Loving Lately

A few things I’ve been diggin’ recently…

 Exhibit 1: Michelob Ultra Light Cider.This beer is unbelievably light, crisp and delicious. Oh, and it is 120 calories per bottle. Exhibit 2: My up-do from Lindsey’s wedding. I am pretty sure this is my favorite “messy bun” thus far from the weddings I’ve been in this summer.

Exhibit 3: I am really happy to finish this series so I can move on to a better one. Next up, Hunger Games, unless you have a better suggestion…Exhibit 4: My newest OPI nail color, “Samoan Sand”

Exhibit 5: My new monogrammed cooler tote from Monkey See Boutique! I plan to get a lot of use out of this all summer! 

What are you loving lately?

    Hunger Games is great reading! They go fast…then- if you're anything like me- you'll be sad they're over and (warning) will be disappointed with other reading selections for a while! Love your new cooler- adorable!

    Did you not like 50 shades trilogy? I've been debating on whether to read those or not. I've hear many mixed reviews!I have to say, that your messy bun up-do was beautiful and perfect for a summer wedding!Happy Wednesday my friend!

    The Hunger Games was really good. I'm still on the fence about 50 Shades though. I love your cooler, it's so cute and handy!

    ahhhh I'm loving all of those things! That nail polish color is perfect, and that tote is so cute. I read all three fifty shades books and will be curious to hear your thoughts after! I've also been wanting to try that Michelob Cider!

    Just finished the first book of the Fifty Shades series. Like so many others – still on the fence about that series. I don't think I'll read the rest. Definitely recommend Hunger Games. That's such a great series. I couldn't put it down!

    LOVE THAT TOTE. I think I died and went to heaven. I havent been able to find the hard cider anywhere around where I live! I've heard great things and it's gluten free. But 120 calories a bottle might convince me to cross state lines in my search 😉

    Have to say when it comes to drinks… I like them sweet and girly!!! However, I love the packaging and feminine look of this beer! Gonna have to try it 🙂

    I felt the same about 50 Shades, and I really liked Hunger Games so I hope you do too! I haven't tried that Hard Cider yet, but I must since everyone is raving about it! Love that monogrammed bag – so cute!!

    The Hunger Games are great. I also just reread all the Harry Potters for the first time since they came out and loved them all over again. Love your messy bun, that is perfect!

    I started reading the first 50 Shades book, and hated it, and then got into it, and then started hating it again.So I picked up The Hunger Games and WHIPPED through the first one, now I'm in the middle of the second one. (I started them three days ago.) I resented the fact that I had to go back and finish the first 50 Shades after reading such a fantastic book, but I did. I won't read anymore of them.

    So in terms of book recommendations, I would highly suggest The Paris Wife. I just finished it last week and it was amazing!
