My Favorite Things June 2022

by - July 10, 2022

Happy Sunday, friends. I hope you all enjoyed the first week of July. I wanted to take some time to reflect on June. It was a whirlwind of a month for me, filled with a lot of changes and a lot of bumps. But that's not what I'm here to talk about. I'm here to share with you some of the things that made the month a little bit better.

9 Things I Loved in June

Kitchen Organization - It's no secret that when we moved, we downsized. It was the right decision for our family, but it's also been a bit of a challenge when it comes to storage and deciding what to keep and what to toss. This is by far my favorite kitchen that I've had as an adult. However, there is no full-size pantry so I'm using a section of cabinets for food storage. The problem is that some food items, like cereal, simply do not fit nicely, and Alexis is not tall enough to reach snack items if they're stored in there. I absolutely HATE having my counters cluttered up, so I've invested in some storage solutions. I love these cereal containers, this bread box, and this tiered wire basket set for storing snacks.

Cat Door - The way our new house is set up, the master bedroom is off the kitchen. We wanted to be able to keep that door shut at night, but our cat needed to be able to still get through. Hence, the cat door. And if I had to get one, it was going to be a cute one. On one side it's got ears, and on the other it's got a tail.

Monat Hydrate and Refresh Mist - I know this made my summer favorites list from last month, but it's been my most-used facial product this past month. Not only do I use this as a makeup setting spray, but I also use it to rehydrate during the day. It was a life-saver during our camping trip, too, where we were outside all day long in the ridiculous heat.

Tassel Earrings - I'm not a big jewelry wearer. I've never really mastered the art of mixing and matching different pieces to create a cohesive look. I prefer to keep my creativity limited to my earrings, and these tassel earrings are the perfect accessory.

Crystal Necklaces - I've had my eye on these for awhile and finally caved and bought the set. I'm not really big into crystals, but I do like the idea behind them. Plus, they're really pretty in a simple way.

Knotted Slide Sandals - I bought these to replace a pair of slides that I completely wore out, and they've quickly become my go-to sandals the last several weeks. They go with almost everything and are very comfortable.

Distressed Black Shorts - These have been a staple in my summer wardrobe. I saw them on a list and decided to give them a try. They're very stretchy, but they were pretty stiff when they first came in. A run through the wash fixed that though. They come in a bunch of different washes and you can change up the button/zipper combo as well.
