How on earth is it December? I mean, was it not August just yesterday? While the holidays are by far one of my favorite times of the year - it's just a sense of magic and happiness in the air - I also love the feeling of a new year and the feeling of a "fresh start." I've been pretty open about this being a difficult year. I've grown A LOT and learned even more. So I'm anxious to see what a new year will bring. Would you want to see some of the goals I'm making for myself in the new year?

Now, onto the things I'm loving right now!

Living Proof Shampoo + Conditioner

This has CHANGED MY HAIR. I've been one of those people that doesn't stay loyal to shampoo/conditioner. I'll try just about anything. A few months ago, right after I cut my hair, I realized that the texture of my hair was not good. It was so dry and brittle and I knew if I didn't take care of it then, I was going to ruin it. I started doing research on different shampoos, and interestingly enough I read a lot about eliminating shampoo all together. I really only wash my hair 1-2 times a week (normally 1) and not having shampoo would be difficult. There were a few brands that kept popping up, but Living Proof had the promises that I was looking for. It's been almost 2 months, and my hair is so healthy. I will never look back!

Zak! Portable Coffee Mug

I've been using this insulated coffee mug every morning since it was gifted to me by a sweet friend! I absolutely LOVE the lavender color and it stays hot forever. It's cute and good for the environment.

Dr. Scholl's Booties

I'm on my feet 10+ hours a day at work and if I don't have comfy shoes, I'm not in a good mood! It is essential. These shoes have been a total game changer because they allow me to still dress cute, but still be comfy. They have a built in Dr. Scholl's insert and have super warm lining. I have the taupe color and I just ordered a black pair for my Aunt because she loved mine so much! These are great if your job requires you to be on your feet (teachers, I'm looking at you!)

Mrs. Meyers Christmas Cleaning Products

If you love Christmas smells and love cleaning, buy this for yourself! I bought the hand soap, spray, and dish soap in the Christmas scents - Peppermint and Iowa Pine. Trust me, these are heavenly.

My Current Fragrance

If you love feminine, floral smells with a musk undertone you will LOVE THIS. My friend Alexa used this in college and I spotted this in Ulta not long ago. I couldn't help but take it home with me and I get compliments on it daily. Give it a sniff next time you're there and you'll see why!
