{Five Things}

1. OGX Quenched Sea Mineral Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner - I'm easily sold on anything with an ocean-inspired scent and I already loved the OGX brand (formerly Organix), so when I spotted their new line of shampoos and conditioners that came out earlier this year, I stocked up. I love the sea mineral shampoo and conditioner for the moisturizing effect it has on my hair and it smells good between washes, which is usually a 2-3 day span for me. 

2. Rimmel 60 Second Nail in I Lilac You - Normally there isn't time or necessity for me to have my nails painted. But I've been a longtime user of Rimmel's 60 Second polish so I grabbed a fresh shade of lilac and put some on and it took about five minutes to apply and dry and lasted about four days. Not bad! Plus I got several compliments on the hue.

3. Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes in Grapefruit - These are great for a quick freshen up in the middle of the day or after a workout, or for a quick face clean at night if I haven't worn any makeup that day (which, let's be honest, is way too frequent). Love the smell, the soft after-effect and the time-saver!

4. Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil - I've talked about my love of Coconut Oil before—I use it for face lotion, undereye cream, burn, scrapes and insect bite relief and more. And now I've begun using it for deodorant! A friend of mine told me she'd started using it for that purpose so I gave it a whirl. A pea-sized amount applied to the underarm in the morning and I smell fresh all day long!

5. TRESemmé Treatment Split Remedy Conditioning Spray - Because I have naturally curly hair, it sometimes takes awhile to get all the kinks brushed out after I shower. So I pretty much always have a conditioning or detangler spray on hand. The one I'd been using for years is no longer available (hate when that happens), so I recently picked this up at Target. I've always liked the TRESemme brand and this was no exception. It's lightweight and non-greasy and gives my hair the extra nourishment and detangling it needs. Plus it's budget-friendly!
Thanks for reading along this edition of Five Things!

  1. Thanks for sharing! I always enjoy recommendations like these. Will definitely try the face cleansers. Last one I tried did not smell like I thought it would and they feel abrasive.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Hi Amber! I just found your blog and I am super excited to read through it. Only issue is that all your older pictures (of your pregnancy etc) are not showing up. All I'm seeing is a circle with a dash through them. I googled and apparently it's something to do with your privacy settings? I'm not sure, I just wanted to let you know.

    Have a lovely day!xxx

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I think I've fixed it now. Let me know if any photos still aren't showing up...

  3. I love the organix brand too, I didn't know they were renamed. When I'm out of shampoo I'll have to check out this scent.
    I tried coconut oil for deoderant this morning, but I should've used it right after my shower instead. Trying tonight.
    Oh, and you know I'm trying the quick dry polish since I'm a DIY gal!

  4. When you were pregnant, what shampoo and conditioner did you use??? Thanks!

  5. I'm going to try the coconut oil for deodorant


I love to hear from any readers out there, just keep it clean and friendly!
