Southern State of Mind

Beat The Summertime Heat!

Good morning!! I know that this weather is dreadful to deal with and I really wish it would cool down..but it’s Florida so that’s not going to happen anytime soon. Anyways, I’ve been trying to freshen up my place/myself during these summer months and I thought I should share a few tips with you all.

I found a pretty good bed set from Parachute, which is a luxury bedding company that I now adore! The Sateen Venice Set is what I came upon. I like it because it is simple and easy to match basically any type of decor with the ash as its color. I don’t know about you but I am a simple girl and my room right now is barely decorated. But I should be moving in a month so I can buy all new pretty things then. See I can turn that negative into a positive 😉

A/C—Turn DOWN FOR WHAT? THE HEAT. haha get my joke? Okay well I def take it down a notch and make it cooler in my place. That helps a lot especially if you toss and turn like a child having a nightmare like myself during the wee hours of the evening.

Currently, I am reading Jessica and Jep Robertson’s book, The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God: What Honesty and Pain Taught Us About Faith, Family, and Forgiveness. They are my favorite couple on Duck Dynasty and so far I am really enjoying their story.

Reading at night is also super relaxing with a cup of tea with ice since it’s a 100 degrees out and a candle lit right next to ya. Anthropologie has great candles right now and I just purchased one that smells like a macaron! I wish a macaron could magically appear every time I light it but that sadly won’t happen…28981728_046_b10

Enough about me, what about you? What are your favorite ways to cool down, freshen up and be cozy in the summer months? Let me know! I hope you have a lovely day!! Just think a couple more days until the weekend. Yay! xx
