This & That Fridays – July 7

what’s going on with me…

Happy first weekend of July.  Seriously how is it July already?  Can we just pause Summer?

I was in Vegas last weekend and I already want to go back.  It was crazy hot (anywhere from 40-43 on any given day) but the heat is much more bearable when you have air conditioning and a pool to cool off in.

The Calgary Stampede begins this weekend – yeehaw!

have you seen/tried/heard?…

Summer = another season of Big Brother!  Not crazy about the cast this year though, especially Cody!

New beauty product launches for July – very intrigued by the Laura Mercier and Bare Minerals foundations!

Omg tater tot pie

recent purchases…

I finally got my hands on this ombre sweatshirt

I picked up Maggie a cooling mat similar to this one for the Summer but she’s not all that into it, even though we’re in the middle of a heat wave.  I wish they made human sized ones.

This dress from Banana Republic Factory Store is nice and light for hot Summer days

I used my $15 Sephora coupon to pick up a new Beauty Blender and a NARS Liquid Blush – review to follow!

currently coveting…

I’ve been eyeing this maxi dress for weeks now…

How pretty do these highlighters look?  Reasonably priced too!

Absolutely need this pineapple cup!

last read / currently reading

Valley of the Dolls

This is a classic novel that I’ve been meaning to read forever and I finally got around to it and finished it up last week.  I had no idea what this was about until I started reading it and I was hooked from the first chapter.  Even though it was written decades ago, I suspect it’s still quite accurate today.  Totally recommend giving it a try!

    Oooh I’ll have to add Valley of Dolls to my summer reading list. I read like a fiend out at the cottage so I love seeing other people’s suggestions.

    And I’m in total disbelief as well that it’s already July and never mind we are pretty much half way through it already. What the heck?! This year is just flying by!
