There's no rhyme or reason for this post I just want to share some things I've been loving with you all. Probably because when I find products that I love, I obsess over them and want everyone around me to experience the same joy. ;)
Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder // Some people really luck out in the hair department and are fortunate enough to go days sans greasy roots and stringy hair. I was not one of the lucky few. I was, however, blessed to stumble upon this amazing dry shampoo/volumizer that smells fabulous, doesn't leave a white residue, and actually works. This girl, who has had to wash her hair every single day or every other day for years, has been able to go up to four days between washings. Gross. And fabulous. This small size has lasted for months and has been well worth the $12.
Rifle Paper Co. Phone Cases // I'm extremely particular when it comes to phone cases. . .I don't like anything too bulky, it has to be cute, has to be colorful so I can find it easily when I set it down, has to be able to withstand being dropped a few (hundred) times without cracking the case or breaking the screen, and it can't cost an arm and a leg. As you can see, I have several demands. ;) My in-laws gave me this phone case for Christmas last year and it was fabulous because it had a hard shell that protected the back and sides, with a soft inlay that protected the edges on the front. I dropped my phone more times than I care to admit and never had a single issue with it. Since my phone recently decided to give up the ghost, I bought a new one and subsequently ordered this case. I'm just as happy with it as with the first!
Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter // I didn't get serious about using any lotion/body butter until a few weeks ago. However, it has since become a necessity as my skin has started to get super itchy . For weeks I've been searching for a firming lotion/stretch mark cream that doesn't smell awful and doesn't leave me feeling greasy for hours. One lotion in particular that I tried had such an awful smell that I threw it away after using it twice, and that made my frugal heart break a little. After reading some articles and talking to a few friends, I decided to try the Burt's Bees stuff and it's ahhh-mazing. There's no smell (which I love), it soaks in within a matter of minutes and leaves my skin incredibly soft (which I love), and it prevents me from feeling itchy all day long (which I really love)! This is the kind of stuff that I plan on keeping around even after baby comes to get me through the winter!
PinkBlush Maternity Dresses // (For starters, it's ridiculously hard to take a photo of a dress, so here's my 14 week baby bump photo.) I can't even describe how much I love these. The fabrics are amazingly soft, the cuts are comfy, they're nursing friendly, and they'll fit like non-maternity dresses after baby comes! I'm all for maternity clothes that I can still wear after baby arrives. The downside is that they're a bit pricier than what I normally like to spend on clothing (because I'm cheap), but I'm finding that's just the case with maternity clothes in general. (More fabric, higher costs? Specialty clothing, higher costs?) With PinkBlush, I wait for one of their awesome sales or search online for a coupon code before placing my order and that makes the purchase even better. 

Have any products you've been loving lately?


  1. Such a cute dress! P.S. I love Burt. He makes the best products.

  2. That dress is a keeper! I found the best mix of dried fruit at Trader Joe's and I want to eat it every day (jack fruit, mango, coconut). So good!
