Here’s a peek at all the things I’ve been loving in July! Can’t wait to hear yours down below. xo

Kite Hill Chive Cream Cheese Style Spread. I am totally on this bandwagon. This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. It’s dairy free. It’s made with almonds. And it tastes like HEAVEN. I like this so so so so so much.

American Spoon Wildflower Honey Mustard. HOLY COW. This is new at American Spoon this year and if you’re a mustard freak… you need it. It’s like a tangy but creamy honey mustard. We’ve barely had it a week and already have gone through half a jar.

Milk Chocolate Amaretto Cherries. I love Cherry Republic and was super excited to see that they reopened their storefront in Charlevoix after a a fire had destroyed it last year. These cherries were an impulse purchase – we usually buy a bag of chocolate covered ones, but I grabbed these too because my SIL and I were starving! These are… insane. So darn delicious.

Jeni’s Salted Peanut Butter with Chocolate Flecks Ice Cream. OMG. This is unreal. SO so so so good. I had it a year or two ago, and I just had some a few weeks ago. However, when I returned from vacation I actually had a PR package from Jeni’s Ice Cream (literally a dream) and that was one of the flavors, so now it’s in my fridge. If you’re a chocolate peanut butter freak like me, you’ll love love love it. Pretty sure you can find it at Whole Foods!

Rails Wren Stripe Dress. Okay so I’ve mentioned this dress a bunch over the last month because I’ve practically lived in it. So comfy. So cute! Rails stuff is just so soft. And it has POCKETS!

Rails Sydney Stripe Shirt. SO obviously, speaking of, this is another one of my faves. I bought this for both Lacy and my mom for their birthdays in June and I’ve been wearing it nonstop. I love that it buttons up the front and back. Really cute for summer.

Southern Charm. I’m embarrassed but not so much that this was my guilty pleasure TV show over the last month. I don’t watch much reality TV and I’m totally hooked on this.

The Affair. And I can’t go without mentioning The Affair as another favorite, because it is SO good this season. It’s back to where it was in seasons 1 and 2. Loving it so much.

Logan and Lenora Oversized Carryall Tote. I actually have two of these bags and ended up using them more than expected at the beach since they are waterproof. They are also GIANT. Like you can fit so many things. I would fit 5 beach towels in here, a few toys for Max, snacks, baby stuff for Emilia, sunscreen – even more. You can really load it up. And the prints are SO cute.

Little Unicorn Waterproof Outdoor Blanket. This was another purchase I made in June and it is so awesome. We took it to both Rehoboth and Boyne City. I will say that since it’s waterproof, sand slides onto it easier than a regular beach towel, which means Emilia can get a handful. But I’ve found that the secret is placing this on the sand and then after you swim or whatever, placing your beach towels on top to sit or sleep or whatever. Then your wet towels aren’t crusted with sand! I’ve also been using this in our yard and it’s perfect for grass.

Cooler Shock Ice Packs. Very random, I know. Like really random. But we desperately needed new ice packs for our coolers (I think we were using ones Eddie bought 20 years ago or something… eeek) an these were the highest reviewed. OMG. They are incredible. You actually fill them yourself and they turn to gel. Then you freeze and they last forever. Like over 24 hours. I also use this size to stick in that JuJu Lunch Box thing that I take EVERYWHERE. I mentioned it last month and I seriously throw that thing in my bag every time we go some where. An ice pack, something  like blueberries for Emilia, yogurt for Max, a Perfect Bar for me. It’s the best.
