May Must Haves

Getting PersonalPosted by Gaetana Friday, June 08 2018 06:48AM
June is finally here and it's time for yet another favorites. I confess, I haven't done one in a while since I'm a creature of nature and sometimes use the same product over and over again. But recently I've switched things up. Some I've hated and some I've been loving. So May's Must Haves feature a mix of everything like usual from stationery to beauty. No hair care this month since like I said I'm a creature of habit.

Let's first talk about my traveler's notebook. It's from Mystic Little Gifts and she's a pocket TN in the color Bare Naked. I got her in the month of either April or May in a mystery grab bag and when she arrived I wasn't too hot on the color because I had my heart set on another. But over a couple of days I grew to love here. Number one, the color. It's the prettiest shade of peach with some pinky and brown undertones. Number 2, it's the most softest leather ever. Number 3, it's so floppy. I remember a while back I made myself a TN in personal size and peach but had to throw it away because when I bought the fabric it was damaged and I couldn't love it. I absolutely love this TN and can't wait to get this color in ring bound A6. The craftsmanship is like no other at Mystic Little Gifts. I highly recommend her website. This is my second and I"m hooked.

I'm always getting random bits of makeup from my sister since she's a makeup artist and won't let her sister walk around looking like a fool. One day she noticed my current bronzer and contour I was using wasn't showing up. She literally pushed this palette in my hands and I've been using it since. It's the Contour Effects from City Color. You might be able to find them in your local beauty supply, 5 and Below and etc.
It features a highlight, bronzer and a contour shade. As you can see I use the bronzer and contourer the most. The bronzer warms up my skin nicely and the contour adds more dimension. I highly recommend it. Not only is it super affordable, around $5 and is super pigmented. $6.99 on the City Color website.

I told you I get random pieces of makeup from my sister. One day she came home and just gave this to me. I was like what is this and she said for you. If I remember correctly they either had it on sale or they were having their Garage Sale at MAC and she snagged this highlighter in Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skin Finish. The highlighter is nice but I really wanted the packaging. It's gorgeous as you can see. It's a rosey gold tone with a crackle finish.
This highlighter has been around for ages but it got repackaged for the holiday collection and features a cute snowflake pressed into it. I've been using this nonstop and it has push my coveted highlighter from the StarTrek collection out of the way. It's the prettiest gold shade. Not too brassy and not too cool.Definitely a must in a makeup collection.


All through winter I was wearing peachy tone blushes to keep some color in my cheeks but now that it was spring I switched to a pink. I've had this blush from Milani for ages and have been reaching for it every day. It's Rose D'Oro Baked Power Blush.
It's the prettiest shade of pink with some gold flex in it. It gives you a refreshed look. Not like a disco ball as you would think from the gold flex. A must in a opinion in any makeup collection.

As you can tell I'm obsessed with anything rose gold and that extends into stationery too. I got this book set a while back from the Target Dollar Spot because it has rose gold on the binding but what I didn't know was the paper I was going to fall in love with. This one features grid paper which is my favorite paper to write on.
The paper is a dream to write on and my pens just glide over the paper. Plus it's an added bonus that they grid lines is pink. But the only bad thing about this is I haven't seen it since in Target.Which sucks. If you see the book set definitely jump on it. You won't regret it.
I'm a sucker for pretty packaging. So when I saw Nicki Minaji was having yet another collection with MAC. I was like I need at least one shade. First off the packaging is a rosy gold tone. L-O-V-E. She had a couple of shades to the collection but I'm a more peachy tone person so I gravitated toward that one.
This one I got was Nicki's Nude which is described on the MAC's website as a soft corally pink. It's so pretty. I normally team it with Whirl lip liner and I'm good to go.
I love TheHoneyBShop because number 1 she's amazing. Number 2 her stickers are so unique. Number 3 the paper quality is amazing. Too many shops are doing the same tired thing and she keeps it's all original. This is her Shop Owner Sticker sheet but I can't seem to find it. I had Cut, Print and something else on the sheet. As you can see I have one more left so I'm in desperate need of more ASAP.
This next sticker sheet is from Chic Planner Gal and this is the Routine Ish! sheet. I normally use these when I have a super busy day and I just list everything I have to for the day underneath this sticker. Her sticker quality is amazing. Her shop not only carries stickers, die cuts but planner accessories too. She's also a black owned business and girl boss. I highly recommend her shop.

This last sticker sheets I'm loving is from The CraftyStudentxo. I believe she is a newer shop on Etsy and I found her through the NYC Planner Addicts. She was having an amazing sale and I snatched up a butch of her sheets. Number 1, I love her sticker assortment she carries in her shop. Number 2, her paper quality is amazing. Number 3, she's so affordable and because she's a fellow NYer it came super quick. If I wasn't on a no spend I would buy up so much more. I purchased her Mini 3 Heart Checklists in colorful and nude and as you can see I'm loving them. I use them in my business planner and in my personal planner. I need a truck load of these for real. I highly recommend her shop. You'll be thanking me later.

So that's everything . Whew! So what have you dolls been loving? Do share, I'm always on the lookout for new products to try.
