Now that the Halloween candy is out and everyone is already deciding what to dress up as on the 31st, I figured it's time to gather up some of my favorite things lately. Which is a long way of saying, welcome to my first monthly favorites blog post! I haven't really done a current favorites type of situation since my May Favorites video, which obviously was many months ago. But I want to start making it an actual monthly thing here on the blog. While my list isn't exactly the longest thing ever, these few things have been getting some serious use lately.
Maybelline Matte and Poreless Foundation.
--when I first tried this a few months ago, I hated it. I thought I liked it and then realized I hated it. But recently it's been all the rage so I decided to pick it up again and now I can't put it down. I absolutely love it. Maybe the difference is in my skincare because I don't know how I hated this before. It's fantastic!
L'oreal EverCreme Nourishing Leave-In.
--this is another one that I stuffed away months ago but for unknown reasons. But I ran out of whatever I was using and desperately grabbed this from the back of shelf. Any of you curly/frizzy hair friends know what desperate means when you need a leave-in conditioner. I love the smell and most importantly it makes my fried hair so soft!
ColourPop Ultra Matte in Solow.
--when these released I snatched up three of them to try out. I got Mars, Lychee and my all time fave lip color Solow. To be honest, I haven't even worn Mars and Lychee yet. But I swipe Solow on every time I reach for a lip color and I'm always satisfied.
Makeup Geek Eyeshadows//Mango Tango & Cosmopolitan.
--I've raved about MUG shadows before and I probably always will. As seen in my "Get Ready With Me in Palm Springs" video, these two colors go beautifully together. I've been putting a little bit of them in my crease almost daily. It's a nice simple warm touch.
Adidas Superstars (shell toes!).
--I can't count how many pairs of shelltoes I've had since middle school, and multiple colors. But I do know that it's been a few years since I restocked on a pair. Until this spring. I got the good ol' classics and I've had my feet in them all summer long. They literally go with every outfit possible. Jeans, leggings, sweatpants, a day dress, anything! And they're made with a comfy ortho insole now so it's almost like walking on clouds.
Victoria's Secret PJ's.
--when it's 100 degrees every day and night, you want something loose and light to lounge around in. I've been practically living in this satin cami and short set. And in case you're interested, they're currently on clearance!
--Love Myself/Hailee Steinfeld is catchy AF
--Here/Alessia Cara. legit straight up talent. like a fresh mix of Fiona Apple, Adele and Alicia Keys.
--Same Old Love/Selena Gomez. girl is killing it lately, the beat on this one is so feel good.
