I LOVE favorites posts and currently type posts. They are always a fun way to find new things to try and really just to see what is going on with your favorite bloggers. So I figured I would jump on board and share my current favorites for summer!


Current Favorites For Summer

Favorites to Watch: I have been watching a TON of Olympic Trials, especially the swimming and gymnastics. I have also been rewatching Everwood and catching up on House Hunters.

Favorites to Listen to: I have been obsessed with the new Lumineers and Avett Brothers albums. I highly suggest both of them. I have also been loving Podcasts of course. You can see my favorites in this post here.

Food and Drink Favorites: The Starbucks Peach Black Tea K-Cups* and Creme Brûlée Flavored K-Cups* are on a constant rotation in my kitchen! Seriously they are AMAZING! I am also loving their Sweetened Black Iced Coffee*. Y’all. Life changing! Huge shout out to Starbucks for sending me those and so much more in my Spring box of Starbucks goodies.

Favorite Makeup and Hair products: When we have gone out on date nights lately I have been using this Urban Decay palette* and the options are endless. There are some colors I would have never tried, but honestly just light layers of them really make my eyes pop. It’s a great palette to invest in! This Kerastase Hair Spray* has been keeping my hair looking somewhat normal in this heat and humidity this summer! To mix up my pedicures lately I have been rotating through the OPI Retro Summer Collection* and I can’t get enough of the colors! My favorite is “what’s the double scoop?” I was sent the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Hairdryer* and my old hair dryer is now in the guest bathroom. This hair dryer is the best one I have ever used. It’s light weight (I’m talking it feels like less than a pound) and it dries my thick hair super quick. Win! Can’t live without the Sugar Lip Treatment. All day err day.

Favorite book as of late was Emily Giffin’s new book, First Comes Love*. I recommended it in my Summer Reading List post now that it’s on book shelves I think everyone should grab one!

Favorite clothing: I am living in Lululemon Yogi Racerbacks. They are loose fitting and so perfect for hot days. I am also living in Nike Juvenates for the gym and my tried and true Tory Burch Sandals for everything else. Summer = easy clothes.

What are some of your current favorites for summer? I would love to check them out!

      Taco Tea gets me every time. My current fav is their Mango Black Tea. I could drink that by the gallons. I love that racerback too. I don’t normally shop at LLL but I live in workout gear, so I really need to step up my game.

      I love these types of posts as well. I just shared one myself. 🙂 I’ve yet to try the sugar lip treatment, but keep hearing a lot of good things..guess I need to make a purchase. Love the Lululemon racerbacks…I much prefer wearing a loose fitting top to classes at the gym like spin. Happy Friday!

      I’m obsessed with anything OPI. I’ve been a nail tech for 10 years and love it! And Tazo iced tea in any flavor…a must have for summer!

      That Urban Decay palette looks amazing! I usually stick to neutral colors but may have to try incorporating some of these fun colors into my routine!

      I may have to look into that hair dryer! I don’t dry my hair very often (it takes SO LONG and it’s SO HOT in the summer – ha) but I finally dried my hair the other day and my hair dryer DIED! 🙁

      Awww, thanks so much for sharing your list of summer favorites 🙂 I LOVE!!! Lumineers, too. I’m still disappointed that I missed them while I was in Amsterdam 🙁 BUT another one of my musical favorites these days is Michael Franti–check him out if you haven’t already. He has a new album out and it’s perfect for summer.

      Also I’ve been living in the same tops myself 🙂 Much too hot for anything else!

      I love that those nails colors aren’t too brash – haha – sometimes the summery choices just seem so over the top! And I had no idea the Lumineers released a new album! Checking that out today!

      What a fun post, I haven’t done a favorites post yet but do enjoy reading others. Liked getting to know a bit about your favorites for Summer!

      My drink lately has been the Starbucks Iced Coffee K-Cups. I’m an iced coffee addict 🙂 I’ve heard good things about Lululemon but haven’t tried out the brand!
