The Scoop // Vol. 2

Friday, August 7, 2015

Good morning, loves. I have a feeling this weekend is going to be full of non-stop coffee as I clean up around the blog and the ladypartment. I mean, I don't hate this idea since the Texas heat has been hitting the 100s hard lately. Plus, it's tax free weekend in Texas. A/C, online shopping, and organizing my life sounds like a fun-filled weekend to me. ;)

SHOP

+ Purchased this vegan leather tote in black/cognac last on my friend Kitty's recommendation and it is literally the perfect everyday tote. I'm obsessed with it!

+ I will be living in this ivory top for the rest of my life. Cannot wait to buy it in all of the other colors. I bought it during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but it's definitely worth the full price.

+ These super soft, extra-long tees are the ideal tops for transitioning your closet from summer to fall and pair perfectly with leggings! Not to mention - they won't break the bank. (Thank goodness!)

+ I don't do mornings. Now, that's a fact.

+ A lot of awesome sales happening as we head into tax-free weekend! Get an extra 50% off on J.Crew final sale with the code COOLSALE. Sale ends this Sunday, August 9th. Also, Victoria's Secret has swimsuits and workout clothes for up to 70% off.  Perfect timing to snag up some sports bras and yoga pants for fall!

SEE

+ This ad had me in tears...from laughing so hard.

+ I'm not gonna lie, I am a huuuuuge fan of I Am Cait. I've already cried during the first two episodes. #immahotmess

DO

+ Downtown Bryan is where it's at tonight for First Friday. Be sure to stop by BinarySpace for the Maker Fair. Also, there's always live music and someone giving away free stuff - definitely great for a low-budget date night!

+ The Harvest Festival is happening every weekend in August at Messina Hof. Finally will be checking this off my summer bucket list.

+ Check out Sno Monkey on Briarcrest in Bryan. This mobile sno-cone stand hits all the right flavors in looks and feel for summer!

READ

+ I really want to make a million of these aquarium plants for the new ladypartment and my office. So presh. 

+ Day drinking this weekend? This Pineapple Sangria recipe will impress all your friends and is perfect for the pool!

+ If you're thinking about beginning a blog, these tips I shared earlier this week will help you get started.

+ I am not really a politics person (I've never voted any in election), but all the chatter about Ben Carson after the debate last night peaked my interest. I might actually register to vote this year, friends.
