Things I'm Loving Lately - volume 1

Since I love doing monthly beauty favorites each month, I thought it would be fun to also cover some random "things" other than make-up that I have been a fan of recently!  Most of these became favorites on my recent vacation and I have new found appreciation for these fun accessories!

Kensie Biggie Caged Dress Sandals - Not only are these freaking SEXY, but they are super comfortable (after you break them in once) and go with EVERYTHING.  They also come in black, but I love the nude and have been pairing them with all my flowy maxi skirts.  I also plan on wearing them with my high waisted denim shorts and a cute top to dress up a casual outfit for girl's night out!

Louis Vuitton Toiletry Pouch 26 - I brought this to store all my make-up on our cruise, and it ended up doubling as an evening clutch for dinner!  I would have never thought to use this as a clutch unless the SA gave me the idea back when I bought it - Genius! I had my LV Eva Clutch packed originally until it dawned on me that I already had one packed.  Can't beat multi-function pieces when you are shelling out some cash.

Blair Ritchey LuLu Tassel Clutch - I have sort of a sick obsession with pouches.  I have about 3 in my handbag at any given time, had them in my diaper bag, use them for storing/traveling with accessories, and most commonly as an evening clutch.  The one I have is in a light nude metallic that I've had for years.  I used it almost every night for dinner.  Not only is it the perfect size for the necessities (lipstick, camera,mirror,tissues,cash/cards), but it fit diapers and my travel wipe container perfectly.  I also used this in my beach bag each day to hold all my personal belongings as well as sunglasses and sunscreen.  The tassel adds the perfect girly touch!

Mossimo Lula Flip Flops - Every year it seems (at least for the last 3 or 4) Target releases some version of these in different colors / jewels.  I have them in gold and rose gold and wear them interchangeably.  As a HUGE fan of Havaianas, it takes a lot for me to wear any other flip flops besides those.  Truth be told I reach for these a heck of a lot more than my Havainas since they are a bit prettier and more dressy.  I have had mine for years and they still look brand new.  Super comfy too! 

Glamglow Thirstymud Mask - This baby SAVED me and my sun burnt face.  I fell asleep one day in the sun without putting any spf on (I didn't plan on being in the sun that long and as bad as it is, I wanted a little bit of color on my face, which seems to never tan). The next day, my face not only hurt, but it began to peel and let me just say...it wasn't pretty.  I was so glad I packed this little jar.  Instead of using it as a 10 minute mask, I actually used it as an incredibly thick and hydrating treatment 2 nights in a row and layered it on top of my moisturizer and slept with it on.  It worked wonders and really saved my whole face from completely peeling off-gross huh?!  This is a MUST for dehydrated / suntanned / peeling / flaky / dry / sensitive skin.  The application feels AMAZING, cooling and thick, but the results are even better!


What are your latest loves?
