Aaaaand... it's officially summer here in Taiwan and I couldn't be happier. Yes, I complain about the heat and humidity a lot, but I still prefer that over the winter. This weekend, I'll pack away my jeans and leggings for good, and from here on out it will be only summer dresses and shorts for me.
Here are my favorites from the past month:
1. Revlon Scented Nail Polish in "Gumdrop"
Isn't this the most beautiful nail polish color for spring? And, it smells so good, too! The only downside to this polish is that I literally had to apply four coats to make it completely opaque. But, I love the result so much that I don't mind spending that much time on my nails.
2. TOMS Earthwise Vegan Classic
I love TOMS, and the two pairs I own have become a little bit worn out after 2 years, so I decided to get a new pair. I love these grey ones I got from the Earthwise collection. I don't have to say much about these shoes. Everyone who owns a pair love them, as they are super comfortable, light and look good with shorts or jeans or anything basically.
3. Rimmel Kate Matte lipstick in "110"
Since my braces came off last year, I've been buying lipstick like a crazy person. I love all the bright colors and I'm finally not self-conscious about drawing attention to my teeth. I've been looking for a nice matte bright red lipstick and read some good reviews about this one online. I bought it from feelunique.com, one of my favorite online shopping sites for makeup, and I'm really impressed with it.
4. Miss Dior Cherie Blooming Bouquet
Yes, I know, I really didn't need another bottle of perfume, but I just can't resist buying more. I got this one last month and have been wearing it a lot. It's such a nice spring fragrance and the bottle is so cute and girly!
5. Lonely Planet "Paris"
The Boyfriend and I will go to Paris in July, and as you can imagine, I'm so freakin' excited! I love organizing our trips and planning our itineraries, and I've been pouring over this Lonely Planet "Paris" almost every day for the past month. We love the Lonely Planet series and always buy a book before we travel. I'd definitely recommend it! Their website is wonderful, too.
6. Boater hat
I don't wear hats often, but I want to. I got this boater hat from Ebay a couple of months ago, and even though I haven't worn it out, I love using it as decor in my apartment at the moment, as it looks really pretty on my coat rack.
I hope all of you have had a great month. Are there any products or items that you've loved in May?
