May Favorites

May Favorites(1)Hello again!  Welcome back for a few of my May Favorites.  The weather is warm. Colors are softer and remind us of summer.  We actually had our first beach day last weekend!

Vilano BeachThis is Vilano Beach in St. Augustine, FL.  It is the only beach near us that you can actually drive on.

Vilano Beach (2)Not a cloud in the sky!  Just a beautiful day.

Beach ReadingMy summer reading tends to aim toward island or beach novels.  You know light reading that takes you away to exotic places.  Two of my favorites this month were:

Island Girls by Nancy Thayer – This novel takes you to the island of Nantucket where their father’s will stipulates that three sisters are forced to live together for the summer.  Should they make it through the summer, they will inherit the very upper-class Nantucket home.  The sisters come from three different marriages.  As they navigate through years of misunderstandings, resentments and jealousies, the sisters become friends.  It would not  be a beach read if it didn’t include new love!

The Last Girls by Lee Smith – It was the year 1965 when a dozen college friends embark down the Mississippi on a Huck Finn-inspired homemade raft.  Thirty-five years later four of those women reunite to board the luxury steamboat The Belle of Natchez.  The purpose of this cruise down the Mississippi is to spread the ashes of a fifth friend.  It is a story of women coming of age, navigating their lives as they navigate the alluring river.  Four woman escaping their everyday lives, only to discover themselves by revisiting the past.

Sinful Colors in #947 Mint Apple – This is one of my favorite polish for my toes.  It reminds me of the color of the waters in the Caribbean.  It is a beautiful blue-green with a hint of shimmer.  It is only $2 at Walmart!

Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion – I received this in February Ipsy Glam Bag.  This tiny sample is now empty, which is very sad because this is an amazing exfoliator.  I savored this tiny tube.  As a matter of fact, it was a February Favorite too!  This product deep cleans and refines pores.  It is $58 for a 2 oz. tube on Ulta’s website.

Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse – I wrote a separate blog post about this “dream” foundation.  I bought the Nude Beige.  I searched until I found a foundation that matched my skin tone, didn’t sink into my fine lines, gave a full coverage and didn’t look oily on my skin.  I am so happy with this one!!  It has received Allure’s Best in Beauty Award!!  It is $7.59 on  Plus, you get 5% off for using your Target RedCard!

NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler – This is a vibrant orange-red medium coverage lip gloss that is not too sticky.  Love this color for summer!
