theBalm Meet Matt(e) Nude Palette | Link
I have mentioned this palette before in blog posts, but this has been my go-to palette for the month of June. It is an all matte palette and the colors just blend so easily and don't crease on me either.

SKIN79 Super+ BB Cream |Link
I have had this product in the past but didn't really like how it looked on my skin, but I have recently had a change of heart. This bb cream goes in the skin with a gray-ish cast then changes into your skin tone. I find it applies best with a beauty sponge because it looks the most natural. It wears nicely for 6-8 hours. The only downfall to this product is that when it is super hot and humid outside, it melts right off your face.

L'oreal Miss Manga Mascara | Link
I recently did a whole post reviewing this mascara and I really enjoy it! It provides length and volume to my lashes. The brush conical shape, so it helps get mascara on those small, pesky lashes. It also has a flexible brush which helps a lot with application. I don't normally like L'oreal mascara but this one is a winner!

Other Favorites

1) TV Favorites | Pretty Little Liars and Chasing Life
I have been watching Pretty Little Liars from Season 1 and I am still enjoying the show to this date! I am very curious to find out what the big secret is between Spencer's Dad and Melissa. Chasing Life is a new show to ABC Family and have also enjoyed this show. It's about a woman named April who gets this great new job and boyfriend, then finds out she has Leukemia. I hope ABC Family doesn't kill off this show like they did to Ravenswood this past winter because I really like it!

2) My new blog design!
I worked with Kelsey who owns KreatedByKelsey1 on Etsy. I bought the premade layout and installed it myself, then she designed my new blog header. I love the color scheme, fonts, and layout. 

3) Health & Fitness
I joined a local gym this past week and have really enjoyed working out. Right now I am focusing on cardio to start building my endurance and will eventually move into weight training. I am excited to embark on this new journey in life to better my health and fitness.
