Into It, Vol. 5
🚨🚨🚨 ¡NEW OBSESSIONS ALERT! 🚨🚨🚨 I just realized my "Into It" posts are basically me enabling your futile spending, but I'm not sorry because if I'm going to spend money on things I don't need but just want, so will you. We're in this together, guys. Don't forget that.
So, what am I a one-woman advertisement for this week?
Into It: Senita workout clothes
I have no shame in that new workout clothes serve as a YUGE motivation for my gym habits. Like, yeah gaining muscle and sweating is tight and seeing results is tighter. But you know what's the tightest? NEW PANTS. OR SHOES. OR FUN SPORTS BRAS NO ONE BUT ME WILL EVER SEE. One of the #BBGgirls I follow posted the other week about Senita, so I looked into it and almost immediately bought a pair of capris. Not only are they high-waisted but ALSO👏🏻HAVE👏🏻POCKETS👏🏻. Do you know how much pockets on workout pants change the game? SO MUCH. Oh, and they're so affordable. So basically, the perfect fucking workout bottoms. I got them last week, wore them Monday, and want 13 more pairs. GET SUM.
INTO IT: OAT MILK
Not goat, oat. Oat milk. Now I'm sure you're wondering "WTF? How?" I'll let Bon Appétit tell you how: "It's what happens when you soak steel cut oats or whole groats in water, blend the mixture, and then strain it. The resulting milk-water tastes just like that warm, thin layer of cream that sits atop a bowl of porridge. It's basically the cashmere sweater of winter drinks."
That said, I got a vanilla latte with oat milk this past weekend in Chicago at Intelligentsia and it was the best latte I've ever had in my mouth or life. It had a hint of oatmeal flavoring, thusly making it taste like an oatmeal cookie latte. Moreover, upon further research, I found that oat milk is super good for you. It's a bit more caloric than almond milk, clocking in at 130 calories/cup, BUT it's packed with Potassium, Iron, Protein, Calcium and tons of other amazing nutrients. I found it at Whole Foods yesterday and will be subbing it into my smoothies ASAP. Again, GET SUM. Or TRY SUM.
INTO IT: This song
This popped up on one of my Discover Weekly Spotify playlists, and I couldn't decide if it was terrible or dope. I landed on dope, but you tell me.
INTO IT: THIS TARGET PURSE
I wanted this bag from Everlane because everything Everlane does is perfect and beautiful (like me), but it was a bit out of my responsible price-range so I started looking for more affordable surrogates. Enter Target and this bag. Sadly, it looks like black is sold out/gone forever, but they still have some nice brown shades? This "Into It" is a bust because I didn't know the black was no longer available, so now I feel like a failure. But here's a pic of me this morning with the bag.
Which leads me to my next thing...
INTO IT: TRF jeans by ZARA
My bean pole fashion blogging friend who is super famous, Fashion Jackson, tipped me off to this wonderful line of denim (I'm wearing the jeans up there 👆🏼). It's affordable as all hell, fits great, and is super cute. The entire TRF line is actually. It's like a way cooler, tiny bit nicer XXI situation, if you will. And you should.
INTO IT: Bluetooth Earbuds
Bro. There's nothing worse than earbuds that can't handle you and are constantly popping out while you're crushing it at the gym, AMIRITE? But seriously, it's super annoying. I've dealt with mine for a while, but decided to finally switch them out for a pair that do what their told like any good woman should. I was referred to these ones by my fit AF, triathlete coworker, so I knew they'd be legit and they are. I highly recommend if you're in the market for simple yet effective earbuddies.
INTO IT: Revlon Matte Balm
Two colors of this lipstick were handed to me for free, so I took them. And used them. And love them. Shine is fine, but matte is where it's at™ But really, matte does get dry from time to time so lay on some chapstick before or after application. I have "Passionate" and "Standout" and both are really rich and pretty colors. Plus, it's shaped like a crayon which is always fun and lends itself to even easier administration. P.S. If you care about this sort of stuff (i.e. makeup), did you catch Tuesday's blog where I walked through my daily beauty regime? Do that.
That's it for this week's list of things I'm into right now. If you've had any experience with any of it, hit the comment section and share!
