Tuesday Turn About #159 Holding On To Summer

This week is all about holding on to summer! At this week’s party, I am featuring creative inspiration for the summer season. Tuesday Turn About #159.

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start!

Yesterday, my daughter saw a post from UCONN that classes begin in 50 days. Time seems to be flying by! Before you know it, we will be thinking about heading back to school and getting ready for fall. Until then, I am holding tight on to summer and will do my best to make the most of every day.

Today I am excited to share some amazing features that will inspire you to hold on to summer too!

Check out last week’s link party for more inspiration!

Weekly Household Tip

Do you enjoy eating outside during the summer months? I do, but sometimes can be bothered by pesky flies. I recently learned a fantastic tip to deter those flies and I am excited to share it with you!

Soak a piece of lemon in white vinegar. Then, take the piece of lemon and run it along the edge of the plate. Flies do not like the smell and will leave you alone. So clever!

Weekly Blogging Tip

If you haven’t created a branded email address, today may just be the day to do it!

A branded email address (I.e., “[email protected]) not only helps communicate to affiliates and sponsors that you are an established business, but it also helps with deliverability of your newsletters.

Check with your domain provider for an inexpensive way to create your branded email address. It’s really quite easy!
