Summer in New York
Page Turning Summer Reads

Hey guys! Summer is here, actually officially Friday. Which means it’s incredibly hot in South Florida and we get a lot of rain. I still love this season because I’m usually a lot more social.

I did this post way back, sharing tips to sale on eBay. I currently have another round of eBay going on after my last decluttering session, just in time for the new season and I did pretty well the first week. The tips I shared in 2014 are still accurate. Now that I know more what I like and actually wear, that’s why I needed to do another round. For example, I had a lot of sunglasses and usually alternate between the same 5 pairs, so I parted ways with the rest. I had three Quay sunglasses and was pleasantly surprised to see that they did really well on eBay. I also let go of a few jeans, shorts, sneakers and bags. This is a reminder that this is a great time reevaluate what you have and need.

Earlier this year however I did get a few new stuff, including the dress above. It was sold out but recently came back in all colors. I still love it and plan on taking it with me to San Francisco. It will look cute with my white sneakers, a similar look for less are these adorable Keds.

My main goal this Summer though is to keep the shopping to a minimum and so far so good. That’s why I have not been doing shopping posts, I’m sure like me you all have all the clothes that one could possibly need. Also I often end up buying items because I found them while researching for a post. I don’t want to encourage behaviors that I’m trying to curb myself. I still have a shopping budget but I’m currently saving it for a splurge later this year. I’ve loved my Gucci slides so much that I really want a regular version, not sure if I’ll go through with the purchase, I may change my mind after a couple months.

I’ve been so tempted lately to buy this dress or that bag but I keep reminding myself that this impulse is not good. That’s how I end up with packages coming on a weekly basis before. I’m really trying to break this habit and I don’t want this blog to be about encouraging mindless consumerism. Buying something you really like or need is totally ok but I feel like it shouldn’t be a weekly thing. I’m good with getting one non essential monthly.

I say I wouldn’t give in to any true crime podcast but here we are. I started listening to “To Live and Die in LA” and I am hooked.

I just finished reading The Flatshare, it is the perfect Summer read. Isn’t the cover adorable? I love when a book has a cute cover.

I’m finally catching up to the latest episodes of Patriot Act, still so funny and most of all informative.
