Summer Favorites

Saturday, September 3, 2016

With summer coming to a close, I thought I'd look back:

Book: The Knockoff by Jo Piazza and Lucy Sykes

This book wasn't anything completely crazy or memorable or riveting, but it was just an easy, enjoyable read. I'd highly recommend. The character development was really great.

Tv Show: Jane the Virgin

Guilty pleasure. I can't say it's clean, because it's certainly not.. but it's an addictive show. It's totally different than I thought it would be. Hilarious and dramatic at the same time. I'd highly recommend for something lighthearted. I watched this right when Beau came home from the hospital and I was constantly on the couch feeding him.

Recipe: I feel like my trying of new recipes came to a halt with the birth of my little boy.. excited to try some new ones in the fall!

Blog: Momfessionals is so much more fun to read as well, a mom! :)

Instagram Account: @_grits

The viewpoint of stylish Nicole is consistently one of my favorite grams to see pop up!


Beautiful Switzerland with my boy! 

And a close second.. I can never just choose one favorite! :)

Purchase: This top from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale

Dessert: My sweet victory of bachelorette bracket cookie cake with my besties!

Restaurant: The Churchill Arms in London, the coziest pub! It had such a fun atmosphere and cheap, delicious thai food! It was a great place for Beau and I ordered the yummiest pad thai!


John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness, the darkness has not overcome it.

Makeup Product: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose

On a shopping day with my besties I randomly discovered this amazing product. The shade is perfect for my fair skin and I've worn it every day since I've bought it.

Skincare Product: First Aid Beauty Moisturizer
I love this, Ben loves this (haha!) and now I really want to try the coordinating cleanser.

Youtube Guilty Pleasure: The College Prepster Vlogs 
One of my favorite bloggers is now doing daily vlogs. Honestly daily vlogs in general are a guilty pleasure. I just love seeing everyday life celebrated and becoming entertaining!

What were your favorites this summer?


  1. That top is gorgeous on you! And your babe is so worldly! Love it, so cute!!

  2. Okay I'm checking out this Youtube vlog. I just started occasionally watching this one blogger on Youtube and I liked it!

  3. Love the pictures! Traveling is the best :)

  4. You are seriously the cutest and I can't get over how precious your baby is. I also have a guilty pleasure of watching daily vlogs/family vloggers. Samika and TribeTyler are a couple of my favorites. :)

  5. I love how you interpreted this challenge today and your son is just precious. I love that you got to have a little European holiday and I hope to one day make it back to Paris and share that with my little one too. Thanks for sharing and visiting from the challenge!

  6. As always, love coming to your blog each day! Beau is so adorable and getting so big!!

  7. I love watching daily vlogs as well! Somethings is just so intriguing about watching other people in their daily life!

  8. Wow, that restaurant is gorgeous!!! And your photos of you and Beau are beyond beautiful! What special memories your family had in Europe!

  9. Your photos with Beau are beyond beautiful and I can't help but want to raid your wardrobe.

  10. I didn't really try many new recipes this summer either... Something about summertime just makes me want to keep it simple and stick to what I know!

  11. I love the college prepster but haven't watched the vlogs yet, definitely will now!

  12. If you love daily vlogs on YouTube, you must check out Mallory Ervin & Alexandrea Garza's channels! They're both "beauty vloggers" but they also do daily life vlogs and they're so funny!
