Tuesday Top 10 #14: Weekly Faves

{My bestie This Messy Season and I started a series together -Tuesday Top 10. In which we share 10 of our faves from each week. These can be any 10 things that we’ve been loving, and I hope you keep tuning in to see what we come up with next! Some of these products may have been sent to me and these posts may contain affiliate links- thanks so much for helping support my blog and family! }

I think I’m finally getting back into the swing of things, post beginning of Summer madness. Is Summer flying by for anyone else? I feel like it just started, but it’s almost over? Getting older is weird, time flies!

But, I digress- I’m back with *another* Tuesday Top 10, in which I share all of the random things I have been loving recently. I’ve gotten a few new goodies as of late, and this is the perfect way for me to share them with you!

1.) My first 2 items are both clothing item faves, because Summer means I needed new Summer wardrobe items. Love, Kuza– one of my very favorite boutiques was gracious enough to partner with me again and send me a couple of pieces. {They also sent a discount code for my followers- use code: mrsbishop20%off to save!} I could not be more obsessed with this Vintage Crochet Cardigan (which they’re currently sold out of, so keep your eyes peeled to see if they get more!). It is the PERFECT layering piece for hot weather, because it’s lightweight and beautiful. I just throw it on top of a tank top and it really brings my look up a notch with minimal effort. I’m a sucker for details and the back is so romantic and feminine, totally my style. I absolutely adore the whole long, flow-y cardigan and kimono type style and hope it’s here to stay.

2.) I picked out this Polka Dot Poppins Dress because I thought it would make the perfect swimsuit cover up (which it does!). But, it’s so well made and durable that I can wear it on its own as a gorgeous dress for any occasion. I was nervous about the white, but it’s lined so you can’t see through it at all. I will admit that it’s VERY low cut- so if you’re feeling daring, rock it. But, I am not so bold so I just popped a black tank underneath. It’s light enough for Summer and the polka dots make it fun and flirty. I’ll be wearing it on repeat the rest of the Summer.

3.) My VERY favorite lipstick brand, Red Apple Lipstick just brought out their Summer collection {available July 19-27}, and it’s GORGEOUS as per the usual! These colors are the perfect pinks to add to your collection. Bonus- they’re all gluten free and perfect for those of us with sensitive skin. I seriously cannot brag on these colors enough. I’ve been sharing them on my Instagram pretty much every day.

*They also re-released one of their red faves and renamed it Red Apple Red. You NEED this red in your lipstick routine.*

4.) If you’ve been following my thrown out back drama, you know it’s STILL not all better. But, life goes on and I have to get stuff done. I’ve been using this Arnicare Pain Relieving Gel as a natural alternative to help my back not feel so stiff and sore and I LOVE it. It helps ease my pain enough that I can get back to work, and it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. Which is a big concern when using any sort of topicals. Obviously, I’m not a Dr. but I wanted to share what has been helping me.

pink Indiana tee

5.) Since we’ve been traveling for our Indiana Summer Road Trip, I wanted to rock my state pride with some cute t-shirts. But, I also didn’t want to spend an arm and a leg on shirts. That’s where these super cute ones from Wal Mart come in. I can’t find them online for some reason but I got the pink Home tee from my local Wal Mart and a gray tank top while we were in Fort Wayne.

sidewalk chalk drawings

6.) Fresh sidewalk chalk. Yeah, you heard me. Sidewalk chalk brings me joy. And when it’s freshly opened and sharp, I can’t help but get a little giddy. And for some reason I *have* to draw Peanuts characters. It’s a fun little fact that you now know about me…

7.) Grilling. I legit barely use my kitchen in the Summer. Mainly to prep food and throw together salads. Because every single possible day we can, we’re grilling. I ain’t even sorry. Grilled everything just tastes better. That includes pizza. Give it a try!

8.) Farmers Markets/Farmstands. I don’t even wanna shop at the grocery store any more. We have a farm stand less than a mile away from our house that has the freshest veggies and a booming Farmer’s Market. Can I just move to somewhere where the weather is nice all year long so I can eat fresh fruits and veggies?

devotional book

9.) My book faves this week are good ones. The first one I reviewed for you last week and is a super fun devotional book that you need to pick up if you’re bored trying to teach your kids. It’s definitely NOT your typical devotional. AKA hands on and messy. You’ve been warned.

10.) This next book was a random grab off the shelf at the library. Which usually ends up being the best! I read another one of her books a few years ago {Before I Go} and enjoyed it. And this one was no different. Close Enough to Touch is a heart-wrenching book about a girl who is literally allergic to human touch. And it also has a library in it, and lots of literary references for my fellow bibliophiles.

I can’t believe that I came up with 10 faves so easily this week! What have you been loving lately? I definitely need some new book recommendations.
