Cool Summer Day Style

Okay, when I say “cool” I mean it was finally in the mid-80s; still warm but also not sweltering hot and I could wear jeans.

I paired my boot cut jeans with a tank style blouse and a fun printed scarf in a color that complimented the top I was wearing. It was a fun, still “summery”, outfit. 

Outfit Inspiration:

Mint Blouse* – Target

Printed Chiffon Scarf* – Anita

Boot Cut Jeans – Old Navy

White Sandals* – Cole Haan

Our Cleaning List

Hey all!! I hope you have been doing great. We are working back into the post-summer, new school year schedule here, and goodness, the last two weeks have been busy. I think we are finally getting settled and used to it though.

One new thing I have implemented into this year is a new “cleaning schedule”. Mostly because I was tired of getting to the weekend and spending an entire day cleaning the house.

The idea behind this is that your house is pretty much always in a state of cleanliness. Certain things get done once a week, so nothing waits too long, or gets to dirty.

As you can see, I have the “chores” split into categories. I do certain things daily, like dishes and general straightening, to keep the main living spaces of my home looking clean and organized. 

I then split up the larger chores up and assigned them each a day. Did you notice though? NOTHING is on Saturday! Yes, that is the best part for our family, we don’t have to get up and drag all the cleaning products out any more. 

Finally, as you can see, Friday is spent doing a monthly chore. At the bottom of the page, I have four items listed, and I rotate them each week.

I created my list by scrolling through other examples on Pinterest and deciding what was most important for our home to include on the list, as well as the best order. 

Certain things weren’t added to the list because they didn’t really need to be, as they are either already done on a certain day, or they are done every other day. (Examples: trash/recycling always go to the curb Sunday night, and the cat box that is cleaned out every 1-2 days.)

Of course, if needed, the schedule can be swapped around, or I can double up chores if I would like to do so. I also don’t hesitate to get the vacuum out if it’s later in the week and I have company coming.

I hope that this helps you to reorganize the cleaning schedule in your life, and gives you your weekends back!

Chicks Love Candles

It’s feature time! I love the name of this business, because it is so true, Chicks Love Candles

I wish I could send the amazing smells of these candles and wax melts through the screen to you. This Female Veteran owned business started in the Fall of 2014. Besides just making lovely candles, she is very involved in her community and local charities.

All of her items are hand made, in her kitchen! Her high quality items are sold online and at various craft fairs.

She also showcases them beautifully on her Instagram, and has a great amount of scents to choose from.

Besides just candles, she also has wax melts! Helloooo warmers!! Both products come in her amazing scents, and her pricing is spot on!

I hope you’ll check her out! I know I have my eyes on this Sampler Pack!

Embroidered Summer Style

I found this top and necklace while on vacation in Virginia this summer. I got the chance to visit the Newport News Versona store, and had a great time! 

My sister in law and I spent the day sipping Starbucks (which was purchased for us, if you didn’t see our “pay it forward post” see it here), and shopping. 

We had such a great time in the Versona store and even helped another shopper style an outfit!! 

I left the store with these two great pieces and they match so perfectly together. The detail at the bottom of the top is so pretty and adds such a nice touch to the whole outfit.

Outfit Inspiration: 

Embroidered Tunic Tank* – Versona

Black Leggings – Hue

Black Sandals – Target

Pendant Necklace* – Versona

White Stud Earrings* – Versona

Fall Fashion Made Simple: Where To Find Those Key Pieces

Summer may be in full swing, but the fashion world is already turning its attentions to fall. If you’re eager to stay ahead of the game and find some incredible statement pieces, here are some suggestions.


The Internet is not just a gateway to thousands of retailers. It’s also a bottomless font of information, ideas, and inspiration. If you’re looking for new trends or tips on how to wear the latest styles, get online. Read some blogs, take advantage of social media sites, and flick through some online magazines.

Once you’ve got some ideas about fall outfits and accessories, shop around. You’ll find all kinds of different sites at the click of a button. Visit the websites of your favorite shops and check out the online versions of department stores. Grab bargains at online auction sites, or source pieces you’ve seen in glossy magazines. Use search engines to direct you to sites and compare prices.

Online shopping is simple, and you don’t have to worry about trawling around packed stores or queueing to pay. However, there are some disadvantages. You have to wait for your items to arrive, and there may be shipping restrictions. If you do want to order something from another country, like the UK, there are various options. If international delivery isn’t possible, you may wish to use a forwarding service. If you’re interested in learning more, find out at Skypax online.

At the mall

Most of us love a bit of retail therapy. There’s nothing like taking a trip to the mall, browsing the rails and trying some outfits on. Take a friend and make a day of it. Or go on a solo venture and shop up a storm. Don’t be afraid to try things that you wouldn’t normally go for. Clothing always looks different on a hanger, so don’t assume it won’t suit you. Grab anything you like and head to the changing rooms. If you don’t like something, you can simply return it to the shop assistant.

At a thrift shop

A thrift shop may not be your first thought when you’re mentally compiling your new wardrobe. But it’s well worth having a look around and seeing what bargains you can find. You may not find anything worth buying. Alternatively, you may strike it lucky and leave with bag fulls of clothing

At a vintage market

If you love retro fashion, head to a vintage market. Every piece is different, and you’re guaranteed to find unique items. Use accessories, such as bags and necklaces, to create different looks. With vintage clothing, you’ll find that old trends come back into fashion, so it makes a fantastic investment.

If you’re a fan of fashion, you may spend your spare weekends at the mall. But there are lots of other options when it comes to shopping and finding beautiful clothes and accessories. Branch out and check out thrift shops, markets and vintage stores. Switch on your tablet and look for ideas online. Have a look at some websites and take advantage of the ease and speed of online shopping. You’ll have a stunning fall wardrobe before you know it!
