Happy Friday, everyone!
We have been graced with yet another long weekend to celebrate Mashujaa/Heroes Day and the excitement is so real! Not that I have anything extra planned out, but if you know me well enough, then you know that I live for being able to sleep in, which I don’t often get to do on weekdays, catch up with loved ones, binge on my fave shows – I’m currently glued to Ozark! – and all other clichés that these
two three days intended for rest permit 🙂
It’s been such a frantic week for me, trying to fit in so much in such little time, but the highlight was definitely Tuesday, when Ngomo and I hit the road at dawn and set out to a gorgeous destination, to do what we do best. We were so exhausted (and hungry!) by the end of it all, but I cannot wait to share with you guys how it all went down. I have some fun, planned content which we’ve been working on behind the scenes, but today I’ll be doing some freeform writing (which I haven’t done in a while) just to let you in on some of the things I’ve been loving lately.
October has been such a beautiful month, full of birthdays, events and (mostly) sunny weather. It’s also been a month that I have indulged in a lot of self-care and at-home pampering, which reflects in this month’s favorites.
1. JASMINE AND GREEN APPLE
Fun fact about me? I live for refreshing, light and airy scents with sweet and fruity nuances, so it’s no surprise that I’m loving the Jasmine and Green Apple essential oil range from the Bath and Body Works collection. This collection packs the entire range, from shower gel, to body splash, body cream as well as body lotion, which is hands-down the perfect recipe for a refreshing and scent-ual delight! I especially love to use the body cream during the day, due to its thick, creamy and moisturizing consistency, not to mention the scent lasts all day long!
2. MELON MARGARITA, ANYONE?
There’s something about this foaming hand wash that immediately transports me to the tropical vacation that I’ve been dreaming so much about lately! Remember what I said about my love for fruity scents? This one goes even further to capture the very essence of warm summers by the beach and I love that it doesn’t have that dreadful drying effect on my hands, which can sometimes tend to happen after regular lathering.
3. COCO-SHEA, HONEY!
This is a relatively new addition to the Bath and Body Works line of products and I cannot deal with all the scent-astic yumminess that this product is packing! They had me at Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Honey; literally three products I CANNOT live without, beautifully existing in a single tube. The shower cream has, without a doubt, raised my bath time ante with its decadent scent and rich, moisturizing nature and because I prefer creamier options for daytime, the lighter consistency of the lotion makes for the perfect night time moisturizing companion.
That’s all I have for you today, folks!
Thank you all so much for stopping by and have a happy Mashujaa/Heroes day and long weekend!
