What I Thought Was True By: Huntley Fitzpatrick

Favorite book I read this month: My Life Next Door. This was just such a feel good book and the perfect book to kick off my summer reading. I loved everything about the story and the characters and it got me out of a little reading rut. It also exposed me to a new author, which is always a fun thing. I’m looking forward to reading more by Fitzpatrick and for the companion novel coming out in August.


I have been in such a beauty slump lately. I’ve been feeling really lazy with my makeup and haven’t felt like putting anything on in the morning. Because of this, I haven’t found any new products I’m crazy about. I’ve been sticking to my routine of concealer and mascara and that’s been about it. This is also why my beauty posts have been lacking. 


Bath and Body Works Love (Hearts & Flowers) Candle

I am obsessed with Bath and Bodyworks candles. I love their scents, I think they’re decently priced (if you get them on sale) and the burn wonderfully. The scent payoff is one of the best that I’ve found and they burn evenly and for a long period of time. I found this candle in their semi-annual sale and it smells just like summer to me. It’s described as pink peonies, sparkling orange, and sweet blueberries. There’s a bit of a sunscreen scent in it to me, which just makes it

Rebecca Minkoff Bangle

I have had my eye on the bangle for months. A few months back when I was at Nordstrom, an associate commented that she liked my Rebecca Minkoff handbag. She then asked me if I knew that they had started carrying her jewelry. Of course, I immediately ran over to check it out. The first thing I spotted was this bracelet and I fell in love. However, at $48 I wasn’t ready to commit. I knew I had a Nordstrom Note coming, so I decided to wait and use that to offset the cost. However, I just kept putting it off and putting it off. I went to check it out the other day (for no other reason that I was bored) and saw that it was on sale for $28! It went right into my bag and I am so excited to finally own this. I think it’s a great simple bracelet that can go with any outfit.


Women's World Cup

I am a soccer nut. I LOVE all things soccer. My favorite team is the Spain national team and I get overly excited every 2 years with the European Cup and World Cup. This is my first year watching the Women's World Cup, and I'm really enjoying it! It definitely helps that the US Women's team is so good, but  in general it's been fun to have some soccer to watch this summer.
