Movies on Netflix - 2019


I still have the DVD in the mail plan for $12 a month as do 4 million other people. I do this because when I see a commercial for a movie on TV, I can immediately put it in my netflix queue and get it in the mail just a few months later. When I tell my friends what movies I'm watching at home, they tell me it's not in the streaming plan. I do switch to the streaming plan for one month every summer to watch Orange is the New Black and Wentworth and see this for myself. I also have Hulu so I feel I have enough to watch and don't need netflix streaming or cable.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks


It's that time of year again as there are some great finds at fabulous prices! I don't have a Nordstrom's credit card so I have to wait to shop the sale on Friday at 12:30pm EST. I've already heard that a lot of people with early access are complaining about their orders being cancelled days after ordering due to products being out of stock so I hope some restocking is happening.  I've found quite a few non-clothing items that are worth a look.

Closet Purge


I'm doing a massive closet purge! I've reached the point where I can't find things in my closet and literally have no room to add more one hanger to it. I was really cut throat in my selection of what pieces need to go, including my sentimental too small cocktail dresses. Because if I don't wear it anymore, why is it in my closet? You don't need to hang on to clothes for memories. So I ordered my 5th bag from Thredup. If you use my link we each get $10. Thredup is an online consignment store. They send you a huge plastic bag that you can fill with clothes with a pre-paid printed postage label on it to return. They will take pictures of your clothes and list them to sale on their site.  It's super easy and simple!

The Most Instagrammable Spots in Miami



Miami Beach is one of my favorite spots for a long weekend getaway! I think April is the best time to go, in March the nights are cool and the water cold. The summer is obviously too hot and humid, fall is hurricane season, hotel prices are sky high in December. Who doesn’t love a piece of the tropics in the US with palm trees, beach, and colorful backdrops. I went on my second Zumba cruise with a friend and we did a girls weekend in Miami before the cruise. We were joking around that when we reach our golden girl stage we should buy a condo together in Miami have for the off season.

Summer Reading List


If you're going through a reading slump a good tip I wanted to share is to pick a time of day that you will read. I get home from work at 5pm so I read 20 pages before I start dinner. That's my regular reading time, but will also read on the bicycle at the gym or on my kindle in bed. If you don't go out for lunch at work, you could find a private corner in your office to read then. Or if you go for a walk during your lunch break listen to a book on audible. I believe that when you add a reading time slot to your calendar, then it will happen. Here's a list of books I've read recently and enjoyed.
