No doubt you've seen someone carrying a straw bag around this summer; it's seems to be the hot summer trend in accessories for 2018. When we hit the beach over Memorial Day, I think every other woman was carrying one of these on the boardwalk. Straw totes aren't a new trend but they are definitely more popularly than ever this season. From small … [Read more...]

Sooooo I'll post more on this later and I must be crazy but I'm actually pretty jazzed up about this announcement. I just signed onto Beautycounter as a consultant! I've been using their products for awhile on and off and I've just loved everything I've used, along with the mission of the company. Here was my original review in early 2017. I had to … [Read more...]

Every since I had a makeover at Ulta a couple of months back, I've been obsessed with face masks. Not because I had one done with my makeover, but because my makeup artist was talking about them non-stop. This girl was only like 20 but she was already concerned with skin care - particularly that on her face, and all I could think was, I wish I had … [Read more...]

I may have a little bit of a Zulily addiction lately but today is definitely a sale I couldn't pass up! I adore SCOUT bags and they have a HUGE collection available at amazing prices today. Just in time for summer! They make awesome beach and pool totes, and their coolers are also great for a day on the beach. The only thing I don't love about … [Read more...]

Just a quickie because, how cute is this dress? It popped up on my Zulily feed today and I just ordered 2 of them! I couldn't help myself. I think they are technically supposed to be dresses but I'm totally envisioning wearing these at the beach this summer over a bathing suit as a cover-up. They seem like perfect comfy, light cover ups and we … [Read more...]

So today, Cole and I went to the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia. I actually hadn't even heard of it before we found out his field trip was there - but it's a neat little museum right in the Olde City section of Philadelphia. It's dedicated to the education of America's heritage and mission towards freedom & liberty. I wasn't expecting … [Read more...]

And while I continue to exercise on a regular basis, I find I'm not as spry as I used to be. Since turning 40, I've been well aware of my age and I strive to remain healthy and do all I can to remain as healthy as … [Read more...]

These were Pinterest-inspired and I had them done at my local salon today. Aren't they cute? I decided to try this nail art with gel this time (last time I did regular polish), so I'm hoping they won't be chipped for St. Paddy's Day and will last a big longer. Here's the pin that was the inspiration but I asked my nail girl to go with shamrocks … [Read more...]

Have you guys heard of or been to an Altar'd State? I hadn't until a couple of months ago. I was at the mall with a friend and as we walked by, she mentioned it was a cute shop so we bopped inside. I've been addicted ever since! According to their website, their first store opened in 2009, so they are still relatively new to the retail market. … [Read more...]
