fun shopping finds

Fun Shopping Finds:

  • I bought this cute summer dress in black!
  • I tried on this cute top in brilliant kelly green at the store. I didn’t buy it, but I can’t stop thinking about it!
  • I needed a travel windbreaker for a trip I was recently on when there was a threat of rain. I picked up this one, and it’s perfect. Super lightweight and good for summer (cheap).
  • Floral cropped pants for summer? These are cute. This top would be super cute paired with the pants!
  • For a summery linen shirt, this one has an excellent price.
  • This would be awfully pretty with jeans or white pants in the summertime.
  • Cute shorts for summer! And here’s a top that would look darling with them!
  • I love these linen-blend pants.

What I’m watching and reading:

  • I binge-watched The Night Agent on a recent flight. It was good! I love that it was action-packed. The main actor and story reminded me of Matt Damon and his Bourne movies.
  • I’ve just placed Viola Davis’ memoir Finding Me on my Libby wait list. I’m so excited to listen to this one because it has been recommended by so many people. There’s a bit of a wait to get it though. I’m trying to be patient!

Must Make Recipes

Fun Recipes I’ve spotted on the internet this week:

personal updates

Here’s what’s going on in my life:

  • We just spent a week in Southern California on vacation. Since we lived there for 29 years before moving to Nevada and then Arizona, we have a ton of friends to visit with and family too. We stayed in Del Mar at the beach. I loved the cool mornings and the relaxing vibe. I don’t love San Diego traffic (it has gotten exponentially bad since we left 10 years ago), but it’s a nice place to visit for sure.

Products I'm Loving

Products I’m loving:

  • My cancer medication is causing me to have some pretty severe hot flashes. The doctor is trying to manage it with me, but it’s a long process to figure out what will help. A friend of mine swears by this Embr Wave Thermal Wristband for hot flashes. It’s a bracelet that goes on your wrist, and it emits a cooling sensation on your wrist. I decided to try it. It’s expensive, so I was happy to see that it can be returned if it doesn’t work. I’m wearing it sometimes during the day, but I always wear it at night. Honestly, it has been a game-changer for sleep. If I wake up and have a hot flash, I calmly press the button a few times on the device and let it cool me down. It’s strange, but it seems to be working for me.
  • Along the same lines, I bought this hand-free neck fan. Also a game changer! I’ve been using it while working at my desk.
  • Also, this is a nice desk fan. I will probably be using it on my nightstand to cool me off at night, if needed.
  • You know how sometimes you need a clear bag to enter stadiums, etc? I found a good, cheap one! It comes in many handle colors, and it’s the standard size that stadiums accept for clear bags.
  • Here’s a mini umbrella that is perfect for traveling, and it comes in a lot of different colors.
  • Look for marinated salmon fillets at Whole Foods. They often a variety of flavors, but my favorite is the Everything Bagel Seasoning topped salmon.
  • Look for seedless watermelon in your market. The watermelons are beginning to arrive, and they’re wonderful!
