     Santa Barbara, you are B E A U T I F U L ♥ I am at a loss for words because I think I just found the city of my dreams this past weekend…Santa Barbara! With beaches + lovely harbors walking distances from some of the nicest bars + restaurants, it quickly became one of my favorite places I have visited since moving to LA. While I am always heading out to Palm Springs for some desert fun, this past weekend I decided to switch things up by heading to Santa Barbara for some beachside fun in the sun! My boyfriend + I both had never been to this great city but found a chic + quant little hotel with some serious charm on State Street (the main street hub of downtown Santa Barbara) called Hotel Santa Barbara.

    I have been wanting to go to Santa Barbara for sometime now + this weekend before the Memorial Day rush was the perfect time! Being from Long Island, nothing makes this newfound LA gal happier than putting my feet in the sand + smelling that fresh ocean breeze…luckily with Hotel Santa Barbara being just half a mile from the beach, that was exactly what I did all weekend long. From discovering the two harbors ventured to by the locals which each had their own little attractions like a Maritime Museum or a Sea Center Aquarium to adorable little gift stops + ice cream shops, I was in complete bliss. It was such a nice change of pace from the hustle + bustle of LA and it honestly reminded me of home. The fact you can walk down a boardwalk without it being overly crowded by tourists like in Santa Monica, to being able to bar hop on State Street to taking part in local festivities (when Mike and I arrived at Hotel Santa Barbara, there was a car show happening out front) to live music just about everywhere, there was never a shortage of things to do + places to experience!missyonmadison, melissa tierney, missyonmadison instagram, fashion blogger, travel blogger, santa barbara, hotel santa barbara, hotel review, hotels in santa barbara, santa barbara beaches, gucci crossbody bag, platform wedges, tan platform wedges, chloe wedges, weekend getaway, travel style, vera bradley luggage, vera bradley duffle bag, vera bradley weekender bag, peach halter dress, pink halter dress, la blogger, road trip, what to do in santa barbara,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, missyonmadison instagram, fashion blogger, travel blogger, santa barbara, hotel santa barbara, hotel review, hotels in santa barbara, santa barbara beaches, gucci crossbody bag, platform wedges, tan platform wedges, chloe wedges, weekend getaway, travel style, vera bradley luggage, vera bradley duffle bag, vera bradley weekender bag, peach halter dress, pink halter dress, la blogger, road trip, what to do in santa barbara,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, missyonmadison instagram, fashion blogger, travel blogger, santa barbara, hotel santa barbara, hotel review, hotels in santa barbara, santa barbara beaches, gucci crossbody bag, platform wedges, tan platform wedges, chloe wedges, weekend getaway, travel style, vera bradley luggage, vera bradley duffle bag, vera bradley weekender bag, peach halter dress, pink halter dress, la blogger, road trip, what to do in santa barbara,missyonmadison, melissa tierney, missyonmadison instagram, fashion blogger, travel blogger, santa barbara, hotel santa barbara, hotel review, hotels in santa barbara, santa barbara beaches, gucci crossbody bag, platform wedges, tan platform wedges, chloe wedges, weekend getaway, travel style, vera bradley luggage, vera bradley duffle bag, vera bradley weekender bag, peach halter dress, pink halter dress, la blogger, road trip, what to do in santa barbara,

    What I loved most about Santa Barbara was most certainly our hotel. I don’t know about you, but I am definitely picky when it comes to where I stay when traveling. Having a icky hotel can put a damper on the experience + ruin your trip. Luckily that was far from the case here!! I instantly fell in love with Hotel Santa Barbara from the moment we stepped into the old fashioned elevator taking us to our floor. It reminded me of the Tower Of Terror at Disney (in a good way haha…I LOVED that ride to be honest…) and this elevator was reminiscent of that in the most charming of ways.

    The room itself was clean, cozy + photo friendly (meaning it had the perfect amount of light making it insta worthy all the way haha :p).

    Whether you want to lounge for a bit in a comfy robe like I did or start a pillow fight (which I also did), the bed is beyond comfortable + the room is amazing quality + truly feels like a home away from home!

     Happy Thursday! Sorry for the delay in posting loves…I’ve been a bit swamped with work but finally I am getting some much needed R+R because I am off to Palm Springs and Santa Barbara for the weekend!! I rarely ever take vacation time since I am always go, go, go but lately I have been in need of a little refresh, recharge + time to feel inspired again. I’ve been in a funk where I lost my passion for what it was I was doing. Instagram felt like a chore, photoshoots felt tedious + all I wanted to do was crawl into bed and stay there. It’s crazy how your mood can change instantly based on people around you, situations you are in etc. I think the first step in getting back on track to doing what I love is realizing what I am missing + finding it…luckily I just needed some colorful scenery, a cup of ice cream + pretty photos to get me feeling inspired to post again and what better place to get fun, colorful content than at the Museum Of Ice Cream that is currently open in DTLA!

    I have been dying to explore the Museum Of Ice Cream ever since I saw it open in NYC last year…so when I heard it was coming to LA, it was obvious I must go! Luckily the fab watch brand Daniel Wellington has a fondness for great insta pics + sweet treats and invited me to explore the museum with them last weekend! Now that is something that gets me up bright + early…even on a Sunday 😉

    I have been a fan of Daniel Wellington’s watches for a while since they are lightweight, simple + always chic! You can see how I styled one before HERE.

    In addition to sporting a Daniel Wellington watch for the day, I wore a pastel off the shoulder top from Charming Charlie paired with a black scuba skirt, nude chunky heels + my go-to bag of the season, my GiGi New York crossbody.

    My outfit matched the colorful setting of the museum perfectly. Each room was designed to center around a different flavor or element of ice cream. From the gummy bear room, to the mint chip room to the banana split room, this museum was one sweet journey that I highly encourage everyone to check out!

    Staying Hydrated for Spring with smartwater from Target…

    Spring is B L O O M I N G, the weather is warming up + that means I am even more on the go than usual. Whether it is heading to the office, walking around my neighborhood or running around on the weekends, one this is for sure…I always need to stay hydrated in order to kick butt throughout the day! I don’t know about you but anytime I feel parched or thirsty, I instantly can’t focus and need a little boost…that’s why I am starting to find it more and more important to make sure I stay hydrated throughout the day so I can experience #InspiredHydration ♥

    Luckily smartwater® has been my go-to for staying hydrated and inspired for years now. Whether I am about to hike Runyon, head out for an outfit shoot or just go from meeting to meeting, I always keep a bottle of smartwater with me!

    I LOVE smartwater and even more so I love a good deal! With spring in full swing, Target tends to offer the best promos on all of the essentials I stock up + save on – case and point, the smartwater 0.5L 6 pack which is great for a gal on the go like myself was on sale when I shopped it over the weekend at my local Target.

    The smartwater bottles are the perfect size to keep in your fridge, bag, car + beyond (you’d be surprised to see where I find water bottles hiding when I least expect it haha).

    missyonmadison, melissa tierney, smartwater, spring style, hydration, how to stay hydrated, spring fitness, spring wellness, how to stay healthy this spring, target, smartwater at target, la blogger, fashion blogger, lifestyle blogger, flatlay, what's in my bag,

    While I am an avid smartwater drinker, the number one time I always drink multiple bottles at a time is when I am off doing outfit shoots. Let me tell ya, standing out in the heat and waking up early to get the perfect lighting for photos ain’t easy, with that, in order to keep going, going, going, I need to drink TONS of water to function haha…specifically smartwater since it is filled with plenty of electrolytes that you can totally taste + it is just such a crisp + refreshing choice that you feel good about inside and out!

    Since I have an outfit shoot coming up tomorrow, I decided to stock up, save + experience #InspiredHydration!

    First, I headed over to Target, going straight to the water aisle and voila I scored the smartwater promo on the 0.5L 6 pack of bottles.

    missyonmadison, melissa tierney, smartwater, spring style, hydration, how to stay hydrated, spring fitness, spring wellness, how to stay healthy this spring, target, smartwater at target, la blogger, fashion blogger, lifestyle blogger, flatlay, what's in my bag,

     After, I score my smartwater on sale at Target I head back home and typically begin planning what else I need to bring with my for a busy day of shooting. An extra phone charger, my planner + some perfume are always in my bag to accompany my smartwater!

    Finally, when I am out and about in LA taking pictures in front of colorful walls or heading to the perfect scene to snap a pic, I keep drinking smartwater so I don’t become dehydrated with the hot LA weather (it’s already been feeling like heat waves out here to be honest :p)

    Staying hydrated with vapor distilled, pure smartwater is crucial for surviving the spring into summer season!

    smartwater has the purity you can taste + the hydration you can feel so you can be inspired all spring long + go up, up, up!

    Uncommon Goods Microwave Popcorn Popper

     Happy Monday! A lot of gift giving holidays are quickly approaching…Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation etc. Where is one to find fun, unique + personalized gifts that will be perfect for everyone in your life? Easy…Uncommon Goods!! To kick the season off, I decided to ‘treat’ myself to a little something, something in the form of my newest obsession…a Microwave Popcorn Popper!! ICYMI, I am a a huge fan of popcorn! It is basically one of my core food groups haha :p So when I saw that I can make popcorn in the microwave in an easy device that I can add my own butter + seasoning to I knew I had to have it.

    This little baby is under $20 and is AMAZING! It is pretty much the ability to air pop popcorn without a popcorn maker (can life get any better? seriously?!)

    This popper is made of glass with silicon and rubber pieces making it dishwasher safe and easy to put in the microwave without overheating.

    All you need to get your movie night started is popcorn kernels, butter (if you want it movie theater style…I always do haha) + salt (I add sea salt usually after the popcorn is already popped).

    The silicone topper doubles as a measuring cup for how many kernels you should put inside the popper.

    If you want to add butter simply take a scoop or two and put it inside the silicone lid for it to slowly melt during the popping process in the microwave. missyonmadison, missy on madison instagram, melissa tierney, melissa tierney instagram, popcorn, microwave popcorn, air popper, kettle popcorn, homemade popcorn, uncommon goods, mothers day gifts, gift guide, fun gift ideas, great gift ideas, affordable mothers day gifts, home decor goals, home decor shopping, online shopping, lifestyle blogger, fashion blogger, staycation, move night, netflix and chill,missyonmadison, missy on madison instagram, melissa tierney, melissa tierney instagram, popcorn, microwave popcorn, air popper, kettle popcorn, homemade popcorn, uncommon goods, mothers day gifts, gift guide, fun gift ideas, great gift ideas, affordable mothers day gifts, home decor goals, home decor shopping, online shopping, lifestyle blogger, fashion blogger, staycation, move night, netflix and chill,missyonmadison, missy on madison instagram, melissa tierney, melissa tierney instagram, popcorn, microwave popcorn, air popper, kettle popcorn, homemade popcorn, uncommon goods, mothers day gifts, gift guide, fun gift ideas, great gift ideas, affordable mothers day gifts, home decor goals, home decor shopping, online shopping, lifestyle blogger, fashion blogger, staycation, move night, netflix and chill,

    YOU Time – The Complete Guide to a Rainy Day In…

    missyonmadison, it cosmetics, coffee, morning coffee, rainy day in, breakfast in bed, rainy day in bed, coffee mug, gold butler tray, melissa tierney, missyonmadison instagram, la blogger, bloglovin,

    The weather can be an inconvenient factor in planning a fun day with your family or pals. You could arrange the cutest picnic in the park, with finger sandwiches, chocolate brownies and ball games, yet the whole plan is ruined by the atmosphere’s wicked wet ways. 

    Me? I LOVE the rain. I love the smell of my garden as it falls on the grass, I love the sound of it dropping onto my skylight window, and I love feeling of it rolling down my skin. Most of all, however, I love how it allows me to stay in my lovely sheltered home, free of guilt, and able to do all my favorite activities…

    missyonmadison, missyonmadison instagram, melissa tierney, popcorn, uncommon goods, movie night, netflix night, popcorn maker, la blogger,

    1. Netflix Binge

    Oh, Netflix. However tremendously unoriginal, this platform is one of the most genius inventions of this generation. Not to mention, it somehow lead to the infamous, virally spread and rather suggestive concept of “Netflix and Chill.”

    Constant online streaming permits access to some of the best TV shows there are: Stranger Things, Peep Show, How I Met Your Mother, Gilmore Girls, Gossip Girl… need I go on? Whether you are spending your rainy day in alone, with your love, or with your pals, there is bound to be something you can enjoy! 

    missyonmadison, missyonmadison instagram, melissa tierney, popcorn, uncommon goods, movie night, netflix night, popcorn maker, la blogger,

    Online Gaming

    I am an absolute sucker for online gaming. Whether it’s a simple game of Tetris, a couple of rounds on a virtual slot machine, or solid few games of online bingo, I really enjoy devoting a good hour or two to some gaming when the miserable weather calls for it.

    For me, the best sites are those that have a lot of variety, in the nature and theme of the games. I often use mFortune for my rainy day session, as I love their pun-derful, bee-themed slot game, Double Your Honey. This site is particularly recommendable for its transparency of costs too. DYH states a cost of a minimum of 2p per spin, but they do in fact offer free bingo games, with no deposit necessary. Online slots have come a long way in terms of updating what we used to find in real-life casinos, and they’re worth exploring if you haven’t had a chance to.

    Pinterest Board Making

    Pinterest is modern technology’s answer for mood board making – or as they phrase it themselves, “the world’s catalogue of ideas”. It is a great way to find inspiration or develop, and conceptualize innovative ideas. You simply create and name a board, then pin items to it, through either browsing within the site, or – should you have the “Pin it” plug in installed – wherever else on the internet.

    Maybe you’re thinking of redecorating the kitchen, but not sure of the right theme to go with, or you need help deciding on a birthday gift for your partner, I can guarantee you will find all your answers using Pinterest!

    Pampering

    One thing I absolutely love to set aside a good length of time for, every so often, is a bath. I’ll ensure there are plenty of bubbles, candles, and calming music, then really scrub, buffer and polish my skin. Next, I will coat my body in coconut oil, proven to do wonders for the skin and hair.  If I’m feeling really in the need, I may even finish off with a DIY manicure!

    Either way, a bit of pamper time is the perfect way to spend a rainy day in. This, combined with a film, a few games of bingo, and some inspiration hunting, is what I would consider a simply fabulous day!

    What I really enjoy about ThirdLove is their interactive website that has you take a ‘Fit Finder’ quiz helping you find your perfect fit, bra style + more. When I took the quiz, it recommended 3 different styles for me:

    Lace Balconette Bra | Perfect Contour Plunge | Front Closure Lace Racerback

    The Lace Balconette Bra (which I am wearing in these shots) is a mix of sexy + secure…meaning it keeps me feeling comfortable all day long while also feminine and girly because of the intricate lace detailing (I am a serious sucker for lace :p).

    The Perfect Contour Plunge is great for those v neck tees you need a comfortable go-to bra for. This bra is in my opinion flattering for every body type because it fits like a glove and eliminates cup gaping to provide a seamless look + natural fit.

    I love the Front Closure Lace Racerback bra. It has lace detailing in the back that makes it perfect for those loose tanks or tees that show a little of your back…who wouldn’t want to show off these pretty little details? This bra also has a front closure for easy wear + an adjustable back strap band for the perfect fit all around.

    ThirdLove’s bras are great for women of all shapes + sizes. They have all cup sizes from A to G and the styles range from push ups to natural fits + beyond.

    Their bras are also great quality at an affordable price that will last you for years. Bras are the foundation of every look + every outfit, you don’t want to skimp out on quality with your base coat 😉 Hey it’s true…an outfit isn’t an outfit without the proper under garments right? 😉
