Hi y’all! I only do favorite’s posts when I genuinely feel the need to share some good products and/or items. Most of these things aren’t necessarily “new,” but I was very fond of them in April once I came across them. My focus for the month was skincare and self care. April was a good month for me in terms of enjoying almost everything I tried, but I decided picking the best five would be much easier to share with you than the 100 things I enjoyed. These are some products/items that I have made permanent in my makeup routine, skincare routine, in my closet, etc.:
Drunk Elephant The Littles Set
This set has literally changed my life. Have y’all heard me go a week without talking about Drunk Elephant on my Instagram? NO. I was originally obsessed with the Marula Virgin Facial Oil and then I found myself curiously wandering around Sephora one day. I was intrigued by the rest of the DE line, so I sampled the Babyfacial. HOOKED. Then once again, I found myself being pulled towards the other products. I ended up purchasing The Littles Set because it had their top products at a sweet deal. Now I am obsessed with the entire line. Super dangerous for my bank account y’all. I apply the line of products day and night and I honestly haven’t seen my skin look this good in years, like before-I-knew-what-acne-was years. My skin isn’t as oily, has a lot more glow, and also feels amazing. Also, also, also, it’s super convenient for my travels. I can fit 9 skincare products in my overnight back without taking up hardly any room whatsoever! Def the number one thing I was loving in April.
Girl, Wash Your Face By Rachel Hollis
This booked was hyped on Instagram by other bloggers and people who are open with their faith. Totally intrigued, I had to purchase it. I wrote a review on this book in my previous blog post because I couldn’t get enough of it. You can see that review here and find out why I loved it so much. But, it is definitely one thing I was happy to come across this past month.
Shea Woman Bath Bombs
We have a pretty decent sized tub in our new apartment which means, lots of baths. I can’t take a bath without bubbles or bath bombs. This past month I was all about bath bombs. I met a woman in another part of Virginia who sold bath bombs at a kiosk in the local mall. Her personality was vibrant and her bath bombs smelled amazing. Total win meeting Mrs Harris. We made conversation and she educated me on all of the benefits of the bath bombs she made and what they were made of. Her husband and her make them themselves, how cute?! Not only was she an absolute doll, these bath bombs were the best ones I have ever used. I bought a handful of different scents and they all left me so relaxed and rejuvenated after every bath. Justin used one and I swear y’all he smelled so good the entire night and following morning (exactly like the bath bomb he used), so I know these bath bombs are no joke!
I’m all about supporting local businesses (although, this might not be local for most of y’all), but you can try one of Mrs Harris’ bath bombs yourself by checking out her website here. She can ship some to you anywhere!
When I was browsing around Nordstrom I came across the brand Zella. I am way behind, y’all. I don’t know how I haven’t purchased any of the Zella activewear items before (hand to face emoji). They are so comparable to Lululemon but at a fraction of the cost. I love my Lulu but I think this brand has such good quality items that I wouldn’t mind incorporating more pieces into my closet. I wear my Zella long sleeve top all the time because it is so comfortable. My next purchase is definitely going to be some leggings and maybe something for Justin, lol. If you don’t want to splurge on Lululemon but want something similar, try this brand! LOVE.
Fenty Beauty Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby Highlighter
OMG. If you’re on the market for a blinding highlighter, look no further. I am obsessed with Rihanna’s highlighters- especially the Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby duo. One is very glittery and the other is more of a subtle champagne, but I like to combine both of them to give me the perfect glow. The two colors that are absolutely perfect. These shades are suitable for almost any skin tone which is hard to come across with highlighters. I feel like I haven’t even made a dent in the highlighter yet and I’ve been using it everyday since I purchased it.
