Monthly Favorites: June

Hi stylish dreamers! (cute name for you guys?) Before I get into this post I wanted to say that as of June 27th 2014 my blog has hit the one year old mark! I'm so happy that I choose to stay with it and let it grow. I even gave it a complete makeover and change the direction I wanted to go with it originally. Even though my blog is still small, making it has been one of the best decisions of my life. Starting this blog has done so many things for me, not only is it a perfect creative outlet for me when it comes to wanting to share my favorite things with you all but it also has created many friendships for me. I've gotten to know a few of you bloggers out there and you are all such amazing people, I want to continue to meet other and let my blog grow. It's something that I hold close to my heart and love dearly, and I just want to thank you all for joining me on this awesome journey. 

Okay so I'm back today with my June favorites! I have a lot of good items I want to share with you all today so lets just get right into it. 


Eyes: Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Pallet: ($64.00)
What I like about this: Okay guys don't harass me yet! I know I'm SUPER DUPER late on getting on the Naked 3 bandwagon but I have a some what valid reason for that. I didn't get the pallet right when it came out because 1: it was sold out everywhere! (NOT KIDDING) and 2: I didn't feel I really needed it just yet. I had just gotten around the time it came out the Vice 2 pallet by Urban Decay so I had just filled my pallet craving. But now that I have it I can honestly say I'm totally in LOVE with it. I've been using it every day so far and my favorite shadows in it are 'Limit' and 'Nooner' I really like the mattes. I also love how soft and romantic this pallet it. Not only is it the amazing Naked quality you expect it's in amazing flattering rose gold tones that are the new neutrals to have in your make up collection.

Eyes: L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara: ($12.99)
What I like about this: So as you probably have figured out I'm not one to buy high end mascaras, sure once and a while I'll try one but I'd rather buy the 'just as good in my opinion' drug store ones. Perviously I was on a Maybelline mascara roll and I was buying only buying that brand. But I decided to try out the telescopic mascara since I heard really good reviews on it. I love love love the formula and the brush on this mascara. It works really well for me and I definitely recommend it. 

Face: Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in 'Parke Ave Princess': ($30.00)
What I like about this: If you can't tell in the picture the one I have isn't the full size. I actually received the sample half size for my 500 Sephora point bonus and was really excited to try it. I have really fair skin so I was afraid that this bronzer might make me look too bronze but that is not the case. This product works really well with my skin and gives me the right amount of a summer glow. 

Face: Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in '15 Fair': ($6.50)
What I like about this: I had been wanting to buy the Nars Creamy Concealer in 'Chantilly' for some time but every time I go look for it it's sold out. I was recommended by a fellow beauty guru to try out the Fit me by Maybelline as it is known to be a dup for the Nars. I have to say even though I haven't tried the Nars Creamy Concealer yet, I really do like the way the the Fit Me works. The formula is very nice and blends very easily for a flawless look.   

Hair: Psssssst Instant Dry Shampoo Spray: ($5.99)
What I like about this: I was in the market for a new dry shampoo for quiet sometime and when I was in Ulta I saw this shampoo and remember a youtube beauty guru rave about it. It was on sale for $2.50 a bottle so I picked up a couple of bottles to try. I've got to say this product totally lived up to it's expectations, I love to use dry shampoo the day after I shower to give my hair some lift without washing out all the natural oils and this dry shampoo actually works really well. It really does do it's job right!

Fashion: Homies 'Los Angeles' Tank: ($15.00)
What I like about this: I found this shirt at Wet Seal and I'm totally in love with it! I've paired it with so many great outfits, it's one of my favorite summer tops.

Food: Lindt 85% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Bar: ($4.00)
What I like about this: Dark chocolate has always been a favorite of mine, but recently I've just been craving it more. This is my favorite type of dark chocolate, when I'm craving some I break off one square and it satisfies my caving.
