Heyy dolls and happy Friday!!
This post got so delayed because of the festivities yesterday and then this morning I had to take Alex to see his primary care physician because his throat was hurting so much all week. I swear if I don’t make a call on his behalf, he just won’t go! LOL.
Anyway, I’ve been working on this post and video since I got back and I am about to go and get ready to leave. We may eat ramen or pho, we will see. But today I am showing you my June favorites, I haven’t done a favorite post since April and I’m so stoked that this time it landed on a Friday because of Friday Favorites so yay!
But I digress, let’s get started. Some of these products are honorable mentions because I’ve mentioned them before.
Let’s start with miscellaneous because I feel like people don’t care much about that but I want to mention it anyway.
Firstly, some music, I’ve mentioned before that I can’t stop listening to Passion Pit and Wallows, they’re both such amazing indie bands, and if you’re into indie music, I highly recommend you guys look into them, and if you don’t know what songs to look for first, I can give you some suggestions 😉
I also did a deep-dive on NoRome who is currently touring with The 1975 and his older music is just as amazing as his new album. I love it. I highly recommend “Pink” (newer song) and “I’m Here” (older song).
In terms of entertainment, I have been binged watching Jenna Marbles and her boyfriend Julien Solomita, as well as their JennaJulien Podcast. They’re both amazing human beings, so down-to-earth, so real, and they remind me a lot of Alex and I and how we get along. They’re just such great people and they’re super funny.
Now onto actual stuff I can show you:
Japan Crate from FYE
I was so stoked when we got this box full of snacks, candy, a beverage FROM JAPAN! You guys know I love Japan in general so to try something like this was super cool. I will have a post on the full box this month or next. I think my next box will be the ramen one!
This is my favorite bag/mini backpack that I found at Ross. I have been wanting one of these mini bags for a long time and I have also always wanted something from Betsey Johnson so when I found this I had to grab it right away! It’s such a cute theme, cat-unicorn and it fits all of my stuff.
I have been reading this book too, Astrophysics For People In A Hurry by Neil DeGrasse Tyson, and this is basically a recap for me because I took physics in college. The class was fun for me and I enjoyed learning everything about space, and this book is so well-written and easy to digest so if you’re remotely interested in the universe, I highly recommend this book.
Lastly, no surprise here, my June Bullet Journal.
The lavender theme was super gorgeous and I loved sketching it and inking it and adding some color. I loved that it was all monochromatic.
Now beauty stuff.. First up are these palettes, the Violet Voss HG PRO Eyeshadow palette and the ColourPop Sweet Talk palette. The VV palette appeared in my April Favorites, and I should have a lookbook and a palette review coming your way next week.
The CP palette I’ve already done a video for (a GRWM & Tutorial), and I also have a post for it. I will be playing with this palette for the rest of the month, so expect both a lookbook and a review at the end of the month.
And also, new new product, these false eyelashes from BH Cosmetics. I picked them up a while back but was saving them until I was ready, and I immediately LOVED them! They’re so lightweight, I can’t feel them, and they were so easy to put on. My only problem was the black eyelash glue it comes with, it almost ruined my makeup but I was able to fix it as if nothing ever happened. 🙂
My June BoxyLuxe is part of my favorite as well because I really loved everything I received, but most of all, I liked the PYT Mini Blow Dryer the most and I’ve been using it a lot as of lately and it works like a charm!
I am also loving my blue hair! If you guys missed it yesterday, I posted my Summer Hair REVEAL and of course I’m obsessed with my hair color now. Which is why I’m using the blow dryer so often, I can’t have wet hair because I will stain everything LOL.

Onto more makeup, I am loving two products from my May Boxycharm, the Alamar Cosmetics Colorette Blush Trio and the Dose of Colors Coral Crush Lipstick, both are amazing! I LOOOOVED them! Such high quality products!
I have also been reaching for the Wet n Wild Coloricon Blush in Apricot in the Middle almost on a daily basis. It’s my go-to for the summer. And the Essence Prettifying Lip Oil has been so good for my lips! Super hydrating and nourishing!

Now skincare, which are all honorable mentions because they were previous favorites and/or I’ve mentioned them on the blog or on videos before.
The e.l.f. Cosmetics skincare line is sooo good! I cannot stop recommending them because their skincare is good quality skincare for drugstore stuff. I will be doing a full “One Brand Focus” on their products at some point.
I also couldn’t pass up mentioning the Mario Badescu facial sprays, I love them so much as well, I use the Cucumber and Green Tea to refresh the skin throughout the day, the Sage and Orange Blossom in the morning to wake up and energize my skin after my workouts, and the Lavender and Chamomille one I use at night in my skincare routine.
The Fourth Ray Beauty Wide Awake Trio. I’ve done a post on my summer morning skincare with these products and they’re amazing.
And lastly, the Oh! K Illuminating Serum which I picked up from Ulta a few months back. I use it almost every night and I love how it absorbs quickly into the skin and it doesn’t feel tacky or weird. I will also be doing a “One Brand Focus” on this brand as well because I have a few other products I bought with this serum.
Anyway, that is everything. Everything I have been loving since my last favorites. I will do my best to not make these posts every single month, because products don’t change that often for me.
I’d love to know what you guys have been loving as well!
I hope you guys had an amazing fourth of July yesterday and I wish you all a very awesome, safe, happy and peaceful weekend! I will see you guys next week, the week will be FULL!! ❤ xx
