Starbucks Creamer & Sweet Foam
I don't leave myself a ton of extra time in the mornings. So, when I'm craving more than just a coffee with cream from the break room, and have no time to stop for a latte, this yummy duo does the trick! If you're a fan of hot lattes, this combo is for you! I add a healthy splash of the Cinnamon Dulce Cream to my coffee, and leave plenty of room for this sweet foam (it's NOT cool whip, although it looks like it) to top it off! The consistency of the foam reminds me of the cream in any cream-topped cold brew. You'll notice that most of my favorites and finds are budget friendly, and this one is no different! This coffee hack is delicious, and WAY more affordable than splurging for a Starbucks latte every day of the week!
CeraVe Eye Cream
I've made a new commitment this year to crack down on my skincare. Let me tell you though, good skincare can get pretty pricey, so I have been on a search for affordable products, that still provide quality, beneficial ingredients. If you're looking for the same, look no further than the CeraVe Eye Repair Cream. This lovely little tube is budget friendly (only around $10!) and is jam packed with skin-loving components! CeraVe claims that this cream will help improve puffiness and darkness around the eyes, and I can attest to these claims! This miracle product is sure to be permanent favorite of mine. It's a little tube of affordable magic!
Milani Duo Stick
Most mornings I'm trying to ready as quick as possible. It can be hard to find makeup products that can be thrown on quickly with little effort in application, and most days I still want to look a little glam. Discovering this Milani duo stick has been a game changer. This cream highlight and contour stick is super blendable, and is perfect for subtle sculping and a glowing finish. It's easy to apply, and blends out easily with a damp beauty blender. It's also small enough to throw in your bag for quick touchups on the go, or for a quick gym to grocery look. This handy little stick is also perfect for beginners in the highlight/contour game because of it's soft pigments. It's even a drugstore find, so it's budget friendly (of course!). You won't be dissapointed!
The Spoon Trick
If you're over at my house and open up the fridge for a snack, you might laugh at finding a spoon hanging out next to my eggs - but you won't be laughing when I tell you about the easiest beauty hack EVER! As a mom of two, I often go to bed late and wake up early. Most mornings my face is puffy and tired, and needs all the help it can get to come back to life. I know that right now the craze is all about jade rollers or quartz hearts, but these beauty tools can get pricey. What if I told you that all you need is a spoon from your kitchen to depuff and energize your face! Just place the spoon in your fridge overnight, and in morning use the back of the chilled spoon to massage your face in upward motions. I like to apply my face oils and/or moisturizer first, as it can help the spoon glide across your skin, rather than puling. Who knew, right?! They're not just for soup and ice cream!
