Now that fall is officially upon us (although the weather seems somewhat confused about that), I thought it was time to share my favorite things from spring and summer. These are all things that I’ve been loving the past few months. Let me know what some of your recent favorites are in the comments!
Movies & TV //
Avengers: Endgame – I loved this movie so much that I dedicated an entire blog post to it. I have been a Marvel fan for years now, and this was the perfect way to end a saga. Plus it offered the greatest theater experience I’ve ever had. Crying and cheering is way more fun when you do it as a group.
Toy Story 4 – This movie was simply perfect. I’ve never been the biggest fan of the Toy Story franchise, but this one definitely held up to the standards I have for Pixar. It was an incredibly emotional, poignant film with the perfect amount of nostalgia for those who have grown up with these movies.
Master Chef – I ended up seeing one of the early episodes from this season pretty randomly, and I was hooked. I’m not a huge fan of cooking shows, but I loved the competition aspect and seeing the rational, normal side of Gordon Ramsey. I will definitely be watching again next season.
Catrice Fresh it Up Primer – I cannot say enough good things about this primer. It is perfect if you have dry skin, or if you just want a little extra hydration. I really feel like this pairs well with any foundation, and the price can’t be beat.
Colourpop Luxe Lipsticks – These are some of my favorite products from one of my favorite brands. I’m so happy that Colourpop made “regular” lipsticks, and so happy that they stand up to the amazing quality customers have come to expect from them. My personal favorite shade is “Lay Over.”
Yes To Face Masks – I am very picky about face masks, but this brand has never let me down. Not only do they not irritate my skin, but I feel like they actually help clear up acne. There’s such a huge variety that you can find one for any skin need.
Lovely War by Julie Berry – When I read the synopsis of this book, it sounded like it was written for me. World War I historical fiction mixed with Greek mythology? Um, yes, please! I adored this book and the sweet story it told. Definitely a standout amidst the young adult fiction constantly being released.
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles – I guess you could say I’ve been in the mood for historical fiction recently. This book had such a unique story – a man sentenced to house arrest inside a grand hotel after the Russian Revolution. The lovely writing was just a bonus.
