StitchFixUnboxing_8x10
Hi everyone! I can't believe how quickly June has flown by. I have a feeling July is going to fly by even faster with a couple of vacations we have planned. Today I'm sharing two items- a new ring from www.MoonstoneShop.com that I received and my most recent Stitch Fix box! Recently I ordered a Stitch Fix Box (#9 for me), so that I could possibly find some new clothes for vacationing. I haven't done a Stitch Fix box in awhile, so I was really excited to receive it. I told them I mostly wanted tops, gingham, ruffles, a dress for a tropical vacation and a nice pair of distressed shorts. Well, they did AWESOME and I received 3 tops, a dress and a pair of distressed denim shorts. I'll share what I kept below...

Our Outdoor Living Space & New Serveware Collection

KateSpade1
Last year, I wanted to start working on improving our Outdoor Living Space. We had a new concrete patio poured and stamped, new outdoor furniture, pillows and a pergola. I also decorated the space with flowers, plants and even a patio vegetable garden. The only piece that was missing to the puzzle was some matching outdoor serveware. Thanks to Amara, I was able to select pieces from their Kate Spade line, which includes adorable and cheerful lemon decorated plates, bowls, a serving tray and trio condiment bowls. These pieces are great for hosting guests and even for a dinner or picnic night at home.

New Decor for our Hall Bathroom {Bathroom Refresh Update}

RoomRefresh7
As most of you know, I've been working on refreshing our hall bathroom since I painted and stenciled one of the walls earlier this year. I've been decorating it in a clean, less is more look with neutral colors. Thanks to Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® Mega Rolls and Target, I was able to refresh it more with a new towel hook rack, a palette frame with a quote, a toilet paper roll holder basket and new floating shelves! All of these pieces just brighten up the room more and I am in love! I am also in love with the high-quality Quilted Northern Mega Rolls that I have stocked in our bathroom.

We also love our outdoor patio space that we just updated, it's such a nice space to enjoy family time and good food.

Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom
We love our cat very much and she's a huge part of our family. I always feel that during the summer, it is a little more challenging to give her as much love as the days are longer and we are outside more (she's an indoor cat). Today I'm sharing 5 Ways to Show your Cat Love this Summer (and to Avoid Kitty Boredom!) and I'm also sharing how to save $10 off $40 on Purina

Starbucks5_8x10
If you know me... you know that the Starbucks® Bottled Frappuccino® is my FAVORITE drink right now! I usually get the Vanilla flavor, but I was excited to try the new Starbucks® Bottled Dulce de Leche Frappuccino® Coffee Drink Single Serve item only (not available in 4-pack) at Walmart recently.

The reason I love Starbucks® Bottled Frappuccino®, is because it is a mini break in the day for me. Today I'm going to share How to Sneak in Perfect Summer Moments for Yourself. The summer can be SO busy with the family, planning and getting ready for summer vacations, etc. and it's important to find moments to enjoy a little break for yourself!

Summer Console Table & Bubble Burlap Topiaries

Done6_8x10
Well, Friday is here and I'll take it! It's been a really busy week here in our household. Autumn had two nights of dance recitals that went pretty late and I had a rush blog project on top of that. Now I am ready to relax a bit! We have a sunset dinner at the winery and also a graduation dinner for my brother planned for this weekend. Should be fun!

Today I am sharing some bubble burlap topiaries that I made! These were quick and easy and look lovely on my console table that I just decorated for the summer! BurlapFabric.com was kind enough to send me all of the burlap I needed for these topiaries and a few other items that I'll share in this post.

In two weeks I will be in sunny Mexico soaking up the vitamin D with my sweet husband! I can't wait! I've been trying to plan some tropical outfits to take along and when I spotted this blue tie dye ombre hi-low wrap skirt from PinkBlush, I knew I had to have it for our trip!

At first, the tie dye trend was one of those trends I wanted to hate. But, it seems it is more tastefully done now and more subtle. I love the subtle blues in this ombre colored skirt. It pairs nicely with white or neon tops. It will also make a nice swim suit cover up on our trip if I want to cover up on the bottom yet still expose my bikini top! Today I dressed it up a little with a white lace top and added some bright pinks as accents.

Happy Hour at Home {Summer Date Night Idea}

We are finally in the delightful days of summer and I am trying to plan some special date nights to do with my husband. On Friday evenings, we usually like to stay at home and I thought it'd be fun to have a Happy Hour at home with my main squeeze! My husband and I both love to make appetizers and mini desserts to enjoy outside with the perfect bottle of wine. It is fun, relaxing and a perfect way to enjoy some fresh air. On this particular evening we popped open a bottle of the NEW

Last Saturday, my husband and I got to dine on the rooftop of one of our favorite restaurants! It's a French restaurant and we even got to enjoy a chocolate crepe for dessert. Yum! I wanted to wear something that would be functional yet chic for being outside and decide this outfit would be perfect.

Usually when I'm outside, I like to wear white or pastel colors to stay cool. I also like to wear a layer that I can shed or put on when I know the temps can fluctuate when you're outside. This wrap top in pink sand from Agnes & Dora was the perfect layer. I'm also wearing a frill sleeve top with black polka dots from Agnes & Dora (you'll have to scroll down to see the adorable ruffled sleeves!).

How to Keep Your Skin Looking Its Best This Summer

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EndYourDrySkin #WetSkinIsBestSkin #CollectiveBias

Curel6_650

Dry skin is something you definitely don't want during the summer, because so much of your skin is on display. I've found that if I don't make time for my skin, I land up spending more time and energy getting it back to where it should be. I religiously spend 10 minutes every morning and evening taking care of my skin and my skin thanks me! I love that you can use Curél® Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer right after your shower. This is important, because you're moisturizing your skin before the water evaporates off of it, which can result in dryness. This takes hardly anytime and then I can focus more time on my skin routine for my face!

I have found that my skin is really dry after I shave my legs in the summer and in the winter my elbows, hands and face get the driest. I know that focusing on my trouble spots and applying lotion to them religiously every morning and evening is how I avoid dry skin.  

I will be sharing what great results Curél Hydra Therapy gives my skin, it really keeps it moisturized and looking its best for the summer!
