My July Favorites!!

I don't have a ton of favorites this month, but I have truly loved all of these products.  Some are lifestyle or fashion products, but I know a lot of people like to hear about those, so I included them.

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation - I found this foundation sometime last year, and I love it just as much now as I did then.  I like to wear it on extra long days or days that I will be outside in the hot weather.  It absolutely doesn't budge.  I can't even sweat it off!!  It gives me a satin/natural finish.  It blends easily, and requires no touch ups!  I haven't found a better foundation!!

This pic was taken on Saturday.  My mom and I went out of state to a concert.  I applied this foundation at 9:30 a.m.  This picture was taken around 4:30 p.m., and at 1:30 a.m. it still looked the same, with NO touch ups and NO primer!!

Apple Cider Vinegar - Like most of us, I have heard a lot of good things about apple cider vinegar, though I had never tried it.  It is good for so many things like detoxing the body, as a hair and face product or as a cleaning product.  I didn't take it for 2 days, because I went out of town, and it made a HUGE difference!!  I will do a post soon about my experience, and all of it's benefits!

Sperry Parrotfish Sandals - This is was my first pair of anything Sperry.  In fact, I didn't even realize that they made sandals.  This pair is very casual, they go with most anything, and they are soooo comfortable.  I can be on my feet for hours with no problems at all!  My mom usually can't wear sandals with a thong.  She has the same pair, and loves them as well!  I was really surprised by these.  I will definitely buy more next summer!

Jennifer Lopez Handbag - Gloria - If you read my blog (especially lately), you would know that I have developed a love for all things J Lo.  Her clothes, handbags, and perfumes are my favorite, but she also has beautiful home goods and shoes.  This is my latest J Lo item, and I love it!!  I fell in love with it immediately.  It has an embossed snake skin look, with a silver chain that lines the sides.  This bag is actually a knock off of a Stella Me Cartney bag called Falabella.  That handbag has been carried by many celebrities including J Lo, Kate Hudson, and Kim Kardashian.  So, how great is she that she made a similar style that the rest of us can get our hands on??  Not only is it stylish, but it is comfortable to wear.  I am very picky with things, especially my handbags.  I like a certain layout inside, and handles.  I have to walk around the store with it a bit before buying to make sure it is comfy.  I test all the zippers and compartments as well.  I have nothing bad to say about any of her products that I have tried.  It is a great value for the price.  Her line is available at Kohl's.  Now if she could just do a makeup line, my life would be complete!!

Retails for $109.00

This is the Stella McCartney version that retails for 1,295.00

Bun Maker - This is the longest my hair has been in many, many years.  The last time I had long hair that I fixed was 20 years ago!!  So, needless to say, things have changed.  First of all, styles are completely different.  The hair tools are completely foreign to me as well.  When I had long hair, I had a spiral perm (it was the 90's), and all I did was put gel in my hair, blow dry it, and style it.  I was very good with my hair, but I was never big with hair tools.  Now, there are curling irons, curling wands, bubble wands, in stylers, rollers, straighteners, and all sorts of things that I had never used.  Needless to say, I have had a lot of learning to do recently in this department.  Now that my hair is long enough to pull up and do different styles with, it makes hot summer days so much easier.  The bun maker has helped, and I love the polished look that it can give or I can make it messier as well.  It has really helped me and made my life easier, along with some hair tutorials on youtube, of course!

Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo - I really love the Batiste Dry Shampoo, but that isn't available everywhere.  So, I decided to try something new.  I chose this dry shampoo, and really like it.  It has a nice, fresh scent, and really refreshes the hair.  It isn't gritty, and it doesn't weigh the hair down.  It does come out white, but once I rub it in my roots and brush my hair, you can't see it.  I like to spray my roots, let it sit for a minute or two, rub it in my scalp, and then brush it out.  I will definitely repurchase this.  It retails for $4.99.
