July Favorites

Here are a few things that I loved in July:

Lupita’s Interview in Vogue Magazine. I was so excited when I saw that Lupita was going to be on the cover of Vogue. I finally got around to reading her interview and it was so good. I continue to admire her and if you’re a Lupita fan, you’ll definitely want to check out this interview.

Julep Nail Color Kam. I may have like six other mint green nail polishes, but they’re all different. This one by Julep is my new favorite of the bunch and you can see what it looks like on my nails here.

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides. I was really excited to read this one. I posted a picture at the beginning of last month and several people commented about how much they love this book. I finished it recently and thought it was so good. The longer I think about it and reflect on it, the more I like it. At some point soon, I’ll watch the movie directed by Sofia Coppola.

Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl in Black. I was looking for an eyeliner that I could use on my waterline and this one works really well. It’s so creamy and smooth. Now I need a new eyeliner pen for cat eye flicks because my previous one dried out. Any recommendations for one that makes it easier to do a cat eye for an eyeliner noob like me?

Postcards from my best friend. I’ve already mentioned these in my wanderlust post, but it was certainly the best mail that I received all month.

Tell me: What were your July favorites?

    The Virgin Suicides is such a great book and I loved the post about your friend’s trip, beautiful photos! My favorite from July was definitely my trip to Chicago :)

    I love mint polishes, though I only have one and it’s going to be running out soon! Mint anything is just divine!

    That is such a nice nail color! Mint doesn’t typically go very well with my skin tone, but I am tempted…

    I love that eyeliner and the Virgin Suicides movie was quite interesting. Now I need to read the book.

    Love getting postcards :) and I def need to pick up the Virgin suicides! I’ve heard such great things.

    • http://starcrossedsmile.com/ Nnenna

      You should! It’s a really good read. Not the happiest of books, but really good.

    awww. I love the postcards you received! I LOVE receiving them as well! In fact, if I know anyone who travels, all I ask for are postcards (mailed, of course). Sometimes, people think I just want a postcard and they literally give me a postcard when they return. haha. So I’ve learned to clarify that I would like the mailed. haha

    I also LOVE Lupita. She is so genuine and so smart. And of course BEAUTIFUL.

    xo,

      Haha, that’s so funny that people would bring you postcards instead of sending them :) When I was traveling in college, I used to collect postcards from all the cities I visited. I then displayed them in my room and it was such a nice reminder of those experiences They’re tucked away somewhere now, but I’m tempted to pull them out and reminisce.

      Also, yes to everything you said about Lupita :)

    Love that nail polish! I definitely need to read Lupita’s Vogue interview. Hopefully the bookstore I frequent still has it on the shelves.

    What a beautiful polish! How did I miss it? lol all the Juleps are starting to look similar.

    Lupita was fabulous in Vogue!
