Monthly Favourites- July 2015

The amount of times I have changed my mind about what my favourites were over the course of the month is ridiculous. This was a month of work, work, work. As I mentioned, I have finally decided to get my life in order, but the rest of the month was all about swimming lessons. I ended up having a split shift where all I was doing was teaching. I'll admit that I am one of the only ones, but I prefer teaching over guarding any day. Everyone thinks I'm crazy.

1. La-Roche Posay Ultra-Fluid Lotion SPF 60


So I'm a lifeguard. I'm in the sun all day. And I HATE sunscreen. I hate the greasiness, and I hate the way it makes my skin breakout. However, this sunscreen for my face has changed the game. I got this stuff a couple years ago as a free sample in one of the small tester kits, and I was sold. I've been using it ever since, so the label is so worn out.This has a matte finish, and it feels so good. You only need a small amount to cover your whole face. And it works. I have yet to get a burn. Please don't forget your sunscreen!

2. The Movies


I'm not usually one to go to the movies a lot, but I ended up seeing three this month. The first was Inside Out. I loved it, but a movie has never made me more emotional. There was one part where I wanted to bawl, but I had to keep it in, and I was shaking. Then I came home and talked to my mom about it, and I sobbing uncontrollably. But I actually strongly suggest this movie. I also went to see Minions. My best friend and I are ultimate fans of the minions. We made a last minute decision to go see it, and boy, it was great. Also suggested: buying the 3D Minion goggles. Last night, I went to see Trainwreck with some staff members. It was cute but also hilarious. Even the boys liked it.

3. Starbucks



I have been going to Starbucks so much this month. It's too easy to pick up a coffee when it's on the way. I've also been meeting friends there quite often. My orders: caramel cafe misto if I want it warm, caramel cold brew coffee if I want it cold, and if I'm looking for a treat then I go for the S'mores Frappuccino or a Mocha Frappuccino.

4. Relish



This is kind of weird to have on my list, but it is barbeque season. Relish was never something I had growing up because my parents don't like it. But we got this guy in a pack of three for an end of year barbeque my sister had, and I have been putting it on my hamburgers and hot dogs like crazy. I love it!

5. Notebooks


I don't know how this started, but I started throwing notebook into the bags I carry around. They have surprisingly come in handy. I take notes of important emails, write out song lyrics for parodies (which is relevant to my life), brainstorm ideas for work, and anything else. I'm one of the those people that geeks out over pretty notebooks. I was in the dollar store a while ago, and I really wanted to get some more notebooks, but I realized that I need to finish these first. Proud moment of self restraint of the month!

I think this month was all about the social engagements. I already know right now that a lot of August is going to be how to recover from a month in chlorine and sun. I see Lush in my future.

What have you been loving this month?
