Book Club: Summer Reading


Summer is when I find myself reading the most; all my favorite authors release new books during the summer months. I can never get enough of Mary Kay Andrews, Mary Alice Monroe and Wendy Wax. All three set their books throughout Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina; which happen to be my favorite southern locales, and they make for the perfect beach read setting. I've also been following a few series for the last couple of summers, so this list will give you more than plenty to read during the remaining dog days of summer.

Humidity Fighting Makeup

One thing I've learned from living in Florida my entire life is how to beat the heat and humidity when it comes to makeup. Thinner products with great coverage, formulas that don't settle or crease easily, and a mattifying primer are the best ways I know how to beat cake face or the mid-day meltdown. There are a lot of great products I've tried over the years, as well as products I tried to make work and others that just flat out stunk. About two months ago, I got a little nostalgic and thought about Clinique for the first time in a long time. So, I went out to the mall and to the same counter I made my first makeup purchase in middle school (one of the perks of small town living). Surprisingly, the same woman was working the counter too. It's probably weird I remember that, but I don't think Belk's Clinique counter would be the same without her.

Bedroom Update with Zazzle

Decorating is a process I do a little at a time. I like waiting to find exactly what I'm looking for instead of buying something just to have it, but not really liking it. Most of my problems revolve around the fact that I know exactly what I want, and I'll hold out until I can find it. It took me a while to find the bedding I wanted, and even longer to find the art I wanted to hang above my bed. Once I picked up that piece earlier this spring, everything started to fall into place. Then, I turned to Zazzle to help fill in some smaller items I had been wanting.

Vacation Round-Up

Lululemon Hoodie (similar)
Since I don't have any outfit posts ready to go for this week, I thought I'd put together a round-up of my Instagram outfits and some snapshots from our time in North Carolina. The weather was perfect for long sleeve shirts and shorts the entire trip. We did a lot of outdoor activities, so my outfits were super simple and casual.

Monthly 5 | May

I don't know how this month turned into all beauty related items, but I just couldn't wait to share these items with you. I was on a bit of a beauty product trying hiatus because I hadn't found anything new and exciting worth the purchase, but these five items are pretty dang great!
