Can you believe that it is already July?! Very soon I’ll be back in school for my last semester. I’ve been so relaxed with just having to work that I don’t want it to end. This month had a couple of exciting changes. I got bangs which I love. I pretty much had bangs all growing up and I wanted a hair change without going shorter. In the same week, I also got a Hamster. I have a female long haired Syrian hamster and her name is Zoidy. Zoidy is an unusual name that most people are confused by. Honestly, it’s because I wanted to name my hamster after Zoidberg from Futurama because I love that character. So I shortened it with just Zoidy. I love her so much and she’s just now getting comfortable with me holding her. She loves to explore and could probably spend hours in her ball if possible. I’m also going to be changing my Saturday posting day to Sunday because I rarely work Sundays. Anyway, I don’t have a whole lot but let’s talk about my favorites this month.
Yes to Tomatoes Detox Charcoal Wipes- These wipes smell so good. They kind of smell like a light cologne. Also, the color of these wipes is black instead of the usual white. They aren’t the best probably if you have sensitive skin but I still love them. I got this at Target for $6.
L’Oreal Red Algae Pure-Clay Mask- I have been wanting to try these masks forever. This is the exfoliating and refining mask. I really like how soft my skin feels after I use it. My skin feels soft and looks healthy. I also got this at Target for $10.
NYX Ultimate Palette in Warm Neutrals- There aren’t a lot of warm colors in my makeup collection and I have been wanting some new shadows to play with. These eyeshadows are really easy to work with and really pigmented. I will for sure do a whole post for this soon. I just want to play around with it so far. I got this at Ulta for $18.
Favorite Show- American Dad. I know that is so random. I recently started it and it was so funny that I got hooked.
Favorite Song- Stay by Zedd and Alessia Cara. Please leave me music suggestions! I need some new stuff to listen to.

*sorry for no pictures this month*
Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon- This was one of the Sephora birthday gifts this year so it’s a pretty small size. I have been loving this product, though. It glides on so easily and is really easy to fix if mistakes are made. The full size is $25 and I might actually purchase the full size. This eyeliner comes in a lot of different colors and you can check it out here.
Real Techniques Makeup Sponge- I am on a bit of a small budget and I just can’t bring myself to spend $20 on the beauty blender. When I do get to splurge and buy a high-end product, I don’t want it to be a beauty sponge. There’s some debate on whether this sponge is actually a dupe for the beauty blender. Personally, I think the real techniques sponge applies my makeup very well. One of these days I am going to try the beauty blender so I can see the real deal. For now, this $6 sponge will work for me.
Peaches and Nectarines- I love summer because these stone fruits are my favorite fruits of all time. I eat one every single day. They are the most perfect fruit in the world. Fall is another amazing season but I will be sad to see stone fruits go.
Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara- I picked this mascara up because I’ve heard it’s a dupe for the better than sex mascara. I have no idea if that is true. Eventually, I’ll get the too faced one and pit them against each other. For right now I really like this mascara. The wand is a bit big but I like how it applies to my lashes.
Favorite Song- Closer by The Chainsmokers and Halsey (Although the VMA performance was not very good.)
Favorite Show- Bob’s Burgers. I already love this show but have been watching it again.
Grav3yard Girl Tarte Swamp Queen Palette- I have been watching Bunny on YouTube for years and I was very excited to get my hands on this. It comes with 9 eyeshadows, a blush, a bronzer, and a highlight. I have been reaching for this pretty much everytime I do my makeup. On Tuesday I plan on doing an actual post about this so stay tuned for that.
Yes Please by Amy Poehler- Amy Poehler is someone that I look up to so much! Parks and recreation is my favorite show of all time. She is also probably my favorite comedian. Her style of writing is exactly the type of writing I like. It’s very casual like she’s having an actual conversation with the reader and of course lots of humor. I have so many books that I’m trying to read right now.
Fortune Cookie Soap- I received this soap from a friend for my birthday which is awesome because I’ve been wanting to try this out for a while. I’m not sure which scent this is but it smells like strawberries to me. This is one of those companies that makes their products with all natural ingredients. I will definitely be ordering from them again. If you want to check them out you can click here.
Amazon Fire Tablet- I received this for my birthday as well and I love it. It’s so nice and small which means it’s easy to lay in bed with. I’ve completely stopped watching Netflix on my computer and only watch it on my tablet now. This cost around $50 and you can check it out on Amazon.
New Shoes- I needed some yellow shoes because I’m a bridesmaid for a best friends wedding and I found these at payless. They were around $35 and I love them. There’s not much else to say about these.
Favorite Show- Stranger Things: You need to watch this show! It is on Netflix and it is amazing. There are only 8 episodes right now and I am so sad that we have to wait a year for the next season. There is also all kinds of 80’s awesomeness happening in this show.
Favorite Song- Don’t Mind by Kent Jones
I got this shirt at forever 21 for around $12 I think. It kind of looks like a crop top in this picture but it is longer. I’m not really into crop tops so I like the length of it. I unfortunately couldn’t find it on their website to put a link.
My arrow bracelet- This bracelet stands for “press forward with a steadfastness in christ” and I love that! I also really like that it’s adjustable because I have the tiniest wrists in the world. I got this at deseret book for $7
My Warby Parker glasses- If you haven’t checked out warby parker then you need to. They sell glasses and each pair is only $95. You get to pick out 5 frames and they send them to you for a home try on for free! Once you find the pair you like then you just order them with your prescription. The best part? For every pair bought a pair gets donated. Go check them out!
Biore baking soda cleansing scrub- I’m sure you’ve heard about this because I keep hearing about it. This is a powder face wash that you add a little bit of water to and then wash your face with it. The powder also dissolves so you don’t over scrub. Biore says this is really good for combination skin, my skin type, and I love it! It feels so nice on my face and kind of feels like it has some skin tightening ability.
Fuller house- Yeah I had doubts about this show and I was so wrong. This show is so great! I’m so sad that there’s only one season. I can’t wait for the next season. Go watch it!
