monthly favorites

{favorite beauty items}  

loreal true match lumi liquid glow skin illuminator in golden – this is advertised as a primer, but i like to just add it to my foundation or bb cream.

benefit hoola bronzer – i had thought about buying this bronzer for a long time.  it really is the perfect bronzer color and consistency.  it’s very pigmented so use a light hand!

hello perfume by harvey prince for birchbox – this scent is perfect for the spring and summer.  it’s light and fresh.

{favorite eats}

hello fresh subscription – the recipes are all so unique.  i enjoyed all of them!

this cheesecake.


{favorite reads}

in the summer, i like to read fluff.  it just feels right to keep it light.  (that rhymes!)  so i’ll give you a rundown of a couple of my favorites.  i recommend them, but just remember…pure fluff.

scoring wilder by r.s. grey

with a twist by staci hart

one more shot by victoria denault

{favorite new music, tv shows, movies}

true detective – i’m a little late to the party here, but this show was great!  i’ve only seen the first season of it.  it was scary and fascinating.  i think i want to watch it again because i feel like i missed some things.  when it was over, i had so many questions.  great show though.

the skelton twins – i was surprised that i liked this movie so much.  it came out last year.  it is a little dark, but has some very funny moments.

trainwreck – so so so good!  i had high expectations because i love amy schumer.  she exceeded my expectations.  it was sweet and sad and hilarious.  it was everything i want in a summer movie.

big love this is an older hbo series that i found on amazon prime.  it aired for five seasons.  i watched a couple of episodes every few days.  it started off kind of slow but the story just got better and better.
