flamingo Hello sunshine tumbler


I was so excited to break out these flamingo drink floats this past holiday weekend. I mean come on how can you not love having a little pink flamingo holding your drink while you float around in a lake or pool?!

I bought them last summer and they come 12 in a pack, perfect for your summer soiree 🙂 They are really easy to blow up too!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Popsicles

I’m a huge fan of chocolate and peanut butter anything, I also happen to enjoy greek yogurt so this recipe was a match made in heaven. I have been meaning to try it for awhile since it’s been on my Pinterest board for some time, I figured the first week in June was a good time to break out the popsicle molds!




Growing Cilantro & Tomatoes

I wanted to start growing something and since I didn’t want to jump into gardening full force I figured starting off with an herb and a small vegetable plant would be sufficient in satisfying my new found green thumb. Its a favorite this week because I haven’t killed them but I’ll have to update at another time when they are fruitful. I know I have to switch them to planters which I’m hoping to do this weekend. Any other tips would be welcomed!



Jojo’s Outfits

Ok if I’m honest I was so excited to watch Jojo as the Bachelorette because 1) she’s awesome and 2) I love everything she wore on Ben’s season so I figured her outfits would be even better on her own season. #majorgirlcrush. I haven’t been disappointed yet and I’ve already considered buying multiple things she’s worn. I bought these earrings from last season because she looked fabulous! I wore them for my birthday this year 🙂 This look (sorry quick snapchat blurry photo) was a favorite this week! It made me want to buy her Elisa Drusy necklace even though I already have a Elisa necklace #yougotmeABC



Cheap Island Hoping Guide-Refinery29

I loved the tips in this article about how to get to around a few places on your bucket list for cheap. I’m always planning my next trips and some of these slides awakened my island travel bug 🙂



I hope you enjoy your weekend friends! I know I will be dancing until I no longer feel my legs tonight! #GoBey #Lemonade


Also linking up with April & Katie & Jennie!

    Those flamingo drink floats are so stinkin’ cute! I want them and I don’t even have a pool or anywhere to use them! (The tub?? that’s my best option! SAD.) And I loved Jojo and her fashion sense when she was on The Bachelor too! I haven’t really been following The Bachelorette, but I’m glad to see that her style is still fab. Hope you have a great weekend!

      Hi Jess, I think you can totally rock the flamingo cup holders anywhere, even sitting in your backyard, they give a sense of water nearby haha. I think I’m going to follow the Jojo only for her outfits this season because the men she has to choose from aren’t that great in my opinion, at least not yet. Thank you for stopping by 🙂
