Hi friends! I swear all day yesterday, I kept thinking it was Wednesday. Which is actually a nice surprise for today, because in my head it should be Thursday- but it’s actually Friday!!!! I’m feeling like a trip to the pool is in order today if I can draaagggg my son there. It’s that dang Fortnite, I tell ya!
Are your kids/boyfriend/hubby?? into that game?! We have Summer screen time rules, but he still just wants to play all day long! Good news is, once I get him to the pool, he has a blast and doesn’t want to come home! So, drag him I will! What’s on your weekend agenda?
If you’re new here, I write all original content for my blog and usually post four days a week. We talk about fashion, fitness, beauty, decor, organization/productivity, holidays, life with kids, and more. At the end of each month, I do a little recap so you can catch up on what you missed! I’m also sharing some of the best summer sales this weekend!
I’m always honored that you choose to spend part of your days here! If you want to subscribe so you never miss a post, you can do so here.
The biggest focus of June has been the #HWHFitnessChallenge! We only have 4 more days to go!!!! I LOVE hearing from you about how the challenge is going for you, so please keep your emails, messages and comments coming!
The food/drink rules are simple. No desserts. No alcohol. No fried food. And drink 64oz of water each day.
Exercise isn’t overwhelming. 20 minutes of activity every.single.day.
Wellness is necessary. You need to meditate, pray or write in a gratitude journal each day.
Each week, I shared a new workout that you can do at home without any equipment or with light weights (and I highly recommend jamming out to your favorite playlist while doing them!) A BIG thank you to fitness experts Cari Shoemate and Angi Abercrombie for customizing two of the workouts!
In the Week 4 #HWHFitnessChallenge update, I also shared some tips on how to lose weight. Making the little changes from the challenge are helpful to get you more fit and healthy, but if you really want to lose weight, this post will help!
June Fashion & Summer Sales
In the first Dressing Room post, I shared my my best bra options for summer shirts. I love this Strapless Bra and this Racerback Bra is pretty and practical. Lots of these cute tank tops could transition into other seasons as well!
Y’all know I love a good jumpsuit! They’re one of my favorite things to opt for all year long, especially during warmer months. A jumpsuit is like the hip younger sister to a dress. You can wear it almost anywhere you’d wear a dress, but you’ll feel sassier and more chic!
And isn’t Summer perfect for short little dresses and floppy hats?! I found a bright, happy dress for summer (comes in 3 colors) and a super cute and comfy hat that I’m living in right now. You can take this one to the pool or wear it out and about.
I placed some big fashion orders recently and when the clothes started arriving, there were so many winners! Lots of things I try never make it to the blog because it’s not what it seemed online, the quality is poor, the fit doesn’t work or whatever. These orders were so good that I’m having to break it into several posts – starting with some cute summer dresses for all occasions!
I jumped back into the dressing room/mirror in my bedroom for more fun. I think we all love a good short sleeve sweater, bow-back tanks and scallop shorts! There are so many good sales in this post – everyone seems to be trying to make room for fall clothes – but there’s still plenty of summer left!!
Work • Weekend • Wow
In the latest Work . Weekend . Wow, I shared my love for a pop of red. These sassy red ankle pants can be worn all year round to the office, on the weekend and out for a date! So much more fun than black slacks any day!
4th of July
It’s almost time for the 4th of July holiday! If you’ve got a BBQ to attend or you have a dinner out to enjoy a day off, I’ve got some fun outfit inspiration for ya from casual to dressy.
Summer Outfit Inspiration
In a new roundup of Summer Outfits, I showed you all the shorts outfits I’ve been wearing (it’s HOT here!), some breathable summer dresses and my favorite swimsuits! I hope this post inspires you to mix and match the things in your own closet.
I was not kidding when I said I found a ton of cute stuff! I did a fourth installment of Dressing Room for you and it’s full of summery goodness! There’s more patriotic red, white and blue, rompers and a few fantastic dresses!
You wanted to know how I get beachy waves, so I spilled the beans in this tutorial, including the miracle products that help me achieve that look more easily. I also taught you how to tame cowlicks. The struggle is real over here and I have not one, but two ‘beauties’ to tame! #blessed

Summer at Honey We’re Home
Did you see on Instagram how close we were to Justin Timberlake? #pinchme!! In this month’s This & That post, I show him up close and personal along with some looks from the Hi Sugarplum collection and a free printable with tips for summer screen time rules.
Swimsuit • Sunglasses • Lipstick ‘Patent Pink’ & Lip Pencil ‘ Edge to Edge’ • Similar Link Bracelet • Ruffle Sleeve Tee • Round Crossbody Bag • Havania Flip Flops Under $20 • Pajama Set • Rose Gold Luggage
My 8 year-old son even got in on the blogging action with his very first post. Thank you SO much for the love on that one- he read every message and was giddy about it. Now, wherever we go, if someone says they read my blog, he’ll ask innocently, “did you read my blog post?” So cute!
And he’s back with a first look at his new room. James is a huge fan of the Houston Astros and wanted his room to reflect that. We started with his bed and sheets in team colors! They’re the perfect navy and he’s so excited about the new room!
July is already shaping up to be a fun one too! Come back on Monday for my Nightly Skincare Routine and we’ll also be picking the winners of the #HWHFitnessChallenge next week!
