Things I’m Loving Lately

You all know how I love to share news about things I’ve tried, so I thought I’d give you a quick update on a few things I’ve been dabbling playing with lately.

Amazon leggings

Amazon Leggings: I’ve taken up going back to hot yoga again and my quarantine leggings needed a refresh. I saw one of my favorite bloggers give these Amazon leggings a shoutout and I decided to give them a try. While they’re not as perfect as the lululemon Align leggings (the best leggings ever!!), they are really good–and about a quarter of the price. They run true to size. I ordered a M from Amazon (which equals a size 8 in the lululemon Align leggings) and they washed very well. I will definitely buy these in a few more colors.

Prose Shampoo

Prose: Last month, I confessed to succumbing to some heavy duty Instagram marketing and bought these custom haircare products from Prose (for a little more back story, click here). I absolutely love them! The shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask are amazing and the customer service for this brand is outstanding. When I went to re-order, I made a mistake in how I loaded my cart. I only wanted to get the shampoo and conditioner, but somehow managed to mess this up. Prose reached out to me to make sure the order looked right. Once corrected, they not only shipped the correct product, but threw in a free product for me to try. They are terrific! I highly recommend Prose if you’re looking to change things up.

Revlon hair dryer: I’ve had some very nice followers ask if I would do a hair tutorial. But the truth is, I’m terrible at doing my hair. When I do need to look nice for pictures, I get some help. However, for just a normal day, I’ve had some great luck with this new hairdryer/brush/volumizer in one from Revlon. It makes getting that smooth blowout look very easy–no hairdryer/ brush coordination required.

I hope these little reviews are helpful! I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.

Have a good one!

    Target has legging by All in Motion! I love them they slide up and down your legs easily. Not expensive.
