July Favorites - Honestly Hannah

July Favorites

Hi lovelies! Okay, I'm basically in denial that it's already August. June and July completely flew by, and I'm already about a month away from starting my second year of college... Like what?! I swear time is going by so quickly. Summer has been wonderful thus far, and even though I've been working and doing my internships, I feel like I've had a lot of time to just relax and do things that I want to do. I've learned so much from my first few months of blogging and my summer internships. I truly cannot even express how grateful I am to have been able to do multiple internships this summer and work with some AMAZING people. I've learned more these last few months than I ever thought possible and I'm so blessed. Anyways, I will do a complete summer reflection later SO without further ado, let's get into some July favorites before I keep rambling!

I actually purchased this mascara way before July, but I've just recently started using this mascara and I'm so impressed! I've always been a lover of L'Oreal mascaras, and I do still love them, but this mascara is fabulous as well. If you love super voluminous and long lashes, you will love this mascara too! You don't even need multiple coats to get a good amount of volume. I'm almost out of this product at this point, so I'll be repurchasing soon for sure!

This is another product that I've had for quite some time, but I've recently started using on a daily basis. I'm always applying body lotion, but I'm extra diligent about it in the summertime. I feel like my skin just doesn't feel good if I haven't applied body lotion after showering in the morning. I absolutely LOVE the scent of this lotion. I loved the smell of the lotion so much that I actually ended up purchasing the body spray!

I love drinking tea before I go to sleep. I feel like it always helps me to relax and wind down. I've been loving this tea by Celestial Seasonings because it's meant to help calm your body and get you ready for sleep. Drinking this tea has definitely become part of my nightly routine. 

There was a period of time when I was getting gel nails every few weeks. It didn't take me long to realize that this was an extremely expensive practice. Why spend a ton of money of manicures when you can basically get the same results at home? It's taken me awhile to find products that really keep polish on for a long time, but I think I've finally found the best of the best. I recently discovered this base/top coat when I was in a pinch and just grabbed one off the shelf in the drugstore. I figured "hey, this will do for now." I ended up LOVING this as a base coat. I still use my Seche Vite Quick-Dry top coat, because it's my holy grail, but the Sally Hansen Double Duty is now my holy grail base coat. I haven't actually tried it as a top coat yet, but I'm sure it's great for that as well. I'm not kidding when I say my manicure will last almost 2 whole weeks with this stuff. I usually end up taking off my polish at that point because I find that my nails start to grow out. After almost 2 weeks though, there still isn't a single chip. 

This is my new favorite summer perfume! I absolutely love the fresh and feminine scent of this perfume. I'm awful at describing scents, so I would just head to Sephora.com and read the scent description yourself. Trust me, it smells so lovely! I've always been into heavier scents, but this summer I've found myself reaching for Bright Crystal almost everyday. My bottle will soon be empty, so there's another product that I'm definitely going to be repurchasing!

I know this one is random, but I'm in love with this sleep mask. I started using a sleep mask during my first year of college, as my roommate and I were sort of on different sleep schedules. This one actually came with one of the Victoria's Secret pajama sets (which I did not get for the sleep mask), but since it came with the mask, I decided I'd give it a go. I'm so glad I did because I basically cannot fall asleep without this now! It's so soft and I honestly think it helps me get to sleep faster.
