i’ve learned over the years people either love or hate root beer floats, there is no IN BETWEEN. I happen to be one of those people who LOVES them. I loved going to RESTAURANTS as a kid and ordering the old-fashioned glass bottle root beers thinking I was so cool. now as an adult i’m excited to try this ‘boozy  maple ice cream root beer float’ – looks so good!

{ read the september issues }

top fashion magazines including the it magazine, vogue, release their september issues in august. the september issues are so big because september is when new york fashion week happens. this is also the time where we shift from spring/summer to fall/winter fashions and trends. who do you y’all think will grace the cover of vogues september issue this year?

if you haven’t already noticed all summer sales are in full swing including all summer decor, clothing and swim suits! you’ll start to see more and more fall clothing arrive at your favorite stores. some stores even have pre fall sales so take full advantage of those! i know it’s hard to buy a heavier weight fall sweater when it’s 100 degrees outside but i wouldn’t pass on anything you ABSOLUTELY love as it will sell out and plus the fall weather will be here soon!
