A Few Things I'm Obsessing Over Right Now (Pt. IV)


I haven't done one of these for awhile, so it seemed like high time to tell you what I've been loving lately. Yes, almost everything on this list is beauty-related, so fellas, you may want to move along, except to read about my new cracker obsession. Without further ado, here's what's tickling me pink (I hate the color pink) these days:
  1. Perfectly Posh Moisturize 911 Caffeinated Face Cream
    I've written about my obsession with this brand before, & this is my new favorite product from them. I wear a BB cream in the mornings, but at night, I slather this all over my face & neck for a quick moisturizing refresher. I love the way it makes me skin tingle! 
     
  2. Fat and the Moon Deodorant Cream
    After a few allergic reactions to drugstore deodorant, I did some research on organic brands & ended up buying this homemade concoction sold on Etsy. It's like a paste, made of coconut oil, aluminum-free baking soda, arrowroot starch, beeswax, & various essential oils. Sounds super-hippie, but it smells great & works well! 
     
  3. Criminal Minds
    As a longtime fan, I've seen every episode of this show... but recently, out of nowhere, I decided to rewatch all of them. That means I don't have to pay close attention, which makes it great for work-from home background noise. I keep it on during the day & am breezing through the entire splendid series. So damn creepy. 
      
  4. Natural Sole Grandeur Huarache Flat
    I bought these amazing huaraches (a type of Mexican sandal) from Marshall's, of all places, on serious sale. They were only $15! It hasn't been warm enough yet to wear them with any regularity, but I look forward to getting plenty of wear out of them this summer. They're comfy and make me look cooler than I am, both of which get two thumbs up from me.
     
  5. Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins Cracker
    I'm obsessed with these gluten-free crisps, which taste like nothing & therefore go with everything: cheese trays, dips, hummus, straight out of the box... They're way healthier than most crackers, which means far less guilt for me.
     
  6. Robyn Rhodes Jenny Necklace
    This long, bohemian piece is one that I kept from my last Rocksbox set, despite the fact that it cost more than I wanted to spend. I was dead-set on sending it back but just couldn't part with it! Use code heyescapistxoxo for a free month of Rocksbox, a jewelry subscription service.
     
  7. Revlon Ultra HD Lipstick in Gladiolus
    This lipstick came in a subscription box of some sort - can't remember which one - & I didn't initially think much of it because it's a drugstore brand & the color looks super bright. Now? It's my favorite go-to color, a little quirky but still appropriate for everyday life. 
      
  8.  Overdrive
    At the beginning of the year, I committed not to spending money on books. Though I've slipped a few times, I've mostly been checking out books from my local library or using Overdrive, a site/app to download library media. The functionality itself needs some work, but once I find what I need & get it onto my Kindle app, I'm a happy camper.
     
  9. Lulu Organics Hair Powder
    I've tried a lot of kinds of dry shampoo, & this one, while expensive, is easily the best of the bunch so far. A little bit goes a long way, & I like that it feels more like clay than like... some gross gunk coating my scalp on days of unwash.
     
  10. The 52 Lists Project by Moorea Seal
    If you haven't heard of Moorea & her fantastic, Seattle-based shop, what are you waiting for? She's a blogger turned entrepreneur, turning her Etsy shop into a successful brick & mortar shop & morphing her popular list-based blog posts into this journal. I'm not one for inspirational quotes, but I look forward to these entries each week.
     
  11. Carol's Daughter Sacred Tiare Shampoo & Conditioner
    This hair strengthening duo is technically made for curly-haired ladies, which I am not. But there aren't a lot of good shampoos out there, I've found, for gals with wavy hair, & this one fits the bill. When I'm using this on my hair, I can go up to three days without washing it, & it looks damn good the entire time.
      
  12. Brie
    What a ridiculous thing to include on this list, right? Everyone likes Brie - but lately, my obsession has been revitalized. I've been eating it atop paper-thin wafer crackers (or Nut Thins!) with a smear of fig jam & half a piece of lite salami. What do you mean, that doesn't as lunch? Yes, it does. 
Tell me: What are you obsessed with these days?
