I feel like every time I publish a post, I need to issue a public apology that I have been so M.I.A. Y’all, life is just crazy. Like, legitimately crazy. But, that being said, I have finally moved into a new apartment and have a tiny glimpse of peace and tranquility. Just a tiny one though, because moving into a new apartment is nothing short of chaotic. Buuuut, I am living with one of my best friends and it’s a good change. I feel like I actually have a home in LA now, which is something that I didn’t really know I was missing when I was living out of AirBNBs during the first month and a half I was here. So things are good. Crazy, but good. And now that I am kind of settled, I want to start blogging more again. Thus here we are…
That was the longest and most irrelevant intro ever for a post about June Favorites hahahaha. Whatevs, it’s fine. Here’s what I loved during the month of June! (Yes, I know it is halfway through July but just bear with me).
Living Proof Perfect Day Hair 5-in-1 Styling Treatment – I’m at a really awkward point with my hair where I haven’t gotten a haircut in almost a year because I’ve been growing it out, and my ends of my hair are really fried from general wear and tear because of it…. Up until I got a sample of this product, my hair was just really annoyingly dry all the time. The 5-in-1 styling treatment is a leave-in conditioner that just makes your hair shinier, smoother and all-around easier to manage. It says that you’re supposed to blow dry after you apply it, but given that I don’t even own a blow drier, I just let my hair air dry after applying it and it still works wonders. I also have sample of the shampoo/conditioner, which are really good as well.
BB Dakota ‘Renley’ Lace Fit & Flare Dress – I wore this dress way too much in June – it’s basically the most versatile dress of all time. You can make it super casual with flats and a sweater, or you can dress it up with heels and a necklace. Graduations, weddings, brunch with friends…. the possibilities are endless. I actually wear this to work and in everyday life because it’s just so freaking comfortable. I have it in the colors Evergreen and Optic White.
The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell – Okay so technically I read The Girl On The Train in June, but I didn’t finish it because I didn’t like it, soooo I’m just going to talk about the book I’m reading now that I like much better. I just started The Bone Clocks, and I love it so far. I love the way David Mitchell writes and the twisted storyline will draw you in to the characters and the plot so fast that you won’t know what hit you. Highly recommend. Full review after I finish it.
SummerBreak – Fair warning, this is one of those shows where you will either love it or hate it. If you love keeping up with the Kardashians and based all of your 2009 fashion choices after LC on MTV’s Laguna Beach, you will love this show. It follows 11 Southern California high school seniors (and one junior!) as they make their way through their last summer before college. There’s no shortage of beaches, sass, heartbreak, drama, or confessional videos on their phones. It’s fully streamed on YouTube so you can watch it whenever you want without worrying about setting your DVR. I’m obsessed, it’s fine.
And that just about wraps up June! Not too much stuff, which is probably because June feels like it was a million years ago and it took significant effort to figure out what I was even up to during that time. OH WAIT ONE MORE. Donuts were also a fave in June because we had sooooooo many donut days at work. Like, so many. It actually got to the point where somebody brought it up at a meeting and requested that people stop bringing us donuts. First world problems much?
