June Favorites!

Where did June go?? Honestly though, this summer is flying by and I want it to slow down! Here are my June favorites; enjoy!

ENTERTAINMENT

  • TV SHOW:
    • Stitchers: This show recently made its return for a new season on Freeform (formerly ABC Family). I started watching this show when it premiered a couple years ago, and I love it! It definitely doesn’t get the attention it deserves – it is a great sci-fi/crime drama (with great love stories, of course). It is about a secret division of the NSA where the main girl, Kirsten, can “stitch” into the memories of recently deceased victims to help solve murders. Just give it a try if you’ve never watched it! The new season is great!stitcherscanren
  • MOVIE:
    • Cool Runnings: Confession: I don’t think I watched one whole movie during the month of June – it was a busy month you guys. But, I do recall sitting down to watch this throwback film on Netflix one weekend afternoon. I remember loving this movie when I was a kid, and so I freaked out when I saw it on Netflix! Would highly recommend 🙂

  • MUSIC:
    • The Darkness: Ok, I know a lot of you will remember the song “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” that was on the radio back in the early 2000s. (and if you don’t, just look it up on YouTube and enjoy!) I have been listening to this band a lot this summer – they are one of our favorites! They have four albums out now and are releasing another one soon. Some of their songs are a bit weird, but if you look past the lyrics and just listen to the music – it is awesome!

  • BOOK:
    • The Impossible Vastness of Us by Samantha Young: I read this book for review last month, and surprisingly, I fell in love with it! It tells the story of India – who moves across the country to be with her mom, new stepdad and stepsister. After struggling with the newness and trying to fit in, India eventually finds herself with a close group of friends and a newfound positive outlook on her new life. You can see my review post here! Be sure to check this book out if you are a lover of YA!

CRAFTS/HOBBIES

  • Festive and Color-Themed Weekly Spreads in my Happy Planner:
    • I am a very festive person. I love all holidays, and love to decorate my house and dress festively for each one! I will insert a couple of photo examples below, but when I set out to create my weekly spread, I use festive stickers and washi, or try to center everything around a particular color. I have tons of washi I picked up from Michaels and Target, and I primarily use the MAMBI Happy Planner sticker value packs.

SELF-CARE

  • VICTORIA’S SECRET SUCH A FLIRT SUGAR SCRUB
    •  I’m pretty sure this product isn’t even available anymore – I got it a couple of years ago. But, I have recently been loving it (and I’m almost out – sad day). Since I started working out consistently, I have noticed that my elbows and knees have become dry. So, I like using this sugar scrub to exfoliate them and then use a lotion to rehydrate them, keeping them soft and smooth.

FOOD

  • SALADS:
    • Since it is summer and it is so hot outside, there is nothing better than a cool salad. I have been loving a good, cold salad at lunch. My favorites usually involve fruit and nuts. 🙂 (photo cred to Venturists.net)

  • Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter:
    • I picked this up on a whim near the end of June, and I AM OBSESSED. This stuff is so good. My favorite way to eat it so far is with apple slices 🙂

HOME GOODS

  • Home Office Decor:
    • I have been planning on redecorating my office/workout room for a while now, and while I still have really started, I have collected a few items that I know I’ll be using. My color scheme is gray, white, rose gold, pink, and some hints of navy blue.  I’ll try to leave some of my Pinterest inspiration below. I plan on spray painting my metal desk white/gray, and the metal desk organization things in a pretty rose gold paint.
