Five Items Under Fifty

JCrew spring bagToday I’m linking up and sharing Five Items Under Fifty that I can’t live without. I have to admit, I wasn’t completely honest here. I forgot to share my most important little luxury under fifty bucks—my caffe americano. Without the caffeine rush from this bad boy, I’m likely hiding from my kids in the pantry stuffing my face with cheese curls.

Here are five of my favorites under fifty (you can shop them below) and be sure to check out the other link up participants below for other great little luxuries.

Everlane Tee
The best t-shirt. You cannot beat these tees for $15. They look great with everything and I typically go one size up for a more relaxed fit. They are also super soft and wash really well unlike so many other tees that I have bought.

Skin Ceuticals UV Defense
I love this stuff and have been using it forever. This sunscreen does not make you greasy or shiny at all. I simply mix it with my current day time lotion to ensure that I have sunscreen on every day.

Rosebud Salve Lip Balm
Guys, I’ve tried them all and this is my favorite lip balm. It won’t cake up and it keeps your lips nice and soft. I always have one of these on me.

Zip Pouch
It’s very likely that my favorite balm is located in this pouch somewhere. These are so cute and great for keys, lip balm, etc. They also function great as a clutch or I have started putting gift cards in these so I don’t lose them. Super versatile!

Nail Polish
I wish I could say that I have my nails polished on a regular basis, but let’s get real, I don’t. These are my favorite though and when I get a chance to treat myself to a pedicure, you better believe I’m using these.

    I am such a sucker for Rosebud Salve. I discovered that at Sephora when I was probably 16 and still love it to this day!

    Everlane tees were one of my picks too! I love all their stuff. On more than one occasion each month as I browse their site I find myself saying out loud, “Ugh, take all my money already!”
