I hope your week has gone well! I’ve been busy doing lots of behind the scene business work this week while we are on summer break, plus I’m trying to exercise at the track more. I shared on Instagram that I’m trying to start the couch to 5K program. My dream is to run a 5K with my husband, time will tell if I’m able. 🙂 I have to watch how hard I push myself with exercising because I can go into an adrenal slump if I’m not careful.

Modest Maxi Skirt with a feminine gray top

I had been wanting a striped coral or pink skirt for awhile, when I realized I had this in my Deborah & Co. inventory! I grabbed it, and now there is only one size small left in stock and then I’ll be totally sold out of this skirt! It’s nice having a basement full of inventory. One Sunday morning I really needed a new modest layering cami to match my outfit and I ran downstairs and grabbed one. A little store at home! 🙂


I recently tried a different skincare line that a company sent me in the mail to try. My face broke out and I’ve not recovered. I’m thankful for L’BRI and how gentle yet cleansing it is. It’s frustrating to be in your 30’s and still break out! I need to grab some more cleanser from L’BRI, though today only the deep pore cleanser, shampoo and conditioner is on sale and I’m almost out!

Using a small scarf to tie in your hair is a fun look!

  1. Thanks for hosting, Caroline! Your hair looks gorgeous…how did you do that braid? Is it just a french braid or some sort of twist? I need more pretty pulled back hairstyles like that and am always looking for inspiration! 🙂

  2. I did the Couch to 5k program last fall and ran my first 5k on Christmas Eve!! If I can do it, anyone can! I know you’ll succeed Caroline! Have fun!

  3. I LOVE this look. So fresh. I especially love the scarf; I wear head coverings to church so this look is perfect. I am with you on the adult acne, I’m 29 and still struggling. What’s funny is that I think I struggle with it more now than I did as a teenager, what in the world?!

  4. I had bad acne as a teen. In my twenties, after having babies, my skin grew awful. Now at 31, I have serious inflammation. Along with acne, my face is very red and scaly, which I presume is rosacea. Thehumbledhomemaker recently had a post about acne, if you’re interested in reading. I know how frustrating it is. While I don’t have answers yet, I’m going to be doing the Gaps into diet. You may not need that, but I believe diet is a big factor, whether it’s also triggered by hormones or not. I guess I’m not very helpful, since I’m still trying to figure mine out! lol
