Monthly Favourites: June 2016


I don't want to talk about the fact that it is the end of June. Before we know it, summer will be over and my poor, sunshine-loving heart is not ready to accept that. Anyway, here are the things that I've been loving this month!


Song: I could honestly list off 5-10 songs that I have been loving this month but I will try to keep it at three. First up is "Thank God You're Holding Me" by Emily Hearn. Do you ever listen to certain songs and think that if there was a soundtrack to your life, that song would be on it? (No, just me?) That is this song for me. Next is "Like I Dream" by The Spacies. I've recently become obsessed with their music but this song is my favourite. I need them to release a full-length album right now! Finally, I am loving "Inside Out" by The New Electric, which I mentioned in a Sunday Lately post this month.



Read: I recently started "One True Loves" by Taylor Jenkins Reid and I've really been enjoying it thus far. In terms of blog posts, I've been loving Caroline's and Stephanie's recaps of their trips to Greece. Consider it added to my travel bucket list!

TV Show or Movie: We finally finished Scandal and my life hasn't been quite the same since! (Okay, not really, but I am missing Fitz in my life..). Since then, we started watching How To Get Away With Murder because we love Shonda Rhimes, basically. So far it's quite good (not as good as Scandal though) but there is only one season on Canadian Netflix and we are nearly finished already. Any recommendations for what we should watch next?

Beauty Product: The Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Face Palette, duh. Did you expect me to say anything different? I've actually even grown to love "Amaretto" and in fact, it's probably the blush that I use most frequently! I've also been loving this foundation which I picked up at Walmart for $12.99. The finish is absolutely gorgeous and it lasts longer than my Nars Sheer Glow foundation.

Food: Chicken kabobs are a summer staple in our house and I'm certain that I could actually eat them every day! Boneless chicken, mushrooms, red onion and peppers, sprinkled with Montreal Chicken Spice and grilled on the BBQ. So. Good.

Purchase: 
I finally purchased this brush after having numerous people recommend it to me and I must say, it is worth the hype! I have thin, fine hair that tangles easily. Without conditioner, I would not be able to get a comb through my hair, much less a brush. I've been using a white-tooth comb forever to comb my hair after I get out of the shower but just a regular brush to dry my hair which resulted in many tangles and a whole lot of frustration. This brush has been a game-changer for me!

I also made two super spontaneous purchases last week. One being a new Rebecca Minkoff purse which I haven't received yet but I am sure it will be a favourite! The other is an inflatable hot tub. I know, right?! One of my coworkers was selling hers for cheap so Jordan and I decided to buy it! I've been wanting a real hot tub forever but obviously I cannot afford that right now, plus it doesn't make sense as we are not planning to stay in this house long-term. While the inflatable one isn't as hot or as spacious as a regular full-size hot tub, we are quite impressed! This is the one that we have!

  3. You just reminded me that I need to re-purchase this brush! I LOVED it (I think I got it in a Popsugar MustHave box or something), but left it in a hotel room with a bunch of other hair products when on vacation (sads).

    I have the same problem with tangling and taking forever to brush out my hair (I still use a pick that I've had since my perm in 6th grade *lol*) — it's like I have baby hair!
