Movie: Spiderman Far from Home
This movie was sooooo good! I have always loved the Marvel movies, but even if that’s not your thing, you will still be able to enjoy this movie. It has a great cast and an unpredictable plot which is always a lovely surprise! Tom Holland is such a cutie! He def has that “boy next door” charm which is so sweet! And Jake Gyllenhaal, my goodness, it’s been a hot second since I’ve seen him in a movie but he did not disapoint! Wasn’t the biggest fan of Zendaya’s performance in this one, was kind of expecting some more action/talking from her. But I know they’re just character building her for the coming movies which makes me excited to see where this movie series goes!
Spending time on our patio…
Even though it’s been H-O-T, HOT here lately, evenings or early mornings on our patio have become one of our favorite things. Whether that’s eating our dinner out there or just a fun chat. There, Marcus and I, just talk, listen to nature or tend to the plants out there. My family also came into town one weekend and it was just so refreshing to start off our morning out there and drink out coffee. If you have an outdoor space of any kinds, big or small, I highly recommend taking some time to spend out there.
Linked a few things in the post about our patio that we enjoy the most, like our mini table fire pit! Such a great purchase that we can use year round!
Loose Face Powder: Recently I’ve noticed that by the late afternoon my face feels so oily! I’ve never been one to have oily or dry skin, I haven’t changed anything in my makeup or skin care routine so I was so lost as to what to do! I was sharing with a friend my frustrations when she shared with me her trick to fighting this “mid-afternoon shine”. This Airspun Loose Face Powder has been doing the trick, a touch of this over your finished make up and you’re good to go! It’s translucent and provides a very light shimmer to keep your face fresh throughout the day. I’m assuming the oily-ness is coming from the change in weather maybe? Starring at a screen 90% of the day? Or just life (age) itself? Who knows! But what I do know is that this wonder works!

Ruby + Cash Pouches: These were just a fun little find while I was in the beauty aisle! I heard that they are a limited time collection so grab them while you can! Each pouch has a fun phrase or cute design and only $5! Would make for great group gifts, travel pouches or anything really!
Shows: Big Little Lies
Wow you guys! This second season was AMAZING! So many twists and turns but it was still so good! Meryl Streep added such drama to the season, her performance is pound to get her Emmy nominations in the next year. I still want to read the book that this series is based off of, but for now I’ll just keep rewatching! Uncertain on a Season 3 or if they will just end it here, either way would work out fine in the long run!
Along with this fabulous series, comes FABULOUS merch! My fav pop-culture merch shop, Totally Good Time, created the best sweatshirt that is much adored by all!
Essential Oils: Mosquito Bites and Headaches
Essential Oils have become my new best friend because of mosquito bites and headaches! Earlier in the month mosquitos seemed to want nothing more than me. I shared my struggles with y’all on my stories and asked for any kinds of advice on how to treat them! I’ve always been one to get bit, but never had I gotten that many bites at once/around the same time. My bites would swell and itch for days! Thankfully you guys gave me the best feedback and I found a new love for essential oils!
I know I’m a little tardy to this party, honestly I never thought that they could really work! But tea tree oil on my bites was the best cure I could get! Since then I started using peppermint oil for my headaches and that has been so relaxing and helpful!
Honestly not sure why I hadn’t tried these before, I actually grew up using this spray that is in short, a eucalyptus spray. My mom would spray it on our pillows at night if we were ever sick or had a stuffy nose. Or just use it when you wanted a good nights sleep because it’s so soothing!

The Dior Exhibit
Ahhhh, Dior! If you love fashion, museums or just a good stroll amongst couture, this exhibit is for you! Had such a lovely time at this exhibit displayed currently at the Dallas Museum of Modern Art. It was absolutely breathtaking. Sketches, swatch books, exclusive photographs and gown galore, this show is not to be topped. I left so inspired just about fashion alone, it was truly amazing!
Get your tickets HERE, the exhibit will only be here until September 1st so hurry hurry!
