May Favorites

Well, May has come and gone and we’re now well on our way to official summer. Now if only the weather would cooperate and then maybe I’d be a little excited. But all this rain we’ve been getting lately has just left me thinking good weather will never show up!

Anyways, here are some things that I loved this past month…

Books:

Lilac Girls… I can’t say enough good things about this book. Here’s a link to the review I wrote. I may or may not also gush about this book in tomorrow’s post as well. I swear I’ll shut up about this at some point (actually I can’t promise that… sorry!!). This book was just absolutely amazing and I want everyone to read it. Heartbreaking and riveting and all based off of real people, it’s just crazy what horrors have happened on this earth.

Other Media:

Lizzo!!! I’d never listened to her music before this month and I have to say I was definitely missing out!

Truth Hurts and Juice are my favorites of hers so far and I listen to both of them at least once a day during my drive to work.

Make-up:

I honestly did not wear makeup enough this month to really compile anything good enough for this category. I did however start to work more on skincare stuff, I even started wearing sunscreen everyday (wow, go me!). Might do an in-depth makeup/skincare post sometime this summer though like I did a few years back in this post!

Clothing/Accessories:

Scrunchies

I think that scrunchies are so cute and I love wearing them. I tend to wear them more as a bracelet because I usually already have my hair up when I grab them but I really love them as bracelets too.

Heeled sandals & Midi-Dresses

These shoes are hard to wear at work but I do it anyways! I love wearing heels because they make me feel just a little extra bad-ass every day. And wearing them with longer dresses just makes everything feel a little bit more stretched out and I just think it’s a really nice look. I really enjoy wearing dresses during spring and summer because they’re an easy outfit to just throw together and you need so few pieces to look put together. And when I’m rolling out of bed 20 minutes before I need to be out the door the simpler outfits the better! I got both this dress and these shoes from Target!

Food/Drinks:

Starbucks mango dragonfruit refreshers with lemonade. I’ve also gotten my brothers into them as well. Now I’m really not a big fan of Starbucks most of the time but I had to try this drink and it was SO good. I’ve gotten two so far and I really would get it every day if I allowed myself to.

So that’s a few of the things that I loved in May. I hope to, for June, make a better post. Go a little bit more in depth and have more items on the list. But I guess I really didn’t do much in May and I really didn’t take enough pictures to add things to this list. I’ll try to do better next time and work on compiling stuff all month, working on the post as things come up 🙂

Anyways, what were some things you loved in May?
