Summer is here. I can’t believe it, the past year has been the fastest of my life. I’ve moved into a new home, had a son, and changed careers (slightly). I’m counting my blessings to still be able to share some of my summer favorites with you. I love writing roundups. I love reading roundups and discovering what other bloggers are in love with at this very moment. It’s a great way to discover gems you might otherwise overlook.
Please note I received samples of some of these items in order to write these reviews. My opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way. I only bring you items I use personally and love.
The last thing I feel like doing after a day at work, or a day at the beach for that matter, is cooking a long, drawn out meal. The summer months are hard to feed your family healthy meals. After being inside all day, all you want to do is be outside enjoying the weather. If you’re been outside all day, you’re probably tired and want a break. Luvo meals are a great option. They are healthy, and made with wholesome ingredients. They taste amazing. I promise you’ll never know these were frozen meals. They store well in your freezer, and they are easy to make. The variety of flavors guarantees that there’s something for everyone in your family. These are my go to on days I just can’t bear to cook. Cheaper, healthier, and honestly tastier than takeout, there are a life saver.
I Heart Summer
My first favorite thing is a trusted, tried and true favorite, Chapstick. Their new I Heart Summer line has Sweet Watermelon, Pink Lemonade, and Peaches N’ Cream. They are fun and whimsical, but provide the same awesome protection you’ve used to. I love seasonal Chapstick flavors. These would also make a great end of year teacher gift! Find them at ShopChapstick.com.
If there’s one thing I love more than organization, it’s hidden organization. FHE’s Striped Ottoman allows you to store anything you want inside and have a stylish, functional, piece of furniture. This is perfect for toy storage, or in an entry way to store shoes and accessories. It’s also perfect inside of a closet. I love having something to sit on to put on my work heels or lotion my legs. Inside, I keep out of season purses. This is a substantial piece of furniture that will help you organize your home, and keep it looking pretty at the same time! I love multi-taskers!
On The Move
MiiSTS pocket sprays are perfect for summer travel. They are slim and can fit in any pocket and are perfect for car travel, stroller pockets, or flights to your summer destination. The varieties are astounding and you’ll want one for all of your on the go needs. My favorites are hand sanitizer, sun block, and stain remover. I have tucked these into my glove box and diaper bag…as well as hiking backpack. These are perfect for your on the go lifestyle and summer adventures.
The Stuff of Family Life
You know you have a lot of stuff. You know you could get more organized and purge….but you don’t know how that is effecting your family, your relationships, and your life as a whole. The Stuff of Family Life discusses these difficult ideas and topics in a way that will allow you to reflect on your life (and your stuff), in a way that will help you make positive changes. The book is humorous and will take you through all the stages of life, and stuff, you’ll encounter. This is a great summer read!
