July – Things I’m Loving

Is it just me, or did July come and go in a flash? Here are some of my favorite things from this past month.

Wall Decals

For Finley’s new bedroom redo, I used these daisy wall decals and they were SO easy to use and came at a great price point. You can check out her Etsy shop to choose other shapes, she makes tons of fun ones!

Splash Pad

This is actually advertised as a dog splash pad but I guess that just makes it extra durable haha. The middle fills with like an inch of water and the spray goes up around the sides, very strong, and holds up great!

Amazon Essential Fleece for toddlers

Such a good kid’s fleece to grab for the upcoming Fall. These are super nice quality, warm and fuzzy, and we always get compliments on them. They wear and wash better than the North Face and Patagonia ones we’ve owned!

Burley Bike Trailer

We finally bit the bullet and got a Burley bike trailer for the kids and LOVE it. Super easy to clip on/off and the roll bar flips up to a handle to make it a stroller. Room to store stuff in the back and can easily transition into just a plain trailer so when the kids are older we can use it to lug beach stuff.

Toniebox Audio Player

We’ve had this Toniebox since Christmas but have been using it a lot lately. We took it out for our trip to Maine and now use it a ton. I put on a Tonie when I’m getting the kids ready for bed or at mealtime. Our favorite Tonies are Gruffalo and Llama Llama.

Cream Blushes

I’ve been OBSESSED with cream blushes lately. The Ilia Multi Stick and the e.l.f. Putty Blushes are SO good. They look so much more glowy and natural than powder blush. I’m wearing the e.l.f. putty blush in the color Fiji in the photo above.

Dutch Oven

We got a Dutch Oven for Christmas and now that we have a kitchen again I use it ALL THE TIME for everything. I literally just keep it on the stove cause it looks so pretty. I cook soups, brown meats, make stews, bake chicken, it’s so versatile. I have the Lodge one.
