If you know me then you know about my obsession with mermaids. I have countless necklaces, bracelets, mugs, blankets, etc all having to do with mermaids. For my birthday or Christmas I usually receive at least one mermaid item. With all of the mermaid accessories I’ve accumulated over the years, I thought it would be fun to share some of the mermaid items I’ve found/have. I have this Alex and Ani bracelet in both gold and silver (no shame), and I’m obsessed with this makeup bag!
Happy Friday! I can’t believe we’ve already hit August. This year is just flying by! My goals for this month are to check some stuff off of my wedding list, hit the beach as often as possible, and just soak in what’s left of summer. No major plans this weekend, hopefully a beach day on Sunday! Hope everyone has an awesome weekend! Read More
I have a google doc where I keep a list of places I want to travel. I have it categorized by weekend trips, longer U.S. trips, and overseas trips sorted by continent. Needless to say there are a lot of places I want to go, and I feel like I’ll never have the time to get to all of them, but when August creeped up out of nowhere I realized that I barely used any vacation days (I have 11 left!), I decided to pull out my list and see where I could go. Since I’m getting married, an overseas trip was out of the question because I need to save my money. I decided to look at my weekend trips and settled on Newport and Mystic. I’ve lived on the east coast my entire life and have never been to Newport. It’s somewhere I’ve always wanted to go, but I’ve just never made it there. I’ve also wanted to explore Mystic, CT so we decided to add that as a day trip on our way back. Read More
Happy Monday, everyone! All of a sudden the temperature dropped from hot and humid to cool and crisp. I bought this linen cardigan in the beginning of the summer from TJ Maxx and this past weekend was the perfect time to put it to good use (unfortunately I could not find this cardigan anywhere online so I linked a few similar options below). There was virtually no humidity and the temperature barely reached 80. Read More
I meant to post this last month, but with so much going on lately it slipped through the cracks. Time is going by so fast; we’re already more than halfway through the year! I’ve read six books so far this year which puts me a little under pace for my goal of reading 20 books this year, but I’m doing way better than last year. Since I’m all about light, easy reads during the summer, this reading list is filled with books that are considered more “fluff” and something that I may not typically read during the rest of the year. I doubt I’ll get to all of them, but I’m really excited to have these books on my radar. At the top of my reading list is Hello Sunshine, Local Girls, and The Singles Game. Read More
