Hey July! June Favorites & Loves

I don’t know about you, but June flew by way too fast. The weather got beautiful, I got to spend so much time outside soaking up the sun, and best of all, got to visit Disney World! Posts about my trip are coming soon, but first, I need to share my June favorites!

I love getting to wrap up my month and think about everything good that came my way. Getting to reflect makes me all the more grateful, and this month is no different! I had so many lovely things happen, and I have so many new products to share that I have fallen in love with!

Lifestyle June Favorites

I know that I’ve mentioned it before, but a good portable charger goes a really long way. I took this one to Disney with me, and didn’t have to charge it up ONCE! I charged it before I left, and there is STILL a charge left on it. Amazing! These are serious lifesavers, even to keep in your everyday bag. I wouldn’t leave home without one!

Ah, an item I didn’t think that I would really ever need, but now do! Since Apple decided to ditch the headphone jack on my phone (why? Not quite sure.) I have been loving this little guy so I can charge my phone while also playing music in my car! They’re on the inexpensive side too, which makes it all the more worth it!

Beauty June Favorites

Ah, these sprays make a reappearance. After my trip to Florida, my skin was DEAD and not having it. Between the sun, the layering of sunscreen day after day, and the lack of moisturizer, my skin was in a rut. These sprays CONTINUE to be the best thing that has ever happened to my skin.

These glosses are my entire life at this point. While my skin needed a serious pick-me-up, so did my lips. They were pretty much tortured with days upon days of matte lipsticks, sun, heat, and more. When I got home, I was looking at a sad state of affairds.

The strange thing about these glosses is that I actually prefer to wear these to bed. They are really gorgeous if you’re into wearing glosses (I’m not a big gloss girl!) but I like to let these work their magic while I’m sleeping. Somehow, someway, these manage to totally resurface my lips while I’m sleeping, leaving me with a great little canvas to use in the morning. I’m someone who likes to wear a matte lip on the daily, so it helps a ton!

I. Live. For. My. Lay and Go Cosmo!!  These bags are the coolest and easiest way to pack up your cosmetics when they’re on the go. My mother got me one for Christmas and I have loved it for toting my cosmetics and small skincare bottles. The bags are soft and cushioned and then cinch up to keep everything contained.

Travel July Favorites

In honor of my recent travel, I decided to share my favorites that got me through those treacherous hours at the airport! I’ll likely be sharing my flight anxiety tips and tricks soon (I HATE flying!) but these items definitely helped to make me a little more comfortable.This Pusheen Travel Pillow  net me so many compliments while I was walking the terminal! It is hands down the best travel pillow I have ever owned, the fabric is soft, and the pillow itself isn’t overly firm to the point where you feel low key paralyzed. This also fit through the handle on my backpack perfectly, so I was pretty hands free for the entire journey.

Ah, the return of the S’well bottle. I have put these in many of my previous favorites because I am obsessed with staying hydrated! I brought my (empty) bottle through security, filled up once I was finished with the TSA and ta-da! Saved about $4 for a plastic bottle of water on the plane! I hate paying the jacked up prices on a flight, and this is a good way to get ahead of the swing, and it is always nice to have a bottle with you while you travel! It is pretty easy to not drink enough fluids while you travel, leaving you feeling pretty gross. So, bring your own along, and say money AND stress!

I am so happy that when I traveled that I downsized my large wallet into a small Vera Zip Wallet. I was able to keep everything I needed handy, without worrying about my somewhat expensive wallet being lost, dirty, or stolen. It fit all my cards, has a window for your I.D. and can easily be slipped in just about any bag. Love!

That’s all I have for my June favorites this month! What did you fall in love with this month? Anything incredible you found!? Let me know in the comment section below. I love to try new things, and would love to see if your favorites could become mine too!

Happy 4th of July to you and yours!
