I’ve always been one to reach for something quick and effortless to wear, hence why dresses and rompers tend to be my first choice. That’s why when I saw these two gorgeous pieces from StyleWe I couldn’t resist! They’re both perfect for the upcoming holiday festivities; they embrace style, comfort and will definitely be my first option when deciding what next to wear.
Any fellow Alaskan will know the brand XTRATUF, as it is owned by nearly every person I have come across while living in Alaska. Alaska is a bit tougher then most states in the US, and your standard “yellow rain boots” just won’t cut it. With all the slippery, tough rocks and rugged landscape, not many other boots would last long.
When living in Alaska, mostly Southeast Alaska, rain becomes a very familiar thing. One year while living in Ketchikan, we experienced 355 days of rain, leaving only ten days of the year where there was no rain.
And on rainy days like today, the XTRATUF is an “extra” good friend.
As you may be able to tell, our rain boots are put to good use
I know we have all had this problem at one time. You’re getting ready to go shopping or to dinner and when you’re about to walk out the door you realize you left a trail of white deodorant streaks all along your pretty new shirt.
Well this little trick can help you minimize those deodorant stains and take very little time.
All you need is a pair of bathing suit bottoms.
I hope you enjoy this Fun Tip Friday!!
Take you bathing suit bottoms and turn them inside out.
Then rub the inner lining of the bathing suit on your deodorant marks and voila it’s gone!
Today was yet another beautiful day out, therefore we decided it was time to take our 10 year old, 27 pound maine coon mix out for a walk.
It takes him a little while to get going and he can not go too far without getting exhausted. But he is too funny when we take him on walks. He usually walks a ways behind us checking every little thing and stopping at the sound of a branch cracking. But once we get too far away from him he begins to howl until he feels like we are a safe distance from him. I wanted to get close to him when he was howling, so I hid behind a tree as he walked by, calling out to my parents who were too far away for his comfort.
Today, July 17th marks the day of our arrival to my birthplace, Alaska! After a grueling six and a half hour flight from Orlando to Seattle and an overnight stay with our very large cat, followed by another short one and a half flight from Seattle to Ketchikan Alaska, and finishing off with a 45 minute boat ride, we finally made it to our home. Meyers Chuck is a very small community with no gas stations, no roads, no cars, no stores, nothing. All that you will find in Meyers Chuck are the wonderful people that reside here, most of them only during the summer months.
I thought I would share with you our little cabin in the woods.
And keep checking back for more updates on what’s going on in Alaska for the next two weeks.
