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 :).

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 :).

March favorites

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing my March favorites. It’s crazy how fast March went by but here we are and I think I have a 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, which I will link below if you haven’t read yet. The first is the bag itself, It’s blue tie dye and it says ‘Beauty Is My Spirit Animal’ in white lettering and it has dark blue drawstrings. The theme for this month was Festival of Beauty and it really came through with both the design and the products.

MPB1

My next beauty favorite is the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. This eye liner is absolutely fantastic and I can 100% understand why so many people love it. This is definitely going to be staple in my makeup bag.

MPB5

My second to last beauty favorite is the Amika Nourishing Mask. I used this in my hair two days ago and I’m really happy with it. Not only does it smell amazing, but it has made my hair extra soft. Definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a good hair mask.

MPB7

And my last beauty favorite is the Bobbi Brown Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm. You put this on before you put your makeup on and it gives your skin a little extra oomph and brightness. I didn’t know if I would like this, but I really do.

MPB2

Moving on, I have a couple of food favorites, the first is Tim’s Cascade Chips. I’m not someone who eats chips a lot but if I’m craving them Tim’s is what I go for.  The flavor that’s in my pantry right now is the Original Lightly Salted, but all the flavors are great.

My next food favorite is Kinder Joy. I watch a lot of British YouTubers and I always see them eating Kinder Eggs and Kinder chocolate and I’ve always wanted to try it but I knew the eggs were banned in America. So when I saw Kinder Joy in Albertsons I was really surprised but I picked one up and the chocolate was really good. And in Kinder Eggs you get a little toy, so they would make a great addition to Easter baskets.

And my last food favorite is actually a drink and it’s Sprite Cranberry. Sprite is my favorite soda and I do really like cranberries and the cranberry flavor and this didn’t disappoint. It was refreshing and the cranberry was just right.

My next favorite is Major League Baseball. Yesterday was Opening Day for baseball and I could not be happier that it’s back. It’s my favorite sport and I’m excited to cheer on my Mariners. Game 1 certainly was exciting and I can’t wait for the rest of the remaining 161 games. I think they’re going to have a great season.

I have a TV show favorite this month and it’s The Curse of Civil War Gold on History Channel. It’s along the same vein as The Curse of Oak Island, which is one of my top five favorite shows, but this one is about possible Civil War gold at the bottom of Lake Michigan. I personally do believe that there is gold at the bottom of the lake and I hope Kevin Dykstra and his team are able to find it.

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is Take Me To The Pilot by Elton John. I came across this song in a very random way, I was on YouTube watching an old episode of the Graham Norton Show, which I love, and Elton was a guest along with Jack Black and they got talking about the song and I knew I had heard the title before but couldn’t remember the song itself. So I looked it up and it’s great, a really fun song.

My next song favorite is Mr. Blue Sky by ELO. I’ve loved this song for a long time, but have come back to it recently because it’s a fantastic spring and summer song. It’s one that you want to play with the windows down.

My last music favorite is Jeff Lynne’s ELO Wembley Or Bust album from their concert at Wembley Stadium in 2017. Top to bottom it’s a fantastic album full of amazing songs, I don’t know that I could pick one favorite but I love All Over The World, Rockaria, Shine A Little Love and When I Was A Boy, that one reminds me of my dad and if I keep listing songs I’ll end up listing the whole album. It’s on iTunes and YouTube so definitely go and give it a listen along with the other songs I mentioned.

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 you did love during March.

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

February favorites

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing my February favorites. This is a short month as it is, but I really feel like February flew by. I have a pretty good mix of things, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my February Sephora Play Box, if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it down below. The first is the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. I’ve used a couple different eye creams in the past and this is by far my favorite. I can tell it’s already made a difference and I highly, highly recommend this if you’re looking for an eye cream.

FSP3

Next we have the Sephora Collection Rouge Matte Lipstick in M11 Rebel Chic. I would describe this lipstick as the perfect berry. It’s not too red and it’s not too purple. The next time I wear it I’ll hopefully remember to take a picture because it is gorgeous on.

FSP6

FSP7

And my last beauty favorite is another lipstick and it’s the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 5855 Let’s Go Crazy. I had an interesting reaction when I initially unboxed this, I thought it was great because I love NARS then I swatched it and saw the color and I got a little nervous. It’s very bright and very pink but all of that went away when I put it on. It’s not as bright on and it’s a gorgeous shade of pink. Like the Sephora lipstick, the next time I wear this I’ll have to remember to take a picture.

FSP8

FSP9

Moving on I have a food favorite. The first is Noosa yogurt. I may or may not have mentioned this yogurt before, but I have two new favorite flavors. The first is key lime. It’s a flavor of yogurt I’ve always loved and when I saw that they had it I had to try it and I love it. And the second is coconut. As a flavor I generally like coconut, I really like Almond Joys, but I don’t ever buy coconut yogurt. I’m glad that I did because it’s so good, I definitely recommend it.

My next favorite will be a shock to no one and it’s NHRA drag racing. The season started earlier this month, we are two races in and it’s already been absolutely insane. Drag racing is my favorite motorsport, it goes NHRA IMSA and IndyCar. I don’t really watch Formula 1 anymore, I’ll catch a race or two during the season but I don’t keep up with it. But back to drag racing, I’m so happy it’s back and I’m back to writing about it and I’ll do so for the rest of the season. So if you’re interested keep an eye out for those posts.

Second to last we have a TV show and it’s season two of The Grand Tour. I love this show, I’ve always loved Clarkson, Hammond and May and I was excited when they decided to do a second season. Considering how much time they collectively spent in the hospital it’s great that they were able to make a full season and I hope they do many more, without the hospital visits of course.

And lastly I have a couple of music favorites. Three songs to be specific. The first is You Got It by Roy Orbison. This song randomly came on my Pandora and it made me smile because I hadn’t heard it in so long. I’m pretty sure they use the chorus of this song for a commercial or two, but the song as a whole is great.

The next song is Love Is For Me by Joe Cocker. I’ve never been a hardcore Joe Cocker fan, but he does have a few songs that I do really like and this is one of them. It’s bluesy, you guys know how much I love the blues and it’s a really fun song to sing.

And my last song favorite is Club At The End Of The Street by Elton John. Sir Elton John has always been one of my favorites, The Grammy’s are doing a salute to Elton later this year and I’m excited to see it. When I came across this song I was shocked because I had never heard it but it’s a really fun song. If you haven’t heard this, or the other two songs definitely look them up on YouTube.

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 February :).

January favorites

Hi everyone,

As today is January 30th, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. I have a pretty good range of items so lets get into it.

Starting with beauty, I didn’t really try out a whole lot of new products this month so I only have two things, one actual product and one honorable mention. The actual item is the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask. I ordered two of these, one in Champagne and the other in Natural, and the one I’m using right now is Champagne. But these are probably one of my favorite lip products I’ve ever used. Not only do they smell good, but they are incredibly moisturizing and they make my lips so soft. I highly recommend them. And my honorable mention is the Bite Beauty Sephora Insider birthday gift. I talked about that recently so I’ll leave a link to that post down below.

MJH1

Moving on to fashion, we have a pair of Fabletics leggings. I bought these recently and have since worn them a couple of times and I really like them. The fit is great and I love the pattern.

MJH9

Next up I have an app favorite and it’s Homescapes. I’ve been seeing this app everywhere for a while and a few of my friends have it so the other night when I couldn’t fall asleep I downloaded it and I love it. It didn’t help me with falling asleep because I was hooked and now I understand why it’s so popular.

Since I’m on the subject of apps, I know I mentioned Poshmark a little while ago, still loving it, and yesterday I added a bunch of new items to my closet. I’m KyraSage18 for anyone interested :).

From apps we go to TV shows, I don’t watch a whole lot of TV but this month I’ve really been loving season two of Better Late Than Never. If you’ve never watched it stars William Shatner, Henry Winkler, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye and they go on adventures all over the world. In my opinion it’s one of the funniest shows, nothing makes me cry laugh like this show but there are also some really endearing moments. And I definitely recommend checking it out.

My second to last favorite is IMSA. Their season just started with the 24 of Daytona, one of my favorite races, and it was a great race. Besides drag racing, IMSA is my favorite series so I’m happy it’s back.

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s the song The Core by Eric Clapton. You guys know how much I love EC, he’s one of my favorites. This song is one that I heard a long time ago, really liked and then never really did anything about, didn’t buy it from iTunes or anything like that. Then last week I saw a video of Clapton playing it during a concert and it reminded me just how much I love it. It’s from the Slowhand album, which is an album I think people tend to forget about because it’s an earlier album but it has some of my favorite songs on it. Definitely check out the song and the album if you haven’t listened to either.

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 guys loved this month.

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

November favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as November is nearly over, I thought that I would do my November favorites. But before I get into that I want to mention something exciting, this year I’m doing Blogmas. So every day up until Christmas, starting December 1st, there will be a new Christmassy blog post, this is something I’ve wanted to do since I started blogging and I’m excited about it. But back to this month, starting with beauty I have a couple of favorites from my November Glam Bag from Ipsy and as always I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it. First we have the ColourPop Pressed Shadow in Come And Get It. I’ve worn this a couple of times since talking about it and I bloody love it. It’s a gorgeous shade, very versatile and the color payoff is fantastic. ColourPop eyeshadows are where it’s at.

NGB7

NGB8

Next up we have the Tarte Deluxe Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is Feisty. There are a couple of things I love about this blush, first being the color. It’s a dusty rose and that’s a shade that I think is great all year round. The formulation is really nice and it’s very blendable/buildable. All good things if you ask me.

NGB5

Continuing with the beauty favorites we have the EM Cosmetics Infinite Lip Cloud in Rose Nude. I highly recommend EM Cosmetics lipsticks. The formulation is really nice, they’re long lasting, feel great and light on the lips, and it smells really good.

NGB2

My last Glam Bag favorite is the SKYN ICELAND Berry Lip Fix with Wintered Red Algae. I put this in my skincare routine after I got it just to see and I can honestly tell you that I love it. It’s always been part of my routine to put something on my lips right before I go to bed, I wear a lot of lipsticks and different products and want to keep my lips healthy and soft. I normally use the Vanilla Softlips, and I love it, but I started alternating between that and this and my lips have never been softer. And if that wasn’t enough for you, it smells incredible. I will definitely be delving more into SKYN ICELAND.

NGB3

Moving right along, I have a couple of app favorites. The first is Poshmark. I was going through my closet recently and found some pieces that I either hadn’t worn, don’t know why I bought them to begin with, or had worn once or twice but didn’t have a real place in my wardrobe anymore and I wanted to do something with them and found that Poshmark was the best app for the job. I made my first sale a couple of weeks ago and it was a really easy process. I highly recommend it and I have a couple of really cute shirts in my Posh closet right now, @kyrasage18 if you guys are interested. Let’s do some business :).

My second app favorite is the Design Home app. I’m one of those people that quite likes interior design and I have a couple of house flipping shows that I absolutely love. I will admit that when I first saw the ad for this app I was skeptical, but I downloaded it and I love it, it’s a lot of fun.

Next up I have a website favorite and that’s Etsy. I recently started my Christmas shopping and was looking for something specific for a friend of mine, I won’t say what on the off chance she reads this, but I found it, beautifully made and reasonably priced and I’m really happy with it.

My next favorite is something I discovered randomly, the other week I was scrolling through YouTube late at night looking for something to watch and I came across this segment from Michael McIntyre’s Big Show called Send To All. Basically what he does is takes the phone of a celebrity guest on the show, sends out a crazy text to all the contacts in that persons phone and reads out the replies. It is one of the funniest things and I think that Michael McIntyre is one of the funniest people, really makes me laugh.

My second to last favorite is Thanksgiving. I love Thanksgiving, the food, the fun and the ridiculous amount of laughter that comes with my family getting together. I made apple pie like always do and I was really pleased with the way it turned out, it was delicious. I really should make this pie more throughout the year.

NFA1

NFA2

And my last favorite is a song and it’s Hard To Say Sorry by Chicago. I listened to Chicago growing up, thanks Dad, and they have a ton of great songs, but this is probably my favorite song of theirs. It’s just one of those songs that I will belt out and I have no shame. If you haven’t heard it definitely  give 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 you loved during November.

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

June favorites

Hi everyone,

As today is the last day of June I thought it would be the perfect time to do my June favorites. Honestly, this month went by so fast I can hardly believe that tomorrow is July 1st. Back to my favorites, I’m going to start with beauty. The first beauty favorite is the Balm, Balm Springs blush in Full Swing. I mentioned that I really like the blushes from the Balm in my June Glam Bag post, which I will leave a link to below if you haven’t read it yet. And I think this one is great, it’s a light pinky shade and it’s one of those great summer blushes for sure.

JNGB4

My next beauty favorite is the NYX Whipped Lip and Cheek Soufflé in Plush. I’m actually wearing this today and I’ve been loving it since I got it. The color is great, the texture is nice and it being whipped makes it light on your lips. And it smells like vanilla frosting and that’s always a plus. I love NYX and I would definitely recommend any of their products.

JNGB7

JNGB5

And my last beauty favorite is a nail polish. It’s from Trust Fund Beauty and it’s in the shade Game Changer. Trust Fund Beauty makes fantastic nail polishes in my opinion. The staying power is great and I really like the formulation. This one in particular is gorgeous, a perfect summer color.  If you’re looking for nail polish definitely check out Trust Fund Beauty.

JNGB6

My next favorite is actually an app and it’s WhatsApp. It’s been around for a while, but I didn’t have a use for it until recently and I so appreciate it. It really does make group chats so much easier.

Next I have a television favorite and it’s Pretty Little Liars. PLL just had it’s series finale and I’m so sad that it’s over. Yes, I may have gotten a little emotional when I watched it, but I’d been watching for so long, it was bound to happen. I’m not going to spoil anything if there’s anyone who hasn’t watched the finale yet. But I will say that I was right in my theory and I was okay with how it ended. It made sense to me. But now I have one less show to watch, so if any of you have good show recommendations let me know.

My last couple of favorites are music. The first is the band Take That. I love them always but recently I’ve been loving their latest album Wonderland. There isn’t a song on that album that I don’t like. Their Wonderland tour is brilliant, from the videos I’ve seen and I’m jealous because they aren’t doing an American tour. But for future reference, Gary Barlow, Mark Owen, Howard Donald, an American tour would be fantastic and much appreciated. Let me know what songs you guys are loving from the Wonderland album.

Next is a song and it’s Hold On by Michael Buble. This song came up on my Pandora and I’m so happy it did because it’s amazing and I love it. I actually found sheet music for it for the piano and I’m really excited to play it.

And my last favorite is Robbie Williams Heavy Entertainment Show album. From top to bottom it’s a fantastic album. Robbie is also on tour and again, based on the videos I’ve seen it’s a great show. I know it can be hard to put together a setlist when you have so many songs, but he’s done good. If you guys haven’t heard any of the songs or albums that I’ve mentioned look them up because they are all insanely good.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites let me know and if not let me know what you loved during June.

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