Now that June has passed, I’m at the halfway mark of my summer break. Thinking back, I haven’t done much since I had my birthday at the beginning of the month; all I’ve done is studied and written essays for my summer classes. One goal of mine for July is to do something at least once a week – to get out of my PJs and have an adventure with my friends. I think now I’m also going to make a monthly playlist on Spotify, so this month’s songs will be listed below.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish
One skill I’ve never mastered is painting my nails. When I get the chance to get them done, I want them to last. Normally gel polish has to bake on, but this formula dries like normal polish yet has the strength of gel. This summer I recommend the colors 184 Frill Seeker, 419 Redgy, and 240 It Girl.
Sailor Stuffed Alpaca
Japanese kawaii culture is the definition of cute. (Literally and figuratively) Every summer, my two best friends go to a convention in Dallas and come back to show off their cool merch. This month, they picked up a stuffed sailor alpaca. IT’S SO CUTE! I love alpacas and llamas so much. It goes perfectly with my other alpaca named Eric.
Sephora Colorful Eyeshadow Carousel 288
It seems like my recent go-to look has been a red smoky eye, but I’ve been experimenting with purple shadows this month. You get that bright pop of color without being too crazy. Typically shimmery shadows like this aren’t as long lasting as this is. Sephora’s in-store brand makeup is really underrated compared to others in its price category.
Louise et Cie Kambria Heels
I don’t normally buy shoes, but when I saw these I couldn’t say no. Neutral shoes like these can be worn all year long and year after year. That’s why I don’t feel bad investing in pieces like these. Chunky heels make the shoe easier to walk in and gives you some support.
Anna Griffin Thank You Cards
Thank you cards are always good to have on hand. The pink marveling and metallic lettering just stands out compared to other boxed cards.
