Meet 21-year-old Arizona State University student, Olivia Raiff! This artistic babe is sharing her top 5 favorite things in the Valley. Follow Olivia on Insta!
Fave #1 – Swell Bottles
My little gold Swell bottle never leaves my side in this Arizona heat. Hydration is key for brain function and great skin, and such an important necessity should look equally as chic. They come in many sizes and SO many cute patterns and colors.
Fave #2 – HB Wellness
Up in North Scottsdale is the best protein smoothie shop in the Valley. Everyone who works there is super welcoming and it’s the perfect place to grab a great tasting shake and do some work or catch up with friends. They have over 70 imaginative flavors (my favorite right now is French Toast) and if you’re there during the week they have a $5 happy hour from 4-6!
Fave #3 – Aztec Clay
Blackheads and acne flare-ups were the bane of my teenage years and Aztec Clay is the best, and most affordable, product I found to get rid of any unwanted spots! The clay comes as just a dry powder which you mix with water (or my fave: Apple Cider Vinegar) for the perfect in-home spa treatment. Not only does it work miracles, but it lasts forever!
Fave #4 – Covergirl Clean Fresh Skin Milk
Ask any of my friends, I will not shut up about this foundation! It’s my best find of 2020 so far and I will be wearing it all year long. This foundation feels light on your skin like a tinted moisturizer but has an impressive buildable coverage that looks like your own skin – just BETTER. It’s cruelty free, vegan, and has no parabens or sulfates. Are you sold yet?
Fave #5 – Flat Brimmed Felt Hats
This classic hat can be found at any chic clothing store and for good reason, they’re adorable! It is my go-to hat to step up any outfit and also the cutest way to cover up that day-old hair.
