Puerto Rico: Flight Carry-On Essentials

IMG_0234XVsmsm

Mat and I leave for another adventure on Sunday; an adventure that is much needed (especially from our little guy). Every few months, Mat and I leave for a getaway just to ourselves, mainly to get away from life’s roles and focus on each other/ fully unwind. This time we’re off to San Juan, Puerto Rico!

Can’t wait to post a city guide for San Juan (Romantic Edition of course) and about our stay at the lovely Marriott San Juan!


 But let’s talk about packing! It should require major thought/organization. Having a bag full of crap we don’t need is the worst, especially when we’re constantly going in and out of our bags pre/mid/post flight.

I’ve included a detailed list of the major components of my carry-on, which is usually the same whenever I fly somewhere: Continue Reading

Fam Date: Tulip Festival

IMG_9341sm

We took a mini trip to the Skagit Tulip Festival to check out the beautiful fields of colour before they get chopped and sold. It was a perfectly sunny day and we caught the perennials at golden hour, which was amazing. AND Roozengaarde was so empty we almost had the fields to ourselves–perfect evening!

Later we got some grub at the Skagit Valley Food Co-op, which is our favourite place to grab a bite in Mount Vernon. They use fresh, organic, and locally sourced ingredients with every dish and saying it’s all delicious would be a major understatement. Vegan, vegetarian, raw, gluten-free….dey got it! My mouth is currently watering. Dammit.

OH, and Noah is wearing the sweetest backpack by Fjällräven, a Swedish company that’s been around since the 1960′s. They have framed backpacks that are super comfortable…plus they are cute to boot.

All Hail Long Weekends

IMG_8290xvsm

Another Easter has come and gone, and I hope all you lovely people had fantastic holiday full of loved ones, all things pastel, and loads of chocolate!

Noah had his first Easter egg hunt this year (where he actually knew what was–kind of–going on) and I totally thought he would be sugar-high and off-the-wall the entire weekend, but he was such a good little bunny! Probably because I got to use my favourite tool, bribery, with the pounds of chocolate we received.

Speaking of my little man, I got this precious necklace with his name engraved on it. If you want to get one for yourself, or want to give one as a gift (Mother’s Day coming up), click here and you’ll automatically get 10% off…plus it’s already 25% off…so, that comes too 35% off.

Woohooo!

To New Gladiators!

IMG_7646xvsm

I completely tore through my favourite black gladiator sandals last summer. I’ve had them for 6 years and have worn them religiously…and mercilessly. They actually broke in HALF walking through the sand in Mexico–a little piece of me died that day.

Well, I’m pretty stoked about these T.U.K. sandals because they are ridiculously sturdy. It’s like a creeper/boot/sandal hybrid and I’m hoping these last me yeeeaaaarrss to come.

ORANGE AND PURPLE VERA WANG SUNGLASSES. I’m excited ’bout ‘em.

OH, and I scored this fuzzball for a sweater for $5 (thrifting rules).

Xena the Free-Spirited Fairy Princess

IMG_7508xvsmfade

If Xena the Warrior Princess had a twin sister who was more of a “free-sprited fairy princess”, I feel like she would wear something like this.

Can’t wait to wear these pieces this Summer. Love how the top, skirt, and socks are all the same material; it almost gives a ‘lingerie’ feel. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, this Birkin Crop Top by Catherine Fulmer is killer. You can totally wear it backside-forward as well!

Can’t leave without mentioning these sunnies! Iweartheheadress and Fellow Earthlings collaborated on two sunglasses this season (these  nude transparent/mirrored lens pair being one of them). These are currently sold out, but they still have a white pair that is equally as gorgeous as well. Check it here!

I accessorized the look with pretty gold rings by Galisfly! They seriously have the coolest rings with really easy ‘ring stack sets‘ that make decorating the fingers easy peasy.

Few Of The Faves

IMG_7140xvsm

There are 3 specific pieces from today’s look that I am completely obsessed with:

  1. Dream Catcher Necklace that is a thing of dreams. Love the burnished silver and it’s ultra boho vibe.
  2. Plain white tee, that actually isn’t that plain. This Cheap Monday tee has an open fold in the back, and it’s raw edge finish is a nice touch as well.
  3. RED DOCS. Bold and beautiful. Thanks Lotus Leaf ;)

70′s Orange

IMG_6936xvsm

Retro, rich and eye-catching–I’m definitely still not over this 70′s orange. I’m bathed in orange. I would actually bathe in orange. I’d BE orange. I love orange.

Grabbed this vintage skirt, which is totally like the one from Alexa Chung’s capsule collection for AG…SCORE.
