Flashback Friday – Faves On Friday

Sometimes you’ll laugh, sometimes you’ll cry
Life never tells us, the when’s or why’s
When you’ve got friends, to wish you well
You’ll find your point when, you will exhale (yeah, yeah, say)

HAPPY HAPPY FRIDAY,
Hey there pretties, so happy today. It’s LEO season baby and you know what that means – vacation!!! Short post today, flashback to my 50th birthday celebration- my bday is Monday – woot woot. These beautiful ladies made my day so fab, we laughed and cried and laughed some more. The love was overwhelming and they loved each other even though some had met for the first time that day! My life is sweeter because of these ladies. Life can get crazy but with friends, we can get through the hard times and cherish the good times. When your way gets dicey, flashback to good times with your girls!

I will post just a bit but for the most part, I will be somewhat out of pocket next week. Remember I posted about really disconnecting when vacationing and I am seriously taking this advice to heart, but when I get back I will have loads of pics.

Make it the best weekend ever! Love y’all lots!

Chub Rub, Yeah It’s A Thing

robincharmagne-wearing-dresses

Hi Pretties,
Ooooweee, 4 days and counting y’all then I’m funning and sunning. If you’ve been around robincharmagne for a minute, then you know in my OOTDs, I don’t wear dresses very often. There’s a reason for that…let’s talk about the dreaded chub rub. Have you heard of it? Well let me tell you, if you’re a chubby girl with an extra helping of thighs, then you know about that fire. See chub rub is when your thighs rub together when you walk. Uh huh, ain’t that some ish. So to avoid it, I just forgo dresses most of the time in favor of jeans. But when I do wear a dress, chub rub is a pain. I posted this lovely floral dress on Instagram and I really love it for vacation but dang that rubbing….

So today I’m sharing some tips for making that fire in the thighs burn out, including my favorite choice!

Faves On Friday

faves-on-friday-robincharmagne

Happy Friday,
This week wasn’t terribly busy at work but family stuff took up most of my time this week. But for some reason I’m feeling super tired, so some R&R is on the agenda with just a couple of fun things sprinkled here and there. Today’s Faves On Friday are a few good things from around the web, including my favorite salad!

1 – If you like to read, here’s a fun way to find your next book
2 – The anchor symbol is everywhere, loving this, so cool for a cookout and this, give this to your anchor
3 – Are you getting ready to take a break and hit the road or grabbing a jet plane? Then you need to read 6 ways to really disconnect on vacation. Take the obligatory we’re leaving or we’ve arrived selfies, we love those
4 – I’m not a huge fan of salads, I mean I eat them but not a fave, except this one. If it’s on the menu, I order it – should learn how to make it
5 – Crafters and Planners are going crazy for the Raskog cart from IKEA, price isn’t bad either

Staycation For The Kiddos – Let’s Go

Hi pretties,
Summer is in full force. The kids are out of school and you want to keep them happy and occupied. Vacations for the whole family can be expensive and time-consuming to plan. But, you don’t have to break the bank to show your kids a good time. Today I’ve gathered 5 ideas for fun kid friendly staycations!

Staycation-ideas-for-the-kiddos-on-robincharmagne

Most of these options should be available in your town, at a nominal cost. Water parks are a no-brainer if you live in a hot weather state, 90 degree days are perfect for a trip to the water park. These sites are not only very entertaining but also educational, as the zoo and state parks have guides who provide a wealth of information and fun facts for the kids. Train rides are so nostalgic and quite scenic, the kids will love this mode of transportation. The backyard movie is my favorite so easy to do with a sheet and a projector, just hook up the projector to your computer and viola you have a movie. Just add popcorn and you’re ready for a night of laughs. Invite friends over for even more fun!

How are you entertaining the kiddos this summer?
