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!

dress season.

Hello friends!

With spring quickly creeping up on us, we are finally experiencing all the blooms and…allergies! 🙂 Summer is almost around the corner, but with this season brings so many occasions (whether it be a wedding, prom, formal, etc.. the list goes on and on) to put on that fancy schmancy dress and feel like a Disney princess (Did I mention that Belle was always my favorite? I have yet to see the new movie though).

I don’t know about you, but I always seem to procrastinate ’til the last minute and go crazy trying to find a dress the week before a big occasion.

I was sent a few dresses from Ever Pretty to try and omg (it is acceptable to talk in acronyms on a blog?).. I fell madly in love!

The prices are all very affordable (all under $100), and they fit so nicely! It’s safe to say..details are definitely on point with these.

Yes, I felt like Cinderella in this dress. It must have been that perfect-pastel-royal shade of blue.

I also felt like I embodied “Spring” in the two pieces. The ironic thing? This is the first year in like 5 years that I do not have a wedding to go to! Someone find me an event to wear these to..and quick!

If you’re looking for me, I’ll be over here playing dress-up by my lonesome… I mean how could you resist?
