Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

It's been over a week since I've last blogged— it feels good to be back! I've spent much of last week...

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

I hope you're all having a great week so far! 

A couple of months ago, Love Beauty & Planet sent me a few products to try out, including their argon oil and lavender smooth & serene shampoo and conditioner duo. I've never heard of the brand before, so I was excited to test them out. I was immediately intrigued by the beautiful packaging, the fact that it was suited for frizzy hair (which I have), and the fact that they don't contain parabens and other harsh chemical ingredients, which as you know I really try my best to avoid.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to a wonderful start to your week so far! 

It's been rather hot, humid and muggy, so I've been reaching for pieces that are easy to work with and are comfortable for the weather. Dresses and jumpsuits have been on heavy rotations and those in linen and silk fabrics have been my favorite especially. This silk shift dress I'm wearing has been my summer go-to for years now. You may remember it from my How to Wear a Dress as a Blouse With Pantpost from a few years ago. It's one of these timeless classics, even though it's in a bold color.

Happy Friday my sweet friends! 

So, as many of you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also known as the #Nsale) early access opened to card holders yesterday. I personally don't have the credit card, but have the rewards card, which grants you the same access. If you shop at Nordstrom frequently or even quarterly, I think it's worth considering, especially during this time of year because the most popular items sell out fast! I can't tell you how many times I've kicked myself for not purchasing something I had been eyeing when it was available and ended up hunting it down and refreshing my browser countless times for it to be restocked. Don't go through this! If you love it, know you'll wear it, and it's within your set budget, get it!

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends! 

Denim. Probably the most worn fabric, aside from cotton. It's durable, it can be comfortable and certainly is fashionable and timeless. My most popular blog posts are nearly all on the topic of denim and so, I figured it would be only fitting (you see what I did there?) to compile those posts into one to serve as a denim guide.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine is, thankfully, still going on, since Eddie took the last few days off. We've been together for 13 years, married 9 and he's been off on a Saturday maybe 4 or 5 times. His industry is quite demanding, so whenever he catches a break, I like to take full advantage and annoy him; yes, I'm clingy, haha. We've also been talking advantage of the extra time spent by putting together some of Aviah's birthday gifts that I get to enjoy with her, like this convertible tricycle my cousin gifted her with. How cute?!

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

I took much of the week off from the blog, since Aviah's official first birthday was on Monday and the 4th of July was on Wednesday. So today, I want to recap, as promised, how her party went Sunday!
