Heartfelt Favorites of June
June is such a sweet month! It welcomes my favorite season - summer. Summer is a time of magic, of adventure, of fruition. I love the dreamy, hazy days of late Spring/Early Summer. Sundresses with a cardigan. Pastel sunrises. Flowers are vibrant and lush. Everything feels alive. Everything feels ready. Ready to bloom. Ready for the sunshine.
I’m here to share my favorite June joys - the things that make my eyes sparkle with passion.
Giving up alcohol has been one awe-inspiring journey. I love the fact that I can go to restaurants / bars and order a tasty drink without the alcohol. They also are so fun to make! I love this pretty one by Black Star Mocktails! For this one - Wednesday in Beirut – A Pink Peppercorn and Rose Mocktail - check out the delicious recipe!
Journaling is such an effective tool - whether it’s for cathartic, creative or a way to track progress - it can help you stay organized, boost your mood and unleash your artistic side. There are so many different ways you can journal. I personally love Bullet Journals lately and as I’m on this exciting journey in my life I want to pick one up and start. Bullet Journals are an analog system created by Ryder Carroll, a Designer based in New York. In his words, the Bullet Journal is meant “to help you track the past, organize the present, and plan for the future.” It’s a system that keeps a record of everything you could ever want. It can be your task manager, sketchbook, journal, scrapbook, and much more.
Atrio Tile Jewelry
I instantly fell in love with these gorgeous, tiled jewelry. The tiles are from Portugal and give off such elegance and gorgeous, summery color. Shop Atrio for these lovely must-haves.
‘Tis the season for flowers! Whether it’s the magic of a pretty peony or the dreamy vision of hydrangeas outside, I am in love with flowers. Having fresh blooms in my apartment adds color, life and a sweet petal fragrance.
Beaded & Basket Bags
Summer is here and the hot trends in handbags are also a throwback to the 60’s and 70’s. Basket Bags are such cute, summer accessories that look perfect paired with your preppiest outfit or your maxi bohemian dress. Beaded bags are fun and if you find the right one, also very functional. They add a unique, retro pop to any outfit. I like finding beaded bags on Etsy for true vintage finds! For basket bags, I love the line Street Level. I’ll have upcoming posts on my picks for my favorite basket and beaded bags! Stay Tuned!
Adorning your hair with sweet, girlish accessories has become all the rage and I personally love it. Antique-looking pearl barrette, rhinestone clips, silk scarves - oh so dreamy and whimsical! They add charm and shimmer. One of my favorite trends of recent!
