The summer is absolutely flying by and as much as I look forward to glorious fall weather I want this summer heat to last as long as possible. I love being surrounded by green and walking outside with bare skin and that feeling of the sun on my face. I am so grateful for my job but I absolutely hate being stuck inside all day with air conditioning. I’m always freezing and spend a lot of time daydreaming of sitting out in the sun and soaking in as much heat as possible. I’ve been inspired by Essie Button’s vlogs to focus on home decor again and I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’ve really fallen in love with modern decor. I definitely appreciate bright, simple Scandinavian design with that modern touch buuuuuut I need a little more color and mess. I’ve been really holding back on decorating because we’re renting and I just don’t feel like we really own the space so why put a lot of effort into filling a space that we will be moving out of in a year or so (fingers crossed).
Anyway, back on topic. I’ve been browsing West Elm, Ikea, Dot & Bo, etc. for pieces we can add to our home to add that modern twist that I’m looking for. Also, as per usual, I’m constantly adding items to my Sephora cart that I may eventually splurge on (by the way, I recently achieved VIB status…. I’m not sure if I’m impressed or a little horrified that I’ve spent that much). Ever since I started washing my hair less often I’ve been heat styling almost every time I do shampoo, which was a big change for me but I thought I had to in order to stretch out my wash. I’ve been wanting to air dry my hair more again so I want a great styling product that is meant for air drying, which brings me to the Bumble & Bumble Don’t Blow It. Finally, I STILL want the New Balance sneakers for fall and I could always use some trays to help me organize my makeup and stuff. To fulfill all my wants and desires, this is my July wish list:
1. Bare Minerals READY Eye Shadow 2.0 in The Top Shelf $20, 2. Woven Shaker Chair $184.99, 3. Preaching Good Vibes Throw Pillow $34.99, 4. Cosmetix Stax Vanity Trays $7.99-12.99, 5. Bumble & Bumble Don’t Blow It $30, 6. New Balance 420 Navy Vintage Sneakers $118, 7. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette $58
Updated 1/29/2017: I finally purchased the chair and absolutely love it!
