Another week, another Snapchat shares, and this week has been full of Round Top antique shopping and taking care of Harriet. If your new here, Harriet is out Airedale and was gravely ill this past week and apparently poisoned. She was given the BEST care by our Vet and their staff and is recovering. She is still weak and not close to a hundred percent but she's alive and getting better and better every day. No, she did not get into anything in our home, we do not know what happened or how and honestly I've stopped trying to figure it out. I'm so happy she's ok and getting better I just don't care. Big picture is she's a great dog, I love her and she's going to be ok. Thank you for all the thoughts, prayers and kind comments they mean so much to all of us.
She's so cute, she could totally doggie model, right???????
LINEN PANTS AND CLOTHES
I wore these pants but in a natural color the other day and they were a hit. I purchased mine years ago and bought every color. I wear them a ton, they are linen, wide leg and easy to wear. NOT pricey at all, I think $60 and come in a great selection of colors and sizes. Yes they do require ironing, but they look fabulous with almost anything. You can find this pair and others on the site I am linking. I know nothing about this shop but they had the pants and you all wanted to know where to find them. I found them!
I wear them with the white top (see snap chat shares #1).
The brands of linen I personally have the best luck with are:
Match Point, Flax, Hearts Desire, CP Shades, Cut Loose, Betty Hadikusumo, Tina Givens and Magnolia Pearl
My best suggestion is to google those brands, tons of online shops pop up. Stay away from linen with patterns and crazy styles. Keep it basic and simple and they will work for you for a long time. It's easy to add flare and style to solid basic pieces with scarves, jewelry, shoes, handbags, etc..
WIPES FOR GROWN PEOPLE
My friend Monica introduced me to this wipes and all I can say is THANK YOU. Herban Essentials is a wipe that only has three ingredients and a scent selection for GROWN people. They do sell them at Target but only in packs of specific scents, I ordered mine on Amazon to get the package with the three different scents. There online shop is nice and offers more scents than the three I've shown ( lavender, peppermint and lemon). I didn't check there first, I should have and will reorder directly from them.
I am a slipper girl, I have worn out a pair of these and have purchased two more since for myself and many, many, many pairs as gifts. They are straw but surprisingly comfortable, I mean like really comfy. You can pick your ribbon, monogram color and style, etc... the shop owner is easy peasy and I have been more than happy with every purchase from her. Bonus, they are only $30 dollars.
My current bronzer love is by Physicians Formula ( drug store ) Butter Bronzer. It smells like a pina colada, FOR REAL it does. Under $15, applies like silk, not patchy or orange, it leaves a subtle bronze glow. I like it more than my Nars bronzer. I have been grabbing for this one every day since I bought it almost a month ago.
I'm using the L'Oreal Brow Stylist Definer. It's comparable to a high end brand I've used for a while and I like it better so I'm going to stick with it. It's about $8, easy to find (any drugstore), works like a dream.
I have purchased this bag so many times, because I am obsessed! I shared another similar one, but these are slightly different in construction (both well made), she offers a variety of sizes and colors and bonus she has an Etsy shop. I cut the ribbon off, I like a cleaner look on the bag. They are a plastic woven bag but sturdy, easy to clean if needed and hold a ton. A PERFECT summer tote and under $60. Plus your pool bag or beach bag won't look like every other mom at the club. She ships uber fast! I have a pink one on the way, I'll share when it arrives. I have given several friends this very bag and my mom. It makes a great gift for family or friends and a wonderful hostess gift ( which reminds me). Check her Etsy shop out, its a simple way to see the totes, the colors and sizes and order up one for yourself, summer is just around the corner ( I use mine all year).
Yes I need them to see, especially if i want to drive a car, watch television, walk! I do wear contacts and until November I only wore contacts and then my eyes became all old and dry. I tried different brands of contacts, drops, you name it I tired it and nothing really helped. I decide to give glasses a try for a while thinking maybe my eyes needed a contact break, I have worn them since middle school. I had this pair of reading glasses laying around ( yes, reading glasses...I'm 45) and I really liked them and thought I'd like them with my prescription in them. I went to WALMART where I purchased them from and asked in there optical department if they could take out the lenses and put my prescription in. They said sure! I went over by the Advil and such and bought a new pair for $14.00 and dropped them off at the optical department and for an additional $200 + dollars for the prescription lenses I had a pair of glasses in a week.
I could NOT find them on Walmart site, I purchased them in an actual store over by the pharmacy ( NOT IN THE OPTICAL DEPARTMENT). They are Foster Grant men's reading glasses. I found the exact pair I have here
Another week, another shares. I hope it helps you all find what you are looking for. If I forgot something leave a comment and I can add the information. Thanks for joining me here, Instagram and SnapChat.
