STOPPED ME IN MY SCROLL

Look at this very pretty bedroom from the Instagram account of Home On Fern Hill.

It’s pure blue and white perfection and I love everything about it! That sweet pup is pretty cute too.

Pamela’s entire feed is filled with so much beautiful home decor, especially blue and white. Give her a follow!

OUTFIT INSPIRATION

Blue and white is a classic summer combo! Wearing these colors represents a breezy, casual kind of summer vibe that I just love.

The 3/4 length sleeves are great for not showing more arm that I may want to, but the cotton blend of this shirt is cool enough for the summer.

It’s so simple to put together an outfit like this and dress it up or down with accessories.

WHAT I’M WATCHING OR READING

Are you a Downton Abby fan? I sure am.

Four of us watched the new movie this week and I’m so sorry to say that we were all pretty disappointed in it. All of the main characters were there, but we just didn’t feel like the storyline was very good and the acting seemed forced and not natural. Have you watched it?

RECENT PURCHASE THAT I LOVE

Mosquitos – UGH. If they’re a problem when you try to enjoy the outdoors, you might want to give this gizmo a try.

It works like a charm, has over 9900 four star ratings, is rechargeable, refillable and is very affordable. We love it!

ON THE HOME FRONT

I’ve spent the entire past week at my happy place with my family. Every summer we rent an oceanfront 5 br/4 bath home at N. Topsail Beach, NC and IT IS AMAZING!

You may know that we’ve owned a couple of condos here, but decided to sell a few years ago. I miss the idea of owning a place at the beach, but I don’t miss stressing over beach erosion, every single hurricane that comes along and feeling like I have to drive four hours to be there every other weekend.

Good, clean, well maintained and up to date beach houses can be hard to find and renting one that isn’t as great as advertised can ruin a vacation. So, if you’re in the market for a rental house for a beach vacation, this one is great. It’s clean, the interiors are very pretty, it’s very well maintained and the rental company has been very responsive to the couple of issues we’ve had over the last few years.

  1. I want to live at Home on Fern Hill!!! It’s so perfect. Thank you so much for sharing Suzy. I always look forward to your posts.

  2. I have to say, I did enjoy the new Downton movie. It was light, refreshing, and moved the family forward in time. The scenery was beautiful! I will always be a Downton fan.

  3. What a great beach house! I’ve been away from your blog for a while Suzy (but I’m resubscribed!), and didn’t realize you sold your condo. Many years we looked but never pulled the trigger on a second home at the beach (thank goodness, as we’ve moved primary residences 3X in 3 years, long story, but Goldilocks is happy now). I put that mosquito machine on my Amazon shopping list, thanks! Hope your getting situated at home again was without stress.
