Hello everyone! Today I am going to be sharing with you my favorites throughout the months of May and June, as shown by the title, haha. I am going to start doing monthly favorites every other month. I honestly don’t have enough content to do it monthly, so I thought this was a great alternative because I really enjoy sharing my favorites as well as hearing yours! So be sure to leave in the comments what beauty items, books, movies, events etc. that you’ve been loving these past couple of months.
Without further ado, let’s begin!
Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette– What makeup lover isn’t obsessed with this product right now? The blushes and highlighters in this palette are GORGEOUS. They all have great color payoff and are just overall beautiful. What I really like about this, is that you can easily mix and match the blushes and highlighters because everything complements everything. No need for searching, this baby has got me covered when it comes to bringing some life to my face.
Colourpop Lippie Stix in Brink– I lalalovvee this lipstick! It’s a matte, but not too matte, and it’s SUPER comfy on the lips. But my favorite thing about it is the color! For me personally, it is a “my lips but better” shade. I always struggle finding a nude that complements my skin tone, so I’m very happy I came across this! If you have an olive skin tone, this lipstick is for you! Also, did I mention it was only five bucks? Yeah, it’s awesome.
Ben and Jerry’s Dairy-free ice-cream– Y’all already know I have stomach problems, and one of the setbacks I have from it is not being able to have dairy. So when I found these pints of joy, I was ecstatic. This ice-cream is soooo good y’all. The only difference I really notice compared to the original recipe is that this is not nearly as creamy. But that’s okay. Ice cream is ice cream to me!
Arctic Zero Ice-cream – This is another dairy-free ice-cream that I’ve really been liking as well. This one is also gluten-free! So yeah; you can say I’ve been going a little ice-cream crazy lately. I’m not sorry.
Luna Protein Bars– Thanks to my friend Carolina (THANK YOU SO MUCH NINA), I am now obsessed with these protein bars. I’ve only tried the cookie dough flavor, but needless to say I love them. I have two boxes of them in my drawer right now actually. So if you’re a girl on the go, I highly recommend these!
Gilmore Girls- I know, I know. This show is kinda old and I’m super late to the party, but this is too good not to mention. I’ve never really heard of anyone talk about Gilmore Girls, and when I saw it on Netflix I decided to give it a shot. It’s unlike any t.v. show I’ve ever watched, and I absolutely adore it. If you’re into dramas, but don’t like them too over the top, I really recommend this series! Although it can be cheesy at times, it is honestly one of my favorites because it’s humorous and relatable.
Spoon- No, I’m not talking about the utensil, but about the band! They are such a good indie rock band, and they actually originated in Austin, Texas! (Hook em’) The main album that I’ve been listening to is, “They Want My Soul.”
AWOLNATION- I’ve been listening to AWOLNATION for years, but I’ve really been on a rock kick lately so I am constantly replaying their tracks. Their music is so unique, and it honestly never gets old to me.
Room by Emma Donoghue– Usually when I buy books, it’s because I’ve been on the hunt for them. Rarely do I ever just see a book at the store and get it just cause, but when I read the summary for “Room” I knew I had to read it. It is such an eye-opening book that calls to one particular reality of this world, and that is kidnapping and rape. I definitely think that this book is pushed more for book clubs or school, and I can see why. Once you read it, you itch to discuss with someone. It is truly just overall an amazing story with insightful themes and thoughts.
And that is it for my May and June Favorites! I know it’s not a ton, but these are truly things I have really been enjoying. Once again, feel free to share in the comments what YOU have been loving! I love hearing from y’all.
