Beauty Goodies I’ve Been Loving


Falling in Love ?

Hello to a brand new week, LoDown fam! We’re approaching the final stretch of September and I’m really enjoying the slight drop in temperature. Wouldn’t you agree?

Fall is, hands-down, my favorite season.

I mean, who doesn’t love walking on beautiful crunchy leaves, in booties, with a Soy Pumpkin Spice Latte in hand?

Ugh, the good life!

Speaking of good things, I’m here to talk about some beauty goodies I’ve been loving!


I absolutely love Glossier‘s “skincare is essential and makeup is a choice” motto. Skincare definitely comes first, and this company has everything your skin desires. Their makeup is more on the natural side, which makes their products a go-to for those carefree, lazy days. In fact, the Supers serums they’ve just launched are next on my shopping list. Did I mention each order comes with free stickers? Yup, I decked out my Milky Jelly Cleanser right away.

The Estee Edit

It’s like Estee Lauder’s long lost baby sister was finally found! The Estee Edit, birthed earlier this year, has everything ranging from skincare to makeup. Dressed in blue, white, and silver, their packaging is runway-ready. My favorites? The Barest Lip Color lipstick collection and their skincare line!

Herbivore Botanicals

If you’ve been reading my articles since the beginning of the year, then you’ve probably seen Herbivore‘s Jasmine Glowing Hydration Body Oil in my Winter Beauty Essentials post. Since then, I’ve fallen more in love with the skincare brand. Herbivore encompasses all things skincare in glass (how classy), and I love how each product comes in a different color.

Essie Gel Couture

Essie Gel Couture was officially introduced to the world this past summer. Just look at the new jaw-dropping runway-inspired bottles! These polishes have been my go-to as of late because they’re long-lasting and feel just like a gel manicure, without the UV light! They come in 42 glorious shades. Don’t forget to pick up the Gel Couture Top Coat (all-white bottle) as well!

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
