If you've been around here for a while, then you I'm a long time fan of the Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Makeup Setting Spray - it made my Best Setting Sprays in 2019 and Monthly Favs back in 2022, but I've never written a review of it!

It's July which means it's time for Summer nails - my favourite! Summer for me is always fresh, easy and bright nails, so that's usually what you can expect from me for the next couple of months!

June 2024 Ipsy Glambag Unboxing

Ipsy to me is one of the OG Beauty Subscription - I have been getting these once every few months just to see if they still are great! 

The June 2024 Theme is Sunny Days Ahead and described as "If there was ever a print that screamed summer, it’s June’s Glam Bag design. It’s bright, bold, and perfectly captures the feel of a sun-kissed season thanks to its high-impact colors (picked in honor of Pride Month!), wetsuit-esque fabric, and sporty zipper. Plus, it's packed with all the sizzling beauty picks you need for sunny days ahead."

The Ipsy Glam Bag is $14 per month + $3.95 shipping to Canada (it worked out to $25.06 CAN with the exchange for the month!) Each month comes with 5 curated products based on your preference quiz and I now you get to pick one of the items that is included in the box. It also gives you access to beauty deals in their shop.

Here's a look at my top Beauty Favourites from June:

The Biotherm and Keys were received as PR samples

The last little bit I have no number of things I've been loving and honestly, I've been trying products a little slower, so my favourites have been a little smaller and more curated than the past few years!

It's Stampede time! Yahoo! I went with my sister in law and a cousin to Stampede and we had a blast - I had pickle pizza, dunkaroo mini donuts, and had so much fun! It's been such a hot week, but it's always a crazy, busy day!

Monthly Beauty and Book Haul ~ June 2024

Back in 2022, I set a monthly beauty and books budget at $200 per month and I've been pretty good about sticking to it! I am trying to be thoughtful in my purchases, so this has been holding me accountable for being reasonable with my spending. Since it worked so well last year, I'm really trying to do the same thing this year! 

I do always love my Monthly Haul posts - it's a good way to keep track of everything that I picked up each month. I don't always blog about everything I pick up (I try to), but if you ever spot anything in here that you really want me to talk about, let me know! 


Walmart Order ~ $36.13 CAN. I was super excited to try these bronzing drops from Lottie London and I've heard amazing things about the Milani Lip Stain - I can't wait to try these both soon! I have used the LA Colors Crackle Top Coat - you can see my review here!

Armani Beauty - Luminous Silk Cheek Tint in Intense Berry

Ooooh - I'm so excited! I love a luxurious makeup product and Armani Beauty is certainly a luxury brand. This is a new blush product and I'm fully on the cream and liquid cheek products so I am ready to dive in to this! 

Armani Beauty - Luminous Silk Cheek Tint in Intense Berry
This was sent to me by Butterly for review

Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Cheek Tint in Intense Berry ~ $56.00 CAN. A lightweight liquid blush that quickly melts into skin to deliver a luminous flush of color—for a glowing makeup look that lasts up to 12 hours.

This is a little pricey, but the Armani Beauty Luminous Silk line is highly revered - so, while this is a splurge, with only a couple of dots used every time, this should last a really long time! This is meant to be a light weight, hydrating cheek tint that uses a micro–fil™ technology that allows it to blend seamlessly in to the skin without looking patchy.

Monthly Reads ~ June 2024

Time for a look at my June Monthly reads! Each month I share a quick look at the books that I've read with a little synopsis and my rating - anything that I love or is really intriguing, I will share a more in depth review on a different post! 

Monthly Reads ~ June 2024
I purchased everything in this post

So, in June I read 9 books with a mix of genres from adult romance to YA fantasy. I love most genres, and I really want to keep my reads diversified this year! Also, I've been trying to read a mix of old and new books, and this month I'm pretty close to that!
