March Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought that today would be the perfect day to do my March favorites. I have a pretty good and fun mix of favorites this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my March BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara. This is one of those holy grail makeup items for me, it has a really nice and creamy formula that doesn’t smudge, run, transfer or flake. The brush is on the fluffier side and it really does a great job of coating all of your lashes. Plus you get a ton of volume and length without your lashes feeling heavy. This is a mascara I always recommend.

My next favorite is the Lime Crime Venus 3 Eyeshadow Palette. I wanted this palette when I saw the spoilers for the box and I’m so happy that I got it. This is an 8 pan palette with a shade range of lilac, rose gold, mauve and brown. There are also five different finishes, matte, foil, sparkly matte, sparkly metallic and metallic. I’ve been using this palette quite a bit and I have a 3 recent looks post coming on it. I don’t want to give away too much of my thoughts on it right now, but I will say that I definitely recommend giving this palette a try.

And my last beauty favorite is the Maven Beauty Rose Water Setting Spray. This is a product that I was slightly unsure about when I saw it because I really don’t like the essence of rose in beauty and skincare products, but I do love a good setting spray. After a few times of using it I can tell you that I do really like it. Once you spray it the smell dissipates pretty quickly and what you’re left with is makeup that it locked into place for up to 16 hours and won’t smudge.

Moving on to more random favorites, I first have a fashion favorite and it’s a pair of shoes. It’s not just any pair of shoes though, these are the Hoka One One Cavu 3’s. I’ve been looking for a good workout/running shoe for a long time and hands down these are the best ones I’ve tried. They’re comfortable, supportive and they don’t give me shin splints, which is huge. These are a little more expensive, but the quality and comfort is worth every penny. I also have to thank Tony Kanaan for recommending Hoka, because I might not have found them otherwise. 

IMG_7451

IMG_7538

My next favorite is a candy favorite and it’s the Hershey’s Cookies and Creme bar. Cookies and creme is one of my favorite flavor combos, and I’ve always liked the Hershey bars but they’ve been revamped and now have more cookie pieces which make it that much better. Definitely recommend.

IMG_7558 

My second to last favorite is a racing favorite and it’s an event that took place last weekend, Funny Car Chaos. I watched the live stream of the race and it was so fun to see so many Funny Cars show up to qualify and race, every round was great, the races were close and it was a great event to watch. 

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month it’s Eric Clapton, in March I spend a lot of time listening to Eric because it’s his birthday month and while I listen to him regularly in general, but it’s definitely more in March. 

That abut 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 March favorites were. 

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

February Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! As it’s the end of the month, I thought that it would be the perfect time do my February favorites. I have a good and fun mix this month, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a few favorites from my February BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Nostalgia palette. This is a 15 pan palette, you get a mix of mattes and metallics and the color range is great. I’m having a lot of fun with this palette, all of the shadows are nicely pigmented, you get a great color payoff and they blend really nicely. I definitely recommend this if you want a fun palette.

IMG_7323

IMG_7324

IMG_7325

My next Boxy favorite is the Wander Beauty Double Date Lip and Cheek. This is a double layer balm that can be used on the lips and the cheeks. The first layer is a nice light pink that builds really nicely and blends well and that is in the shade Rendezvous. The second layer is a shimmer free balm that gives a nice glow and hydration and that is in the shade Swipe. You also get a little mirror on the second layer, making this perfect to throw in your bag. I personally like this more for the lips than the cheeks, but from when I tested it on the cheeks it did look and feel nice. 

IMG_7327

IMG_7328

IMG_7329

My second to last beauty favorite and last Boxy favorite is the Saint Luxe Beauty Limited Edition Liner Duo. This is a set of two brown toned lip liners, the first Love Letter, is what I would call a lighter cinnamon brown and the second, Secret Admirer, is a darker more chocolate brown. These are really smooth and creamy when you apply them and they’re long wearing. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for brown liners. 

IMG_7330

IMG_7331

IMG_7333

And my last beauty favorite is my Valentine’s Day makeup look. I did a post all about this look, how I did it and the looks I did leading up to Valentine’s Day, which I’ll link below. I like this look a lot, it’s bright and fun and I’m really happy with how it turned out. 

IMG_7389

Moving on I have a fashion favorite, and it’s my Valentine’s Day outfit. I usually like to wear something in some shade of pink, this year it was really cold and snowy, so I thought this was the perfect time to wear the cropped sweater I got for Christmas. I think it’s adorable and it paired well with the makeup look I did. 

IMG_7369

My next favorite is weather favorite and it’s the snow we got. I always want snow during the winter months and we don’t always get it, but we did for a couple days and it was really fun. 

IMG_7357

Moving on I have a food favorite and it’s this Honey Mustard Snack Mix from Costco. This has five different things in it, honey mustard and onion pretzel pieces, seasoned almond poppers, honey roasted sesame sticks, honey roasted almond splits and savory chickpeas. These are so, so good, the pretzel pieces are my favorite. I definitely recommend these if you’re looking for a good snack. 

IMG_7455

And my last favorite is a music favorite. This month I had a little playlist of love songs and such for Valentine’s Day and I really liked it. It had Take That, Eric Clapton, The Doobie Brothers, Little Mix and more. I think themed playlists are so fun, and if it’s not something you do already, 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 February favorites were. 

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

January Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month I thought it would be the perfect time to do my January favorites. This month was busy, but I still managed to get a good group of favorites together.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my January BoxyCharm box and I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it yet. My first Boxy favorite is the Ace Beaute Bronzed In Paradise Palette. This has four bronzers in rectangular pans and they range from light to dark browns. They’re very buildable and blendable and if you’re looking for a face palette, I definitely recommend giving this one a try.

IMG_7184

IMG_7185

IMG_7186

IMG_7188

My last Boxy favorite is the Bali Balm Sweet Orange & Coconut Lip Balm. This smells so good. It has sweet orange and coconut essential oils, Vitamin C which evens skin tone and the coconut moisturizes and makes your lips really soft and supple. This is great for the winter months because the cold really can chap your lips, but this would be great year round.

IMG_7187

My second to last beauty favorite is the KVD Go Big Or Go Home Volumizing Mascara in Trooper. This is a long wearing, smudge resistant mascara that really does live up to it’s name and gives pretty extreme volume. This has a pretty decent wand and it does coat all of your lashes. I like this mascara a lot more than I thought, and I definitely recommend it. 

IMG_7045

My last beauty favorite is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Pro Pigment Collection Vault. I love these palettes, they each have nine shadows and there’s so much versatility within them. I’m going to do a recent looks post about each palette, but I’m having a lot of fun with them and I 100% recommend them. 

IMG_7077

Moving on, I have a couple of fashion favorites. The first is my blue light glasses. I’ve been wanting a pair of blue light glasses for a while and now that I have them I’m so happy. Not only are they super cute, but I have definitely been able to tell a difference since I’ve been wearing them. These are from Zenni Optical and if you’re looking for a pair of blue light or glasses in general, I would check out Zenni because they have super reasonable prices. 

IMG_7034

My next fashion favorite is some new Indianapolis Motor Speedway gear. I wanted something new for the upcoming IndyCar season and I didn’t have anything to rep IMS, so I got a hoodie that is a light/medium blue and says ‘Indianapolis Motor Speedway’ in white and red glitter with the logo under it. 

IMG_7210

The second thing I got is a v neck t shirt that says ‘W. 16th St’ in white with the logo on the end and it’s shaped like a street sign. 

IMG_7228

My next favorite is my birthday. This year was definitely different than other birthdays I’ve had and even what I was wanting to do, but my family and friends made a great birthday weekend for me and it was a lot of fun. 

My second to last favorite is my new gaming chair. I’ve wanted and needed a new chair for a while so I asked around and Tony Kanaan recommended Maingear, so I looked around their website and found one that I wanted. The chair that I went with is the Forma R in white. This is a pricier chair, but the quality you get is definitely worth it. It’s pretty much broken in now and is super comfortable. It comes with a pillow, which is incredibly soft, and I use it when I’m gaming at night and talking to friends. 

IMG_7161

IMG_7160

My last favorite is a music favorite and it’s my 2020 Spotify Wrapped playlist. This was my December music favorite, but I’m still loving it because it has a great mix of music. 

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 January favorites were. 

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

December Favorites

Hi everyone,

As it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my December favorites. This month as been really busy, but I still managed to find a good group of favorites.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of BoxyCharm favorites, I’ll link that post down below if you haven’t read it. My first Boxy favorite is the Tarte Maneater mascara. I was a little but unsure about this mascara when I opened it because it has a spiky plastic brush and those tend to not be my favorite, but I really like this one. It says that the wand is custom made and it has over 500 bristles to coat every lash, and I feel like it does. The formula is nice and buildable and I haven’t experienced any clumping or transferring. Definitely recommend giving this mascara a try if you want your lashes to stand out.

IMG_6809

IMG_6810

My next beauty favorite is the Ofra Cosmetics Pressed Banana Brightening Powder. This does have a light banana scent, reminds me of the banana flavored Laffy Taffy. I really like this powder, I use it to set my foundation/concealer and brighten the under eye area. 

IMG_6811

IMG_6812

IMG_6813

And my last beauty favorite is the MAC Matte Lipstick in 612, Russian Red. This is a super pigmented lipstick and it’s a nice deeper red, but it’s not too deep. 

IMG_6814

IMG_6815

IMG_6818

Moving on to more random things, I have a fashion favorite and it’s a pair of camo leggings. I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping online and I came across these leggings. I’m of the school of thought that you can never have too many pairs of leggings and I didn’t actually have any camo ones prior to this, so I had to pick these up. They’re super comfy and they fit great. 

IMG_6899

And my last couple of favorites are music favorites. The first is my new Epiphone Les Paul Acoustic-Electric Concert Ukulele. Since I tuned this I’ve been playing around with it and I’m loving it. Not only is it beautiful, but it sounds incredible. I can’t wait to get an amp so I can see what it sounds like electrically. 

IMG_6923

My second music favorite is my 2020 Spotify Wrapped playlist. This has some of my favorites on it and I’ve been playing it quite a bit over the past couple weeks, it’s a great mix of music. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to thank everyone for reading, following, commenting and everything else. It means a lot and I always appreciate it. 

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

November Favorites

Hi everyone,

Today, as it’s the end of the month I’m going to be doing my November favorites. Even though I feel like this month absolutely flew by, I have a pretty good mix of favorites so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my November BoxyCharm box and if you haven’t read that, I’ll link it down below. My first Boxy favorite is the Natasha Denona Peak Palette. This is an exclusive, five pan palette for BoxyCharm and it has all of the colors of fall. All of these shades comes from the Safari, Sunrise and and Biba palettes. I’ve done a few looks with this palette so far and I really like it. All the shades are really smooth, very pigmented and blend really nicely.

IMG_6596

IMG_6597

IMG_6598

This is the look I did with the palette on Thanksgiving. I’m really happy with how it came out. 

IMG_6681

My second Boxy favorite is the Bodyography Eye Pencil Duo. These pencils are infused with coconut oil and they glide on nicely. You do get a nice crisp line with these but you can also easily smudge them. I got mine in the shades Onyx and Black Walnut. Onyx isn’t the blackest black but it does add depth and pulls together a look and Black Walnut is a very dark brown that is great for smoking out a more neutral look. 

IMG_6599

IMG_6600

IMG_6601

And my last beauty favorite is from the Fall Walmart beauty box. It’s the Gold Bond Ultimate Strength and Resilience lotion. This is a really good lotion for this time of year because it has seven plumping moisturizers, three vitamins, proteins and lipids. So it keeps your skin radiant and moisturized. 

IMG_6665

Moving on I have a holiday favorite and it’s Thanksgiving. Even though Thanksgiving was a little different this year I still really enjoyed it. I did glam from the waist up but had leggings and slippers on which I don’t normally do. But overall it was a very chill day and I still managed to eat too much food. 

My second to last favorite is a Twitch stream and it’s Tony Kanaan’s Twitch stream. I didn’t really know that TK was on Twitch until I saw a tweet from him saying that he was live and since then I’ve only missed a few streams. It’s genuinely such a fun environment to be in, he’s really interactive with his chat and I laugh so much when I’m in his stream. If you’re looking for a race car driver or iRacing stream to watch on Twitch I definitely recommend checking his stream out. And if you see me in chat say hi. 

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is AC/DC’s new album Power Up (PWR UP as it’s written on the album cover). There was a lot of hype behind this album and it’s definitely lived up to all the hype. It’s very much like a classic AC/DC album, in the sound and style and it’s just a feel good album. It’s what the world needed right now for sure. If you haven’t heard it yet, I definitely recommend giving it a listen. 

That about wraps it up for this post, I want to mention because I haven’t that I am doing Blogmas again this year and I’m excited about it, so look out for those posts. 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 November :).

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.

IMG_6349

IMG_6355

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. 

IMG_6346

IMG_6348

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. 

IMG_6356

IMG_6357

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. 

IMG_6207

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. 

IMG_6209

IMG_6210

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.

IMG_6223

IMG_6226

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 :).

August Favorites

Hi everyone,

Happy Friday! Today, as it’s the end of the month, I thought it would be the perfect time to do my August favorites. I tried out quite a few things this month and I feel like I have a pretty good mix, so let’s get into it.

Starting with beauty I have a few favorites from my August BoxyCharm box, and if you haven’t read that I’ll link it below. My first Boxy favorite is the MineTan Body Skin Hydra Glow Sleep Serum. This has a triple action hyaluronic acid formula with time release technology so it moisturizes while you sleep and is supposed to give you glowing skin when you wake up. I really like this, it sinks in super quickly, my skin feels really soft and moisturized and I can see that it’s more glowy. I will say that the first time I went to use this the pump was broken, but I managed to MacGyver it and it works great now. If you’re looking for a new nighttime serum I would recommend giving this a try.

IMG_6082

My next Boxy favorite is the Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer. I was interested to see how this would compare to my favorite eye primers, Too Faced and Pretty Vulgar, and it’s just as good. This is quick drying, dries down clear, is cruelty free and not only locks in your eyeshadow all day but enhances the shadow.

IMG_6083

My second to last Boxy favorite is from the Trestique Summer Glow + Go Set and it’s the Maldives Luminescent highlighter. This highlighter is so good. It’s a gorgeous champagney shade, buildable and has a fantastic glow. I’ve been using this under my brows and in the inner corner of my eyes as well and it works so perfectly everywhere you put it. I don’t always like a cream highlighter, but this one is really creamy and blends out nicely. Definitely recommend this if you’re in the market for a new highlighter.

IMG_6130

IMG_6131

IMG_6133

IMG_6132

My last Boxy favorite is the Clarins Lip Perfector in 03 Velvet Red. So this is a liquid lipstick with a moussey texture and a velvet finish. This is deep red in color but you can see it has some berry undertones. This feels really light on the lips, it’s long lasting and because of the shea butter it does leave your lips feeling hydrated. I wasn’t sure if I would really like the cushion applicator, but I do. It applies the product evenly and smoothly.

IMG_6084

IMG_6085

IMG_6090

And my last beauty favorite is two of the Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipsticks. I did a review of two of the liquid matte mini sets, Au Naturel Nudes and Blushed Nudes, so I have a favorite from each. The first is from Au Naturel Nudes and it’s Sugar Mama. This is a peachy nude and it’s definitely true peach in color.

IMG_6001

IMG_6002

IMG_6024

My favorite from the Blushed Nudes set is Muse. This is so pretty, it’s deep rose in color and it looks so pretty on.

IMG_6014

IMG_6015

IMG_6021

Moving on I have a racing favorite and it’s the Indy 500. This year the 500 was very different than years past, but it was still super fun to watch and action packed. The USAF Thunderbirds did the flyover, Roger Penske gave the “Start Your Engines” command, there were great battles for position and ultimately Takuma Sato took home the victory, so huge congrats to him.

And my last favorite is a music favorite. It’s my Summer Rewind playlist that Spotify put together for me. It has a good mix of my favorite songs, specifically those I’ve been loving during the summer months and I’m enjoying 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 August favorites were.

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

July Favorites

Hi everyone,

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

Starting with beauty, I have a couple of favorites from my July BoxyCharm box and if you haven’t read that I’ll leave a link below. My first BoxyCharm favorite is the Clean Skin Club Vitamin C Brightening Booster. This has pineapple, watermelon and green tea extracts and it’s supposed to brighten your complexion, protect against UV damage and  help reduce signs of aging. I’ve been using this since I got it and I really like it. I can feel and see a difference in my skin. This also smells really good and it says on their website that it’s good for normal, oily, combination, dry and sensitive skin. So if you’re looking for a new element in your skincare routine I recommend this.

IMG_5859

My next Boxy favorite is the Ciate London Everyday Vacay Coconut Setting Spray. I cannot say enough good things about this, I love it. It’s infused with fresh coconut extract so you get that nice tropical, summery smell and has micro pearls so you get a glowy and dewy finish. It also comes out in a really fine mist and I prefer that in a setting spray. This dries down pretty fast and doesn’t leave you with a sticky or tacky feeling, it does lock in your makeup and the glow you get is enough that you can see it but it’s not over the top. I definitely recommend giving this a try if you haven’t.

IMG_5858

My last Boxy favorite is the Lavish Quick Color Switch Dry Brush Cleaner. This is a spongey brush cleaner that you swirl your brush on and it removes the pigment. I’ve been using this since I got it and I think it’s a great little tool to have. It picks up the pigment pretty quickly and basically does exactly what it says on the tin. I appreciate that this is easy to clean, you wash it with your favorite cleanser and let it dry before putting it back in the container.

IMG_5856

IMG_5857

And my last beauty favorite is my 4th of July makeup look. I did do a post all about this look and how I did it, which I’ll link below, but I had a lot of fun with this look and I’m really happy with how it turned out.

IMG_5784

Moving on I have a gardening favorite and it’s my sunflowers. Last summer I grew sunflowers for the first time, but when I got them they were starts and this year I decided I wanted to try and grow them from seed. I bought a packet of the heirloom sunflowers so when they bloom they should be multicolored, which I’m excited about. This year has been a little rough on them, in the beginning slugs really ate them and I was convinced they weren’t going to grow at all but I searched a ton of different gardening websites and they all recommended using copper tape which I did buy. Since putting the copper tape around my planter the slugs are gone and the sunflowers have really grown and I’m super happy with them.

IMG_5939

And my last favorite, a music favorite, is the reissue of Paul McCartney’s Flaming Pie album, this album has also been remastered. Although the massive reissue doesn’t come out in full until July 31st, there have been a few songs released already. Flaming Pie isn’t an album I’ve listened to a lot over the years, I know a small handful of the songs, but I’m excited about the reissue as a whole. There are different versions of the reissue you can get, the lavish collector’s edition includes five CDs, two DVDs and four LPs. The deluxe edition includes five CDs and two DVDs. You can also get individual editions in the form of three LPs, two LPs and two CDs. It will also be on Spotify and other streaming platforms. If you haven’t heard of the Flaming Pie album I would definitely recommend giving it a 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 favorites were.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 :).
