Glossier Super Pure- I’ve been using this product for a solid month and a half now, and I see a visible difference in my skin. I love glossier as a brand because they market themselves incredibly well. They do a killer job with packaging, concept, and their social media is always consistent. I was pretty skeptical about this product at first but I ordered it on a whim and I’ve noticed that my discoloration has improved and my skin feels bouncier. 

Glossier Cloud Paint in dusk- This was one of my very first glossier purchases-before I became a rep or knew anything about their products. This brand was very honest with their products and presented them in such a personable way, it was easy to trust them. Out of everything I’ve tried, this is by far my favorite product they have. It has the consistency of a foundation which makes the opacity of the product very easy to control. Cloud paint comes in three other shades, but I liked this one in particular because it has a brownish tint, making it versatile enough to sub for bronzer. And the best part is, a little goes a LONG way. Click here to checkout a few of my favorite products and get 20% off your purchase!

Fenty Beauty Contour in mocha- I gave into the hype pretty quickly because I couldn’t get over how good the packaging was. I’m always sucker for a good contour and I love the ease of this one. It has a pretty dry formula, which made it surprisingly easy to blend. This is also one of those less is more products, which is always a good thing. 

Colour Pop Highlighter in lunch money- I was not a fan of highlighter until I tried this one. Simply put, it gives the perfect shine without the glittery mess and it wears well throughout the day. 

Folia Tote Bag- I got really into canvas tote bags a couple months ago when I started working at a coffee shop. Food service makes you smell really bad, so I was looking for something that I wouldn’t be too nervous to lug around, but was still cute. I love the design of this one and the size is perfect. I always keep it in my car for whenever I go grocery shopping and I tend to carry my lunch for work with it. Go check out Folia Collective! They are located on South Lake in Pasadena and it’s owned by the sweetest person! Tell her I sent you! 

Kombucha- If you follow me on instagram or have spent any time with me in the last six months, you’d know that I’ve gotten really into kombucha. Beyond the health benefits, (which I quite honestly am not super well versed in) I love the taste. I am specifically drawn to this this brand because the sugar levels tend to be lower in comparison to others. I try to pick up one or two each week, usually to bring to work on Fridays as a treat yo' self and reward for getting through the week. 

Gold Jewelry- This is more of an all time favorite- these rings. I wear these quite religiously because they all symbolize a specific time and group of people in my life. My hands have gotten pretty used to having them on. 

Chemex- Last Christmas, my parents got me a Chemex and I’ve been using it everyday since. I find that pour overs taste the best and have the easiest clean up. The Chemex is very well designed both aesthetically and functionally, so it's such a great purchase. 

I get a lot of questions about what beans I use..I tend to switch between Peets and Mount Comfort Coffee. For a while I was pretty hooked on Coffee Manufactory because that’s what we used at the coffee shop I worked at. 

RX bars- okay honestly, I was at Trader Joe’s one day and I happened upon these and I couldn’t pass it up because the packaging was so good. I love these. Regrettably so, because they’re quite pricey at almost $2 a bar. Pros: tastes great, on the healthier end of protein bars, nice packaging, convenient. Cons: V sticky, expensive. You win some, you lose some. 

Apple Cider Vinegar- A couple months ago, I bought one of these because I heard about all the health benefits, and it’s supposed to be one of the oldest remedies that actually work. Honestly, it’s pretty gross but I’ve gotten used to it. I drop about a table spoon into a glass and dilute it with water and chug it at the end of the day. I’ve noticed that my skin and digestion have been doing better since this routine started.
