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.”

  • What’s a girl on a budget to do when she wants a pretty table but doesn’t want to spend a penny to make it special? 1) Dig in the cabinet for anything and everything that feels like fall. 2) Head outside and bring nature indoors. Last year’s table decor was more streamlined, but we went… [Continue Reading]

  • There are a million things I am dying to share with you all. But here’s the hard part – all of these million super fun amazing things… are still in final details stage.

  • One of Mahatma Gandhi’s most famous quotes is, “Be the good that you wish to see in the world.” Here at Wild Ruffle, it’s kind of our mantra.
