Summer is coming! Unfortunately, for me, June (and, more in general, the beginning of summer) always coincides with a really full work schedule as I always have to close several big projects before the summer comes. Where I live, seasonality is less pronounced than in Italy, and mid-august has no particular meaning here, but nevertheless it is impossible to escape these typical “end of school” pressures, even if school is long gone for me.
So let’s move on to the list of my June favorites in different categories: here they are, my favorite films, videos, books, places and products of these last few weeks!
VIDEOS OF THE MONTH
A great video on how to create a minimalistic makeup collection, by two of my favorite Vloggers.
A useful video tutorial on how to apply self tanners by Hot and Flashy, one of my favorite Youtube Channels!
Great tips for a perfect spleep at every age!
How not to look older with fashion – I really adore this French Vlogger!
FILM OF THE MONTH
You all know by now about my little thing about Jane Austen, don’t you? 🙂
To watch one of the BBC’s transpositions of one of her novels always has the power to calm me when I’m nervous or stressed.
There’s a whole world in those novels, often wrongly branded as “romance novels”.
This film, on the other hand, is something completely different:
I streamed it for the second time a few nights ago and I really enjoied it this time too.
BOOKS OF THE MONTH
Problem of the month: summer is about to begin, and I still have 1-2 kilos to lose. It would be easy if I had more time for myself, which I don’t have at the moment. Drastic diets are not for me, quite the opposite, in fact… As a result, I chose the soft way and to motivate myself by buying this new cookbook! I really love it!
PLACES OF THE MONTH
Apart from a few trips to the lake and a crazy shopping trip to Milan, this month I haven’t been around much so far… But at the beginning of July we leave for a beautiful trip, the realization of a dream that I have since I was a child! I’ll do a post in July, when I come back!
PRODUCTS OF THE MONTH: WHAT TO BUY NOW
Just arrived, tested for 4 mornings in a row and I’m already in love! <3 I’m talking about the latest product from The Ordinary I’ve tested,
It leaves the skin super soft and very velvety, but also smooth and lifted, ready to welcome a good moisturizer and some make-up!
I notice the effect especially on my neck: the horizontal lines are much less evident since I use this product.
Travel Beauty Bag: I’ve bought this one and I’m already filling it in view of my next trip. It’s one of the most useful and intelligent travel and holiday purchases ever!
I’m on the hunt for some lovely bracelets for this summer and I’m finding some wonderful ones, to wear alone or in a bunch!
