Summer is one of my favorite seasons! Bring on the bikinis, sandals, rompers, and… weddings! I’m obsessed with summer weddings – I got married in summer, after all!

Is Amazon Fashion Really Worth All the Hype?

By now, you’ve probably heard about Amazon fashion. You may have even bought one or more clothes yourself! For months, some of my favorite bloggers have shared their super cute and incredibly cheap Amazon finds, but I’ve never ventured to purchase my own. Paper towels, baby toys, even food – sure, but never clothes. I’ve always believed that you get what you pay for and have been loyal to quality stores over the years like Nordstrom and Revolve.

Celebrating My Hubby’s Birthday in Jamaica!

YAH MON! It’s the perfect phrase to describe the Jamaica! Everyone on the island is so kind and accommodating, but laid back. We decided to take a quick vacation to escape the cold and celebrate my husband’s birthday. Lately, we have been taking a lot of trips to the Caribbean because I am still a little nervous to take a long flight with Sophia (Jamaica is only a 3 hour flight from Philly).

Heartache, Divorce and Finding Love Again

On Instagram, everyone’s life looks perfect. We see people’s best version of themselves displayed on perfectly curated little squares.

My life is perfectly imperfect. I’ve encountered and learned so much, more than some people experience in an lifetime (I’ll spare you and save some of these for a future post – haha!).

These opportunities and my trust in God have allowed me to grow as a woman and individual. I’ve become more independent, more caring, and more in charge with what I want out of life.

My life was drastically different just a few years ago. Continue reading “Heartache, Divorce and Finding Love Again”
