This has been such a fun, relaxing week here on Nantucket. I always look forward to this week and this one has been no exception. (I’m also coming back for a week at the end of August with my parents and sister!) It was definitely the warmest I have ever been here so it’s called for plenty of trips to the beach and watermelon.
I have to admit, I haven’t spent more than a couple of hours on my laptop every night/morning, and I didn’t do too much besides answering emails and keeping up with work. But… Here’s what has been on my radar:
ONE // Fohr Card Testimonials
Fohr Card is a really great way for bloggers and influencers (sorry, for lack of a better word!) to keep an up to date media kit. I used to have to spend quite a bit of time formatting and updating my media kit, and then Fohr Card came around a few years ago. It has everything about my brand and business, from my follower count, readership on my blog, and engagement on my posts. They just released a new version and I spent a bit of time getting everything up to date. I like that they’re moving away from specific numbers and trying to get to the core of who someone is as a person and a brand. One way they’re doing that is by collecting testimonials from readers about why you follow a particular person. If you would like to take the time to fill it out, I would really appreciate it! Merci!
TWO // Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
If you’re a card member at Nordstrom, you can now access the anniversary sale. This is my favorite time of year to stock up on favorite brands and basics (like my go-to bras and undies). I got a few sneak peeks and while most of it is what you’d expect considering prior years, there are some new things that I’m particularly interested in… like Gal Meets Glam dress! Regular access kicks off July 19, which is when I’ll do my shopping since I don’t have a card 😉
Can you believe that I only just watched Father of the Bride for the first time last fall? And Meghan and I watched the second one this week! It is such a great film– I love anything Nancy Meyers does!! I loved reading this modern take on what Annie would wear if the movie had been filmed today.
FOUR // My Boyfriend Cheated On Me
Unfortunately, I believe many of you can relate to this very raw and vulnerable video Monica Church just released. It’s a horrible feeling. While I could never have been as articulate as Monica, I think she really captured the raw emotions involved with finding something like this out and there’s no doubt in my mind that it will help someone else out.
FIVE // Coffee Scrub
I tried this body scrub for the first time this week– in an outdoor shower no less!– and it’s maybe one of my favorite beauty products now!!! It’s a full body coffee grounds scrub that literally leaves your skin so insanely soft. I didn’t realize how intense it would look (it looks like the grounds left behind in the filter of a percolator)… but it rinses off like a dream and feels even dreamier when it’s all said and done.
