Just a fun little Friday remix for you! I have quite a little collection of beaded skirts and love mixing them up by not only wearing them at night, but during the day too. With the right styling, you won’t feel like you are super dressy, which is key. For this remix, I kept the bones of each outfit very similar, i.e. black, shoes, same sunglasses, similar jewelry etc, as well as the color palette, which makes creating outfits much easier, especially if you are new to remixing.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to join the Olympus team down in New Orleans to test out their new TG-3 and the E-M10 cameras. Over the course of a couple days, we stayed at The W Hotel in the French Quarter, had dinner at some great old school places, such as the Bourbon House and Arnaud’s, took a ghost tour, and visited a plantation as well as a swamp, where we fed alligators marshmallows! You can see some of my photos from my time in the city here, but below are some of my favorites that I took during the second part of the excursion. (All photos were taken with Olympus cameras.)




These alligators blended in so well with the water. They would sneak/swim right up to the boat out of nowhere!



The guide fed them marshmallows, which they loved. ( The guide assured us that feeding them this treat is not actually bad for them – phew!)


I couldn’t stop taking pictures of the trees and Spanish moss that seemed to be everywhere. I didn’t grow up with vegetation like that so it was fascinating to me.



I spy a little turtle!


Overall it was a really great trip. It’s fair to say that I spend a lot of time down in New Orleans, but this time I was lucky enough to see Louisiana in a different light than before. I especially loved capturing different shots on the plantation and during the swamp tour since I had never really ventured outside the city limits, so I saw things with fresh eyes for sure. I also had such a fun time playing around with the different cameras and lenses, chatting with the Olympus team and meeting everyone that was a part of our group. Thanks for having me Olympus, I had a blast! xo

This past Saturday, Casey and I spent the day at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic out on Liberty State Park. It was a beautiful day (except for the 20 minutes of rain that occurred) for sitting in the sun and sipping champagne with friends.


Quite the spectacular view from the ferry.



Me and my Bow Tie Casey!

The grounds.


Everyone was dressed to the nines. It was so fun to people watch!


Grace’s awesome and very fitting iPhone case. I need this in my life.


Someone else’s aftermath.


Just a couple of saps.

Thank you so much Veuve Clicquot for having us – it was an absolute blast! xo





Sensitive Body Wash / Olay Fresh Wipes / Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream / Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Revolution Complex / Olay Regenerist Eye Lifting Serum / Olay Regenerist Lash Serum / Olay Total Effects CC Cream


For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while now, know that I have worked with Olay on various projects over the past year. I have become quite the fan of their products – everything from their face wipes and eye cream to their body wash and CC cream – so as part of my dedication to start taking better care of my skin a little better, I am now using their Sensitive Body Wash as part of my daily routine. I used it for the first time the other day and have noticed that instead of my body feeling dry like usual, it has stayed soft and moisturized, which is real plus in my book. I have struggled with dry and sensitive skin my whole life so it’s quite the relief to find a product that works this well. I figured since I was giving Olay’s new body wash a try, I would do a little roundup of my favorite Olay skin care product for you guys. I use all these products on a regular basis and have seen great results.

I now encourage you all to make a pledge of your own! What healthier choices do you want to make in your life?

All I have to say is, happy Friday! xo

This past weekend, for those of you just catching up, was spent in Charlottesville, Virginia for my good friend Rachel’s wedding, which was held at her family’s vineyard. But before the actual festivities began, my friends and I had a couple days to explore the area, and of course we went wine tasting! We only visited a couple wineries, but they were really great and the property and views were spectacular.


First up was Glass House Winery. We tried their Viognier, which was great, and sat down by the water on their dock.



After some relaxation in the sun, we ventured onto Moss Vineyards and sipped on their rosé, which was also really lovely and refreshing.


Me and Emily, goofing off.


My Saturday was spent at the City Market in downtown Charlottesville, where I indulged in a really tasty bagel, egg and cheese and enjoyed looking at the pretty produce and flowers.



I didn’t get to actually eat at The Whiskey Jar, but heard it’s great. If you’re ever in the area, check it out and let me know what you think!


Saturday night, we all headed to Ankida Ridge Vineyards (my friend’s husband’s vineyard), where we had to be taken up to the house (and later on the vineyard) by a tractor. Yes, I sat on a bale of hay in my dress, which was pretty amusing, especially because the ride was up a steep, steep hill. I had to use my oblique muscles to keep from falling sideways, ha!



Perfect comfort food.



Such an amazing weekend over all. Congratulations Rachel and Nathan!

And to you my dear readers, thanks for reading as always. It means the world to me.

Happy Tuesday! xo


This past Memorial Day weekend was pretty incredible. I hopped in the car with friends early Friday morning and drove down to Charlottesville, Virginia for my friend Rachel’s wedding, which was held at Stinson Vineyards, her family’s winery. The bride was gorgeous and glowing, the weather was amazing and I was surrounded by great friends –  it was such a perfect day.


Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Vrooman!

One of the funniest parts of the evening was when Rachel’s father began his speech and all of a sudden all the cows from across the road gathered together in a row, and began listening.
