Monthly Favorites – May 2016

Hey Guys!
I have been slacking this past month! Shaking my head at me 🙁 .
I was in the middle of a very important transition with my career and had to focus on getting settled in. I am back and am working on establishing a routine with my new schedule. Excuses aside, let’s talk favorites!!
Favorite Skincare Item (s)

Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser $45.00

I have been using this for about 1.5 months now and I love it! My pores are SO much smaller and the blackheads are gone!! I have been using this 1-2x a day and the need to use my Biore Pore strips has gone down from twice a week to once every two weeks!! It is an expensive cleanser but it does clean the skin really well. You can always get a sample at Sephora to give it a try before you splurge. I have super duper sensitive acne prone skin and this did NOT break me out which is a major plus! A little does a go long way as well.


Tree Hut Moroccan Rose Shea Sugar Scrub 
$7.69

This stuff is amazinggg! It smells divine and leaves my skin feeling baby soft! It is gentle enough to use on a daily basis but I like use it 2-3x a week to exfoliate my body. Give it a try!


Favorite Beauty Item (s) 


Beauty Blender  $20.00

I have been using the pink one on and off for about 3 years now. Last month, I picked up the Black Beauty Blender and oh my lord! I have no idea what the difference between this and the pink one is but I have not put this down since I got it. I like the pink, I love the black one. The pink one is good, don’t get me wrong but I felt as if it accentuated my pores but this black one blends products out so seamlessly. Def give this a try.

Tarte Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner $24.00

I have been on the hunt for a good quality eyeliner for few years now. I am glad my search has ended with finding this one. It is a two in one, so one side is liquid eyeliner and the other is a pencil form. Both work great, lasted throughout the day in the hot humidity in Cartagena and are so easy to use! I like using the pencil one to tight line and the liquid side for the wing. Great price, great quality, great product!

Nyx Powder Blush in Desert Rose – $. 5.00 ( On Sale for $2.50 right now!)

Another item I have used every other day! Love the finish of this product, color pay off is excellent and suits the olive/tan skin tones very well! This is the only blush I took to Cartagena and it went with all my outfits and different makeup looks!


Favorite Moment 
This definitely had to be my trip to Cartagena. It was the perfect escape for me. You can read the blogpost here.
Favorite Fashion Item (s)  


Steve Madden Sandals  $79.95

I have worn these shoes almost every other day for the past month and half ! They go with so many different outfits and are SO comfortable! The quality is great because despite me wearing it every other day, they still look brand new. They go well with jeans, skirts and dresses! Check out this look book to see them in action.


Striped Boatneck Tee  $12.00

I have lived in this shirt this past month! It is so comfy and so affordable!! I love the boatneck neckline, I think it is very flattering. I am going to back to get more colors once the target near my house stocks up on my sizes.

Favorite Music 
This song has been on replay for the past month! I love how fun it is, makes me want to just get up and start dancing.

Favorite Show 

Game of Thrones!!! If you don’t know what I am talking about, you need to get with the program and start watching this show like now ( jk, maybe?). This season thus far has to be my most favorite season of the series!

Well that’s it for this month’s favorites!
Was there anything you loved this past month?!

Until next time…
