Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask – Champagne

I actually got this as a sample but loved that it was a lip mask but with some colour! It is thick so your hair will get stuck to it but the colours are great. My sample came with the colours, champagne, natural and smashed. I tried them all and they’re great, the colours aren’t too bright so it’ll go well with everyone. You can get this at Sephora for $30.00.

Tarte – Tarteguard 30 Vegan Sunscreen SPF 30

As most of you know by now I have sensitive skin so I was looking for something that I could put on my face without breaking out. I bought this and decided to give it a try, now I liked it, I didn’t love it. It did the job, my face didn’t get 3rd degree burn, however, my face was still incredible red after spending the day at the beach (and yes I did reapply every 30-45 mins). After not being in the sun (the hour drive home) my face seemed to not be as red but still I thought the burn will show up later. In the end my face wasn’t burn’t! I bought this product at Sephora for $40.00.

Ombrelle SPF 30 Lightweight Sunscreen

Beach days are the best but you have to protect yourself from the sun. My Mum had just bought this but I needed sunscreen so she let me take it. Now sunscreen works my friends but you have to reapply it and that’s what I did. When I got there I put it on, sat in the sun for a bit and went in the water, after I got out of the water, I dried off, let the sun dry me out for maybe 2-3mins then I reapplied again. I did this all day, I was at the beach for 4 hours and didn’t get burnt! This product is thick so it works wonders, rub it in good but a little goes along way if you’re putting it on smaller areas. You can get this at Walmart for $20.00.

Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan

I saw this movie on Netflix and decided to watch it and found out this was based on a true story. I love reading books, they give you so much more information than a movie can so I decided to get her book. I couldn’t put it down even after watching the movie and knowing what happens, this is worth a read. You can get this at Chapters for $21.00.

tarte LipSurgence Lip Tint – Moody

I have recently become obsessed with tarte products because they’re so great. I wrote about their mascara that I bought in last months favourites. This month is the lip tint, I wore these to a wedding in Barrie. It’s a great colour and it keeps your lips nice and moist. The only problem is you do need to reapply quite a bit I found. Which is fine because it gave me a reason to get up and do something! I actually didn’t buy this, I wanted to buy it but my sister already had a sample size so I have that now. You can get the regular one at Sephora for $29.00.

Carried Away Body Lotion from Bath & Body Works

I’ve had this lotion for a really long time and I love the smell. I normal keep it in my work bag because a. it gets rid of the chlorine smell and b. because it helps my skin not be itchy from the chlorine. I got this from Bath & Body Works a long time ago, I know they had a new version of it. This one was $12.50.

Hair Chemist Coconut Oil Deep Repair Masque

This stuff is one of those great life savers for a poolie. After I shower sometimes my hair just wants to be a pain in the butt or I want to make sure I get some moisture back into my hair. I also put this in my hair before I go in the water to help protect it. It’s pretty much coconut oil in a jar, it works wonders and it smells great. I got this at Sally Beauty for $8.99.

FitBit Charge HR

I got this for my 24th birthday from my mum and step-dad. It is the best thing ever, it has gotten me moving so much. This one tracks my steps, my heart rate, miles, calories, floors climbed, my sleep, water intake, and I can put what I have eaten. The best part about it is my whole family has one and on the app you can challenge people to see who can walk the most steps in a work week. It has made my whole family get up and move just so we can beat each other! You can get this at Best Buy and Sports Chek for $179.99.

Netflix

Yup, I am one of those people who caved and got Netflix. My boyfriend has it at his house but I don’t at mine so I bought the two screen one. It’s great, I can watch TV shows or movies I’ve never seen before! Mine cost $11.99 per month I believe.

tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara

I know I have written about mascara before but I’ve had my eye on this one for awhile now. I love tarte because all their products are cruelty-free and they work. This mascara isn’t going to make you eyelashes big but it makes them look like your normal eyelashes with that black boldness to them. You can get any tarte product at Sephora for $25.00.

Garnier Ombrelle SPF 30 Water Resistant Lotion

In last months favourites I wrote about sunscreen for your body and how important it is. Some sort of SPF on your face is just as important, since your face is a sensitive area you really need to take care of it. Ombrelle is a good lotion for your face, it won’t clog your pores, its light and fragrance free. You can get Garnier Ombrelle at Walmart for $13.00-$16.00.

Aveda Air Control Hair Spray

As you all know I love Aveda products, I think they’re amazing and actually work. I’m a girl so anything to help my hair is a must, Aveda Air Control Hair Spray is great, it holds your hair is curls or what not but without leaving that nasty crunch some products can leave behind. You can get Air Control Hair Spray online at http://www.aveda.com or in an Aveda store for $28.00.

Boathouse Skinny Dip Swim Suit

I am a big fan of Boathouse Stores, it’s my go to store for clothing. This summer they had a huge sale on all their swim wear that I just had to go see. I ended up getting this Skinny Dip top with matching bottoms. I just loved the different looking style and the dark colour of it. I got this at Boathouse for $10.00 (each top and bottom, total of $20.00)

Lancome Bi-Facil-Double Action Eye Makeup Remover

When I sent out that Facebook post asking all my lady friends what’s the best makeup remover my mum saw it and that’s when she gave me the Clinque sample in my March Favourites. Well my Mum’s best friend saw the post as well and gave my Mum her sample bottle for me to try. The Lancome Bi-Facil makeup remover is one of my favourites (tied with the Clinque one). They are honestly both great products. I find the Lancome makeup remover hurts my eyes a bit but it gets more of the makeup off, it has also lasted a little bit longer than other but not by much. You can get this product in a lot of stores, Sears, The Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart and of course Sephora for roughly $36.00.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths

This was the product I had in mind when I was looking for a new face wipe since Target closed down. This product is great, like the entire Cetaphil line is, it really is gentle, refreshing, and doesn’t make your face red when you use it; it also comes in two sizes! They have a small travel pack (10 cloths) that you can put in your purse or beach bag, and they have a big pack (25 cloths) that you would leave at home. The only problem with these is they’re impossible to find! I’ve been using them for about 2-3 weeks now because they’re hard to find but I’m impressed with them. I kept going back to the store to see if they had them but they didn’t, then I went to the travel section and bought 3 travel sizes ones. I absolutely love Cetaphil products! You can get these bad boys at Shoppers Drug Mart for $5.00-$7.00.

Sephora-Ombre-Ribbon-Hair-Ties-in-AmethystSephora Ribbon Hair Ties

Every girl tries to find that one hair tie that doesn’t leave that dreadful lump on the back of their hair. Well I think we have found it ladies (and gents). I bought one just to try it out and I fell in love with it. They last a long time and don’t fade in colour or get stretched out fast. You can get an 8 pack in different colours at Sephora for $11.50.

St.Ives Daily Hydrating Vitamin E Body Lotion

I was looking online to see what would help with chlorine burn, vitamin C helps get rid of it but vitamin E helps restore your skin. I love St.Ives body wash so I got this lotion. This works so well, my chlorine burn was gone and my skin felt great. I got this at Shoppers Drug Mart for $4.00-$5.00.

The Real Simple Guide To Real Life: Adulthood made easy. 

I saw this book advertised on The Real Simple Instagram and thought it was an interesting idea. So I went on a mission to a Chapters that would have it, this book is a great idea! I learnt more about life reading this book than I ever did in high school! It teaches you about spending money, credit cards, insurance, and so much more. You can get this at Chapters for roughly $30.00.

1. Coach Wallet is a typical thing that every girl has I just wanted a good wallet.

2. Chapters agenda is something I use everyday to keep track of my life and what’s coming up.

3. Sephora Pocket mirror comes in handy when you don’t have anywhere to check your makeup or to see if you have anything on your teeth.

4. Travel Size Tums. Heart burn or an upset stomach just isn’t fun so carrying Tums helps.

5. I wear glasses, having the case is handy.

6. A Pen. You never know when you’re going to need a pen, signing a birthday card you had to pick up last minute or unexpected interview on your way home from work. Just in case right?

7. Tide to Go. No one is perfect, I get food or stains on my clothes all the time and this is a lifesaver, or should I say clothes saver?

8. Dior Mascara. I travel between my house, work and my boyfriend’s house at lot, I just keep it in one of the pockets on the side and I’m set.

9. Sephora Eyeliner. Keeping it on hand is easier than packing it every time I go out.

10. Ray Bans. I actually have two pairs of Ray Bans that I switch out from time to time. Summer is coming and the sun is bright and it’s a great fashion accessory.

11. Glysomed Hand Lotion. I hate when I wash my hands after going to the washroom then having dry hands and no lotion. This is just a little travel size you get can a 3 pack at Walmart.

12. Blistex Berry Chapstick. This is my favourite chap stick ever, I use it all the time and go thru them like crazy.

13. Pocket Purse Kleenex pack. I had this in my purse during the winter months because a runny nose isn’t fun, now it comes in handy for my allergies!

14. Travel Size Advil. Random headache? No fear this small pack comes in handy when you’re on the go.

15. Allergy Medicine. This travel size comes in handy since I’m on the go all the time.

16. Travel Perfume holder. I got this holder at Target Canada but they no longer exist here, all you have to do is pump in your favourite perfume and it’s there on the go.

17. Heart Shaped Coin Purse. I got this at Chapters but they no longer carry it, I don’t like having all my change in my purse to make it heavy so I put it in there.

18. Mini Brush. Comes in handy on a windy day or just when you have an unexpected sleep over at a friends house.

19. Trident Gum. Freshens breath and whitens teeth for those days when were really tired and maybe forgot to brush them! Oops.
