Monthly Favourites- May 2016

Hello everyone! I can’t believe it is June already! That means one thing: it’s monthly favourites time! I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the last month, from entertainment, clothing, beauty and more! Let’s get started:

Monthly Favourites

Entertainment

The Hills- May 31st marked the 10 year anniversary of this reality show, and it made me a little nostalgic. So what did I do? Had a marathon for the 1st season. And it was awesome. I’ve already said that I’m a huge Lauren Conrad fan, but it was fun going back and watching her again. She was smart for a 19 year old!

Grey’s Anatomy- While I haven’t watched Grey’s Anatomy on TV every season, I had binge watched and seen every episode. I lost track the episode after the mid season finale this year, and caught up in a week. I watched the last few episodes of the season on TV. Even though this show has been on for 12 years, I still really enjoy it! I’m happy to be caught up for next season.

The Bachelorette- It’s that time of year again! I mentioned in my 30 things you might now know about me post how this franchise is my guilty pleasure, but I’m happy the new season has started! I really like Jojo on the last season of The Bachelor, and I hope she finds someone this season. My personal pick is Luke, so we will see how that pans out!

Gilmore Girls- I have been watching this since before February, and am sadly on the last season :(. I’m looking for suggestion for what I should watch next, so if you have any recommendations let me know in the comments! P.S. who is excited for Gilmore Girls to come back?! I know I am!

Toronto Blue Jays- I’m from just outside of Toronto, so the Blue Jays are my home team! Because summer is almost here and the TV pickings aren’t as great, I’m really enjoying watching baseball a few nights a week! I’m finding out just how much I like baseball, and I’m excited to be heading to a few more games this summer. Go Jays go!

Beauty

Loreal Paris Foundation- I recently tried this foundation, and am really liking it! I may need to go a little bit darker as my face tans, but I find this foundation applied really easily with my beauty blender. It’s not too thick so I barely feel like I’m wearing anything!

Clothing

Old Navy Pajama Shorts– I love these pajama pants and shorts! Again now that it is getting warmer, I’ve started wearing these shorts to bed. They are so light and comfortable, and the prints are adorable! I generally buy a few pairs when Old Navy has a good sale (which is most of the time).

Miscellaneous

Strawberries- This one is simple, and so delicious! I’ve been enjoying sliced strawberries in my lunch lately, and they are so good! If I’m feeling like a treat I’ll whip up some crepes with Strawberries and Nutella 🙂

Ice Cream Sandwiches– These cookie ice cream sandwiches are amazing. So much better than the chocolate cookie kind that stick to your fingers! The cookies are soft too, which make them easier to recommend. A perfect treat during the warmer months!

iPhone 6s & Phone Case– In May I got a new phone! I used to have the iPhone 5s but I’m loving the size of my new one! I tend t watch a lot of YouTube on my phone so the screen size makes that a little easier! I am also really loving the phone case I picked out. It’s by Sonix, and I picked it up at Chapters. The pineapples are perfect for summer, and I love how durable it is!

The Tim Tracker– Lastly I thought I would start sharing some of the YouTubers I’ve been enjoying lately! I’d seen a couple of Tim’s videos a while ago, but really got into his channel this month. He and his wife live in Orlando so they go to Disney a lot which I enjoy watching. They also went to Disneyland a few months ago so I watched all of those videos. I’ve never been to Disneyland and I know it will be a while before I get there, but I don’t want to give too much away before I get there in person so I don’t watch too many videos on it. I definitely recommend checking out Tim’s channel, and also his wife’s! Tim also has an awesome moustache. 🙂

Monthly Favourites- April 2016

It’s monthly favourites time! I’m sharing my favourite things in entertainment, clothing, beauty and everything in between! Let’s get started!

Monthly Favourites April 2016

Entertainment

Sex and the City 1&2- The movies recently made their way onto Netflix, so I had to revisit them! I forgot how good the first one was, and how bad the second one was! I definitely enjoyed watching them both, and seeing Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda again.

Room by Emma Donoghue- This month I read the book and watched the movie! I really enjoyed both. I read the book fairly quickly, and enjoyed the story. It’s hard to believe that the story isn’t that far fetched, and actually happens. I enjoyed the movie and thought Brie Larson did a great job in her role.

Zootopia- I finally saw Zootopia and loved it! I thought it had a great message, and the characters were great! The song by Shakira was totally stuck in my head after too.

Beauty

Beauty Blender- I may be the last person to try a beauty blender, but I am a convert! I am really enjoying applying my foundation with the BB, and it does a great job. I used to apply it with a brush, and found that I would get brush strokes on my face, and who wants that! After trying the BB, I definitely noticed a difference.

Tattoo Liner by Kat Von D– I know I mentioned my favourite eyeliner in my February Favourites post, but I have found a new favourite! The Revlon one is still my top pick from a drugstore, but the Kat Von D one is amazing. It glides on like a brush and I can get much closer to the lash line. I feel like I can apply it much faster, and make fewer mistakes which is awesome!

Full Lash Bloom Mascara by Covergirl- I am really loving this mascara! It spreads my lashes and doesn’t clump, and the formula isn’t too wet. It’s amazing how when you find a product you enjoy how much you realize what you were using wasn’t the best. That is definitely how I felt when I found this mascara! I hate to throw out things that I haven’t used up, but my old mascara might have to go.

Rose Gold Nail Polish by Joe Fresh- This was definitely a spur of the moment purchase, but I’m loving it! at $4.99 it was a great deal and the colour is beautiful! It changes in the light and doesn’t have a sparkle that makes out hard to remove. I’m sold! I couldn’t find a link, but put a picture below:

Miscellaneous

Avocado Toast on Squirrely Bread by Silver Hills– I talk more about this in the video below, but I’ve surprised myself with my slowly changing eating habits. Avocado Toast was something that sounded kind of gross, but once I tried it I found a new favourite! I have a piece of toast with a 1/4 of mashed avocado, fried egg and cheese on a piece of Squirrely Bread. The bread is made with sprouted grains so it has more protein and keeps me full for hours. The Squirrely one specifically has seeds so it’s much more flavourful, and the slices are a little thicker.

Monthly Favourites- March 2016

Happy Spring everyone! I can’t believe it’s already monthly favourites time! I’m happy to share some of my favourite things from the past month, from entertainment, clothing, beauty, and anything in between. Let’s get started!

Monthly Faves March 2016

Entertainment

James Bay– Ethan put his music on one morning and I’d heard him on the radio a little, and I kept finding myself putting his music on. He has a beautiful voice that reminds me of James Morrison, and sound that is just so pleasing to the ears.

Disney Parks Background Music– If you like Disney as much as I do you know how much you miss the parks in between trips. Something that has helped me (this month at least lol) is playlists on YouTube. There’s something about the background music that just makes me feel like I’m there. it’s one of my favourite details of the park, and when I’m listening to the music at home, I can’t wait until the next time I’m hearing it in person at the parks.

Fuller House- I’m sure anyone who wanted to watch this already has, and I’m definitely taking my time watching it! Because there are only 13 episodes and it will probably be a year before the next season is up, I wanted to watch it slowly. I also have a low attention span so I have trouble binge-watching shows.

Survivor- The newest season of Survivor is in full swing, and I’m enjoying it! Survivor is one of the only shows I watch religiously (only talking is allowed at commercials) and I’ve been watching it as long as I can remember!

Pitch Perfect 2- I watched this movie a few weeks ago, and it is still as funny as it was when I saw it in theatres!

If you watched or read last month’s favourites, I finished Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire this month! Sharing what I’m reading has definitely motivated me to read more, so I hope to share a new read next month, stay tuned! I am also now on Season 5 of Gilmore Girls (my favourite episode is “We Got Us a Pippi Virgin”), and Ethan and I are now on Season 4 of Suits.

 

Beauty

Almay Liquid Lip Balm in Cantaloupe Cream- I’ve bought two of these and like how they add a little bit of colour, and keep my lips hydrated for hours.

Smashbox Full Exposure Travel Palette– I bought the travel size version of this palette, and am really enjoying it! I like that is has the same shades with and without shimmer, and  have to say the price was right! I don’t wear eye shadow every day, but I found myself wearing it quite a bit in march!

 

Clothing

Mickey Sweater– I actually bought this sweater the day I filmed last months favourites (I’m wearing it too because I was so excited) and I absolutely love it. It’s so soft and cozy, and I made sure to get a large size so it’s loose fitting. I got the Stitch one as well 🙂

Miscellaneous

David’s Tea kit– I actually got this for Christmas as a Secret Santa/Gift Exchange gift. I had been thinking about getting some tea and liked the kit that I could try a bunch of different varieties and then upsize the ones I liked. It’s very relaxing to sit down with a hot cup of tea!

Tea mug– I saw this mug and knew I had to have it. I love puns, and only drink my tea in this.

Special K Pastry Crisps- I usually have these with my lunch and the cookies and creme are my favourite. They taste like Pop Tarts! I usually but the assorted pack from Costco, which lasts a while.

Fibre One bars- I recently discovered these and fell in love. I don’t want anyone else eating these so I stocked up! They aren’t like a normal granola bar, they are made with the puffed grain cereal and are delicious! They get me through the last few hours of my work day.

And that’s it for this month! If you’d like to hear a little more about my monthly favourites check out the coordinating video below:
