Summa time & blogging's easy...

I forgot how amazing summer is!

Hanging out, "life guarding" an empty pool,
finally getting to read "Tale of Two Besties" by Sophia Rossi & I am loving it!

Also loving the peach green tea lemonade & my new OPI polish "Is Mai Tai Crooked",
perfect orange for the summer!

Home to blog outside on my picnic table + champagne,
I was so happy to learn that I in fact get wifi outside!

I am really enjoying these hydrangeas that a student gave me on the last day of school

Arnold watches from the inside...

Another view from our yard, our hops are growing!
Waiting for the cones to grow, & spotted this neon bug on a leaf!

Celebrated a perfect summer day with some Bent Spoon in Princeton!
I love their espresso shakes with tons of flavors!
This one is mascarpone!

What I Wore: glasses- Steve Madden, lips- Loreal's "Julianne's Red",  necklace- BaubleBar, dress- Milly for Kohls, tied top- Old Navy, sandals- Payless, bag- thrifted Dooney & Bourke

I love this new red lipstick! 
I think it is the perfect red for me!
Just in time for the 4th of July!

Summer, let's slow down,
stay awhile.

Down Under in DE!

Month's ago the hubby and I scheduled a trip to go visit my sister Bianca in Delaware,
upon hearing this, everyone decided to join!

To visit this crazy bully...

It was a weekend of crazy!

Went back to George and Son's for oysters, they are amazing there!

We also did some thrifting!
Not for the current weather but I love this golf sweater & velvet collar plaid christmas top!
Will be perfect with my Christmas loafers that I recently thrifted!

We also went back to the Panache Consignment Shop in Hockessin!

When I saw this little peacock, I knew he needed to come home!

I also finally picked up this church painting that I wanted last time I was in DE,
so happy it was still there!

It is perfect in my guest room!

We also thrifted this awesome mushroom glass planter,
my hubby thrifts the best home stuff!

We added these tasting glasses to our bar cart,
these will come in handy with our next DIY project {a chest freezer kegerator... details coming!}

We also got our dream fruit basket!

We were also lucky enough to go to Twin Lakes Brewing Company,
I love that place!

We also went to eat at La Fia in Wilmington,
this restaurant is good but very expensive
 and the menu was not what we were expecting based on the menu on the website,
 which was disappointing

What I Wore: glasses- BonLook, necklace- Kate Spade {gift from sister}, dress- Francescas, cardigan- Anthropologie, flats- thrifted, bag- 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

We walked to the Earnest and Scott Taproom for a drink afterwards

Lots of fun,
always a good time with my sisters =)

4th of July preparation!

I have never been more proud to be an American.

All I can say is-- It is about damn time.

I always love dressing for the 4th of July and here are my outfit options this year!
 Shorts- SeersucketRuffles on Etsy / tank- Walmart

I knew I needed this tank with the eyelet trim from Walmart,
after I saw it on whoa, wait. Walmart for $8!

When I saw this dress in the latest Kohl's mail home, I knew I needed it!

So ready for the upcoming 4th of July weekend!

Humble Beauty Opinion #19

I got a few things off my beauty wish list this month! 

I finally decided to try ColourPop!
So happy I did earlier this month because I got an amazing deal!
It was ColourPop's birthday so I got their "Birthday Girl" eyeshadow for FREE!
+ got the Brunch lippie stick
with $5 off since it was my first order with a promo code,
so I got both of them for less than $5!

Another shadow I got was from Frends Beauty

I got Stilazzi "PS44" {$3} after a recommendation from Bailey B on YouTube
although the swatches do not change on Frends Beauty depending on the color,
PS44 is like a blue/brown color {similar to the bottom shade in Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette}
My FAVORITE type of shadows!

Another great deal I got was on Gerard Cosmetics,
I did a Create Your Own Combo and picked up the Jaclyn Hill "1995" lipstick + "Rose Hill" gloss
for $20!

While visiting my sister I got to try her Benefit "Roller Lash" sample,
I will be purchasing when I use up some of my supply

I finally picked up the Milani Rose Blushes at CVS and I absolutly love these,
"Romantic Rose" is my favorite but I have been loving the "Coral Cove"
Need to pick up any others that come out!

I also finally picked up Covergirl Lip Lava in "Lava Glow",
Apparently Maggie loved it too...
Thank God she didn't break through the container, that would have been a glowing lava mess!

I stopped by a couple of Rite Aid stores in Trenton,
and was happy to find some items I have been looking for and for a cheaper price
I got Loreal's "Julianne's Red" and "Blake's Red" for $5.99 each
{compared to $9 each that I was looking at last week}
& Wet n Wild "903C Just Peachy" lipstick and "Panther" single shadow

At another Rite Aid, I finally found some L.A. Girl lip paints!
I had to get one in every available color, I have been waiting to try these for a year!
Now if I could only find the concealers in store...

This month's ipsy was pretty awesome too,
I absolutly love the J. Cat Liptitude Hydrating Lip Stain,
this is my color for summer, love the application, formula, and color!
I also love the IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil too
and have been using it pretty much daily,
The tre'StiQue Mini Shadow Crayon is good but I think it is kinda dark and hard to blend out

I was also lucky enough to get the Target Beauty Box this time around,
I love these boxes for $7, in this box I love the dry shampoo by Fekkai Professional Hair Care,
since I just finished up another one of those,
 and the Revlon High-Definition Lipstick is bright and beautiful!

I also got a Walmart beauty box this month too!
Excited to try the NYC lip product,
and I already use Jergens, Dove, and St. Ives products so that is good.
I was kinda disappointed at the perfume sample that was more than half empty upon arrival...

I do have a few new things on my beauty wish list these days:
Like these MAC Matte Lipsticks, I really want "Whirl" and "Stone", they are different and beautiful!

Thanks to DupeThat on Instagram, I now also need to get my hands on Wet n Wild's "Cashmere"
such an interesting color and a dupe for MAC "Viva Flam Rihanna II"

I also need to finally try a Becca product,
especially since JaclynHill made her own highlighter with them!

This Month's Empties:
bath: Revlon "Burgundy Colorsilk" Hair Color {My favorite red dye} / Colgate "Optic White" {I don't like this stuff at all- hard to use it up because it tastes awful} / Dove "White moisture bar" {I just found out these are in fact not soap but a moisturizer bar... WHAT?!} / Michael Todd "Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub" {not a huge fan, would not repurchase} / Shea Moisture Shampoo & Hair Mask via PinchMe {I love the way this stuff smells, couldn't place the familiarity of the smell though} / Lots of candles: Order Eliminating "Soothing Vanilla" / Bath & Body Works "Mango" & "Leaves" / Luminessence "Drift wood" x2 {I love this scent & need more} / Yankee Candle "Mango Salsa" / Paddywax candle via Urban Outfitters this scent makes me happy

beauty: not your usual empty- but I can't wear this original ribbon hair tie anymore, just lost it's hold, I got it years ago from one of my first Birchbox / Maybelline Age Rewind concealer in "Light" {already repurchased, I love this stuff} / Benefit "Bad Gal Lash" {used to think this was my favorite but I've moved on to mascara like "Better Than Sex" from Too Faced and "Roller Lash" as mentioned above!} / Hard Candy green shadow {I dropped this and it never worked again, it balled up and does not apply well} / Daisy by Marc Jacobs sample {liked it but not as much as I thought I would and probably will not purchase} / OPI "Nail Envy" {I liked this stuff to strengthen my weak nails after a gel mani} / Laneige "Water Bank Moisture Cream" {I loved this sample, will probably purchase, but have a lot of moisturizer to get through} / Trader Joe's "Coconut Body Butter" {have a few backups, this stuff is really good and smells like vacation- even got my sister hooked on it!}
