current favorites

It's been a hot minute since I have shared my current favorite items with you guys and I have so many new ones so I thought why not?! I have been trying some new products that I have yet to share here on my blog or at all in depth. If you guys have any favorites you have recently discovered, share them in the comments below. Or if you've tried out any of these then let me know! Alright, here we go! 


Recently I have been loving a more casual and tomboy look. I have been grabbing a lot of vintage tee's lately and I love the way they look, feel, and how comfy they are. I also have been obsessed with these Volcom off white jeans. I was gifted them a while back and just haven't taken them off since. They are so soft and comfy I could literally fall asleep in them. Here's how I've been styling both these awesome items! 


It's not new news that I love skincare and always look to try new brands/products out. I love sharing my skincare journey with my followers and getting suggestions from them as well. Within the last couple months I have discovered a new brand, Red Earth Beauty, and their products not only are so cute (and instagrammable) but work wonders for my skin. I specifically love the concentrate oil and serum for brightening. It has Kakadu Plum which is the worlds most natural source of Vitamin C. Which is sooooo good for your skin. I also discovered Love, Beauty, Planet a haircare line ethically made and sourced that also has drastically (in just a couple weeks) improved my hair strength, shine, and moisture. I have been using the Ylang Ylang shampoo + conditioner combo.

I love discovering new music, even if it's just new to me. Music is such a big part of a creatives day as it can make it better, worse or just plain vanilla. I work from home so I always have a playlist playing in the background to make my day just that much better. Here's a link to a current playlist I have been jamming out to! Also links to some albums I have discovered and fell in love with! 


I am always on the hut for cool + new apps. It could be anything from a photo editing app, to a game, or an app to keep me more organized and productive. I love them all. I recently have been loving these two apps: 1. Unfold and 2. Headspace: Meditation app. The first one, Unfold is actually a Instagram Story editing app that gives you cool layouts for your IG stories and even lets you edit photos into polaroid frames, and old "kodak" styled film strips. The second app is the Headspace: Meditation app which has guided meditations. I was a little skeptical of this at first as I am not someone who really meditates as much as I pray. But I have found this app to be helpful because it essentially reminds me to stop, turn off all other apps on my phone, to be in a still and quiet space, and to calm down. it has relaxing music on it, there's questions you can answer that help you kind of "let go" of all the mental garage flooding your mind and you leave feeling more energetic, calmer and ready to take on the day. 

Alright, that's it for my current favorites right now. If you have anything you've been loving - let me know! Send them to me on my social media accounts or in the comments down below! Have a great rest of your week!
