Monthly Favorites | June 2021 Edition

Jul 2, 2021

I typically pair this blog post with a companion YouTube video but we're switching things up. Going forward, all of my monthly favorites will be featured exclusively on the blog. This means not only will I share products here but I will also share experiences, events, truly anything I loved from the prior month!

What to expect: Mini (no BS) reviews of products/experiences, affiliate links, and discounts.

And with that, let's get started with June's favorites!

june 2021 favorites list product recommendations reviews
home.
black trim circle accent mirrorI'm very into the round mirror trend! It's a perfect accent piece, especially for a space you want to make more breathable/spacious. I got this one for the entryway. It's gorgeous, minimalist, and great quality for the price.

target accent pillows | This is a general recommendation because Target is pulling all the stops with their accent pillows! Go take a browse in their pillow section... there's a massive variety to choose from and they're actually cute. Ahem, and affordable!!

universal retractable screen door | I know this is such a specific favorite but if you're suffering with summer insects getting inside, this might be your solution. The retractable function makes for a smooth opening and I will specifically shout out how simple it was to install this! Gotta love an easy installation.

shallow serving bowls | I'm linking the ones I have but I will advocate for any favorite brand that offers shallow serving bowls... or deep plate? This shape is SUPERIOR ya'll. Pastas, stir fries, sandwiches with side salads, etc. It's the universal eating vehicle.
garden/plants.
raised garden beds | Yes, you can DIY this... but if you don't have easy access to good-quality wooden pallets, don't have time, or don't have the knack for DIY's, this store-bought option is fantastic. The size is ideal for a standard garden and they're sturdy. Oh, and the set up was 20 minutes.

soil & clay | I'm sure many online plant shops are great but I gave this one a try and I loved my experience. I was able to filter cat-friendly plants while browsing and the prices were extremely affordable! All the plants arrived safe and undamaged.
food.
trader joe's multipurpose umami seasoning blenda.k.a mushroom seasoning blend! This is essential for any kitchen but especially a vegan kitchen. It makes whatever you're seasoning taste MEATY. Seriously, give it a try and tell me if I'm wrong (I'm not).

roasted broccoli | Another obscure, oddly specific favorite lmao. The thing is that I typically prefer steamed broccoli. But lately I've been loving roasted broccoli for it's meaty chew and flavor boost. This is just my general recommendation to experiment with preparing foods in new ways. You might find a new favorite!
other things.
mini vlogsOfficially obsessed! Take 10-15 one second videos throughout the day, compile it into a single video, add some vibey music, and that's a mini vlog! They are SO fun and inspirational.

hiding likes on instagram | I don't use this tool due to analytic reasons but I think it's fantastic that this is an option. If you've ever felt negatively impacted by numbers (and who hasn't) this allows you to make your Instagram feed a bit safer of a space.


That's all the recs for this month - let me know if you're picking up anything mentioned here! And if you have specific items you'd like me to test/link, feel free to send a message and I'll work that out for you. See you in July!
