All The Faves | July 2022

Jul 30, 2022 | Lifestyle, Monthly Favorites

I can’t believe we’re already this far into summer! Being on the coast of NC, the summer weather tends to stick around a lot longer than most areas, but I’m still looking forward to fall! For my favorites this month I’m sharing some bookish things, my new favorite wall art pieces, and more!

Bookish Things

Thriller Reader Mug: One of my favorite planner sticker shops Sweet Bean Plans has started creating new products including coffee mugs! I finally got my hands on one of the coffee mugs and I’m obsessed! I can’t wait to grab another one soon!

Book of the Month: I’ve only been subscribed to Book of the Month for 4 months, but I’m loving it! They always have a good variety of picks and add-ons, and you get a hardback for cheaper than retail! Sign up here with my link to receive your first box for $10.

Home Decor + Lifestyle

Window Shop Gal Art Prints: I’ve been on the hunt for some fun art prints ever since we moved from our 1 bedroom apartment to our 3 bedroom apartment a few months ago! I wanted a lot of the art to reflect things we liked, so when I found this shop I instantly knew I had to buy some prints! I ended up purchasing the Luke’s Diner Retro Poster, the Tree Hill North Carolina Retro Vintage Travel Poster, the In Omnia Paratus Poster Heritage Edition, and the Hawkins Indiana Retro Vintage Travel Poster.

Cloud Nine Candle Shop Wax Melts: I’m a huge candle and wax melt person! We have several wax warmers throughout our home, and I’m always switching up the scents (especially for the new seasons!). I recently placed a huge order with Cloud Nine Candle Shop and I am in LOVE with every scent I purchased. It all smells amazing and I can’t wait to place another order soon!

Beauty + Skincare

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides: I’ve been using this collagen powder for almost a year now. It’s one of the only collagens I found that I could use in water, smoothies, or coffee (because it has no taste) and was gluten-free! I’ve seen a big improvement in my skin, hair, and nails since I started using this.

Find Your Happy Place, Dr. Teal’s, and Buff City Soap Bath Products: When we moved into our new apartment, the thing I was most excited about was the bathtub (we didn’t have one in our last place)! I take a bath several times a week, and I love bath products! Bath salts, bath bombs, scrubs, etc. I always have a ton of stuff to use on hand! Lately, I’ve been obsessed with all things Buff City Soap (the bath bombs, bath truffles, and shower fizzy’s are a must), bath salts from Find Your Happy Place, and Dr. Teal’s bubble bath and scrubs.

Dashing Diva Nail Strips: These things are a must for my manicures! Nail polish, no matter how long-lasting, chips on my nails. Dashing Diva nail strips last two weeks and won’t chip! I love that they always have great seasonal options to pick from too! I can’t wait to grab some for fall and Halloween!

Hello 27!

Wow... How on earth am I already 27?! I honestly still feel like I'm 19 and still trying to figure things out (haha)! Year 26 brought so many great things: 2 years of marriage/7 years together with my hubs, a full year at my job, a year for us in Wilmington, and more....
