♥♥♥ June Favourites ♥♥♥

My everyday faves, Asher and Piper! ♥



Another month gone!  We are officially in the thick of summer here, and I am glad we are one month closer to the Autumn because it is tooooo hot!  Despite being glad June is over, I still have some favourites from the month:

Makeup

I am loving only having to wear a thin layer of foundation.  I am still zit-free, and so when I wake up and put on my foundation I am just covering up redness from the Retin-A Micro.  It saves me so much time in the morning, and makes putting on my makeup less of a chore, and more fun.  My makeup favourite is definitely Milani lip glosses, which you will see a post on tomorrow!

Scent

Bath and Body Works - Watermelon Lemonade!  I love citrus scents, and so I knew I would love this.  It also has the added benefit of having a Watermelon scent, which is one of my favourites.  They make this in a hand soap, as well as a scentportable.  So good!

Food

Freezies!  I recently bought a box of 154 mini Freezies.  They are only 10 calories each and come in lots of great flavours!  My favourite flavour is Cream Soda.  These are so refreshing this time of year.

TV

Halt and Catch Fire.  I love this show, and recently rewatched the first season on Netflix.  I had to rewatch the first season because I don't think I fully understood what was happening the first time around.  I love computers, but some of that stuff just goes over my head.  The second season started a few weeks ago, and it is awesome!  I highly recommend checking it out, lots of cool 80s references, and if you are a nerd like me, you will love seeing how computers evolved over the decades.

Song

Vance Joy - Riptide.  I heard this song on the radio awhile back and have had it on repeat ever since.  This song just instantly relaxes me, and makes me feel so full of the Summer spirit.  There is something so energetic about this song.  If I am stressed out and I put it on, it helps me to relax.  If I close my eyes, I can almost feel like I am at the beach with the sun shining on my face.

Movie

Terminator!  I am currently in the middle of a Terminator marathon before the weekend when I go see Genisys.  I love the Terminator series, even though the first one came out the year before I was born.  I love the actors in the new one, Daenerys for life!  I'll let you know how it is!

Fave Person

Pretty Shiny Sparkly.  I honestly cannot get enough of her videos.  I went back and started watching her vlogs over again from the beginning.  I find something so inspiring about her life.  As a professional woman who also wants to make time to engage in her creative endeavours, I think watching her videos have helped me to see that it really is possible!  She is a resident physician, and she still maintains her youtube channel, and her blog.  I work full-time as a therapist, and struggle sometimes to find the time to keep up on my blog posts.  Her videos are helping me want to be more organized, and consistent!  Woo!

Quote

It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. - Henry David Thoreau.  This quote is saying that the filter in which we view the world, and what happens to us throughout our lives will determine how we react to our circumstances.  Life isn't always going to be perfect, but we can decide how we reframe even the most difficult times, in order to help ourselves cope, and continue to increase our resilience.  I think this quote also highlights how easy it can be to become fixated with seeing all of the negative, and how we sometimes forget to notice the things in our lives we could be grateful for!
