July Favorites

Oh hiya!!

Another month of summer down and one more to go. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I don’t want it to get cold outside! I’m not ready! I have so much more to do, so many creeks to float and sea-salt hair sprays to try! Where HAS the time gone?

After a certain point – one would think I’d run out of monthly faves BUT I HAVEN’T so yeeeeehaw!


1. Shimmer Lights Shampoo


This one’s a doozy. And quite the throwback, I might add. The smell alone will indicate it’s origins from probably the 1950’s. It smells straight-up OLD LADY but it performs like a champ. It is crazy purple and is a God’s send for bright blondes. The purple cancels out and tones any brassiness and brightens my blonde hues. It is however, very drying, so you gotta be careful with how long it stays on.

2. Big Sexy Get Layered Hairspray


I got this stuff in my 2014 Allure Summer Beauty Box (which I MUST do a post on, btw) and I am in love. It is BY FAR the best hairspray I have tried for teasing, building volume and holding curl. The product comes out in a SUPER FINE mist and the formula is incredibly quick-drying. I may be a convert to this stuff from my long-time fave Tressemme Tres 2.


1. It Cosmetics Celebration Illumination Foundation


This powder just miiiiight have changed my life. Bold, I know. When I combine this with my Napoleon Perdis Boudior Mist Foundation it’s like PERFECTION. Doll skin, I tell you! For everyday, I buff this over my t-zone after applying foundation. I also take the ELF small concealer brush and dust a good amount under my eyes, over the top of my holy grail under eye concealer Bye Bye Undereye by It Cosmetics. So far this line has really impressed me, the CC cream is great, and these two products are amazing as well. Go get you some!

2. Bare Minerals Lasting Line Eyeliner


This pencil eyeliner was the only one I brought to Bali with me and it performed wonderfully. The color is decently pigmented and it glides on like a dream. I found the staying power to be pretty good even in the humid Bali heat!


1. Dawn Hand Renewal + Olay Peaches and Almond Dish Soap


I know. I’m writing about gd DISH SOAP. But this stuff is different. Because it has the Oil of Olay ingredient, it truly makes my hands feel so much more moisturized than just regular dish soap. And the smell? OMGeeee it actually makes me WANT to do dishes. Well, not really but kindof.

2. Outshine Popsicles


Popsicle consumption has been relentless in this house. I’m averaging just under a box every three days and lemmetellya – I can’t stop. These ones by Dreyers have been my absolute favorite. Esp the texture, I’m a texture girl.

3. Chasing Life on ABC Family


NOBODY LAUGH. I love this show and it’s exactly what you’d expect. Girl has cancer. Keeps it a secret from her family. Sexual tension. Overbearing mother. Bisexual sister. You get it. One of the characters is Cappie from another former favorite ABC Family show, Greek! Ah, love him.

K that’s all folks. Off to watch Dance Moms.

    I LOVE Chasing Life! So cute and ABC Family-ish.
    I stayed with my friend for a week and she is a blonde she uses the shimmer lights too! For me not so good since my hair us black haha. The purple TOTALLY freaked me out the first time I used it- caught me by surprise.
