Taking Stock | 12

Making : an effort to wake up earlier, give myself time to enjoy mornings, and start the day less groggy/frazzled.
Cooking : pre-made frozen gourmet dinners from a local caterer (best idea ever). I buy a week’s worth of meals at a time, stock them in the freezer, and pop them in the oven after work. If you have a local service like this, ohmygosh, do it.
Drinking : lots of fruit smoothies, in lieu of the milkshakes I really want to drink all summer.
Reading : several books at once. A new ‘Weekend Reads‘ post coming soon!
Wanting : a weekend getaway with the mister.
Enjoying : the laid-back summer pace at work and home. It’s hot as the 7th layer of Hades, though.
Listening : to the ‘Mix Tape’ station on iTunes radio.
Liking : Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Pressed Powder. I usually hate wearing powder, but it’s a necessity in the Florida summer; unless you want your makeup to slide right off your face. This gives airbrushed invisible coverage over tinted moisturizers and BB/CC creams, and never looks dry or chalky.
Loving : sneaking out of the shop early a couple times each week. It’s tough to get a proper vacation when you own a business, so stealing a few hours here and there really helps recharge the batteries. I’m grateful for the ladies who run it as well as I do when I’m not there.
Bookmarking: The Teacher Diva. I love her style! And she’s totally inspired me to get back on my blogging game.
Watching : The Killing on Netflix. It’s hard to find a show that my husband will willingly binge-watch with me, but we’re both really into it!
Needing : not a thing; life is pretty lovely right now.
Smelling : my summer favorite, Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse multi-use dry oil. (It’s available at Target now!)
Wearing : Butter London Patent Shine nail lacquer in ‘Shop Girl’.
Thinking : about plans for our new flower shop location. We’re moving! To my dream space; I can’t wait to tell you all about it.
Feeling : really excited about the next several months!

I'm a small town lady from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, beauty counters and unfussy style. I spend my days running my flower shop, and my nights blogging about what I love and what I wear. (Or watching Netflix and drinking wine.)
