My Current Beauty Faves!

Hey everyone! I feel like it’s been quite some time since I’ve done a monthly favourites post. With everything going on this summer, I feel like I haven’t had enough products to include in a single favourites post, and I wasn’t trying to waste your time by having you guys only read about a single product. So I’ve compiled a list of beauty products that I have been loving over the past couple of months and put them all in one post. Enjoy!

May Favourites

Another month has flown by! May was a really good month for me. ALBOE turned 1, I got the chance to spend a lot of quality time with people and through keeping up with consistent workouts, I’ve been feeling myself getting stronger and seeing those baby gainzzzz come in! Of course, I’m still beginning, but wow, I’ve been feeling really good lately. I think it also has a lot to do with the nice weather. But anyways. Here are all the things I’ve been loving this month. You’ll notice this list is pretty random and all over the place tbh, but I think that makes monthly favourites posts really fun.

April Favourites

Hey everyone! Another month over means another month of favourites. This one is short and sweet, but everything on this list of favourites have been things I’ve used practically non stop this entire month. I hope April has treated you as well as it has treated me!

Also, like I mentioned before, my blogs turns one year old in exactly a week (which is so crazy to me, it really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long). I’m doing something special and fun that I’ve been planning for a couple weeks now, so stay tuned. I really hope you guys think it’s cool because if not, I’ll be pretty sad LOL.

March Favourites

I apologize if you’re seeing this post again! I completely forgot I had it scheduled for today at 12, but I also forgot to insert pictures and edit the post. My mistake hehe.

Another month done! I’ve felt so refreshed this month, and I’ve been really investing more time in my blog (I hope you can tell hehe). I challenged myself to stick to a posting schedule, every Tuesday and Friday, and it’s been working out pretty well for me. It forces me to spend more time than ever on my blog, and come up with creative ideas, and it keeps me accountable. I think from now on, I’m going to try and stick with it and post every Tuesday and Friday and see where that leads me.  Hopefully it also gives you something to look forward to (or just something to read) on those days. I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback this month, and it really motivates me, so thanks to everyone for their kind words!

To be honest, this months faves are kind of random since I didn’t try many makeup/beauty products this month. Nonetheless (wow I really just used that word), I hope you enjoy, and let me know about some of your favourites!

December Favorites

December flew by. Can’t believe it’s aready the end of the month! Just a couple more days until my birthday! But honestly. This month has been so crazy, as it usually is. Stress has been high because of shcool, but I’m pleased to say that I did extremely well in all of my classes, so the hard work paid off. Also, as I’m sure many of you can relate to, I’ve been caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season (check out my Vlogmas vlogs if you haven’t already!). And as if life couldn’t get any more crazier, I picked up food poisoning for the first time in my life, and let me tell you, it was not a fun experience. I would not wish that on my worst enemy!

But you didn’t come here for a review of my month, you came here for my December favorites! So without further ado, here they are!

Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish – Bare Bones

2016-12-31 01.46.25 1.jpg

This colour has been on my nails this entire month, which never usually happens. I really like the way it looks against my skin and it’s neutral so it will definitely work with anything. Not the most festive colour, especially considering that it was December, but you all know I’m a simple gal. The only thing about myself that I like to be flashy is my highlight okuurrrrr.

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster

2016-12-31 02.22.12 1.jpg

Okay so I’ve been using this for a couple months but I think this has made such a difference in my skin and has made it’s way into my everyday skincare army. It really helps with hydration and smoothness of my skin and I think it has helped a bit in making my skin brighter. The orangey/citrus scent of this is a refreshing burst and (I think) adds to how good my skin feels. Then again I could just be coming up with ways to persuade you to try this out. Who knows.

Vaseline Rosy lips

2016-12-31 02.22.13 1.jpg

I use Vaseline Cocoa Radiant lotion and got this as a free sample with it. It’s pretty much just Vaseline for your lips, but with a very light tint of pink and is rose scented. I usually don’t like rose scents but the scent of this is very light so I don’t mind it.

Too Faced Natural Matte palette

2016-12-31 02.22.14 1.jpg

I’ve talked about this pretty much everywhere but here it is again. This is my first high end eyeshadow palette and I think this is perfect for me. Perfect selection of warm neutrals that are all matte and extremely buttery. And the packaging is perfect, I could stare at it all day!

And that’s it. I can’t believe it’s the last day of 2016. I hope you all have had a fulfilling year and that 2017 will be even better for you. Realistically though, you will put in the effort to make 2017 a better one. Don’t sit around wishing for a measure of time to make your life better, get up and do it yourself!! I’ll see you all in the new year, take care!

November Favourites

November has been a crazy month (but I feel like that’s what I said in my October favourites… and every other favourites post I’ve made) and I haven’t been as active as I would like for that reason. I was looking at my planner and realized there’s only two more weeks left of school, like this semester has just flown by. Regardless, here are some things I’ve been loving this month!

Ardell 120 Demi lashes

2016-11-27 03.33.22 1.jpgI had the worst luck with lashes in October. I went through three pairs in the span of two weeks! Take it from me, never fall asleep or cry with fake lashes on. Anyways, as most of you know, the Ardell Baby Wispies were my go to lash, but I swear, every time I went to WalMart they were A L W A Y S sold out. I even resorted to going to an actual drugstore, where I knew they would be more expensive, because thats how desperate I was. They weren’t there either, so I ended up just buying these the next time I went to WalMart. They’re a bit longer than the Baby Wispies, which I didn’t think I’d like, but I don’t mind the length. They’re pretty natural looking, so if I wear them without eyeliner, it kind of looks like I’m wearing lash extensions. These are one of those lashes that I always get compliments on whenever I wear them!

Maison Margiela REPLICA – Lipstick On

2016-11-27 03.33.21 1.jpg

I am currently on a quest to find a new scent, so when I placed my order during the VIB sale, I added this perfume sample into my cart. I’m not even going to try and attempt to describe the scent because I know I’ll fail really badly, but I will say that when I wear this, I feel mature and feminine. It’s not the lightest scent, but it isn’t overpowering either and it lingers all day. I haven’t smelled anything like it and I think that’s why I like it so much. I don’t think I’ll purchase the full size just yet because I haven’t gotten around to testing out other scents and the full size of this is $135! But I have been wearing it everyday for the last part of November and I’ve really been enjoying it.

I was introduced to this Google Chrome plugin earlier this month and I really like it. It replaces your home/new tab page with a nice picture of a location the current time. It also displays other things, depending on what you set it to. Mine displays the temperature, a to-do list and a quote. It’s just something nice to look at that helps you be a little bit more productive.

Bruno Mars – 24k Magic

I was disappointed at first because there are only 9 songs on the album, but my brother pointed out that it’s about quality, not quantity. And this is definitely a quality album. I was seriously in love with every song. The entire album sounds like it was made in the 80s/90s, and I love old school music. I couldn’t stop playing it as soon as I heard it, it was pretty much on repeat the entire month. You all need to take a listen!!! My favourite song is That’s What I Like.

With the end of November and the start of December, it means one thing… Vlogmas! I don’t know if I’ll be doing it again this year, but we’ll see how it goes. Also I CANNOT believe that 2016 is almost over. I remember the first day of the year as if it was yesterday. So many things have changed since then, but I guess that’s the beauty / curse of time. Let me know some of your favourites this month and until then take care! I hope this month hasn’t been as stressful for you as it has been for me. Which also reminds me that I really need to start taking better care of myself. The effects of stress have been showing in my body and mind and it isn’t pleasant… Maybe I should take it easy on the wine LOL.
