Hey Everyone!
Today I'm so excited to talk about a beautiful collaboration between Papyrus and Lela Rose. I'm sure you've all heard of Papyrus and their gorgeous high-quality greeting cards for all occasions but did you know that they're also involved with NYFW? It's true! Papyrus has been a part of Fashion Week for the last 9 years and this year they decided to partner with top fashion designer, Lela Rose. I'm so happy to share with you a few of the cards she designed as well as gift tags & bags!

How amazing are these cards? I have always been a huge fan of Lela Rose and her pretty and feminine designs. They're right up my alley and I am swooning over these dresses! You can be sure that these cards are excellent quality. Papyrus's collection is definitely at premium level where everything is like a piece of artwork. I can't wait to send these fashionable cards out to my fashionable girlfriends!

Happy Friday everyone!
The weekend is finally here and I'm setting a few goals for myself!

1. I will go grocery shopping - The last few days we've been eating out and the majority has been unhealthy choices because I haven't had time to go to the market but this weekend, I will FORCE MYSELF TO GO!

2. I will clean out Rylie's closet.. Homegirl has so many clothes and not enough hangers! Plus she's growing daily so it's time to empty out the clothes that are too small and re-organize!

3. I will ship out the mail that's been sitting on my bedroom floor this entire week!

This is such a small list but each one requires me to stop being a lazy bum which is kinda hard haha. I hope you all have a great weekend and I'll see you back here next week!

Getting Comfy with Payless x KangaROOS

One of our favorite things to do as a family is rides our bikes in our neighborhood after dinner. The sun is just starting to go down so it's not as hot and there aren't a lot of cars on the streets. It's the perfect time to get comfortable in yoga clothes and plush tennis shoes which is why I'm excited to talk about these KangaROOS from Payless. First of all I love the hot pink color and second, I love the toddler version for Rylie. Everything about this shoe screams comfort. The insides are all padded so it feels like your walking on plush, fluffy cotton. They come in 3 other colors and are currently priced at $34.99. Rylie's shoes are currently $24.99 and I love that they are velcro.
These shoes are definitely worth trying if you're in the market for comfortable sneakers. Check our your local Payless or visit them online.

What's In My Shopping Cart

A few new additions to my fall wardrobe.
Untitled-1



For all of the clothing items above I feel they all fit TTS except the grey wrap sweater. I would definitely size down. Unless you like a loose look, the material will stretch overtime.

This diffuser is a must! Our hotel in Waikiki had this all over the lobby and floors and it smelled so lovely. Of course I stalked down the brand and tracked it down when we returned home.

How cute is this checkered bag with the thick cross body strap? Thick guitar straps trend is everywhere so make sure you grab one!

I am SUPER picky when it comes to pants and I swear these tapered pants literally feel like sweats!

For years, I have been going back and forth on whether to take the big $ plunge and purchase the chanel ballet flats... I always back down because when I look at how quickly all my other designer shoes damage I feel like it's not worth it. Instead I opted for these budget friendly (compared to the chanels) look-a-likes. I'm happy I did because they're comfortable and I won't have to feel guilty about ruining them!

Travel Guide: Oahu, Hawaii

It's been about 2 weeks since my vacation to Oahu and already I'm dying to go back! If you didn't know, Oahu is my FAVORITE place to vacation. This was my third time back on the Island and I was really excited to take first timers, Rylie and my mom. I'm going to do a separate post on where we ate, today I just wanted to share a photo diary of our time on the Island.

Drove up to Ko'olina Lagoon (#4) for Rylie.
This is a man-made lagoon so the water is very calm and shallow. Perfect for kids.

This was a much needed vacation for all of us. Summer was so busy and I was ready to getaway and mentally check out. I may be struggling a little to check back in =)
I apologize for the lack of blog posts and social media presence lately. I made a conscious decision to be 'present' with my family instead of constantly checking my phone. It's liberating not being so attached to my phone but the drawback is I'm not always up to date on everyone's instagram and snapchat. I guess i'm still trying to find a healthy balance that works for myself and my family. Any suggestions would be welcomed!
