I hope you are all having a wonderful summer vacation. So far, my summer has been fantastic! A few hours ago I just got back from Orlando, Florida. I wanted to show you some pictures from my trip. Enjoy! x

The Florida Mall was amazing! They have a Roxy store that I went slightly crazy in. I got such cute stuff. (A haul will be coming soon!)

Day 4

I decided to head to the pool by myself to clear my head and simply relax. It was a great start to my day.

My mom and I went to the Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. I purchased a swimsuit cover up and some Nike headbands. I also purchased some bras and underwear from Vanity Fair. 

Later we went to Downtown Disney and saw Inside Out. It was so cute!

Since AMC had a free refill on their popcorn my sister and I took advantage of it. Before going back to the theater, we snapped this cute pic! 

Day 5 

Since we had some spare time, we decided to check out Fort Wilderness Lodge, another hotel. 

As you can see, it's absolutely gorgeous. 

Day 6

To kick off our last day we hit up my favorite place to eat for breakfast. They have the most delicious pancakes.

We then rented speed boats and enjoyed the gorgeous scenery.

I went out onto the porch/deck and wrote in my journal. I was having some strange dreams.

To conclude the vacation, we went to the Swan & Dolphin hotel to miniature golf. 

It was such a fun experience. I'm so lucky to go to Florida 1-3 times a year. I absolutely love spending time with my family under the Florida sun.

Summer Wishlist

Hello everyone,

Summer is in the air, everyone! I'm so excited!

Here is my wish list for the summer season. Some of the things are a bit pricey, but I found some dupes! Who doesn't love a good bargain?!

Since I'm starting my college courses this summer I really want to get something sharp. I'll probably be the only 16 year old in the class, therefore it's important I make a good impression. After class I plan on volunteering at a local hospital. This bag is so versatile it will go with my "college wear" and my uniform. 

$88 isn't that expensive for a pair of high-quality Sperrys. I currently own a pair of Sperrys, but they've survived two long years and I'm not sure they can handle a third. For my hospital uniform I have to wear either black shoes or tan ones. Everyone there typically wears Sperry's because they're comfy and cute. (Plus, I can dress them down for everyday wear too!)

This summer I intend on having a summer fling. I'm going to start my college courses, volunteer at the hospital, go to the beach, etc. I have to meet a hot guy- who is also respectful, intelligent, and doesn't smoke pot- somewhere! Right? I don't need to impress him with $500 sandals. I found a pair at Macy's for 1/8 of the price. They'll be great for dressing up outfits for romantic summer dates.

The romper in my Polyvore collage is no longer available at TopShop. It retails for approximately $63. I own one romper. I would love to get my hands on a few more because they're so easy. When my future boyfriend and I go on dates this summer, a solid colored playsuit would look great with a statement necklace. The time will come, I promise you.

Here, Taylor rocks a black romper with white floral detailing. She walks the streets with her signature red lip and yellow pumps. Classic! 

If you guys don't know Juliana Grace, you should definitely check her out. Back in December she did a blog post reviewing Jamberry Nails. She gave them an excellent review. I've seen these nail wraps trending on Pinterest and Instagram. I really want to get my hands on them- especially in Cabana. Mint is my favorite color!

The question is, who doesn't want this bathing suit? It's gorgeous! First off, I love the color. Again, mint is my go to color. I personally think it looks great with my skin tone. Secondly, I love how flattering it looks on the model. It looks like it gives a nice amount of support to the upper half. As for the bottom half, you can choose between the full coverage bottom or the thong for you daring gals!

The only complaint I have about it is the price. $89 for a swimsuit that I'm going to wear at most 3 times this summer is a little ridiculous. Maybe if I had a pool membership like I did in previous years I would splurge. Despite the price, I love it.

What are some of the things you're longing for this summer season?

My Everyday Summer Makeup Routine

Hello everyone! x

As of last Monday at noon, I am officially on Summer Break. It feels absolutely amazing. I will admit these past few days have been rough- the idea of waking up and actually doing something with myself is difficult.

By getting dressed, making a healthy breakfast, and doing my makeup, I feel motivated to accomplish a few things.

Goal: Glowing skin and enhanced eyelashes.

Let's get started!

1. Grab my beauty blender and run it under tap water.
My beauty blender has been my life saver lately. During finals I was way too lazy to get out my brushes. This pink little sponge evenly distributes product and leaves a flawless, dewy finish. I love it! 

2. Apply evenly to skin with Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Foundation
Typically I would go for a BB or CC cream, but I want to finish the tube since it's almost gone. It was fairly expensive too. With any other imperfections I apply my favorite concealer by Neutrogena and blend it out with a mini brush. To complete the face apply your favorite powder.

3. Apply bronzer to the hallows of your cheeks and temples.
I love using bronzer during the summer since I really struggle with getting a tan. I got this blush as a sample when my mom ordered a few things for me around the holiday season. I was highly satisfied with the subtle shimmer the product left on my face.

4. Apply a natural pink colored blush.
I really deepened my skin tone with the bronzer, therefore I wanted to keep it simple with my blush. I chose the shade Natural by Physician's Formula. (I also love the packaging of this product; super cute!)

5. Curl them lashes and apply some mascara!
I still use the same eyelash curler by ELF that I bought in the eighth grade. Yet I didn't start using it until this past year. (I was afraid I would cut off my eyelids.) After that, I applied some mascara by Calvin Klein in the shade One. This mascara darkens my lashes which is something I absolutely love since I don't do a lot to my eyes. I found that a thick second coat lengthens them.

(Remember to get as close as possible to your lash line. It make your lashes appear not only thicker, but fuller.)

6. Lip balm and gloss are musts despite the humidity.
I used my favorite pot of lip balm from LUSH. It really evens out my lips. I then took a sheer gloss from Bath & Body Works to add a little bit of shimmer to my lips.

7. Lock it in.
During the summer my makeup runs right off of my face. The All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray by Urban Decay does just the trick. 4-5 sprays is all it takes to keep my makeup locked for the entire day. I'm currently on my second bottle.

And here is the finished look:

I love this look. It's so easy yet it still gives you that confidence! I wear this look all the time when I'm running errands or attending a driving lesson with my dad.  (I actually did this makeup look just to snapchat my crush- took me less than five minutes!) What are your makeup essentials for summer?
