Hello friends! Happy Monday! Welcome to a fresh new week! I’m starting mine off with a workout and meal prep, which is definitely getting me excited for our Fitness Challenge! I’ll be sharing more details with you later this week, but be sure to sign up here, which is where I will have all the free fitness printables available!
Today I’m back with a new LOVES and I hope today’s GIVEAWAY sprinkles some sunshine into your day today!
As a THANK YOU for reading and subscribing to my blog, I’m giving away EVERYTHING in my August Loves to one of my subscribers. If you’re not subscribed, you can sign up here, and I will pick a winner at random and announce at the end of the month!
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 want to try, great deals, and under $50 finds! All perfectly appropriate for the flavor of each month! I love sourcing goodies and sharing them with you!
This time of year, I’m all about the sweater tank! It’s the perfect top for transitioning your wardrobe to Fall when it’s still hot outside. It looks great with jeans but you could also wear it with jeans and booties or sandals.
I’m also smitten with the colors, blue and orange always looks so fresh together! Bonus, it’s 40% off!
Jeans : size up, I’m wearing size 3
This sweater is so cool! It’s a mix of crochet front with an almost terrycloth like sleeve. The sleeves are incredibly soft on the inside and I love how they loosely blouse. But isn’t the contrast fun?! And the sweater part is mimicked in the sleeve cuff.
The crochet holes are on the bigger side, so you may want to layer a camisole underneath. I’m wearing my Amazon tank that has skinny adjustable shoulder straps. They come in a pack of 4 for $24. They run slightly small, so you may want to size up.
Sweater Fit : Oversized fit, I’m wearing size Small
I surely have a bracelet addiction and I found a fun new one to add to my collection! The cool thing about this stretchy bead bracelet is that you can customize it with charms. I chose the lock, key and evil eye, but there are so many to choose from. Because the bracelet is stretchy, you can easily slip it on and off your wrist.
I typically wear my gold beaded bracelets on my left wrist with my watch and a wrap bracelet on my right wrist. Victoria Emerson is always coming out with new styles and I found several I’m smitten with right now. The freshwater pearl goes with everything and I like the little gold beads on this one with the natural wrap.
Zella leggings are some of the best quality I’ve found and they last forever. Even with lots of wear and machine wash and dry cycles, mine have lasted for several years without fading or thinning. The high waist keeps you tucked in and the seaming is so flattering.
I’m wearing the 7/8 leggings (last year’s- this years have a handy side pocket) and I prefer that length for shorties because they fit just above the ankle. They’re normally $65, now $42.
The regular length high waist leggings look just like this, but longer. On me, they puddle at the ankle, so I have to roll them under.
Leggings Fit : TTS, I wear XS

This pullover is buttery soft, made with a breathable, sweat wicking material to keep you cool. It has a cute v-cutout at the sides too.
Top Fit : Runs slightly small, I’m wearing my true size, XS, but if you’re in between sizes, go up one
This throw blanket is one of the best values in the Nordstrom Sale. Not only is it super soft and comfortable, it’s great quality and will last for years – even with many machine wash and dry cycles.
It’s only $24 and still available in 4 colors, including the vanilla color that I keep in my living room.
I cannot say enough great things about this curling wand. Honestly, I wish I had bought it years ago. Not only does it curl my hair so much better, it actually feels better in my hand and easier to use. Bonus: it’s pretty!
It’s a ceramic curling iron, which helps minimize frizz and static and reduces heat damage to all hair types. There are five heat settings that you change by twisting the handle which is so fancy! I find the lowest heat setting works perfectly for my fine hair.
It sold out during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but is still available at other retailers and I can’t wait to see who wins this one!
I have a hair curling tutorial saved to my Instagram Stories if you want to check it out.

Day 2 Curls refreshed
This is such a pretty lip color (a warm pink) that looks beautiful on all skin shades. I use the liner not only with Pillow Talk lipstick, but also with other shades and it looks great. The lipstick glides on smooth and feels moisturizing on your lips.
The gloss is “Collagen Lip Bath” and provides luscious, fuller-looking lips with a high-shine finish. The set is a $91 value, on sale for $68.
I always get giddy to find out who will win all of these goodies, and fingers crossed it’s YOU! If you are already subscribed to my blog, you’re automatically entered to win. If not, you can subscribe here.
Now let’s go kick Monday’s booty!
