The flu is going around like crazy here! Of course I got it (because if you didn't know, I tend to get every cold that comes through, ha!) and it's been a rough few days, and a few things I had scheduled for the blog had to be put off. So I thought I would share a few things in my life that I've been loving in the meantime. If y'all are into this, maybe I can make it into a monthly series, let me know what you think!
I am beyond excited about these shoes!!! If you're anything like me, you've been obsessing over these Chloé wedges (I linked the new version!) since they came out a few years ago. I heard about the Marc Fisher dupes a while ago, but $160 was still too much with my budget, so I have been patiently waiting for something cheaper to come along! AND IT FINALLY HAPPENED. Steve Madden, AKA one of my favorite shoe designers came out with these dupes that are only $60! Compared to the original $660 price tag this is incredible, especially since they look exactly the same. I've heard from others to size down half a size, but I'm a true 9 and they fit perfectly for me! Also, they are SO comfortable, I might have to buy the other two colors!
I got this case for Christmas, so it's been on my 'love' list for a while, but honestly I'm so happy with it! I had actually been wanting this case for over a year (and mentioned that in my 2016 favorites post!) and was so excited when my old laptop case finally broke so I could get this one. It's super durable, and exactly what I wanted. Other marble cases that I've tried in the past have peeled, chipped, or just broke. This one is smooth, looks professional, and again is very strong. I've gotten so many compliments on it since getting it!
Netflix Original: Santa Clarita Diet
Y'all this show is amazing. Okay, hear me out because it sounds like a crazy roller coaster of a show. It's about a normal family that has its world flipped upside down when mom Sheila (Drew Barrymore) somehow turns into a zombie. It's a cute, funny, and at times a little gruesome (in the best possible way, I assure you.) story of a family trying to deal with their challenges while still keeping their sanity and love alive. Throughout the season they attempt to look for a cure, with many ups and downs. I binge watched this a little while ago and ended up watching the whole first season in 4 days. The characters are realistic, charismatic, and hilarious as they try to figure out how to kill people without being horrible individuals. It's one of the best shows I've seen yet and I can't wait for the next season!
Starbucks Iced White Mocha
Alright alright, I've loved this drink forever, cut me some slack! It's just been a real life-saver lately! I have 8:30am classes twice a week and always need caffeine on these days. My campus luckily has a Starbucks, so I head there each morning and pick one of these up! I'm not a huge coffee person, but these have a good amount of sweetness so I can have all the delicious flavor and caffeine that I need! These also taste good hot, if it's still super cold where you live!
I posted this the other day on my Instagram, and I got the chance to try it out yesterday and am obsessed! I don't normally wear a full face of makeup, but when I do I definitely don't want it melting off or smearing! This powder is so lightweight and leaves my skin with a great matte finish. I tend to have a shiny forehead, even with matte makeup, and the powder actually covered up all the shine. I was so impressed, especially since my makeup was on for over 8 hours and still looked flawless when I went to take it off. Also I love the little poof applicator that it comes with, it makes it so easy to apply. Highly recommend!
I would love to know what products, shows, and other things you have been loving lately! I'm always excited to try new things, especially if it comes highly recommended!
