I can't believe May has come and gone already, but here we are! It's time for my favorites (beauty, food, clothing, and more!) of the past month. These favorites are all about summer, whether it's glowy skin, no-fuss makeup, easy recipes, and fab workouts! So let's get started!
First things first - beauty :)
Just purchased my oh-I-don't-know 5th tube of this loveliness. I buy it every summer and it's my go-to tinted moisturizer that provides just the right amount of coverage and glow to my skin. It's also got an SPF of 20! For days or nights when I want more coverage, I just add a little of this under my eyes or on any problems areas.
Speaking of a glowy complexion, this highlighter is my absolute favorite and I wear it all summer long. It's a beautiful golden-pinky color, and looks so pretty on the cheekbones or over your favorite blush. I also use it as an eyeshadow! This stuff lasts forever too - a little goes a long way!
I recently splurged on this lip gloss and I have been reaching for it every single day. It's a creamy pinky-nude color and looks great alone or over any lipstick. It has that subtle tingling and plumping effect, which I especially love. My favorite way to wear it is over my MAC "Hue" lipstick.
I have been wanting to try out the full size of this mask, but wasn't sure if I would like it. So when I found these mini pods for just $8, I immediately snatched them up. I love pampering myself a little bit on the weekend with an at-home mani/pedi, a long bath, and a face mask - it just makes me feel so refreshed and energized! These leave my skin feeling wonderfully clear and smooth. The label reads "Activated charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, white China clay absorbs environmental toxins, and lecithin dissolves impurities. Skin breathes a sigh of relief." Yes Please!
That weekend mani I was talking about above..... well, I've been reaching for this color for the past month, and it's becoming my new favorite. It's the perfect shade of lavender-blue, and looks great with a tan!
Wow, I'm on a roll with leading into each new product! This is my go-to tan lately, and it is so easy to use! You just spray over a clean face/body, rub in lightly, and...instant glow! AND it doesn't stink like all the other self-tanners! That's a win-win for me! Will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out of this one.
This has been my favorite body wash, and it's the perfect summer scent! Tropical and Coconutty, and absolutely delicious. Used with a loofah, it lathers up perfectly and makes my entire bathroom smell like a vacation. And it's on sale right now! (I just stocked up!)
Now onto my favorite shoes of the month. I got these for my birthday and I think I have worn them every day since! They are so comfortable, easy to wear, and go with everything! The nude color is perfect for summer, with shorts, dresses, jeans, whatever! I thought I would have to break them in, but they immediately molded to my feet! LOVE!
I've been on a roll with my morning workouts, lately. I usually take Andrew on a long walk in our BOB stroller, and as soon as he goes down for his morning nap, I do these 2 workout videos.
This arms one is fantastic! My arms are always burning, which is a good sign, and I swear they are looking more toned already! (AND it's only 10 minutes! Perfect for the busy girl-on-the-go!)
Love Tracy's workouts, and this Abs one is my favorite. It actually starts out with a little bit of legs, which I do as well, but it finishes with a simple but VERY effective Abs part. I am always feeling this the next day!
This bra is my must-have for all of these said workouts. It offers amazing support for these (new-mama) tatas. It's not the cheapest thing in the world, but it is so worth the money. Between this one, and this one , I am set! And I love the pink color... cute workout clothes make workouts much more fun, right? ;)
This has been my favorite snack/breakfast item lately! I LOVE the dried blueberries, and the granola is so yummy. For breakfast, I will put 1/2 cup of it in a bowl, top with 1/2 cup of Almond Milk, and then 1/2 of a sliced banana - sooooo yummy!!
And, last but not least, my "Mommy" favorite!
I actually have loved my Baby K'Tan for the past 4 months, but I've just recently been wearing and enjoying our Ergo Carrier! Andrew is finally big enough for it - and it provides lots of support and comfort for us both. I'll be flying alone (eek!) next month to Florida with the baby, and I know this will be coming with us!

Ok, a bonus favorite....
I know it's only the beginning, but as always, I'm hooked!
Is anyone with me?
What are you loving lately?
