Fun Finds on Friday

We travel a lot during the summer months, and the first of our trips (down to Chicago for a bit) is coming up soon. So this week’s edition of Fun Finds is all about being on the go.

I love my camera. So very, very much. But it’s a bit of a monster, and definitely not suitable for stashing in a handbag. The camera on my iPhone has become my replacement point and shoot, and it works beautifully – especially via Instagram. But how much cooler would those vacation photos be with this sweet 3-in-1 lens set, with fisheye, macro, and wide angle lenses included?!

Whenever I travel, I’m always sure to pack a ton of sunglasses because I always know I’m going to lose or break at least one pair before my return. This adorable pair is only $9, and at that price I can justify throwing a few more in the suitcase.

A pair of shorts I can dress up or down saves me space in my bag – which means I have more room to pack another pair of shoes. You know I like that. Plus, this pair is a mere $16.99, which means I can afford to buy another pair of shoes. And you know I LOVE that.

This dress has an easy breezy vacation feel to it, no matter what your destination is. Bonus: it’ll hide the food baby I’m sure to acquire after a few rounds of deep dish pizza and other Chicago specialties.

  • When I was young, my mom always made our marinara from scratch. Truthfully, she made just about everything from scratch – and I just grew up thinking that was normal. I didn’t really realize that marinara was readily available in a jar until I was older. And so, I’ve always preferred the taste of the… [Continue Reading]

  • Life is catching up with me and I’m feelin it.  Running non-stop lately is taking it’s toll. I’m exhausted.

  • My poor husband. He’s truly concerned for his future with me. And my crazy memory loss. For instance, the other day we had a long conversation about a specific subject while on the phone.
