These Pajamas from Nordstrom are more like loungewear…in a good way!
For years I wore GAP lounge pants and tanks or t-shirts as my pajamas. I’m not even sure how many I owned over the years. Always in black that would eventually fade to a charcoal gray that was only noticeable when I rotated in a new tank or pant into the mix…and then GAP body stopped making them. I finally found a pair that takes the place. They are comfortable and all black. The pants are high waisted and you can tuck the top in if you are like me and wear them outside of the house. In the summer I like to take a shower and put on my pajamas on the early side (I mean like 9 pm, so not that early), but then I might want to go hang on the porch. And when you live in a cute little beach neighborhood, there’s a very good chance, someone might stop and say hi. So, wearing these it’s loung-ey, so I don’t feel like I’m getting caught in my PJ’s! If all black pajamas are not your thing, they have 13 other colors/patterns.
The cutest canvas bucket hat for $38
My friend Kim found this hat and I immediately ordered it in cream. I need a new hat for summer and one that I can throw into my bag and not worry about. And this price, I might order it in the moss color too. Oh and this beach blanket is fun too from Anthropologie.

I’ve been noticing the trend of scalloped half walls painted and am loving it, but of course, I have nowhere I could use this in my house. But how cute is this new table from Serena & Lily?

Lemon Essential Oil
If I had to choose a favorite essential oil, it might have to be lemon. It’s bright, fresh, and has more uses than I could possibly list. Young Living Essential Oils are 100% pure therapeutic grade oils, and oils like lemon are considered vitality oils. I often use lemon essential oil to replace fresh lemon juice. I add a drop to a glass of water every morning. I even add a few drops to my window cleaner (Thieves, white vinegar, and lemon) to boost the cleaning power, I use it in my stain stick in the laundry room and it’s a natural goo-gone. Just a drop of two on a sticky residue and it will come right off. Lemon is also great to diffuse on its own or with other essential oils. And the best part is that it’s a reasonably priced oil. Want to know more about why I love essential oils, read this post!
Leave a comment if you would like to try it and I’ll pick two readers to send a bottle of lemon vitality essential oil and a clay diffuser tag!
