Friday Faves

Happy Friday friends!   A post shared by Amber Downs | amberdowns.net | (@_amberdowns) on Jun 19, 2018 at 4:49am PDT ; Hope your week was well, mine was short as I came home from Maryland Monday night so I missed a day of work. […]

A few days in Maryland

This past weekend Charlie and I spent some time in the town where Charlie spent most of his childhood. Although we spent most of our time visiting with old friends and driving around his old stomping grounds, we did get to spend a little bit […]

Happy Friday y’all! (Ok, technically I’m posting this on Saturday, so bear with me.)

I love that once piece bathing suits are “in” again. Finally, we can wear something that covers stuff. Yeah, most of them are more skimpy than a bikini, but I have seen some cute stuff this season. Right now I am loving this black one from Target. Those scallops? Adorable. Want to show a little more skin? This one is cute too and has a full coverage bottom.

I just finished The Beauty of Dirty Skin by Whitney Bowe and really connected with a lot of what she said regarding skin, diet, and how it all connects. I will be sharing more about her book in the future, but if you’re into those topics check it out.

Charlie has a gig tomorrow so I am going to do a little bit of summer planting. Generally we are done with most plant-y things by now here in Florida, but I am going to try and put in some hardy plants and see if they stick. I’ll share more about that on Instagram.

Now that the rains have subsided we’ve been swimming every day. I am looking for tips as to how to help my skin cope with the water and chlorine it is getting so much of. Any ideas?

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
