Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling | My Kit Co. 0.8 My Flawless PowderGoody SlideProof Spiky Soft Touch Hair Elastics | Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener | Bhave Fresh Ends Repair & Protect

Wow! I can’t believe its almost July 4th! Also, Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian readers out there. Anyways, this month I have some lifestyle favorites in addition to beauty favorites. I have really been enjoying Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling. It is such a great book filled with advice, life experiences, and a touch of humor. My second lifestyle favorites is the Goody SlideProof Spiky Soft Touch Hair Elastics (phew! that was a long name) because they do not fall out! I have super thick hair an hair ties always fall out if I don’t use two or three. These hair ties however, will stay in all day.


I have also been loving the My Kit Co. 0.8 My Flawless Powder brush for applying loose powders all over my face (which is necessary, for my oily skin!)  and even blush. It is super, super, soft and picks up the perfect amount of product. Continuing with beauty, I have been loving the Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener from Jane Iredale. It is the perfect primer because it makes my skin feel smooth, hydrated, and look brighter. It smells amazing too! Finally, I have been loving the Bhave Fresh Ends Repair & Protect because it helps my damaged hair regain the shine and strength it has lost because heat damage.


That’s it guys! I hope you enjoy this post and try out some of these items. What are you enjoying this month? Let me know! I love hearing from you guys.

FOREO ISSA Hybrid in Mint | A6 Memobottle | Studio Gear Cosmetics True Whipped Stain Gloss in True Pebble | Shop LVX Nail Lacquer in Blush | Poweradd Pilot 2GS Portable Charger in Rose Gold


I won’t say too much about the FOREO ISSA Hybrid because I made a post comparing it to an Oral-B toothbrush, which can be found here. The FOREO ISSA Hybrid is such a luxurious toothbrush and great for sensitive and normal teeth.

The A6 Memobottle is very small, about the size of a book and it is really easy to store. I also love the fact that it comes with a black and white cap. I will have full blog posts coming up on the Studio Gear Cosmetics lippie and the LVX Nail Lacquer coming up.


What were some of your favorites this month?

Spongellé

Spongellé has created a bath sponge that is infused with body wash. I love a good bath because it really helps me feel clean and refreshed. Also, I love that the body wash and the sponge are together, saving you time. The Boxed Flower – Papaya Zuzu* from Spongellé is essential for a relaxing bath.

Upon opening it, I could immediately smell the wonderful aroma that it produced. It has a clean yet bright smell that is simply amazing. Furthermore, after all of the body wash has been used, you can continue to use it as a regular bath sponge. Get it here for only $16.

Will you be trying out the Spongellé Boxed Flowers?

5 Ways to De-stress

IMG_1018.jpg

Stress happens to all of us, for a variety of reasons. These are just some things to try out to relax. Please keep in mind that different things work for different people because, well, we’re all different. Enjoy!

Exercise:
Exercising releases endorphins, which makes you happier. I love to go for a short run if I am having a stressful day because it really clears my head and gives me time to think about the situation. 

Eat a Healthy Snack:
Please note, this does not mean stress or binge eating. Eating a small snack such as fruit, will give you energy and make you feel clean and healthy. Strawberries are simply delicious and by far my favorite fruit. 

Talk to Someone/Rant:
This is pretty self-explanatory but often looked over. Find someone whom you trust and tell them what is stressing you and why. I love to talk with my dog because she makes me happy and doesn’t judge me (admit it, you do it too!) Talking to someone really helps let out your emotions and lift a weight off of your chest. 

Listen to Music:
Music has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. A song can really help you feel better and calm down depending on how you feel. 

Write/Draw:
Doing these things really help me calm down. Try drawing a friend, your dog, or even a flower. It really does help you think about what is bothering you and helps calm you down.
