I hope you have had a wonderful week!

I've had a very busy week getting back into a regular work week with the blog. I created and photographed 2 new recipes (coming soon) plus this new post with some friends on adding coastal touches to your home.

This dress is totally out of my comfort zone. It's much bolder and brighter than I typically wear. It's such a fun dress, but I realize it's not for everyone. I've had it for several months now, and enjoy wearing it.

It is a loose fit, but easily belts.

I totally get Carla Rockmore vibes. If you haven't heard of her, she's a fun Instagram and TikTok follow. Her fashion style is fearless, and edgy with a classic feel.

This dress is from my favorite online boutique that I have frequently mentioned.

I ordered this top for fall from this last week. I ordered a medium.

Dress Fit Tip: I ordered a medium and love the size. It's a comfortable dress with a loose fit. The seams do help give shape. Could be belted.

Affordable Makeup Options

This liquid lipstick stays on!!!

The stylist also recommended this affordable brand. She used this exact color on Ashlyn.

The gloss that she likes to use is the color Moon #3 by Maybelline.

The only other item that she recommended having on hand was this powder for any shine in the color Natural.

Needless to say, I have ordered all of the above items in a few colors for me as well!

What I'm Reading

I love to read AND listen to books. If you are looking for a way to get more steps in with your walking…..listen to books! You will want to keep walking to listen. I also listen while doing chores around the house. I will use my earbuds while walking, While in the house I will use a Bluetooth speaker that I can carry around with me or our Alexa.

I read actual printed books as well as on Kindle. I prefer my Kindle, but it is nice to hold a real book occasionally.

I've had my Audible membership for a while, and LOVE it! It gives me one book credit per month.

Let me share with you how I read on Kindle and listen to books as well. Get yourself a library card!

Then add the LIBBY and HOOPLA apps to your phone.

I will typically check to see if a book is available there first before using my credit or buying. Using these 2 apps with your library card is FREE!!! I love FREE.

There may be a waitlist if it is a newer title or popular. That's ok. Sometimes the wait can be lengthy. If I'm not willing to wait, I will just purchase. If it is new or popular, you NEED to finish the book in the allowed checkout time. Sometimes you can renew, and sometimes you may have to get back in the queue. If that happens, when it is available again…..it will download where you left off.

Get in the habit of always carrying a book with you to get in a little extra time. That way if you are waiting at the doctor's office or to get your car serviced….you are prepared!

It was my goal to read more than 12 books last year, and I completed that task. Check out that list which has been updated with my thoughts on the books. Here is my list for 2024. This is the list of definites for the year. I have a goal of 36 books this year. I will sprinkle in lots of audiobooks as well.
