Summer Favorites | 2017

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

Oh boy oh wow, what a Summer it’s been…and that’s a good thing. : )

It’s been an epic summer filled with adventures and new experiences, including a mission trip, two vacations (one in June and the other in July), and a whole lot of cooking (a post on that will be going up very soon). 

I can’t wait to share what I’ve been loving these past few months with you guys!


Not much has changed on the beauty front lately…except I’ve been wearing Lipsense a lot more. Now, don’t get me wrong, I still love specific actual lipsticks (Bite Beauty, you're still awesome). However, it’s awesome when I can just apply a color once in the morning while traveling and only just apply a lip gloss to keep my lips hydrated.

I’ve also been dabbling in a little bit of contouring with Benefit’s Hoola Lite bronzer. That particular shade is a good fit because it’s looks and feels a lot more natural than a darker bronzer would be. If I could pick absolute favorite bronzers to recommend, I’d say that one or Too Faced’s Milk Chocolate Soleil bronzer. Both are lighter shades with a matte finish.


Pretty much the main albums I’ve been listening to this summer have been “Evolve” by Imagine Dragons and “Wild World” by Bastille, especially considering I finally saw them in concert a few months ago AND was within a couple feet of the lead singer at one point.

Oh, I guess I’d better tell y’all about that…but I think it’s better if I show you.

And here's some more Atlanta photos for good measure (because this trip really was that awesome):


Speaking of travel, here’s where all I’ve been this summer:
  • Atlanta, GA (The Varsity, Bastille concert, College Football Hall of Fame, Coke Museum, Georgia epic adventure with Cody to say the least)
  • Grayton Beach, FL (in which I basically got to show Cody where I grew up…it was a fun trip with my family, too!)
  • Spencer, TN/The River (with Cody and his family)
  • Vienna, GA (mission trip with our church)

I honestly can’t pick an overall favorite because the adventures were all great.
