I've loved a lot of random things this summer, so I wanted to share a handful of them with you here today. So let's get down to it:
I got back on the reading train this summer and have been diving into books before bed instead of mindlessly scrolling my phone. I'm hoping to make this a habit even after summer ends. Books I've read this summer include:
+ Summer Rental (loved)
+ Deep Dish (slow to start but ended up super cute)
+ Slightly South of Simple (also loved)
+ And The Secret to Southern Charm (next on my list!)
These cute cactus pajamas my friend Megan shared with me are a huge favorite around here! They're so soft and cute on the boys, and there's nothing I love more than matching brothers!
I have worn the mess out of these shorts this summer, which I got on sale at J.Crew Factory for less than $20. And bonus: they have pockets!
And speaking of clothes, I didn't really love anything from the Nordstrom sale this year (was it just me or was it a little...blah...this year?), but I did scoop up two pairs of my beloved Zella leggings (one pair of crops and one pair of leggings), and this shirt a few weeks before the sale that I'm dying to wear this fall.
I also found some caaaah-yute tops at the good ol' Walmart this summer, too! Walmart has been stepping up their game lately and I'm not hating it!
I got this top:
This shirt (which is actually much cuter in person):
And this top:
Some favorite beauty products I'm loving this summer include:
+ This glycolic cleanser that I use once a week at nighttime to slough away dead skin cells (I couple it with my Clarisonic for double the exfoliation).
+ This Vitamin C Serum that I use at nighttime to help with anti-aging and wrinkles around my eyes and mouth.
+ And this eyelash primer that also doubles as a very natural looking mascara that I wear on days I don't want to put a full face of makeup on but still want to look put-together and awake.
And the biggest service I've been loving is still Instacart (I fell in love with ALDI by starting Instacart)! It has been such a lifesaver to have my groceries delivered to my house this summer when the boys have been home. Not only do I not have to take them with me (and by "take" I mean "battle them the entire time I'm there") to the grocery store, but I don't have to get them out in the oppressive heat we've been having this summer. It's so nice to just order online and have it delivered to my house during nap time!
If you haven't tried Instacart yet, here is a code you can use for $10 off plus free delivery on your first order! It's so helpful and I so wish I had this as a brand new mom! (Not sponsored at all; I'm just obsessed!)
I hope y'all have wonderful weekends! It's good to be back!
