It’s been a really long time since I’ve blogged… which means we have a lot of catching up to do! I’ll have plenty of posts about what I’ve been up to and lessons I’ve learned, but let’s start with the fun stuff – what I’ve been loving lately! I’d much rather spend my money on travel experiences during the summer, so I’ve kept all of the items on my list under $30.
1.) OGX Dry Shampoo ($9) • I use the Biotin & Collagen shampoo and conditioner, so when I saw that a dry shampoo had been released, I knew I had to at least give it a try. I was convinced I had found the best dry shampoo around for only $4, but this is my new favorite. For starters, it smells amazing – and not like chemicals. The bottle also lasts much longer than I’m used to a bottle of dry shampoo lasting. And it blends incredibly well. I’ve even started using this when I just need some extra volume in my hair.
2.) Younger • I’ve been binge watching Younger and I caught up just in time for the season five premier last night. If you’re unfamiliar with the story line, Liza is going through a divorce and trying to re-enter the workforce. When no one will hire her, she lies about her age and lands a job that she loves in publishing. I’m also obsessed with Hilary Duff’s character, Kelsey. (And if you needed another reason to love this show, the fashion is incredible.)
3.) Gold Block Heel Pumps ($30) • If you’re looking for a pair of flirty little heels for summer, look no further. The gold is fun and can be dressed up or down, and the heels are actually comfortable. (I wore these while climbing on things in an alleyway during a blog shoot last weekend and actually felt stable in them.)
4.) Almond Shower Oil ($25) • I get horrible ingrown hairs when I shave, to the point that I was wearing pants every day to avoid having to shave my legs more than once a week. I heard about this product from Carly and tried it out on a whim. Y’all. Not only do I no longer have to deal with ingrown hairs, but my legs are softer than ever and I don’t have to shave as frequently.
5.) Vetiver ($22) • I’ve been challenging myself to try new Young Living products each month. Vetiver was part of my May Essential Rewards order, and it has been an instant favorite. It has an earthy scent, and I love using it while writing or working.
6.) NARS Concealer ($30) • If you follow me on Instagram stories, you know all about my new habit of going to Sephora with no makeup on and asking them to teach me how to do a certain aspect of my makeup. About a month ago, I learned how to do concealer, and it has been a #gamechanger. I don’t like cosmetics with heavy coverage, and this product provides just enough coverage without being cakey.
It also does exceptionally well in the heat. The first time I tried it out was at one of my brother’s track meets. I was outside from 3 PM to 10 PM, and it didn’t melt off of my face like other concealers I’ve owned in the past.
7.) #100SquatChallenge • I’m on day four of a month long challenge of doing 100 squats a day… and loving it! I’m trying to create healthy habits, and these short challenges help me feel accountable and motivate me to work out even more. It has been fun seeing what my body is capable of.
I want to hear from y’all. What are you loving lately? Fill me in!
