10 Things We Loved in June

share this:

June was a pretty great month in our books. We’ve had beautiful weather, the World Cup, and, well, a whole lot of other great stuff going on. Since there was so much to love, we decided to compile a little listicle for you. Here are the top 10 things that made us happy this month:

1. Handsome fútbol players.

Cristiano RonaldoHellllloooooo World Cup! Admittedly, most of us are fair-weather soccer fans at best, but we’re all full-time fans of Cristiano Ronaldo’s chiseled jaw. Our whole office has been watching as many of the games as possible. Have you been keeping up?

2. Lupita Nyongo’s first Lancôme ad.


She’s just so sweet and talented and stunning. We can’t help but get excited every time we see her! And that flawless complexion is making us want to hit the Lancôme counters ourselves.

3. All of the adorable and inspiring entries we’ve received in our Sketch 4 School contest.

We asked our community to send in their kids’ drawings of what they want to be when they grow up, and we’ve been absolutely overwhelmed with the response! We’ve been sharing as many as possible on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, so make sure you check them out.

4. Season 2 of Orange is the New Black

orange-new-black-season-2-casting-rumorsThe great thing about a Netflix shows? You get the whole season at once, so binge-watching is basically required. We don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who haven’t finished the season yet, so we’ll just say this: BEST ENDING EVER.

5. Messes. Of. Dresses.

The sun finally came out (even in San Francisco!) and gave us all the chance to break out our favorite maxis, shifts and sundresses. Plus, we listed thousands of new styles, so there’s plenty of new fashion-candy for you!

6. ManRepeller’s hilarious critique of our favorite sappy romance movie, The Notebook.

Seriously though, a lake full of that many swans would be way gross.

7. The Adventures of this adorable beagle, Sid.

8. Beauty oils.

Refinery29 Beauty OilsIt took us a good long while to work up the courage to test this beauty trend, but boy are we glad we finally did! Talk about glowing skin. Refinery29 rounded up a few of the bests here, and we give ‘em all two thumbs up.

9. Our favorite trend: All White Everything

All White EverythingMaybe we’ve been spending too much time on Pinterest lately, but we’re pretty sure All White is summer’s biggest trend. Yes, we realize that wearing white from head-to-toe can be risky, especially if you love eating messy tacos (which we do). But still, this look is too chic to pass up. Give it a try, we guarantee you’ll feel glamorous.
