Okay, what? June is over? So weird! On the plus side, this means I get to share my first favorites post!
For those who might never have seen a favorites video or post, I’m basically just going to talk about the things I’ve been loving this month, other than songs, which I’ve already posted about!
Here’s an overall pic of some of the stuff I couldn’t get enough of this June!
Let’s do a rundown, shall we?
I’ve seriously been loving to wear higher waisted shorts. The coral and hunter green colors I have are both from Urban Outfitters. They are the BDG Alexa Mid-Rise shorts. They’re super comfortable (after a wash cycle). PS: be sure to wash these shorts in their own loads of laundry; the dye in them will spread, as I found out the hard way!
I paired the outfit with some peep-toe flats from (you guessed it!) Urban Outfitters. Can you tell I recently spent a lot of money there?
As for the makeup favorites, I’ve already mentioned Tarte’s Exposed blush, which is pinky-brown, super long wearing, and a color I’d say would flatter anyone! I’ve also been loving the Rimmel Apocalips lipgloss range. The two colors I have are Stellar and Big Bang.
In regards to nail polish, I’ve been into corals, as you can see from the picture of my feet above! If you’re looking for budget nail polishes, Wet N’ Wild has some great summer colors on display at the moment!
BTW, during my Urban Outfitters shopping spree, I totally freaked out when I saw they had Tangle Teasers in stock! I’ve been lusting after one for the longest time, so I didn’t pass up the opportunity to snatch up this cute baby blue one!
They are great on wet or dry hair, and don’t do half as much damage to your hair as normal brushes would. Here’s an artsy picture of mine, which I now realize looks like a kidney bean. Oh well.
As for two random faves, I’ve been loving Soap and Glory’s Hand Food, which is a hand lotion. It smells amazing, and I picked this one up from Sephora for a fiver. I’ve also been on my feet a lot, and my new Sanuks have definitely helped make my life easier! I’d def recommend them to anyone who’s ever wanted to walk on a cloud. It’s a good time.
As always, I’ve loved wearing way too many rings at once. I added two to my collection this month, as you’ll see below. One is a fish-bone toe ring, and the other is the one on the far left.
Last but not least, I’ve developed an obsession with viruses. Now that sounds strange, and you’re probably thinking I’m a freak, but they’re so fascinating. I re-watched Contagion this month, and also went to see World War Z, and both these movies re-ignited my intrigue about how viruses spread and manipulate, and how we re-act to them as individuals both psychologically and physically, and how society re-acts as a whole. As the human body breaks down and is consumed by sickness, so does society deteriorate, erasing taboo and creating chaos in the process.
(Apologizes for English major freak-out)
Anyways, if that sort of thing interests you too, you should read The Hot Zone by Richard Preston. It’s a true story, but reads like fiction. I’m telling you, even Steven King calls it a page-turner. I promise, you won’t regret reading it, except that you might not ever want to touch anyone or anything or leave the confines of your own home ever again.
It’s worth it. Here’s me pretending to read it!
Anyways, hope you enjoyed my first ever favorites post!
