I wanted to get the perfect Father’s Day gift, for Scott, this year. There are many reasons for this. As you know, Scott is a foster daddy. He and I have been fostering babies for a few years, now. It takes a very special man to love a child enough to foster, over having his own biological child. I know gifts are not necessary, but when I was invited to collaborate with JORD, it was a no-brainer for me to have Scott select a men’s watch, by JORD, for an early Father’s Day gift.
Ah, the warm and sunny weather has finally arrived! Now, it’s not so hard to believe Memorial Day is around the corner! What are your plans? Scott and I hope to make it down to the shore, at least one day. I also may be doing a little shopping to take advantage of the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale! I already have my eye on a few pieces. Mainly summer rompers and jumpsuits!!
Every once in a while, I’m asked about my skin regime. Aside from genetics, there are ways we can take care of our skin. From avoiding sun exposure, to regular facials, and using quality products. (Not meaning expensive products!) In this post, I’ll share my favorite organic skincare and natural makeup products.
The Lord put this on my heart, today. I feel that someone can benefit from this post. Sometimes, we go through trials that test our faith. Other times, we feel overwhelmed with loss, grief, or despair. Perhaps, Mother’s Day is a time in which you struggle, because you lost your mom or a child. Maybe you are waiting to start a family, and feel that nothing is going your way. Or, maybe you do have what you thought you always wanted, and you’re still dealing with grief.
I’m writing this post to remind you, that no matter what you lose (or have lost) and no matter what you are longing for, there is something that can and will always be yours, no matter what your circumstances look like! Your Faith. Your Hope. Your Joy. (Ok, that’s a few things.)
Yesterday, I went shopping at Nordstrom for a summer dress. I was looking for something pretty and lightweight to wear to a day-time birthday party, at a country club. I was surprised to see that the selection was so much slimmer than what Nordstrom has to offer, on line. But, if you watched my Instagram Story, you saw me try on a few dresses that were available in the store. The price range was from $59-$495. (I know, that’s pretty crazy!) Just goes to show you that it’s not about the price tag. It’s about how you feel wearing the dress. Here are five Nordstrom Summer Dresses that could be worn at your next summer event.
I’ve traveled to Europe, three times, during the hot summer months. It’s generally crowded and sometimes very hot. If you’re relaxing by the Mediterranean Sea or on a yacht, the weather will be a blessing. But, if you’re sightseeing, standing in lines, and walking for miles, it can be rather unpleasant. The most important thing to consider before visiting Europe, in summer, is to pack smart and plan even smarter. You’ll be happy that you took the extra time, before enjoying your well deserved vacation!
