If Seamless & Savvy was stranded… She’d be in some serious trouble. There are many things I can’t live without, but here are a few essentials that are a must have for my day to day life. Maybe I am just stuck in my ways.. (LOL, say it ain’t so?!) What are your top favorite things? Here are mine:
I am **The seltzer queen** … There is nothing like Polar Seltzer & all of the flavors that come along with it. My favorites include cranberry lime & black cherry. Their marketing techniques are pretty cool too… The last time they released a cool unique flavor and bottle design my mom went crazy and bought about 20 bottles since they were limited edition… The found love comes from my Mom, so if you’re reading Mom… Thanks for the good taste! But.. If you’re thinking of the real good seltzer…. Lets talk about Spiked Seltzer, Truly, or Nauti Seltzers… The best beach drink for around 100 calories… My warning to you if you haven’t learned already: they hit ya reaaaaaal fast & unexpectedly!!!!!
… Don’t judge until you try! They’re very comfortable with some extra cushion to give you an extra pep in your step. The tail of the sock comes up just enough where your sneaker doesn’t rub on the back of your heel… Ouch! I have a bunch of colors as well as white ones. They also indicate right or left foot… Totally necessary. Side note- I have a thing about matching socks… They NEED to match… So when I only have two lefts… Ugh forget about it!
At the beach, taking a shower, school work, cooking (who am I kidding?), background music in general just makes everything better. My mom didn’t know what to get me for a gift one year, and this ended up being something I told her to maybe get. It hooks up by bluetooth and you can connect your music through your iPhone, iPad, anything that has bluetooth. I find myself literally using this everyday and it sure gets major use. Great gift for someone who loves their music!!
(Speak)ing of music… Spotify. Is. A. Must. Seriouslyyyyy! I always bought music off of iTunes because my parents didn’t believe in illegally downloading music (hey LimeWire), and then once that faded I was turned onto Pandora. There is nothing worse than advertisements popping up between songs and limited skips… Even on Spotify. So, each month I pay for Spotify. I get the student discount (WELL NOT FOR LONG!!!) and I pay $4.99 a month for the premium plan with unlimited music and skips. I make my own playlists and follows friends and family. Your followers can also see what you’re listening to. * Thanks Maggie Mcclellan for the shout outs once in a while!! Premium without the student discount is $9.99, and for up to 5 accounts you can get the family plan for $14.99.
Being an instagram enthusiast and following many bloggers… Like to Know it came about in my life very quickly. It is simply a way to shop off of instagram. You sign up via email through your own instagram account. If you ‘like’ the photo that is tagged with Like to Know It, you get sent an email with the photo following the links to shop the look. The new app, allows you to find your likes and screenshots of the posts, and you can conveniently shop even faster! This is dangerous, because what blogger doesn’t look 10/10 on insta? So, yes thats where all of my money goes…
This wallet includes so much space & allows for a lot of organization. This is one of my favorites since my wallet is always so heavy & full… & not of $$ (LOL)! So many pockets for various cards, two cash spots, and a change pocket. In all honesty, since this wallet is such a good size, I carry it around solo far too often, as well as sticking way too many receipts in it. The colors available are indescribable and it will be so hard to pick your next one.
Pale & tired? LOL okay yes thats sometimes ME! I feel like I’ve gone through many different brands of concealers and I have finally found the right one. So, I want to inform those in need! I use the matte finish, in the color Fair. It looks like a lip gloss tube, and it paints on nicely because of the swab it has, you get much coverage in one swoop! I love it because overs all the unwanted dark circles, and brightens up your eyes.
I got this as part of my birthday gift from my aunt, and I am hooked. I always knew about these water bottles but I didn’t realize how cool they actually were. First off, they’re are so many different colors and patterns to match your style, its so hard not to want one! My aunt bought a me textile collection one, and it was hand painted… LOVE! I bring it with me everyday to class & work. As long as I screw the cap back on, my water is still cold all throughout the day. I should probably drink more water if I can say that it stays cold for that long, but we all have those days! Either way, you’re doing your part in saving the world by reusing, isn’t that enough?
Available at Ulta, or online… I found this brand 3 years ago, and I am never going back. I use all of the facial products, but the moisturizer really seems to stick out to me. I use a morning and evening one. Apparently, the evening one is stronger and is made to be used alone. There are various kinds of products to relate to the type of skin. The one I use makes my face feel like it can actually breathe and it gives SO much hydration… Especially this time of year it so SO needed.
Talk about squeaky clean! My sister and I both got these electric tooth brushes for christmas one year (what a gift, huh?) and honestly it’s the best TBH! You just simply re-charge about once a week and the power just cleans away! There are different heads you can clip on depending on what type of clean you want. I currently am using a flossing head and it really gets in all over! If you don’t have an electric tooth brush… I highly recommend one!!
Love a coffee maker, and this is just perfect for the on-the-go person. Although one cup doesn’t always do the trick… Weekdays, the coffee maker is perfect. You simply make & go! Well, for my case… Mom gets another shout out!!! She makes my coffee before she leaves for work & puts it in my to-go cup and its hot for hours!! Drinking coffee in the morning only seems right, so if its your thing and you don’t actually have a Keurig, you’re really late to the coffee game, and you simply should get one.
What are your favorite things?
