FOTM: July.

 1. Charlotte Cardin. Not only does this rad chick share the same beautiful name (it's the best) but she has such a mellow yet strong sound. She is also Canadian which automatically gives her 1000 gold stars in my books! My favourite song off her EP is by far, Big Boy. I could jam to this in the car, sitting around the house or working out. Such a sick song and you should all give it a listen. Check out her YouTube channel or you can find her on Spotify :)


2. Mark. My husband is my number one favourite every month but this month he has been extra awesome! Not only did this stud turn 26 (old man!) but he is switching trades in the military and I couldn't be more proud of him! He is so smart - it's almost to the point of annoying - and incredibly sweet and kind and funny and deals with me every day. He has been such a rock during this month that has been full of travel, moving and goodbyes. I love him beyond words and I am so thankful for his positive presence and his hard work to keep our family fed, warm and happy!

3. My Canon 6D. I don't know if it is the change of scenery but I am loving my camera so much lately! I am always itching to get out and photograph every. single. thing. in. sight! I just love it! It is such an awesome gadget to have during big changes in our lives. And not to mention, it takes fantastic photos! I really can't say much more because I just LOVE it! :)

4. Pokemon GO. Alright. I am on the Pokemon GO train just as much as everyone else. It is the closest thing to my dream of catching actual Pokemon! It is insanely addictive and I definitely feel silly stopping in mid walk to catch an Eevee (one of my faves!) but it is so incredibly satisfying catching these not-even-real creatures! Ah! It is also oddly enjoyable walking around and pointing out other people playing Pokemon GO. I just love it!

5. PIIT 28. I have found during this time of moving that my workout/ physical game has been off. Living in hotels for the past week and a half made me lazy and the hotels we stayed at didn't offer much for workout rooms. I finally decided that I am tired of being tired and such a lazy butt that I need to get back to a routine. I find one of the best ways to start getting into a fit state of mind is by doing a monthly challenge. You can find ones for free or pay. This time, I took the plunge and paid for a workout that is already kicking my ass (excuse the language but I mean it)! This PIIT 28 workout is by Blogilates or Cassey Ho who is huge on YouTube. I used to do her monthly workout routines which are free but then I started to do more yoga (Yoga with Adriene also has a monthly yoga challenge) and weightlifting with Mark. But, I just started this program on the 2nd (so not technically a "July" favourite) and I am so in love with it! Well, I hate it and curse at her when I am doing the workouts because they are not easy, but I am so grateful to be working out "with" her and for her to have made this program for the world! I end each workout feeling so awesome and confident. If you have not done any of her videos, you should check them out! She is just the best!


Well folks, that is all for my July favourites! I feel like I have a ton more but I want to keep these minimal as to not bore you. :)

Let me know what your favourites for the month of July were!

I hope that you are all having a rad first week of August :)


  1. That workout sounds great- will have to investigate because I used to love Blogilates a while ago!

    1. Yeah, it is awesome! I feel so much more energetic and I just started 4 days ago. Blogilates (or Cassy) is pretty fantastic!
