No.149: Five June Favorites (A Link-Up and A Giveaway!)

This post contains affiliate links.

Welcome to the Five Favorites linkup!  Congratulations to Jen, with May's winning post: Stuff I Love {five favorites}.  Be sure to check below for this month's prize pack!  

1 // COLD BREW COFFEE
My favorite afternoon treat lately has been a big glass of iced coffee.  Mark and I have tried a few brands, but I think Gevalia's vanilla cold brew concentrate is my favorite. I mix it with cashew milk.  So good!

2 // MID-RISE 6" SHORTS
For most of my life, I've been self-conscious about my legs.  But after sweating many a summer in jeans and maxi dresses, I've decided enough is enough!  I'm embracing this 30-something body, for better or worse!  It turns out, though, that shorts buying is as tricky for me as jeans.  I have longer legs, so I've been searching for something in between booty shorts and bermudas.  On a whim, I bought a pair of Old Navy shorts from ThredUp and they're the perfect length for me. 

3 // ARTISAN SOURDOUGH MADE SIMPLE
I love this cookbook!  If you've ever been curious to try making sourdough bread, this is the book for you.  The directions are clear and she walks you through the process step by step.  So far, we've made the everyday loaf, a focaccia pizza and sourdough waffles.  Everything has been delicious!  I want to make every single recipe.

4 // THE EVERYDOLLAR BUDGETING WEBSITE AND APP
Mark and I are ramping up our debt reduction plans again and we just started using Dave Ramsey's (free!) EveryDollar website and app.  I still like working out our budget on paper, but the app really helps Mark and I stay on the same page.  It's especially nice to see how much we have in sinking funds, all in a quick glance. 

5 // MY NEW PULLOVER
My latest thrift store find: a like new L.L.Bean rugby pullover for only $4.50!  I got to wear it a few days before the heat became unbearable.  It's so comfortable.

A Peek into June's Prize Pack
The giveaway items I've chosen are a mix of some of my favorite things: etsy finds, vintage pieces and little bits picked up from various stores.  All have been purchased by me and nothing has been sponsored.  This incentive is to thank you for visiting here and linking up your posts.  It's my small way of showing you that your words are being heard!  I read every single entry and try to comment on or share a few (I wish I could do this for every one - not enough hours in the day!)  Here's how it works: every time you link up a blog or Instagram post, you get an entry.  The official closing date will be Sunday, July 1st and I'll randomly pick a winner on July 2.

June's prizes include:
1 // Tall strawberry glass

2 // Three reusable plastic straws

3 // Sun Porch goat milk soap from Clean Line Soap Company

4 // My Not So Perfect Life paperback

5 // Strawberry napkins

I can't wait to hear about what you're loving this month!  Here's what to do:
1. Write a blog post sharing about five of your favorite things.  You could also share a photo on Instagram too! (hashtag is #bwffivefavorites)  It can have a theme (ie: five of your favorite slow cooker recipes) or just a mishmash like I usually do.
2. Please link back to this post so your readers know where to find the Five Favorites hub (posts not mentioning "Five Favorites" or not linking back to this post will be subject to removal).
3. Not mandatory, but feel free to visit some of the other posts in the link-up!  Sharing and/or leaving a comment is even better.
4. Make sure to add a link to your specific post or Instagram picture, not just your blog address.
Thanks for linking up!
