Loving Lately: 4 Recent Favs

Don’t count the days, make the days count

-Muhammad Ali

Hi everyone! Welcome to May, & summer?!  Anyone else?!

I had to participate in an outdoor sand Volleyball tournament last Friday & almost melted to my death.  Of course it was the hottest day we’ve had so far at 90 degrees.  I couldn’t drink enough water to keep myself hydrated & went home with a huge headache Friday.   On the plus side, 1 of the 4 games was a personal success in my book.  The other 3 had a few errors that I’m choosing to ignore.  I’m very competitive so I hate sucking at things.


Lately, I have a few new favorites I’ve happily stumbled upon, so lets share!



Nude Gel Polish:

I’m a nail bitter so I have to have my nails done or I’ll constantly be messing with them.  I love hot pinks, blue, purples, white, or really any color nail.

I have no fear when it comes to nail color.  I typically keep them really short because I’ve always thought they look better that way, until recently.  I decided not to cut my nails the last time I went for a manicure & tried a very nude color, so the length wouldn’t be obvious.

I’m obsessed.  I didn’t think nude would work for me… because I’m bright. But it does!  Classy, clean, easy, goes with everything.

I chose “Bubble Bath” Gel from Opi, ask for it next time you go!


Victoria’s Secret Knockout Sport Tights:

I know I already shared my love for VS’s sports bra’s but I’ve also been loving their tights which deserves attention too.  Again, not as expensive as other brands & in my opinion they’re better.  Breathable, move with you as you work out, high wasted, comfortable, and I’m loving the styles.  Every time I VS tights to workout someone asks where I got them.  All those Lululemon & Aloyoga people don’t know what hit them when I say Victoria’s Secret.  Also, they aren’t as thick & hot as true Yoga pants from those other brands are.

And trust me – NOT see-through.  I do several squats in a variety of lighting scenarios and I make Wafiq approve the see-through strength prior to any pants being worn in public.  We’ve seen one too many ass cracks in our workouts to take any chances.


Kygo Station on Pandora:

The perfect music station for summer!  I have this station going all, the, time.  Of course with intermediate breaks for the Jazz station but Kygo has me going.

I’m having a party MondayFriday in my earphones & I’m pretty happy about it.  The perfect music to get yourself in the summer ready mood!  I also happened to see Kygo at Austin City Music Festival last year & I loved it.  Anything to get people moving & feeling is right up my ally.


Kylie Cosmetics Lip Gloss: 

I love lip glosses but don’t love most lip gloss products.   I can’t find any that I like!  Kylie’s glosses are good you guys, really good. I know it’s hard to support & believe in a millionaire 19 year old’s cosmetic business, but that’s life.

If you empty my purse at any time you’ll find “Damn Gina” gloss inside, but I know all of her glosses are really good.  Super shiny & they DO stay put longer than many others. Also, not nearly as expensive as other brands.  My favorite look is huge sunglasses, oil on my face, and gloss on my lips. That’s it! OH! And a spray tan… Of course.



Besides my regular favorites, the above are a few I’ve added to the list.

Anyone have favorites to share?

I realized I don’t have very many beauty products lately as I’ve cut WAY down on wearing makeup.  Even the weekends can be pretty bare.  When it’s so hot, everything melts off your face anyway – sunscreen turns into the only option.

Everyone, have a great rest of the week & be thoughtful!
