July 31, 2016

It's hard to believe that when I start writing the next post in this series, I will have been in school for nearly a month.  Summer flew by--no, it practically hurtled by.  It's sad to see the bright colors of summer change to the faded hues of fall, but you know the old saying:  "A life that goes on changing goes on living."

I, for once in my life, am somewhat looking forward to the changes that this year should bring, but while summer is still lingering behind, I'll take the opportunity to share a few favorite things of mine from the month of July.

Prep For A Day

1. Calligraphy:  It's no secret that I've always loved calligraphy, but until I purchased a calligraphy pen of my own, I only knew that I loved looking at it.  Now I'm absolutely positive that I love crafting the letters and learning about different fonts as well;  to make a long story short, if you want to pursue an activity that will allow you to embrace your creativity, give calligraphy a try (this book is a good place to start)!

2. My Clarisonic:  If you've never heard of these skincare facial brushes, you need to peruse them.  They are extremely helpful tools--my pores have never felt cleaner.  The brush heads can also be swapped out in order to cater to different skin types, which is a wonderful option for remedying acne and other skin problems.

3. Dainty Necklaces:  Whether you're petite (like yours truly) or you're just following one of this year's more subtle jewelry trends, dainty necklaces and chains are lovely staple pieces.  A pendant like this one could be worn with practically any outfit, practically throughout the entire year.

4. Wedges:  Everyone has seen a pair of these espadrille wedges around this summer, and in an uncharacteristic moment, I decided to pop into an Old Navy and try some on.  Lo and behold, I found a pair of wedges that I like--and that I think you would like, too! They are definitely "the shoe" of the summer, and they might even transition into autumn if we're lucky.

Summer may be coming to an end, but who knows what else the year has in store for us?

Any faves from this month that you'd like to share?
