Random Things I'm Loving

Helllooo everyone :) Since I can't always film I thought it'd be fun to share some new things I got recently that I've been really in to! For those of you guys who watch my videos...I just bought a new light so I'm super excited to get it and hopefully I won't have to whine about the light anymore. Anyway on to my fave products! ^_______^

This chunky bib necklace has the most BEAUTIFUL of all its pretty inexpensive and ranges from $8-$10 depending on the day. (Yesstyle adjusts their prices according to the exchange rate). I did get a pair of earrings from this company and was totally unimpressed, but this necklace has made multiple appearances throughout the past few weeks. It's perfect to dress up a plain top :) 
You can buy this on Yesstyle

Hammered Spike Necklace 
Also loving this necklace as well. I tried to adjust the brightness and contrast since this photo was taken with really low lighting so it's sort of blurry sorry! Their stock photo on the website is much better and more clear. They have an all gold version but I think the alternating spikes of gold and rose gold look much more interesting :)
You can buy this here on DailyLook 

Essie's In the Cab-ana nail polish
No lie, traditionally speaking I'm a total ESSIE POLISH HATER. Hate the brush, formula etc. But my friend needed me to paint this on her on our way to Vegas and I have to admit- I was blown away by the pigmentation and how beautiful this color was. Its just about 90% opaque with one application, and its a real head turner. I always get compliments when I wear this! Two thumbs way way up.

Bath and Body Work "Scent Portables" Car Fresheners
Random fact: I love a good smelling car! It just makes them seem so clean and for some reason I like driving at night better with one in. Bath and Body Works makes some of my favorite ones :) "Island margarita" is the best scent in my opinion, as a lot of the other scents they have are either cotton/linen inspired or they smell food-like. I like to eat cupcakes, but I don't like to smell them! I prefer clean, fruity scents. I'm always on the prowl for an effective but economical air freshener for my car. I feel like most of them go out so quickly or they don't smell very good. But these little bad boys tend to last quite awhile...a few months in the hot SoCal summer sun. Pretty impressive! And only $3.50 a pod (they have a buy three, get one free deal). Way better than the Asian ones I used to buy which were not only pricey, but didn't seem to last very long.

In college I used to always buy these ones. My favorite was the white peach (pictured here). They smell AMAZING but they'd dry up so quickly! That and they're kind of a pain in the butt to find. I'd even poke through the tin foil with a push pin vs. tearing off the tin foil to try and get the scent to last longer but I could never get more than a few weeks out of it.

You do have to have one of these cases but most of them are pretty inexpensive. I don't recommend hanging them upside down though as one LEAKED on my leather seat. I literally flipped out, but I've had enough of them to know that was probably a faulty one but just in case, now I bought a new case and clip it to the dash rather than upside down on my visor.

So that's all! If you haven't seen it yet I also uploaded a video today (I'm on a roll) which you can check out below :D

 I know the setting isn't quite perfected yet...but I always appreciate everyone's seemingly endless patience with me! I promise the new lights will make everything a bit easier :)
