June 2014 Favorites

June 2014 Favorites

Oh Man! Another month has come and gone! I swear June flew by!! && I am not going to lie I am kind of thrilled,
living in AZ brings the heat and I am so ready for the heat to be over ... // I know I should be used to it // 

Favorite Products // Fashion 

1. I am loving Crochet anything especially tops 1.) because they are flowy and breath
    && 2.) because it can double as a swim cover. You can find the Black one here // the white one here

2. Rainbow Aviators .... #enoughsaid .** I have heard there is a Ray-Band outlet! where is it?**

3. Sandals especially sparkly ones! They are comfy and can add a little extra to ANY outfit! A summer must. 

4. Naked Flushed Pallet  -- In the summer I refuse to put so many layers on my face, its too hot for that ish. 
    So this way you get Blush, Bronze, and highlight all in one. 

5. EOS! My lips get dried all year long so I love keeping some type of chap stick on hand and this        
   "Mint" flavored  EOS is Amazeballs. 

6. NYX butter lipsticks are perfect for the summer they go on so smooth and the color pull off 
  is awesome, plus its not to thick and is long-lasting. 

7. This was my "BIG" purchase at the beginning of the month. With the wedding coming up in 8 months I want to 
    have flawless skin, so I need to start now! I heard amazing reviews for this Michael Todd Bi Light-- but it was 
    always to pricey for my budget -- However they had it on Groupon for like 50% off. I instantly had to have it! 
    And its AMAZING! I can already notice a huge difference! I am thinking about doing a review on it, 
    so let me know if you like to hear more about this product.

8. Nars Toner! Oh my face has been loving the moisture from this, especially after being in the hot sun!
    It has calmed the redness in my face as well as taking care of my dry patches. 

9. ST Tropez Self tanner is my go to tanner! I love this stuff I did a haul for this about a year ago, 
   and I am still in  love with it! I have used it more this month to give my skin more of bronze glow.
   ---- you can also buy this at Sephora and St. Tropez website, if you didnt want to order from theHut.com

Favorite People! 

Charity Vance! --- Her voice is AMAZING! I literally listen to her on repeat! You have to listen 
to her Collabe she did with Summer//Summer time Sadness < --- Its the shit!

Casey Holmes- I am a beauty guru Junky! I Have been obsessed with watching Casey!
 She is Amazing and I can not stop watching her ... in a non-stalker way lol.

Pretty in Paradise

 Can we first take a moment to appreciate this adorable Rebecca Minkoff Bag! Oh it makes me giddy.


NYX butter gloss -- I was super excited about receiving this in my bag! I'm a NYX freak &&
                                this product is awesome // not to mention the colors are Gorgeous!
                                 (( I received the color Eclair)) -- P.s. this was a FULL product

Carols Daughter -- I have never heard of this cream before, so I was really excited to try it!
Styling Cream        It is an Anti-breakage // Anti-frizz styling cream && so far so good.

Nicka K New York -- Even though I have never heard of this brand, if you give me bright 
                                    ass blue shimmery eyeliner, you best believe I am going to love it! 
                                    as most of you know, I am in an anti black mode for Summer, we decided 
                                    we needed a break till winter. Not to mention this is a  FULL size product!

OFRA Eye Pencil --   I have been using the benefits Gimme Brow, &&
                                    this + that = Damn Good Brows!.... && another FULL size product.

RealTree Perfume --This is a very sweet, floral Perfume! with scents like pomegranate, persimmon,
                                   blended with  lotus blossom, amber and violets! Its to die for.


Overall Ipsy has blown me away, I actually canceled my Birchbox subscription after having them for 18 months. After receiving both of them Birchbox was just not doing it for me anymore! Even though I still love Birchbox, they were fantastic! Ipsy was just giving me my Bang for my Buck. 

**for those who are new to monthly subscription services - Ipsy is only 10$ a month **

NARS Beauty Bar

Over the Weekend 4 girlfriends and I were lucky enough to enjoy a one of a kind Nars 
Beauty Bar Make Up Party!! I don't know if it was my 2 glasses of champagne but 
I felt like I was on a beauty high all day long, it was freaking awesome!
 We were able to work with  Raquel Grijalva, a Nars Stylist who travels all over, 
working with models on the runway to the stars on the red carpet! She informed us 
 about this amazing brand and taught us all of her techniques! 
 We kicked off the Party with Skin Care! From toning to priming! Already just from the toner, I could see a significant difference the redness in my skin was already eased! By the end of the routine we all could not stop touching our faces! It literally felt like velvet!
Next it was time to conceal! I am a hardcore lover of full coverage foundation! Till I tried NARS tinted moisturizer.... HOLLY COW! It is like magic! I had full coverage without the heaviness of 
normal full coverage foundation! One of my biggest questions I had was contouring! And with the easy 2 in 1 contour blush kit! It was so easy and was so much simpler then I thought it was!
Look out Kim Kardashian there is a new easier way to get photo ready contouring!

Next it was all about COLOR! from the NARS Orgasm blush, to the Bold Blue eyeliner!
Us girls looked and felt incredible!! We learned so much and left with a whole new love 
for color! I am a black eyeliner junkie, && I can honestly say I have yet to wear it since 
our fabulous makeup party! Bye bye Black Hello blue, purple, and green! 


  Thank you so so much to NARS, MeMe and Raquel for this amazing afternoon! 
We had a blast and learned so many new things! It was an amazing opportunity && a day we will never forget!!
