When my husband and I purchased our 1st home 2 years ago, I was over the moon excited for the home decorating process! I have always dreamed of spending my time choosing color palettes, fixtures, and furniture to turn our house into a home that we would love and be proud of.
Our home contains 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 2 living areas. For me, that was a lot of ground to cover as far as decor was concerned. I knew that I absolutely wanted to have a thoughtful process with my decorating decisions. Plus the Virgo in me needed each room to be the perfect reflection of our lifestyle and personalities.
One of my favorite meals to cook up for Sunday dinner is hands down my Lemon Garlic Butter Chicken Green Beans Skillet! Not only is this dish seriously flavorful, but also a delicious comfort meal— which is perfect for a Sunday evening. For me, making a ‘balanced’ meal that includes a savory protein and yummy veggies is how I like to start off my meal prepping for the week.
So some of you may ask ‘What is Amazon Prime Day?’ Amazon Prime Day is the annual shopping holiday that’s exclusive to Prime subscribers. This year, Prime Day launches TODAY July 15th, and unlike Black Friday or Cyber Monday, deals last up to 36 hours. If you don’t have Amazon Prime, you can sign up for a free trial just to take advantage of the deals. You may not find absolutely everything on your wish list during the Prime Day discounts, but it’s the best opportunity to stock up on gifts during the summer months.
What do you normally wear on ‘Casual Fridays’ at work? Most companies give the okay for jeans and more relaxed looks and while I am always for that, I still tend to follow my own dress code and lean towards a more polished look. For me, this means no denim with holes at the knees, no flip flops, and no tank tops. The obvious stuff. Each company culture is different however, but here’s an example of what I’ve worn on a casual Friday minus the heels. I prefer a nude pair of flats during the day. The heels would be something I’d change into if hubby and I decide to meet up for date night right after work.
Summer has officially arrived and if you’re like me, I’m sure you have a few special occasions marked on your calendar this season. Anything from backyard BBQ parties, to weddings, baby showers, or rooftop parties are my list of events to attend in the next few months. Since I’m making my own plans of making sure I have something cute to wear, I figured I’d share with you some of my favorites. Hopefully this can give point you in the right direction of something chic wear.
I hope you all have been enjoying this long holiday weekend! I’ve been keeping cool indoors these past few days because it has been ridiculously hot out. With the heat index already rising I think nows the perfect time to get a few cute summer looks together. Whether you plan to hang out each weekend by the pool, go on summer vacay, date night, or casual gatherings I’ve chosen a few items that are perfect for the upcoming season.
