Recent Favorite Purchases

 Hello, lovelies! How is everyone? I recently had my birthday! I was able to spend time with my friends and family which was so lovely. I posted more about that on my Instagram account if you're interested in seeing more on that! 

Today, I wanted to do another quick recap on some of my recent favorite purchases. These following items are definitely worth checking out, either for yourself or someone else!


This burgundy cardigan from Pink Lily is definitely way up there on my list of new favorite purchases! It is quite oversized so I was able to order a size down when I saw that my preferred size was out of stick. It also comes in a variety of colors if burgundy isn't your jam. I'm also a huge fan of this satin button up for the office and this ribbed tank top for those leisurely days. Finally, I absolutely love this purple and white checkered dress, so much so that I wore it for my birthday brunch!



I have been needing a new lunch bag to take to work for the longest time, so I was very pleased when I came across this insulated leopard print lunch bag. It is just big enough to hold enough for lunch without being overly bulky or obstructive. The insulation is a great addition, too. If you're on the hunt for a good lunch bag, I'd definitely recommend trying that one out! Also, for my birthday this year, I was so lucky enough to find a Louis Vuitton Orsay listed for resale! It was absolutely my birthday gift to myself but I am so happy I treated myself to it. Pro Tip: if you've ever wanted to purchase a luxury item, I'd always encourage buying secondhand if possible! A lot of secondhand and reselling websites offer free authentication services, and it's a great way to save some money in the long run! If you're interested in this specific bag, I have a few options available herehere, and here! Or, if you're wanting a similar, inspired version, check out the bags available herehere, or here!

Self Care

I don't know about you guys, but there is just something so pleasing about taking a hot shower with a bundle of eucalyptus hanging nearby. If you've never tried it, it's really worthwhile! Eucalyptus is really helpful to use in an aromatherapy sense, and I find that it helps me feel super relaxed. Plus, it has also helped me clear out my sinuses if when I've had a head cold! If you're looking for an ethical and sustainable supplier of eucalyptus, lavender, and more, check out Self Care Shower and use code LOTUSLLY for 10% off. I'm really loving using this body scrub in the shower, as well! It smells very citrus-y without being overpowering and it leaves my skin glowing. Last but not least, this budget and expense planner has been super helpful in managing my finances. With the holidays coming up, I felt I needed an easy to use and effective method to help me keep track of everything financially as I tend to buy lots of gifts for people. This tracker has been a great tool to do just that!

And with that, we have reached the end of my most recent favorite purchases! What have you been loving lately? Is there anything specific you'd recommend? Let me know in the comments!
