My Current Favorite Things!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I thought I would do something different and share my current favorite things with you. I can’t decide if I should make this a series and share my favorite things with you weekly or monthly. What do you think? My favorite things will probably vary from beauty products, household items, foods, etc. Until I figure out what I plan on doing, check out what I have featured below!

Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm
This lip balm is by far one of the most moisturizing and long lasting products I’ve ever used! I love Burt’s Bees lip balms and tried a few different ones but I find that the pomegranate formula keeps my dry lips moisturized the longest.

Carol’s Daughter Monoi Shampoo & Conditioner
I love the scent of this shampoo and conditioner! Not only does it have a nice floral scent, but it also does wonders for my hair! I have colored my hair several times throughout the years, which has caused it to become damaged and brittle. This shampoo and conditioner by Carol’s Daughter makes my hair very soft and I’ve noticed less breakage. Best of all, it is sulfate-free!

simple micellar
Simple Micellar Cleansing Water
What I love about this cleanser is that it is so gentle on my skin. It wipes away dirt and unclogs my pores, which is great for my oily skin. It doesn’t irritate my skin like some cleansers do, nor does it leave it feeling stripped.

BrainGames App
I have become addicted to BrainGames! It is a fun game where you connect letters to spell out words. You need to spell one hundred words to finish each game. There’s also a numbers version but I don’t enjoy it as much. This game is a great way to exercise your brain! If you know any other brain exercise games that you recommend, please share them with me!

Walks at the Park
If you follow me on snapchat (username: gemsandjoy) then you may have noticed that I like to go to the park a lot. Gabriel loves it when I take him outside to enjoy some fresh air and soak in some sunshine. The weather in Seattle has been spectacular lately, however, we are due for some rain this weekend! Bummer!

Well, that wraps up my favorite things at the moment! Feel free to share some of your favorite things with me. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Walks in the parks are the best, specially on a beautiful sunny day!
