You know how it goes. 🙂
Here are five of my current favorite errrthing products right now.
1. Kerastase Spray À Porter ($36 for a 150ml bottle)
This week, in a shock to everyone (including myself), I’ve actually had the motivation to, ya know, do something with my hair other than throw it into a bun and fugghetaboutit. So, out came the Kerastase Spray À Porter.
I hadn’t used it in a while and didn’t realize how low I was until I was halfway through styling my mop yesterday and heard the nozzle go pffffft.
WHAT WAS THAT!?
Good thing Karen from the past was forward-thinking enough to realize that current timeline Karen would get into this situation, and therefore stored a backup bottle in the hair products drawer.
Yeah, this stuff is the ISH. I know I’ve probably been gushing about it for a year, but it’s basically a styling spray that does a little bit of everything, and it does it all so well that you might not even need/want anything else.
It texturizes, volumizes, gives light hold (not too crunchy), enhances waves and lifts roots. You can even use it as a dry shampoo to absorb oil in a pinch.
I don’t even know why I keep trying other hair products with Kerastase Spray À Porter around.
Oh, wait! — I do know. It’s called short-term beauty memory, haha!
2. Cuisinart Smart Stick 2-Speed Hand Blender ($59.95)
GURL, you know my cooking usually falls somewhere in the spectrum between “questionably edible” and “downright gross,” but I’ve been trying to be better lately and cut down on processed foods, and eat more of the bountiful fruit of the loins of the earth…
My mom got me this Cuisinart Hand Blender for Christmas last year, and I kid you not, I use it almost every freaking day.
I use it to make smoothies, beat eggs, purée soup, do my hair…
NO! Not that last one. 🙂
I also have a regular blender, but I don’t like lugging it out, and then having to clean it up and put it away again.
I know, First World Kitchen Problems.
This hand blender, though, is so easy to store and clean, and it just works. I used it to make this Pink Power Detox Smoothie this morning, by the way, and it was BOMB.
I would’ve taken a picture of it but, as usual, I inhaled it too quickly, haha! (the smoothie, not the blender)
3. MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush ($21)
You know how you sometimes you squirrel away a product that you love in drawer, but then time passes and you not only forget that you love it, but that it even exists?
That’s what happened to this pan of MAC Cream Colour Base in Hush.
Try not to be hypnotized by the limited edition Pedro Lourenço packaging…because it’s also available in the permanent line.
Anyway, Hush. This pearly peach cream highlighter (the best one out there now!) is one of those treasures that you don’t remember how much you love until you find it after it goes missing.
You can wear it on bare skin, on top of foundation, and even on top of powder. Sometimes I use mine to blend out the edges of a transition shade on my eyes, and then I’ll pop a little in the inner corners for dat luminous look.
If glowing skin is your #1 priority, get thee in yo’ life, ASAP.
4. Cute Sonix iPhone cases (about $35 each at Nordstrom)
El Hub got me this one for Valentine’s Day, and it’s one of my favorite phone cases ever.
I thought it might be too slippery at first, since it’s very smooth and almost slick, but it’s not. It feels comfy in my paw, and it’s easy enough to grip (haven’t dropped it yet, knocks on wood).
I saw on the Nordstrom website the other day that Sonix also has one with a pineapple design.
Don’t ask me why, but I’ve been irrationally obsessed with pineapple prints lately. The obsession literally came out of nowhere, but now it’s here, so I’m rolling with it.
I think I’m gonna order this one today if I finish everything on my to-do list.
Shopping as motivation, my friend. Works every time. 🙂
FLAMINGOS. ON. A. SWIMSUIT.
Shout-out to reader Marisa for pointing out this Kate Spade Playa Flamingo Swimsuit, which clearly needs to find its way into my closet sooner than later.
Also, shout-out to Rachel R., who told me this hilarious flamingo story that literally cracked me up for 10 minutes!
Funny flamingo-related story: For 10 years, I lived in a little town closer to the Oregon Coast, and there was a housing development. This older couple put a couple plastic flamingos in their yard. The development council made them removed them. However, there was nothing in the charter about what color you could paint your house.
Yep! They painted their entire McMansion in bright flamingo pink, and put flamingo shaped lights and pictures in some of their windows. The council couldn’t do a damn thing about it, either. I didn’t know them personally, but those people were my heroes! That house was pink for 10 years. Last I was out that way, the house was still pink. 😀
