My favorites of the month ; August

I love to watch vlogs on youtube and something I always found an interesting topic is favorites of the month.
So I decided to do it on my blog.
I’m going to mention 10 things I loved this month for myself and for the kids.

Here they go;

1 My fit flops.
These are my number one favorite. I have the ones from AVON. I really love them. I love that they look a bit dressy and have a flower on them. I’ve had them on almost every day and walked in them a lot and I lost about 4 kgs in three weeks. My legs really slimmed down and I can now fit back into pants I used to wear more than ten years ago. Wonderful !

2 My sunglasses.
I got them from Claire’s on sale on the airport.
I love the sparkly stones on the side of them and wore them a lot last month as we had quite some sun.

3 My leopard print bag and wallet.
The brand is Lipsy but they are especially made for AVON. I ‘m crazy about leaopard prints and hot pink so I find this combo ‘the bomb’ I absolutely love them.

4 My wide, leather belts.
I bought them on the car boot sale for 1 euro each.
I love this type to wear with jeans and love the sparkly stones.

5 My black blouse.
(Sorry I have no pic at the moment) I bought it in St Vincents (thrift store). It's from Awear. I just love the style. I love how they are long enough to cover my stomach and they are black so they’re ‘slimming down.’

6 My Audi
I love having a big automatic car where the whole family can fit in properly and I love actually driving in it. I got this thanks to my sweet and generous mother.

7 Trike
I bought this for Nevaeh and just love it. Got it in Cheeverstown (Thriftstore) I always saw people walking with trikes and I kind of envied them. I really wanted one but they were so expensive new so I was really happy that I found a used one for 10 euro. Nevaeh loves being pushed while sitting in it and it somehow was a good exercise for my legs used in combination with the fit flops.

8 Lightweight Stroller
I got a simple stroller in V&D in the Netherlands where I was on a holiday. I got it to put Nevaeh in and travel back to Ireland with her and my luggage. It wasn’t easy but it worked.
And I’ve used it every day for three weeks after we came back. I wasn’t wild about the colour but it was just handy. I’ve walked a lot while pushing Nevaeh in this stroller.

9 Toddler Slide
I got this last year in Dunnes Stores for Yovannah. Nevaeh is big enough for it this year and loves it.
I put it inside when we were on our own in the house and she kept going on it.
I put it in the front yard this week and she, Yovannah and Ixora are having a great time with it when the weather is good.

10 Mineral water
As last favourite I want to mention; big bottles of mineral water.
They are actually my ‘all time’ favourite because I try to drink a lot of water because it is supposed to help with weight loss and it is just healthy. It’s also important on warm days to stay hydrated.
I'm getting these big ones at the Aldi for about 1,29. I also used it for making Nevaehs tea less warm.

These were ten of my favorites for the month of August.

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Nevaehs Summer Bucket list

Unfortunately, it seems that this year the Autumn weather has started earlier than last year. And so I finally wanted to write a blog post to share Nevaehs Summer Bucket list with you.
This Summer, we mostly stayed in the Netherlands. We only went to Germany to visit Moviepark Germany for two days. At the beginning of the break, the girls entertained themselves by playing games and watching youtube video’s on their tablets and laptop. This bothered me a bit, so one evening I called them all together to sit down and told them to make a bucketlist for the Summer. The first one to finish was allowed to have the last bit of ice cream. Nevaeh can already write a little bit but I told her that she could draw instead. So she made a bucketlist with 10 items on it. The actual bucket list got lost somewhere but we memorized what was on it and I’m glad to say that she has been able to do all the items on it.
So here is Nevaehs Summer Bucket List.
