July & August Favorites: Snoop Dogg’s Wine & “Douha (Mali Mali)” Music Video

Favorite News Articles

1. Snoop Dogg is launching a wine label. He also confirms that I am wine.

2. Dr. Fauci and Colin Kaepernick are getting an award for their dedication to social change. Well deserved.

3. Maya Rudolph might come back to SNL as VP pick Kamala Harris. Here for this.

4. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner are now parents. Surreal.

Favorite Music

1. “Find Your Way Back,” by Beyoncé. So glad for this re-release (and also the amazing BLACK IS KING visual)!

2. “STUD” by Troye Sivan. Serving all the right vibes as always.

3. “the 1” by Taylor Swift. Read a comment somewhere saying this whole folklore album hits different when you’re in a committed relationship and I couldn’t agree more.

Utama Spice Unboxing + GIVEAWAY

*SPONSORED

*I received these products complimentary from Utama Spice for testing purposes. All views are my own.

It’s been a little while since I last made a blog post, mainly because I’ve been a bit moody (as we all are during these crazy times) but also because I’ve been working on some fun new video content!

Utama Spice, a company that creates natural aromatherapy products, was kind enough to send me one of their wood-base diffusers to review on my blog.

They also sent me a bottle of  their Fresh & Tingly Mint Liquid Soap, which I’m giving away over on my Instagram,** so be sure to check that out as well after watching the unboxing!
