Good Morning! I hope everyone is well-rested from the weekend. As you can tell from the title, I am going to list of some of my favorites for the month of July. I cannot believe that we are already going into the month of August: Where has summer gone!?

Some of my July favorites are repeats from previous months, but I can’t help but love some of these products–they’re so good! And, if you love something, you should share it with the rest of the world!

I’ll start with beauty products considering they are all new that I purchased this month from a brand I have never tried before. Needless to say that I fell in love with a new makeup company–Elizabeth Arden. So, my first three makeup products are all from Elizabeth Arden.

The first product is a new bronzer that I have been loving. It’s the Elizabeth Arden Pure Finish Radiant Bronzing Powder in the shade “Warm.” I love how well this contours my face for the summertime. It’s not too overwhelming of a color where it looks like makeup. I love how natural it looks on my skin.

Next, is the Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Brow Shaper and Eyeliner in the shade Sable 03. I have been using the same brow pencil to fill in my brows for over a year now, and making the change to a product I have never used before was intimidating at first. But, now, I am happy I changed my mind because I prefer filling in my brows with a palette-based brow filler than a pencil-based.

Finally, I purchased the Elizabeth Arden Bold Eye Pencil in the shade Platinum Glow. I love using this on the inner corner of my upper lash line and waterline to give my eyes brighter and appear wider. And, it’s an off-white color, so it give my eyes more dimension than a regular white eyeliner.

I have two favorite lip products this month. The first is the Maybelline Color Whisper in the shade Cherry On Top. I have been using this product all summer long, and I can honestly say that it’s still a favorite of mine every single month. The color is gorgeous, whether you decide to create a bold look, or blend it out of a subtle, pink lip.

My second favorite lip product of the month is an EOS lip balm (surprise, surprise). But, I purchased a new flavor this time. I am obsessed with the honeydew EOS balm, it’s sweet and reminds me of a huge bowl of fruit salad. I could practically eat it–if that were considered normal.

My favorite fragrance of the month is a Victoria’s Secret body mist that I purchased months ago, but I used it on my trip and fell in love with it all-over again. It’s the PINK Fresh and Fierce all-over body mist. This scent is light, airy with a crisp, sweet smell all in one bottle. I love how both guys and girls commented on how much they loved how I smelled, so that’s an extra bonus. Also, it’s a small bottle that you can carry around throughout the day when you need a pick-me-up spray.

Next, is my favorite body product of the month. I have been using the Bath & Body Works Pure Paradise 2-in-1 Body Wash And Scrub. I believe that I have mentioned this product in a previous monthly favorites post, but I have to admit that this stuff is awesome. I love how it scrubs away all of my dead skin cells in the shower. Normally, I will use this when I shave my legs because it leave them feeling even more silky smooth; sometimes, I don’t even apply a lotion on afterwards!

My favorite candle of the month is also from Bath & Body Works (another surprise, not!). This month, my threw caution to the wind and purchased a candle online before I could smell it, which is something I would never do. But, in hopes of becoming more spontaneous, I gave it a try, and fell in love. I will list the description listed on the back of the candle.

PassionFlower: “Juicy passion fruit, watery pear and casaba melon combine perfectly with Tahitian vanilla.”

Honestly, I could eat this–again, if that were considered normal.

My last favorite is a fashion favorite for the month. I have been wearing this basic t-shirt from Garage all-month long. It’s a gorgeous indigo color, and it works perfectly with everything I wear. I can tuck it into my favorite skirt, or high-waist shorts, or wear it casually with jeans or yoga pants. It’s my go-to shirt for the month of July. And, it was on sale for $10–I definitely got my money’s worth on this top.

I hope you all enjoyed seeing some of my favorites for the month of July. And, I want to know what you all have been loving this month. So, if you have anything you’d like to share, let me know. And, as always, I will talk to you all soon! Enjoy the start to a new week.
