Current Favorites | Dry Shampoo, BB Cream, and Politically Re-Active

Current Favorites posts are one of my favorite blog posts to do. It’s an opportunity for me to share with my readers the things that I love and perhaps for you to discover new things that you may come to love as well. Here are a few of my current favorite things.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray
This facial spray has quickly become one of my holy grail products. I use it to prime my face, intensify my highlight, set my makeup, and right before I apply my moisturizer. This product is also great if your face just needs a little refresher throughout the day. I love carrying this around in my handbag for long days, road trips or beach days.

Batiste Dry Shampoo in Coconut & Exotic Tropical
For days when I cannot be bothered with my hair I turn to dry shampoo. A brand that I continuously return to is Batiste. Not only does this dry shampoo refresh my second or third day hair, but it also adds a lot of volume and texture.

drybar Sparkling Soda Shine Mist
About a month ago, I decided to try the drybar Sparkling Soda Shine Mist in their travel size and I really like it. It gives your hair a really nice shine and it smells amazing. I will definitely be investing in the full size once I run out.

CoverGirl Clean Matte BB Cream for Oily Skin
This BB cream has great coverage, feels lightweight, is long lasting, and inexpensive.

“Cake by the Ocean” by DNCE
I cannot stop listening to this song. Seriously, I can’t. I have had it on repeat. They’re EP SWAAY is currently available to listen to. It’s filled with catchy pop songs that are fun to listen, dance, and sing-along to. “Toothbrush” is also another great song.

Footbed Sandals
I found these beauties whilst wondering around at Target one afternoon. I was hesitant to buy them at first, but I am so happy I did because I wear them all the time. If you’re like me and don’t want to dish out over a hundred dollars on a pair of Birkenstocks, then these are a great alternative and are just as comfortable.

Politically Re-Active with W. Kamau Bell and Hari Kondabolu
I was listening to Bitch Media’s podcast, Popaganda “Best-Of: Activism” episode, when host Sarah Mirk mentioned that Hari had started his own podcast with W. Kamau Bell called Politically Re-Active. It’s educational, informative, smart, and hilarious.

Lastly, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your sweet and encouraging words on my last blog post “A Bump in the Road.” I’m still trying to sort out my life which is why I’ve been seriously slacking when it comes to my blog, but I am trying my best to get back on track with by posting on my regularly scheduled Mondays and Wednesdays.

Sincerely,
Alexis Renae Griggs
