Ladies, I can’t contain my excitement right now…. First of all, we have an amazing gift guide for all the boys out there and Swell is having an AMAZING sale right now….. 25% off SITEWIDE!!


See y’all later…

JK, I’m back. Ok, down to business! If you don’t know already, Swell is everything California lifestyle and more.  They have the best beachwear, which also transitions into nighttime flawlessly (Stone Cold Fox, For Love and Lemons, One Teaspoon, and the list goes on..) #ICANTICANTICANTICANT

So basically, if you’re shopping for him on Swell, it’s all about the rule of one for you, one (or two) for me! :) (I live by this rule).


Enter code: INSTA25 for 25% your ENTIRE order. Shipping is always free $18+. Bombtastic.

1. Date Night- Can we all agree that dressing boys up is just good old fashioned fun? Especially if you have a cute boy and he looks good in everything. If you’re looking for a little date night look for your hunny try this! It’s a little bit casual, little bit city, and a little bit hipster. Perfect for tapas!

2. Wave Rider- If he’s a beachy kind of dude, get him something he’ll use! A brand new wetsuit, this bad@$$ wet/dry backpack by Dakine and some Piss Off (hehehehahah) might just do the trick!

3. The Rugged Manly Man- Not to get all lumberjack cray on you all of the sudden but can we have a little shout out for all the manly men who love the outdoors? How could you not adore this classic flannel paired with a little camo (hello mixed patterns!!) Love!

Happy Shopping! :) Let me know what you pick up!

Merry Christmas Eve babies!!

(This hot little New York is everything)

It’s a little foggy in my corner of the world, but looking forward to a beautiful Christmas Eve! Remember my goal to not gain a pound this entire month?? Well, we are right on track! I haven’t gained a thing as of this morning, although I have been indulging here and there… Chocolate, cookies, the whole thing.. Like many others, when the little angel on my shoulder says, “don’t eat that third piece of fudge,” the devil on my shoulder says, “What?? Do it, it’s Christmas, tis the season beotch!!” I don’t always give in to the “tis the season” sentiments because I am well aware that the season doesn’t need to equal completely erasing the work you do the rest of the year.. but, today is Christmas Eve and tomorrow is Christmas, so to that I say- tis the season. Get it out of your system and then Wednesday get back on that treadmill you hot thing, you. :)

(Gingerbread, mmmm)

Yesterday was a perfect Sunday. Got up early, ate a good brek, cleaned, worked out (tons of toning work and mix of cardio), and headed to see the fam. The rest of the day was spent baking cookies, fudge, and gingerbread. Yum! I had a great time listening to Christmas music, sitting by the fire, trading stories and putting the final touches on our Christmas preparation. This Christmas Eve will likely be a quiet one. Church and dinner, maybe some Christmas lights and to bed to awake for Christmas morning. I’m always interested to hear about how families do their Christmas’… Presents on Christmas Eve? Christmas Day split between houses? Certain foods always made? I love to hear. Send me your Christmas stories, I’d love to trade some. :)

(Sugar cookies :))

I hope you all have a lovely and blessed Christmas. I am very thankful for the people in my life, the job that I have, good health, and everything in between. It’s getting better all the time.
