Favorite things lately

img_7871I enjoy and appreciate when a blogger posts about certain things they are loving at the moment, so I thought I would share what I’m loving lately with you guys! (My inner thought: “if I find it useful and interesting, maybe my friends will too?!”) What I’m really loving this second? A late night snack of carrots and hummus. But I digress….

NYX Micro Brow Pencil and NYX Control Freak Clear Brow Gel (find it here and here)


This stuff is legit! I used to buy the expensive Anastasia brand of both the pencil and clear brow gel, and this NYX brand gives the same exact results and application as the stuff that’s more than double its price! The pencil glides on easily (no tugging on your skin) and the brow gel isn’t too thick or heavy and you can’t even tell it’s on. I love that it sets my brow hairs in place and I don’t have to worry about the “tails” of my brows getting smushed out of place or going a little crazy looking throughout the day.

TRESemme Keratin Smooth hair serum (find it here)


I have very fine and thin hair, but I have a lot of it. Whenever I blow dry it it gets all tangled and is a hot mess. When I put this in my damp hair and finger comb it through, I can literally blow dry my hair without a brush and run my fingers through it without getting caught halfway down. It makes my hair pretty much frizz free and suuuuuuper smooth. It’s not too heavy or oily feeling like some serums can, and this is important for us fine haired gals! I can’t believe I’m just starting to use something like this. Oh, and it’s cheap! AND it doesn’t make my hair greasy or oily. Total win!

Adjustable Rose Gold Feather Bling Bracelet (find it here)


I love this feminine little rose gold bracelet I just got the other day from Charming Charlie. I have always loved feathers (they remind me of Native American jewelry which I love), and this one is just a more glitzy and trendy version. I also have been loving the adjustable part which is something you normally see on bracelets that are made of string (think of friendship bracelets!). I like the movement of the loose ends and the little bit of bling there doesn’t hurt either. This bracelet was $8! Super cute and looks great layered with other bracelets/a watch/other metals (silver/gold).

Alright, that’s all from me for now. Hope you enjoyed what I’m loving lately! A little dose of girly never hurt anyone.

Do you have favorite beauty/fashion buys you’re loving lately? Do tell!!!

love & cupcakes,
