“For You” by Rita Ora and Liam Payne – Okay, normally I wouldn’t ever support Becky with the good hair but THIS SONG IS FIRE. I’ve had it on replay for the past week and it gets me so pumped up for rest of the Fifty Shades soundtrack.
Elizabeth and James Suede Fringe Pouch in Ochre – I came across THIS BAG on Pinterest last year and have been searching for a much more affordable dupe ever since. I did find the brown version at Nordstrom Rack but at $209.00, I wasn’t ready to settle yet. I finally came across a NWT listing on Poshmark and didn’t even want to risk it – I bought it right away. I will say, it is a little more yellow than I expected, but getting it 80% off and the buttery suede texture makes up for it. My little gypsy heart is beyond happy.
Motivational YouTube Videos – Instead of listening to my usual Spotify daily mix, I’ve been playing motivational speeches and panels, such as Jessica Alba at Create and Cultivate 2016 and Traci Ellis Ross at the Glamour Women of the Year event. As my Etsy business evolves and I come up with new ideas, it’s really inspiring to listen to smart, educated women on how they’ve carved their own paths on their own terms.
La Roche Posay Double Repair SPF 30 Moisturizer – This is the only “drugstore” moisturizer/sunscreen I’ve found that doesn’t dry my face out or leave me with glowing like a friendly ghost with a white cast. Elta MD is also another great brand for sensitive skin types if you’re willing to spend a little more.
Bayou With Love x Dell Jewelry – Not only is Nikki Reed one of my favorite actresses/activists, but she also is now the designer of one of my new favorite jewelry lines. Her company, Bayou With Love, recently partnered with Dell to make unique 14k and 18k gold jewelry pieces with recycled computer parts. I love how simple and affordable these pieces are, as well as the positive impact they have on the environment.
