May Favorites

This has been a long and fast month. It seems like so much has happened in such a short time. I cannot believe it's already June. How is the year half over? How is that possible? Wasn't Christmas, uhhhh yesterday????

It's very scary how time goes by and if this is growing up, I don't like it... at all.

I'm currently writing this sitting in bed, watching Harry Potter on MDW. Strep Throat is not fun, as I mentioned yesterday and I'm in so much pain, I can't even speak. SOS.

Trying to think of my favorites this month is a tad difficult. I feel like I discovered a lot of new products but nothing that I'm obsessing over. That's a change for me... not obsessing over things.

I have been loving some trends, that I want to talk about in a different, more in depth blog post. I've been addicted to cream beauty products. Cream foundations, cream blushes, bronzers, and highlights. ALL THE CREAMS, PLEASE! It could be a cream or a liquid, just not powder. I think cream is amazing for summer and I can't wait to share my favorites -- I'm still testing some products out!

As for my other favorites...



-InvisiBobble Traceless Hair Ring: I've been obsessed with my hair lately. I just want it to look good, clean, and healthy. I'm getting a keratin treatment this week so I've been trying to maintain my hair however I can. These hair ties I found at Sephora are everything. They look like a slinky, in a way, and at first glance you think "Those are NOT going to fit in my head" but then you receive them and they're super stretchy and keep your hair in place. My hair is super thick, curly, and unruly and these are the best hair ties I've ever used. The best part? They don't leave a dent in your hair after using. That is my biggest feat when it comes to hair ties -- they always leave a mark. Since using these I haven't had any trouble and my hair has never looked better (so my co-workers say!)



-Rebecca Minkoff Avery Tote: I talked about this bag a few weeks ago. I scored it in the Rebecca Minkoff Sample Sale and I have not stopped using it. It's the perfect year round color (a stone griege if you will) and it's the perfect size for everyday use. It's not too big, or too small. It fits just right. It comes with a long strap to wear as a cross-body or on the shoulder but I'm not a fan of that. I like just carrying it on  my arm. I can't find this bag anywhere but here is a similar style.

-Alterna Scalp Facial: I've suffered from dry scalp since I was around 12 years old. I've tried everything in the books and while things have worked in the past, my head usually starts to reject it after a few weeks. It really was getting to me this month so I did some research and found this little gem. It's pricey but my goodness, it's incredible. It's a pre shampoo treatment that you massage into your scalp to get the product buildup and dry flakes off your head. I wet my head, start scrubbing, and start to feel the particles leave your head. It's REALLY GROSS and REALLY WEIRD but I am addicted and will never be without it ever again. It does make my hair look and feel cleaner, while also keeping my dry scalp at bay one or two days longer than without it. I've only used this three times but I'm excited to see how it keeps up.

-DryBar: On the subject of hair... I'm having a love affair, a love affair with The DryBar. You can read about my experience here but not only am I obsessed with the salon, but the products are incredible. They have been helping keep my hair shiny, gorgeous and clean. Take a look below at what I've been loving!


What are your favorites this month?
