Hey friends! Happy Monday!
I hope you are doing well! I am sitting in my brand new desk chair, at my new desk, in my new home office, and I am so happy:) We still don’t have our floors here so I am staring at subfloor, but I am trying to be patient and positive about that. It looks like next week for that, and then I can really start decorating and feeling more settled. It has been a JOURNEY getting into this house, but it is coming together and I am so, so happy we are nearing the end.
I wanted to share a few things I have bought/ used lately, and loved! I’ll include links as well for everything.
I have been dying to have my own home office for so long, you guys! While the floor is clearly waiting to be finished, I did grab a desk and chair from Amazon (and built them myself;) I’m going to put a really soft black and white shag rug on the floor, too. I also LOVE the color pink I painted it! It is Mellow Coral by Sherwin Williams.
I have been a religious self tanner applier (is that a word????) for most of the warm weather months for years now. I wear sunblock and don’t get real (on purpose) tans anymore, but do feel my best with some color. Since we were crazy busy in June I didn’t apply any self tanner and felt pale and not myself. SO, the other day I applied my tan and was so happy! (Though I lost my tanning mitt and had to apply it with a tiny face mitt. It was comical. I have since ordered a new one.)
Funny enough, my most viewed post on my blog is How to Apply Self Tanner Like a Pro. You can read that HERE.
I bought this suit back in May from Knix after seeing and hearing Sarah from The Birds Papya rave about this brand. I am so glad I snagged it! I love the fit and the coverage, I am basically done with tiny bottoms at this point. I also love the coverage of the top. This particular set is not available right now, but they have more options that I linked for you above.
I’ve shared this particular dress so many times in the past five years! It’s my favorite! MINE is from Urban Outfitter’s and isn’t available at this moment, but I have found a lot of similar one that I will link for you, as well as a couple other pretty dresses. I love a light and airy dress in the Summer, it is the perfect ‘one and done‘ outfit, in my opinion.
Love this ruffle sleeve option.
This Abercrombie version is very similar to mine, I love all my dresses from here!
This Walmart version is a very, very close match to mine. It looks like it comes from a third party seller, so I can’t vouch for shipping times;)
I did have a reader once tell me that she searched my exact dress on Mercari (or Poshmark!) ad found it in her exact size! It is worth the try.
As much as I wish I could, I haven’t been to a nail salon for quite some time. With the move and the house renovation I am in need of a pedicure in the worst way lol. I’m hoping to go again soon, but until then I will paint my nails at home. Olive & June was nice enought to send me their summer collection and that has been all I have worn lately.
I’m currently wearing the color Grateful & Kind on my left hand in this pic, and the color Fierce & Loving on my right hand. On my toes is my fave Sunflower yellow, it is the color Sweet & Gracious.
I currently have this set, which has a ton of gorgeous summer colors as well as polish remover, tools, and all you need for an amazing at home manicure!
That’s it for now! I have plans to update my blog a bit more regularly as we are settling in more in our new home. I am also very active on Instagram and in stories.Come follow me there!
