Two weeks ago I sorta participated in Ali Edwards-Week In The Life project. I started a day late and didn't always take a lot of pictures each day but it was a dip in the week-in-the-life style of capturing everyday photos pool.  All taken with my Iphone unless otherwise noted.

Watermelon Juice Mocktail

Here's a refreshing and lightly sweet mock-tail that can be enjoyed any time of the day.

Have you tried cold pressed watermelon juice? It's like popping a straw into a watermelon but much less work. I used WTR MLN WTR brand (Beyonce is an investor!). It's great right out of the bottle but I mixed mine with some lime flavored seltzer and added lots of ice and a wedge of lemon (I didn't have any limes). 
The juice is full of electrolytes and antioxidants so this is a drink that will make you feel better.   Cheers!

{Get Thrifty} Thursday

 I had a pretty very productive thrifting day last week.  I didn't have anything special in mind when I went shopping but I perused the home goods section first and came up empty handed.  Then I hit up the clothing section. My Goodwill has really stepped it and reorganized the store.  The clothes are now displayed by size, not just color!  Here's what I came home with.
These four tops.  Two are my beloved LOFT t-shirts (the pink one and the white one).  The striped shirt is Old Navy and the navy polka dotted pop over is from J Crew.  I thought it was black and white until Miss High School pointed out that it was navy. Even better!
 I really lucked out in the workout clothing department!   These capri leggings are from Athleta and they have pockets on the sides for my phone and also a little zipper compartment in the back waistband.  The top is by Kyodan.
 This purple tank is also Athleta and the pants still have the tag on them (original price $39.99).
Long sleeve pink top and another cute Athleta workout tank. Now I have no excuse not to workout or go to yoga. I spent $40 total which is only a penny more than the original price of the above pants!!
Have you thrifted any good stuff lately?
