Lately with Lynda

Happy Friday!  While this isn’t what I’ve been up to this past week, I thought I’d take the time now just to highlight a few things from my recent trip to Philly and NYC.  Enjoy!

May Favorites

It’s so weird to me that it’s already June! I felt like May went by so quickly, but I’m excited for the summer weather to come. Here’s a quick run down of my favorites from May.

  1. Jessica Simpson Emerita Sandals2015-06-02 17.50.10

I found these heels on sale at Belk, and couldn’t pass them up since I needed an open-toed heel for the wedding I was attending. They were surprisingly comfortable to wear for hours and I can see myself wearing them with many other outfits moving into the summer season.

  1. Madewell Stitchtake Dressstitchtake1

If you’ve seen my last post, you already know I love this dress. I’ve only had it for not even two weeks down and I’ve worn it 3 times. I know I’ll continue to love this easy dress for quite some time.

  1. Trader Joe’s Salt Water Taffy2015-05-13 14.24.59

I really do love saltwater taffy, and Trader Joe’s is one of the only places I can find it at a reasonable price. All of their variety flavors are delicious and they always have it in stock.

  1. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania2015-05-22 11.43.57

This was my first visit to Philly and I really did enjoy it. The city is very walkable, and all of their shopping areas are so pretty. I would definitely recommend visiting if you get a chance, and I can’t wait to go back!

  1. Madewell Zip Transport Tote2015-06-02 17.47.03

This bag was perfect for traveling. While I love my transport tote and I carry that around everywhere, this bag was the perfect carry on size, and it made me feel better that it zipped up. It was great to carry around to ensure the safety of all my things while I distracted myself with all the sights I was seeing.

  1. Sun Bum Sunscreen Spray2015-05-13 08.28.20

I mentioned this sunscreen recently, but I really did love this stuff this past month. I used it a lot while I was traveling because I spent a lot of time outside walking around in the sun. It smells great, doesn’t leave you feeling sticky at all, and legitimately works, and you can’t go wrong with that.

  1. Crispy M&M’s2015-05-26 11.01.30

Michael and I picked some of these up at the M&M’s store in Times Square, and I didn’t even realize they were back! I’ve always loved the crispy M&M’s and I’m excited that I can enjoy them again!

  1. New York City2015-05-25 02.01.12

I mean, do I even have to say why this was a favorite of mine this past month? I’ll just leave it at that.

  1. Alex Studio June Subscription2015-06-02 17.42.44

Me and my planner addiction really enjoyed the surprise set of stickers and extras from The Alex Studio. It’s such a cute idea to have wacky holidays for each day of the month (I love that stuff!), and now I have a reason to buy donuts this Friday.

  1. Midtown Nail Spa

This nail place in North Hills will definitely be a place I go back to in the future. Their staff was very friendly, and I went with Ashley and we both had an awesome time. The price was also comparable to many other nail salons in the area, but they really cared about keeping friends with friends (we’ve been to places that separate you…not ok!).

And now I’m going to get myself excited for all the things to come in June!

Bows and Arrows,

Lynda
