July 2018 Monthly Favorites

For me, the end of July signals a significant change. August means school will be back in session, and that Fall is right around the corner. I love Fall – it’s my favorite season. But that change always has me feeling a bit regretful for what I might not have accomplished during the warmer months. This summer has been incredibly HOT. So I’ve spent a lot more time inside than out, and I’ve tried to make the most of that, but there will always be moments of reflection as Summer puts on its final show and I wonder what I could have done differently, or accomplished…you know, had it not been oppressively hot out…

I feel like I have a LOT of favorites this month. Some months there’s only a couple of things, while others I find myself with a lengthy list and that’s what happened this month. There’s a bit of everything so lets just jump into it.

My new desk lamp – I picked up this new desk lamp from TaoTronics and it is incredible!!! I struggle from frequent headaches and migraines and it can be difficult to find a balance between needing light to work, and finding the lighting to abrasive and painful (you should see how dim the brightness is on my phone!). This lamp has about ninety bazillion different settings that allow you to adjust it to whatever suits you, or what you might need for a particular project. It goes beyond brightness levels (of which there are TWELVE), and also has didn’t temperatures of lighting as well. Some are the super bright blue toned LED that can be expected of modern lighting, and others are more yellow toned, which is what my eyeballs seem to prefer. I also love the design because that too is adjustable and I have it set up to be right above my computer. Further, the light is non-flickering!! For my head that means so much because flickering and/or flashing light is a huge trigger for me! Oh and there’s a USB port on the light so you can charge a device off it as well. For $30, I really don’t think you can go wrong!

My Funko Pop Wishlist


The Funko Pop fandom has exploded recently and you can add both Tina and me to the ranks. Initially, I thought they were very cool, but I wasn’t sure about collecting them. Now that I’ve seen more of what is out there, I can definitely say that’s changed! There are so many cool things about Funko Pops and the sheer amount of Funko Pops that exist astounds me and overwhelms me (Seriously, you could do a real number on your bank account snatching these bad boys up). And like I said, there are so many that I keep learning about Funko Pops existing for different fandoms that my wish list seems to never stop growing! Hunting for Funko Pops whether in stores or online can often feel like the coolest and nerdiest treasure hunting experience ever (don’t even get me started on snagging those exclusive Funko Pops or the ones that have been vaulted Disney-style)! I currently have a few, but I definitely want to add on and literally display my nerdiness on a shelf. Here are some of the Funko Pops we have on our wishlist that may make you want to run and grab them yourself!
