June Favorites 2012

It's Favorites time again! How was everyone's month? I had, by far, the busiest month so far this year. Apart from wrapping up the semester at work, I've also been planning our summer trip and getting all my documents ready for the visas I'll need for going to Europe and Dubai. What a headache that was! Also, I had to get dental surgery... again. But, the weather has been nice recently and I'm really starting to get into vacation mode. Only one month to go!

So, let's jump into my favorites for the month of June, shall we?

I'm sure many of you have read The Secret or have at least seen the documentary? I had high expectations for The Magic, the follow-up, and it definitely didn't disappoint. The Magic is about being thankful for everything and everyone you have in your life, and the more gratitude you show, the more blessings you will receive. I just love this! I have so many blessings, and this book has really helped me to be more aware of them, and to truly appreciate it and to be more thankful.

I wasn't familiar with the brand, Elite Paris, when I bought this blush a few weeks ago. I was curious to try it and I've been wearing it almost every single day. It's a great powder blush, and it's very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. I got it at a local drugstore here in Taipei, and unfortunately I'm not sure where else this brand is sold.

I purchased this pair of white Converse more than three years ago, and only wore it a couple of times until it was pushed to the back of my closet. But this summer I decided to give them another chance, and I totally love it. I walk a lot, and teach at an elementary school, so it's perfect.

I've been using my St. Ives Apricot body scrub more often, because I wear shorts every single day. I love the healthy glow it gives my skin after using it, and it smells great.

This month, I've been all about floral shorts. I'm a big fan of the floral print trend, and can't wait to stock up on some more pieces. This pair is from Alice + Olivia. Isn't it cute?

Girls, I think I've found the perfect lipstick. I bought the YSL Rouge Volupte a few months ago with summer in mind. Finally, I've been able to wear it and it's such a fantastic product. It goes on smoothly, stays on for hours, and it doesn't smell funky. (Which I can't stand in a lot of lipsticks.)

What have you been loving this past month?

Have you entered my Michael Kors GIVEAWAY?


  1. I didn't know "The Secret" had a sequel. I think I started to read that book a while ago but never finished it. Maybe I should pick it up again. And I love the floral shorts!

  2. I like the converse shoes combined with the pants.. It will look nice & sporty.. Combined with that soft lipstick color..
