Hiiii friends! I’m NOT dead, I swear.
Just busy, so same thing kind of. My September was INSANE. It basically lasted two hours. And here we are in October, which is also gearing up to be a busy one!
How you are you guys? What have I missed? I feel like a lot…
As you may or may not already know, Andrew and I are actively looking for a condo together. It’s been a LOOOONG ride. We’re being super picky, but like, we knew that was going to happen. I think we’ve seen over 30 places now, and none of them have been IT for us. I feel like we’ll just know when we see it, you know? Kind of like when a bride finds her dress, or something?
Anyway, so that’s happening. Stay tuned.
We also finally got my best friend married, and it was perfection. She was the most beautiful bride ever. The day went smoothly. We drank A LOT. Partied like crazy. And had massive hangovers the next day. But, how else do you celebrate your best friend’s wedding? AMIRIGHT?
Here are a few photos from the day:
Okay, let’s jump into my new series!! If you guys aren’t already following me on Instagram, you’re seriously missing out. We’ve started a new IG series called ‘MONDAY MUST-HAVES’.
Basically, every Monday on Instagram Stories, I’ll be sharing a product/item that is a MUST HAVE in my life. It could be a skincare product, make-up product, an outfit, a lifestyle product, basically ANYTHING that I use and love, and think YOU would love too.
So, how did this come about? Well, every time I shared a product or something I was using a lot on IG stories, I would get a million DMs asking me where I got it from and to share a link so that you guys could buy it too. I LOVE that you guys trust my opinions on things. This is WHY The Chic Confidential exists. We’re ALL about sharing on this platform. If something is working for me, I HAVE to share that with you. No secrets here. So, this is why I came up with Monday Must-Haves. Everything I share on there has a link for you to shop it. I talk about WHY I love the item/product, the benefits, how I use it, why it’s working for me, and why I think you guys would love it too.
We’re in the 4th week of it now, and you guys seem to love it! I’m recapping what I’ve shared so far on Monday Must-Haves:
Week 1: THE ICE ROLLER.
I mean, how could I NOT start with this one? It’s been a game changer in my life ever since I started using it. I’ve been using it for 2 years now, and I’m obsessed with this product. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, head to this blog post. I explain the benefits and WHY it’s so good for your skin, anti-aging, reducing puffiness, and over all glow. YOU NEED IT.
Week 2: SCHMIDT’S NATURAL DEODORANT
This is an important one, because for the last 3 years I’ve been trying and testing out hundreds of natural deodorants. I was DETERMINED to find the one that works. There’s been a lotttt of smelly nights (just ask Andrew) and a lot of money spent on some bad ones, but I’ve finally found the holy grail of natural deodorants. If you’re making the switch (which I highly recommend!!) look no further. Schmidt’s is IT. And no guys, this is not sponsored in anyway. I just LOVE this product.
Week 3: IRRESISTIBLE ME CURLING WAND.
One of the most asked questions I get, is how I do my hair? How I get those perfect wavy curls? Well, first off, I’m blessed with some unruly, naturally curly hair. This was a pain in my younger days, but now I’ve learned how to control that beast. And I’ve learned with this ridiculously amazing curling wand. It’s the ONLY one you’ll ever need. The wand comes with 8 different toppers which are different sizes and shapes, and works beautifully. I’ve had mine for about 4 years now, and I’ll honestly never need another one.
Week 4: ALL BIRDS RUNNING SHOES.
OH. MY. GOSH. I cannot explain enough how fucking amazing these runners are. If you knew me 4 years ago, you’d know that I didn’t even own ONE pair of runners. Nope, not for me. Until my best friend thought I was insane and needed to be more active in life, so for my 27th birthday she bought me running shoes. Like Sketchers… I hated her for a second, and then we went for a hike, and now I’m obsessed with hikes. I now own 6 pairs of runners, but recently got introduced to All Birds running shoes, and they changed my life. To be honest, they are not for people who actually run. But if you hike, walk, work out, etc. they are THE BESTTTT. I can’t wear anything else.
K, so if you’re not already following on Instagram, you need to do it now, and NOT miss out on the next Monday Must-Have!
