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.
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.
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? 😛

Absolutely in love with this sporty “I Love Alaska” hoodie from Livin’ the MAD Life! It definitely made some appearances while on my trip to Alaska and was the perfect piece for my travel wardrobe.

I know living in a hot place during summer, like good ole’ Florida, can make dressing difficult. From stepping outside to the dripping humidity, to sitting in a cold office for hours, dressing can sometimes get confusing.
Today I wanted to put together one of my favorite office looks to take you from outside to indoors. My biggest tips are to layer, layer, layer and to wear clothes that cover your body but are lightweight in material. That being said, my first and favorite piece of this outfit are White House, Black Market’s, ponte slim ankle pants!
I am obsessed with the ponte slim ankle pants from WHBM, they cover your legs, but are light in material, so you won’t be dripping in sweat when you step outdoors. Yet they’ll keep you warm and stylish indoors.
For the top I would wear a sheer long sleeve shirt, with sleeve that could easily be rolled up. One of the best shirts for transitioning from hot to cold is Express’s Portofino shirt! They have a crazy selection of portofino shirts that are sure to fit all different types of styles.
And to top off the outfit it’s always a good idea to bring a heavier jacket that you can throw on over your portofino top! I recently picked up this number from Express and am dying to wear it out!
And I can’t forget about all those guys out there who struggle with the same problem! For all my fellows out there struggle to get dressed for work, while keeping it comfortable, need to try these awesome new men’s underwear! Created by CEOs just like you, to make your workdays a little more comfortable. Check them out here
What are you top tips for dressing at the office, while not melting outdoors?

Body suits are totally in! And I am in love with this one piece from Forever 21. The perfect staple for your summer wardrobe. Bodysuits are not only a swimwear fashion statement, but you can throw on a pair of shorts, jeans or skirt and make it an appropriate outfit for daytime.

Two things that make a girl happy, tropical bodysuits and a Starbucks Chai Latte. Today’s location was on the infamous Ocean Drive in Miami South Beach.
For some reason Miami was recently voted the Rudest City in America, a surprise to me. How could someone be mean in such a gorgeous place?! 😀

Formerly known as the Versace Mansion, The Villa Casa Casuarina is definitely a must see destination, only steps away from Miami Beach. Although the only way to take a peek inside of the mansion is through a dinner reservation at Gianni’s, a booked stay at one of the ten different suites, or some other form of reservation, you should take any opportunity you have to explore the amazing grounds.
Today, I was lucky enough to spend the morning exploring the mansion and snapped some images; from the Azure suite, to the stunning pool made of 24 karat gold! I was definitely itching to jump in the pool with this crazy Florida summer heat, next time I’ll remember to pack a swimsuit.

A couple months ago I was pleasantly surprised to find a beautifully packaged pink and white box outside of my door. And inside the box was even more cute packaged goodies! Frank had paid me a visit and I was not mad about it. 🙂
I was sent the Frank Body original Coffee Body Scrub and Body Balm. First off let me just say I am a huge fan of these products because of their all natural and vegan ingredients.
Their body scrub is made with Coffee Beans, Almond Oil, Vitamin E oils and Sea Salt. And their body balm is a mixture of Coconut Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Coffee Arabica Seed Oil and Beeswax. All stuff that we can actually understand and I’m all about those natural ingredients!
So besides the cute packaging and amazing ingredients, the products themselves have worked wonders for my skin.
I have relatively normal skin with a few breakouts here and there and a little bit of hyperpigmentation. I would use the coffee scrub about 2x a week as a deep exfoliator. I can instantly notice the texture of my skin smoothens, my skin appears brighter and my face is baby soft. My random breakouts have gone down and my skin feels overall more healthy, and not to forget the smell is incredible!
I have recently started using the body scrub for a few stretch marks that I have developed, so I will definitely keep you posted with any results I see!
The body balm is also a great product and very moisturizing. Though I would recommend only using it at night, as it does not soak into the skin very quickly. Since it has so many natural oils, it takes quite longer than a regular lotion to set. That being said, apply this stuff all over before bed and you will definitely have baby soft skin by the morning.
I am so in love with both of these products that I am itching to try some of their new stuff. Especially their peppermint body scrub, yum!!
