Hello, friends! As you’ve probably seen many bloggers do, I have decided to take a spin at doing a post for my “favorites” for each month, at the end of every month. These favorites will mostly be fashion and beauty-related, but I’m also thinking about including a Charleston or Charlotte restaurant or store every now and then! I know that these are done so often on style blogs, and I truly want my blog to be a unique expression of myself, so I will try to add my own honest, fresh opinion on all of my favorites! Let me know what you think of these posts! I would love to know everyone’s opinion.
Ok, let’s get into this and see how much of my grocery budget I spent on material items this month…
T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand
Anyone that knows me, knows that I always curl my hair. I love straight hair on other people, but I just don’t feel like myself when my hair is straight. I gotta have those big Texas curls. Well, my parents gave me this curling iron for my birthday a couple of months ago, and I must say, it definitely reaches those Texas standards. It is not the cheapest curling iron by any means, but it is so light weight, high quality, and it has three barrel attachments, so you’re basically getting three curling irons out of it. It’s the same curling iron that Southern Curls and Pearls uses, and that’s where I first heard about it. It just curls your hair so incredibly well, and I will be using this curling for years down the road. (By the way, if you want a better deal on this, hit up eBay. You can buy brand new curling irons at a cheaper price. I linked a couple of eBay links for it below)
Bath and Body Works Cinnamint Supreme 2X Lipgloss
If you’re anything like me, you constantly need to have some sort of moisturizer on your lips (I’m looking at you, Carmex) and it’s kind of a problem and you low-key go into shock when you don’t have anything on your lips (oh…no one’s like me and I’m just weirdly addicted to Carmex? Never mind…). Well, I found this lipgloss at Bath and Body Works this month, and Carmex has now taken a backseat and Cinnamint is at the wheel. After I tried one tube, I went back and bought three more. This lipgloss is super moisturizing, and the cinnamon in it adds a little bit of a “kick” to your lips that makes them look a bit fuller, with just a slight natural/rosy color (like your own lip color, but better), in my opinion. And that’s always a plus!
Sam Edelman Shoes
As you can probably tell from my blog posts, I LOVE Sam Edelman shoes! I had never owned a pair until I bought a pair with my Christmas money a few months ago, and since then I have accumulated four pairs and I do not plan on stopping (I think I just heard my bank account scream in terror after I typed that). You can constantly find Sam Edelman shoes on sale, whether it’s on their own website, or on Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, or Zappos! All of the pairs I own, I got on sale! I love how a lot of their styles of shoes come in a variety of colors, and if I’m being totally honest and not trying to fish for flourishing adjectives, they are just downright CUTE. The hot pink ones in the picture above are so comfortable, and I truly mean that. I was so obsessed with them that I bought them in Oatmeal last week! I highly suggest checking out these shoes if you haven’t already!
For my final favorite of this month, I have fallen in love with wearing multiple rings at a time. It’s always been a trend that I’ve loved, and it makes me feel like Phoebe from Friends. The past couple of months I have finally spent money on rings that I really love, and I’m finally happy with the daily set-up of my fingers. Alex and Ani is a great place for rings, particularly wrap rings (get the mermaid wrap ring if you want to stare in awe at the adorableness of your thumb all day, like I do), and all of their rings come in both gold and silver! And Kendra Scott always has your back for your jewelry needs, and when I went to Savannah, Georgia for a day trip a couple weeks ago, I had to get this ring! Wearing multiple rings makes me feel so put-together, and makes staring at my nails after I get a fresh manicure, so much better.
I hope y’all enjoyed this post and are having a great week! I have some outfits planned out for the next few weeks that I’m really excited about, so keep checking back!
