Friday Favorites...

It's summa summa summa time. I tried a new line of workout clothing, found a few deals at Target and tried to stay indoors and out of the sun as much as I could this past week. I was quite impressed with my new #ootd from Fabletics. You can't beat the price and these crops have me all like whoa! I'll be on a little blog hiatus as I enjoy next week with my family and friends making more memories in cooler temps. Peace out y'all...

Try It Tuesday...

If your child plays baseball or softball then you can relate to the struggle of keeping their pants looking pearly white throughout the season.  Here's a little trick of the trade...power wash the dirt out! It's a super quick way to rinse that red clay out before you throw them in the wash. If it is a big industrial power washer be careful not to hold it on one spot too long because it could rip a hole right through them. You will be fine with your garden variety power washer like the one pictured above. I wish we would have bought ours at the beginning of my son's baseball season this year. The pants in the pictures below do have dirt stains that I couldn't get out earlier in the season but you can still see how well this works. Wash afterwards and they look brand new...

Friday Favorites-Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

scarf
The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is finally here! Me saying..."I look forward to it every year" would definitely be the UNDERSTATEMENT OF THE YEAR! I love Nordstrom like I love my kids and what makes this time of year so special is that I always find a few great deals for fall & winter. For some reason, I never go for the bigger ticket items, so the deals I find are usually around $50 and under and I can't be mad at that nor can my BAE. I've been looking for a faux leather moto jacket and about flipped when I came across the one below. Don't let the picture fool ya...it's much cuter up close and personal. Here are a few of my favorites that won't break the bank but will get you a little excited about the cooler weather that will be here before we know it! Click here to view more of the sale.

Try It Tuesday...Wool Dryer Balls


I've always seen dryer balls in the store but for some reason I have never tried them. I finally took the plunge with these wool balls and am pleasantly surprised with how well they have worked. You don't have to use fabric softener with these puppies and so now I am not adding any chemicals to my wash loads which is always my top priority.  These balls significantly cut my drying time as well so take that Al Gore! There are multiple products out there consisting of different materials and configurations. It just so happens that I chose wool because I can drop a few of my essential oils right into the material and add whatever I want to each load! Click here to look at the ones I bought and let me know what you think if you decide to use them.

Margarita salt...



It's no secret that our margarita game around here is strong to quite strong and now we just took them to another level when I came across the most amazing gourmet sea salt that is just perfect to rim our glasses. The brand is Sal del Mar and it's harvested from the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California.) This course grain salt compliments the lime and tequila while it quickly dissolves leaving you with the most refreshing,  smooth taste of your margarita. Trust me when I say...this isn't your usual salted 'rita.  I'm thinking we might have to add another taco night to our weekly menu! BTW if you don't enjoy an occasional margarita or two,  this salt is ideal for cooking. Plus the cute embroidered cotton bag that the salt comes in is hand embroidered by Mexican women supporting their families. Cute right?
