Hey guys, happy Friday! Today's post is taking us back to last weekend to our little getaway in SF. These particular pictures are from our evening in Sausalito. Some of my friends and others on IG told us to visit this town, and I can see why they love it so much! It is such cool and quaint place, with a bunch of awesome little shops and restaurants lining the streets. We strolled up and down the streets of Sausalito and ate at a place called Fish that had delicious seafood and such a cool, kick-back atmosphere. I love this outfit, it's such a simple look, white tee and jeans, but I love the simplicity of it. Also, I must say I love my new shoes, Brod spoiled me with an early birthday gift and I am so loving them! Well, that is all I have today, but I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy time with those you love! Thanks for your love and support!

Beach Time + Nordstrom Sale
Thursday, July 21, 2016 12 Comments Images

Hey guys! Today I am throwing it back to the beach in San Diego! I found this cute swimsuit at Nordstrom and loved the way it fit and looked while on the sands of Mission Beach. As I have mentioned before, pretty much every day in San Diego was beach day, so having plenty of swimwear options was a must, and I have been a little bit addicted to finding new swimwear. Nordstrom has a great selection of suits and they actually have their anniversary sale starting on July 22nd!  I am so excited because I always find so many great pieces and fabulous pairs of shoes at the anniversary sale! I have linked the suit below so check it out! I hope you all have a fantastic day!

Hair Twist Tutorial...Finally!
Wednesday, July 20, 2016 7 Comments Images

Hello lovelies! Happy hump day! So, a bunch of you have asked about how I get my hair in the twists that I love to wear so much...and I finally did it!! Haha for reals though, sorry it took me so long, but I hope you love it! This summer I have had my hair in this little twist-do like lots and lots and it really is so easy to do. I shared some pics from our trip to San Diego where I had my hair in the twist pretty much every day, so you will get a feel for how it looks both in video and in pictures. That's all I have today, but I love you all and hope you have a fantastic Wednesday! Leave a comment here or on the gram and let me know what other tutorials you would like to see and I will start knocking them out!

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! I hope this little diddy finds you happy and well. Today's post is a quick look at our time in downtown San Franscisco. Brod and I love big cities, there is something about the energy and hustle and grind that comes with a big city, and we both find it so exciting and motivating. This trip we actually spent some time outside the city as well (I will share some of that in a later post), but this look was one I wore as we roamed downtown and explored the city. These pics were taken on Maiden Lane, a really cool little street that has a bunch of cool shops. This particular look is a pretty casual one, but one that I loved in the city. The mix of a leather jacket, hoody, leggings, and some Vans is a combo that I was digging while in SF. I found this faux leather jacket and instantly fell in love with it, not only because of the price point, but also because of the look and fit. The sweatshirt is super comfy and one that can be worn all the time, and of course you can't go wrong with Vans. I love the look of these Vans and think they are especially fitting for a street look. What are some of your favorite street looks? Are you a Vans fan, or do you prefer other sneakers? I would love to hear your ideas and feedback on street looks and sneakers. Also, after spending the weekend in SF, I am curious to hear what other big cities you all love to visit? And why? Please share, we love to travel and are always looking for new places to visit with the boys and I love hearing why people love the places that they do. Anyhow, I hope you all have a fantastic day! I love you all!

Challenge yourself. Just do it.
Monday, July 18, 2016 19 Comments Images

Good morning guys! I hope you all had a great weekend and are excited to begin a new week. Today, I have teamed up with Nike again to talk about their 30-day Throwdown challenge, as well as discuss the importance of pushing yourself to mix it up, stretch yourself, and strive to get ahead of yourself. The 30-day challenge (as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago) is pretty awesome. Nike brings a challenge to the table to gear up and grab a pair of the Nike Free's and try them, wear them, test them, and push them for 30 days, and if you don't like them, send them back. Believe me though, you will like them, and if you're like me, you will love them. They are built for more dynamic movement and made to better fit your foot, so that as you run, jump, and train, the shoe expands and contracts with you. The design and look of them is clean and sexy, and they are the perfect combination of comfort and performance. I love the idea of the Nike Free challenge, because as I have focused more on my own fitness and staying fit, I have recognized the importance of challenging myself to work harder, smarter, and to mix up my routine/regimen. One thing I have noticed is that it's so easy to plateau when you do the same workout at the same reps and same weights day in and day out. It is easy to comfortable in a routine, but that is not what will push you to improved results. Lately I have been doing my best to mix in new exercises, push myself to add in more reps or more weight, and really go as hard as I can each hour I spend in the gym. This mentality of "getting ahead of yourself," has helped to remind me that each day is a battle within to work harder and push my limits mentally and physically.

I encourage you all to take the Nike Free Challenge and get a feel for the Nike Free's yourself. You be the decision maker as to whether the shoe is for you or not! Also, I challenge each of you to mix up your routine, push your body to its limits each day, and challenge yourself. I promise you won't be disappointed if you do, and you will find you are more capable than you ever thought you were. Have a great day! Thanks for following, your support means the world to me.

It's all in the details

Good morning to all you beautiful people! Today is all about how accessories can make or complete a look. I have teamed up with Sole Society to show you that sometimes it's the little details in an outfit that make a big difference. I love the options and variety that is provided by Sole Society. They have high quality pieces, ranging from handbags to accessories (or as pictured below, sandals and scarves) that allow you to create your own look and be true to your own style, without sacrificing quality or missing trends. They keep their pieces up to date and on point with what is hot and trending which allows you to add a little here and there, whilst still maintaining a look that is fresh. I absolutely love accessories and playing around with them to try new combinations. I like to step outside what I would "normally" wear (like I did with this scarf) and see what new ideas I can put together to complete a look. What are some of your favorite accessories? What combinations of accessories do you most often pair together? Are you a sunglasses and handbag type? I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas! Remember that when completing a look with accessories, sometimes less is more, and sometimes more is better haha, it all depends on the look and upon your style. Check out Sole Society if you haven't already, their selection is fantastic and the quality is always top notch. Have a wonderful day! I love you all!
