1 | Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream-Guys, I turn 26 this month, which means I will be closer to 30 than I will be to 20! So I have declared 26 the year I start taking better care of my skin. So I headed to the skincare mecca (Nordstom) with my personal skin care guru (Jordan) and I got about 7 samples of moisturizers. I got a couple from Clinique, Philosophy, Kiehls and Kate Sommerville. I have been testing all of them the last few weeks and my all time favorite was this Kiehl's one. Some of the other ones led to breakouts and were too oily for me. This one is super moisturizing, lightweight, doesn't smell weird and my skin felt great!
2 | Urban Decay Naked Pallet 2 or 3- I have been a loyal mac eye shadow wearer for years but have been wanting to try this super high rated pallet. Beautiful neutral pallet and I have heard it lasts forever!
3 | Nifty Fifty Camera Lens-I have heard rave reviews about this camera lens from every photographer I know. It is inexpensive when it comes to camera lenses and it creates that coveted blurry background effect perfectly!
4 | Real gold XO Earrings-My ears are of the sensitive snobby kind and I can rarely wear earrings without my ears getting infected and sore, unless they are really high quality. I LOVE these catbird 14k gold earrings. You can get them in any letters, I love the XO combo, I think an E and heart would be cute too! I also love these simple gold heart studs for every day!
5 | Morrocan Oil Hairspray-I Love love Morrocan oil serum and have been using it forever (thanks mom) but I had never tried the hairspray until recently when I got a mini sample of it. I am now converted. It smells so so good and has the perfect hold (I tried medium hold) and finish.
6 | Clarisonic-Guys, I turn 26 this month, which means I will be closer to 30 than I will be to 20! So I have declared 26 the year I start taking better care of my skin. The Clarisonic is like a personal spa experience and so good for your skin.
7 | Ban.do bobby pins-These have been on my wishlist the last couple years. I am in a love/hate/it's complicated relationship with my bangs right now so I need these more than ever. I like these cute thin ones and they have wider ones in cute patterns too.
8 | Ban.do iphone case-They just barely came out with iphone 6 cases yesterday and are almost sold out! I love these fun cases by my favorite accessory shop.
9 | Littionary gold bracelets-I lust these dainty gold bracelets that could dress up an outfit or just be casual everyday wear. They are gold filled so they won't tarnish or anything either. BEN HINT HINT
10 | Reversible tote-I love that leather totes are so in right now. These days, I don't really bring the diaper bag everywhere and just want a purse, this would be perfect to just throw a few fruit snacks and wipes in and look so cute. Also it is basically two bags in one, one side is black, the other is cognac (there are more colors available too!)
11 | A Beautiful Mess 2015 Planners-I love planners, Office Depot like gets me in the mood you know? So when these super famous bloggers made a planner I had to have it. Even though I make a lot of lists in my phone, there is still something so satisfying about writing in a planner. I may or may not have already bought this on behalf of Ben for myself. They were selling like hot cakes!
