May 2015 Favorites


We're keeping things simple with this month's favorites as I've been quite sick this week and couldn't get around to filming an actual video. Not to worry though as there are still quite a few products to talk about!

You all are well aware of my complete obsession with my Erin Condren Life Planner, but I recently got a new cover in the pattern "Watercolor Palette" that I've wanted as soon as it was released. I love the fact that you can change the covers so it's like a brand new planner! The 2015/2016 planners are set to launch in a few weeks and I am beyond excited to see the new layout. 

I recently featured my JORD Fieldcrest watch in a blog post, but I still can't get over how amazing it is. I rave on and on about it in that post so I won't ramble on here, but it's incredibly lightweight, minimalist, and just my style. I've also been completely obsessed with my new vlogging camera I got a few weeks ago. It's the Canon G7X and has made vlogging not only easier, but also prettier. The camera has a screen that flips up that makes it easy to see yourself as you vlog and the quality is fantastic. I think I might want to start doing weekly vlogs instead of just weekend ones, but this week's illness put the kibosh in that until next week. 

On to the beauty bits now. The beauty box ChrissyLilly sent me has been so well received that a lot of the products found their way into my favorites this month. Soap and Glory's Solar Powder is just as amazing as I thought it would be for someone who is fairly pale and not the best at contouring and bronzing. I'm also a sucker for vintage packaging. ChrissyLilly couldn't have been more right about the Max Factor X Blush in "Seductive Pink." The pigmentation is amazing and it's the perfect classic pink shade. Plus it lasts ages!

The obsession for pink nail polish took over this month. I've never been a pink polish girl, but I rarely wore anything else on my nails this month. My favorite has been butterLONDON's "Shop Girl". It's a soft beige creme color that looks so delicate on the nails while not being too in your face. My nail polish tends to chip like crazy, but this formula has some serious staying power.

I feel like I'm beating a dead horse constantly talking about the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue like I have and I promise to stop (eventually). It's just that good. From the soft, whipped consistency to the longevity of coverage, I'm sold and proud to constantly sing its praises. 

My final favorite of the month has to be the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish. I think I've finally gotten out of my boring, flat hair rut and have found a lot of good products to make my hair do something. I love how this product smells and makes my hair just messy enough. Well done Bumble and Bumble.

What have your favorite products been for May?

xoxo Kayla
