July Favorites

July has been full of surprises! Here are my favorites...

Pam Cooking Spray

I saw this tip on Pinterest.  When your doing an at home mani, spray Pam cooking spray on your nails after your topcoat to finish.  Your nails will be dry in less than a minute.  I tried this and it worked!


My Mom gave this to me as a gift for cutting her lawn this summer.  I had always heard great things about the Clarsonic and I absolutely love it!  My skin has never felt cleaner!

Lavender Oil

A friend hosted a Young Living Essential Oils party and I won a bottle of Lavender Oil! Known for its relaxing effects, it also helps stop the itch of insect bites, helps minimize sunburn pain & helps clear up acne!

Barefoot Dreams Cardigan

This super soft sweater has been on my wishlist since last Christmas.  It is the softest material and is a cross between a baby blanket and cardigan; a blardigan.  Right now it is 33% off at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Everly Clothing Printed Midi Dress

Another wishlist item.  I love the cut and pattern of this summer dress at Piperlime!

Thanks for reading!  I'd love it if you followed along with me on FacebookBloglovin or GFC!

Linking up with these fabulous bloggers here.


  1. I NEED to try that Pam tip! I already use a quick dry top coat so I'm wondering if there's any point to spraying PAM on top of that though? Also, silly question but which exact type of PAM did you use for it? There are so many!

  2. I've considered purchasing a Clarasonic! I've heard great things about them.

  3. I've been using Pam to dry my nails for several months now! Such a neat tip! The clarasonic has been on my wish list for quite some time now. I might make the splurge since it's on sale right now at Nordstrom. I'm also eyeing that barefoot dreams cardigan!

  27. I did NOT know that trick using cooking spray! WHAT!?!?!

    Lavender has SO many uses. I cleared up sinus drainage this week using it!

  28. WHO KNEW about the pam cooking spray??? Really WHO KNEW? Pinterest has been my favourite source of beauty tips recently. If you take vicks vapour rub and rub it into your feet it is like an instant pedicure! Left on over night and they become as soft as a baby's bottom....again WHO KNEW!

    Love that dress btw!


  29. Love the porcelain print dress!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  30. I've been so hesitant to try the Clarisonic. Do you think it would be ok on really sensitive skin? Or would I just avoid the sensitive areas (my cheeks and chin) and do the other bits?

  31. I've always wanted to try Clarisonic. I tell myself I'll start using it and then totally forget. I am intrigued again after seeing you like it. I definitely need that deep cleaning in my life. :) That cardigan looks adorable and LOVING the Piperlime dress! Have a wonderful Wed. XOXO, Elif

    1. Thanks so much for stopping by Elif! Hope you are having a great week!


  32. I didn't know that about Pam; I'm actually about to paint my nails right now so I'm totally going to give it a try! (I wonder if store brand cooking spray has the same effect). Also, blardigan - I love that. It will be inserted into my regular vocabulary immediately :)

  33. You're the second person to recommend the Clarsonic. It's definitely on my wish list! (And I LOVE the dress you feature from Piperlime.)

  34. I tried that pam tip years ago and didn't notice a difference, but you're not the first person to recommend it recently - I may have to try it again!


I love hearing from each & everyone one of you! I don't always reply here, so be sure to check your email or I might leave a comment on your blog too!
