What’s On My Radar: Summer 2017 Favorites!

Summer 2017 Favourites

It’s that time of year when we start to think about Autumn and back to school. But wait! Summer isn’t over yet! Technically, we have until September 21st to get in that last minute trip to the beach or whatever else Summer means to you. I haven’t done a What’s On My Radar post in a few months so let’s talk about my Summer 2017 Favourites.

Summer Beauty Favourites

Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Palette
I know Chocolate Bon Bons isn’t a new palette but I’ve been using this so much lately! If I have a high end palette I may as well not be scared to use it. Are you guys excited for the new Peaches & Cream Collection launching August 31st?!

Hawaiian Tropic Ultra Radiance SPF30 Sunscreen
I’ve been living in this sunscreen all Summer! I love the smell of Hawaiian Tropic and it makes my skin look so glowy! Some sunscreens are so thick that they are hard to rub in, but this one is the perfect consistency. It’s easy to apply, and also mixes well with my daily moisturizer.

Tarte rainforest of the sea 4 in 1 setting mist
I love this setting mist! This is my first time using one and it’s everything I could have hoped for. It smells nice, hydrates, and gives a nice dewy finish. Check out my review here!

Trust Fund Beauty Lipgloss
I may not have been excited when I received this lipgloss from my January Ipsy Glam Bag, but I’ve been loving it this season! It’s not very sticky and lasts several hours before fading away.

Summer 2017 Favourites - Trind Nail Polish

Trind Caring Color Nail Polish in Sienna
This is a nail polish that looks so much prettier on the nails than it does in the bottle. I though it was a nice shade when I received it in my Summer Luxebox, but I had no idea I would become so obsessed with it. I have a tendency to change my nails up often, but as soon as this chipped I would apply another coat. It’s such a gorgeous rose gold!

Summer 2017 Favourites - Sip By Swell

Summer Lifestyle Favourites

S’ip by S’well
I can’t even convey to you how long I’ve wanted a S’well water bottle!! They’re really expensive though, a 16oz bottle normally goes for $45 (CAD). Enter S’ip by S’well, the newer, cheaper, and slightly different shaped water bottle. It’s the exact same thing as the original, only more triangular shaped and doesn’t come with the plethora of patterns available with regular S’well bottles. It holds 15oz for $35 (24.99US at S’well). I got the cutest mint green bottle with little white and black triangles! If you’ve heard the claims of this bottle, let me tell you they are true, your water will stay cold all day. My ice cubes are intact hours later!

Summer Music Favourites

Lindsey Stirling – Brave Enough 2016
This isn’t a new album, but it’s new to me. I bought it on itunes for $7.99 this month and I can’t stop listening to it! Lindsey Stirling is incredibly talented and as a music major I love when that counts for something in the music industry. My favourite song off the album is Love’s Just a feeling.

Lindsey Stirling- It Ain’t Me (Kygo/Selena Gomez Cover) 2017
If you guys are loving It ain’t me, and this song is everywhere right now, check out Lindsey and Kurt Hugo Schneider’s cover of the song by clicking the link above! Once again, this lady blows my mind.

Portugal The Man – Feel It Still 2017
Our local radio stations were calling this the song of the summer for a while before High by Sir Sly caught on. I haaaate that song. High may have captured the hearts of the local millennials, but Feel It Still will forever be my 2017 song of the Summer!

    I still have that too faced palette on my wish list, I hope I can get it in the near future! I also love the Tarte setting mist and it smells so good which doesn’t always happen with setting sprays. Oh and I love Lindsey Stirling too! I got the chance to go to her concert last September and it was beyond amazing! I swear she’s even better live!

      It’s a great pallette, I highly recommend it if you get the chance! I think I’m going to get a full size of the mist when I run out! I’m glad you love it too 😊
      That’s so awesome you got to see her!! The last time she had a concert here it sold out before I even knew she was playing, I hope she does another tour soon!!

      I found you on IG, thanks for sharing your username! I am fully converted to S’well bottles now, they work so well! Thanks for reading 😊

    I haven’t heard of those S’ip bottles! It’s super cute! Is it just like a water thermos?

    • August 31, 2017 / 10:33 am

      Yes, basically! I believe they are double walled stainless steel so they keep water really cold for a long time. You can also use them for hot drinks, I think 6 hours is the claim for those. I just use mine for water though 😳

      Isn’t it!? I love the mint green! The S’ip bottle have less patterns to choose from than the regular S’well bottles, but they still have quite a few cute designs. Thanks for stopping by ❤

    I love Lindsey Stirling’s music!

      She’s amazing!! Glad you love her too Karalee!
