Siesta Key Beach


When I was visiting Ashley, she was shocked to find out that I had never been to Siesta Key Beach, a gorgeous beach on the West Coast of Florida about an hour or so south of Tampa.

Coming Up Roses: Skincare, Self Care, and Su:m 37 Miracle Rose Cleanser



When I was younger, with far fewer responsibilities and significantly more disposable income, I always took the time take care of my skin and invest in high quality skincare products. Much of this is the result of having systic acne at a very young age and consequently adopting a routine of creams, medications, and moisturizers from a very young age. More recently, life has taken me off course and I've really neglected myself the last few years. The trials and tribulations of a long distance relationship, 4 moves, a full time, stressful job, planning a wedding immediately followed by a difficult pregnancy and delivery meant that for the several years, I've been lucky if I put on sunscreen, let alone the serums and moisturizers I use to routinely use.

Drinks on the Dot



Dots are always in style and you'll never go wrong with a good pair of black pumps. I like to invest in classic pieces and pick up trendy or cute accessories I can accent with. And let's not forget, a purse always fits! If you follow me on Instagram, you've seen this clutch quite a bit, and it's one of my favorites.

The Sweetest Lemons


My first trip to Old Florida we spent some time at the Gasparilla Inn and Beach Club. The Beach Club has the cutest umbrellas with yellow stripes that matched my top and bag perfectly! It's so quiet and relaxing there, and guests have access to a private beachfront...if you're not so into sandy crevices, you can sit next to the pool or do a few laps and enjoy an ocean view while listening to the waves!
