I've been a little MIA as of the last month. Summer has kept me preoccupied in the best way possible. To be honest, I wanted to spend time with my family without worrying about blog pictures and posts. In that time, we went on vacation to my family cottage, had a high school reunion, celebrated birthdays and spent time at the pool. I love my blog but lately it has been (at time)s an inconvenience. I intended it to be a light, happy, fun part of your day but if I'm not feeling inspired-it can come off flat and I never want it to feel that way. It's a small labor of love and if I'm not genuinely inspired, I don't see any reason to fake it!
But I'm back and with a great post from my BFF-Carrie. There are still more pool days left in the season, so I asked her what she has packed in that beach bag of hers. Not surprising-I want everything! The gorgeous eye shadow palette from BB is so soft and pretty. The Sand version is also beautiful. I recently had my reunion and tried this lip stick in raspberry. It glides on so smooth and looks rich. I'm always open to suggestions for the perfect white tee so I can't wait to invest in this J.Crew vintage v-neck. Pair it with some tie dye board shorts for some late Summer paddleboarding. One of my biggest embarassments is going somewhere and realizing I forgot to shave my legs! So I am loving this Venus travel razor. It is so cute and fits nicely in a cosmetic bag. And last but not least...I've noticed I haven't invested much time in curling my hair this Summer. I'm also in the stage where my kids still beg me to go swimming with them. This Toni&Guy Sea Salt Spray is an easy way to add texture to my hair while I'm letting it dry naturally at the pool after a swim.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your Summer and be sure to stock up on some great end of the season products and sales! XO
