Father’s Day in Peplum

I’m clearly in love with peplum! So much, that this is the second look I have styled in this trend. 🙂

SHOP EARRINGS HERE

SHOP LOOK HERE

I wore this chic and comfortable peplum top, my favorite distressed jeans and wedges on Father’s Day. I also styled my look with my new favorite handbag and gorgeous earrings from Beck’d – a shop I found while here in Columbus, GA. Make sure to check it out, because Ali delivers nationwide.

While we were away from my husband this happened to be the first Father’s Day that we spent with my dad in years. Our father’s celebration took us to my favorite Thai restaurant in Columbus. My family had never been but loved it.

So, if you’re ever in the Columbus/Fort Benning area and in search of Thai Food, I highly recommend that you check out Thai House.

After dinner, we went for a stroll at the mall, the girls had a great time on the carousel and meeting new friends at the mall’s play area. Remember, if you liked this look, make sure to pin it for later.

Blue Sky Tag

Happy Hump Day Y’all! So this week I wanted to pay it forward to other bloggers who inspire me. I was nominated by Lisa at Sparkleese to do the Blue Sky Tag.

What an honor to be recognized by a fellow blogger. 🙂  She asked me a series of question and well my answers are below. Also, below are questions that I am asking the bloggers I am nominating. So keep reading and make sure to check them all out. 😉

Why did you start blogging?

I have always loved writing; so blogging seemed like a natural way to let out my creative side. I danced around the idea for a while and finally decided to go for it.

Unicorns or Mermaids?

This is a tough one… But I think Mermaids. There’s something magical about them. My daughter and I absolutely love mermaids.

What is your favorite meal to prepare?

I has to be salmon, it’s tasty, healthy and quick to make. Check out the recipe I just shared here.

Broiled Salmon

Where is your favorite place to travel to?

I love to travel to at least one new place each year. But traveling to Panama is the best. It’s still home and I have so much there that makes every visit a special one.

If you could have any super power, what would it be?

To read minds… It would come in handy, I’m sure!

What was the first concert you went to?

Salsa concert by a Salsa Boy Band from Venezuela named Salserin. I was in my tween years and got to go with my friend from school. So much fun!

Have you ever broken a bone? If so, how did it happen?

Luckily, I have not!

What is your best quality?

I am a good listener. At least this is what people tell me. That I’m easy to talk to. It’s funny because I wanted to be a psychologist and later changed my major to Communications.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I don’t know if it’s a hidden talent, but… I use my feet for picking up things that fall on the floor.

What is the best advice you have ever received?

My parents telling me to pursuit an education. While, I have a great husband who takes care of us to the point that I am able to focus on raising our girls. It gives me peace of mind knowing that I am also able to use my education to provide for our family if needed. 😉

What is the first thing you would buy if you ever won a large amount of money?

I’d most likely buy a few vacations. I love the gift of experiences and the memories that are made. Two years later and my daughter still talks about her birthday trip to Disney World. Traveling is the best thing one can buy.

Quick, Healthy, Tasty Broiled Salmon Recipe

Quick, Healthy, Tasty Broiled Salmon Recipe

Salmon is one of my favorite meals to prepare. I’ll admit that while in Georgia visiting my parents, I haven’t cooked much. I’m spoiled, I know. 🙂 So, I thought I could give my mom a break from the kitchen at least for a day and decided to make my salmon recipe for dinner.

First, I lined a baking sheet with foil paper, sprayed it with olive oil and set aside. Then I rinsed the salmon with cold water, seasoned with parsley, rosemary garlic and red pepper flakes.

Summer Body with my Ellie Activewear June Box

Summer Body with my Ellie Activewear June Box

I talk a lot about social media, but this is where I share a lot of my day to day and live adventures. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have tried to become more active.

I needed the right gear to help me continue with my fitness goals. So, I was beyond excited to be able to partner with Ellie Activewear and receive my first subscription box.

GET $10 OFF YOUR FIRST ELLIE BOX 

Ellie Activewear Subscription Box

The June box was packed with some serious goodies; including a pair of capris, a waist pack, tank, a sports bra, and a cap.

The capris are perfect for this time of year, I loved the design and hues.

Ellie Activewear Subscription Box

Because going out for a run often means carrying a phone, earphones, keys, water, etc. I loved getting the waist by Bally Total Fitness in the Ellie box. It doubles in size because it’s expandable; and has a wire port – my favorite feature – to easily connect your headphones. This is important because I CANNOT run without my música! 😉

Ellie Activewear Subscription Box

The sports bra is by Marika, and not only does it have the cutest back design but it also has removable cup pads. The tank has a mesh front and cutout back, which make it light and super comfortable for me to run in.

The last item is the cap which has reflective details and mesh panels to keep your head cool.  The reflective details were perfect because now that I have been on vacation, I have had to push my running schedule as far back as eight at night.

Overall, I LOVED my Ellie June Box. The items are comfy, chic and high quality. If you haven’t already, go check them out.

Use this link and get $10 OFF your first box. You’re welcome! 😉

Balancing Household Duties as Newlyweds

When you got married, you probably never stopped to think how something so simple as dish duty would impact your relationship. However, maintaining the balance of your relationship day in and day out often depends on those little details of living.

It can take a lot of adjustment for newlyweds to learn to live together. Often, it takes time and forgiveness. Nowhere is this more apparent than in household chores. Here are some tips for how to balance household duties in a home where both of the newlyweds work and live together…

Start how you want to continue

Many people start the beginning of a relationship with all sorts of plans for being a domestic goddess, or a husband who pampers his wife. The urge to serve your spouse is something that you should always hold on to, but it’s important to also remember that how you start out is often how you’ll continue. Enlisting help for household duties will be harder down the line when your life becomes more busy and stressful. So make sure that from the get-go, you both realize that you need to work as a team to run the household. Take turns, and take time out to appreciate what the other person does to help life run more smoothly.

Friday Fashion; Off Shoulder Top

If we’re friends on social media, you may have seen that I recently turned 30! While it wasn’t a grand celebration, it was perfect!

The celebration started early with a road-trip from Houston to Biloxi, MS. There we spent a day and had a great time. But were mostly excited to continue our trip from Biloxi to Columbus Georgia and see my family.
