Happy June friends!! How on earth is it already June?! I swear this year is flying by (although I feel like I say that every year). Since it’s the start of a new month, I thought it would be fun to start writing a monthly favorites blog post! I always love watching monthly favorites on Youtube and since I don’t have a YT channel, I figured why not write a blog post instead!
It’s gorgeous outside today so I might write a bit, tan a bit then write a bit, tan a bit. Seth and I are going to a movie on the beach thingy (don’t really know what to call it haha!) tonight and I’m really excited for that! Apparently they’re going to have food trucks and bean bag chairs to sit on while watching the movie…um sounds perfect to me! Ok, enough of my rambling…let’s jump into these faves!
P.S. Everything I mention will be linked!! I hope you guys enjoy these new monthly fave posts!
This stuff is unbelievably good. It’s unbelievably expensive, but unbelievably good. So worth the money. I started using this at the beginning of May and I almost instantly noticed a difference in my skin. I use this at night before bed and when I wake up, my skin is plump, moisturized (but not too moisturized that it’s oily) and smooth. It’s basically a magic oil that will make all your skin dreams come true. It’s a serum so be sure to use it before your moisturizer!!
Ok so here’s another Drunk Elephant product (the first one was DE too). Again, it’s super expensive but totally worth it. This is a face oil, so it’s supposed to be used on more concentrated areas. I’ll put the serum on my t-zone area and cheeks, and then put this oil on all my super dry troublesome areas…so basically I use it like a spot treatment. I also put it under my eyes in place of a night eye cream. Highly recommend if you have dry skin or uneven skin tone!!
Now, this thingy might seem kind of gimmicky but trust me it’s not!! I started using this in my morning skin care routine a few weeks ago and I’m still using it every morning (which says a lot because I usually get really lazy with my morning skin care routine). According to the website, “This double-edged pure Jade device was created specifically to help reduce fine line, minimize pores, and tighten the skin to give you a bright youthful glow. It also assists the lymphatic system by helping drain lymphatic fluids and toxins.” I’ve seen a lot of beauty Youtubers use these kind of rollers recently and they all say how amazing they are to keep your skin tight and the blood flowing…basically this roller helping your skin look and stay younger!
There are tons of beauty sponges out there and I’ve tried my fair share of them. I’ve tried the Real Techniques one and the Morphe one. None of them compare to the real beautyblender (not to be dramatic haha!). The beautyblender applies my makeup so smoothly, evenly and seamlessly and it just makes my makeup melt into my skin. If you are looking for a foolproof way to apply your makeup, then grab yourself a beautyblender!!
If you’re in the market for a one piece then you’ve got to go check this one out!! It fits really well…in all the right places if you know what I mean. Right now, it’s 50% off so it’s only $16!! I might actually buy this in a few other colors, it’s that good. Also, these pictures are from my Instagram so if you don’t follow me, come say hi!!
I never thought I’d be into platform shoes but here we are!! I’m now obsessed. Platform espadrilles, platform sneakers…you name it! I love these espadrilles…they’re super cute, super comfy and super affordable!! They’re only $19 which is such a steal! They fit TTS (I’m wearing my normal size, a size 8) and they’re stocked in every size!
I’m sure you all have seen this cami before…it’s been the talk of Instagram for the past 2 months! But I had to jump on the bandwagon and boy am I glad I did!! This cami comes in a ton of different colors and is flattering on everyone! I’m wearing a size small for reference. I love the adorable neckline and cute delicate straps. It’s such an easy top to dress up or down…gotta love a versatile top!
How adorable is this beach coverup?! I absolutely love it and might be wearing it like every day this summer while I’m at the beach. I’m wearing a medium because I like coverups to be a little bit oversized. It’s only $18 and definitely worth checking out if you’re planning on going to the beach/lake/pool/stream/backyard/you get the idea.
If any of you like reading, you have got to read this book. I don’t mean to sound rude, but like, read this book. It will seriously be the best thing you will ever read. I read this about a month and a half ago and it’s my favorite book of all time. It takes place in France during WWII and follows a young wife and her family through the war. I don’t want to say too much more and give it away but it will suck you in, make you feel so many strong emotions, and you’ll be the one recommending it to all your friends after you’re done. I got my mom to read this and she also said it was one of her favorite books! Please read it!! (I know, I’m basically begging you but it’s worth it haha!)
Now, as most of you know, I love food. I love eating healthy and I also love eating junk food. This bar is for all you healthy eaters out there. This flavor in particular is my favorite. Even though it only has a few ingredients and there are no added sugars or fillers, it still tastes delicious!! If you’re craving something sweet, or something to just fill you up, grab one of these RXBARs.
I’m basically obsessed with candles. Fall/winter candles are my favorite but this more summery one from Voluspa is making me start to love spring/summer candles too. It’s really fresh smelling, not too sickly sweet and has a really pretty glass packaging/holder (whatever you call them). Even though it looks super luxurious, it’s only $18! I highly recommend this candle if you don’t like super strong scents and you want something to burn in your house during the spring and summer months!
This is kind of a random one, but I love my coffee and I love when my coffee tastes like coffee. Does that make sense? I can’t drink Keurig coffee anymore because it’s too watered down and doesn’t really have that true coffee flavor. (That’s so extra, I know). I recently discovered Philz coffee and instantly fell in love. It’s a coffee chain…but not any old coffee chain. Their coffee has a really strong coffee flavor, isn’t watered down and is actually very reasonably priced. If you have a Philz Coffee near you (they’re all over CA and in Washington DC) then please go grab yourself a cuppa joe…cheers!
