Monthly Muse: June Favorites | 2018

No comments
June has come and gone and we're starting July -- meaning we're halfway through the summer! (not really, but you get my point). I saw on someone's Instagram story the other day that a store had Fall decor out.

As much as I love Fall, I'm not ready for it and by no means am counting down the days like I usually am. It's probably because we had such a cool start to June and the first week of July is the first time we're experiencing real heat this summer.

I loved a lot of things this month -- it was filled with a few wonderful purchases, some new makeup, and just lots of good things! 




Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm: When I saw that NARS was releasing a bunch of Orgasm products I knew that I had to have the Afterglow Lip Balm. The orgasm shade in a lip balm? With pretty pink metal packaging? Yes, please! I ordered it the moment it went on sale and have really worn nothing on my lips since. It has a barely there pink color, a little bit of a sheen and feels like virtually nothing on the lips. I'd compare it to the Dior Addict Lip Glow but I like this much better! I had a weird reaction to the Dior lip balm yet I still wear it but this is a nice alternative that doesn't irritate my lips.


Tory Burch Perry Tote: I have been using Neverfull MMs nonstop for work but I wanted to give them a break this month. I switched over to my beloved black Tory Burch Perry Tote and fell in love all over again. It is the best, squishiest leather around, holds a ton and is super comfortable on the shoulder. I think it's a great alternative to the expensive Neverfull so I highly recommend it as a carry-all bag, whether it's for work, school, travel or even every day. It looks like this particular model is discontinued from Tory but it's all over the resale market.

Kate Spade Necklaces: For the past few months (almost a year probably) I haven't been wearing necklaces. I just don't like the feeling of them on my neck and I've been getting irritated with them. Every time I would wear one I would end up taking it off and putting it in my bag. I never, ever wear necklaces during the summer because it's just an extra thing to give off heat. However, I've been wearing my two favorite Kate Spade necklaces lately and have been loving them! They're very delicate, and I don't even feel them on my neck.

Tory Burch Logo Cuff: Talk about loving a piece of jewelry! I have been lusting after this cuff for months, ever since I saw Katey from COF wear it in an Instagram post. I didn't want to spend the $128 on it so I bought it for less than half the price on eBay (eBay has been my SHIT and is an honorable mention favorite). I have been wearing this bracelet nonstop and I am OBSESSED! It's so comfortable, fits perfect on my small wrist because you can adjust it, and looks great with any outfit. I loved it so much I bought the matching ring on eBay as well. Nordstrom just released a silver cuff and I need it so badly!

Boscia Cactus Water Hydrating Cream: When I placed a Sephora order this month I got this gel moisturizer as my deluxe sample and holy crap when was the last time I fell in love with a sample? This is the best moisturizer for summer! I know a lot of people use lightweight gel moisturizers in the summer heat but with my dry skin, I always still use something a little thicker -- until now. It's so lightweight, super hydrating and sinks into the skin immediately. I haven't had an issue with this causing a bad reaction to my skin and my face looks fresh in the morning. I will 100% be purchasing the full size once I run out of this!

What were your favorites this month?
