June was a great month. My birthday, a visit to Paisley Park, a Twin’s Baseball game, beachy fun and a little too much time in the sun. Summer is about experiences but here are a few things, new and old, that I have loved this month:
Bite Beauty- Agave Lip Balm
I am horrible at remembering to drink enough throughout the day which means my lips are sometimes chapped even in the summer. I have tried tons of balms from Chapstick to Vaseline to way too many lip scrubs but this is the one that worked. Bite Beauty’s Agave Lip Balm has been a huge help in getting softer lips worthy of a MUA’s Instagram.

Pat McGrath- LUST: Lipgloss in BLOOD 2
First, I want you to know that I HATE lipgloss, it is smeary and sticky and you have to reapply so much. However, for some reason I really wanted to try this when I saw it on Sephora’s website. Pat McGrath is amazing and I have wanted to own something by her for a long time but I never thought it would be a gloss. I was skeptical until I tried it on and this is the most pigmented gloss I have ever tried. It is a bit heavy but it isn’t sticky and the amount of pigment means that you don’t have to reapply as often. I was so surprised at how much I liked this gloss that it is now one of my go to summer lip products especially for the beach. These glosses come in 3 finishes and 14 shades.

Killstar- New Moon Maxi Skirt
I wore this in Outfit of the Week: New Moon and have been obsessed with it ever since. This has been my going out look all month and I don’t feel bad about it one bit. When I find something that fits well and is comfortable enough to wear all day, I wear it at least once per week, that is what has happened with this skirt.

Sparkling Ice- Mystery Flavor
You know how when you were a kid it was fun to try mystery flavored candy and guess what it tastes like? Sparkling Ice has found a way to recreate that for adults that don’t want all that sugar and it is delicious. This zero calorie, carbonated fruit drink is so yummy and I think it tastes like watermelon and strawberry but there are so many guesses on their Twitter, I even saw steak & eggs in a comment. Go to your local grocery store to try this then Tweet your guess with #WhattheFlavorSweeps to win prizes. Hurry they will only be selling this mystery until the end of July.
The Umbrella Academy
I have been a fan of the Umbrella Academy comics for years but I hadn’t actually taken them off my bookshelf for a while, until I read some articles about the Netflix show that said it is finally finishing filming this summer. In anticipation of the first season I reread the entire series and can’t wait to see how it turns out. Gerard is an executive producer and the actors seem to match up well with their characters so it should be great. If you haven’t read the comics you can order volume 1 here.
I hope you had a great month. Let me know in the comments if anything that I have shared today is on your favorites list.
Thank you so much for reading
See you Tuesday
