Prime Day is here (and almost over!) again! I spent hours online combing through the deals and talking myself in and out of putting items in my basket. Ultimately, I remembered I’m poor, so I only walked away with a few items. See my tiny haul and some Prime Day tips for this holiest of online holidays!
Okay… so I know we’re already about halfway through June, but hear me out… I’m a teacher and my school gets out way late, so I’ve been up to my eyeballs in grading and putting out fires (mostly metaphorical ones) for the last few weeks. I only just had the brain power and time to sit down and write about my May favorites, and I’m so sad that it’s so late, but I do love these items and I really think they’re worth sharing.
You know how much I love Amazon, and as usual, they came through for me. I’ve listed my summer haul of affordable finds that I can’t wait to wear all summer long. To see my full try on and get my detailed take on each piece, see my IGTV post!
April is drawing to a close, so it’s time channel my inner Maria and share a few of my favorite things from this month.
*Cue me twirling around on a mountain top holding my April Favorites a la The Sound of Music.*
For Easter this year, I brought two kinds of cupcakes and my spring dress game. I love this blue and white dress, which was made for sunny spring days, and I got tons of compliments on it. Since so many people asked about it, I found some similar pieces and linked them here. Most are in the $20-$30 price range!
One of my best friends moved to Colorado some time ago, but I was only recently able to take advantage of her generous invitation to come stay with her for a long weekend. It took a while for us to finally get out there, but it was a blast and worth the wait. Not only was the weather great , but we went to an awesome Dodgers and Rockies game, went to our first movie party, and enjoyed more than our fair share of delicious local beer and food. Here is our two-day itinerary, including where and what we ate!
My next monthly installments of favorites is here! This month, find goods for the home, add some wow to dinner, a Free People Dupe, and more!
Today I’m celebrating by making Irish soda bread and corned beef with cabbage, potatoes, carrots, and onions (I’m trying out the Instant Pot for this year’s Irish feast!), and an apple spice cake with whisky sauce for dessert. Of course, I’m also celebrating by wearing a little bit of green.
Before I start making a mess of my kitchen and outfit, I wanted to share my St. Patrick’s Day look.
My nightly routine is multi-stepped but quick. After a long day, the last thing I want to do is spend forever preparing for bed. This routine takes me about 5 minutes, and the products are affordable and effective.
Some people are fall people, some are summer, but my favorite season is baseball season, and I’ am SO glad that we are so close to the start of another 162 games (at least).
A tradition started a few years ago that I now look forward to every year: Cactus League Spring Training. This is a trip I look forward to every year, and today I’m sharing some tips for those of you who might be considering or planning a trip.
