Top Links: July

And just like that, there are only 2 weeks of summer left…and honestly? I’m so sad to see it go.

This one was meant to be slower than past summers. No big vacations, more time spent at home, and even Braun and I skipped major traveling.

But it was just as busy (maybe even more?). And seriously twice as fun.

We’ve been to family reunions, cabins in the mountains, out on the Razr…we’ve been busy!

BRAUN’S SUNGLASSES | POLO | SHORTS | MY SUNGLASSES | SKIRT | SANDALS | ROSE GOLD APPLE WATCH

Braun and I even hung out with 25 Million bees and lived to tell the tale! Seriously, this was a moment that required me to be very brave! But with everything that’s been going on with the Nordstrom Sale to summer specials – this month has been BUSY!

SELF TANNER | GLOVE

This month I shared with you how to achieve the perfect summer glow without spending all your time in the sun. The main things? It’s gotta be streak-free and easy to do. So I did my homework and I tried a ton of brands. I put them in a slider below but the one I absolutely fell in love with is this one from Jergens. Skipping my normal routine and using a glove helped give me a bullet-proof faux glow.

You guys went nuts over Braun’s 4th of July look this year! From patriotic Chucks to his flag-print Apple watch band, this guy represents! I wasn’t able to find a link for his flag-pocket polo but it’s Travis Matthew. This is the ultimate hip-dad brand and Braun rocks it all the time! If you want to check it out, Nordstrom Rack has an awesome selection and even more awesome prices!

I’ve had a lot of questions lately on doggie items and wanted to let you know that I put everything in a blog post a while back and you can shop the slider below!

SKIRT | SHOES | TOP

I got a ton of questions about Emery’s look from our back-to-school post about my top 5 tips for BTS shopping! Really, we just shop for basics. It really is easier than shopping for trendy items that are out of stock quickly and are out of style immediately after.

Another popular set of links were the ones included in my blog post reviewing the top-recommended lipsticks that are affordable ($10 and under). I found some I absolutely love and I’m  so glad so many of you loved them!

LOVER | LOYALIST | DREAMER | SELF STARTER | INSPIRER

Out of all the ones I tried, SuperStay by Maybelline took top honors! It’s a thick formula that almost feels rubbery, but not in a bad or uncomfortable way, it’s just sort of springy. That doesn’t stop it from going on nicely, and once it’s on, it’s not going anywhere. I know every liquid promises stay-all-day wear, and most of them deliver, but this one is budge-proof in a way that the others just aren’t.

BAPTISTE | AMIKA

And last but not least, I shared my favorite dry shampoos with you guys and not surprisingly, you’re already huge fans!

But if none of the links you’re looking for are on this list, don’t worry. Last Sunday I spent a good amount of time and compiled ALL the links that you guys asked for into one blog post (it’s MASSIVE!) and I know if you can’t find what you are looking for on this post, you will most definitely find it on this blog post HERE.

So check em out and then check out the list below of this month’s TOP links! We have a few of the usual suspects (things you guys can’t get enough of) and I was pleasantly surprised to see quite a few NEW ONES! I think you guys are finally embracing summer! Enjoy!

WOMEN RACERBACK SPORTS BRAS - MEDIUM IMPACT WORKOUT GYM ACTIVEWEAR BRA
MIRITY
I'm not surprised AT ALL that this bra is back up at #1! These bad boys are the real deal. They hold your money maker's in place just as well as an expensive Lululemon bra, come equipped with removable padding, and are priced at a whopping $6! And you obviously know this because this is it's 7th time gracing the top links list this year!

ACNE HEALING PIMPLE PATCH
RAEL
Coming in HOT at #2 - the BRAND NEW pimple patches I found. For those of you with a little more self-control than me when it comes to pimple popping + zit picking, this product is for you! These little magic pimple patches suck out all the crap and junk right out of your zits making them smaller and less frightening in no time. Perfect for those days when a big, angry, whitehead just doesn't go with your outfit. (and soooo much better than the other brands)

WHY?: OVER 1,111 ANSWERS TO EVERYTHING
NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC KIDS
Why do you need this book? The answer is inside. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good mystery. But I'll keep you in the dark no longer - this book is the stuff of little boy dreams. Dash can sit with this book for HOURS and still not get through the whole thing. It's fascinating, answers sooo may questions, and just keeps his curious mind that much more curious. Next time your kids ask "why?" just toss them this book.

WORKOUT TANKTOPS FOR WOMEN
ICYZONE
Have you ever loved a shirt so much you snagged it in every color? Seems like the good people at Amazon anticipated you might do that with this cute, comfy tank so they made it a 3-pack for you! Seriously three good muscle tanks in the best colors for less than $25? That's gonna be a yes from me! So glad I discovered these. About a million fun color options too!

CREPE MAKER
NEW HOUSE KITCHEN
I purchased my one and only crepe maker on April 29th, 2015. I often draw a blank on my wedding anniversary, but I remember my crepe-versary so I think that should tell you all you need to know. We seriously use this all the time and even after 4+ years it's still going strong! If crepes aren't your jam, I'm so sorry for your loss, but this is also perfect for warming up tortillas on the go too. I even wrote a blog post about it! https://tarathueson.com/gluten-and-dairy-free-crepes/

BRAUN'S FAVORITE T-SHIRT (AND OBVIOUSLY YOURS AS WELL)
NEXT LEVEL
Ok, I'm starting to think that none of the men in your lives had any shirts before I shared this one! It used to be that your man could finally wear matching shirts with 9,000 other guys of wives who bought this shirt when I originally posted it, but now there are about 21,000 MORE of you who tried but the dang thing sold out. Well, good news, the shirt that broke the internet faster than a Kardashian childbirth is BACK! This shirt is officially restocked! Snag one before these bad boys sell out again. *Hot man bod not included*

GLASS SEED BEADS, SMALL PONY BEADS ASSORTED KIT WITH ORGANIZER BOX FOR JEWELRY MAKING
MANDALA CRAFTS
My girls and I can't get enough of these beads - and you guys can't either! We've been on a bracelet-making kick since we got these. We've been sporting beaded bracelets all summer and my girls aren't slowing down! It's such a small investment and has been a really incredible activity for us to do altogether!

UNIVERSAL AIR VENT MAGNETIC PHONE CAR MOUNT HOLDER WITH FAST SWIFT-SNAP TECHNOLOGY
WIZGEAR
You guys specifically asked for a car phone mount that didn't have to stick to the dash and when 22,000 people give something a big, fat, thumbs up, you don't ask questions, you just buy it. I have two tried and true car magnets.. one has a sticky back and one attaches to the vents! The vent one is THIS ONE! Honestly, the reviews speak for themselves - magnet fits easily on the back of a phone or tablet and keeps em' in place even if you're driving with a brake lover. The best for practicing safety by staying hands-free!

5 BIKE BICYCLE FLOOR PARKING STORAGE STAND
SIMPLE HOUSEWARE
What's that you say? Do you want to go on a nice family bike ride? Sure, let me just untangle the pile of metal and rubber taking up valuable space in our garage and retrieve said bike. Why are bikes so annoying to store?! So bulky, so awkwardly shaped, it can make keeping them accessible without taking too much prime garage real estate almost impossible! This bike rack though is perfect! Holds 5 bikes with ease, keeps them all upright, and out of the way. And at $35 it's too cheap not to try!

LULU DUPE!!! YOGA JOGGER CAPRIS - WOMEN’S LOUNGE ACTIVE HAREM SWEAT PANTS WITH POCKETS
MATYMATS
Once upon a time, I shared a massive Lululemon dupe haul and uncovered the best wannabes of everyone's favorite Lulu classics! This pair was by FAR one of the favorites - so much so that when they restocked in early June, you guys sold them out AGAIN! The waistband is thick and reinforced, the material is super light, and best of all...I'm not breaking the bank (or robbing one) to pay for them! Can I get an amen?! I'm loving this pant and at less than $30, I'm loving the price even more!
