June Favorites!

It's finally summer time! My favorite time of the year. Well, minus fall. I freakin' love fall. But summer -  summer is where it's at. Summer means country concerts, camping trips, tan lines, iced coffees and flip flops. Let's dive in and check out what I loved last month!

Favorite Jewelry: 
I bought this necklace from Forever21 right before I left for Louisiana last month and OMG! I received so many compliments. I call this my Cleopatra-esque bib necklace. It's kind of heavy too but I don't care. This really is the perfect bold necklace to go with a cute simple dress. ($12 - Forever 21)

Favorite Beauty/Hair Products:
Vaseline Total Moisture - A few weeks ago, I got a pretty bad sunburn on my shoulders and was really worried it would peel. I put a thin layer of this baby on my shoulders for a few days and am proud to say no peeling! Yahoo! I really love this because it doesn't feel greasy or thick. I hate that. It smells pretty good too! (prices vary - Walmart, any drugstore)

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

By far, my most favorite "naked" palette EVER! I love the whole beach goddess bronze-y natural look and this palette has that and more! My every day favorites for summer are Bootycall in the inner corner of your eye, Half Baked on the lid and Busted on the lower lash line. ($50 - Sephora, Ulta, 

e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

As you can see, I love the heck out of this stuff. This is my go-to bronzer! As a pretty pale girl, I have a hard time finding a bronzer that doesn't make me look orange-y and fake. This bronzer is not only very natural looking but also has some subtle shimmer in it. ($3 - Target stores or e.l.f.)

Maybelline Dream Bouncy in Hot Tamale

Hot Tamale is a  hot coral-y pink cream blush. I love these Dream Bouncy blushes because they're bouncy! No, seriously. They're this awesome sponge-y feeling that actually holds that shape after use. These are perfect for summer - they're lightweight and it definitely doesn't feel like it's caked on. ($7.99 - any drugstores)

Favorite Hair Product:
So I saw Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray (that's a mouthful!) on one of my fave beauty vlogger MacBarbie07's June favorites video and had to buy it to try it out. I've been dying for that perfect sea salt spray to make my hair look like it does after a day at the beach without the sand in places it shouldn't be part. Wa-la! Found it! It smells like vanilla which was totally unexpected for some reason. I love that that you can put it on with wet, damp or even dry hair with equally amazing results.  With naturally wavy hair, I have a hard time finding products that define and texturize without frizzy the heck out of my hair. NYM is my lifesaver! ($6.00 - Walmart stores or NYM)

Favorite Nail Polishes:
Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum

Dollish Polish It's A Me, Mario!
Dollish Polish rocked my June and I didn't even realize it until now! We've got Expecto Patronum with it's gorgeous turquoise glitters in a cream base and It's A Me, Mario! in a clear base with red and blue glitters and silver stars! If you haven't bought from Dollish Polish yet A.) You're missing out! B.) What are you waiting for?! ($8.75 - Dollish Polish)

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy
This is one of my favorite summer polishes ever! It's bright and it's coral-y pink. From China Glaze's Summer 2010 Poolside Collection, it's become an ultimate summer polish classic! (price varies, any beauty stores)

Favorite Songs:
Pontoon - Little Big Town
Good Time - Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen
Kissed You (Good Night) - Gloriana

Favorite Websites:
- Brandy Melville - Can you be in love with a website? If you can, I am with this one. They have the cutest (and cheap!) clothes and jewelry. This site reminds me of Forever 21 a bit.
- Gypsy Warrior - Another clothing site I'm in love with and fuels me to find a farm that sells money trees.

Favorite Blogger:
Dulce Candy - Need another fashion blogger's closet to die over? I pick this one! Dulce (yes, that's her real name!) is also a YouTube vlogger, a mommy AND has her own online clothing store. From make-up tutorials to outfits of the day, this blog has everything a girl could ever drool over!

What were your June favorites? 


  1. First off, I think I remember seeing that it was your boyfriends' birthday on Facebook, so happy birthday to him!

    2nd: I need that Expecto Patronum polish ASAP! I also love Flip Flop Fantasy but I think I have that.

    That sea salt spray for your hair looks great.

    I love that song by Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City. I can't stop listening to that song and Call Me Maybe!

    1. Thank you, Amy! <3
      YES! If you don't have both, you need to get them! The sea salt spray is amazing and smells so good. AND the best part is you can find it at Walmart! Haha. I love me some Carly Rae Jepsen!
