Ugg BlanketBraNecklaceONCloud SneakersBootiesMules

All of these items, except for the Anthropologie layered necklace are some of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Did you catch my try-on with Ali-Shaun?!

Y’all are always asking about my favorite strapless bra and this is it.  It keep the girls comfortably up and has grippers to keep the bra in place.

The ONCloud Sneakers, booties, and mules will be worn on repeat this Fall and Winter.

And, we are already enjoying cuddling up with that cozy, plush Ugg Blanket. It’ll be a great one for gifting at Christmas too.

Caroline Winkler – I stumbled upon Caroline’s YouTube channel when this video popped up in my feed.  After watching it (twice), I started back from the beginning of her channel and I find myself rooting for her in life, love, and career.

Starbuck’s Iced Coffee with Salted Caramel Cold Foam – Y’all this cold coffee is so good, especially on a hot, summer day!  It’s obviously not sugar free, but only the topping is sweet.  I prefer it with iced coffee (unsweetened & no syrup) as opposed to the cold brew coffee, which I find too bitter.

Cuticle Oil – I took my shellac off and after several months of dip powder and shellac, my nails are once again a very hot mess.  They are super thin, fragile and two of my nails are starting to split. 🙁

I’m definitely done with the fake nails and will be going au natural for the long haul.  I’ve been researching how to repair damaged nails and everything I’ve read says to keep them continuously moisturized and use cuticle oil.  I also still use the Hard As Hoof.  Fingers crossed my nails are in much better shape in a few weeks.

Puzzles – We’ve done so many puzzles this summer and I’m loving it!  It’s something chill that the whole family can do together.  We’ve been keeping one going on the dining table until it’s finished, then start the next.  This brand is my fave- great designs and no puzzle dust.

Daily Walks – At the end of last month, I challenged myself to walk 10,000 steps a day for 30 days.  I’m on day 24 today and haven’t missed a day.  One of the things I realized is that if I go for a 30-40 minute walk, I can get the rest of my steps in in just my regular daily life- ending around 11-12,000 a day.

I’ve been starting my day with a walk on my mini treadmill or going outside if it’s early and not too hot.  Now, I actually look forward to my morning walk and can’t imagine my life without it.  I will definitely keep incorporating walks into my day.

Have a fantastic weekend friend!
