I haven’t done this kind of post in a while. I’m due! Let’s get to it shall we?
1. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre Perfume
Have you guys smelled this stuff? I smelled it on vacation when my sister in law let me use some of her perfume when I forgot to apply one evening and I am in LOVE with it. I ran out to get some as soon as I got back. It smells different on different body chemistries. I got 3 compliments on how good I smelled the day I bought it. I’m telling you, it’s good. There are 3 different scents in the Chance line. I got the pink. Awesome. The French lady that helped me at Nordies told me it’s their best selling perfume and that the ingredients aren’t commonly used in perfume right now.
2. Young Living Essential Oils
You didn’t think I was going to leave this off, did you? No, no, me either. I can’t go an hour without using one right now so they’re going on this list! The everyday oils is a great place to start if you haven’t ever tried EO’s before simply because of the HUGE variety of oils that come in the kit. I am seriously diggin Purification and Frankincense these days for headaches and acne. If you haven’t jumped on board yet, I just don’t know what you’re waiting for…they’re that good. PROMISE.
3. The Lemon Droppers
I’ve been writing a few blog posts over at The Lemon Droppers recently. You know how it’s hard to just find friends after you leave college? It’s just kinda tough to find that social network to plug into and be who you are. THIS is that for me.
I was getting so tired of begging Michael to tell me the details of his day just to have an adult to talk to. This group shined a light on who I want to be and what I’m capable of doing. Love that we have a place to talk oils and talk life and I love spreading the stories about what these oils are really capable of. Just so you know, you belong.
Behold the power of Totally Rad Actions on your cell phone. Pic-Tap-Go. I can’t post an instagram without it. I’m not even kidding you. I try and I just can’t post it without running it through this app first. My favorite actions are High Fives, Sweet Tooth, Brightside and Lux.
Here’s a video.
See? Cool. Go buy the app. Totally worth a couple of bucks. Plus, the logo? Adorable. Love it.
5. Lush Bath Products
So, I made the huge mistake of happening upon a Lush store on my girls night out with my friends Liz and Stacy a couple of weeks ago. It’s horrifyingly expensive in there but you get what you pay for (100% believe that in pretty much any facet of life) and you’re gonna get a good product for your hard earned money. Also the people are WAY over-the-top excited and enthusiastic about the way you bathe yourself (think high school drama club enthusiastic), but it’s kinda nice considering the state of customer service at most stores these days.
6. Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Bar (Peanut)
So, my mother-in-law is the woman that is prepared for any situation. When we met in California for vacation last month, she came prepared to feed and take care of an army. In her bag (read: 8 bags) of tricks, she had some of these Nature Valley Sweet & Salty Nut Bars. God love her for bringing these and keeping my kids happy at Disney Land. Love that woman.
Now, I’m not a peanut butter girl and I am SURE not a nuts fan, but I LOVE these things. It tastes similar to a Scotcharoo a little bit but only better for you and no chocolate. I can’t explain it. They’re just awesome. I bought 2 boxes at Costco last week lest they stop carrying them between now and refill day.
7. Starbucks Customizable Cold Cup with Straw
Stop it right now. I love this thing. I got the double-extra-grande-venti sized cup (or 24 ounces for those of you that aren’t down with the ‘bux lingo) for my water and I use it every day. The straw won’t come out the top when my kids pull on it. It doesn’t condensate down the sides because it’s double lined.
oh Starbucks, i love your clean marketing and the fact that you’re on every corner in this city I now live in.
8. Soma Vanishing Edge Panties (…nope, can’t even write that word without feeling gross) Underwear
Soma. Why did I not shop here before this year? WHY? Is it strange that I’m telling you what kind of underwear I wear? Probably, but I don’t even care. They’re amazing.
Yep. Go buy some. They’re like buy 3, get 2 free every day. The bikini style is my fave with the hipsters close behind (no pun intended).
9. Project Life Honey Edition
Shut your mouth, how cute is this kit?
So that’s all I’ve got. Any of you tried any of these things? Anybody have anything that they can’t stop talking about and using lately? Love to hear it.
