More Fantastic Finds… for the Rest of Us (and Maybe Dad Too!)

Since it is the start of summer vacations here in the USA (and also ongoing in many other places in the northern hemisphere), I have some summer fun for the rest of us.. Dad will enjoy some of these too, so you can get it for him for father’s day.

Make Your Summer an Adventure

and then record it for posterity in this scrapbook style journal that looks so very vintage and cool, and is simply titled Our Adventure Book. I got one of these a few years ago for my daughter and she loved adding her vacation pics, tickets, and stories to it. It is now a family treasure on its own!

Book Nooks always Look Cool

I hope to finish making one of these DIY book nooks with my kids during the summer, and it might end up either on a bookshelf at home or in their rooms at college. Wherever the nook is, the one thing I know is that it is going to look awesome!

Would you pick the Secret Castle or the Diagon Alley Book Nook Kit? I might get one of each for myself or more than one, since I might up end up with none at the end if I just get two;)

Beautify Your Backyard

If you are going to spend your summer staycationing (like I will be doing for most of it this year), then you can spruce up your backyard or patio space and spend some of it there. Use this unique and beautiful Solar Lantern for your outdoors. It is waterproof and comes in two colors so you could get a few of both to enhance your space.

Get Some Games People Play

You can add some new games to your arsenal and have fun playing them with family and friends while relaxing in your decked up backyard this summer with these Conversation Cards kits.

You have many options here for you, including kits for kids, families, best friends, friends, co-workers, couples, grandparents, and new parents too!

As for me, I love such games which allow for having fun while spending time with loved ones, and discovering new things about them in the process! This can make a great Father’s Day gift too..

If you want a physical game, then this Golf Bucket Yard Game is great! Give it to dad for father’s day and dad can have some tee-time too, even while at the beach…

And I am finding these SWOOC outdoor games so very tempting. While my backyard space is limited and I might be able to get just one of these, sharing these with you for you might just love them too. This Giants Kicks Dartboard looks like so much fun, as does this 3 ft * 3 ft Tic Tac Toe Outdoor Game. If you loved the classic Connect 4 game, you will enjoy this giant outdoor version of it as well!!

Skin Care and Beauty from Solawave

And we need to take care of our skin while we get all this summer fun ready for the fam, so pamper yourself with some skin care products, like these from Solawave.

Nourishing Moisturizer

Plumping Peptide Lifting Serum

Probiotic Gel Facial Cleanser

Refreshing Jelly Mist Toner

I loved the feel of both the moisturizer and the serum. They get absorbed quickly into the skin and leave my skin feeling hydrated and without that greasy feel, which is a plus. Also, there is no strong fragrance (which for me is a plus as well). I love that these are alcohol free and vegan too.

My daughter took hold of the mist toner and loves it while I forgot to mention I start my skin care routine (something I started only with this set of items now – never had one before) with the gel cleanser.

A great set of skin care products that are gentle on the skin while making me feel good. And the 25% off currently on for these items should make you feel good!!

The Bookish Memes Five

Today’s book is not one I am currently reading but one I just finished (the day before yesterday, in fact), and am still in a book-hangover over it. Abraham Verghese’s Cutting for Stone quickly gained a spot in my top ten favorite novels of all time the moment I read it. Now that I have read his Covenant of Water, I am wondering if I should just let the two novels share a spot!

The Covenant of Water by Abraham Verghese

Spanning the years 1900 to 1977, The Covenant of Water is set in Kerala, on South India’s Malabar Coast, and follows three generations of a family that suffers a peculiar affliction: in every generation, at least one person dies by drowning—and in Kerala, water is everywhere. At the turn of the century, a twelve-year-old girl from Kerala’s long-existing Christian community, grieving the death of her father, is sent by boat to her wedding, where she will meet her forty-year-old husband for the first time. From this unforgettable new beginning, the young girl—and future matriarch, known as Big Ammachi—will witness unthinkable changes over the span of her extraordinary life, full of joy and triumph as well as hardship and loss, her faith and love the only constants.

June 5th is World Environment Day. Can you suggest a book that has an environmental message or theme? 

Many nonfiction books I have read over the years came to mind and a few fiction ones too. I am picking this picture book though for I think it is a stunning book. A visual treat to the eyes and a sweet narrative that gently gives the message of conservation to its readers.

The book – The Last Rainbow Bird. My review of the book is here.

A look into this book below (from my digital copy of the book)

5 Book Titles that Speak in Complete Sentences

  1. Lots of great ideas here for Father’s Day. I’ve always had a hard time finding gifts for my father. You’ve got some great items listed here.

  2. I have heard such great things about The Covenant of Water. I need to go back and read Cutting For Stone. I tried listening to the audiobook, and while I loved the narrator’s voice, I had trouble staying focused. I do much better with print when it comes to longer books, I think. I do think I would like both though. I hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you..I still cannot do audiobooks, and prefer reading books of all lengths for myself 🙂 Verghese’s writing left me astounded and with that book-hangover with each of these two books!! Wishing you a wonderful weekend as well

  3. I love all the little gift along with amazing books to share for father day’ I see a couple of items that I want to share with my dad as well
