Well, well, well. Look who decided to show up. It's me - and my monthly favorites - kind of! It's a mix of my favorites from last month and what I've been loving so far this month.

PS. I kind of disappeared last week. On Wednesday, my childhood dog (and my right-hand pup), Scarlett, unexpectedly passed away and it hit me really hard. It was so unexpected and honestly, it's been really tough, not having her here, explaining it to the boys - just all of it. Ugh. Time heals all, right?

On a happier note, I know, it's been awhile since I've done a favorites post but that's all the more reason to do it, am I right?


When I say I've had my eyes on these booties for months, I literally mean months but my local Target never had my size and to be honest, me + high heels = a baby giraffe walking for the first time. It's a sight y'all. So I can't wear anything too high. 

My parents gifted me a Target gift card for Mother's Day and I finally bit the bullet and bought them online and I'm so happy I did! I love the taupe color - they go with practically everything. For the most part, they're pretty comfy! I'm not sure I could wear these all day but I could for at least a few hours (which for me is a win).


I think I've mentioned this before but since testing positive for the BRCA2 gene, I've been on the hunt for more natural products that I use on the daily. That's right, deodorant, I'm looking at you. I am straight up a somewhat heavy sweater, guys and I needed a deodorant that could combat that but without aluminum in it.

After trying a bunch of natural deodorants that either broke me out or made me stink to high heaven, I found this little baby at my local Target (because I mean, where else?). It's my absolute fave. No breakouts, no armpit darkening and no stink! This deodorant has been tested against co-sleeping with an equally sweaty toddler, long walks and making intense decisions and passed with flying colors!


USA Graphic Baseball Hat ($2.97 - BUY)
Honestly, I've just been diggin' baseball hats in general but I recently scooped up this Old Navy one for $5 last week (now it's on sale for less than $3!) and I'm thinkin' it's going to be awesome for boat rides, 4th of July, country concerts and basically any day I don't feel like doing my hair and want to look patriotic AF.

It's so soft and has an adjustable band in the back that I admittedly had no clue how to adjust until I realized you pulled out the little band from the pocket. It's fine. I'm fine. 


Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner ($44 - BUY)
I have a few products from FRESH Beauty that I absolutely love but I've actually never tried their toner before. I actually won it a few weeks ago and haven't stopped using it since! If the pretty rose petals in the bottle doesn't keep you from opening it, the refreshing and tight feeling the toner gives you after using it will.

While I don't have sensitive skin, I have read reviews that this really irritates it and is not recommended for those with it. Just a note. Again, it doesn't bother my skin at all but, with all products, what may work for me won't work for everyone.


Did you really think I wasn't going to include this? Clearly, it's my holy grail foundation of like, all time. Don't worry. It's almost gone and unfortunately (fortunately?) I've already ordered two different foundations to try out in it's place. Shh, don't worry, Pro Glow, I'll come back for you. Ahem. Anyway, this is just one of those foundations that just works really well for me. I prime my face with a facial oil and then apply this once it's soaked in and the result is pure #nofilter magic, y'all.


I headed over to the site to figure out the new name of this concealer (old shades have been renamed) and was so happy to see how many different shades of concealer there are now! Yeah, I've clearly been living in a cave. I love this filter because a little goes such a long way. Unfortunately, it does oxidize a smidge but it's not horrible and still tops the list as one of my fave concealers of all time.

Here's a few looks I've done with this concealer:


I feel like this blush is throwback status because I've used it for YEARS yet it still makes it's way into my makeup routine rotation every few months. It's the most perfect flushed pink and is finely milled and talc-free.


Writing this reminds me that I totally need to buy a new one! I originally grabbed this because I read it was a Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara dupe and haven't put it down since. It has a slightly drier consistency which is my FAVE. I hate wet, heavy consistencies. This is the only mascara yet that has lifted my lashes and added volume all day and night. I'm a huge fan of this!


I mean, what's more to say about this palette? It's, hands down, one of my favorite palettes from ColourPop. Shayla completed killed the color selection and the shadows are beautifully pigmented. I love that you can have fun with neutrals or play around with colors and easily take a look from day to night. I did a complete review here, if you want to check it out!

Phew! So that's what I've been loving lately. I'm looking back at the beauty products and seeing that I totally lied and there's barely any new stuff. Don't hate me! I clearly have been on a different planet lately. Also, let me know if you like this format for favorites - or really for just showing any products. Is it easier to follow or more appealing to the eye or is too messy? Let me know!
