Monthly Muse: June 2019 Favorites

No comments
How is it July 2019 already? I feel like New Years was yesterday. It's such a weird feeling when time goes by really fast. Once July hits I feel like summer is over but this year, I feel like it's just getting started. There's still a lot of fun stuff to come -- baby birthdays, bridal showers, and engagement parties! There is so much to celebrate and I'm really excited.

I usually ramble on so hard during these monthly muse posts but I feel like I don't have too much to say so let's get straight into everything I was truly in love with this month. *I also don't have too many favorites, just a select few that I was obsessed with!



Slip Silk Eye Mask

I've been toying with the idea of buying one of the original silk eye masks from Slip. I love their hair scrunchies but $50 for an eye mask? It seemed like a lot but then I figured if I'm constantly buying cheap $15-20 eye masks then I mind as well invest in a good one. Plus, I was looking to purchase from Anthropologie and they have after Afterpay. I decided to go with the Hollywood Hills Palm Tree print because I'm super into palms because of summer and The Morning Toast. When I first touched the mask I don't think I ever experienced something so luxurious. The Slip Silk Eye Mask is so comfortable, so soft, and puts me right to sleep. I haven't used any other eye mask all month long because nothing feels quite right anymore. It covers my eyes perfectly, doesn't feel scratchy and really helps me fall asleep like nothing else ever has. If you love a sleeping eye mask and haven't tried Silk, you need to. It's the only eye mask I will use/purchase from now on.

Melys Illustrations Planner

When I got a new job back in April (that didn't work out if you haven't gotten the hint by all my weird, cryptic messaging) I wanted a new planner to keep at the office. I had been curious about the Melys Illustrations planners and this happened to be on massive sale since we were almost halfway through the year. I liked it for work and when I wasn't there anymore, I didn't know how to use it. That is until I stopped using my Erin Condren and figured I'd make do with this as an 'at home' planner. All I have to say is WOW. Having a huge planner like this with tons of space to write is life changing. I've never had a planner this big and now I don't think I can ever really go back. The paper is thick and perfect for writing, there is so much room to write without being overbearing, and I love the simplicity of it. There's nothing crazy going on aside from some cute illustrations at the beginning of every month and then some strewn across the pages. If you can't get your hands on this one whether it's now or at the start of 2020, I highly recommend a big planner if you love to write! 

Lancome x Chiara Ferragini Independent Woman

I have never followed Chiara Ferragini but have always been intrigued by her brand but mostly her eyelash logo. I knew she was coming out with a Lancome collection and when I saw it pop up on my Nordstrom app I took a look through all the items. When I saw the lipstick, I immediately purchased the shade "Independent Woman." I had heard great reviews about the L'Absolu Mademoiselle Shine Balm Lipstick so it was a no brainer purchase. The shade I chose is a classic mauve nude, a 'your lips but better' and I was so hyped to try it out. Well, I had no clue that I was going to fall in love and be obsessed. The formula melts into your lips, adds the most beautiful mixture of shine and color without being too glossy; it isn't sticky or hard to apply even though the formula is super soft. It is a cross between sheer and regular lipstick and can be applied without a mirror. It goes with EVERYTHING and has become my go-to purse lipstick. I cannot say enough good things about this color and formula!! The color is sold out on Nordstrom's website but the shade Flirty looks similar. If you can't get the Ferragini version, I recommend the formula in and of itself.


What did you love this month?
