Monthly Favorites | June

At the end of each month, I share things that have made me happy, new discoveries, or recommendations that I find worthwhile. Enjoy.

1. I broke one of our white ramekins (which are so handy for dipping sauces, butter, etc.) and we were only left with one, so I picked  up these textured ramekins from World Market* a couple of weeks ago. I think they’re so pretty (and might I add, affordable!).

2. I rekindled my love for crocheting this month. For a while there, all I wanted to do is knit and not have anything to do with my crochet hook, but now I am back to doing both. 

3. I was pretty happy with the soy milk I was getting at TJ’s, but to be honest, the Silk Unsweet Soy Milk* is even better (if you’re looking for a creamy real milk substitute!).

4. Have you heard of Plant Snap*? You snap a picture of a plant, the app will identify it for you and tell you more about its characteristics. This app came in so handy when I was trying to figure out what kind of plants were growing in our backyard (and how to care for them). 

5. This is my second pair of Blowfish Malibu Bungalow Sandals*(I also got them in tan) and I just love the style and comfortability.

6. I bought one pouch of this Vega Essentials Chocolate Shake* on a whim because I wanted to see how I like it. I am usually not a huge fan of pre-packaged protein shakes, but I was hoping that this one would taste like chocolate milk (and it kinda does!). I probably will buy this again.

7. In an effort to use all the makeup I have (which honestly is not that much, but still), I found the Revlon Colorstay Foundation* (in nude) that bought a while back and then didn’t like that much. I tried it again (and applied it with a sponge) and what can I say? Now, I love it all of a sudden. Maybe because it’s summer and this is a lighter foundation and all I need right now.

What was one of your favorite things this month?

  1. I recently switched to a lighter foundation for summer and it was just the right thing to do! I love those sandals, they look comfy! I have heard of Plant Snap but haven’t tried it yet, but I think I might have to download it!

    1. I love these sandals. And they’re so affordable, too.

  2. Plant Snap sounds AMAZING because there are some bushes near me and I want them for my yard but I sound delusional trying to explain it to the greenhouse people. Ha!

    1. I find it really hard to describe plants if there not the “usual” kinds that everybody knows :)

  3. That’s great the foundation is working for you now! And that app is super cool. I imagine it’s good to know if something is poisonous or something too!


  4. I love those sandals! I actually don’t own any. I’ve always been a flip flop girl, but I might need to change that. I keep hearing about the plant app and need to check that out. I’m always trying to google plants to figure out what they are.

    1. I was doing the same thing (googling plants with more or less success) and I was like “there needs to be an app for that” and sure enough… :)

  5. I’ve been using a great pen eyeliner from a new-to-me brand called Doucce, & it’s deifnitely my new favorite thing!

    1. Uh, thanks for the recommendation!

  6. That ap is super cool. I will have to download that. I am terrible at knowing plant names so that would be a good way to identify what we see on walks!

    My favorite thing from June was seeing more fresh produce at low prices in the grocery store!

    1. The app was a life saver. I had a hard time trying to google plants!

  7. I have to check out the app. How often do I wonder what that plant is called and then text my aunt. Well maybe I shouldn’t get the app and stay in contact with my aunt… Let me think on it…
