Super Love- Whethan, feat. Oh Wonder

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS SONG!! Its such a summer BOP! This song fell into my lap last summer, and it has stayed up on my list since then!! Its so happy and fun but the lyrics are still meaty and important, which is ALWAYS a must for me!! Okay give this a listen and enjoy!!!

Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers

Okay just so you know I can GET DOWN on some conspiracy theories, aliens, the Mandela effect, ghost, whateverrr.

A good versatile Band Tee!

Okay so band tees have been around for since like before we were all born and all that. They seem stale right?! NO! for the times you cannot find ANYTHING TO WEAR! THROW ONE ON, AND CALL IT A PROGRAM! I love when you can throw something on and always count on it! Band tees are a busy/lazy girls (pick your excuse) go too! You need one in your closet for those times when you cannot figure out what to wear!! Get one that pairs well with jeans, shorts, leggings, skirts so it can be your go too!

HERES MY CURRENT FAV!

Volition Beauty Celery Green Cream

Guys… I DID NOT expect to LOVE this stuff as much as I do. I agreed to work with them on a sponsored IG post because this stuff sounded AMAZING!! To be transparent they agreed to send it to me in exchange for a sponsored post I typically DO NOT DO POST FOR FREE because social media is my main source of income. But I COULD NOT get this stuff off my mind, so I agreed, and GUYS I am in LURVE with this stuff!! It smells/ feels SO GOOD!! It feels like my skin is drinking a cold glass of water when I apply it, it reminds me of Clinique Moisture Surge but better!! RUN don’t walk to grab some of this!! Also Volition as a company is SO COOL! They make products based off of customer suggestions!! ISNT THAT SO COOL!! YOU CAN JUST BE LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK THEY WORLD NEEDS, A MOISTURIZER MADE WITH CELERY JUICE, AND THEY WILL MAKE IT!!!! hahahah

Quote of the Week!

2A7560C2-AB48-48F6-945D-1AC2A57C35D1

“I urge you to please notice when you are happy” -Kurt Vonnegut

You know I wanted a quote about pushing forward no matter what, but when I was doing my usually Pinterest scowl to try to find something, I came across this! It stopped me dead in my tracks, and made me think; I’m always making it a point to talk about when things are bad or hard, but rarely do I EVER say “I’m super happy lately, things are great!” How sad is it, that we often gloss over the times when things are going well. Why are we always waiting for the other shoe to fall, why are we so apped to over look the times when things are good? This needs to change, I challenge you to take inventory of your life often and acknowledge the good, bask in it, shout it from the roof tops. Things don’t have to be perfect to be happy either. Find your shiny moments take them in and hold on tight to them.

OKAY

I hope you got something from this, I hope you enjoy these recs and know that I write this and do this with all the love in my heart! I LOVE YOU!!

BYE!

Euphoria

This is the first series I’ve highlighted, its the new HBO show, and I am OBSESSED! The characters are so deep, there is so many levels to them which is something I LOVE about HBO shows! This show deals with heavy relevant topics like drugs, alcohol, sexuality. It shows you all shades in a realist show that you will become addicted too!

Watch the trailer

“Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection”

-Brene Brown

Brene Brown is my girllll!! If you haven’t watched her viral ted talk or her Netflix special you NEED too!! Her lives work is about being vulnerable, and living whole heartily as yourself! I chose this quotes because last week I really opened up about my BIGGEST insecurity (on my IG) It was scary, and hard but I cannot tell you the love and connection that I felt afterwards. It also brought me back to my why. So I say as a reminder or incase you didn’t know, there is so much power in vulnerability, and it feels so good to live your life that way.

ANY WAYS!! HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT JULY 4TH IF YOU ARE CELEBRATING!!! I LOVE YOU!

  • Song or Album
  • Movie, Series, Documentary, or Podcast
  • Item of Clothing or Accessory
  • Beauty Product
  • Quote of Week

 

Vance Joy

He is seriously the BEST!! I am OBSSED with every album he’s ever put out! “Dream your life away” is my FAVORITE album of his but I also LOVE “Nation of Two” !! His stuff is dreamy, super chill, and puts my soul at ease!! I love to listen to him when I’m relaxing, or getting ready for the day! It puts me in a good mindset, his music evokes clarity for me.

Beautiful Boy

This movie is so important, it perfectly and chronologically tells the story of addiction. It is BEAUTIFUL from start to finish. You will probably cry, and find yourself sucked into this true life story. Beautiful Boy is the most beautiful story about heart, tenacity, and a fathers love, through the devastating experience of addition. It gets ugly, and real, but its a mesmerizing master piece! You can watch is on Amazon Prime!

Mi.iM Shoes

EDB0A8AA-2BE2-4955-B467-9E9F6508707F

Okay so I just got these shoes for a sponsored IG post I’m doing but I am OBSESSED with them!!! They are kinda funky, but they add so much to everything you wear them with and they are still so neutral! I love  good statement shoe, and these go with so much more then I though they would!!

It Cosmetics Foundation!!

This is the holy grail of foundations!!! Its so moisturizing, but its not going to completely whipe off like most moisturizing foundations.I consider myself a connoisseur of foundations! You name it and I have probably tried it! This stuff is AMAZINNGG! It’s super buildable and its full coverage which is super important to me because I have huge patches of discoloration on my face. Sometimes I feel like its all people see despite others reassurance. So FULL COVERAGE without looking caked is a MUST!! I’ve been using this one for about a yearish and its everything you could want in an everyday foundation! Also IT SMELLS SO GOODDDD!!

Quote Of The Week

Courage is the ability to climb the highest mountain even when you are afraid, and it is

Also the ability to rise and keep going on the hardest of days.

We all can have courage, but it does not always look the same.

-Morgan Harper Nichols

Another piece of gold from MHN! I’m needing a lot of courage with the things going on in my life lately. This quote is a reminder that I am still showing courage and showing up even when it doesn’t feel like it. It takes so much courage to do the right thing when its hard. Those moments of courage are where change happens, or where people are made.

Anyway! I love you guys and I am SO SORRY this post was a day late!!

OKAY LOVE YOU BYE!!

Balm dotcalm Glossier

I’m a huge Glossier fan in general, but this shiz is amazinggg! I’ve tried all the flavors (With the exception of Mango because its brand new) and the best is Rose, with a close second by mint. The consistency is think and creamy, they make your lips feel ssooo AMAZING!! PRO TIP: Put some one before bed each night and wake up with the most kissable lips you’ve ever had!

Get some HERE!

Quote of the Week

“And everyday, the world will drag you by the hand, yelling, “This is important! And this is important! You need to worry about this! And this! And this!” And each day, it’s up to you to yank your hand back, put it on your heart and say, “No, This is what’s important.”

IMG_0120_Facetune_06-06-2019-16-37-52

This quote REALLY resonated with me, I ALWAYS have a heard time doing whats best for myself at the expense of others, and it can be a really great quality, but its also a horrible quality. You HAVE to know when to say no, as I’ve gotten older I realize how important that is. As hard as its been for me to learn, you can say no and still be a good friend, you can say no and still be a good person, you can say no and still have empathy, you can say no and still care DEEPLY about others! What you can’t do is allow others to stop what your are doing for yourself because its better for them! Yes be inconvenience yourself for  others, yes go out of your way for others, but know when to PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN!

Okay sunny amazing beautiful people! I have to go! Just know I love you and I hope you enjoy these FAVORITES!! Let me know your current favorites the comments below! I hope you have an AMAZING week filled with TONS of sunshine! byyye!!IMG_0211

Quote of the Week

“When you start to feel like things could have been better this year, remember the mountains and valleys that brought you here.
They are not accidents, and those moments were not in vain.
You are not the same. You have grown, and are growing, you are breathing, you are living, you are wrapped in endless boundless grace. And things will get better, there is more to you than yesterday.”
-MHN-

I’ve been feeling lately like I’ve just been spinning my wheels. (lol that sounds so dramatic) But really, Ive been feeling like I’ve been pushing forward in pursing my dreams, and that I’m not getting anywhere, I’m not making a difference, or progressing, and its been wearing on me.  Sometimes I scroll Pinterest at night especially if I’m feeling down. When I stumbled across this quote it brought tears to my eyes, I felt some much truth in it. I hope you can feel it too!

(The poet who wrote this is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITES she post super amazing quotes on IG you should follow her! HERE is the link to here IG!)

Okay thank you for letting me share! Let me know your current FLAVorites in the comments below! I hope you enjoyed this!!
