Current Favorites

Sharing 5 things I am currently loving:
1. Native deodorant: I am interested in making a switch to natural deodorant. However, it's been a challenge to find something that works. I tried Tom's naturally dry deodorant and Jason natural deodorant but they just simply did not work. I sweat so easily. It doesn't matter if I run 1 mile or 10 miles, I look like a sweaty pig at the end of my run. As you might already know, most over the counter deodorants contain some form of aluminum. What aluminum does it basically act as a plug to sweat ducts to prevent sweating. Native deodorant is made without aluminum, parabens, phthalates, and talc. I don't know for a fact that there is a link between aluminum-based deodorants and breast cancer but if I can reduce my risks then why not? I purchased the travel sample pack to try (my favorite scent is the coconut & vanilla - smells absolutely amazing!). The best part? It works! It really does keep me dry all day. Read over 6000 positive reviews here
2. Floral phone case: How pretty is this phone case? It's so perfect for Spring. The best part is that you can personalize it any way you like (up to 20 characters). Mine is for the iPhone X but it's available for all versions. It won't provide much protection from drop damage but it's sure so pretty to look at.

3. Gucci Marmont bag: I talked about this little beauty here and I still can't get enough of it. I've been carrying it non stop and it practically goes with anything and everything. It's so versatile that I can easily dress it up or dress it down. You can wear this bag 5 different ways (I demonstrated here). If you've been thinking about this particular bag. I say just go for it. It's available in super mini, mini, small and medium
4. White mules: On the other side of the spectrum, I love affordable shoes from Target. I purchased these mules last Spring and have been wearing them to death. When I saw the white version, I had to have it. Just like the black ones, these mules are so comfortable to wear. They do not require a break-in period. White shoes are so chic for spring/summer. If you don't want to spend a fortune on a pair of designer mules, get these and I promise you won't regret it.
5. Uniqlo wireless bra: I ordered a bunch of stuff for our trip to Canada last month. I added this bra to my order just to get free shipping and now, I am obsessed. This is the most comfortable bra ever. It's extremely light weight and the material feels good on the skin. Even though it's wireless, the molded cups provide good support. If you're looking for the perfect everyday bra, give this one a try. It's available in 3 colors and currently on sale for under $15 (can't beat that!)

Thanks for sharing these "favorite" posts! I'm always looking for useful must-have things to buy. I've been using the Adidas Cotton technology deodorant that was marketed as "no aluminum" for years until they became discontinued :( They were the only thing that worked without aluminum in keeping dry. I even started buying the marked-up prices of old expired stocks left on Ebay, which is sad. I'm definitely intrigued by this "Native" deodorant. Crossing my fingers they'll work for me, haha. Ordering them right now!
