Little Loves Vol 8

No comments
Hello for the first time in a long time. It's been a very life-changing week and not in a good way. I told you in my last post (Manicure Monday) that I was dealing with some personal things and wouldn't be on the blog much... well it's 9 days later and we're back in business.

Last week, my aunt passed away. She was in the hospital and passed away on Friday, with arrangements being on Monday & Tuesday this past week. She was young, it was heartbreaking and honestly really painful.

I'm no stranger to loss, as my dad passed away four years ago this coming March. I wrote about grief here but this grief is very different. At some point, I'll write about it because I think it's important to talk about.

My family and I are in the healing process, my mom lost her sister & my grandpa lost his daughter... it's all very sad and tragic but we'll get through.

I wanted to come on here, give a little update and try to get back to regularly scheduled programming. I'm not in the right mindset to write something of substance so we're going with a little loves post because I haven't posted one since October so now is as good a time as any!


Starbucks and my bkr bottle filled with water are staples in my everyday routine. I truly cannot survive without them. I've tried a lot of different reusable water bottles but the bkr ones are by far the best ones. I have multiple and swear by them! 


I was looking through photo before the wake and funeral for my aunt and discovered a bunch of adorable baby pictures of me. I really love my baby pictures because as the first child, my family used to dress me up and my mom would tell me to pose and then take pics. I was really cute and I'm not ashamed to say it.


I'm still burning winter scents and am truly obsessed with my winter candle holder from Bath and Body Works. I would love to get this hearts one for Valentine's Day.  


I love Turbie Twist towels and have been using them for years. They reached out to me and sent me this curly hair set. It's a micro-fiber towel for your wet hair and then their recently released satin pillowcases. I have a Kristin Ess silk pillowcase and love it so I'm sure the Turbie Twist satin pillowcase will be incredible!



There's more to come on these patches but wow, The Good Patch is my new favorite brand. The B12 patches really help keep me awake when I'm a little groggy or run down, and I'm excited to try more of their patches. Wellness patches are such a huge trend and I think The Good Patch is hitting it right on the nose. 


I ran out of my latest bottle of Simple Micellar Water and haven't repurchased (I'm testing out some others right now) but this has been my go-to for YEARS. It's the only way I cleanse my skin in the morning and does a great job. My skin isn't acne-prone but is very dry and sensitive and this is a holy grail. 


If you are in the book world you had to hear about Verity by Colleen Hoover. It's taken everyone by storm and I read it over the course of two days. It is a wild, ass thriller that is twisted beyond words. I have a full review coming soon so stay tuned! It's currently on Kindle Unlimited so go get a copy if you're curious. 


These are my favorite travel companions; a Neverfull, Kate Spade furry backpack, and a Louis Vuitton scarf. It's the perfect winter look and makes me so happy. 


Before my low-buy year, I bought a priority planner from May Designs. If you are in the market for a new planner, you need to check this out. It keeps me insanely organized and isn't dated so you can use it as much or as little as you please. I chose to go with one of my favorite Harry Potter quotes on the front, all about priorities. A full review of this bad boy is coming soon! 


I received these Pacifica vitamins in PR a few weeks back but haven't tried them yet (waiting to get through my Nature's Bounty & Olly gummies first) but I have high hopes, especially for the Insta Mood ones... I love anything calming so these will definitely be reviewed.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and I'll talk to you tomorrow!

xoxo
