We are coming up to 2017 being almost half way over! Time has flown by and my first month of summer is already over. This month has been filled with lots of planning for next month’s vacation and hot summer days. I usually find being off from college to be too much free time, but I’ve managed to fill it with lots of work, both blogging and other. Like always, here is a roundup of May, with everything from posts to music and bodysuits!
A lot of lifestyle and blogging tips posts went up this month!

As always, I’ve been posting on Instagram this month, although I did give myself a few needed days off. Here is a look at my 7 top favorite posts, and don’t forget to follow along here to see my other posts!
After discovering the brand NudeStix, they have quickly become a love of mine this month. I don’t want to give too much away as to why I love the products because that’s what the review does, but I would definitely recommend giving this brand a try! Another love of mine this month has been Zara. I only started shopping at Zara last summer because they don’t have a store where I live, and while on vacation I finally managed to go shopping at one. I am in love with their spring/summer clothing this season, and have done way too many online orders these past few months. The quality of their items is great, and I love that they have a range of prices.
I don’t talk about music ever on my blog and that’s because over the years I’ve found less and less songs and artists that I personally love. I’ve been a fan of Ruth B for a year now, and she just this month she realized an album and I am in love with it. I always love songs that have more piano in them than any other instrument, and all the songs off the album are amazing. My top favorite songs from the album are Mixed Signals, Superficial Love, and In My Dreams.
This month has been filled with lots of work in preparation for my trip next month. I’ll be gone for 2 and a half weeks and I wanted to get all of my blog posts for the month of June done before I leave. So far so good, so there will be a post as usual twice a week (Tuesday and Saturday) when I’m away! It was a bit of a challenge working on May’s and June’s posts at the same time since I’ve never had to do that before, but luckily I was able do it. Since May is almost over that means a whole month of my summer is already gone. Although I haven’t completed much of my summer goals, I’m excited for what the rest of the summer has in store!
When I first started seeing bodysuits in stores and online I was not that big of a fan. It took me awhile to try one on and last summer I purchased my first one from Zara. I’m now in love with them and am always on the hunt for new ones. This off-the-shoulder crossed one from Zara is one of my more recent purchases. I love how simple it is yet perfect for wearing with either jeans or a skirt. For every day I like to pair the bodysuit with my favorite pair of high waisted jeans from ASOS. These are the Farleigh mom jeans from ASOS and they fit amazingly! If you’re looking for a pair of high waisted jeans, I would definitely recommend trying these. And my new favorite shoes are these sandals from Madden Girl. I love how they’re easy to slip on and head out the door.
And that is May’s monthly round-up! Have a catch up of the last month in posts and be on the lookout for more to come in June!
