June Favorites

It's been a hot minute since I've done a monthly favorites post. Honestly it's because at school I'm not going to Target picking up little things every week or really shopping at all, but now that I've been home for two months I have racked up some new favorites and have rediscovered some old tried and trues.


TRESemmé Reverse System (Shampoo and Conditioner) | I've been wanting to try this shampoo/conditioner combination since Meghan worked with TRESemmé last year, so yeah it's been on my try-list for a while. The last shampoo I bought made my head super itchy, so I basically ran to Target and finally picked up this stuff to try because I remembered it existed.

Y'all, I love this shampoo, which I feel like I say about a lot of shampoos, but this stuff is amazing and is probably my favorite that I have tried. So I have a pretty big head, and I hate when my hair is flat because it throws off everything in my mind. I also have a lot of super thin hair, so my hair is easily weighed down by product. The reverse system changes all this because I get to have super soft hair that isn't weighed down by the conditioner once it dries. ...if any of that makes sense, but I love this stuff and high recommend trying it out.

MAC Powder Blush in Peaches | This is essentially the only blush I use, even in the winter, but this is the perfect blush for the summer. It's the perfect pinkish (kinda orange?) coral in my opinion, and I am definitely leaning into the "wearing too much blush even though I am wearing leggings" look that I have been rocking this summer.

Vaseline Lip Therapy
 | I've been using the Vaseline lip therapy for almost two years now, and it's still my go-to for when my lips feel dry. I've started using it at night before I go to sleep, and that extra step has changed my life. Obviously my lips aren't super dry in the summer like they are in the winter, but they just feel so much better since I've started applying the Vaseline before I go to sleep. It also repairs my lips because I bite my lips when I am stressed or nervous.

St. Ives Oil Scrub | Another Target pick up. My skin has been kind of funky since I got back from college. I'm not breaking out a ton, but my skin has been super rough/bumpy. I've used St. Ives before, and I chose the Apricot because it had the highest exfoliation factor compared to the other oil scrubs which a lower factor. This stuff is gritty, and it's fantastic. After the first time I used it, my skin felt smoother and overall less gross.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste | Is it weird to have a toothpaste as a favorite? Maybe. Can y'all tell I went to Target this month? Honestly I picked up this kind because Brooke mentioned it in her May Favorite video, and the toothpaste/toothbrush aisle overwhelms me, so I just grabbed the last toothpaste I had heard about. There are too many options for anyone's own good, so I grabbed it and ran away. After three days I noticed that my teeth seemed whiter, which I will definitely take.

Harry Styles | Last week I shared with y'all my summer playlist, and I seriously had to hold back from putting the entire Harry Styles album on there. I am absolutely obsessed with the album, and for a good week it was the only thing I was listening to. I've cut back slightly, so I could listen to other new music, but I mostly listened to this for the month of June. I was going to share with y'all my favorite songs from the album, but I started listening to it, and my favorites kept changing!! The entire album is so good. Also I've definitely watched Carpool Harry-oke more than enough times. P.S. I get to see Harry Styles next summer in Nashville!!!

Melodrama | Best. Album. Ever. When I am not listening to Harry Styles, I am listening to Melodrama. Every moment on this album calls to me and makes me feel not alone. Something I forget all the time is that Lorde are super close in age (she's 20 and I'm 19). This album came out at the perfect time and just feels like everything I have ever thought and wanted to put into words. Much like Harry Styles, I honestly don't have a favorite song. My favorite lyric changes every time I listen through the album. It's perfect.

Oh, Hello on Broadway on Netflix | I love John Mulaney and Nick Kroll. I've watched John Mulaney's comedy specials way too many times, and I saw The Comeback Kid with my sister, and then I think I've seen every episode of the League at least twice. Obviously I was super excited when I saw their Broadway show Oh, Hello was coming to Netflix. The show definitely combines the best part of their humors, and it made me so excited for John Mulaney's new comedy show that's happening this fall.
