Monthly Favorites: March

FASHION
LiveFashionAble ‘Tadesse’ Bucket Bag. This bag as been a catch all bag for me this month. It seems small, but once you start packing, it just holds so much! Plus, I really like the black color!

JEWELRY
Madewell Hoop earrings (similar).
I’ve had these for 4+ years and I just recently started wearing them again! I wuv them!!! I’ve always love the way hoop earrings look. They’re such a classic!

BEAUTY
Essie ‘Master Plan‘ nail polish.
I adore this nail polish. I wear it when I want a neutral color on and this does the trick! Wore it for a photoshoot this month, and it was wonderful.
L’oreal ‘butterfly kisses‘ nail polish. This is the best spring time nail color. I wore it for Easter, and I couldn’t have been happier! I currently have it on my tootsies : )
Revlon Ultra HD matte lip color ‘flirtation. I feel as if I’ve talked so much about this lip color, but i can’t help it. I reallu enjoy wearing it!
Marc Jacobs Fineliner ultra skinny gel eye crayon. This stuff is uhhh-mazing!!! I think it’s for your tightline, but I’m not totally sure. I just know it’s incredible and the staying power is worth mentioning.
Herban Cowboy ‘Dusk‘ Cologne. I love a good mainly scented cologne that i can pair with florally scents, that normally wear by itself. I constantly get asked what perfume I have on!
Nest ‘Indigo‘ perfume. And this just so happens to be the florally scent. But paired together with DUSK, it’s amazing!

FOOD
Organic Strawberries
Chia seeds
Late July Sriracha Fresca Tortilla chips. These chips are amazing! I feel as if I’m eating doritos, just minus the GMOs and gluten. I wish I could buy a boat load of them!
Allegro blended espresso. I only tried it once, but I’m fairly sure, I will be ordering again. It’s from Wholefoods at the coffee bar, you can choose whatever milk you want(I chose half & half), and I added mocha syrup in it aswell.
Sonic Ice Tea. I live in the south, ice tea is a must! And with sonic ice, it just makes tea better!

MEDIA
• ‘Medicine‘ – A dance film. Ugh, the choreography is amazing in this video. You need to watch. It’s so beautiful, if only I could dance like this! 😍😍😍
The TV show Ed. This show is not to be confused with Mister Ed. This has Elizabeth Banks and Tom Cavenaugh as the main characters. A lot like the Gilmore girls humor.
Gilmore Girls reruns. I love Gilmore girls! I’ve been watching from start to finish on the UP channel. And i am thoroughly enjoying it.

Tell me, what were some of your favorites from March?!

Monthly Faves: December

image

(from left to right)
Sam Edelman petty boots in taupe. I wore these constantly in December. They go with everything and they’re incredibly comfortable.
Washi tape. Washi tape is THE best! I love using to hang stuff on the wall, wrap presents with, use on hand written letters etc. It just gives a quirky twist to everything!
J.crew leopard slip on sneakers. I think I told you, but these are from Canada. And I think I paid around $20 for them. Such a steal. But a great pair of shoes that I can pair with anything.
Eileen Fisher sweater. This actually my mama’s. And I steal(I mean borrow) it anytime I can. Its so soft & so flattering.
Dried Mandarin oranges. This are amazing! If you’ve never tried these jewels, you are missing out. Pro: they’re a healthier snack being made with fruit. Con: it’s coated with sugar. But still so tasty.
Skinn 6x lip balm in mango. This is the MOST moisturizing lip balm ever! It’s amazing!
BareMinerals eyeliner brush. This brush is an essential to my eyeliner applying life. I’m not fully committed to a winged out liner, but the smooth line you make from corner to corner is used by this brush. It’s so great!
Butter London ‘champers’ nail lacquer. This is the perfect rose gold shade. If you’re into rose gold like I am. This shade is for you. I’m not one to polish my nails the same color back to back. But I kid you not, I used this stuff consecutively 4 times. It’s lovely.
Metallic drawing pencils. For grown up coloring. These are amazing, as I do love metallic pretty much anything!
Tokyomilk dark bulletproof °45 perfume. This is an amazing scent. I constantly reach for it. And I smell so good all day long. It is a dark musky smell, so be forewarned…

Music
Hello by Adele. Obviously. I wuv it.
Pentatonix Christmas album. I had already decided I wouldn’t like this album. But I was in a friends car and she had this on and I was hooked. Amazing Christmas album!

Foodie
Limoncello Panatoni. Most of the time I choose any other flavor besides lemon. But on a whim I decided to buy this and it’s delicious. It has lemon curd in the center and it’s great slathered with butter.

Film
Dolly Parton’s coat of many colors. Great story line and a peek inside of how dolly parton was raised. Worth a watch!

So those are my favorites for December! What’s one thing you loved in December?! I’d love to hear from you!

Monthly Faves: August

image

Boy, what a month! It flew by, kinda like how September is!
How’s your September doing so far?!

image

I have done many things… Styling, babysitting, sewing, making new jewels, selling… Oh and I also started posting daily on my Styledbyryn page on Facebook! Come check it out!

I have gathered a few favorites from August to share with you!

-Here they are-

Face:
Tarte Maracuja bronzing serum
This stuff works! My face is peaches & cream white. And this gives me a light tan! Toning down my red cheeks as well! Good, good stuff!

Maybelline Blue Mascara
Love my blue mascara. It’s just a hint of color when I have a neutral makeup face on. I just love it! And I apply it on top of my black mascara. It works well!

Mouth Watchers toothbrush
This is an all natural toothbrush. It has natural bristles. And it cleans my teeth so so well! If you’re on the search for a great toothbrush, you should try it!

Body:
Oldnavy b+w striped swing dress
This dress is my fave! I love the way it hugs the top half of me, and then swings away from the body. But in a figure flattering way. It’s just such a great dress!

Food:
Whole30
This eating plan was tough! But I loved how I felt! It felt fantastic afterwards… And I found out I’m gluten intolerant… So now I’m gluten free. And I’m totally a-ok!

Coconut cream
This stuff is amazing. As you probably have heard the coconut fruit is a miracle fruit. I particularly love refrigerated coconut cream, I love eating grapes and dipping them into the cream, so delish! I also love using the cream for coffee, and salad dressings.

Shows:
Skinwars
Um, I love this show. I’m so amazed how artists can paint murals on bodies. With all the crevices humans have, I’m just amazed y’all!

Project Runway
I’ve watched this show for years! Literally years. And I’ve always said that if it was on by the time I hit 30, I would apply to be on there… Not so sure I would though. But anyway, its just now getting good, they’re getting rid of the designers that aren’t good. And you can see the amazing touches that the good designers have! Ahh I love it!

Blogger:
http://www.TheSarahHowell.com
I’ve known this girl for years, and yet never spoken to each other, so I remember… But her blog is incredible! Her photography, her style, her writing… ALL of it! I love it so much!

Monthly Favorites: July

Hey y’all, July seemed to drag out for quite a while, which really I didn’t mind a bit… I had a really busy first week of July, then it slowly trickled its way down…sorta! I did pick up a few faves along the way though… Nothing over the top, but some things I was just loving. Here they are:

image

This Cup: similar here! Omgosh. It’s adorable! I picked it up at Starbucks obviously. And I have been using it non stop since. The pink straw gets me every time!

image

Lips, what can I say, I love my lip products. And I especially loved these shades this past month!
Top to bottom:
• Bite Beauty luminous crème lipstick in Musk. This may not seem like a pretty lipstick, but I’m my gosh the combo of my natural color & the color of the tube is gorgeous! It’s definitely a win!
• MAC cosmetics in Candy Yum yum. I personally get so many compliments when I wear this lipstick. It’s just an in your face pink punch, that is just so right for me.
• And finally, MAC cosmetics in Ruby Woo. I’ve actually only have worn this once, like ever… Since Christmas when i received it. but I instantly loooooved it. it’s the perfect red matte formulation!

These shoes are amazing. I had to fix them with leather glue, but once I did that I have been wearing these non stop. I like be the patina on the leather. They with so much! Go get some similar here : )

Jewels:

image

MC+CO’s Rose Gold dog tags. Yep, I love these and have been wearing these constantly! And the message behind it is even stronger. To give love instead of hate. To love on others as much as you would want someone doing to you! You can purchase these soon from here!

Songs:
Only your love by Kari Jobe. I adore this song. I don’t always love her songs, but when I do I listen to them constantly… Which I definitely did with this song!

You’re so good to me by The Beach Boys. First I have to say, I have loved the beach boys since I was a small tot. It’s only natural to listen to them. I had never heard of this song until this past month when listening to their album. I loooove it. I want to use it in my wedding somehow… You know my non-existent wedding! 😜 Just check it out!

Movie(s):

image

Woman in gold. Um, have seen it? I suggest you do if not. Its so good. Its with Helen Mirren & Ryan Reynolds.

Synopsis:
Maria Altman sought to regain a world famous painting of her aunt plundered by the Nazis during World War II. She did so not just to regain what was rightfully hers, but also to obtain some measure of justice for the death, destruction, and massive art theft perpetrated by the Nazis.

Call me a art junkie, and I won’t mind a bit. This movie was beautifully made. I would watch it again and again and again.

And finally this article: it’s from a man who is the grandson of the man who established the brand Madewell. And for someone who loves Madewell & history. She (being me) loved to learn &  read about it. Even though that family doesn’t run Madewell any longer, It still pulls on my heart strings, and makes me want to buy from them. I guess its the principal of it all. You’ll just have to read it.

And there you have it, all of my favorites of July. Next it’ll be whole new faves for August… Can you believe it already August?

Tell me what your favorites were for July, I’d love to know : )
