September Favorites

Hi everyone,

As today is the last day of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my September favorites. I have good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have two favorites from my September BoxyCharm box, which I’ll link below if you haven’t read. The first Boxy favorite is the Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows in Private Jet & Shimmering Sunset. I’ve worn these in a couple different ways since getting them, and they’re both really pretty and versatile. The matte, Private Jet, is very velvety and dries down quickly. Color wise it’s a light pink but it had a lot of warmth to it. The metal, Shimmering Sunset, is a gorgeous shadow. I’ve used it as a liner and all over the lid and it works great in both applications and color wise it’s an amber/slightly rose gold.

My second Boxy favorite is the Alamar Cosmetics Spanglish Pressed Pigment Palette. I’m not going to talk too much about this palette here because I am doing a Three Recent Looks post with it. But what I will give you some of the basics. This palette has eight shadows, four mattes and four shimmers.

The shimmers in this palette are very shimmery. They have reflective pearls and fine glitters and the mattes are nicely pigmented. When I did my original swatching two of the mattes were a little powdery, but they blended out very nicely.

This is a great palette and if you want to have fun with color, then I would recommend it. 

My last beauty favorite is a MAC lipstick in the shade 640, Red Rock. I bought this during the BoxyCharm Pop Up Sale and since my initial about it I’ve worn it quite a few times.

This lipstick has a matte finish, it’s highly pigmented and very creamy. Tone wise I would say that this is a classic red. MAC does red so well and this is a perfect example of that. This is going to be one of my go to lipsticks for the holidays.

Moving on, I have a couple of random favorites. The first is the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Normally the 24 is held is June, but this year it was rescheduled to September and despite the fact that there were fewer cars in the field it was a very exciting and action packed race and I really enjoyed it. 

My second random favorite is my sunflowers. My poor sunflowers went through a lot this year, they got eaten by slugs in their early stages of growing, although I did take care of the slug problem with copper tape, and just recently heavy rain and wind blew three of them over. But before that happened they all opened up and were so pretty.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, specifically the live stream concert Joe Bonamassa did at the Ryman Auditorium. With there being practically no live music this year it was really great to sit down and listen to some even if it was over a live stream. I think the setlist for the show was great, he played a few songs off of his upcoming album Royal Tea, out October 23rd, and some of his other classic and popular songs. I thought it was great and I can’t wait to listen to Royal Tea in full. 

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 September :).

June Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my June favorites. I have quite a few things I loved this month, and a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my June Sephora Play Box and I will link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first Sephora Play favorite is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Vanilla. I mentioned that I had never used a lip sleeping mask, so I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I really like this one. You put this on before you go to bed and when you wake up you remove the remaining product and you’re left with really smooth and moisturized lips. This also smells really good and I definitely recommend it.

JUSP5

Next we have the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. I’ve been using this primer off and on for a while now and it’s one that I really like. It has marine plant extracts, turmeric and hyaluronic acid which helps to really wake up your skin and it gives you a great base to work with. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea line has a ton of great products and this is a primer that I always recommend.

JUSP3

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream. I’ve been slowly incorporating this into my skincare routine and I’m really liking it. It’s really light, sinks into the skin pretty quickly and I feel very moisturized.

JUSP4

Moving on, I have a jewelry favorite and it’s these earrings. I did a whole post about them and I’ll link that down below. But basically they’re from Earfleek and I like them a lot. They’re simple but I think they add the perfect little bit to a look.

EF5

Next I have a racing favorite and it’s the 24 Hours of Le Mans. One of the biggest races of the year, it takes place at the Circuit de le Sarthe, Le Mans, France and this was the 87th running. I watched most of it, like I try to every year, and it was very exciting and there was a lot going on like in any endurance race and then there were some not so great moments. But I would one thousand percent recommend watching it if you never have.

My last kind of random favorite is a TV show, Good Omens on Amazon Prime. I had been seeing ads for Good Omens everywhere and it looked kind of interesting so I decided to give it a go. I’m so glad I did because it’s brilliant and I absolutely loved it. I think the casting was absolutely perfect and I love the humor that it brings. The only thing that I didn’t like is that’s it’s only six episodes because I wanted more, but being based off of a book, I understand. And now I’m going to read the book because I’m interested to see how it translated and because the book has great reviews. I absolutely, 10/10 recommend it.

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is the song Holy Mountain by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. This song came out of nowhere, it popped up randomly on my Spotify and I’m happy I did it. This was my first Noel Gallagher experience and because I liked this one so much I’ve been having a little look through his music and finding songs I quite like. The song Rattling Rose from his new album Black Star Dancing is a great listen.

My second music favorite is The Doobie Brothers Live from the Beacon Theater. This concert was recorded in November of 2018, the first time in 25 years they had played there and this concert is special because they played their albums Toulouse Street and The Captain and Me. PBS showed a handful of the concert recently and it was great. I know The Captain and Me pretty well but I only knew a couple songs from Toulouse Street so it’s been great to hear some of these songs for the first time. I did preorder the 2CD set and the Blu-ray, the 2CD, DVD and 2CD + DVD is being released on June 28th and the Blu-ray on July 12th. So I’m really excited to watch and listen to the full concert and I highly recommend giving it a watch/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 June favorites were.

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