Below are the rest of my non-beauty related May favorites. YAY for May.

Grilled bread. This should come as no surprise but… grilled bread. I can’t stop. Next week I’m going to share an awesome not-so-recipe grilled bread recipe with you. Just wait.

I read a ton this past month but my favorite book by far was Sarah Pekkanen’s Catching Air. I’ve read all of her other books and this one did not disappoint. Super fun read – I just wish it would have continued! I hate when books end. I legit get depressed.

These black and white striped flats from halogen. I picked them up at nordstrom a few weeks ago after my cousin had a similar pair the past few months. I love them, but as you know I’m so not a flats girl. My first pair of flats EVER (like ever ever, besides when I was like 10) were my tieks in the fall that I adore. I’m trying to expand my horizons though. Love these. I’ve worn them with leggings and skirts so far.

As far as music goes? I still can’t get enough of the Michael Jackson/Justin Timberlake mashup Love Never Felt So Good. And I’m also loving Ingrid Michaelson’s Girls Chase Boys. AND I’m still in full blown country mode (OMG Miranda Lambert’s new album comes out tomorrow!) and blasting Brad Paisley’s Riverbank and Luke Bryan Play it Again. Could I BE more predictable?

Ummmm the Starbucks iced passion tea. I know. WAH! It’s just so good. A few of you told me to try it with a pump of raspberry and I gotta say that I wasn’t that impressed. But I also don’t omglove raspberry. I go for it unsweetened or half sweet depending on my mood. I also tried the lemonade, but for sure prefer the tea.

Speaking of flats, I also got these pink ones from Target. They are super stretchy and comfortable and so far I love them. Eddie hates them. He doesn’t love flats but he really doesn’t love these. Oh well! I don’t care.

These fun little beachy earrings. I love anthro’s cheaper post earrings and also have two other pairs I’m currently loving but can’t find online to link. Little studs. They are what I wear for everyday life along with my Kate Spade square studs that I own in practically every color.

My favorite candle during the summer months is this caribbean escape. It reminds me of the beach because a few years ago my aunt was burning it during our entire trip, and it’s just so good. I wish I didn’t love bath and body words candles as much as I do. I feel like that episode of sex and the city where samantha says ‘women with candles are starting to replace women with cats.” Yeah. No.

I’ve mentioned these before but I just adore the american eagle jeggings. I feel ridiculous going in there to buy jeans because it’s full of middle schoolers, but their jeggings in the short length are perfect for my stumpy legs.

With it being really hot out recently I’m pounding coconut water more than usual, especially after walking/running outside. You know the drill by now. My favorite (and only brand I like!) is Harmless Harvest. Mmmm.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but I’m dying over the entire Oh Joy line at Target. WHAAAAT. It’s so colorful and gorgeous. I bought some reusable straws and some paper products, but I need an entire outdoor garden so I can have a party and buy all the things.

Also loving this tie die slip dress. SO perfect for summer and I’ve already worn it three times. Ridiculously comfortable.
