How to Mix Summer and Fall Pieces

How to Mix Summer and Fall Pieces

Eyelet Top | Skinny Jeans (similar) | Grey Mules | Leopard Print Clutch (almost identical) | Sunglasses I never realize how busy our neighborhood is during the summer until school is back in session. The parking is empty, the pool is quiet and the sidewalks are clear of bikers, runners and families. Summer is officially over here on the Emerald Coast- but the weather won’t reflect it for several more weeks! I am often caught between the anticipation of fall (Mack and I are so excited for football season) while we still have the luxury of enjoying the beach! So, where does that leave my wardrobe- other than confused? Let’s chat about three ways to mix summer and fall pieces as we patiently wait on cooler weather here on the coast. How To Mix Summer and Fall Pieces Utilize Summer Staples How cute is this eyelet top? It’s under $40 and so fun! It features a slight cropped length, cold shoulder detail and ruffled statement sleeves. This top is definitely a statement on its own but is balanced by the cotton material and eyelet cutouts. Eyelet is a summer staple but mixes well with a simple pair of skinnies and a […]

What to Buy for Your Dog’s Birthday

What to Buy for Your Dog's Birthday

Dog Mom T-Shirt | AG Jean Shorts | Adidas Tennis Shoes | Sunglasses (similar) Let me just start this post by saying you would have laughed so hard at the looks that Mack and I got during this photoshoot with Rebel and Tiger. Luckily, we have no shame in our #dogparent game and Mack was a good sport even as I tried to pose the doggies. 😂 To every photo you see above, I have about 20 others on my camera that are hilarious. The boys just didn’t understand why our walk came to a stop. But August is a BIG month in our house because Rebel and Tiger have birthdays exactly one week apart. We celebrated Rebel’s 5th trip around the sun on Sunday, and Tiger’s 3rd is coming up this Sunday. With that in mind, and because I am THAT dog mom, I had to share what we gifted them. Since everyday is their birthday (as Mack says) we keep it simple. The only toys that we buy them are GoDog toys. We probably have close to the entire collection at this point. Rebel is so sweet with his toys whereas Tiger… rips them to pieces as quickly as he can. […]

Ulta Haul: Part Two

Ulta Haul_Part Two

Orange Cleaning Soap | Glycolic Acid Toner | Hydro Moisturizer with Vitamin C | Vitamin C Serum | Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E A few weeks ago I shared the first part of my Ulta haul detailing my new It Cosmetics obsessions! You can read that full rundown, here. Today, I am sharing the second part which revolves around skin care. I chatted about how I am trying to “eat and drink myself pretty” by adding collagen to my routine on Tuesday. But, my hope is that with a mix of both internal and extremal remedies, I can continue to care for my skin in the best way. Since I already love the Mario Badescu face masks, I decided to try some more products from their line and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. I won’t bore you with a recap of each product but I do want to highlight three that I really love. Ulta Haul: Part Two Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner Toner always gives your face that extra clean feeling after cleansing. The most notable point regarding this toner is that it doesn’t burn- which I like. Instead it leaves your skin feeling refreshed and cool. This toner is […]

My Experience Adding Beauty Collagen to my Coffee with Tonic Products

My Experience Adding Collagen to my Coffee with Tonic Products

Beauty Tonic by Tonic Products My morning routine revolves around coffee! My day doesn’t start until I pour myself a hot cup and open my Bible study. I get such a warm feeling starting my day this way! Around the beginning of the year, I decided to look for a collagen product to add to my morning coffee. Several options on the market are very expensive so I keep looking and stumbled upon Tonic Products. I’ve used their Beauty Tonic ever since and I am obsessed- it’s tasteless, odorless and colorless. But it packs a lot of nutrients for my hair, skin, nails and more. If you’re looking for a way to up your collagen intake keep reading and simply mix it in with your coffee! Here are three benefits I’ve seen by adding beauty collagen to my coffee. Benefits of Adding Beauty Tonic to My Morning Coffee Replace Coffee Creamer I’ve read a lot about Whole 30 and although I haven’t made the plunge to fully try the program, I know that it encourages black coffee. I used to add a splash of hazelnut coffee creamer to my morning brew daily. But I always knew that infusing my coffee with […]

What to Wear on a Day Date

What to Wear on a Day Date

Black Scalloped Dress | Glitter Block Heels | Sunnies (similar) | Blush Bucket Bag Summer is coming to an end. First off, how? Second off, I am relieved. It has been HOT. With the end of summer comes the anticipation for fall but before we get there, let’s chat about Day Dates before those sunny days are old news. Day Dates are honestly one of my favorite things, ever. In San Diego, we took an entire day and just explored (see the full travel guide, here) which was essentially a Day Date for us. We rode scooters, sipped mid-day cocktails and I got sunburnt. That day, and memories from it, leave me with a happy heart. In an attempt to bring our Day Date home, we got out last Saturday around noon. We simply went to get a green smoothie (for Mack) and frozen yogurt (for me). We went to one of our favorite local spots, walked around for like ten minutes (before the heat scorched us) and then we headed back home. Although it was short and sweet, it was a welcomed break in the day. When dressing for a Day Date, whether it’s filled with plans or simply […]

Maintaining my Gum Health with Smile Brilliant CariPRO Electric Toothbrush

Smile Brilliant CariPro Toothbrush Review

CariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush In my opinion the easiest “beauty hack” is to invest in your smile. Eyelash extensions cost a fortune, dermatology procedures to brighten your skin involve lasers, and no matter where you fall on the spectrum of for or against Botox, it doesn’t last forever. However, our smiles are eternal! They are unique to each of us and when cared for, provide a lifetime of displaying our best emotion- happiness. You can imagine my surprise when I was informed at a recent routine dental cleaning, that my bottom gums had receded too far. In fact, I was at risk of gum disease and other factors if not addressed. Naturally, I FREAKED OUT. My healthy smile is so important to me. So, we won’t even get into how I was never made aware of this diagnosis until that moment. But there it was, plain as day, when I pulled my bottom lip down… the bottom gums covering my front-four teeth, was essentially gone. After a second opinion and tons of research (apparently this is fairly common if you have braces while you’re young as they bring your teeth forward, stretching that already thin layer of gum tissue), the […]

Three Everyday Frills with Frill Seekers Gifts

Three Everyday Frills with Frill Seekers Gifts

 Frill Seekers Gifts There are certain everyday items that elevate how we feel! Isn’t that statement so true? We definitely don’t need things to feel happy, but every once and awhile you find that something special that just brings a hint of joy to your day. I find the most joy in two variations of things I buy which includes; (1) gifts for others and (2) items for our home. For you, it may be the perfect pair of shoes or even the best shade of lipstick. But we all have that thing. With that in mind, and after getting that “frilly” feeling three different times after shopping with Frill Seekers Gifts, I knew I had to share about this locally owned boutique situated in the heart of Destin. Don’t worry, you will get a full sit-down with the mother-daughter duo, Heidi and Peyton LoCicero, behind this boutique soon. In the meantime, I want to share three everyday frills that I’ve personally found at Frill Seekers Gifts with you. Three Everyday Frills with Frill Seekers Gifts Champagne Robe I’ve attended a few bachelorette parties and they all have one thing in common: a lingerie party. I feel like lingerie is a […]

48 Hours in San Diego

48 Hours in San Diego

As most of you already know, Mack and I went to San Diego to celebrate our best friend’s wedding! Since we were traveling literally across the country, we went two days early to take a mini-vacay. Let me tell you, it was worth it! We had the best time exploring the city together, the weather was perfect and we indulged in allll the food and drink options. Clearly, I was fond of that aspect as this cookie ice cream sandwich was the photo I selected to represent this entire post. 😂 We really had no idea what to do or see but a quick Google search resolved that. We looked at this New York Times article and hit the road! We didn’t follow it to a T however, so I wanted to create a mini-guide for you because I believe we did it RIGHT. 48 Hours in San Diego | Day One Rose Garden at Balboa Park Our first stop was to Balboa Park! It’s an extensive park that houses museums, the zoo and more. Although we didn’t have time to enjoy any of the exhibits or take advantage of the zoo, we did walk around and it’s beautiful. We […]

Ulta Haul: Part One

Ulta Haul_Part One 1

It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation | It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Eye Palette | It Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush (shade is Je Ne Said Quoi) | It Cosmetics Anit-Aging Armour | It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pours Micro-Powder We are back from San Diego and it’s safe to say that although I love a good getaway, there’s no place like home (with Rebel and Tiger)! My mom flew to Florida to stay with the dogs while we went away. To some, this may seem extreme, but she needed a vacation and I needed a dog sitter. It was a win-win for all! Speaking of my mom, I’ve mentioned here before that she always treats me to makeup. Well, she recently had a special coupon for Ulta so I was able to do a big haul (thanks, mom)! Let’s back up for a minute however. A few weeks ago we went to Corpus Christi and I actually felt my makeup melting off. I thought this was just an expression until I experienced it myself. I don’t know if the Corpus humidity is more dense than the Florida humidity but it was an issue. On a quest to find a solution (although I don’t experience this all […]

Must-Have Black Jumpsuit Under $30

Must-Have Black Jumpsuit Under $30

Black Jumpsuit | Blush Feather Heels (sold out, similar) | Cat Clutch (old, I love this pom option too) | Sunglasses (similar) Sometimes when the heat of summer truly hits, the best opt out is to frequent your neighborhood bar, get a cold glass of champagne and remain in the air conditioning. That’s exactly what we did last weekend with our friends Jamie and Rob. I wore this must-have black jumpsuit (under $30!) and I felt like I was wearing my favorite silk jammies out in public (but it was acceptable). The material didn’t stick to me, hardly wrinkled and flowed nicely in the Florida humidity. I was so happy with how well it wore, I am wearing it this out this evening in San Diego! Although the pink feather heels didn’t make the trip (read why in this post), I packed my more neutral studded heels for the occasion. No matter what your weekend plans entail- whether attending an event or simply sipping happy hour drinks with your friends- this jumpsuit can take you there. Mack and I are in San Diego for our best friend’s wedding and so happy! We decided to fly out a few days early […]
