What to Try First from Amazon Prime Wardrobe

Have you guys seen one of the newest features on Amazon yet? Their Prime Wardrobe feature is so cool! Basically, you get to try products out that you may have been eyeing before you buy them - it's like having a store's dressing room in your house, and what's better than that? ;) It's such a great and really useful idea and they always seem to be adding new products to their Prime Wardrobe closet. I couldn't believe these finds were included, here's some of the best things to try before you buy:

Currently Craving: July Favorites

Can summer slow down for a second?! Seriously, I'm enjoying this weather and the sunshine too much to worry about it going so fast! This month's Currently Craving is a bit shorter because with all of the NSALE craziness I hadn't shopped too much elsewhere. But there are some really great finds - for your home, the cutest jeans, a couple of dupes... You get the point! Here's my favorites from July:

7 Pre-Travel Hacks to Make Your Next Trip Easier

Planning a vacation is allll fun and games until it comes time to fine-tune the trip details and pack. UGH. There's seriously few things I dread more when it comes to traveling because there's so many variables, things that could change and be out of your control - unpacking may be the only thing I dislike more. ;) Here's some of my favorite, most used pre-travel "hacks" that'll help make everything roll as smoothly as possible.

Amazon Prime Day Favorites

With all of the excitement over the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale happening and all of the fun, new seasonal looks that are being styled, I thought it'd be fun to highlight some of the best summer finds that are a part of the sale! I love seeing all of the trends and getting great deals on cooler weather outfits and accessories but the same goes for things we can use right now - all summer long and even throughout the year too. Summer is my absolute favorite and I'm going to celebrate it as much and for as long as possible. ;) Here's all of the best summery buys included in the sale:

2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Favorites: What to Buy Before it Sells Out

It's that time again - today is the first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Early Access)! As if you hadn't heard... ;) I know this sale is talked about a ton, but it really is for good reason - there's incredible deals on so, so many things. Need vacation buys? No problem. Looking for some beauty steals? You got it. Want to stock up on designer buys for future months? There's TONS. I'm starting to sound a little like Ariel (haha get it? It's early, cut me some slack) but the point is it's worth shopping or at least checking it out to see if there's something you want to get! Hint: there will be.

Some years are better than others merchandise-wise, but from what I'm seeing this year so far there's a TON of really cute and fun picks. I'll be sharing more of my favorites, things I think you guys *need* to see/shop/may miss at first glance, re-stocks and a ton more during the course of the sale, but I always like to start off by sharing everything that catches my eye right away - AKA the things that are 99.9% likely to go the fastest! A lot of things get re-stocked through the course of the sale, but some things (specifically some designer/brand name items) won't. So act fast, get a cup of coffee and start shopping!
Here's what to add to cart and buy first so you don't miss out - and these buys are GOOD!

Striped Summer Favorites

What's summer style without stripes? Any time I see any sort of colorful, striped top or a pinstriped bathing suit it's hard to resist buying it! Stripes are fun to style all year round but there's something extra exciting about wearing them in the warm summer months. :) I rounded up a bunch of the best striped finds for summer at all different price points - from $11 to $100+, there's something here you're guaranteed to love!

How to Style an Outdoor Bar Cart

Thank you to Faustino Wines for sponsoring today's post. As always all opinions are solely my own!

With all of the outdoor entertaining and summer parties we have going on this season, up your decor and patio set up with an outdoor bar cart! I know how popular indoor bar carts are and how fun they are to style, so I thought it'd be just as fun to set one up on my patio.

5 Outfits to Wear to Stay Cool During a Heat Wave

I'm pretty sure where ever you live, it's safe to say it's been SOOOO hot. Like, 95 with a 102 heat index and 100% humidity. It's been so hot that my pool water is about 88 degrees and barely refreshing! But I swear I am NOT complaining... I love summer and wouldn't trade it for the world! In fact, can it last longer? Hah! I love the warm weather, summer activities and events and spending time in the sun but on the days that it's this hot/humid, getting dressed and leaving your house (aka leaving the AC) can be pretty miserable... So if it's crazy hot where you are and you're struggling with what to wear when you go out so you don't feel like you're overheating within three seconds, here's some outfit inspo - these looks are sure to keep you as comfortable as possible even during these crazy heat waves!

Everything You Actually Need to Heal a Sunburn

Even when you do everything possible to prevent a sunburn and to protect your skin in the sun, there's still always that one time (for me it's always in the beginning of summer) that all the SPF in the world doesn't help... It happens, and although you should always be re-applying sunscreen in the sun, it isn't foolproof!
A couple of weeks ago I was floating around in my pool and it was a super hot day - I had applied sunscreen but didn't re-apply enough - especially with how hot it was out. By the time mid-evening rolled around my legs and shoulders were burning so badly and the aloe was helping, but not as much as I needed it to... My sister told me to try (what sounded like) the most insane way to help make it feel better and at first I told her she was nuts, but by the next morning... WOW. Here's everything you need to heal your sunburn ASAP:

The Best Nail Polish Shades to Try this Summer

Happy first (full) day of summer! So, so excited it's finally here! And there's no better way to kick the best season ever off than with a fresh mani that goes perfectly with a golden, glowing tan - summer manicures are the best thing ever! I'm one of those people who really doesn't enjoy going to the nail salon but love having my nails done. Whether you're more of a bold, statement maker with polish shades or prefer more subtle tones (or constantly do different shades of white on repeat - guilty!), these colors are must tries for summer and whether you're getting your nails done or doing them yourself, you need to try them out this season!

The Trendy & Flattering 2018 Bathing Suit Guide: Under $50, $100 & $200

It's that time of year again to go bathing suit shopping! I think I can speak for most of us when I say that it's definitely not an enjoyable shopping trip... Swimsuits have a way of making us feel so insecure, when really they should be making us feel confident in our bodies. There's so many styles, patterns, fits and of course, prices. And for something so many of us basically live in during the summer months, we all deserve a great (or many) bathing suit that we love to put on! No matter what your budget or how much you want to spend, I put together some of my favorite - and the trendiest - swimsuit finds to shop this season. If you want to spend $25, $50 or beyond, here's tons of swimsuits based on budget (and lots of different styles for different body types, too!):

What NOT to Forget on Your Next Trip (...and probably will!)

Thank you to UpBra for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are solely my own!

No matter how early - or late (guilty) - you start packing for a trip, you're bound to forget something every. single. time. It always happens to me no matter how many lists I make or how organized I feel like I am. Real talk - packing is SO stressful! I think part of it is the stress of having to fit everything, stay under the 50lb weight limit and check everything off of your list at the same time. These are the things you likely have forgotten before on a trip; if you're getting ready to travel this summer, make sure these are at the top of your list!

The Top Amazon Finds You Need to Buy this Summer

Amazon never, ever fails. From things you know you can get in a matter of days for summer - sunscreen, sunglasses, a new pool float - to the things you'd never expect them to have, you can always count on Amazon to make you spend a TON of money, hah! I found so many great finds on Amazon that you NEED to have this summer - you'll love these and will use them all season (and beyond) long!

Golden Summer Yellows Under $100

One of the hottest colors this season is golden yellow. We're seeing it everywhere and as someone whose never owned much yellow of anything, or ever been interested in wearing yellow... I'm LOVING it! In my opinion yellow can be tricky because there's so many shades but golden yellows are really pretty on everyone and especially so for the summer. I've been on the hunt for some of the best golden yellow summer buys and whether you're all-in on the yellow trend or just want a few pops of yellow to add some color, these are under $100 and will have you loving yellow more than you thought you would!

The Best Summer Beauty Products for an Everyday, Flawless Look

Your skincare routine likely evolves as you try new products and changes as the season does - I know that's the case for me! There's always endless pages of new beauty arrivals at cosmetic stores and with so many things that are new and "improved" and "the best ever", who knows what to try?! And not to mention how expensive it can get to try new products and have a draw full of face masks and foundations... Getting off topic here, but you get the point. ;) Summer skincare is unique in that you likely have been in the sun, have a tan or maybe burned a little bit (oops! But we've all been there...) or you feel like your skin is needing some extra TLC before/after/during a trip. I'm a firm believer that less is more AND that your glow comes from your skincare products you use. They technically go hand-in-hand, right?

Sticking to the less is more theme (clearly channeling my inner Meghan Markle, which isn't ever a bad thing! ;), I've been trying out all sorts of new products to achieve a simple, quick and affordable summer glow without using too much product. Here's everything you need to add to cart - for real - to achieve that flawless look this summer!

Energizing Mixed Berry Banana Smoothie Bowl

Thank you to FoodScience of Vermont for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

Let's talk breakfast. What do you have each morning? If your answer is "I don't", me too. I've never been a big breakfast person and haven't ever liked traditional breakfast foods... Some call it crazy, but it's never been my favorite, hah! Ever since moving my daily workouts to the mornings, I've craved something refreshing post-workout and getting ready for the day. Smoothies have always been one of my very favorite things for any meal or time of day, so having a smoothie each morning has made me realize what I've missed out on all these years by not eating each morning - go figure right?! So around 11:00 AM each day, I make one of my favorite smoothie bowls and it gets me - and my day - going for REALS. The only thing better than discovering the power of 3-4 servings of fruit each morning is that it can come with a daily dose of a much needed, natural source of energy.

DIY Mother's Day Gift Basket

Thank you JaM Cellars for sponsoring this post. Looking for Butter Chardonnay near you? Check out their easy-to-use Store Locator! Just pop in your zip code and the Butter will be waiting!

When it comes time each year to decide on what to get your mom or another important woman in your life for Mother's Day, gifts may seem repetitive or have you feeling like you get her the same thing year after year. I know I've been there! My mom will deny it, but she's actually very hard to shop for, hah! I think I just have this idea that I always want to get my mom the very best so I'm always looking for new ideas. A couple of years ago I started putting together themed gift baskets and I'd switch up the theme each year to include all sorts of fun things I know she'll love. This year I'm putting together a basket centered around the JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay; a wine so good you'll want a bottle for yourself too! ;)

Simple Ways to Refresh Your Bathroom on a Budget

With all of the spring cleaning talk going on lately, have you given much thought to your bathroom? Maybe you have and realize it needs some updates, but bathrooms can be SO expensive to renovate. Even if a full reno isn't in your budget this spring, there's tons of ways to update your bathroom and give it a refresh for a fraction of the price of what a renovation would be. If anything, a good refresh will hold you over until a renovation is more feasible - but it may make you realize it's all you really needed! Here's some simple ways to update a bit more economically.

Currently Craving: April's Bright, Colorful Finds

You know what they say... April showers bring May flowers and lots of vibrant, colorful spring buys! ;) Here's to hoping May does bring lots of flowers because this girl (and I can bet most of you) are sooo ready for the warm weather! It's getting nicer day by day in New York and being able to open all of my windows each morning has been so refreshing (and definitely motivating me enough to clean and declutter a LOT!). I found that almost anything I reached for this month, especially for the past week or two, has been nothing but colorful and bright so I thought it was fitting for this month's Currently Craving to be filled with the funnest finds for spring that involve lots of bright shades! Here's 12 things I've loved this month that you won't regret adding to cart today:

How to Spring Clean Your Life in a Week

What exactly is it about spring that makes us want to organize and declutter everything we own? I don't really know the answer to that, but I don't hate it! This spring has started out really weird weather wise and I know the majority of the country can agree with that (and if you can't then I'm not quite sure exactly how to express how jealous I am!) and bad weather = weird funks and moods. Since we can't control the weather or do much other than pray for some warmth (make that STAT...) the one thing we can do is work on is clean out our lives in more ways than just organizing your closet. Here's what to take a closer look at and consider giving a good "spring cleaning" to this season:

Currently Craving: March's Pretty Periwinkles & Shades of Gold

Happy... April!! I had to think about that one for a second! I hope your Easter/Passover weekends (if you celebrate!) were filled with family, celebrating God and warm spring weather - it finally was warm here! Today not so much - I do NOT want to talk about what's on the ground right now (hint: it's white) and the fact that the Yankees Home Opener was switched to tomorrow, but the sun is supposed to come out later so hopefully it melts quickly! I have way too many cute spring things to be wearing to deal with this snow in April LOL! When putting together March's Currently Craving list, I found myself adding all things periwinkle and gold - so here's lots of spring inspiration for you to get just a little more excited for the spring:

What to Pack in Your Handbag While Traveling

Between TSA, meeting weight requirements and remembering everything you need when traveling, it's not easy to know what to prioritize and pack in your handbag and carry-on bag vs. your checked luggage. I always end up having to pack, re-pack and pack again to get everything to fit (and that's after I've forgotten to put something in, naturally). This is probably a sign that I pack too much... But if you get creative you don't have to worry about that. ;) I know I could always use a guide when packing, so here's everything to remember to pack in your handbag when traveling:

At some point, every one of us have most definitely felt an overwhelming feeling. That feeling of getting overwhelmed usually happens when you put something off, let something build up inside, take on too many tasks/overbook yourself, or try to do too many things at once.

Part of feeling well is feeling your best mentally and taking care of yourself should always be at the top of your priority list!

The Lazy Girl's Guide to Looking Cute

Even if you're one of the girls who loves to dress up and spend time putting together trendy outfits each season - we all have our days where we either don't have the time, or the energy... Or just really want to put in minimal effort and still somehow look cute. And I'm here to tell you that it IS possible ladies! ;) I love picking out and planning outfits but some most normal days I find myself wanting to be comfortable but still look put together. Even if you're not normally lazy, we all have lazy days (don't fool yourself! ;) and even then, you can still look like it took you hours to get all dolled up! Here's some of the simplest ways to achieve it:

5-Minute Nighttime Skincare Routine (for when you literally can't even)

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #CleanFaceWithEquate http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV
