April Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the last day of April, I thought today would be the perfect day to do my favorites. I think that 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 April Sephora Play Box, I’ll leave a link to that down below if you haven’t read it. The first is the Clinique Pep-Start Eye Cream. I’ve been using an eye cream that I really liked but I was interested by this because I’m a big Clinique fan. And since I started using it I’ve not been disappointed. It hydrates, brightens and I feel like I look more refreshed. So this now has a permanent spot in my skincare cabinet.

My second Sephora Play favorite is the Make Up For Ever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer in Smoothing Primer. I really like this, it smells good and it’s lightweight. It also really locks in my makeup and when I put it on I feel like it really gives me an extra nice surface to work with. If you’re looking for a new primer I would say definitely check this one out.

APB7

My last Sephora Play favorite is the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Treatment in Dream. I put this on before I go to bed and the next morning I can see/feel the difference. My lips are very moisturized and they have a slight plump to them. This also smells really good and there’s a slight pink tint to it so if you wanted to wear this during the day you’d get a little color.

And my last beauty favorite is hairstyle. I got bored a few weeks ago and wanted to change up my bun a little so after I pulled my hair into a high ponytail I decided to braid it then shape it into the bun and I’m really happy with how it turned out. APRF3

Next I have a fashion favorite and it’s this off the shoulder light blue top with little flowers on the sleeves from H&M. I bought this a little while and hadn’t had a chance to wear it yet, so when Easter came around I figured it was a good time. And I finished this look with a pair of white wedges. I don’t know if you can still get this top but they have quite a few other off the shoulder options.

APRF6

Moving on I have a food favorite and it’s Meiji Hello Panda cookies. I was at the grocery store a few weeks ago in the Asian food section looking for Pocky and I saw these next to it on the shelf. And they’re little cream filled cookies that are shaped like pandas and have pandas doing various activities on them. I bought them in strawberry and in the store they also had chocolate, which I want to try and I believe there are other flavors you can get online. But they’re really good and a fun little snack.

APRF4

APRF5

My second to last favorite is a puzzle I did at the beginning of the month. You guys know how much I love puzzles. This one is 1,000 pieces and it took me a little longer to complete than the last one I did but most of the pieces are similar color, which in the grand scheme of things I appreciate. But this is a Thomas Kinkade and it’s a winter scene. Thomas Kinkade puzzles are always so pretty and I have a few sitting in my Amazon cart right now.

APRF1

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s the Doobie Brothers Brotherhood album. This album falls into that time period of the band’s music that I didn’t previously know a lot about and I only recently got into. And let me tell you, this album in my opinion, is super underrated. I mean top to bottom it’s full of fantastic, well written, well produced songs. If you haven’t ever listened to it, I would 100% 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 you favorites were.

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

March Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought I would do my March 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 March Sephora Play Box. If you haven’t read that there will be a link down below. My first Sephora Play favorite is the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. I’ve mentioned a few times that Amika is one of my favorite brands when it comes to hair products and this dry shampoo didn’t disappoint. It not only made my hair feel refreshed but it was soft and it gave me nice volume. And this didn’t leave any residue like some dry shampoos can.

MRSP5

My next favorite is the Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna. I knew as soon as I swatched this I would love it and I have been. I’ve been using this most days since I got it and now it’s got a permanent spot in my makeup bag. It’s got a great glow when the light hits it, the amount of sparkle is perfect and I love the color. It’s perfect for spring/summer and like I thought originally, very buildable. If you haven’t checked out Nars Bronzers I definitely recommend doing so.

MRSP8

MRSP7

MRSP6

My last Sephora Play favorite is the Maison Margiela Replica By The Fireplace fragrance. This not only smells good but it wears really well. When I first smelled it I was immediately brought to sitting around the fire and roasting marshmallows with friends. It’s woody and spicy but also sweet and vanillay. This is a fragrance that you can definitely wear all year long because it’s so well balanced.

MRSP9

My last beauty favorite is my makeup look from St. Patrick’s Day. I wanted to do something fun and festive but I don’t have a lot of green eyeshadow, I am going to order the ColourPop Just My Luck Palette though. So I did a gold eye, I used three golds, blended for 100 years until I liked it, and did an emerald shade on my lower lash line. I’m overall really happy with how it came out.

MRF4

Moving on, I have a fashion favorite and that is the Crystabel Sneakers from JustFab. I was browsing through their website recently and found myself looking at sneakers which is something I don’t have a lot of. One thing I’m never opposed to is expanding my shoe collection. I was looking at a few different pairs, but I feel in love with these and because I’m a popular size, I bought them immediately. They come in three different colors, white, black and rose gold and I bought the rose gold. They have white stars, white on the back and white laces. I’ve worn these once since getting them and not only are they super comfortable, but they go with pretty much everything.

MRF2

MRF3

I have two kind of random favorites, the first is puzzles. I’ve always loved doing puzzles, I grew up doing them and recently I got back into it. I completed this puzzle in a few days, mostly working on it before I went to bed, and I was so happy when it was done. This is a 1,000 piece Dowdle Folk Art London puzzle and every time I looked at it I discovered something new. I really like the style of the Dowdle Folk Art puzzles, so I’m going to look and see what else they have.

MRF1

My next kind of random favorite is baseball. Yesterday was Opening Day and baseball is officially back. The Mariners had a little bit of a different start because they played their first two official games in Japan, which was cool. But they were able to start this season at home yesterday and win! Which was super exciting and really fun. This year it’s basically a whole new team, but I’m excited to see how this season is going to play out.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s Jeff Lynne’s ELO Alone in the Universe album. This isn’t an album that I listened to a lot when it came out, but recently Spotify has been playing me a lot of the songs and I’ve really been enjoying it. Top to bottom it’s a great album, I don’t think I could pick one song that’s my favorite but When I Was A Boy and All My Life have been playing a lot. If you haven’t heard it, 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 March :).

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 :).
