10 things I'm loving lately

Shop

This blog post pretty much has no rhyme or reason to it or common thread haha…I just wanted to share with you guys some random things I’m loving right now haha. I always enjoy reading other people’s posts or listening to podcasts about things, products, books, recipes etc they are loving so I thought it might be fun for me to share those things with you guys today!

1. Defending Jacob

Not gonna lie, I feel like we started watching way more TV than usual during quarantine haha. Some shows were a total miss BUT, Defending Jacob is definitely my favorite new show we’ve watched lately! I think it’s on Apple TV. The acting is SO good (I am obsessed with Chris Evans), it’s suspenseful but not too intense…and will leave you on the edge of your seat every episode! It’s based off of a book which I heard is also really good!

2. Then She Was Gone by Lisa Jewell

Speaking of books…this is the first fiction book I’ve read in a hot minute and it was SO good! Super suspenseful and will suck you in from the start! TBH I lose interest in books pretty easily so I need something that will really hook me and this one for sure did the trick! I could hardly put it down!

3. Lace tops for summer

I have been loving this lace top, dressed down with a pair of distressed denim shorts for a feminine, casual summer look! The lace detail is so flirty and feminine but pairing with distressed denim gives this look a really casual / cool vibe which I love! I love this for a date night look or even ‘going out’ because you’re comfortable and still look casual, while still also making a statement with an all lace top!

4. Lip balm with SPF

There is NOTHING worse than getting a sunburn on your lips! I started throwing this lip balm with SPF into my pool bag each time Shiloh and I go to the pool and I LOVE it how it feels on my lips! It is SO moisturizing + hydrating and keeps your lips from getting burned in the sun!

5. Julie’s Real Almond butter

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know how obsessed I am with RX Bar vanilla almond butter! But I recently ran out and decided to try something new…so I picked up this almond butter from Whole Foods and it is SO GOOD. Like, tied as my #1 favorite which is saying something! The cinnamon vanilla flavor is delicious and it’s also made with clean ingredients!

6. Biologique recherche skincare

I might do an entire blog post about my updated skincare routine here pretty soon…but in mid April I switched up my skincare routine to a line I used consistently when I was pregnant with Shiloh, called Biologique Recherche! I stopped using it for a while because it’s slightly more difficult to get than product you can simply buy at Sephora or Nordstrom. During quarantine though I was like “what the heck. while i’m stuck at home, why not totally change up my skincare routine and see what my skin does.” and it has been an absolute GAME CHANGER. I absolutely loved the products I was using before, but BR has taken my skin to the next level in the best way possible. (If you’re interested in trying out the line, contact my friend Rebecca and she can help you decide what your skin needs, what to order, etc!).

7. Skinnydip almonds in lemon bliss

I just recently tried out this flavor of skinnydip almonds and it was LOVE AT FIRST BITE. Kinda salty and sweet and tangy all at once but still made with clean ingredients and a great way to get some healthy fats in! Warning: you may or may not eat the entire bag in one sitting haha. SO GOOD! Love this as a mid afternoon snack while I’m working at my desk!

8. The Ordinary exfoliating face mask

I shared this mask on my stories yesterday but it is possibly the best $7 you will EVER spend on your face. I honestly didn’t have high expectations for this face mask considering the crazy low price tag…but you guys, I AM SO IMPRESSED. I’ve only used it one time and have already noticed visibly smoother, more even skin! My skin felt like a baby’s butt when I took this mask off. I know it sells out very often so definitely buy it now while it’s still in stock!

9. Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc Wine

This wine is a long time favorite of mine but I have REALLY been loving it now in the summertime! I’m not usually the biggest sauv blanc fan but this one is a 10 on a 10 in my opinion and the perfect patio weather / summer wine! So good with a yummy cheeseboard too!

10. Layered necklaces

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I wear my “Shiloh” necklace every single day. I don’t typically like to take necklaces on and off because it just seems like a pain and hard to keep up with haha. BUT…recently I have been loving layered chain necklaces (like these) for summer! I love how they instantly elevate your outfit and make a statement! Some of my favorites right now are from Baublebar, Kendra Scott, and Gorjana!
