The first day of Summer is just a few short weeks away AND we're already six months into the year! Time must go faster as you get older because I feel that every year passes by quicker than the last. May was filled with birthday parties, Disneyland trips
, extra hours at work and the start of exciting Summer movies (even after seeing Godzilla
and the new X-men
movie Captain America 2
still is my favorite film of the year thus far)! Among those activities I also had a few favorites of the month...
My husband purchased the Redken Heat Protective Spray
for me in January for my birthday. It's a lightweight spray that protects hair from flat irons and curling irons up to 450 degrees while adding shine and reducing frizz. I love the scent and it makes my hair feel great! I can definitely see and feel a difference when I use it before straightening my hair. TIP:
After spraying, brush through your hair so it's evenly distributed.
If you saw my latest outfit post
you probably remember seeing my Simply Vera Wang Sunglasses. They are perfect for the season and are unlike any other pair I have. I still can't believe I found them for just a couple of dollars! Kohls always has great sales going! on!
I really like the NYX brand but hadn't tried one of their basic baked blushes
until last month. I chose the shade Rose Garden
. It's a more vibrant pink than what I normally wear and has a hint of gold shimmer. It's nice, lasts all day and is very pigmented!
I've been on this major waffle kick lately. Yes, I have two boxes of them in the freezer right now. It isn't the most healthy option but they don't contain any artificial flavors, colors or preservatives so that's definitely better than the Eggo waffles. They are normally $1.99 for a box of 8 at Fresh & Easy. You know, just in case you need some waffles in your life. ;)
I hope you all enjoy the first week of June! Let me know if you had any favorite things last month that you feel I should know about!
