The Sunday Skim – Spring 2019 – Fifty Three

Welcome to the Sunday Skim. Your weekly recap of all things style, home, entertaining, family, midlife, community and shopping.

What’s Been Happening. Spring is in full force in New Orleans. We went to our first and favorite festival this weekend. It was fun just to get to relax and enjoy the warm weather. I like all the seasons but I really do think spring is my favorite.

Style. A spring wardrobe is not complete without white jeans. Everyone needs a pair. These are my current three favorites. {Affiliate links}

Home. Paxton planted two beans on his field trip last week and I have managed to keep them alive. It’s an actual miracle because I kill everything. Until I found succulents. They are easy to maintain, look pretty and require minimal care. This is perfect for me. This is a great how to on growing your own indoor garden.

Entertaining. So you boiled eggs to dye for Easter and now it’s like, what do we do with all these boiled eggs??? This or This

Family. I have a Busy Box of sorts in my cabinet at all times. The items change depending on what I have on hand or what I grabbed out of the dollar bin at Target. Essentially this is a box of items you can pull down in a pinch. Too much fighting, it’s raining, too hot to go outside, everyone is crying… no problem! Enter the busy box. There is no right way to build a busy box but if you are looking for a guideline this one is great!

Midlife. I started my Mid-life Tune-Up this week with my new blog partner NUR Medical Spa in Baton Rouge. This week I am writing up a full recap of what we will be doing over the next six months but you can check out the short version in my Instagram highlights. When we start aging it is easy to jump to things like surgery and Botox but sometimes, with the right doctor, you can prevent having to do those things prematurely. I am looking forward to this journey of improving my skin and also seeing if I can reverse the damage I have.

Shopping. Looking for the perfect Easter Dress? I added several from the LOFT and Macy’s to my Shop this week. Check it out here.
