May 2017 Favorites

Thursday, June 08, 2017

        Some say "less is more" and I couldn't agree more when it comes to my May favorites.  One of the items I featured in a previous monthly favorites post, but trust me, there is a perfectly good reason why it has reappeared in this post.  If you have been following my blog from the beginning, you may know which item I'm referring to, but if not, keep reading and I'll reveal which one it is!  Let's begin, shall we?

        First up, this "Mermaid Eye Matte" eyeshadow trio from Chantecaille is absolutely amazing.  For my everyday makeup routine, I had been using the same three Urban Decay eyeshadows for years, but I decided it was finally time to spice it up a bit.  Besides its amazing pigmentation and silky application, the best part of this eyeshadow trio is 5% of Chantecaille's proceeds will be evenly donated to the charities in Africa dedicated to preserving the beauty of the wild.  Purchasing beautiful eyeshadows for a wonderful cause seems like a win-win situation to me!  If anything, it's the best excuse to buy more makeup.  

           As you know, I thoroughly believe every outfit deserves a little sparkle, so I just had to include at least one jewelry item in my favorites.  A few years ago I purchased these Kate Spade bangles for my mother as a Mother's Day gift, but she allowed me to borrow them for a photo shoot and I have been wearing them quite often.  They are incredibly versatile, easy to slip on, and I love that they are engraved with fun and inspirational phrases.  I just may have to purchase my own pair of these bangles!  

        Finally, here is the favorite that is making its second appearance here on my blog.  Yes, it's this beehive clutch from Skinnydip London!  I purchased it a while back from Topshop and I just had to include it in this month's post because I recently purchased the matching iPhone case!
         Yes, the last and final favorite for the month of May is this cute beehive iPhone case- also by Skinnydip London.  On a scale of 1-10, the practicality of this case is about a 3 since it offers no sense of protection, but I give it a 10 for cuteness!  I'll probably continue to be loyal to my Kate Spade ice-cream cone case, but for now, I am in love with my matchy-matchy beehive set.  Now all I need is a pair of bee heels!  Too much? Well, that completes the goodies I have been loving in the month of May!  Let me know in the comments below what items you have been loving.  As always, I am sending you lots of love from my heart to yours!
