Let me start off this post by stating the obvious: It has been so long since I’ve posted a good old fashioned outfit post. Between moving out of my apartment, our recent trip to Gainesville and non-stop wedding planning, outfit shoots never seem to get checked off the to-do list.
I finally have one scheduled for this week, so if you’ve been missing those, hang tight! In the meantime, I thought it might be fun to switch things up today and share 9 random things I’m currently loving. I love reading these type of posts, and I hope you enjoy this list!
After you’ve made it through the list, feel free to add a few favorites of your own as well! I always love new recommendations. Now, let’s get to the fun stuff!
O N E // Nut Butter Chocolate Peanut Butter
No joke, I eat at least one of these little packets every single day! I’ve tried so many flavors of the RX Nut Butter, but this one is by far the most incredible. It almost tastes like a Reese’s! Plus, just 3 grams of sugar. Trust me and go get yourself one!
T W O // Vital Protein Collagen Peptides
I kid you not, within 3 days I noticed a huge difference! My skin felt way softer and more clear than usual. I told my friend Hayley about it, she went and bought some and noticed the same thing! So if you haven’t jumped on the band wagon yet, join us!
P.S. I just use one scoop in my coffee every morning. You can’t taste it at all!
T H R E E // Platform Sneakers
I’ve mentioned these a time or two over the past few weeks because I cannot stop wearing these platform sneakers! I own them in the camel color, and they seriously go with everything. They’re unbelievably comfortable (enough-so for 3 days of non-stop house hunting), so versatile and so cute!
My bible study of high school freshmen girls even complimented them, which made me feel especially in-the-know. :) Speaking of, they’re seriously perfect for any age, from high school to mamas! My mom is dying for a pair in grey. I’m ordering them in white now, and here are the socks I wear with them!
F O U R // Interior Designer Instagrams
Now that Andrew and I are almost homeowners (Eek! Still doesn’t feel real!) I have taken interior designer stalking to a whole new level. Two of my very favorites? Collins Interiors (Instagram here) who is a local designer here in Dallas and Katherine Bramlett (Instagram here) who is located in Birmingham, Alabama. Fun fact, Katherine is the sister of one of my dear friends Caroline… you’ll LOVE her blog. Check it out here!
While I think that realistically we’ll be repurposing my IKEA apartment furniture for a few years to come, I can’t stop dreaming up different design ideas. This scalloped light, for example, would be perfect for the breakfast area. Do leave all of your interior design favorites below!
F I V E // Aerobic Dance Classes
If you follow along on my Instagram Stories, you may have seen me post about the almost life-changing experience I had at a YMCA dance class last week! (Haha!) Y’all… it was SO fun! Everyone was just giving it their all, no one cared about what they looked like, and I ended up burning over 400 calories in one hour. Um… what!
I had so much fun, in fact, that I’ve been re-thinking my whole workout mentality. Working out can and should be fun! So now I’m on the search for more dance fitness classes. I’ve heard amazing things about 305 Fitness and High Fitness, but sadly neither have locations near me. If you have any other favorites, especially local to central-Dallas, I’d love to know!
S I X // Self Tanner
I feel like such a dork for posting this, but why am I so quick to forget the magic of
I’ve also been hearing great things about Fake Bake and St. Moriz. Any others I should know about?!
S E V E N // The Perfect Pink Polish
I have officially turned into “that girl”… the one who has a go-to nail polish she rarely deviates from. For the past couple of years I’ve tried every gel under the sun in hopes of finding a perfect match for the “Fiji” color by Essie to no avail.
So before Valentine’s day this year, I decided to do something a little different and opted for “Lima Tell You About This Color” by OPI in
E I G H T // Countdown Calendar
Y’all… JUNE IS ALMOST 3 MONTHS AWAY! I legitimately cannot even believe it. The wedding is going to be here in no time!
In preparation, I decided to buy this adorable “Last 100 Days” countdown calendar on Amazon. I have it on my desk and can’t wait to start using it! It’s such a cute idea for any countdown you have in your life. I’ll share it on Instagram Stories today!
N I N E // Olaplex Hair Perfector
The Sephora check-out line lured me in yet again a month or two ago, and I ended up picking up this hair serum on the way out! I had just seen it on an Instagram story, and thought I’d give it a shot.
Y’all.. the hype is true! This thing works wonders. I try to use it at least once a week. My hair feels silky-smooth and shiny afterwards. But don’t take my word for it… check out all the amazing reviews, too!
There ya have it, friends! A few favorites I’ve been loving lately. I’m now in search of an amazing facialist in Dallas, as well as a place to get eyelash extensions! I’ve never had either, and am wanting to get “wedding ready.” Any recommendations? If I find ones I love I’ll be sure to include them in a future “loving lately” list!
Love from Texas,
