June 2014 Favorites

This month one of the most amazing things in my life happened. More of that towards the end of the post, let's cover the beauty stuff first.

Beauty Favorites: I caved and got the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla (£22.00). And I have not regretted it. It will get its own post, but for now let me sum it up: great coverage, yet creamy (so not cakey or creasing). The other favorite is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Bronze (£3.99). I love this for under the lower lash line. Once smudged, it does not budge. Word.

Book Favorite: Once again a book I thank my lovely friend Laure-Anne for; 12 Years A Slave by Solomon Northup. I have yet to watch the film adaptation, but in my opinion this is the best account of slavery in North-America. His perspective on humanity and the terrors of slavery is so astonishing.

(Random) Favorite of the month/life: On June 19th, I became both aunt and godmother. My sister gave birth to the most perfect little girl, called Estée. Words cannot explain how proud I am of her and how honored I am that she trusts me with this amazing responsibility. I love you lots, big sis. 

Safe to say this month was a spectacular one. And on top of that, I got my second Master's degree at University. It has been a good year.

What are your favorites this month?
