Actually … that’s a lie, September is probably my favorite .. BUT these are my favorite things THIS MONTH!! Which happens to be June
Okay, I’ve been on a health kick ….. seriously my diet would make some-bunny jealous … But in eating way less and way healthier, I have discovered (with the help of a friend) www.SkinnyTaste.com . On this site, you can find lightened up recipes of favorites, and new alike ! Another site that is amazing is EmilyBites.com , I am currently smelling the smell of Home Made Braciole, that miss Emily Bites convinced me I could make… Can’t wait to try it!. If you’re looking for some recipes to make for yourself, and your family .. these two sites are great to feed picky eaters (me) without slapping on pounds of butter and cream!
2. Jen Lancaster
My favorite type of book is .. Chick Lit. My favorite Author, is Jen Lancaster. She is Hilarious, and not one single book she’s ever written has Disappointed me. They are great, easy reads that will make you laugh so hard you’ll cry. I am looking very forward to her newest book “The Tao of Martha” in which Jen lives the life-lessons of Martha Stewart for an entire year. I am sure hilarity ensues and I might pick up a few tips !
3. Picture Polish
It is NO secret that I am a polish addict… and hoarder. Well one day I ran across the Australian brand Picture Polish while browsing www.Llarowe.com (if you’re a polish addict and DON’T know about this site … then .. well.. no that isn’t possible)
So, I purchased a few of these polishes… and INSTANTLY fell in love…. they have proven to be my favorite formula of polish that Ive tried this far…. Cosmos is my personal favorite thus far, and .. may be the most gorgeous color I have EVER used. Being as I have .. 100’s of polishes.. ( literally ) this is a Big deal !!!
4. Bruno Mars and Olly Murrs
These two men are what you will hear me be-bopping around to in my apartment if you happen to walk by ..
Bruno Mars has been on the scene for a minute longer than Olly, but both have a ……. retro, throw back channel that I am OBSESSED with!!! Anything that I can dance around like an idiot with my dog in my kitchen is a real winner for me .. My top song suggestions for the two of them are :
Bruno: Natalie & Young Girls
Olly: Dance with me Tonight & Troublemaker
Listen now, thank me later . ( don’t forget to dance around like an idiot .. it is IMPERATIVE !! )
5.Guerlain Ceil d’Enfer Maxi Lash Aka. KICK ASS MASCARA
Lets begin by saying . SEPHORA IS EVIL…. and by evil, I mean brilliant. I was buying some essentials online and of course online you get to pick out 3 free samples with any order. So I did .. This Mascara was one of them ….. which in itself was an oddity.. I usually do not mix up my mascaras.. as I really am partial to Huge Thick Long …….. Lashes.
I decided to try it yesterday as I wasn’t going to wear my trademark cat-eye liner… but still needed a little eye drama. I put this mascara on. It proceeded to BLOW MY MIND. No smudging, no clumping, thick beautiful perfect lashes. To be FAIR I love the falsie look, so I want my lashes to be a little longer than this mascara can fulfill, but that is easily remedied with a coat of a lengthener previous to this finishing touch.
The kicker, it is $30.00 .. THIRTY FREAKING DOLLARS .. This is way more than I’d usually EVER spend on a mascara …………. But I am justifying it because .. well I am. Trust me.. you try it, you will too !
Alright friends, that will do it for this months favorite things .. keep a look out for some more posts this month ….. I am hoping to spend some time typing away for the sake of your entertainment!
