Ebb & Flow: May

The highs and lows of the month.

Lush Tea Tree Spray

Paul & Joe lipstick in Catamaran

Acqua di Parma Arancia di Capri

Haus of Gloi Snow Wolf Pumpkin Butter, that cedar is enthralling.

The Bathing Garden Sleepy, hitting the spot.

Handmade in Florida Lovely Lavender

Honeycrisp apples

Thai Tea Boba and it blew my mind.

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater

An Idiot Abroad, because Karl.

Jimmy Buffet Boats, Beaches, Bars & Ballads box set

The summer slipping by too fast.

The summer break so I can sew a few things, paint a few things, and read, read, read.

These Love Potion Perfumes that I will be posting about tomorrow. In love.

Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean candle... smells too smokey and cheap even with the wicks trimmed. Not digging it.

I think you guys know the answer to that one, getting canned.

A new job and a gorgeous day at the beach with my family yesterday. Nothing like the warm sun and swimming in the gulf with the kiddos and husband to end the month. My sisters also made me a box of sunshine when I lost my job and that brought me to tears, a definite high.

How was your May? Tell me about your highs or lows, you hits or misses.


  1. Don't you just love Snow Wolf? The frankincense and cedar in that one are just like instant relaxers for me.

    I'm so sorry for the troubles with your old job, but hope that the new job you landed will be fulfilling and full of awesome surprises. I'm glad that you have the blessing of sisters to help lift you up when things are low. I don't know where I'd be without my sister. She's my anchor. <3 I hope that June is full of lots of highs!

    1. I do! I wasn't sure when I first opened it because I got pencil shavings but once I put it on and started wearing it the scent warmed up and became a craving. I used it all up last night and will be lamenting its demise until winter rolls around again.

      Thank you Dani. It will be great and will work out for the best in the end. Are you and your sister close in age? I am ten years older so we are just now becoming friends and having stuff in common. It has been a huge blessing for sure. I hope my girls will always be best friends. So far so good. <3 I hope your June is fabulous too!

  2. Hope that June & summer brings more highs than lows! I keep putting off The Raven King, I love the series so much, but I'm not ready for it to end! Plus, I'm a little worried about HOW it will end! :)

    1. Thank you! You too! We went through the ringer lately and we need a break! Soooooo I finished it and it was good. I feel like I missed some things but overall I am happy with it. We need to book talk about it.

    2. I hope to read it soon & we'll definitely have to chat about it!!:)
