Five Years // Bubblegum Sugar Scrub DIY

Beauty, DIY

The passing of August marks year five (5!) of us being in Portland.
Oregon has been so good to us. The first trip Sean and I took after moving here was to Florida to spend Christmas with my family. I remember driving to our downtown apartment when we got back in town and remarking that Oregon really felt like home. Now a few years, another baby, a cat, a house, and a dog later, I truly can’t imagine living anywhere else.

The end of August marks something else around here, too: Autumn is coming.

Mara Hoffman’s one-piece suits are my spirit animal. Or something. // 4. David Yurman’s classic cable bracelets are the perfect everyday jewelry. // 5. The best smelling sunscreen in the history of the world. // 6. These sandals have been my most worn item this summer, by far. What are your summer staples?
