June Favorites

I had a nice introduction and everything, then I accidentally deleted this whole post ::headdesk:: Here are my June favorites, some of which I've already mentioned, a couple of which I have not. Enjoy! (I know I am.)

Jo Malone London English Pear and Freesia Room Spray I absolutely adore this room sized version of their cologne of the same name.  Lushly floral without being heavy, this scent also manages to be fruity without being cloying.  A couple of sprays and my room smells like and English garden in spring bloom.  Available online for $55.

Bumble and bumble. the Surf Set I know I just wrote about this last week, but this is definitely going to be my summer regime.  It makes my hair commit to full on curly glory, and the cult Surf Spray in this travel size is perfect for freshening up the look on the go. Available at Bluemercury, Sephora, and online for $28.

Voluspa Goji Tarocco Orange Mini Candle This is a persistent favorite, but I've gotten back into this petite perfection again while I'm working at my desk. This little trooper fills a good five foot diameter, perfect for when you want a little something without committing it to your whole living space. It smells sweet and tropical, but not fake, like a margarita from an airport bar, as many inexpensive candles do. Available at Anthropologie and online for $10.

Scratch Nail Wraps Though I must admit that Sea Ya Later was my favorite pattern, I'm still digging these nail wraps for a quick bit of nail art. The set in this picture are already on my fingers, ushering me toward my New Jersey adventure. Available online at for $12.

NARS Mini Lip Gloss Angelika From the Lose Yourself Gift Set I got during the NARS sale, this is the item I was least excited for, but it's turned out to be favorite of the bunch. It packs a nice little punch without looking overdone, and it goes perfectly with my burgeoning tan. Available from NARS in full size for $25.

Milani Baked Blush No. 5 Luminoso I finally gave in after watching six million Youtube videos from across the pond in which the vloggers go on and on about this US drugstore brand blush.  Since what was an ordeal for them is a five minute walk to CVS for me, I grabbed it with some ExtraCare Bucks.  Even after all the raves, I'm stunned at how awesome this product is. The perfect pinky peach to add a touch of color to summer skin, it applies so smoothly that it's hard to believe this is a drugstore powder. The packaging is unnecessarily bulky and it comes with a shitty little brush, but who cares when a blush this good and this inexpensive shows up? Not this girl. Available at CVS for $9.29

I hope you all have an excellent weekend and you'll be hearing from the East Coast on Monday!
