Hurricane PreP

This weekend has been a total mix of hurry up, panic, prepare, and…wait, as we count down the hours until Hurricane Dorian makes landfall or passes. It’s such an eerie feeling, even for a life-long Florida resident, of not really knowing what to expect, but also knowing exactly what to expect. 

But as of now we feel as prepared as we can be! In the meantime, we’ll be over here reading books and binge-ing on Netflix till the power (fingers crossed it doesn’t) goes out! 

P.S. As we wait out the storm and pray it swings out into the Atlantic, our prayers are with those in its wake. I can’t stop thinking about our friends in the Bahamas as they endured an unthinkable category 5 storm force winds yesterday. Storms are terrifying, but the real work begins once the rain stops. If you are looking to find a way to help those in need in the Bahamas, here’s a great one!

American Royals, Book Club

I’ve got to be honest with you, I’m so jazzed about this month’s book club selection I can’t stand it. We’ve had so many great books this year… but I know you will L-O-V-E this one. It’s very Gossip Girl-esque, with a royal twist! Can’t wait for you to read along this month!

The Self Tanner You’ll Love

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was going to try this self tanner out and, guys, I did and it’s amazing. I’m very new to the self tanner world and am not looking to get “tan”, but I did want just a little teeny bit of color on my legs… and this did the trick! It’s gradual and not at all fake looking. Plus, it was subtle enough for me to just use it on my legs and feel confident! I can’t say enough great things!
