It’s official JULY!!
July is one of my favorite months because I LOVE summer, fireworks, being at the lake, and … Presents!! Ha-ha! Yes, It’s officially my BIRTHDAY month!! Whoohoo?
My July obsessions are all geared for summer and sunshine!
Two of these products I actually probably never would have tried if it weren’t for my Fab Fit Fun subscription. Check out my review: Fab Fit Fun for the Every Day Girl if you haven’t! That’s really what I enjoy most about this subscription, it introduces me to products I normally would pass over.
My first July obsession is a perfect example…
COOLA Make Up Setting Spray:
Without Fab Fit Fun I probably would’ve never tried this product if it wasn’t in my summer box. I’m SO happy it was because I’m OBSESSED! It’s my new summer finishing spray.
I love everything about this product, especially the fact that it’s a finishing spray with extra protection for the summer! It has SPF 30 for a little more added protection. I like the smell, packaging, effectiveness, everything. Funny, after I started using this the past few weeks, I’m starting to see it more often too. It was the featured skin care SPF line at the 5 star spa I just visited in Vegas. This brand is growing and growing a great reputation, now I know why. Love it for Summer!
Another one from my summer Fab, Fit, Fun box:
Grace & Stella Spray All Day, Rose Hydrating Facial Spray:
Now to be honest, a hydrating facial spray to me in the past was something I would never think of spending my extra money on. This is why I enjoy the subscription because it introduces me to products I would’ve otherwise passed up. I would’ve never thought I would “need” or care for a facial spray, I used to think it was a waste of money. Until I gave this one a shot.
Now for summer, I have definitely jumped on the facial spray train, especially with this one being ROSE! Ummm…. yes please!
There are so many unknown factors here that I didn’t realize before trying this. I like a matted complete look, so I used to not think SPRAYING a hydrating mist on my face would help with this look. It does!
Rosewater actually HELPS maintain the skins PH level and control oil. It also has an anti-inflammatory agent that can help in so many factors and it helps naturally TONE your skin. I love how light this one is. I really love the smell! If you haven’t check out the benefits of a hydrating spray, rose particularly please do! This one is worth it for your summer skin! Very impressed.
BOBBI BROWN NUDE DRAMA Eye Pallet:
I need another eye make up pallet like I need another pair of shoes, or another aspect of responsibility in my life, seriously. 😉 lol.
I couldn’t even count how many pallets I’ve got in my possession. It seems though every pallet is always missing one thing for me. When it comes to my everyday basic look without SPICING it up with some change, my pallet seems to always miss on color I need so I tend to carry or use more than one every day. Until now, or at least until one date night I want to SPICE it up and change my eye make up for the night. I went to Vegas last week and it was nice this was the ONLY pallet I traveled with or used. For a light look, or a dramatic smoke eye I was able to operate and utilize just this pallet. So as much as I didn’t NEED another pallet in my life, I couldn’t resist not picking this one up when walking by and I’m glad I did! I love the shimmers, the nude tones, and the dramatic crease colors Bobbi Brown offers in this nude pallet. My new go-to pallet to finish out the summer.
Everyday Bible Promises for Women:
I’ve actually had this over two years now. I keep it in my purse or in my car. I pull it out when I need and refer to it for so many reasons. For a good prayer, to change my mind set, lift my spirits, or when I’m down and need advice. I remember a social media friend commenting not to long ago how lucky I am, but see sometimes what you don’t see is people’s problems. I choose not to share mine on social media or with may, I don’t think that’s the place for them, and I also have a horrible habit of holding a lot of things in and dealing with things internally, it takes a lot for me to trust.
Most of the time I don’t even tell the closest people in my life, it’s just how I deal with things. Things aren’t always what they appear, everyone has their problems, and not until this morning when I went to go pull this out while I waited in the bank line to make my work deposits did I realize I haven’t shared this little tool of mine yet.
This little pocket book is a great reference and has helped me more times than I can count. Even if God isn’t your thing, have a pocket book of inspiration quotes, something! Something that you can reference when you need, something that will help lift you when need. A quick pick me up reference to lift you or support you and offer sound advice or thought. This has been mine, and honestly I’ve probably read the chapters in this one several times each over and over through the past two years. It maybe time for a new one but I’ve really enjoyed the help this one has brought to me so wanted to share this find.
There you have it my July Obsessions!
I hope you find something that can bring a little more SPARKLE, SPICE, or STRENGTH into your July! I will leave thess in my side bar all month for a quick reference. Here are the direct links if you wanted to give one a try!
If you do end up giving one of these July obsessions a try let me know your thoughts! Even if you are already a user, I’d love to hear if you enjoy them as much as I do.
HAPPY JULY MOM QUEENS!
