Beach Hat by Barbara Cobb Sun Hats / My Pink One Shoulder Suit / Her Cabana Life Swim Set (get 20% off all Cabana Life with code Wood20)

Hello, from GORGEOUS St. Lucia!  Have you ever been on vacation and immediately been so relaxed you just can’t bring yourself to do a few things you’ve planned?  Well, that is how we feel here in St. Lucia!  This post should have gone out the day after we arrived but I’ve been so relaxed just enjoying the views and sweet family time!

I did want to pop in and officially put up my Out of Office virtual sign.  We are so happy to be here enjoying family time before our oldest goes to college in a few weeks.  I am so grateful to Inspirato for working out all the details on this trip after we had to postpone it for three weeks due to a family illness and then American Airlines delayed our flight so that we wouldn’t make the connection!  You can learn more about Inspirato here.  (Note that the giveaway is over but they do have more specials!)  We love being members and appreciate all they do to make travel seamless and truly a vacation!

I’ll be back mid next week with some great new content including What I Wore in St. Lucia, Tips on Moving your First Child to College and more.  If you have tips you’d like to share, I’d love to include them in this round up!  In the mean time, you can see all we are doing on my Instagram Stories.  My St. Lucia packing list is a great list for end of summer style and vacations.  So many items are now on sale including my suit above and with WOOD20 you receive 20% off at Cabana Life including my daughter’s suit/rash guard combo and more.  I love this brand!

Due to family circumstances, I’ve not done as many posts on the Nordstrom Sale this year but it is still going on.  Visit these posts to find my favorite items from the #Nsale.

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

It’s easy to get in a routine when it comes to make up.  My need for a new concealer lead me back to an old favorite and the discovery of some new products from Cle de Peau.

For years, I used the cult favorite concealer from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go -o for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, I feel like those dark circles have returned!
