Things I’m Loving

Flowers from our yard picked by my girls

Here are a few things I can’t live without this summer:

Thistle Farms Geranium Spray – Stave off skeeters naturally. My blog friend Tori at Baby Bloomr (who is absolutely hilarious ya’ll) gave me a bottle and it is the goods. A little bit about Thistle Farms from their website: Thistle Farms is a non-profit business run by women who have survived lives of violence, prostitution, and abuse. Thistle Farms products are hand-made by the very women they benefit. All proceeds go back into Thistle Farms and the residential program, Magdalene, where the women live in community for 2 years.

Planet Jill silver circle photo charm as reviewed here. I wear this necklace nearly every day.

Lee Jeans Slender Secret 5 Pocket Jeans – They will make you look thinner, which you’ll need once you get completely addicted to item number four. I wear these nearly every day that it’s not 100 degrees fahrenheit. ( Note I am a Lee Jeans Fit Ambassador so a few times a year they send me nifty new products to wear.)

Coconut M&Ms – Slap your mama good. Hide from your children good. Buy for your husband to score points good.

Big House White Wine – Normally I’m not a fan of white wine, but I really like this. Now as far as reds, I’ve never met a red wine I didn’t like.

Swarovski Crystal Earrings – I have a pair of hoop earrings I bought last year at the Biltmore Estate gift shop with birthday money from my mother-in-law and I love them. I wear them nearly every day.

Oikos organic greek yogurt with honey – Oh MY! I love this stuff.

Victoria’s Secret Miracle Bra wireless push up tankini top – I wear it every time we hit the pool.

Smartshield eco-friendly self tanner with SPF 15 – As reviewed here, this is the best smelling self tanner I’ve ever purchased.

    The geranium spray really works! Plus it helps out a great organization so you can feel good while irritating the heck out of mosquitos. 😉
