Holy cow you guys… it’s already December?! Where did this year go?!! What a year it has been… so many highs and lows but that’s what life is all about, right? We’ll save my reflections for the New Year, that’s not what First Friday Finds are about… let’s get right into my obsessions for December.
I feel like I need to say this for all of these blogs but I just want all of you to know that I am 100% not being paid for talking about any of these products. I truly love them and use them almost always on daily basis.
Sunday Riley Cleansing Balm— I found this at Space NK a few weeks ago and it has changed the way I take off my makeup. With all of the holiday parties this season and the events I have to go to, I need something that melts off my makeup but doesn't irritate my skin. This does just that.
Babor Hydro Gel Eye Pads— Okay, these aren’t new or anything, since I talk about them so much… in fact, I should be sponsored by them by now. Just kidding, but seriously Babor… sponsor me!!!
Probiotic vitamin— We eat so much this time of year that I insist that my family takes a daily probiotic. My husband and I like VSL 3 and Culterelle. While I give my kiddos Ultima Flora’s baby probiotic. I definitely recommend that you incorporate this into your daily routine.
Cappello’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough — Okay, I’m finally giving away my little secret and it’s Cappello’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. They’re grain free, vegan AND gluten-free. It’s my guilty pleasure and makes eating cookies not feel like you’re eating cookies. You can buy them in a bulk of 8 online but I buy mine at Whole Foods because if I buy 8 at a time, I’m 100% going to be eating a pack a week. Sorry about it.
Kate Somerville Goat Milk — After hitting all of the holiday parties and well, drinking … you can see it in my face. I use Kate Somerville’s Goat Milk to help with de-puffing and locking in moisture. If you really need some extra smoothing, my biggest tip is to put it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. You can also throw it in your bag when you’re on the go and layer it on top of your makeup for a quick pick-me-up.
Oeuf Crowns — For this year’s holiday card, I got these crowns for my kiddos and let me tell you, they looked SO adorable! I can’t wait to share this year’s card with all of you! I think that these crowns are so fun and playful for your young kids and it doesn’t hurt that they look pretty freakin’ cute.
Claflin Thayer & Co. Large Lips Bag— Momma love a good makeup bag but I what I love even more is a makeup bag that really pops. It makes it so much easier to find in your big handbag. And I mean… how cute are these lips?! I die.
Charlotte Tilbury Palette — This popped in my email the other day and I immediately thought, “wow, these are ALL of the colors I use everyday, for every season.” It is the go-to palette that you need for any occasion.
Seventh Generation Disinfecting Wipes — These guys are a staple in my home and it’s because they can be used on EVERY surface. It is a great natural disinfectant and it’s eco friendly so you won’t be worried about your kiddos breathing in harsh chemicals.
My 1st Years Santa Robe — A friend of mine sent Grey this for his first Christmas! Can you guys believe that it's been 11 months since my Grey Grey was born? Time seriously flies by. Anyways, we're obsessed with this robe. Brooks stole it from him and chants "ho ho ho" all around the house. So now... I have to get Scarlett and Brooks their own. If my kiddos are obsessed with this robe, yours will be too.
Okay, I had to add these as my *bonus* holiday edition favorite: Sleepy Jones Flannel Pajamas. I pretty much have these in every color and every material. I live in them. They're perfect to give to that someone who loves to lounge around the house, but honestly isn't that all of us?!
What are you guys obsessing over this month? Leave me a comment below and I can't wait to try it.
