May Haul + Cooking Tips

I thought I slowed down a lot in shopping lately as this month has just been a continuation of sandal shopping from last month and summer dress shopping from Amazon, Old Navy, and Target BUT my favorite cousin went to Paris and offered me the chance to buy a bag and I couldn't resist since the dollar is so strong now.  Top:  Shein Solid Asymmetrical Top .
