malie organics plumeria candle // this candle is too delicious for words. it doesn’t even need to be lit to get a whiff of softly fragrant plumeria flowers (the flowers of leis). it smells like the real thing, is fresh and clean, and isn’t overwhelming at all. it also works well with my pf candle co gardenia&coconut candle.
first aid beauty ultra repair cream // a really great mousse-y hand lotion. i’m always on the search for the best hand lotion and this is definitely up there with my favorites. plus it’s unscented.
nars pure radiant tinted moisturizer in terre neuve // i’m not a foundation person, but i want a little bit of evening out since i’m still healing from my acne. this offers just a little bit of coverage as well as spf. i mix this with a little dot of the perricone md no bronzer and it just gives it a little bit of warmth (this shade is my match but i feel like it makes me look very pale). it’s a great mix. i don’t look or feel like i have anything on, but my skin looks a little bit more perfected.
bare minerals original foundation in fairly medium // the first expensive makeup product i ever used and that i always come back to. great for setting makeup, making me less shiny, and adding a little bit of extra coverage. plus it also has spf and a great color range.
bare minerals brush // i’ve had this for quite some time but keep forgetting to mention it! my favorite all around powder and bronzer brush. its big without being too big, and ridiculously soft. it applies and blends perfectly.
to the ocean bracelet // i haven’t taken this off the whole month. it’s bright but barely there and come on, how can you beat the message. it’s a mermaid essential.
yoga // may has been a great month for me and yoga. i’ve really committed to going regularly and i am already feeling the benefits both on the mat and off.
karma yama leggings // i got these on sale on yogaoutlet and i wear them to almost every yoga class. they are high waisted, a great fit, and don’t ride up or fall down. definitely an investment but i’m really glad i splurged. plus they aren’t pilling which i’ve heard is an issue people have with lululemon.
birkenstock gizeh birkoflor // i absolutely love my birkenstock arizona’s, but for a long time i couldn’t get the gizeh’s out of my head. i purchased them earlier this spring and have worn them almost every day this month now that it’s sandal weather. i love them just as much as my others and am glad that i have two styles of birkenstocks to switch between. i chose the birkoflor because it looks like leather but is not as rough on my feet, plus it’s cheaper.
light wash levi’s 501s // these are a classic for a reason. they fit so perfectly, make my butt look nice and perky, and just make me feel good. i like that they are fitted at the top but not at the bottom, and i feel like the straight leg is such a nice alternative to a skinny jean, but not quite a boot cut (cause i’m no longer into those)
swell water bottle // i get dehydrated very, very easily and always realize that i need water when it’s way too late. i’ve solved this issue by carrying my water bottle around with me absolutely everywhere. plus this one keeps the water cold for a full day! again, this was a bit of splurge, but it was definitely a good purchase. i have the medium size, 17 oz.
whew, that was a long one! as you can see, may was a pretty good month, both product wise and experience wise. there were some tough times this month, but i’m learning every day how to let things roll off my back, stay true to myself, and remain happy. i will always be a work in progress, but i’m ok with that.
