Chaotic Reads | Audible Favorites

I have always been fond of reading, but as I’ve gotten older I have strayed away from actual books. I love the collection that I have that spans from my Harry Potter series to various motivational books and biographies/memoirs. I have found audiobooks very helpful. I listen to them throughout my work day and commute.

2015 Summer Favorites

Although Fall doesn’t officially start until September 23rd which means there’s a good two weeks left of Summer, I wanted to share my Summer favorites from music to YouTubers, my top 3 planner layouts and my latest TV obsessions. Be sure to check out both my May & June favorites and my 2014 Summer favs below:

So I wanted to break up my favorites month by month, but since I never got around to doing one for July I figured I’d combine the two. Starting off with music there’s not much that caught my attention. Of course I have my Summer Vibes playlist, but as for songs that have been on rotation there’s nothing really new. I have been loving:

  • Walk the Moon, ‘Shut Up & Dance’
  • Drake, ‘Back to Back’
  • The Weeknd, ‘Can’t Feel My Face’
  • Mark Ronson x Bruno Mars, ‘Uptown Funk’
  • Fifth Harmony x Kid Ink, ‘Worth It’

The beef between Drake and Meek Mill (read my reaction HERE) was quite entertaining and I’ve been debating on whether I want to spill my dislike on “Omeeka.” Maybe. Moving on, enjoy my Summer Vibes playlist below:

Next up, YouTube! I’ve really enjoyed making videos this Summer and it’s fun when I can just turn on the camera and share whatever with the world. It’s really fun for me. My goal between for the remainder of the year is to add more vlogging. As for my favorite YouTubers, I have quite a list, but I’ve narrowed it down and noted what I watch each YouTuber for:

So since I’ve been making at least ONE YouTube video a week, I have fallen in love with my planner again throughout August. During the end of July, I really wasn’t into my planner spreads. Then I started to use the Darice sticker books that I had purhcased from Michaels and I’m in love all over again. I’ll be sharing all of my planner layouts on my Instagram, but here are my top 3 of the Summer. Click each pic to go directly to that particular Plan With Me.

Lastly, I have a new TV obsession. In June it was Hawaii Five-0 that I discovered on Netflix and binge watched over the course of two weeks. Since I’ve made the switch from Comcast to Fios, I have a new found love for HGTV. In particular, “Love it or List It,” “Flip or Flop,” and “Property Brothers.” I’ve always had a thing for people fixing up houses and the design of it all, but now I’m on this kick and those three are my new craze.

I’m so excited Fall is almost here because I am more than ready for Shonda Rhimes Thursdays and my crime shows like Criminal Minds, the second season of NCIS: New Orleans, and of course Hawaii Five-0. I’m also looking forward to Modern Family and Blackish. Lastly, I hope Scream Queens will be good.
