A new segment I wanted to start including on my blog are monthly favorites. I thought it would be a fun, interesting way to show you guys everything that I’m currently obsessing over. So, let’s get right into it!
I bought these sandals the beginning of the month at a store called VF outlet. They are by a brand called Olivia Miller. I really like how they look on my feet. I love that they go around the ankle, but it has the stretchy material, instead of a buckle. That way I can just slide them right on and run out the door. They look really cute whether you pair them with shorts, capris, or long pants. And I’ve got several compliments on them! And the best part is that they were only about $12!
Favorite Television Series
Oh my gosh, what can I even say about Scandal? My husband and I started watching the series on Netflix the end of April. And we flew through all of the episodes! We would come home from work and watch two, three, four episodes a night. Yes! It was that good! Netflix had the first three seasons available and the fourth season was still on television. So, we bought each episode individually from Amazon prime, until we got the most recent five episodes that were free on On-Demand on Charter Communications. And then the last 2 episodes we had to wait and watch them on TV when they came on. That is how obsessed we were with that show, that we watched the entire series in less than a month. It was really, really good and ended so perfectly. I cannot wait for the fifth season! If you haven’t seen this show, I highly recommend it!
I am loving Pitch Perfect 2! The first one is in my top favorite movies of all time and I’ve probably watched it about a hundred times. But, the second movie is even better! I was worried that it was going to be one of those movies that they show the only funny scenes in the trailer, but it’s not! The movie was hilarious, I was laughing so hard I was crying within the first 5 minutes of it starting. I went to see it with my aunt and cousins and I’m planning on going to see it again, because it is just that good!
I actually have two favorites this month. And that’s because I like to mix both of these together to create one wonderful, majestic scent! They both smell really good separately, but together they are just awesome. Lilly Pulitzer Squeeze is a fresh, citrus, and sweet scent. Gap Sunshine smells fresh, kind of floral and smells like straight up summer. And together they smell like the perfect summertime fragrance. The only thing I don’t really love about them is that they have a staying power of a fragrance mist, but when I use them together they last a bit longer. I just don’t expect them to last a whole day.
Favorite Makeup Item
I bought the Lorac Alter Ego Heartbreaker eye shadow pallete from Ulta at the beginning of the month and since then I’ve used it almost everyday that I wear makeup. I love every color in the pallete, but I absolutely love the lightest brown and the cream color. I use those two colors every single day. I just think it is has perfect colors for a summertime look! I absolutely love that mint green color and have nothing in my collection that is comparable. I believe this pallete is only available at Ulta and it retails for $24.
Favorite Skincare Item
At first I was really hesitant to buy the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel. I had ran out of my Aveeno face moisturizer and I didn’t really love it to repurchase it. I was just using up random moisturizers samples that I had while I researched what kind I should buy. I found a couple really good reviews on Youtube about this new Neutrogena one and I’m so happy that I decided to pick it up. It was on the pricey side, especially for a drugstore moisturizer. It retails for about$18. However, this could last you a really long time, because you really don’t need that much to cover your face. In fact, if you use too much of it, it takes a really long time to soak into your skin. It is made with water, so it is very liquidy. And if you are anything like me, make sure you tighten the cap on as soon as you are finished with it. I’m a giant ditz and I accidentally elbowed it off of my vanity and it went everywhere. So I will have to purchase one a lot sooner than I was planning on. But it is worth every penny. My face has looked so much more hydrated and soft. I also haven’t had any breakouts since using this, because it doesn’t clog my pores. I’m obsessed with this stuff and would recommend it to anyone needing a really good, hydrating face moisturizer.
I have been loving these Pretzel Crisps! Those are my favorite flavors of the moment. I love the Honey Mustard & Onion flavor and I just recently picked up the Tuscan Three Cheese flavor and really like that one as well! I just love having these as a little snack by themselves or dipped in hummus. I’ve always loved crunchy, savory things. These really help curb that craving. I’d rather have a handful of these pretzel crisps than eating chips! They have a bunch of other flavors, but I’ve really been liking these two the best!
Snapchat. Oh, snapchat. I’m slightly obsessed. I love making funny stories on there. Sometimes I don’t even realize my story is like 400 seconds. I think its really fun and I love taking funny pictures or making hilarious videos. But lets be serious, its mostly just me lip syncing crazy songs and being goofy. My username is Sararuiz3 if you want to follow me on there. I love watching everyone’s stories as well, so hit me up on Snapchat!
And that’s about everything that I am currently obsessing over the last month! Let me know what you have been loving lately and I hope you all have an awesome weekend!
Lots of Love.
