Happy May, y’all! We are 5 months into 2015 and it feels like this year is just scooting right along. I’m ready to keep the sunshine around for a bit. I so enjoy the longer days with daylight lasting until 8pm. Just makes me feel like I can get so much more accomplished! Last month, I rounded up my favorites for my April Budget Buys. This month, I focused on a few things that would bring on the sunshine. Or get me ready for the sunshine! Let’s take a peek at my May Budget Buys!
ONE: Posy Floral Crown • Anthropologie • $28 …LOVING the Floral Crown trend! So much so that I recently made my own DIY Floral Crown and showed you how to make your own too! Don’t have time to make one? Grab this gorgeous one from Anthro!
TWO: “NARS Schiap Pink Lipstick • Nordstrom • $27 …Hello?! It’s pink!! 😉 LOL I own a couple of shades of really bright pink, but I’m thinking I need to add this one too!
THREE: Bare Escentuals bareMinerals Faux Tan Body Sunless Body Tanner • Macy’s • $26 …time to give those legs and arms a sunkissed glow without sitting in the hot sun and soaking in the UV rays.
FOUR: Lilly Pulitzer® “Amelia” Aviators • Nordstrom • $78 …who couldn’t use a new pair of sunnies for summer???
FIVE: Ornate Paisely Maxi Kimono • Forever21 • $24.90 ….this is in my shopping cart right now!!
SIX: Wild Cocktails Book • Anthropologie • $24.95 …I love creating cocktails and this book looks like it would have some AMAZING cocktail recipes inside!!
SEVEN: Cover FX Contour Kit • Sephora • $48 …if you are in the market for a HAC palette kit (highlighting and contouring), check out the different options from Cover FX!
EIGHT: 6″ Kindle • Amazon • $59-79 …I’m an avid reader (just take a look at my bookshelf) and I love real books. But I also love my Kindle and keep it with me in my purse. It’s perfect for those times when carting around a couple of books is inconvenient. If you don’t have an e-reader and have been on the fence about it because you love the feel of real books…just grab you one. I promise you will not be disappointed! And this is coming from a girl who LOVES real books. Like I request ARC copies in physical form instead of e-book form because I’d rather have a real copy to hold.
