June Loves

It’s been a fun week over here! We kicked off the first ever #HWHFitnessChallenge and I have been blown away by how fired up you are to do this with me! We have over 1,500 women from all over the U.S., Australia, the UK, Wales, Ireland, and Greece doing the challenge together! Isn’t that amazing?!  And big shout out to KAY, who’s joining in at age 70! You are seriously impressive, Kay and are probably kicking all of our butts!

The 30-Day Fitness Challenge is FREE to join. It includes a meal plan and food tips, along with a 20-minute at-home workout you can do without weights or any special equipment. I’ll have a new fitness post (and workout) up every Monday until the challenge ends on July 3.

My Weekend Newsletter will have a new MEAL PLAN for next week! It will come directly to your email bright and early Saturday morning so you can make your grocery list and prepare for the week.  Subscribe here if you haven’t already.

On the fashion front, I shared three cute summer jumpsuits, a perfect Summer minidress and the hat I can’t stop wearing. In the latest This & That post, you’ll find out what’s been happening lately over here, including how to clean plastic outdoor furniture, a printable to help your kids limit screen time this summer, and Gibson x Hi Sugarplum FAVES that I recently got in Petites with helpful sizing info.


And now that June is upon us, it’s time for another Monthly Loves with my June favorites! I love sourcing goodies and putting these collages together for you!

If you’re new to Loves, it’s where I share things I’m loving each month, with the aim to highlight fabulous things I swear by, some things I might want to try, great deals, and under $50 finds! All perfectly appropriate for the flavor of each month!

Pinning these images helps my blog, so feel free to save to your Pinterest boards!  You can follow my Pinterest here.

I’ve shown this swimsuit before, but it’s so good it’s worth sharing again, especially in June when a lot of us will be taking kids to the pool! It’s back in stock in all sizes and PRICE MATCHED in black, light blue and white! Also on sale here in more colors.  Along with the Tory Burch Miller sandals on sale – discount is applied at checkout.

The swimsuit is sassy but still kid-friendly with a halter neckline and gorgeous crochet detailing throughout. Whenever I’ve worn this, I’ve gotten tons of compliments on it! It’s definitely a June monthly favorite!

I found a great quality pair of sunglasses in aviator style at half the price of Ray-Bans. I love my blue Aviators so much that I wanted a second pair in another color, so I choose the gold/pink lens, but the pink also looks yellow/gold when you look from certain angles. The shape is the same as the aviators, but they are slightly larger.  I think they’re a great dupe and look super cute on!

Lipstick & Lip Pencil

For someone that usually applies a sheer lip gloss over most of her lipsticks, I was happy to find this one doesn’t require a coat of gloss.  It already has a slight sheen to it and it feels incredibly moisturizing on.

I’m wearing Lipstick ‘Patent Pink’ & Lip Pencil ‘ Edge to Edge’, which is a perfect pale pink for everyday- but they come in a ton of pretty hues. If you really want to up your lip game, definitely use the lip pencil to line your lips before applying the lipstick. Pencil in just under the natural line of your bottom lip, then pencil in the top lips right at the lip line. Your lips will look fuller and poutier without any cosmetic procedures!

I’ve been eyeing this gold plated link bracelet for months and finally added it to my cart! It didn’t disappoint! I like the style with the mix of links and the adjustable size that fits small to large wrists. It’s only $38!

Just added this baby to my cart too!  I adore the v-neck, stripes, casual style and of course, the ruffle trim sleeves!

So many of the woven circle bags I’ve seen lately are huge.  Much too large for my liking, but this 9-inch bag looks just right  And it’s only $34!

It’s jean shorts and flip flops season!  My Havianas and Tory Burch are my go-to flips. The Tory Burch are a bit sassier with fun prints (love the ‘blueberry‘). The Havianas are a classic slim, lightweight, and comfortable flip flop that will serve you well all summer. I’ve had my black pair for years and they’re also what I wear when I get a pedicure.  At under $30, I want them in every color!


Pajama sets are not just for kids!  Every night, I look forward to changing out of my regular clothes into a nice pair of pajamas. It signals the end of the day and feels like you’re taking care of yourself by putting on something ‘nice’ to sleep in.

It’s so hot here lately, that I had to find a shorts/tank pair and I’m smitten with this set. They make for comfortable, cool sleep and lovely lounging around before bed.

They’re $38 a set, or 2 for $60. I really wanted the blue stripe, but they didn’t have my size.  Luckily, grey is also one of my favorite colors. Isn’t the lace trim on the racerback tank cute?

If you have travel plans on the agenda this summer and your luggage needs an upgrade, I definitely recommend this rose gold hard case luggage. I bought the set of two and the big one is massive! I can pack for myself and the kiddos in this one. It’s amazing though because the wheels make it glide easily in all directions.

The smaller carry-on is a great size too and perfect for a weekend getaway.

And don’t forget the packing cubes! They are seriously life changing and you need them if you travel, especially with kids! See how I use mine here.

I use the cover for checking my luggage in to prevent the pretty rose gold from getting all dirty.

I get so many questions about my pink marble phone case and pink pop socket that I wanted to share them with you here. I have the big daddy iPhone 7+ and the pop socket helps me get a better grip on my phone. I honestly can’t believe I lived without it for so long! You can push the socket down so it’s more flat against your phone, then pull it out for easy holding and carrying.

I also run with my phone and ear buds, so having the pop socket makes it much easier to keep in my hand.

  1. I just wanted to check regarding instagram posts. My profile is private so I think unless you follow me, you won’t see any post I have used the hashtag on? I don’t want to tag you in every picture as I think that would get boring for you but I would want you to see I am taking part haha. Could you double check if you see them?

I am very very overweight so if there is any movement on the scale on Monday, I will be very happy 🙂

  2. I keep noticing the two stools/benches at the end of your bed and would love to know where those are from? Would you mind sharing this info? Thanks so much.

  3. Great post Megan. There’s a reason you are one of my fav. bloggers, some fun and great content. I like your new link bracelet too! Also, thank-you for motivating us for the fitness challenge, I’ve had a really good week of exercise and clean eating. Have a super weekend with your family!
