Monthly Favourites- May 2017

Happy June everyone! I can’t believe summer is almost here! I love the warm weather, and being outside instead of inside! It’s monthly favourites time again, and I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the past month. From entertainment, clothing, beauty, and a few Disney things, I’m sharing it all! Okay, let’s jump in!

monthly favourites

Entertainment

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2- I’m going to admit that I haven’t seen the entire first GOTG, but I enjoyed the second one! If someone could find Baby Groot and tell him to come live with me I’d appreciate it :). I think the story was a little predictable, but it continued the feeling the first one delivered (from the parts of the original I saw).

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn- This is a book by the author of Gone Girl, and I flew through it! It’s more of a murder mystery (which I guess Gone Girl was), but even darker. I won’t give too much away, but after kind of numbing my brain of the fact the book was about children being murdered, I couldn’t stop reading until I found out what had happened!

It’s Not Okay by Andi Dorfman- I read this right after Sharp Objects, and this one definitely had a lighter subject matter. Andi wrote about her experiences on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, and talking about what went on after filming wrapped and she was engaged. I remember watching Andi’s season, and when she and her fiancé Josh went to the premiere of Chris’ season, then announced their split later that week. It was interesting to get the backstory. Of course I’m only hearing one side, but I can definitely picture everything she said happened, happening.

Clothing

Café Forty Seven “I Like My Coffee Gilmore Sized” sweater Okay I know it’s June and I’m talking about a sweater, but it’s SO SOFT, plus I ordered it back in February and got it now. It was also fairly cold in May. Plus, it’s Gilmore Girls inspired! I love the colour!

Monthly favourites

Robe– My Aunt spoiled me and picked up a robe from the Banff Springs Hotel for my birthday! I’m a lucky girl! I’d been wanting a nice fluffy robe to wear and this is perfect! It’s super soft!

Beauty

Sweet Peach Glow palette by Too Faced- I picked this up in the Sephora Spring Sale, and I’m definitely using it! More the blush and the highlighter (I’m a little scared I’ll get too intense of a look with the contour), but I’m really enjoying it! plus, it smells like peaches. That just has to make you happy!

Sephora Spring Sale

Fitness

Nike+ coach- If you have watched my weekend vlogs, you’ll know that Ethan and I have signed up for a 15K race in October! My boss suggested the Nike+ coach section of the app (which I already use the app), and I’m loving it! It takes all of the guess work out of a training schedule, and I’ve been doing pretty well! It’s based on the date and distance of your race, plus how many miles per week you run, and how many times per week you run. You even get a progress report at the end of each week!

Disney

May was a month of change at Walt Disney World, and I thought I would mention a few things that have me all the feels last month.

Wishes- Wishes left the Magic Kingdom near the beginning of May, and it was really sad for me! Wishes is the only Magic Kingdom fireworks show I remember, and I’ve seen it at so many points in my life! I’m definitely going to miss it. Ethan and I attempted to watch the final show live via Periscope!

Happily Ever After– While I’m not going to comment much on the actual replacement show (because I haven’t seen it on person), I am mentioning how obsessed I am with the song! It’s so good! Disney just has a way of moving you when it comes to music.
