Welcome to my random list of stuff I bought in the past month that has no place in any blog post other than this one lol. They are random, but they are good!

Recent Purchases

Our Place Pan

I feel like I've been seeing this all over Instagram lately and I have officially been influenced! I'll admit that I don't do much (if any) of the cooking. I leave that to Chef Andrew! In reality, I got this for him. It's an all-in-one non-stick pan. 

We used it last night for the first time and even I was impressed by how easily it washed. Not to mention it's so functional with the lid, the size, the spoon, and the holder. It's so smart! It's also very lightweight. I was able to snag it for $30 off, and you can too! They are currently running a sale on this pan so get it while you can!

Fleece Sweatpants

Yet another thing Jess Keys has influenced me to buy! I wanted these because I am always cold and they looked really comfortable. And they are! They're a little bulky at first but you definitely break them in. I sized up to a large (no one likes tight sweatpants) and they fit perfectly. For $35 you can do no wrong!


CeraVe Cream Cleanser
I've been deep into the Dr. Dray youtube world and she's convinced me to try out some new things. One is this face wash that she uses to clean her body. In her skincare routine, she mentioned that a lot of the normal body washes people use aren't that great for your skin, and we use way too much. She recommended using a facial cleanser for more soiled areas. But what really struck a chord with me was that she uses it on her underarms to help fight odor and has since stopped using deodorant!

I decided to give it a try, and so far it's been really great. I do like her and her suggestions but -- fair warning -- she is a little weird and hard to get used to. It kind of makes me trust her more? You can see for yourself!


CeraVe Healing Ointment

CeraVe Healing Ointment

Another Dr. Dray suggestion was this healing ointment. It's supposed to be great for all parts of your body: lips, face, knees, elbows, and anything else that needs that extra moisture. I wanted to try it out and see. I currently use regular old Vaseline, so I'm looking forward to seeing if this is better.


Tangle Teaser Brush

Tangle Teaser Brush

I have lived and died for my Wet Brush since 2010 and haven't steered away, but there are some things I don't love about the brush. Mainly the little white balls of something that get stuck in the bristles (please tell me I'm not alone in this). A friend suggested I try out this brush. It should be in later today and I am PUMPED to try it out. It's supposed to be just as good but easier to clean!


Differin Gel

Differin Gel

Oh gosh, I really fell into the Dr. Dray trap here lol. But to be fair a LOT of people have recommended this to me for my acne for many years, but Dr. Dray pushed me to finally get it lol. It's an acne treatment medicine that used to be prescription only but is now FDA approved OTC. It's pretty intense and my skin is going to be worse before it gets better,but hopefully, this will cure my acne once and for all!

P.S. I suggest watching lots of YouTube videos and reading about it to make sure you are using and applying it correctly!


The Folio

The Folio 

This was actually something I saw on TikTok a while ago and thought it was brilliant. It's a large folio to keep all your important documents and keepsakes. It's easily customizable so you can use the pockets and organize them as you please. I just like the idea of having everything in one place and then keeping it in a safe space!

Ritz Toasted Chips

Ritz Toasted Chips

I have my sister to thank for this new addiction but these chips are SO GOOD. They're like toasted crackers that provide the perfect crunch and flavor and snack. They're all I've been snacking on this month! I found a six-pack on Amazon and purchased them when I was visiting my sister and haven't looked back. 


Shore Magic Collagen Powder

Shore Magic Collagen Powder c/o

I used to take collagen all the time a few years back, but stopped for one reason or another. But I've been seeing some rave reviews on this collagen (it's winning a ton of awards) and decided to test it out for myself. I have been adding a scoop to my Naked juice in the afternoon (since I don't really drink anything else other than water) and it's been great so far. I've noticed my nails have gotten stronger than ever!

  1. I love Dr. Dray. I’ve been watching her for a few months now and my skin is clear of acne!! I also recommend Dr. Alexis Stephens on YouTube. She is fantastic!

  2. So I use the Wet Brush for wet hair and that Tangle Teezer brush for dry hair (Even though I know it's meant for/used for wet). I love them both so I still use both. My favorite part of the TT is that you can easily remove the hair/wash the brush out (unlike most brushes)
