Time during COVID has really been weird… I feel like new, fresh months keep rolling in, even though it feels like we’re still stuck back in March. Anyone else?? But here we are, July 1 and I’m really shocked by there the last month went. It’s already time to share my 9 things of note, aka new-to-me products that I tried and loved during the past month — and this is a good one, especially if you’re looking for a really good, affordable detangler, the perfect summer tank top for less than $10, and how to use a CoffeeSock.

This post was originally slated to publish last week, but it didn’t feel right to talk about shopping. Don’t get me wrong: there is still a lot of work to be done to support equality. What I am saying is that you can support a movement, continue educating yourself, and speak your mind while also indulging in superfluous ‘fluff,’ like this post about 5 products I enjoyed last month. So let’s dig into May’s 5 things of note, including the True&Co. bralette that I am obsessed with.

Ever since we entered into quarantine, Sean and I have focused on improving our backyard since we can’t escape to the mountains. I shared a bit about the changes we’re making this year, but one of the biggest changes is updating our outdoor furniture. Ironically, I ordered a larger outdoor dining table so that we could entertain more this summer… that was before there was a global pandemic though. As I’ve shared our progress on Instagram, I’ve gotten lots of questions about my favorite sources for outdoor furniture & decor, so I put together this list for you! I hope it helps you get your outdoor space in tip-top shape just in time for summertime.
