June 2015 Favorites
Instead of doing a weekly Links Lisa Likes, I’m going to start doing a monthly favorites where I share not only my favorite posts of the month, but also my favorite things. This can be books, movies, podcasts, clothing, whatever!
June went by super fast for me! The Fiance and I got a bunch of wedding planning done, which is always good. Other than that, work has been picking up and I’m keeping up as much as I can. Nothing I can’t handle, though!
one – I’ve been wearing these Aviator sunglasses almost everyday! I love huge sunglasses and these fit the bill. I didn’t know these were men’s until today when I looked it up online but who cares – I still really like them!
two – This Contigo water bottle goes with me everywhere I go. Mine is actually bright orange, so it’s hard to lose and quickly brightens my day just looking at it. Staying hydrated is incredibly important, even while we’re in a drought!
three – When I saw these Marley Smile Jamaica In-Ear Headphones at Target, I was obsessed. I love the wooden design paired with the bright teal details. I use these every single day when I’m listening to podcasts on the way to work! The only thing I’d complain about, though, is that they don’t have volume control buttons on them. But that’s not really a big deal to me.

Still Shaken Up…
Honestly, I’m still trying to figure out what to do next after this scare. I’ve been reflecting on my life a lot lately and whether or not I’m really living up to my potential.

Pixar does it again! As a young girl, I always tried to fight off my emotions. This movie addresses the importance of all of our emotions and it does it in a very entertaining way. Pixar is great at creating movies that are truly family friendly – everyone from the kids to the grandparents will enjoy it!
My favorite character was Sadness. I’m weird like that 😛 But all the other emotions/characters were awesome in their own way. Anger was pretty hilarious – I saw a lot of myself in him and Sadness!
To Do’s Before I Do
As an engaged bride, I’ve been devouring almost everything wedding related, especially when it comes to being organized and saving money.
So when I stumbled upon To Do’s Before I Do – I binge-listened to all the episodes in one day! Shaina is incredibly easy to listen to and the episodes are relatively short so it doesn’t take up too much of your time. The podcast is full of real advice for the organized bride who strives to be a Bride-Chilla, not a Bride-Zilla.
How was your June? Any new favorites pop up in your world?
