May Favorites

{spring has sprung!}

How is it June already? I’m so excited to get an early start on summer, and lots of exciting things are happening for me this month (including a new hair cut, hint hint: weasley’s). What are you looking forward to most this month? Leave me a comment so I can catch up with you guys 🙂

I’ve got tons of awesome favorites I’m sharing today and questions for you guys so let’s get started. Thanks for reading, you guys are the best! 

I shared about this swimsuit on Instagram a while back and it finally got warm enough for me to wear. It’s really comfortable and I love (love) the colors. I paired with a pair of black high waisted bikini bottoms, but they’d look cute with a bright pink bottom as well.

I used this mascara by Maybelline while swim3ming laps and it holds up really well and doesn’t flake off. It only lengthens which is fine and I had to separate the lashes a little bit, but otherwise it was marvelous (and cheap!).

Ever since October, my makeup essentials have slowing been dwindling down. I’m almost out of all of my products (like, all of them) which means I have to get new products including a new highlighter and foundation. I got a sample of this highlighter, in the mail and it’s phenomenal! I love that it’s a stick, so it’s really easy to apply. I also received some of Tarte’s foundation which as awesome! I love Tarte and their products always have great quality. If you guys have any suggestions for new makeup, let me know (tweet, snap, or comment 🙂 )

These shoes have been on repeat the past few weeks, I’m sharing an outfit with them next week! They’re 4 inches but the heel is a little chunkier, which is great since they’re not as uncomfortable as most 4 inch heels.

I have been loving Spotify’s “Discover Weekly” playlist lately, especially this weeks. I’m digging “Colorful World” by Shayna Rose, “Little Do You Know” by Alex & Sierra, and “Go” by Grant Terry.

Tory Burch is one of my favorite designers, and I love this bag I got a few weeks ago. It’s seems really small compared to my tote and MK cross body, but it works perfectly for a quick trip. It fits my phone, a (super) small wallet, and some lipstick.

I’m thinking about doing some snapchat-exclusive reviews/videos, what do you guys think? I have so many followers there so I think a lot of ya’ll would really like it, and it’s really easy to quickly upload a video or pic. Comment below if you would be interested in that! My username is @rainydaycooking, I guess that’d be pretty important, lol!

I got some spring clothes from H&M and am obsessing over this hat (I got tan and a medium size, although the M is a little big because my head is the size of a grapefruit 😂) and I love the pattern of this shirt. BUT! I went a size up and got a 2, and it’s SO SO small. I can’t even believe how small it is. It clearly isn’t made for any with boobs or a head (and I have a small head, see sentence above. Like it barely fit over my head and the zipper for the shirt was like 4 inches from actually being able to zip closed. I’m pretty sad because it’s so cute, too! The pattern and crop top would’ve looked so pretty with white jeans.

Have any of you lovely readers tried any Colourpop Ultra Matte lipsticks? I would love to try a few but not sure what lip colors I should get? Comment below or snap me pics of your favorite! I love the look of Ouji and Avenue, they look so pretty for spring!
