favorites of 2019

Not only did this past year lead me to some great memories and experiences, but also lead me to open my wallet to make some great purchases!! Clearly, being in college and working like a lunatic during the little breaks that I during the semester doesn't give me the financially freedom to spend my income on outfits just to post for my instagram lol. Getting older and having to budget i'm quickly learning the principle that less is more! Sure, some things are worth splurging into now and then, but even then my new frugal outlook is wanting to see if I could ever get that special item on sale. 

With that being said, I thought I would round up my favorite products from 2019 that, dare I say, I can't live with out! Shop each item in the descriptions i've provided below!

Ring: I'm already on my second one because I wear this rainbow statement ring all the time, even with it looking kinda crusty, I always get complements on it! Not to mention, it's now on sale for only $12! Time to stock up on one of my favorite accessories!

Slip pillow case: I've legit been dreaming of owning one of these bad boys for god knows how long already. This Christmas, my dreams of wanting a slip pillow case finally came true when I unboxed my very own navy pillow case! Celebrities, beauty experts, and myself highly endorse this luxurious little pillow case. It may seem a bit frivolous, but this pillowcase is key for great skin, hair and sleep. Don't believe me? Read some of their reviews! Pssst, I've also found one on sale here.

AirPods: All I can say is....  can someone lemme know how did I function before AirPods?! P.S. they are currently on sale!

Hydroflask: After legit trying a S'well, Yeti, Arctic, every insulated drink container out there, Hydroflask truly lives up to all the hype it gets. Fits tons of ice and keeps your drinks cold, not to mention, the easy to cary handle makes this clunky water-bottle more easily to carry around wherever you may go.

It's a 10: My holy grail haircare product. This product tackles every issue that your hair could possibly face with the bonus of smelling INCREDIBLE!

Sherpa Pullover: I'm not even being dramatic when I say I live in this pullover. From traveling, to wearing it to class, running errands, staying at home, etc. I always find myself wearing this jacket. It feels like your constantly bundled in the coziest blanket and i'm not too sure what could be better than that.

Foundation: This $6 drugstore foundation provides me with full coverage, doesn't feel heavy, and makes my skin GLOW! Legit better than any expensive foundations i've tried In the past. This stuff does wonders..... *chef kiss*

Amazon Echo: I have developed this new routine in the mornings that I carve out some "me time" by making a nice breakfast for myself and listing to jazz music to ease me into the day. I swear i'm 20 going on 57. Thanks to my Alexa, the convince of yelling at her to crank up the Frank Sinatra makes me sort of happy to be living in this era of technology. Oh, also it's under $60.

Blowout Brush: Okay, to be honest, this is my sisters, buuuuut I have used it a few times and I don't know why I haven't already gotten it for myself. If your a girl like me with ungodly amount of thick hair, blowdrying your hair is a real pain in the you know what. This blow dry brush eliminates half of the struggle of doing your hair and making it look as if you just went to the drybar!

my goals for 2020!

Happy 2020 everyone!! It may be 6 days late but hey, it's still the same sentiment! I guess I should add becoming more punctually about my post to my resolutions list haha. Anyways, after spending some time concocting my “goals” for 2020, I couldn’t help but recognize all the completely unrealistic ones I set for myself last year, which you can check out right here

Sure, some were mixed in that I attempted to get at but I never got up at 4am and to be completely honest, that just sounds completely criminal. Regardless, I’ve definitely become more of a morning person within the past year but I clearly did really get close to the resolutions only a nut job would set. This year, Instead of creating these loony resolutions like i did last year, I thought I’d create goals for myself that I find my self either struggling/lacking in any way shaped or form. The list is down below, feel free to read up on it. I hope this year is one of the best yet, the best is always yet to come afterall! 


1. Only apologize when necessary... like Jillian u really gotta stop over apologizing for everything 

2. Be kind to yourself and be mindful of how you talk to yourself 

3. Do yoga! 

4. Read more.. finish at least 5 books

5. Say yes to every opportunity that is presented to me, you’ll regret it in the long run

6. Get stuff done the day of instead of just “leaving it for the morning” and acting like a crazy person to complete it 

7. Go to the beach more!
