May 2014 Favorites | monthly favorites

It’s monthly favorites time! In light of having a nearly makeup-free favorites round up this month, I thought I’d film this video sans makeup too!

Check out the video and products summarized below.

The cat’s now out of the bag… I recently finished a series of six VelaShape treatments to help reduce cellulite on my lower backside. VelaShape is a new-ish body reshaping and contouring treatment which is non-intrusive and essentially painless. I’m really happy with the results and I’ll be sharing more on my experience in an upcoming blog post soon. I got my treatment done at my favorite Bay Area med spa, Skin Spirit in Mill Valley.

Gucci Flora Eau de Parfum
If you’re a fan of V&R Flowerbomb, imagine Gucci Flora as its older, less sweet but more seductive sister. With notes of citrus, rose, peony, sandalwood, and pink pepper, this fragrance is floral with a sexy kick. I’m basically obsessed.

Tory Burch Eau de Parfum
If there’s a perfume for everyday, this is it. TB’s flagship fragrance is crisp, fresh, and slightly floral, with strong notes of neroli, jasmine, and bergamot. There’s just a hint of sandalwood too which gives it lovely dimension. Go to Bloomie’s now and just smell this stunning scent for yourself.

MAC 130 Short Duo Fibre Brush
Unlike my love-hate relationship with the MAC 187, the 130 brush is much better quality. Perfect for undereye concealer, the short and long bristle blend out product fantastically. Most importantly, it doesn’t shed upon using liquid products like the 187. I know this brush would work like a dream for applying highlighter as well!

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
This palette is a beaut, and it’s back out in my daily routine as of late. I especially love Factory, the plummy brown sparkly shade that looks fantastic on the lower lashline in place of an eyeliner. It’s softer, more wearable, and helps my eye color pop.

What did you enjoy the most last month? Please leave me your product recommendations in a comment — I would love to hear them!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have an amazing start to June.

    I’m definitely loving my Smashbox eyeshadow and Philosophy gel face wash & gel cream. It’s so lightweight, I love it, when I put it on, I feel so refreshed and I’m honestly excited to wash my face and put the gel cream on.
