We spent Memorial Day weekend cleaning and purging the house, bleaching and scrubbing the desk, and getting the house ready for summer weather. And has tired I was after it was all over (well, semi-over. We still need to purge the basement and spare bedroom), I'm so thrilled to have less stuff sitting around gathering dust. And bleaching our dirt-and-algae covered deck turned out AMAZING. Now that it's a little less disgusting out there, we're hoping to spend a little more time grilling hot dogs, drinking rosé, and making fired in the chiminea.
Have you done your spring/summer cleaning yet? Is it something you look forward to, or completely dread? Now that I've gotten rid of so many things I wasn't using, I have a little more space for a few new items! Here are a few things I've been enjoying recently:
For the last year or so I've been struggling to spend time reading. When I open a book, I can't focus on the words, I have to keep rereading things, and it makes me immediately so sleepy. BUT I've been trying to change my habits and get myself back on the reading band wagon. A friend gave me the book, You are a Badass, when I left my previous job and a year later, I started reading it and definitely like it a lot. I also bought myself I'll Be Gone in the Night by Michelle McNamara about the Golden State Killer and it's been such a fascinating read.
I purchased some DOPE mules from Target that I've been absolutely loving lately. Super comfortable, a slight heel but nothing too crazy, and love the yellow color.
It's finally peony season! Peonies are by far my fav flower and now that Trader Joe's finally has them, I'm stocking up all season long.
I was given these Heart Sunglasses by a friend and they are not my go-to glasses. I had a pair of more classic-looking heart shaped sunglasses that I've been wearing for a few years, but they were starting to get a big worn out. At first, I thought they were too big and flashy but I quickly got over that because I love a statement sunglass.
After a rough beginning of the season with my scooter, we finally got her tuned and ready to go for the summer. My scooter is absolutely one of my most favorite purchases I have ever made and has made traveling around the city way easier and a lot more fun. Because I'm thinking about trading my girl in at the end of the year for an upgraded model, I'm trying to really enjoy my last summer with this mint beauty.
