10 Things I'm Loving This Month

by - June 23, 2020

I've decided to make my 'favorite things' posts a more regular thing. It's a nice way to share some of the stuff I love that wouldn't make it onto the blog otherwise. Unfortunately, several items on this month's list are no longer available, but I'll link to similar items where possible. Another title for this post could be "All the Things I'm Using Repeatedly While Recovering from Surgery" because these really are all the things that have been making my life easier the past few weeks. So without further ado...these are a few of my favorite things!

Armchair Pillow - We ordered this specifically for my recovery. This is the exact one that I have but it appears they've added some features since I got mine in the form of extra pockets and a lumbar pillow. The biggest pro is that it's memory foam so it doesn't get all flat. The only con, for me, is that it's got that memory foam smell from time to time, so you may want to invest in some Febreeze to spray it down with.

Bohemian Earring Set - I was really nervous about ordering these for some reason, but I finally gave in. They came individually packaged and are good quality. They're also much prettier in person.

I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf - If you're a reader, you need this book. It's a collection of comics all about reading. They're clever, funny, and 100% true.

Blackhead/Acne Remover Kit - Words really can't describe how much I love this little kit. I've got one place on my chin that I have never been able to get completely clear until now. I use it on my nose, cheekbones, chin, and t-zone, as well as my husband's back. Definitely worth the money.

Amazon Essentials T-shirts - I ordered these because I couldn't find the white t-shirt I was looking for one day earlier this month. Of course, I found it as soon as I clicked buy, but it's a couple of years old so it's getting pretty worn. These are fitted, soft and stretchy. I ordered my usual size medium and don't think they shrunk in the wash. They come in a bunch of color combos and are a great price point.

Dip Dyed Tee - I'm not really into tie-dye, but I can get behind the dip dyed trend. Sadly, this and most everything I ordered from Old Navy around Memorial Day is no longer available. I was able to find a shirt that looks almost exactly like mine here.

Leopard Print Maxi Tee Dress - Loose dresses have been a nice alternative to workout shorts or pjs, and this one really is gorgeous. Unfortunately, the leopard print is sold out but they do still have all sizes in the solid black.

Polka Dot Skirt - Once again, this particular skirt isn't available anymore. It hits right above the knee, has an elastic waist, and is unlined. They do, however, have a midi option that's really pretty.

Athletic Works Core Soft Gym Shorts - While I would love to be wearing nothing but jogging pants these days, we've officially reached the point of summer where it's too hot for pants. Luckily, these athletic shorts feel like jogging pants. I have them in the olive green, teal, red, and gray.

Stretchy Headbands - I'll be the first to admit, these aren't exactly fashionable, but it's really hard to have manageable curly/wavy hair when you can't bend over to properly style it. That's where these babies come in. They've been keeping my out-of-control hair out of my eyes without the inevitable headache that comes with traditional headbands.
