little loves

This week totally threw me off with the mid-week holiday. It got my days all mixed up and out of whack. Same old stuff work and kickboxing but in 100* heat all week. I pretty much have my entire August (birthday month) planned out so I am really excited about that! How soon is too soon to send out invitations for birthdays?

I forgot to add this picture last week from when the power went out for a few hours. I had to take a bath so I went old school and lit a bunch of candles. It was actually kinda nice.

 Monday mask night tradition with Amika hair mask, Formula 10.0.6 face mask, and Mark eye treatment. I look forward to this night all week.

  I didn't do too much on the fourth but I did get up early to pick blueberries from Wintergreen Tree Farm. Later that night I grabbed some delicious bar food with my besties, and the boyfriend. 

 On Thursday I came home to mailbox full of treats! First I got my Summer Beauty VoxBox from Influenster (which is totally free). I was super excited about the Clear Duo and the Sally Hansen magnetic polish.

 I also got this beauty in my mailbox Thursday (ok technically it was on the front porch). The new 4P clampless curling iron courtesy of Amika. This amazing iron is like the one I use now but has 4 interchangeable barrels. I will be filming lots of new hair tutorials with them! 

 Friday evening it reached over 100* here so I sat out on the porch with my momma (and my kitty) and had caprese salad and corn-on-the-cob. My best friend Lindsay was in town just for the night so afterwards we stopped over to see her and talk the night away.

 Saturday I woke up and went kickboxing, then came home and made this smoothie to get my sugar levels back up. I used plain greek yogurt, strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, and just a pinch of Truvia. It was delicious!

Love, love, love this new Mark shirt dress that comes out on 7/13. I am pre-ordering it tomorrow, and one for my momma too. This will be the perfect summer to fall transition dress. How cute would this be with some brown boots when fall starts to hit? I'm also planning to take it to Detriot on Labor Day weekend for the jazz fest. I like how low-maintence it seems but still super chic.

  4. The fourth threw me for a loop too! As much as I hate Mondays, I was kind of okay with the start of a fresh normal week! I am loving your yogurt fruit smoothie, I have been trying out a lot of those too! And your kitty-momma-caprese porch night sound perfect!

  5. I hear ya! Having a mid-week holiday really throws everything off. I am loving the candle lit bath time idea... I may have to pretend that my power goes off this week and enjoy a little bit of that :)
