I spent most of July outside celebrating birthdays and soaking in the summer. Taking care of our outdoor spaces is a big focus, along with taking care of my skin and finding time off to read and enjoy some really great shows.
While work continues to be hectic, I always try to remind myself that I can’t run on all cylinders all the time. The suggestions I’m sharing below have helped me slow down a bit this month. I hope you enjoyed checking out these six things I love in July.

Chemistry Lessons by Bonnie Garmus
This book is such a delight. I like the author’s fast, witty and zingy writing style. If you like Gilmore Girls or Miraculous Mrs. MaiselThis book is for you. I devoured it.
Doré La Creme
This is my favorite face cream that I’ve been trying all year. It has a really great consistency — it sinks right in and doesn’t leave your face greasy at all. I think this cream can work well all year round, although during the dry winter months I might use it in the morning and use something a bit heavier at night.
Quit on Apple TV +
Comes with Apple TV + . subscription
This is the best show I’ve seen all year. It is beautiful and haunting. Adam Scott is amazing and Patricia Arquette is the scariest person I’ve seen on TV in a long time. I want to revisit it because there are so many little and iconic things that I think I missed. This show alone is worth subscribing to Apple TV+ in my opinion.
Sun Joe Electric pressure washer
We live in a wooded area with tons of cobwebs and everything on our outdoor patio is dirty. This pressure washer is a useful tool and it works great. I wish I would have gotten it sooner!
NassifMD Detox Pads
I found out about this product from @oliviasalmen on TikTok and decided to give it a try. These pads are very good. I was worried they would dry out or cause irritation, especially after I had dermatitis, but they weren’t at all. I love using them to treat areas of rough texture, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. Right after the first week of use, I could already see the difference.
How to change your minimum amountd on Netflix

The performance helps shed light on the long cultural history of psychedelic use. There are so many things out there that we tend to shut our minds off because we’ve been told it’s “bad” or “wrong”. This performance was really well done and opened my mind to the power of illusion.
