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.

august favorites.

how is it possible that i’m posting august favorites already? i feel like july just ended and i was dreading summer coming to an end. august has been busy with preparing for my girls to start back up with school…first and fifth grade this year; my babies are getting old!

i wanted to share with all of you a few of my favorites from this month; a few new, a few old:

bath and body works foaming hand sanitizer

023865431

bath and body works came out with a new line of hand sanitizers; and these ones are foaming. i picked this one up from their new fall scent line and have found myself just using it because it smells amazing. it’s a perfect size to keep in my purse and my girls love using it as well.

rae dunn

i’ve always been a huge fan of rae dunn’s pottery pieces, but much more lately since she’s come out with her new desk collection.  i’ve bought all of the one’s i own from marshalls, tjmaxx, and homegoods, but you can also find her work here.

r.h. sin poetry

48362131_000_e

i’ve always been drawn to poetry, the feelings and emotions that are put on that paper can be so relatable. lately, ive been reading a lot of pieces written by r.h. sin and have found so much comfort in them. you can purchase some of his work here.

t-sign easel

i lost my last easel, yes i know, dumb, but i have no idea where it went. so in the market for a new one for my craft room, i came across this one on amazon. it had great reviews, and my favorite part is that it can be converted into a table top easel.
