As you all know, I just got married a couple of weeks ago and it was the best day ever! But planning my own wedding wasn’t as easy as I thought. There were lots of details that I wanted to put in the wedding and it was pretty stressful to say the least. There were lots of last minute things that popped up, even the day of the wedding. However, the day still turned out to be very special for us and our guests.
The honeymoon part was also something that my husband and I both looked forward to. And it was such a refreshing time. We enjoyed the beach, the activities, the food and drinks, and the people. I will share more of that on another post.
While traveling to another country that’s unfamiliar to you is fun and exciting, it can also be stressful, especially when you don’t know what to expect, right? But being quite ready and fully-packed up with the right products to take with you can be key, especially if you don’t know where to get the products you normally use in a foreign country where there’s no Walmart or Walgreens.… View Post
I’ve always had long hair for as long as I can remember and sometimes caring for it and maintaining healthy, shiny hair can be quite challenging.
There’s just so many products out there to choose from but unless you are aware of the ingredients in hair care products that are harmful for your hair and health in general, you probably will just grab anything that you think “will work for you” or what you think already works for you. I know I do.
However, chemicals such as sulfates, gluten, and paraben are pretty common in hair care products that are readily available at our local pharmacies and grocery stores. Sulfates are basically a mild detergent that is used to create suds. The issue with it though is that it strips your hair of its natural essential oils and weakens your hair follicle and strands over time. Parabens, on the other hand, are known to cause cancer. And while glutens have no direct correlation to the health of your hair, having no gluten in hair care products helps those who have sensitivity to it.… View Post
Happy Friday Guys! I’m currently in Dallas, Texas for the weekend with some blogger babes, touring what the city has to offer in fashion and otherwise. Although I’ve been to Dallas quite a few times, I don’t think that I’ve really explored it and being the big city that it is, I’m sure it has a lot to offer! I took a mini 4-hour road trip yesterday and today I’m sharing with you what I have in my travel bag.
I don’t always get to do this kind of post so thought it’d be fun to show you what’s in my travel bag this time. FYI, I literally took this from my hotel room at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek so this is legitimately what I have in my Barrington Gift St. Anne Tote travel bag! We will be everywhere in Dallas – from strolling at the park to visiting museums to shopping, makeovers, and nightouts so what you will see are my must-haves! … View Post
In just a few days, we will all officially say “goodbye” to summer. Sigh. I am already dreading the cold weather. My body is always tensed and stiff during cold season and I just hated it. This tropical girl can tolerate a 90 degree weather anytime versus a 50 degree. I get cold in my house at 79 degrees for goodness’ sake. So you can imagine why I absolutely dread the cold season.
So with the change of season, comes the change in temperatures, as well as a few things in our closet and daily rituals, to adopt to the weather – from skin care to wardrobe, here are my 5 “must have” suggestions for you. … View Post

When you think of poolside parties or just spending the weekend by the pool, the last thing you’d probably think of bringing with you is coffee or coffee-based drinks, right? You’re probably thinking soft drinks, margaritas, daquiri, or sangria. But it doesn’t hurt to get out of the box once in a while and add them to your list of drinks at the party. And don’t get me wrong, it’s not the hot coffee that I’m talking about. … View Post
