Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Today, I'm sharing Five Favorites and I hope y'all love these things just as much as I do. This post includes my favorite taco place, a budget friendly heat protectant for your hair, the best faux leather leggings, my go-to coffee drink, and the best all-natural deodorant that I love!

If you are local to the Asheboro area then you already probably love The Taco Loco, too. It's one of the newest (and best) additions to the Downtown Asheboro area. I absolutely love the steak and chicken tacos plus you've gotta try their fresh guacamole! If you are within driving distance, it's worth the drive to try this place out. It's delicious!

I have been using a much more expensive heat primer on my hair before I blow dry, straightener, or curl my hair. But, I found myself not using it as generously as I should because well, it was expensive and I didn't want to run out of it too fast. So, I went on the hunt to find a more budget friendly option that worked. This one not only works great at protecting my hair but it also smells really good, too!

I bought these faux leather leggings almost exactly two years and they are still going strong! I was scared of the price tag at first but after reading all of the great reviews, I decided to give them a try. During the fall and winter, I literally wear them at least once a week! They are great for dressing down with sneakers and a hoodie but they work equally as well with over the knee boots and a sweater. So versatile! I went with my true size because I like how they hold you in but if you want them to be a little looser in the waist, size up one size.

On Wednesdays, I go to one of my favorite local spots to get some work done and grab some caffeine. My go-to coffee drink is an oat milk latte! I don't like an overly sweet latte so I just order a plain latte with oat milk. It's just very slightly sweet and super creamy. I love it!

A year and half ago, I switched completely to natural deodorant. Honestly, I was super nervous to make the switch because I was afraid that I would stink. But, I've had a great experience and I would never not use natural deodorant now. I often see that others are struggling with making the switch and the biggest tip I have is to do arm pit masks. Yes, I know that sounds super weird but it's game changing! Mix apple cider vinegar with bentonite clay to form a paste. Apply the paste to your air pits and allow to dry (I usually leave it on for at least 15-20 minutes). Yes, you should leave your arms up for best results. Then, wash it off. I do this once a month or so. It's kind of like a face mask for your arm pits. I would highly recommend the arm bit mask before trying any type of natural deodorant! I have used a few different natural deodorants but Native is by far my favorite. You can even create your own custom scent, which is what I always do!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
