one. My name is Ashley and I am a candle addict. I am always on the hunt for a new candle to become “the official scent of my home”. Just like every woman has a signature fragrance, I believe every home should have a signature smell. When I found Christian and Filippa, I found the one. Not only does their From Paris With Love candle make pretty table decor, the peony, vanilla and must scent is both feminine and light.
two. My love for matcha runs so deep, it’d no longer just in my beauty routine; it’s official hit my snack cabinet too. If you live in NYC, head to Chinatown and find a local grocery store and you’ll find an assortment of green tea and match snacks like my favorites from Pocky and KitKat. Yum!
three. Any beauty product that calls itself a “Potion” has my vote. Lark products are not just beautifully minimalist but their potions are natural. My personal favorites from their line include the Beauty Potion that works to tone your skin when used directly on a clean face, mixed in nightly moisturizer, or dropped into your daily foundation, and the Hair Potion that protects hair from heat styling.
four. Ritual is a new kind of health brand. They set out to develop Essential for Women: something simple, effective, and backed by real science. They challenged some of the top scientists to dream up the perfect daily vitamin for women. The result is a vitamin packed with the 9 essential nutrients women lack the most without synthetic fillers, colors, or GMOs, and that is Vegan and Gluten and Soy free. At only $30/month for 60 capsules (1 month supply), this is once subscription box worth trying! Because, who doesn’t want more energy, an improved mood, and healthier skin?
five. Besides how cute the makeup case is, I can’t get enough of Maybelline’s 24K Nude Eyeshadow Palette, which is perfect for my blonde hair and pale complexion. I have to be honest, the assortment of nude lipsticks was overwhelming to test at first, but to my surprise I found more than one nude matte lipstick that I don’t know how I lived without before. The Color Sensational Inti-Matte Nudes have an assortment of 10 shades that are sure to fit every complexion.
