links + small things
Dainty (but durable) Jewelry I love
Can you believe the above dress is from Amazon? I got a shoulder tie one last year that I loved, and I’m really into the one-shoulder style for this year!
We’re still figuring out a bit of a routine for our summer, and one thing I did recently purchase was a template from Etsy for the kids to earn screen time.
It’s easier to limit screen time during the school year since they are occupied, but we want to continue a healthy routine in the summertime with the kids as well.
Etsy has so many inexpensive and cute templates you can edit to personalize for yourself.
I’ve been loving a few of the beauty products from Wander Beauty. I love their double-ended blush + highlight stick for travel (or even just a convenient option at home!). I just purchased their new lip product that looks pretty close to perfect.
If you’re looking for a summer fragrance that smells like vacation, Dirty Coconut may be it.
My sister-in-law asked me for some foundation recommendations and I told her about Urban Decay Stay Naked. I really love this foundation, even though I don’t talk about it much. It’s a sheer-medium buildable coverage (based on how you apply) and is a great option for summer because it won’t add extra shine to your face if you live in a humid climate.
I just watched Andreea Ali’s video all about makeup tips for hot/humid weather. You can watch it here!
Spanx made the *cutest* and most flattering/comfortable jumpsuit!
The gold necklace I wear often is the London by Miranda Frye. It’s simple faceted beads but somehow manages to sparkle so well!
