Fun Finds on Friday

Today’s edition of Fun Finds is brought to you by the oh-so-lovely Susan of Ava Grace’s Closet. As soon as I discovered her blog last year I knew I had found a kindred spirit. Though we’ve never met in person, I just know we’d have a great time sitting down over a glass of wine, chatting fashion, mom talk (she’s mommy to 2 girls and a boy too!), or whatever subject may arise. If only I lived in the Toronto area… Do yourself a favor and give her blog a click – you’ll be glad you checked it out!

“I met Cate early on in my blogging adventure via the weekly What.I.Wore.Wednesday link-up and liked her immediately.
Not only does she have great fashion sense, a shoe closet that I envy and an amazing jewelry line, but she’s also a mama to 3…just like me.
One of my favorite weekly reads is definitely her Fun Finds on Friday posts :: I always see something I l.o.v.e.
So excited to be taking it over today while Cate is on vacation!

In the spirit of summer getaways, I bring you these must-have’s and a few I really want to have’s:

 A pretty retro swimsuit in cherry red. This one is by Anthropologie and I just love the fact that you could play in the pool or ocean with the kids without worrying about showing just a little too much to anyone. Not to mention that you would look incredible strolling down the beach with a pair of cat-eye sunglasses on. 

Anyone else have hair that does not do well in heat and humidity? Then this is a MUST TRY. Bumble and Bumble’s surf spray is saltwater based and gives you “beachy hair” without the beach. Available at Sephora.

Carry all your beachy goodness in this colorful chevron tote. Big enough to hold everything you need and anything any of your 3 kids or husband or boyfriend might ask for. A good thing.
Even better when it’s handmade via Ooh Baby Designs on Etsy. 

Capture all the fun moments retro-style with this Vintage Polaroid 600 Camera Kit. How fun is this? Bonus points for getting prints instantaneously. Available at Urban Outfitters.
I love turquoise all the time but especially in the summer months. And even more when paired with crisp white. This pretty starfish ring will always remind you of the beach. You can find this one by Kenneth Jay Lane at Saks

Hope your travels take you to the beach, any beach, this summer!
Happy Friday.”
A big thanks to Susan for helping me out whilst I travel! Be sure to visit her at her blog, via Facebook, or on Twitter. Have a happy weekend everyone!

  • These days, I’m all about dressing for comfort. So it’s nothing but layers for me. Leggings, a tank dress, sweater on top – it’s a cozy as pajamas (and a little more professional when working in the shop). Even my shoe height is getting a little lower – only 2.5 inches on these babies, cuz… [Continue Reading]

  • I recently went to a soup cook off, and knew I needed a killer recipe to make. I’m a wee bit competitive, so you know I’m going to bring my A game if there’s a prize on the line. Since I had just made my souper tasty (see what I did there? tee hee) white… [Continue Reading]

  • Our new neighbor, Bob, has the best photography backdrop. It’s old. It’s real. It’s alive with business. It’s down right cool. Now Bob and his sons might think we are complete nutso but we don’t care. Because when you can open up your side door, step into another world and snaps some amazing pics… you just… [Continue Reading]

    Our New Neighbor
  • Right now it’s the season for making merry, and that includes all the fun treats to be had, right? Macy’s was so kind, and sent over a box full of fun. My kids got right to work, baking up some goodies in cute little shapes. A Mason jar packed with all you need to jump… [Continue Reading]
