Colors of Happiness
Friday, April 21, 2017 6 Comments Images

Hey gang! Happy happy Friday! The weekend is here and  I look forward to spending some time with my dudes and friends! What do all of you have planned for the weekend? Before I leave you for the weekend, I wanted to quickly share a look back to the colorful city of Cartagena. These pictures capture the beauty and simplicity of the city, and as I look at them all I want to do is go back. Downtown was speckled with differently colored walls pretty much every block. It was so cool, one minute the buildings were pink and the next they were blue. There were also flower covered and beautifully decorated balconies everywhere you looked. It's one of those places that is hard to fully describe, you kind of have to experience if for yourselves. These pics were from one afternoon of Brod and I just chilling in our house downtown and then an afternoon of exploring the city. Cartagena and Colombia in general is definitely a place that we want to go back and visit! It was such a fun and magical place! Well, I am going to sign off now, I hope you all have a fab weekend and thank you so much for following! I linked the swimsuit and coverup I am wearing below at the bottom of the post, so be sure to check them out if you dig them! Love you all!

Hey gang! Happy humpday! It's a beautiful day to be alive and I am coming at you with some of the latest pieces from caralorenshop today! These pieces are perfect for the Spring and are going to go fast, so get on over to the shop and check them out! It's been one of those weeks that seems to be crazy busy and yet super productive here at our house. The boys are loving the warmer weather and playing outside and other than the fact that sunshine mean more golf, I am loving it too haha! I hope you guys are all having a wonderful day and I want to thank you again for all of your support, not only here on caraloren.com, but across all of my platforms, and over on caralorenshop as well. Seriously, I can't put into words how much your support and kind words mean to me. You inspire me everyday and I love to hear from you! Please leave your comments here, or on IG or FB, or shoot me an email because I love to hear from you and hear your feedback and hear your stories! As for a quick breakdown on the pieces pictured below...I love them! The dress is bright, clean, and fits any Spring time event that you may have or works as something light and fun to wear on a night or day out on the town! The second piece pictured is a top that can be worn together (as shown) or as a separates. I love the simplicity and versatility of it and that it can be paired easily with jeans, or other bottoms as well. They both fit well and run pretty true to size, and as I said above, they are going to go fast, so snag them while you can! Thanks again for following and I hope you all have a fabulous day!

The Island Life
Sunday, April 16, 2017 6 Comments Images

Happy Monday guys! I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter holiday and were able to spend time with those you love most! We had a fantastic Easter here in the VB household, we spent the day at church and with both of our families, just chilling and eating some delicious food, and it I loved every minute of it. I don't know what it is with holidays but I seriously can't and don't stop eating. Anyone else in that boat?! Please tell me yes because I swear I ate over one thousand marshmallow chocolate eggs yesterday! Not to mention the two giant dinners I had too haha!

Any who, to start of the week and motivate me to get my butt back in gear after a holiday of eating and more eating, I am taking it back to our time on the most beautiful island in Cartagena. So I may have shared a bit about this before but after arriving in Cartagena day one, we had the opportunity to take a boat out to a private island and spend the day there. And let me just say that it was dreamy. I had never had an island to ourselves before and this was truly a day in paradise! We kicked it in the sun, paddle boarded, swam in the ocean, chatted and chilled the entire day. It was such a beautiful place to be, the water was a gorgeous cool blue and the perfect temperature to swim in, and the beaches were amazing. As I look at these pics I am hoping to get some Monday motivation to get my booty back in swimsuit shape and hit it hard again this week. I hope you guys all have a great Monday as well and make the choice to make this day great! Brod always says that we only get each day once so I am going to do my best to enjoy and make the most of this new day! Thank you all for following, I love you all and hope you have a great Monday!!
