Happy Memorial Day + Guest Post

Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone is outdoors enjoying the long holiday weekend!
You can find me over at Sarah's today talking about my trip across the pond last year while she's over there enjoying all the sites in France and Italy. Nope.... not jealous at all!

Holiday Weekend Favs

It's only appropriate for me to have two sets of favs on this beautiful Friday heading into the long holiday weekend. You can also find me over at Amanda's today while she's honeymooning in fabulous Greece. Head on over and link up your Friday Favorites!

Favorite Mail ~ My latest Rocksbox of course! I'm absolutely in love with that half moon ring, I think I found another keeper!
Favorite lunches ~ Always loving my free yoga workouts twice a week at work on lunch. Nothing is better than getting away from your desk mid-day for some stretching and strength building.
I also enjoyed a fun lunch and learn this week conducted by the editor from Flying magazine. It was neat to learn more about becoming a pilot, and the benefits of being able to fly your own plane. They made the example of "Lunch in Fort Lauderdale? Sure!" Sounds good to me!
Favorite way to unwind ~ I popped open a bottle of the new SkinnyGirl Spicy Lime Margarita that my girl Kerri brought over last weekend and it is delish! It tastes just like the original with a spicy kick! Perfect for relaxing on the patio after a long day.
Favorite purchase(s) ~ I finally "went back to MAC". I've been such a huge fan of Sephora the past several years I forgot how much I love their Studio Fix foundation. I'll still be giving Sephora too much of my money, but I'm officially back on the MAC Studio Fix train.

I'm a little upset I procrastinated over the Kate Spade Surprise Sale, as I was eyeing an adorable polka dot iPad mini case (the iPad mini I got for Christmas is still nakee!). I went back to purchase it finally this morning, and it was of course gone. I guess it'll stay nakee until the next sale *womp womp*.
But.. who can resist Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale? Not this girl!

Memorial Day Beach Weekend

I couldn't be more excited for the upcoming long weekend and unofficial kick off to summer. That extra day makes such a big difference, and it makes way for a fun weekend getaway. I'm looking forward to hitting the beach, and hopefully some boat time as well while taking in the sites of the beautiful blue water. My weekend will consist of bathing suit wear and fun in the water by day, and grilling and s'mores by night.
Beach Weekend
Summer weekend getaway essentials:

Scallop Bikini - Target
Sunscreen - always practice safe sun!
BB Cream - ain't nobody got time for full makeup at the beach, and bonus points for this one containing SPF
Sunnies - for the beach and the boat
Fun tees to wear over bathing suit - Kerri wore the cutest tee to my pool party last weekend that said "Beach Please". Perfect bathing suit cover-up!
Beach hat - further sun protection for your face and neck
Beach Spray - to stay smelling fresh in the heat. This one even has soothing aloe in it!
TB Beach Towel - cute accessory for the beach
bkr Glass Water Bottle - Neiman Marcus (I'm starting to drink out of glass bottles instead of plastic due to the toxins).
SkinnyGirl Margarita Minis - perfect for the beach

Aztec Print

Target has seriously been on point lately. Every time I go through their clothing section, I want one of everything. I end up in the fitting room with an arm full of pretties I'd like to try on, and this dress is one of my recent finds. Plus it didn't hurt that I had a 25% cartwheel deal on all women's clothing over the weekend. Gosh I love Target...

Dress - Target | Wedges - DSW | Necklace - Kate Spade | Bag - Tory Burch
Since the print was so much fun, I decided to pair the dress with simple jewelry and added pops of color with my shoes and bag.
*Love the cut out on the back for an extra wow factor*
*I had the cutest little photographer assistant who provided some great photo bombs in the outtakes*

What are some of your favorite finds at Target lately?

Pool Party Weekending

Yet another beautiful weekend has come and gone. As much as I like for Friday to hurry up and get here each week I'm a bit alarmed at how quickly time is flying by. I have realized I need to start appreciating each moment no matter what day of the week it is instead of always trying to fast forward through life to get to the weekend.

Friday started off with a mini s'mores frappuccino, I mean look how adorable those little cups are! The price... not so much. It was only about $.30 cheaper than a regular frappuccino. Talk about a rip off, but hey we're all still buying them...
Then it was time for a much-needed pedicure, and grocery run at my happy place aka Target where I ran into my fav neighbor/spirit animal. Of course that meant we had to take a silly selfie to send to the boys.
That evening a bunch of us went out for a farewell party for two amazing people. They may only be moving to Tampa but we're all sad that they won't be in town anymore to see all the time.
*Fun weekend moments were meant to be captured with blurry iPhone pics*
Saturday was time for our kick off to summer pool party at the house, and you couldn't have asked for more perfect weather. It wasn't too hot (which led to not many people actually getting in the pool), low humidity and lots of fun playing cornhole on our brand new boards, grilling, and making memories with great friends.
*How beautiful are those boards?! We seriously have the most amazing neighbor-friends*
*Always a good time when KerriPamelaEmily, and I get together*
*The hostess with the mostess snuggling with the bags*

Friday Favs

Happy Friday! I'm happy to say that this week went by rather quickly, but I am more than ready for the weekend and all it's fun.



Favorite Outfit
Top - ON | Pants - Express | Heels - Target | Necklace - Versona

Favorite Mail

Roxy is thoroughly enjoying her new grain free Greenies treats from Chewy.com and I was just as excited as she was when I saw her package arrive. They have so many healthy options for pets, and I'm super impressed with their low prices. Win-win!

Favorite Recipe

Hoping to recreate this deliciousness for this weekend's pool party.

Favorite Find



When I saw this amazing dress on Blaire from Peaches in a Pod, I knew I had to order it. And once I saw the amazing price it went right into my online basket. Such a pretty flowy dress for spring and summer, and I love how you can wear it several different ways.
