Happy Friday after this short week friends!

Summer feels like it’s in full swing and this is one of the busiest times for me. I celebrated my favorite holiday and now I’m venturing off on my annual family vacation to Newport, RI.

Follow along on my Instagram stories to see some of my favorite spots that I visit every year. I’m looking to add a few new ones this year 🙂

Also, I’ve found it so easy to keep up with all my favorite bloggers through bloglovin’ and would love for you to follow along with me so you don’t miss any posts! Just click the button below!


Let’s get to the favorites!

Fourth of July

Family. Food. Fun. Fireworks. I’m the happiest girl when it’s fourth of July weekend! It’s a life favorite. If you missed my photo recap, you can find it here.

New Favorite Cocktail

I’m a tequila person. I haven’t met a margarita I didn’t love. So I decided to experiment with a new drink of choice after testing a delicious juice at Trader Joe’s last Friday. It’s a strawberry-lime juice that surprislingly doesn’t have a lot of added sugar. I mixed it with some tequila and club soda, added a lime and now it’s my new favorite drink. In reality it’s probably a strawberry lime margarita lol.

Maeve Dress

I’ve been saving this dress for vacation and I’m excited to finally break it out! Top here! I wear the top and pants all the time, they are both so comfy.

New Favorite Workout

OK I’ve done this popsugar fitness video every day this week because I feel like it works. It’s only 20 mins too, which is sometimes all I can commit too. I’m really into Tabata workouts right now. Does anyone have any favorites they can share in the comments below?!

Breakfast To Try

I’m dying to make this smoothie bowl I just saw on The Everygirl (a favorite in and of itself) yesterday. I can’t wait to try it when I get back! Sweet and salty sounds delicious to me!


I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and I’ll still have a few posts here next week while I’m gone 🙂

    Oh that drink sounds right up my ally, I’m usually a wine or beer person, but been really into tequila lately. And here’s a link to one of my Tabata workouts, I love how fast the time goes when doing intervals.
