My favorite chill playlist


Other than when I am sleeping, I listen to music all the time. I have two playlists that I listen to the most. This one, Nantucket Beach House Sunset, is perfect for when I want to relax.

It's cold and raw here in Seattle right now but when I listen to this playlist, I think of warm nights on Nantucket, with a group of friends joining us on the terrace. The air is salty and humid and laughter floats in the air, I look at the people I love enjoying themselves as my favorite music flavors our background. I hope you like it too.

My favorite Disney item for our 5 year-old



Of all of the Disney items we have bought our five year-old, this is the one that is her favorite. Five Disney Princess shirts all in one package. Each shirt looks like a Disney Princess dress. With five shorts, and five pairs of colored bike shorts, this would be the perfect set of outfits for a Disney vacation.

Our daughter wore a different Disney Princess outfit every day at camp last week and when we visit Walt Disney World next, these outfits will be coming with us. The shirts are high quality, thick and wash and dry well (dry inside out). 

If your daughter loves Disney, this pack of five Disney Princess shirts is a steal at $34.79.

My Favorite Bronzer


I love bronzers. I love the feel of air dried hair, tan skin and rosy cheeks. This means that I have tried every bronzer from the department store brands including Chanel to the drugstore brands. I've tried creams, powders and gels. None of the brands I have tried gave me the perfect look. Until now. 

I just purchased the e.l.f.  Putty Bronzer in Golden Daze. I used their putty brush and applied it over my sunscreen. I am in love. It's even better than the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream. This e.l.f. product is actually not just an excellent dupe for Chanel but on me the color is more of a true tan and  the application was much smoother. I added the e.l.f. putty blush in Tahiti across the bridge of my nose and cheeks and I looked like I had spent the day on the beach without the sunburn. This is it. For $14 total I achieved the exact look of a healthy summer glow that I always wanted. I can't recommend this enough. I'm heading back to buy a few more for my handbag and carry-on bag.

My Favorite Travel Mug


I can't seem to log on to Instagram without seeing ads for travel mugs and while I've tried others, I keep coming back to my 40 ounce Simple Modern tumbler. I drink mostly iced tea and iced espresso with nugget ice and this mug keeps my iced drinks cold for more than 24 hours.It also fits perfectly in my car's cupholder and I love the way it feels in my hand. This ombre color is sold out but I'd buy this a thousand times over in any color.
