Creative Summer Cocktails – Amanda’s Meyer Lemon Lillet Spritz

Well, I was unexpectedly hit with sickness in the middle of the week and it threw off every single rhythm of the week. I’m thankful to be feeling better and am now playing catch up!

How was your week?

I found some great running shorts at Walmart that have been a huge hit among Instagram followers as well. I love when I find great things at a lower price point! To be honest, I’ve missed shopping at Old Navy, Target, and other lower price point stores but I just haven’t found much that is aligned with my personal style at those stores lately.

I also found these pretty summer flower earrings.

I hope you have a restful, lovely weekend!
