Monthly Faves: July 2013

Hello loves! Whew, this week has been a little on the hectic side for me. I feel like I have a lot going on and I have been running around like crazy. I am ready for this week to be over to be honest, ready for a slow down. My August motivation has kicked in, I did a pump and bootcamp class tonight after work. It felt good! I am excited to see how I feel come the end of this month. 

I can't believe July is already over, this year is seriously flying by. It's time for my July faves. These are things I've either discovered in the last month and love or just found myself reaching for often. Enjoy!

First up, non beauty faves:
-I have fallen in love with Brandon & Leah this month. I bought their newly released EP and can't get enough of it. Brandon is Bruce Jenner's son, step bro to the Kardashians, and Leah is his wife. I LOVE her voice and their music style. Check them out!
-One of my fave shows is back on and I can't get enough. As you know, I <3 Giuliana Rancic.  I love G&B because they are seriously the cutest couple ever and they inspire me, I love the way they love each other, their goofy relationship is adorable and reminds me of my hubby and I. 
-Um, can we just take a minute to talk about Vanilla Chex. I bought it recently and oh my gosh, yum! It taste like vanilla cake to me, so you can't go wrong with that! There is a chocolate one too I will have to try out next. Anyone tried it?

Beauty faves time:
-I've been talking about Essie Mint Candy Apple lately. I bought it, used it and loved it. Its such a vibrant and perfect minty blue-green shade. I think it's perfect for summer!
-I have found myself using this Victoria Secret Sheer Love fragrance mist almost everyday, it smells SOOOOOO good. So fresh and feminine. VS describes the scent as "White Cotton & Pink Lily" It's one I'm definitely going to have to repurchase. 
-I bought Boots Expert Sensitive Toner at Target recently and it's such a great product. It has no harsh scent to it, which I love. The main reason I bought it is because I had been using an astringent that was so strong smelling and I felt like it was burning my face. This stuff is gentle and wipes off that little bit of excess dirt/makeup that washing your face didn't remove. I'm using it morning and night. Plus, it's under $5. Score. 
-NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair. Holy moly this stuff rocks. To me, this gloss is the perfect consistency. It's not overly thick or sticky, which always ends up making me hate a gloss. Hey, this one's under $5 too!

There's my faves for the month of July! I'm off to bed :)
