I’m a little late to the party on this one, but hey, better late than never, right?! Here’s what I’ve been loving for the months of May, June, and July!
1. Alex and Ani “Zest for Life” Charm Bangle
I’ve blogged about my love of Alex and Ani bracelets before, and this newly released, limited-edition version is no exception. Each Alex and Ani bracelet has a special meaning, and this particular one, called “Zest for Life“, is a “reminder that when life hands you lemons, you have the power to take positive action, sweeten the situation, and make lemonade.The power to create a desirable outcome is always within reach.” (Alexandani.com) Not only is the meaning super-positive, for each purchase of this bracelet, Alex and Ani will donate 20% of the purchase price to a charity benefiting childhood cancer patients and help fund pediatric cancer research. I love that this bracelet stands for positivity and helps others, and so it was well worth the drive to the USA to pick one up. Check out more about this bracelet, and where you can purchase Alex and Ani products here.
2. Too Faced Shadow Insurance Champagne Eye Shadow Primer
I love a product that multitasks. Not only is this primer the perfect base for both shimmery and matte shadows, helping to bring out their pigmentation and last all day long, it’s also a gorgeous product to wear on it’s own (for those lazy mornings we all have now and again…or every day). This product is crease-proof, waterproof, and lasts all day.
3. Mark’s Work Warehouse Denver Hayes Romper in “Black”
I recently posted about my love of this romper on Instagram, and how I’d been searching for one with longer-length shorts for what seems like the entire Summer. I want to be able to do normal human things (walk, bend over, sit down) without having to worry about showing off too much (if you know what I mean). I wanted a romper that was classy, comfy, and fashionable, and this one from Mark’s Work Warehouse has it all. Oh yeah, and did I mention it’s currently on clearance for only $14.88!?
4. Urban Decay Naked Smoky
The Urban Decay Naked palettes never need much of an introduction (I’ve blogged about previous palettes here, here, and here). As someone who lives for a good smoky eye, this newly released “Smoky” version is close to my heart. With 12 gorgeous neutral, smoky toned shadows, not to mention the beautiful packaging, this palette is an essential for any makeup lover’s collection. It even comes with a dual ended brush, and a lookbook to help you create 4 (of endless) looks using the palette.
5. Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleansing Wipes-Pink Grapefruit
I’ve always tended to prefer face wash over wipes, however after receiving these as a gift, I decided to give them a try. Needless to say (as they are in my favourites after all), I fell in love. Not only do I use these to remove makeup, I also like to use them mid-day (especially on weekends when I don’t typically wear makeup) to remove oil and freshen up. I love the fresh, grapefruit scent, and that they leave your skin feeling smooth and clean (no greasy residue).
