Favorite time already! HERE. WE. Goooo!
(ps - I don't think anyone gets as excited about this as I.)
Covergirl: Hot Passion
Why? Um.. I don't rightly know, but I am trying to step out and be a little more bold. I feel like each time I put this on, I allow myself to dab just a tad more than the time before.
I'm enjoying experimenting with new lipstick. I also tried the Milani Coral (can't remember the exact name) and I don't think Coral is a good route for me, unfortunately...
Revlon: Pink Sugar
When in doubt, go nude.
Okay, that wasn't my best advice, but..with lips, why not?!
Sure, it has a little pink to it, but this is so sheer.
It has somewhat of a sparkle to it, also.
Naturally Upper Canada: Pressed Olive Avacado Lip Butter
I found this at Cracker Barrel last weekend, and I am IN love!!
I love all chap sticks, basically, (except for Black ChapStick and Yellow Carmex) so this is no huge surprise. What I love about it is that it is pressed and somewhat hard, but once you apply it, it seems to melt. It isn't greasy or too flavored, and it stays on well.
It's also organic :)
I have been a slacker this month, but I have not neglected completely!
It is like $.69 at Sally's, and your nails won't even know what a "chip" is. For real.
China Glaze: Pink Voltage (Neon)
It may not look very Neon-y here, but it is. I have worn this on my toes since I got it, and I wish I had it while we were at the beach. I love my toes with this color!! It's so much fun.
Now, before you say "that junk is expensive"... I already know. I drool over the Philosophy line while I'm in Ulta because I love their product names, but I will NOT break down and buy a $32.00 facial cleanser.
Birchbox included a sample of this in this month's package, and while it smells a tad like hospital soap, it lathers soo well, and it is a very thin consistency.
Physicians Formula: Organic Wear Mascara
This does something outrageous to my eyelashes.
It also does something outrageous to my left eye (like, make it water uncontrollably? I look like I sprung an oil leak with it running down my cheek.)
Hm, that may have been somewhat of an exaggeration, but it does cause my eye to mysteriously water at random times which is highly unfortunate because I love the product.
*ps - you can "buy one get one free" with Organic Wear at Target now!
and Clearly, it's organic! :)
Aveeno: Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
I haven't ever used a tinted moisturizer until now, but I decided it would be a good investment since I don't like wearing foundation during the summer. So, I've been applying this, skipping moisturizer, and then using a setting powder. I love it! It isn't oily at all, not too much coverage, and it has an SPF too.
ANNNND it's organic :)
Amika: Oil Treatment
I also got this in my June Birchbox, but I stuck it in my bag to take with me to Honduras as well as the beach in place of my heat protectant, and I love it. It is comparable to (*MY HOLY GRAIL ITEM*) Chi Serum, and although it is still in second place - I have enjoyed this stuff. It isn't too heavy on my hair, and it doesn't have too strong of a smell, either.
Oh, don't get excited... I don't "loooove" the CB now, but I DO love their grilled chicken fingers.
More restaurants should offer them!
I especially love their Honey Mustard.
....and their Coca-Cola cake....
Okay, now I want to leave the computer abruptly, go get one of these babies, and slobber while eating it.
I'm really not kidding, I could eat this for every meal.
I. love. them.
WHY am I just now finding out how amazing they are?!
WHERE HAVE I BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!
DKNY: Be Delicious
Yummy! It's such a fun, fruity summer scent! I don't own it, but I spray it everytime I see it in a store.
I found it 25 dollars cheaper on Amazon, but I haven't placed my order yet!!
Special K: Fruit Crisps / Strawberry
Like pop tarts?
On a diet?
If you answered yes to both of these questions, call now....
just run to the grocery & grab these.
because they're good.
and you can have 2 for 100 cals.
and you'll thank me.
and love me foreverrrr.
Lastly, my new favorite place to look at makeup sale racks.
and nail polish.
and travel size junk.
I think I'm a makeup-nail polish hoarder who needs intense rehabilitation.
isn't the first step admitting??
"i love you" - eli young band
"one summer gone" - ashton shepherd
"dear God" - avenged sevenfold
"apologies" grace potter & the nocturnals
"gone" - ashley monroe
Memories of the Month:
We saw Aunt Mary at the beach, and we had dinner with her.
I went on my first deep sea fishing trip, and I can't wait to go back.
Daddy I & went out on the boat for the first time together.
Natalie & I played more rounds of UNO than I could begin to count.
Matt and Hannah got engaged on the beach this past Friday!
*none of these photos are mine, and i take no credit for any of them.
