What New Show to Watch?

I’m sure we have all had the same conversations with our friends, family, co-workers and even strangers!

“What new show should I watch,” “What book should I read,” “Where should we eat tonight,” “Which Podcasts do you listen too,” and “What movie should I watch tonight?”

Well, I’ve found the perfect app that allows you to connect with your friends, family, and strangers where you can put all of your favorites in on convenient location! Friendspire is actually a super-cool invention, that makes you think “why didn’t I think of that,” it allows me to rate and leave a review for TV shows, Movies, Podcasts, Books and Restaurants. Making it easy to see what some of your friend’s favorites are.

Especially today, people are being quarantined to their homes and running out of things to read and watch, making this an even more perfect time to check out and download Friendspire. Think a social media app to connect you with other users, but also using it as a source of information and recommendations. I can tell you this, I’ve been loving it and even created a pretty thorough profile sharing only my favorites!

My Friendspire’s Show List

As you can tell I love shows that provide me a comedic relief, such as Workaholics, Dave and Bob’s Burgers. But also throwing in some fantasy like the Originals and Lucifer. I can tell you all of these shows are only my favorites! And all can be seen on Hulu or Netflix.

My Friendspire’s Movie List

I’m not as big of a movie person, I think its harder for me to find several hours watching one thing, the commitment of a movie is too much for me. hahaha, but nonetheless I still wanted to share a few of my favorites like Shrek 2, The Count of Monte Cristo and of course Lord of the Rings.

 

And you can even make a playlist catered for whatever mood or setting you want. Here is “Aroon’s Night In,” as you can tell I’m a huge fan of comedy shows. And if you have not seen Dave, with Lil Dicky in it, you MUST! It’ll have you crying of laughter, available on Hulu.

Luau Bridal Shower Invitations! Oh Wow!

I’m sure some of you have received a cute invitation sometime recently, to honor a close friend or relatives’ wedding ceremony. And if not, I’m sure you will soon, as wedding season is upon us and late summer and early fall are the most popular times to host a wedding. One of my best friends just so happens to be having her wedding this season and I could not have been more excited to open up my cute wedding and bridal shower invitation!

 

Today’s blog post will be a fun one, as I wanted to share this fun bridal shower invitation site I’ve recently discovered! As you know, here in Miami, everything is tropical, so of course I was drawn to the Luau Bridal Shower Invitations section. And what better place to look, than Basic Invite. Basic Invite is a free site that allows you to completely customize any invitation and take some stress away from planning the big day! And when I say completely customize, I mean it! They have nearly every color imaginable and over 40 different colors of envelopes. Now I don’t plan on having my own wedding anytime soon, but knowing you can have your all in one wedding invitation and bridal shower creation process, just a click away, definitely makes things easier! But I do know every girl has her wedding Pinterest board on deck, so planning ahead doesn’t hurt either.

I think one of my favorite parts about Basic Invite is their Seal & Send Wedding Invitations. I know I had to recently RSVP to my best friend’s wedding, and it was actually such a fun little process, to check off the card and send it back with my RSVP! Basic Invite actually has an invitation that prints the guest’s addresses on the front of them, so you don’t even need an invitation set! Cute, fun and saving paper! And of course, after the events, you’ll need to make sure to send all of your guest’s bridal shower thank you cards, which you can create in a similar process as the original bridal shower invitations.

They also give you the ability to create your wedding website, where guests can be directed to your site to get all the details needed!

Being a fellow Pinterest lover and all things girly, of course, I had to share some of my own favorite designs from the site. And aside from their stunning Luau Bridal Shower Invitations, my absolute favorite designs are some of their custom, clear, business cards and invitations.

The Mother/Daughter Duo

As most of you know, I’ve been working with my mother, Megan Duncanson, for this last year and I could not be happier! We both started a vegan purse line, Livin’ the MAD Life, in January of 2018, and I’ve recently begun to help manage her art company MADART Studios. It has been super exciting, and a lot of new stuff going on!

I wanted to share a little video with some random work chats with myself, Aroon Duncanson and my mom, Megan Duncanson. Enjoy!

Palm Trees and Summer Breeze

Took a little stroll down Española Way, in Miami Beach. Obsessed with the palm leaf trend and this dress is perfect for the South Beach culture!
Española Way is one of my favorite places to walk down. It feels like I'm back in Spain exploring the new restaurants and hidden secret spots. Definitely a place to visit if you're ever in the area and want some authentic Spanish food.

Summer Preperation 

Today’s post was inspired by the incredibly hot, hundred degree weather we are experiencing in South Beach.

Summer is just around the corner and it’s always nice to get prepared ahead of time. So I’ve linked some of my favorite summer products to keep you glowy this season! As well as some of my favorite summer tips.

Glowy skin//

My absolutely favorite product for glowy skin is bio oil! You can use it all over your body as well as your face, to give your skin that extra boost and moisture it craves. 

I’ve also made up my own concoction of body oil. Inside i mixed coconut oil // vitamin e oil // green tea tree oil // rose hip oil // bio oil. I use this little concoction before bedtime to allow my skin to absorb all of the amazing vitamins and  nutrients!

SPF! SPF! SPF! I’ve always used SPF on my face because I was always told that you needed too. But recently I’ve realized just how important it is. That being said, I’ll never go a day without SPF on my face. If I do miss a day, I’ll notice a complete difference in my skin and pigmentation. My favorite is Dermalogica SPF 50.


Summer tip//

Join a gym that has a variety of class, to allow you to mix up your routine and stay motivated! I recently joined my local Equinox gym, and I’m absolutely obsessed! Gotta get summer beach body ready, am I right?!

Drink lots of water! I try to drink at least a gallon a day, and I notice a huge difference from drinking lots of water. Benefits I’ve experienced are, flatter tummy, healthy skin, energy and appetite control. I mean, our bodies are mostly made of water, so shouldn’t we try to drink lots of it? 😛

Netflix & Veg

Taking a spin on the ever famous “Netflix and chill” idea, I’ve decided to post my ideal Netflix and Vegetate night. 

And who says you need to have a significant other to have a fun night in. If anyone is the master of staying in, I’d have to say I take the cake. I’d much rather cozy up to a movie then spend the night partying and I know some of you guys have to feel the same! 

Today I wanted to share a few key things needed to make your night in, the coziest.

A Friend (Furry, or not, or both!)

My friends and I usually always opt to have a girls night in, and having someone to gossip with always makes the night more fun. And of course I can’t forget my furry little friend, Finn, who you can find snuggled at our feet. 

A Good Show

Up to now I’ve been on “The Bachelor” bandwagon and haven’t been able to stop! 

But if there aren’t any good shows to watch, or you’re all caught up, here are some of my all time favorite romcom/romance movies. 

Hitch – The Holiday – Friends with Benefits – Breakfast at Tiffanys – Pride and Prejudice 

Comfy PJs

And there’s nothing better that slipping into my favorite satin pjs or cozy robe. Here is one of my favorites from AdoreMe!

Yummy Snack

My infamous caramel popcorn is always the most popular guy of the night and the most key ingredient to your your Netflix and veg night! Here is a link to my caramel popcorn recipe!
