The first month of summer will be over by tomorrow, and what a month it was! Work has been super busy in June (due to exams), but now I can enjoy a nice, long summer holiday. The weather has been really nice in June as well, though it appears to get a bit colder next week. But enough about that, let’s talk about some June favourites.
Silver ankle bracelet: I’m a bit unsure whether I have featured this ankle bracelet in a favourites post before or not, but I think not. I’ve had it between 10-15 years, and I still get a lot of wear out of it every summer.
White belt w. pearl buckle: This has been my go-to belt this past month. The pearl buckle is so pretty, and it just adds a little extra something to any outfit.
L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer full coverage concealer (shade: 322 Ivory): I did a first impressions post on this concealer recently, and as I wrote in that post, this is a great full coverage drugstore concealer. I’ve had a lot of breakouts lately (probably because I’ve been so busy at work), and this concealer does such a great job covering them up.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle highlighter (shade: Fire Crystal): I’ve been really into very intense highlighters lately (I just want to glow!), and the Fire Crystal shade from this Fenty Beauty highlighter duo has been one of my go-tos.
MAC Prep+Prime Fix+ (cherry blossom scent): I’ve featured the original Fix+ in a favourites post three years ago, and I still use that all the time, but more recently I’ve been using the cherry blossom scented one from the Boom Boom Bloom collection. It’s so refreshing and it smells incredible.
I hadn’t ordered anything from Bershka in a really long time, but I’m really happy with all the summery pieces I got from them last summer, so I decided to check out their website, and I found som really cute pieces.
Isn’t this the cutest little daisy print top, you’ve ever seen! I wore this top yesterday, and I loved the sleeves and the neckline. I can’t wait to wear it again.
Bershka makes a lot of cute, summery crop tops, and this one is no exception.
I thought this gingham top was so cute that I purchased both the black and the blue version.
You probably know by now that I can’t resist clothing with Disney print. I wore the Maleficent T-shirt the other day, and I loved it! The green and purple colours are awesome. The Lion King T-shirt was just too cute to pass, and the white T-shirt with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy was adorable too.
I love midi skirts, so I added these two slip skirts to my midi skirt collection. I think they’re so fun and summery.
Lastly, I got this pink linen midi skirt with a side slit. It’s such a flattering skirt, and I can’t wait to style this in a bunch of different ways.
Here’s what I wore Thursday June 6. I wore this skirt quite a bit last summer, and I was excited about wearing it again. I felt a bit like a casual ’50s housewife in this outfit.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday June 5. The weather finally got more summery in June, so this will be the first of many summer outfits to come.

When Beautybay had a sale recently, I obviously had to get a ‘few’ things. I got two more Velour liquid lipsticks from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Holiday 2018 collection. I picked up the shades Jeffree Who? and Can’t Relate, and I love both shades. I also picked up three more of the Velour lip liners; the shades are Allegedly, Androgyny, and Dominatrix. Then I picked up a couple of eye shadow palettes; I got another Wet n Wild palette which is a neutral palette called Nude Awakening, and then I had to get the Sola Look Flashdance palette. I mean, how cute is that packaging! From Wet n Wild I also picked up the Photofocus pressed powder in Warm Light, and I added two more Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows (Wanderlust + Enchantress) to my collection. Last but not least, I got the Ofra highlighter in the shade Glazed Donut (made in collaboration with NikkieTutorials), and it is blinding!
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love the simplicity of this make-up look. I should wear a wash of colour on the eyelids paired with a nude lip more often.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday May 29. Bright teal/turquoise and navy is a newer colour combo that I’m loving, and I decided to go all out with that colour combo when putting together this outfit.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Another eye look using the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Alien palette. It was the perfect palette to use with my green and purple outfit.

I decided to put the L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer full coverage concealer to the test, and here are my first impressions.
It has a very big doe-foot applicator similarly to the Revolution Conceal & Define concealer, but it’s easy to use. The concealer blends very easily when applied with a damp sponge, and it’s full coverage just as the product claims. It has quite a strong scent (though not necessarily a bad scent) that I was quite aware of at first, but it goes away after a little while. I applied the concealer at around 7:30 AM, and right before I removed it after 10 hours of wear, it still looked really good. I hadn’t creased though I did set it with powder. The concealer was really easy to remove with micellar cleasing water, and all in all I’m really impressed with this product. So if you’re looking for a really good full coverage concealer from the drugstore, this is a great option.
