May 2021 Favorites

Way back in OG Youtube days, monthly favorites videos were some of my favorite things to watch. I just loved watching what other people were loving, and it honestly gave me so many of my favorite products in my teen years. Unlike those early youtubers though, I wouldn’t expect a new favorites post from me every single month. I just feel like it takes at least two months for me to decide if I like something, and even longer for it to become a “favorite”. So these posts will probably pop up more as we change seasons, but you know, still going to call this a monthly favorites. Let’s get right into it!

  1. Sweet by Ellis Brooklyn

So in my last fragrance post, I talked about Ellis Brooklyn’s Bee perfume, and this past month I’ve been loving “Sweet”. So normally my fragrance tastes are far from anything that can be deemed smelling like candy (which one of my friends claims it kinda smells like Swedish fish), but I think this is more of a grown up kind of sweet. With notes of pear, bergamot, violet, as well as white amber and cashmere, it’s just subtle and light enough to get noticed and perfect for the summer season.

2. Megababe Beachy Pits Deodorant

If like me, you loving using natural deodorant but the “natural” scents don’t always work for you (lavender smell does not work in my underarm region), then this is the deodorant for you. It’s baking soda and aluminum free, using sage and green tea to prevent odor causing bacteria from forming.It’s a light scent, but perfect for summer.

3. Megababe Space Bar Charcoal Bar

So here in Texas, it gets HOT in summer, which means that I sweat A LOT, so sometimes you need something a little extra down there. Enter this soap bar, it has glycolic acid, tea tree oil and charcoal. As a bit of a warning though, don’t leave this bar in the shower because it will dissolve fast.

4. Lancome L’absolu Mademoiselle Shine Lipstick in “Mademoiselle Plays”

With the vaccine rollout and mask mandates being lifted, it’s finally time to showoff lipstick again and I have been absolutely loving this one. The formula is amazing, giving you hydration and pigmentation (think lipstick/lip balm hybrid), and it smells divine! I love this shade just because it’s the perfect peachy nude for summer with little flecks of gold inside.

5. Nisolo Huarache Sandals in Almond

What my boyfriend has deemed my “farmer’s market mom shoes”, these are honestly my favorite splurge purchase I’ve recently made. They’re honestly super comfortable (like enough I wear them to work pretty often), but cute enough that I also wear them everywhere else in my life (aka brunch, because that’s all I have going for me currently as a social life). A great thing I love about this brand that makes the price tag worth it is that they’re extremely socially conscious, with the shoes being handmade in Peru where they pay higher than an actual living wage (100% Living Wage) and have also worked towards reducing their impact on the world (0% Net Carbon).

I’m so sorry about missing the post last week, life just got absolutely insane and to be honest, I just didn’t have time to finish working on it. However, I promise I’ll do better in the future, so make sure to check back every Friday for a new post. My socials are linked if you want to give me a follow. Have an amazing week!
