i’m pretty classic when it comes to my everyday style. not to say that i don’t get suckered into the trendy, because god knows that would be a lie. but for the most part, i tend to stick with what works. i consider it a blessing to finally be able to recognize what silhouettes are going to flatter my shape, what products aren’t going to freak my sensitive skin out, and what i’m going to be able to have around for years without tiring of it.
if this post doesn’t make me sound like a real live adult, i don’t know what will. without further ado, the items that make an appearance on the regular these days:
1 / le pens – i’m a left-handed gal, so i’m the pickiest when it comes to good writing utensils. any pen that smudges is no friend of mine. le pens dry super fast and come in the most fun colors.
2 / iphone5 – i’d never had an iphone until a few months ago and now that i have one i know i will never be able to go back to anything else. i use it for everything. my favorite apps right now are wunderlist, afterglow, spotify and of course, instagram!
3 / j.crew minnie – these are, by far, my favorite pair of pants i’ve ever put on my body. they’re so comfortable and can be dressed up for work or worn on a casual brunch date with the girls. the minnies are so good i own three pairs of them!
4 / covergirl lastblast mascara – mascara is the one item of makeup i usually put on if i’m in a hurry to get somewhere and need a quick way to look like i tried. i’ve tested a lot of the more expensive brands and i just keep coming back to this one. it’s a keeper.
5 / ray-ban wayfarers – they’re classic and iconic. who wouldn’t want to wear the same shades as ms. monroe? mine are prescription, so the fact that they help me see is also a plus.
6 / matrix vavoom freezing spray – i want to make out with this hairspray. it’s that good – trust me. i have the thickest of manes and it takes a lot to keep any kind of volume throughout the day. i would consider myself somewhat of a hairspray connoisseur and vavoom is the best of the best. and it smells good!
7 / starbucks blonde roast – i’m a huge fan of coffee and i love grabbing a cup at some of the local cafes in kansas city, but when i’m in a hurry the blonde roast is what i like to brew at home. i also carry vanilla liquid stevia in my purse pretty much everywhere i go (weird?). hello, instant vanilla latte!
8 / opi you don’t know jacque – i paint my nails once or twice a week. excessive? maybe. i love trying now polish colors and brands, but this one has been a staple of mine for years.
9 / coconut oil – have you ever scrambled eggs in this stuff? so. good. the awesome thing about coconut oil is that it’s natural and extremely versatile. i use for baking with, to remove my makeup at night and as chapstick during the day. how ’bout that? if you need any more reasons to grab yourself a jar, check out glitter guide’s post on even more uses for coconut oil.
