May Favorites

Since I was a slacker and forgot to post my April favorites, I am bunching these two together.

Cream color base.
You want the J.Lo glow that has everyone talking? Use this as your highlight above your cheekbones. It dries down from a cream to a powder and will stay on for 8 hours. Pretty much, it's awesome! Especially for FL weather! You better believe I've been putting it on all my brides since it stays on.

Haviana flip flops.
I have two pair and I feel like I live in them. I've had them a few years now, but I do remember when I first heard about them, I didn't understand the hype behind them. They are some of the most comfortable flip flops ever! I've worn them to amusement parks, or just walking around. My feet don't hurt in them at all.

Stephen Bonanos Sandals
Love these! Just received them last week and am already breaking them in.

Michael Kors Oversize Runway watch.
Yes, I finally got it for Mother's Day. I have the gold one. I will say, it has taken a little while to get used to because it is so big, but I LOVE it!

MAC Surf Baby Collection.
I can't say enough good things about this collection. Of all the collections MAC has come out with, this is by far one of my favorites. The colors are awesome, the bronzers are amazing, etc, etc, etc. Just go look at it! You'll fall in love.

Aveda Hair Care
I've had long hair most of my life. But the last few years, it's been a lot longer than I've had it in a long time. I owe my healthy hair to the Aveda products I use. I was turned on to them a while back and only use their line now. I have gone a few months with a different line, and I could definitely tell a difference.
When I was highlighting my hair, I used the Color Conserve and Damage Remedy line.
Now that I don't highlight or use any color in my hair, I am using the Shampure line.
I religiously use the Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother, Smooth Infusion Straightener, and Brilliant Damage Control Spray . Smooth Infusion style prep is used to make sure you hair isn't frizzy in the FL humidity. It's a must here, in my opinion. I use Smooth Infusion straightener for my flyaways. I don't blow dry my hair that often anymore, but I still love to use the damage control spray after I towel dry my hair. I feel like it's helped my hair in the past, so I just continue to use it.

Origins Vitazing
Such a great tinted moisturizer for the Summer! It's a white lotion, but once you work it with your hands, the beads in it change to the color of your skin. It's awesome!
But, as I mention in the video, if you have any type of hyperpigmentation, discoloration or redness in your skin, it's not really going to give you the coverage you may be looking for.


  1. That blush looks to pretty to use!
    Thanks for the tip on the Vitazing. I feel like everyone is talking about it and I was going to order it soon. I have to have a little coverage though so I guess it is a no-go for me.

  2. I LOVE my Bonannos their quality is AMAZING! I keep meaning to go try some aveda products too!

  3. You know me, loving my (numerous pairs of) Bonannos! As for Havianas, now that I hear you say they're comfy, I might have to invest. The watch, is that the gorgeous watch I spied when we were having lunch? Loved it!
    Have a great weekend!!!

  4. I was very impressed with the SKII Facial Treatment Essence (, enough so that I have continued to use the product daily as part of my skin care routine after the test period. It's a luxury purchase to be sure, but this is one of the best products that can really make a significant difference in your skin, and so worth every penny.

    I applied the treatment each morning and evening after cleansing my skin and before moisturizer/primer and then makeup. Within just a few days I could see that my skin was much more supple and smooth - particularly in the t-zone. After about two weeks, I loved the beautiful glow my skin had - even without makeup.
