Currently Loving | Purse vs Pantry

I realize I just did one of these posts not too long ago, but I couldn't wait to share some of these things with you! I enjoy writing posts like these because I can talk about a variety of things all in one post. I have quite a mixed bag on the list for you today! I'm sharing a few items you will currently find in my purse as well as a few items you can find in my pantry. Let's first start with three things in my purse that I'm currently loving. 

First up, this Rosy Lips, Lip Therapy from Vaseline.

I reapply chap stick approximately five times a day. It's pretty ridiculous. Recently I gave this one a try and fell in love. Not only does it moisturize your lips, but it also smells nice, has a pretty rosy tint, and doesn't leave behind a nasty taste. The other great part, it comes in three other versions: aloe, coco butter and original. Do your lips a favor and give this a try!

I love a good bottle of perfume. The packaging is equally as important as the scent in my opinion. Recently I tried this bottle of Ralph Lauren Tender Romance and it smelled heavenly. In high school I use to wear Ralph Lauren but really haven't tried anything since. When I was sent a sample bottle in the mail, I realized I have been missing out on this sweet smelling fragrance. I like to keep mini sample bottles in my makeup bag that way I have one with me whenever I need to freshen up. Plus, they are the perfect travel size. 

I’m obsessed with this lip color from Bite Beauty. It’s perfect for summer and goes with most anything. Lipstick is the answer when you need to add a little something extra to spice up a look. I love a good lip color and this one stays in my bag. To be honest, it actually melted because I never take it out, so now a cue tip is involved. I need to just suck it up and buy a new one.

Moving on to a few things in the pantry that I'm currently loving. This lists changes quite frequently.

I’ve always been a fan of figs. Fresh, dried, baked, you name it. These Nature's Intent Dark Chocolate Figs are coming in a number one on my favorite list right now. They are dangerously good. They provide the perfect amount of sweetness to satisfy a craving. I also consider them semi healthy since the chocolate is dark and it’s still a piece of fruit, right?

Hummus and pita chips make the perfect snack. I love serving them with a cheese plate and a side of fruit. I recently stumbled upon these SoCrisp Pita Chips from Harris Teeter and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty they were. I normally go for Stacey's pita chips, but after trying these, I was converted. They have a lot of flavor, even without dipping them in hummus. 

I’m a salad for lunch kind of girl during the work week, so I’m always looking for new ways to mix things up and a great place to start is with the toppings. I spotted these Simply Dressed Aged Parmesan Baked Croutons in the grocery store the and decided to give them a try. I normally don't buy croutons for my salads because I try to keep the carbs to a minimum with lunch, but I’m so glad that I did.  They add the perfect amount of flavor and crunch to my salads. Coming in at 1.5 grams of fat, 35 calories and 4 carbs in tablespoons, I'd say that's not a bad deal. 

I love discovering new products from others. What are some things that you are currently loving?
