Links I'm Loving

It’s it just me or is anyone else a little in disbelief that 2018 is almost halfway over… Although, I have to say that I am a bit relieved that we are already in May – the winter and cold weather starts to wear on me once we hit mid-February and May is one of my favorite months. I know this might sound weird to some but I just love walking outside this time of year and breathing in the smell of fresh cut grass and having almost every day just feel perfect.

Lately I have been working on being more organized as far as planning goes. I go through periods where I am either super into planning and keeping up with everything I have done/need or very not into it at all. Right now I have a bit I need to check off my to-do list so I’m making the big effort to organized and plan everything out, but hey, good habits are always worth the effort. Now onto something a little more fun…
Nashville has the most unpredictable weather, so you have to be prepared for anything up until about the very end of May; at that point it’s just sunny and hot and officially sundress season. This past Saturday definitely called for a light sweater and oh my goodness, can I just say that the April Marin Normandy Fringe Sweater is my new favorite spring sweater. It is super comfortable, flattering, and I love the fringe detailing. If you don’t have one, you definitely need one!

When I was at Sephora last week {dangerous place, I know} I purchase the new-to-me Supergood SPF setting powder and it works amazingly well. I have such fair skin and if I am out in the sun for like 20 minutes without any sun protection I will just burn in no time flat. When I was at a baseball game over the weekend I put this product to the test and it works extremely well! It’s so easy to apply and re-apply, very light weight, and has a nice clean feeling to it. Definitely a summer handbag staple!

As you all know I absolutely love YouTube tutorials. In this one Carly learns how to decorate a cake with a gingham pattern. I haven’t tried it yet, but after watching this video I feel like I can 100% duplicate this cute red gingham cake.

In case you can’t tell I am kind of loving the gingham trend that is going on this summer season… J. Crew has some of the cutest sandals right now, and these sandals…I mean, how can you beat a navy and white combo, gingham, and a bow? In my opinion, that is hands down a winning combination.

I am such a huge royal watcher, especially when it comes to Queen Elizabeth. I don’t think there is anyone out there that could be more of a #girlboss than Queen Elizabeth; she’s just such a fascinating person who has seen and done so much in life.


  1. I’m a big royals watcher too. I can’t wait to watch the wedding! Watching Kate and Will was so fun, I even made scones.

  2. You know I hadn't even thought of that yet.. the year is almost half over.. really? Ugh
