Happy August, y’all! I can’t believe it’s the new year for us retail peeps! Well, it’s only been a little over half a year since my last monthly favorites post. Whoops! If you’re new to my website, welcome! Monthly favorites is a post I do at the beginning of each month on my findings on entrepreneurship, faith, health/wellness, lifestyle, fashion and beauty. I also give you updates within these posts as well. Consider it an edit if you will!
I finally finished Jesus CEO by Laurie Beth Jones earlier this summer! Definitely a wonderful read on how to be a great leader. The book uses Jesus as the focus on how a great leader should behave and treat others. Whatever your beliefs are, I still highly recommend this book. I will be constantly studying Jesus CEO to stay on top of my leadership game!
I need to find Royalty Income: The Business of Getting Paid More than Once by Dr. Steve Hryszczuk since I lost it during my move. I’m hoping to finish it in a few days once I find it. I know, shame on me! Review to come on this book soon!
Think and Grow Rich is another book I’ve been studying for the last few months. I listen to each CD three to five times while I’m driving. I’m on the last and final CD as of last week. Let me tell you, I’ll be studying the teachings from it for the rest of my life too! SO many golden nuggets!
I’m just two days away from finishing the Bible! For the latter half of my studies, I’ve been loving the books of Galatians, Ephesians, Colossians, 1 Timothy and Hebrews so much. God’s words have spoken to me time and time again throughout those books. For those who are new to my blog, I use the YouVersion Bible app!
Health & Wellness:
In addition to No Weights No Worries and Fitness Blender, I added bootcamp to my workouts for about a month now and LOVE it! If you’re in the Dallas area, you should check them out! Isaiah and Jared (who are co-owners of Steadfast) are godly men and are doing great things in the fitness world!
I’m also doing another detox this week. I’ve been eating 70/30 so it’s time to flush all these bad toxins out of my body before summer comes to a close. Feel free to shoot me a message if you want to know more about the detox! 🙂
Hooray! I finally ordered my Nike Free shoes in black and in white! They have been in constant rotation all summer. I think I may need another pair for my trips coming up this month. Eep!
Yep, I’m still terrible at getting the things I need ordered. I.e. my Daily Greatness Journal! ::covers eyes in shame::
I’m still searching the interwebs for interior decor inspiration, but am happy to say that my dining table came in a few weeks ago! I’ll be finishing up my eating area with two more chairs this week! I’ve also decided on my living room colors, found my couch, coffee table and living room rug! A final decision on a media storage unit still needs to be done, but progress is progress!
Style & Beauty:
I took advantage of the #NSale and got these Kendra Scott earrings, a BlankNYC faux leather jacket (which is already sold out-sorry!) and these black lace up flats. I’m going to finish up the sale with these ankle booties in either navy or taupe. I’m also thinking of this suede jacket, but we’ll see!
That’s all for my monthly favorites!
I did end up taking a hiatus from the blog and started back on it again at the beginning of July. My break was much-needed. A lot happened during that time so it was good for me to be away from the blog on purpose anyway. It felt so good to just be MIA, but I missed writing too much to stay away too long. I also took a Facebook break for a week and that was a great technology.
As you’re reading this, I’m preparing to take my bestie up to New Jersey for her new job so I’ll try to write some posts and schedule them for the time I’ll be gone, but if I don’t get to them, just know I’ll still be posting on Instagram so you can follow my roadtrip adventures over there!
With faith and happiness,
P.S. Who else is excited that we’re that much closer to fall? I’m not the only one, right?
