I have done posts like this in the past but I always think posts like this are so fun! I love to hear what people are obsessing over and loving. So today, I want to share 10 things I can’t live without! I would love for you to share some of yours in the comments! Not to say my house, husband, child, and things like food and water aren’t mentioned. But obviously I can’t live without those!

10 Things I Can’t Live Without

Ice Breakers Mints: So I know this is weird but I am obsessed. When I did Invisalign I had permanent retainers put behind my top and bottom teeth so gum chewing isn’t ideal. But I love mints. I probably go through a container every two days.

Phone/iPad/Airpods: I know this is cheating putting it all together, but I feel like since they are all Apple products it works right? So I got Airpods about a year and some change ago for my 34th birthday. At first I was worried I would hate them but I LOVE THEM! They are seriously the best headphones I have ever owned. I use them every day. My iPad is an iPad mini and about 4 years old. I probably will never get a different one until this one full on dies because the size is perfect. It’s what I use to read books and do work on the go. My iPhone is self explanatory. I literally couldn’t function without it.

Sunglasses: This may be kind of silly, but I love sunglasses. It’s hard for me to drive without them and I hate having the sun in my face. These are my current favorites and also these.

A book: I always have my iPad with me so I can read if I get a minute and I try to read before bed every night. It really calms me down and helps me sleep better. You can find all my book recs here.

Podcasts: I have written tons of posts about the podcasts I love. But my love for podcasts really runs deep. I listen to them in the car, while I do stuff around the house, while I work, while I workout, etc. I just think they are so much more fun than listening to music and really make everything fly by.

Barre classes: I have been a barre devotee sine 2010 which is crazy! I am back going to the original studio I started going to barre at and I am loving it for pregnancy. It’s such a great full body workout and I also love doing it at home!

Living Proof Dry Shampoo: I have tried lots of dry shampoo and this is for sure my favorite. I think for me this is the one that makes my hair feel the cleanest when it REALLY needs it.

Lip products: I probably have no less than 5 lip products in my bag at all times. I keep some on my nightstand, on my vanity in my bathroom, in my car, everywhere. My favorites are this Laneige one, this one from Fresh, and this La Mer one.

Glossier Mascara and Boy Brow: I have tried TONS of Glossier products and while I think they are all great the boy brow and the mascara are two of my favorites. I have turned tons of my friends and YOU GUYS(!!!) onto them both. The mascara was my top selling item from my blog 3 months in a row. It’s that good!

Skincare: I know it’s kind of cheating but I couldn’t pick one product. For my current clean skincare routine check this post out which lists all my current products.

Tell me one item you can’t live without below!

    1. Live Learn Better

      Your list are quite exhaustive and interesting. Can anyone in this day and age even survive without a phone? That gadget is a life saver for many people and that’s just what it is.

      I’m with you on sunglasses. I can never go anywhere without them. Also I can’t live without my phone [my husband hates this about me]. Lol

      I can agree with sunglasses and books! Although, my sunglasses are prescription so I just have the one pair, but I won’t go outside without it. Along the lines with books, I couldn’t live without my kindle reader.

      What a great list! I could probably live without my phone but I wouldn’t want to lol Coffee is definitely on the top of my list.

      I cannot live without music. Without music, I think I would go insane and life would be boring. It is like my best friend, my therapist, and my lover at the same time.

      It is true I also enjoy owning and using daily a lot of things, but strangely enough, life has taken me to a place where I honestly could give up to many things without a problem. For instance, I used to think I couldn’t live without coffee, but now I haven’t drunk a coffee in years, so in the end, I could!

      I love this list! I’m with you on the phone and a book. I’ve never used Glossier mascara. I’ll have to try it!

    8. Kristen

      I would have to say that living proof dry shampoo is on my list too! That and my iPhone because of my social and work life.
