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 Loving!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love Beautycounter. I’m 100% behind their mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone and advocate for more health-protective legislation across the beauty and personal care industries. Beautycounter has always been ahead of the pack with their innovative, non-toxic formulas in the clean beauty movement. Well, they’ve just launched their newest anti-aging line, Countertime, with the next big clean beauty ingredient, Bakuchiol, that is going to have you hooked! If you are looking for a clean alternative to retinol, read my post about Bakuchiol, a non-toxic beauty ingredient that mimics the results of retinol with amazing results but without the side effects! You can shop the Countertime line here!
What We’ve Been Up To
Working on my summer bucket list! I haven’t made as much progress as I’d like but I have:
Paddle boarded a few times…
Hung out with my girlfriends in town…
Attended a local summer fest with the hubs…
Hit the beach twice during my lunch hour this month to read…
What I’m Dreading
Dropping our only off at college on the other side of the country at the end of August. I feel fine about it now but I know I’ll be a hot mess on the plane ride home.
What I’m Working On
I’m in planning mode and trying to get my blog content planned out through the end of the year. Up next month I’ll have my Amazon summer favorites, styling an animal print summer outfit, multiple ways to style a ruched dress and clean beauty this for that swaps.
In case you missed it, on Monday I reviewed the Simply Earth Essential Oils Recipe Box. It’s a monthly subscription box that comes with all of the ingredients, containers, and extras you need to make six natural essential oil recipes.
One of the easiest and affordable ways to change up your outdoor decor for the season is to add a new wreath to your front door. Check out my tutorial for an easy lemon hoop wreath!
What I’m Watching
We finished Stranger Things Season 3, Big Little Lies Season 2 and the From Earth to the Moon mini-series on HBO. If you have any suggestions on what to watch next, let me know in the comments!
What I’m Listening To
I’ve powered through 39 episodes of the Thrive Blogger Podcast and while it’s geared for newer bloggers, I’ve still learned a lot! It gives lots of great tips and tricks on how to grow your blog.
What I’m Wearing

Buy Kimono Here
I never win anything so I was pretty excited when Leslie from Once Upon a Time Happily Ever After told me I won her giveaway for a custom graphic tee from Simply September Shop on Etsy! I thought it would fun to have my blog logo on a tee and love how it turned out!
What I’m Doing This Weekend
I’ve been slacking in the reading department this summer and am way behind on my goal to read 40 books this year. According to Goodreads, I’m 12 books behind schedule! We have no plans this weekend and I plan on spending it at the beach with a good book!
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month
All things college! Shopping for dorm room stuff, helping my daughter pack and ready for her next adventure!
What Else is New
I’m so flattered to be participating in Imogen Lamport’s Inside Out Style Blog for her blogger Q&A Stylish Thoughts series! I hope you’ll hop over and check it out! Thank you so much Imogen for having me!
As always, thank you for reading!
