I had seen this tag floating around and it looked fun so I was hoping I’d get tagged somewhere along the line πŸ˜‰ So thanks! β€’Thank and link back to the person’s blog who started the tag!

Okay, onto the post! Here are eight of my favorite things, and just for fun, since its summer right now, I’m going to do 8 of my favorites from this summer/recently! Now, let’s go!

  1. Coffee

Coffee. Enough said πŸ˜‰ But I’ll expand, just for you and because I want to. This summer I became WAY to addicted to coffee, I’ve started drinking coffee once and sometimes even twice a day 😳 This summer we’ve been making cold brew and it’s so good *yummm* What kind of coffee do you like?

2. Sunflowers

Sunflowers. are. so. cool. 🀩 This summer some person that lives by us decided to host a sunflower festival and it was so cool! I ended up going twice with my friends and it was loads of fun! I even got some really cute sunflower socks to wear with my birks and I love them πŸ™‚ What’s your favorite kind of flower?

3. Confirmation

I went through confirmation this summer to be confirmed to my church and it was all around a great experience. I learned a ton, met some new people and had a great time ❀ I had classes for two weeks, get togethers/parties and it was so fun. Definitely one of my favorites!

4. Spontaneous things

This summer, since COVID happened, I figured we wouldn’t be able to do much. But my friend Danielle has her license and we ended up having a great summer. Even though some stuff couldn’t happen. We did spontaneous hikes up a mountain, spontaneous drives, spontaneous buyings of whole tubs of ice cream, and even spontaneous Christmas sleepovers in August! Shameless plug 😝 But anyways, throw the word “spontaneous” in front of any adventure and I’m up for it :)))

5. Snail mail

please excuse my messy editing xD

Snail mail is featured on my blog quite often as it’s a large part of my life. I have 10+ pen-pals and I try my best to write to them consistently. It can be hard but some of the best times are when you go the PO Box and you have a couple letters waiting for you 🀩 It’s the literal best!

6. Going to the lake

My family goes to our local lakes and rivers quite often during the summer and it’s always a blast. Paddle boarding around, tanning in the sun, hanging out with friends, eating “lake” food, and swimming is always so fun ❀ Do you have any fun lakes or rivers by where u live?

7. Ice cream!

Ice-cream is always a good idea. I hope you agree with me xD Unless you’re dairy free, then I understand your reluctance to agree with me πŸ€ͺ But I’ve ate a lot of ice cream this summer and I don’t regret it. Also one thing we’ve got a bit this year is lasso bars, and they are SOO GOOD. Go buy some pleaaseeeee 😘

8. The setting sky that lasts almost forever

Where I live, the sun doesn’t set in the summertime until 9 or ten on especially lucky days. I love it usually, because I love being outside playing volleyball or softball at like 8:30 and the sun is just setting, it’s amazing ❀ and the sunsets are always so pretty!


And now, that is all! It’s definitely not all of my favorites, two of the bigger ones I didn’t add are my friends and family, and I’m so so thankful for them ❀ I hope you enjoyed, this was a fun tag πŸ™‚

Now for my nominees!

Amber! She’s so sweet, and her comments are the literal best things ever. She’s super connected with her followers and her blogging friends and her blog posts are also super cool πŸ’› And she starts her posts with “hey popcorns” which is so cute and makes me happy so go check it out!

-Emma! She’s also the sweetest, every time she leaves a comment on my blog I just start smiling so big because her comments are so cute and happy and GO CHECK OUT HER BLOG because she posts wonderful words that’ll instantly make you happy and her younger sister Eve creates the cutest art ❀

Catherine! You guys have probably heard me rant about Catherine (or Erin) before but honestly the ranting is well deserved. This girl is so sweet and supportive and professional and her blog is amazing! She posts about a wide variety of things and I love to read her posts and the many conversations we’ve had in the comments are the absolute best πŸ’•

-Maryam! Guys, this lovely girl’s blog is the dreamiest thing ever 🀩 She’s so amazing and crazy supportive and she’s an actual model, she’s so pretty! Her blog is AH MAZING. She’s going places and i’m so grateful to have been able to get to “know” her!

Eden! The sweetest bean ❀ Her blog is amazing and so is her support. Her comments also make me smile so big and I feel like “wow somebody actually read my blog aww they’re the best” I don’t know how to explain it fully but she’s so sweet πŸ’›

-Esther! Ok guys, Esther here is the real original ❀ She’s been with me almost since I first started my blog and her support is one of the things thats keep me going! She’s so sweet and I love chatting with her in the comments and catching up on each others lives!

-last but not least, YOU!!!!! I want you to do this tag, pretty pretty please <333333 Make sure to tag me if you do it so I can make sure to read it, I would be overjoyed!

      1. OOoh, I LOVE THEM ALLLLL!!! πŸ˜„ Chocolate peanut butter, coffee, cookies and cream, peanut butter, raspberry, sea salt caramel, mmmmm now I really really want to go eat some icecream! πŸ˜‹ What about you?

  2. i’m not a huge coffee fan but i love myself a starbucks frappuccino (clichΓ©, i know). this weekend was my first time having one since march, since all the starbucks in my city have been closed due to the pandemic. it was so great drinking it again, it literally feels like it’s been forever, hahah.

    ice cream also makes me the happiest. the ben & jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie and triple caramel chunk are my favorites, but i’ll literally have any flavor during a hot summer day, hahah.

  3. This is so uplifting, Jasmin!! I enjoyed reading this post so much ❀ Coffee is the best! I got really into it around last spring, and I've not stopped since :') I gave it up for Lent this year, but other than that, I have it at least a couple of times a week haha. A sunflower festival sounds LOVELY. I have a pair of sunflower socks too! Really enjoyed this read xx

  4. Awhhh Jasmin! ❀️ You’re kinda words have me melting here πŸ₯Ί Or maybe it’s the heat but it’s not even hot, the summer weather just went like that πŸ˜… I got so addicted to cold brew coffee at the start of covid! I’d be drinking it literally every day but I got out of that habit. Lake days sound so fun, I’d give anything to have a lake where I lived but hopefully one day in the future I can move somewhere that has one because I just feel like I:d be there all the time πŸ˜… And ice-cream! Whoohoo! I ate so much ice cream this summer and then the weather went bad so I just didn’t 😭 Strawberry ice cream is my favourite, I’m just too basic πŸ˜‚ Lovely post Jasmin and I’m attempting to do tag week this week so will look forward to doing this later in the week πŸ™‚

    1. awww they’re all true and I meant every single one I said πŸ’•
      haha, hot weather is both a blessing and a curse, I love and hate it! Coffee is just good, I’ve accepted that I’m a bit addicted but whatever, life is short. Lake days are amazing β˜€οΈ
      and yesssss icecream 🀩 Strawberry sounds bomb so I’m not hating, I haven’t actually even tried it before 😳
      Yay! Can’t wait to see it πŸ™‚ πŸ’›

      1. Omggg πŸ₯Ί Exactly, but nothing beats the feel of the sun on your skin β˜€οΈ Haha yes life is short and there’s no point in trying to not do or eat something you enjoy πŸ˜… I can imagine, they sounds incredible.
        OH MY GOD WHAT? You haven’t tried strawberry? I’ll slip a tub under the rock you’re living under πŸ˜‚ No please try it and let me know if you love it as much as I do! But make sure it’s a nice strawberry ice cream because some brands make awful copies πŸ˜‚

  5. Oh, you are so sweet Jasmin! Thank you lovely girl. I was so happy to see that you’d tagged me! Such a cute post idea- I really enjoyed learning more about you and what you enjoy. Sunflowers and spontaneous trips are the best! Gives me all the carefree, happy and summery vibes. Ah, to be young! Also, coffee. Where do I start? I’ve been nurturing an iced coffee addiction for way too long now. I usually buy dare iced coffee but I’ve seen this youtuber allison who I watch a lot make her own! That’s something I want to try on a weekend or just when I have more time xx

    1. Awww no you πŸ’“ Yay! No pressure ofc but I’d love to see your post πŸ™‚
      I’m so so happy you enjoyed! Ahh yes. coffee. Its a great thing. Iced coffee is the best during summer and I have been drinking wayyyyy to much πŸ˜‚ It’s actually quite easy to make your own with just a few supplies! Let me know how it goes if you get around to trying to make some, I wish you the best πŸ’›

  6. I really loved reading this post! I definitely agree with the sunflowers, ice cream and spontaneous things, they’re all so summery! What are your favourite flavours of ice cream? xx

    1. Awww I’m so glad! Yay! I would love to see you do this tag if you’re open? Continue yourself tagged if you would like to do it!! πŸ’› Hmmm, tough, I love basically all ice cream but I especially love bubblegum, peppermint, cookies and cream, and coffee πŸ˜‹ What’s your favorite flavor? xx

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Haha thanks, I probably will do it because I always love reading tags like these on other blogs! πŸ’–I really love bubblegum and coffee too as well as mint chocolate chip (which is pretty similar to peppermint) and basically any fruity flavour. I feel like fruity flavours are better in the summer and it’s basically always hot where I live which is probably why I like them πŸ˜‚
