Things I’m Loving Lately | AD

Hi friends! Welcome back to the blog and for another favorites-related post! It’s been a while since I’ve written a post like this and I have a few favorites to share with you. This post is sponsored by Riverdean Watches–thank you, Riverdean!

Netflix’s The Final Table

I was sick with a strain of the flu a few days after Thanksgiving and into the first week of December and spent a lot of time in bed. I also spent a lot of time reading and catching up on Netflix shows. One of the shows that I watched in entirety was The Final Table on Netflix. This show is a cooking competition between the best chefs in the world and each week focused on a different ethnicity of food. This show was so fascinating, inspiring, and definitely worth the binge.

Netflix’s Salt Fat Acid Heat

I’ve been so interested in reading the book Salt Fat Acid Heat by Samin Nosrat and was happy to learn that it had been made into a Netflix special. This show was inspirational, educational, funny, and gave me the travel bug super bad. Samin spoke about her experiences with food, cooking, and taught how to incorporate these essential elements into home-cooking. This show is also highly recommended if you need something to watch!

Riverdean Avalon Watch

Riverdean reached out to me a couple of months ago to ask if I would like to try some of their watches. I’ve been thinking about getting a new watch and was very excited to receive this one! I love the color and the marble design on the face of the watch! It has been the perfect accessory to many of the outfits I wear!

RMS Beauty Products

I’ve been trying to switch to all natural cosmetic products and decided to give RMS a try. I’ve heard so many good reviews about this brand and my best friend has also worn their products for years. I am hooked. I bought a concealer and luminizer and love how they look on my skin. I plan on writing a post about “clean beauty favorites” at some point, but I think that I’ll be using RMS concealer and luminizers for a long time.

Boxing

I took a boxing class with some of my friends in the fall and I’m (left) hooked! Haha, jokes! But seriously, this type of workout has been so therapeutic for me and has been really fun. It’s been a really long time since I actually enjoyed working out. I bought a boxing bag for myself and hung it in my garage, so now I can box whenever I wan

April 2017 Favorites 

 

He-llllllo! I had to take a break from blogging last week for some work-related stuff, but I’m back just in time to talk about my favorite things in April. Keep on reading if you want to know what they are! This post is not sponsored but a genuine review of things I have been enjoying.

Trader Joe’s Roasted Seaweed Snacks. I know this sounds weird, and it probably tastes weird to other people, but I have really been enjoying these snacks. It’s basically like eating green paper but it tastes just like sushi. The Wasabi flavored ones are also amazing. And the best part is that each packet is under $1.

Warby Parker Louise Glasses. I bought these frames a few months ago and I have been wearing them more, now that I’m used to them. I love the champagne color of the frames and the fact that they’re translucent and go with everything. I also really like that they come in a sturdy, colorful, and hard-shell case. If you’re interested in purchasing a pair of Warby Parker glasses, visit their website to order a home try-on kit which allows you to wear 5 different frames for 5 days–for free!

Stranded Loose Powder Dry Shampoo in Brunette. I have been using this product for a few months but have just been really enjoying it this month. This product was developed by two friends who were looking for a natural dry shampoo that was actually good for your hair, so they decided to make it themselves. I really love that it comes in Blonde, Brunette, and Red to meet the needs of everyone’s hair colors. I have been using the Brunette shade because my hair is no longer colored and my natural color is dark blonde. I highly recommend this product if you’re looking for a natural dry shampoo. To learn more and possibly order some of your own, visit The Stranded Shop.

Elf Poreless Face Primer. Warmer weather is coming but so is the humidity. I tend to have issues with my makeup staying on all day in the summer and so I will use a face primer during those months. I really like this primer because it minimizes the appearance of pores, it smells like tea tree oil, and it does keep my foundation on all day.

KUT from the Kloth Ripped Boyfriend Jeans. I don’t know why, but I am really into ripped jeans these days. There’s just something so homey and casual about them and you can dress them up or down. I bought this pair of jeans through StitchFix several months ago and they were such a good investment purchase. I typically don’t spend that much on jeans but I now have 2 pairs from this brand and they are the only ones I wear now.

The Night Shift. I have been watching a lot of Netflix lately while studying and I found Seasons 1-2 of this show. I’m hooked and I’m excited that it’s an ongoing show so I can watch more episodes this summer. This show is about an ER in Texas that is run by ex-military physicians. Although medical drama shows are rarely accurate of an actual hospital setting, I still like to watch them to learn more (and sometimes mock the unrealistic aspects).

What have you been loving this month?
