So long, July… here’s to the best summer I’ve had in years. And, a peek at what’s going on currently…
CURRENT SHOPPING SPOT:
There’s a cute little boutique in Denver that I found recently through Instagram – – Thanks, Julie over at PaleOMG!
It’s called Inspyre Boutique, and you should totally follow them on Instagram too. I am LOVING their clothes and accessories, and well… everything. They have three shops in Denver and a fantastic website. LOVE.
I’ve also tried layering with their pieces too… I’m new to this trend, but loving it! The diamond necklace is from Inspyre…
Dried Figs… I love the rich, caramel flavor of dried figs. I first fell in love with them as a pairing to beautiful cheese at Wine and Cheese Restaurant in Denver.
Now, I buy them in little wheels at Sprouts. I pick up one almost every week, and they’re such a delicious snack. Yum!
CURRENT MUSIC OBSESSION:
Not surprisingly, my music obsession this summer has been Kelly Clarkson clips on YouTube. She does this amazing thing every time she goes on tour. She takes Fan Requests for a song a fan wants to hear. Over the summer, she’s covered SO MANY amazing songs. They just keep getting better. There was Jealous by Nick Jones, Bye Bye Bye by N Sync, Radioactive by Imagine Dragons… and this one, which is my fave so far: Blank Space by Taylor Swift, but in a very Kelly Clarkson way.
I can’t wait to see what she sings when I see her in Vegas and Denver in a few weeks…
CURRENT SELFIES WITH A STORY BEHIND THEM:
These… from last week’s Rockstar event. More to come… what a blast!
CURRENT BEAUTY SECRET:
Before I headed to California last week, I wanted to give my hair a little boost. I’m still a few weeks from my appointment with my colorist, and I used this little box o’ goodness.
It’s made by Clairol and it’s a clear gloss treatment for your hair called Shine Happy. I LOVE this stuff, and I’ve been using it for years… smooths everything out and makes you all shiny. And, I can’t help but think the Happiness Tour has something to do with that name, y’all!
CURRENT DESSERT TREAT:
Jenny Craig is launching new foods for the fall, and they are going to be EPIC!! My friends at Jenny shared that they have a whole list of comfort foods coming out for the cooler weather.
And, to kick things off, they launched THIS. Yes, that’s a Chocolate Lava Cake, y’all… who says healthy foods can’t be decadent?? Certainly not this girl…
CURRENT NAIL COLOR:
Can we talk about the white nail trend and how much I love it??
I’ve had it done twice now… and I’m officially obsessed. Especially with a summer (spray) tan, it’s phenomenal. I’m wearing mint green this week, but next week… we’re back to white!
CURRENT TOUR STOPS:
Because it’s what I do… I’m taking this show on the road again this month! Two beautiful stops: Vegas to celebrate my dear Dr. Risto and NYC for a Jenny Craig event that I can’t wait to tell you more about!
CURRENT LIP COLOR:
I’m loving this new color from Lancome called Violette Coquette. In the tube, it looks REALLY purple, but when you put it on it is a gorgeous pinkish plum… and incredibly moisturizing!
CURRENT CAN’T STOP/WON’T STOP:
Cooking. Seriously, having traveled almost every other week of the summer… I got home from California, and all I wanted to do was to cook in my kitchen. And, to cook EVERYTHING.
It’s starting back up again. I mean, I made fresh salsa… just because I could. I mean, I don’t plan on buying chips. So, I’m not sure what I had in mind there, but I had to make it.
Truthfully, I’m more moved by the mom who is focusing on her happy and sending me a note, the co-worker who’s posting selfies on Instagram saying she’s starting, and my blogger friends who are jumping on board as well. I’m thrilled to be on this HappinessTour with all of you!
Happy is definitely the new black, y’all… and I love every bit of it! Yes, I own this shirt. You can get yours here.
