The first weekend of Coachella is upon us, so I curated a festival ready look for all you babes headed to Indio (& if you’re not going, this is still some great warm-weather outfit inspo.) Stay hydrated, stay chic, & enjoy the festival!
I’m not much of a coffee person, but lately I’ve been craving it like a mocha maniac. Because I can’t make a good cup of coffee to save my life, I’m not even going to try to share my own recipe today. Instead, here are some javalicious goodies for you brew babes.

How do you take your coffee?
Now that July has come to a close I thought I’d share with you babes some things I have been super into this past month.
TruMagic The Sunkisser Bronzer 110 from Cover Girl
I’ve really liked using this bronzer because it’s a cream & blends really naturally into the skin.
Super Lustrous Lipstick in the shade Siren 677 from Revlon
This shade of orange is bold but wearable. I like to pair it with loads of mascara for a low-makeup look with high impact.
The Righteous Butter Body Butter from Soap & Glory
This body butter is my everything! It smells so floral & hydrates my skin to perfection.
Sleek & Shine Flat Iron Perfecter Straightening Mist from Garnier Fructis
I use this product mostly for its heat-protection, but it also tames frizzies like a boss & smells divine.
Babe Daily (obvi!)
As my newest project this July, Babe Daily is, in fact, my babe. I’m obsessed with her & can’t wait to see how she grows in the months to come.
Greenroom Metallic Pattern Notebook from Target
I had bought a different notebook from Target that I wanted to feature here, but could not find a link 😡 These notebooks have a similar metallic pattern that’s just as chic as the one on my Mara Mi notebook.
The font Windsor Hand by Skyhaven Fonts
My favorite fonts are usually a wispy, handwritten style, & Windsor Hand fits that bill. I just love the way the leg of the ‘R’ & the tail of the ‘Q’ dip down with a little sass.
These downloads are great for both your computer & cell phone. I like to miss match mine, but if you’re the kind of babe that likes to coordinate, then Designlovefest has you covered.
10-Pack of Rings from H&M
I have massive sausage fingers (eww), so finding rings that fit is a chore. This set worked great for me because I wear them as midi rings instead of trying to mash my little sausages down into them. Practical & trendy!
Statement Rhinestone Necklace from H&M
This necklace is low effort, high-impact, & I can’t stop wearing it. It’s a perfect instant-glam solution when worn over a t-shirt & jeans.
Faux Leather Weekend Set from Forever 21
This bag duo was such a score! I initially just saw the tote & had a mini heart attack over the color. When I saw there was a minimal cross-body (that I had been so desperately searching for) inside, I died. Both bags are a good size for all the summer goodies I carry. I highly recommend picking up this set if you like a minimal look.
Crop Tops like this Baby Tee from Wet Seal (I have one in each color)
Maybe it’s just that I love anything high-waisted, but I can’t get enough of crop tops this summer. I just bought a pair of overalls & I can’t wait to wear them with a fitted white crop top #90sbabe
Hi, I’m 5 years old! I like to have a bowl of charms as a dessert. It’s too deliciously terrible to be my breakfast.
Did I mention I’m 5? Another treat. I’m too impatient when it comes to Pop Tarts, so I don’t toast mine; I like them raw.
Sweetened Black Iced Tea from Starbucks
Black Iced Tea is always my beverage-of-choice, but this month has been especially heavy on the Starbucks runs, so I’ve ingested more than usual. It’s just so damn refreshing in the heat (always). Now I’m going to have to make a stop today…
Poached Eggs (perfected here)
If you haven’t already noticed, I very much enjoy breakfast foods. Eggs are my favorite ingredient (the can do so much!) & lately I’ve been having them poached. They’re so soft & yummy and the best over toast. Is your mouth watering too?
The Maison Metallo Candle in Amaranth & Jasmine from Voluspa
I know candles aren’t too much of a summer item, but I like to have a fresh scent in the house & candles are a great way to get one. This candle smells very strongly of intense floral. Once lit for 30 minutes, my whole apartment has a lovely stink going.
The Home Collection Wooden Wick Candle in White Peach from Febreze
This candle is more about sound than scent for me. The wooden wick crackles like a bonfire & warms my soul. The peach scent is fresh & fruity and screams summer.
I didn’t purchase this print in July, but I have been enjoying its July-esqu motif greatly. My heat skipped a beat when I saw it on Etsy, because this swimmer is so me. I’m all about a high bun, red lip, & no boobie constriction!
My Balcony Flowers
I’ve been spending a lot of time tending to my little balcony garden & it’s become of point of pride. I potted all my plants into tin cans I ½ sprayed with chalkboard paint, and they line the ledge on my balcony. Every morning I water them & the rest of the day I admire them through the window.
Music- Lana Del Rey’s new album Ultraviolence
Lana Del Rey is probably my favorite artist. Her longing, melancholy vocals waft deep into my heart and pump through my body making me feel like I’m a tortured soul. This new album did not disappoint on the tortured soul front. 5 stars!
Literature- Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls by Leandra Medine
Another brunette babe, Leandra Medine (of The Man Repeller) wrote a wonderfully fun collection of essays which I read with my ears via audio book. The book has a great dose of personality, and I found it all so charming & relatable. I recommend it immensely.
TV/Film- Seasons 1-3 of Bob’s Burgers on Netflix
Because my boo was away most of July, I had a lot of personal Netflix time. I’d seen the first season of Bob’s Burgers when it first hit Netflix, & figured I give it a re-watch. The kids are ridiculous characters & it’s just so funny.
Misc.- Canon Sure Shot Owl Point & Shoot Film Camera
This camera is a relic from my boo’s sister’s college days. It’s a bit of a random favorite for me, but I’ve really been enjoying snapping images here & there. Hopefully they come out alright (I’ve had bad luck in the past with film). If so, I’ll post some on here for you babes to creep.
So there you have it! If you have any questions about the products I’ve used, where to purchase something, etc. don’t hesitate to leave me a comment!
