kauai, hawaii


I just got back from the most amazing vacation in Hawaii, and friends, I cannot express enough how amazing that place is. I fell head over heels in love with Kauai, the mountains, the beaches, the locals, the food, everything was simply incredible and I cannot wait to go back. I’m gonna warn you, this place might start getting inundated with pictures from my trip, I apologize in advance, but as my husband and I kept saying, it is impossible to take a bad picture there.

new orleans


Last week, I took a much too short trip to New Orleans to meet up with two of my favorite ladies in the world. Long story short, we met in college when the three of us were part of a collegiate club, went to New Orleans back then to participate in a conference and had such a great time that we swore we’d return someday and after some drunken text messages one night, the plan was set in motion, we were going back.

A couple of days of poolside naps, good food, yummy drinks and sharing hilarious stories went by way too fast but it was exactly what I needed. I cannot wait to go back and to hang with my gals again sometime in the near future.

I know what you’re thinking, she must really like that polka-dot shirt, and you are absolutely right because that shirt is totally becoming my summer staple.

Our recent vacation truly felt like paradise, maybe it was because the weather was perfect as opposed to other years or maybe we just both really needed the time away. Either way, it was a marvelous time.



I’m signing off this week as the mister and I are headed on a small vacation. I have two very special guest bloggers posting so make sure to stop by and check ’em out! Here’s hoping the rain doesn’t interfere with my pool time. I’ll be on twitter and instagram if you guys wanna follow along on our adventure. Ciao lovelies!

I must be honest, my vacation is two weeks away and although I have a ton of work before I go, all I can think about is sitting by the pool with a drink in hand. Naturally, I’ve been looking at swimsuits and happened upon the awesome pieces from Minnow Bathers. I’ve got my eye on this baby in particular.

Just a few instagram shots of my whirlwind trip to NYC this past week. It was hard to squeeze so many things I wanted to do in two days and I definitely wish I could’ve had more time to spend with my sister but I had a great, great time.
