Banila Co Clean It Zero Original Cleansing Balm

my #1 makeup remover and cleanser!!! it takes off even the most stubborn of makeup. it's a solid cream like substance when it's in the jar. when you scoop it out and rub it inbetween your hands, it warms up to an oil-like consistency that melts away everything! and when you rinse it, it turns into foam. this product has never let me down and it's helped keep my skin nice, clean, and free from breakouts.

Kissme Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara

the best mascara i have ever used!! it's waterproof, smudgeproof...everything proof. makes my lashes nice and long and keeps the volume/curl all day. definitely needs an oil based remover to take off bc this stuff is stubborn.

Kissme Heroine Make Speedy Mascara Remover

the best mascara remover imo. it comes in a handy wand applicator to make sure you coat your lashes evenly. i recommend this to wash off the Heroine Make mascara. it doesnt sting when it gets in your eyes and it's unscented (super important for the sensitive-eye gang) i apply this and let it sit for a minute while i apply the banila cleansing balm to my face/foundation to give it a little bit of time to set in. washes off easy peasy!

Dior Addict Lip Glow Oil in Mahogany

my favorite lipgloss! the color is a faint deep red that can be built up, adds color without being too loud. the gloss itself is fairly thin and not sticky. it has a pretty shine and makes my lips look plump! this lip gloss is a bit pricy ($35 iirc) but even with daily use i still have lots left. this is my daily lip since i've switched from liquid lipstick.

Home Goods

Unbranded Pink Mirror

my favorite mirror...on this list purely because it's SO cute. i get happy every time i see it. i love it so much i have one at home and one on my work desk!!

Dyson V8 Cordless Vacuum

i know, i know. you guys are probably like: really, lapin? a vacuum? but i love this guy so much!!! i'm very petite and extremely weak (LOL) so traditional vacuums are so hard for me to use, it feels like a workout for my arms ngl. but this dyson is super lightweight, and has a thin profile, so it's super easy to manuever! and it comes with many different attachments so you can clean a variety of materials + reach nooks and crannies. it's wireless, so there's no annoying cord and the charge lasts a while unless you set it to HIGH (which then it lasts about 10-15 minutes BUT with how powerful this thing is, i don't ever really see a reason to set it to high unless you have an insanely dirty space to clean.)


Corn Almonds

my wonderful friend sees gifted me a bag of these in a care package exchange we did a while ago. and let me tell you these changed my life!!!!! i am ALWAYS thinking about these lmao! they are coated with a sweet, corn flavor powder and have very crunchy corn bits in them. i could eat these all day.

Monster Energy Ultra Rosa, Sugar Free

i am a caffeine fiend!!! this is my favorite monster flavor. not only is the packaging cute (lol) but i really like the flavor..it doesn't have a very strong "artificial sweetener" taste like the other ones in the ultra line do. it gives me a good and steady boost of energy. it definitely has more of a fruity taste (citrus? grapefruit-ish? it's hard to describe) over a floral taste (which i am not a fan of!!) but some people say they can taste the rose notes in it.

Nespresso Coffee Pods

pretty much the only coffee i will drink at home! there are sooo many flavors and intensities, but my favorites are solelio (a light roast), caramel cookie, and the annual holiday raspberry flavor (sounds weird but i swear it's sooo good with lots of cream and sugar hehe)


IGK FIRST CLASS Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo

the best dry shampoo i've ever used!!! as someone with curly, mixed girl hair that heat styles it very often...it's super important that i don't constantly wash OR repeatedly use a heat tool during the week to maintain strong and healthy hair! so this product is a godsend. i've been able to keep my hair bum-length and shiny because i don't strip it of it's natural oils. a little bit of this stuff goes a long way, it's kind of pricy ($16 per 8 oz.) but it adds volume to 2-3 day old hair while keeping it looking fresh. it's also vegan and cruelty-free!
