I know we’re only a week into July, but somehow June already feels like a lifetime ago. It felt, somehow, both extremely busy and extremely low-key at the same time, as odd as that sounds. Anyway, here are my favorite things and experiences from the month.
I actually have a whole post on this jacket, but it’s such a highlight that I wanted to mention it here, too. It’s one of those things that I didn’t realize how much I’d appreciate until I had it! I didn’t know how much I was struggling wearing “regular” jean jackets until I found this adaptive one, as funny as it sounds. It’s just so easy to get on and wear, and I can still easily move my arms around. And, you know, it’s super cute!
I’m going to do an updated beauty post in a few weeks, because I’ve found some new products that I’ve really been loving. Glossier’s Brow Flick is one of them. I have never used anything more than a tinted brow gel before, because I didn’t feel like I was able to master anything more complex. This is seriously the simplest thing I’ve ever used, and looks polished but natural – my brows still look like me, and not over the top, when I use it. I really love it – I add the brow gel on top and I’m good to go.
This was a little bit of an impulse purchase – it was my favorite book as a kid, so cute, and under $50, so I kind of just placed the order without thinking too much. But I’ve actually already worn it so many more times than I would have expected! It’s a fun little touch of whimsy to my outfits, and can fit a surprising amount of things. And it has a magnetic snap that I can open and close by myself! They have lots of other book titles to choose from, too.
Taylor Swift Eras Tour
I mean – this was, by far, the highlight of the month for me. I had been looking forward to the show for so long, and then it was somehow finally here, and it was amazing! I am truly impressed by how much of a production Taylor manages to make her concerts – there is clearly so much thought and attention to detail, and effort to make the show a night to remember for everyone, no matter where you’re sitting in the stadium. She is just a powerhouse and I felt so lucky to be there – it’s a night I’ll never forget.
I just really loved this book – I read a lot of books that I loved in June, but I flew through this one so quickly and was immediately invested. I really, really appreciated the disabled representation in the main character, and how part of her journey was coming to terms with her own needs and limitations. And, of course, I really enjoyed the romance! It’s a fun read and easier to get pulled into than a lot of other fantasy books I’ve read.
