Things I'm Loving


1. Elf Ultimate Blending Brush

I bought this brush by accident. Not like, I put it in my cart without realizing it. More like, I put it in my cart because I thought it was a different brush and I didn't really know what I was looking for when I was in Target on that particular Sunday. I didn't know it was as dense as it was in the packaging and I thought it would make a better blush brush than the one I had. It is, unfortunately, much too dense to be used for blush, so it just sat in my brush jar all sad and lonely and unused.

A week or so ago, I saw Rachel Whitehurst talking about the same brush (if not, one very very similar from Elf) and how much she loved using it to apply her foundation. Since I would trust Rachel with anything beauty related because of her honesty, I decided to swap out my Real Techniques stippling brush for the day and test out this one. I'm not sure if it's because it's brand new and hasn't been used and abused, but it applied my foundation so beautifully that I haven't used anything besides it since. The bristles are super soft and gentle and just really buff my foundation nicely into the skin. The rounded top allows me to get around my nose and over my jaw and those tough to blend places. I think if you're looking for a good affordable foundation brush, this should be at the top of your list!


2. Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt

I had to admit to my mom that I actually liked this yogurt so I could talk about it today. I hate greek yogurt with a passion. I think it smells vile and I would never be able to stomach so much of a bite, it's so sour to me. However, she told me that I would like this vanilla greek yogurt because John Stamos is in the commercials and it doesn't have a sour taste. I complain a lot about not eating enough protein and with 12 grams of protein in one serving, it seemed like a perfect fit. I refused to try it when I was home, but she sent me back to Cleveland with one serving to see if I would like it. I pretended I didn't then proceeded to purchase two four-packs so bring with me to lunch at work. It's good, dammit. It's really good. It's the closest thing I've found to the vanilla yogurt that comes in the YoCrunch packs. It tastes good by itself, with berries, with granola. It's just a delicious yogurt and I'm really really mad that I like it and that I'm admitting that I like it so my mom can gloat and say "I told you so." I can actually guarantee she will text me "told you so" after she reads this or will attempt to leave a comment on this post. I know it.




3. Claire Chanelle / I Am Choquette

I am so entertained by Claire Chanelle's Youtube channel at the moment. I think she's adorable and so real and her style is incredible. She's friends with Lydia Elise Millen and they're some of the only Youtubers that I will watch every single video from, no matter what. She does mainly fashion videos, including no shortage of luxury hauls, but she has some beauty aspects to her channel as well. I also really love her vlogs. She just seems like such a kind and chill person and I highly recommend giving her channel a browse if you're looking for some new content!




4. "I Drove All Night" by Johnny Gates and Sammie Zonana from The Voice

I'm back into watching The Voice. I stopped watching when I went to college because it got too hard to keep up with. I ended up watching again in the middle of last season because my roommate was watching it and I got sucked in. So here I am again, watching season 12 and enjoying myself thoroughly. This battle round between Johnny Gates and Sammie Zonana was so good that I couldn't resist sharing my love for it. I bought it on iTunes, I had to. I couldn't resist. It's such a cool rendition of "I Drove All Night," so good that it even impressed Celine Dion, Gwen Stefani's team's mentor for the battle rounds.

What have you been loving lately?
