Although there is currently a little June Gloom here in LA, the temperatures are in triple digits (well this past week at least) so that means it is time to hit the pool! Whether you like one pieces, bikinis or anything in between, I rounded up various styles at great price points from your favorite retailers that are sure to have you enjoying some fun in the sun. From swimwear to coverups to cute towels, accessories, sandals + more, I am rounding up everything you need to relax by the pool, head to the beach + everywhere else!
Guys I am SO SO excited to share my newest clothing brand obsession with y’all…BUDDY LOVE! You guys know I LOVE bright bold colors, prints + accents and anything with a girly feel so when I discovered Buddy Love I instantly fell in love! From chic dresses to flirty tops to great swim pieces, Buddy Love has all of the fun pieces you’ll want to wear all summer long + the best part? They fit great, are amazing quality + are at an affordable price point.
I first discovered Buddy Love via Red Dress Boutique since I am always adding new pieces to my wardrobe from their new arrivals section + when I spotted these fun prints + neon hues I knew this brand would be a new go-to for me!
One of my current Buddy Love favorites is this cobalt reptile print dress. When I slipped it on not only did I feel sassy, fierce + sexy, but I also feel like Paris Hilton + crew would have so rocked this outfit in the early 2000’s + any little bit of nostalgia I can feel when it comes to fashion, I am all about it!
Before I begin sharing my current Buddy Love obsessions, I want to share how I styled this dress with these classic white pumps + vintage Prada bag. I got this bag when I was in middle school + now it’s making a come back. Don’t you love that?! When things come back in style after being forgotten for so long? Such an exciting feeling + a lesson to never let go of pieces that may make a comeback one day!
Now to round up some of my current Buddy Love favorites…these picks are sure to have you stylin’ this summer + I can’t wait to stock up on more of these beautiful pieces hehe ♥
If you are anything like me, you have tried product after product for your hair to not only make your hair look great, but also keep your hair healthy. After years of struggling to find a shampoo and conditioner combo that is good for my hair in addition to leaving it looking flawless, I found that the haircare I was using was filled with toxins, chemicals + additives that actually were causing more harm than good. BUT that all changed when I discovered Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner available at CVS!
Nature Box combines effective beauty care with cold pressed oils and certain sustainably-sourced ingredients. Nature Box hair products are vegan, and many are created without the trending consumer ingredient topics of interest such as sulfates, silicones, parabens, and artificial colorants. Nature Box™ showed me that amazing hair care doesn’t need all those added extras, but that quality hair care is all about healthy, nature-inspired ingredients that nourish + repair your overworked hair!
I’ve been using the Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditioner for over a month now + have already begun seeing a difference. I love using it after my hair has been through a lot of styling from curling, straightening or excess product to help restore my hair back to its natural glory!
The first step, I lather up the Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Shampoo. I typically use 1-2 pumps to cover all of my hair from roots to tip. You can smell the coconut and feel like you are instantly in paradise – it is truly heavenly when you are enjoying a nice hot shower + long hair washing session. I lather the Coconut Oil Shampoo in my hair for about 3-5 minutes to really scrub all over + get that much-needed hydration to my roots and all around my hair. Heat tools, hairspray, dry shampoo, regular pollution, etc can really dry out your hair and I have found that the Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Shampoo adds that extra bit of moisture my hair craves, leaving my hair looking shiny, healthy + all around amazing.
After washing my hair, I condition with the Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Conditioner. I typically use 1 pump and use it on the bottom half of my hair to repair and hydrate dry ends. The bottom of your hair tends to be the most in need of saturation and hydration since your roots get all of the attention most of the time. So, I always like to treat the bottom half of my hair to a little extra love. I let the conditioner soak for about 3-5 minutes while I wash the rest of my body and then I rinse the conditioner out and comb through my hair with a brush to alleviate knots and tangles.
What’s amazing about Nature Box™ 100% Cold Pressed Coconut Oil Shampoo and Conditioner is that it leaves your hair smelling amazing + hydrated! So, I love to let my hair air dry after in order to give my hair the much-needed break it deserves!
Ready to switch up your hair care routine with Nature Box™? Shop it at your local CVS + see why natural is the way to go!
Happy Sunday Funday ya’ll! I hope you all are up to some fun adventures!
Friday I had the opportunity to head to one of the happiest places on earth, Disneyland! From checking out some new rides, to enjoying some yummy dishes to viewing some amazing performances, Disneyland never disappoints + this summer, they have so many fun activities for you to check out + enjoy all season long!
If you are anything like me, you are a Disney lover + are always searching for the inside scoop on what to check out when you are at the park to maximize your trip, so today I am sharing some fun new happenings at both Disneyland + California Adventure specially for summer.
While everyone is talking about Galaxy’s Edge (and trust me it is AMAZING) I want to share just how much there is to do at Disneyland that the whole family will love! First up…a fun new theatrical performance at California Adventure, ‘Tale of the Lion King’ at the Palisades Stage!
The show is an all-new musical showcase inspired by everyone’s favorite Disney movie, The Lion King! Highly energetic performers depict an imaginative story that celebrates the spirit of Africa + the amazing movie highlighting our favorite characters Simba, Scar, Mufasa + more!
Next up?! California Adventure brought back a fan favorite ride, ‘Soarin’ Over California‘ in Grizzly Peak! From June 1st – June 30th, you can hop on this fun ride that brings you Soarin’ over iconic California landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Malibu + more. Let me tell ya, this ride is a BLAST + being a Californian it is so fun to explore my surroundings in this fun, unique way.
I live for a yummy lunch break + one of our go-to spots is the Lamplight Lounge at Pixar Pier that has delicious new brunch dishes like avocado toast, french toast, potato flautas, yummy cocktails + more.
My personal favorite is their adult french toast, it is beyond scrumptious + is super filling for a long day at the park. Cocktail wise you can’t go wrong with their Cinnamon Toast Cocktail…it’s as if your favorite bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch was put into a bottle + it included a hint of vodka…SO GOOD!
I LOVE Toy Story + all things Pixar so that means you 100% need to play Midway Mania (a fun interactive shooting game at Pixar Pier that is a replica of Andy’s room from Toy Story), along with the Incredicoaster where you go on a wild rollercoaster ride to chase down JackJack (my fav)!
There’s also a new Toy Story themed ride at Pixar Pier for kiddos, Jessie’s Critter Carousel so you should definitely check that out if you have young ones!
I also love Cars Landso had to stop by to hang out with Mater + the gang because why not?!
Now off to Disneyland Park…where they refurbished the gorgeous Sleeping Beauty Castle making it as gorgeous as ever to have your magical photo moment!
The castle is just so iconic + it’s even more gorgeous at night during the newly returned, ‘Disneyland Forever‘ fireworks spectacular that takes place every night at 9:30pm.
I love Disneyland so much, I feel like there is magic behind every corner + because of Galaxy’s Edge opening, a lot of my old time favorite attractions have shorter lines or have been updated to pair with the Star Wars theme!
Anytime I head to Disneyland, I always go on the Haunted Mansion ride, It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean + Splash Mountain (you can’t go wrong with any of these)!
BUT one of my fav rides is over in Tomorrowland, Space Mountain which has been renamed Hyperspace Mountain + rethemed to highlight StarWars. You get to hurtle through Hyperspace while dodging furious dogfights during the high-speed adventure!
One of my favorite parts about heading to Disney is meeting all of my favorite characters like Winnie The Pooh, Tiger + more. What I love about Disney is that no matter what age you are, you can always be a kid + have a magical time at Disneyland.
Are you heading to Disneyland this summer?!
I am always happy to provide some fun tips + advice on where to go, what to see + what to do!
