So, this is my first ‘Favorites’ post. I am going to do this each month, just showing different things I enjoyed during the previous month! I’m so excited to share the things that have really made a staple in my life last month. Check them out:
Ultra Repair Cream
This summer my skin has been flawless. I’ve been working out, eating right, using the sauna, and wearing very little or no make up. This lotion has helped keep my face moisturized, but not hot or sweaty, which I appreciate! I use this on my body and face. It is a great summer lotion. I tried it in the winter and it wasn’t that great for the dry snowy midwest weather, but it is perfect for the summer heat!
If you’re interested, you can purchase this cream at Sephora: Ultra Repair Cream
Fruit: Specifically Honey Dew Melon
This summer I’ve been eating fruit, lots and lots of fruit! Whenever there is a fruit bowl or mix, I always love the green cantaloupe, lol honey dew melon. Growing up, I never knew the name of this fruit, but found out it is a melon and is healthy for you and super delicious. So, June I’ve been getting the honey dew melon overtime I go to the market. It’s so good!!! Here are a few fruit/food pics from my snap chat this month!
Chocolate Almond Milk
So, I eat a lot, and work out a lot. Lol. Lately, I’ve been searching for the best foods to eat so that I am more conscious and aware of everything I’ve been eating. Often times, I am eating late or after a workout and needed to find the best foods for after a workout or something before bed and stumbled across chocolate milk. For the last 2 years, I’ve drank almond milk, so I tried chocolate almond milk. It was soooooo good lol. Def one of my June favorites!
Lately, I’ve been addicted to SZA. She is soooooo awesome, as an artist, creative, and person! SZA released her album on June 9th, 2017! Check out her website, breakfast club interview, and BUY HER ALBUM! She’s going on tour this fall &&&& I can’t wait to see her!

Grace & Frankie
I’ve been looking for new shows to watch on Netflix and Hulu and something told me to click on this show, ‘Grace & Frankie,’ and I’ve been in love ever since! This is a Networks original show about two women who become friends after sharing a crazy divorce story! There are 3 seasons on Netflix now and I literally watched all 3 seasons within a week or so. It is such a great show! I didn’t know what to expect, but it is hilarious and you have no choice but to fall in love with Grace and Frankie!
As the summer has approached, my desire to workout and see the physical change has increased. I’ve used the sauna before and had a random thought to get back to it recently and I’ve been addicted ever since. I have a YMCA membership and there are a few locations that have a Sauna in the women’s locker room and I try to go after each workout for at least 20-30 minutes. *FYI, drink plenty of water and do what you’re comfortable with! I drink at least 20 oz of water before I go in and leave out every 10-15 minutes to cool down, drinking more water between each session. You’re recommended to stay for only 10 minutes and you can return after you’ve cooled down. I’ve seen such an improvement in my skin and really feel like I shed a few extra calories by using it!! Not to mention it is so therapeutic. I literally feel like a new person when I walk out. Sitting in silence can be a bit dull, so I usually leave my phone on the floor by the door with an inspirational message or speech playing. I wouldn’t recommend taking your phone all the way in!
Eat Pray Love
I’ve had this book for over 2 years. I sometimes find myself in half off books buying things and add them to my book shelf. I like to read. A lot. So I like to have books that I’m interested in available so that once I’m done reading one book, I have another one ready for me. This book is awesome. It is a book that touches your heart and speaks to your soul. Liz is on a spiritual journey and shares her experiences in this book. I know there is a movie for this book, but I haven’t seen it yet, but do plan to watch it soon, just to compare lol. If you’re looking for a great book to read, check it out!!
Quote for the month:
Anything Could Happen
I’m sure you know this by now, but I try to find quotes to reflect on and live by. This is one That I have on my wall (check out my DIY post) and also on my computer to reflect on. For June, I’ve been feeling like, Anything Could Happen. . .
June was such a great month!
