My Favorite Things for June 2017 – Beauty & Style

There are a number of items I love in June within the beauty and style department.


Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil

Do you use a brow pencil? It took me a while to find one I like that didn’t make my brows look too “colored in” or fake. I like this Perfectly Defined Long Wear Brow Pencil (color mahagony) for its rectangular, slanted shape for smooth application and its blending brush at the other end. It’s made from a wax-based formula which is waterproof and sweat/humidity-resistant.

Sulwhasoo Cushion Foundation with SPF 50

Lately I’ve been paranoid about sun damage to my face. This compact comes with a cushion sponge that you press to get just the right amount of foundation. I like the efficiency and the fact that it has full SPF coverage. It gives me the look of smooth and even colored skin. The foundation compact comes with a full-size refill.

It is available at Nordstrom Sulwhasoo Perfection Cushion (I use color 33). You can also order it on Amazon for less, but make sure you try it first to ensure you get the right color.

The description says, “It’s formulated with apricot kernel oil to promote collagen formation in the skin, improving skin’s elasticity and resilience for powerful anti-wrinkle benefits, along with Jaumdan™ Water and antioxidants to deliver optimal hydration and a lifting effect. ”

Not sure about the lifting effects, but I love the natural looking finish on my face and sun protection.


Victoria Beckham Dress

I own two Victoria Beckham dresses and they both make me feel fit and sexy! The material is magic as it feels like full body Spanx without looking too compressed.

This dress holds everything in place and makes me look 10lbs lighter! I got this one from the Barneys at Desert Hills Premium Outlet for a great deal. But even at sale prices, these are the most expensive dresses I own. In my opinion, the timeless style, quality and fit are worth the investment.

The same style in black is on sale now on Victoria Beckham’s website.

I like this one too (also on sale), and it’s perfect for the season.

Swimsuit- Black Becca Color-Play One Piece

I’ve always worn 2 pieces but these days, I want to wear something I can actually swim in the ocean in. Maybe since one piece suits are now in style, there is a better selection?


I found this black Becca Show and Tell which doesn’t make me feel matronly and allows me to move around freely without worrying about things falling out of place! It comes in various colors and you can find it on sale at Macys now.

Pom Pom Sneakers

I love putting these on when I’m wearing jeans and a t-shirt or a monochromatic outfit. It puts a little whimsy in my look and makes me happy!

These Steve Madden pom pom sneakers are on sale at Macy’s.


I love this Ellah Wide-Leg Jumper  for its elegant look and comfort. It looks just as good loose as it does with a belt.


This jumper can be worn casually during the day with simple shoes or dressed up for an evening look. The slit V-neckline gives the outfit a bit of sexiness with class.

Bandolier Cross Body Case

My brother got this Bandolier Cross Body Phone Case for me, and I love it! I even wear it around the house. Makes life so much easier knowing where my phone is at all times!  I like how it doesn’t need to be opened to view. I just pick it up, face it to me and everything is right there. The company makes a few different designs. I can’t believe this isn’t more popular yet.


I love my ZARA sequin slides but I don’t see them on the website. I found these slides that are just as cute!
