Instagram Giveaway!

Friday, June 17, 2022

For our annual beach vacation in West Palm, I picked up a couple of new things from Marley Lilly and they are too good not to share!

Cooler Bag

This is the ideal cooler bag for the pool. If we are going to be out on the beach all day, we'd take our insulated cooler - but this is great for just a few hours and keeps our drinks sufficiently cool. It holds so much! We had no problem packing up drinks for our whole group in this thing.

Special shout out to my Cat and Jack sandals! PSA Size 7 women's is a little girls size 5. This is not my first pair of little girl's shoes. 😂

Market Tote

I'm not sure if this bag was designed as a beach bag, but it works really well as one! It's wide and perfect to throw in all your essentials. But, I can also use this for so many different purposes! It folds down flat, so I think I'd like to keep one in the car for all the miscellaneous reasons you need a tote for on the go.

Leopard Pajama Shorts and Monogrammed Top

GOSH, are these cute!! These pajamas couldn't be more comfy. I'd wear them every night if I could. Definitely keeping this in my back pocket for a gift idea in the future!

Listening To | Office Ladies Podcast
Ok, I've just been eating this up! Recently, I saw Jenna Fisher and Angela Kinsey promoting their new book, and they mentioned they've been doing a podcast about The Office. I must have been living under a rock, but I've just been devouring each episode! Obviously, I love The Office, but it's also really fun to listen to them as such good friends.

Excited About | Etsy Giveaway!
You guys, I'm nearing 1,000 sales on Etsy and gearing up for a fun giveaway on Instagram to celebrate! Make sure you are following over on Insta to enter! I'm super excited about this giveaway, and it's the first one I've done for my Etsy shop. Overdue probably.

Using | Non Toxic Whitening Strips
Super excited to find these teeth whitening strips. They are certified non toxic! Plus, super great for sensitive teeth. I haven't finished my box yet, but they definitely make a difference.

Trying | Daily Harvest
I almost did a whole dedicated post to Daily Harvest, but I don't think I have enough to say about it! Basically, I wanted some quick healthy options to have on hand. Here's my thoughts so far:
- I really like the flatbreads!
- The grain bowls are pretty good, but highly recommend putting them in a skillet rather than the microwave.
- The smoothies are yummy, but also high calorie (at least the flavors that looked good to us.)
- The oat bowls are also good!
Over all, none of it has blown me away, but it's a nice option! Here's a referral code for $40 off your first order, plus if you activate Rakuten you get several dollars back! I would really like to try their almond milk and the ice cream.

Doing | Organizing!
We were supposed to have some extra company this past weekend, but they got sick and couldn't come. But, before I knew that I started trying to get the house spic and span for guests! Instead of cleaning the bathrooms and stocking the fridge like a normal person, I decided it was a great time to do some decluttering and organizing. The pressure was on, and I am actually thrilled I tackled a few projects! One of which was our upstairs hall closet. It's a really random assortment of stuff in general, but it was getting out of hand. After it was all said and done, my decluttering led to at least 6 bags for donation! 

So even though, I'm sad our company didn't work out, I am happy the house is clean!
