Happy Friday, friends!! Hope you’ve had a good week and are ready for the weekend.
One Friday a month I send out a list of five fun things I’ve found to my e-mail subscribers. It could be a blog post, a product, a recipe, a book, or just about anything that I think they might like, too.
For August, I decided to bring my list to the blog so that everyone can check it out! (If you’d like to subscribe to my newsletter, you can click here. You’ll get an email every time a new post goes live as well as a weekly update with subscriber-only content and some “behind-the-scenes” news.)

Here are my five fun finds for this month.
Chasing Shadows by Lynn Austin. I don’t read a lot of historical fiction these days. However, I really liked Austin’s last book, so I gave this one a try. It was very good! It’s set in the Netherlands in World War II.
10 Things to Say to a Strong-Willed Teen. Some of these are golden! I think you’ll find them useful whether or not you classify your teen as strong-willed.
Personal Organizer Toiletry Bag (Medium) from L.L. Bean. This is not a new find, but because we’ve been traveling more this summer, it’s gotten a real workout! I love all the pockets and dividers. The attached hook is great, too. It makes it easy to hang the bag from a hook on the back of the bathroom door or on the end of a towel rack. That saves space on those small bathroom countertops! It’s also very durable – I’ve had mine for years.
Croc Women’s Capri V Sequin Flip Flops. Here’s another product I’ve had for a while that’s gotten used a lot this summer. I have the silver sandals, and they go with everything. They’re a little dressier than your basic flip flop. I actually have three pair of Croc flip flops in different styles and I recommend them all. They’re so comfortable!
5 in 1 Professional Curling Iron and Wand Set. So my curling iron quit working on the first day of our cruise. And no, I can tell you from experience that they do not sell curling irons on cruise ships! I ordered a new one once we got home, but until it arrived, I borrowed this set from my daughter. I like that you can switch out the barrel size depending on what type of curl you wanted.
Let me know what you’re loving in August! Hope you have a good weekend!!
