June & July 2019 Round Up

Joia Spirits New Orleans Blogger Trip

Welp guys I was doing good for a couple months then I completely slacked off and forgot to write my June 2019 Round Up so we’re just going to treat this post as a recap for both months and call it a day!

Now before I jump into all the good stuff let’s talk personal news for a second…I’m desperately trying this whole getting 8 hours of sleep a night thing. According to my FitBit I only get around 6 hours a night and it’s DEFINITELY taking a toll on me. I struggle hardcore walking up in the morning, I hit a 3pm slump like no other and my eyes have been bothering me a lot (despite wearing my blue light glasses). So in August I’m going to work better on my time management skills so I get more things done during the day, I’m going to actually stick to the 2 hour limit I have set for Instagram (I mean I despise the app so why and I spending so much time scrolling) and I’m going to give it my best to sleep a little more!

June & July 2019 Travel

I’m so lucky I got to take not 1, but 2 trips during June & July! The first one to Raleigh, NC to visit one of my best friends! Literally the easiest flight ever (barely an hour from NYC) and every time I take it I curse myself for not going to visit her more often! If only there was a flight from Westchester Airport…who can I talk to to make that happen!

My second trip was a first time trip to New Orleans with a bunch of my best blogger friends! Our trip was QUITE a struggle being that we were there during “Hurricane Barry” but we made the most of it and I’ll be sharing all the details on where we stayed tomorrow & my New Orleans guide after that! If you have any questions you want me to include in my guide shoot me an email or DM and I’ll make sure to include them!

Most Popular Items of June & July

It’s actually not surprising to me at all that my most popular item (or items I should say) are self tanners! After quite a few tanning mishaps I finally found the holy grail of self tanners and I’ll never look back! I apply Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse in Dark to my entire body using a mitt and then every other day or so I add a few drops of Tan-Luxe The Face Illuminating Self-Tan Drops to my moisturizer! I’ve also become obsessed with St. Tropez Tan Remover Prep and Maintain Mousse to remove leftover tan on my body before applying a new layer.
