Loving Lately: Books, Pens, and More

It’s been a busy past few days, and we’ve been up to lots of fun things around here! With that come lots of things to add to my ever-growing list of loving lately items! Here are some current favorites!

Little Poppy Co bows referral program

I’ve been subscribing to these ADORABLE bows since about March, and just last month made the switch from the headband style to the alligator clips. We love them so much, and every month it’s such a fun surprise to see what the next styles will be. They recently opened up a referral program, where if you are subscribe to their bows, and then refer friends with your link, you can earn free bows! So in order to be transparent, my referral link is above! I try to only recommend products I genuinely know and love and these bows are no exception. Check them out!

Beautycounter Rose Water Spray

This is probably one of the most “diva status” skincare products I own. And I’m not ashamed one bit! Rose water is amazing for your skin, and Beautycounter’s Rose Water Spray smells like a dream. I have been loving using it as a quick refresher during these ridiculously hot and humid days, and it instantly cools me down. Adam still makes fun of me for it, but I swear by it! It also is a great toner for your complexion, and an easy way to “set” your makeup before you head out the door. Most importantly though, it’s free of phthalates, which can disrupt the body’s endocrine system.

Ingle Woodcraft Pens

Adam has been a busy worker bee making homemade wood pens, and has started selling them! These pens are awesome, and so unique. I feel like they would make great stocking stuffers, “just because” gifts, groomsmen gifts, graduations gifts, etc. Be sure to follow him on Instagram to see pricing and future projects.

Adeline and Usborne Books

I recently hosted an online Usborne book party for a good friend of mine, and loved learning about all of the fun books they offer! We already had a few that we received last Christmas, and they’ve been some of Adeline’s favorites! I ordered a couple more for her, and can’t wait to learn more! If you’re interested in ordering a few for your little guy or girl, they make books for babies up through adults. You can order through THIS LINK up until Sunday night! (Or anytime, but if you order before Sunday, Adeline might earn a free book or two 😉 )

Homemade strawberry shortcake

Is there anything more summer than strawberry shortcake? Nope. There’s not. And we’ve been eating it for dessert these past few nights like it’s going out of style. SO GOOD!!

    I was just checking out those bows yesterday after seeing your instagram I think. I love the simplicity of them, especially the headbands. Those pens are amazing. How the heck does he make them! And how does he find the time, lol. Have a great day!

      The best hobbies are the ones you make time for no matter what. If you check out @inglewoodcraft on instagram, there are a couple videos and loads of pictures of how they are done.

      I love them too – I mean I hate paying for something so simple that I feel like I could probably make myself, but who has time for that! A surprise subscription is way more fun 🙂 And I don’t know how he makes half the stuff he makes!

    I am having MAJOR bow envy over here. R won’t keep them on, so it’s not worth it for me to have a subscription. I did for two months and it was so much fun! Buuutt… not really worth keeping in the budget. Boo. A looks so cute in them!
