Weekly Favorites: Prints








Wednesday is finally here and the weekend can't get here soon enough! I'm excited to be heading to Atlanta to meet up with some wonderful blogger ladies for the weekend! We have so many fun things planned..including you guessed it..shopping! I'm hoping to find a few more decorative pieces for our new place; so today I'm linking up with Ashlyn + Kristin to share 4 of my favorite Etsy prints.

Five on Friday



ONE.

Sadly, it's been far too long since I've posted any DIY projects on here. The funny thing about that is, I've actually been working on (and finished) quite a few projects in the past few months...including a DIY Farmhouse Table & a DIY Sunburst Mirror; along with a couple other smaller projects. I even have a few posts already written, but they are just lacking a couple "final pictures". I hope to have these posted in the next few weeks, but until then here is a sneak peek of the Sunburst Mirror that we just recently hung.






TWO.

Last Sunday Tommy and I decided to pump up the tires on our bikes (they hadn't been ridden since last summer..opps) and explore the lake by our place. We've walked around the lake quite a bit, but this was the first time we rode our bikes there and it turned out to be the perfect night to do so...not to humid and a nice breeze. We rode up and down most of the trails exploring, it was so relaxing, and it doesn't hurt that we were exercising too ;) The fireflies were out (I tried to take a video of them as we were riding down one trail and failed miserably lol) and the sounds of nature were just glorious. I was able to snap a few pictures once we stopped for a little break. Our timing was a little off and we had just missed the sunset, but it was still so pretty.







THREE.

My beauty regimen has pretty much been the same for the past few years now. When I find something that I like I tend to stick with it..hey if you're using something you like, why change it? When it comes to makeup, I don't normal switch it up all that much..maybe a new eyeshadow palette here and there (this one is my fav right now). After using bareMinerals Powder Concealer for forever, I decided to branch out and look for a liquid concealer. I saw tons of great reviews on the Tarte Maracuja Concealer and ventured to Sephora to try it out. Let me tell you, this is one of the best concealers I've ever tried! It instantly takes away my dark under eye circles and brightens my entire eye area. Another plus, a little goes a long way. If you're looking for a new concealer, I definitely recommend this one for sure! Next on my list of products to try is the new bareMinerals Liquid Foundation. Have any of y'all tried it..if so what do you think?




FOUR.

I was lucky enough to receive the POPSUGAR June Must Have Box and this month definitely did not disappoint. All things in the box were summer inspired, how perfect! If you haven't tried out the Must Have Box, use code JUNESELECT10 for $10 off a 3-month subscription...so much better than other monthly subscription boxes I've tried in the past!

Disclosure: POPSUGAR provided me with a complimentary POPSUGAR Must Have box. The opinions I have shared about the box are my own and POPSUGAR did not tell me what to say or how to say it.

The One and Only: by Emily Giffin
This book has been on my to read list since it came out of a few weeks ago...talk about the perfect pool/beach read. I can't wait to start it, have any of you ladies read it yet?

Turkish- T Beach Towel
Another goodie perfect for the beach/pool! I had seen these towels before and was very excited to see this in my box. It is lightweight and wonderful for not only a towel; but also a stylish wrap.

Lemon Wet Wipes by: You Smell
Can we say amazing? These small antibacterial wipes are just what you need after spending the day in the sun; they are hydrating and smell oh so fresh.

SACHA JUAN Shiny Citrus Lotion
I am pretty particular about my body lotion, I can't stand to feel sticky all over, but this lotion is far from that. It's light and refreshing and the scent, oh the scent..its a wonderful citrus. I've already used this quite a bit and plan on ordering more.

Lollies: Hair ties & Hair Bands
Seriously, how adorable and super stylish are these? They are made from swim suit material and are very stretchy but firm enough to hold up even the thickest ponytail. I always have a hair tie on my wrist these are so much cuter to wear than just a plain black one.

NOT PICTURED:

$15 gift card to NATIVE UNION
I've already browsed their website and have my eye on this Jump Cable charger.

One Potatoe/Two Potatoe Hawaiian BBQ Chips
I love anything BBQ flavored and the best part about these chips is that they are all natural with no MSG or gluten. I can't wait to try out some of their other flavors.
