monthly favorites

{favorite beauty items}  

neutrogena healthy skin enhancer spf 20 – this is a great bb cream.  my skin likes it in the summer because it evens out my skin tone but is still very light.

hot mama blush from the balm – it has just enough coral color for the summer with a fine gold shimmer.  i’ve been wearing it almost every day on my cheeks and eyes.

neutrogena ultra light cleansing oil – i was weary of using a facial oil.  i mean, why would i put oil on my face?  that’s what i’m trying to avoid.  but this stuff is great!  it removes my waterproof mascara and other makeup really well.  it does not break me out and leaves my skin with just the right amount of moisture.

{favorite eats}

zoodles – i recently bought this spiralizer off of amazon.  it’s completely changed how i eat veggies.  i also bought the “inpiralized” cookbook and am trying out some new recipes.  so far, so good!


hello fresh subscription – the recipes are all so unique.  i enjoyed all of them!

{favorite reads}

outlander by diana gabaldon – i was interested in this book after watching the starz series.  it gets a little soapy at times, but i like it!

inspiralized by ali maffucci – this cookbook has so many interesting recipies!

{favorite new music, tv shows, movies}

the white queen on amazon prime – i’m a sucker for a historical series like the tudors, downton abbey, north & south, reign, etc.  this one doesn’t disappoint.

catastrophe on amazon prime – this short series is written by the two main characters.  it is funny and real and sweet and heartbreaking all at the same time.

rosewater on netflix – this movie was directed and written by jon stewart, who i adore.  it’s the real life story of an iranian born canadian who is thrown in prison in iran when he visits to do a story for newsweek.  it’s fascinating.

outlander – i’ve only seen the first part of season one (part two hasn’t been released on dvd yet), but i am in love.  such a great show!

{most memorable moments – the good and bad}

working summer school is so boring, but it’s good money for the time so i can’t complain.

my car wreck left me with bruises and frustration, but those will fade.


music in the gardens – twice.


receiving my new rose gold Erin Condren planner…and then waiting for the replacement because the first one was so messed up.  it was worth the wait.


trying out my new spiralizer.  it’s changed the way i eat veggies!!

not being able to (and not wanting to) workout due to my car wreck.  i’m scared to get back into it, but at the same time i want to.

practicing my handwriting.


cutting cable out of my life!  it was harder and easier than i thought.  i miss some live tv, but there are so many options out there now.

staying with my grandparents.


saying goodbye to my friend jessica.  it was hard, but i know we’ll keep in touch.

wine and dine with my friend amber.


shattering my phone screen and having to pay nearly $200 to get it fixed.  😦
