loving lately, volume 10

Hey hey hey!

It’s been a hot second since I’ve done one of these, so I thought I’d give you a rundown of all the things I’ve been googly-eye over lately! (If you’ve been following along for a bit, I renamed this from ‘Friday Favorites,’ just fyi!) Also, I just realized this post is a litttttle product-heavy, but I promise everything is less than $40 — whoop whoop! #ballinonabudget

+ Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cups

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are probably my least favorite candy (don’t hate me!), but these almond butter cups are e v e r y t h i n g 🙌🏼 I’ve also had TJ’s sunflower butter cups, but I can say with certainty that the almond butter ones reign supreme.

+ Rose Ointment

Young Living’s Rose Ointment is a dream! Literally the best because I use it for soooo many things — smooth lips, flyaway hairs + frizz, dry patches, elbows, etc. It’s a deeply nourishing blend for dry skin all around. Rose essential oil improves skin texture, while Tea Tree works to soothe rough, irritated skin. (ps — I’m a Young Living Distributor! If you’d like to try it, contact me and I’ll add it to my monthly order and get you 24% off (just pay the shipping)! Trust me, you need this 🥰

+ Lander Torrey iPhone case in taupe

Ordering this riiiiiiight now! I’ve been looking for a new phone case and I think I found it! I wanted something cute, simple, durable and the detachable lanyard is an added bonus! I’m always holding onto my phone while I steer my shopping carts, soooo basically I’m always praying I don’t drop my phone (such is the life of a klutz 🤘🏼). The lanyard will help prevent it from falling (but if it does, the case can withstand a fall from up to 10 ft!) and the Thermoline insulation layer will keep my phone at optimal working temp in extreme climates. PLUS look at that cute pebble-like surface! It comes in 4 colors but the taupe is my favorite! Also, I feel like I should mention this isn’t sponsored 😅just love at first sight.

+ Vega Protein & Greens in coconut almond

I’ve been looking for a good vegan protein powder and I’m pleased to announce I have met THE ONE. I love everything coconut so choosing a flavor was a no-brainer for me. I’m loving it in smoothies — the taste is INCREDIBLE — plus, it’s gluten-free and non-GMO!

+ Bodum Schiuma Milk Frother

I could probably cry thinking about how much I love this little milk frother. I’m sure you can find some fancier gadget with all the frothy bells + whistles, but I’m here to tell ya that for the low, low price of $6.99, this works great! As I write, I’m sipping the dreamiest concoction thanks to this little guy — I poured a little hazelnut creamer in my coffee cup, added a little cinnamon, frothed + poured in my hot coffee. This frother is L I F E - C H A N G I N G. You heard it hear first.

+ Project 62’s Reversible Knit Geo Throw Blanket

If you’re in need of a neutral, comfy + decently priced throw, look no further! I picked this up at my local Target a few weeks ago and I lovelovelove it. It’s like a tight sweater material, it’s super soft and I love that it’s reversible! I got it in tan/white 👍🏼(thought it’s more of taupe/cream?)

+ Cat & Jack Jelly Slide Sandals

If you’re a ‘90s girl and a size 7/8 or smaller in shoes … this one’s for you! hah. Seriously one of my favorite shoe purchases. So thankful I decided to try them on and they actually fit! I’m still waiting for butterfly clips and gel pens to make a comeback, but until then, you’ll find me wearing these + blasting some NSYNC and Spice Girls ✌🏼Like, duh!

+ Center Point Road

Just the whole album and the song and the making of it all and the meaning behind it … I’m a big Thomas Rhett fan and I love following him + his wife on Instagram. I didn’t know how TR could possibly top his last album, but “Center Point Road” is a dang good one. I’d like to think all of the country roads in my Northern California hometown are my Center Point Road. I’ve spent countless days and nights driving up and down those with my music blasted, passing cows. Many memories are also housed on Sylvan Avenue, too, where my high school lives and where I learned how to drive (if ya know, ya know). Where’s your Center Point Road?

Hope you all have a great week! (and happy shopping 😉)

love + light,

diy sea salt spray

You know that scene in “The Little Mermaid” when Ariel is on the rock singing the “Part of Your World” reprise and the waves are all 🌊🌊 and her red hair is all 🧜🏻‍♀️🧜🏻‍♀️ and beachy wave perfection? I’m gonna call this diy the Ariel-Hair-On-Rock-During-Part-Of-Your-World-Reprise spray (AHORDPOYWR spray, if you will).

you’ll need —

+ 2-oz glass spray bottle (if you use a bigger one, just adjust accordingly)
+ warm water
+ 1/2 tbsp sea salt
+ 1/4 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil (make sure it’s fractionated and not regular coconut oil — super important!)
+ 5 drops lavender essential oil
+ 5 drops cedarwood essential oil

I N S T R U C T I O N S —

Fill the glass spray bottle with warm water until it’s almost to the top (but leave a little room for the oils). Add the sea salt and shake until the salt is dissolved. Add the oils and shake it up again. Spritz on your hair after you shower and then scrunch it all up to bring out your hair’s natural texture. I’d recommend shaking it up before each use to make sure all the oils are incorporated 👍🏼👍🏼

I love this little diy so much because it lets me be done with my hair super quick, it makes my hair smell AHHHMAZING and it also makes it super soft! Lavender and Cedarwood are so good for hair, too 🤘🏼 Plus, I mean, who doesn’t want their hair to look like they just got back from the beach?? Ariel would be proud.
