A Few Things....Lately



Hellooooooooooooooooo!  I finally found my voice again after so many months absent.  I hope each and every one of you are doing well and enjoying Summer?  It's been a whirlwind here and no need to bore you with a recap.  Let's just assume life here around my neck of the woods is fun and hectic at the same time.  I find myself these days waking later than school days, working out, spending time with family, driving kiddoes to practice, tournaments, camps, friends', etc., etc.  I have enjoyed a collection of things over the last couple of weeks and thought I would share them with you, a sort of visual recap if you will.  I in no way received any financial compensation for the following.  My opinion reigns supreme here, yet I wanted to share with you as I think you might like a few of these.  I read a very cool post yesterday that speaks to linking back to brands....hereSuzanne is spot on here!


Hydrangeas on their last legs..er, petals!




New favorite tinted moisturizer, 2 great oil fragrances and the companies give back too(win, win), long lasting eyeshadow for those steamy, Southern days and nights.





New favorite t'shirt from my Sissy, thrift store clutch, new rainboots(would Mary Poppins wear these?), handmade earrings.





I hope you enjoy the rest of your Summer and I hope to join you here again soon! 

Happy Canada Day to all of my Canadian friends and Happy Fourth of July!!

  1. Hi Shon, it sounds like our summers have a similar schedule. I spend lots of time driving my sons around. I decided to take a boot camp every morning to celebrate ME.
    By the way...drooling over the clutch!

  3. Ok....I NEED to see you wearing those shoes! I love that you are enjoying your summer doing the things that you love. It is important to remember that real life comes first and the blogging world will be here AFTER you finish playing, working out and living!!

  6. So nice you've found your bloggy voice again : )

    Thanks for the shout-out.

    I'm expecting the hydrangeas to bloom this week. The peonies finished about a week ago.

    The outfit is GREAT! Love love it all. Such a fun eclectic mix. I bet it looks HOT on.

    Thanks for the Canada Day wishes. It was a good one.

    Happy 4th of July!

    bisous

  7. Hey Shon:) I can't wait for Book 5 either. Rick Riordan did so well with this series:) And to be honest, I don't think I can watch TFIOS. I've never read the book, but after someone told me the ending, there's no way I can take all that emotion! :P

  8. I don't wear much of any makeup but I am a fan of tinted moisturizer. May have to give that a go and it looks like my color!

    I wish I was waking later than usual. I actually find myself waking earlier than school to get my stuff out of the way to make sure I have time to take them out during the day. When school starts I'm sure I'll take a few days to just have a moment to myself. I'm counting down!

    1. I am all about a few products that can give me the most benefits. Take your rest when you can, the kids will understand.
