JULY 2020 FAVORITES!

Hello everyone,


I haven't done a favorites post since last year. It's not that I haven't had any new discoveries...I just have been focusing on creating other ideas, which have kept my mind busy and freshly inspired. 

However, July is perfect for sitting down and sharing with you a few highlights in my life because I love the summer and in many ways I've had an interesting month. It has been unpredictable, fun, sunny and really worth documenting. How fun would it be to look back on this post in a year or two and see what I have been loving? Also, I'm super curious to know what you have been loving as well, so don't be shy to share your thoughts with me!!!😉 


In a way, I'm feeling a bit nostalgic about this month because summer is slowly slipping away. I wish I could magically freeze this season. I can't get enough of the hot days, the vibrant colors, the fun summer getaways, the music that keeps my heart beating...TODO!💛


Here I am...saying goodbye to July with these awesome experiences and new favorites I've made!  

1. Climbed The Highest Peak At Mountain Charleston

     
This one is a WILD one, guys! I swear it was so extreme that I'm still recovering.

Out of the blue, my sister and I climbed the highest peak at Mountain Charleston and it was all her fault.🤣 Hear me out! 

So almost every weekend we go on hiking trips, ones that are bearable, fun and don't make me feel like I can't breathe. Well, this past weekend, things turned out differently. We endured on a hike that I will honestly NEVER, EVER repeat. I don't know yet if I should be happy or cry about it because it was everything we didn't plan or expect. But what can you do? Life is a climb! hahaha 

While we climbed I begged my sister we stop. She never listens to me!!! After eight hours of steep uphill climbing we were on top of the world. Keep in mind with only a backpack of three bottles of water and two energy bars. I know we are LOCAS! Somehow this keeps repeating...being unprepared! I don't even know what more to say!

Turns out this is the highest mountain in Clark Country and Spring Mountain at 11,916 feet high. It took us a full day...from 9 am to 7 pm. It's difficult to even put it into words. All I can say is it completely challenges you not only physically, but also mentally. Thankfully we had one another to help us keep going, so we make it out alive!💕
  


2. Drunk Elephant Set🐘 

      
This is one of my absolute favorite brands. I've used a lot of their face serums and eye creams. If you can recall, I even included them in previous favorite posts. This time I wanted to try their shampoo, conditioner and body cleanser for the first time. Literally, the best trio for a shiny, healthy, nurtured hair and body!!!

If you aren't familiar with Drunk Elephant, I beg you to check it out. You can find it at Sephora! This set of products I've been using throughout the month of July. I couldn't have asked for anything better. I will definitely continue using this trio in August too! Will have to repurchase it soon as I have tiny bit left.
   

3. "Sh*t Your Ego Says" by James McCrae  

     
       
Not only my favorite book for this month, but my overall favorite for this year so far. It will definitely make a positive difference in your life, especially now with the way this year has evolved. 

So many times and in so many ways, our egos make us feel less than. It keeps fighting for our attention and tries to wash away things that we have spend years building. To overcome your ego and learn the tricks it can play on you, I recommend you give this book a read. Plus, it's written in a very compelling way...I finished it in three days!😱

I loved the stories the author shares in this book. As well as the thought process, which we can all relate to because it's something each one of us faces in our daily lives. Some days are easier, other days are more challenging! 

Enjoy the read!📚

4. Scarf As Tops and Hair Accessory 

 
     
Something else I have been loving in July is making use of all my scarves. I've been using them as a hair accessory. Just wrap a pretty scarf around your high-bun as many times as you want. I like leaving the ends fly in the wind a bit. 

The bigger scarves I've been wearing as a tube top. All you have to do is fold the fabric into a triangle, tie the two ends around your back and you've got a cute top. Literally, it's so fun and looks great because I've got these cute print scarves, which otherwise I don't use often. Now they're out in the open, not collecting dust in my closet. hahaha! 

How do you wear your scarves? Have you tried something else other than wrapping it around your neck?
   

5. Home Decor


This has taken a bit more time as my sister and I have tried to rearrange and make something enjoyable out of every room in our apartment. There is a bit more left to go, but it's coming together nicely. I quiet like the tropical and seaside vibes we've decided to go for. Plus, we've added more plants to make each room feel more like an outdoor oasis. Once we're completely done, I'll share in a future post, my ideas on ways to refresh your own home on a budget. Would you be interested in seeing that?

Personally, wall art is my favorite part. It adds personal touches! Whenever you walk into a room, you can tell a lot about a person from their wall decor. Their personality shines from the wall...hahaha if you know what I mean!


Here we are! We've reached the end of my monthly favorites. What are some of yours?...please share them in the comments below!🥰

  8. I am very, very glad that you and your sister made it through the ascent to the peak of Mount Charleston and subsequent descent.
    I hadn't heard about Drunk Elephant brand skincare products at Sephora, but as long as they're vegan and cruelty free its wonderful to learn of these products for skin health.
    'Sh*t Your Ego Says Sounds a great book for help achieving positivity.
    Those scarves are beautiful, and I love the creative ways you style them into outfits - gorgeous!
    Of course it would be fun to see the interior decoration you and your sis have been doing.

  16. Hello dear Radi, hope you had a nice week so far!

    Oooh my... this summer is being really odd here :( I hope you're enjoying this season, at least you're able to travel around your state :)

    I missed this section on your blog (PS, loved that you said TODO haha), so your recommendations are always welcomed and it feels nice to read your personal experiences with products but also with things and moments.

    I love Drunk Elephant, just trying the Protini cream and I got myself the Marula Oil, I'll tell you but I'll keep an eye in these products too! Specially the c vit!

    And climbing the peak sounds great, but exhausting, never done this before but I'll definitely want to try at least once!

  33. Congrats on climbing that mountain but do take care in the future. Mountains can be dangerous and a person really needs to be prepared to climb them.
    I see you had a fun month. Nice decor!
    To answer your question, I do love wearing scarves in different ways. I often wear them as belts. Great look with that white scarf worn as a top. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with scarves.

  34. You're definitely a pair of LOCAS!! Woww!! I love hiking but that would be too much for me! Anyways, congrats for making it to the top! hahah ;)

  41. I've been challenging myself to explore other clean brands other than my beloved Biossance. I've been trying out and loving Herbivore Botanicals, but I'll need to try Drunk Elephant, as I've heard SO many great things, especially about their serums.

  46. What a fun post, Radi! Love your favorites! I'm wondering...if you got to the peak at 7PM ... did you stay up there all night? Or did you walk the 9-10 hour journey back down and in the dark??? Also, that book ... I think I was meant to see it because I know someone who is struggling with negative thoughts. I plan to share when the right time presents itself. I'm curious to read it too!

  48. I´m such a summer lover too, the weather ist not that good, as we´re used to it from the last years, but I enjoy every single minute outside in the sun. I love being at the lake, catch up with friends and being outside the whole day. Have a wonderful rest of the summer, love x S.Mirli
