Favorite Products 2017

Sharing 7 of my favorite products from 2017, everything from head to toe.

Hello, friends! Hope everyone had a fun weekend. We spent a lot of time around the house cleaning and getting laundry done. Not very exciting but needed to get done. This weekend really flew by, can’t believe I have to head back into the office already tomorrow. For today’s post I wanted to share some of my favorite products from 2017.  These are 7 of my go-to products that I could not live without! You can click on the name of the product and it will take you directly to the link to purchase it.

Too Faced

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

This bronzer is heaven and it smells like chocolate milk which makes it even better! I started using this bronzer a few months ago after I ran out of my current bronzer from Smashbox and wanted to try something new. I am in love with it! I’m decently pale so I opted for the lighted shade but there are two shades darker than this one if you need a darker tint. It looks fantastic, smells fantastic and only costs $30. What more could a girl ask for? The link above takes to the Too Faced website, however this product is also available at Sephora and Ulta.

Mascara

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara 

I have tried a million different mascaras to see if there is one better than this one and let me tell you, there is not!! This mascara is my all time favorite makeup product. My whole family is obsessed with it. If you want long, full looking lashes than this is the mascara you have been looking for. Before getting my eyelash extensions I wore this mascara every single day, it made me feel so much better about my short lashes. When I am going out with my hubby or friends for the night I will put this mascara on my extensions to make them look even longer and more full. Too Faced sells it on the their website for $23, I have also found it in store at Sephora and Ulta. I promise you will love this product!

Arbonne

Arbonne Liquid Sunshine Tinted Self-Tanner

Every girl can use a good self-tanner lotion and this one is always my go to. I stopped using tanning beds a few years ago because I really wanted to keep my skin looking young. Spray tans are great for special occasions but they fade fairly quickly and you would have to keep going back almost weekly to keep up with your tan. Again, I am pretty pale, I look almost ghostly during these Ohio winters, so I wanted to find the best self-tanner. I had tried a few that I found at Ulta but nothing that I loved, that’s when a friend recommended Arbonne. As soon as I tried the lotion I was hooked. The tan lasts anywhere from 4-7 days and the color is great. Once you put it on it takes about 2 hours for the color to start showing on your skin. The tanner costs $45 on the Arbonne website linked above.

BB

Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cover-Up

I seriously love this cover up! It is not very thick but it covers up minor flaws and last all day long. I wear this makeup daily. The only time I wear a different cover up is when I am going out for the night and want more coverage. If you need a product that is perfect for the every day look, than I would try this. I am honestly obsessed with it and the best part is I found it at Target for less than $10! The product comes in 5 different tints and helps reduce blemishes, its an all around win!

Brush

Wet Brush

The wet brush is the best hairbrush ever!!! I used to struggle all the time with brushing my hair, especially after getting out of the shower. Long hair is no joke, the amount of tangles I would fight to brush through was ridiculous. Once I started using the wet brush I never had to worry about tangles again. This brush is so smooth and makes brushing out messy hair so much simpler. This is the only hair brush I use. I will use it on wet and dry hair. I can not explain how great this hair brush is, I even use it on Beckham when I get him out of the bath. This product is a must try! I found mine at Target for less than $10, I’m sure most drug stores sell this brush also.

wans

Bed Head Curlipops 1” Tourmaline Ceramic Styling Iron

You guys, this curling wand only costs $29.99 and works like a charm! This is the only product I use to curl my hair, I absolutely love the way it makes my hair look! The wand heats up very quickly and it stays hot the whole time you are using it, unlike other wands and curling irons I have used. Honestly, you won’t need much time when curling because the product is so hot it can curl a piece of hair in just a few seconds. I was really worried about trying a product that was so low cost compared to some of the other wands similar to it but I am so happy I decided to try this one out. I saved my self a ton of money and I get the same if not better results every time I use it. I purchased mine from Ulta, however I think I saw them on sale at Target too.

pedi

Amope Pedi Perfect

So, this product was a birthday gift from my grandma last year and I love it! I feel like my feet are never as pretty as I want them to be. I love getting pedicures but I can’t always make it to the salon when my feet are starting to look a little rough. This product is perfect for keeping your feet looking pretty between pedicures. I never have to worry about wearing sandals again. It works great and is super easy to handle. My feet always feel so smooth after using the pedi perfect.

I love all these products and was so excited share how they have helped my every day beauty routine become easier. If you have some really great products that you love please let me know about them in the comments below! I am always looking to try new beauty products. Hope everyone has a great week, xoxo.

Happy HUMP day – half way to Friday!! I don’t know about you guys, but this week has been a rough one for me so I can not wait for the weekend to get here!!! Anyway, this past weekend Shane and I took Beckham to our local orchard to get into the fall spirit! Fall in Ohio is fantastic, there are so many fun things to do and see. We had such a blast watching Beckham experience everything the local orchard had to offer. Seriously, having kids makes everything 10x better!! We were able to feed the cutest little farm animals, picked some pumpkins and mums for our front porch and took Beckham on his first hayride. Of course, I also enjoyed the food. Have you guys ever tried a warm apple dumpling with vanilla ice cream? If not, you are seriously missing out! Probably one of my favorite desserts ever. It honestly couldn’t have been more of a perfect day. I hope you all had a great weekend too, thanks for stopping by to read the post 🙂

Honestly though, I can not believe it is already Sunday, the weekend is really flying by! We are having such a great weekend, I just don’t want it to end. The weather in Ohio has finally decided to start feeling like fall, woohoo!! Today we are going to one of our favorite orchards to pick up some pumpkins and mums for the front porch. This is my favorite time of year and now that we have Beckham it is even better. I can’t wait to see how much fun he has running around the orchard today! He makes everything in life so much more exciting! I hope you all enjoy your Sunday as well and as always thanks for stopping by.

Top 10 Fall Favorites 2017

My top 10 fall favorites, everything from hats to shoes.

Fall Essentials

Collage Details

Women’s Quilted Jacket – I am obsessed with quilted jackets for fall. I own a navy blue one that I bought a few years ago and I wear it all the time. The one I linked is super adorable and it is at Target for only $39.99!! The maroon color is one of my favorites for the fall season however it does comes in a few different colors.

Gabriela Stud Tassel Earrings – Tassel earrings are extremely popular this fall. The ones linked here are from Baublebar and come in 13 lovely colors! I can’t wait to get my hands on a pair of these beauties.

Button-Front Denim Mini Skirt – Seriously in love with this skirt!! I bought it this past weekend at Forever21 and can not wait to wear it this fall! It is super flattering and the button up front is adorable!

Black Distressed Jean Leggings – These black distressed jeans from Express are the perfect fall essential. They can be worn with pretty much anything and as always the black color is very slimming.

Peep Toe Bootie – Peep toe booties are one of my favorite fall trends right now. They compliment so many different outfit types. This pair is from Nordstrom and I am obsessed!! I will be ordering these very soon.

Over the Knee Boot – I feel like black over the knee boots are an essential fall and winter staple to have in your closet. I own a leather pair that I wear way too much, I can’t wait to order this suede pair from DSW!

Contemporary Bell Sleeve Top – Bell and ruffle sleeves are HUGE right now! Everyone is wearing them and they are sooo cute! I bought this purple bell sleeve top from Forever21 this past weekend and it is so flattering and fun to wear.

Floppy Hat – I am obsessed with floppy hats! They make any outfit 10 times cuter. The one I tagged here is from Old Navy, I bought a similar one from there last year around this time that was a nude color and I wore it all the time. I’m sure I’ll end up buying a few more floppy hats to go along with my current collection.

Nude Buttercream Lip Gloss – I love a good nude lip gloss. The one I tagged here is from the bareMinerals line at Ulta. BareMinerals’ lip gloss line is amazing, they have the best colors and the gloss is always so shiny!

Plaid Poncho – Poncho’s are one of my favorite trends because it feels like you are always wearing a blanket and who doesn’t want to wear a blanket in the cold weather, especially Ohio! I love the black and white plaid on this one from Nordstrom.

Thanks for stopping by to check out the blog. Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!
