July Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my July favorites. I have a pretty fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July BoxyCharm box and if you haven’t read that I’ll leave a link below. My first BoxyCharm favorite is the Clean Skin Club Vitamin C Brightening Booster. This has pineapple, watermelon and green tea extracts and it’s supposed to brighten your complexion, protect against UV damage and  help reduce signs of aging. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. I can feel and see a difference in my skin. This also smells really good and it says on their website that it’s good for normal, oily, combination, dry and sensitive skin. So if you’re looking for a new element in your skincare routine I recommend this.

My next Boxy favorite is the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray. I cannot say enough good things about this, I love it. It’s infused with fresh coconut extract so you get that nice tropical, summery smell and has micro pearls so you get a glowy and dewy finish. It also comes out in a really fine mist and I prefer that in a setting spray. This dries down pretty fast and doesn’t leave you with a sticky or tacky feeling, it does lock in your makeup and the glow you get is enough that you can see it but it’s not over the top. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

My last Boxy favorite is the Lavish Quick Color Switch Dry Brush Cleaner. This is a spongey brush cleaner that you swirl your brush on and it removes the pigment. I’ve been using this since I got it and I think it’s a great little tool to have. It picks up the pigment pretty quickly and basically does exactly what it says on the tin. I appreciate that this is easy to clean, you wash it with your favorite cleanser and let it dry before putting it back in the container.

And my last beauty favorite is my 4th of July makeup look. I did do a post all about this look and how I did it, which I’ll link below, but I had a lot of fun with this look and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Moving on I have a gardening favorite and it’s my sunflowers. Last summer I grew sunflowers for the first time, but when I got them they were starts and this year I decided I wanted to try and grow them from seed. I bought a packet of the heirloom sunflowers so when they bloom they should be multicolored, which I’m excited about. This year has been a little rough on them, in the beginning slugs really ate them and I was convinced they weren’t going to grow at all but I searched a ton of different gardening websites and they all recommended using copper tape which I did buy. Since putting the copper tape around my planter the slugs are gone and the sunflowers have really grown and I’m super happy with them.

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is the reissue of Paul McCartney’s Flaming Pie album, this album has also been remastered. Although the massive reissue doesn’t come out in full until July 31st, there have been a few songs released already. Flaming Pie isn’t an album I’ve listened to a lot over the years, I know a small handful of the songs, but I’m excited about the reissue as a whole. There are different versions of the reissue you can get, the lavish collector’s edition includes five CDs, two DVDs and four LPs. The deluxe edition includes five CDs and two DVDs. You can also get individual editions in the form of three LPs, two LPs and two CDs. It will also be on Spotify and other streaming platforms. If you haven’t heard of the Flaming Pie album I would definitely recommend giving it a 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 favorites were.

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

September favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy October! I’m a couple of days late, but today I’m going to be doing my September favorites. I have a pretty good mix of things to talk about, so let’s get into it.

First up we have beauty, I have a couple favorites from my September Sephora Play Box and I will link that below if you haven’t read it. First up we have the Sephora LashCraft Big Volume Mascara in Black. I really like this mascara, it goes on smooth, doesn’t clump and makes my lashes look really full. I would definitely say to check this out if you’re looking for a new mascara.

SSP2

Next we have the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer. This has coconut water and other energizing and replenishing ingredients and it holds up to it’s name. Just a little bit gives you a bright and dewy face and a great canvas for your makeup or to just go about your day.

SSP6

My last beauty favorite is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner in (Earth)Quake. This is a dark chocolatey brown eyeliner, which I love because it not only will go with a ton of different looks but I have green eyes and browns really make them pop. The first time I wore this was a day when I was doing dirty work because I wanted to see how it would stand up and I was impressed. It’s long lasting and it doesn’t smudge. It definitely rates high with me.

SSP4

SSP5

My next favorite is a food favorite and it’s Pepperidge Farm Pirouettes. If you don’t know what these are, they’re crème filled rolled wafers. I was in the grocery store, saw these and had to get them. I hadn’t had these in at least ten years and I always remember eating them around this time of year with hot chocolate, so I thought why not. And I honestly wanted to see if they were as good as I thought. I bought the French Vanilla and they were so good.

Moving on, I have a TV show favorite and it’s the X Factor UK. Out of all the singing competition shows this one is definitely my favorite. This season they have a new crop of judges, Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Ayda Williams and Robbie Williams and I’m loving it. Sometimes when a show brings on new people it doesn’t really flow or it takes a while but I think this really works and it was a good choice. If any of you are watching let me know what you think and who you’re loving. There’s a lot of talent this season.

And lastly I have some music favorites. The first is Paul McCartney’s newest album Egypt Station. I talked about this before it came out because I was loving the singles and it did not disappoint. Top to bottom it’s a fantastic album and I can’t choose just one song that’s my favorite.

My second music favorite is Take That Odyssey. Take That is celebrating their 30th anniversary and to celebrate they are going on tour and releasing a new album titled Odyssey . It has some of classic and fan favorite songs, some that have been revamped and a couple new ones. So far they have released the Odyssey version of Pray, which is one of my favorite Take That songs, and it’s absolutely beautiful. Gary Barlow’s vocals are just incredible.

And my last music favorite is Peaches and Diesel by Eric Clapton. This song is from the Slowhand album, which is for sure one of my favorite EC albums. When I heard it it made me stop what I was doing and really listen, you know those songs that just have that effect on you, and I love every minute of it. I would one million percent say to go and listen to it and everything else that I mentioned. They’re all on YouTube and iTunes.

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

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

August favorites

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing my August favorites. I can’t believe how quickly this month and summer in general has gone. I am ready for fall and everything that comes with it, but this summer has been nice. That being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my August Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that down below if you haven’t read it. My first favorite is the MoroccanOil Dry Texture Spray. I really like this, I’ve used it a couple times since getting it, including today. I put my hair in a bun and wanted a little more volume, which it gave me and I’m happy with it. I would definitely recommend it.

AGSP8

My next beauty favorite is the Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. I don’t always wear an eyeshadow primer, but I’ve been wearing this since I got it and I really like it. It stops my eyeshadow from creasing and it locks in my look all day.

AGSP2

And my last beauty favorite is the Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in C211, Rose Wood. I really like this lipstick, the color is great, it’s highly pigmented and it has a great satin finish. I would definitely recommend it and I’m for sure going to be buying more of these lipsticks.

AGSP4

AGSP5

AGFA1

My next favorite is a food favorite and it’s the Noosa Yogurt single serves and specifically the Vanilla Bean. Noosa Yogurt is one of my favorites and I love that they have them in the little singles now, it’s the perfect amount.

AGFA2

AGFA3

And my last couple favorites are music favorites. The first is something that I’m really excited about and it’s Eric Clapton’s forthcoming Christmas album Happy Xmas. I’ve been saying for 10 years how great it would be if he brought out a Christmas album and I can’t wait to hear it.

My last music favorite is the Beatles song I’ve Just Seen A Face. I’ve always like this song and I recently decided to try and learn it on ukulele and it’s going well. It’s a fast song, but it’s really fun to play.

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 favorites were.

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

July favorites

Hi everyone,

Today as it is the last day of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my July favorites. I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it. The first thing we have is the Caudalie Vinoperfect Concentrated Brightening Essence. You put this on before you do your serum and moisturizer and it removes the dead skin so the serum and moisturizer can really sink in and do what they’re supposed to do. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. I knew it was going to be a great product because it’s Caudalie and they make some of  my favorite skincare products, which you’ll see in an upcoming post. But I would definitely recommend this.

JSP5

Next up we have the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Blush in Paaarty. This is a really pretty nudey pink and it looks great on. I’ve mentioned that I have another one of these, it’s in the shade Feisty, and they are some of my favorite blushes.

JSP2

JSP8

JSP7

And my last beauty favorite is the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask in Natural. I absolutely love this product. I have one that I’ve been using for I don’t know how many months, but it is truly fantastic. I put it on before I go to bed and it leaves my lips feeling really moisturized and smooth. 100% would recommend.

JSP4

Moving on, I have a stationery favorite. I love all things stationery and I’m always looking for a cute new pen and I found one that I absolutely love. This one is marble and rose gold, which is always a great combination. It writes smooth, it’s ball point and it goes with my other stationery bits and pieces. If I can find a link for it I’ll put it down below.

JLY1

My next favorite is kind of a random one, but it’s a variety puzzle book. I used to do these books all the time and I really liked it. I bought this at the grocery store a few weeks ago and I was reminded of why I liked these so much. This is basically one giant contradiction, because I find these to be very relaxing but at the same time I like that they make you think a little and work your brain. But either way, when I’ve had free time lately I’ve been doing this.

JLY2

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s actually two favorites and they’re both concerts. The first one is The Rolling Stones: Havana Moon. This concert took place in Cuba on March 25, 2016 and it was huge. It was a free concert and it was estimated that 500,000 people attended. Admittedly I’m haven’t been the biggest Rolling Stones fan, I do have a couple songs of theirs that I like. But there’s something about this concert, I don’t know what, that changed what I thought. And if they were going to be in town tomorrow I would definitely go and see them.

My second music favorite is Paul McCartney and Wings Rockshow. This isn’t like a regular concert DVD because this one features segments from different shows on the Wings Over the World tour, New York, Seattle and two shows in Los Angeles. The thing that pushed this over the top for me was the fact that there was footage from the Seattle show, which was played in the Kingdome, and my dad was at that concert. He had always told me how great it was, but to actually be able to see it was so cool. And to hear what they were playing back then was great, there were songs I hadn’t heard before. If you haven’t seen either of these concerts before I would highly recommend giving them a watch or listen to the album versions.

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 July favorites were.

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

June favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it is the end of the month, I’m going to be doing my June favorites. This month was really busy for me so I didn’t try a whole lot of new things, but I do have a good mix in here, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my June Sephora Play Box, which I will link down below if you haven’t read it. My first favorite is the Too Faced Melted Matte Liquified Long Wear Matte Lipstick in Queen B. These are some of my favorite lipsticks, the color range is great and I really like the formulation. I’ve been wearing this shade for a while so I was happy to see a product I already loved. It’s a light mauve and it’s quite versatile, it goes well with a ton of different makeup looks.

JNSP6

JNSP7

My next beauty favorite is the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover For Lids, Lashes and Lips. I’ve been using this every night since I got it and I really like it. I wear a lot of long wear makeup products and this takes them right off. And I really appreciate the gentle formula, it doesn’t sting or irritate my skin. I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a new makeup remover.

JNSP4

And my last beauty favorite is the Murad Nutrient-Charged Water Gel. Like the makeup remover, I’ve been using this since I got it and I’m really impressed. I’ve never used a water gel before but it is incredibly moisturizing and it makes my face really soft. If you’ve never used a water gel definitely try it out.

JNSP3

Moving on, I have a TV show favorite and it’s Caribbean Pirate Treasure. It’s on Travel Channel and it follows Philippe Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau, and his wife Ashlan as they go to different destinations, and dive for treasure, ship remains or whatever the situation that has brought them there. My brother told me about this show and I’m glad he did. You guys know how much I love history and this has that and it also has a little bit of mystery. All in all it’s a really fun show.

Before I get to the rest of my favorites, I want to say that I’m still loving Poshmark, a favorite from months and months ago, and I have a range of different products in my closet, so if you guys are interested I’m KyraSage18.

My second to last favorite is a race that just took place, probably the biggest race of the year in any motorsport, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This race takes place at the Circuit de la Sarthe in France every year since 1923 and is always full of drama and excitement and this year was no exception. Whether you watch an hour or the full 24 hours it’s a great event to see.

My last favorite is a music favorite, but not just any music, Paul McCartney’s new music. Paul has a new album coming out September 7th, titled Egypt Station, I have preordered it. But he’s released two songs from it, I Don’t Know and Come On To Me. They are both so different, I Don’t Know is more piano driven and slower while Come On To Me is upbeat and more on the fun rock side. But when you hear them they both sound like classic Paul McCartney. I’m honestly so excited to hear the rest of the album. And if you haven’t heard these two songs I would 100% say to go and listen to them.

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 favorites were.

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