June was one of the best months so far this year for me - quality weekend with the boyfriend (who lives in Singapore) for my birthday weekend, various gatherings and meals here and there, and some much needed relaxing after the busy May month at work. Beauty wise I'm in full summer mode, embracing the light all-natural makeup look. I sported a healthy glow with minimal blush and moist plump lips every day, and lived in simple sun dresses and sandals. Sweet, comfy and perfect!
Essie "Haute as Hello" - the perfect summer nail color! I love the coral and neon nail trend this summer, and this is the perfect mix of the 2! Natural enough for work yet bright enough for the beach, "Haute as Hello" is a coral-y pink that borderlines neon. I've worn them on my fingers and toenails and it looks great on both.
Origins Spot Remover - this spot remover is part of Origins' new acne treatment/oil control skincare line. Since I was out of my usual Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, I decided to pick this up for the few annoying spots I had near the end of the month. Worked like a charm! This has a gel like consistency, feels cooling on the skin, and a little goes a long way. It faded spots and got rid of most the redness overnight.
Clarins Natural Lip Perfector - I have a weak spot for any lip gloss and lip moisturizer combo product. But I have to say this one so far tops the list of best one so far. I first heard of this from one of my favorite Youtubers, the Persian Babe, who strongly recommended it. I can see why now! It gives lips the most healthy, luscious and plump looking lips - with the perfect amount of glossiness. Kind of like the natural glossy look you get from licking your lips. It feels amaaaazing on and smells like strawberry milkshakes. A must try for all your lip junkies!
"Love" Bracelet from Etsy (sold here)- I've been drooling over Jennifer Zeuner's Cursive Love Bracelet for a while now, but couldn't justify the USD$121 price tag. So you can imagine I was over the moon when I found this Etsy version of it - I love its cute font even more! Best part? It's only a tenth of the price. I strongly recommend this Etsy Seller Applelatte - a Korean family who hand makes the most adorable dainty jewelry. They were even sweet enough to mail me my order together with a surprise pair of pearl earrings. Brownie points!
Henri Bendel Rose Gold Bangle - this bangle was a gifted to me for my birthday, from a very sweet college friend of mine who brought this all the way back from LA. She knew me well - I've been obsessed with rose gold lately. I've been wearing this one on wrist, and the "love" bracelet on the other a lot - especially for work since they're simple enough to go with everything. This bracelet has a belt like design and buckles exactly like one too... its 3 belt holes makes it easily adjustable. As cheesy as it sounds, now I feel like I always have a little piece of LA on my wrist!
