Lipstick of all shades and types, skincare, vegan products, and all-natural solutions are my go-to's! I've always gravitated towards bold colors of the mermaid variety, and have a hard time leaving the house without a full face.
I'm a freelance blogger and small business expert. I've been spending 2017 focusing on travel, teaching myself new skillsets, and supporting my family. Waco, TX, is home, but the road is my comfort zone.
I have never been a "hand cream" person. I just always thought that was a silly distinction to make with lotion...until Trader Joe's! This stuff is incredible. I didn't even realize how much my hands needed this until I bought it on a whim (because I love their other beauty/skincare products so much). I definitely recommend trying this out if you have dry hands, work with your hands a lot, or just love some quality self-care time.
Love love LOVE this stuff. Perfect for morning toast with a cup of coffee or even as cookie or muffin icing. It's not super sweet and has a smooth consistency. Just a headsup: This is a true pumpkin butter, not like a fake pumpkin spice latte flavored butter... So if you're into semi-sweet, natural tasting butters (similar to TJ's Apple Butter), you'll love this product!
This is just like...overpriced, sub par liquid sugar. Not my cup of frappuccino, but even if I did enjoy the taste, I don't think it's worth the price point at all. Check out the ingredients list before purchasing these. No thanks, Starbucks.
Whether you're an avid coffee drinker or just enjoy the occasional cup, I definitely recommend Trader Joe's cold brew! It's really great diluted with coconut creamer or mixed into cappuccino smoothie. I trust Trader Joe's systems and ingredients, and it's pretty affordable (around $7, I think?). Totally worth it.
I'm a huuuuuuge coconut oil stan, but I really love the Trader Joe's version. It's smoother and even smells better than other competitors. I use it to cook with, on my skin (as a sun and mosquito repellant), to oil pull (for teeth), leave in hair conditioner, and so much more. Coconut oil is versatile and serves many amazing purposes, so it's definitely worth trying out! It's pricier than olive oil or other types, but it's long-lasting and a little goes a long way.
Happy 4/20, y'all. Make sure this snack is in your basket of treats today, heyyyy! Seriously though, all stoner jokes aside, this cookie spread is a must-try. Get ready to eat the whole jar in one sitting, not share with anyone, and put a lock around the pantry to keep your roommates from stealing some of this butter gold.
Favorite favorite FAVORITE almond butter. Total game changer. Trader Joe's is top notch anyway, but their Almond Butter is probably my favorite product. It's not super sweet, I trust their ingredients, and look at that branding!! Stellar stuff.
No matter what your skin type, I can guarantee Witch Hazel will help with your ailments. I have dry skin with hives, and when I use this regularly, I have fewer breakouts, and my skin feels moisturized and refreshed. It's gentle and smooth, and smells amazing, so it was a no-brainer to give it a try.
I'm happy I tried this spray out: super refreshing, smells amaaaaamazing, and feels great on my skin. I even used it as a setting spray after applying makeup. I'm happy to have it in my arsenal, but I'm not sure I would buy again because it didn't do much for my skin. I have naturally dry skin with hives, and I didn't notice any change other than my skin felt refreshed.
Alright, y'all. ColourPop is my JAM! I love the brand - they're cruelty free, woman owned, and prioritize diversity/inclusion in their line. If you have the opportunity, try out ColourPop.
Their Matte lips are totally hit or miss. Some of the shades are long-lasting, with gorgeous, hydrating finishes. Some are chalky, dry, and smear. It's totally random, in my experience, and varies each time I buy them.
Bottom line: is it worth it for $6.50? Absolutely. It really doesn't get much cheaper than this (especially for cruelty free lines). They have an almost endless amount of options, and the formula seems to be improving over the years.
