Guys! June is here which means that Summer is officially within reach! I am beyond ready for all of the sundresses, beach days, and of course, ice cream season. Looking back at May, there were a lot of products to love and I wanted to round them all up. Let’s get into it!
Hydrapeak 40oz Tumbler. When it comes to drinking water, I’ve always been a sucker for a tumbler with a straw. My Starbucks cup and I went way back, my timestamped water bottle had a good run, but this one – this may be my fave! I never hopped on the Stanley train because I heard these were better; slimmer, sleeker, spill proof, and a fraction of the price! I found mine at TJ Maxx – I’ve also seen them at Marshalls and on Amazon. I absolutely love this cup, your water will stay cold ALL DAY, it’s easy to carry around, fits into every cupholder I’ve come across, and it has been so helpful for staying on track with my water intake.
It Happened One Summer, Tessa Bailey. I really wanted to read something light and fun last month and this book came highly recommended by so many! I absolutely loved it, I haven’t read anything like this in a while. A high maintenance LA girl meets handsome and rugged small town guy. A spicy romance brews between these two endearing characters and you can’t help but falling in love with both of them individually …and as a couple. There is a sequel Hook, Line, and Sinker that I just picked up and cannot wait to dive into!
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Face Cream. I ran out of moisturizer back in March/April and I wanted to find something gentle and fragrance free – insert this Aveeno cream. I’ve really been enjoying how it applies, feels, and wears under my makeup. It’s gentle on the face, perfectly hydrating, has a fabulous price point, and fairly clean ingredients. No complaints from me!
bareMinerals BarePro 16-Hour Skin Perfecting Powder Foundation. This wasn’t new to me in May, but it has definitely become a staple in my beauty routine and deserved a spot in my faves. I’m loving it so much, I dedicated an entire blog post to it last week! This powder is everything. I apply my Aveeno lotion, spot treat my face with concealer, and then apply this BarePro all over. It melts beautifully into the skin and wears so dewy and natural – it’s not dry or cakey like many powders can be. I cracked my compact last month and was so devastated I had to figure out how to repair it – surprisingly, it was very easy to do. Catch that video here!
bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lipstick in “Swag”. So there’s a fun story about this! I’ve been using this liquid lipstick for years! I think I first tried it in 2017 and it has remained a go-to shade for me. Unfortunately, I’ve had trouble finding it in stores and online recently. When my bareMinerals BarePro powder cracked, BM reached out offering to send me a new one – along with any other products. I shot my shot and asked if they had this lipstick in stock. To my surprise, they did!! I’ve been savoring this tube ever since it arrived in early May.
Mango Melona Creamy Fruit Bars. Ever since Dan picked these popsicles up at Costco, I’ve had one almost every single night! He grabbed the Mango, Coconut, and Honeydew flavors and Mango is hands down my favorite. They’re so tasty and so substantial! Think of it like a froyo bar; much richer than your traditional ice pop. I’ve been meaning to try it with some tajin sprinkled on top! I’ve been loving all things fruity lately and these were definitely a May favorite.
Nude Sandals. I actually got these last year and if you caught my recent WIWTW post, you can clearly see that they get a lot of use! I’ve always preferred nude sandals because they go with everything – which makes getting dressed super easy. I picked this pair up at Marshalls or TJ Maxx(?) but there are a few nearly identical pairs online (here and here). If you don’t have a nude flip flop, I’d highly recommend! ◡̈
Clothing Rack. I bought this rack a few years ago (linking a very similar one) and it has basically been collecting dust in our basement. I’ve recently been in a style rut (see WIWTW revival) so when I turned my closet over for Spring/Summer, I realized I needed a new system. I wanted to see some of my clothes. I wanted to display my cute sundresses and tops so that I could be more creative when getting dressed. So far, it has worked wonders! Who knew how much a small clothing rack could change your life?
OPI NailEnvy in Bubble Bath. I always like to include my favorite mani of the month and while I wore a few fun colors in May, this polish cannot go unnoticed. OPI took two of their most popular products – Nail Envy and Bubble Bath and combined them! This strengthening polish is going to be a go-to for me for many years to come. They also have these combo polishes available in a handful of other shades!
That’s it for May! I’m hoping to continue my favorites posts through the Summer because I have a feeling there’s going to be lots more to love. Did you have any favorite products, foods, clothes, etc. last month?
Let me know below! XOXO
