May Favourites

IMG_2423.jpeg

Hello everyone!

It's the end of May, which means that it's time for a monthly favourites wrap-up. I do love me a good favourites post, as it's so much fun to chat about what I've been loving this month and sharing it all with you guys! There's been a few things that I've really enjoyed lately, mostly music as this month was great for new music releases, but I've also got a couple beauty-related items in there for good measure! 

Without further ado, let's get right to business. 

TRESemmé Repair + Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray [x] - I purchased this bad boy at my local drugstore at the beginning of the month on sale for like 2 bucks. What a deal, considering this product is actually pretty awesome! I love it because a) it's a heat protectant for when I use heat tools on my hair which is a must, and b) it makes my hair feel great afterwards! I'm seriously loving it. 

Choetech Qi Certified T511 Wireless Charger Pad [x] - I've always wanted one of these wireless chargers, ever since I bought the iPhone 8+ last year, but I always assumed they were all super expensive. That is, until my bf bought an 8+ earlier this month and found this charger on Amazon. It's so cool!! All you've got to do is plug the usb into the pad and into a charger brick, then place your iPhone on it. It works with any iPhone 8/8+/X with a small case. And it was only $20!! 

E.l.f. Cosmetics "Everyday Smoky" Palette [x] - Last month, I mentioned that I'd been loving the e.l.f. Cosmetics "Mad for Matte" palette, but this month I've found myself reaching more for the Everyday Smoky version. Although I haven't had a reason to go full-on smoky this month, I've been using the darker brown shades from this palette as well as the lighter shimmer shades to create everyday brown smoky looks, and I just love how it's been turning out! This palette is so easy to use and the shadows are very blendable. 

Little House on the Prairie [x] - If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I’m sure you’ve probably noticed that I’m pretty obsessed with the tv show Little House on the Prairie. I was a huge fan when I was a kid and my mum recently gifted me the entire series on iTunes, so I’ve been watching it religiously over the past month. Watching it back is giving me major nostalgic feelings about my childhood and making me remember how I used to sit in my basement with my grandma watching it for hours on end. Obviously a lot of it is historically inaccurate and the show itself is pretty outdated, but it’s definitely a fun show to watch nonetheless!

John Mayer, “New Light” - New John mayer music... YESSSS. I so wasn’t expecting him to release new music this month and it was a very happy surprise to have this pop up onto Spotify. This song is very different from his usual stuff, more disco-y honestly, but I’m definitely into it. Also, do yourself a favour and check out his music video for this song. You won’t be disappointed. 

Florence + the Machine, “Hunger” - I’ve been into Florence + the Machine since I was in high school and every time she releases a new song, I’m never disappointed. Hunger is such a powerful and amazing song, especially with Florence Welsh’s voice. I love turning this up whilst I’m driving around town!!  

Shawn Mendes’s new album - In case you hadn’t heard, Shawn Mendes recently dropped his third studio album this month on the 25th. And - as expected - it’s pure gold. I love his new mature sound and think that he really outdid himself on this album. It’s incredible to think that a boy from Pickering who just played guitar on Vine could come so far! Some of my fav songs off this album are “Nervous”, “Lost in Japan”, “Where Were You in the Morning?” and “Fallin’ All In You”. 

Well, that’s all for May! What have you guys been loving this past month?

January Favourites

img_1188.jpg

It's the end of January which means another monthly favourites post!!! I love writing these sorts of posts. I think it would be lovely if my favourites posts could introduce any of you to a new product or music or tv show or whatever. That'd be wonderful :) Well, anyway, here we go with my January favs!!

TOO FACED PEACH BLUR TRANSLUCENT SMOOTHING FINISHING POWDER

I really have been loving the Peach Blur lately. Different from a setting powder - which obvs sets your makeup - finishing powder smooths out your makeup to make it look more evened out. I usually use it when I'm going for a no-makeup makeup look as it makes my skin look fresh and bright.

NOT YOUR MOTHER'S SMOOTH MOVES FRIZZ CONTROL

This one was crucial for me when I was in Florida at the beginning of the month. Honestly, it was a lifesaver. I just squeeze a toonie-sized amount into my palm and work it into my hair when it's wet. It does wonders for frizziness. I find that my hair dries more evenly, and it's much easier to just blow-dry it and go.

NIVEA NOURISHING DAY CREAM

I have recently switched to my winter skincare routine, and with that comes the need for a different moisturizer. Previously, I was using the Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer. It was doing exactly what I wanted it to. But, the salicylic acid in the moisturizer mixed with the cold air was drying out my skin, so I thought I'd go with something a bit more heavy duty. This day cream has so far been really doing the trick!

TARTE LIMITED-EDITION BLUSH BAZAAR PALETTE

This was actually a Christmas gift from my parents. In the past month, I've been getting a lot of use out of it and I really like it. As it has 10 different shades - some dark, some light, some shimmery, some matte. I love the selection and how simple the blushes are to apply. It's the perfect thing to bring on holiday, as it's easily transportable and it gives me a lot of options. I love 'Angelic' and 'Authentic' the most.

INDIGO MAGNETIC BOOKMARKS

Up until very recently, I have been using the receipt of my book purchase as the bookmark for whatever book I'm reading. So, when I went out to buy the books from my January reading list, my mum insisted that I finally bought myself a bookmark. I ended up finding a pack of magnetic bookmarks with really cute designs and sayings on them. They're really cool - you just clamp the magnetic around the page that you're currently reading and it sticks there without leaving a dent or falling out at all. I'm a huge fan so far and would definitely recommend picking these up if you're an on-the-go reader like I am!

That's a wrap on January! What have you guys been loving this month?
