And the backyard isn’t even finished! I’m hoping July is the lucky month we’ll be jumping into the pool. Instead of sharing a bunch of my favorite things for this month, I asked the CLJ team to share their favorite things. We’re always sharing our great product finds with each other, plus I think this is a fun peak into everybody’s interests and personalities. Not to brag but we have the best team.
I first started using this as a sunscreen for my scalp but I loved the texture and smell of it so much I’ve been using it as an everyday product. – Chris
These denim shorts have quickly become my go-to as it starts to get hotter here in NC. They’re the perfect pair of shorts in my closet to dress up with sandals and a blouse, or throw on with a tee and converse to run errands on the weekend. – Becca (Good Influencer Manager)
I’ve read more than 20 thrillers this year, and “We Were Liars” is the one that really stuck with me. I listened to the audiobook, and the twist was so good — I pulled over my car! – Victoria (Brand Manager/Publicist)
As a writer, I’m on my computer or a screen pretty often. And as I neared my thirties, I noticed how much the screens were giving me headaches. A friend actually recommended I try blue light glasses. I wasn’t convinced, so I went with the cheapest pair that matched my style on Amazon, and WOW, what a difference they make! The headaches are gone, and now they’ve become a necessity. – Lauren (Editorial Manager)
On a recent TikTok scroll, I stumbled across this 90’s, Rachel from Friends inspired hair tutorial. The girl used the Revlon hair dryer brush and although I’ve heard great things about it before, the tutorial really sold me on it. I’ve been using it and loving it and I think it’s the best way to get an at-home blowout without all the struggle. -Missy (Social Media Manager)
I was so skeptical about putting these on my toes but after using the manicure sets for a couple of years I had to try them! My feet have never looked cuter. – Julia
No more tangled, green hose in the yard. Pair it with this quick connect and it’s a life changer. It clicks right into the spigot! – Tristan (Project Manager)
Okay, why did I not get this sooner? I am on a Cowboy Caviar kick and this makes it so easy! – Brooke (Affiliate Marketing Manager)
Eye masks are a thing in the past. For someone who’s on screens for a living, this has been the best addition to my nighttime routine. The velvety weight is a dream to get me to fall asleep fast, and has been my go-to for the occasional migraines I can’t kick. – Andi (Visual Media Head)
This is my girls’ favorite thing and since getting it, we’ve all been hula hoop obsessed. With the added weight, the girls and I can keep on going and going. Chris is still working on his form. – Julia
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Our bedroom changed a lot when we painted it and added trim, but not everyone can make big changes to their rooms. I wanted to put together a quick reference tool for when you’re in a busy season of life and want an easy update. Or perhaps your landlord isn’t keen on paint rollers! Here […]
