Monthly Favorites for July 2022- Taking stock and Finding Joy In The Mundane

It’s been over a week into August and I would not even give the excuse of being too busy to upload this post because I ignored the reminders.

Happy new month, lovelies!

I started sharing monthly favorites (apart from skincare) last month on the blog and received such amazing feedback. My goal is to spur you to take note of the seemingly mundane things around you that you actually enjoy.

I also share weekly favorites and inspirational newsletters so join us by signing up below;

In the spirit of sharing more, here are July’s favorites:


July is my birth month! I clocked the “scary” 25 and while it was my third birthday at home on another strike action, I would say it was one of my best. I shared all the details from what happened on the day to the areas I’ve grown in.

Writing More

I started a writing internship at the beginning of July. Ladies (and gentlemen), when I tell you I have never written as much in such little time as I did last month, I’m not kidding. As I write this, it is the last week.

I loved that I have learned more about the tone of my writing, how to get past imposter syndrome, writing with others, and meeting new people who love to write! There was a week I almost quit, but the encouragement from some friends reminded me of why I started in the first place. It’s definitely one highlight from July!

Join me in taking stock of your highlights as I share the monthly favorites for July 2022. It was a generally sweet month and I share why here! Click To Tweet


You know that skincare had to come in, haha!

Me enjoying how my skin looked last month

One thing I enjoyed about my skin last month was learning more about hydration and seeing the effect. If you’re stuck on how to improve your skin barrier, then one way is by introducing hydrating products.

Let me know if you would like a blog post on that in the comments.

PS– The skin barrier is what makes up the outermost layer of the skin. It acts as a protective shield from irritation and environmental stressors that make us prone to dehydration, inflammation, etc. Basically, a good skin barrier equals healthy-looking skin.


Would you believe me if I told you I only watched movies last month one or two times? It’s crazy because movies are my treasured passe-temps. I didn’t know I could focus so much on writing that I would forget to see a movie. Considering I have to pick, it would be the Man from Toronto. It was a really good watch and just hilarious.

My favorite podcast episode last month was Growing in Gratitude by Let’s Talk TGC. These women talk about real issues and tough questions as Christian women. I loved that this episode explored why we struggle with gratitude and how to walk in it consciously.

Looking back, July was not bad at all. I don’t want to use only the good moments as a yardstick, but I believe it’s one way to go through the moments and just take stock of the good things around.

Please share your favorite thing from the last month with me in the comments.

    Hey! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

    iruoma 1 year ago Reply

    Uh-oh that makes me sad because I try to make sure it’s mobile friendly. I don’t have any recommendations sadly, but let me know how it goes.

  • I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

    iruoma 1 year ago Reply

    Thank you! I didn’t hire a developer, but I bought my theme which made it easy to customize.

  • Please let me know if you’re looking for a article author for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I think I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really like to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Many thanks!

    A formidable share, I simply gave this to a colleague who was doing a bit of analysis on this. And he in truth purchased me breakfast because I discovered it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the treat! However yeah thanks for spending the time to debate this, I feel strongly about it and love studying extra on this topic. If doable, as you turn into experience, would you thoughts updating your weblog with more details? It’s extremely helpful for me. Massive thumb up for this weblog put up!

    Right here is the right blog for everyone who hopes to understand this
    topic. You understand so much it’s almost tough
    to argue with you (not that I really will need to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic that has been written about for many years.
    Great stuff, just wonderful!
