Swimsuit season is finally setting in with Memorial Day weekend only another week away. That means pools and waterparks are officially opening up – and beaches are becoming a common destination. If you haven’t started shopping for your summer swim gear yet, don’t fret because there’s still time! One of my new favorite brands for all things swim-related is Athleta because they literally have the best swimsuits for every body type. With a wide range of pieces that flatter different shapes and sizes, you’ll feel empowered and confident in no time!
I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but my spring and summer has been packed with trips! I love visiting new places and exploring the unfamiliar but the downside to it is ALWAYS packing! I have a strong urge to overpack every. single. time. Whether it’s clothes, shoes, or my beauty bag, my luggage is brimming to the top. My week-long trip to France really challenged me to pare back and only take the essentials! Since skincare and makeup goodies tend to be my biggest battle (and the heaviest to pack), I wanted to share a basic packing list that caters to sunny, gorgeous weather and perfect skin. Read on to find out the basic skincare products to pack for long-haul trips and why I always pack eos products!
Considering how many time that we’ve stayed in Sandestin, I can’t believe I’m just now putting together a Sandestin travel guide! We’ve been coming and staying here for YEARS. Between weddings, both friend and family vacations and my dad’s annual business conference trips, I’d like to think I’ve done it all and have some pretty good pointers including why staying at the Hilton Sandestin is the perfect hub for every type of activity. I’m sharing all of my favorite things to do if you’re planning a summer trip to these white sandy beaches (the MOST beautiful you’ll ever see.)
One of the things that gets me most excited about May is spending more time outdoors! Summer is all about enjoying the warm weather, indulging in a go-to summer snack, and basking in good company. I’m a habitual snacker, so I tend to reach for quick, easy snacks everyone can enjoy. When it comes to potato chips in our house, Jordan is obsessed with Cape Cod Potato Chips. (I swear it also has something to do with the fact that he played summer baseball in the Cape.) But really, whether you’re solo or with a group of friends, I don’t know anyone who isn’t a fan of classic potato chips!
I love getting emails from you guys asking about New Orleans. Not only is it one of my favorite places to visit (only a one hour drive away), but it’s also one of my favorite places to talk about especially when it comes to suggestions or recommendations. So when DSW asked me to share some spring looks inspired by one of my favorite places New Orleans, I immediately started putting together outfits to get you through the French Quarter, beignet snacking, City Park strolling and more!
