Stripes and Blue

Happy Tuesday Lovelies,

It’s been a minute, but I hope you beautiful people are doing just wonderful! Now that Summer is in full effect, the sleeveless maxis are out and you all know that I have fallen in love with stripes over the years and this striped maxi dress had to make its way to my closet; and if you didn’t know or maybe if you’re new here, blue is one of my favorite colors and I love this combination. Striped and blue is a perfect Summer combination and paired with this clear and white Vince Camuto summer bag, I was ready for brunch and then out on a boat ride. – I hope you like it. Stay cool out there!

How I style my new favorite summer bag

Cute-boho-style-summer-look

You know there’s no Summer Fashion without a woven bag; at least in my book, and this cute and stylish woven bag just happens to be my new favorite this season. It’s gorgeous, very versatile and easy to carrie around with enough room to keep my essentials on the go. I love it, and I love how it makes the perfect accessory on this boho-inspired look.

I’ve had this cute little top for a while now, and after debating between handing it down to my daughter or keep it, I finally decided to pair it with with these blush culottes, which I’ve also owned for a while but never worn before. I’m glad it turned out to be a cute casual chic outfit and perfect one for that matter for a any casual summer gathering or function.

I hope you enjoy today’s look. Would you wear it? Have a great day.

Kicking Off Summer…

This post was sponsored Optimum Nutrition as part of Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

There’s no better time in the year than Spring and Summer to enjoy outdoors activities, and for someone who lives in the Midwest, I cannot tell you how much this time is anticipated! We Midwesterners can’t just see a warmer weather without being overly excited to enjoy some sun-filled outdoors activities.

Can you really blame us? Let’s break out the snacks and refreshment and let’s head outdoors; but before anything and all things, let’s not forget the most important meal of the day. Kashi GO Cereal -Peanut Butter Crunch is a favorite on the breakfast table, and I have to admit that we also love to snack on them. It’s good that this cereal is plant-based and packed with 10 gram of protein in every serving; The Bonus is that, you can’t deny how great this crunchy, peanut butter goodness cereal tastes. Yummy 🙂

From biking, to beach times, to entertaining family and friends, Summer just could not come any sooner; and we know there’s no summer entertainment without some delicious meals or snacks and refreshments. Some of the most coveted drinks at our get-togethers are Anheuser Busch Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold and  Lime Cactus. If you enjoy a light and refreshing lime taste, Michelob ULTRA Lime Cactus is for you. On the other hand, Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold is a light lager with a superior golden taste.

It’s good to know that it contains no artificial colors and flavors and is triple filtered and brewed. I also like that it’s made with organic grains which not only leaves you with a fresh and pure taste; but also gives you that guilt-free feeling of drinking a better version of similar beverages. In all cases and circumstances, it’s important to drink responsibly and not to drive under influence.

Summer calls for a lot of outdoor activities and one of the things I always try to remind myself of is to always have natural and delicious snacks at hands at all times; especially when kids are involved. Trust me it’s a lifesaver. Some of favorite are Optimum Nutrition Salted Toffee Pretzel Protein Crisp. I love that they are protein bars, but they are very unique and delicious with crispy texture. Another favorite is Chocolate Donut Cake Bites.

They are deliciously whipped and coated with chocolate flavored frosting. I love that they are a convenient grab and go option for both active kids and adults. These snacks are not only delicious, but they keep you fueled for the day.

If you haven’t made up your mind yet as to if you should try these yummy snacks for your summer time activities, wait no longer. Go to your nearest Walmart now and thank me later.

We love to enjoy precious and unforgettable moments, and while we have our own Summertime traditions, we also love to experience new things and explore new places; Summer is just perfect to get out and get active and Walmart is inviting everyone to enter their Get out Get active Sweepstakes.

Go enter HERE now to win some awesome prizes, including a Schwinn Sidewinder bike. For official rules please visit GetActiveThisSummer.com

Schwinn Sidewinder bikes with their steel mountain-style frame and front and suspension ride so smoothly and are perfect for your summer biking activities. Their light and strong alloy rims provide added durability and stability. I also love the fact that the bikes have adjustable seat to accommodate all heights. Another great feature of the Schwinn Side bikes is that the front disc brake and rear linear pull brake combine for reliable all-condition stopping. If you ask me, all these features are all important in choosing a good and reliable bike, but for more information on Schwinn Bikes, you can click on this link.

Memorial Day Weekend At The Beach

Polka-dot-swimming-suit.

Hello darlings,

I hope you had a great Memorial Day Weekend. What a great way to kick off Summer by spending time with family at a lake beach! I couldn’t have asked for a better swimming suit than my new polka dot swim dress from Always for me. It’s such a cute swim dress and the fit is great and very comfortable; plus it’s polka dot. 🙂 As you can tell, this swim dress made me feel sexy without showing too much skin, and it’s perfectly made for the curvy ladies like myself. Wouldn’t you agree?

Blooming In Spring

beautiful-spring-dress

Hello darlings,

Spring got me all blooming; and I can’t complain. When I attended the Spring Blogger Bash with Bachman’s in Bloom a couple of weeks ago, I knew I was going to be in a happy place because your girl loves flowers of all sorts; and this event was all about flowers!!! Bonus: the most interesting behind the scenes of how to grow them and protect them!

Getting to learn and experience all things flowers from the well-known and loved Bachman’s in Minneapolis, was not only educational and such a beautiful experience in its own, but also so much fun.

A group of wonderful bloggers were all prepared to take in the experience and we were warmly welcome and we also enjoyed light refreshments, pizzas, cookies, and more. Another bonus: we got to go home with  goodie bags filled with, well, flowers and plants, and gardening-related goodies, how obvious!

One of the highlights of the event was the pretty and creative selfie station set up in the growing ranch. Everyone of us wanted to take some cute pictures there! #Bloggerslife… and it was so much fun and we took some cute pics! I did manage to take pictures around the ranch, because who wouldn’t with some beautiful and colorful flowers everywhere?!

It was such a loving and great experience and I got to make a new friend! She’s such a beautiful soul and we both just hit it off right away like we knew each other for the longest time. I even went a little emotional and shared a lengthy Instagram post here along a picture with her.

Other than that, Bachman’s made a girl happy and blooming on a beautiful Spring day; and the pictures here can certainly attest to that! 🙂
