Living in Orlando, we are fortunate to have a huge selection of beaches to enjoy. With 4th of July coming up, we will definitely be spending it enjoying the water and sunshine and it got me thinking about some good beaches to head out to. These are my favorite beaches for a weekend getaway or to spend the day. 1. Siesta Key Beach As I’ve mentioned before, this is my favorite beach! Many people agree because it has been voted America’s #1 beach. The beach itself is gorgeous, white sand and clear water with lots of activities/rentals. It’s a perfect place to spend the weekend or a few days because they also have a village with fantastic restaurants and shops. I will continue to rave […]
I’m linking up with Emily for a little Girl Chat today talking all about Summer Staples! I love chatting about this today because one – as I’ve mentioned I’ve got some serious summer vibes going, and two – it’s my Friday and I have a three day weekend at the beach planned, so summer essentials are definitely on the mind! 1st up is this Origins A Perfect World Moisturizer. I’ve been using this every morning. It’s perfect because it has SPF 40 so I wear it both under my makeup and as sunscreen for a beach/pool day. It’s a little thick but is really great for refreshed, glowing-like skin. Like any Florida girl, sandals, tank tops and shorts are most definitely summer staples. Old Navy […]
This weekend was THE BEST. 3-day weekends should occur at least once a month. I was a little sluggish today at work though trying to recover from all the fun and sun 🙂 But I wasn’t the only one so it’s okay! Friday night the pups had a play date! I went out to dinner and drinks with friends at World of Beer and we sat outside so the fur babies could join. One of my friends just got a puppy so they made a new friend too. I had this amazing Pink Lemonade cider while we there – sooo tasty. Afterwards, we hung around for the movie in the park at Lake Eola. It was cool but there were a lot of people and […]
Happy last Friday of May! Let’s jump into some favorites for this month! One. Summer is here! I’m super excited for the long weekend, including a pool day on Monday! And I’ve even more excited for a trip to Siesta Key that we’ve booked in a couple weeks with my family! I definitely have some serious summer vibes and can’t wait to soak up the sun! Two. Finally got a chance to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this past weekend and it was soooo good. It was hilarious and baby Groot was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! I think I liked it even better than the first. Three. All the blueberry recipes. I had so many blueberries to work with last week so […]
I’m back!! It’s been so long since I’ve posted but my little break is over and I’m happy to get back to blogging! Since I started a new job in May, I’ve been working a lot more hours and had some trouble keeping up with everything. I finally feel like I’ve gotten into a routine and I’m starting to find balance. Linking up with Kristen and Gretch for What’s New seems like the perfect way to catch up! Here’s what we’ve been up to in these past few busy (but fun) months: Went to a couple of Orlando City games. Ladies nights with good friends! Visited Mickey a few times for some sunny days at the parks. July 4th at Wekiva Island, complete with a giant blow […]
Lately I’ve been a bit of a Shopaholic. I almost never online shop but I’ve been doing a little of that and spending some time at the mall and outlets. I think it’s just the transition into summer that makes me want to refresh my wardrobe and get some things we’ve needed for the house. Here’s some of my recent purchases that I don’t regret buying! Picked up this adorable Wanderlust Watch on sale from Happy Trunk. I got the tan band. Treated myself to a new Kate Spade purse and am absolutely loving the color and pattern for summer. I haven’t worn non-skinny jeans in years but I’m happy that the flared style is back in. I got a few really comfy pairs from […]
Does anyone have the problem of saving a ton of recipes that look really good, forgetting about them and then feeling like you cook the same meals over and over? I do!

So, I’m determined to try some of these delicious looking recipes this Summer! Spinach Dip Mozzarella Sticks Guacamole Deviled Eggs Slow Cooker Barbacoa Beef Tacos Puff Pastry Salmon Wellington No-Bake Oreo Pie Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake Peach Iced Tea Whiskey Death By Chocolate Are you a fan of recipe videos? Do you have any recipes in mind for this Summer?? Linking up with Annie and Amanda.
Okay, every month I write down my goals and I think “I got this! I’m going to finish all these in a few days!” Suddenly, it’s the last week of the month and I realized I completely put them on the back burner and got way too caught up in life. That is definitely what happened in May, I’m not even going to recap my May Goals because only a little progress was made (mainly the fun one – getting a massage) and I’m resetting most of them. In my defense, I did just change jobs so most of my focus was on that this past month. I do feel like I’m starting to find a good balance in life lately between work, working out, […]
