Monthly Favourites- June 2017

Happy Summer everyone! My favourite season is here, but man is it busy! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for 2 years already, and we’re already halfway through 2017! It’s monthly favourites time once again, and I’m sharing some of my favourite things from the past month with you! From entertainment, beauty, a recipe, and more podcasts I’ve discovered, I’m sharing it all! Okay, let’s get started!

Entertainment

Big Little Lies- If you checked out my favourites last month, or the trip recap I posted a few weeks ago, you’ll know that I’ve been on a reading kick lately! I remember seeing previews for the HBO show “Big Little Lies” when it first came out, and I didn’t even know it was a book! So of course I had to read the book before watching the show. Well, I did both in the month of June! The only downside was I thought there were 8 episode of the show, and there were only 7. I couldn’t believe it just ended! Ethan thought it was hilarious. You can check out the book here.

Pirates 5: Dead Man tell no tales- I went to see the final (?) film in the franchise, and while it wasn’t the greatest movie I have ever seen, I did enjoy it! I haven’t ever seen the 4th one, but this one definitely reminded me of the original 3, which I remember seeing in theatres when they came out.

 

Lady Antebellum: Heartbreak– Their newest album came out this month, and I really like it! I’ve seen Lady Antebellum in concert twice, and they are about as far into country music I go. I wish I was going to see them this summer (I think they may have already come to Toronto?), but I will just listen to the CD on repeat instead.

 

Beauty

Joe Fresh lip gloss in Fresh Glass– I bought this on a whim, and am really happy I did! While I’ve been into lip stains, I like a neutral gloss to put over them to keep my lips moisturized. This one does the job perfectly!

Bath and Body Works body lotion in Velvet Sugar– My Mom got this lotion in a goodie basket of some kind and gifted it to me! I’ve been using it recently on my legs when I get out of the shower, and it makes them SO SOFT. The smell isn’t too strong and is neutral enough that I really like it!

brush cleaner– I got this in the Sephora Spring sale (see what else I got in the sale here), and I LOVE IT. You can see it put to work in the video at the end of the post, but I’m so happy I bought it! The smaller size was out of stock, but I’m actually glad I got the full size, because it give you room to swirl the brush. Since I use my Naked 3 palette pretty much every day, I can use this to swap colours without setting the bush wet at all.

Recipe

The better burger– From the cookbook Quinoa Revolution (but also available on the internet via the link) this veggie burger is SO GOOD. Ethan and I love making a big batch of these and keep them in the freezer for lunches or dinners in a pinch. You can find the cookbook here.

podcasts

I found some new podcasts this month! Both of them are related to the bachelor universe, so I will detail them below. One thing to note about both of them? They have ads (which I totally understand) but they are SUPER cheesy.

The Almost Famous Podcast– hosted by Ben Higgins and Ashley I, they talk about what’s currently happening on this season of The Bachelorette (which I’m actually not watching), and so many more topics. It’s a weird combination, but I really like the dynamic of the pair!

Off the Vine– hosted by Kaitlyn Bristowe, she drinks wine and talks about a bunch of different things. She’s had Spencer and Heidi Pratt as guests, Shawn B (aka her fiancé), as well as her best friend all on the podcast, and they are FUNNY. I think my favourite things might be with Shawn B, when they talk about the things that went on behind the scenes on The Bachelorette, and when they talk about their life together.

A Disney Obsession is 2!

You guys, I feel like I just wrote this post for last year! A Disney Obsession is 2! I can’t believe I have been blogging for two years!

A Disney Obsession

 

Let’s take a short walk down memory lane. Remember when the blog looked like this? (I cringe only a little when looking at it, lol)

A Disney Obsession 1.0

Now I feel like I’ve really found my blogging groove! I plan on sharing a post this month in what I’ve learned in my second year of blogging (like I did last year), but today I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of your support! I had no idea what I was doing when I started this little blog of mine, and while I still don’t know everything, I have learned a lot! I’m proud of myself for sticking with this, and I still really enjoy sharing with you!

A Disney Obsession

I feel like I have changed so much since I started this blog, and so much has happened! There are so many things coming up that I can’t wait to share with you all! From buying a house, to planning a wedding (which I will have a post about soon), life is pretty busy right now! I wouldn’t have thought either of those topics would be something I would cover when I started A Disney Obsession, but here we are and I will continue to update you guys!

If you haven’t already, please sign up for my newsletter, because I have some plans for that coming up!



Thank You!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for supporting this hobby of mine! I really can’t express how much it means to me! 🙂 I hope you are enjoying more of a look into my life in the weekend vlogs going up every Friday, because I really enjoy filming them!

If there’s something you’d like to see here on the blog or in a video, please let me know in the comments below, or even send an email to Kelsey {at} adisneyobsession.com!

Thank you so much for supporting A Disney Obsession, and here’s to the next year!
