Another month has come and gone. I can hardly believe that today is the fourth of July! (I hope it’s a happy one and that you all get to see some fireworks.) I’m home on the Cape for the rest of the week with my family. This month, I rediscovered an old favorite brand (Aveeno,) and obsessed over sparkle (but is that any different from usual?) I’m also dying over everything Otte, working on my tan (fake,) obsessing over a new perfume, and loving Rembrandt’s whitening toothpaste. What were your favorite things this month? I’d love to hear them in the comments.
For more on why I love these products, keep reading.
I can’t get enough of Catbird’s rings. My summer combination has been this heart ring (middle finger) and this dainty stacking ring (ring finger.) Sometimes I stack them, other times I wear them separately. I don’t remember the last time I got so many compliments!
I always manage to forget how much I love L’Oreal Sublime Bronze. I’ve tried all of the expensive self-tanners and keep coming back to this one, for good reason. Apply this once a week, and people will think you don’t have a day job.
BaubleBar’s Skull Bracelets are unreal. They were selling so well that BB wouldn’t even let us employees buy them! I (finally) have one in neon pink, and cannot wait to get the rest of the colors.
Aveeno Creamy Moisturizing Oil is an old favorite that I recently revisited while at the drugstore. I couldn’t believe I had abandoned it all those years ago. It’s good stuff. It’s a lightweight oil that feels more like a lotion. Not greasy at all, and smells amazing. Best drugstore find ever… I won’t forget about it again!
In my experience, whitening toothpastes (at least the hardcore ones,) don’t do the other stuff – or my teeth end up hurting. I tested out Rembrandt’s Intense Whitening Toothpaste and am obsessed. My teeth are noticeably whiter, but it does all the other stuff too (deep cleans, freshens breath, doesn’t leave them super-sensitive after.) Love this stuff.
Joya Studio Ames Soeurs Roll-on Perfumeis a new favorite. It’s rich, smoky, and subtle at once (you have to smell it to believe it!) It has fruity top notes (tamarind + grapefruit,) a rosy heart, and a smoky base (cedarwood, amber, sweet musk.) You smell it and you think… yum!
Great picks as usual! I have the pink Bauble Bar skull bracelet too and I’m obsessed! And Catbird rings are next on my list–I just don’t know how I’ll choose which ones to get. They are all so cute!
Ahh thanks Alyssa! Yes, you NEED some rings from Catbird – they are so perfect for stacking!!
I really love these posts – I am in desperate need of some sunless tanner, but am so scared to try it. At least this one is affordable so if it doesn’t work out I won’t feel like I wasted my money! 🙂
Don’t be afraid! Give this one a try, I promise… it’s really great!
I’m loving the sublime bronze these days. Happy July 4th!
Thank you!! Happy, happy fourth!
Must try that bronzer and Rembrandt; always feel the same as you about whitening toothpastes until now. THanks!!
PS: Catbird rings, the heart and the letters, are so on my wish list!
I love mine. So little and dainty… they have such a special feel to them!
They are really good! Very impressed by the Rembrandt!!
I love that ring combination! I just checked out Catbird’s site and am thinking about some of the letters too…
and I just posted about one of my favorite June products yesterday! It doesn’t hurt that it was a point perk from sephora either… http://notyouraveragebeachbum.blogspot.com/
I have a few of the letters too… I just love their pieces – so dainty + lovely! Heading over to check out your post, now!
ahhh i have always loved those rings and the heart one is so cute!
I’m obsessed with them!
visions of catbird rings dance in my head! love that duo.
They really are the best… I love how delicate and dainty they are!
