Hey babes! Hope you’re having a great week. I thought I’d make it a lil’ better with some AH-mazing fashion finds! Yahtzeeee!
If ya didn’t know, STRAW BAGS are a huge trend this year. Like, maybe one of the biggest. If you don’t have a beauty of your own, it’s time! They literally come in all shapes and sizes so no matter your personal style, there’s an option for you.
The two pictured above are my beauties. The larger half moon shaped bag is a DUPE of the V popular Cult Gaia option. My look-for-less gem is a fraction of the price at only $38!! Click here to shop! The handbag pictured in front, with the cute lil’ pink poms, is a beauty I just purchased for my summer Europe trip. It is THE perfect size, closes nicely with a drawstring and has a crossbody strap – perfect for travel! She’s a little bit more expensive but totally worth it. Shop her here!

Hey, babes!! I’m SO excited to start to share recipes. Y’all ask me about what I eat on the regular so I thought I’d start to incorporate my healthy meals on the blog. This recipe is one of my HEALTHY favorites and a great go-to lunch and/or dinner. This recipes can easily be vegetarian (omit chicken) and/or vegan (omit chicken and feta).
Ok, now some REAL talk!! My philosophy on eating is simple, EAT REAL FOOD. As a teenager and young adult, I struggled with my weight and my relationship with food was NOT good. I counted every calorie and had a food journal that I filled out EVERY SINGLE DAY. Needless to say, it controlled me. I loved to cook and eat, but I began to realize I wasn’t enjoying it, and even more, I was not feeding my body what it really needed. It’s not quantity of food it’s QUALITY! I tried numerous diets, was vegan for a year, was pescatarian for 7 years, was paleo for the past two years and finally today, I have found a good healthy balance. I’m not one to tell ya’ll what to do, but I’ve found a way to eat that works well for my bod! No counting calories, no obsessing… just eating healthy foods that are delicious and yummy!
Essentially I eat vegetables, fruits and “clean meats” – i.e. organic chicken/turkey, fish, grass-feed beef. 90% of the time I stay away from sugar, diary and grains. BUT you know life is all about balance. If I want a cookie, I’m going to have the damn thing! I’ve learned that allowing myself sweets and/or bread here and then, helps keep me on-track in the long run…
Happy SHOESDAY Tuesday, y’all! Let’s talk about ESPADRILLES! They are my fave cute and comfy shoe for spring and summer. Pair them with jeans, cutoff shorts, overalls or a sun dress. These beauties are SO versatile!
I purchased my Chanel beauties 3+ years ago and they have legit, been all over the world with me. They have walked the streets of Paris, London, Positano, Sydney and Melbourne to name a few 😉 These beauties are V splurge-worthy in my book BUT if you don’t want to spend the moolah, I get it!
One of my fave look-a-like options is the black and cream canvas version from Sam Edelman – similar to the Chanel pair pictured with my “You’re Like Really Pretty” mat. They are at great price at only $79! Another great leather look-a-like option is from Micheal Kors and are $85. YAS please! That’s a whole lot better than $650+! Below I’ve rounded up ALL of my favorite Chanel-inspired beauties to get this look-for-LESS…

Hey babes! On Wednesdays, we wear PINK… and let’s be honest, pretty much any other day too 😉
If y’all aren’t aware… I have a thing for pink! 😉 Needless to say I’m loving the bold color suit trend this season and especially the pretty PINK beauties. I have bought two in the past few months and I’ve already worn them multiple times. They’re classic, flattering, comfortable AND fun! I linked both my hot pink and blush beauties above.
Last month I posted about my love of SETS, but today it’s all about my favorite SUIT SETS. If you missed my previous blog post, click here…
