I’m excited to do another favorites, but I’m also shocked at myself because I have never done monthly favorites three months in a row! I usually go for the same kind of products for months but I’ve surprised myself because I’ve been changing it up a bit. Maybe that’s just one of the pros of having plenty of makeup and skincare to have on rotation.
Just want to mention a few shows I’ve been watching, all on Hulu.
I’ve been watching The O.C. since May, so technically this should have been in my May/June Favorites, but yeah. I have been enjoying it even though it is a bit predictable but I like the mixture of drama and a bit of comedy.
We also like watching Malcolm in the Middle when we want something light-hearted and hilarious. We just can’t get enough of it!
Then of course was the big hit, Stranger Things Season 3! Whoooaaaaaa! I fucking loved it and we binged-watch the shit out of that show that same weekend! I love the plot twists it has and I of course have my theories on what the next season will be about, so we can talk about it in the comments if you guys want.
And then I have been watching anime, Tokyo Ghoul and Naruto Shippuden, both on Hulu. TG I’m re-watching and I LOOOVE it, so dark! And Naruto is more light-hearted and sweet with a bit of action and what-not. My son really likes Naruto, it’s cute.
I am SHOCKED that I have this many shows, I usually stick to just one at a time, so yeah, lots of surprises this month LOL.
I got a few things that I wanted to share with you guys as well..
I like the DIY’s I recreated, and I got a few more to show you guys.. 🙂
I LOVE my pineapple themed Bujo for this month, and I know my BuJo has been part of my faves for a few months now, but that’s because it’s been very helpful to me. I have been able to plan out my workload, etc.
Also how cute are the pineapples?

I picked up The Great Gatsby from the library and have been enjoying reading it. It’s very similar to the movie so far, and I like the writing style and how descriptive it is. I’m not done with it yet, but so far I like it.
I also got this lovely Life in the Sloth Lane book that my wonderful husband gifted to me one day out of the blue and it took me by surprise, so yeah it was lovely.
It’s the cutest thing ever I think, it has a LOT of baby and adult sloth pictures with many positive quotes, and I like opening it and reading one or two quotes whenever I pick it up.
The Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask was a very nice treat to receive in my July Boxycharm. I liked it since the first time I tried it, and I really think it’s one I’ll be reaching for more often this summer. It just feels refreshing and it’s something I’ve never tried before.
The Farmacy Honeymoon Glow is a great serum! I think it has been a great product to have in rotation in my skincare routine, and I do use it two to three times a week. It has made my skin look a bit brighter, I think.
The Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen I found at Walmart while I was looking for a coral-reef safe sunscreen. I mainly got it for my kiddo but I’ve used it a few times and really like it for myself as well. I am thinking I may like sprays better but we’ll see..So far I like it and it’s nice, I like how the bottle turns blue when in harmful UV light.

Fourth Ray Beauty
I’ve mentioned I like these products before and I have been keeping my eye on their IG because they have been releasing other products I’m super interested in, but for now, these are working so well!
I absolutely love them! Their products are absolutely affordable and high quality! You guys need to look into this brand, no joke!
I got so many makeup products so I’ll try to go through them quickly..
ColourPop Brow Boss — it’s a good product, I can do my brows quickly because it has a thin tip, but I”m not sure this will replace my favorite one.. We’ll see..
Essence I Love Colour Intensifying Eyeshadow Base — really great for wet-based looks and it also enhances some shades.
e.l.f. Glitter Primer — it works really well! I don’t know if they sell it anymore, but it’s really really good!
Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer — feels very hydrating especially during hot days, and it almost feels like a moisturizer on the skin.
Wet n Wild Photofocus Concealer — I like it a bit better than the NYX one but I still don’t think it’s the one, however, it’s working for me right now, has great coverage and it sits really well on my skin.
Bare Minerals Original Powder Foundation — I love wearing this foundation during the summer because it just sits so nice on the skin, and since it’s powder, it’s perfect for the season.
theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer — My favorite highlighter! Looks stunning and it looks so natural on me. Perfect for strobing!!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm — My fave drugstore formula, hands down! Enough said!
Buxom Cosmetics Full-On Lip Polish in Celeste — My go-to for simple makeup days!

The color story is gorgeous, the packaging is gorgeous and the formula is bomb!

I shared with you guys my orange lipstick collection and I think it’s a great shade to wear during the summer, and I have been reaching for a few of these this season.

Sunburst Yellow Makeup Look
I was able to do this look again for my post here, and I feel like for that reason I became fond of this look and these colors. I wasn’t sure if yellow would look good on me and all of you were so nice and sweet to me that it does, so I appreciate all of you! ❤
