The Cutest Summer Dress

Summer is the time of year to dress up and dress with style. I love being able to shop right online with Amazon Prime, there are so many adorable outfits on there.. I even get ads on Facebook now since it knows my style 😉 Marketing 101 is GREAT.

This dress has heads turning, you can wear it up or down for any occasion. It is casual but beautiful at the same time. I love how you can adjust the straps too, since it was a little large fitting at first.

The Best Ladies Summer Outfit

It has been quite weird this summer. I usually am a social butterfly and get to dress up and go out with friends, family, and even my son. Since this world is in a little bit of a pandemic it has been odd. 

I am not allowing myself to not get ready (almost everyday). I am taking pride and joy in choosing new fun and different outfits. Even though I might not be doing in person meetings, I am still doing a ton of online meetings, so I want to look the part. 

This is one of my favorite new outfits….

The Best Fashion Dress of The Summer

I love that I can fit into adorable clothes lately. It is a great feeling when you can look good and feel good. There was a time when I did not like to dress up or just wore baggy clothes. 

I now have the confidence to feel good and inspire others around me to look amazing too. I have to say that Amazon has some of the cutest outfits for summer and I love that they have two-day shipping. It is amazing! 

Let’s talk about this dress.. It is so pretty and fits me amazing. It is loose but tight enough to feel cooled off in the summer days. It’s perfect for the beach nights and outdoor picnics. I love a good maxi dress!

VACATION MODE SHOES FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

 

Summer means adventures, whether it’s a family trip to the beach, backyard BBQs with friends, or summer camp on the lake. Make sure the whole family has summer vacation-mode shoes to keep up.

Here are a few of our favorite styles for the whole family from DSW.

 

Roxy Lola Flip Flop 

If last year’s flip flops look a little worn, consider trading them in for this classic update. The faux leather makes these sandals look less casual than others, but you won’t need to worry about the fabric being near water – perfect for days at the beach.

Margaritaville Dock Canvas Boat Shoe  

For the man who prefers to spend his summer off land versus on, these dock canvas boat shoes are meant for him. The casual unwashed upper and leather lace detailing have a nautical vibe that perfectly complements a day filled of sailing or boating.

The Top 3 Best Gardening Tips

Planning is essential to growing a successful garden. You must start by finding out your climate, soil type, average rainfall, and sunlight exposure. This will determine what kinds of plants you can grow and what supplies you’ll need.

  1. Pick Your Plants: Lettuce is quick and easy, since you start with seeds in the garden. Make sure to look for heat tolerant varieties if you’ll be growing and harvesting in the summer.  Tomatoes are a plant that provides big payback;, this is my favorite thing to grow. Pick about 3-5 items to grow, especially if you are new to gardening. It is always smart to find a blog, or book, that you can refer to when gardening at first.
  2. Gear Needed: You will need to have a full-size shovel if you’re digging into the ground, plus a hand towel for smaller work. You will also want to make sure that you have some gloves for pulling out some weeds, etc. Consider a hose and sprinkler, as well. After all you might not want to garden them manually. Sometimes when it is too hot outside it is better for the seeds to actually get more water with a sprinkler.
  3. The Right Spot: Plants are only as good as the ground they grow in. Typically, you will want to use the spot that gets the most sunlight so they can grow. Plus, ensure the water .is near by if possible.

You can always make do with the items that you have already., Be sure to do some research before starting, too. Even if you have been gardening before, you can consistently learn more about bettering your practices.

The Top 5 Tips For Traveling With Kids

Traveling is super fun, even though it can be a pain sometimes with kids. That’s what makes it so amusing and memorable. I did the hardest part, for you and am sharing some great tips for you as you begin your spring and summer journeys:

  1. Important Documents in Your Car: This includes your car manual, insurance information and auto registration, etc. Make sure you have the papers, and that they are updated and accessible.
  2. A Road Atlas: There are many parts of the country that lack decent data coverage. It’s always helpful to have a map handy just in case because we know that gps sometimes doesn’t work!
  3. Battery Jump Starter: It is always a good idea to have this handy, You just never know when you or someone else might need it!
  4. Jumper Cables:  You should always have these in your car regardless if you are traveling or not!
  5. Flashlight: For all the times that you are in an unfamiliar area and need to see more. You might need to save your cell phone battery, so it is always handy to have the flash light.
  6. First Aid Kit: This is also another good item to always have when you are driving around anyways. You just never know when you need something. After all, kids are so unpredictable.

Side note:

  • Safety — Double check that all car seats are installed correctly.
  • Cash – I would recommend $50-$100, broken into smaller bills. It might come in handy for times when are you in a hurry and need money!
  • Spare — A backup cell charger can be a lifesaver if you are low on power.

When traveling sometimes we do forget the basics and the most important things. In fact most of these ideas/items are important even if you aren’t traveling. I usually have all of these things listed above taken care of pretty regularly because you just never know. I am the type of person that when I am not prepared, things go crazy and I get major anxiety. What are some things that you don’t think about for traveling?

Affordable Ladies Bathing Suits

I always have a hard time finding bathing suits for myself, but also for a great price. I don’t really ever wear my bathing suit as much as I should so I don’t see a need to spend a lot of money on it. 

I always am going back and forth between two pieces and one pieces since I became a mother and I think these all hit the jack pot for being fashionably adorable, but also for affordable!!
