So if you haven't noticed...

....I've been taking a bit of a blogging break.  Honestly, I was getting a little burnt out.  While it's a ton of fun to have a blog, it's also a ton of work.  I think I just need a little blogging vacation.  So, there will be no August Favorite Things.  Ally and I hope to resume in September.

Thanks so much to everyone that reads here!  See you in the fall!

July Favorite Things

Hey all!

Holy crow... it's July already?  I know I say this every month...but really, where has the time gone?  I'm LOVING the hot weather, grilling out, and all the other fun stuff that goes along with summer.  I don't want it to end!  I wish it could stay June forever, but there is still a ton of fun that goes along with July.  So, let's get to my Favorite Things for July!

1.) It's a 10 Miracle Blow Dry Volumizer buy it here

I bought this stuff last summer because it was somewhat travel sized and used it during our Europe trip. I really liked it, but for some reason, it got thrown into the my beauty product graveyard.  Well, I recently rediscovered it, and I'm in love.  It gives you good lift and texture, without being too crazy sticky.  I think it's perfect for summer and a great alternative to the Aquage Uplifting Foam.

2.) Ladies of London

Ok, so I know the season is half over, but if you're a Bravo addict like myself, you need to be watching Ladies of London.  It's exactly like Real Housewives, but with a fresh cast.  I love how the Brits aren't really into the crazy antics of the Americans.  Love it.

3.) Essie Nail Polish in Peach Daiquiri buy it here

I've been putting regular polish on my toes when I don't want to lug out the gel polish kit.  Regular Essie lasts forever on my toes, and they have the best selection of summer corals. Peach Daiquiri is my current favorite.

4.) Return to Tiffany Bead Bracelet buy it here

I've worn this sterling silver bracelet almost every day since I got it a few years ago.  I actually never take it off.  It's definitely one of those pieces that goes with everything, but also looks good alone or stacked with a watch.

5.) Aladdin Mason Jar Tumbler buy it here 

So, now that we finally have a fridge that has a door ice dispenser, my Contigo water bottles aren't really working.  Their opening is too small, and ice usually ends up everywhere.  I love these Aladdin tumblers because they're cute and functional.  The straws are heavy duty and can go in the dishwasher, and they're insulated so it doesn't sweat and your drink stays cold.

6.) The Limited 678 White Jeans buy it here

Jeans from The Limited are pretty much the only ones I wear anymore.  They have such a perfect amount of stretch, but the white ones aren't see through at all.  You can dress them up with wedges and a cute shirt, or down with a tank and flip flops.  Love, Love LOVE them!

7.) Orange is the New Black- Season 2 

George and I just finished the second season last night, and it was every bit as good as the first.  If you haven't started this show, do it!  I feel like there's a good mix of comedy and drama, so it definitely keeps you entertained.  Fair warning, this show is not at all kid friendly!

8.) Peonies

Peonies are a close second to hydrangeas when it comes to flowers.  I bought some pink peonies last week, and they held up so well!  I feel like they are beautiful while lasting a really long time.  Now, if I could only grow my own. :)
