poolside essentials.

Hello friends,

Now that it’s officially beach/pool/water weather… I am soaking up all the sun before my highly anticipated summer vacations! In the meantime, you can find me posted next to the pool.

I’ve put together a few of my poolside favorite essentials for the summer. Here they are:

  1. Books: I have always been a bookworm, but adult-ing makes it hard to squeeze in time to read books. I am trying my best to add that to my life, as I know I feel so much more accomplished finishing a book than I do a tv show 🙂

    I was sent the new book, Oola For Women, which will be released this Monday, May 2nd! This book is super motivational and applicable to all women, and looks at 7 key areas to help you better your life: Fitness, Finance, Family, Field, Faith, Friends, & Fun. I love how each chapter focuses on a key area and is written in an easy-to-read style. It’s also filled with lots of #girlboss quotes to help you step it up no matter where you are in your journey of life. You can find it on Amazon as well as here.

  2. Floaties: Okay..how fun are all the different shaped floats that have been coming out this season? I don’t know about you..but kids these days have the coolest inflatables!

    I am SO obsessed with this pizza floatie! I’m pretty sure we just had normal ring ones when I was a kid. Just because I am now a…biggER kid.. does not mean I will miss out on this fun-ness! Give me all the food-shaped floaties please and thank you!

  3. Sunscreen: SPF umm..100? 🙂 Skin care is so important no matter the time of the year. Protect yoself!

    Enjoy your weekend lovelies!

pacific city.

Hello friends,

Move over..there’s a new spot in town! I have heard so much about Pacific City ever since it opened, and I finally had the chance to visit and check it out for myself.



So so many cute places and good ideas all compacted into one location. I mean… how perfect is this champagne bar and flower shop!?! Too perfect.


Not going to lie… Philz Coffee opening there is really what nudged me to finally visit. I had heard so much about Philz and their amazing mint mojito coffees as it started up in the San Francisco area.


However, I never once tried it while living in the city as there were SO many good coffee shops to try out. I finally got to try their iced mint mojito coffee and it was minty heaven in a cup! Go try it.. you won’t regret it.

The perfect combination of eateries and hip shops, there was such cute and picture perfect spots! Pair that with a view of the beautiful beach and live music, yes…. it was perfect indeed.


Til next time…

Xoxo,

Lena
