Here’s a look at what I’m currently into. Happy Summer!
The Cutest Town in Every State. Love me a cute little town, and this Pure Wow list curates it for you.
Podcasts: The Empowered People Podcast: Life Behind the Earrings and Finding Your Momtra: Big Heart, Little Momma
This isn’t a podcast I listen to regularly, but I had to check out this two-part interview with Kilee and Soren Nickels of the brand Nickel & Suede. I’ve mentioned before I just love following Kilee and her blog, One Little Momma, and I have so for years. Kilee is such a NORMAL blogger. She has five boys (that makes me tired just thinking about it) and turned her hobby of making earrings into a full-blown Inc. 500 company. Loved hearing this story. Listen here for part 1. Kilee on her own was also just interviewed on the Finding Your Momtra podcast.
How Sweet Eats: Summer Fridays Playlist
One of my other favorite bloggers Jessica of How Sweet Eats is back with her popular series, Summer Fridays. As she puts it, is there anything better than a Friday in the summer? Here she shares what she’s eating/drinking/reading/doing to celebrate these sacred days, and I love the playlists she posts to accompany this spirit.
All the cute summer things! I have two weddings in June and got the cutest dresses from VICI, a new-to-me brand that worked out well (hot pink one below) and ASOS, a trusted brand I buy for weddings (and they have petites, which is clutch for me since I’m only 4’11).
I also attempted Amazon Fashion for the first time and was pleasantly surprised with this super cute black romper (that you can dress up or down – I’ll be LIVING in this thing all summer), these turquoise earrings that I added to my hot pink dress above, and the very trendy pearl clips.
I had a wedding in Lewisburg, West Virginia this weekend so while we were in town, we checked out the Greenbrier on Saturday afternoon. I had never been, so it was cool to see this historical site and unique, amazing decor. I kept Instagram storying all the patterns I saw around every corner. My mom recommended the Bunker Tour too, which was a Cold War fallout shelter. We didn’t have time for that, but we did check out the salon for a blowout. Priorities.
My FAVORITE Greek Festival returns this month at Dormition of the Theotokos Church in Oakmont. I’ve been counting down the days until I can have a gyro and honey balls. This is the best Greek fest in the ‘burgh, in my opinion!
What else should I check out this month?
