1.  TRAPP CANDLE IN ORANGE VANILLA

Trapp Fragrances guarantees to fill a room with fragrance in minutes, and they deliver! The orange vanilla is my favorite because it smells like orange cinnamon rolls. I highly recommend these to anyone who like candles with a strong scent. 

2. EVELYN HENSON KANSAS CITY MAP PRINT

It's  an understatement to say that I'm OBSESSED with this print! Evelyn Henson is an artist who makes the cutest gifts. All of her work inspires me. If you are a fan of Lilly Pulitzer and Kate Spade (and who isn't?) then I'm sure you will love her work as well. Evelyn even includes instructions on how to DIY her own workI love that she is so willing to help others learn. Check out her Instagram to see more of her work @evelyn_henson.

3. TOO FACED PRIMED & PORELESS PRIMER

I used to be a skeptic for foundation primers. Even with skin that tends to be oily in the summer and large pores in my t-zone, I never used a primer that I really felt made my foundation both look better and last longer. Then I was introduced to the Too Faced Primed & Poreless Primer. This product really does make my pores disappear and my foundation lays much more smoothly on my skin. This is pricey at $30 a tube, but a little goes a long way and usually lasts me 3-4 months. 

 4. TOO FACED CHOCOLATE SOLEIL MATTE BRONZER 

Another favorite from Too Faced, this brand has changed the bronzer game for me. I used to only use drugstore bronzer because I didn't really think there was a quality difference between high- and low-end bronzer and blush. I was wrong. First, so may drugstore bronzers are filled with shimmer, which isn't always flattering under the fluorescent lighting in the office. This bronzer lasts all day, is completely matte so it can be used for contouring, and smells like chocolate. Just like the primer, a little goes a long way so your investment lasts for months before you need to repurchase. 

5. RALPH LAUREN MIDNIGHT ROMANCE PERFUME

The notes in this perfume are pink peony and black vanilla. It's the perfect perfume for me because I love sweet scents, but this one isn't too overpowering.
