July Favorites

I feel like July flew by in a total of about 3 days… and I’m pretty sure that’s the kind of talk I used to hear grown-ups saying all the time. Sigh…

No matter! It has been a brilliant few weeks and I’m looking forward to an incredible August. I hope that you’re enjoying your summer as well – whatever you’re up to! Don’t forget to make time for a little sunshine, if you can!

Here are some of my favorite things I’ve discovered in the month of July.


MusicWatching the Storm by U137

Put your headphones on. Turn up the volume. Close your eyes and just listen. I stumbled upon this little beauty randomly while listening to Spotify on one of my jogs. Which is hilarious because it was wedged in between some heavy dubstep number and a bubblegum pop anthem. It’s an absolutely gorgeous instrumental piece that will simultaneously encourage you to change the world, lay your head on the car window, and mentally visualize a movie trailer of your life. This song embodies freedom.

Book | “The Princess Bride” by William Goldman

princess-bride-01

If you can believe it or not, the first time I saw this movie was about four months ago. (I laughed, I cried… it was marvelous.) So then I thought, “Maybe I should read the book to further evaluate just how incredible this tale of love, adventure, and fire swamps is.” I was not disappointed. (I laughed and cried some more.) It was a fun escape after a long day of work, school, and all of the other tedious parts of life. There is a little something for everyone – mostly the child at heart.

You can purchase the ebook on Amazon.

Fashion | Nike Flyknit Lunar 3 Women’s Running Shoe

After years of using my bright pink freerunners from Nike (which I loved dearly), I finally pulled the trigger and bought myself a new pair of running shoes. It was like love at first sight. These shoes make me feel like I’m flying! I have the unfortunate predicament of flat feet but these puppies have the perfect amount of arch support. No more swollen arches! They are in Light Aqua, Persian Violet, University Blue, & Black. And I rock them EVERYWHERE.

You can purchase a pair at Nike.

Beauty | Herbivore Botanicals X UO Hair Perfume

“Who actually uses hair perfume?” was my only thought when a friend recommended it to me after I complained about the smokey odor of beach bonfire still slightly lingering to my hair after a good wash. But after one use, I was hooked! I chose the scent ‘rose’ which very much smells like a freshly picked flower. UO also offers a vanilla scent.

You can purchase this on Urban Outfitters.
