Okay Guys, lets talk hair! I get sooo many questions about how I do my hair, what products I use, if I color my hair, if I have extensions etc. So right now I wanted to take a minute to tell you about how I get my beach waves and how I make them last all day!

This Summer I found a brand that I really love, Beautopia Hair, and I have been using 3 of their most popular hair products to get my California beach wave look!

I”ll  walk you through how I use the products and what they are! The 3 products are:

1. Brocato Back to the Beach Texturizing Mist– After I am done curling my hair with a 1 in curling iron I gently comb through the curls and then spray this amazing texturizer all through out the curls and scrunch my hair ( your hair should still be totally dry after spraying).
2. Brocato Actives Enhancing Shine Serum – Then I squeeze a small amount of this shine serum into my hands and evenly distribute throughout my hair noticing areas that need more shine! ( I really love this product because I have naturally curly and slightly frizzy hair and it helps immensely with my frizz, especially in the summer when it’s humid out)
3. Brocato Maximum Hold Finishing Spray – Last I flip my head upside down and start spraying my hair with this maximum hold hairspray. Then I flip it back upright and spray again!! And there you have it- Perfect beach curls!!!
Let me know if you have any questions or want to see a tutorial!!

Hi friends!!! Im here to tell you all about travel and how you can save $30 on your next trip by booking through this link– Booking.com!

One of my favorite things to do has always been traveling! I’m not sure what it is – if it’s the adventure of exploring somewhere new, the feelings of freedom, the beautiful sights that I always tend to see, or what, but I sure to do love it!

I have quite a few favorite trips that I’ve gone on. One of the trips that got me a lot more comfortable traveling was when I went on a last-minute trip to Dubai! One of my friends was doing an internship there and invited another friend and me to come and said we could stay there for free. I looked up flights and saw that there were some good deals, so I booked a flight! It was pretty crazy, but I had such a blast touring Dubai with my friends, then also driving through the desert all the way to Oman! We even had some locals show us into a secret watering hole that we swam in!

Another of my favorite trips was when my husband and I traveled throughout Southeast Asia for a month before we moved to Chicago! It was a total blast and I loved every minute of it – I really enjoyed playing with elephants in Thailand and riding on a scooter all around town. There was one time where we kept seeing the same guy all around Laos, which was soo weird!

My absolute favorite place on that trip was the island of Palawan in the Philippines, which was SO pretty! I am a big fan of blue water and Palawan has the bluest water (and we went to a lot of great beaches before and after)! I can’t wait for my next trip too!

One thing that we really like is finding good places to stay at great prices. A great way to do that is by using Booking.com!

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. It has potential to be a pretty meal because it is light, colorful, and has great texture. It is also fairly quick and easy to prepare. For the past few years, I have enjoyed waking up a little bit early to craft a simple breakfast to start my morning off right.

If you don’t already know, I am kind of obsessed with peaches. So it was exciting to hear that Cheerios is coming out with new Limited Edition Peach Cheerios this Spring- I am already kind of obsessed with them too! They are gluten free, which is a game changer. Also, they are made with real peach puree and other natural flavors and taste like an orchard in a bowl- YUMMM!

I rarely ever have my cereal plain. I like to dress it up and make it look a little fancy with some kind of add-in. The recipe I keep going back to with these Peach Cheerios is adding in milk, fresh strawberries and a hint of cinnamon- to die for!!!

Peach Cheerios will be here just in time for the start of Spring and will be available in most grocery stores nationwide in March 2018, so keep an eye out for them. Give my recipe a try or create your own. If you do make your own, send me an email with your ingredients, I love to mix things up too!!

JUMPSUIT // SHOES // BAG // SUNNIES

We had a small taste of summer over Christmas Break and it was heaven!! This is my first winter in 10 years and I have been fine until I got back from vacation. The below freezing weather, short and gloomy days is an adjustment for sure but I’m pressing forward and getting excited for warmer days even if it’s months out haha!!

Here is one of my favorite outfits from out time spent in the Caribbean . Mister Zimi is one of my favorite brands and their pieces are perfect for vacation. They are light, stunning and they don’t wrinkle in your bag!! Also these shoes are the BESTTTTT!! I’m totally obsessed with them, they are great quality and super comfy!
