Happy end of July! If you're anything like me you've probably been spending the entire month inside trying to avoid the sun. Yes, I did dip in the pool a few times this month but let's face it, July in Texas is not ideal. This month I've been doing a ton of working and a ton of reading. I managed to book a few up and coming trips for the fall so stayed tuned for that! As for my monthly favorites, let's get right to it!
THINGS I'M LOVING
Spin Class | When I first moved back to Texas it was Spring, and I found myself running outside. However, May came and the torrential downpour that lasted for weeks on end prevented me from going outside to workout. When the sun finally showed itself again it was June and it was too hot to even sit outside let alone run. I stumbled across Revolution Studios on Instagram and I decided to give this spin studio a go. I had signed up for spin in college but it turned out to be a huge waste of money as I barely went. After my first class at Revolution about a month ago I was hooked. The instructors are SO motivating and the atmosphere is amazing. Yay for spin class!
Postagram | This nifty little app is a favorite of mine. As I am in a long distance relationship I try to send snail mail to Jon every couple of weeks, just as it's something nice and different to do. Postagram has made my life so much easier. Instead of going to the post office every time I want to send a card I can do everything right on my phone! This app lets you create a customized postcard, pop out picture included! It's a really neat app and I have to say I use it pretty frequently!
Bath & Body Works Candles | One of the best things about living in America is I can burn candles again. My candle collection is overflowing thanks to Bath & Body Works. Every time I step into this store there are at least 8 new candles on the selves I haven't tried. My favorites right now? Praline Pecan Cobbler and Amsterdam Tulips & Windmills (stereotypes smell good, okay?).
Smoothies | If you haven't noticed (and if you haven't I'll smack you across the head), it is hot outside. Like, ridiculously HOT. I'm taking 102F/39C hot. My favorite way to cool down at the moment is to grab a smoothie. I still haven't mastered the art of creating my own delicious smoothie at home (I'm not the most skilled person in the kitchen) so I have found myself frequenting Jamba Juice this month.
Snapchat | While I have been using Snapchat for years I've finally realized it is time to use it to it's fullest potential. I'm opening it up to YOU! Add me at sararosedavis to see what I get up to on the 'reg' (so hip, I know).
