Things I’m Loving Lately

TGIF! I figured I’d do a quick and fun post about what I’m loving lately. I’ve recently discovered all of these things within the past month or so and now have been using them on a daily basis. Let’s start with some beauty products:

Lush Cosmetics

Lush Shampoo
How did I not try this sooner? I had heard about Lush but only thought they made those bath bomb things. I got the Braziliant shampoo (pictured above) from them last week (for shine and moisturizing) and absolutely love it. My hair has been super dry recently and this has been helping. A shampoo bar supposedly gets about 80-100 washes, which is equivalent to 4-5 shampoo bottles, according to Lush. My mom has also tried their all-natural face masks and liked them a lot as well. 

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

I usually don’t wear foundation, but I wanted one that wasn’t super expensive, and that looked natural, especially for nights out/special occasions. This one definitely fits the bill. It matches perfectly with my skin tone, and it’s only 8 bucks! Before this I had bought one from MAC for $30, and it just didn’t match my skin tone. Why pay more than double the cost when I can get a good drugstore foundation? I also love the Revlon foundations!

Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Mascara

Obsessed with this right now. I have lashes that go straight down, so I always have to curl them. This is an issue also because I can never wear fake lashes. The fake ones who up and curl nicely, and then you can see my own lashes jutting out. This was the perfect solution. I had heard a lot about the Younique Mascara, and then found this in Sephora. You put on the black coat first, then the white one (which is this cotton-y material), and then the black coat on again. It really elongates your lashes, and no joke it does almost look like fake lashes. Try it!

Okay now let’s look at health/fitness related items:

Don Lee Farms Veggie Patties from Costco

These are so delicious. I’ve been trying to eat more meatless lately, and have been eating these for lunch some days. I usually have it with salad…which I’ll get to in my next item…

Costco Sweet Kale Vegetable Salad Kit from Costco

I couldn’t find an image that’s current and looks like the bag I buy but you can read about it through the link above. This is more of a crunchy salad, which I like. And it includes kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts, green cabbage, chicory, pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. I pair this with the veggie burgers above and it is a filling and delicious salad. I usually add some honey mustard dressing on it. I eat this with lunch and dinner most days!

Tiux Compression Socks

The people at Tiux sent me a pair to try out and they’re awesome. You can pre-order one of the three socks above now and receive them this spring. I think these are a little thicker than other compression socks, which I like. I need thicker socks to run. Stay tuned for a review on these socks next week!

I like reading things people are loving at the moment, so I thought I’d write up my own post. Let me know if you have a question about any of these!

What are you loving at the moment?

What’s one makeup item you can’t live without? (Mine’s definitely eyeliner)
