In this post, I want to talk about 3 of my favorite things of July 2023. I thought it was about time to talk about something other than the thing that shall not be named. I want to be positive and tell you about things I enjoyed this past month. By the way, how are we almost in the month of August and where was the sun??? Why does summer not stick to its script? We just want sun and good vibes. We can’t be going from snow, rain, skip the sun, and back to fall with rain! But I am rambling and this was going to be a fun and positive post. So here we go. My favorites of July 2023.
I have spoken about this Storytel app before in a previous post and I am loving it. I have made it a mission to start reading books again in 2023. I am doing well but I don’t always have the time to sit and read. As you know adult life is busy and with lots of responsibilities. Once done with things like cleaning my house or doing the laundry, I am too tired to sit and read. The Storytel app is great because I just listen to my books instead of listening to all the songs I have listened to a million times. I did a trial and I am hooked. I signed up.
I have finished the book The Mountain is You by Brianna Wiest (which I LOVED!!). I am currently listening to The 4-Hour Workweek by Timothy Ferris. As I am listening to this I realize that I am on the right path.
This seems like it’s a sponsored post but really I am not on that level…LOL!! These are truly things that I have loved this month and the past month. I DON’T like cooking one bit! I can cook but I don’t like it. I don’t want to think about recipes and at one point I think I became friends with all the take-out delivery people. This wasn’t good for my wallet or my weight. I wanted to try Hello Fresh for a while now but thought it was too expensive. But I was spending way more on ordering or going to my local grocery store every day of the week.
Hello Fresh -Easy Recipes
I love how simple the recipes are. I choose the easy ones because I DON’T like standing in the kitchen for too long. I chose the 3 days a week option and honestly, I eat for 5 days because I live alone. The app guides you through it and you also receive the menus in your box. I now send pics of my food every time to my sis and best friend because I feel like a CHEF 😌
Natural Hair/ Braided Ponytail
I have been loving my natural hair this last month. I always have braids, crochet curls, locs, etc. I do this because not only does it protect my natural hair but I also just love experimenting with new looks. Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t let me rock my fro but I am enjoying that I am letting my hair breathe. My go-to now is a braided ponytail (see pic) and I LOVE IT! I always rock these big hairs to hide my face but as I am growing older, I am loving myself, including my face more and more. I never liked it but that’s a story for another day. I also have the loveliest/ best friends/ sisters who always hype me up to love myself more and I guess it’s working so a shout-out to them❤️
Talk to you soon
I am going to end the post here because I feel like I can write for hours today. I don’t know what got into me. Thanx as always for taking the time to read. Let me know your favorites in the comments or you can also let me know on Instagram.
