Justin's Maple Almond Butter

I decided to see what the hype was all about and got a jar of Justin's Almond Butter. It tastes really good and is great for breakfast on Ezekiel bread. I like the maple flavor because it kind of gives it a PB&J vibe which I also love. Almond butter is healthier than peanut butter plus it's a nice change from regular old PB.

Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo 
Batiste was my favorite dry shampoo and whenever I ran out of it I just used baby powder. I found this at Target on sale for $4 and it's easily just as good as Batiste. Fellow blondies, dry shampoo and baby powder are a great root hider. I can get a few extra weeks without getting my hair did by spraying dry shampoo on my roots. 

Madewell Silk Garden Gate Dress 
We have a wedding to go to in August and this dress would be perfect. It's very feminine and looks comfortable too.

Lanston Stripe Pullover

I love simple striped tops that you can wear through any season. In my opinion you can never own too many.

Willow & Clay Embroidered Miniskirt
I've been wanting a tight miniskirt to wear out. I love the print and neutral color on this one. You could pair so many different colors and types of tops with it. 

Cooper & Ella Alana Open Back Tee
This top reminds of the Equipment Riley tops but for so much cheaper. I love the floral design. The shirt is open in the back, hence the name, so it kind of has an added sexiness to it. 

Joie Divitri Blouse
One of my favorite blouses is on sale for 60% off. I have it in the Light Smoke color but also love this Porcelain one as well. Although I'm not too sure why they have it with the matching pants so it looks like she's wearing pajamas...?!

Now that OITNB is over with, Theo and I started watching a new Netflix show called Hemlock Grove. Don't let the poster scare you, it really isn't scary more sci-fi and suspenseful. It kind of reminds me of True Blood with mystical creatures living in a town but it definitely has its own plot. I'm really liking it and I usually don't care for sci-fi.

  1. That embroidered mini skirt is so pretty!! I haven't quite gotten into almond butter yet - but I need to switch my breakfasts up - so I'll try that on an english muffin!!

  2. I can't remember the late time I even had regular peanut butter. Justin's is definitely the best, but I normally get the Trader Joe's brand that's cheaper. That skirt would go with so many things!

  3. Living that stripe pullover and I think that dress would look so pretty on you! I need to try that maple butter for my son. He's allergic to peanuts. I've gotten him almond butter before and he doesn't like it - maybe the maple route is the way to go!

  4. yummm that peanut butter looks so good! cute shirt too. xo jillian - cornflake dreams
