My 2019 May Favorites

Hey y'all!

I've recently been binge-watching monthly favorite videos on YouTube. I miss the good ole days where you could expect at least 3 of these types of videos in your subscription box. Not only is it a great way to discover new products, but it might also remind you of your favorite lip gloss that you used to use.

I figured it was time to do a little throwback here on the blog too, and share my favorites from the month of May!

1. Mad Hippie Skin Care
So if you're new here, then you wouldn't know I have acne-prone skin. It's gotten a lot better as I've grown up, but I definitely still get breakouts, especially around that time of the month. But for the past few months, I've been using the Mad Hippie Skin Care line, and let me tell you that obsessed is an understatement. I linked to the full 6-pack set that I use, but feel free to mix and match!

My skin has never felt sooooo soft in my entire life. My skin is CLEAR! Even those tiny annoying little bumps that aren't pimples, but you can never seem to get rid of....they're gone! I will admit that I can get lazy after a long day of work and just use my makeup eraser (another monthly favorite) to do a quick clean. But I notice a huge difference in the morning of the ~glow factor~ of my skin if I use my night creams and serums. Invest in your skin care people!!!

2. Thrifting Books
In high school, I was not a "reader". Maybe it's because I hated being told what I had to read, so I refused to even open up the assigned reading books. Oops. But now, I read about 4-5 books a month. The key is to thrift your books!! I have a list of books I want to read on Amazon so that I can have an idea of the books I want to pick up if I see them at the thrift store. It saves me so much money, and I don't feel bad just reading them and re-donating! (If you don't like going to thrift stores, consider checking out thrifty book websites!)

This month I read: all three of the hunger games books, Eat Pray Love, and The Secret.

3. Dr. Scholl's Slip On Sneakers
If you didn't see my Atlanta vlog, then you would have missed seeing me gush about these shoes. I got these in April, but they've definitely been a staple in my May outfits. Since they're Dr. Scholl's, they are EXTREMELY comfortable. I work on my feet for 8-hour shifts, and although I still feel a little sore after, it's definitely minimized thanks to the inserts. My only comment to make on them is that they run a little big, so I'd go half a size down!

4. Show Me Your Mumu 'Fits
I'm basic and I don't care. I looooove all my SMYM pieces! Now that it's officially summertime, I get to start wearing my all-time favorite Carlos Shorts and patterned rompers. Not only are all of their pieces "wrinkle-proof", but they are so breezy and flowy. I personally hate tight constricting outfits so all of their bohemian-esque pieces are right up my alley. 

5. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
So maybe I'm not a "gamer girl", but I have been having a blast playing super smash bros with my boyfriend lately! I actually can stay on the screen for more than 30 seconds!! We've been crushing through the spirit board, and it's so fun to work as a team. It also has a certain level of nostalgia since my sister and I used to play this game at our cousins' house on their game cube when we were kids! 

I had a great month of May and can't wait to see what June has in store!!
