August Favorites

August Favorites

As August comes to a close, I wanted to share some of my favorite things for the month! 1)      Picnics- Sure the weather hasn’t been as beach friendly as I’d hoped it would this year, but we have had some wonderful breezy days that were made for picnics in the park.  Grab a couple of friends and have everyone bring a dish that’s easy to transport and serve.  It will be the best afternoon you’ve …

The Last Splash of Summer

The Last Splash of Summer

It’s true, Summer is winding down.  Soon, the days will start getting shorter, the nights cooler, and the beautiful smell of summer air will leave us for months to come.  But guess what?  It’s not over yet! I’m such a summer lover that I cherish and savor every last drop of this magical season and aim to extend it for as long as possible.  Since color is a known mood enhancer I like to enrich …

How to Craft Lessons – Seashell Decorating Ideas

August is my beach month. There’s nothing like spending your weekends at the beach with friends and family. What’s your favorite beach activity? Spending the day reclined and relaxing in a beach chair, taking long walks along the shore line, collecting sea shells with your children or grandchildren or splashing in the water? I tend to do a little bit of everything if I get the chance, but collecting sea shells and bringing them home …

Summer Whites

Summer Whites

Nothing screams summer like crisp, bright white clothing. If you think about it, this single color {or lack thereof} outlines the season’s calendar. We all know that summer unofficially starts with Memorial Day and Ends with Labor Day and it’s also said that white pants and white shoes can only be worn between those holidays.  All things considered, I think it’s safe to declare that whites should be worn loud and proud all summer long! …

What’s In Your Beach Bag?

What’s In Your Beach Bag?

Whether you’re headed for the beach or lounging by the pool, you’re sure to have a beach bag in hand. Woman Within wants to know: What are your beach bag essentials?
