May Favorites

I cannot believe it is almost June! I am personally excited because that means we are one month closer to my baby niece being born and our mini vacation this month. One of my best blogger friends gets married in the month of June too, and I cannot wait to see the pictures Macy!

I had some new favorites this month that I wanted to share, beauty/skincare and one random favorite of the month.

Clinique Moisture Surge | I am obsessed. Although a little pricey, and I did only buy the mini - it has lasted me all month and I haven't even put a dent in it. A little goes a long way with this product and it has made my dry skin so happy this past month. I use it once a day in the morning before my makeup, I will definitely be repurchasing this one.

L'Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Foundation | This goes along with me having dry skin. I love any product that will give me a natural looking glow. I apply this with my beauty blender and it is medium coverage with one application. I would recommend if you have drier skin like I do.

CoverGirl Super Sizer Mascara* | I was sent this product just to try out, and it instantly became a favorite for me. I was in love with the CoverGirl Lash Perfection mascara, and since it has been discontinued this is my new favorite from the brand.

NYX HD Concealer | I cannot say enough good things about this concealer. It gives amazing coverage and brings a lot of light to my under eye area. It's less than five bucks at Ulta too, so you can't beat that.

Essie "Blossom Dandy" | Definitely my favorite nail polish of the month. I cannot stop painting my nails this color. Joe tried to say that I already had this color, but I think he just meant that I have a ton of turquoise/blue polishes which I do but this one is so so pretty.

Simple Cleansing Micellar Water | I picked up this product toward the end of the month because I've heard so many good things about it. I've never felt the need to spend a ton of money on the Bioderma water, so when I saw that my favorite skincare brand came out with one I had to try it. I use this product every morning before I do my moisturizer and at night after I take off my eye makeup.

My random favorite of the month has got to be my FitBit. I've actually been using this everyday and committing to setting goals and trying to achieve them. It's sometimes really hard to get in my steps sitting in a cubicle so this really holds me accountable.

All products were purchased with my own money unless stated above, all opinions are my own.

c u r r e n t l y.

I'm back, and after my last post I feel like a weight has been lifted. To anyone who commented or emailed me personally, thank you so so much. I have been doing a lot of soul searching and I can honestly say that I have a lot of hope. I can't say that has been the case right after the fact, but things are looking up.

I feel like I have so much to update you guys on and things I want to share, so today I'm gonna do a little bit of that.


Reading | Savor by Shauna Niequist -- this book has been such a life saver lately. I am using it as my daily devotional, although I must admit that I read more than just the one page a day. Little did I know how much I would need this book at the time I ordered it. I feel like I can relate to Shauna on so many different levels of feelings. This book has given me light in a dark time, I highly recommend it. I also can't wait to try out some of the recipes that she has featured.

Eating | this skinny baked chicken parmesan. I was so excited to see a healthier version of one of my favorite dinners. I usually make a salad and serve the chicken on a bed of whole wheat angel hair pasta. It is delicious!  

Loving | CoverGirl Super Sizer by Lash Blast mascara. I was sent this mascara to try out and oh my goodness it is a new favorite. I have heard that it compares to the Benefit Roller Lash mascara, but since I haven't tried it I can't say for sure. It really does give great volume.

Looking forward to | VEGAS. If you didn't know, I lived in Vegas for five years and I have been dying to go back for a visit recently. Joe and I booked our room for his birthday at the end of next month!

Wanting | a new bathing suit and cover up for said Vegas trip. I plan on sipping drinks by the pool during the day and am in desperate need of a new suit, please recommend one with a push up style...I need it.

Planning | My sisters baby shower. It's at the end of this month and I am so excited. I cannot wait to shower my baby niece in SO many cute clothes. She is already beyond spoiled and I don't care one bit. The amount of love I already have for her is too much to explain. I got to feel her kick a few days ago and I think at that moment I really fell in love.
