Waterfall Nails. To me, it looks more like a hula skirt than water, but either way it's a fairly easy and super customizable nail art technique.0

Today marks my two-year anniversary with New York City. I left my Florida beach town and moved 1,000 miles north to the largest city in the country. It was such a drastic change moving from suburbia to the urban landscape of NYC. Though I would now consider this week par for the course, this is why I love the city so much.

Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo & Conditioner
I love the Organix range of hair care products. They are super affordable without including parabens and sodium laurel sulfate. This duo of products cleanses, moisturizes, and leaves my hair smelling amazing.
Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Flat Iron Spray
This is a pretty typical thermal protectant. It works well, and it smells like a tropical vacation.
The Body Shop Body Butter in Coconut
I have recently become obsessed with these body butters. All the scents are amazing, including this coconut one.
Zico Coconut Water
It's important to not only nourish your skin and hair on the outside using topical products, but also on the inside. Coconut Water is a great source of potassium and is low in calories and sodium. I like to drink it on it's own or add it to smoothies.
David's Tea Coconut Grove Tea
This is a white tea blend with bits of coconut. If you love tea and love coconut, I highly recommend this. It tastes great hot or iced.
Tropical Coconut Candle
I just love the smell of coconut. This candle isn't too sweet, more of a fresh coconut scent. I picked it up at Rite-Aid on a whim for like 60 cents. I keep it in my bathroom for impromptu at-home spa nights.
Coconut can be a love it or hate it scent. Which side do you fall on?

Early this week, I met up with my graduate school friends in the city. Later in the week led to Preston's birthday. His dad and brother flew up from Florida for a long weekend. We spent one day in the city followed by a weekend rural escape. With the outrageous temperatures, it was nice to spend the some time outside of the city and in the water.

May Favourites have continued to be necessities during the month of June, but I have purchased, as well as rediscovered, a few new things that have made the favourites cut.0
