7 Things I Loved in June | Affordable Art + What I Wore & Watched

Hope everybody had a great holiday weekend! While it certainly felt different than in years past, it was still nice to soak up a hot, summer day with minimal plans other than relaxing and cooking out. Oh, and watching Hamilton on Disney+ – duh! 😉

I thought with no monthly favorites post for last month that I would be chomping at the bit to share all sorts of things … wrong! Ha! Life is vastly different now, and with that priorities shift and habits change. Most of that is for the good! So, I’m just going to roll with it and see how things play out.

For now, here’s the 7 things I loved in June! I’ve got you covered on affordable home decor, a rediscovered closet favorite, and of course a couple streaming favorites.

7 things i loved in june 2020

Affordable art for the home

Art has never really been my thing. But, with all the changes and redesigns throughout our home that we’re working on I’ve been craving some new decor. Katie is one of my favorite home bloggers, and she recently launched an affordable art website! It never occurred to me to go the route of digital art that I can download, print and frame on my own. Now I’m hooked!

Minimal everyday makeup

Long gone are my days wearing a full face of makeup! With the exception of last weekend on the day my parents arrived, I haven’t done “full glam” in nearly three months. Which is both crazy but oddly freeing! That said, concealer is something I rarely go without. I’m loving e.l.f. for my under eyes and Milani for blemishes. Both blend seamlessly into the skin, so it still looks like I have no makeup on!

Rediscovered closet staples

I pulled my boyfriend-fit denim jacket out of hiding and have been living in it ever since. With a baseball hat on, my mom calls it my Kelly McGillis circa Top Gun look. Ha!

With the hot weather we’ve been having in Wisconsin, these are my go-to tanks.. They’re the best, especially when paired with pull-on/drawstring shorts or pants.

What we watched

On Netflix, I flew through the latest season of Queer Eye. It was one of their best seasons yet! So many inspiring individuals, and obviously the Fab 5 is one of the best reminders that there is still good in this world.

If you love Frozen then you’ll LOVE the Making of Frozen 2 docuseries on Disney+. We watched all six episodes in two days! It’s fascinating to get a behind-the-scenes look at the animation process, as well as all the other moving parts a movie like that requires.

What were some of your loves from last month?
