may favorites

May has been a beautiful month- the weather has finally warmed up and it’s been so nice to enjoy the outdoors! Also June is just around the corner which means the school year is coming to an end. light at the end of the tunnel…it feels great, especially after such a brutal winter. Here’s to many more days of warmth and sunshine:)

Here are my favs for the month of May!

Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion:

This is an extremely mild acid/exfoliating toner which I like to use before my hydrating toner.  It contains 0.5% salicylic acid and has a ph of 2.9- making it one of the stronger exfoliating acis out there, while being gentle enough to use every night, as I do. The best part is that it’s alcohol-free.

Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel:


I have recently been experiencing some random breakouts and this gel has been a savior in keeping my skin calm and has helped keep the redness and irritation at a minimum. Clinique never disappoints and is the one brand that knows hows to keep it simple. When your skin craves basic care without the bells and whistles, this is my go to skincare.

benefit roller lash:


This has quickly become the mascara I reach for constantly. It lengthens and curls my lashes like no other mascara has. I highly recommend this for those of us who already have long lashes and are looking for a curling effect.

nutri bullet:

This past month I’ve really been enjoying having smoothies for breakfast using the nutria bullet. My favorite combination is greek yogurt, unsweetened almond milk, frozen or fresh blueberries, honey and lots of ice!


I hadn’t gone to the movies to see a bollywood film in a long time and this was worth the wait. This is a touching story of the love between a father and daughter. The actors really make this movie memorable. Don’t forget to have some tissues nearby though, because it definitely tugs at your heart strings:)

What have your favs been this month??
