May 2018 // Monthly Favorites

This is a post that I am going to start doing toward the end of each month to let you know my favorites, things I have been loving over the course of the month, and allow you to join the party of greatness. Hope you enjoy!

Beauty + Personal Care highlights

Neutrogena Daily Cleanser | I was in need of a new cleanser that was gentle and hydrating. I have another cleanser that I use for keeping my skin clear and pores clean, but I can’t use that one everyday or it dries out my skin. I have heard a lot of great things about this cleanser and thought I would try it since it’s affordable and highly recommended. Do you have dry sensitive skin? Are you in need of a new daily cleanser? Try this one out!

SeneDerm Face Mask | I did a whole review post on this mask because it was so dang good. If you want to read more about this mask, click HERE

Milani Dewy Makeup Setting Spray | I thought I loved my other setting sprays, but this one takes the crown. The other sprays I have used don’t even COMPARE to this one. After I put on my makeup, I literally spray this twice on my face and all the powders just melt together for such a natural dewy finish, and on top of that, my makeup stays all day. It’s the best of both worlds. This is everything I’ve ever looked for in a setting spray, and it’s affordable too (I got mine at Ulta).

YouTube highlights (click the photos to go to account)

laurenliz  | Videos about hand lettering, note-taking, and bullet journaling. She’s super talented and her videos always make me feel so inspired to be creative and organized!

September Studies  | a lovely account for organization and college students. Every time I watch her videos all I want to do is buy an iPad and get my life together. Also take a nap because her voice is so calming. Is that weird? Possibly.

bitsofbrittany | my IRL grungy ginger flower, + size YouTuber and body positive influencer, who also loves all things Disney and posts the occasional cover (which are my fave). Check her out she’s freaking amazing.

Organization highlights

Happy Planner 2018 | I love my happy planner. I use my online calendar, but there’s something about writing everything down and having it right in front of you at all times that helps me so much, especially when I’m planning out my week. It’s also super cute and every time I open up a new page it makes me smile with cute pictures and quotes and hand-lettering designs. It’s also super customizable! I highly recommend you try this out.

Book highlights

1) Almost Adulting | Due to school just ending, I haven’t had a whole lot of time to pick up a new book. However, I just recently finished (like two months ago but never really said anything about) “Almost Adulting” by Arden Rose, who is literally the funniest, most relatable, realistic, genuine person you will ever fine on the internet.

Her book really put the transition to adult life into perspective and made it a little less scary, and a whole lot less lonely. Highly recommend this fun book to anyone going through the transition from adolescence to adulthood.

2) Fan-Girl | I’m currently in the middle of "Fan-Girl" by Rainbow Rowell. Yes I know it’s a Young Adult book, but sometimes you have to pick up a fun, easy, fiction book to get the juicing flowing and get the habit of reading started again. At least that’s how it works for me.

So far it’s been really great, it’s taking me a while to finish it because life gets in the way, but I’m almost done. It’s a relatable book about an outcast college student and I would recommend this book to anyone in college going through the transition of leaving home, finding new relationships to latch onto, and, especially, my fellow introverted friends who literally would just stay in their dorm all day everyday if they could.

What are some of your favorites from this month?
