September Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the last day of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my September Favorites. I was so busy this month and I feel like I didn’t try a whole lot of new things, but I still have a pretty good mix so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my September BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the Pinky Rose Cosmetics Multi Use Makeup Base Sticks. This is the Duo Hip Hop and Jazz set. I have yet to use the Jazz side, but I have used Hip Hop a couple of times and I’m really liking it. Hip Hop is a cream primer stick and I’ve been using it as an eyeshadow primer. I like it because it’s on the slightly thicker side and once you apply it you can really feel that it’s going to do it’s job. It’s definitely made it’s way into my eyeshadow primer collection and it’s the only one that I have in stick form, so I’ve been reaching for it more purely for the convenience.

My last Boxy favorite is the Half Caked 813 Duo Brush. This brush is 100% synthetic, has a light lavender handle and the brush itself is a a tan shade on the bottom with a brown line in the middle and white fibers on top. This brush is decently soft, and it did sort out it’s shape after being smashed in the box, so it’s fully functioning now. One of the selling features of this brush is it’s supposed to give you an airbrushed finish and it really does. I usually have one or two brushes I use for blush, but this one is quite good and I think it’s decently priced for brush like this.

And my last favorite is the Tarte Fall Feels Palette. I did a separate post on this, which I’ll link below, so I’m not going to talk too much about it. But I will say that I’m in the middle of doing my Three Recent Looks post for it and I’m liking it a lot. These are fun shadows to play with and I definitely recommend giving this palette a try if you haven’t already.

Moving on I have a TV show favorite and it’s the new season of the Great British Bake Off. I love Bake Off, it’s always one of my favorite shows and for the longest time America had to wait to see the seasons but with the deal they have with Netflix we get the episodes a couple days after they air in the UK and I love that. If you’re not watching this season yet, you should be, it’s a good one.

And my last favorite, well favorites, are music favorites. The first is the most recent Little Mix song Love Sweet Love. It’s such a bop, they’re making top tier music like always, but it’s so good and the music video is dreamy. Their costuming and set design is just epic. 

My second music favorite is the most recent Doobie Brothers song American Dream. I’ve had this one on repeat as of late and it has all the hallmarks of a song of summer but you just want to sing along, and I obviously already know all the words. Their new album Liberte is out tomorrow and I can’t wait to hear everything. I preordered it and I’m excited to get it. If the entire album is as good as what’s been released so far we are in for an epic album. 

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

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

July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time do my July Favorites. This month was so busy for me and I feel like it flew by, but I did manage to put together a pretty good mix of favorites.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July BoxyCharm box, and I’ll link that post below if you haven’t read it. My first Boxy favorite is the BellaPierre Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Black. I’ve been using this quite a bit and I like it a lot. It has a tapered and flexible tip so you can easily do a really bold or a really thin line. It has great staying power, once it dries down it’s there all day and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a new liner.

My last Boxy favorite is the Mudmasky Vitamin-Infused Eye Serum. This is a Vitamin C serum for your under eye that nourishes, moisturizes, and firms the skin along with helping to reduce dark circles. I’ve been using this pretty much since I got it because I was intrigued by it and I’ve been seeing Mudmasky everywhere recently, and I can honestly say that I’m really liking it. I’m starting to be able to see a slight difference from before I started using it to now and that’s a very good thing. This is a product I would definitely recommend giving a try.

And my last beauty favorite is the lip liner and lipstick combo I wore yesterday for National Lipstick Day. I looked back at some of my pictures from National Lipstick Day from the past couple years and found it funny that without realizing it, I’ve been doing very different colors every year. What I wanted to do yesterday, because I already had my eyeshadow look done when I realized and was going to do it anyway, it something in the nude/brown area. So what I went with is the Model Co Lip Enhancer Illusion Nude Lip Liner and the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Bombshell. It’s one of my favorite combos for a nude/brown lip and I love the Huda liquid lipsticks, the formula is really nice and you get incredible pigmentation and color payoff.

Moving on to a more random favorite, there is a squirrel that’s been hanging around my backyard for a while, getting more and more bold as he does, and recently he’s been coming up on my deck and chilling, so I’ve started feeding him and I think it’s adorable. He’s a cute little guy and to his credit has only tried to come in house once. And the funny thing is multiple of my neighbors have had similar instances with squirrels over the years, so I’m not surprised this happened.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, actually it’s a couple of songs. This month a lot of good songs came out that I’m enjoying. Little Mix and Anne-Marie’s song is a bop. Bonamassa’s new song is great, I hope that the rest of the album, assuming there will be an album, will follow along the same vibe because that would be nice to hear. And Eric Clapton has released a couple of songs from his 50th anniversary album and I’m liking them a lot. There’s a lot of songs on there that I either don’t know if I’ve listened to, haven’t heard in ages, or just really like and am enjoying like always. If you haven’t given any of these a listen, I definitely recommend doing so. 

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites 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 :).
