With yesterday being the first day of Summer, all I can think about is escaping somewhere to relax and vacay. Whether it’s to the beach (which is actually home for me) to cool off from the heat or somewhere else around the world, I go a little crazy if I’m stuck in one place for too long. I need a weekend getaway soon!
Feature 1: Single Release – Demi Lovato “Sober”
I’m sure many people have heard this song by now with how well it’s being received. But, it truly is an amazing song and talks about a topic most people have a hard time putting into words. I love Demi Lovato’s voice because it’s so powerful, and she sounds just as good live as she does on an album. “Sober” is basically an apology song to those she loves as she sings “Momma, I’m so sorry, I’m not sober anymore” and “I’m sorry for the fans I lost, who watched me fall again.” This song is full with powerful lyrics, and it really shows the power of music because it’s a hard subject to talk about.
Feature 2: Travel Essential – CALPAK Packing Cube Set
I hate to admit it, but I’m one of those people who wait until the last-minute to pack. Which means I end up just haphazardly throwing my entire closet into a suitcase and then have to sit on it to make it close. Basically, I’m not an organized packer. Since I’m traveling a little more frequently lately, this cube set would be the perfect thing to help me be a *little* more organized. And they come in a really cute print (black or white marble), which automatically makes me more inclined to use it.
Feature 3: Coffee Table Book – “The 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris” by Marie Farman
Paris has always been one of those cities that fascinates me and near the top of my travel list. While I haven’t been there yet, I imagine it to be a magical city filled with cute bakeries and cafes and beautiful scenery. Basically, my dream come true. “The 500 Hidden Secrets of Paris” is somewhat of a travel guide for those who prefer the non-touristy areas. It tells the city’s “best hidden gems” for food, drinks, shopping, culture, and scenic views. And plus, the book is so pretty it’d look great on my coffee table!
Becca Tilley is well-known for being a contestant on “The Bachelor” season 19 and 20. While she never won, she is probably one of the top fan favorites to be on the show. She’s super relatable, loves McDonald’s, and extremely funny. Ever since the show, she’s gained many followers on Instagram probably because her stories are always good and will make you laugh. She isn’t afraid to embarrass herself at all (something I wish I was better at!). Her blog/website is updated pretty frequently with beauty and lifestyle articles and she has her own podcast.
