France Recap, Blog Announcement (& TFF Linkup)

Hi everyone! I'm back from France and had the most amazing trip! It was so nice to have a break from my normal routine and spend time with my mom and sister. Special thanks to Shelbee for filling in for me last week! If you missed her guest post, you can read it here. Despite the rain (it literally rained almost every day!), we were able to check off everything on our list. I would love to go back someday to spend more time exploring some of the neighborhoods! I'm going to give you the abbreviated version and share a few of my favorite spots that we visited!



How to Style a Pink Kimono for Fall (& TFF Linkup) | Shelbee on the Edge



Happy Thursday, everyone! I am Michelle of Shelbee on the Edge and I am filling in today for Jill while she is on vacation. In case you are not familiar with me, I am a stay-at-home mother of two, an Army wife, a passionate scholar, and a lover of words with a driving desire to help others in the pursuit of becoming the best possible versions of themselves. With a background that includes coaching, mental health counseling, philosophy, English, and law, I strive to reach people by sharing my personal stories of struggles and successes. By always keeping it raw and genuine, I reach my readers on a level that is real and comforting, always accepting and never judgmental. And I am lover of fashion and found so many ways to express myself and my personal style through my clothing. If this sounds like a combination that interests you, I would love for you stop by and check out my page!

Scalloped Shorts + Lace-Up Top (& Ageless Style Linkup)

Happy Independence Day to my US readers! It's time for the monthly Ageless Style Linkup! Each month, one of the over-40 bloggers in our group chooses a theme and we all show different ways to wear it. This month Jennie, from A Pocketful of Polka Dots, chose the theme Shorts! 

There are plenty of articles out there saying that women over a certain age should not wear shorts, however, I completely disagree. Shorts are a summer staple and with the variety of lengths and styles available, you can still rock a pair of shorts no matter what your age! Make sure you stop by all of these lovely bloggers in our group to see how they are styling their summer shorts!

#CreateYourSunshine #WetSkinIsBestSkin #CollectiveBias


I swim several days a week, and with that, my skin always feels parched and damaged from the chlorine. Even after I shower my skin still feels dry, so I moisturize my body religiously. It's no secret that I have pale skin but gone are the days where I will sit outside and bake in the sun. Now, I'm more careful, and want to slow down the wrinkles and stop the skin damage. So once summer hits, I also use a self tanner to get my skin summer ready. I've used Jergens® Natural Glow® products for the past several years.
