June Lovin

I’ve decided to try and make a once-a-month post about things I’m loving that month. Here are the books, articles, website, products, food, and people I’m loving this month!

What I'm Loving in June


– I’m working my way through the Outlander series, which I’m rereading because it’s coming out as a show in August. I’m currently on the fifth book and I can’t say enough good things about the series.

– Teachers: I’m currently reading Reading Reasons: Motivational Mini-Lessons for Middle and High School by Kelly Gallagher, and you definitely need to check it out!


– They released a teaser trailer of the next Doctor Who series! It comes back on August 23 and I’m so ridiculously excited!


I’ve been testing out a fair amount of mascaras (from Influenster, Ipsy, samples from Sephora) from Covergirl, Smashbox, Maybelline, Mary Kay, and Bombshell.

So I tried Maybelline’s “The Rocket Volume Express,” Covergirl’s “Bombshell Curvaceous by lashblast,” Mary Kay’s “Lash Love,” Smashbox’s “Full Exposure Mascara,” and Be a Bombshell Cosmetic’s “Last Out” (not pictured) mascaras. Without a doubt, the absolute best one was Maybelline’s! I have had people ask me if my lashes are real when I’m wearing it. If you are looking for volume and length, absolutely go with that one. 


– I’ve been super in love with quinoa “pizza” bites. Healthy, delicious, and gluten-free.

– Finally, I have to acknowledge my incredible sponsors. They have sponsored me over the past month or so, and I haven’t been the best and pointing out their awesomeness (I’m kinda dealing with a quarter-life crisis right now and have been kind of out of it). So, without further ado, go check out these awesome people.

A Weekend Crossing

I’m just a California girl trying to figure out to do with my post-grad life. I have a boyfriend of six years who is pretty swell, two guinea pig children, an amazing family, and an adventurous spirit. I like eating out, reading books, and writing letters, and I’m a HUGE animal lover. My favorite movie hands down is Pride & Prejudice (the one with Keira Knightley teehee).

Angel – Sew Crafty Angel

My blog is a variety that is my life.  I post about life, marriage, crafts, DIY projects, trash to treasure. 

I’m a huge Shabby Chic Fan.  I love fun, laughter, inspiration, creating and sharing life’s adventures along my journey.  I am a Christian who loves life and tries to find light in any situation.

Natalie – All Things Natalie Christa
All Things Natalie Christa

I started All Things Natalie Christa (ATNC) back in June of 2013 because I started reading other blogs and I saw how much they loved it. All these ideas began popping into my head of what I could write about and suddenly I realized how much I wanted to start a blog of my own. So, ATNC was born, and now a year later it has become not only my hobby, but also a full time job. People don’t realize all the work that goes into having a blog. A day doesn’t go by where I’m not writing new posts, responding to emails, replying to comments, or answering questions. It has been one heck of a roller coaster, with times where I’ve been in love with it and times where I’ve almost deleted the blog completely. But overall its been such a rewarding experience, that I wouldn’t trade for anything in the world. I’ve made friends who are literally on the other side of the world from me. I’ve learned about marketing and graphic design. Before I had a blog, I had no idea what I wanted to do as a career, or even what I wanted to study in college. After going through this whole experience, I’ve now decided that I want to major in marketing and get a minor in graphic design. I would of never decided those things or been exposed to either of those fields if I hadn’t started ATNC. This blog has opened so many new doors for me and I can’t wait to see where this blogging roller coaster takes me next.

If you want to be like these people, my sponsorship options are from $5-7 (other than the small free one). I swear, I’m usually better at sponsoring than I was in June. I’m also usually better at life than I was in June, soo …
