MY EVERYDAY ESSENTIALS + MARBLE CAKE STAND
I had to share this great find with you guys. I frequent stores like Home Goods, TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby. I love browsing and always check out the clearance section. I saw this gorgeous marble and gold cake stand and instantly fell in love with it. It is so heavy and well made. I love that it is made of genuine marble. The original price was $60, and I was lucky enough to get it on clearance for only $12! This is a piece that could be used many different ways. Of course you could be traditional and use it in the kitchen, but I decided to use it to display my most used products on my bathroom vanity. Personally I don’t like having a ton of things out all over the counter, but think this is a really pretty way to tastefully display your most reached for items.
I found this milk bath at TJ Maxx, and I have to say the packaging sold me. It is really classic and I love the old fashioned look of the bottle, and the little cow. My strawberry lotion from The Body Shop is a must have, and I usually get this from TJ Maxx as well. I also displayed some of my new Victoria’s Secret body sprays. These are old favorites of mine that I continue to repurchase. I bought Bobbi Brown Beach right before my wedding and honeymoon, so I will forever love this scent and the memories it brings back. I stopped using it for a few months over the winter, and I’m so excited to start using it again soon! I will do a more in depth post on my skincare routine soon, but I like to keep it simple and stick to just a few products. I have been using this amazing Doll Face mask that I was sent, and it has quickly become my favorite mask. It is a charcoal mask, which I love, and every time I use it I can actually see a difference. Mario Bedescu drying lotion is essential for those annoying little pimples that pop up. You just use q-tip and dab it on, and it helps speed up the healing and fading process by drying it out. This Estee Lauder cream is great for smoothing fine lines. Another new favorite that I have been using every day is my Lip Sense lip moisturizer. I am super picky when it comes to lip products, and this formula is seriously amazing. It provides great moisture and makes your lips nice and smooth and plump, therefore making lipsticks and glosses look way better on! I especially love to use it before I apply a matte lip product. I keep one in my nightstand too, and have been applying it every night before bed. This is one of the only lip balms I have tried that really works!
