30 before 30.

 

i’m a lover of lists and enjoy being able to cross things off of them once they’re complete. it keeps me on track and motivated to get things done.

me turning 30 is scarily just around the corner for me; i’m already dreading it so much.

june favorites.

june seems like it went by extremely fast.  it seems like i was just celebrating my birthday and planning out all the details for our big vacation this month.  a lot has happened this month: some of our friends got married, we spent a lot of time on the beach in virginia, and my family road tripped to washington dc.

with all the shuffle and hustle that occurred, i found a few new favorites that i’m looking forward to sharing with you:

filofax pocket domino

i’ve been really enjoing my pocket-sized planner lately, but wanted to get something more girly looking and settled on purchasing a filofax pocket domino.  i found it here on amazon and it has become a new must-have for me.  its pink (of course), soft, and super affordable.

13 reasons why 

during the week nights, my husband and i have a nightly routine.  we put the girls to bed around 8:30, make a bowl of popcorn, and then vedge on the couch while watching our shows.  we recently started 13 reasons why on netflix and can’t seem to want to turn it off at a decent hour so we’re not exhausted the next morning.

bite beauty lipstick 

i stumbled upon bite lipstick when i was sent a box of their products in the mail to test.  i was instantly drawn to the amuse bouche lipstick in the shade pepper.  the color is very neutral and goes well with just about everything.  my favorite thing about the bite beauty lipsticks is how creamy it is and how long the color lasts.

hp sprocket mobile printer

on our long road trip i planned to do a lot of journaling and memory keeping and wanted to pick up a mobile printer before.  i did a lot of research of which one had the best reviews and ended up buying the hp sprocket. i didn’t get a chance to try it out before we left , but once we were settled in and were on our way, it was the first thing i drug out. its so easy to use, very quiet, and the quality is well worth the price.
