Review: My Recent Favorites

Happy Thursday ladies! I wanted to share a few things I've been loving over the past month...from lip gloss to jewelry to tea to bath bombs, the following 9 products have made my favorites list :) Which item below do you like most? What have your recent favorites been?

recent favorites

Tocca 'Florence' 1.7 oz EDP - $68. I own a lot of different perfumes, but I've been reaching for this pretty blend of gardenia, jasmine, tuberose and bergamot almost every day lately. I think it's the perfect summer scent!

The Republic of Tea 'Get Relaxed' Tea - $10.50 for 36 bags. I've been drinking this relaxing lavender & rose tea almost every night before bed. It's the perfect way to unwind and end a long day!

Benefit 'Watt's Up!' Highlighter - $30. I got a sample size of this from Sephora for my birthday last month and I've finally figured out how to wear it best! It's a pretty champagne gold color that I sweep across the tops of my cheeks where the sun would hit them for a nice shimmery glow.

LC Lauren Conrad Maxi Dress - $45. I love the neutral colors and ballet feel of this maxi. It's soft, comfy and easy to dress up or down for the hot summer days!

Jouer Tinted Lip Enhancer in Bellini - $16. I normally put my lip glosses into two categories: pretty or moisturizing. The glosses that have fun colors are normally sticky or leave my lips feeling dry, and the moisturizing ones don't usually have fun colors. This Jouer gloss is able to multi-task by leaving my lips soft & smooth but never sticky while giving me a pretty peachy color. I've been using it daily!

Cosabella 'Never Say Never Sweetie' Bralette - $48. I am obsessed with this gorgeous lacy bra and have purchased it in the dusty rose and black colors. They're not supportive enough for my chest size for me to get away with wearing them to work, but I've been loving them on the weekends and when I'm lounging around. They're as comfy as they are sexy!

House of Harlow 1960 'Sunburst Station' Necklace - $48. I really love star motifs and had been eyeing this necklace for awhile, so I finally bought it for myself and am so glad I did! It's way more sparkly in person and adds a touch of boho charm to my outfits.

Lush Cosmetics 'Twilight' Bath Bomb - $6.25. I'm a big fan of Lush's floral scented bath bombs, but this one may be my new favorite. When you throw it into the tub, it spirals around for about 10 minutes (seriously!), first releasing a pink color and then a blue color, leaving your tub a pretty lavender color at the end. It's really kind of mesmerizing to watch and the smell is super relaxing. There's one more surprise that escapes from the bomb when it's finished up, but I won't ruin it for you! You'll have to try it out yourself!

Henri Bendel 'Peony' 9.4 oz Candle - $30. You all know that peonies are my favorite flower, so naturally I love lighting this peony scented candle in my apartment as well! :)

LC Lauren Conrad Ruffle Throw - $25. I know it's odd for me to have a blanket on my June favorites list, but when the AC is blasting in my apartment, sometimes I get a bit chilly! I love the fun texture of this blanket and it opens up to be big enough to cover my entire body when I lay on the couch. Best of all, it's super soft!


  1. I love trying perfumes, so I will have to check those out! I got the sample size Watts Up for my b-day from Sephora too, but didn't know how to really use it, I will have to give it a try now. Cute dress too!


  2. I looooveeee Watts Up! It's such a good highlighter!

  3. I have to try that tea! Sounds amazing :)

  4. I love this post! The peony candle must smell divine :)I went to Lush last week and got 2 rose jam bubbleroons. I'm itching to use one this weekend!

  5. I love that LC maxi dress, it's so pretty!

  7. I love that we both posted about Lush Bath Bombs today! And...I wear that exact Tocca perfume. I love it. It's not something you see a lot of other people wearing and it smells so good! We obviously have good taste! :)

  8. Love that maxi. I may need to run an errand during lunch now :)

  9. That maxi is absolutely gorgeous, I definitely want to smell that candle too before probably adding it to my collection :)

    1. you must get the candle, it smells amazing! i love their jasmine and lilac candles as well.

  10. I love bralettes- they're so comfortable and perfect for the summer

  11. I may as well have written this list because I'm pretty much loving everything! That dress is gorgeous, I would absolutely die for a peony candle and I've been eyeing up an identical ruffly blanket at a local decor store!
