July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought today would be the perfect day to talk about my July favorites. I have an interesting mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July Sephora Play Box, I’ll of course link that post below if you haven’t read it. And my Play favorite is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover for Lids, Lashes and Lips. You guys know how much I love this. I’ve been using it for ages and it not only takes off every stay proof, waterproof, long lasting bit of makeup, but it does so with a gentle formula so there’s no scrubbing or irritation.

Next up we have the Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glace. Again, this is something I’ve been using for a little while and it’s just so good. This particular shade is like a dusty mauve and it’s so pretty. These lip crayons are super pigmented and really long wearing. I have quite a few Bite Beauty products and honestly they’re all great. If you’ve never checked them out then I highly recommend doing so.

My last Play favorite is the Marc Jacobs Fragrances Daisy Love Eau So Sweet. This is a scent that I would describe as very summery. It’s floral, fruity and just a little bit sugary, which is perfect. This isn’t one of those perfumes that you have to worry about being completely faded by the end of the day, it wears well and lasts a long time. I definitely recommend smelling this if you haven’t and you get the chance.

My second to last beauty favorite is the Pantene Intense Rescue Shots. I received this first in my Walmart Beauty Box, link below, and in my Target Beauty Box later, link below. So I figured I would give it a try. I take pretty good care of my hair so I didn’t know if it would really do a lot, but I have to say that I’m impressed. You use this after you’ve shampooed and conditioned and you apply it from the middle of your hair to the ends. It’s purpose is to target any damage you may have and to help prevent split ends, what I’ve noticed is that the portion of my hair I applied it has been softer than normal and I quite like that.

And my last beauty favorite is Aloe Vera. Earlier this month I was doing something I’m going to talk about later in this post, outside in the heat of the day, for a long period of time, and I got the worst sunburn I’ve had in a really long time. It was so red and so painful and using aloe absolutely saved me. It ended up not peeling and actually turned into a nice little tan.

My next favorite is a book and it’s Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. I talked about the show adaptation in my favorites last month and after watching and loving that I decided that I had to read the book. I absolutely loved it, it was so funny and now I fully understand why so many people have loved this book for so long. It’s just fantastic. I 1000% recommend reading it if you haven’t and watching the show because David Tennant and Michael Sheen are incredible and do an outstanding job of bringing the characters to life.

Moving on, my next favorite is my sunflowers and the planter box I built for them, aka the thing that caused my sunburn. Back in June a neighbor of mine told me she had some extra sunflower starts that she didn’t have a use for and I very happily took them off her hands. I knew that sunflowers like to root pretty deep and have space to grow so I decided to build my own planter box. It came out so good, I’m super happy with it and the sunflowers have been thriving since I put them in there. I have to give a shout out to my dad for helping me with this because my woodworking experience is limited.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s the song Superstitious by Europe. I feel like Europe is a band that gets forgotten about/people don’t know has more songs than Final Countdown. But my discovering this song was totally random, it popped up in my recommended on YouTube and I’m glad I clicked because I really like it. I listen to a lot of music and this song has one of, in my opinion, the best guitar solos. It’s just so good. And I would definitely say to give this song a listen if you haven’t, it’s pretty great.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your July favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great July :).

June Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my June favorites. I have quite a few things I loved this month, and a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my June Sephora Play Box and I will link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first Sephora Play favorite is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. I mentioned that I had never used a lip sleeping mask, so I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I really like this one. You put this on before you go to bed and when you wake up you remove the remaining product and you’re left with really smooth and moisturized lips. This also smells really good and I definitely recommend it.

JUSP5

Next we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I’ve been using this primer off and on for a while now and it’s one that I really like. It has marine plant extracts, turmeric and hyaluronic acid which helps to really wake up your skin and it gives you a great base to work with. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea line has a ton of great products and this is a primer that I always recommend.

JUSP3

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream. I’ve been slowly incorporating this into my skincare routine and I’m really liking it. It’s really light, sinks into the skin pretty quickly and I feel very moisturized.

JUSP4

Moving on, I have a jewelry favorite and it’s these earrings. I did a whole post about them and I’ll link that down below. But basically they’re from Earfleek and I like them a lot. They’re simple but I think they add the perfect little bit to a look.

EF5

Next I have a racing favorite and it’s the 24 Hours of Le Mans. One of the biggest races of the year, it takes place at the Circuit de le Sarthe, Le Mans, France and this was the 87th running. I watched most of it, like I try to every year, and it was very exciting and there was a lot going on like in any endurance race and then there were some not so great moments. But I would one thousand percent recommend watching it if you never have.

My last kind of random favorite is a TV show, Good Omens on Amazon Prime. I had been seeing ads for Good Omens everywhere and it looked kind of interesting so I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did because it’s brilliant and I absolutely loved it. I think the casting was absolutely perfect and I love the humor that it brings. The only thing that I didn’t like is that’s it’s only six episodes because I wanted more, but being based off of a book, I understand. And now I’m going to read the book because I’m interested to see how it translated and because the book has great reviews. I absolutely, 10/10 recommend it.

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is the song Holy Mountain by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. This song came out of nowhere, it popped up randomly on my Spotify and I’m happy I did it. This was my first Noel Gallagher experience and because I liked this one so much I’ve been having a little look through his music and finding songs I quite like. The song Rattling Rose from his new album Black Star Dancing is a great listen.

My second music favorite is The Doobie Brothers Live from the Beacon Theater. This concert was recorded in November of 2018, the first time in 25 years they had played there and this concert is special because they played their albums Toulouse Street and The Captain and Me. PBS showed a handful of the concert recently and it was great. I know The Captain and Me pretty well but I only knew a couple songs from Toulouse Street so it’s been great to hear some of these songs for the first time. I did preorder the 2CD set and the Blu-ray, the 2CD, DVD and 2CD + DVD is being released on June 28th and the Blu-ray on July 12th. So I’m really excited to watch and listen to the full concert and I highly recommend giving it a watch/listen.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites this month let me know and if not I’d love to know what your June favorites were.

Until next time, enjoy your favorites and I hope you had a great June :).
