May Faves!!

May was a WEIRD month. Not good or bad necessarily …just a little weird. I’m in some sort of funk and am really hoping that June is going to turn it around!

Anyway, here’s some things I’ve loved throughout the month!!


My new go-to lip combo!! The funny thing about these three are that I don’t really love any of these on their own, but together they are rocking my world. Rimmel Exaggerate lip liner in Natural, Maybelline lipstick in Daringly Nude, and NYX butter gloss in Creme Brûlée. It’s my perfect nude lip color. I’ve noticed that there is definitely a difference between your “my lips but better” color and your perfect nude. MLBB is more of a neutral that just enhances your lips and the nude makes more of a statement. I have reached for this combo a ton this month!!

I know I just talked about a brow product last month, but I’ve added a new one to my routine. This Anastasia brow wiz is fabulous! The tip of the pencil is so thin and really allows you to fill in your brows in the most natural way. I wear this alone on a daily basis and pair it with my Ulta brow gel if I need my brows to be a little more bold.

I picked up this L’OREAL Infallible Pro-Matte foundation earlier this month because I have heard nothing but great things about it and I am definitely jumping on this train. I love it so much!! It’s the perfect finish, matte like I normally reach for but not powder-y. It’s medium to full coverage but doesn’t feel heavy on the skin. I’m interested to try the setting spray from this line as well.

Face, Hair and Body

I LOVE a good face mask from LUSH. I think my favorite is the Cupcake mask, however they were out when I went (MAJOR sad face) I picked up Oatifix which I have used before and really enjoy. It doesn’t target oily skin, which I suffer from, but my skin has actually been a little on the dry side lately. This one contains mashed banana, and ground almond which are meant to soften the skin. Definitely recommend if your skin is just looking for a little loving!

Florida summers are brutal for my hair. It hates the humidity and I definitely don’t blame it. However that means that my hair usually ends up in a top knot by 11AM. The Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Spray has definitely been helping with that. It is meant to give you that beachy effortless wave that is so perfect for summer. I love curling my hair like normal and then spraying this all over and working it in. It helps my hair look “less done” so when the humidity starts to get to it, it doesn’t mess up a more styled look. 

I had my first beach day of the summer and got WAY more sun than I was expecting. My favorite after sun lotion is definitely Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration. It smells DIVINE!! Like I can’t even explain to you how much I love this scent. The combo of aloe and lotion is perfect too! It’s moisturizing and cooling, which is what your skin needs after a day in the sun!


I don’t want to say too much about this because I’ve got our first BOOKCLUB REVIEW coming on Saturday, but The Girl on the Train is definitely on my list of favorites for the month! I finished it in just about three days!

Trader Joe’s hashbrowns. I can’t stop eating you. Why are you so good?! I have never really been one to love breakfast food but these babies are a game changer. I’m sure that any brand makes frozen hashbrowns, they’re not that special, so just hash browns in general, I love you.

I have really been enjoying Alex & Sierra’s cd It’s About Us. The duo won The X Factor …last season? I’m not too sure I didn’t really watch but I LOVE THEM. They are the cutest couple ever and have the most amazing voices. I fell in love with their performance of Gravity they did on the show and have loved them ever since. Plus their from Orlando so that’s cool too!!

Also- guilty pleasure of the month, Beyonce and Nicki Minaj’s Feeling Myself. I have to be honest I’m not on the Queen B train, but this song is PRAISE HANDS EMOJI. I find myself jamming to it all the time. 

Hope you all had a great May and are ready for an even better June!
