It's March, Spring is just around the corner, (or if you live in CA like me, it never really left) and I'm kind of pumped about these new-to-me favorites that I absolutely need to share with you:

bkr Glass Water Bottle // In order to make myself drink less hot tea at work and more water, I purchased this glass water bottle. I know...it doesn't take a new fancy bottle to drink more water, but humor me, please. My favorite feature of this bottle is the top. It's the is the exact same size as a plastic water bottle top and I don't know what it is, but I can down one of those in no time. Yeah, that makes no sense, but I swear the small top works and I'm refilling this all day long. They also have cute colors (I chose Boy, above) and the glass means my water doesn't taste all funky. Hydration, here I come.
2015 Wall Confetti Calendar by Happy Dappy Bits // I spend a lot of time at work and I'm trying to make my cube a comfy and cozy place. The first thing I purchased was this little confetti calendar and it's not only cute, but has been pretty functional too. A calendar, functional? Imagine that. I'm also thinking of buying this for my cube. It's a good reminder.
Tarte Clean Slate Poreless 12-Hour Perfecting Primer // For Christmas, I received the 2014 Tarte Advent Calendar and this was hands-down my favorite product from the set. I immediately purchased the full size version. Now, I don't wear foundation (just tinted moisturizer), but I still reap the benefits of this primer. It's a super smooth gel that rubs in almost immediately. It fills pores, evens skin tone and makes my face baby-bottom soft. I could just rave and rave about it. It's my favorite thing to put on each morning and a step that takes less than 30 seconds.
Athleta // Why oh why did it take me this long to discover the wonderful world of Athleta? I've been a loyal Lululemon shopper for years now. I invested in some of their pieces a long time ago when my company gave me fitness stipends to purchase clothes to
The Body Shop // I know. I'm just now getting on The Body Shop bandwagon! I'm so behind on what's cool. Emma told me about this brand last fall and when they had a huge 40% off sale right before Christmas, I purchased a big box of stuff for Christmas presents and a few things for me and Brandon to try. First of all, their face wash foams are fantastic. I use the Nutriganics Foaming Facial Wash each morning and it's so gentle and soothing. I also purchased the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser for Brandon, but I use it just as much. I feel like it gives me a really nice deep clean. He also loves it and this is coming from a boy who hates any type of product and previously used a bar of soap on his face. I purchased a ton of shower gels when they were on sale for $5 for Christmas presents and I got to smell them all before I gave half of them away. I ended up keeping the Satsuma one for myself, but the Grapefruit, Coconut, and Peach I purchased were just as amazing. I need the coconut on for summer. I got Brandon the Olive Oil one and even though I love it on him, he's kind of meh about it. Boys. At least he's washing his face now, right? I should also mention that these products are very natural with no sulfates or parabens. I'm super sensitive to perfumes so I'm happy that The Body Shop only uses natural scents that don't make my head explode.
So there you have it. It's official. I have a shopping problem.
