5 of My Favorite Things this Summer

To be completely honest, I texted Ryan this morning and asked what to write about for today’s blog topic.  I wanted today’s topic to be something frivolous and FUN!  After all, it is Friday 🙂 This is the idea that he came up with, and I love it so much that I’m going to do a post like this for each season!  Here is goes!

  1. Business books | I found myself at Barnes and Noble nearly once a week this summer. I have a stack of about 5 different business books on my nightstand that I’ve had on a rotation.  I haven’t finished any of them yet (haha!), but so far The Purple Cow & Contagious are my favorites! People Over Profit is the next on my list for sure.
  2.  Almay Pressed Powder | I’m not much of a makeup wearer. I hardly ever wear it in the summer unless I’m going to something special.  When I had an event to go to a few weeks back and realized that I was out of face powder, I ran to CVS and grabbed the first product that I saw! I picked out Smart Shade Skintone Matching Pressed Powder by Almay as a quick fix for around $12.  Turns out that I LOVE it.  It’s super lightweight, doesn’t cake, and gives me that no make up make up look that I love!
  3.  Jack Rogers | They’re definitely a splurge for shoes, BUT they hold up so well and they literally go with EVERYTHING.  I love that you can dress them up with a cute dress or dress them down with shorts.  I have a pair in metallic gold, and I’m already eyeing up a pair of cute pink ones for next summer!
  4.  Starbucks Berry Sangria Iced Tea | I discovered this gem of a menu item in the beginning of August and I’ve been hooked ever since.  I think I went back three or four times that week after I had first tried it.  SO good.  I refuse to ask if it’s a seasonal menu item.  I don’t even want to know!
  5.  Barre 3 | I know I’ve mentioned how much I love Barre 3 here before, but that’s only because it’s the best ever, haha!  After every class I feel totally energized and stress free. Ballet, pilates, and yoga all wrapped into one class? Yes. Count me in!
