Checking In With a Few Products I’m Digging Lately

Happy Thursday dolls!  I swear I just got back from my whirlwind of travels and I’m off again today.  Isn’t time just flying by way too fast?  I’m heading out to Arizona today for a long weekend with my sister.  I am beyond excited since this is the first time we’ve been able to coordinate a trip like this.  I plan on laying by the pool, getting some pampering, and taking barre classes!  Yes, where we are staying has daily barre.  I had just finished switching over my closet to all my Fall clothes and it is going to be in the high 90’s every day.  I am packing major sunscreen and a big ole hat.  Make sure to follow along on Snapchat and Instagram Stories.  I wanted to share a few things I’ve been digging lately, a roundup of some great online purchases, and a general overall check in type of post.  Let’s get into it!



I feel like I’m always on the lookout for the perfect work bag and this one by Dagne Dover totally fits the bill.  It has a low profile, buttery soft leather, and tons of compartments on the inside.  The best part is that it isn’t crazy heavy all loaded up and the strap distributes the weight evenly.  I adore the rose gold accents.  It fits my computer, camera, and all my other necessities with ease.  I was torn between the bone leather color or the burgundy.  Definitely, check out this brand, I was very impressed with the quality.  This is the top I’m wearing in the above shot.


cookie chips

Christina sent me these cookie chips a little while ago and I cannot stop eating them.  The seat salted peanut butter is quickly climbing to the top for me.  I like that I can read every ingredient on the label and they are GMO-free.  If you follow the brand on Instagram  and leave me a comment with a flavor you want to try, I have a giveaway of goodies to send to you!


From all my travel posts, I do get approached by a few travel brands to check out their gear.  Mark already has this Briggs & Riley bag and let me tell you it was like Princess and the Pea to find him a carryon bag that would fit all his requirements.  He is 100% happy with it and the warranty puts TUMI to shame.  They sent me this carry-on bag and he loves it.  It’s super light weight, has a water repellent material and it has a back catch that slides over the handle to keep it in place.  The cabin bag is from their new Kinzie Street Collection, which is geared towards millennials to help them navigate their world from day to night.  Mark also really likes the handle on it.  If you are in the market for a new bag, I really recommend you check out Briggs and Riley. I guarantee it will be the last bag you ever have to buy.  The warranty is top notch and there are a ton of reviews online that validate their customer service.


Dr. Brite

As you know I love my hippie products and I’ve been addicted to the EWG website.  I have been reading about all the toxic crap in toothpaste lately but I haven’t been willing to give up my daily whitening agents.  Triclosan is toxic and in a lot of toothpastes.  It has recently been banned in handsoaps but is still lingering around in the products that are put in our mouth every day.  I reached out to Dr. Brite which is a 100% natural line that is EWG verified.  The toothpaste has activated charcoal helps with whitening, it is SLS and fluoride free.  I also have the travel kit that can be taken in your carry on luggage which includes a mouth wash.  The whitening pens are also my new fav, I use them in the morning and at night.  I highly recommend you check out this brand.  Between that and my deodorant, I have really crossed over!


Latest Online Orders Hits



Zara strikes it right again with these faux leather moto leggings.  They are perfection!  Just make sure to size up because the small was pretty tight!


I have been on the hunt for a pair of velvet skinnies and I picked up these Rag & Bone ones during the last Shopbop sale.  I’m always afraid that velvet is going to be bulky and add on weight.  These are straight perfection.  They aren’t bulky, have great stretch, and make your legs look thin.  I cannot wait to wear them with sweaters and booties.  Speaking of both, I picked up this cashmere sweater (Sloane cashmere crew style) and these black booties (Valinor booties) during the sale as well.  The booties.  I can’t even.  They look good with everything.  I thought they might be narrow with my wide foot but no problem and super comfy.


Bargain Friendly Buys

This faux leather moto jacket looks super high end in person and completely budget friendly.  I have been wearing this striped crop top with everything and it’s under $15.  This sweater just came back in stock!  Grab it before it sells out again, insanely soft and perfect for the Fall.  Check this laser cut faux suede jacket.  I finally got these lululemon mesh dupes and they are fab!  Just size up, I went with a medium.


Three Things on my Lust List

How about this dark velvet cross body beauty from Rebecca Minkoff?!?!  Talk about swoon worthy.  I have visions already of this bell sleeve sweater from BCBG.  Or how about this sparkly passport case?


Well, there you have it!  A few things trending on my radar right now.  Make sure to follow and tell me which flavor you want to try to win the giveaway!  I hope you are having a fab week and make sure to follow all my travels along!
