My Favourite Issues

This record is completely random. It consists of style, magnificence, residence, and anything that struck me as I used to be placing the publish collectively. As standard, I got here up with a number of extra after Amy made the graphic, so there are extra listed than you see within the image, however it’s an excellent overview of what’s included.


Loads of these shall be acquainted to you regulars. I don’t have a tendency to vary up my routine too typically, particularly once I discover one thing I really like.

L’occitane Almond Cleaning & Soothing Bathe Oil // That is nothing new for those who’ve been hanging round for some time, however I’ve to incorporate it as a result of I really like these things. Thankfully I’m fairly properly stocked as a result of each my son and a pal gifted me with a bunch for Christmas. This massive measurement with the pump is one of the best worth, and I really like having the pump within the bathe. I additionally love the journey measurement for, properly, touring. In reality, QVC has this entire set.

Lancôme Hypnose Drama On the spot Full Quantity Mascara // My go-to mascara since highschool. I lately noticed somebody raving about Givenchy Base Mascara with Lancôme Monsieur Massive Mascara so I ordered each to attempt them, they usually’re good, however I can’t say I like them higher than my Hypnose Drama. I do it in 2 or three mild coats, and it builds and separates and appears just about nearly as good as the opposite combo so I’m sticking with it. That stated, I’ll undoubtedly end up the opposite set. It undoubtedly does a superb job too.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Forehead Wiz // I reside by these things. My eyebrows are so sparse and solely getting worse with age, and this extremely slim retractable pencil creates exact, hair-like strokes that look very pure.

Phrase of warning, although: it runs out all of the sudden and with no warning, so I be sure to all the time have a backup on the prepared. I’m additionally about to start out carrying one in my purse for touchups on the go. I put on the darkish brown.

Colleen Rothschild Magnificence Radiant Cleaning Balm // I do know, one other product I speak about continuous, however these things is superb. I simply observed Neiman Marcus is carrying it now, in order that’s superior information for the model! I’m so glad to see it’s stepping into the mainstream market.

If that is new to you, it goes on wealthy and creamy and smells fantastic. It comes with a muslin material you should use, however I typically simply use my washcloth. I moist it in very heat water and lay it over my face and take a number of deep breaths earlier than I begin wiping it off. It’s like a mini-spa expertise at residence.

Clarins Self Tanning Immediate Gel // That is my favourite at-home tanning lotion, and it’s one other product I’ve been utilizing for years and years. I’ve tried others, and I don’t like anything fairly as a lot.

Learn my publish on How To Apply Self Tanner in case you wrestle with even software.

Coola ECO-LUX Sport Steady Spray SPF50 Guava Mango // That is presently my go-to sunscreen. I found it on trip a number of years again, and I’ve been shopping for it ever since. It smells fantastic and goes on actually sheer, however it works. I appeared it up on the Environmental Working Group’s Pores and skin Deep Cosmetics Database and Information to Sunscreens, and it ranks pretty nicely for an aerosol. It will get a three out of 10. (1 is greatest, 10 is worst.)

I additionally love the Coola Signature Basic Journey Package Assortment for journey as a result of all the things is in TSA-approved carry-on sizes, and the little bag is straightforward to maneuver from my baggage to my seashore bag, and even to my purse if I would like it whereas I’m out sightseeing. Along with a travel-size sunscreen spray, the lip balm with SPF is very nice, it has a travel-sized sunblock lotion with SPF30 particularly for the face, and the after-sun get well lotion is elegant.

Aquis Hair Towel // I purchased this towel a worry years in the past, after studying about it on one other weblog, and now I don’t understand how I ever lived with out it. I even journey with it. It’s supposed to assist reduce hair loss and injury, and I’ve very skinny hair that doesn’t develop in very nicely, so I purchased it in an try to assist with that, however I prefer it for therefore many different causes.

It’s tremendous absorbent, and it wraps right into a turban tremendous simply so I can put my make-up on with out my hair getting in the best way. Now that I’m used to utilizing the hair towel, when it’s within the wash and I’ve to make use of a daily hand towel, it appears so huge and clunky. I lastly determined I order a second hair towel so I all the time have one on the prepared; I’m unsure why I waited so lengthy.

CND Photo voltaic Oil // This cuticle oil saves my nails within the wintertime. If I exploit it faithfully, a few times a day (ideally at night time earlier than mattress so it has a lot of time to soak in), my nails keep robust and wholesome. If I begin skipping too many days, my nails get brittle and begin breaking.

I maintain Shellac polish on my nails just about on a regular basis, so utilizing this oil is vital to with the ability to do this. The salon the place I get my nails carried out swears by it, and now I do too.

I linked to a daily measurement bottle that’s obtainable by means of Amazon Prime, however I truly purchase this dangerous boy. It’s a MUCH higher worth, and it lasts me a really very long time.


Let’s dive proper into the nitty gritty with a few of my favourite go-to undergarments, since they’re the clothes gadgets I are likely to repurchase most.

Hanky Panky Unique Rise Thongs // I do know not everyone seems to be a fan of thongs, however I’ve been sporting these day by day for years. I can’t even keep in mind how lengthy. I’ve by no means had a lot luck with common underwear staying put, and I detest a panty line, so thongs it’s.

These are by far probably the most snug I’ve tried. They’re extra generally discovered within the low rise model, and I’ve a few of these, however I want the unique rise. These underwear do go on sale now and again — typically the ugly colours, lol! However that’s once I snap them up. Proper now, this set of low rise thongs is 25% off.

Once I don’t need to put on a thong — often with shorts and clothes, or saggy lounge pants which may creep… #TMIalert — my favourite briefs are these Natori Bliss cotton woman briefs. They do keep put for probably the most half, they usually really feel good on. I put on the medium, for reference.

SPANX Form My Day Woman Shorts // I put on these beneath all my clothes and skirts. They assist hold all the things smoothed out, they usually don’t roll down. I lastly, after a number of years of sporting the identical pair time and again, ordered a 2nd backup pair. For reference, I put on the medium.

Chantelle Excessive-Influence Multi-Approach Padded Sports activities Bra // That is the one sport bra I put on for top influence actions and operating. It has nice help and a pleasant form to it, and you may hook the again collectively for much more help and in addition to look higher underneath racerback tops.

It runs true to measurement. I are likely to run between a 34F and 34G, relying on my weight and the time of the month, so I’ve one in every of every.

Freya Idol Underwire Balconette Bra // That is my favourite day by day bra for every day put on. The sizing is a bit odd as a result of this bra runs in UK sizing, so take note of that. In any other case it’s just about true to measurement, though it stretches some as you put on it, so typically I’m going right down to a 32 again measurement. FYI, you can even get this bra at Amazon.

Wacoal Purple Carpet Convertible Strapless Bra // That is one other tried and true basis garment that I’ve bought in a number of sizes. For my part, there isn’t any such factor as a cushty strapless bra, however when I’ve to put on one, that is the perfect I’ve discovered.

Okay, that obtained slightly private, didn’t it!?!

I was very discreet when writing about my undergarments and didn’t point out sizes or the kind of underwear I want to put on, however everybody else simply appears to be up-front about such issues, and I determine that’s what a trend weblog is for. We talk about all issues of style, and it doesn’t get extra elementary than undergarments. Let’s face it, it doesn’t matter how cute your outfit is or how nicely it matches, in case your basis clothes are ill-fitting or inappropriate for the clothes on prime, you’ll nonetheless look frump-a-dump.

So far as different forms of clothes, I assume I don’t purchase numerous duplicates or repurchase gadgets fairly often. Types change, and I get bored. However listed here are a number of that come to thoughts.

Nike No-Present Socks // These are what I put on with my style sneakers once I need a buffer between my foot and the shoe however I don’t need my socks to point out.

Sam Edelman Hazel Pumps // I feel I’ve Four pairs of those. I’ve a tough time discovering pumps I can stroll comfortably in, and these are one of the best I’ve discovered of their worth vary.

AG The Legging Ankle Denims // And I assume I might be remiss if I didn’t point out these. I’ve these denims in black (presently 35% off!), gray (at present 20-25% off!), and numerous shades of blue, and I simply ordered a white pair to check out. What can I say? Once they’re good, they’re good!

I’ve worn so many different types of denim, however I’ve by no means purchased duplicates of the identical fashion in another than the Paige Verdugo — which in all probability additionally ought to deserve a point out on this publish, however I haven’t purchased any of these shortly.

Oh, and I assume I’ve additionally bought the 7 For All Mankind Ankle Skinnies with the launched hem in a number of colours as nicely. I hope they convey these again this spring; they’re so good.


I additionally thought of some issues round the home that we will’t stay with out.

Nespresso VertuoLine Melozio Espresso Pods // These are our new favourite espresso pods. When you’ve got a Nespresso VertuoLine, you should attempt the Melozio! Earlier than we discovered these, Stormio was our favourite, and we nonetheless hold a couple of bins of these on-hand as properly.

Wool Dryer Balls // I’m on-again/off-again with utilizing pure family merchandise, which actually is unnecessary for as passionate I’m about consuming clear, natural meals. I do know dryer sheets are filled with dangerous chemical compounds, however I hate static-cling greater than I worry chemical compounds, so I stored utilizing them. I just lately heard about these wool dryer balls, so I made a decision to attempt them, and I’ve to say, they work pretty nicely! I nonetheless have some points with static with sure varieties of materials, however general, I’m prepared to compromise for the well being of our household.

I do miss the scent of the dryer sheets, however I maintain which means to deliver my lavender important oil as much as the laundry room, so I can apply that to the wool balls for a recent scent. I often maintain it within the kitchen as a result of it soothes burns, however I in all probability want it extra within the laundry. Or I might order a backup. ANYWAY! In case you’re making an attempt to rid your house of poisonous chemical compounds, dryer sheets are a few of the worst, and these wool balls are a pleasant various. Plus additionally, it saves cash!

Zarbee’s Elderberry Gummies // I’ve talked about these earlier than, however perhaps solely in my e-mail publication. I’ve been taking these religiously all winter for immune help, and thus far *knock on wooden* I haven’t gotten sick. I’ve the women on them as properly, however they’re not as in line with them as I’m. Paul rolls his eyes at me, however no matter. He’s been sick, and I haven’t. I additionally simply ordered these lozenges to maintain in my purse for journey.

Alright! I higher cease right here for now. I’ve gotta get myself gussied up for a brunch date with a girlfriend in honor of Galentine’s Day!
