i <3 these things (aka may faves)

Happy Thursday, Magical Creatures!

I want to finish off the month of May by sharing a few of my favorite things.

If you just hummed The Sound of Music, go ahead and include yourself on this list.

1. I’m Drinking: La Croix


Or, the new Diet Coke.

I’m constantly fighting the hydration battle. I’ve never been good at carrying a water bottle or remembering to drink when I’m not thirsty. And, I’m ashamed to say it, but WATER IS SO BORING.

This month, I have been trying to transition to drinking something a little healthier than Diet Coke. It still satisfies my carbonation craving, but is free of artificial sweeteners!

My go-to is the Peach-Pear flavor, but Grapefruit is a classic.

2. I’m Watching: Bill Nye Saves the World


Bill Nye is still targeting millennials in this new Netflix original, but don’t worry, he’s grown with us. In each episode, Bill tackles a different controversial subject, debunking myths with help from his correspondents and a panel of experts.

I love science, so watching this show was a no brainer for me. But if you think science is lame, who are you, and also, you won’t after watching this show. Bill educates his audience in entirely entertaining ways, as usual, and all in an array of classy bow-tie-and-suit combinations.

His dad-esque humor and wacky experiments make me feel like a kid again.

3. I’m Wearing: Bobby Pins


Bobby pins are always in my hair because I’m growing out my bangs, but I’m not complaining.

Some people try to hide their bobby pins, but I say wear them loud and proud.

Showing off pins is a strong feminine statement. It says, “Yes, I work hard to look this good. Don’t underestimate me.”

I have some cute colored ones as well as the classic kind, which are a little more functional. I love them piled on in an up do, or just pulling hair out of the face.

4. I’m Reading: Girl on the Train


I’m right in the middle of this book, so don’t worry, no spoilers will be given because I don’t even know them yet.

I mostly started to read this book because I wanted to see the movie, but I’m enjoying it far more than I initially expected.

The structure of the narrative makes my heart happy. It has a creative timeline that keeps me on my toes, not to mention the complex and relatable characters that author Paula Hawkins has dreamed up.

5. I’m Using: Neutrogena Hydro Boost


Yes, this is the product on those commercials with Kristin Bell where she has the best looking skin you have ever seen. And surprisingly, it is actually real.

I mean it’s not going to give you Kristin-Bell-level skin, that’s just good genes. But it DOES work.

Thanks to my extremely talented esthetitian/beauty-guru friend Ally, I have a new skin care routine that is changing my life (post to come in the next month).

I learned that my skin isn’t dry, it’s dehydrated. Instead of a lotion moisturizer I am now using a water-based moisturizer! It’s hydrating my skin like crazy. My skin actually has glow now, which I’ve honestly never seen before.

It’s on the high end of pricing for Neutrogena, but I think it’s worth the splurge for a good moisturizer.

6. I’m Listening to: Future Islands


Just check them out, okay?

All I have to say is that they are officially my summer crush. And I have them on repeat.


Thanks for checking out my post, I hope you have a wonderful weekend, magical creatures!

Glitter and Rainbows,

The Girlicorn
