I really can’t believe it is almost already July. Quarantine has completely messed with my concept of time, but summer is here and it’s HOT in the Valley of LA. Unfortunately, LA has just hit a spike with Covid-19 cases, and we are tightening our quarantine back up. My stress level is a little high right now, so I want to make sure I unplug when needed and get outside! Also, Sonny learned to swim so I really need to soak up these days of his swimming toddler bliss. All this to say…I went on a DEEP dive of swimwear because I was ready for something new and wanted to feel fresh for my mini adventures to the backyard.
It’s sad this is the first time I am hearing of some of these brands. I’ve been so inspired by everyone shedding light on black owned businesses and decided to do some research myself. Here is a curated list of pieces I discovered and love from their sites. Let’s use our spending power for good.
Happy Friday! So crazy. At first Fridays felt the same as every other day, but now they’re one of my favorite days. I get a good balance of productivity, quality time with Sonny and relaxation on Fridays and that makes me feel whole. Another reason I love Fridays is because I get to gather this fun list 🙂
Here is EVERYTHING I used, wore and LOVED the past few weeks! Wow, this is a lot and I love this batch. Here are some fashion faves, beauty must-haves, books for your kids, home essentials and delicious treats! Hope you like!!
Here is a full round up of everything I used, wore, loved, listened to and cooked over the past couple weeks! Some of these recipes and songs were so therapeutic to me. (The Best Healthy Cookies are AMAZING.) I highly recommend you check them out!
I hope you guys were able to find some moments of laughter and joy this weekend. The weekends feel even more welcome now. I am sensing a lot of people, like myself, feeling a need for routine during the week and maybe pushing themselves too hard. I think we need to try to release what we think is expected of us and focus more on what we expect of ourselves. So instead of judging myself for putting this kind of content out there, I am going to embrace it and share with you some of the products and music that really got me through the week. I hope any part of it lifts your spirits!
I really hope everyone is staying home and staying safe. We have been home for 17 days now, and I have had my fair share of ups and downs. Trying to end the weekend on a high note with a walk, glass of white wine and a movie for Sonny. All I wanna do right now is easy comfort food and dress comfortably. That feels like all I really have control over anyway so here is my attempt at it.
Here is “What I Wore, Used and <3’ed This Week: Staying at Home.” This week has been part of a major transition period. I want to continue to share what I am using and loving throughout the week with you, but I also know some may not be in a spending mood. All good. I’m not really either but maybe these picks can help bring you guys a little browsing entertainment, inspiration or joy.
I hope you are all staying safe at finding some peace at home. We went to the beach this am, waved to my mama from the car, made french toast, showered and then cleaned my shower. Feels pretty productive, actually! But now it’s time to CHILL, like it has been for a lot of the last week.
Today, I have a very special Vacay Edition of “What I Wore, Used and <3’ed This Week” for you! I just got back from an incredible trip to Mexico with Timmy. It was the vacation of a lifetime, and I was so grateful for every second.
