June Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the last day of the month, I thought today would be the perfect time to do my June favorites. There were so many things I tried and liked this month, but didn’t include because I have them set aside for other posts. I do think I still have a pretty good mix though, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my June BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it. My first Boxy favorite is the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm. This is a very hydrating primer that leaves your skin super smooth and gives you a lasting glow. I like that it’s enough of a glow that you can see it under foundation but it’s not too much. If you want more of a glow you can apply multiple layers of it to build it up. It also sinks in to the skin pretty quickly and it smells really good.

My next Boxy favorite is the Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Coco Bling. This is a loose highlighting powder that has a good amount of shimmer and pigment. This comes in a bunch of different shades, but Coco Bling is a light silver. I find this to be great for face and body and it’s very buildable. I don’t have any other highlighters in this shade or tone, so I’m really enjoying this.

My last Boxy favorite is the Beauty Vaulte Circadian Lip Liner Trio. I really like these. I’ve worn all three of them as liners and as all over lip colors, they go on really smooth and creamy and they have great staying power.

IMG_5661

The first one we have is Kozy Kira and it’s a nice medium brown, this is a brown shade that I didn’t already have as a liner, and I’m glad I do now because it goes with so many of my brown lipsticks.

Then we have Beau Babe and this is a rusty brown. This is a perfect match for the Too Faced Gingerbread Man Melted Matte Lipstick.

IMG_5663

Then we have Natty Nat. This is a deep red and it’s a really good red, I like it a lot.

IMG_5664

IMG_5667

And my last beauty favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size palette in Cream & Sugar. This has a nice range of light to dark neutral mattes and shimmers. These are colors I tend to gravitate towards when doing a neutral look and I’ve already gotten a lot of use out of it.

IMG_5678

Moving on I have a couple of fashion favorites. The first is a black and white American flag shirt from Tactical Pro Supply. I always buy myself new America gear, so I have options not only for July 4th, but for any time of the year. Tactical Pro Supply is a veteran owned company who donates a portion of their proceeds to a charity that’s important to them and I really like that. This shirt in particular is black with a white flag on the back that’s sitting in a cool way, a flag on the right arm and an eagle on the left side on the front.

IMG_5720

My second fashion favorite is a Team Penske hoodie. Now that racing is slowly but surely starting back up, I thought it was time to treat myself to some new gear. I’m always rooting for the Penske cars in IndyCar and IMSA, and I have so much respect for Roger, I mean he’s The Captain for a reason. But I didn’t have gear to support, so I went to the website and found quite a few things that I’ll probably go back and purchase at some point, but I liked this hoodie a lot. It’s dark grey with the red line and ‘Team Penske’ written in white. It’s so soft on the inside and it keeps me warm and cozy but it’s also really light so I can wear it all year. Additionally it has the holes for your thumbs, which I like.

IMG_5626

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s Let Me Love You Baby by B.B. King and Eric Clapton. This is the second previously unreleased song from their album Riding With The King. This song is straight up two blues masters doing what they do best and it’s just so good. I highly recommend giving it a listen if you haven’t heard it.

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 :).

May Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be a good time to do my May favorites. I tried quite a few new things this month, so I have a good mix. That being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I started BoxyCharm and because I subscribed at the very end of April I got my April box in May along with my May box, meaning I have favorites from both. I will of course link both of those posts down below if you haven’t read them. The first is the Pretty Vulgar Uncaged Eyeshadow Primer. My go to eyeshadow primer is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but this one is now up there as a go to. It’s on the thicker side and has a fade proof and crease proof translucent finish that really does make my shadow last all day and brings out the vibrance.

IMG_5551

My second beauty favorite is the Murad Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for eyes. This has hyaluronic acid and algae extract for smoothness, to seal in moisture and help in reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. This has quickly become a favorite of mine. I’ve been using this since I got it and I do feel like I can see a difference. I’ve used a few different Murad products and they’re honestly all great. I definitely recommend this if you’re looking for a new eye cream.

IMG_5511

My second to last BoxyCharm favorite is the Alamar Cosmetics Colorete Blush Trio in Medium-Tan. In this palette you get three blushes, hence blush trio, but you have Seclusion which is an orangey/peach shade, Isla which is a coral and Toasted, a rosey pink. These blushes are all very pretty. They’re buildable, blend out nicely and are quite  pigmented without being too much.

IMG_5515

IMG_5516

IMG_5517

My last BoxyCharm favorite is the Vintage By Jessica Liebeskind Cashmere Lip Pencil in Mocha. This is honestly a great lip pencil. It’s in a really nice medium brown that goes super well with most of my current nudey/brown lipsticks. I’ve also worn this on it’s own all over my lips, it goes on really smooth and has great staying power.

IMG_5518

IMG_5519

IMG_5520

And my last, non Boxy favorite is the e.l.f. Bite Size eyeshadow palette in Truffles. This palette is a mix of darker neutrals, browns and blacks. There is a lot of versatility in this palette and I’ve worn it a few times since talking about it. I also ordered the rest of the Bite Size palettes I was missing and got them yesterday, so look for part four of the Bite Size series soon.

IMG_5476

IMG_5477

IMG_5478

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos Popcorn. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos are one of my favorite snacks and I love popcorn, so when I saw these I was intrigued. These don’t have as much of that vinegar pop that you get with the Cheetos, but they have a good heat and will leave your fingers that bright red-orange.

IMG_5561

IMG_5573

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is the 20th Anniversary Edition of B.B. King and Eric Clapton’s Riding With The King album. This comes out on June 26th, but it’s available for pre-order now on CD, 2 LP and Digital. Along with being remastered, this album has also been expanded. So you get two unreleased tracks, Rollin’ and Tumblin’ and Let Me Love You Baby. I have the original CD, but I’ve pre-ordered this. Rollin’ and Tumblin’ has been released on Spotify and I think it’s great. Eric has done a few versions of this song over the years and this one fits in perfectly with the rest of the album and I’m glad they decided to add it in now.

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 your May favorites were.

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

Blogmas Day Seven: Eric Clapton Christmas Album Review

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Seven! Today I’m going to be talking about Eric Clapton’s Christmas album Happy Xmas. I wanted him to do a Christmas album forever and I’m so happy that it happened. I have this album on my phone and I have a physical copy, but I do that with most albums. I’m one of those people who still likes CDs, I bought a few for other people because CDs always make great Christmas presents/stocking stuffers and the art on this album is adorable. I know it was drawn by Eric and it makes it feel that much more Christmassy.

EC1

The track listing for this album is:

  1. White Christmas
  2. Away In a Manger (Once in Royal David’s City)
  3. For Love On Christmas Day
  4. Everyday Will Be Like A Holiday
  5. Christmas Tears
  6. Home For The Holidays
  7. Jingle Bells
  8. Christmas in My Hometown
  9. It’s Christmas
  10. Sentimental Moments
  11. Lonesome Christmas
  12. Silent Night
  13. Merry Christmas Baby
  14. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

I know that if you listen on Spotify then you can hear two bonus tracks, A Little Bit Of Christmas Love and You Always Hurt The Ones You Love. Which are great, just like the rest of the album.

What I like about this album is top to bottom it’s different. It’s that perfect mix of bluesy and classic Christmas with a surprise thrown in. Jingle Bells is dedicated to Avicii, as Eric really liked his style and I think that that’s a beautiful thing to do, especially during this time of year. And it’s a great song.

Overall, this album is everything I wanted it to be and more and I give it a 9.5/10. The classics are so well done, the originals are amazing. I don’t think that I have one song that is my favorite, but I’m not gonna lie, I’ve been listening to this on and off since it came out in October, which I don’t do with Christmas music, and since it’s December it has made it’s way onto my Christmas playlist.

If you haven’t yet listened to this album, I highly, highly recommend that you do. I know it’s on Spotify and YouTube. I bought it from iTunes and got the physical copy from the EC store on his website, but I know that you can buy it other places.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve listened to this album what’s your favorite song or songs?

Until next time, you can never have too many Christmas albums and have fun listening :).

October favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Halloween! Today as it’s the last day of the month I’m going to be doing my October favorites, and yes I’m listening to my Halloween playlist while I do this and I’ll link that down below for anyone that wants to have a listen. I have some fun favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have one favorite from my October Sephora Play Box. I ended up getting it really late, so I haven’t had a lot of time to test things out. But I have been using one thing, I actually used it this morning, and it’s the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Hydrating Primer. This primer has hyaluronic acid, marine plant and algae extracts and I can tell a difference with my skin. It feels softer and smoother and I’m really liking it. I will definitely be purchasing a full size version.

OSP4

My next beauty favorite is some lipsticks and not just any lipsticks, these are Givenchy Le Rouge Liquide lipsticks. I got a sample of three with a Sephora order and I really liked them so I ordered them and I’m looking at which ones to buy next. The three that I have are 202 Rose Flanelle, 309 L’ Interdit and 410 Rouge Suedine. I don’t have a picture wearing 309, but the next time I wear it I’ll post one to my social medias. These lipsticks are a velvet matte, they’re long lasting and the color payoff is great. I definitely recommend these.

OCF4

OCF5

My next favorite is baseball related, and speaking of which, I want to congratulate the Boston Red Sox on winning the World Series! They were stellar and it was so much fun to watch. But my baseball related favorite has to do with the Seattle Mariners. Towards the end of the season they always do a fan appreciation night and give away prizes and fun experiences. The Mariners team store also does giveaways and on Twitter they said that if you retweeted a certain tweet of theirs and followed them then you could win a Nelson Cruz jersey. I was already following them and I think contests like that are a bit of fun, so I retweeted and I was one of the five winners! I was really surprised and happy that I decided to do it. I love Nelson Cruz and the jersey is great, so it’s a win win.

OCF3

My second to last favorites are music favorites. The first is Eric Clapton’s new Christmas album Happy Xmas. I won’t go into it too much because I’m going to be doing a full review of it in December. But what I will say is that I wanted him to do a Christmas album for the longest time and I’m so happy that it finally happened. It’s everything I wanted it to be and more, definitely go and give it a listen.

My second music favorite is Take That’s new song Out Of Our Heads from their forthcoming album Odyssey. This song is really, really fun. It’s different but at the same time it’s very Take That. It’s very bouncy and old school, the work with the horns is fantastic. Like something you would hear in a club in the old days.

And my last favorite is Halloween. I like to do something fun with my makeup and today I tried something that I hadn’t done before and I’m not a makeup artist by any means but I’m really pleased with how it came out. And I always carve a pumpkin, which I did yesterday. I went for the more sinister/scary vibe and I think it turned out great and once I light it up I’ll be posting pictures to my social medias.

OCF2

OCF1

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 your favorites were this month.

Until next time, I hope you all had a great October and Happy Halloween! 🙂

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 :).

August favorites

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to be doing my August favorites. I can’t believe how quickly this month and summer in general has gone. I am ready for fall and everything that comes with it, but this summer has been nice. That being said, let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my August Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that down below if you haven’t read it. My first favorite is the MoroccanOil Dry Texture Spray. I really like this, I’ve used it a couple times since getting it, including today. I put my hair in a bun and wanted a little more volume, which it gave me and I’m happy with it. I would definitely recommend it.

AGSP8

My next beauty favorite is the Nars Pro Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. I don’t always wear an eyeshadow primer, but I’ve been wearing this since I got it and I really like it. It stops my eyeshadow from creasing and it locks in my look all day.

AGSP2

And my last beauty favorite is the Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in C211, Rose Wood. I really like this lipstick, the color is great, it’s highly pigmented and it has a great satin finish. I would definitely recommend it and I’m for sure going to be buying more of these lipsticks.

AGSP4

AGSP5

AGFA1

My next favorite is a food favorite and it’s the Noosa Yogurt single serves and specifically the Vanilla Bean. Noosa Yogurt is one of my favorites and I love that they have them in the little singles now, it’s the perfect amount.

AGFA2

AGFA3

And my last couple favorites are music favorites. The first is something that I’m really excited about and it’s Eric Clapton’s forthcoming Christmas album Happy Xmas. I’ve been saying for 10 years how great it would be if he brought out a Christmas album and I can’t wait to hear it.

My last music favorite is the Beatles song I’ve Just Seen A Face. I’ve always like this song and I recently decided to try and learn it on ukulele and it’s going well. It’s a fast song, but it’s really fun to play.

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 all had a great August :).

May favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the 31st, I thought I would do my May favorites. This month feels like it flew by, I can’t believe tomorrow is June 1st. I have a pretty good mix of stuff this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting off with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my May Sephora Play Box and I will leave a link to that below if you haven’t read it. The theme this month was Beauty Goals. This month marked two years of Sephora Play, so they chose products that were beloved and have stood the test of time. My first favorite is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Trooper. I’m always down to try a new eyeliner and I really like this one. The applicator is thin so you get a really precise and clean line and it doesn’t smudge or transfer. I would definitely recommend it.

MSP6

My next favorite is the Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara in Noir. This mascara is supposed to give your lashes mega volume without clumping and it does just that. I’m kind of picky with my mascaras and I have two that I already love and use, Too Faced Better Than Sex and Essence Cosmetics I Love Crazy Volume, but I really, really like this. It makes my lashes look a mile long and this will be a fixture in my makeup bag for the foreseeable future.

MSP5

And my last Sephora Play favorite is the YSL Black Opium perfume. I can’t even tell you how freaking good this smells. It’s very well balanced, it’s a mix of sweet, fresh and there’s a warmth to it. I would definitely say to smell this if you get the chance.

MSP7

My next favorite is a nail polish and it’s Sinful Colors 1702, Hush Money. It’s a metallic rose and it’s beautiful.

MYF2

MYF3

Moving on, I have a food favorite and it’s David sunflower seeds, the ranch flavor. I’ve always loved seeds, and around this time of year I always have them in the pantry. I love them for not only watching and playing baseball but they’re a great snack period.

From food we go to racing. My racing favorite this month was the Indy 500. I’ve watched the 500 since I can remember, it’s one of my favorite Memorial Day weekend traditions. This was the 102nd running and it was incredibly exciting. Will Power ended up winning and I’m really happy for him, his family and Team Penske. Winning this race is a big deal and no small feat.

My second to last favorite is probably the most random thing in here and it’s Goop. If you don’t know, Goop is a multipurpose hand cleaner. My dad has always sworn by this, saying it works the best and it’s the only one you’ll ever need. And it is the only thing I use when I’m in the garage working on cars and my hands are just filthy. I’ve tried others, but in the end I came back to Goop. It’s not harsh on your hands, it smells good and it does a phenomenal job of removing the layers of whatever is on your hands so you’re not scrubbing with soap forever. It also gets stains out of clothes, over the weekend I got grease on my favorite pair of jeans and it got it right out.

MYF1

And my last favorite is a music favorite and it’s the Cream 2005 Reunion Concert it took place at Royal Albert Hall, May 2-3-5-6. Cream consists of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce (RIP) and Ginger Baker. They were one of the first rock supergroups, and while they weren’t around for very long originally, conflicts between Bruce and Baker, they made a huge impact. And around the time leading up to this concert there had been some things happen and it made Clapton think that they should get back together and put the past behind them before it was too late. And they did just that. I have both the DVD and CD versions of the concert and it is fantastic. It’s one of those things I can watch over and over, some of my favorite songs are Cream songs, and it makes me smile every time.

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 May favorites were.

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

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 :).

October favorites

Hi everyone,

First off I want to say happy November. I can’t believe this year has gone by so fast, but as it is the first of the month I thought it would be a good time to do my October favorites. Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my October Glam Bag. If you haven’t yet read that post I will link it down below. The first is the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. I’ve been using this everyday since I got it and I absolutely love it. I don’t have particularly dry skin, but it is getting colder and the cold can be harsh on your skin and this is the perfect thing to combat that. I definitely recommend it.

OGB2

My next favorite is the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Perversion. This is one of my favorite pencil liners that I’ve used. It glides on smooth and once it’s on it doesn’t smudge. However, I am the type that if I’m going to mess up my liner it’s going to be with a pencil opposed to a liquid, so if you do happen to mess this up or smudge while applying it can get a little messy. And definitely don’t be like me and try to do eyeliner in the car. But besides that, I love it.

OGB3

Next up we have the MDMflow Liquid Matte Lipstick in Retro. I can’t express how much I love this lipstick. I absolutely love the color and the formulation and staying power are amazing. It’s a very well made product and I want to wear all of the MDMflow lipsticks. Definitely check them out.

OGB5

And here’s a picture of me wearing the Urban Decay liner and this MDMflow lipstick.

OF9

And my last favorite is a Pretty Woman NYC nail polish in the shade Wine With Ice, Garçon. I’ve mentioned how much I love the Pretty Woman NYC nail polishes, they last and the formulation is really nice. And this one in particular, it being a deep wine color, is the perfect shade for fall.

Moving on, I have a food favorite. And it’s the Yoplait French style Oui yogurt. These yogurts are thick, creamy and only made with a few ingredients and I really like them. They come in these little glass pots and I think they’re the perfect size. There are a couple of different flavors, but my favorites are the Vanilla, Black Cherry and Lemon.

My second to last favorite is Halloween. Halloween kicks off the holiday season and it’s always been one of my favorites. I love to dress up and be festive. I went to a Halloween party like I do every year and I honestly changed my mind on my costume like four times, but I ended up going as a cowgirl and I had a lot of fun.

It is worth noting that my lipstick is the Too Faced Melted Matte lipstick in Lady Balls, it’s one of my favorite red lipsticks, and my boots are from Just Fab.

I also carved a pumpkin because you can’t have Halloween without pumpkins and I went with a bat design this year.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. And it’s two songs from Eric Clapton’s Behind The Sun album. Behind The Sun has always been an album that I liked and it has some fantastic songs on it. The first is It All Depends and the second is Something’s Happening. These two songs are so different but they’re both amazing and if you haven’t heard them or any other songs from the album definitely give them a listen. It’s so worth it.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we had any of the same favorites in October let me know and if not I’d love to know what your favorites were.

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

February favorites

Hi everyone,

As today is the first of March, I figured it was time to do my February favorites. I don’t have a ton of different favorites this month, but I think there is a good mix. Starting with beauty, we have, from NYX a lipstick. It’s a NYX Butter Lipstick in the shade Ripe Berry. This is from my February Glam Bag and if you haven’t read that post, I’ll link it below. When I unboxed this lipstick I was excited to wear it and when I put it on it was instant love. It looked different on my lips than it had when I tested it on my hand and in a it was way better. It’s about as dark as I’ve gone with berry toned lipsticks but it’s pretty much perfect. I would definitely recommend it.

My next favorite is an eye shadow. This is a cream pigment from Hikari Cosmetics in the shade Latte. I’m so in love with this shadow. It’s honestly so pretty, the color payoff is great and it blends really well. I will definitely be doing more looks with this shadow.

And my last beauty favorite is a nail polish by Trust Fund Beauty in the shade I Give Good Tweet. It’s in a periwinkle shade, which isn’t a color I already have in my polish collection, so I was excited it try it. I loved this shade in the bottle, and when I put it on it was just as pretty. The formulation is great and it had good staying power. I usually keep a manicure for about a week or so and it stayed looking good for that time. That’s one nail polish I know I will be going back to come spring and summer.

Moving on, my next two favorites are songs. The first is Bell Bottom Blues by Eric Clapton. This is one of those classic Clapton songs, but it had been forever and a day since I’d heard it, so when I put my phone on shuffle and it played it reminded me of how much I loved it. Besides the original Derek and The Dominos, my favorite version of the song is live from the One More Car One More Rider concert Eric did in 2001, but I know it’s a song he’s played since.

My last song favorite is also by Eric Clapton and it’s Lovin’ You Lovin’ Me. This is an old song of his, it’s from his 1970 self titled album and I’m not entirely sure if it’s on any others. I heard this song on one of my Pandora stations and there’s just something about it that made me smile. I knew that I had heard it before, ages and ages ago, but it was nice to hear it again. And if you haven’t heard either of these songs definitely look them up on YouTube.

And speaking of YouTube, my last favorite is a YouTube channel. You guys know that I love the US Navy Blue Angels, I did a post about them last summer, which I will link below. And right now they are doing their winter training in El Centro, California. I really like to watch videos of them practicing and seeing how, if at all they have changed some of the maneuvers. And really seeing how the team is after getting some new additions in the off season. There are a few channels on YouTube where people post this type of video, but my favorite is MKBLUES1. My brother actually told me about their channel and I’m glad he did. I think besides the camera work and how well edited their videos are they have what I’m assuming is a radio scanner and know what frequencies the Blues talk on so you can hear Boss talking and calling out maneuvers, the diamond pilots responding and the solos doing their thing. When I was a kid my brother had a scanner of his own and he knew the channels they talked on, so during Seafair he would turn it on so we could hear the pilots as we were seeing them and people would always come over to us and listen. It was quite fun. So I definitely recommend their channel if you are in to things like that.

That about wraps it up for this post. If you guys have any of the same favorites as me let me know and if not let me know what your favorites were for February.

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