I wanted to share some products & things I’ve been loving recently! I don’t know if I will make this a monthly thing, like monthly favorites, or a seasonal thing… we’ll see! But I have a lot that I want to share so I will definitely break it up into a few posts.
So the thing that actually made me want to write this post is my jade roller. Guys. It is worth the hype. My skin has actually been more clear than usual. Not only that, but it feels amazing. I do it every night as the last step of my skincare routine & it relaxes me so much. I was skeptical about how rolling something on my face would be beneficial in any way, but I think it has helped my breakouts, while also tightening my skin & just feeling goooooddd. I also didn’t want to spend a ton of money to get a “real” jade roller, but I got mine off of Amazon for less than $20.
Okay second thing is a teddy bear coat. They are all over this season as a chic & comfy way to stay warm. I got mine from Nordstrom Rack, but they are pretty much everywhere. I get so many compliments when I wear mine & it is seriously sooo cozy.
One thing I wanted to work on this year was mediation. For me, I was always intimidated by the idea of sitting still for even five minutes & thinking about nothing. My brain is always moving 50000 miles per hour, being one step ahead. Taking time to sit & do nothing sounded like anxiety waiting to happen. But one of my coworkers actually told me about this app called Simple Habit, that has guided meditations. I think I mentioned it in one of my “12 Things” posts. It is seriously a great tool to get into meditation. I do it every morning & I feel like I actually accomplished something before even getting out of bed. If you’ve been wanting to try mediation, but are also a little skeptical, I totally recommend this app!
Along the lines of self improvement, I recently read the book “You Are a Badass”. I’ve been wanting to read it for awhile now & it was so worth it! One of those books where I wanted to memorize every line because it held so much truth. I was just like PREACH GIRL the whole time I was reading it.
Another beauty product that I just love is the St. Torpez Bronzing Mousse. There is nothing like a natural tan, which I plan on getting once it warms up, but this tanning mousse works wonders in the cold months! I’m 10x more confident when I have a tan & this product has helped me achieve that summer glow that I’m missing right about now…. It’s a little pricey, but I only apply it once a week & it lasts for a few months so I’d say it’s a good investment 🙂
