It's favorites time again! This past month I've loved some fashion, lifestyle and beauty bits that I'm really excited to share with you so let's hop right in. 

First up, is my new styling tool that has transformed how I do my hair.

I raved about the Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush in my updated hair styling routine here. 

This styling tool truly does it all - it tames flyaways while straightening, preserves hair and increases shine by locking in moisture and cuts my styling routine in half.

In less than 10 minutes I'm able to completely straighten my hair without loosing volume, for a polished look that's perfect for every day.

Next up, I have two beauty favorites that I've been loving. To highlight my face in summer, I love a natural looking product without a ton of shimmer. To achieve this I picked up the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat in shade 2.5. I love how it illuminates my face in such a natural way that doesn't highlight any skin flaws. 

When it comes to perfume you know that I have a signature scent - Jo Malone Red Roses.

I've worn this perfume for years and even wore it on my wedding because it's the perfect balance of light and floral. Plus, it doesn't irritate my sensitive nose or exacerbate my asthma. 

For these reasons I've never had a reason to sway - until now. I recently discovered Phlur through a Facebook ad believe it or not and was instantly drawn in by the clean lines and beautiful imagery. 

After perusing their website a bit I was completely in love and decided to give their sample set a try. 

I picked up testers of Olmstead & Vaux (my favorite!), Hanami (beautiful but a little to sweet for me) and Greylocke (a tad too masculine on me). All-in-all, I can't say enough good things about this brand and once I'm done with my Jo Malone I'm pretty sure I'll be picking up a full-size of Olmstead & Vaux. 

Last but not least, in the month of July I LOVED Boston! Jason and I got to spend a few hours there between our flights a few weeks ago and I am completely smitten. Not only is it beautiful, but it's also historic and clean - everything I love in a city. I hope to visit again soon and I can't wait to share it with you when that happens. 

Below, I've linked the corresponding video, and like always, I'd love to know what you've been loving this month! Let me know in the comments down below and thanks so much for watching.
