July Favorites

I suppose I should really call these my Summer Favorites, since I missed June’s post entirely.  This seems to be a collection of several of my hot weather essentials.  Here’s what I’ve been loving for the last month (or two)!

Like I mentioned in a recent Weekly Roundup, there is something about summer that makes me reach for lip balms all the time!  I just don’t want anything heavy on my lips in this hot summer weather.

The one I have been reaching for the most is the Mango Lip Butter from Korres. It has good color payoff for a balm, and provides great hydration!  Unfortunately, I think Mango has been discontinued, but they have lots of other shades to choose from!

If I choose to wear a lipstick in the summer I have been reaching for this spunky shade from Tarte!  I would never think that this bright coral would flatter my fair skin, but it does.  I would call it the perfect orange-y shade for people afraid of orange!  The finish is comfortable and perfect for summer!

Most people are familiar with Heavenly, as it is one of Victoria’s Secret’s most popular scents.  But on it’s own it’s a little heavy for my taste.  Lately I have been layering it with my Tory Burch perfume and loving the combination!  It is summery and beachy and lasts all day!

Pardon the chipped perfume bottle. I dropped it on a granite countertop, and could have screamed when I saw the chip! I’m just thankful the entire bottle didn’t break.


I received this mascara as a sample quite some time ago, and never tried it.  I was never particularly drawn to the Buxom brand, and just kept reaching for others instead.  When I finally picked this up, I was blown away by the fluttery length it provided!  Lashes are lengthened and separated for that perfect fluttery lash, without appearing thin or spidery.

The packaging of the sample is the worst I have ever experienced.  It becomes dirty within days, with mascara coming out as you close the bottle!  I can only hope the full size is not the same or I would struggle to repurchase.

The brush on this thing is insane! Huge!


Summer makes me crave fruit, and I make sure I have some in the house at all times!  Peaches and strawberries are favorites, and are part of my lunch every day.  Yum!


There are times when I am on Pinterest a lot, and times when I am not at all. The oppressively hot weather this July means more time indoors and more time to Pinterest!  I pin Makeup & Beauty, Decorating & Design, Fashion, Planning, and more!  If you love Pinterest come check me out… I love to find new Pinners to follow!  You can see all my Pinterest boards HERE.
