I love the drag & drop feature of Showit mainly because when I create I want to put things where I want - I don't want to be confined to a table or certain structure. The ability to create and design in this platform is AMAZING, and the community of designers are amazing.

I'm not a reader, but this one was gold! I love the way he thinks about finances, and his snowball method is the best!

These are the best! The number one thing I love is taking out one and having it pause anything I'm listening to. It sounds a bit diva....but I appreciate that function SO much!

If you have dogs that bark as soon as you say 'hello', this is your new best friend. It is 100% safe for your dog, and lets out a noise that they only hear. It distracts them, and it's amazing.

If you can't find the best lighting, you need a ring light. This one has a phone holder and you can dim it if you want.

Fact: I'm the worst with paper planners. This one I have found is the best though for goal planning and weekly planning.

This foundation is SO light and airy! It was amazing when I tried it the first time, and I couldn't believe the air brush finish it leaves. Apply with my FAVORITE Kabuki brush.

If you have skin on the more dry side, and don't like a ton of make-up - this is for you! SO moisturizing, and gives you a dewy finish. You can apply it with your fingers or use a brush. I top mine with powder too!

After I exfoliate, everything is so much better! My skin looks better, it feels better, and my makeup goes on SO much smoother. I keep this exfoliating mask in the shower so it's super easy for me!
