I almost forgot about this look until I went through our Canada photos again.Β  First off, I still can’t get over how stunning Canada is. If you’re planning a trip, I highly recommend going to Banff National Park! Between Lake Louise, Moraine Lake & Lake Minnewanka, I have never seen more beautiful scenery. The water is literally turquoise blue & looks like a painting. I wish I could go back again right now because it is insanely beautiful! If you couldn’t tell, I’m having major withdrawals πŸ™‚

Now onto this look.. I know some people might not be massive fans of the poncho/cape trend but I am quite obsessed. I was a bit iffy when I first saw it & when I showed Adam this particular piece, he was a bit iffy as well. BUT when I pulled this out of the box, both of our minds were completely changed & my obsession began. These ponchos are honestly perfect for when the temperatures drop. They’re easy to throw on over an outfit & can turn something basic into a stand out look. Plus, they are beyond comfy & feel like you’re wearing a blanket out in public, without actually wearing a blanket. There are so many fun ponchos/capes out right now but I will admit that this plaid poncho is definitely my favorite! It’s very reasonably priced & it comes in another color so in my opinion, it’s a no brainer. In case you’re not into the plaid, I listed some more of my favorite choices below.

You probably saw this look a few days ago when I posted our picnic on the beach here but I just couldn’t resist posting more photos of this look πŸ™‚ This day at the beach was so much fun! The weather wasn’t sunny or completely ideal but it just goes to show that you can have fun in any condition. June gloom has been going on for a good solid two months on & off but that hasn’t stopped us from having beach days. I honestly don’t like going to the beach when it’s hot outside because I feel like I’m going to pass out from heat exhaustion haha. Moral of the story, I have an obsession with this white lace romper & honestly just white rompers in general. I think that if you have a white romper in your Summer wardrobe, you are set! I found some of my favorite white rompers above in case you guys are looking to add one to your wardrobe.

On another completely different note, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has started!!! If you’re a Nordstrom Rewards Member, you can shop the sale early from the 9th-17th! If you’re not a Rewards Member, don’t worry because you can start shopping on the 17th πŸ˜‰ You guys know how I feel about sales… Is it even necessary at this point to go on my typical rant? Probably not but to make a long story short (in case you are new around here) I can’t pass up a sale. There is just something in my DNA that makes me not be able to pass up a deal. I know, it’s a problem & I’m currently working on it haha. Stay tuned for my favorites from the sale & to see what I purchase. In all reality, who can resist buying pieces on sale before they go to full price!? #shopaholicsanonymous πŸ™‚

Happy Monday!!

We had such a fun weekend celebrating the 4th of July here in LA! I love holiday weekends because it means I get to spend even more time with Kannon & Adam πŸ™‚ Don’t worry, I didn’t forget what the holiday is truly about though, I’m incredibly thankful for the freedom we have & for the people who are fighting for our freedom on a daily basis. We spent the 4th with our friends Julie & John (you might know her from her blog here). They have a little boy about 9 months younger than Kannon & it was so nice to have the little boys to play with each other. Oh & thank goodness they understand life with a little one because Kannon decided it was a nice time to start coloring on walls with a crayon. Seriously though, he decided that a friends house was the perfect place to start. Thankful that it came right off with a magic eraser! All in all though, it was a wonderful weekend spent with family & friends πŸ™‚

I wore this cobalt floral dress last week in San Diego & I just love this little flowy dress so much. You all know how much I love a good floral print & this cobalt floral is bright, colorful & perfect for Summer. I love that this dress can be worn dressed down for the pool or beach but I also think it would make the perfect dress for a Summer wedding. I love finding a good print where the colors are so vibrant & this one seriously just makes me swoon! Plus, this dress is on sale for $27!! & since it’s in stock in every size, it’s really hard to pass up a steal like that πŸ™‚

Makeup For Photo Shoots

Makeup for Photo Shoots

With being a blogger comes a lot of photos & videos. With a lot of photos & videos comes a lot of makeup. With a lot of makeup comes a lot of tips & tricks learned over the years. Moral of the story? I have now become a beauty junky & I am constantly on the search for new products & methods to create the perfect makeup look. I’m definitely not a beauty guru but I’ve come a long way πŸ™‚

I have been asked on quite a few occasions for tutorials on how I do my makeup in certain blog posts. I’ve been trying to film more Get Ready With Me (GRWM) videos so that you guys can see what products I’m using for each look & how I’m applying the makeup. (SO if you aren’t subscribed to my YouTube channel yet, head on over & subscribe now!) I got asked on Instagram last week if I would film a video on how I do my makeup for photo shoots & I immediately accepted because I thought it was a great idea for a video. Back in the day, I didn’t wear much makeup & honestly up until the past couple of years, I was still trying to figure out how to do my makeup. After years of modeling, you would have thought I had it figured out but it took a lot of experimenting with different products to finally learn how to do it in a way that made me feel comfortable & confident.

If you have any other video suggestions that you guys would like to see, feel free to leave them in the comments below or comment on an Instagram photo. I love hearing from you guys & I especially love creating content that you guys really want to see. I’m constantly trying to come up with new ideas & looks to make this space a creative outlet for not only myself but for you guys as well. I hope you guys enjoy the video!

Last week was my brother’s birthday & my birthday was on Saturday (I’m the big 2-5 now guys!) Since our birthdays are so close together, we have a tradition every year where we go out to dinner to celebrate. It’s honestly something I look forward to every year! This year we went to a place here in Los Angeles called Toca Madera & it was SO good! I got the Crispy Seabass Tacos & for dessert, the Churro Ice Cream Sandwich (which was the best thing I’ve ever eaten!!!).

I wore this cream dress from Faviana with a red blazer for a fun pop of color. I love this dress because it’s perfect for a night out or even for a wedding (it comes in multiple colors so you wouldn’t be wearing white to a wedding ;)). I added these snake print heeled sandals for a pop of pattern & also because they’re extremely comfortable. I love how fun & feminine this look was & just felt it was the perfect look to celebrate. I hope you guys had a wonderful weekend! Can’t wait to post a recap of my weekend for you guys πŸ™‚

A couple weekends ago, I had the opportunity to attend Ipsy’s Generation Beauty event here in LA. First off, it was so much fun!! Second, I loved this bright white look I wore to it. I have been loving wearing white lately because it just looks so clean & put together, even when paired with a pair of denim. I have been wearing this white vest way too often lately but I love the layered look & a vest is perfect for layering during Summer. These lace up flats are still one of my favorite pairs so be prepared to see them more! I hope you guys are having a fab week so far πŸ™‚

Maxi dresses are a wardrobe staple for Summer. The light fabric & print on this black floral maxi dress make it the perfect choice for a warm Summer day or a cool Summer night. I love transitional pieces because you can take one piece of clothing & make it work for multiple seasons. Plus, thisΒ dress is only $23!!! I honestly don’t think you can beat that! Since this dress is completely sheer, I just wore a slip dress underneath it but it’s also perfect for a beach or pool day because it can be worn as a swimsuit cover up. I was so bummed to see that this fringe bag is sold out but found two almost identical options & one is only $32! Basically, this whole look is a total steal & you guys know I love good deals πŸ™‚
