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?
