Monthly Muse: May 2019 Favorites

No comments
I can't believe June is this weekend and we're nearing the halfway mark of the year. We're closer to Fall 2019 than 2018 and that is just wild to me. The year is flying by but this past month has been one of the longest of my life.

I'm primarily working from home, after some tough career changes this month and it's pretty interesting. I can't say too much on here yet but I hope to be able to fully explain soon -- I know I keep saying that so I apologize for the vaguness.

I've mentioned a few times that I have gotten really back into beauty the past month or so and it continued well into this month. I am so excited about all things beauty related and it's so nice to love something again that I took a mild break from before.

May was also the month when I started up my newsletter again and actually found a clear vision for it. The newsletter won't be content you see on the blog but mostly touching on topics that are a little more philsophical. I will definitely be sharing

During the past month I've tried a few differnet new things but also rediscovered some old little luxuries that I simply adore. I shared my current favorite beauty products last week so those are definitely my favorites but these are a few other random things that really caught my eye this month.


Pilot Pens

I've used these pens in the past but it wasn't until reading The Skinny Confidential that I knew I needed to pick up a pack again. I came across an Amazon giftcard recently and these ended up in my cart. I have not stopped using them and they are truly the greatest, smoothest, easiest pens to write with. Go get some!

Select CBD Pen

I've been wanting to try a CBD pen ever since I started using CBD oil and knew I eventually needed to bite the bullet. I purchased one from Select CBD in the Lavendar scent to puff right before bed and it's so nice. I like not having to ingest something and be able to use it orally. I usually take about 2-3 puffs before sleep and it helps me relax and get a good night's sleep. However, I do have really vivid dreams when I use this (but honestly it happens with all CBD products for me so something to be aware of)

Diptyque Candles

I love candles so much and I've gotten into the habit of burning them year round. I have a few small Diptyque candles on my desk (and a few spares still in boxes) that I never really burn. I like to have them as decor but also to burn on 'special occassions', whatever that means. Since I've been at my desk so much I decided to actually use the candles I have so I've went through about two of them this month and I forgot how much I love them. They smell incredible, look beautiful, and burn great -- super even and slow. If you love candles but haven't tried Diptyque yet, you need to buy one.

Rohto Ice Eye Drops

This is a strange 'favorite' but it has been one of my most used items this month. My allergies have been really aggressive and agggravating lately; I've gone through two boxes of tissues, a box of allergy medicine and I've begun to put my jade roller in the freezer to use at least three times a day to depuff and cool my eyes/face. These eye drops are insanely good! I really love cooling eye drops that sort of numb your eyes (it sounds very weird but trust me, it's good) and cool your eyes. They clear the redness and stop the itching immediately. If you suffer from really bad allergies, these are the best drops to get and trust me, I've tried them all.

Maison Replica Under the Lemon Trees

I mentioned the Jason Wu fragrance in my beauty favorites post but I have to mention this one which I've been wearing even more. I loved using the "By The Fireplace" fragrance in the winter and really wanted a super summery fragrance for the summer. When I saw the "Under the Lemon Trees" on the New Arrivals page on Sephora, I knew it was the one for me. I have been obsessed with all things lemon lately so I knew no matter what, I would like this fragrance. It smells like a delicious, fresh lemon cookie and is ideal for all summer occassions.

What were your favorites this month?
