Sometimes the world around us changes so quickly and the ‘next best thing’ materializes before our eyes and it is so hard to decide when something is truly our favorite when we are constantly thinking of what is coming next. However, I have put together a list of a few of the things that I absolutely cannot live without, and thought it was worth sharing! With Christmas just around the corner, and other occasions such as Valentine’s day, Graduation, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day in our near future, it doesn’t hurt to know some tried and true items that the special someone in your life might love!
1. The Loopy Case
You can eye roll all that you want that this is the number one thing on my list, but you guys this case is literally something I cannot live without. I heard about this case from a friend, and I didn’t immediately buy one… but once I did, I was sold. This phone case comes with a built-in, interchangeable loop that allows you to hold your phone more comfortably in all situations. The case is designed not only to protect your phone from being dropped, but also as protection in case of a drop. Being someone who literally is always dropping my phone, this case really was a no brainer and no surprise when I instantly fell in love. And on top of the amazing case design, they are just gorgeous! Also, the company features many different designs from plain color, marble to even a Teakwood design; there is something for everyone. And if phone protection, comfort and design weren’t enough they have the best customer service I have ever experienced. If these few words have sparked some interest, you can check out the cases here and I promise you won’t regret it!
2. Herbal Dynamics Beauty: Volumizing Lip Scrub & Mask Duo
So as far as skin care products go I have tried SO many different brands and often end up disappointed. It is so hard to find something that works well with my skin, is made with all natural ingredients, is cruelty free and doesn’t cost me a fortune for a container of moisturizer. Queue Herbal Dynamics Beauty, a full line of skin-care products that are plant-based and affordable (sounds too good to be true, right?).
Well I am definitely IN LOVE! My absolute favorite product that I have from them is their Volumizing Lip Scrub & Mask Duo. These two products smell so amazing and they have worked wonders on my dry lips. The scrub is made with acai and mango oil, vitamin E, aloe, and shea, coco and mango butters. After using the sugar scrub your lips feel refreshed, exfoliated and ready for some lipstick or their lip mask. The mask uses the extract of the Kiss-me-now flower to naturally plump up your lips and stimulates hyaluronic acid synthesis to help soften your lips. These two products together are such a dream, and a must have in my opinion! You can find this amazing lip duo here, and feel free to explore their site and let me know what you think in the comments below!

3. Lively Bralettes
Now this one is just for the ladies, but these bralettes are literally my favorite piece of undergarments that I own! They are so comfortable; the straps don’t slip off your shoulders like others do and the lace makes them virtually invisible under all your clothing. Not only do I love their bralettes, but they also have amazing undergarments of all kinds. My favorite thing about this brand is how no matter which bra or bralette I am wearing, I forget that it is on! I have never been so in love with undergarments before and I am so glad that I found an affordable brand. The customer service is also amazing, returns are easy and if you are unsure about sizing or the fit just send them an email and they are there to help.

4. Ritual Vitamins
The whole idea behind vitamins is to fill in any gaps in your diet by providing you with the nutrients in pill form. However, most vitamins don’t taste good and are not formulated with the right kind of ingredients. And since the FDA does not regulate supplements, you may be wasting your money on a vegetable capsule filled with hydrogenated oil and synthetic dye (yuck!).
However, Ritual Vitamins has developed a women’s daily vitamin that is vegan friendly, gluten and allergn free, non-GMO and contains no colorants, no synthetic fibers. And if you are like me and vitamins make you nauseated sometimes, the capsule is designed to release in the less sensitive area of your gut and is essence with mint so they don’t taste like vitamins! They contain the 9 most essential nutrients that most women are not able to get from their diet and the difference I have felt since taking these vitamins in my energy levels, sleep and overall feeling of wellness gives these vitamins a well-deserved, spot on my must have list! Check them out here.
Okay, so maybe I am a little bit biased towards this item because I live in Arizona, but I honestly could not live without this. And it isn’t just the fact that it is a Hydroflask brand but you have got to have some sort of insulated water bottle, especially when you live in Arizona! Plus, I drink so much more water when I am able to drink the water through a straw and constantly have it with me without spilling it anywhere. And they come in fun colors or you can customize them on their website and make it truly your own! If you choose to purchase one as a gift don’t forget the straw lid, it’s really a must-have!
