Summer is officially here but no one would have guessed that from how our morning started. We have severe thunderstorms and driving rain–not exactly how I would have planned the start to my boys’ lacrosse camp this week. Adding to the chaos, there is so much road construction happening in our state that I need to factor in extra time for detours and potentially getting lost whenever I get in my car. I swear I love my GPS, but sometimes it simply does not recalculate faster enough for this type A+ mom on a mission, but we made it to camp and ‘on time’ to boot. Not too shabby for a Monday morning, if I do say so myself.
With that trip behind me until pick up, and with hot summer days right around the corner, what better way to cool my jangled nerves than with thoughts of an icy pink-toned drink (homemade grapefruit soda YUM!) and all things citrusy. Personally, I love anything citrus from sunny lemons to beautiful deep green limes, but my all-time favorite is pink grapefruit–pink has always been my favorite color! The Body Shop
has this luscious Pink Grapefruit Body Scrub that not only helps to slough away the stress of your day ,but it leaves your skin feeling so soft and smelling so divine that it seems almost good enough to eat (but don’t, okay?). Once your skin is ready to be bared, that Charlotte Russe
bikini is perfect with its citrus-toned colors. The best part is that it costs less than $38. Be sure to check out my other delectable pink grapefruit products and have a great Monday!
…and just like that, today marks the end of another school year. I cannot believe how fast the year went and I worry that the rest will move all too quickly for me as well. I just love the ‘little’ stage. I think I peaked too early as my all time favorite stage for my children was definitely 0-5 years. I miss their little voices and the fact that everything is so new and exciting to them. I even miss playing with all the Little People toys and marveling at each and every new thing they learned. While I certainly enjoy every stage of their development, I sure do miss the ‘simpler’ times as Middle School girl drama and tween boy crazies are wildly over-rated!
I am trying to relish my last hour or so of calm before my not-so-little guys get out of school and we head out for our annual Last Day of School lunch. For me, there is no better color that emanates ‘serenity’ like green. No matter what the shade, from a light, refreshing mint tone to the darker, more lush grass tone, green not only soothes the senses but it is also quite complimentary for most skin tones. I just love that mint and crystal bracelet from Max and Chloe
plus it is less than $30. Happy weekend, everyone!

Th weather is lousy today and I am cranky as a result. Don’t you hate days filled with gray skies and rain during springtime? I long for a week filled with clear blue skies, comfortably warm temperatures and bright sunshine! Since Mother Nature does not seem to be cooperating this week, I will have to make my days bright in other ways and what better way to liven up a gray day than with some fun and colorful accessories? Shop Primadonna
has a fabulous selection of brightly hued shoes and handbags along with some trendy jewelry options as well. I love that neon yellow hassle necklace or the cool magenta druzy necklace. Wouldn’t either one look great with a simple tee, a maxi skirt and those chrome and fuchsia flip flops? Budget-friendly, wearable and fun. Brighten your day at Shop Primadonna

Wow! Monday, why did you come so soon? Sorry I have been MIA for a few days, but with my son returning home from college, I am a little distracted. Between my constant trips to the grocery store (his newfound workout schedule has him hungry all the time), juggling our cars (seems we are one short now that he has returned), and keeping my younger children focused on their schoolwork as we head into their last week of school (is there a reason why we need to schedule a gazillion tests and projects the last week???), I have been busy to say the least. That said, I found a great deal and I want to share it with you. I love the ease of a simple tee shirt dress well-accessorized for a stylish, yet simple outfit as the temperatures rise. One of my favorite looks is a nautical-inspired striped dress with some Keds and sunnies and I am ready for errands, sight-seeing or whatever my children decide we ‘need’ to do. The BOSS dress on the left is from Nordstrom
and costs just under $500 and the dress on the right is from Forever21
and costs just under $30 for a budget-friendly option. Those cool sunnies come from a site I just discovered called Fantaseyes
and they are running a cool 30%OFF sale right now with the code Summer30. Be sure to check them out for sunnies and other fun accessories to dress up your outfits. Hope you have a great start to your week!
