summer

Bye, July!

IMG_2358

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?

 

At June’s Close

Holy cannoli, can you believe today is the last day of June?  My summer is just flying by!  With the Fourth coming up, at least I’ll get to enjoy some time off!  As always, here are some of my favorite June moments in instagram form:
