Donut Worry, Be Happy

A popular staple on Instagram, blogs and YouTube this summer has been fun and adventurous pool floaties. I received this donut float and laughed, full of excitement. 

What girl doesn't want to lounge in their pool on a donut float? Sounds like a perfect Summer day to me! 

The first time using the donut float by Big Mouth Inc., I wore my beautiful Wildfox Fruit Punch one piece bathing suit, which I scored last year for $2 during the Summer clearance event at Winners. I threw on some Quay Australia Kitti Sunnies in pink and hopped in my parents salt water pool on top of a floating Homer Simpson donut. 

I think next Summer I will have to upgrade and get the pizza floatie, or the swan... They bring so much life into the pool! 




Book Club : The Coincidence of Coconut Cake

I first stumbled upon this novel at my local Costco. It's like a treasure hunt whenever I go there, I bee line right to the book/magazine section. The cover of this book caught my eye; the delicate coconut cake. Upon reading the back, I knew it was a book I would throughly enjoy. Enjoy I did. 

I have been reading the novel for 30 minutes every night before bed since I purchased it. Reading before sleep has been a long time tradition of mine and I love that I am not staring at a TV, computer screen or iPhone screen before I close my eyes and drift off to dreamland. 

This book starts of quickly, and you are immediately hooked on what will happen to "Lou" next. 

First her fiancee cheats on her. 
Then she gets a miserable restaurant review that ruins her restaurant. 
She meets the love of her life. 

Everything that happens ties together in the final two chapters. I was delighted to see that at the back of the book they included the famous coconut cake recipe, which I can't wait to try by the way. 

I don't want to give too much of the book away. I would HIGHLY suggest you pick it up. It was a very addictive book that will have you both laugh and cry while reading it.
