I thought that after about 5 months it was time to do another monthly favorites roundup. It’s been a while because I found myself sticking with similar products, so what was the point in repeating myself? Lately I’ve been getting into skincare and testing new products, so take a look at what I’ve been loving all month long!

I love that this sunscreen kit is sold out online (sorry online shoppers, but there are plenty in stores!) May is melanoma awareness month and I think people are jumping on the prevention train now more than ever. This is my first time purchasing the kit because I really wanted to focus on wearing sunscreen daily and not just when I’m going to the pool or beach. Back in January I had about an inch of tissue removed from my back due to an abnormal mole, and although I was fortunate to go early enough before it was anything serious (I visit the term annually), it still makes me paranoid. I purchased this kit because I trusted Sephora to lead me towards the best products (non-greasy or too white on the skin). So far I’ve only used a few products but the first one is already a hit! Going along with this theme is this panama hat I picked up last year (linked is this years version). I’ve been wearing it to protect my head, outfit post to follow!

I purchased the full size of Roller Lash mascara after trying a sample because I’ve always been a fan of curled lashes..my curl usually falls before leaving the house :(. I use this during the day then add another coat of my long time fave mascara to the top lashes for night time. I think Roller lash is great for those interested in defined and longer lashes (with of course a curl, I don’t even use my eyelash curler with it!). I have blonde eyelashes so really any mascara makes a huge difference to my look, haha. 

I wasn’t a fan of this foundation until I combined it with a damp beauty blender. More on that to follow as I plan to do a full makeup routine for the blog as soon as I can get the pictures done.

I’ve been loving this flamingo case. I got it during a sunglass sale for only $5 and although it’s great for sunglasses I’ve been more so loving it as a iPhone case, is that weird? As a person who has horrible iPhone luck (I’m on my 5th one I think…. one fell in the toilet, one I ran over with my car, one fell out of a jeep during a speed bump… you get the picture..). I feel less anxiety when I’m out and about and my phone is double protected in this, especially when I only have this case on it (because it’s all about the looks… #vain). 

I came across this self tanner review and thought I would give it a try, because I mean she completely sold it to me and was a third of the price of my current go-to. Well after trying it myself I would agree that she’s completely right. This tanner lasts much longer than others I’ve tried, which is a huge plus because I don’t have the time to re-apply during the week. I still use this lotion every few showers to keep up the tan, but I don’t think it’s completely necessary like when using others. SCxo tip: this is a must for the best/easiest application!


It’s crazy how much you don’t realize how worn down your old running shoes are until you get a fresh new pair. These have been on my wish list for a few months and when I found them at the Nike Outlet for a discounted price I couldn’t say no! Well actually Tim bought them for me, so technically he could’t say no…

What products have you been loving this past month? Your recommendations are greatly appreciated!

  • Found the perfect striped tee to layer under all your Fall vests (on sale for $12 online only). I sized up to a M for the perfect fit. I’ve bought multiple options for this popular button skirt trend and this one is the keeper! It feels way more expensive than it actually is...all the others felt so cheap! Have you picked one up for the season? I’ve been loving skirts this Fall!

  • Celebrating two years together today 💕 
@shelbyraephotographs captured these photos for our one year anniversary at the same venue we got married. If you’re contemplating doing an anniversary shoot... I highly recommend it! I went all out and did a DIY floral bouquet (that I held the entire drive worried they would tip over, brought our cake topper hoping it wouldn’t melt in the car, and our vows to re-read to each other. You can see the full recap on Strawberry Chic 🍓(search One Year at the top right corner)

  • I am having the best time @hotelatavalon tonight with Tim celebrating our two year Anniversary 💕 I can’t wait to share what we’ve been up to on stories a little later. Also, where have facials been my whole life?? Sunnie @woodhouseavalon taught me so much about my skin today and shared tips I never even thought of that can be causing acne. I’ll definitely be sharing some of my tips with y’all soon on Strawberry Chic if they work for me. I hope y’all are having the best weekend enjoying this Fall weather 💕. Swipe right to see the cutest little bow detail to this sweater.
