June, Going So Soon?

Alright friends, I think you can tell by the lack of posts lately that June has been a really hectic month.  How is it over already?  I didn’t get any of the posts up I wanted to.  I only read one book!

The good thing is, I took a lot of lovely photos that I’ll share with you now.

[1] If you’ve never walked around the Kendall area of Cambridge, I suggest you do. [2] Cookie Monstah’s red velvet cookies are my jam. [3] We visited Quincy Quarries! [4] We took our engagement photos!  More on this to come.  [5] I fell in love with orange kalanchoe. [6] Our indoor garden grew! [7] #SailBoston did not disappoint!  [8] We went to one of my favorite places: Watch Hill, Rhode Island. [9] Summer blooms were around in full force!

I do have a backlog list of posts and videos that I promise will be coming your way soon!  For now, enjoy your Fourth of July holidays!

Bye, July!

Goodness, the summer is flying by!  July to me has been full of vacation– family fourth of July weekend [here and here], and Evo in Las Vegas [here, here, and here]!

Home life has been readjusting testing new make-up products [more soon!], enjoying our home city [here], and lots and lots of poké-walks to catch ’em all in Pokémon Go [here, everywhere, and more to come]!

We’ve got lots planned for August too, so stay tuned!  What’s up next for you this summer?!

Long Weekend Vlog

A long vlog for a long weekend!  I actually got this baby up Monday night as usual, but timing is a bit off this week because of the holiday.  We’re mid-week now, but if you’re mourning summer and Labor Day Weekend, you can relive it with me here in the vlog:

Obviously, I hit a new milestone with running in this vlog, but if you’re wondering how last week went:

  • Monday, August 31 – 1.5 miles
  • Tuesday, September 1 – plans, no running
  • Wednesday, September 2 – 1.5 miles
  • Thursday, September 3 – plans, no running
  • Friday, September 4 – travelled to Rhode Island, no running
  • Saturday, September 5 – 1.39 miles outdoors which is always harder for me
  • Sunday, September 6 – beach, no running.

So, I think I could’ve done better… but I’m happy with the progress!  Stick with me and see how I do this week.  I’ll also keep you posted on that Fantasy Football team… I always share good news on twitter, so follow me there too 🙂

Halfway there, kids!

We can do it! ❤

More June Snaps

Hey guys!  While you’re reading this, I’ve started my Fourth of July vacation in the ocean state!  Follow me along on instagram to see what I’m up to!

In the meantime, I wanted to share a couple of my lost snaps from June.

The top photo was taken in Watch Hill, Rhode Island on my way to Taylor Swift’s house… she’s on tour, though, and sadly wasn’t home to greet me.  In all seriousness, I’ve loved this coastal village forever.  It’s one of many destinations on my summer checklist every summer.

The bottom photo is an outfit of the day taken on the last day of June.  I bought this cute little H&M dress last weekend.  What’s better than easy, breezy dresses for the office that you can dress up or down?  I’m looking forward to adding black tights and making this piece work for all seasons!  I’ll be sharing a couple other H&M purchases on the blog soon.

That’s it for today!  I’m off to work on my tan!

Any plans for the Fourth?
