Happy first of June! ColourPop has stole the show this month and I've been crazy about all of the products I purchased. I have a full video Haul + Review as well as a blog post featuring all of the items I have purchased so far and there is more to come. I have fewer beauty favorites this month don't worry though I've got lots of lifestyle goodies to share with you ;)
Let's start first with the makeup favorites :) this month I have so many ColourPop favorites I could not pick just one, but being the lip junkie that I am, I did throw in my favorite lip combo of the month. Which starts with ColourPop Lip Liner in Fern topped off with an unlikely companion, ColourPop Lippie Stick in Frida. I have said it before and I'll say it again... I LOVE mixing and matching my lip colors to create fun unique costume shades and this combo has been an amazing find for me!
You know those t-shirts that say "All I Need is Coffee & Mascara"? I need one of those in my life BUT I need it to say "All I Need is Coffee, Mascara, Lipstick, Blush, Eyeshadow..." no but really as a redhead I can NOT put together any makeup look without mascara unless I want to look like a cupcake without the frosting, I mean what's the point right? ;) This Butter London Iconoclast Mega Volume Mascara looks amazing on it's own but is killer with some false eyelashes (I love Adrell Demi 120 lashes cut in half). This mascara added amazing length, lasts all day, and makes my lashes look thick and full.
Bronzer for pale gals like me is like finding a four leaf clover in a desert. It's a rare thing and if/when you find it you best hold on! Leighannsays used to use this bronzer a while back and I'm finally trying it out! Why did I wait so long when I know everything Leighann mentions is a must try? I don't know but I'm using it now and it's rocking my world! While it's matte it is not dull in any way. This bronzer warms up the skin so beautifully and wearing perfectly throughout the day! I love to use this to warm up my skin and apply it to the outer parts of the face with a big fluffy brush. This is going to be perfect for spring and with summer coming up I can't wait to see how this looks on already sun-kissed skin.

Moving right along to my song favorite of the month. Mary Lambert - Secrets
(http://bit.ly/1tLPa17). This song speaks to my soul. I've got one more thing to say about this song; do not waste any more time trying to be anyone else but yourself! Oh and don't ever grow up if you don't want to ;)
Many of you might know that Mad Men ended this month and seriously I don't think I'm over this yet! I like to think Mad Men got me through college in some ways. Alex and I spent hours binge watching Mad Men on Netflix and it has been a part of my Sunday nights since about 2010 when I started watching, I was a little late to the game but I was sure there to cross the finish line!
I have five movie favorites this month. Surprisingly I went to the movies four times this month and it was wonderful!
My first movie favorite is a movie that was made in 2007 called Man From Earth. This movie was so great! It was simple, thoughtful, and captivating. It's about a college professor who has been alive for 14,000 years. Due to the fact that he does not age, he must move every ten years before those around him start to ask questions. However this time he decides to tell his colleagues. The movie develops as his intelligent professor colleagues start to ask him about his life. There are some interesting discoveries as the main character John tells the tales of his life as he can remember it.
The other three movies that I saw in theaters were Pitch Perfect 2, Age of Adeline, and Avengers Age of Ultron. I have this strange obsession with watching people dance and I love to hear people sing and Pitch Perfect 2 was funny and included both singing and dancing! Age of Adeline was not as great as I was hoping. Blake Lively is gorgeous and performs beautifully however there was a little more narration than I would have preferred. As for Avengers Age of Ultron, it was good and exactly what I expected. It had lots of action and the humor which is one of my favorite parts of the Avengers movies was spot on!
Thank you so much for all of your support, and as always YOU are my most favorite for this month and all month!
