Little Luxuries to #TREATYOSELF

Hi guys!

Hope you’re enjoying these first few bits of autumn if you live in the nothern hemisphere! I wanted to make a little list of a few of my recent obsessions, it’s a mix of home goods, jewelry, luxury, & beauty.

Prism Serum by Herbivore $62

Whenever Edgar & I go back to the US, I always have to stock up on my favorite Herbivore Botanicals products. This new serum is an exfoliating serum made with all natural ingredients, it’ll leave your skin feeling soft, moisturized, and a radiant glow. If you follow the Korean 10 step skin care, you can use this little guy for number 6. Check out Herbivore’s website for their other amazing products!

70g candle from Diptyque 28

I’ve been itching to get a Diptyque candle for some time now, but I held off because of the higher price tag. I purchased the mini 70g candle just to try out, it only cost 28€. You might think that’s a lot of money for a tiny little candle, but the perfume in these guys are heavenly. On their site, they say that the mini candle will burn for 30 hours.

Essie Gel Couture in Sheer Fantasy $11.50

I’ve been trying to get more consistent with my beauty routine look, now that I’m married and have two rings I feel that my hands have become more noticeable. For the past few years, I’ve been trying to find the perfect sheer nude, and this color is S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G! I only use this now and refuse to go into a nail shop to get them done. I even painted my own nails for my wedding using this color. The gel couture only lasts about one week or so before chipping, so I make a habit of painting my nails every Wednesday to look good for the end of the work week and weekend.

White Tea by Alain Ducasse at Kusmi Tea. 120g refill bag 26

I’ve never been a huge tea person, and when I do drink tea I ususally prefer green. But when I tasted this tea, I was in love. It’s a white tea with traces of rose and raspberry. There are suprisngly lots of benefits to drinking white tea, it’s high in anti-oxidents, helps lower the risk of insulin resistence, helps prevent skin from internal and external aging, has anti-cancer effects. I should really drink this tea more often, but I like to savor it for a special cup. I bought the 120g refill bag, but the tin that it comes with is to die for.

Luminous Silk Foundation 50

Normally I buy most of my makeup at the drugstore, just because I don’t usually see a giant difference in quality  between luxury mascaras and the ones from maybelline. But I had noticed that my skin had been looking quite dry with the NYX stay matte not flat, so I wanted to try something new and amazing. The Armani luminous silk foundation is such a cult favorite, and now I understand. My skin feels amazing when I put this on, it feels so soft and looks like real skin. It melts into my skin and looks so natural. I dont get oily, so it doesn’t look greasy on me, even at the end of the day. I don’t think I can ever go back to another foundation after trying this one. Worth every penny.

Prada Card Holder 180

If you’re in to SLGS (small leather goods), then you’ll love this little card holder. I have certain brands where I prefer their wallets over their handbags and Prada is one of them. I love that when I don’t want to take a purse I can just put this little guy in my pocket, or if you’re using a small clutch this is the perfect size to throw your cards, cash, and ID. It comes in so many fun colors, and it doesn’t break the bank if you’re into luxury goods.

Astrological Necklace from Lou Yetu 55

We’ve entered October but it still isn’t scorpio season yet, but I absolutely love this little astrological necklace! I love the dotted chain and the pendant, it’s very subtle, so from far away people can’t see what it says. If you’re into horoscopes as well you can get your astroglical sign at Lou Yetu in Paris 3éme or online. To go into their store you’ll need a reservation!


 

What are some of your fall favorites?
