Erno Laszlo Firmarine Life Essence Lotion

OMG. I AM IN LOVEEEEE WITH THIS STUFF. The brand Erno Laszlo is one I had never heard of prior to them sending their Firmarine Lift Essence Lotion to me. Well, let me tell you, and I am not just saying this: now that I’ve tried this one product of theirs, I want to try every product they have to offer!! A little bit about this very unique lotion: Spiralina Maxima and encapsulated collagen are two of it’s power ingredients. It claims to tone, hydrate, and revitalize the skin all while LIFTING it too! My take after using it for a few weeks, one pump every morning and every night on my face? Not only does it do all of that but it has made my pores so much smaller and less noticeable. I truly notice a difference in my skin and I am obsessed! I’m telling you, you should all buy this ASAP – it’s kind of life changing! 

Shop Erno Laszlo Firmarine Lift Essence Lotion HERE.

Oui by Yoplait Yogurt

Ok, so this Oui by Yoplait yogurt is THE BEST YOGURT I’VE EVER HAD, everrrrrr. Period. The end. In full transparency, I really only like the vanilla flavor but you guys, I actually more than like it. I love it. I crave it. For months, I’ve been eating it every single day around 2:30-3:00pm for a little afternoon snack. And I’m not getting sick of it either, because it’s literally the best tasting yogurt on the planet. It’s French yogurt and this might sound weird but while it is the most creamy, it’s also super light and refreshing. It’s different than any yogurt I’ve ever tried, but the BEST kind of different. Brody is obsessed with it too!!! Bonus that it comes in a glass container, though I have about 100 of them sitting in my kitchen and I don’t know if I should do something creative with them or just throw them in the recycling bin? If you have any ideas, let me know because I’ll keep them around for a bit!! Anyways, if you haven’t tried this most freaking delicious {lol have I convinced you yet?} yogurt out yet, you have to go to your nearest grocery store ASAP. I’ll even make it easy and provide the location finder for you – click HERE to find out where to buy it at a store near you!

One more thing: did you know I like eating almost everything with baby spoons while I’m at home? LOL don’t judge please but it is the truth. This Munchkin spoon shown above is the best baby spoon to use when eating this yogurt. Just trust me on this one. Hahahaha

Use the Yoplait Oui location finder HERE to see where to buy at a retailer near you.
Shop the baby spoons via my  Amazon Personal Page HERE or via Buy Buy Baby HERE.

Hair Coils for Creaseless Hair 

Does your hair crease from hair ties as badly as mine does? I mean, my hair is SO BAD with that. If I put it in a loose pony for even a minute, when I take it out my hair is completely creased EVERY SINGLE TIME. Not ideal, to say the least. Well, these spiral hair tie coils caught my eyes while shopping in a local boutique a few weeks ago and they are EVERYTHING. Like, how did I ever live without them? I love them!! While they may still leave the littlest crease of all creases, they basically don’t leave any crease at all – for instance, I will shower at night, dry my hair, and tie it into a pony while I sleep and when I wake up and take it out, my hair is basically creaseless and perfect!! My mind is boggled every time but it’s a for real thing!!!!! I even got my 4-year-old niece into them!!! I’m telling you, they are AWESOME!! They also come in tons of fun colors too!

Shop the exact hair coils that I have via my Amazon Personal Page HERE {because since I’ve only ever used this brand, I’m not sure if all brands are created equal in this case! HA}

Introducing you to 3 new products this week within my Currently Adoring: This Week's Must-Haves blog post! I have an amazing skincare product, something for your hair, and my favorite afternoon snack!! Check it out now! Click To Tweet
