May Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my May favorites. I think I have a pretty good mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a few favorites from my May Sephora Play Box and I’ll link that below if you haven’t read it. My first Play favorite is the Benefit BADgal BANG! Volumizing Mascara. This is a mascara that I already had and already used but seeing it in this box has reminded me to wear it more because I genuinely love it. It doesn’t clump or feel heavy on the lashes and it gives me a ton of volume and length. It’s a fantastic mascara.

MYSP7

My next favorite is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Deepp Dive Cleansing Gel. If you guys have read any of my skincare routine posts, with the exception of the last one, then you’ll know this is a product I’ve been using for a while. And I put it in here because it’s so good. It has marine plant extracts along with vitamin C and it leaves your skin feeling really hydrated and super soft. And the fact that it removes whatever long lasting/waterproof makeup I’m wearing and doesn’t leave anything behind is a major plus.

MYSP3

My second to last beauty favorite and last Play favorite is the Viktor&Rolf Magic Salty Flower perfume. This is a scent that I would say is perfect for spring and summer but you could definitely wear it in the fall if you do perfumes for certain seasons. It’s really fresh and has floral hints but it’s also spicy and warm. It’s very well balanced and I really like the way it wears. It’s a great perfume.

MYSP8

And my last beauty favorite is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I’m usually using one or two different concealers at a time and I was in the market for a new drugstore concealer. I liked the one I had been using previously but I wanted to try something different so I went and looked and decided on this one. I have this in two shades, 5, Ivory and 10, Fair. I’ve been using 5 for brightening under my eyes and 10 for everywhere else and I’m really liking it. I like the formulation, it wears well throughout the day and it blends so nicely. If you’re looking for a new concealer I would definitely recommend giving this one a try.

CON1

Moving on, I have a random favorite and it’s Icy Hot. I’m currently dealing with some shoulder pain and have been trying to use ice but during the day when I’m working and doing stuff it’s just not convenient to have to use an ice pack so my doctor told me to use Icy Hot, which I’ve used for various things in the past, if there’s a time when it really hurts. So I’ve been doing that off and on and for the most part it does help and I think it smells good so that’s a win.

My second to last favorite is the Indy 500 aka The Greatest Spectacle in Racing. This year was the 103rd running of the Indy 500 and it did not disappoint. I’ve been watching the race every year since I can remember and it’s an absolute favorite of mine. The flyover for this year was a heritage flight featuring the A-10, the F-16, the P-51 and the P-40 and it was so well done. And the race was incredibly exciting. Simon Pagenaud led most of the race after qualifying on the pole, then had an incredible battle with Alexander Rossi during the last ten laps before pulling out the win. It was amazing to watch and I was on the edge of my seat. So huge congrats to Simon Pagenaud and his entire team.

And my last favorite is a music favorite, it’s Live From Daryl’s House. Basically Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates has various musicians come over to his house and they hang out and play music. I think this was actually on TV but I’ve been watching it on YouTube at the recommendation of my dad who is a Hall and Oates fan. It’s really fun, there’s great music and if you haven’t checked it out I would recommend it.

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.

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

May favorites

Hi everyone,

As this month is almost over, where did the time go, I wanted to do my May favorites.  This month I think I got a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it. Starting off with beauty, we have a couple of items from my May Glam Bag from Ipsy and if you haven’t read that post, I’ll link it below. The first is the Jelly Pong Pong Supercharged Super Intense eyeshadow duo in Electric. The first time I wore this I used both colors and blended them and it was very pretty, but since then I’ve worn them on their own and I really like both colors. I definitely recommend it.

MYGB3

Next up we have the Pixi by Petra Endless Silky eye pen in BlackNoir. I always like to try different eyeliner because you never know what you’re going to like and what’s going to work for you and this really went to the top for me. It is really silky and smooth when you apply it and it lasts all day.

MYGB4

My next favorite is the Urban Decay Afterglow 8 hour powder highlighter in Sin. I always talk about how much I love Urban Decay and this highlighter makes me love them even more. It’s in a champagne shade and it does wonders. It’s really glowy and it’s long lasting. If you’re looking for a new highlighter definitely give this one a try.

My last Glam Bag favorite is the Caked Makeup Lip Fondant in Low Key. This is a gorgeous color and it lasts all day, but beyond that it smells like cake batter. Like actually, and it’s fantastic. No matter what I want to buy more of their Lip Fondants, but if they all smell like cake batter that will make it even better.

MYGB5

And my last beauty favorite is the Bath and Body Works Cucumber Melon shower gel. I’ve always really liked this shower gel, it’s summery and it makes my skin feel nourished. I just ordered another one because I’m down to the last couple drops in my current bottle.

Moving to I guess kitchen items, I have two favorites. The first is the Mr. Coffee 3-Quart Iced Tea Maker. I had this iced tea maker for absolute ages, I really liked it and got a lot of use out of it. And when it finally quit on me I had to order another one. It’s getting to that time of the year where the weather is gorgeous and a lot of outdoor parties are happening, and iced tea is a popular drink. So I think you can get this in three colors, but I bought mine in blue and I’ll leave a link to it below.

The next item is the Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven. I had been wanting a dutch oven for ages because there’s so many uses and you can cook so many different dishes in them. My sister has one and wanted another for her birthday, and after seeing the one my mom bought her I knew this was the one I wanted. I bought the Caribbean Blue, 6 quart. But you can get different colors and quart sizes and I’ll link that below as well.

Next I have two TV show favorites. the first I know I am incredibly late to the party on, but it’s Sherlock. I was told forever that I should watch Sherlock and I never did, but recently I was looking for something to watch on Netflix and came across it. I watched the first three seasons in a couple of days. I honestly really love it. The fourth season was just added to Netflix, and I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. So if you have watched season four no spoilers please.

And my second favorite TV show this month is on History channel. It’s called JFK Declassified: Tracking Oswald. Basically a retired CIA agent, like a lot of people, was never satisfied with what came out of the Warren Commission report and since over 2 million documents about the JFK assassination have been declassified and released he wanted to do his own investigation. I am a huge history nerd and things like this really fascinate me. I don’t have as much information on this as I do other things throughout history, but this has more conspiracy theories than anything else, so it’s interesting. Last summer History channel did a show about DB Cooper and I loved it. DB Cooper is closer to home for me, so I have more information and I have my theories. If you guys have any theories on either, I’d love to know what you think.

And my last favorite for May is the song Thunderstruck by AC/DC. I’ve liked this song for a long time, as many people have, but I’ve been using it as a pump up song when I workout and it’s been working great. If you haven’t heard definitely look it up on YouTube. It’s a great song.

That about wraps it up for this post, if we have any of the same favorites this month let me know. And if not, I’d love to know what you’ve been loving this month.

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