Weekly Roundup

Happy Friday, friends! We have reached that hazy part of summer where it isn’t quite yet fall, but it doesn’t feel like summer anymore. Can you relate? It has started cooling off enough that swimming at the lake is pretty much done, but I am not ready for pumpkins yet. I will take an apple cider doughnut, though! 😉 We have what looks to be a pretty lazy weekend ahead, which is a nice change of pace after feeling like the weekends have been nonstop the past few months. Before I sign off, I am sharing my weekly roundup and the best sales happening below.

Pink Lily Boutique

Yesterday I shared a try on of new items from the Pink Lily Boutique fall launch! It is saved to my highlights tab if you missed it! I have been loving incorporating sweaters and layering pieces back into my wardrobe. I have a cardigan below that is a dead ringer for this super popular one in terms of fabric and feel. It is the first cardigan I have found that compares in terms of quality, and it is less than half the price! All other items are linked below!

Honey Lavender Latte

On Monday I shared a recipe for a honey lavender latte! I have a similar recipe I shared last year, but this one replaced sugar with honey for that extra bit of flavor. If lavender lattes are your thing (how could they not be!?) this recipe is for you!

Digital Box Tops

This may be one of my favorite new finds. Box Tops have gone digital, and you can now redeem them right from your phone! You can head to this post to see all of the details and learn how to start digitally uploading yourself!

Wrap and Cuff Bracelets

This isn’t the first time I have talked about these bracelets, but I have literally been wearing them every single day! The one pictured below is a cuff, but I have shared the wraps as well. They are so versatile and come in SO many styles and colors!

One Dress Multiple Ways

This dress has been one of my top selling items of all time. So, I was super excited to team up with a group of ladies to share different ways to style it. I layered it with this soft chambray top, and you can never go wrong with these slip on shoes! We have a flash giveaway going on (it ends tonight!) for an Amazon gift card. Head to my Instagram to enter, and to see how the rest of the ladies styled it!

Make At Home Honey Lavender Latte!

It is already August, and as much as we try to fight it, that means that fall is right around the corner! I have been drinking lots of black coffee and cold brews from Cameron’s Coffee this summer. But when the mornings start cooling off and the days get shorter, I always go back to my beloved lattes! One of my absolute favorite drinks this year has become a honey lavender latte. Lavender offers such a unique and wonderful flavor, and who doesn’t love honey!? I have found a local coffee shop that brews one that I love, but I am continuing to work on spending less on buying coffee out (see my no spend month here!) and figuring out how to brew fun drinks at home!

I decided to make my own honey lavender latte at home, and it is surprisingly easy and delicious! The honey lavender syrup is the most time consuming part of the process, but aside from having to wait for it to be done, it is so easy to make! I based it off of my original lavender simple syrup recipe that I shared in this post.

To make this recipe, I have been using the Kona blend from Cameron’s Coffee. It is a medium-dark roast and has a smooth, mellow flavor that’s delicious on its own, but also makes a perfect base for any additions. Keep reading for the recipe and how to make your own at home!

Honey Lavender Syrup

  • 1 cup honey
  • 2/3 cups water
  • 1/3 cup dried lavender

  1. Bring the water and honey to a simmer over medium to high heat. Stir often to ensure it blends evenly.
  2. Add lavender once water/honey mixture is simmering and continue for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and cover with glass lid. Let sit overnight.
  4. Strain over mesh sieve in the morning and store in the refrigerator.

Honey Lavender Latte

To make my lattes, I use a Ninja Coffee bar. If you do not have one, you can simply reduce the amount of water in your coffee pot to reflect how much you want to be able to pour in your cup!

 

  1. Pour one tablespoon (or more, depending on your preference) into a coffee mug.
  2. Add two large scoops of Cameron’s Coffee Kona Blend grounds to the Ninja Coffee Bar. Press the button to brew a specialty drink. Again, if you do not have a Ninja, add a larger amount of grounds and less water to have a result more like espresso.
  3. Fill a separate mug half full with your milk of choice. I typically use almond milk. Heat your milk so that it is HOT.
  4. Pour the milk over your syrup and espresso.
  5. Using the frother on the Ninja Coffee Bar, froth your drink for 30 seconds. Again, if you do not have this machine, you can purchase a cheap frother like this one!
  6. Drizzle honey over the top of your latte and garnish with dried lavender and enjoy!

If you prefer iced lattes, follow this same recipe but fill a glass with ice and do not heat the milk. Enjoy!
