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!

  • On the Eve of Thanksgiving this year, I’m feeling lots of love and gratitude toward my family, friends and you {Wild Ruffle Readers}! My life has been crazy chaos lately.  Starting way back last summer, this fall, and even up through last weekend. I’ve been running like my head’s cut off. Which you have so graciously read… [Continue Reading]

    Feeling Thankful
  • My husband recently surprised me by saying he had purchased tickets to a Garth Brooks concert. Not growing up a country music fan, I wondered if I would know any of the songs, and whether I’d really enjoy myself at the show. I gotta say – I truly did have fun. Though I didn’t necessarily… [Continue Reading]

    Wisdom From Garth
  • I am generally a fairly happy go lucky kind of girl. I don’t worry about much, and I have a tendency to think that everything will turn out ok in the end. But opening a storefront… it’s a lot of work. It’s pretty darn stressful. I knew it would be. And I readily signed up… [Continue Reading]

    Be Of Good Cheer
  • Lordy Lordy guess who’s…. just kidding. I’m not going to be that dorky! But you get the hint. I’m turning 40 tomorrow!  AAhhh! I don’t mind turning 40. I just don’t like the wrinkles, moodiness and body changes that comes with it. *sigh In honor of my 40th birthday I’m letting you in on 40 random… [Continue Reading]

    Wild about 40 Things
  • This Thanksgiving is a big one for both of the Wild Ruffle girls, as we’ll each be hosting in our homes for the first time! Though Tammy has hosted before, she just moved into her new home (yay!), and will be having her whole crew over there on the big day. And though in previous… [Continue Reading]
