Aloha, from Hawaii… Well maybe not Hawaii, but Close Enough

I was asked to participate in the #AlohaYourSenses campaign, sponsored by Hawaiian Tropic® at Walgreens.

Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

With the Memorial Day Holiday coming up, I am dreaming of The Tropics! Every holiday my family spends the weekend at our lake house full of boats, swimming, grilling, quality time and of course SUN! The Memorial Day weekend is a time for me to relax, take a breath and just enjoy the outdoors.  My idea of the perfect, “getaway” is laying by the pool or the lake with a glass of tea or lemonade, listening to my favorite tunes on my iPod, watching the boats go by and the smell of burgers and hotdogs on the grill;  there really is nothing better! A few years back, I had a few pre-cancerous moles removed and being the sun goddess I am,  I knew I had to make sure to wear sunscreen to not only protect, but also pamper my skin,  due to my past history.Read More

Memorial Day Party Ready – It’s a POM POM Party!

Piper Java Dress / Rebecca Minkoff ‘Greyson’ Sandal / Ray Ban Blue Mirror Aviators / Pineapple Pitcher / Jord Wood Watch

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell

Memorial Day is right around the corner and I wanted to do a quick post on some outfit inspiration.  This year my family and I are spending Memorial Day weekend at our Lake House, just spending quality together as a family.  This is my absolute most favorite thing to do! I love the beach too, but there is something about the lake and just sleeping in, eating lots and lots of great food cooked on the grill and sharing laughs with the ones you love! I have found over the years, it’s not about what you are doing but who you are with! What are your plans for holiday?!?!Read More

Aging Gracefully

Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask / Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream


As many of you know, I am a HUGE makeup fan and part time freelance makeup artist.  There is rarely a day that I go without something on my skin.  Okay,  maybe I never even go a full day with nothing on my skin.  Needless to say, my face never gets a long break to “breath.”  Equally as important as makeup is to me, is moisturizer and my skincare regime.  I WILL NEVER go without moisturizer on my skin day or night! There are a few steps or products that I may skip, but my moisturzer is NEVER one of those.  Read More

Wish You Were Here…

Tularosa Jacqueline Tunic / Andre Assous ‘Sasha’ Platform / Andre Assous ‘Finnley’ / Rebecca Minoff ‘Isobel’ Bag

Hat (similar)/ Beach Towel (similar)  / Moon and Lola New Orleans Earrings / Flash Tattoos


Today’s post is WEEKEND READY!! I am all about an easy summer dress, a pair of espadrilles and a weekend escape! I wanted to share with you all a fun and breezy look perfect for a day out with the girls, on the beach or your next tropical getaway!  This dress has been on my MOST WANTED list since February and I finally broke down and got it! I have raved about this brand before and I am still obsessed, this is the Tularosa Jacqueline Tunic Dress and besides it’s off the shoulder perfect it also has the most intricate embroidery that makes this dress a MUST HAVE!  A lot of off-th-shoulder tops are hard to wear, but this one stays put when I move my arms and that’s MAJOR 😉

Can we please take a minute for these AMAZING Andre Assous “Sasha” Espdarille heels?!?!? These shoes stole my heart the minute I saw them on Nordstrom’s wesbite!  If you are looking for a shoe that is flirty, easy and beautiful than this one is it! This shoe can pair with almost anything in your closet, but especially all of your little spring/summer dresses and rompers!  I have so many weddings to attend and I am always looking for a cute neutral heel to pair with my looks and this one goes with practically everything! I did size up in this shoe, if you needed a size reference.  I also wanted to link another one of their cute shoes, the ‘Finnley’ in case they were sold out of your size in the ‘Sasha.’ These shoes will be a staple this Summer for sure, so I hope you all will check them out!

This bag… I have been looking for a great small bag for concerts! My husband and I will be attending numerous Dave Matthews Band Concerts this year, as it is in FINAL touring year (insert crying emjoi).  Last weekend we had the opportunity to go see Dave in his hometown of Charlottesville, VA and the concert and town were both wonderful! The night of the concert, I opted for this fun, easy fringe bag that held my phone, lipstick, lip liner, credit card/id and still had room for a powder compact.  There was a lady as I was getting my bag checked who asked, “How did you get everything in that little bag?!?” When I showed her, she was impressed!  This is the Rebecca Minkoff ‘Isobel’ bag and it comes in so many fun colors.  I love the cobalt blue for summer 🙂

This hat is EVERYTHING!! I had been seeing these hats everywhere on Instagram and finally found one! I found this one at an Instagram only boutique @bitsandpiecestogo … To order you just call them or send them a direct message.  The hats are $90.  I also wanted to link similar ones that are available online here!  I also found some AMAZING ones at Nordstrom, but they were pretty pricey, but VERY nice and I will link them below as well.


This towel….  So for like 4 months I contemplated this amazing towel because of the price! This towel is $89.00. but before you GASP let me just tell you that once you buy it, it will be your ONLY beach towel for years to come! This towel is unlike anything I have ever seen.  First of all, it’s ROUND and that is unheard of! Second, it is lined with the prettiest fringe.  Thirdly, it is SUPER plush and can be machine washed! I could keep going, but I think the vibrant colors and the kaleidoscope pattern speak for themselves. If you get this towel and don’t just want to lay on it immediately, there is a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.  This towel is by Vagabond and they have so many beautiful ones to chose from.  It will be making a bunch of appearances this summer on the blog 🙂

I hope you all will have a wonderful weekend and I hope you will have time to relax with friends and family! Happy Friday!
