June Obsessions

/

Obsession — An idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind.”
-Oxford’s English Dictionary



June is definitely my favorite month out of the year, specifically because it’s my birthday month!  And I found some great gems this past month that made it even better!

1.  The Elizas by Sara Shepard.  Yes, I am one of those people who think the Pretty Little Liars books are better than the tv series.  And I definitely enjoy the rest of Sara Shepard’s books.  This one gave me some Gillian Flynn vibes, but not as creepy.  There’s two parallel storylines and a somewhat predictable twist, but I definitely could not put this book down.  I’d recommend it if you like psychological thrillers and want a quick read.

2.  Starbucks Mango Dragonfruit Refresher.  If this drink wasn’t so expensive, I’d probably drink it every single day.  It has the perfect amount of sweetness, but it’s not too sweet if sweet drinks aren’t your thing.  Like the name suggests, it has a hint of mango and tastes mainly what I assume dragonfruit tastes like, since I’ve never actually had it before.  Also, the bright purple color makes for some great pictures.

3.  I Want That Wedding!.  TLC wedding shows are some of my go to shows.  I used to like Four Weddings, but I got turned off by the constant competition surrounding weddings.  However, this show lets you see multiple different weddings, but no competition is involved.  The show starts with a couple who has different views of what they want and how much they want to spend on a wedding.  The couple then attends three weddings fitting each of their requirements and determines which wedding they want for themselves.  This show definitely gets a thumbs up from me!  Mark this on your calendar on Saturdays at 9 pm.

4.  tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer.  Raise your hand if you’re a pale gal like myself.  Since it’s summer, I thought I’d try out some of tarte’s bronzing/tanning products.  While I haven’t delved into their self-tanner as much as I want to give a good review, I have been using the bronzer a lot.  I absolutely love this bronzer.  It gives me the perfect sunkissed glow without making me look orange.  I’ve been using the Sonia Kashuk blush brush, which I got in a Target Beauty Box, and it’s a perfect duo.

5.  Take Two.  I’m actually watching this show as I’m writing this review.  I super enjoy shows where someone who has no background in law enforcement/private investigation helps a serious professional solve crimes.  This show is in a similar vein to Castle (one of my favorite shows) and Deception (I’m still not over it being cancelled).  I also like Rachel Bilson shows, even if she does overact a tad.  It’s on Thursday nights at 10 pm on ABC.

6.  (Bonus!) Nordstrom Lingerie Waffle Knit Short Robe.  If you’ve ever stayed at one of the deluxe hotels in Disney World, then you likely know how amazing the robes in the rooms are.  I’ve wanted one for a few years now, but the ones in the gift shop are not the same.  So after I found this one at Nordstrom, I knew I had to have it.  Thankfully, my mom gave it to me for my birthday and I love it.  It’s the perfect length and so comfortable for after showers.  I’d recommend going a size up if you want it nice and roomy.

What amazing finds did you make this past month?  Let me know so I can check them out!
