Snapchat Made Me Do It.

As I looked around my kitchen last night, I couldn't help but notice a horde of things I had purchased because of seeing others use them and/or rave about them on Snapchat. I'm relatively new to Snapchat in so much as I've only been "snapping" for a couple of months or so (and still have no idea what I'm doing) but that hasn't kept me from making a mental list of things I wanted to buy, try, eat and wear thanks to some other savvy snappers. 

I'm usually pretty good at refraining from instantly purchasing something when I come across it on social media (I learned that lesson well after the chevron craze) but I'm blaming the recent arctic temperatures and less than stellar attitudes of my three little heathens for my most recent purchases. Perhaps you're in need of a little retail therapy too in which case I'm happy to be sharing my haul with you.

1. e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator
Ever since I started adulting several months ago and applying my make up like a big girl, I've been looking for a good lip scrub to use instead of my previous method of warm water and an old toothbrush. I had been eyeing the tinted LUSH brand lip scrub but wasn't super stoked about it so when I saw someone post about this clear exfoliator from e.l.f, I didn't hesitate to click "buy" on Amazon. I love that it's in a lipstick tube and how I can roll it on without using a brush or my fingers. It goes on smooth and does the trick beneath the lipstick I wear each day. Love it!

2. ASOS Cardigan with detachable fur collar
Lynzy was cleaning out her closet and as soon as I saw her list an ASOS cardigan similar to the one posted below, I immediately headed to the website and took a screen shot of this cardigan. I had been on the hunt to add a little faux fur to my wardrobe and the fact that this fur collar is removable was an added bonus. It's basically like buying two sweaters for the price of one. Rather than buy it totally on impulse I let it sit in the queue of browsers I keep open on my phone for several days and finally made the purchase two days ago. I can't wait to see how it looks on (this fluffy mom of 3 who looks nothing like that model down there ;))

3. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette
I love following Meg O. on Snapchat and Instagram mostly because I want her to come do my makeup for me every morning. I've followed Meg for YEARS and met her at a blogging conference a while back and she continues to be one of my daily reads. When my original Naked palette finally bit the dust, I purchased this one and I'm so glad I did! Now when I have fifteen minutes to myself each day I chug hot coffee and play with make up and I'm a much better mother for it.

4. Coffee Break Bliss by Chobani Flip
Snapchat didn't introduce me to the Chobani Flip but it did make me try this new flavor and I'm downright obsessed. You had me at biscotti bites and chocolate chunks and this may or may not have been last night's dinner. So good.

5. TOMS Majorca Peep Toe Bootie
Okay, so I didn't buy this one for myself but I did slyly suggest to my husband that it would make for an excellent Valentine's Day gift. It's no secret that I have a major bootie/shoe-tie obsession and with Spring on the horizon, I've been wanting to expand my collection to feature some Spring-worthy styles. Thanks to several stylish Snapchatters I follow, I'm hoping these make their way to my closet sometime soon.

6. Yeti Coffee Tumbler
I can count on two hands the number of expertly staged naps I've seen with perfectly manicured hands holding this tumbler while sitting parked in their car. Advertising at it's finest, am I right? This one actually wasn't for me but a gift for my husband for Valentine's Day. That said, I may just need to get one for myself now that he has one and probably won't want to share. 
I think it's safe to say I'm a fantastic target audience. Sheesh! Maybe I need to step away from snapping for a little while.. 
Your turn! What has the Internet made you do/try/buy lately?

  1. I would love to see a list of Snap-chatters to follow. I feel like I might be on the cusp of "getting" Snapchat, but find it difficult to find people to follow. I have a weekly debate in my head of "Snapchat is cool, I kind of get it" and "This is a waste of time, delete this app."

  2. UMMm same! Kate from the small things blog every single time she talks about a product on Snapchat ....I am like "oh I need that right now" haha

  3. Um, after seeing one of my favorite bloggers on Insta with a red tip french manicure- decided to try it myself. Love it.
