June Favorites

Another month has come and gone...I can't believe the summer is flying by so quickly! Especially because this winter draggggged! I am thankful though, that this season has been remarkably pleasant, and we've been able to spend a ton of time outside!

Now for my favorites and must-haves from the month of June!
I know some of these things will be favorites all summer long...I've found some gems!
Mint Julips
Lush "Mint Julips" Lip Scrub
This scrub has been my best friend all month long, and a daily part of my morning (and night) routine! It leaves the lips feeling so buttery smooth and refreshed, leaving the perfect canvas for a bold lip or gloss. It prevents your lipstick from cracking and finding its way into your little lines and creases. AND it tastes like chocolate and mint - yes, that's's all natural so you just lick it right off! ;)

Benefit Cosmetics - The POREfessional

I actually just blogged about recently picking this up, and I've been wearing it almost every day
since!  Well at least all the days I wear makeup. It is a wonderful primer, as it smooths and evens out your skin before putting on your tinted moisturizer or foundation. It also reduces the appearance of
pores, and helps your makeup really stay put! Sephora has a smaller size, perfect for travel or trying
out for the first time.

Revlon "Craving Coral"
This has definitely been a favorite polish of mine over the past month- as I've worn it on my nails and toes pretty much every day! It's the perfect orange/red shade, and looks great with a little tan :)
 I get so many compliments on it!

Revlon "Minted"
If I wasn't wearing "Craving Coral" on my nails, it was this gorgeous minty green shade. It's actually
been a tried and true favorite of mine for several years, and I always find myself reaching for it every spring and summer!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes in "Dollface" and "Dazzled"
These blushes are amazing! I've probably mentioned them before, but they really are that good!
And these are the only 2 blushes I've been reaching for lately. They claim to last 12 hours on the cheeks, and I have to be honest....I think they are right! Never has a blush stayed put like these do! And they have a great color range...I've been wanting to buy the "Captivating" shade next- a gorgeous peach, perfect for summer!

Urban Decay Setting Spray
Speaking of having your makeup stay put...this bad boy does the trick every time! I love spritzing this all over, after I have put on my "face" and I'm ready to go. It's so refreshing in this warm weather, and just freezes everything and makes it really last. It's like a hairspray - for your skin!

Anthropologie Sunnies
I bought these for myself on my birthday in May, and I am absolutely in love with them! I wear them almost everyday with pretty much every outfit! Love the tortoise frames, and subtle cat-eye shape!

Watermelon Sangria

I have been on such a watermelon kick this summer! I know it's the cliche fruit of the season, but there's a reason for that! They are just so yummy and the perfect refreshing snack :) I also want to try out a few watermelon recipes...
like this Watermelon Sangria....

Star Watermelon Blueberry Salad | Baking with Blondie

And how cute are these Watermelon Stars?! Perfect for the holiday weekend coming up! I'm gonna have to make them!

So You Think You Can Dance
John and I are big fans of this show, and this season is exceptionally good! They just picked the top 20 dancers, so now it's about to get really amazing! So impressed and inspired by these talented individuals!

Wunder Under Crop

Lululemon Wunder Under Crops
First let me say, I realize these are not cheap.  Ok, that being said, I live in these leggings.  No they are not just for working out.  They are for living in.  I got mine 2 years ago, and they still to this day fit like a glove, have not stretched (I even wore them through my pregnancy!), and look and feel amazing!  They are an investment for sure, but really do hold up so well, and they do a fabulous job of sucking everything in.
Who doesn't want that? :)  

What are your favorites from June?
Any favorites of mine you want to try?

I have been wanting to go to Lush for so long but there isn't one available in my town. UGH! It also doesn't help that my friend works there in Tampa. Not fair!!

I want those lulumon under crops. I have never heard of them. But they would have been perfect for my Disney trip this weekend!!

Kristal {The Strong Family} said...

Oh I love Lush! Next time I'm there I'll have to pick up some of that scrub. And that mint Polish is so pretty!! We've only had one small watermelon so far, I need to grab some more. They are the perfect summertime treat. :)

Caitlin C. said...

Love all your picks… now I really want to buy that lip scrub!! Some bold lipsticks don't look good on me cause my lips need some exfoliating!

Kallie @ But First, Coffee said...

Those are tow of my all time favvvv Revlon polishes! Great picks for the month!

BLovedBoston said...

I have the Tarte blush and it's amazing!! Love the coral nail polish - thanks for sharing the color - i kept seeing it in your pictures :) I have the minted one and its also one of my favorites! Must try watermelon sangria!! Love everything!

Nina @ Flowers in my Hair said...

I love lush and love Tarte. And your sunnies!!!! Lulu lemon is for living in. I only have one pair but yes, I may or may not live in them ;)

Lauren said...

I swear by Pore-fessional too, I literally can't put on makeup without it now. However, Maybelline makes a duplicate product called Baby Skin that works just as well and is way cheaper.

Love the sound of that scrub! I've heard so much about that setting spray. I'll have to check it out. Yay for watermelon season... that salsa sounds delish!

MakeMeUpMia said...

Where do I even start?!- I love all things watermelon, that primer, that setting spray and Tarte blushes ;) Your glasses are so cute and I love both of your polish picks, I may have to grab those! Thanks for linking up girl!

Kelli @ A Deeper Joy said...

All of that watermelon looks delicious! :) I have never heard of lip scrub but it definitely sounds like something that I'd want to try...especially all natural! And I LOVE those nail colors. I've found that my Revlon nail polish stay on better than most. Thanks for joining the link-up!

Annie {Home of Malones} said...

I need to try that UD make up setter because my makeup is literally melting off in this Florida heat!! I'm loving everything watermelon right now too and so is my son so we've had a lot of watermelon around here!

Mree said...

I taking watermelon to my little girl's daycare tomorrow for their 4th of July party! :) You can't go wrong with watermelon this time of year! Love the setting spray, ps.

Ashley said...

I'm obsessed with watermelon during the summer months, too! Love your picks. I need to try that lip scrub! Sounds amazing.

Carly Blogs Here said...

I've been wanting to try one of the lush lip scrubs for so long and think I might need to just bite the bullet and purchase one! Minted looks like a gorgeous nail polish shade- I love any that are blue/green! I'm also so tempted to try one of the Tarte blushes, I've heard nothing but amazing things- I need to get to Sephora so I can swatch a few! And I am completely obsessed with my UD setting spray as well! I use the de-slick and it makes the biggest different in how my makeup looks!

preppylove said...

I would love to try that makeup setting spray! I've never used one but it's a good idea!


Nat said...

I have those anthro sunnies and love them! I need to try that lip scrub and primer- my lips need some help this summer!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Those sunglasses are cute they look great on you! I totally have the lip scrub but haven't used it. I need to try it already!
