Happy Monday, happy almost-last-day-of-June…and with that, deuces to half of 2015. (Like, what.) First thing’s first…have you heard Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song”? We got to talking about that in the Coming Up Roses Sunday newsletter last night, because it’s literally the quintessential jam to greet Monday with unstoppable #bosslady drive. (If you want “in” on our Sunday Funday inspiration-and-more, just throw your name and email in the lower-right pop-up prompter!)
Now let’s talk about some links I LOVE. Because in the midst of all of the sheer craziness that comes with the first month of summer, I love finding those blissful pockets of time to just read a great article, listen to a podcast (if you need a new one, check out Real World Branding!), and catch up on social media and Netflix. But those links though…

For now…did you catch yesterday’s upload? I did a little compare and contrast of June’s Ipsy, and both the Target and Walmart Beauty Boxes! There’s lots of neat products, but I also speak French (or something like that) and get smacked in the face by my cat. #keepinitreal
