Since traveling for the last four months, I’ve realized that my long-term friendships have been tested and lucky for me, survived the distance.

Ya, We Wore It: Hawaii

Happy Monday Kiddos! I’m back on the blog and have linked pretty much everything that I wore while I was away in Hawaii.

Most of these items run true to size (I wear a size small for clothes), though for bikinis and bathers, I wear a size medium because I prefer how…

Coachella for Basics.

Countdown to Coachella is ON and so I had to bring on a podcast guest who is an expert in all things #Chella. I met the gorgeous Michelle – @michelleinfusino – the last time I was in LA and shot with her for a day. We quickly hit it off and I have been stalking her ever since. Beyond her gorgeous Mila Kunis looks, she has one of the sweetest personalities and little did I know before I interview, she is wise…
