Lindsey's FAVORITE THINGS FOR SUMMER!!

I was watching some TIVO'd Oprah Shows the other night and came across her Favorite Things for SUMMER! I decided to take a little page from OPRAH's book and have my own "FAVORITE THINGS" list. You know what??? I think all of you should too!!! I have just come upon so many great things lately, they are hard to not share with others, so, here it goes!!! (Please tell me when you have YOUR list ready to share!)

Since Oprah was the inspiration, I will start with a knock off from her list because you can ALL enjoy it! It is the MAR-A-LAGO TURKEY BURGER!Made by the Executive Chef at Donald Trump's Mar-a-lago. My mother in law and I BOTH decided to make them yesterday for Memorial Day, and they were AWESOME! I HIGHLY recommend them. They might take a little prepwork.. But if you feel like WOWING your guests for a BBQ, this is a SURE FIRE way to do it!

Many of you visit Kelly, and if you don't, you need to start because the girl has the best fashion sense on a budget that I have seen in a long time. She could definitely start her own fashion website.. and practically has. She gave my summer a kick start by suggesting this shirt from target. She said it was her newest favorite shirt, but now it is mine. I hopped on down to Target to get it, and they didn't carry it at my store, but they DO ONLINE.... For $12.99 it is a steal, and everyone looks great in it. LOVE IT. So, go ahead and buy it now.. in all 4 colors. You will be glad you did. Bag the plain old t-shirts just for one summer, and look CUTE!


What does everyone need to go with a cute new shirt? CUTE SHOES! I have LONNNNGG since coveted these gladiator sandals worn by Kate Hudson, They just speak to me. HOWEVER, I found out that they are Chanel, and since I don't plan on setting foot inside Chanel maybe EVER, I guess they are out of the question. PLUS I don't think I could really pull off the Gladiator Sandal Look... since I am rarely seen outside of cut offs and a t-shirt in the summer toting around a crumb faced kid. BUT, if I DID have someplace sassy to go, I would get THESE knock offs and feel like a fashionista!

Ok, SHIRT: Check! SHOES: Check! HANDBAG: Ohhh baby... what girl DOESN'T love a great handbag. I like to keep it below the $50 mark. (I know some of you out there go a little beyond that...)However, why go over that when you can have THIS!OR THIS!OR THIS!!!ALL WHILE SAVING MOTHER EARTH! That is right.. they are man-made! No harm to animals... recycled goodness. I don't profess to be a TOTALLY green goddess, but I do try my best, and why not get one of these bags for under $50 to make you feel even more GREEN. :)Find a Shiraleah bag at a store near you.. You WON'T be disappointed.

There are other things that belong on this list like the Vitamixand these flip flops that I am about to order from Eddie Bauer $5 off each pair if you order 2 pairs!!!They come in 8 different COLORS!

But the last thing I am going to put on my list for summer is: If you need to find me, this is where I will be. You are welcome to come for a swim any time! :)

I loved this and now I am totally thinking about my fav summer things...

Though the gladiator sandals are cute, I definitely need a heel, my seven year old is almost as tall as me! And I so need a handbag I am checking those websites out!

I just got some cute bags at Target clearance for $5.00! LOVE IT. However, when those break, I am looking into this website. I LOVE those purses. And the chicken thing...will you make that when we get together for a bbq and swim? My place or yours?

Such a cute idea...and I love the purses with the cute danglies and rick rack trim! Also, I can't imagine why you'd rush down to paradise...just don't see it...sigh, I wish I was you.

I need to buy that shirt. I think I will get green. I love green, just like I love all the up and happening things you keep me updated on through your blog. You have such good taste in food, clothes, accessories, etc. That's why I have the same green purse you had on the blog earlier this year. I know I can trust what you give an opinion on and I like your style.

Christina said...

Penny said...
