July Favorites

Here are my favorites from the month of July. As a reminder, I share my favorites from each month, and then at the end of the year, I narrow it down further to a 'best of 2022' list! I'll link to past months in 2022 at the bottom of this post! If an item is included on a monthly list, it means I am *passionate* about these items.

Phone Case// I love Diane Hill's work. She is an artist out of England and she is so talented. I have purchased several of the phone cases that she creates with her work on it. The case is very durable and always saves my phone AND it is beautiful. So many times I see beautiful phone cases but they are not exactly the most durable. 

Lounge Dress// I LOVE this dress. It feels very 1950s vintage to me in terms of the style. It's fully lined so I wear it out of the house as an actual dress. It's adorable and so well made. I got a size small and find it to fit roomy. 

Cetaphil Cream// I've written about this many times before but I don't think it's ever made a favorites list. This is my favorite body cream. It's inexpensive, has no scent, and it's thick and very moisturizing but sinks in pretty quickly. I have been repurchasing this for years! 

Travel Leather Catchall// I have all 3 pieces in this travel jewelry set. I put the small case in my 2021 favorites so it is about time I put the catchall in my favorites because I use it so much. It's a beautiful leather tray that is substantial in size but collapses flat making it easy to pack. I take it on every single trip I go on. I keep things that I would normally keep in my bedside drawer in that tray and I use it as a place to put my jewelry so I don't end up losing anything! 

Cream Blush// This is hands down the best cream blush I have ever used. It goes on so smoothly and is incredibly easy to blend. I just use my fingers. A little goes a long way. 

Pearl Clip Set// My sister introduced me to these adorable hair accessories. At under $10 for a set of 4, they are a fun little pick-me-up. I get compliments from strangers when I wear these in my hair! I think this is going to make such a good stocking stuffer during the holiday season and would make for a cute Favorite Things type gift. 

Lip Balm// This is a newer lip balm for me. I love my Sugar advanced, which is $26 and this is a close one to that and $7 less! I just love Susanna Kaufmann products SO much. The brand is pricey but worth every penny, in my opinion! 

Cuticle Balm Stick// This is a new favorite beauty product for me. It's cuticle oil but in balm form vs liquid. I love it for travel and easy application! 

Crossbody Bag// I can't believe it has taken me this long to add this little bag to my favorites list! I did a blog post review on it back in February, so check that out! I highly recommend it! 

Linen Pants// You all know by now how much I love these linen pants. They basically feel like you are wearing pajama pants! 

Lorissa's Beef Sticks// This is a snack that I continuously re-purchase. I love beef jerky and this comes in stick form. It is the best snack for me to keep in my bag and is just overall so easy to transport and also have on hand. They are absolutely delicious.

Body Serum// If you don't know, Niacinimde is one of those 'magic' skincare ingredients. It evens out your skin tone, can reduce pore size, helps prevent or reverse signs of aging, and more. I learned about it many years ago when I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the Proctor and Gamble headquarters and they had been doing extensive research on the ingredient. Anyway, I was sent this body serum in a PR package from Paula's Choice and I started immediately using it and have been SO impressed with it. It feels like a gel moisturizer in terms of texture and weight but I have been using it on my chest and my feet. Using it on my feet is probably something a little odd but my feet have so many scars on them- I am a klutz and am always tripping and stubbing my toe, getting terrible blisters, bug bites, etc. and I am not kidding when I say that the serum has been lessening the appearance of these things!!! Also, my chest can get really freckled in the summer months, and ever since my wedding (since my chest was shown quite a bit) I am so conscious about using skincare on my neck and chest! Anyway, I highly recommend this product, I LOVE it and will be purchasing it once this is empty! 

Bonne Maman Four Fruits Preserves// I don't really eat much jelly, but when I do, Bonne Maman is my go-to brand. I usually buy strawberry but we just tried the four fruits preserve and it might be one of the best preserves I have EVER had. So deep in flavor. This is definitely going to be my go-to flavor from now on.
