August has been busy! Crazy busy! I have only blogged so far once this month! I know, it is sad! I did not get a chance to post my #100happydays post the past 2 weeks, so I think it shall be about time. 🙂 I am in the process of doing the 100 Happy Days challenge on Instagram where I post a picture of something that makes me happy during that day. I am almost half way through! Time does go by fast! Hope you enjoy!

Day 43.5 of #100happydays Mirya went to the groomer today! Lesson learned as soon as she starts blowing her coat again bring her in to the groomer right away! First I tried taking care of it myself and used a furminator and she looked so patchy and not her pretty self. Anyway the groomer bathed her and used a powerful blow dryer and brushed her and now her coat looks gorgeous again. She even got a cute scarf! 🙂

Day 49 of #100happydays To all the people who know me, know that I am obsessed with pandas! I’ve loved panda bears ever since I was a little girl so when I saw Dani from #coffeebreakwithdani@coffeebreakwithdani wearing this scarf, I knew I had to get it! I got mine in green! I would have taken a picture of me wearing it but I just got off a 12 hour night shift so that picture will have to wait.

May 2014 Monthly Favorites: Beauty, Fashion, & Lifestyle!

May was sure a busy month! It flew by so fast, that I am still in shock that it is already June! Life has been pretty busy with work and moving out of my house. I have been neglecting the blogging side of things a little bit. 😦 Although, I did start a new blog during that time, so I don’t feel too neglectful! I had a hard time narrowing down what I wanted to include in my monthly favorites. I loved a lot of things this month! But, I do have quite a few monthly favorites that I want to share with you all! I hope you enjoy! Also, make sure to comment and let me know if you have tried any of these products and what you think of them! I hope you enjoy!

MAKEUP & SKINCARE

Cindy-Lou Manizer from The Balm

What the Balm says, “An all-in-one essential, this smart shadow, beautiful blush and subtle highlighter is tucked inside a go-anywhere compact. The light-reflecting peachy pink hue adds a splash of color to your cheeks and a hint of shimmer to your lids, while illuminating your finest features.” Information found here

IMG_20140602_153927412

I haven’t had this beauty product for that long, but I really do like the shade. It can be used as a highlighter, shimmer, or a shadow. I use mine as a highlighter, it just gives the face a pretty peachy-pink highlight. I love the packaging as well! The Balm always gets an A+ on packaging in my book! I also have the Mary-Lou Manizer version of this, love that one as well. That one is more of a champagne shade. They’re both super pigmented so you only need a little bit!

Setting Brush by Real Techniques

What Real Techniques says, “The key to completing any look with a controlled dusting of powder or highlighter.”  More information found here.

This brush goes hand in hand with the monthly favorite described above. I use this brush for highlighting because I think that it is the perfect size. The brush is super soft and easy to use. RT brushes are also cruelty free which is important to me. This brush could also be used for blending out concealer.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Strawberry 

What The Body Shop says, “This rich and creamy Body Butter is a feast for the skin. It melts straight in to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. It contains Community Fair Trade shea butter and has a sweet strawberry scent. 24-hour hydration Great for normal to dry skin Sweet strawberry scent.” More information found here

This was my first purchase ever from The Body Shop. I am a HUGE fan of strawberries so I of course had to pick this one up. I actually ordered this mini body butter online so I didn’t get to test it out first. This stuff smells AMAZING! It is like strawberries on steroids! The body butter is nice and creamy and has the perfect thickness. It is perfect for during the day for a quick hand cream and it does help moisturize my hands. I usually use more of a thicker more moisturizing hand cream at night.

Kat Von D Monarch Eyeshadow Palette

What Sephora says, “An alluring, warm-toned eyeshadow palette with a stunning composition of colors—three large base shades and nine transformative accent hues—for a spectrum of stunning eye looks. ” More information found here

IMG_20140605_160217707

I am in love with this palette! I love all the colors included. The shadows are super pigmented and just gorgeous!  I just find it to be a super unique palette, because it includes some shades that I have never seen before. The packaging is amazing and it is very fitting for Kat Von D and her personality. Well, it should be because she drew the palette design. I have 3 Kat Von D items from her line, which are all palettes. So far, I am quite impressed with her makeup line and I’m curious about her other makeup items. What products have you tried from her line?!? I don’t want to give out too much information about this palette. I have a review coming up on this palette and the sister palette Chrysalis, which is gorgeous as well!

Sigma Beauty Single Eye Shadow in Triomphe 

What Sigma Beauty says, “The Sigma Beauty Individual Eye Shadow Collection features a versatile assortment of shades and finishes from our best-selling eye shadow palettes.  Each eye shadow has a rich pigmentation and long-lasting wear. Mix and match for your favorite colors to create a customized collection.” More information found here

IMG_20140602_153828417

When I was at Mall of America a few months ago, I got this shadow for free with a purchase. I had a hard time deciding what shade to pick out! I decided on the shade Triomphe, which is a duo-chrome pewter. This shade is actually part of the Paris palette. This shade is super gorgeous and I love the duo-chrome finish to it. It is also pigmented and blends easily! This shade is perfect for the outer V and even could be used all over the lid for a more darker look.

Jamberry Nails!!!

This is probably my biggest monthly favorite! I have a love for having something pretty on my nails! Being a nurse my nail polish chips right away with constant hand washing. Meet the company Jamberry Nails! 😀 Basically these are high quality vinyl nail wraps, which is such a smart idea!  I have so far applied 2 different Jambicures and so far I love them! They don’t chip! They last a lot longer than any nail polish! My first Jambicure was Chalkboard Hearts and my second Jambicure was Flutter By. Flutter By was a May exculsive, I am glad that I got my hands on a sheet of this adorable butterfly design. I will be doing an actual review on these vinyl nails, so stay tuned for that!

FASHION

I loved this dress from Maurices this month! I paired it with my new madden girl sandals that I got at Famous Footwear! I really like how this outfit turned out. Also, I got the white little cardigan at Maurices as well. Surprise! Love that store!

IMG_20140523_174002506 IMG_20140523_180647

Here is another dress that I got at Maurices! 🙂 I paired it with that same white cardigan. I love this dress and I love the color orange! You can find this dress here.

LIFESTYLE 

Movies

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
I really love the new Spider-man movies, along with a bunch of other people. Lol! I really like Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Personally, I think that this Spider-Man film has been the best Spider-Man movie so far (including the Tobey Mcquire ones)! There were funny parts in it and there were sad parts in it as well. Overall, I think that it was really well done. Comment and let me know if you have seen this movie.

Endless Love
Yes, this movie is a chic flick and a little cheesy, but I think it is adorable! There is nothing wrong with watching a “feel good movie.” Not everything has to be blood and gore and guts!

Games

Pikmin 3
Recently I sold my Iphone back to Best Buy in place of a gift card. I ended up getting the Nintendo Wii U. I have always been a fan of Nintendo with Yoshi being a favorite character of mine. It was a super nice deal,  I got a lot back for my Iphone! I got this game called Pikmin 3! I actually played the original Pikmin game back in the day on GameCube, with one of my good friends all the time. It is an all time favorite of mine! So fast forward to Pikmin 3, and I still love it! Although, with life being so busy, I haven’t been able to play it much. I figured it would be easier for me just to show you a preview of the game. I know some people probably think it is silly, but I love it! Aren’t the Pikmin adorable?!?

Shows

Revenge
Revenge has had its moments! Honestly, part of this season I wanted to quit watching this show. There was too many characters and I got lost with the story line. But, thankfully I kept watching because it all ended with the season finale! This season finale was intense! I can’t wait to see what happens! Comment and let me know if you watch Revenge.

Dancing with the Stars
I loved watching this show and I think that it was one of this best seasons of DWTS ever! I just think that they had a lot of good celebrities, which kept the show interesting. I watched Meryl & Charlie win the gold at the Olympics, that was a big reason why I watched this season more faithfully. I was happy to see Meryl and Maks win!

MIRYA, MADDIE, & MOLLY MONTHLY FAVORITES

If you want to see my pets monthly favorites then I suggest you check out my pet blog that I recently started called, “The HAPPY PAW Files.” I have a post about their paw approved monthly favorites going up at the same time as this one! I hope you subscribe and show Mirya, Molly, and Maddie some love! You can find that blog post here.

That concludes this monthly favorites post! I hope you enjoyed reading this! Comment and let me know what you thought and if you have tried any of the products mentioned. Also, let me know if you have watched any of the shows or movies, or played Pikmin 3 as well!
