Hey guys! I hope your Sunday is going as well as mine, blogging and watching the Harry Potter marathon. Did anyone pick up the new book today? Unfortunately I couldn't go and get it today but hopefully tomorrow! Anyway, it's favorites time. I feel like I haven't done one of these in so long because my heart just hasn't been in it, but I'm slowly finding my motivation again.

First up, this pink Zara faux leather jacket. I've become absolutely obsessed with the color pink lately and I keep buying more and more clothing in this pale pink color. I think this is such a cute and fun piece and although it's a bit hot for it right now, unfortunately the cold weather will be back before you know it. I got mine in a size large because I didn't want it to be too tight of a fit and I think it's perfect. They also sell it in blue and yellow.

Another thing that I actually discovered quite a while ago but never mentioned is the Motto Sparkling Matcha Tea drinks. This is literally the best drink I've ever had and if you're a matcha lover, you absolutely have to try it. I know matcha can be quite bitter but they've made it sweet and carbonated and it feels like you're drinking soda but healthy. Unfortunately if you don't live in America you might not be able to find it, but if you check your local health food store they might have it or might be able to order it for you. I've gotten to the point where they literally order it for me by the case (LOL).

Next up, these patches from Ball and Chain Co. They have some of the best patches I've come across and I'm starting a new custom denim jacket with more grunge style patches and these are going to be such a nice addition. I'm not sure if all of these are in stock at the moment but they have so many other amazing ones as well. Next, I read Me Before You at the end of June and absolutely loved it. It's definitely one of those books that you don't want to put down and it's just such a lovely and heartbreaking story. I don't want to go too in depth because I'm thinking about doing a book related post sometime soon. I've started reading the sequel, After You, and I'm loving that so far as well, and I still need to see the movie!

My last two things are beauty products - first, the Diorskin Airflash Foundation. Funny story, I was in Vegas last week and realized I completely forgot to bring foundation with me (of all things, right?) but luckily my friend works at Sephora and always has tons of extra makeup that they give her for free. She happened to have this one that matches me perfectly and I absolutely fell in love with it. I've never used a spray foundation before or really any designer makeup, but you just spray a bit on your makeup brush and apply it as you normally would and it provides a really flawless finish and almost feels like you aren't wearing makeup. The only downside to me is that Dior isn't cruelty free so unfortunately I don't think I would repurchase, but I will enjoy using it in the meantime.

Last but not least, the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade Baci. I don't usually gravitate toward lipsticks that are too pink, but I thought this was a really lovely purplely-pink shade and it matches with all kinds of different looks. It feels really comfortable on the lips and I went out in Vegas all night and didn't have to reapply, so I think we have a keeper! If you managed to read all that I commend you, let me know if you've tried any of these and what you've been loving lately!

  1. I love Stila Baci as well! I need to wear it more often. Love that faux leather jacket! I'm all about faux leather when it's colder out. I preordered Harry Potter and the Cursed Child so I should be getting it on Tuesday. I honestly can't wait!! I feel like a little giddy tween again.

  9. That jacket has to be the best (faux) leather jacket I've ever seen, and I love how it looks paired with the patches (also lovely)! You should definitely keep buying more clothes that color. The lipstick is a really lovely color as well. This is just a generally perfectly curated favorites post! Love it!

  19. Love your July favorites! I've heard the Stila All Day lippies are sooo bomb. Only swatched them though but they have some beautiful colours. That Zara jacket is so cute. I have been really in to light pinks too lately, like blush shades. When there is a HP marathon on I always HAVE to watch it haha. I think a few of my friends have already finished the new book! Hope you have a great week. :)

  22. Wow, your jacket is lovely! I envy your confidence for wearing such eye-catching (but still subtle. A bit of an oxymoron) thing!
    And that lipstick is in a shade I was looking for recently, but I will have to find a dupe of it, as it seems you can't get this company products neither in the UK nor in Poland :<

  24. That Stilla liquid lipstick looks really pretty. I bet it'll look good on you! Oh and I've already seen "Me Before You." I actually liked it. I'm more of a visual person so I think I'm sticking with the movie instead of the book. Well, I've been currently obsessed with liquid matte lip cream lately... That's part of my month's faves although I haven't had that kind of posts in my blog... Kind of planning to now... :)

  42. The pink faux leather jacket is making me heart flutter. It's so beautiful! You've got such great July favourites, especially the Baci liquid lipstick. You HAVE to pair it with the jacket.

    Also, so happy to hear you had a HP Marathon. I didn't have enough time to do so, but I did buy the book when it first released. It's SO good!
