They are high-waisted, distressed, boyfriend jeans and all you need to do in order to win a pair of your own is to:

1. be following this blog with Google+ or Bloglovin'

subtle metallic


Frontrowshop continues to impress me with thier elegant, yet strickignly unique pieces. I recently recieved this gorgeous blouse from them, and was very eager to pair it with a pleather skirt and chunky sandals; however, this blouse is multi-faceded as it can help create more than one type of look...at least in my opinion. My first reaction to this top was to dress it up, however, after trying it on, it became clear that it would work well in a more casual setting as well. The blouse itself is oversized, and would go well with pants or even leggings. It is a subtle top, even with the metallic polka-dots, the blouse remains soft and chic, which I love. Click HERE to check out the rest of thier online shop, whether its casual or classy you are looking for, they definitely carry it!

Precious Moments (June edition)








It's been about two months since we've moved, and we are still in the process of settling in. We're hoping to be completely settled by the end of summer; however we still have adventures in the meantime. You may have noticed I've been posting less often, which is partially due to the fact that we are constantly rushing around in attempt to be "settled". Meaning, looking for a suitable full-time job, catching up on bills, etc, whilst trying to keep our moods light and find ways to enjoy ourselves in this beautiful city. 
It's been a bit difficult to "stop and smell the flowers" or so to speak, but I try hard every day to make it a priority. If I'm not enjoying myself, then what am I doing here? I think this is something many of us struggle with. We become so consumed in achieving the lifestyle we want, we forget to take a step back, see what we've achieved so far and celebrate it! I am often stressed, always looking to the future, but Gavin helps ground me, we take at least one day a week to go/experience something new, or sometimes something comforting and familiar (like seeing a movie). These posts have been helpful too. When I feel too overwhelmed, I gather some of my favorite photos from the past month or so, and I am reminded by the great times I had in these photos. It helps me breath and realize I am where I'm supposed to be, and I'm going where I need to...I just need to be patient.
Anywho, that's enough of a personal rant, I hope you are all enjoying yourselves and taking the time to enjoy the little (and BIG) things ^.^

cheap shades and a tattoo and a yoohoo


My third YESFOR review is finally here. It has been so unbelievably busy, I could not even find a beach to wear this properly yet. However, it has still been super useful to lay out under the sun in the back yard ;) I love this bathing suit for many reasons. 1- the bottoms can either be worn normally (at the hips) or can easily be worn as I have them above, which is to say high-waisted. 2- the top is flattering AND comfortable, which is a hard duo to find. It is definitely my new favorite bathing suit ^.^


Hope you all have a great week!

not very pretty but we sure know how to run free


Are you someone who likes to feel good? Are you in need of a fast, easy way to feel good on bad days? Well I have just the thing for you... A TULLE SKIRT, or a tutu, whatever you fancy. I've recently recieved this one from YESFOR and am in love. It's lovely, and though layered, still airy and light enough for summer; not to mention you could pair just about anything with it. Dress it up with a silk top and heels, or down, with a t-shirt and a hat, like I did. There are many different shades to choose from as well; I strongly recomend you check out the shop and these skirts (for an unbelievably low price, may I add?) I want to adventure into some gardens in this. hopefully soon, when work isn't so busy.
Anywho, it's the weekend, hope you are all enjoying yourselves x
