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.
