My June 2020 Favorites

Hello, hello! Another month in the books. Summer is finally upon us! This month was spent pouring copious amounts of energy and time into creating and launching my very first e-Course which will be available on Udemy on the 30th. It's been a true adventure but labor of exploration, lessons and love. Once it goes live, I will share it. 

In the midst of creating this course, I still had some favorites to share. I'm so excited for July, June was really good to me and I have a feeling that July is going to be even better.

PS (I know the weather is getting nice in the north western hemisphere but please continue to stay mindful and smart. The pandemic has not been cancelled yet. Let's enjoy and stay healthy!)

Mock Soda

I don't know what it is about the summer, perhaps just the sheer heat, but it's the only time I sometimes crave a cold, fizzy soda. I love the fizz factor of it. My healthier alternative, without all the sugar and other crap in it, is a mock soda that's super simple to make. All you do is take some sparkling water or seltzer water and add fruits of your choice. My favorite fruits to use for this, in any combination or alone, are strawberries, pineapples, blueberries, kiwi, peaches/nectarines, mangoes, lemon/lime slices or any other kinds of berries. 

While this is a healthier option, it's not meant to be consumed regularly and it doesn't replace the need to drink plain water. 

Fuzzy Slide Slippers

I believe in feeling luxe whether I'm lounging at home quarantining or out and about. These slippers are my new love! I got them from HERE (affiliate link) on Amazon. They shed some upon the first few times of wear (you've been warned) but they are so comfy, thanks to the memory foam in them, and look so luxe. 

Shea Moisture Bamboo Charcoal Deep Cleansing Shampoo
I stumbled on this find and am happy I did! I was on the hunt for a new shampoo for my locs that was deep cleansing and clarifying but that didn't completely strip my scalp. This shampoo serves those desires. It's a creamy yet lighter consistency, lathers easily and left my locs and scalp feeling light and clean without being completely dried out. You can find this in Target if you live in the States or HERE on Amazon to give a try.
