July Favorites | July Jams


These are stuff in July that made me forget about the global stress we’re all under. Feel free to skip around any section that interests you. Don’t feel the need to read every single thing from beginning to end, just ones that you are curious about! Also, sorry if I repeat some stuff from June ♡♡♡


x I have a lot. Once I already have the separate posts dedicated to my hauls of restock (after not buying anything for 6 months), I’ll be sure to link each individual links in this section. 

x CND Nude Nail polish for sure. It lasted so long and I didn’t need any curing equipment. 

x Nyx Bare With Me Setting Spray 

x Peach blush in Frisky Business (Colourpop) 

x Sakura Palette by Violet Voss: I love the shades, Party, Tokyo, Delicate, and  Season 

x Sunset Striptease by Wet n Wild (Contour) 

x Elf Sugar and Cream $3 (Dupe for my Dolly Wink Peach Shadow; I am so happy!!!)

x Blair Waldorf inspired nails: All Bark by Sally Hansen & (Espresso Brown) && Shooting Star by Sally Hansen (Rose gold, gold hex, silver hex glitter topper), && Goldilocks in LA Girl (Pink brown gold) && Sentiment by LA Colors Hypno Holographic (Pale pink gold)

x Organizing all of my hair ties + hair accessories in one place 

x LA Girl Colorful Glitter in Feisty (It was a pain to remove even with acetone but it is so pretty!!!) 


x I use to hate cereal with a passion because they just feel too sugary for me and now I’m into them. Not the sugary stuff. I found more brands this month that I liked other than the Kellog’s strawberry and plain one. I like plain cheerios paired with strawberry apple sauce (Zeezees). I like the little monster designs :D 

x M Tea Matcha pudding sinkers! 

x Takoyaki. I never thought I’d be that octopus-crazed person but I miss this every time I eat everything from the bowl. First time I tried Takoyaki, I didn’t like it at all. But now I do :3 

x Kimchi fries

x Cake + Steak 

x Coffee in a red mug + Pasta 

x Ginger ale + noodles 



x Boris DLC for 54 cents was such a steal. 


x Being Featured on Fashion Pot Luck’s Weekly Favorites & Making it to the top of their treelink list for my newly released ASMR content. They also featured me on an Instagram post, highlighting three of my videos I’ve mad. I’m a beginner at ASMR and I’m very grateful for their support. If you didn’t know, Fashion Pot Luck is an online magazine for women creatives! The FashionPotLuck Team is awesome :D ! Please check them out! x 

x Having Categories on my blog feels so nice. Everything feels organized and it actually inspired me to put out more content when I was under a dry spell. 

x Making a new series for my blog as I dive into becoming a book blogger :3 It’s a mini sample series / first impressions based on the free chapters I could get my hands on. I’m very excited for it because it goes really well for my No-Buy Year. 

x Launching my Youtube ASMR channel and adding the play button on my blog felt good :D 

x Small clips for the Ghibli vlog I want to make 

x Having a background for filming 


x If it hasn’t been already up, my reviews for the trilogy of High Tea series has definitely been a favorite for both June and July! 

x My mom bought me ‘The Day Crayons Quit’ while she was at Costco :’) 

x Star Wars: Queen’s Shadow (audiobook). The voice actress sounds just like Natalie Portman / Padhme :D 


x Pokemon Twilight Wings is a capsule episode series that I enjoyed watching. I’m on 6/7 episodes. It’s hard to pick a favorite episode but I like the one with Alistair and the Milotic episode. 

x Rick & Morty vs. Genociders :D Special Anime Short (8: 35) 


x No films yet, but I’ve been rewatching stuff to put in the background. 


x I messed up registering for my appointment twice because I increased the dosage for my meds and it made me too sleepy all the time that I missed calls from nurses. So I think I’ll just email her about current stuff.
