I seriously can’t believe that it’s August already, this past
month year has completely flown by. I’m still trying to get a grasp on settling in after our mini vacation, why is unpacking always the worst?!
Clothing Purchased: I couldn’t help but pick up a few more swing dresses from Old Navy because they are crazy affordable, perfect for work and beyond comfortable. I also grabbed this super cute Blue Jays t-shirt from Walmart before we left for only $13! If you’re looking for sports apparel but don’t want to spend a fortune, definitely check your local Wally World as scary as that place is. The only downside with buying anything from there is how ass backwards their sizing is, I literally tried on over 10 different shirts before finding one that actually fit me decently enough so I would leave the house in it.
Home Items Purchased: Besides the necessities, I don’t really think I’ve purchased anything new for the home besides a new essential oil to diffuse. I’m still trying to get the final touches organized and packed away then we will fully start with decorating the inside, room by room. I’ve been seeing a few cute items from Homesense pop up on my Instagram so I’m dying to check my locals stores out next week when my family comes up and we get some shopping done.
Where I Went: Toronto, duh! I’ll have a recap up sometime next week but maybe the week after seeing as it’s a long weekend again and I’m on vacation again.
What Movies Watched: I made B watch Clueless on the plane last week and poor thing was mortified but I loved every second of it 😉
Recipes Tried: We had his friends over for dinner the other week and I made the most delicious mediterranean kabobs that we cooked on the grill. I don’t remember the exact recipe I used but they were super simple and mainly consisted of chicken, veggies and pineapple but oh my gosh, the mix between the spices and pineapple added the best taste.
Favorite Blog Posts of the Month on HKB: I really enjoyed writing my updated morning skincare routine but that could be because it literally took me over a week to finish LOL
Favorite Blog Posts of the Month: Around the end of July, Eleni posted an amazing article giving you some tips on Influencer Agreements. It seems like there are new Networks popping up monthly and regardless of if you work with clients through one or direct, it’s good to know the ins and outs of what you could be getting yourself into.
Reading: Nothing at the moment! I somehow lost a box of books during the move and I can only find the ones I’ve already read or have no interest in reading. I was going to pick up The Couple Next Door to read on the plane but I had myself convinced that I already own it and guess what? It’s nowhere to be found! What are you current book recommendations?
Hope you had a fantastic month!
