monthly favorites: June edition!
Happy Friday friends! Martha and I thought it would be really fun to make these ‘monthly favorites’ a regular thing – where her and I both share some of our favorite purchases from the past month. Michael is even sharing some of his June favorites today too!

Baublebar statement earrings – Okay, you guys know how much I love tassel earrings…but these legit might be one of my favorite pair I’ve ever owned! I love that they make such a statement but still go with any outfit in your summer wardrobe. They’re also really lightweight which is surprising but 100% necessary IMO!
Free people denim jacket: If you follow me on instagram, you might be sick of hearing about this denim jacket by now haha but it is THAT GOOD. First of all it’s the perfect wash – not too light, not too dark. But my favorite thing about it is that it’s not restrictive at all! The denim material is actually really soft so it’s a jacket you can travel in and be super comfortable. Believe me when I say, every girl needs this denim jacket in her life. You will thank me later.
First Aid Beauty priming moisturizer: The holy grail of all primers! This primer will blur your imperfections and give your skin the most gorgeous glow – whether you wear it alone or under your foundation. This primer is formulated with superfood ingredients that are rich in vital proteins, so you are actually getting skincare and makeup all in one with this primer. The best $28 you can spend IMO!
Paula’s Choice pore-reducing toner: Up until I found this toner, I didn’t use a toner in my skincare routine, because I couldn’t find one without all of the drying alcohols or harmful ingredients. This toner though is fragrant free and free from harmful ingredients and has been a game changer in my skincare routine. I apply it morning and night after cleansing and it helps to reduce poor size, has anti-aging benefits, and it’s moisturizing all at the same time. It will also help remove any lace traces of makeup you didn’t get off from cleansing!
No Cow protein bar: I discovered these bars last weekend at Wanderlust and fell in LOVE. First of all, they taste amazing. But what I really love about them is that they have 20g of plant based protein, they are dairy free + gluten free, and high in fiber! Definitely a new favorite protein bar for me!
Martha’s June Favorites:
Lancome Mascara + Primer: Okay y’all, this combination is unreal and will give you such long, natural-looking lashes. I was at my friend’s house a few weeks ago and she seriously didn’t believe when I told I don’t have eyelash extensions. It’s that good! I love that it makes it so easy to go without eyeliner, too. The primer goes on so lightly (not goopy or thick), making it easy for the mascara to glide on and elongate your lashes. Don’t believe me? Go read the thousands of reviews online!
Ouai Volume Spray: Sadly I have not been blessed with naturally voluminous hair. Also sadly, I’ve found that a lot of voluming products leave your hair kind of tacky and straw-like, ya know what I mean? But not this stuff. Just a few spritzes on the roots will give you an instant lift! I love using it on freshly washed hair cause that’s usually when I need the most help with volume. Bonus: it smells amazing! I also love their wave spray on days I don’t blow dry and curl my hair.
Skin Pharm Clarifying Toner Pads: I can’t exaggerate how much I love these and how much of an absolute game changer they’ve been for my skin. They’re gentle but effective and I use them morning + night. My skin went on the fritz earlier this year (it was bad, y’all) and I think these are a huge reason why I’m back to being breakout-free. You can order them at Skin Pharm and they’ll ship them to you! Another June favorite thing: all the skincare videos and content my dermatologist Carly puts out on instagram (@carlysmith_np). She knows her stuff and she’s just adorable!
Madewell Tank: Basically I could make an entire collage of Madewell things for a monthly favorites, tbh. I love all of their basics and this tank is one I’ve been loving this summer! I love that it has a higher neckline and you never have to worry about your bra showing. I recommend sizing up if in between sizes!
Barefoot Dreams Robe: I think when Lauren shared this robe (on sale!) on Instagram stories, I ordered it about 37 seconds later. If you’ve ever owned anything by this brand, you know it’s SO soft and just on another level. In fact, I’m sitting at a coffee shop right now writing this and all I can think is “omg I just wanna go home and put on my robe” lol it’s SO cozy and makes for a great gift too!
Hourglass Blush: I bought this two weeks ago and I have fallen in love with it! I love that the tiniest bit goes a long way. The pigment is so perfect for summer and I am obsessed with the highlighter that’s mixed in with it, too. I love using makeup that gives you a glowy look in the summer without being shiny/oily, and this blush does just that!
Capri Blue Candle: If Anthro ever starts a candle subscription service, I’ll be the first to sign up. Seriously these are my favorite! They’re subtle and just give the best aroma to any room. ‘Aloha Orchid’ is my all-time favorite scent. I have at least two of these in every room in our house and I light them every day! They’re great as home decor and gifts, too. And this one is only $14!
