 I am smitten with every single swimsuit in Marysia’s swim line. They look like they would be so flattering. These are top on my list of must buy bikinis for this summer

 I used to be very loyal to my Purpose face wash until my mom gave me a bottle of this Shiseido face wash recently. Now I will never use any other face wash. It foams up and lathers really well- I hate face washes that do not lather because I feel like they don’t get your face clean. This smells heavenly and a tiny squirt goes a long way. It removed all my make-up and made my skin so soft. I highly recommend!


My grandfather gave me this necklace while I was home as a belated birthday gift ( and yes my mom helped him in picking it out). I love it so much. I have been wearing it nonstop. You might have noticed it with my Ann Taylor Dress.   It goes with everything!


 I think this might be the perfect summer dress. Soft, comfortable, stylish, and affordable!  It comes in many different colors but my two favorites are the stripes and the neon pink. Thinking I am going to splurge for both!

Normally I am not a frozen pizza girl. Don’t get me wrong I love pizza but the frozen one’s are usually pretty disappointing. I tried this pizza at my parents house and loved it. It had great flavors and the spinach and goat cheese were the perfect light combination. This is one frozen pizza I will be buying.

  1. Love, love, love the crewneck dress. I think I may need this as well. I have been drooling over House of Harlow's pieces forever. I need to break down and buy.

  2. okay lady, that neon gap dress will be mine. Mark my words. I spy just a little bit of nip in at the waist and that's my kind of shift!

    Love the turquoise bikini!

    Hi Natalie-
    Love your new necklace! It looks fab with both outfits you pictured. Just heard about that face wash over the weekend! The girl who colors my hair used to work for Shiseido and highly recommends all their products. Pizza seems pretty yummy, too. Now that I have a new baby and three year old, looks like an easy option for dinner. : )

  5. Oh Marysia's line is the bomb. I have a couple of her swimsuits, and so do Lilly and Fletcher. Highly recommend. Didn't you already buy that striped Gap dress?

    Loving the Gap dress!!!

  7. Sara says:

    I just ordered the GAP dress in neon last night! I can't believe how ute their stuff is lately!

  8. WE LOVE that pizza too! They sell that brand at Costco! I want to say they only have the meat (you know the kind with every meat known to man) version. I love the way that pizza crust is super thin and almost folds up when you cook it šŸ™‚ LOVE those dresses! Esp. the pink one!

  9. Thank you for the bathing suit recommendations! I'm headed to the beach in a few weeks and have been keeping my eyes open!

    LOVE everything on your list!! And how fab is your necklace? I may have to try that face wash. I hate it when they don't lather either! Awesome list!

  11. Love those bathing suits! They are absolutely amazing!!

  12. Taylor says:

  13. any comfy dress in hot pink is a win to me! Thanks for the tip!

  14. A friend of mine is a friend of Marysia, she seems like such a cool girl.. did you know she has a blog? I think you'd like it- she shares pics of her family and her business (http://marysiaswim.blogspot.com/).
    So surprised you recommended a frozen pizza šŸ˜‰ but I am also a sucker for white pizza (so flavorful!) so I will have to try! Just yesterday I listed some of my splurge/steal bathing suits, let me know what you think! XO Georgine

  15. I love abalone! My mother had a ring and I was obsessed with it when I was a little girl. I might have to get that necklace and copy you!

  16. Love the Gap dresses and I am now super intrigued in that pizza!! šŸ™‚

  17. LOVE those swimsuits…I definitely need a new one this summer and that little ruffled number is *GORG*! And dude, grandpa is one stylin' gift giver (c:
