Beating the Heat with Cool Gear! #HotintheCity

Every summer without fail my family makes a point of throwing a few barbecue’s – well, except for last summer. Last summer we were really busy and never managed to pull one together, so the second the weather began to heat up we made plans to go grillin’! Living in the city means having to … Continue reading

My Ultra-Glam Girls Night In with Sally Hansen! #IHeartMyNailArt

It’s not very often that I get to have a girls night in – so when I recently had the opportunity I pounced on it and went all out! I’d been planning to try out color blocking nail art styles and who better to be my guinea pigs then my girlfriends?! When I called up my friend … Continue reading

Get Playful with the Y-Volution YGlider!

My family and I are serious park junkies, we love to pack up a few snacks, maybe even a picnic basket and head to our local park. We usually bring along a plethora of toys – everything from basketballs and tennis rackets to sidewalk chalk. Spring is my favorite time to head out doors and … Continue reading

Summer, SOYJOY, and a Giveaway!

About a year ago I was introduced to the SOYJOY bar- and since then I’ve been a massive fan. Gluten free, and absolutely delicious- I always have one hidden inside my purse in case I’m in need of a snack or, as my little sister puts it, a “knosh”. This summer I was super busy. … Continue reading

Rich Girl/Poor Girl: Summer Scents

I love perfume, but unfortunately my life has been a mixed bag of scented experiences. Born into a cloud of over-excited heady perfume using relatives, I grew up leaning towards more subtle, fresh, and sweet scents. Having experienced breathing in one to many mouthfuls of some of my relatives alcohol heavy cologne (which I’m sure … Continue reading

I’ve always have had a thing for nautical themed items. Maybe it’s my love of the sea fostered by summers spent at the beach, or too many screenings of The Little Mermaid. Either way, I really love anything ship or sea themed- they all feel very romantic somehow. If you’re like me and love a … Continue reading

Last week I went to Chuck E. Cheese with the younger sibs for some fun and games- and I wanted to talk about that for a bit. For those of you who don’t know, Chuck E. Cheese is like an arcade chain for kids- and it’s hugely popular for birthday parties, school trips, and for … Continue reading

Summer Ready at Old Navy!

I absolutely love Old Navy- in fact, me and my best friend shop there all the time (and don’t get me started on their black Friday holiday sales). The selection, prices, and clothes are always the best (and most colorful). And my sister only buys her jeans from Old Navy. So I knew that if … Continue reading

Rich Girl/ Poor Girl: Summer Body Scrubs

I’ve posted before on my love for body scrubs- in particular my Kiehl’s  Creme de Corps body polish. However, I really like to switch things up and have chosen two new body scrubs that I really love for summer. The first one is my fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish. At first I was hesitant to … Continue reading

Thanks to Walgreens for underwriting this post. I was paid as a member of the Clever Girls Collective, but the content is all mine. Visit I cannot tell you how excited I am for the summer to roll around! I love everything about summer- the sun, days at the beach, picnicking in the park, … Continue reading
