Happy Weekend: Links to Love!

happy weekendWelp, school is officially out in my neck of the woods which is totally crazy! How is it summer already? If you remember from last year, we basically live in an OVEN in the summer, so it is not my favorite time of year, haha. Especially with a new little one, we will be spending lots more time indoors, so I have been on the look out for any and all awesome summer activities for little ones! So far we are loving this homemade bubble solution, making ice cream in a bag and of course the magic ice cube drinks! If you have any ideas you love, I’d love for you to tell me in the comments!

Anyone with a new little one (or just anyone, in general) should watch this movie. So freaking funny/good.

Have you guys tried the new Pixi by Petra cosmetic line at Target? So far I have been super impressed, especially with these lip balms! I put it on when I do my make up and I am always SHOCKED when hours later I pass a mirror and my lips still have color! Totally worth the money friends.

As a lazy mom of three, my summer hair consists of awesome hats like this one.

Have you guys read Steelheart? A fun, quick read if you are interested (great for the kids, too)!

Happy weekend friends!



Simple Leather Keychain

Leather Key Chain title


Hello Pretty Providence readers!! This is Shonee from Hawthorne and Main!! With fathers day just around the corner I decided to share with you a practical gift idea that dad is sure to love and use!!

To be honest sometimes it’s hard to find a gift for the guys in my life.  I want something that  they will use but that won’t break the bank.  I can’t buy him a new table saw every year… ya know… :)  This simple leather keychain fits both of those categories perfectly!!

In case we are only just meeting, my name is Alice and I blog over at The Lone Star Looking Glass.  I am mostly a fashion blogger, but you can also find me blogging about my many adventures in Texas. My husband and I are new to Texas, and exploring the Lone Star State has been such an exciting adventure so far and I can’t wait for more!

But instead of talking about good ol’ Texas today, I’m going to share with you how I like to style my favorite floral skirt for everyday wear. [Read more…]

Campfire Banana Boats

This post is sponsored as part of a series in partnership with Kimberly-Clark and the #CelebrateFamilyValues campaign.

Banana Boats are the best campfire treat and a fun alternative to S'mores! Best treat for camping with the family or just a trip up the canyon!

There are few things I like more in life than gathering around a campfire with people I love and making tinfoil dinners, s’mores and banana boats! If you have never had banana boats before, you’re missing out. You’ve got banana, marshmallows and chocolate all melted together into something indescribably delicious. Keep reading for the full how-to. [Read more…]
