Hi friends! Happy Friday! It has been another summer week that has gone by so quickly and I look back and can not remember what even happened. Summer really goes by in a blink! We had a pretty quiet 4th of July but we were thankful we got to see a bunch of fireworks despite the circumstances this year. Anyway, as usual, I am sharing a few favorites this Friday in home, style and family!

One // Wall Basket Update

I am so glad to accomplish one little project this week when I put up this wall basket display.  Last week, I found several additional wall baskets to arrange with the one I had already purchased.

I ended up using 3 out of the four baskets I bought, which I consider a win since I was able to save a little money. Since the wall is pretty small, I stuck with 3 baskets. I could always add two more but I do like the simple look of 3.

It is a nice improvement to the wall and I love that these baskets are all unique and handmade.

Two // Earring Organization

Summer might not be the time to tackle big decluttering projects. But when I have a few minutes, I do a little organization project. Usually, I find that when I’m feeling a little unmotivated, a quick decluttering project helps me to feel accomplished!

This week, I organized my jewelry stash. As you probably know by now, I love Iviana and Co earrings and I realized I have quite a colorful collection!

P. S. This weekend’s flash sale is on Bracelets and Halo Style Earrings. Use jaclyn10 for extra savings. When you buy 3 earrings, you get one pair free too! Flash sale starts Friday at 1 p.m EST.

Three // Athleta Semi Annual Sale

Athleta’s semi annual sale started yesterday and the savings are up to 60% off. Not everything is discounted that much, so you have to do some digging to find the deals.

I talked about these Trekkie pants a few years ago and they are still my favorite Athleta pants.  A few of the colors of these pants are currently part of the sale.

Summer Must Have Pants

This wrap is so cozy. I have it in a rose color. It is so soft and a great cover up to throw on before or after working out.

This wrap is an even better deal. You can not have enough cozy options once Fall arrives!

Tie Dye is still going strong and this tie dye tankini is so cute! The detail on the back is really unique and pretty!

These leopard print high rise pants were my favorite purchase last fall. I wear them all the time for lounging and working out. They go with everything from a cute sweatshirt or wrap to a workout top. I definitely got my money’s worth on these pants.

Four // Summer Fun List

This week, we checked a few more things off our summer fun list.

Every Wednesday, we have been trying out a new ice cream shop. My youngest does not like ice cream, so his treat his usually popcorn or a cookie!

Yesterday, we held our annual Oreo cookie blind taste test. This is one of the kids’ favorite activities. I stock up on a bunch of different Oreo cookie flavors when I come across them at the store. Then, one day I announce we are having the cookie taste test.


Five // More Home Office Progress

We are wrapping things up with my husband’s home office project. I just ordered this light fixture and we are also waiting on his office chair to arrive. Earlier this week, we sanded and stained his new shelves.

So hopefully, the room will be finished in the next week.

Six // Face Mask Organization Idea

Earlier this week, I shared an easy way to organize your face masks. Our family of five has multiple face masks for each person. So, it is very easy for the masks to get misplaced. Plus, I am always trying to keep track of which ones are clean or dirty. If you are in the same boat, check out these Face Mask Baskets to stay organized!

      Thank you Mireille. It is a fun change.

    My youngest wants to do an Oreo taste test. They seem to never be on sale. I wish they sold variety packs!

    Your basket wall looks cute! Love the Oreo game idea and the mask baskets. I can’t imagine having to maintain 5 peoples masks. LOL (empty nester here?) Happy Friday!!!

    That Oreo taste test sounds so fun! I often buy new flavors for us to try but I like how you make a “thing” out of it. My youngest son will eat ice cream but often ends up with a small order of french fries instead when we go out for ice cream since he much prefers fries. Your baskets look great!

    Love the snack taste test idea- genius! Also love the way your baskets came out 🙂
