My May Favorites! Beauty, Fashion & Random!


Hi Everyone! Happy June 1st!!!

Fun Fact: In Poland today is Children's Day! Yay! Happy Children's Day to you all :-)

Anyway... May came and went and I wanted to share all the beauty products I have been loving throughout this past month with you guys! So let's get into it!

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara! 


I love love love this mascara. It's $10 for a tiny tube yet it's a little miracle worker and slowly becoming one of my holy grail products! The brush is supper small which makes getting all your lashes a breeze, it lengthens nicely, separates, and most importantly DOES NOT SMUDGE!!! I love the look of mascara on the lower lashes but can't stand smudging or flaking and this mascara lives up to the hype and meets all my expectations. It looks amazing and stays on all day :-D You can't ask for anything more! Highly recommend this product if you have problems with smudging or applying mascara to your lower lash-line!

Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses! 

I love my classic Ray Bans! It's been really sunny in NYC for the past few weeks and I have been reaching for my Ray Bans a lot :-) "Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say it's alright" I love the way Aviators compliment my rounder face shape + they look cool and protect my eyes so I don't have to squint when walking down the street! Aviators are my favorite style of sunglasses and it might be because of my tiny obsession with movies such as Top Gun! What style is your favorite?

Mac Studio Finish Concealer!

It's like a magic pot! I have been wearing less makeup (OK, I admit it... almost none, but hey that's not a bad thing!) and instead I have been using the MAC concealer to cover up any dark spots, and blemishes. A plus is that it has SPF 35, which is great because hyper-pigmentation and acne scars seem to get darker in the sun. This concealer has a great consistency, it's not too liquid-y or too cake-y, in the words of Goldilocks "It's just right" It covers everything I need perfectly and it blends in beautifully so it doesn't seem as if I'm wearing any makeup, so Shhh... it'll be our little secret! This concealer is a cult favorite product and is used by many makeup artists with good reason: it does the job!
Dexter!


I love T.V shows, more so than movies. I don't know about you but when I like something I don't want it to end. So the longer the T.V show is the better :-D I really get attached to the characters and the story-line so I want it to continue for as long as possible. I'm the same with books, I love series such as Harry Potter (I cried when I finished the last book because the ending was touching but also for the fact that it was the end of one of the best stories ever!) This month I have discovered Dexter. I knew the T.V show existed for years but for some reason never bothered to watch it. Thanks to Sawyer Hartman and his recent Dexter video I decided to give it another shot! It started off slow and I was about to quit watching it but I stuck with it and yup, you guessed it, I was sucked in & now I'm hooked! I just started season 6... I know, I know, that's a lot of hours spent watching my computer screen, but I can't help it because I have an addictive personality (ha-ha, great excuse right? No but really, It's a fantastic show!) If you like crime shows such as CSI, or Criminal Minds, you will love Dexter! In a snapshot it's about a serial killer who works with the police (calls himself "the lab geek") and kills murderers!

Bloodline Novels!


The new Bloodline novels by Richelle Mead are fantastic!! There are 3 out so far (Bloodlines, The Golden Lily, The Indigo Spell) and I'm eagerly awaiting the 4th (The Fiery Heart) :-) See! I told you I loved series! If you were a fan of the Vampire Academy books (or love anything vampire related) you need to read this spin off version told from Sydney's (the Alchemist's) point of view! It's a great mystery/science fiction/romance series and I highly recommend it, but be warned... It's an addictive read! What are you currently reading?
YSL Rouge Volupte #13 Peach Passion!


Such a gorgeous coral-y peach-y pink, perfect for the spring and summer! The formulation is to die for: extremely smooth, very pigmented, and the staying power is impressive. The packaging is stunning and all in all it's my favorite luxury lipstick thus far! Check it out next time your at a beauty store but be prepared to fall in love :-) I have been reaching for this shade almost everyday and I just can't get enough. I feel as if it brightens up my face, it looks great on, the shade compliments my skin tone, and it feels fantastic on the lips! I finally understand all the hype that surrounds the YSL lipsticks :-) What lipstick did you use today? 

I hope you enjoyed reading about what I was loving in May!
