So the funny thing is, that when I went to shoot this I could not find my bobby pins…lol! I went to the store to purchase them and I somehow misplaced them. I had to go digging through my purses and the cup holder in my car. The good news is I found some and I now have an official bobby pin pouch to keep my 99 bobby pins. I hope you are giggling when you read this because I am sure I am not the only girl with this problem, hence why I originally sought out this pouch.   BAG/POUCH: Jac Vanek |  SUNGLASSES: Seafolly | NAILPOLISH: Essie {similar Here}| LIPS: Sephora

  I know we are past the 4th of July but why stop celebrating the Red, White, and Blue?  This oversized Bonfire Sweater made by Mumu has been my favorite this summer. Now I know some of you can not even imagine wearing a sweater in the summer but for the other half of the population, we need something when the sun goes down or before the morning clouds clear up. As you will see from my Instagram, I have worn this with yoga pants, bikini’s and shorts. It does run oversized, and I am wearing a size small  {keep in mind I am 5’4”}.   I hate to be a buzzkill, but this sweater is temporarily sold out {sorry}!!!! But head over and click the notify me button so when the Mumu Bonfire Sweater is back you can be first on the list. I have also given you some alternative options you might even like better.   SWEATER: Mumu {options  Here and Here} | SUNGLASSES: Seafolly | HAT: purchased in Panama {Similar Here} NECKLACE: J-Crew 2 years ago, {Similar Here}

The last couple of nights I have found myself waking up in the middle of the night.  I am sure you all know the feeling when you wake up and then lie there for what feels like hours until you drift back to sleep only to hear the alarm go off a few minutes later. So frustrating. My heart goes out to the people who have this happen nightly. For those of you who know me personally you know that I am a great sleeper, I get anywhere between 9 – 11 hours of sleep, and if I am under my 9 hours, I will find the time to take a siesta. I thank my college days in Espana for teaching me all too well about the prominent siesta.   I took it upon myself to research why we don’t sleep as sound or ways to improve our sleep.  I found out that working out will improve your sleep. I know we all know that exercise is so good for our bodies, our minds, and an overall healthy lifestyle, but […]

Pants: Alo / Tank: Alo / Location: Dog Beach / Dog: Ruby Rose No white until after Memorial Day?  Can you believe we are already halfway through May?!?!   I decided to bring some yoga inspired outfits to the blog. Recently I have been posting mostly about financial matters and it is time to get focused on the mind body and soul.   For those of you who know me personally, you know I am a diehard yogi! #yogaeverydamnday .  Yoga came into my life in October of 2010, and I don’t know if I would be living life as concisely as I am if I had not adopted a yoga practice.   Enough about the practice, let’s get to the outfits. I have to say; I have been so ready to get out of my black and dark colored yoga outfits and into white and spring colors.  I am in love with Alo’s Carmen Bra Tank and Sheila Legging.  If you have never worn Alo, you are missing out. They are designed to be slimming and lifting in all […]

It dawned on me, I am either reading about the “it” bag and what is hot this season or what “must haves” I need to put in my purse. And don’t get me wrong, I love seeing the what is hot, and I am always looking for ways to organize or add to my handbag. We are always lugging around our purse that is filled with things like; wallet, cell phone, business cards, some hair accessories, a cosmetic bag with at least a lipstick and a lip liner, in my case my lucky rock {yes, I have a lucky rock}, keys, hand sanitizer, work papers and the list can go on.     Now, this number might astonish you, or it might seem a bit light but according to a study by StyleList, on average a woman’s handbag weighs 6.27lbs. I have to say; there have been a couple of times I have weighed my purse when I have checked my luggage and my purse came in at 10lbs!!!   Let’s get past the essentials and look at what we […]
