I have enjoyed jumping into Spring with my new SOREL sneakers that keep me moving all day!! From brand meetings to afternoon bike rides, my SOREL shoes are perfect for my work hard play hard lifestyle and for the Spring!! They have some amazing colors you all will LOVE!!! I have them linked and would love to know how you guys like yours!!! I hope you also
enjoy seeing a glimpse into a day in my life below also!

It’s important to enjoy Spring time in the city and one of my favorite things to do is to ride bikes around Chicago. My SOREL sneakers matched my bike, which I thought was so fun!! Life isn’t all fun and games, but it is important to enjoy the time when it is!

In addition to playing hard and doing shoots, I also work hard too! It’s important to look good and feel good when you are walking through the city — my SOREL sneakers definitely make me feel both of those when I walk around Chicago! I also loved how I was able to match the shoes perfectly with some work pants, which really fit in with my work hard,
play hard lifestyle. #AD

Hi guys!!! First off I hope y’all are having a great week so far!! Second I want to share with you a little about an amazing shopping experience I had with www.yoox.com!! I have been wanting this See By Chloe light pink crossbody bag for months now and I finally made the plunge and purchased it, and for a great price!!! I was also very temped to buy a TONN of other items because their site has some many good pieces (I held back though because I am shaving up for something on there and I think i can get it next month.. yay). Anyways, they have everything on there and all my favorite designers, I highly recommend checking it out!!!

A little about the site in case you didn’t already know, Yoox is Italian online fashion retailer and is a part of the Yoox Net-a-Porter Group, which also owns Net-a-Porter (which is ummm AMAZING)!! One really neat thing about Yoox is they have an amazing selection of “end of season” clothing and accessories from some of the best designers and brands in the world, which means they can have some incredible deals- thats how I got my Chloe bag at this deal!! You guys should check out the site and tell me what you think below, I love hearing from you!! Also I shared some fun photos from a mini shoot Brad and I did with my new bag… isn’t it the cutest?? Perfect for Valentines day!!!!

Xoxo

Adventure is our thing, wither its going to South East Asia in hopes to find the best pad Thai out there or simply dancing around our home city Chicago in hopes to find the something new to explore. Right now we are loving our new Hush Puppies shoes from Zappos for all our adventure needs!

The Chaste Ballet shoe is the comfiest and perfect to wear with jeans or a dress and I love how colorful they are because I am all about color!! Brad loves his pick, the Breccan Hayes in light brown, this is the perfect men’s shoe for fall! It’s extremely comfortable and stylish and can go with about anything! Brad wore his the other day to a fancy dinner too and he totally rocked them!

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a great Fall season so far!!! I am super excited today because I am
going to be talking about a company that has truly changed my life, JamesAllen.com.

My whole life, I knew the exact engagement ring I wanted and it never changed. I wanted a solitaire
diamond with a 6-prong setting on yellow gold, knife edge band. Soooo, when Bradley and I started
talking marriage, I subtly shared this information with him.  Something to know about Bradley is he is a
research guru, he is so dang good at it!  So he went right to work researching the best places to buy a
diamond and setting, he must have spent 40+ hours researching and comparing and nothing could beat
JamesAllen.com, since they had the best prices, quality and service.  There were also awesome services
they had that we didn’t even expect, which made our experience even more perfect and comfortable.

For example you can easily try rings on your hand (any setting you want), all through your phone. Kinda
crazy since we did a ton of research on our phone.   Also, they have a technology which displays all of
their 200,000+ conflict free diamonds in magnified360° HD. This technology is important because you
can see the actual diamond you’re buying and choose the best one rather than just relying on the
certificate. (Bradley just told me this was INCREDIBLY helpful for him, as he inspected many, many
diamonds before he chose mine)

Next, remember how I said I wanted a very specific ring? Well the best part about buying at James Allen
is you can 100% customize and design your own ring and they have a 24 hour non-commissioned staff
online to help you with questions.  I personally did not speak to them but I know Brad had a million
questions for them, because he was so careful about buying my ring, and they were super helpful and
able to answer all his questions with no pressure.

Finally, we felt comfortable because we knew with a lifetime warranty and easy returns (you get your
money back within 30 days), we were gold. I am a little picky, haha, and Brad was nervous that I might
not like it or might want to change something. So having the warranty was really nice for him (even
though I totally loved it!).
I also wanted to share a photo of my ring and some other amazing rings that you can find at
JamesAllen.com.  Scroll down to check them out and head over to JamesAllen.com to check out more
beautiful engagement rings! They also have a huge deal going on now – save 25% off on engagement
ring settings, wedding bands and fine jewelry!

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!!
