June 2020 Favorites

We are halfway through the year. How unbelievable does that seem? It’s felt so long (going to thank quarantine for a lot of that) and has been short in some ways too since so many events that highlight different seasons and months have been overlooked. I realized that I never shared my May favorites, so I wanted to make sure I didn’t forget to share what I loved in June before too much of July passed by. Honestly, it was kind of challenging to come up with what to include in this list, but I think it sums up the items I’ve been using and loving the most this past month.



Ever since switching to a reusable K-Cup awhile back, I feel like I’ve become more of a coffee snob. I have no reason to be one since I truly don’t know that much about coffee, but buying a bag of coffee usually lasts me nearly a month so I don’t mind spending a little bit more on a bag of ground coffee since it’s a lot cheaper than the price of the number of k cups I would use. Well, my most recent coffee find is not only delicious but also really affordable. I tried this coffee after making it on set for a shoot one day and just opened my second container. For lack of better knowledge of how to describe coffee, it’s smooth and delicious. 

I realize that it may have come across as irresponsible that I was attending workout classes again without sharing some of the ways the studio I go to has been ensuring the health and safety of those of us in class. While I know it can’t guarantee that the virus won’t be a factor there, they have gone to incredible lengths to clean the studio, eliminate contact, cut the class size by half, and keep us moving during the heat of the summer. I have been much better about being in my routine now that I have been able to go back to true40. They still have free online workouts on their website if you want to give those classes a try but don’t live near a studio. I will say that I’m definitely feeling sorer after each class now that I am back in person since I found myself not working quite as hard independently at home. 

I am borderline addicted to this game. It has been the best $10 I’ve spent in a long time. It’s a nice mix of skill and luck and allows you to play a “game” of Monopoly in the span of 15 minutes. It’s also nice because you can play it with as few as two people. I have probably played over 50 rounds of the game since getting it last month and know that that number will continue to increase as I introduce it to more friends. 

While it’s still a little early in the summer to make this call, I think my one shoulder bathing suit from J.Crew will be my bathing suit of the summer. Each year I feel like there is one that I reach for more than others, and so far, this has been that one. I love that it ties both on the shoulder and in the back, making it adjustable and secure. For being a fun cut, it’s still full coverage and really comfortable. It comes in a variety of colors, and J.Crew has a bunch of different style bottoms that you can pair with it to complete your suit. 

I had never heard of this show when it came out, but it has been my most consistently watched show this past month. It involves space, survival, and a lot of action, which is an unexpected combination that I’ve really enjoyed. I’m now in season 2 and find myself wanting to watch another episode just to know what will happen. If you’ve found yourself wanting a new show to watch, this one has multiple seasons and is bound to be liked by girls and guys alike. 

Y’all know I LOVE pajamas, so including these was a no brainer. PJ Harlow was kind enough to send me a few pieces this past month, and I probably wore these pants for well over half of the nights this past month. They are a silky soft material that is cooling and feels really luxurious. I’m tempted to get a pair of their shorts, but honestly think I would still reach for the pants since I love the way they feel and want as much of the fabric on my skin as possible. 

I’m not sure if I’ve ever included alcohol in a favorites post, but Blue Moon’s Light Sky beer is changing that. I like the taste of beer and know I can count on Blue Moon to the point that a lot of time at breweries, I’ll ask the bartender which of their beers is most like a Blue Moon (which they probably hate). This is a lighter version made with tangerines that’s refreshing and delicious. IF you’re not usually a beer person (and you’re of age), maybe give this a try to see if you like it. 

I think that sums up what I’ve loved this past month, but I am already working on my July list since there are a few products that are already making the cut. I’d love to know what products top your list for the past month!

  1. I'm going to my favorite workout class again, Solidcore. While some people may not agree with that decision I know it's best for my mental health. Not only do we have to wear a mask in the studio (until on the machine) but they're now implementing temperature checks and wiping machines down both before and after class
