raisin, trail mix, dark cocoa chocolate chip & dark cocoa peanut butter chip. I loved them all except the trail mix one which had a little too many seeds in it for my liking, but the cookie flavor itself was really good. I also normally HATE oatmeal raisin, but this one was delicious (yes, when I grabbed it I thought it was chocolate chip LOL – trust issues!!!!) These are overall really great & I’ve already ordered my second round of them!

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet – 75$-98$ at Sephora

IMG_0270

I wasn’t going to include this because honestly, you can’t smell it over a computer? But I couldn’t help it cause I’ve worn it almost everyday since April. It’s smells so amazing & it’s got a nice floral scent without making you smell like you just ran through a field of flowers. It’s a very sophisticated scent & I get compliments every single time I wear it. Next time you’re in Sephora or wherever, smell it! I promise you’ll become obsessed !

I told you these favorites were going to be all over the place, lol. Nonetheless, I hope these made you want to try something new in June ! Let me know some of your favorites or if you’ve also tried some of the products I’ve mentioned and how you like them! As always, thanks for reading (:
