Favorites: April & May 2019

Monday, June 3, 2019

A collective of favorites for the months of April and May 2019.

NARS 'Dolce Vita' Lip Gloss: NARS' Dolce Vita is my current favorite lip gloss. The color is described as 'sheer dusty rose' (lol the word dusty is just so tragic to me). Dolce Vita looks fabulous on me (and I'm sure it would look fabulous on all skin colors and tones)! I love its buildable color coverage, shine and texture. Perfect for everyday wear!

Alter Eco Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Truffles: I am a truffle connoisseur. I am very picky about the chocolate that I indulge in (I'm picky about everything, what's new!). I like to eat chocolate cultivated by brands that use organic and/or all-natural ingredients. I appreciate Alter Ego's chocolate because it is organic, gluten-free and fair trade.

NYX Professional Makeup 'Fruit Punch' Butter Lipstick: My current favorite drugstore lipstick. A pop of pink on the lips is always essential! I wear NYX's fruit punch butter lipstick by itself or in correlation with two other lip products. In correlation lip combination: I line my lips with a deep pink lipliner, apply fruit punch butter lipstick and top it with a sheer coral lipgloss.

Gold Stainless Steel Straws: Chic reusable straws?! Eco-friendly, stylish and gold?! Yes, thank you!

Tiara Headphones: A tiara + headphones, need I say more?! My favorite headphones since I received them a few months ago. A gift from my older sister (thanks sis!).

Tiff Note: Don't mind my bronzer, I may have been a little heavy-handed with it on the day this photo was taken.

Ok, back to the topic at hand...

My headphones are sold out but I'm sure you will be able to find similar headphones.

The Netflix Original Series 'Black Summer': Black Summer did not disappoint. It was definitely worth watching. My sister and I binge-watched season one in about three days.

I don't watch tv or movies often but when I do, I usually watch tv shows and movies pertaining to a zombie apocalypse and/or (Biblical) end-times. I also like watching documentaries, 90s tv shows/movies, chick flicks, The Handmaid's Tale and Orange is the New Black. And... upon selection, I watch certain movies and tv shows to be aware of predictive programming.

Sanpellegrino (S.Pellegrino) Pomegranate & Orange Sparkling Fruit Beverage and Essenza Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate Flavored Mineral Water: Sanpell (as I call the brand) sparkling mineral water, sparkling fruit beverages and still water (Acqua Panna) are some of my favorite beverages. I have been drinking Sanpellegrino brand beverages since my childhood.

Anastasia Beverly Hills' Riviera Eyeshadow Palette and Fenty Beauty's Body Lava Swatches: These colors a gorgeous and flatter my skin tone very well!

Schmidt's Rose + Vanilla Natural Deodorant: My favorite all-natural aluminum-free deodorant. The scent of this deodorant is very pleasant.

Pearl Headband (Faux): I love this pearl headband. I've worn it with a t-shirt, jeans and loafers as well as with a cable-knit cardigan, cami top and leggings. It adds understated elegance to my everyday casual attire.

Hello Kitty Keychain: This Hello Kitty keychain makes me smile at my keys. I love Hello Kitty! She has been my favorite character since childhood.

D.W. Read (Arthur) & Angelica Pickles (Rugrats) Lapel Pins: My favorite lapel pins so far! I plan to place these lapel pins on my pink cashmere cardigan or on my pink jean jacket. I haven't quite decided yet. 

Simply Gum: Simply Gum's ginger (mint is also one of my favorite flavorschewing gum was just about the only gum I chewed during the month of May! I love supporting intelligent brands that produce quality products! Due to personal experience, I can honestly say that Simply Gum is one of the most attentive companies and has some of the best chewing gum on the market! 

Sephora Collection 'Berry Go Round' Gloss Balm: Berry Go Round is one of  Sephora's best gloss balm colors! I consider Berry Go Round an everyday lip gloss to stay glossed up in! I love its color, texture and shine!
