Found my new favorite bikini color, yellow! Absolutely in love with the fit of this bikini. It can sometimes be a bit of a risk to get bikinis from a company who doesn’t specialize in bikinis. But I’m absolutely thrilled with this one from Romwe and will definitely be purchasing more and saving a lot.
I’m also loving their retro styled sweaters, it may still be blazing hot here in Miami, but it’s never too early to stock up on some cute sweaters.
Once again I've had the pleasure of walking for the amazing Lila Nikole. She released her new 2018 designs at no better place than Swim Week Miami. And she had even expanded to men's wear and mommy & me suits!
Of course I had to share some memorable images from the show.
Trouble sleeping? Or just want to make your room a more cozy space? Check out these 5 great tips to making the perfect bed!
Tip 1: Smell. Aromatherapy can play a big role in relaxing the body when it comes time to bed. Lavender is one of the best scents to use at night to relax. Try an oil diffuser mixed with a lavender essential oil. Start your diffuser when you’re ready to hit the sack, and let the sweet scent drift you to sleep. (Studies show that lavender has helped many people with insomnia fall asleep easier) [Huffpost]
Tip 2: Bedding. Synthetic materials tend to trap heat in easier which can lead to more troubled sleeping. It is best to use egyptian cotton or pima cotton for bed sheets. Get these in a sateen type finish and you’ll be off to bed in no time. [Today.com]
Tip 3: Laundry. Everyone knows there is nothing better than jumping in a bed with fresh clean linens. It is suggested that you clean your bedding every 7 to 10 days.
Tip 4: Color. The color of your room and bedding can also help you either stay awake or fall asleep better. The best colors to help one sleep are colors such as; blue, purple, grey, silver, neutrals or cool colors to lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate, which in turn relax the body. Try to stay away from bright colors like, reds or orange, if you are obsessed with these colors you can easily add them into a couple throw pillows for your bed.
Tip 5: Weight. Something a lot of us may not know is that comforters actually have different weights. It is suggested that a person uses a blanket with the weight of 10% plus one pound of a persons body weight. This means if you are 100 pounds you would get a 11 pound blanket. The pressure of the weight on a persons body, “…stimulates the release of calming hormones and neurotransmitters all night long” (friendshipcircle.org).

A part of graduating from Florida Gulf Coast University is volunteering for 100hours at a non profit organization. As a transfer student I am only required 40, but today I found the place I will be acquiring all 40 hours, plus some!
There is this amazing project called The Talkin’ Monkeys, and they are literally doing such a awesome things for these animals.
A few of the primates here were saved from horrible, abusive homes, and now live in an amazing sanctuary where they are well looked after 24/7.
Today was only orientation so we did not do too much interactive activities, but I am looking forward to spending many hours here.
I will be posting more about my time at Talkin’ Monkeys, and I will show you guys the bond I create with these amazing, intelligent animals.
