As usual, I'm going to share my favorites of the week today. I hope you enjoy, and have a great weekend!
Jess BeauticianI just discovered this YouTube channel, and I'm hooked! Jess shares natural beauty products and vegan recipes. She recently did a daily series on her channel called Vegan June, where she shared what she ate every day. All of her food looks amazing, and I love the fact that she shows how to prepare it as well as the recipe for everything! If you're wanting to try out the vegan lifestyle, I would highly recommend checking her out.
Earlier this week the 10th CrossFit Games started. While I don't do CrossFit, I love watching any kind of competition and this one is so fun to follow! I watched for the first time last year (and even wrote a post about it), and this year I followed the entire "season" much closer. I'm so excited to see what events they throw out and how some of my favorites will do! I'm hoping for a huge comeback win for Iceland Annie on the women's side, and an upset from the hilarious Sam Dancer on the men's side. (I wrote this earlier in the week, and so far both athletes are doing great with some event wins in the early rounds!) P.S.- you can find out how to watch the events here!
Play! by Sephora
This month I got my first Play! by Sephora box! After being on the wait list for a few months, I was so excited to get it in the mail. Since I go to the gym before work every day, I've only been using my travel sized products, so this box is really useful to me. I haven't bought any new makeup so far this year, so I thought this was a great way to try out new products without spending a ton of money (each box is only $10!). Here's what came in my first box:Benefit Dew the Hoola : This is the only product that I don't like so far. I don't really use bronzers much, and this one is really orange.
Smashbox Iconic Photo Finish Primer : A great, basic primer! This has been a cult favorite for years, and I like it as well. It's a silicone primer, which really smooths out the skin and leaves it feeling so soft!
beautyblender blotterazzi : In the summer, my skin gets really oily, so this will be useful for me. The idea of this sponge is to use it in place of blotting sheets. I already use and love the original beautyblender, so I was excited to get this product! This alone is $20, which already makes this box worth the money to me.
Ouai Wave Spray : I've heard a lot of hype about this brand (which was developed by the Kardashian's hair stylist) so I was really excited to try out this spray! I've been taking it to the gym to use after showering, and it smells SO good. It also gives my hair some volume, but not too much wave. What I really love is the fact that this doesn't make my hair feel crunchy, like a lot of wave sprays!
First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser : I love this brand, so I was happy to get a travel size to take to the gym. This is a basic cleanser that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin at all!
NEST Citrine Perfume : Every box comes with a perfume sample, and I really liked this one! It's a citrus scent with notes of Lemon Blossom, Lotus Flower, Freesia, Dew Drop Accord, and Precious Wood.
I promised to update you all on our hammock after I got it and tried it out- and I'm in love! I've been spending time relaxing (usually eating ice cream) in the evening, and it's so comfortable. It's also really roomy, and Dan and I are both able to fit in the hammock with room for Selma. It was easy to set up and looks great on our deck! It's no longer on sale, but I would still recommend it if you're looking for a cheap, high-quality hammock!
I've been awful about keeping up with my favorite TV shows lately, but one that Dan and I both enjoy and watch weekly is Big Brother! This season is so entertaining thus far, but I keep flip flopping on who I like! One minute I like Frank, then I hate him, then I love Da'Vonne, then I can't stand her, etc etc etc. One thing is for sure- I can't wait to see who's coming back into the house!
