May 2016

I apologize for the tardiness of this May favorites post, but better late than never. This month has been a wild one for me, but the semester is over and it’s officially summer! With that being said, here are a handful things that I have been enjoying throughout the month of May.

Equate Moisture Care Cocoa Divine Lotion – $4

Over spring break, my boyfriend and I made our way down to Florida. I forgot body lotion, so we bought this one at the store to use for the week. I fell in love with it. Not only is it extremely moisturizing, but the smell is wonderful. Plus, it’s inexpensive.

Aquaphor Lip Repair + Protect – $4

The winter months make my lips extremely dry. However, during the summer, I find myself licking my lips and driving with the windows down, causing chapped lips as well. This is my favorite lip balm. It is extra strength to fight back against the worst chapped lips. Plus, it has SPF in it to help protect your lips from that harsh summer sun.


When searching for some more professional, business clothes, I received a recommendation from a friend for LOFT and I completely fell in love. Halfway through my first visit, I knew it was going to be my new favorite store. The prices are reasonable and the quality of the clothing is outstanding. I’m so thankful to have found such a great store for high quality clothing.

Virgin Strawberry Mojitos

I posted a recipe for strawberry mojitos a few weeks ago and it has been a definite favorite for the month of May. Strawberry mojitos are nice and refreshing, perfect for the summer months. The recipe I posted calls for white rum, but I leave it out when making a drink for myself. It’s a nice way to mix things up instead of drinking plain water.

Biscoff Cookies

Most people know about these cookies from airplanes. They are the same cookies handed out on airplanes, but you can buy them in bulk. I pick them up at Walmart. They are my current favorite treat. They are sweet without being sickly rich.


As some of you know, my parents adopted a rescue dog a few weeks ago. Her name is Lila and she is a sweetheart. Lila is still adjusting to her new life and the new people around her, but I’m thoroughly enjoying getting to know her.

Big Kids by Megan & Liz

I was fortunate enough to meet Megan and Liz a few years back. They were two of the sweetest people and I had a great time listening to them play and chatting with them. This song is such a cute, upbeat track for summer. I find myself blasting it with the windows down on my way home from work every day. Shout out to all of the other big kids out there just trying to find their way.

What were some of your favorite things throughout the month of May?
