I've been feeling a little "over it". I've been deliberately avoiding social media.
I'm not really sure why but the desire for being a "blogger" or a "social media influencer" has kinda died down for me. Perhaps it's because I've been on non-stop "go" mode for a while now and the inspiration has been lacking. I'm ready for a break.

Summer is coming to a close but since I live in Southern California, I can get away with wearing my favorite sandals a little longer. I have been loving the caged sandal trend - are you guys on board with it? If not, here's an affordable pair from Payless. I really love the nude color and the easy to slip on sling-back style. I think these heels are so sexy and are guaranteed to turn heads. They are super comfortable. I could wear them all day long! If you love neutrals, you'll love the black pair too!
BTW, this is my current favorite white dress. I think it's perfect for transitioning into fall - I can totally see myself wearing them with a scarf, beret and booties when the weather gets colder. Also comes in 2 other print colors.

The Perfect Fall Flats with Payless

One thing I absolutely love doing for my blog is finding new locations to shoot at. My dress and these flats gave me pocahontas vibes so of course I scouted a woodsy area. These flats are so comfortable to wear and were perfect to walk around. I really like the soft soles and lace up details. Flats that go well with dresses and jeans are my favorites. These flats also come in black which I am seriously considering buying! Right now they're on sale for $24.99, originally $34.99! #paylessforstyle Now is the time to take advantage! I predict i'll be wearing these a lot come fall.

Summer Lovin'

Summer is finally here, and I'm ready to soak up all of the sun!

One thing we love doing during the summer is a staycation. As much as we love to travel, we find ourselves needing a vacation after our vacation. Traveling is exhausting, especially with a toddler. Sometimes it's nice to avoid the security lines at the airport and discover little gems in your own neighborhood. This is why my husband and I treat ourselves to 2 nights at a local hotel. It's really nice to sit back and have someone else make the beds, cook and wash the dishes!  Plus, we don't have to feel guilty about spending a ton of money.  It's a guilt-free vacation!

We love taking advantage of all of the wonderful amenities that cater to all of our needs.  My husband loves the rec room and gym, while I love lounging at the spa. Of course the three of us will come back together at our favorite spot:  the pool!

"I'll race you, mommy!!!"

As I mentioned above, one of my favorite things about staycations is discovering new places in my own neighborhood, and I'm always amazed at all of the wonderful and beautiful hotels in our area. It's a great opportunity to become a tourist. My husband and I have found several favorite restaurants and date spots through staycations.

Of course, the one thing I always pack with me on any staycation are my guilt-free thinkThin® Protein & Fiber bars. They're not only super yummy, but also loaded with nutrition.  They're a great snack to have in your bag when you're out discovering new places and playing tourists.  My favorite so far is the Chocolate Almond Brownie. With only 150 calories, it tastes good and keeps me satisfied!

So tell me what your plans are this summer and if you're doing any staycations. Can't wait to read your thoughts!


Protein helps fuel a full, energetic life. And good nutrition should always be delicious. That's why thinkThin® products are packed with protein and come in a variety of decadent flavors.

One of the biggest fall trend I'm most excited about is the bomber jacket.. It was in every major designers runway collection and now it's hitting all of the mainstream retailers! I'll be honest and say that I've never been into bomber jackets because they look unfeminine but when you give me a varsity style and make it metallic, I'm on board!
