For relaxing by the pool :Fools Gold: Frank Ocean

For dancing around in your underwear :Don't Stop the Party: Black Eyed Peas

For consuming adult beverages...haha :Guiness Flow: Chiddy Bang

For jamming out in the car :Coming Up: Lupe Fiasco

For singing in the shower: Tiny Dancer: Dj Ill Will 

Happy singing, dancing, drinking, and relaxing :)

Home Furnishings

I have always loved white linens, clean lines, and bright accents colors for decorating.  So when it comes to furnishing the most important room in your home, you want it to reflect your personality, in a peaceful and inviting way of course!  Stores such as Crate and Barrel, Anthropologie, and Z GALLERIE carry all the things you'll need!

:Here is the room I recently fell in love with from Anthropologie, my inspiration to redecorate:

:And in order to recreate this look, here is what you need:

:This classic mirrored, 7-drawer dresser from Z GALLERIE reflects the light in the early morning and has enough room on the top to double as a vanity:

:The bright yellow in the chair adds color to the room, while the white circle design picks up the ivory comforter.  Crate and Barrel has created a masterpiece!:

:For bedding, Anthropolgie has this rouched, volie duvet cover to make the room simple and elegant all in one piece of fabric:

:Finally for lighting, add this fun flowerly lamp to your room! It ties in all of the colors in the palette, and its 3D flowers make for a once of a kind item:

Yay for decorating! 
Keep it simple and sophisticated :)

What's your Philosophy?

Quirky slogans, nostalgic 50's photographs, and delicious scents.  The skin care brand Philosophy has been a favorite of mine for years.  Their product line includes cinnamon bun body wash, vanilla cake bubble bath, and their famous "hope in a jar" moisturizer.  With each yummy indulgence, they include a recipe on the front of the bottle to take your experience from the shower to the kitchen!  Philosophy also creates adorable gift sets with themes for any kind of party or celebration.  Their motto is clean and their purpose is simple :) , isn't that what we want out of the people looking after our skin?
It's the simple things, that make life just a little bit better :)

You can never be too old to own a coloring book.  As a gift for my 20th birthday, my mom purchased "My Wonderful World of Fashion" for me, which was an immediate favorite.  I've used it in class, waiting for an appointment, or when I'm bored on a rainy day.  There are hundreds of pages filled with fashions to color in, create, and dream up :).

You can buy one for yourself at Anthropologie!

Age is only a number :)

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming...

The sun is slowly peeking out from behind the clouds, the grass is greener...


The pool is OPEN!

Which means...back to my life-guarding job for another summer.  So in honor of this time of the year, I want to share my favorite scene from the move "The Sandlot":


:And also my favorite tanning lotion:

This bottle is made and created in Hawaii.  The ingredients include
    Macadamia Nut Oil, Kukui Nut Oil, Aloe, Kona Coffee Extract and vitamins. Yum!!

Going with the recent theme in my life...
I've been eating, dreaming, and wearing...


Personally I love them in anything from a smoothie to a salad, but here is my favorite recipe of the moment:
:Mini Strawberry Cheescakes from Williams-Sonoma:

For the topping:

  • 1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbs. sugar
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice

For the filling:

  • 1 1/4 lb. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 Tbs. all-purpose flour 
For the rest of the recipe go to the Williams-Sonoma website :)

If you want to wear strawberries (perfect for the summer)...
Betsey Johnson just created this over-sized ring,

Or you could purchase Juicy Couture's chocolate dipped strawberry charm...
When it comes to dreaming about strawberries, I'll leave that up to your imagination... Happy almost summer!
