Monthly Must-Haves: Everything You Need for July

This July, we’re out to find joy in unlikely places. We love feeling it at the beach or our local lunch spot, but we’ve also uncovered joy while tackling tasks at home and staying productive at work. Our must-haves this month aim to open your eyes to all the amazing pit-stops on your way to destination joy!   

The next best thing to being there.

Long-distance summer plans may have been put on pause, but that doesn’t mean we can’t create an escape right from our home! Scent has an amazing ability to tap into your sensory memory, and Homesick Candles are crafted to smell just like your favorite places. With candles for every U.S. state, plus tons of countries, cities and specific memories, you can fill your house with the seaside breeze of Miami or the sweet smoke of a backyard barbecue. Send your cross-country companion a Road Trip candle and start planning your next great destination!   

Your life, in one place.

When change is the only constant, keeping track of work tasks, appointments and social plans helps us stay motivated and accountable. While phone calendars technically do the trick, there’s something especially official about writing things down by hand. This planner comes in both an undated and mid-year version beginning July 1, so there’s no excuse not to start now! The bright colors and simple styling will feel at home in your briefcase or your beach bag.

Lipstick for whatever’s next.

From brunch to beach to barbecue, summer days can be especially unpredictable. And we wouldn’t have it any other way! If you’re leaving the house unsure of your next destination, make sure to keep our highly pigmented Enduring Lip Color in your bag. The long-lasting formula keeps lips hydrated with intense color payoff that won’t bleed, flake or feather. We love Cupcake for a summery splash of color, day or night! 

A new take on a childhood favorite.

From melty popsicles to sandy toes, there’s nothing quite as joyful as memories of our childhood summers. When we found out that a throwback book series was getting a Netflix reboot, we felt like we were right back by the neighborhood pool! The Baby-Sitters Club series launches July 3rd and is based on the much-loved books by Ann M. Martin. Watch with your niece, daughter or little sister and share all of the wisdom you’ve learned since middle school. Bonus: Alicia Silverstone joins the cast for some extra 90s nostalgia!

A summer-specific cleansing routine.

LimeLife by Alcone’s Dream Clean and Quench Cleanse Facial Cleansers

When it comes to instant gratification, a great face wash is pretty high on our list. Plus, summertime brings extra oils, salty seawater and sunscreen, so washing the day away can feel like an extra treat. Both Dream Clean and Quench Cleanse were part of LimeLife’s first-ever skin care line, and they’ve been fan favorites ever since. Those with oily skin should use Quench Cleanse both morning and night, while those with normal, combination or sun-damaged skin can swap in soothing Quench Cleanse in the morning.  

Have you swapped around your summer plans and found unexpected joy? We’d love to hear what’s keeping you smiling this July!
