Ugh... I really really need to get out in my yard and do some landscaping. I want to, need to do it, but it's just so freaking hot! On top of that, the mosquitos and wasps are god awful and I'm terrified of stepping on a snake. In other words, I am not an outdoor person. I do like my yard to look nice though and the trees that line my driveway are in desperate need of trimming. Perhaps I can drag my butt outside once this ridiculous heatwave breaks. Until then, I occupy myself with boxes like My Texas Market.

My TBR pile has grown beyond ridiculous at this point. I'm reasonably sure I have well over 200 books on my shelves that I have yet to dive into. I tell myself, "no more books. You don't need more books, Okay, maybe just 1 new book. 5 books is enough. F it. Buy the whole store!" That is how it is for me, but I just can't stop myself. As proof of that inability to kick the habit, I've subscribed to another book box - LitJoy Crate!

I go though phases when it comes to food. Lately, the only thing I want to eat is fried eggs and toast. My son hates them and groans whenever I make some for myself, but I can't help it. It's just so good! Perhaps the items in my Degustabox will yield a new food obsession for me and mix up my cravings.

Ok, so at this point, the heat wave we seem to be stuck in is really starting to irritate me. Seriously, it just needs to stop. I don't want to cook or do laundry during the day because then the house becomes an oven, my house a/c is working overtime just to keep it at 78, and I almost don't want to walk to my mailbox. That's how hot it is. I normally stalk my mailman but with the humid, miserable heat, I just can't bring myself to do it. Thank god my Popsugar Must Have ini was to large for the mailbox so he had to bring it to the door!

So this morning, my son realized that there's only about a month left of summer break. Yeah.... That went over soooo well. While a tiny part of me is ready for him to start back, the bigger part is wondering how the crap my kid is already in 4th grade. Seriously people, where has time gone? It moves to fast sometimes! Speaking of time flying, a new month of Birchbox has arrived and I'm ready to open up this bad boy!

You know why I fall behind on my reviews during the summer? Netflix. That nifty little app sucks me in for days on end. Really, who can watch just one episode? It's impossible for me not to binge entire seasons at a time. I just finished with my newest obsession, From Dusk Till Dawn. If you haven't watched it, I highly recommend it! Anyways, now that I'm finished with that little gem, it's back to the reviews. Say hello to Scarftique!

I keep bouncing from obsession to obsession lately. This month, it seems to be accessories. I have enough jewelry to wear a new necklace every day of the year, yet I just can't seem to stop myself from accumulating more. It's all just so pretty! Now I can add a few more pieces to my jewelry collection thanks to the July Flitwicks Box.

Vacation is calling my name. This brutal heat is beginning to drive me crazy. I love my isolation where I live most of the time, but having to stay indoors to stay cool is forcing that isolation on me and taking away my say in the matter. Yup, a vacation sounds lovely right about now, but until then I shall occupy myself with the July Target Beauty Box.

I love fashion in the summer, don't you? While I am a terribly pale person, I love the option of running out in light, airy clothes, flip-flops, and my long hair tied back. Honestly though, even if I hated summer style, its 100 degrees outside so I'd have to do it anyways! I do enjoy it though and subscrptions like Threads Monthly make building my wardrobe with season appropriate items so much easier!

I have had a mantra lately. What is said mantra, you ask? I shall not buy new books today. Obviously, as you may have noticed by the title of this review, that isn't going so well. I have no more room for books, but I still buy them. I have no self control with literature and subscriptions like Bookcase.Club make me happy (even if I have no more shelf space to put them on).
