Thank you for all of the sweet love on yesterday’s birthday post! And yes, I agree, five years is definitely a milestone. If you missed the post go check it out as I am giving away $100 to Shobpop and as an extra bonus, there is a giveaway as part of today’s post too, and hint, it might just have something do with the gorgeous blue Criselda Ball Drop Earrings I am wearing above!
July was a crazy busy month with almost as many days traveling as I had home but I was still able to pick up and try a lot of new products! (And I counted, 9 different days on airplanes). From all of these finds I wanted to tell you about my top seven, some I received as press samples, some I bought at the spur of the moment, some were friend recommendations, and some were well researched!
Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Turban | After 16 years of swimming you better believe I have used nearly every kind of towel imaginable so when I saw this in my Influenster box I knew I’d give it a try but wasn’t expecting much. And I was wrong. Not only does it dry your hair faster than a normal tower but for me the real cinch was that it greatly eliminates the frizz – a huge issue in this very humid Summer. I have a feeling this is going to be a long-time favorite.
Custom Roman Numerals Necklace | This is the only product on the list that was not for me but I found this adorable shop on Etsy and ordered my friend a Roman Numeral necklace with her wedding date as I thought it would be a fun personalized touch to remember her special day and it came out beautifulL!
BROWFOOD Browfood Aqua Brow Powder + Pencil Duo | I have tried many, MANY brow products over the years and while the Anastasia Beverly Hills Perfect Brow Pencil ($23) is amazing I usually opt for the $2 NYC Kohl Brow pencil but this browfoods combination of pencil and powder might trump both of those.
AmazonBasics Wireless Bluetooth Dual 3W Speaker | When I was in Washington, D.C. for my college reunion one of my friends brought his BlueTooth speaker and we were jamming to great tunes all weekend. I realized that evne in my studio apartment the audio books and music I play from my phone could be so much better with a little boost from a speaker so I picked this up on Primeday and love it!
Criselda Ball Drop Earrings in Cobalt Blue | As part of my ongoing partnership with BaubleBar I get the chance to pick out a few items every month and my eyes instantly gravitated towards this beautiful hue of Royal Blue and they are even prettier in person (I am wearing them in this photo, also seen above)!
And my honorary mention would be the Nature’s Way Activated Charcoal. I did not count them here because I did not buy them in July and because they aren’t very pretty for a collage | While I was in Miami over Memorial Day my friend Ali told me about the magic that is activated charcoal. The 100% natural pulls are incredible and I have found that if I take them before a night out the next day I feel much better!
Lastly, what would a round up of my recent favorite things be without a little something for one of you? I am so obsessed with these Criselda Ball Drop Earrings I am going to give one of you your own pair in teh color of your choice, just enter below!
