Recent Favorite Things 2021

Hi friends! I wanted to put together a list of all my recent favorites & products I’ve been loving so far in 2021! These are the products I’ve been loving & reaching for over and over again for skincare, makeup, fashion & random items that are absolutely necessary to me.

SKINCARE

Tula The Cult Classic Purifying Cleanser – I’ve quickly realized the reason “cult classic” is in the title. I love this gel cleanser because it leaves my face feeling so clean & glowy, this is one you can genuinely feel good about using because it’s 100% free from phthalates, parabens, toxins, carcinogens, mineral oil, sodium laurel sulfate, and harmful preservatives. YAY!

Hydro Boost Water Gel – I’m OBSESSED with this moisturizer because it has Hyaluronic Acid in it which attracts water from the air into your skin. It REALLY moisturizes your skin. It’s lightweight but it makes your skin feel nice & supple, plump & hydrated.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask – I know you’ve heard of the lip mask, but this one is for your skin! It’s the consistency of moisturizer & does absorb into your skin so you don’t have to worry about it getting onto your pillow. When you wake up in the morning you face is SO SOFT! Don’t believe me? It has 163.9k loves from other customers on Sephora’s website alone.

HAIR CARE

Olaplex Hair Treatment – this treatment has 2 parts No. 0 & No. 3, which can be used by itself if you want to just try out one. I color my hair & use this treatment once a week & it has helped my hair so much, even my boyfriend noticed how soft & shiny my hair was after using this! It helps keep my hair strong.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo – I’ve loved this dry shampoo for awhile, but I don’t normally get the jumbo size & I love it because it lasts so much longer not quite double the product but only $10 more which overall saves me money! The technology behind this dry shampoo is so cool! It will actually bind to the oil in your hair & after a few minutes I rub my roots & the white powder along with the oil LITERALLY brushes out of my hair to leave fresh clean hair. The product doesn’t build up & feel gross in your hair either!

MAKEUP

Maybelline Lifter Gloss – I always grab this gloss in the ice color – I keep one in my bag & one with all my makeup when I get ready for the day & it’s so nice! It has hyaluronic acid & naturally plumps up your lips – nothing too dramatic & it doesn’t hurt like a plumper. It smoothes out the cracks/lines in your lips & it’s not sticky AT ALL.

Everyday Essentials Brush Set – I cannot believe I’ve been missing out on these brushes. I haven’t ever been able to justify $50 for 1 brush & I’ve always used inexpensive brushes from morphe BUT THEY SHED like crazy! This led me to these amazing brushes from Real Techniques – I’ve loved their beauty sponges for years so I’m not sure why I didn’t think to test out their brushes. Now that I have, I’m never going back. They are SUCH great quality – so soft & no shedding whatsoever. They blend like a dream too! I also went back and grabbed the Eye Essentials kit – which comes with a lash separator to use after mascara to prevent clumping and I LOVE. I also grabbed this really big bronzer brush & it’s probably my favorite out of all of them. They’re BOGO 1/2 off right now too!!!

Shape Tape – Again I’ve always loved this product, but last year I was searching for more drugstore options & ran out of this and forgot to grab more so I continued to use the drugstore “dupes”. HOWEVER, I just recently started back using Shape Tape & let me just say I haven’t found another product that does what this does for my under eyes. Perfect example of if it’s not broken don’t fix it, lol! ALSO : I found shape tape on sale basically 2 for the price of 1 + a free sponge on QVC. Use the code : OFFER if it’s your first time ordering from them or HELLO if it’s you second time. That will bring the price down to $27.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Eyeshadow Palette – This palette is so beautiful & it’s perfect for everyday. It has a ton of neutrals & mattes with a few shimmery shades thrown in there for when you need a little extra for date night or a night on the town.

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette – I LOVE this palette – the story is great the quality is great it really can’t get better. I love how inexpensive these palettes are ESPECIALLY how many shades you get it’s crazy to me. The colors in the palette are so awesome for spring & summer coming up & if you’re into bright colors this is the palette for you.

OTHER

Adidas Promotion Adapt Shoes – These shoes are so convenient & easy to quickly put on + they’re super cute. I’ve been using them on my training days in the gym or just for going on a walk/running errands. I love the elastic bands on the shoe they really hold it tight to your foot which I like & they have the cloud foam technology which feels like you’re walking on a cloud.

Fawn Design Backpack Mini – This is such a great bag & has so many pockets to help keep you organized. I know it’s meant to be a diaper bag, but the mini is the perfect size as a purse. I am really impressed with the quality – it’s really soft & nice leather thats super thick and well made. I love that it can be wiped down completely too.

Amazon Cotton Thong Panties – Listen – I was a Victoria’s Secret ride or die for awhile & then all my underwear started falling apart & bleeding onto my other clothes. I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of undies that are comfy because that’s my main concern & then I found this pack on amazon it’s 6 pairs for 10 bucks! Are you kidding? Why was I spending $30 for 5-7 pairs of undies?! Anyway I’m not the only one who loves these they have over 26,000 rating & are the #1 bestseller in thongs on Amazon.

Velvet Self Tanning Mitt – WOW! Has this made the biggest difference in my self tanning or what?! Why on earth I kept buying cheap little ones from Ulta I do not know. This baby will last FOREVER. It helps you blend out the moose SO MUCH EASIER & it takes way less effort to get a streak free tan. Since using it I really have stayed streak free. It’s super easy to clean afterwards as well.

Quip Electric Toothbrush – I cannot find the color that I have, but if you go in-store maybe you can find it! I have a pink & rose gold toothbrush. I really love the bristles on this tooth brush because they genuinely clean my teeth so well & it has a built in timer. It comes with a travel case & a holder to stick it onto your mirror if you want to. The replacement heads are $5 for a new brush head + it comes with a new battery as well, they have an auto ship options for every 3 months & the first month is free.

What’s in my gym bag?

The gym is my sanity. If I didn’t go to the gym I would probably be a total crazy person. Fitting the gym in some days can be a challenge so I have to have my gym bag stocked and ready to go at all times. I’ve compiled a list of my necessities to keep in my bag so if I want to stop at the gym on the way home from work I can.

1 // adidas Weekender Duffel Bag

I love this bag because first its super cute. Second, its very functional. I love how big it is so I can keep my spin shoes, hair stuff, supplements etc. There’s room for it all!

2 // PreWorkout from WM Nutrition

There are so many things about this PreWorkout that I love. It doesn’t make you jittery & can be taken in pixie stick form. I absolutely hate downing a bunch of water before a workout because it makes me feel sick. I’ve tried plenty of other pre workouts that also make you feel like your skin is crawling & this one does not do that at all. 2 things to note about this PreWorkout. 1 – it will melt & turn into goo if you leave it in your car. 2 – I prefer the regular PreWorkout the All-Natural is EXTREMELY SOUR.

3 // BCAA’s from Scivation

If you don’t know what BCAA’s are, they’re amino acids that help your muscles to recover quicker. It also has electrolytes to help replenish after getting your sweat on. These are by far my favorite that I’ve found so far (brand & flavor).

4 // Burt’s Bees Chapstick

This is the one thing in my bag that I cannot live without. If I don’t have moisturized lips I can’t function or focus on my workout because I become consumed with how dry my lips are. I have always been a believer in Burt’s Bees the texture is tacky which I love & it lasts thru a whole training session.

5 // Make-Up Wipes

I have this exact box which includes full sizes for at home & little travel sizes that are perfect for the gym! The last thing I enjoy doing is working out in a full face of make-up. You can also use them to freshen up post workout if you need to run to the grocery store or know you’re going to be delayed in washing the proof of your hard work off.

6 // Headphones

Pretty much a given in any gym bag is headphones. I like my beats, but they are actually an older model so this is the current version that’s out. I’ve had them for year & they have an amazing sound quality. I will say that I love to steal my moms AirPods whenever I get the change though.

7 // Wet Brush

Still obsessed with the Wet Brush. I have to talk myself out of buying a new one every time I see them in Target. They don’t hurt your head & work like a dream.

8 // Batiste Travel Size Dry Shampoo

Always have to have dry shampoo on hand to keep your hair lasting!

9 // Hair Ties

This one is pretty obvious if you have long hair.

10 // Cycling Shoes

I love these spin shoes I got from Pearl iZUMi. If you’re from Utah and you can make it into their outlet store they always have deals going on.

11 // Nike No-Show Socks

After one bad incident of forgetting socks at a post work gym session, I make sure I have an extra pair of these no-show socks.

12 // Redken Travel Size Hairspray

My favorite hairspray again is a given because nothing bothers my more than pieces of hair in my face as I struggle for oxygen.

H20 intake

Something I’ve changed up recently is my water intake! I’ve always been THE WORST when it comes to drinking water throughout the day. The only time I can remember drinking enough was at cheer camp because we were forced and it was HOT working in the sun all day.

The recommended amount depends on your weight, take your weight divided by 2 and that’s how many ounces you need to be drinking in a day. I account for my workouts and increase my water intake during vigorous workouts.

I know a lot of people say you’re “supposed” to drink a gallon a day regardless, but a lot of your water actually comes from your food. I promise your body will get used to it and you won’t be running to the bathroom every 5 seconds after a week.

The results I’ve seen just from one small simple change has made a huge impact on my energy, my skin, and strangely enough I feel like I definitely look leaner than I did before. Maybe not carrying as much water weight? Whatever the reason I’m not complaining one bit. I remember the first week I started this change I had text one of my gym friends that I felt like I could run a marathon after an 8 hour work day. I never thought I would be the person who could wake up at 5 AM and get to the gym before work but now I can sometimes make it. Lol. Better than never right?

Xx, Kennah

June Monthly Update

Okay we’re a little bit late on this one, but better late than never AMIRIGHT?? I think I am. June has been crazy and I cannot believe it’s almost the 4th of July! I’ve been waiting for fireworks & BBQs for SO LONG! I’ve been using my youtube app a lot lately watching make-up tutorials, one I am loving is Desi Perkins. She is a glow & brow queen, everything she makes really is so awesome. Definitely check her out. Also her make-up room is to DIE for, if there was one thing in life I could have THIS WOULD BE IT!!

 

Songs :

Products :

  1. I’ve NEVER been a fan of blush before, until I found this color from Tarte. I always end up looking too flushed and red. This blush is different, it’s subtle and the perfect color for my pale pale complexion.
  2. My new favorite lipgloss in the color creme brûlée & its $3.69 at Target.
  3. I’m SO excited to share this Protein Water. YES!! Protein water. I absolutely hate protein shakes, but these… these are AMAZING. 60 calories. 0 sugar. 15g protein. Depending on the flavor the protein is 10-15 grams. I got the variety pack with 15g.
  4. I ordered this jumpsuit for my trip to Seattle. Since I’ve been home I’ve worn it multiple times & I try to wear it every chance I get. It’s seriously comfy and can be dressed up or down.
  5. I’ve been looking for a pair of platform sandals for a minute and found these black Steven Madden ones. Also considering these ones with a white sole.
  6. Brought home this pair of Nike’s from the 5 floors of bliss Nordstrom store in Washington.
  7. HAIR ACCESSORIES… Anyone else been loving this trend?? Found this cute Bandana pony scarf. Maybe I’ll make a full post with all the fun things I’ve found recently, we’ll see.
  8. Nothing says summer like an eyelet blouse.
  9. Summer also means a lot of weddings to attend. I love this pocketed fringe dress.
  10. This Tommy Tee is so cute, it could even work for the 4th of July that isn’t so 4th of July.
  11. Gingham and tie front, this shirt is a winner.
  12. Might need one more swimsuit to get thru the summer, this striped lace-up front one piece will do.

Websites :

Love all the cute clothes on vicicollection.com. They always have a 20% discount going on & you can find the code on their Instagram but really they already have great prices!

Going through a home decor obsessed phase so I’ve been spending a fair amount of time on crateandbarrel.com.

Reading :

I read 2 books by Shari Lapena and both were SO GOOD. I’ve been into mystery thrillers lately and I couldn’t put either one of these down. I read A Stranger in The House and The Couple Next Door.

Kennah

Why I switched to an All Natural Deodorant

Did you know after being diagnosed with breast cancer one of the first things they tell you is to stop using regular deodorant? Although the research connecting the two is inconclusive they are still asked to stop using deodorants with aluminum because of the way it can react with radiation. Many people also believe after shaving if you cut yourself it’s easier for your body to absorb toxic ingredients in your deodorants.

After finding this out switching to an all-natural deodorant was a no brainer because I was already leaning that way anyways. Not only do you feel better knowing exactly what’s in it, it seems to work a lot better for me. I’ve tried every kind and brand of deodorant including clinical strength options. Below are a few natural deodorants I’ve used/had recommended to me.

  1. Schmidt’s Naturals – I’ve been using the cedar + juniper, but I think next time I will order the rose + vanilla or the ylang-ylang + calendula. If you have sensitive skin they also have a fragrance-free version!
  2. Kopari Beauty Coconut Deodorant – I’ve heard amazing things about this aluminum-free deodorant and it has an auto-ship option which is great for me because I always forget until I’m completely out. I’m going to try the ship every 2 months option and see how I like it. Also love that its coconut, for some reason I’ve found coconut seems to work best for me at lasting all day, is that a real thing? or in my head? Lol.
  3. Lavanila Deodorant – Aluminum-free and Kourtney Kardashian approved.
  4. Malin+Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant – Recently tested out a few other products from them & I’m betting this one is just as good.
  5. Native Deodorant – 4.69 out of 5 stars with 6,332 reviews. I’d say this one is definitely worth me testing. Also comes in yummy flavors. (Coconut & Vanilla, Rose & Lavender, and Gardenia & Orchid).

It seems quite silly that I’m so excited about deodorant, but seriously I can’t wait to try all of them and see how they compare. I already have 8 sticks in my bathroom drawer. I’ll keep you updated on which ones I’m loving.

Monthly Update !!

When I first started this series of monthly updates, I didn’t know it would end up being one of my favorite things to write. I love being able to share and talk about all the things I’ve been using from apps to websites and products and music. It also gives me an excuse to try tons of new things. Last month I recommended the Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversation and I’ve still been listening to it this month. I listen in the mornings and it really helps me start my day with a positive attitude and a humble heart. Cannot recommend it enough. Plus its Oprah, who doesn’t love her??

Apps :
  • Kourt App from Kourtney Kardashian. (You probably hate the Kardashians but their beauty and health knowledge is unmatched).
  • My Water App. (It reminds you to drink water throughout the day, you input your information and it tells you how much water you should be drinking but I actually upped mine to be 80 oz a day).
On my playlist :

Earned It – Bootstaps (A nostalgic version of the 50 Shades of Grey hit).

Delicate – Taylor Swift (Not sure how it’s taken me this long to find this song but the album is soo good).

Electric Love – BORNS

Whole Lot in Love – Austin Burke

Also been listening to a whoooleeee lot of JT since his concert.

Say Something – JT

Supplies – JT

Summer Love – JT

Things I’m Loving :
  1. My new favorite exfoliating face wash. It helps me control my oil and makes my skin super soft!!
  2. This facial spray with aloe, herb and rosewater is a great mid-day refresher. I also use it in my hair on day 2 and 3 when it needs a little extra love. I bought it s month ago and it’s already half gone.
  3. I caved and bought Anastasia Beverly Hills new Amrezy Highlighter. I swatched it on my hand in the store and fell in love instantly. It actually looks wet and dewy.
  4. I have been looking for the perfect white ruffle sleeve top and I think I have found it.
  5. Loving cropped skinny jeans right now & I’m stocking up for summer. These Vervet Destroyed skinny jeans are in my cart and ready for checkout. These Distressed Hem skinny jeans are out of stock in my size, but I’ll be back for them.
  6. Just bought this mini black denim skirt. I paired mine with a cream sweater and a gold belt and got so many compliments. Would also look adorable with this button up.
  7. I’ve been doing a ton of health and wellness research because I’ve been sick a lot this winter. I found these wellness shots at target and found them online as well. They’re blue green algae wellness shots, blue green algae is a superfood packed with proteins, vitamins and nutrients.
  8. White PEACHY Tee. Only $23 and it looks so soft and comfy, I need it.
  9. Newport front tie top that I’m on the email list for because its out of stock in my size, but I am 100% buying this for Seattle.
  10. Been needing a new pair of athletic shoes and I found these alpha bounce adidas also love these adidas Originals Deerupt Sneakers.
  11. I’ve been redoing my closet (which i will make a separate post about) but one thing I bought is this red Levi’s Tee.
  12. I posted about this lip mask last month because I had just got it but my updates is… it’s amazing. As good as everyone’s been saying. After having it on I can’t stop rubbing my lips together because of how soft they are.
Favorite Shops to Spend time on :

World Market – I love to go into this store as well they have the best furniture and I got the best smelling body scrub from Huntington Soap Co.

LA Hearts Swimwear – I spend a ridiculous amount of time looking for swimsuits for summer body inspiration.

Thrillest – Has the best travel guides, I have been using it to look up yummy places for my upcoming trip with my sister to Seattle.

ASOS – Again been redoing my closet and some of it has been from this shop! They have EVERYTHING.

Setting Goals

One of my favorite things to do is set new goals. Write them down, track them as you progress, and finally CHECK THEM OFF! Here’s a few things I’ve learned along the way of my goal setting.

  1. Write it down and keep it somewhere you can see it on a regular basis to remind yourself what you are working for. I also like to write why this is my goal. For example right now I am doing a sugar cleanse. I wrote my goal of how long I’m going without sugar, specifics on what I can/can’t eat, and finally my reason being that it makes me feel yucky, tired, sluggish & it makes workouts harder.
  2. Be realistic with yourself. Instead of setting a goal to lose 20 lbs, break it down and lose 5 lbs at a time. You may find that you don’t actually need to lose 20 lbs just 15.
  3. SET A TIME FRAME! If you just say I want to save money for a puppy or whatever it is, the likelihood of it happening at least for me is slim. I have to say I will save $1,000 for a puppy by such and such date, I will save $100 a paycheck to get there.
  4. Don’t set too many. YES, I did just say that. If you set too many you lose focus and its better to zone in on a few and check those off and then set new ones. If you’re trying to do it all, everything gets half done and you’ll never get anywhere.
  5. Set long term & short term goals. I.e long term you want to help people, your short term goal would be to volunteer 2 hours a week for 8 weeks.
  6. Don’t be afraid to tell other people no. Something I struggle with is when I’m trying to resist something and someone says I’m dumb or I don’t need to lose this or do that and tries to offer it to me, I start to reason with myself. Just say no, don’t negotiate and justify. You’re doing this for you, not for them. Automatically know your answer is going to be no and pull out your reasons why.

Now go set some goals!!

Meal Prep : Energy Bites

For those of you who follow along on my Instagram for my blog @ninexxnine you probably already saw this recipe, but here is a solid copy that doesn’t disappear in 24 hours! I make these on Sunday for my week and eat them whenever I’m needing a little burst of energy. I love them before the gym or after work. The best thing about these little bites is that if you have a sweet tooth this will help satisfy that and it’s not bad for you!

You’ll need:

1 C. Old Fashion Oats

2/3 C. (Natural) Peanut Butter

1/3 C. Flaxseed Meal

2-3 TBS Honey

1/3 Chocolate Chips

Optional:

2 TBS Chia Seeds

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. *Note: if you decide to add the Chia seeds add a little extra honey so that everything still sticks together good when you’re making them into balls. Allow them to chill in the fridge for an hour. Scoop them into bite size pieces using a cookie scoop and store them in a tupperware container until you’re ready for them!

So easy and yummy! I made them for my boyfriend and now he asks me all the time to make more for him!
