Hello, summer! It’s hot and humid here in the midwest and we’ve been enjoying a mix of sunny days and summer storms. There’s nothing quite like watching a big thunderstorm roll in! I’m excited to share some of my favorite things from the past month with you, ranging from clothing, accessories, and beauty items to home goods, multi-media picks, and food.

Clothes & Accessories
❊ Mossimo Supply Co Vee T-Shirt – Easy v-neck tees are a staple in my “momiform” these days. I love these soft, colorful ones from Target. Considering how much my shirts go through these days with a baby in tow, it’s nice to have an inexpensive option. They wash up great, too!
❊ Bluma Project Isla Bracelets – I received these stretchy bead bracelets in a recent Popsugar Must Have Box and immediately became smitten. I’ve worn them every day for the past month and a half. They’re a nice easy-going summer accessory that’s baby friendly. I never worry about them scratching my daughter, CC.
❊ Blue Nile Tanzanite Earrings – My first mother’s day gift from Don and CC was this beautiful pair of tanzanite studs. It was an extra sweet gift since tanzanite is a December birthstone and that’s the month our daughter was born. I’ve been wearing them constantly and will pass them on to CC when she’s older.
❊ Too Faced Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Palette – This is not a new favorite for me, but definitely an all-star beauty product in my books. It’s often my go-to palette and one I love to travel with as well. I enjoy creating easy everyday and more glammed up looks with these beautiful neutral shades.
❊ Nest Fragrance Reed Diffuser – I talked about my first experience with a Nest Reed Diffuser in my January Favorites. My love for Nest continues on now well into summer! These reed diffusers are the best I’ve ever tried by far. They actually work and last a long time, too. I’m loving the grapefruit scent for summer.
❊ Grace & Frankie Season 2 – Grace & Frankie are back and better than ever! Don and I got hooked on the first season of this show last spring and have just finished watching season two. I’m just sorry we have to wait a whole year for season three! The show is so well written with a stellar cast and hilarious to boot! Some might think it’s for an older audience, but I find the humor and depth of characters speaks to many ages.
❊ BarefootBlonde.com – I found this amazing blog when I was searching for travel tips with baby. Amber has a great post where she shares her experience traveling around the world with her son. She now has two absolutely adorable children with husband, David. The blog is geared towards fashion, but with an emphasis on lifestyle, family, and travel. The photos are stunning, the people are beautiful, and the trips are spectacular. A definite must-see blog!
❊ S’mores Oreos – I hate to do this to you, but the cookie monster in me can’t help but share about the awesomeness that is S’mores Oreos. O.M.G. I bought these on a whim from Target a few weeks ago not expecting much as I’m generally not a fan of the limited edition flavors they come out with, but these are, dare I say, even better than normal Oreos. *Gasp* The next time I was at Target I snatched up three more packages! They really are that good.
