I do have to say that I am devastated at what’s going on in the world right now. This May Favourites post was written well before the #BlackLivesMatter movement so I just wanted to come in and add a few words. I’m not black, I’m white privileged but that doesn’t mean my heart breaks for all the black lives. During this time, I’ve been educating myself as much as I can and donating what I can, signing petitions, etc. I know we can do better!
Well May went by just as fast as April did. Quarantine is probably never going to end. At least in Michigan we are able to be in small groups while practicing social distancing. By the time this all ends, I will have probably watched every show and movie I have wanted to see. This month’s favourites has some beauty products but it’s mostly tv shows and a book. Here are my May favourites.
Counter+ All Bright C Serum
This serum has 2 different types of vitamin c to create a 10% potency. It also contains turmeric and camu camu extracts. It helps reduce dark spots and protect against new ones and environmental stressors. I’ve been using this since the end of April and my skin is so much brighter!
Anne With An E
So this show really should’ve been in my April favourites but I technically didn’t finish the last episode until May 1. I love Anne of Green Gables and this show has been in my watch list since it first aired. This show is so cute and also so funny. So many feels towards this show.
Yaayaa Natural Shea Butter
My best friend, Nicole, has started her own shea butter company. She kindly sent me a couple different jars. It has a whipped texture and is super moisturizing, My favourite scent in the geranium. If you are looking to support a black owned business, please consider YaaYaa.
This is the last book in the Red Queen series. I’m honestly embarrassed at how long it took me to read it. 2 months!!! I used to be the girl who could easily read 60+ books a year. April was when I wanted to finish it but that didn’t happen. When I started it, I honestly had no clue how the book was going to end but I really did enjoy the ending.
Normal People is a mini series on Hulu. It’s based off the book by Sally Rooney. The series follows Marianne and Connell from high school all the way to post college. They have an on again, off again relationship the entire time. And even when they aren’t together and are with other people, they are still best friends.
Well I finally watched You. My god this show is crazy. Joe is insane. I liked the first season better than the second season. I’m not a big fan of Love. And speaking of Love, she’s crazy too. Beck is so much better than Love. If Joe was a normal person, I would totally ship him and Beck together.
I have lots of issues with nail polish and my nails. Normally when I paint my nails they chip right away and they also leave them super dry and brittle. I discovered this brand in a Facebook group when someone was asking about a clean nail polishes. This one was mentioned by basically everyone. And many of the commenters had mentioned the same issue with drying nails like I have and how this brand doesn’t do it. This brand is basically like a gel polish and lasts between 7-14 days. Mine seem to last between the 7 to 14 days and when I take the polish off, my nails still look healthy!
What have you been loving in May?
