Things I Loved in July


Hello friends! It's the last Wednesday of the month and time to link up with Shay and Sheaffer for this month's What's Up Wednesday! The prompts are highlighted, so if you're a blogger, check it out and join the fun; if not, I'd love it if you participated in the comments! Here's what's up this past month!


What I'm Reminiscing About

Life before 2020. It seems like so long ago, and I still don't have my head wrapped around our new normal. Anyone else feel like they're stuck in an episode of Black Mirror?

What I'm Loving

I added the KORRES Black Pine Anti-Aging Line to my skincare regimen a few months ago and will definitely be repurchasing when these bottles are empty. The Sculpt and Lift Serum helps to firm, lift, and soften fine lines and wrinkles. I wake up to smoother and plumper skin in the morning when I use the Plump-Up Sleeping Facial, and I'm starting to see subtle results from the 3D Eye Lift-Lift Super Serum. Use code DOUSEDINPINK20 to get 20% off at KORRES.


What We've Been Up To

I'm so grateful to live in a neighborhood with a lake. We spend at least one day of our weekend on the kayak or paddleboard.



Thank goodness for outdoor dining. It's a much-needed change from curbside pickup and feels so good to get out once in a while. We have a mask mandate in Illinois, so masks are required until you get to your table. Overall I've felt pretty safe when we've gone out.



What I'm Watching

We just finished The Morning Show on Apple TV + and loved it. This series stars Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, and Steve Carell and is based on the cut-throat world of morning news TV. I think like everyone else in the country, we watched Hamilton on Disney Plus. We saw the production in the theater a few years ago, and I enjoyed it on the TV screen just as much. 

What I'm Wearing

It's been super hot with high humidity, and I've been wearing a mix of shorts and dresses. I'd love it if you followed me on Instagram and LIKEtoKNOW.it, if you're not already, where you'll find more outfit inspiration!

What I'm Doing This Weekend

The best part of blogging is meeting other bloggers in real life, and I'm excited to meet up with Lisa from Evolving 50 for some socially distanced coffee on Saturday!

What I'm Looking Forward to Next Month

Even with a college-age daughter, I still love back to school shopping with her. Clothes, school supplies, dorm decor, it never gets old!

What Else is New

Last week I rounded up some easy eco-friendly swaps to make at home, all from Amazon. And, since we can't have a spa day at the salon right now, yesterday I posted on how to create a spa day at home. Tomorrow I'll be back styling a striped tee-shirt dress 6 ways for my Thursday Fashion Files linkup with Carrie. I hope you'll stop back and join us!

As always, thank you for reading! Stay healthy and safe!
