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.

June Favorites + Summer Vibes

Another month has come and gone and it’s time for another round of favorites. It’s crazy that we’re halfway through 2015. Check out my favorites of the year so far below:

Ok so getting into this months favorites there are a few Apps that I wanted to share. Two are games and the other is a picture editing app. So first up, the two games are Languinis and ToyBlast. I heard of Languinis from one of my favorite YouTubers, Kayla Lashe (akaydoll), and it’s a mix of bejeweled and the typical word games that continue to reinvent themselves. You match up colors to reveal letters and you make words to meet the challenges of each level.

While I was obsessed with Languins the first half of June, my obsession with ToyBlast is insane. I’ve seen a lot of YouTubers talk about it, but first heard about it in a video from Sarah Rae Vargas. In the game you get to match up the colored blocks, but when you match up a certain number of blocks you can get a rocket, bomb, or cube which helps to win each level. It’s pretty addicting. I don’t stay hooked on games often and I was hooked on Soda Crush for a while, but this is by far my favorite.

Moving on to Netflix. I’ve starting watching NCIS, yes I know I’m so late as the show is in season 13. Hey I’ve watched Criminal Minds all on Netflix, NCIS looks to be a keeper. In the span of two weeks I’ve watched my latest favorite show that I can’t wait to add to my fall watch list, Hawaii Five-0. McGarret is not only hot, but I’m just in love with the personality of the character. If you’re into action, shooting, blood, and unnecessary antics, this show is for you. Such a good series and I really hope it can stick around past season 6. The new season will debut this fall beginning September 25th on CBS.

As for my fashion favorites I’ve been loving maxi dresses simply because they’re so effortless. I’ve also been loving my latest treasures from H&M, my statement necklaces and midi rings. Lastly, my sandals from Old Navy have become a daily staple. I wish I would’ve purchased them in different colors. Check out the related posts below:

Lastly music, because it wouldn’t be a monthly favorites without music. I’ve compiled a Summer Vibes playlist and it’s a mix of some old and new and I’ll be adding to it all Summer. Enjoy!
