Hey babes! 4th of July is just around the corner - can you believe it?! Below are some of my favorite festive pieces for America's b-day. ;)
Everyone who knows me knows I run on coffee….and an occasional taco, but mostly coffee. It’s my truest love and we’re likely in this for life. Just sipping that freshly brewed cup to start my day brings me so much joy and makes me feel excited to get to work. Until I see my teeth on camera or in the mirror, that is. Coffee: I love you, but you stain the life out of my pearly whites.
Hi bbys! Happy Friday. 

It's no secret that I've been living on a plane these last few months. Ever since jumping over to full-time content creator in February I've taken advantage of the time flexibility and have booked myself up. With that said, staying fit and active has sort of taken a back seat in my current lifestyle, but that's something I've been working to change. So today I wanted to share some tips that have helped me with shifting my mentality when it comes to traveling and and staying active! 

1. Always pack a workout set
I know it seems very "on the nose" but you'd be surprised how much this changes your mindset while traveling. Just having your workout gear in your luggage can motivate you to get moving. This sweet set by Betsey Johnson has been my go-to in recent travels. It's super comfortable and I love that I get to express my sense of style while working out. The print is everything!


2. Do your research
Not every destination will have traditional gyms available for you, but you can totally get creative. Research local classes, nearby parks (if safe) or even apps you can use to stay active in your travels. It's all about finding what works for you and making it a priority. 

3. Schedule it in
I'm personally a morning workout type of gal because I like checking it off my list before I find a million excuses not to. When traveling, it helps if you set time aside for working out when you're making your itinerary or planning out your days away. That way, you'll have no excuse not to shake what your momma gave ya!

Now I'd love to hear from you guys. What's your favorite way to stay active while on the road?

Happy first day of summer, loves! Tho it seems like Mother Nature may be stuck in spring (this rain tho?) sunny days lie ahead. I'm sure of it!

With that in mind, I wanted to share some of my favorite trends I've spotted this season. If spring is any indication, summer will be all about pastels, tie-dye and some neon flares for me. Continue reading to catch some of my favorite pieces along with each trend!

Summer 2019 Trend Report

Pastels
It's no secret that I've been all about the pastel hues lately - I mean they've sorta taken over my feed. But apparently so is the rest of the world! I've been doing quite a bit of primary shopping research lately ( ...sorry credit cards!) and the trend is everywhere I look! From matching sets, to fun summer blazers and off-the-shoulder tops. 


Tie-Dye 
Unless you've been living under a rock lately, you most likely have seen this trend all over social lately. I was weary to try it at first, but after dipping my toes into the trend, I'm now hooked! I'll be the first to admit, it can be tricky to style. Once you find the right pieces for you, however, I promise you won't be able to get enough. It's also such a nostalgic trend! Summer camp, DIY tie-dye, anyone? 


Neon
Ok so this is a trend I'm sort of salty about. Why you may ask? Because this "trend" was my jam back in high school, before it was "cool" to look like a highlighter head-to-toe. I had this weird fixation with lime green and would even go as far as claiming it as my favorite color....I know, right?! Welp, thank God I held onto at least one piece of the many I had in the color back then because I'm ready to say yes to the trend this summer!


Biker Shorts
Another trend I couldn't quite "go for" when it first caught on but now I can't get enough. Can we please make biker shorts acceptable in all circumstances? They're just oh so comfortable and work with so many different styles! See below for some of my faves!


Hey babies! Writing to you all from the other side of the world...sorta. Currently enjoying my last few days in Holland before I go back to the states. Next up: Palm Springs! One of my absolute favorite places in the world. But before I head back west, I thought I'd put together a quick guide to some of the "Instagrammable" spots in Instagram-land aka L.A. :)
