back to school | clothing & shoes haul

So I went to my local Premium Outlets for back to school shopping, and they were having some great deals so I got a few basics for back to school! Also, half way through the dresses I realized that you could see my feet and I had no shoes on so I kept with it...whoops!
First I got these Nike Flex Experience sneakers and I LOVE them, they're so comfortable!
Then at TJMaxx I got these cropped grey leggings.

At Old Navy I got this black shift dress which I absolutely LOVE!!

Also at Old Navy I got this super cute dress!
And the last thing I got from Old Navy is this tangerine shift dress.

I always get my jeans from American Eagle and this year was no exception!
I got this light hi-rise jeans, and this is my first pair of light wash jeans and I am really liking them!

I also got this black pair of jeans which I really like, I have been wanting to get a pair for a while!

And finally at American Eagle I got these cute sandals!

H&M Haul from Spain

When I was in Spain I was SO happy to see H&M because the one in the mall that I go to regularly closed and it's such a great store!  I got some great basics there, actually like two basic pieces in lots of colors, lol!  When I find something I love...
First I got this basic white tee...which ran REALLY small!
Then I also got it in this oatmeal color...
And in black...
And gray!
Then I got this bucket hat because I had been wanting one and it was only $10 so I figured what the heck :)
I also got this black romper... 
 and I got the same romper in this maroon color!

my backpack and accessories

So I recently got my backpack for this year and some things that kind of go with it and wanted to share!
My back is a North Face Borealis Classic which they actually don't make anymore so I ended up ordering it from Italy because I don't really like the new style that came out which is all that North Face is selling.  I love these backpacks I previously had the North Face Jester backpack and loved it, I washed it several times and it was so durable!

I got this Vera Bradley lanyard in Sierra for my keys, this way I can hopefully find them easier!
For my lunch bag I got the Vera Bradley Lighten Up Lunch Cooler in Sierra It is such a perfect size and is a plastic inside so you can easily wipe it clean!
The Borealis backpack has this perfect pocket for my phone and wallet! I got the Vera Bradley Zip ID case in Sierra to keep some money and my license in.

mango smoothie with granola

Making my breakfast, this morning I made a mago smoothie with granola on top...
I just put frozen mangos and vanilla yogurt in the magic bullet...

And, it was delicious

Pool Essentials

Here is a list of my favorite things to bring to the pool

So, I start off by bringing a drink, here I made delicious smoothies...
I used strawberries, mango, raspberry yogurt and orange juice
I started by pouring the raspberry yogurt into my blender
Then I added one cup of mango
and one cup of strawberries
lastly, I added the orange juice
they turned out delicious!
I always bring out magazines to read, a hat, sunglasses, flip flops, a towel and most importantly my Arbonne sunscreen which I love because I burn super easily!

Spain Souvenirs

While visiting Spain's royal palace I picked up this beautiful scarf...
While in Spain I came upon several Starbucks and picked up this pretty mug to use in the car! Also while touring Toledo I went into this beautiful hand made pottery shop and I got this beautiful bowl, which I am now using on my night stand to store jewelry. When I was in Barcelona I went to La Segrada Familia and got these pretty salt and pepper shakers, a Barcelona coaster and 2 pretty post cards!

July Favorites

Here are the products I have been loving this month! If you have seen my daily Spain blogs you will definitely see that I have been wearing the heck out of my Birkenstock's!  My favorite mascara I tried this month is CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume. The OPI "color so hot it berns" is all I have been wearing on my toes lately! To take off my nail polish I have been  obsessed with the Target nail polish remover jar with these great scrubby bristles! I also have been using the Paul Mitchell skinny serum like crazy this month to help smooth my hair. My favorite candle this month has been the Yankee Candle in margarita it smells amazing! I recently discovered these amazing chocolate covered blueberries they are SO good!
Hope you have found some great favorites this summer!

Spain Day 9

Today I traveled home from Barcelona!
This wasn't a very exciting day - 8 hour flight - 6 hour lay over - another delay on the runway because of Air Force One and then I was finally home!!!!
In the terminal during my layover I had some of my favorite food that I missed...Chipotle
