July Favorites!

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Hey Everyone!

I can NOT believe that July is over. This summer is flying by, and I'm not happy about it. I am DREADING going back to school, and working along with balancing my boyfriend, friends, family and this blog. I love being creative and outsourcing my ideas, but school is so time consuming, and I hate when I have to make a decision about doing school work or creating ideas for my blog. I mean obviously the smarter choice is school, but I don't always see it that way, which is why school makes everything  more complicated.

Anyways, enough of the boing school talk and on to my July favorites! July was a fun month. I worked like a dog, but I also did some fun things. I actually JUST got back from a trip to Newport, RI with my boyfriend and it was so much fun! We walked around downtown, went to a casino, toured the incredible mansions, and just took the scenery in. I would live in Newport in half a second. The shopping is great, the beaches are beautiful and the restaurants are on another level. I loved every second of it.

Once again, getting sidetracked....

So before I ramble more here are my July beauty favorites!

July Beauty Favorites

My first favorite is the NARS Kabuki Ita brush. I did a review of this brush not too long ago, and I just love it. It's so so perfect for contouring and highlighting. I can't get enough of it. The slim width of the brush gives the bristles a perfect angle to create the sculpted look on your face when you are contouring. I use it everyday and it was well worth the $55.
Next is the Lorac Pro Palette. I got this palette not too long ago and I'm just obsessed. I've used it for like two weeks straight, and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. I love the shimmer shades. They blend beautifully and the neutral colors are right up my alley.
My next favorite is the eos Shaving Cream. I love this stuff! I have the pomegranate raspberry scent and it smells AMAZING! It doesn't foam like a regular shaving cream, but it still leaves the legs super smooth and moisturized. What I love about this cream is you can use it either wet or dry, so if you are in a hurry you can shave your legs on the go!
Next is the NARS Cleansing Milk. I love this stuff. It has a citrus scent to it and is perfect for my sensitive skin. It leaves my skin feeling super soft after I massage a couple of pumps onto my face and it has definitely improved my skins texture over time.
Next is the Make-Up Forever #242 Blending Brush. I have been using this baby non-stop for the past month! It blends out my shadows beautifully and makes everything come together perfectly. It's a larger blending brush so the control is limited, but it's still a favorite for sure.
My last beauty favorite is the Fresh Sugar Balm. I use this balm every single day. I picked up my latest tube of this recently but I've used it before. It's so moisturizing and it smells amazing! It's a tad pricey, at $25, but the quality is incomparable and your lips stay soft for a long time!

Now onto my fashion favorites!

I didn't have too much to share for my fashion favorites because I've been trying to keep the shopping to a minimum.

Anyways, I've been loving rings (as usual). I always have on at LEAST 6. I wear the Lillot pearl ring every time I go somewhere fancy, or I just feel like being extra chic that day, haha. I am loving pearls at the moment and this ring looks amazing stacked with other rings, or just by itself. You can buy it on the Alekka website and I believe its $60. Another ring I've been loving is this Gorjana midi ring. I bought this on Shopbop and have been OBSESSED. I wear it stacked with other rings and it looks so chic.
I have also been loving my Topshop oversized chambray blouse. I wear it with everything. I wore it the other day with a pair of distressed denim shorts or I've worn it with a pair of white J Brands. The possibilities are endless, which is why I love this shirt. You can pair it with literally everything. It's perfect.
I've also been obsessed with my white shirt-dress from Zara. I wore it in a recent outfit post and it's been in my rotation non-stop. You can dress it either up or down, and I love the versatility of it. I've been wearing it a lot with strappy sandals. I also have worn it with heels and it looked equally as good.
My last fashion favorite are my Nastygal loafers. I bought these recently, but I've become OBSESSED. They are so fun and easy to wear. They look great with a dress, or with boyfriend jeans. I love the snakeskin texture and print as well. They were on sale, and such a good pick-up. Loafers are so in at the moment and I'm happy I scooped these up when I did.
