5 Things

1 // Butcher’s Daughter in BROOKLYN

This news made me crazy happy. Every time I’m in Manhattan I find myself at a Butcher’s Daughter getting avo toast and an amazing smoothie. Real delicious fuel to help my legs walk obscene distances in one of my favorite cities. Now they are in Williamsburg (which is special place for Nick and I) so now I can’t wait to frequent this location. #pumped

2 // Kiehl’s EYE Booster

Thanks to the folks at Kiehl’s I’ve been trying their new Youth Dose Eye Treatment and so far I love it. If I were to be overly critical about my face it would be the fine lines around my eyes – “happy lines, they say!” but still anything to help brighten and smooth the skin around my eyes is a WIN in my book. I don’t need anything complicated otherwise I won’t use it – this product, however, is easy peasy and under $50! #sponsored

3 // California Weekend Mag

When I stumbled upon them on Instagram back when they started I knew they were going to turn into something cool. Not only is their feed literally a “California dream” but their content is stellar too. With Highway 1 back open at Big Sur I love that they put this road trip article together all based on where to EAT. YES!Β  Also with a trip to SF next week posts about the Dorian (good eats, apparently!) and Dogpatch’s Third Street Guide might come in handy.

4 // What BOWIE Said

What a wise, creative and super talented man. When it comes down to it – don’t we all want to be aging than dealing with the alternative? It takes time, experiences, hardships and joys to create the person that shines out today. So forgive me for using the youth dose eye serum, it’s just called “maintenance.”

5 // James Perse’s (OLD) Malibu Home

So this stunner just sold for over $12 million. I seriously LOVE everything about this place. From the dark exterior to the laid back, coastal vibe of the inside. I mean, it’s perfection. image:Β (Nikolas Koenig)

A Summer Lake Look

When (I thought) J.Crew was having a major sale about a week or so ago, I stocked up on a few swim suits, this sweater, this ($18!) tote and these gold cross over flat sandals. I figured being in Florida and all, summer lasts awhile and these will certainly get good mileage out of it. Lo and behold they are STILL having a major sale with 50% off their sale styles with code: BIGGESTSALE (links to shop below)

This look is pretty patriotic, I know – somehow denim, navy and red really never go out of style.

This backdrop was perfect for this look and I was SO happy when Sydney and I stumbled upon it. Winter Park has a chain of lakes – which dock shoots are a favorite of mine, but if you want to know a crazy fact Florida has 30,000 lakes. How crazy does that sound? Surrounded by water, but also made up of a ton of water – lake and beach activities are abundant and I’m totally okay with that.

Life Lately

usually consists of my kid and food. like so.

Summer Adventures in Abercrombie & Fitch

Summer is the time to travel, take time off, explore and be present.

We’ve already been to Panama City Beach, Naples, Boca Grande and in two weeks we head out to California to see my sister and besties for the Outside Lands Festival.

It’s one of my favorite things – having a trip planned out in advance – because it gives me something to look forward to. When life gets on the routine soap box and doesn’t stop it’s a nice reminder that

Hey! It’s all temporary! Fun stuff is coming up and that’s really cool. Now, breathe.

Plus, I loveeee traveling with my guys – Nick is like a total pro – but Hudson really gets into it too now and it’s really fun to see. He pushes our luggage (Away suitcases alll the way!) and is awesome at picking plane snacks πŸ™‚

This will be our first musical festival as a fam though – Outside Lands is a favorite of ours (we’ve been a couple times) so I’m PUMPED to play around Golden Gate park with my family and listen to good music. I’m thinking I might do a post about bringing your kid to a music festival afterward – we’ll see how we do.

Enough about me – what’s on YOUR summer vacay list?! Disney World? Gotta love that guy.

A Natural Skin Care Giveaway with Shop January

I’m so excited to partner with this sweet (Florida based) online shop – Shop January!

They reached out to me to see I was interested in trying an organic small batch skin care line that they carry. I’m trying to educate myself more on what I’m putting on my skin and I felt this was a great opportunity to work with some local ladies and try some healthy/organic products at the same time.

They sent me the Terrene Aloe Rescue Cleanser, Hydra Serum and Eclat Serum. Of course the packaging is cute, the hand written batch dates are a nice touch and the price tags are super reasonable.


I’ve learned to adjust my skin routine based on how my skin looks/feels, so I don’t use the same products necessarily every day, so when these came into the mix I was eager to try.

The Aloe Rescue might be my favorite since it’s such a moisturizing cleanser – my skin feels silky soft when I use it. This oil cleanser is also nutrient dense enough to use alone as your night oil or to mix a drop in with your moisturizer. JACKPOT!

Now the good stuff – one lucky winner will receive ALL three Terrene products to try out themselves. To enter, head to my Instagram and follow the giveaway rules!Β 

Good luck friends and happy Friday!


My New Favorite Dress from Splendid

I was seriously giddy when Splendid reached out about collaborating – being the coastal cool brand that they are – I’ve always admired their asethetic and have slowly curated a few pieces of theirs on my own.

This dress, is by far, one of my favorite pieces I’ve ever had from Splendid. It’s casual, the perfect shade of dusty rose and has fun details. I’m wearing a medium and it fits perfectly. I paired it with fun Rifle Paper Co x Keds sneaks and a trendy Kate Spade NY bag – seriously, I would wear this any day of the week. BIG FAN.
