how is everyone's summer so far?
we're slowly easing ourselves and getting used to the summer heat. year after year it hits us but we still can never get used to it. it's brutal!
we've signed up aston for more swim lessons to beat the heat and i'm stocking up our fridge with frozen yogurt, ice cream, popsicles to snack on when we get home. if i can wear shorts to work i would but it's loose tops, blouses and linen pants for me for days when i'm at the office and saving the shorts on weekends. what other tricks do you have to beat the summer heat?
before we head out to celebrate father's day weekend, here are a few favorites around the web.....
- my talented friend therese of craft and couture created this amazing DIY bauble box made of old jewelry and lacquered box. check to see the finish product that looks just as beautiful as any designer piece!
- wishing i can pull off this head to toe patterned shorts outfit....perfect for summer nights out!
- i'm on the hunt for the perfect summer tunic ~ could it be this, this or this tunic dress? love to wear them over boyfriend jeans or shorts!
- my friend nina's gem online shop PBC Closet was just recently revamped and because of that she's offering a summer sale 15% off on orders $ 75 or more with code : SUMMER15. check out the new and improved PBC Closet and avail her unbeatable sale!
- vanilla bean waffle doughnuts ~ have you heard of such thing? sounds oh so yummy!
- i have quite a bit of makeup obsession lately and just recently discovered this site that helps you find dupes for some of your higher end makeup or nailpolish shades. just type up the brand and shade name and voila ~ it names other brands similar to it and even provides percentage of similarities or differences. it's a great way to search for a substitute on your discontinued favorite makeup!
- father's day is this sunday. in case you missed, here's my father's day gift guide. and mandy's from waiting on martha. and ashley's from one fine day. also from a piece of toast. those are just a few of my favorite gift guide roundups. last minute gift shopping for dad? solved!
i hope you all enjoy the weekend with the dads and the rest of the family!
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY WEEKEND!
