June Favorites!!!


Hello!! Gosh, I haven't done a favorites post in ages. This past spring, I really just didn't have time, and on the rare occasion I decided to try to squeeze one in, I couldn't come up with any favorites! I know, it's pathetic. I just really didn't do a lot of shopping these last few month, and everything I could come up with was either just bizarre or I've posted about it before.

I'm calling these my June Favorites, but there may be some things included that I've been loving for the past several months, and I just never got around to posting it. Anyways, without further ado, let's dive in!

Beauty:

I got this angled makeup brush a few months ago for Christmas, and at the time I really didn't use it all that much because I'm so horrible with eyeliner. But over the last month, I've been really trying to get better at it (you can ask my friend, I've been sending her pictures constantly of my successes and failures. Quite frankly I'm not sure how she puts up with me), and this brush has made eyeliner a lot easier. I can actually make it look halfway decent, a fact that I'm very proud of!

 (First off, I'm sorry for this horrible picture. My camera has been acting really weird lately and it's driving me insane.) This stuff. This. Stuff. Oh my gosh. I am in love. It's the E.L.F. Studio Makeup Mist and Set, which I purchased for $3.00 at Target. It's honestly one of the best purchases I have made recently. I always set my makeup with it before I walk out the door in the morning, and it honestly saves my life. My makeup almost never runs, even in the Southern heat. I don't get mascara smears under my eyes, and my foundation actually stays in place. This is honestly my makeup lifesaver for summer. GO GET SOME NOW. LIKE, RIGHT NOW. WELL, YOU CAN FINISH READING MY POST FIRST. BUT THEN GO GET IT. YOU'LL THANK ME LATER.

Food:

Note that I'm not using my own photo for this. That's because I don't have any left to photograph. This is the most delicious thing created. I believe that the angels dropped it down from heaven. Guys.

It's better than Nutella.

I know, I know, shocking. But this is truly the most glorious substance created. I could just eat it plain out of the jar. (It's really good on graham crackers, FYI. Or on Ritz. Or on a spoon. Y'know, whatever floats your boat.)

Books:

As I mentioned in my Summer Book List post, I never read Harry Potter when I was growing up. But over the last several months, I have become totally obsessed. Which house are you? I'm a Gryffindor:)

TV:

^^ I. LOVE. THIS. SHOW!!!! Agh. Again, I never watched this when I was younger, but I have fallen head over heels in love with Boy Meets World. It is such a good show!! I know, most of you are sitting here rolling your eyes over my new-found love of a 90's show, but that's just too bad. I. Love. It.

Music:

Y'all know that I'm obsessed with Broadway, and the Aladdin soundtrack is my latest obsession. The music in this show is just incredible. If you ever want to listen to some fabulous songs, I suggest One Jump Ahead, A Million Miles Away, and all of the different versions of Proud of Your Boy (reprises, etc.) Seriously, Proud of Your Boy is absolutely incredible. Alan Menken has done it again.

I don't have a picture for this one, but I absolutely adore the song Shut Up And Dance With Me. It's so catchy, and just so much fun to listen to. At a recent dance, my friends and I probably requested that song six times!!!

Last up, I've mentioned this artist before, but I just keep falling in love over and over again with Ed Sheeran's music. It's so beautiful and raw. I could listen to it all day!

I hope that you've enjoyed this post!! What were some of your favorites in June?

  1. Ooh I love the Favorites posts! Have you ever tried Smashbox mascara? Idk if you'd like it but I LOVE it. It makes my eyelashes look really long and it stays on really well.

    Oh my gosh how long has the Reese's stuff been a thing?? I NEED to try it. Anything with chocolate peanut butter is heaven.

    If you like Shut Up and Dance (and who doesn't?) you should listen to Anna Sun and Fixin' by Walk the Moon (same people). Those three songs are really catchy, clean and danceable (:

    1. I'm glad that you like them!! :) No, I haven't!! I'm actually going to be needing some new mascara pretty soon, so I may have to check that out. Thanks for the recommendation!

      I don't know, but it is possibly the most wonderful thing ever invented. It's right up there with electricity and WiFi.

      Ooh, I'll have to go check those songs out! Thanks!
