PUERTO RICO.. 31 OF MY FAVORITE MOMENTS IN PICTURES
When thinking about Puerto Rico I can’t help but to think about the beauty. Not only the beauty of the people both inside and out.. but the beauty of a place where Rain Forrest and clear waters sit side by side. The beauty of a place where culture, food, music and gusto are a way of life. A place where I felt right at home.
So when the Jockey Activewear team asked me to join them on a 4 day trip to Puerto Rico I didn’t hesitate. Not only were they going to take me to a place where I had yet to visit (Bucket List Puerto Rico √), they also told me to bring a friend. Ummm.. DONE! I text my girl Stephanie (Honey and Silk) and in less that 30 seconds she was in!
Tee shirts and sweatshirts with cheeky and or inspirational quotes are nothing new in the grand scheme of the history of fashion.. Clearly the 1960's started the trend when our parents and grandparents generations decided that finger paint and fabric of all sorts would work well together. Back then it was Peace..Love.. and whatever cause there was to be fought for. Today it's more like..
Memorial day weekend marks the unofficial start to both summer and vacation season. Summer travel to beautiful and far away lands is a must.. but with all that travel, different climates, airplanes, and just pure exhaustion, your skin takes a beating.
Now most of the time when we are talking skin, it's about our face.. but lets not forget that the majority of our skin is on our body. We all tend to neglect that fact. I can't tell you how many people I know who don't wear lotion, who wash with harsh soaps and who forget sunscreen all together. We are going to be a generation of beautiful faces and wrinkled bodies. But never fear.. Aveeno and I have partnered up to help you fight dry skin where it also matters. ON YOUR BODY!
Summer starts now. Three words that every human on earth looks forward to hearing and saying! You see, I was born on the first day of summer, so warm weather is in my blood. Summer is the season for love, fun, and of course a whole new wardrobe filled with fun and flirty pieces.
Layers come off, swimsuits rule, sundresses stand the test if time, shorts get short and wardrobe gets super fun... And this season H&M has summer covered...
I am now and forever will be a fan of the two piece set. I will be one of those old ladies rocking head to toe matching suits that I pull from the archives of my closet.. I imagine with tons of jewelry and minimal make up.. but never the less I will be her.
I was sitting here after spending the last two days packing up my house to prepare it for all new floors and I started thinking about hair. I know.. how and where do floors and hair go hand and hand.. well they don't.. but.. you know!
For the last 9 months or so I have been wearing my hair with with a center part, super sleek and straight and many of you may remember that for a year before that I was all about big hair. The bigger the better! Just the other day I was having a some hair nostalgia and decided to give my strands a bit of texture for the day. With that said I thought I would share some of my favorite tools and products to texture your hair for those fun summer days..
1. A good curling wand. To take your hair from flat to full a great curling wand is a main ingredient. For textured hair be sure to wrap 1 inch sections of the hair around the wand leaving a bit of the ends. This is what gives you a beachy wave. Be sure to curl the sections in different directions. 2. Dry shampoo. I like to use this on both dirty hair and clean hair.. If my hair is clean I spray a small bit before I curl.. if my hair is dirty a spray both my scalp and my hair. 3. Light Oil. Because Dry shampoo can be drying I like to add a very small amount hair oil after I curl to add a bit of shine and moister. 4. Hair Spray. No messy hair is complete with out a little bit of light hold hairspray. Spray only the ends and scrunch your hair up with your hands.
Super Easy and super quick! Let me know how yours turns out! Shop some of my favorite products and tools above.
There's is nothing like a super cute bohemian dress to throw on when it's hot and with the 70's trending the way it is this is the perfect time to stack them up in your closet. From print to lace to silks and cottons, full on Bohemia (is that a word?) is in full swing and I for one an super ecstatic about it. I mean who doesn't want to rock comfy beautiful dresses on a daily basis...
With Spring already here and Summer months of endless sun filled days outside fast approaching, it is super important to start preparing our skin for what I like to call battle. With as much fun as we are all going to have at beaches, parks, pools, hikes, wonderful meals on beautiful patio's, coffee with friends at cool local outdoor cafes and more, the sun and summer weather is a source of joy in our lives and can be a source of havoc on our skin. With that said spring is the perfect time to adjust your skin care routine. Knowing just what products to purchase and changing up your routine can
be both over whelming and expensive so I teamed up with ROC skincare to give you
guys some pointers on the products that are essential.
Okay so maybe Wednesday is a little bit early to start thinking about weekend brunch, then again you can never make a plan too early. I have been meaning to write about one of my favorite restaurants in LA for a while now. Since they opened their doors in mid December, Terrrine has not seen a slow night.. And when they added weekend brunch to the mix, Los Angeles weekends got that much brighter! Now we all know I love food..
I am actually super excited that it is Monday.. This weekend was off to a great start and then Saturday evening I came home to my bedroom and bathroom floor covered in water. Thus with this new week comes the possibility of a new start.. however small it may be!
Believe it or not .. Just because I am a blogger does not mean I love to always shop.. Sometimes I wish I could just flip a switch and the amazing pieces that I think should line my closet will automatically be there, or at least be super easy to find. For the last few months I have been searching for the perfect white tee and a white fridge bag.. And just as I was asking the universe for my wish.. a little thing called Shop Your Wayentered my life..
