Things I’m loving lately & a bareMinerals giveaway!
(Please note: Neither this post nor this giveaway have been sponsored. I purchased all products, including the giveaway prize, on my own.)
I’m in a chatty mood today, so I’m just going to skip over a long intro and get right on down to business.
Here are some of the many things that I am loving lately!
Several months ago, I found a small tub of this body butter on sale at Target for 98 cents. It obviously would have been a crime to pass up such a deal, so I snagged some, brought it home, and…totally forgot about it. Thankfully, I rediscovered it back in December, and I have been absolutely in love with it ever since. It is so incredibly moisturizing and has a nice clean scent. I will definitely repurchase this when I run out.
My wonderful husband knows that I’m really into collecting perfumes (especially ones that come in pretty bottles and smell divine), so he completely went out of his comfort zone during the holidays and picked out this scent for me as a Christmas gift. I was so pleasantly surprised that he bought me some perfume, and I have to say that it has quickly become my very favorite perfume of all-time. I’m not the best at describing scents, but if you’re in the market for a new perfume, I highly suggest that you sample this one at your nearest department store.
These polishes are ridiculously inexpensive compared to most other brands of nail polish, and the color really does last a super long time. I can easily get away with wearing them for 5-7 days before any chipping occurs, especially when I apply a top coat. My only gripe is that, despite coming in 32 colors, I have trouble finding a variety of colors in stores. I’m always on the lookout though!
The Book of Ayurveda: A Holistic Approach to Health & Longevity by Judith Morrison
My oil pulling journey really opened my eyes to the whole world of Ayurveda. I’m completely fascinated and truly believe in so much of what I’ve read in this book. You can definitely expect to see more posts on this topic from me in the near future.
I’m kind of late on the whole “owl trend” thing, but I’m so obsessed with this little owl mug. It makes drinking my morning coffee even better, and I even leave the mug out during the day because it is just too cute to hide away in the cupboard.
bareMinerals Go for the Glow Kit
I almost feel guilty for including this among my favorites because it is no longer available in stores. I purchased it a couple of months ago from Ulta, and even though the colors are probably more appropriate for spring, I’ve been getting lots of use out of it. The kit includes the bareMinerals Exhilarate Blush (a raspberry sorbet color), Clear Radiance All-Over Face Color (a gorgeous highlighter), and Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Smooth Talker (with such a smooth finish!). It truly is a great way to achieve that “natural” glowy healthy look. The reason why I don’t feel 100% guilty for mentioning it is because I also picked up a box to give away to one of you!
All you have to do is follow some or all of the steps below to earn your entries. I’ll announce the winner on Thursday, January 16, 2014.
