MONTHLY RECAP: JUNE 2017 + GIVEAWAY

Friday, July 14, 2017

The first half of the year has passed and we have already mid of July! It is unbelievable how fast the time is running! Every month again, we wonder how fast everything is going in life. However, like every month, there is a new monthly recap on our blog. Today, a bit later than usually, we have such a different recap for you–not only Sara is sharing her highlights and favorites of the month with you, but all three of us are! Btw, the next months we will be writing the monthly recap together. 😀 And we have also a tiny surprise for you at the end! Make sure to keep reading. 😍

Well guys, to be honest I’m not really sure how and when the month has June passed. It was all over far too soon – definitely! However, June was a month of some great moments and I’m happy to share there moments with you.

Personal Stuff

Just at the beginning of the month, we have celebrated the christening of my little angel, baby Ilija. This day was one of the most beatiful days in my life. Words cannot describe how happy I was. It was very special, he was great that day and I was a very proud mommy.

Read

Guys you won’t believe this but I haven’t read a book since I got my baby until just a few days ago. I love reading and I dream about my own little library, but I literally had no time for it. Finally, a few nights ago, baby Ilija was sleeping very deeply and I used this time to read a book of one of my favorite Serbian writers – Vesna Dedic. What a pleasure!

So here we come to my Favorites of the Month:

Favorite Blog Post

I never wrote about food until now, but this month I shared my very first recipe with you – Pasta with basil pesto and walnuts! Yummy and fresh, just so perfect for these hot months. If you haven’t see it yet, make sure to check it out.

Favorite Song

Don’t laugh but I’m totally addicted to Despacito. I’m repeating it over and over, every day!

So guys, these were some of my personal highlights in June, let’s see what July is going to bring.

OMG I can’t describe how happy I am to have June over. To me, June was definitely one of the most stressful months in the past year. But, let me tell you a bit more about it!

Personal Stuff

The whole June, I’ve been way too busy running from work to the university and then back home to do my homework. At one point, I simply started panicking about everything and being paranoid I wouldn’t be able to make it all. The worst part of it was the lack of time for my family and friends. I am a very social person and I simply love being surrounded by people I love, but even if I made it to meet some of my friends or catch up with my family, I had the feeling of being way too distracted. I couldn’t even manage to listen to their problems or to enjoy those moments with them. That also made me feel really bad about myself and I couldn’t wait for the whole month to simply vanish from my memories. However, it has passed (as it always does) and I am incredibly happy I can enjoy the sunny days in Vienna and recharge my batteries before the same “game” starts in September again.

Netflix Favorite

Even though I didn’t have the time to watch TV way too often in June, I somehow managed to find it for my favorite crime drama “Better Call Saul”. If you have watched and liked “The Breaking Bad”, you gotta watch “Better Call Saul”, because it’s quite a ride with moments of hilarity and very different shocks. Saul Goodman was definitely my most beloved character and I love everything about his pre-The Breaking Bad character as well. He does such unbelievable and morally questionable things, but you still have to adore him. So, if you didn’t watch it, make sure to do so. Be careful, you’ll get addicted super quickly!

Favorite Piece of Clothing

I’ve been wearing this cute dress sooo often that people who see me more often have already started making remarks about me wearing it every day. Well, that’s way too exaggerated of course, but I do have to admit I’ve worn it at least 10 times in June. You could say it’s a bit to frequent, but what I can do…I simply feel so comfortable in it and every time I wear it, I fall in love with it again. The best about it: I bought it online (here) for only about 20 euros. Good deal, isn’t it?

Well, I guess more hasn’t happened in June, but I already have more than enough to tell about July. Our NYC-trip is now over and there are sooo many moments I want to share in the next blog posts, as well as in the following monthly recap. Wish ya all a lovely July! Make sure to enjoy as many sunsets as possible and laugh at least once per hour.Sommerkleid mit Blumen Timo von The Cosmopolitas

I don’t know if it’s because it’s already mid-July, but it appears to me as if June was so long ago :D. So I was sitting and trying to recollect, what actually happened in June :D. Well, let me share at least some highlights of the month with you.

Favorite Piece of Clothing

Picknick Dresscode Sara The Cosmopolitas

My favorite piece of clothing in June was definitely this dress I bought at Zara – unfortunately a few days before tha sale began (cry). I love it because it’s an allrounder. You can wear it in summer, because it’s pretty light and thanks to the long sleeves you can wear it during colder days too. Jackpot! A dress you can actually wear always and for almost every occasion. With heels it’s so elegant and with sneakies it’s pretty casual.

Favorite Blog Post

WHY I SPEND MY MONEY RATHER ON EXPERIENCES THAN ON THINGS

Again one very personal post with some thoughts on our consumerism and why I rather spend my money on experiences than on things.

Favorite Blog of the Month

Last month I already promised you guys that from now on I am going share my favorite blog with you every month. Which blog was the one I read most in May? See it here.

In June there was one particular blog I read very often – to be honest, every blog post. Well, it wasn’t actually just in June – I’ve been reading this blog quite for a while now.

http://liebewasist.com/

Why do I love it? Well, first of all it’s the honesty. Tina writes about things that occupy her at the moment – no matter if it’s personal thoughts, fashion trends, current topics or trends and she is not afraid to tell her own opinion. That’s one thing I respect very much! Another reason is that this is one of few blogs nowadays which are still being written for the love of writing and sharing content and not just to sell you some current trends. Tina is also very good at giving advice, which I also love. And the last reason is that she is such a lovely person! She always engages with her readers and even though I still don’t know her personally, I hope that one day I’ll sit at a nice café with this great woman, sip on a cup of coffee and listen to her life stories :). 

Listened to:

Well guys, music is something I just can’t live without and that’s why I gotta share my favorite songs in June with you:

Watched

Guys, it finally happened in June!!!!!! Gosh, I was sooooo excited, I can’t tell

because season 5 of House of Cards was finally released!!!!! Hands up if you’re addicted to the Underwoods as much as I am :D.

So these were my highlights in June, but there is one tiny little thing we want to share with you 🙂

    Zuerst einmal: toller Blog! So schöne Fotos immer und interessante Themen!:)
    Von MAC liebe ich die Lippenstifte, weil es einfach so wunderschöne Nuancen gibt, die ich bei anderen Marken vermisse. Auch von MAC concealern bin ich begeistert, weil die einfach alles abdecken, was man nicht sehen sollte – und stundenlang halten.
    Kurzum: ich würde mich wahnsinnig über dieses Give-away freuen:)

    Dear Cosmopolitas,

    Thank you for your monthly recap. I enjoyed reading it. :)
    I love MAC products in general which makes it quite hard to decide which one is my favourite. In this case, however, I have to chose the blush because mine is almost all used up and I really need a new one. 🙂 

    I would be thrilled and really thankful to win this set.

    Love and kisses
    Sashka

    Hy!
    Dadurch das ich noch keine MAC Produkte habe, könnte ich mich endlich selbst davon überzeugen! Es schwärmt ja richtig jeder davon. Somit würde ich mich wahnsinnig freuen dieses Giveaway zu gewinnen! 🙂
    Der Lippenstift wäre mein Favorit!

    Liebe Grüße
    Natalie

    My favourite MAC product is definitively the lipstick. I would love winning it together with all the other great products.

    Girls,
    your pictures are always so artful and pleasant to the eye! I really admire people who have the ability to capture even the most mundane moments and objects in a really special way!
    Now in regard to your giveaway: I love MAC! Their products are really carefully crafted and are worth their every penny. To me, MAC products are something that I spoil myself with- truly a highlight every time I buy something.
    So I would, obviously, be very delighted to win the set of products!

    I’m looking forward to your future monthly recaps and wish you all a great summer!

    Love,
    Edi
