July Favorites 2018

I am back with July favorites.  Check out last month’s favorites post if you hadn’t seen it already!

Hunter Boots

Hunter Women's Original Tall Rain Boots

July is a very rainy time in South Korea. I could not have survived it without these boots. They are very sturdy and they protected my feet and ankles of my pants from getting wet. I like this dark color. It goes with everything but still doesn’t feel as “heavy” as jet black. Perfect for rainy summer day mood.

Blue Converse Sneakers

Remember these from this post? When It doesn’t rain, I wear these. They are perfect for summer and they go with pretty much anything I’d wear in the summer, so I just love these so much. You can tell that it’s been worn many times. I feel like that adds character to the shoes.

Light Wash Jeans

This summer has been very hot (and I normally don’t get hot!) and while I would love to wear shorts all the times, I sometimes wear pants, especially when I’m expecting to stay at a strongly air-conditioned place for a extended period of time. Light wash jeans look icy, so they are visually cooler. They are still jeans so it’s easy to style them.

Lush Tea Tree Toner

My skin likes to act up, especially in summer. With this Tea Tree Toner from Lush, I had a lot less breakouts than before as tea tree has that effect. I just spray it on my face after washing my face. I follow up with Placentor Vegetal creme to moisturize, which has also helped my skin.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer

Remember when this was really popular on YouTube? I was using a different bronzer then, but I like this one better. I can see why everyone was crazy about them. They are so versatile and high quality. The chocolate smell is just a bonus.

Those were my July favorites. What were your favorites this month?


June Favorites 2018

June was a great month for me. I found lots of exciting new things. I started doing things that made me happy. So here are my June favorites.

Lush Solid Perfume Sikkim Girls

Lush Solid Perfume Sikkim Girls

Sikkim Girls is a warm and exotic floral scent with the veiled allure of jasmine. We capture the exotic heat of Darjeeling, India in clouds of tuberose and frangipani along with the overt sensuality of jasmine, creating a subtly seductive fragrance with a hint of ‘come hither’. If you love sensual, alluring floral fragrances, this is the one for you.

The scent is very smooth and deep and rich floral. It is heavier than light so I think it’s more suitable for fall than summer but I wear it now anyway because I love it very much. I prefer solid perfumes because I don’t like spraying things.

Aromatica Tinted Sunscreen

Aromatica Tinted Sun Cream SPF30/PA++

I don’t use it a primary sunscreen because I like to apply a lot of it and this is tinted so I can’t use too much. However I love having a good extra layer of protection that can double as foundation. It makes my face brighter without making my face look unnaturally light.

Yves Saint Laurent Verni A Levre #8

Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain

It is a bright orange color perfect for summer. Its texture is so jelly-like in a good way, not in a hair stuck to your lips kind of bad way.

Mala Xiang Guo

Mala xiang guo is mouth-numbingly spicy stir fry. It is so yummy and I am obsessed. I love spices but mala is on another level. It is very hot so it’s not for everyone and it is definitely an acquired taste but I’m hooked.

Ocean’s 8

Ocean's 8

I never thought I’d see Riri and Awkwafina in the same film. AND it has Anne Hathaway and Cate Blanchett AND Sarah Paulson in it? There is no way I wouldn’t love this movie. It kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time.
