July Favorites 2014

Happy Monday everyone! Since a lot of people will do a blogpost on their favorite items and products from a certain month, I thought I would try it too! Also, it has been too rainy and cloudy and just plain icky outside to do outfit posts. Really starting to wonder why Florida is called the Sunshine State. 

Thank you for all the nice comments on my last post, by the way. 

But I would just like to share with you some of my favorite items that I've been using a lot. Includes beauty products, clothes and accessories. 

1. Blue Summer Dress


A couple of months ago, I picked up this dress at Aeropostale, because it was on sale for 20 something dollars, and it was normally around 40 something. I thought, woah, great deal, and super cute, I guess I have to try it on. The dress was literally calling my name. Both my friend and I tried it on, but I found I liked it better than she did. I'm so glad I picked it up. It's the perfect summer dress! It's light and comfy, and can be anywhere from casual to fancy, depending on how you dress it up. I kept trying to make an outfit post on this dress, but I was never able to. This dress I think is in the clearance section now, so it's still available. Next time I wear it, I'll do an outfit post on it so you can see it all dressed up with accessories! 

2. Black Reef Flip Flops


I have literally had these flip flops for now three summers, and they still fit. They are so comfy, and are my go to flip flops for certain casual outfits. You may have seen them in this post. But these are classic Reef flip flops, and I highly recommend you go buy yourselves a pair! They are high quality, and are a little expensive, like $30-40, but it is all worth it! I will probably get myself a new pair of these once they're finally worn out, or I grow out of them. 

3. Aerpostale Khaki Shorts


Lets just say that I freaking love these shorts. I had wanted a pair of khaki shorts for a long time, so when I went to the mall with my mom a few months ago and saw these, I just had to try them on. They are very comfy and fit so well! I wear them a lot, and are one of my go to pair of shorts. The best thing is how well they wash. Very durable, since I've washed them many, many times. If you don't have a pair of khaki shorts, I recommend you go pick yourself up a pair, where ever you get them. (they're probably cheaper at target or old navy to be perfectly honest) Also, these shorts were in one of my previous posts here. 

4. Wet Seal Statement Necklace 


I got this necklace at Wet Seal a few months ago, actually on the same day I got those khaki shorts. I wear it with so many outfits, because it's black and simple, and really makes a statement in a lot of the outfits I wear. I thought about wearing it with the outfit in my last post, but it didn't really work well with that particular outfit. I really love this necklace though. I really love statement pieces. You can see it another earlier post here.

5. Turquoise Sunglasses


These were actually a birthday present from my mom, so I really don't know where they're from. But I went on vacation to Key West almost a month ago, and sunglasses were my best friend there, so these were great to have. Also, almost all the clothes I own are that color, or go well with that color, so having them work out, because they match almost everything. 

6. XOXO LUV body spray


This was another birthday present from my best friend, and I think it's from Bealls. I use it a lot, I love the fresh, girly scent it gives off, and it's not too strong like the majority of perfumes that I have tried. 

7. Smash Box Lipgloss


I got a pack of five smashbox lipglosses last Christmas from a relative, but this one is my favorite out of the five. I love the brand so much! It's good quality, and it's not as sticky as lots of other lipglosses. No hair sticks to my lips, and if you wear lipgloss, you know about that bother. Also, you don't need much to get a good coat that's shiny and colored. It's a little expensive, but well worth the price! Seen in my post about the natural look here. 

8. Secret Clear Gel Deodorant 


I while back, I had a problem of white streaks on my dark clothing, which are a pain to get out! I saw this in the store whilst shopping, and decided to try it. So far, it has been a success. No more white marks on my black clothes! Definitely recommend trying this product. There are also many good smelling scents. 

9. L'oreal Paris Voluminous Original Mascara


Love this mascara! Use it almost every single time I use mascara! It lasts, and when I put it on it's very easy to get dark even coats on. It does clump if you don't wipe of excess off while taking it out, but that's not too much to do. I have been using it for awhile, and it works the best out of all my mascaras. Seen it my post about the natural look here. 

10. Eco Tools Make up Brush


This brush was part of a set of five make up brushes I got for my birthday. They're not very expensive, and this brushs works fantastic for my powder and blush! Good coverage! 

11. Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish


This was another birthday present from one of my best friends, and it is literally my favorite shade of nail polish. You only need two coats for an opaque finish. But make sure to put some top coat on it, because it will chip after a couple of days. I use this color for my nails more than any other color.

Just wanted to share these products with you all, to kick off the week. Hopefully it gets less icky outside so I can start taking pictures for some outfit posts, because I have some super cute outfits I would like to share with you all! Have a great day everyone!
