What I Am Loving Lately

I have picked up a few new things over the last couple of weeks and thought I would share them all with you in one spot! This is a little mix of everything, skincare, beauty, candy, etc. Basically everything I am loving lately!


Boscia MakeUp-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil: I used to love Boscia a few years ago and used it exclusively for awhile. Like every other face wash, it quit working in time and I switched it up. I watched a youtube haul recently where someone was obsessed with this stuff and I thought I would give it a try. You guys!!! I love it!!! It takes off allllll my make up, including my hard to remove liner and mascara. I like that you rub it on your face while it is dry then wash it away. It leaves my face feeling so soft and not all tight and dry like most make up removers. I have zero redness after using it and it has a very faint smell that is pleasant, nothing over powering or irritating. I am 100% buying the full size bottle when this runs out. I grabbed this size for $10 at Sephora.

The Healthy Deodorant

The Healthy Deodorant in Vanilla Lavender: I have been on a quest to find a healthier deodorant for some time. I have tried Paper Wai and a few others and they all quit working after awhile and a few of them I hated the application of. Paper Wai I am looking at you making me apply with my fingers. Biana (and someone else who has skipped my mind at the moment) have raved about this one so I thought I would give it a try. Biana has never steered me wrong. I LOVE this stuff!!! I have been using it for awhile and the scent is awesome, the application is a roller ball just like a normal deodorant, and it has lasted all day in this miserable Alabama August heat. It is a little more expensive than a regular deodorant but so, so worth it. Plus who doesn’t love an excuse to go to Sephora, am I right? Though I am sure you can order online from other places too.

Ulta Finds:I won an Ulta gift card from Lindsay and couldn’t wait to use it! It just so happens that the sales gods were shining down on me the day I looked because they were having a flash sale!!! I scored this amazing Michael Kors Sexy Amber roller ball and lip gloss duo for $14.99! That is half off!  It smells awesome and the lip gloss color is so gorgeous!!! I also got a good deal on these Real Techniques beautyblenders for $7.99 for two and I replaced one of my favorite Bare Minerals shadows, Bare Skin.

Ulta Haul

This is the second time I have purchased the Real Techniques beautyblenders and I love them. They are just as good as the real thing, because I have used it before too. I just cant bring myself to ever pay $20 again for one because lets me honest, even after cleaning them you want a new one after a few months. Mine had started falling apart a little and looking dingy. At the price of the RT, I don’t mind tossing them and grabbing new every few months and feel no guilt now!

I got a few free samples but I wont be able to try out the CC cream or eye cream until after baby comes because of some harmful ingredients. The Nectarine Rose lotion sample is alright but a little too strong smelling for my liking.


Hint Fizz: Sometimes I really just need something other than water. There aren’t many healthy options while pregnant. I want to avoid anything bad, including artificial sweeteners. I have hated La Croix since becoming pregnant. Makes me sad because I loved that stuff before! I found these bottles at Target. They are sold individually, I am hoping I can find a pack to make them more cost effective because they are delicious!!!


Candy: I had to stop at Walgreens the other day and happened upon these. Combine my two favorite flavor bags of skittles in one? Yes, please!!!

Found anything new that you love? Have you tried any of these?

Linking up with Amanda. Hope you all have a great weekend!!! We have our prepared childbirth class and hospital tour tomorrow!!!

    That cleanser sounds really cool! And I may have to try that new deodorant, I’m using toms of Maine right now.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo August 26, 2016 at 9:38 am

    I want to check out that face cleaner!
    & I’m all about healthy deodorants. I’m keeping my eye out for these!
    I love seeing more & more seltzer water options out there.

    Happy Friday! Ok, I need to try this deodorant. I have tried so many natural ones that end up failing miserably on a hot day. I remember Biana mentioning this one too. I’m glad to hear they have it Sephora because I would rather just buy in store than pay extra for shipping. Great Ulta finds! I am headed their on my lunch break because, yay, they just opened one right near me!!! Have a great weekend. Beautifully Candid

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer August 26, 2016 at 10:06 am

    That deodorant has been on my list forever so I need to just bite the bullet! And I am going to check out that face cleaner now! Happy Friday!

  • Reply Laura August 26, 2016 at 10:31 am

    Is it awful that I’ve never used a beauty blender thing? I’m always looking for an awesome face cleanser that removes EVERYTHING, so i’ll have to check that one out! And skittles for the win, always.

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native August 26, 2016 at 10:53 am

    I got those Skittles at Walgreens a few weeks (months? Idk) ago and they were soooo good! I’m super interested in that deodorant!

  • Reply Marie August 26, 2016 at 10:56 am

    Oh I so need to try that Boscia cleanser, I love their products. I have used IT cosmetics CC Cream , it’s fantastic!!
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista August 26, 2016 at 11:03 am

    Awwww no! I’m so sad that La Croix hasn’t agreed with you since being pregnant! It’s been my go-to for pool and beach drinks other than water. Glad you found something you like! And I need to try that deodorant, I’m way overdue on ditching the ones packed with artificial crap! Happy Friday <3

  • Reply Audrey August 26, 2016 at 11:03 am

    Ick. I think skittles are so gross. Haha. Sparkling water, too. I’m glad you’ve found a drink alternative that you like, though!!
    Have fun at the class and tour- so exciting!

  • Reply Dani August 26, 2016 at 11:42 am

    I love that Sephora offers smaller sizes so you can try new products without spending a lot on full-size version, and that Ulta almost always gives samples. Great score on the Michael Kors- what an awesome dual product too, saves space in the purse! And I think I need to try that cleansing oil. Have a great weekend!

    i’ve never been a fan of hard candy; chocolate is my jam, though 🙂

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World August 26, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    When my deodorant runs out I’ll have to look into that one. Is that water sweeter or is it still along the lines of La Croix?

  • Reply carly August 26, 2016 at 3:13 pm

    Looove these posts! Hint fizz is the best– I always get so excited when I see them on sale, because as much as I love sparkling water, it’s hard to justify paying so much sometimes. I love that boscia makeup remover too and am always surprised it doesn’t get more hype. I scrolled past that bag of skittles so fast because it looks sooo good! lol!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph August 26, 2016 at 3:30 pm

    I use a lavender deodorant from a local farm and I love it!

  • Reply Jess August 26, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    That Boscia makeup remover sounds really good. I was using a Clinique one that worked really well, but ended up clogging up my drain! I love natural deodorants. I’ve never tried that one, but may when mine runs out. I have used Meow Meow Tweet and now Crystal Essence and love both so far. I’ve been craving fruity candy lately. I really need to get my hands on some Skittles or Sweet Tarts!

  • Reply Erika August 26, 2016 at 3:52 pm

    Those hint fizz drinks look so good! I am definitely going to have to find a few to bring to work. I have been craving something other than water all week!

  • Reply Jenn @ Optimization, Actually August 26, 2016 at 11:33 pm

    I was hardcore craving skittles the other day! Ryan actually humored me and we went to Wawa and got candy for me and a smoothie for him and it was kind of nice to indulge together for once instead of it being me being unhealthy and having to feel guilty about it. I’ve been looking into makeup remover, but I tend to be really lazy about it because I have to actually rinse my face in the sink (gasp!), so more often than not I just scrub it off with a wash cloth.

  • Reply Kasie Chelanne August 27, 2016 at 11:53 pm

    Isn’t that deodorant absolutely fabulous? I’ve sampled it as well and also can’t get enough of it. I’ve got to try those Beauty Blender subs…I’m so tired of paying $20+ for one sponge!

  • Reply August 29, 2016 at 6:44 am

    I’ve not heard of that drink before! I’m trying to wean myself off soda. So far, I’m down to being a social soda drinker, hehe.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders August 29, 2016 at 11:23 pm

    So I haven’t really tried any Bosnia products, but I have gotten a few samples in Sephora boxes, and it obviously sounds like I need to try them sooner rather than later! And hooray for rollerballs! They’re my favorite thing to travel with!

  • Reply Amy Getz August 30, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    Love that deodorant recommendation – I have also wanted a healthier version for myself and my daughter – I’m going to check it out!
