May/June Obessions

Good news friends! I finally got my laptop fixed! I accidentally cracked the screen a few months ago and it was really difficult to see what I was writing. I was just going to live with it since fixing it through Apple would be almost $400! But then my friend referred me to MacReboot, which is WAAAAY cheaper! So thank you Neil and thanks MacReboot! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who owns a Mac and needs some repairs.

So without further ado, I will now share with you some things that I have loved the past two months...

1. Neon Trees

I just love this band... I heard their song Animal on The Hills a few weeks ago and decided to look them up online. I ended up getting their album Habits and have been listening to them ever since! I also found out that they are right here from Utah! My personal favorite is their song 1983, it's super catchy and perfect for summer :]

2. doTERRA
My mom introduced me to this company. They are also based out of Utah, and they are the only Essential Oil company in the world that manufactures their oils organically, and every oil is 100% pure! They don't add fillers or nasty preservatives like other companies do. Personally, I don't like taking medicine. It usually just makes me more sick and the side effects are horrible. But this stuff is completely natural straight from Mother Nature herself! People have been using oils for thousands of years! They were so valuable, in fact, that some of them were worth more than gold! We bought a kit about a month ago and it has really blessed our family. I am planning on doing a post all about doTERRA in a day or tow, so I will go into further details then. 

3. Hot Topic Nail Polish
I bought a bottle of Shocking Pink about a month ago and between my sister and I, we have used almost half the bottle already! All of Hot Topic's colors are super bright and fun! They even have clear nail polish that glows in black-light. How fun would that be when you go out dancing?

4. Arbonne Cosmetics
This is the best makeup I have ever used. I have the Makeup Primer, Creme Concealer, Perfecting Liquid Foundation with SPF 15. This stuff is magic. It doesn't get all cakey like most foundations, and it honestly lasts all day. Love it!

5. Bed Head Self Absorbed Shampoo and Conditioner
I have always liked Bed Head, their products smell amazing! I bought this kind last week and have fallen in love. It smells just like orange soda, and makes my hair super soft. The scent is perfect for summer and   all the vitamins and nutrients help repair hair damaged from all the sunbathing. 

6. African Ice
Nothing says summer like shaved ice on a hot day. What makes this place special? Well, besides the fact that it tastes a million times better than all the other snow shacks, they help change the world one cup of shaved ice at a time. Half of every purchase goes to someone in Africa trying to build a business. Every shack has an are with three or four yellow funnels with pictures of someone from Africa and a little description about who they are and what kind of business they are trying to build. When you buy a snow cone, you get a little coin that you put into the funnel of your choice. Every coin represents $1. My favorite flavor is banana coconut with lots of cream! Mmmmm! 
If you are ever in Utah during the summer, make sure you stop and get an African Ice!
