Beauty Favorites: June

Thursday, June 21, 2018

Summer is my favourite time, usually because means it is vacation time. Bosnia is fairly humid and I wear a little to no make up while on vacation. So this year while packing for Bosnia I tried to simplify my packing list. I was looking for things I will use, and that are easily packed. There are the things I will be 100% packing for my three week trip.

This Tarte pallet has everything. Its compact and wont take  a lot of space, and due to how its packaged there is a less of a chance that my make up will not break. 

This is my go to body cream, I love everything about it. From smell to  how well it moisturizes my skin. I love that its not greasy or sticky.

I love lipsticks and lip-glosses. I picked up a Bite Lip set and loved every color in it. They go on so smooth and the pigment is amazing. They don't dry my lips out, plus the packaging is so cute.

Murad: Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips
I picked this product out while back instead of a lip plumper. I loved that it contains Shea Butter which makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing. My lips always feels so soft, and look fuller.

Dresses and skirts are my jam and finding short skirts that fit well and I am comfortable in is hard. While shopping for holidays I struck gold. I ordered these skirt on a whim, not knowing what to expect because I couldn’t try it on. Denims skirt came in actually being flattering because its high-waisted, which is slimming and who doesn’t want that. Skirt is actually super comfortable and will perfect for summer.

Top 5 Returning Shows to Watch

Tuesday, June 19, 2018

I am so excited that the shows I was obsessed with are back with a new season and I will not lie I may have already binged watched one or two already. 
Claws- I love, love, love this show! It has an amazing female cast and I love how they project a strong female lead. She's just a woman trying to run her nail salon, its not her fault trouble finds her. 

Dear White People- This show is controversial it was i season one and is more so I think in season two.  I don't think you need to be a minority to like this show, I just love that it gives a voice to issues people face on a daily basis that others may not know about. 

Glow-Female wrestlers I don't know why but I was hooked on this show, I can't wait to see what happens in Season 2. 
13 Reasons Why- I already finished season 2 and i'm already hoping there is going to be a season 3. They left this series off with more of a cliff hanger which gives me hope for another season. If you thought season one was good you must watch season 2!

The Handmaid's Tale- I already mentioned this before but it's finally out so I will mention it again, there is a season 2 and I am excited to binge watch it when all the episodes have aired. 

Imposters- Season 2 is in full swing and I made the mistake of watching the episodes as they aired. I am hooked, I love the dynamic between the 3 amigos; Ezra, Jules and Richard they make this show and I am rooting for them. 

What show are you happy is back? What show didn't make the list that should have?

Must Read Summer Books + #Giveaway

Friday, June 15, 2018

I don't know about you, but there is something about summer vacation that usually means I need a few new books to bring along and read. I seem to read more in 3 weeks on holidays than in couple of months leading up to my vacation. Summer books need to be light, easy to read, captivating  and intriguing - there is nothing worse than picking up a complicated book to read while chilling on the beach. I once tried to read a memoir while on a beach - I think I read the same page 5 times before I gave up and move on to the next book.

Here are some books that (we think) are great Summer reads:

I absolutely fell in love with this book – yes it's written for young adults but that might be what made it such a great beach read. I brought first two book in the series on my last vacation and didn’t want to put them down.

This was the ever first book I got on audible. I love podcasts but I wasn't sure if audio books were for me, and to my surprise I absolutely love it. This is a self help book but not like others I have read. Its funny, clever and easy to read (or listen)

The Lunar Chronicles is a series of books, where each book entails a new take on an old fairy tale, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Snow White. The story takes place in a futuristic world where earthens, cyborgs, androids, and a race of moon colonists all coexist. I absolutely loved it - I think I powered through the first book in matter of a day.

Amy mentioned this series couple of time, and with 13 books it is a very good book series. You can read each book as a standalone but suggest you read from the first book and on. I especially love the little chapter title quotes. The characters are very comical and heroic. Every book is a page turner.

I loved every part of this book. I powered through it in two days. I thought this book would be light, and in some ways, it is, but some things hit me right in the feels. This might not be for everyone, but I found it heartwarming.
