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.

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!!

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.
