Well, it’s that time of year again- the weather is dropping, the leaves are beginning to crisp and- oh wait- it’s still 100 degrees here in Florida!
Regardless, I’m here to bring you the latest + greatest from my adventures in life, and this month, I’ve been obsessed with the products that were inside the InfluenceHer Collective Fall Essentials Box. (This post is sponsored by Her Campus Media. All opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that make Alexa’s Mind possible!)
1. Bliss // Lemon & Sage Body Butter
The first time I tried Bliss’ Lemon & Sage creamy body butter was last spring when my Her Campus chapter hosted a fun giveaway full of these. I seriously fell in love with it and I carry one everywhere. The smaller trial size ones are perfect to put in your purse, backpack, car, and everywhere else you deem necessary. And did I mention it doesn’t leave your skin greasy??
2. Almay // Goddess Gloss
These Almay Goddess Gloss™ are part of the Almay® Cosmic Collection, found exclusively at Ulta Beauty. If you’re the kind of girl that ~loves~ the 90’s and early 2000’s, then these high shine shades are the ones for you! Also, they’re made with pomegranate, grape and raspberry oils which means your lips will feel super smooth all the time. (These are also perfect for a galaxy inspired makeup look!)
I swatched four of the eight shades for you all to see!
3. High Sierra // Elly Backpack
OKAY. The Elly Backpack has quickly become my go-to for everything. It is seriously a *huge* bag- it also has an adjustable drawstring so that you can put as much or as little as you’d like. I’ve been using this bag non-stop for a few weeks now- especially when I’m on my way to work. I can hold everything I need for my job as a character attendant at Disney World (which is a LOT), as well as an extra outfit, my lunch bag, wallet, water bottle, and even my laptop… with room to spare! It has a little sleeve for you to protect your tech and a cute little accessory pouch inside the outer pocket.
4. HCXO shop // Sleep Mask
I’m *THAT* girl- the girl who wears sleep masks to bed, and what’s better than an all-silk MINT COLORED sleep mask? (Hint: practically nothing.)
This sleep mask from the HCXO shop, aka Her Campus’ online store, is super breathable. It even has an inspirational quote on it- and if you know me, you know that quotes about following your dreams always get me emotional (in the best way). When you sleep, you want to feel inspired and ready for the next day, and I can always feel that way when I wear this sleep mask.
5. Garden of Life // Protein Bars
Since I’ve moved to Florida, I’ve been trying my best to stay healthy and make sure that I’m getting enough energy from the meals I eat. Since I’m almost always on the move, these Chocolate Sea Salt GōL Bar and Maple Sea Salt GōL Bars have been a lifesaver! They are full of protein- 12 whole grams of it- and taste SO good! I’ve always been picky when it comes to protein bars, but these definitely make the cut.
And they come in four flavors – Chocolate Coconut, Blueberry, Chocolate Sea Salt and Maple Sea Salt!! My personal favorite is the Maple Sea Salt- it tastes like ~fall~.
I hope this post was able to inspire you to check out these new products this fall! I hope to post more about my adventures in Florida soon.
