“Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon | I’ve had a few people recommend this series to me, but it wasn’t until my mother received the first book for Christmas that I decided to pick it up. Despite the length of the book (nearly 900 pages!), I devoured it and immediately ordered the second book from Amazon. The books have also been made into a TV show which is available on Netflix. Each season corresponds to each book so Jordan and I just finished watching the first season. Can we just talk about how Sam Heughan is the perfect actor for the character of Jamie? I’m eagerly working my way through the second novel now so that we can watch season two.
Flamingo Coffee Mug | I walked away from this mug a couple of times because I kept telling myself that I didn’t need yet another mug until finally I bit the bullet and bought it. I’m a self-proclaimed mug collector and the flamingos as well as the pink and green colors of this one makes it perfect for spring.
Espresso Maker | We spent a long time debating an espresso machine and in fact, I nearly bought a Nespresso at Winners a couple weeks ago. After a lot of back and forth, we hopped on Amazon and purchased this one. We figured it would be a good starter machine and the reviews were excellent. Thus far, we have been really pleased with our decision! My waist line may regret it though, as we’ve been making lattes every day since this arrived.
Bonavista Coffee Company | After ordering the espresso machine, we had to pick up some espresso beans. Because I love supporting local and also because this packaging is to die for, I chose these from the Bonavista Coffee Company. To be honest, I can’t really compare the taste to anything else as I’ve never tried any other espresso beans but I would absolutely purchase these again.
Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask | Prior to receiving my new skincare order from the Sephora VIB Sale, I was using this mask nearly every night. While the instructions state to rinse this mask off after 5-10 minutes, I was using it as a sleeping mask. My skin was quite dry at the time and this left it feeling moisturized and plump in the morning, without any greasy residue. For the price, I highly recommend this one! It smells super yummy too.
Revlon Colorstay Brow Kit * | I was surprised by this product as I’ve never used a wax/powder brow product before. It seemed cumbersome and time-consuming but it has since become my go-to! It’s actually quite easy to use and doesn’t take any longer than any other brow product. I love how the brush creates a sharp edge while still creating a natural-looking brow. The color match is pretty decent for blonde hair too! A lot of brow products tend to be really warm but this is a nice, natural blonde.
Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Filter Foundation * | I added this one to the list because I love the formula but I have to be honest and say that I hate the packaging. Revlon kindly sent me a few different colors so this isn’t the exact one that I am using because mine has the sponge-tipped applicator ripped off. I’m not sure why but the twist-pump action didn’t work so the only way I can get the product out is to shake it out on to my beauty blender. However, the formula and color match is great! Honestly, it wears better than my high-end foundation. It provides medium-full coverage and lasts pretty well through a 12-hour shift. I just wish they would change it to a pump dispenser!
Physician’s Formula Butter Highlighter in “Rose Gold”| As a huge fan of the Butter Bronzer, I was so excited to get my hands on the Butter Highlighter. Unfortunately, this shade is way too dark to be used as a highlighter on my pale skin. Instead, I’ve been using it for an easy eye look! It blends out seamlessly and provides a gorgeous gold wash of color on the lid.
