Hi! I wanted to share a couple of items that I've been currently loving and using lately! I haven't done one of these posts in a while so I think I'm due for an updated one. I usually only incorporate beauty, but this time around, I'm going to include a couple of fashion, lifestyle, and even food favorites!

So let's get started!

1. Soap & Glory 'Foamous' Body Wash - I came across this body wash by total accident. I typically use body wash only from Bath & Body works because they're my favorite, but one day I ran out of it and decided to try this! I am so glad I discovered it. It has such a pleasant scent; it is of almond, oats and brown sugar mixed together. It's not strong at all and it really foams up on my shower loofa! I have tried other Soap & Glory products & I love this one! I will for sure continue to use and re-purchase. And the best part? It's only $9 (and its always on sale at Target) and it's a very generous bottle size.

2. Loreal Colour riche shine - I've been using these like crazy lately. It's a sheer lipstick that acts like a lip balm (in my opinion) that keeps your lips moisturized and has a light tint of color. This is really good on the days you don't want to wear any obvious lip color, but still want a little color on the lips. I'm obsessed! I have one I always take with me when I'm out. I love the shades 900 (Glossy Fawn) and 906 (Burnished Blush)! Trust me, you need one of these!

3. First Aid Beauty coconut skin smoothie Priming Moisturizer - I was in the market for a new moisturizer because I'm always on the look out for something different to try. I have oily and sensitive skin and this feels amazing on. I've been using it for a couple of months now and I have to say I will stick to this one until forever (or up until I try another one lol). It's very multifuntional in the sense that you could use it as a primer to prep your skin for foundation and as a moisturizer! In my case, I rarely ever wear foundation (just concealer!) so I sometimes wear this alone and add a powder to set it and I'm good to go! The scent is very light and you could barely smell it, it smoothes on great and evenly on your skin too! I have so many good things to say about this product! It's more of a high-end brand but if you are looking for a dual product that works...this one is your go to!

4. Free & Lovely by Bodycology mist spray - OMG, is all I have to say about this spray mist. It smells incredible. I'm a huge fan of anything vanilla or lavender and this is heavenly. I received it in one of the monthly Target beauty boxes and I was instantly hooked. The scent is intoxicating (in a good way) that I spray it all around myself at least five times. LOL. GO and smell this at Target..I know you will think of me ;) Click here for my fav scent

5. St. Ives Cleansing stick (in 'Cactus Water & Hibiscus') - I was kind of skeptical about this product in the beginning because it seemed a little gimmicky, but I was totally wrong! It really refreshes your skin and makes it feel soft and super clean. Its also really easy to use. You first wet your face, then take the stick and apply it all over (it's kind of like a deodarant style stick..but for your face!) the face, then when you apply it, massage it with your fingers until it lathers...I wait around 2-3 mins, and then I wash it all off! It's extremely convinient to have because it's twistable and the lid to close it off is secure so it wont open or spill anywhere. Perfect for on the go or for travel.

6. BBW Fall candles - I love burning candles and the Fall scents are my fav! Here are some of my favorites (that I hoard all year to burn LOL)

Backpacks - I've really been into backpacks lately. It's all I've been carrying and all I want to carry at the moment honestly. They are just super convinient to take almost everywhere and I never have to worry about it being bulky or heavy. This one below is the one I've been using everyday! I also adore medium size crossbodies..which I ordered a Marc jacobs one last week and I'm so excited to get it! I'll share it on here once I receive it :) This is the backpack I've been carrying everywhere (you could also see it above)!

Bodysuits - I've also been really enjoying wearing bodysuits with jeans or shorts lately. They are just easy to throw on and they accentuate my figure nicely. Although it can be challenging to use the restroom at times though, especially if they don't snap off from the bottom LOL...I still love wearing them. This one is my favorite at the moment.

Loved this long sleeved body suit!

Dainty Jewelry - I remember I was a fan of the bold statement jewelry at one point, but nowadays I live in dainty simple jewelry. Initial necklaces, chockers, lariats, things like that! I especially love these because they are great pieces to have to layer and wear together :) / Necklaces pictured are all by Collette & Coco (use code: Estephanie15 for discount!) except the small coin initial necklace which is Kate Spade and you can find it here & the one of my full name is very very old but here is a super similar one

One piece swim - I remember once upon a time when I only wore two piece swim wear..but now, I have come around to appreciate one piece suits way more. I love that they make you feel and look slimmer..and to be honest, they look cuter than a two piece in my opinion! Below is one of my favorite one pieces and its super super affordable. Click here to shop it ! Its $10 and comes in tons of colors!

FOOD -  I've done some major changes in my diet as far as what foods I eat during the week. I am using @GlowMeals (on instagram) prepped food service during the week and I love it! Sure it can be expensive but I feel like it's totally worth the money. Their meals are each $8 and nothing is more satisfying than knowing your meal is already ready for the next day. Having this plan has taught me more about portion control and eating when you are actually hungry, and not when anxiety kicks. My problem was that I would start feeling hungry around 9-10p and I would kill my hunger with sugary cereals. Don't get me wrong I still eat it from time to time but not as often as I use to. Not to mention, it has made me eat more vegetables and greens that I never thought I'd eat before and that it definitely a plus in my book :). I have shed some weight, so its nice to know my effort to eat better is working. LOL.

SHOWS - I am totally obsessing with the show POWER on Starz. It is so good. I'm almost caught up with the current seasona and I cant wait! I'm also currently waiting for the new season of Cable Girls to start! If you haven't watched it, look it'll be hooked!
