Loving Lately

Sooo it's been awhile yet again since I've blogged, but I think that's just how it's going to be: I'll blog when I'm inspired, and apparently I must be inspired this week because I've got 3 posts coming at ya over the next week. I've done this kind of post a few times over the past almost 3 years and since I love reading about the stuff people love, I assume other people do, too. So here are a bunch of things I've been loving lately, besides the fact that I'm getting my first pedicure in over 6 months today, woop woop #footandanklesurgeryproblems Oh and these are not affiliate links or anything, I just really like this stuff.

Tarte confidence creamy powder foundation. You guys already know I love Tarte. I mean, I have their BB primer, palette, mascara (the gifted Amazonian clay smart mascara is my longtime favorite, and I also like the lights, camera, flashes mascara), concealer, bronzer, etc. etc. and I really like them all. I got this foundation when Tarte was having their 30% off sale kind of recently, and I love the stuff. It's definitely my favorite powder foundation I've ever used. I will definitely repurchase this. I also got the Tarte water foundation during the sale, and I like that a lot too, especially because my skin is still drier since it's chilly here.

Benefit boi-ing full coverage concealer. I totally had forgotten about this concealer because I lost it in the bottom of one of my bags like awhile ago, but I recently found it and am so glad I did (I should probably get a new one...). I really like this concealer for under eyes and for dabbing on spots. I still use my Tarte maracuja creaseless concealer and Mary Kay concealer depending on the day, but I think the boi-ing is my favorite usually. Plus it has the best name ever, because it reminds me of one of my favorite movies ever, Troop Beverly Hills (watch this 12 second video to see what I'm talking about, bahaha).

take a deep breath eye

Philosophy take a deep breath eye cream. This is my new favorite eye cream. I have super sensitive skin and eyes and this doesn't burn at all! That's a winner in my book. Has anyone used the take a deep breath moisturizer? I'm tempted to try it because of how much I like this eye cream. 

S'ip by S'well Stainless Steel Water Bottle. I have the dachshund one (duh) but they have lots of cool prints and they're easy to find at Target and it really keeps drinks COLD for a long time. Totally worth the money. I use it all day, everyday. 

Kate Spade New York Small Square Studs

Kate Spade glitter square studs. I wear these all the time. They come in all different colors and though the multicolored glitter are the only pair I own right now, I totally want more. They look so much prettier in real life, and I think they are reasonably priced too, especially when Kate Spade has a 25 % off sale and you can get the gold glitter pair for your sister as a graduation present! I also love my Mrs. pair, they're adorable. 

LulaRoe. I've mentioned this before, but yea, I really like this company. I have 3 pairs of leggings, 3 classic tees, and a maxi skirt. It's all so soft, especially the leggings, and is sold by independent distributors who either sell in Facebook groups or pop-up shops. They only make a limited amount of each pattern, and some are really funky, so that's fun. 

Ivory Ella tees. These tees are cute, super soft and comfy, and the company donates 10% of their net profits to Save the Elephants and other causes. Seriously, get some. They also sell some other stuff, so check it out! 

Well that's all the stuff I can think of right now that I've been loving lately. Oh and moscow mules, but I think I'm like 2+ years late to that train. But seriously, they are so refreshing! What having you been loving lately?

  1. I love my Tarte mascara so much! I'm using Gifted right now and I have Lights Camera Flashes saved to try out later! I got my first S'well bottle a couple of months ago, and I love it so much! It really does keep my water super cold, and I love all the designs! The doxie one is so adorable!

  2. How fun are those earrings?!! I love all of your selections! :)

  3. I love those earrings! I don't wear earrings very often, but those are so pretty!

  4. So this is weird but the way my ears are pierced, those KS earrings sit strangely and make me overthink my earlobes. Such a bummer bc they are so cute! I need to get on the name brand makeup train, clearly... I'm just so cheap and fear that I'll hate it and don't want to waste $$!

  5. I have some glitter studs and Mrs. earrings too and love them! I have been wanting a S'Well bottle because I've heard good things, and I would totally need a fun printed one!

  6. Ahhhh that Sip bottle is so cute!!!! I love the KS earrings but never pulled the trigger. I just picked up a powder foundation for the first time last night and I think I am in love. I got the Stila Perfectly Poreless Putty Powder or whatever it is called. Hopefully I will feel the same way about it in a few days.

  7. That water bottle is so cute. I need one that keeps my water cold for a long time, but I also like to be able to fit ice cubes in the top, so that may be too narrow. Those Ivory Ella shirts are awesome! I want one. And it's a cause I can get behind.

  8. I've decided to blog as I feel inspired too, who needs pressure to do something that's supposed to be fun?!

  9. So not living in the States anymore, I"m way behind on so many things...! But I was recently back home and saw those bottles and am totally kicking myself for not buying one!! The prints are so cute!
