Hi friends! I’m excited to start announce a new series on the blog and YouTube channel called, Currently Loving. This will be all things beauty, fashion, and lifestyle, including home decor! I wanted to originally do this every month, but I think every couple months will be better so I have time to build up some favorites. Since this is the first post and video, I’m sharing quite a bit, but I’m very excited for what I have to share.
If you’re not already subscribed to my YouTube channel, you can do so HERE. Be sure to hit that notification bell too so you’re notified when a new video goes live. My goal is to get back into filming more videos too, so lots more coming!
Currently Loving – August & September
Even though September is only halfway over, I named it August and September favorites because a lot of these items are favorites from this month. I am sharing my video below – it’s a long one, but worth the watch. It includes all the links and goes over each item by category. Below the video, I’m also sharing the links and a quick blurb about the items.
Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm or on Sale now HERE – this is the best cleansing balm for taking makeup off- I double cleanse with this, which means I use the cleansing balm and then go in after with a clarifying cleanser to really get all of the dirt and debris off the skin.
Philosophy Nature in a Jar Nourishing In Shower Oil – this shower oil can be put on while just finishing up in the shower, while your skin still has some water on it. It’s very nourishing and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth. It also gives a nice shine to the skin.
Lip Complex Lip Plumper – get $10 off your first order with this link – I’ve been using this for a couple of months now. In the video, you’ll see the before and after photo. The results are amazing.
TULA Glow Hour – I love the TULA glow balms and this is the newest one, in collaboration with Courtney Shields. This one specifically targets under eye circles with the yellow/orange undertone. I love the cooling sensation and how it can be used under or over makeup. Use code ITSMEKELSIE for 15% off their website
Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops in the shade Medium or get them on SALE HERE – This is my favorite face tanner. They are gradual tanning drops that you add into your moisturizer. I usually add them to my nightly moisturizer every day or every other to give a subtle hint of color.
Valentino UOMO Perfume – I’ve finally upgraded from body splashes to adult perfume bottles! I’ve been loving this fragrance, especially now that we’re heading into fall. It’s a warm and spicy, almost manly scent.
TULA Face Filter Blurring & Moisturizing Primer (Jumbo size) – this primer is my everyday go-to. It starts out as a white/gray color and as you rub it in, it turns into a slightly tinted color which is perfect for imperfections. Use code ITSMEKELSIE for 15% off their website (click HERE for the smaller size)
Urban Decay Lash Freak Mascara – I have been loving this mascara. When I first started wearing it, I got a few questions on Instagram asking if I got my lash extensions back. I wish I did, but nope, it was just the mascara. Pro Tip: Wipe off the excess mascara before applying. It ends up being too much sometimes and can affect the outcome of the lashes.
Tie Dye Crop Hoodie – I’m wearing this in the video and love it! I sized up one because I always do in this brand. It’s a crop top, but not a super cropped length which I love.
Chain Link Necklace Set – I’ve been wearing this non-stop since I got it earlier this month. I love to pair it with the next necklace too.
Initial Necklace – not really a recent favorite, but more like a YEARLY favorite! I wear this necklace daily and it’s in the $10 range, so for it not to tarnish after wearing it so often, I’m impressed!
Small Pave Huggie Earrings in Yellow Gold – I got these last year and loved them, but then lost them in Hawaii. Once I got my ears pierced earlier this year (adding second holes to each ear), I purchased another set. They’re $13 and I never take them out!
Victoria Emerson Bracelet Cuff – One of my everyday arm pieces – it’s super easy to throw on and go!
Black and Gold Fashion Backpack – I’ve been into the fashion backpacks lately and this one is an amazing deal and very cute!
Barefoot Dreams Cardigan – wearing a medium and comes in other colors too. I love Barefoot Dreams – they’re clothing is super great quality and the softest!
Haley Glasses – Wearing these glasses in the video. It took me forever to find a pair that was perfect for me, and these are it! I also added the blue light blocking lenses since I’m on the computer and phone all day!
USB Rechargeable Lighter – the coolest lighter!
Nest Candle in Ocean Mist & Sea Salt – I’ve been looking for candles that are non-Bath & Body Works candles. I love B&BW, but wanted to switch it up and found these! The smell is amazing and it burns nicely!
Customized Starbucks Travel Coffee Mug – I LOVE these mugs. I have the hot cups and the cold cups and she has the best designs that you can customize! Use code KELSIE10 for 10% off too!
That’s everything! It’s a lot, but since this is my first video, I figured it would be a bit longer than usual since I have a LOT of favs! I hope you found some new favs yourself! Let me know what you want to see more of in the next videos.
Thanks for watching and reading!
