Did July fly by, or what? This whole summer seems to be going very fast- idk if it’s all the work or the weather being mostly crap, but I can’t believe it’s almost August! Anyway, here’s some things I’ve been loving this month…
This tea subscription box is a familiar staple in my favorites posts nowadays ^ July’s group of teas was extra perfect as it included a green, oolong, black, and herbal that were all delicious! If you haven’t heard of Simple Loose Leaf, they send 4 different teas every month for only $9 which is such a great deal. If you like tea or want to try something new, I totally recommend them!
The next fave is an app ^ it’s called ColorSnap and it’s actually a paint finder, but there’s this cool feature where you can find shades from an uploaded picture. So even though we aren’t painting our apartment or anything- it was super fun to see all these beautiful samples from my photos! Something to play around with (:
I’ve been mastering the art of the French braid this month as it’s getting hotter and I’ve got a lot of hair ^ I think I’ve got much better since my first attempt, with all the practice I’ve had. We also dyed our hair last month! I got the regular bleach for Justin since he’s already pretty blonde & got the ombré kit for me cause I just wanted slightly lighter ends. For at-home color, they came out really well! What do you think?
A few more random faves ^ who doesn’t enjoy Snapchat filters when they’re bored? I’ve been loving having fresh fruits at home to snack on. The peaches we got recently were so juicy and sweet, they went perfectly with an egg on English muffin for breakfast. I got new cases from Kroma- they’re still running the buy 1 frame and backplate, get a second backplate FREE promotion + they’ve got new Marzia collab designs to pair with her summer Linee collection! I matched this to my nails by using my favorite shade of dusty pink polish…
Old pictures ^ finally got these from Justin’s phone a while back and was waiting for a fitting post to add them to! Out of the vault pics from months ago after a college grad party for one of my friends from back in high school. I loved my outfit and look how HOT Justin looks (with his natural hair color haha). Checking out old photos is so much fun, that’s why I take so many!
The last 2 are together in some of these pics ^ my fave faves of July are my lovely bug print blouse by ASOS via Depop and my incredibly gorgeous new necklace by Tiffany from my wonderful boyfriend. The first was something I saw Marzia wearing in one of her older videos, so naturally it was sold out on the original website. I found a girl selling one online and grabbed it right away! It was coming from across the pond, so it took a little bit to arrive, but I’m so happy it fits. I actually gave it to my mom to bring to an alterations lady to have one more button added to the top because without it- I feel like I’d have to wear another layer underneath to not be showing everyone my bra or more. Now, I just have to visit my mom again to have the newly improved top in hand! The latter, is the most precious piece of jewelry I’ve ever owned and coming from the most precious person in my life makes it even more important. He surprised me with it for no apparent occasion than him having extra business success this month. I am blessed to have such a romantic sweetheart as my partner. He’s always my favorite (:
