June 2016 is officially over. While June was a great month I am personally thrilled to welcome July, primarily because I am excited to head out of town for the long holiday weekend. I have so many fun plans in the works for July, I know it is bound to be a memorable month.
As I previously mentioned I started a new role at Amazon earlier this month. It has been wonderful spending time learning about my new team members and my new position. I love working in fashion and feel honored to work with a group of individuals with such rich experiences and backgrounds.
I started using Audible at the beginning of the month and it’s safe to say I am obsessed. While I don’t find the same pleasure listening to a book as I do reading a book I do love the convenience of audio books. I can listen in the car while stuck in traffic, I can listen while cleaning my apartment, I can listen at the gym! This month I’ve listened to Happier at Home, The Girls, I’ll Drink to That and Bad Feminist. I’m taking a mini break (because I’m spending too much on audio books…but I would love your reading suggestions for July)!
After a coworker suggested a brunch restaurant combined with a flower shop I knew I could not resist. I grabbed Jordan and begged him to try it out with me, we liked it so much we ended up visiting two weekends in a row. Not only is the ambiance lovely (who can resist coffered ceilings and fresh flowers?) but most importantly, the food is delicious. I loved the avocado toast and the beet, fennel pomegranate salad the best!
Game works Date Nights
I visited Gameworks with Jordan for the first time at the beginning of the month. I am NOT a video game person at all. I mean I played The Sims when I was 14 but that’s the extent of it. However, Jordan and I have had several Gameworks date nights throughout the month and really enjoyed ourselves. We primarily stick to arcade games (throwing balls to hit down clowns, skee- ball, etc) and it’s been a lot more fun than I would have imagined. Still, my favorite game at Gameworks is the Photo Booth, I’ve made Jordan pose for a mini photo shoot with me every time.
Taylor Swift Tom Hiddleston Love Gossip
I’ve been a die hard Taylor Swift fan for like ever and I have to admit I was slightly heart broken when Taylor and Calvin called it quits. My post Taylor-Calvin wounds quickly healed when news broke that Taylor was cuddling up with a handsome brit. Sure the #Swiddleston romance has been a whirlwind but as a hopeless romantic myself I can’t help but feel happy for Taylor (and shamelessly read every article that mentions the couple).
Mom’s Bridal Brunch
My Mom is getting married on July 9th, this month we had a small celebration brunch in her honor. With a gorgeous view of the water, mimosas and fresh seafood and crepes it was lovely to take morning to celebrate my Mom. I finally ordered my dress for her wedding and now the big day can’t come fast enough!
Orange is the New Black
I binge watched Orange is the New Black a few months back and then read the book because the show intrigued me so much. Though I can’t seem to remember the birthdays of some of my best friends the release date of Orange is the New Black season 4 was embedded in my mind for months #ImportantThingsInLife. Needless to say I’ve already finished season four and oh my gosh it was so intense! Is it too soon to begin the countdown for OITNB season 5?
I would love to read about your June favorites! What are you looking forward to for the month of July?
