My summer vacation is flying by so fast. I’m having a super busy week in prep for 4th of July. So this week I’m going to try something different. I’m slightly addicted to people’s monthly favorites posts and videos, so let’s take a look inside what I was obsessed with this month.

Minecraft Story Mode

Every other weekend, I’ve been traveling 5 hours back and forth to go to the lake. I’m a huge fan of the Telltale games, and I finally got around to playing Minecraft Story Mode. It’s a simple family friendly point-and-click adventure game with a fun plot and doesn’t require much thought. I played it on IOS and bought it through the app store. The first episode is free, but I recommend buying it in a bundle if you’re going to play all 8 episodes. Otherwise, it can get pricey.

6ft long iPhone cord

I’m lazy, and my phone is always dead. Having an extra long phone cord is kind of a must for me, since it seems like the charger that comes in the box is always a foot too short.

Maybelline Expertwear Eyeshadow Quad in Luminous Lilacs

To tell the truth, I only bought this because it had purple eyeshadow in it. Turns out it’s a really nice quad and creates a couple different fun summer looks. All four colors are pigmented and can be worn on their own. They’re really shimmery and a bit of a mess, but it’s kind of worth it.

Escape the Night

YouTuber Joey Graceffa created and released a show for YouTube’s premium service, Youtube Red, titled Escape the Night. It’s kind of a mashup of Clue, Real Housewives, and The Amazing Race. It stars Graceffa and a dozen other YouTubers. By the time I upload this post, the first three episodes will be out. The first episode is free to watch and there’s also a free trial for the service.

Watermelon Slushy

Every summer I tell myself I’m going to eat healthy, but that usually lasts about a week. I’m not a big breakfast eater since I tend to sleep in,  So I’ve been drinking a lot of juices and smoothies.  One I tried last week was a watermelon slushy. It’s pretty simple- just 4 cups of watermelon and a packet of Splenda mixed in a blender until it has the consistency of a smoothie. The first time I tried it, the texture was unbearable. Instead, I froze the mixture overnight and blended it up for an icy version.

Crosley CR8005A-OR Cruiser Portable 3-Speed Turntable, Orange

This was a late Birthday present, and probably my favorite thing of the month. Earlier in the month, I got over a hundred 33-records from my Grandpa. They were mostly country and rock music from the 50s and 60s. I’m not a musical snob, but it works well for what I need it to do. Which is playing the Guardians of the Galaxy album at 2am.
