⬗ What I am loving ⬖

 Technically it is fall? I would say it is hurricane season; USC canceled class for a week in September and one-day last week, but we have fall break tomorrow, not complaining though. All I know is I cannot wait to dress for fall, I keep trying to wear cute sweaters and end up sweating like crazy, not ideal. Hopefully, the South will figure it out soon... Now onto what this post is really about! I LOVE making these posts. I find a lot of new clothes, makeup, skincare, food, shows, etc and it is so easy to share all my favorite current things in one place at one time. There are not too many recent obsessions, but definitely a few stand out products.



  • ⬗  Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo: This stuff is pure magic. I had always been a loyal Batiste user, I mean how couldn't you with that price tag, but Detox is worth the splurge. It may seem ridiculous to spend $20 on a dry shampoo, but it actually has lasted me a while. It instantly removes my oils and adds a nice bounce to my hair. Bonus: the scent is delicious, sometimes I want to spray it just so my hair will smell good... is that weird? 
  • Adidas UltraBoosts: It was time for me to get new tennis shoes, so I had to jump on the bandwagon. I got mine from Dick's, so I was able to use coupons, which was very nice because these are pricey. They are a very comfortable sneaker, it took a little bit to break them in, but now they are my go-to shoes (other than Birks obviously). I am a big gray tennis shoe girl, but always love a little pop of color. These have almost a rose gold look and a heathered charcoal gray base, so they match pretty much everything! Highly recommend if you are in the market for new tennis shoes. 
  • Apple WatchI have been wanting an apple watch for a longgg time, and I am so glad I finally got one! I am someone who always needs a watch on, and when my Fitbit broke, I needed something that also tracks activity. I am a huge fan of the activity and exercise features. From changing the song in the shower, little vibrations while driving for directions, and being able to talk on the phone hands-free, I did not realize how much it would come in handy. Plus, it is nice to not have to have your phone in your hand at all times. I have the Gold Series 3 but want to find a new band because I am kind of over the pink. 
  • Origins Checks + Balances Face Wash: Game changer. I have been on the hunt for the perfect face wash and I found it! This a super gentle, frothy face wash that leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean, without overdrying it. Sounds too good to be true, I know. Overall, I have noticed a big difference in my skin and products go on very well. I don't think I will ever stop using this face wash!
  • Black Sunglasses: Amazon is the freaking place for sunglasses. I am very rough with my sunglasses, my Raybans cracked after about 6 months of having them. So I am all about paying under $50 for sunglasses, especially under $15. I wear these all the time, every game day, walking to class, and they have held up great! Plus, they are polarized. I mean nice looking sunglasses that are polarized for $12? Yes, please! 
  • ⬗ Rewind Facial Oil: This oil is a more recent purchase. I got it from World Market and it caught my eye right away - the packaging is simple but stunning. It is an avocado and rosehip oil. I haven't been using this for too long, but can already see a reduction in texture and my skin feels more hydrated and smooth! Definitely look into this one if you want to start incorporating oils into your skincare routine. 
  • Califa Farms Almond Milk Creamer: October calls for pumpkin everything. I can never get enough pumpkin, especially pumpkin coffee! I am lactose intolerant, so I always use almond milk creamer in my coffee. This one is so decadent and creamy. I use regular flavored coffee K-Cups (my favorite is Hawaiian coffee), and this takes the coffee to the next level. It is hard to not enjoy your morning while drinking this. The pumpkin spice flavor is so good, but I also am obsessed with the Toffee Tidings flavor. Grab them while you can! 
  • White Lululemon Shorts: These were sort of a ridiculous purchase, I only bought them because my boyfriend and I went to Charleston, and he kept buying things and I decided I needed to buy something (lol ridiculous, I know). However, I have been eyeing these for quite some time, and have worn them almost every day since. White goes with everything and these are such comfortable shorts. Definitely, am not regretting this purchase! 

Thanks so much for reading! I know it has been a while, but I am back in my blogging groove - cannot wait to share more content ⬖
