Summer Vacay Faves



S U M M E R
I am love, love, loving the warm and sunny days. I am a little ray of sunshine myself because I am being able to travel so much lately. So, I wanted to share some of my favorite (& bright) pieces that are becoming pretty cozy in my suitcase this summer.

P.S. I recently bought my first pair of boyfriend jeans and holy moly I might never take them off

Rise & Shine

Wednesday, May 21, 2014


I am not a morning person by any stretch of the imagination, buuuuut I have started waking up at 5.... and not only functioning all day but working out before I start my day! It's shocking. I actually love an early morning work out and I highly recommend forcing yourself out of bed and trying it, at least once because most likely you'll be hooked! 

EARLY MORNING WORKOUTS

BEFORE:
>> Pack everything you need that your gym doesn't provide. Shower necessities, make up, lotion, hair products and straightener/curling iron, a change of clothes, shower shoes, towels etc. etc. Let your inner diva shine
>>I like to chug 2 EmerganC packs mixed with half a bottle of water before my workout 
>>Bring a friend! You're so much more motivated if you're not the only one trekking to the gym before the sunrise 

DURING:
>>Make a killer playlist. Some of my favorite pump up tunes right now are Rich as F by Lil Wayne, Fancy by Iggy Azalea & Skrillex Pandora 

AFTER:
>>Drink. Chocolate Milk is great for you post workout (& yummy). I muddle mint, lime, and lemon in my water and drink as much as possible.
>>Stretch. It will help reduce soreness! 

Try out the Spitfire app too, it will give you some plans and exercises to do if your brain needs some refreshing!

Broccoli Slawghetti

Happy Monday Y'all! 
I hope everyone had a great weekend, mine was full of naps and puppy snuggling, so I'm feeling super refreshed today! 



This is not my picture, I stole it from pinterest but I had to share this super yummy recipe!

It's spaghetti, but it's broccoli. Weird right? NO it's literally the same flavor and texture. The only difference is this broccoli slaw "spaghetti" is only 25 calories a cup! You can buy the broccoli slaw by the prepackaged lettuce in the store. I got a whole box for only $2.50. 

So not only is it lo cal, but it's super easy to make! You just boil the broccoli slaw, just like spaghetti, for about ten minutes or so until its tender. Then you drain and top with your favorite sauce. I added grilled chicken too but it was just as yummy on its own.


My picture isn't as pretty, and really doesn't do the taste justice. Just take my word for it and give it a try!


Going to the Chapel

Sunday, May 18, 2014


It's one of my favorite times of year, (do I say this a lot? I'm just generally a happy person, so every time of year brings me joy!) the flowers and beautiful dresses, the love and celebration of two families becoming one, the open bar. It's all so wonderful, plus it gives you a reason to dress up and dance the night away. 

Last night, I attended a wedding with one of my best friends. It was a gorgeous wedding especially since there were sunflowers everywhere! Fun fact: I have a sunflower tattoo! Anyway, the food was great, the wedding was great, and the bride's dress was stunning. 

I wore this adorable pink romper, my friend Elizabeth gave me. I love a romper so easy to throw on and dress up or down. Last night I paired it with my DVF shoes and gorgeous jewels, gifted to me from Kristalize Boutique. I topped the look off with my gingham Kate Spade clutch and Fuschia Lips.

If you're like me and cry at every wedding, this is the perfect opportunity to try the big spring trend of bright lips. They work best with minimum eye make up and since I would be crying most of mine off anyway it's a win-win. I am obsessing over Maybelline Fuschia Fever right now.

Georgia Peaches

Friday, May 9, 2014


So excited to share one of my newest obsessions, Knot+Bow Designs on the bloggy blog today! I stumbled upon one of their pictures on instagram a couple of weeks ago and I seriously fell in love with  every single piece. After stalking their instagram for a solid hour, I still couldn't choose my favorite necklace, bracelet, or ring. I wanted them all! 

I was even more in love the next morning when I received an email from their owner, asking for my address so she could send me a few of her favorites! I was as giddy as a kid on Christmas morning, especially because the owner was so sweet and a fellow southern gal from Georgia! The package came shortly after (I meant to get a picture of the adorable packaging but I was so excited to see my gifts, I couldn't wait to see what was inside). I was beyond in love. Knot+Bow sent me three things, but today I'm only sharing the first with y'all. 

I had to go to Atlanta for a work trip. The hotel, Aloft, was so interesting.  I definitely found time to lounge by the pool and wear some of my new summer pieces. The cover up was passed down to me from my grandmother and definitely one of my favorites. I paired it with my blue mirrored aviators and new Knot+Bow Necklace, it was perfect for catching drinks at the pool bar. 

As always, click the links on the bottom of the page to shop this look & stay tune for a giveaway coming later this week with Knot+Bow! YAY!
