June Favorites

Happy Monday everyone! I'm back with my monthly favorites and I can't wait to share with you all what I've been loving for the month of June.













1. Lilly Pulitzer Tops
It is no secret that I love me some Lilly Pulitzer. I've said it a million times and I will say it again. If I could have a closet full of Lilly Pulitzer and nothing else, it would make me the happiest girl in the world.

Lately I have been on a Lilly Pulitzer shopping kick. I'm trying to build up my collection of Lilly pieces and there's so many cute new things out for the summer. It's hard not to want to buy everything in site.

As you know, I've been loving my Elsa in First Impression and now I have another Elsa in Tusk in Sun and an Iona Shell in Multi Behind the Gates Engineered that I have been wearing nonstop.

2. Shiseido Accentuating Cream Eyeliner in 2
OH MY GOODNESS! I don't know what I was doing my whole life without this thing. I've literally had this little pot for over five years and it hadn't been touched since I first bought it.

I had my makeup done for a high school dance, and this eyeliner was one of the products the Shiseido lady used on my face, so my mom bought it for me.

I'm pretty sure I never pulled it out because I never knew how to apply gel liner. I don't really know what made me want to pull it out recently, but since I do have a brush kit with an eyeliner brush, I decided to give this a try.
Regardless of having this eyeliner for over five years, I'm so impressed with the quality. I'm enjoying wearing this instead of my harsh black eyeliner. The dark brown makes my eyes look softer for the summer and it's definitely work appropriate.

3. Too Faced Natural Eye Palette
I decided to shop my makeup stash and use some of the products I've forgot about. I ended up bringing this palette back out and fell in love with it all over again.
I don't care what anyone says, this is a great neutral palette. The colors are so buttery! I think my favorite look in this palette is the "Day" look, which uses all matte colors.

The "Day" look makes you look so put together, without being over the top. I even hit pan on Velvet Revolver this month!

4. MAC Lipstick in Enchanted One
Girls, girls, girls! I think I have found one of my top favorite nude lipsticks! Although I have plenty of lippies in bright pinks, corals and reds, I honestly never wear them.

I always wear nudes because I feel the most comfortable in them. I am always on the search for the next best nude color, and this one is it for me.
Ever since I received this from an online order I placed on Nordstrom, I cannot stop wearing it. I think it looks flattering for my skin tone and how cute is this limited edition packaging?

I'm so sad this is a limited edition product, but I hear Kinda Sexy from MAC is also pretty similar to this. I'll probably have to pick that one up soon and switch back and forth between the two colors.

5. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
I had a baby sized sample of this mascara from my A Few of my Favorite Things gift set I had bought around Christmas time, so I decided to bust it out since I was running out of my Maybelline Big Eyes mascara.
You can tell the mascara is drying out quite fast
The first couple of days I used it, I loved it! It made my lashes look so lush! It doesn't quite have the same effect as it first did, but nonetheless I still really do enjoy the mascara.

6. Orly's Oh Cabana Boy
It's rare for me to want to use a nail color continuously. I want to wear this color all the time. I think it's so flattering and the perfect pink for summer. It's bright and fun.

I feel like this color is literally made from unicorn tears. It's that amazing. Orly's formulation is one of the best I have ever used! Love, love, LOVE!

7. Tory Burch Holly Bookbag

You knew I had to add my new crossbody in my favorites for the month! I love this bag so much. It's small enough to where I don't feel weighed down by my bag, yet big enough to fit all of my necessities (and I have a lot of necessities). It's such a gorgeous bag and I love the emblem detail on the front.
The Sweetest Thing
I've been following Emily Gemma's blog since the end of March. I am absolutely in love with everything about her. Not only do I want her closet, but she's absolutely gorgeous. I swear every time she posts her OOTD, I want to buy everything she has on!

Kelly in the City
Much like Emily Gemma's blog, I am absolutely obsessed with the blog, Kelly in the City. I love reading about her life and I swoon every single time she posts an OOTD. I would love to have a wardrobe like Kelly's. Her style is preppy and classy! I LOVE it!

That's it for my monthly favorites! I'm so excited June is over because July is my birthday month! Yay! Tell me what you've been loving for the month of June!

Love and desserts,

  1. Coming over from the Lovely Thursdays link-up. I also Kelly's blog! She has great style. I've never tried any Too Faced Cosmetics, but I will have to give them a try. I don't have a good nude palette. Have a great long weekend!

    1. Thank you so much for stopping by! Kelly's great! You must give Too Faced a try. I'm sure they won't disappoint you! I've also heard the Lorac Pro palette is an excellent nude palette, as well! My weekend was wonderful and I hope you had the same! :)
