I almost didn’t do this, because I thought I didn’t have a lot of favorites. I usually try to add my favorites to a sticky note and keep it in my planner so that I can keep up with them. So, when I went to look at my sticky note…there were about 4 things on there. I realized that I hadn’t added to it since the beginning of the month…whoops.
I have some favorite places that I went this month. We have been frequenting the lake this month. About once a week if it’s not raining (which it has been doing a lot, unfortunately), my mom, grandma, sister and I will go down and stay a few hours and then go and get lunch after.
The next place was an event for 4th of July in my state. We call it the Uncle Sam Jam. We weren’t on the eventful side this year. There are a couple places where you can park your car and then go set up your chairs near the lake. There is a particular spot where a lot of vendor and restaurants set up and there’s crafts and live music. We stayed on the quiet side and sat in our chairs next to the lake and just talked until the fireworks, which were amazing.
Next are sort of beauty favorites…sort of. I finally bought 2 things from her little beauty line that mostly consists of bath things. She recently came out with a new line, but I got things from the old line. The newer line is apparently much fruitier. I might pick up something from it later on in the year. I got her Soak Opera body wash/bubble bath and it honestly smells like heaven. Also, a little bit like shampoo, but in a good way. I also got one of her little makeup bags. I love them both so much.
This month I received my Plum Paper Planner and I really like it. I am going to be using it for school mostly and I have decided that for the beginning of next year I will be getting a new Erin Condren. I do really like the PPP, but I think i still want to keep my personal/other things outside of school separate and I just enjoy the EC planner for than. I’ll probably have more to say on the PPP once I am using it more. I haven’t actually done anything besides fill out important dates in the monthly sections.
I got a new backpack for this coming up school year. I’ve had my old North Face back pack for about 3 years now. It’s not that it’s old or worn or anything; it honestly still looks brand new. I just wanted a change, so my sister is using my old one for her last year in middle school. My new one is grey and a mint-y green color and I really like it. I am hoping that it will be just a sturdy as my last one, but I am a little worried about the straps. I only have to use it for about a year and a half, so I’m hoping it holds up.
Next is a movie, that I actually just went to see this past Thursday. It’s called Inside Out and it is such a cute movie. I think that anyone could watch that movie and leave the theater with a smile. It’ll make you laugh and cry and feel so many emotions (funny that, it being a movie about emotions, haha). I would recommend checking it out, if you haven’t already.
Next is my youtube favorite(s). I dicovered KianandJc this month. I had heard of them before and seen a few of there videos here and there, but I always thought they were kind of dumb. But, the new videos they’ve been putting out have been incredibly funny.
Next are some music favorites. First of all, the new feature on Spotify called the Discover Weekly is awesome. It basically recommends a bunch of songs every week for you and it changes over every Monday. Mine has been so spot on with all the songs. I have so much new music, I don’t even know what to do with myself.
Lastly, is really exciting. The new One Direction song called Drag Me Down is sooooooo good. I really like the path they’re taking now as a foursome. I really can’t wait fro the new album now. Honestly, Harry’s runs at the end of the songs just make you want to do terrible things. It’s so good and I hope they get a lot more respect as a band now.
That’s about it for my favorites. I do have a couple of unfavorites, sadly.
First is all the doctor appointments I have had this month. I also had a surgery, but I talked about this all in my last post, so I’m not going to do on about it again.
Next, is that we’ve discovered that my grandma has skin cancer. She had a small place on her face that looked like a little scrape/scab and she went to get it checked out and they said it was the most common type; basal cell carcinoma. They aren’t sure yet how early they caught it, but she has a few appointments scheduled to see some people. I really hope this is something they’ve caught early and can do something about it. She is honestly the glue to this whole family and I don’t even want to think about what is going to happen if something happens to her.
I didn’t mean for this to end so sad, but that’s all the favs and unfavs I have this month. August is the month of school starting and buying expensive books for boring classes. Anyway, hopefully some fun things happen at the beginning of the month that I can share in the next favorites! 🙂
