It has been a beautiful Summer and the weather doesn't appear to be cooling down anytime soon. Fortunately for us, our pool is going to stay open past labor day this year and what doesn't go better pool side than my Skinny Poolside Dip! There is nothing in the world I would rather eat than dip and this is certainly one of my favs this time of year.
I have always loved make up, however, my love has taken on a whole new obsession lately and am especially loving my new items from Limelight by Alcone. Limelight by Alcone is a newer direct sales cosmetics company that I have recently fallen in love with. First of all, the cosmetics are PROFESSIONAL GRADE. This company has been around for over 50 years and has only been available to celebrities up until now. Limelight decided to expand to a Direct Sales model in the last year and I couldn't wait to try the products to see how they compared to my current favs. The price point is very comparable to Department store/Sephora prices if not a little lower which was also a pleasant surprise. So far they have all exceeded my expectations and hope to order the foundation next.
Swimming, swimming... a little soccer and football and then more swimming. We have been making the most of our last few weeks of Summer and spending every moment we can at our neighborhood pool.
Jillian has taken up soccer this Fall
and Nicholas has started Flag Football again.
Honestly, I began this Summer with the intent of "slowing down before speeding back up again." I put a lot of hobbies/projects/blogging on the back burner this Summer and wanted to just focus on the kids and finding my true passion. With Nicholas starting school next Fall, I don't have any intentions of going back to work full time and want to find something that I can do for years to come and work from home. I have been so happy with my "Summer of Rest" that it has allowed me to truly slow down and think about what I REALLY want to do as we embark on a new chapter in our lives.
Basically this time of year my wardrobe consists of tanks and shorts. Anything to stay comfortable in this heat and humidity. I about died sitting outside watching Soccer practice last week it was so hot. Any make up I had put on beforehand probably slid right off!
My favorite Summer tank has been this one from Jane.com. I have them in 4 different colors and noticed this week that they have come out with some colors for Fall too. Not the best pictures but I am wearing the Royal blue tank above and pink tank below.
It is my all time favorite tank, I love that is long and slightly loose in the belly area, yet extremely flattering. It is also extremely versatile and can be worn with skinny jeans or shorts. Here is a full pic :)
