June favourites!

June 29, 2013

We are done with another month which means monthly favourites! And its now officially summer and soon the month of July also known as my birthday month, i'm turning 17 which is pretty crazy!

How awful is that drawing of a sneaker haha! Anyways lets get into my favourites for this month!

Essie "Penny talk"
I've had this colour since December and didn't really like it at first because I don't really like metallic polishes. But this colour looks so good on your nails, almost like a really new penny when it almost looks like rose gold... It's perfect!

I actually ate all of these so I hope you don't mind a blurry stock photo! These clif bars are peeeerfect, if you love crunchy granola bars and white chocolate macadamia nut cookies I think that you will love these! I would bring these to school and usually eat them after lunch and the heat would melt the chocolate and it made them so much better! This particular kind is actually pretty hard for me to find so when I see them in store I stock the hell up.

Ive been drinking this tea for more than a year now but very recently I have fallen in love again. My Tazo calm tea has been what I drink before bed for a while now but I have kind of gotten sick of it so I went back to my Sleepytime Vanilla by Celestial. Its perfect because I don't like to add too much honey in my tea before bed and this tea is sweet enough that you need barely any!

Starlooks "Tipsy"
If you have seen my June Ipsy Bag blog post this should be familiar to you. I was excited about this lip liner and I still am! It glides on so smoothly and the colour pay off is fantabulous (first word that popped into my head so we're going to keep it haha)

I'm sure you all have heard of this before, I've been using it for as long as I can remember and it hasn't failed me yet! I am very fair and all of June there hasn't been enough sun to go out and tan so this is perfect for me! The only this about this one I have right now is that it says it is odourless and that is a lie! I apply mine at night so when I put it on it has a smell but it is subtle and pleasant, and when I wake up in the morning all I can smell is tanning lotion!

Eyeshadows with green box around it are the colours I am talking about
Next thing is an eyeshadow look using the Naked pallet and my NYX pallet that is so old I doubt they even sell it anymore. I put Urban Decay's Virgin (shimmery white colour) all over my lid, then I will mix together Naked and Buck to create a crease colour. To finish off the look I will go into my NYX pallet with a dense crease brush and the dark brown to deepen up the outer V!

Top shade: Urban Decay "Virgin"
Middle shade: Urban Decay "Buck" & "Naked" mixed together
Bottom shade: NYX (No name sorry)

Coconut oil, what? Well I am trying to grow my hair long (talked about here), which means no cutting at all and this leaves my hair a tad bit dry at the ends... So every Saturday I give my hair a treat by doing a coconut oil hair mask. Today I tried a mask using coconut oil, avocado, and honey and I think it turned out pretty well! I am planning on making a blog post about how I use coconut oil, but I want to try out a few more hair masks first to make sure I find something that I really like! Also wanted to say that I tried two ingredient pancakes today (banana and egg) and cooked them with coconut oil, I felt pretty good about not using butter :)

No surprise here, I've worn these babies at least 3 times a week every week since I got them and i'm not ashamed!

I heard how good this liquid liner was so when I needed a new one I opted for this. At first I hated it, the line was so messy and barely any product was coming out. Until a week later I realized I had to shake it before every use....... Now that I know how to use it I think it is a good eyeliner!

My last favourite of the month is a youtuber/blogger also known as blogilates! I was suggested to watch her videos by a few people and I'm so glad they did! Her workouts are amazing, and I really like her cheap clean eats. I'm hoping to try out the crepes tomorrow! As of July 1st I'm going to start following the calenders she makes every month and i'm thinking that I can really stick to it! (But if not I will go back to my normal routine of going on the treadmill then doing one or two of her videos)

There was my favourites for this month, I will be seeing you next month :)

  1. I love these kinds of posts! And your photographs are lovely! I'm also trying to use coconut oil, but instead, as a makeup remover. I'm still trying to figure out the best ways to use it though.
