My Favorite Things in May

I've put a lot of effort this month into myself. That might sound a little silly, but I often find myself putting off buying things or making changes that would make me happier or more comfortable. I'm not talking big stuff... as you can see below.

Come check out some of the new(ish) finds this month that I am LOVING.


Caress Orchid and Coconut Shower Foam - I am obsessed with the way this smells. And it lingers. I can smell the Orchid smell ALL DAY LONG. Plus the fact that it is a foam is extra amazing. I've been on the search for a shower gel/soap that I love for months and this is finally my answer. I am now on a hunt for all things orchid scented.

Everlane Day Market Tote - This has been my new work bag for a little over a month now and it is exactly what I wanted. It fits it all - my computer, notepad, book, smaller purse... anything else I could want. I take it everywhere. Can't wait to try it as my travel bag too.

Charcoal Toothbrushes - This is my "second-time" toothbrush I am trying to make sure I really brush my teeth at least 2-3 times a day and I always use my electronic toothbrush at night. For the other in-between times, I am now using a charcoal toothbrush and I love the way it feels. It's also supposed to help with whitening.

I'll Be Gone in The Dark - I've talked about this book so much that I can't remember how much I've actually written about it on the blog. The point is - they caught the Golden State Killer months after the release of this book. Oh, and they caught him pretty darn close to where we live. So this book consumed my reading this month. And was worth it.

Sweat: Kayla Itsines Fitness App - It is great to have a scheduled workout that isn't too long right on your phone. It also integrates your step count and a menu plan that can add some great healthy inspiration to your diet. I'm not a die-hard here - meaning I'm not following this 100% exactly. But I feel comfortable making it work for me. That is the important thing. Oh, and she is Greek!
