November Favorites: Things I’m Loving Lately

Hi friends! I’m sharing my November Favorites because December is finally upon us and I can’t believe how fast it crept up this year! I love it though and I’m soaking up everything Christmas related. This is the first year my family has not had a real tree…we’ve always done the real deal and it was a great tradition but now that my brother and I are older, my parents decided to go for a fake tree. We started decorating our tree last night and I’m loving that cozy full-heart feeling 🙂

Today I’m sharing a few things that I’ve been using lately, from makeup to accessories! Leave me a comment below if you use anything here or if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear from you!

novemberfavoritesI came across this body wash a couple months ago and I’ve loved using it so far! I prefer body wash over a bar of soap (germs, hello) and this body wash smells amazing and it’s really gentle on the skin! Amazon has both a small and large size of this which is nice depending on if you want stock up. You can shop this body wash here. There is also a Rose Petal and Original on Amazon that I have yet to try!

These Alex and Ani bracelets were really popular when I was in college and since then I’ve received a few as gifts. They’re the cutest charm bracelets and they are a lot to choose from online! My mom got me the ladybug one for good luck and I smile every time I look at it! Click here or on the photo to shop the photo and these Alex and Ani bracelets!

Maybe you saw me talk about this hat on my Instagram, but seriously it’s my new favorite thing! It’s so comfy and I LOVE the color! I’m definitely a hat person and I have a similar one in black, but I like the shape and feel of this one much better. I think this hat could be pretty versatile for all seasons so pick it up while it’s still on major sale! Click the photo or link to this hat here and it will take you to Liketoknowit. From there, click the hat photo and you’re on the product page and ready to purchase!

Of all people, my brother discovered Juice Beauty haha. In all honesty, I think he went into Ulta for something for men’s skincare and walked out with the entire Juice Beauty line (whoever sold him that, you’re a great salesman lol) BUT the good thing is I actually really love the line too. I had never heard of Juice before that but one of my favorite things from them is this Stem Cellular Exfoliating Peel Spray. You shake the bottle, spray some of your face, then start rubbing it in. The coolest thing happens and some of the dead skin from your face gets exfoliated off which you can feel. It leaves my skin super refreshed and smooth! Click the photo or here to shop it!

 

Last but certainly not least, my favorite of all favorite lip glosses. By now, you know I’ve joined the Butter Gloss train and I’m not looking back. For $5 at target, you can’t beat this. The color is amazing and my lips feel super hydrated! Stocking stuffer idea maybe? I’ll be getting my mom a few of these! Click the photo to shop it!

Okay that’s it for my November favorites! Can’t wait to share things from this month because I already have some ideas I’m storing! haha. Have a great week!

September Favorites: 4 Things I’m Loving Lately

As September is coming to an end (how did this happen? I was just planning summer trips!) I wanted to share a few things I’m loving lately. I thought this would be a fun peek into random things I love and use all the time. Also, I’m just warning you now, this is probably the last “things I’m loving lately” post you’ll get that doesn’t include anything fall or holiday related because I am just a little obsessed with all seasonal things from October on haha. Let me know if you’ve tried anything below and what else you’d like to see next month!

First up, NYX Butter Gloss. Now let me just say that I have never been a lip gloss person. I hate how it makes your lips sticky and I’ve always preferred chapstick over lipgloss. Erin from Cotton Stem shared about these guys (they’re under $9, so affordable!) and so I gave it a try. Let’s just say I’m addicted haha. I have it in several colors and love how it makes my lips feel so hydrated. The colors seem to mold to your own lip color in a way, so it’s really versatile for everyone. This color was super pretty and subtle!

Next, my ALL TIME FAVORITE pen the 7-year pen from Seltzer Goods. Y’all know that I am an avid list maker, I journal and do my morning pages almost every day, and I always need a good pen with all the writing I do. I like to switch from my laptop to a good-old-fashioned notebook every once in a while when I’m working on my screenplays too. Basically, I’m one of those people who loves a good pen so I knew this one was amazing the second I tried it! I got my first 7-year pen as part of a gift after I graduated college and have been in love with them ever since. Basically, go get one right now. You’ll never need another pen for 7 years. Also, something really cool is these pens are eco-friendly. I’m so glad this company is eco-conscious and works towards a world with less waste!

Next, I’m a huge fan of skincare! I can’t go to sleep without taking my makeup off and I love a good face cream. I also loveee face masks and had the opportunity to try the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask at BeautyCon and it’s my new favorite mask! I’m a big fan of sheet masks but this one is so hydrating and glides on like gel.

Last but certainly not least something I’ve been loving is this Ginger Beer! I’m a big fan of Moscow Mules and I recently made my own using this Ginger Beer and it was really good! (strong, but good). Let me know if you want the recipe I used and give this a shot!

Get this Ginger Beer for your next Moscow Mule!
