Vacation Essentials

29 Apr

I’m just finishing up packing for my vacation tomorrow, I’ll be heading to Kauai, Hawaii. I thought I’d share a few of my island essentials with you guys. When packing for a sunny destination, SPF is crucial- I use SPF 110 on my face and 50 on my body. I love Neutrogena Age shield face because it’s the only sunblock that doesn’t break out my sensitive skin. I also packed my oversized Old Navy floppy hat, white tory Burch flip flops and the cutest tommy Bahama fringe cover up that I found for under $50!!! I’ve been looking forward to this vacation for some time and will be sure to drink a Mai Tai for all of you guys:)

Aspen Trip!

11 Jan

Happy Monday everyone! I got such an overwhelming response to my Aspen pictures that I’m going to share some more here. It was the first trip to Aspen for my wife and I but definitely not our last. I feel like the way we planned it was perfect. We landed in Denver and rented a car and drove to Aspen, which is one of the most beautiful stretches of snow capped mountains I’ve ever seen. The drive took 3.5 hours but flew by as we got lost in all the scenery. Once we arrived in Aspen we stayed 4 days which is a nice amount of time to see the sights and partake in activities. I really loved ice skating but the ultimate bucket list check off was snowmobiling deep into the Aspen mountains for hours. We even saw moose!!!!! As usual, we ate our way through the town- Aspen is known for their strong culinary game and  were not let down once. Everything we ate was amazing! And as far as scenery goes, everywhere we looked was straight off of a post card. It was breathtaking to say the least.

I keep getting asked “Is aspen expensive?” Expensive would be an understatement! It is off the charts crazy expensive from the hotels, to activities, to shopping, to dining. When places are this astronomical in price, a once in a lifetime visit will usually suffice, but there was something so magical about Aspen that I will go back and overspend, because frankly, it was worth it! I suggest everybody visit this gem during the winter months!

7 May

CALLING ALL BRIDES TO BE>>>> Wedding season is right around the corner and if you’re a bride to be, you may already know that searching for the right wedding heel can be a daunting task.  I have been asked numerous times about my wedding heels so I thought I’d share them with you and a few more styles that I love- all under $100.  My 4th wedding anniversary is fast approaching and I still remember the last-minute STRESS of finding the right heel. That all ended when I stumbled upon this picture on Pinterest! nina  I had to have these heels!  After searching I found out they were by Nina shoes. It was a breath of fresh air finding a brand that had so many wedding heels at decent prices. Your wedding heels should accent your dress without stealing the show and the price shouldn’t break the bank! Nina shoes also come in a variety of colors so they’re perfect for bridesmaids or for the bride looking to wear a pop of color on her special day. Hopefully this post will help you find your perfect heel. Cheers! And congrats on your upcoming nuptials!

Find Your Nude!

19 Mar

If you’ve read my What Do I Wear With That? section featured on this blog, then you already know that I feel every woman needs a nude heel- A wedge or flat always work too.  Nude shoes literally match EVERYTHING, When I can’t find a shoe to match my ensemble, I always turn to my nude shoes to pull the outfit together. It’s practically like your barefoot and they elongate the legs as well which is a plus. With that being said I think it’s great to find a nude that is similar to your skin tone for a nice fluid look.
