Any teachers out there counting down the days? Agh! I imagine there are several 😉 . Three more Fridays until summer break starts for us, so this mama is extra pumped.
I hope you had a wonderful week and that sunny skies and warm weather awaits you this weekend. We have soccer, baseball and swimming in our future.
Well, you know how much I love me some graphic tees in the summer. These Amazon finds have me extra ready for summer! I still have some tees from last year that I love, but then I added a few new ones for this year too!
Ocean Air & Salty Hair. Yes, please!
Sunshine vibes on repeat over here.
Bring on the sunshine! Frenchie is ready 😉 .
Sunshine, sunshine, sunshine, repeat!
For you baseball mamas!
And for the summer holidays…
…love :)! This tank is HERE.
Oh friends, I’ve been so excited to share this next Fave with you!
Ready, set, light…
…I mean, I really love them. I knew I would like them because I’ve known Jen Reed a long time and everything she does is amazing, but I didn’t know I would LOVE her Living in Lilac candle company. In fact, last Friday at lunch, several of my friends and I were discussing them because it’s not just me…many of my friends have purchased them and really truly LOVE them.
Here’s the deal…you know I’m a candle snob. I burn at least two candles non-stop in my house every single day. I legit light them both at 4:30 AM and blow them out at 10:00 PM. I swear by like two different companies and that’s about all I use…so when her candles arrived, I would be lying if I didn’t admit to be a little nervous because I do consider myself a candle connoisseur and well, I have high standards. BUT…OH MY WORD, THESE CANDLES ARE DIVINE!
Not only are they gorgeous just in the jar, but they smell amazing, have staying power and now, I will be purchasing them on repeat to add to my candle collection. I love the color of the jar (a muted lilac with just a touch of gray), I love that they burn for a long time (around 60 hours!), I love that they’re made without any chemical amplifiers and come from an all-natural soy so they’re clean and burn beautifully (never smoky). I know you’ve heard a lot of people shout from the rooftops about how awesome they are…and it’s because it’s all true 🙂 .
Isn’t the jar gorgeous?! This Always Welcome scent has been burning in our family room. In fact, I did a story the other day and someone sent me a DM because they noticed it burning in the background. She said “doesn’t it make your entire house smell lovely” and I was like “YES!!”. This particular scent is white spice and sueded cedar so it’s just subtle and pleasant in the background.
I had Wonderful & Worthy burning in the powder bath last week and someone came to the door to drop something off. The first question she asked me was what candle I had burning because my entryway smelled so nice 🙂 . You see?! They really make any space smell nice without being overpowering.
Each candle is packaged so beautifully that it would make a wonderful gift for any occasion (hostess gift, birthday gift, thank you gift…any gift).
I always keep a diffuser in my closet (because I don’t want to burn a candle in there), and her diffuser has made that space smell so fabulous too! If you’re a diffuser person, these are for you!
I am so pleased with these candles and will continue to purchase them as I need more. Right now, her team let me know that they have a BUY MORE, SAVE MORE promo going on if you shop in their app! You have to purchase in the app to get the savings, but it is totally worth it. Check out the savings below:

Have the best weekend, friends! My heart always feels bittersweet on Mother’s Day weekend. I know many of you have lost your mom or lost your child. I know many of you are desperately trying to become mothers. I know that it can be joyous day for many but a really hard day for other. I just want you to know that this morning, I’m specifically praying for this community and any of you who might be hurting this weekend. God bless you all. xx
