Current Necessities

current necessities

So I decided to compile a list of my current favorite products and once I was finished, I looked it over and realized how obsessed I actually was with this list.

I love these current 5 things so much that I could’ve made this the “Top 5 Products for 2016.” Folks, this post is that good.  And because of it, they are not current favorites, they are current necessities.

Enjoy.

1.) Sally Hansen “Miracle Gel” Nail Polish in Pinky Promisecurrent necessities (1)I have been on a recent mission to find the perfect brand of nail polish that fits my lifestyle.  I know it sounds silly but I NEED a polish that lasts more than a day and doesn’t take forever to dry.  This Sally Hansen brand has been a lifesaver because it coats the nail so well in two coats that there’s no need for a base or a top coat, seriously!

*Make sure you let the first coat fully dry before you apply the second.

 

2.) Makeup Forever Lipstick in “N4”N4Guys, this lipstick….ohhhh this lipstick.  I adore it!  It has looked fabulous on a countless # of my makeup clients.  It is the perfect pinky beige and it pairs so well with a gloss too!  Refer back to my post on the NYX lip glosses to see what you could wear it with!  And let me tell you why you shouldn’t buy a “nude lipstick” from a drugstore brand…because 9 times out of 10 it’s either too frosty or too sheer.  Save your wallet the heartache.

 

3.) “5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit” by Nicki Koziarz5habits

Truly, I have never read a better book than this one right here.  I’m still debating on whether or not I want I should dedicate an entire post to this book.  It’s life-changing, it’s mind-opening, and it’s the kind where you will highlight the entire book.  After I read this book I could not believe all the things I quit without even realizing it.  This book has changed me from the inside out and I want to share one of my favorite snippets from the book:

“She is able to look into the future with confidence because she is determined to become the vessel for what she has been created to do.  She’s not tossing pennies into the wishing well of life.  Her focus is contagious, and she has the ability to stick with things long enough to master them.  She understands that the days, weeks, months, and years aren’t here forever.  And the passions within her have the ability to become forgotten daydreams.”

 

4.) Stella & Dot “Geometric Crosby Bag” on sale for $75Crosby

My mom bought this bag when it first came out and I have been so in love with it ever since.  I love how clean and simple it looks but nevermind the fact that it’s still just sooo cute!  I think it’s a great bag to transition with between summer and fall and I love the idea of pairing it with skinny jeans, camel booties, and an ivory silk blouse for fall.  (I’m not the only one who plans out an entire outfit from a bag, am I?)

My sister is a Stella & Dot stylist so please contact me to order if you’re interested!

 

5.) Gold Decor Accentsbunbun

For Easter this year my mom bought me, herself and my sister this adorable gold bunny as a gift.  Even though we got it in the spring, all 3 of us still have it out for display in our homes.  I love the idea of meaningful (and beautiful) gifts in your home and there’s nothing more fabulous than little pops of bling if you ask me!

The little bun bun from above is from Hobby Lobby.  I’m not 100% sure if it’s still in stock but you’re bound to find something similar!
