The Random Items I Use Every Day

Do you ever realize that there are certain things you use every. single. day?

My friend, Hillary, posted this a couple of weeks ago and I really enjoyed it! It got me thinking about the items that I use EVERY single day, sometimes without even realizing it.

Dry shampoo

I know people joke about how much dry shampoo they use, but for me…it truly is a lot. Even when I get out of the shower, I add a little dry shampoo once my hair is air dried for some texture (a tip I learned from my stylist, Andrew at Spoke & Weal). My absolute favorite dry shampoo is Drybar. The scent alone is reason enough to purchase it, but it really works best for my hair. Since I go through dry shampoo fairly quickly, it does add up. I recently tried Batiste Dry Shampoo (and Elle has the cherry scent, which is heavenly), and it’s a pretty decent option.

First Aid Beauty Intensive Lip Balm

My lips are FOREVER chapped. I have no idea what it is, but they’re never smooth for more than like 2 days. Luckily, I found FAB’s Intensive Lip Balm a year or so ago (thanks to Elle), and my life is changed. A few swipes of this and my lips are relieved of chappy-ness (yup, just made up my own word).


I realized I don’t leave the house without my iPad anymore. It’s my favorite thing right now — for reading and staying organized!


As a New Yorker, it’s truly SOOOOO important to always have your MetroCard on you. Who knew that a little plastic card could be so important to someone! I even always make sure I have a few back up MetroCards in my bag with me (because ain’t nobody got time to pay $1 + your balance for a brand new card).

Big, big, big mug

I’ve always been such a tea drinker. Recently, I’ve been using this HUGE mug (that my sister and I would use for soup when we were younger…so you know it’s that big). I could drink tea all day every day, it’s seriously so calming and relaxing for me.


Every. Damn. Day. I often get asked why I wear sunglasses so much in my photos. Well, 1. Then I don’t need to worry about my eyes looking crazy in over half the photos because #efficient and 2. I actually love wearing sunglasses in real life LOL. My current favorites are my brand new Celine sunnies!

What are three  (or more) items YOU use every day?


do it for the ‘gram

  • Anyone else ALWAYS read the book before the movie?👋🏻 The Sun is Also a Star by @nicolayoon has been on my To Be Read list for a while, and I'm also SO excited for the movie to come out in May🙌🏻 Luckily, @getunderlined hooked me up with the move tie-in addition of the book - so now I get the best of both worlds😍 If you're unfamiliar with the book, it's about a boy and a girl whose paths have crossed unexpectedly. But given their family situations, they're an unlikely match. I can't wait to see what unfolds for them🧐 #GetUnderlined #TheSunisAlsoAStar #ReadItBeforeYouSeeIt [ad]
  • Spring in New York City💛 What’s better? (Ok, fine maybe I think Fall is better...but whatevaaaa whatevaaa🤐)
