Summer Reading/ Favorite Things


Hello, dear friends.  Thank you all for the lovely comments, notes, texts, cards, FB messages and calls after the passing of my dear old Dad.  I can't tell you how much it has touched my heart as well as given me tremendous comfort.

This is my last post of the Summer.  I will be back God willing with bells on September 1st with my sidekick, Miss Daisy recalling our vacation adventures.

The coming days will be filled with:


Purging





Scolding




Cruising

and



Bodybuilding!

OK, you got me.
I told you 3 truths and a lie.
No way am I going to spend my Summer purging!


In the meantime, here is the rundown on my latest reads, Summer reading list, and my favorite Summer products. I would also love to hear about your faves, as well.  









I am looking forward to a Luncheon where this author will be featured.  This was an entertaining read.
I also wish I looked this good from the back.





One word: riveting.






I listen to a lot of K.L. Slater's books on my walks.
They move quickly and never let me down.








A great thriller with lots of twists and turns.






I chose this one through Kindle First.
I love getting free stuff, especially when it's good!!!





This is the story of two female doctors who are best friends.
I suggest reading it as opposed to listening to it.  I was not crazy about one of the narrators.  



Amazon


Another good thriller.

Interesting topic but at times I felt that the author was more concerned with putting a pretty sentence together than telling the story.



Amazon


Don't quit your day job, Jake.
Others disagree - many good reviews on this one.






  For some reason, I couldn't get into this one.






These are some of my favorite books that I have read over the years.





Amazon

The best thriller that I've read this year.






Amazon

You may not want to read this if small planes are on your Summer itinerary.



Amazon

Pure escapism.




Amazon

Loved the entire series.

Amazon

If you love Southern Lit, this one is for you.



Amazon

Her first and her best.



Amazon

I read this book when it came out years ago, and it has stuck with me.

First up on my list, is this love story that was given to me by one of my favorite bloggers, Sandy from You May Be Wandering.  Sandy also happens to be our trusted travel agent.  She planned our last fabulous Summer vacation and has also put together every detail of our upcoming adventure.

  I have recommended Sandy to many friends, and all have been delighted with her stellar planning, sweet personality, and attention to detail.

I hope this one is as good as Something Blue which was my favorite of Giffen's.

Definitely not my life story.

Here are several of my Summertime favorite things.  The Mister even added a couple of his.


Full disclosure:  I could start my own chem lab with the number of concoctions I own to help me appear to have a natural tan.


Amazon

If I don't plan on being in the sun, I use this hydrating self-tanner.



Amazon

My best buddy for all those miracle creams.
Works like a charm.





I use this CC cream as my foundation as well as a sunscreen.
It is very creamy and camouflages all my skin imperfections. 
Not that I have any...




Walgreens

This is one of the few self-tanners that also contain sunscreen.  I bought a couple of tubes for our upcoming cruise.


Target

I use these wipes when I need a quick fix and don't have much time.



Target

This is on my shopping list for Target.  
The girls at Skimm'd raved about this clear, heavenly-smelling sunscreen.





Ulta

I bought this bronzer/highlighter about a month ago, and I'm very pleased with it.   




Nordstrom

My #1 gave me this eyelash primer for my birthday.  I love it.  It definitely maximizes the lashes - they look longer and fuller.
I only use it for special occasions because I don't want to be too much of a distraction to the unsuspecting victims men I come across during my daily routine.

Sephora

I just started using this de-frizz spray.
It needs to be applied on dried hair, and it does the trick on mine.



Amazon

My favorite go-to year round all over moisturizer never lets me down.




Amazon

My man with his favorite watering device.

Amazon

And his favorite hose.



Amazon

As I mentioned several times, I am totally paranoid when it comes to ticks and disease-carrying mosquitoes.  I have been using these YaYa products for a couple of years and they not only have a pleasing aroma, but they are fabulous bug deterrents.





Tuckernuck



 
Tuckernuck

I am now the proud owner of all of the large scarves in Tuckernuck's inventory.  They are such a great fashion accessory.




Tuckernuck

They also have cute dresses.




Nordstrom

I can't say enough about my favorite comfy Summer shoes.
I've got them in every color.






Last, but certainly not least, my # 2 told me about this free app.  
Now, when I am stuck in a never-ending line or a crowded waiting room, I take a deep breath, open my d365,  read my devotional, and in minutes I feel better.


Although I won't be posting for the next couple of months, I will be checking in on Instagram.

Don't leave me hangin'...
I want to hear about all of your favorites.

Enjoy your Summer and stay safe.

Until next time...





See you in September!
