5 Little Luxuries


Let's be real, we've all gotta treat ourselves every now and again, right? 
It may seem dramatic, but these 5 guilty pleasures get me through my week. I am so appreciative of these small luxuries and find true moments of happiness when I incorporate each one into my daily routine.  

1. Starbucks - Grande cold brew with two pumps of vanilla and a splash of milk - Amen.

I bet 9 out of 10 of you are with me here. Yes, there's coffee in my office, and yes we received just about every fancy coffee machine under the sun for our wedding. But there is something so enjoyable about my daily morning ritual which commences with a visit to my local Starbs. The baristas know my name and my order (how I know I've truly made it) and that little caffeinated jolt gets me ready to tackle my google cal and whatever else is thrown at me that day. This little treat simply starts my day off on the right foot. 
Does it all add up? That's a big fat yep! But is it worth it? Affirmative.

2. Splurge worthy sheets. Now stay with me here for a moment. These took some convincing in my household, but once we had gone high-end on our bedding, neither of us have ever looked back. DID YOU KNOW we spend 33% of our entire lives sleeping?!? How crazy is that stat? So, it makes total sense to indulge in your bedding. You get the best night sleep and function as the best version of yourself the next day. Win. Win.
Legacy Linens are my absolute favorite, but you can also never go wrong with classic Matouk.

3. La Mer - Sure this little pot is pricey, but it really keeps my skin in the best condition possible. Also, its important to note a little goes a long way. I honestly go through about 1 pot per year, so when you break it down, the investment really isn't that crazy, right? That's how I rationalize it at least.

4. It's a 10 - no but really, it is. I have blogged about this miracle product before, and it's still on full rotation in my beauty routine. I got a keratin treatment a few years back which was life changing, and this little gem keeps the smoothness going.

5. A great candle. This is a MAJOR must have for me. I have to have a strong-scented candle lit while showering and also in the evening when I am winding down. I was actually so bummed this past week when I found out my favorite Jo Malone scent was discontinued, and just after I finished my last candle!!. (Please bring back the French Lime Blossom candles!). So now I'm on the search for a new favorite - Any suggestions?? (I've heard this one is incredible).

What are your 5 must-have little luxuries to get you through the week?
