HIlton Head Girls Getaway

Happy Friday Foxy Friends! So sad that I'm not with The Blended Blog ladies any more, but so, so grateful for the 5 days I got to spend with them. Thank you to Mr. for holding down the fort while I was gone. I won't go into all the boring details, but let me recap the long weekend for you.

It started out rough, 9 hours on a plane, followed by 2.5 hours at the airport, followed by 4 hour drive from Charlotte to Savannah. My day started at 2:30am PST, and ended at 1am EST...long day, but I finally got there! Bonus that they found my luggage, after it and me didn't make our connecting flight.


Friday, it was so good to see all the girls! Reuntied after 17 months of planning! Way too long, but so worth it to get 5 whole days together! Well 4.5 but let's round up. First thing we had to do was drive the the airport to drop off the van I rented and pick up another van to avoid the high one way fees, and pick up Lana's luggage, so it worked out. Then we went shopping!!!




Successful shopping trip!


Saturday Deena made crepes...yum!


Then we all headed down to the beach for a bit.




Went to lunch where we could walk there, that was nice.


Then did some pool time.


We all decided we wanted to do fancy dinner Saturday, so we got dolled up.


But first some shopping! Cause duh.


Took forever to seat us...


I got the corn soup and we all got some guac, both were delicious!


Sunday Shaunacey made a gorgeous breakfast spread.


Some of us went shopping, while two of them stayed behind the beach and pool. We only had 3 hours to shop till we dropped...we took advantage of every minute. I might have bought two purses from Kate Spade.


She bought two of these, one for her and one for her sister because she's a bad sharer.


Then we headed back to pick up the girls and grab some lunch.


Gotta love portrait mode.


After lunch we hit up a few stores that we wanted to see. And went gator hunting.



Then headed back to the house to relax.


Sunday night we decided to do what girlfriends do and go to the movies. We went and saw A Star is Born, I liked it, the singing was amazing.


Monday we had to say goodbye to Lana, so we headed into Savannah to explore a bit before her flight.




Lunch, yum.



One last picture together...wahhh!!!


Monday night we pretty much hung out and did nothing...then just before sunset we decided to go get some pictures, we got ready in about 5 minutes and drove the 1 minute to the beach, cause we were losing light.


What a picture session with out a jumping one? This is the best we got.





We went back and ate all the food and drank all the things. And played games....it was such a great weekend.



Thank you ladies for the most memorable trip, for relaxing, shopping and doing all the thing girlfriends do. I don't even know what my world would be without you! Until next year!

Love you!

Graphic Sweatshirt

Hi Foxy Friends! Coming back from Hilton Head from a blogger meet up, and I had so much fun! We had a blast hanging out, talking about all the things, laughing, eating, drinking all the wine, and laughing, did I mention that? Stay tuned for a recap. But today on The Blended Blog, we're talking Graphic shirts. I'm sharing with you something I picked up while on the trip. It is the most comfortable, softest sweater ever! Everyone should have one.

This picture is real life...I'm laughing because it's windy and my hair was flying all over the place and I was trying to be serious and take a picture...it didn't work.



I love hanging out with other bloggers because they understand how hard it is go get picture of yourself in outfits...I'm liking that I didn't have to even put shoes on. Thank you to the lovely Deena for taking these photos.

Hair is crazy and big and dirty, but not caring because I was on the beach taking pictures with friends.

I did really love this weekend, actually the last 5 days, it was the best trip, and I'm coming home rejuvenated and ready to tackle life. Now head on over to The Blended Blog to link up your fashion post!

One Health Tip That Doesn't Include Working Out

Hi Foxy Friends! Happy Monday. Okay I lied, the last 3 days I've been vacationing with some fellow Blended Bloggers and I got some inspiration. I wasn't originally going to post, but realized I did have something to say about some Health Tips.



Most people think health tips include...

1. Eat healthy food
2. Work Out
3. Get enough sleep
4. Drink enough water
5. Avoid excessive drinking and smoking

I'm here to tell you what the health tips don't say...make some time for yourself! I can't tell you how great I feel, getting some time away from Mom life, time with my friends, laughing, eating, and having nothing on the schedule but eating, shopping and enjoying the sunshine. Like I said on Monday, make time for yourself,  don't feel guilty, it's part of living a healthy, well rounded life.

Head on over to The Blended Blog to see some other Healthy Tips.

Girls Weekend, See you Wednesday!

Happy Friday Foxy Friends! It's currently 1:49am eastern and I just had the traveling day from hell. I thought I would have all this time to type up a post, but nope, the weather had something else in store for me today, so after 9 hours in a plane and 4 hours in a car (not including the hour it took me to get to the airport), I'm finally here with some of The Blended Blog Ladies!

So if you need me I'll be laughing, shopping, talking, eating and drinking with these lovely ladies!


And these lovely ladies


And we can't forget the lovely Shaunacey, about to go back to work next week from maternity leave. What a way to end maternity leave!


Alright, even though my West Coast body is saying not bed time yet, but East Coast friends are going to be up early.

Happy Weekend friends, hope it is a great one and you are enjoying all things Fall!

Favorite Jeans and Camo Look

Hi Foxy Friends! Happy Wednesday, it's my last day of work this week, woo hoo! I'm headed off to a girls weekend to meet up with some of the ladies from The Blended Blog. Last time we were together was in Toronto, and we had such a blast. We decided that it wasn't enough time together, so this time we're spending Thursday through Tuesday together, woo hoo!

Today the theme of the week is favorite jeans. I just bought these jeans at the nordstrom anniversary sale and I'm loving them! So soft and a great price too!


Jeans / Shirt / Vest / Boots (similar)

I am loving this shirt so much too. I recently bought it when I was out returning stuff to Nordstrom. Of course I was walking past this and it was practically calling my name and jumping out at me. I grabbed it as I was walking by, tried it on and didn't care that it was full price. That's how soft it is!

I added a vest to keep my torso warm during this fall season we're having. It's slightly cooler (meaning low 60's) in the morning, so this is a perfect addition to the outfit.



Make Up: Foundation / Eye ShadowEyeLashes Blush Eyeliner / Eyeliner for cat eye  / translucent powder/ Lipstick is Lipsense (Nude Pink, Bella, Nude Pink)

Then in the late morning, I can take the vest off and still have a super cute outfit.



My necklace is from BEXO, she has the cutest jewelry EVER! Her moon necklaces are to die for. I have it in black, which it looks like she doesn't have any more.


What are your favorite jeans lately? I'm also loving this burgundy pair of jeans.
