May Favorites!

Guys. It’s the end of May. Which means only two things, the first being that I have one week left of my freshman year of high school. It’s been a whirlwind but I have loved every second of it (big, reflective post to come). And of course, the end of another month means time for another edition of my monthly favorites. Here we go.

1. Francesca’s Earrings

Oh I wish I could find the link for these, because I am in love. My grandmother got me these lovely earring for Easter and I’ve worn them a ton. They remind me of the Kendra Scott statement earrings I’ve been lusting over, with the gold lining and opal-esque stones. Statement earrings are one of my new favorite pieces and I hope to incorporate them more into my outfits.

2. Low Charcoal Chuck Taylors

Random Side Note: Absolutely love all the clovers that pop up during springtime. This 
was taken outside my school and just shows how many we get here in KY. I love it!

 One of my immediate thoughts when writing this post was to include my Jack Rogers, but y’all have heard enough about those. My grey Converse are my go-to on the days where it’s a little cold or rainy out and my Jacks would not be appropriate. They’re so versatile, especially with a neutral like grey, and I wear them for just about any occasion. These are my third fourth pair of Converse, and I know I’ll continue to buy them.

3. Lilly Pulitzer’s Shape Up or Ship Out

But really have you seen this print? Because it is perfection. This nautical print is trés bon for the summer with anchors, rope, and bubbles. The light blue, navy, and white combination is so cute and could go with a lot of pops of bright colors. It’s my new monogrammed desktop background!

4. The Great Gatsby Kate Spade Notebook

Anyone who knows me (or follows me on Pinterest for that matter) knows that my obsession with The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and pretty much anything from the 1920s is strong. When I saw this $14 notebook on Kate Spade, I knew I needed it. I love notebooks, and I love filling them up with everything from school notes to doodles to quotes. This 112-page, college ruled notebook is perfect for me.

5. Silver Monogrammed Pendant

Just ask my mom, what’s the one thing I’ve been wanting for the longest time? A monogrammed necklace. So imagine my surprise when I found a silver monogrammed pendant I’ve apparently had for years. I’ve been making the most of my new discovery and wearing it all the time.

6. TweetDeleter

If you’re like me and you’ve had a Twitter for a long time (fifth grade in my case), you have quite a lot of old tweets. I set out to find a service where I could mass delete my tweets by time. did just that. When I deleted everything before late December of 2013, I was left with this:

It was great to clear out everything and make my Twitter account more current and less clutter-filled. Follow me here!

7. Passionfruit eos

As I said in my What's in my Purse post, I love all of my eos lip balms. This purple one is my current favorite. I got it in a gift bag from Mer back in February and I use it all the time. The smell/taste is so great and it's perfect when I need lip moisture in a pinch.

8. Stila Smudge Crayon Waterproof Eye Primer + Shadow + Liner

Well isn't that a mouthful. I stole borrowed this shadow stick from my mom and I'm in love. The champagne color is beautiful and super blendable. It stays all day like the name ensues and is waterproof, but is easy to take off with any basic makeup remover. This shadow is perfect for daily use and super easy to glide on your lids. Here I'm wearing it as a basic everyday shadow with elf Cream Liner in Coffee with benefit They're Real Mascara on top and Sephora brand Brown Mascara on the bottom.

9. Diet Snapple Peach Tea Powder Mix.

I'm on the go a lot, as y'all know, and sometime's it's hard to take a glass bottle of my favorite Snapple with me. These to-go packets are perfect for school, dance, or days like this weekend when I haven't had a chance to get tea at the store. They taste just like the real thing and are perfect in a pinch.

10. Iggy Azalea

Everyone has heard Iggy's smash hit "Fancy (feat. Charli XCX)" by this point. It's a great summer hit and the video is even better. The rest of her "The New Classic" album is just as good, featuring all kinds of summer jams. Her collaboration with Ariana Grande on Problem is great as well.

One week. I have one week left of my freshman year. May has flown by so fast, but we all know summer will pass us by even faster. So stick around, because I'll be making the most of it.
