June has been an amazing month! I started as a full-time employee at my company, read some AMAZING novels, and Orange is the New Black came back!
And what better than a three day weekend to celebrate! We’re spending the holiday in Dallas, a brand new city in my book, and I hear they have an awesome fireworks show. 🙂
Happy Fourth of July! How will you be celebrating?
Some Necessary Reading
Ann Patchett teamed up with Parade Magazine to curate a list of The Best 75 Books of the Past 75 Years. I can’t say I agree 100% with this list, but I love that she included her reasoning behind each pick. That said, everyone’s taste is different and creating a book list like this is so personal, which is why I absolutely love reading them. What would be on your list?
A Summer Treat
I have been OBSESSED with peaches this month! Besides our usual fruit salads for breakfast, I’ve been playing around with different recipes to use up our peaches – that’s where these Peach Fritters come in. They couldn’t be easier, and they’re absolutely delicious! Perfect for a late Sunday brunch or last minute dessert. Next, I’ll be trying this recipe for Peach Cobbler!
A Summer Cocktail
Usually I’m partial to a glass of wine or a classic Salty Dog, but now that it’s summer, I’m dying to try out this recipe for Palomas – pretty much a fancier version of a Salty Dog, but with tequila, perfect for that summer heat!
New Makeup Palette!
Ok, so I haven’t purchased this yet, actually I’m still on the fence about it, but the new Tarte Grav3yard Girl Swamp Queen palette looks beautiful! I’ve heard a few conflicting reviews on the palette, especially concerning pigmentation and fallout, so I’m hoping to see it in stores before I buy it. Did anyone snag this online yet, what did you think!?
I’ve been spending a little too much time on YouTube lately, especially on BookTube channels like Peruse Project and Books and Quills. I have some serious bookshelf envy after watching, but I love finding new ways to discover new books! What are your favorite BookTube channels?
What were your favorite finds in June?

I love book lists like that, it’s always so interesting seeing what other people love 🙂
Thanks for linking to the Ann Patchett article! I remember someone mentioning it at work, but couldn’t remember the exact details to check it out, so problem solved.
I’ve been on the fence about getting the Swamp Queen palette bc do I really need another palette but I’m from the Swamps!
I really enjoy Ariel Bissett‘s Books tubes. She’s loud and funny.
Glad I could help!! And thanks for the BookTube rec, I love loud and funny!
