A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS


Yet another set of purchases have gone by and yet another set of favorites have entered my life. Being that we are now in the full swing of spring, I couldn't be happier that summer is just that much closer. There are so many things that I love about the summer: the weather, the beach, just to name a few. I also love the change in beauty looks, the scents in perfumes and candles.

Being that we're heading that way, here are a few things I have been obsessing over lately that I couldn't be happier are guiding me into the new season. READ MORE>


Lip Colors

I don't think I've spoken about it on the blog before, but I know I have posted about this adorable Laboitte Lipstick on my Instagram. This hasn't been just a recent/spring favorite, I've been using it for a couple of months and absolutely love it. The formula is nicely moisturizing on the lips and color is so beautiful, this is the Malbec Burgundy color.

The other two stunning little tubes of pure colorful joy are from Tarte. I knew from the moment I saw Tarte's tweet with just two of them sitting on a white background that I had to have them. At the time, I didn't give a shit about the formulation or anything, I just wanted them because they had stunning packaging. Horrible, I know. That's just what I wanted. Little did I know, the colors I got were gorgeous. One thats a little more springy (Daiquiri) and another that's a little more vampy (Yachting).


Candles

It's no secret to anyone who knows me or reads my blog. I am obsessed with candles. Mostly all year round I end up burning the same scents, but these are two of my favorites specifically when it comes to the springtime. Peony Petals and Gardenia Rose just give such a pleasant feeling to the air when you're burning it. I really like the DW Home candles, they always burn so nicely and last so long!



Essential Oils

Diffusing oils has been such a relaxing experience for me. I started off with a diffuser that I ordered online for about $17-$18 that I absolutely worshipped. I loved it and maybe over used it? I don't know, whatever happened, it broke. I ended up getting another one on Amazon that wasn't that great. I didn't realize until I got it home that it was USB powered and so that instantly made me hate it. This one on the other hand has been great. I read reviews about it on Amazon, which if you ask anyone, is something I hardly ever do. Everyone says it's amazing. So I decided to take the jump and I'm so glad I did. I've been obsessed with burning lavender and orange oil lately.


Face Masks

If you read my last post, you'd know that my skincare routine and maintenance has been going nowhere but up from here. I couldn't be more proud of myself for where I've taken myself in regards to skincare and masks are actually a very important part of that. These are actually two that I have not tried yet, but I have recently tried the Black Ginseng of the same brand and it was fantastic. If these are anything like that, my face will come away extremely moisturized.

I hope you've enjoyed coming along with me to learn about some of my favorite things lately. Let me know what yours are in the comments. What candles, lipsticks, oils and face masks should I try. Thanks for reading as always. Xoxo-Brit.
