Current Favorites

April 25, 2014
I'd like to share my current favorites with you today!

*Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm: This is one of the best lip balms I have ever tried!  With other lip balms, I keep having to put on more throughout the day.  With this product, it is not necessary for me to reapply it as often.  Many other lip balms just coat the top of my lips, but this one absorbs into them.  The formula is very hydrating and it left my lips soft and supple, even in the winter.


*Essie Mini Resort Fling Collection: Mini polishes are the way to go!  I usually just buy my Essie polishes at Target for about $8.50 a bottle which can really add up.  I bought this set of 4 mini polishes for about $11 on Amazon.  When I think about it, why am I buying full sized bottles of polish?  They usually go bad before I can use them all up, so polish is just getting wasted anyway.  In the future, I'll stick to minis so that I can spend less and try more colors.


*Tom's Oahu Vegan Classics: I bought these Tom's last year and only wore them a couple of times...Then it got to be fall and I felt that this pair of Tom's was very much a spring/summer shoe.  I've been wearing these almost every day so far this spring!  I wear them out and about, to work, and while subbing.  They are very comfortable and don't hurt my feet even after I work doubles.  On top of that, I get a lot of compliments on them.



*Bvlgari Au The Vert Perfume: A sample of this came in one of my Glossyboxes last spring.  I wasn't expecting anything great, but this smells amazing to me!  After I used up my sample sized bottle, I couldn't resist buying the full sized version.  I love the frosted green glass bottle that it comes in along with the citrusy scent.  The scent really lingers throughout the day, but at the same time it is fresh.


*Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray: I love this spray because when I use it on damp hair, I just scrunch up my hair a little to get more waves and then don't even brush through my hair.  It's handy for when I'm up early subbing and don't want to spend a lot of time on my hair.  My hair is already naturally wavy, but this adds more waves and I find my hair isn't as frizzy at the end of the day when I use this sea salt spray.  I don't know how well it would work on someone who has naturally straight hair, though.


*Peanut Butter Cheerios:  I have a weakness for peanut butter anything, so it's no surprise that I find this to be a tasty breakfast treat, and it's got to be (maybe just a little) better for me than Reese's Puffs, right?



*Turquoise Stud Earrings from Francesca's: My sister found me two pairs of adorable earrings from Francesca's, so since she had such luck there, I thought I'd go in and take another look to see if I found anything.  Sure enough, these turquoise earrings were calling my name.  I've been wearing them a lot because they don't hurt and they add a nice pop of color when I'm wearing my work attire which tends to be a lot of black/gray.


*Shakira's latest album, Shakira: I've been a fan of this pop singer since 2001 when "Whenever, Wherever" came out, and like her latest album a lot.  I've been listening to it over and over on Spotify.  I like her voice, a lot of the lyrics, and find some of the songs to be catchy.

*Jurlique Advanced Serum: This serum arrived in March's Pop Sugar Must Have Box last month and I love it!  Too bad 1 oz. retails for $68 because my skin has been looking better ever since I started using this.  Someone even commented and said they thought my skin was "flawless," and I've been wearing less makeup than usual, so I'm giving this serum all the credit.  It isn't greasy and is full of antioxidants to "combat fine lines, dullness and dehydration," which is perfect for someone in their early 30's like me.


Are you with me on any of these?

Linking up with Amanda today!

jackie jade said...

oooh I really want to try that sea salt spray. and I love mini polishes too, especially if it's a fun color I probably won't wear very often.

The Rachael Way said...

Um YESSSS to this entire post! Those earrings are adorable, and I love Essie. I need to try that sea salt spray out!!

Lora Ashley said...

Toms are the best! They are quite possibly my favorite shoe! I've had 5 pairs of them 2 of which I've worn so much they have holes in them and yet I still wear them lol

Kiki said...

Toms are the most comfortable shoes!

Nadia M said...

PB Cheerios sound like heaven! Absolute must try. I love essie minis - great for colours I might not use as often. More colours for less $$!

Jenn @ hello, rigby! said...

PB Cheerios are my favorite - one time I bought the chocolate ones and mixed those together... so good!

I'll have to check out the lip balm, sea salt spray when I run out, + the Jurlique serum!

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

I looooove NYM's sea salt spray! Not only does it work but the smell is FANTASTIC!!!

Ashliegh said...

You have discovered something beautiful - I had no idea that Essie made mini bottles! About to order every color now....

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I think you'd approve!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I will have to look for deals on Jurlique items because I'd love to try more products from the brand seeing as how I LOVE the serum and you just raved about the eye cream. What's your HG lip balm??!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I hope that you like it as much as I do!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Yes...that box of PB Cheerios is long gone now and I need to get a replacement!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Toms ballet flats don't fit me properly or else I would have bought a pair--I really like the way they look!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I didn't wear it in my hair today and noticed that my hair was a lot frizzier than usual! I need to use it on humid days!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I really hope you like that BB Cream!! Let me know your thoughts as soon as you try it!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Yes, I have 4 pairs of Classics and they are just so practical. I wear them every time I know I'll be walking a lot because I don't like wearing sneakers with jeans.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Yes! I wear mine very frequently because of that reason!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I wish they had Essie minis available at Target! I'd be in heaven!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

Good call on the chocolate/peanut butter mix. I have a weakness for that flavor!

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

It really does! I actually ran over and sniffed my bottle because of your comment, ha.

Lisa @ Ameliorer la Vie said...

I didn't know that until I recently came across them on Amazon! They have 4 minis of the 2014 Spring Collection for $10.00 plus free shipping!! So tempting...
