Loving Lately

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend. I missed my Sunday “loving lately” post yesterday because I was in Charleston looking at wedding venues for my cousin, Claire! We had the best time and she even introduced me to one of the products that I am loving lately.

1.) Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty / $30. I forgot my moisturizer on our trip so I borrowed Claire’s Ultra Repair Cream. It made my skin feel amazing and fresh, AND my make up went on so smoothly. This product is great for this time of year when your face is dehydrated and needs some extra love. I have used Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for years and will continue to, but I am adding in the Ultra Repair Cream for when my face needs that TLC.

2.) Coconut Milk Mango Reed Diffuser from Anthropologie / $26. I have this in the master bathroom and it smells amazing. I bought it because it’s so pretty, and now I am obsessed with the smell! I want to get another one for the guest bath as well.

3.) Tulisa Bootie by Steve Madden / $35. I have been looking for an open toed bootie like this for a while! I love the version by Kristin Cavallari, but I wasn’t willing to splurge on those ($149). These Tulisa booties are so cute and look so expensive!! I swear they look like they were at least triple the price. And they shipped for free! I will wear these with jeans, dresses, skirts, and even cut off shorts. They are a great transitional piece and super comfy.

4.) Pond’s MoistureClean Towelettes / $14. Some of you were following me when I tried the Neutrogena face cleanser wipes… and they broke out my face SO. BAD. Since I have always used Pond’s Cold Cleanser and haven’t had any issues, I decided to try their face towelettes. They work wonders!! So gentle, removes your make up, and they don’t have a strong scent! I always use my Kiehl’s Facial Cleanser ($20) after to make sure everything is off my face. I would definitely recommend giving these towelettes a try!

5.) Basket Heart Sneakers by PUMA / $65. I am so excited to bring these back out! I have a very similar pair with blue dots. They are so cute and anytime I wear them, I get so many compliments and questions about where they are from. The big ribbon is so fun! But they also come with another shoe lace if you don’t like the big silky ribbon. I will forever love my Adidas Superstar sneakers, but these basket hearts by PUMA are an option that you don’t see every day!

Alright, that’s all I have today!! Let me know what your favs are! Xoxo, Olivia

Loving Lately

Hi guys!! Hope you had a GREAT weekend!! For the last few Sundays I have been telling y’all 3 things I am obsessed with through my Instagram. I’m sharing these things on a blog post so that you can find the links easier! Yesterday was a little crazy with the big game, so I’m doing it today instead :)

SO…. Here are 3 things I have been crushing on lately.

*Click text links or pictures for product info!*

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation / $50. I have been using this foundation for about a year. I used to swear by Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, but they changed the formula and it’s just not as good as it used to be! I love my Bobbi Brown foundation because it is so natural and goes on my skin smooth and easily. It is not heavy at ALL, but still gives great coverage. I use color “Natural”- and I LOVE how many different shades this comes in- there really is a shade for everyone.

Jergens Natural Glow + Firming Daily Moisturizer / $10. I love this self tanner!! It is that time of the year where I am at my palest… and I hate it! I have been using this self tanner lately and I’m really impressed with the gradual/natural color it gives. And it is such a great price!

Lulu & Georgia Pali Rug / $310. I can’t even tell you how many times I get asked about this Lulu & Georgia rug!! I have it layered in my living room over this similar braided jute rug. The Pali rug is so beautiful and such a great price for the quality! Definitely one of my favorite pieces in my home.

My Fall Essentials

Happy November, everyone! November is one of my favorite months of the year. I love the cooler weather, the sweaters, the candles, the tea, and of course being able to have our fireplace on almost 24/7. I love everything about being cuddled up and cozy. So, I thought I would share some of my fall essentials with you. *Click the links or photos to go to product page!*

First up is this amazing packable puffer jacket by BCBGeneration. It is super lightweight so it’s great for fall, but it keeps me warm through the winter months as well. It is also great for traveling because it hardly takes up any space!  I have the olive green color and get so many compliments on it.

This scarf is seriously THE BEST! I have it in several colors. My mom and sister both have it in tons of colors too- we are obsessed! They are super warm and very high quality- I’m honestly shocked that they are on sale for $18 right now. These scarves also make great Christmas gifts!!

I love curling up with this lemon herbal tea in the afternoon. I am such a coffee girl, but lately I have been limiting myself to one cup per day.  So I love to have this tea in the afternoon- not only is it delicious but hot lemon tea is SO good for you!

My face needs some extra love to keep it nice and hydrated in the fall and winter. I have been using this Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream for years. I love the glam little pot it comes in, and it lasts me the whole season! I would definitely try this if your skin tends to get dry in the colder months.

These are the pajamas I am wearing in the picture at the top of the page! They are so comfortable and not TOO thick. Fall in the Carolinas is not quite cold enough for those flannel PJs just yet ;) Pajamas that are too short are the opposite of cozy, so I love that these are available in long sizes. I order a size Small Long. I also ordered these for my bestie Sabrina last year! They make great gifts!

I love wearing these slippers around the house! They are key for the colder months while lounging around the house to avoid those ice cold floors- and they are ADORABLE. At only $20 + 30% off they are a must have! These are another great gift option :)

Last but not least, I have to have a yummy candle in each room of the house. This candle is my favorite one for fall! It makes the whole house smell amazing, even when it’s not lit (which helps justify the $18 price tag)! I will share the best Christmas candle when we get a little closer to the holidays :)

What are your fall essentials? I love any tips on how to stay super cozy and festive! Let me know in the comments! Xoxo Olivia

Crushing: For my Closet

1. Free People Overalls : I have been looking for a pair of denim overalls for what feels like 25 years. I’m only 19, so that math could be a little wrong. These darling overalls aren’t denim, but they ARE so stinkin’ cute. I can see myself wearing these to holiday functions, girly dinners, and around campus. That makes these little suckers a win, ladies and gentlemen.

2. The Cambridge Satchel Company : I saw this little neon guy all over NYC a few weeks ago. It’s also making its way around Pinterest, so watch out people!

3. Steve Madden Sneaks : The wedge sneaker is one of my favorite fall trends. When I first saw them, I couldn’t get terrifying images of stiletto Timberlands out of my head. But then, I fell in love. Isn’t that the way it goes?

4. Asos Mistletoe Sweater : This festive number caught my eye at first glance. It is so adorable, I could almost kiss it.

What are you currently crushing on?
