Links + What I’m Loving

This week’s Links + What I’m Loving is full of so much good stuff that I think you are going to love! I have compiled items from beauty, fashion, accessories, to home goods and must-have items in the summer. I have also shared the books I just downloaded and cannot wait to get to reading in-depth. I sometimes share a recipe, but since we have been “up in the air” here at the Hoyle house, not much cooking has been going on. It’s been salads and sandwiches for most of the month. Barry is starting to complain, so I will have a great recipe next week…hopefully, lol!

First up on the list are these cute Espadrille Mules from Target! These come in this pretty neutral, and a tan and olive suede. These are perfect for every day and can easily dress up a pair of jeans styled with a cute top and handbag. These will be a hot seller, so grab your size while you can. I ordered my regular size in these and they fit great. See the espadrille mule here.

Another Walmart Find is the Melrose Ave Vegan Leather Strappy Flat Sandal. These remind me of the Scoop sandals that were so popular. These come in 2 more color options and are in my cart right now! I ordered the black in these. See the sandal here.

Have you used the OPI Drip Dry drying drops? If you do your own nails or toes, this is a must-have! Apply to nails after applying NAIL POLISH as the final step of your manicure, wait to set 60 seconds. I also use the OPI ProStay Duo Pack, I can paint my nails and the polish won’t chip and it lasts for about 2 weeks.

I recently found the Lancome Lash Idôle Lash-Lifting & Volumizing Mascara and it is AMAZING! I don’t wear a lot of mascara around the house, but when I do – this mascara helps give me gorgeous lashes and really makes my eyes pop. See it here. You can also see the Before & After pics, the difference is huge!

Many of you have asked about self-tanners and I rarely use them, however, Raegan will use them. So I asked her and a few of my more mature friends which did they like best and by far, everyone liked St. Tropez the best and the second was Bondi Sands Liquid Gold. I know you have to make sure you exfoliate very well before applying a tanner because the tanner will grab to the older skin and darken in spots. I use the MicrodermaMitt (it’s wonderful!) before applying any tanner and I use this tanning mitt. The tanning mitt is one of Amazon’s Best Sellers and Most Loved!

If you have dry or flaky skin or just love a great exfoliator, I found this little jar of heaven called Flake Away at Target and we are loving it! This is good for any type of skin and although reviews say people have used it on their face, I have not. I use this pumpkin mask on my face but use the Flake Away on my body. Makes my legs feel so good! See the Flake Away here.

If you are like me, you may be sitting on a bleacher at night and on the weekends watching your grandkids play sports. One thing I have learned is to use a cooling towel for walks, working in the yard during the day, and baseball games! These are so handy and they work! The pack of 4 is only $14 and an Amazon Find! See it here.

I have a few home decor items in this post since we are renovating. These lavender faux flowers are simply gorgeous and an easy addition to any room to brighten it up. I found these at Target and it comes in the pot for only $20. I am going to add this to my new bathroom. Isn’t it cute? See it here.

These faux hydrangeas were an Amazon Find and will be going in the new glam bedroom when the kids move out next week. Yes…I said next week! Cross your fingers nothing happens between now and then, LOL! Back to the flowers…this set of 6 comes in multiple colors and is only $11. See the flowers here.

This bracelet combo is another favorite that I have just bought. I love it together and I love the option of stacking it with other bracelets I own. It’s only $26 for the entire set, see it here. This would look gorgeous with a cute white dress this summer or add a pop of color with white shorts and a black top, or even an all denim outfit.

I just ordered this blush camera bag crossbody from Amazon, along with the blush and blue guitar straps. This crossbody is one of the Best Sellers from Amazon, comes in multiple color options, and is only $21. See the crossbody here and the straps here.

If you love a comfortable dress, this V-Neck Shirt Dress from Target is spot on! I love the red, but I am drawn to the blue color also. This dress fits TTS (true to size) and comes in 5 more color options. Not a bad summer outfit for only $20! See the dress here, I am wearing a medium for reference.

My Reading Picks For The Week

I have been busy with the house here lately and have not been able to read my books like I normally do. I have just downloaded these to read now and a few more to read in May while we take a few days at the beach. I was looking for a love story but soon found myself leaning towards a true story. I am now starting on Spilled Milk. If you have KindleUnlimited it is a FREE download, get it here. Here is an excerpt from the book:

“Randis later would testify at a criminal trial against her father, who was sentenced to prison for his crimes. He was sentenced to up to 16 years in 2004. Her painful — and ultimately triumphant — story is recounted in Randis’ first novel, “Spilled Milk.” – Brown, Stacy. Interview with the Pocono Record Newspaper

The other book I just downloaded is by John Grisham, he is one of my favorite authors! the book is called A Time For Mercy, this is about a timid 16-year-old accused of murdering a local deputy and how an investigator digs into the case and the twists and turns start! See this book here.

Let me know what you think about the post girls! I hope you enjoyed all the things I have been shopping for and loving! Chase and I are taking Brooklyn to buy new clothes, she is growing like a weed! Then we are taking her out to eat, kind of making the day all about her. Did I tell you that Raegan will be turning 21 next Wednesday? I will be celebrating on the blog with you girls for this big day! Stay tuned! I have a lot planned for Wednesday’s post!! Stay safe and enjoy your weekend! XOXO
