    Ruffled One-Piece

    SWIMSUIT: H&M  |  SHORTS: Zara  |  SUNGLASSES: Zero U.V.  |  EARRINGS: Kate Spade  | BEACH BAG: Bath and Body Works (gift)          I got this swimsuit about a month and a half ago from H&M.  I fell in love with the fabric and style.  I actually bought it in a small and had to return it and get an extra small.  It’s only available online, but it is so pretty.  I’ve been looking for more one-piece swimsuits because I feel like they are more comfortable than bikinis.  The only thing that kind of bothers me about this suit is that it is too high-cut, otherwise it would…

    A Day in Santa Barbara

    DRESS: See You Monday  |  BAG: T.J. Maxx (similar cute ones)   |  SANDALS: Forever 21  |  NECKLACE: Made myself, supplies from Hobby Lobby  |  HEADBAND: H&M (similar)  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx           My husband and I took a little day trip to Santa Barbara yesterday.  It’s only an hour and a half from Los Angeles and we haven’t really spent much time there.  When we came to California on vacation several years ago we visited a beach in Santa Barbara.  I’m pretty sure that’s all I had done there.  I’ve been wanting to go back just to see the city and explore the area.  I have to…

    Fairy Cookies

              I made these cookies for my husband’s birthday, after making them one other time before.  He loves them and ate them all in two days.  I kind of came up with the idea myself, although I’m sure I am not the first one to do it.  I found a basic no-roll sugar cookie recipe online and modified it a bit.  A lot of recipes have you roll the cookies in sugar as the last step but I thought it would be fun to roll them in a mixture of colored sugar and sprinkles instead.  You can use any sprinkles you want to.  I just found…

    How to be Confident Wearing Color

    Top: Forever 21  |  Pants: Forever 21  |  Sandals: Abound           This may be a little difficult for me to explain because I’ve personally never had any issues wearing bright colors.  I have always been naturally drawn to color.  I couldn’t imagine avoiding it.  I have just heard people over the span of my life say something along the lines of “I can’t pull that off, it’s too bright.”  Based off previous conversations and observations, it seems that a lot of people think that if they wear a bright color it will make them stand out too much.  I don’t think this is the case.  When…

    My Plant Collection

    Aloe: This one is doing pretty well but it does loose a leaf every once in a while.   Bamboo: This bamboo has changed very little since I got it.  It may have gotten slightly bigger but I’m not even sure.  The leaves will get a little brown on the ends.    Polka-Dot-Plant: This one looked totally different when I first got it.  The leaves were very pink.  A bunch of them fell off and it started to grow longer and more like a vine.  I’m not really sure if it’s happy or not.  Lily: I think this is a peace lily but I’m not 100% sure.  It lost all…

    Day Trip to Solvang

    TOP: Lulu’s  |   SKIRT: Lulu’s  |  SANDALS: Forever 21  |  BAG: Coach  |  SUNGLASSES: T.J. Maxx            I’ve been wanting to return to Solvang since we moved to California but we haven’t really gotten around to it until now.  Last time I was there was almost 5 years ago.  It was raining and cloudy, not the best day.  It’s a little over 2 hours from Los Angeles, good for a day trip.  I love European inspired towns.  This one is Danish and every single corner of this town fits that theme.  If that’s your thing (like it is mine) you should really check it out sometime.…

    Why You Should Have a Bucket List

                 I’ve had a bucket list since sometime in High School.  I have always liked the idea of keeping track of my life goals.  I am a huge list-maker.  I am definitely the type of person that loves to have diverse experiences too.  I feel like having a list just helps you to stay on track for accomplishing as much as you can in life.  It kind of ensures that you have fun and do what you love to do.  If you are bored or you have a birthday coming up it’s nice to have a list that you can look at to accomplish something…

    What to Wear With Mom Jeans

    TOP: H&M  (similar)  |  JEANS: H&M  |  SHOES: Abound (Nordstrom Rack)  |  BAG: H&M  |  NECKLACE: Gift           I have been a longtime fan of mom jeans.  I feel like the trend kind of started out with boyfriend jeans.  They were much baggier, often had lots of rips, and lower waistline.  I didn’t really like those, not going to lie.  Once the trend migrated to mom jeans, I hopped onboard.  The waistline of mom jeans is higher and they are a bit more narrow.  I really love them now.  I own 4 pairs and they are normally the only style of jeans I wear.  I do…

    Cute Face Masks

    (Photo from FindyourMast) Etsy   (photo from Bauble Bar) (Photo from Anthropologie (Photo from Forever 21) (photo from Shopbop)  Tanya Taylor photo from Free People             Here are my favorite picks for cute masks.  I know tons of brands are making them now and most designers.  They are constantly selling out from a lot of the more popular designers, so I didn’t bother linking those.  I may make a park two of this post, depending on how long Coronavirus is around.  Non of these are medical grade, so they still require 6 feet of distance.  I am merely just sharing my favorites!  If you are…
