My Beach Essentials

April is the perfect month for a vacation! With the school year coming close to an end, nothing is better than treating yourself to a vacation after a long and exhausting semester. Vacations definitely can be expensive however, there are some vacay hotspots that are cheaper than others! One of my favourite vacation spots is the state of Florida. You can get everything you need without having to venture too far away. Also there are always plenty ofย vacation home rentals in Florida in many different cities! Me and my family always take a trip to Florida once every few years. We love exploring the different parts of the states and sometimes even make a road trip out of it! One of my most memorable trips to Florida was when we stayed in Naples. Usually we stay in Orlando to visit all the theme parks but this time we decided to mix things up. It was one of our most relaxing vacations. We stayed at a beautiful hotel that was right on the beach; as soon as you exited the lobby you were right in front of the pool. If you walked a bit further you could get right on the beach and one morning, we even saw dolphins jumping through the water! It was definitely a memorable trip! However, packing for a beach vacation can be difficult and so in this post I will cover my absolute beach essentials! ๐Ÿ™‚

This market is truly amazing and really captures the essence of Christmas! In this post I’ll review my experience at the market and also share with you the details of my outfit, so stay tuned! ๐Ÿ™‚

Back to School: Part 2

So as promised, here is part 2 of my back to school look. It’s now 2 weeks into September and the weather is finally starting to feel more like fall and less like summer (bittersweet ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ). Many of you will have just finished your second week of school and now that the weather is starting to cool down, you may be looking for inspiration for your fall wardrobe, while still trying to go back to school in style. I decided to go for a different style of look from my last post, to encompass the different style types out there. For this post, I decided to go for a more casual, urban look. Check it out!

Back to School: Part 1

The nights are getting colder, the days are getting shorter and slowly the leaves are changing colors. Fall is around the corner and it means that it’s almost time to go back to school! The end of summer can always be so bittersweet, you have to hang up your bikini and trade it in for a book bag and some books. But back to school can also be exciting, you get to reunite with friends and meet new people! Even though it is sad to say goodbye to summer, fall can be amazing for many reasons. I love fall because it means you get to wear wool hats, chunky scarves and layer pieces together for the perfect outfit. The perfect cure for the back to school blues, is the perfect outfit! Over the next few posts, I will focus on the perfect outfits for back to school! Take a look! ๐Ÿ™‚
