It’s time for month-to-month favorites!

Right here is every part we used and beloved during the last month…


Boll & Branch Sheets – Now we have had these sheets for yearsssss and they’re, fingers down, the most effective sheets I’ve ever owned. They actually get higher the longer you employ them; can’t suggest them sufficient!

Scrub Daddy Sponges – I used to be by no means, ever a sponge particular person till I attempted these years in the past and I can’t think about utilizing anything! They clear so effectively, you don’t want to make use of a lot cleaning soap and it’s simple to squeeze out the surplus water/cleaning soap and let dry.

Rubbermaid Brilliance Containers – I really like, love, love these containers! These are those we use: 9.6-cup capacity (for prepped produce and large-size leftovers), 3.2-cup capacity (my favourite “all-purpose dimension), and the 4.7-cup capacity (that is deeper than the three.2-cup however the identical dimension, so that they stack completely!).

Stanley FatMax Power Station with Air Compressor – My brother-in-law acquired this for my husband numerous years in the past once we have been having a variety of energy outages and it’s superior. You need to use it as an influence station to cost issues for as much as 10 hours, and it additionally comes with an air compressor that will get TONS of use over the summer season in relation to pumping up bike tires and basketballs. (If in case you have a Sam’s Membership membership, they’ve the same model for less.)

My Issues

J.Crew Factory vintage slub cotton tee – I fell in love with this tee this summer season… it’s the excellent weight (gentle with out being skinny) and I felt prefer it hung good on me. I had additionally tried the girlfriend tee, however felt it was a little bit too quick and boxy for my body.

J.Crew Factory vintage slub cotton tank – The tank model! Tremendous gentle and funky, I find it irresistible.

Vigoss Jagger Bootcut Jeans – I acquired a pair of those for my birthday and so they have grow to be my favourite denims. They aren’t tremendous stretchy and have some construction to them, and match me so, so effectively.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo – I found this dry shampoo years in the past and have by no means used one other since then. I feel it’s the best possible and eliminating any greasy buildup and making hair look clean, dry and contemporary.

Gimme Beauty hair ties – My go-to! And now I purchase them for Isabelle too. I really like that they by no means get caught or tear your hair.

Books, Music & TV

Jack Ryan Season 4 – This season acquired higher and higher because it went alongside! Upset that that is the final season, however hoping for some kind of spinoff or continuation!

Luke Combs’ cover of Fast Car – Completely in love with this cowl, can’t get sufficient.

Demon Copperhead – This began very slowly for me, however as soon as I acquired about midway via, I plowed via it. I’m so glad I completed it… It was a unbelievable and splendidly written story, albeit tragic, heartbreaking, and eye-opening. 

Malibu Rising – I appreciated this, I might give it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It didn’t fairly hold me as invested and on the sting of my seat the best way Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo did, nevertheless it was nonetheless an pleasurable learn.


The Hardy Boys Starter Set – My husband purchased these for Joseph a few months in the past, and he has LOVED them. He reads nearly each evening earlier than mattress and is at the moment on guide #5. (For reference, he’s 8.5 years outdated, going into third grade, and a really impartial reader.)

LCD Writing Tablet for Kids – This was gifted to Dominic final 12 months when he was first admitted to the hospital and he and Isabelle have used it practically on daily basis because it entered our home. Writing letters, drawing photos, easy addition issues, tic tac toe, they use it for every part. An enormous, big hit right here.

Shut the Box Game – Joseph first discovered of this sport at college throughout inside recess final 12 months and he beloved it! So at Christmastime when he acquired a sport that he already had and did an change, he selected this one. It’s a enjoyable fast sport that’s nice for studying some math and technique.

Balsa Wood Airplanes – These have been an enormous this summer season; I’ve even gotten into seeing how far I can get them to go 😄 (although I’ve gotten a pair caught in a tree!). Now we have those linked right here with the little touchdown gear, in addition to the regular ones without.

Guardian Bike – We acquired this for Joseph for his birthday again in January and he has ridden it continuous this summer season. My husband did tons of analysis on bikes (since that is probably one Joseph may have for a few years earlier than needing to get a much bigger one) earlier than deciding on this one and was actually impressed with how well-made it’s.
