Okay so seriously where is this year going? June was month full of creating content and really getting back on my grind. I know I say that a lot but for real, I got my shit together this month. This past month I launched my app series, The Candids, finally got back in the hang of creating content (and created more), and shot some new content for ToniBaldwin.com (coming soon to the Eats section). June is always a good month for me during the year though. It's the first month of Summer and I love hot weather. So let's get into my June musings.
Ever since Tobi sent me this faux leather skirt, I've been obsessed with it for real. It's become a staple in my night out wardrobe and I always love pairing it with an oversized basic t-shirt for a little bit of edge. One thing I do love is that this look can be done so many ways and it can be dressed up or dressed down with either some simple sneakers, like I wore here with my Vans, or some regular heels. I definitely needed something in my closet to replace my leather jacket since it's been no lower than 90 degrees.
Pray for the Wicked has definitely been something I've been looking forward to for months. Panic! at The Disco has been one of my favorite bands for the longest time and every time they (or I guess I should say he?) release a record, I'm literally almost always immediately obsessed. When "Say Amen (Saturday Night)" dropped, I knew I more than likely would love this record. I've been listening to it non-stop and "One of the Drunks" is probably my new favorite at the moment.
1Kept has quickly become one of favorite places whether it be for brunch or dinner and drinks with friends. I went for a friend's birthday and I've been OBSESSED with their salt roasted pork belly. It comes with kimchi fried rice and I love it. I'd never had kimchi before and normally when I go, I order the chicken schnitzel and herb spaetzle which is absolutely to die for. A whole post will be coming on 1Kept soon however I've eaten here at least 4 times in the past month so it was only fitting.
While I'm still shooting content for the Drinks section of Eats, I've been trying out some new bars and new cocktails. My friend Yesenia made me a Paper Plane which is a bourbon drink and I've been obsessed with it since. I'm not entirely sure what's in it but the full recipe will be featured in the Drinks section of Eats soon when I highlight the entire bar, The Mercury.
I absolutely love Degrassi. I've been watching it pretty much all my life (even though at times I totally wasn't supposed to). It's where my love of high school dramas originated, where I first saw Drake rap, and how can we forget Craig Manning (Jake Epstein's character). The official Degrassi YouTube started uploading all of the seasons and I have no idea how I'm just now seeing them. Naturally, I had to binge a little bit.
For those of you that don't know, I'm in love with Stephen King. I always have been ever since I read It when I was younger. I picked up Doctor Sleep a while ago but I haven't gotten the chance to read it until this past month. It's the sequel to The Shining and follow Danny after the events of that book. That's all I'm going to say because I don't like spoiling books and movies for other people but it's absolutely amazing.
