One of my favorite pastimes is watching beauty vloggers on YouTube. I’ve been following some of my favorite YouTubers since high school, and the videos I always look forward to are monthly favorites, so I’m bringing this series to the blog! This time around I’m sharing my favs in skin care, tech accessories, food recipes, clothing, and music!
SKIN CARE – Korean Sheet Masks
I don’t know what took me so long to hop on the sheet mask bandwagon, but I’m so glad I did because they are AMAZING. They’re sooo soothing on your skin, and after 15 minutes, your face will feel super hydrated, refreshed, and lively. To start out, I got this combo pack from Amazon (a steal at $9 for 16 masks), and it’s been fun trying out all the different types of masks. I keep hearing that the Too Cool for School Egg Cream Mask does wonders so I can’t wait to try them out next.
TECH ACCESSORY – Gold PopSocket
This little nifty gadget has been the best addition to my life. PopSocket describes their invention as an expanding piece of magic for your phone, and they could not be more right! It makes texting, watching videos, and taking selfies (no shame), so much easier. The gold looks very high quality and matches the gold color of my iPhone perfectly. 10/10 would recommend!
RECIPE – Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Maple Syrup
Okay, this recipe has been on repeat in my life. I tend to crave heartier meals in the winter and this dish hits the spot every time. You simply half the brussels sprouts, chop up some bacon, toss it with olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and drizzle with maple syrup. Yes, maple. syrup. It caramelizes the sprouts and the mix between sweet and salty is to die for. I told you it was hearty!
CLOTHING – Steve Madden Shrines Booties
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. These booties are EVERYTHING. I’m so passionate about them (LOL) because they are the answer to my prayers. I’ve been wanting a suede bootie that had boho vibes without all the fringe, and this pair is exactly that. As if that wasn’t enough, they’re currently on sale for as low as $20. No joke. I already have the taupe and black, and it’s taking everything me not to buy the chestnut (3 pairs of the same shoe might be a tad excessive). All of my friends have multiple pairs now because I can’t shut up about what a steal they are, so do yourself a favor and get them! Your life will be forever changed.
MUSIC – Honey by Morningsiders
This song is the perfect balance of folk and pop, and puts me in the best mood. When I’m at work I like to listen to music that’s upbeat, but not no the point where I can’t concentrate because I’m singing all the words (aka all the current top hits), so this song is on repeat all day at my lil cubicle.
