10 Steps to Your Best *fake* Tan

I hope you had a nice week!

Justin is running the Tobacco Trail Marathon on Sunday and the kids and I are going to head out to the finish line to cheer him on as he crosses! He recently completed a 40-mile trail run so this 26-mile race on relatively flat ground should be a completely different experience!

We’re hosting a little after-race party at our house too, and we’re looking forward to that!

I finished listening to The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren this week and I was genuinely sad that it was over. It’s such an easy listen and I love a book focused on a romantic relationship! You can find a round-up of the books I’ve read here!

I’ve owned these block heel sandals from Madewell for years, and I pull them out every Spring and Summer to wear them. They are instantly comfortable and easily go with so many outfits. For a more casual sandal, the EVA Birkenstocks are my most worn pair!

This light orange dress looks like an easy thing to throw on during the warmer months!

And this blue dress from Amazon is speaking to me!

Have you heard of the Clue app? Amanda *clued* me into it and it’s great. It’s how I track my period and it’s super user-friendly. Highly recommend!

I tried a new anti-humidity / frizz control spray and nearly choked on the scent. I’m returning it swiftly and going back to using my favorite product from Kenra!
