Current Favorites

Hey y'all!

Today I'm popping in because I want to share a couple of my current essentials/favorites-just things that I've been loving & finding useful lately...I hope y'all enjoy this shortie of a post!

Bath & Body Works Bourbon Strawberry Vanilla Body Spray
Y'all, when I started writing out this post I was going to B&BW website to link this product and I realized that it's gone for the season (hopefully it will be back in the Spring!)
This spray was gifted to me by my sweet Mother-in-Law for my birthday & I absolutely love it
It smells so sweet, but clean & fresh as well.
Sometimes, B&BW scents overwhelm me and give me headaches, but this one is just enough.
It's also a long lasting scent-I love that I don't have to use a ton of it.
Lastly, that packaging's so gorgeous!

I have been a fan of Valentia products for quite some time, I have two of their serums that I use on a daily basis that have been game changers for my skin.
When I got the chance to work with them to promote this moisturizer, I didn't have to be asked twice-I knew when they contacted me that I would not be disappointed.

It claims to lighten dark spots, restore skin radiance, even skin tone, diminish fine lines, and provide all-day hydration because of it's key ingredients like Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Ginseng, Salflower Oil, and Shea Butter. 

So far, I can attest to the evening of skin tone, skin radiance, and the all-day hydration-those were all almost immediate for me!
I highly recommend trying out anything from Valentia, but especially this moisturizer-it just can't be beat, especially since we're about to go through a season change (that always messes up my skin!)

Make sure you follow along with Valentia on Facebook or Insta for product releases and updates :) 

I have an entire post coming up about this product (how I included it in my wedding day-yup, the wedding belles series is coming back!) but today I just wanted to let you know that I have fallen for this product so, so hard.

I first tried it out about two years ago, and since then have gone through several bottles, both travel and full-sized.
I use it in the mornings as I do my makeup, I use it on my face to keep from getting too warm (it's perfect by the pool or beach!), and I think it would be great for travel-hello dry airplane air!

Also, today I'm going to let you know about a giveaway that I'm hosting with Evian (you can enter below!) If you win, the prize is a $25 Amazon gift card, a 10 oz Evian Facial Spray, a 5 oz Evian Facial Spray, & three 1.7 oz travel sized Evian Facial Sprays (which is a total value of over $75!)

Well y'all, that's all for today! Be on the lookout for several posts coming up in the next few weeks-I've got big plans for y'all :)

Until next time. . .
