Happy Blogmas Day 5! Today we will be discussing items that are pretty pricey but honestly make life easier and make me happy! I did not buy all of these items at one time and I am very lucky to have these. If you can afford to splurge a little bit, I definitely recommend one of these!
I adore my MacBook. I think it is 100% worth the hype and I have used it pretty much every single day since I got it my junior year of high school, which proves it lasts a long time. I would not recommend this computer for any engineering or computer science majors because at least at my college, the programs required to do most of the projects and programming aren’t available on the mac. I have the gold MacBook air and I adore it, but the only thing I would change is that it only has a charging port and headphone jack, so I need an adaptor for anything else. It is so cute, works so well for blogging, day to day things, notes, everything I need it for. 10/10 recommend.
2. Clinique Face Brush
If you can invest in a face brush, whether it’s a clinique one like mine, a Duval spin brush or any cheaper alternative, please do. This changed my skin. I like to double cleanse and always thought my hands did a decent job, but they, in fact, did not. Having a facial brush exfoliates me gently every day, gets every piece of makeup off and has replaceable heads that are really affordable. Your skin will thank you. Get mine here.
3. Manicures and Pedicures.
I think the power of a good manicure is often overlooked by people. Having clean, well-kept nails is really important to me and makes me feel so much more put together and confident. It honestly is the most worth it thing to me on this list.
4. Good Quality Shoes.
Once you have stopped growing, your feet will be the same size almost always unless you get pregnant or something like that. Once you are 18+ I think you should have one expensive, good, long-wear quality pair of casual shoes and one pair of dress shoes. You should have a pair of dress shoes for things such as job interviews or even office jobs and a casual pair that you know will be trusty and always reliable, mine are the Doc Martens I mentioned in yesterdays blog. It will cost you more to buy cheap sneakers and heels and keep replacing them for every occasion when you can invest once and have them for a long time. I would recommend brown leather dress shoes for men, nude high heels with pointed toes for women, and fashion sneakers or Doc’s.
Yes, there are a lot of really fantastic drug store foundations that work for most people, but I find that the higher-end foundations works best for my comb0/dry skin and cystic acne (awesome right). I don’t wear foundation every day and when I do, I want it to cover everything and give me a really flawless finish. I love the Estee Lauder Double-wear foundation for a high coverage option and the IT cosmetics CC cream.
