I haven’t done a monthly favorites in the longest time! If you’re new, it’s where I share favorite links, tips, and things I’m loving that month. It’s a fun way to share random tidbits about my life that I usually don’t blog about!
1. New way to apply mascara
If I could only use one item of makeup for the rest of my life, it would be mascara. I love it! I was recently reading Gal Meets Glam and came across this game-changing tip about how she applies mascara. She starts by doing one coat with an older tube of mascara. Then she adds a second layer with a newer, more liquid-y tube. Finally, before she runs out the door she adds a third coat. I thought it was a bit excessive but I was about to throw away my old tube of my tube of mascara, so tried it and it really does work well! Try it out and let me know what you think!
2. Tons of new music
There have been so many new releases lately! My 3 favorite new songs right now are “Despacito – Remix” by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee, “Thunder” by Imagine Dragons, and “Good life” by with G-Eazy and Kehlani. I also recently discovered MisterWives thanks to my sister and they are super good!
3. Favorite new snack
The picture above is of this DELICIOUS acai bowl I got recently. It has an acai puree at the bottom topped with granola, peanut butter, and fresh fruit. One of my friends joked that it looked delicious even though it was healthy, so acai bowls or fruit salads are definitely an idea to try for picky eaters!
4. Newfound love of walks
The last few months I’ve been going on a lot of walk with my friends and family! I was never a walking enthusiast but now I love going on walks! There is something about spending time outdoors in nature and soaking up the sun (with sunscreen of course!) that just really boosts my mood!
5. What I’m watching
Have you watched Jane the Virgin before? It is so addicting! I finished the first 2 seasons and am in love! I’m also loving Monica Church’s vlogs when I want a quick 5-10 minute break. I really love the way she edits her clips.
Do you share any of my new favorites?! Would love to hear in a comment!
