summer 18 faves
Summer 18 has been going by so fast, amiright? It's crazy and a whirlwind, but here today I'm sharing the things I'm loving and so into this summer! Also, please note that I'm delusional and for me summer never ends and I'll be saying it's summer until the end of September, so this is basically summer week one for me.
I have never ever shopped on Amazon for fashion ever in my life until this summer and now I am totally obsessed with it. The thing about shopping on Amazon for clothes, like anything else you buy on Amazon, is that it takes a lot of time to weed through the pages and reviews and prices. But, I am a dedicated online shopper and will stop at nothing but the best price and free shipping so it is totally my thang. Earlier in the summer I wrote a whole post about the best style deals I've found on Amazon for under $20 and posted my FAVORITE top in the world, that I ordered three of, and you can read the whole post and find all the links here:
[ P.S. this is my fave top and i for sure ordered three and it's less than $3 ]
One of my favorite places that I've ever visited in the world is Kurdistan, Iraq. I love Kurdish culture and food, and I was so excited when I discovered Sazan Barzani's jewelry. She is a Kurdish designer with a really trendy and chic online boutique featuring her collections. Her pieces are so fun and funky and totally what I'm craving right now. Click through her gorgeous, colorful pieces here:

Tribe and Treasure Ear Cuff
I have searched high and low, far and wide for an ear cuff that doesn't snap two days after I buy it. I'm a gold jewelry kind of gal, so the cheapy silver ones I was buying were not cutting it for me. I searched Etsy for a shop with a good review and low and behold I found this gem! It's sold by Tribe and Treasure, and I totally love it. The search is over people! Here it is, your life is complete.
I bought the gold, dainty ear cuff, but for sure I will be back for more. Plus now I feel like a super cool, trendy surfer girl, so double win. Buy yours here:
I'm a gluten free girl who loves to snack. I've spent a ton of time this summer searching for new munchies to grab when I'm really craving a piece of bread [I miss you gluten xoxo], and these have stuck around the last few rounds of GF snack testing as my favorites! They're chickpea puffs that basically taste like Cheetos. So good! You can find them at any grocery store.
the good life with stevie and sazan
Stevie and Sazan Hendrix are a super cool, Jesus-loving, hilarious couple from LA who started this fun podcast that is fresh and easy to listen to. Stevie and Sazan are social media influencers, youtubers, and together own a box subscription company called Bless Box. Funny story, Sayran, who I mentioned up there who's jewelry I'm obsessed with, is sisters with Sazan. So now I love them both all the more and I'm digging this new podcast! Listen here on Podcast One:
Mama mia! here we go again
A weird thing happened this summer where I became totally obsessed with Mama Mia. Couldn't tell you why but I can tell you that I've burned off 100,000 calories dancing to Dancing Queen. My poor, sweet boyfriend went to see it with me opening night and almost died from exhaustion of mental capacity before it was over, but I LOVED IT SO MUCH. I actually bought glittery flare pants to wear to the movie theatre. Seriously, I'm not even embarrassed that I sing the soundtrack every day and know the When I Kissed the Teacher dance routine because I'm so obsessed. Love.
It will make you want to go to Greece and start jumping off cliffs into the ocean and listen to Lily James sing all day every day.
