may 2015 favorites.

monthly favorites

{favorite beauty items}  

china glaze nail polish in below deck – it’s a purply-brown color, which sounds gross.  but it’s actually one of my favorite colors i’ve ever put on!

maybelline baby lips dr rescue lip balm in coral crave – it’s a great lip balm with just the right amount of tint.

{favorite books}

i didn’t do a ton of reading in may, but i am loving the invisible girls, eleanor and park, and rereading sense and sensibility. i picked up the marvel version this time.  it’s weird to get used to but i like it.  i’m about halfway through each of them.

{favorite new music, tv shows, movies}

grace and frankie – this netflix original is funny and heartwarming.  it follows two older women whose husbands left them for each other.  the women then band together to deal with the weird situation.  jane fonda and lily tomlin are wonderful.

texas rising – yeah, there are some inaccuracies in this history channel miniseries.  but as a texas, i’m proud of the stories and how they were told.

extreme weight loss – the powells are amazing.  i love their methods.  but what’s even better is when everyone involved admits their mistakes, their shortfalls, and their struggles.  i don’t have as much weight as the people on the show have to lose, but i can still relate to each of their stories.  (makes me cry every time!)

{i did not care for pitch perfect 2.  it just wasn’t that funny.}
