Oh goodness guys,
Its been awhile.
I can’t even remember the last time I wrote a monthly favorites post. I want to try to get back into the swing of things as I love sharing things that I am loving in my life with you all!
The first thing I have been loving this month is a Youtuber- Zoe Sugg. Zoe, or “Zoella,” films beauty, makeup and lifestyle videos that showcase her everyday life and what she loves. Anytime I need a pick me up, I always turn to her channel to uplift my spirits. It’s nice to see someone else your age going through some of the same things as you with the normal bumps and rough patches we all go through. Recently, Zoe launched her own pamper evening collection of goodies- including this makeup bag. Of course, I couldn’t wait to support her in her adventure so I promtly placed an order:)
All month I have been obsessed with Lancome La Vie Est Belle. I have never owned a scent that so perfectly captures who I am as a person. Its classic, not too sweet but not too musky, mature but youthful, and utterly magical. Plus, the boy likes it too!
Fave Face Product:
I have recently been getting back into using highlighters and contouring my face a bit more than I normally do. Along with that comes a hunt for the perect shade of highlight for my skin tone- in comes Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade Opal. I adore this color for its blended gold, bronze, and opal tones. When applied lightly to the cheekbones, it gives the most subtle glow that draws attention to all the right places.
I love red lipstick. Throwing some red on my lips makes me feel instantly put together, classy and strong- all aspects I admire in women and love to embody in myself. This Maybelline matte lip color in the shade Siren in Scarlett is bold, bright and daring. It gives a little boost of confidence all for under $10.
I would like to discuss my obsession with candles. I looooove them. Like during the fall, I go absolutely mental and have so far purchased at least 6. Why? Because they’re so cozy! A simple candle can turn a room into a home, bringing warmth, character, and evoking emotion through scent. My favorite scents are slightly sweet, fall-like smells. And my favorite candle scent of all time is Pumpkin. This Yankee Candle in Pumpkin Spice is the end-all-be-all of pumpkin smells. I die.
Lastly, my hedgehogs. The cutest things ever?! Yes, I know. I found these little guys at Target and knew I couldn’t leave them behind. Each about $3, they are going to make my dining table so stinkin’ cute!
And that’s what I’ve been loving this month! What have you been loving?? I’d love to hear below, or you can let me know on Twitter, @xobrendykins!
