My July Favorites!

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing my July Favorites with you! I”m still trying to use up stuff so I’m not really trying new items as much as I used to but I think a few of these you haven’t seen in awhile.


Oh, but I do have one NOT favorite. My poor little car is at the mechanic with a mystery problem. His check engine light came on along with two other lights regarding the VCS system (the system that stabilizes the car during turns, bumps, etc.) and the first attempt to fix it didn’t work. Basically the mechanic thinks it’s a wire leading from that system to the computer that’s failing so it thinks that the system is broken although it isn’t. So in order to try to keep me safe from a problem that doesn’t exist it is turning off the system and turning on lights on the dashboard. So now my little Bruce, also known as Baby Bat, is stuck living at the mechanic’s until further notice. (I’m writing this on Sunday so hopefully he’s back by Wednesday when this is scheduled to go up but WHO KNOWS.) This does lead to my first favorite though.


So technically this is my sister’s Ford Ranger named Olaf but my dad drives it now so I’ve been able to borrow him for a few days! I quite like driving a little truck around, I think it’s my new favorite thing. I have not-so-secret plans to move to Texas and I dream of driving a truck when I move. Now the truck is 2008 I think and not very modern at all with no CD thing and roll down windows but it’s super fun!


From this photo you’ll see a Beluga whale mug! This was from my sister for my birthday and I love it! She works and volunteers at an aquarium and she knows belugas are my favorite animals ever, hence why she got me a cute little mug with it.

Next is the Zoya Ayla Rose Quartz Roller. I’ve had a ton of fun using it randomly since I got it, so I’m including it in my favorites. I recently posted about it in my last haul post so I won’t go on too much more for it but it’s really refreshing to use as it’s naturally cool.

I’ve also been loving the the Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Muscle Gel which I featured in my Summer FabFitFun box post. I have been getting some weird back pain lately which I can’t figure out exactly why. Maybe my poor sitting posture? It’s probably that. It’s usually a sharp pain in my lower right lower back/waist area so I’ll take some of this gel and massage it on which helps a lot.

The next item is the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, which is a long time favorite. I’m considering purchasing a full one once I finish up a few foundations/etc. I have the travel one in Sand as the colors are limited but I’m sure I’d be a different shad in the full sizes.

There’s also the NYX Worth the Hype mascara. I’m sure that I have included it in a recent favorites but I really do enjoy this mascara so I figured I’d add it in again. I feel that it’s dark, does a great job of making my lashes look longer, and it doesn’t clump at all!

The Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream Creme fouettee is the nighttime moisturizer I’ve been reaching for the most. I actually keep this one on my vanity as it’s just really easy for me to forget to use it, so now I have it in plain sight before going to bed so I won’t forget! I do like to use more heavy nighttime moisturizers as opposed to wanting lightweight and fast absorbing daytime products so this one is great! It did take me some time to appreciate it though!

Next is the Honest Beauty Invisible Blurring Powder. I am honestly so surprised at how well this works! I have a small little sample from a recent Target beauty box, so it’s not actually that easy to use because the packaging is not as easy to get the product out, and when it finally does come out it’s a ton of product at once, but it’s useable and while it’s not my all time favorite I do think it’s my favorite drugstore translucent powder.

The last item is from my Spring FabFitFun box so clearly those items are a hit for me! I’m not even sponsored guys, I just really enjoy the box and that’s why I show so many of the items in them! It’s the Free People x Understated Leather Starry Eyed Travel Eye Mask. I’ve been having trouble falling asleep lately and I’ve found that a mask has helped. Even though my room is already quite dark, I think it’s just a comfort thing. It does have a cooling gel in it that you can put in the fridge but I always forget. Even though it hasn’t been in the fridge though, the gel is still naturally cool and really soothing.

So that’s my July favorites! What sort of products have you been loving recently? Let me know!

Thanks for reading!

    • Hahahaha I think there is!!!! 😂 My dad is a huge truck fan so it’s sorta rubbed off on me. A friend of mine loves trucks too and the other day said if she had one she could “put ladders in the back” and I pointed out that she didn’t even own a ladder. Then she said if she had a truck she could get one! Haha they’re just fun! And the face roller is fun but probably not the most useful thing haha!

    • No worries! You know I’m always catching up on yours so it’s only fair hahaha! He’s okay and home now! Something about a sensor going bad causing the lights to go off.
