May was a great month for me!
My birthday, Mother’s Day……my birthday ;)
Besides May being the best month of the year, I decided to share some of the things I found in May that have now become staples in my life.
Anti-Aging Night Treatment- Tula Multi-Spectrum Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment
Let’s start with skincare. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I now swear by Tula and their skin care line. I have my favorite products that I use every day, but last month I decided to try the Multi-Spectrum Overnight Skin Rescue Treatment. I’ll be honest, I hated the smell of it at first but once I put it on my face, I was in love. It left my skin GLOWING! I woke up with that same glow and my skin never felt smoother or healthier after waking up. I quickly added this to my night time routine and you should too! This is also an anti aging treatment that will renew the look of your skin and reduce the appearance of lines.

I found a few good finds in May when it came to makeup.
Concealer- BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer
(Now, I totally snagged this concealer at TJ Maxx for about $12 so I would highly recommend shopping around for this before buying at Ulta.)
I LOVE this concealer! I was using a drug store brand before that I liked, but it always seemed to crease in the most unflattering places. When I found this at TJ Maxx, and it seemed to be my shade, I hopped on Google and looked for reviews. It had some great reviews so I decided to give it a shot. It’s now my new favorite concealer! It leaves you with such a natural looking glow, is medium coverage, light weight (which I love), and creasing? We don’t know her. If you aren’t a full coverage queen and you’re into a more natural look, I’d totally give this a try!
Liquid Lips- Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink/ Shade: Seductress
You guy know I LOVE these liquid lips! I really wanted to try a nude shade that I wasn’t used to, so I picked this shade up and now I can’t stay away from it! It is literally the perfect nude. If you haven’t already tried this formula, please do. It’s one of my favorites! Long lasting and that matte finish???? We love her.
I recently found these magical creatures at Ulta and I gave them a go, being that they were so affordable. I went for a bold red and while I LOVED the formula, I did notice that the bright red bled a bit after a while. I decided to try a more neutral color in the hopes that this one wouldn’t bleed, because I really did love the formula and finish of these liquid lips. I found Bumble, swatched it on my arm and went for it. I LOVE this color! It is such a gorgeous shade and just the right amount of bold. This one did not bleed for me and is now always in my bag. These are so affordable that you’ve gotta have at least 1 or 2 in your collection!
At Home Programming- Outside The Box Fit
I started a new programming by Pat and Taz Barber in May. Programming for yourself can be a big pain in the ass when you don’t know what you’re doing. The vast majority of people who are looking to workout at home won’t know what to do. Outside the Box Fit is the perfect solution to that problem. You’re given a program to do everyday and 98% of it will require hardly any equipment. A couple of dumbbells and you’re set. I’ve really enjoyed this programming. It’s not easy, but there are always ways to scale and they share those with you within the programming. Pat and Taz also attach YouTube videos to every program that go over each movement that you’ll need to perform that day. If you’re in need of a program, I highly recommend this one. Join me in the madness every day!
Workout Equipment- GetRx’d Challenger Weight Vest
I recently got a weighted vest in preparation for the MURPH workout that I participated in on Memorial Day. That was the best decision I could have made for myself and my training. When I say that it’s a game changer, I MEAN IT! This vest will humble the F out of you within the first 5 minutes of using it. Wear it when you’re doing a workout with body weight movements, wear it when you run, wear it on a hike, wear it and start making yourself a better athlete. I really want to sign up for a Run Disney Challenge and I know I’ll be running in this vest to train for those runs, without a doubt!
