Today is one of my favorite days of the year – Happy Independence Day everyone! The 4th of July has a very special place in my heart, every year I look forward to family barbecues, parades, fireworks and of course celebrating the good old USA. In New Jersey this is a really popular time to go down the shore – the beaches are in full swing with beautiful views of the coast. If you read my blog you already know my favorite place is Long Branch. I love spending time on the beach and strolling around Pier Village to grab lunch and Acai Bowls. The last time Andy and I took a trip to Long Branch we stayed at the beautiful Bungalow Hotel, which is where these photos were taken. If you are anything like me you’re already obsessed with the “white on white” interior. I took inspiration from this hotel and completely transformed my bedroom this past month – I love to decorate! I will show you guys photos of the makeover on the blog soon.
After a few very hectic weeks, we are finally at the finish line. Andy and I are getting married in 23 days! It’s going to be an emotional milestone for us because it shows how far we have come in love, in life – all of it. I feel so lucky to be able to celebrate this moment with my family and friends and most importantly, to have Andy by myside.
So in the midst of all this wedding planning I’ve also been packing for our honeymoon. New trip means new clothes right? During my search for pretty summer essentials I came across an amazing new brand called Auoi.
Travel season is here! Whether it’s a weekend getaway or an overseas vacation – rounding up your favorite hair and beauty essentials can be a complicated combination. Traveling light doesn’t mean you have to say bon voyage to your favorite products, especially when it comes to your hair. I put that to the test during a recent trip to Long Branch, New Jersey. I stayed at the beautiful Bungalow Hotel, which is just steps from the beautiful Atlantic Ocean – and this time I decided I wasn’t going to over pack on hair care. Aside from a blow dryer (which was provided by the hotel) the only hair products I brought with me was my T3 Micro Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe. For a beach getaway, they are a great low maintenance essential. I love using the rollers for textured waves and of course volume. View Post
Someone once told me that traveling is an essential part of life. Going to new places, meeting new people and taking time to reflect on yourself is what fundamentally transforms us into who we become. Andy and I have traveled the country together, but one thing we failed to truly explore is the very state we live in: New Jersey. After getting engaged we promised each other that we would take advantage and explore the beautiful Garden State. So, this past weekend we decided to go the beach. We jumped on the Parkway and headed to Long Branch.
There is something about the basics that never goes out of style. A white top and jeans – it’s a simple and effortless combination that flatters everyone, male or female. It’s also the best option when you’ve run out of options – or when you’re late to your “catch up” coffee date with friends. From your boyfriend’s t-shirt, to ripped jeans, and chiffon blouses this look has tons of variety. Designers like Stella McCartney and Alexander Wang also like to rock this combination on the runways. It’s a look that can go from day to night in the matter of minutes, just switch out your flats for a pretty wedge or heel.
