Summer Soirée pop up almost every week! From birthdays, to dinner parties, to gatherings – there is always something going on. I’m a big believer in hostess gifts, thank you gifts, and just because gifts. My mama raised me to never show up empty handed to anyone’s house. There are a few gifts – all under $50 – that I constantly reach or to buy that fits the bill for every occasion. Today I’m sharing my go to favorites!
This past weekend my family and I took a fun weekend trip to Shenandoah National Park. It’s a short two hour drive from the DC area to Shenandoah and there are lots of beautiful lodges to spend the night. We stayed at Skyland Resort and had an amazing time!
Summer time is all about fun in the sun, weekend trips, and being on the go to soak up this amazing weather. I am very loyal to my skincare routine however don’t want to deal with the fuss packing it all up for a weekend trip. The Drunk Elephant The Littles is the perfect skincare pack on the go that I can toss in my bag and enjoy my summer travels.
I love fashion. That is very obvious! As much as I’d love to have an endless budget to buy every pretty floral dress and designer handbag, I can’t, because I’m on a budget. I have student loans and can’t get myself to have an unlimited budget for clothing. Additionally since the beginning of this year I am making a conscious effort to be sustainable and consume less in every aspect of my life. Insert Rent The Runway Unlimited! RTR Unlimited is a monthly clothing subscription service that allows you to rent designer items from dresses, skirts, pants, tops and accessories for a monthly fee.
I signed up for RTR back in June and have been loving the endless clothing options. I am pleasantly surprised by all the modest, hijab friendly, pieces RTR has to offer. I figured I’d break the process down for everyone who’s interested in trying the service in a single post.
