Simple Pleasures

1. Nivea Creme // 2. Essie Good to Go Rapid Dry Coat
Wanted to take a second to capture some little things in life that I'm currently obsessed with. 
Well... "currently" may be a wrong description...
You see, the two items above have been my beauty staples for years. 
In fact, I love them so much that I figured I should spread the wealth. 
I know, I'm SO generous. 

First, an oldie but goodie. 
Nivea creme has been around for ages,
and that's about how long I've been using it. 
The original creme makes my skin as soft as a baby's butt,
and the clean scent never gets old. 
My favorite pastime is to slather this stuff all over my cleanly shaved legs and then roll around in fresh sheets. 
I may or may not do this as I blast Your Body is a Wonderland through my iPod dock. 
Don't judge me. 

As for the Essie top coat,
well, let me just tell you ladies -
this is THE BEST drug store find EVER.
I've always hated painting my own nails because I'm too impatient to ever wait long enough for them to dry,
which always results in about 7 smudged finger nails. 
You guys... this top coat is a godsend. 
Not only does it make my nails look salon-shiny for days,
but it really flash dries the polish so I can be on my way in minutes! 
This is not an exaggeration, nor am I sponsored by Essie. 
I've already gone through two full bottles of this stuff,
and as I was stocking up at Target the other day,
I figured I should tell you all about it, just in case I'm not the only one who suffers from "morning sheet scratches on your nails" syndrome. 
You know what I'm talking about, don't you?

What are your simple pleasures?
Please share, I love trying out new products.

P.S. I'm currently in Vegoose (Las Vegas + Grey Goose, naturally).
Pictures coming next week, but for now you can follow along with me through instagram, @inlovewsandiego
