The Monthly Recap, My 100 follower giveaway winner, (and an embarrassing confession)


I've decided that this will now be a thing. At the end of each month, I'll be gathering together the top five posts of the month and shove them in your face just in case you missed out. So just in case you were off on vacation, or wasn't part of the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Life experience yet, here's what happened on this little corner of the internet. (click on the photo to take you to the original post)

My first cross-continent international (duh) beauty swap - aka the post where I oohed and ahhed over some beautiful products that I should've had in my life earlier.

I'm obsessed with corals, and as a lip product newbie, I plunged right in without testing out the waters with neutrals first.

Neutral eyeshadows are diamonds in the makeup world: they're a girl's best friend. (was that terrible?) Here's the post where I show you my favorite palettes.

 An embarrassingly big haul over a couple weekends that caused a huge dent in my wallet.

Last but not least, a personal post that has managed to inspire some of you amazing people. Aka the post where I blast my version of Maroon 5's "She Will Be Loved" in a more eloquent way (and doesn't have a semi-creepy music video).

Congratulations to Laila for winning my 100 follower giveaway! I already sent you an email so be sure to reply to me in the next 48 hours or the winner will be chosen again. 

So. I was hoping to go to bed and wake up this morning to find out that it was just an embarrassing dream. But no, as I'm typing this up, I'm still cringing (while being quite happy) at the embarrassing lack of self-restraint I have. I flippantly declared that I was going on a spending ban for a month in that wallet breaking haul post. But I broke in an embarrassingly (I sense a theme here) short amount of time (two weeks. TWO WEEKS!) and came home today with some new goodies. I'll introduce the newbies in my ever-growing makeup collection soon once I get over the shame.

What was your favorite post of the month? And genuinely, what kind of posts do you guys like to read?
