S U N D A N C E, UTAH

Photographer : @islandboyphotos

My life is an ongoing adventure. I am never in one place for very long and I’m always finding new magical places. I’ve lived in Utah on and off but we have been there a year solid now and I had never been on the ski lift.

If you haven’t been to Sundance … you are missing out. Sundance is such an amazing and breathtaking place. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to be living so close to it. One crazy thing about me though is that I have never been skiing!! I live in freaking Utah and I have never been hahah. That’s my goal this winter, to learn to Skii.

What goals do you have for winter?!

My goals are

1. Get in the best shape I can…for a beach vacation in February

2. Learn to Ski

3. Keep up with the gallon water challenge

4. Read a book each month

5. Train for another half marathon

Although my life is partially glamorous …. I miss my husband so much and it’s extremely hard to be gone from him. This job has helped me to appreciate all the little things in life. I get so excited just to eat a meal with him and watch tv. When I was home…it was just a normal thing to do and now I look forward to it. Appreciate the things you would miss, if you didn’t see the people you love as much.

Who else is pumped for Christmas!!!!???? I have been running around doing my last minute shopping and I’m getting so excited. I can’t wait to spend quality time with family and drink hot chocolate.  

Speaking of crazy madhouse shopping ..   I wore this cute top yesterday and got sooo many compliments/questions asking where I got it.  It has the cutest elbow pads and is as soft as a baby (kidding) but really it’s so soft.  I love that it is a high low shirt and I have been looking for a good olive shirt, so I was excited when I found olive with stripes!!!

If you have been wanting to get your Dad, Husband, Boyfriend, Brother…or any guy in your life something AWESOME for the holidays … go no further than this shirt… it’s the BOMB. I couldn’t stop giving Michael googly eyes all day. I love the contrast of the blue and the small floral.

My hubby competes in triathlons so this Garmin watch has been super helpful in his training. It’s a GPS watch so it tracks pretty much everything he does (swimming, biking, running), gives him all the details he needs to know on his workouts and has a heart rate monitor.

Finding the perfect fit with ThirdLove 





Lace Full Coverage Bra // Lovely Lace Cheeky      C/O – ThirdLove 

  I have struggled the past few years trying to find a brand and bra that fits comfortably and has full coverage.  Let me tell you …. it has been rough!! I have had some shoulder and back problems and always feel like I am readjusting my straps and bra to relieve my back pain. 

    This is the first bra ever that I don’t even think about my back throughout the day. The straps are very supportive and the cups are super flattering and actually lay flat and look smooth under my clothes.  

  My favorite bra is Full Lace Coverage  and the matching panties Lovely Lace Cheeky are adorable!!! This bra has amazing coverage and is extremely soft.  I have been wearing it everyday and I even get excited to put it on in the morning 🙂 
  Third love has a Fit Finder to help find your perfect bra! You take a questionnaire on ThirdLove that will suggest your best fit from their 24/7 Collection. There is a bra for everyone!!! 
  I love that you are able to try before you buy and you can return within 30 days even after wearing and washing it?! How amazing is that? 
You will initially be charged for shipping and then if you decide to keep the bra they will charge you ! 

  It’s nice being able to try the bras in my everyday life and see what best suits me 🙂 

   A few other styles I am excited to try are  Strappy T-Shirt Bra, Lace Balconette Bra, and Classic T-Shirt Bra

Try it … I promise you won’t regret it 🙂 

Fall Contrast…

Hello Lovies, Hoping your week was as joyful as mine 🙂 Just wanted to clue you in on some awesome fall deals that I found and give you an update on our next vacation. SO I bought these velvet burgundy jeans at Costco this week and I am IN LOVE. They were only $20 and unbelievably soft!!! I want a pair in every color. Also my booties are only $32 — they are my favorite pair of shoes right now and go with everything.

Fall is coming to an end and I am so sad! I can’t believe snow will be arriving soon….             I loved being able to walk around yesterday and look at all the beautiful trees changing colors and actually enjoy what Fall feels like. Growing up in Florida, the only season you have is summer and semi-summer. I found this neat wall in Provo and HAD to stop and snap some pics.

Lately I have been preparing and researching for my upcoming trip to Cost Rica and could not be more excited. I can’t wait to try all the yummy places to eat, beaches to lay on, and fun adventures to explore. The only thing I am a little worried about is that it is rainy season — well it technically ends mid November, so we are crossing our fingers it will be over by the time we arrive. We will be flying into San Jose, and staying with my second cousin. I am tempted to take a surfing lesson while I am there!! I don’t have the best balance but I think it would be so fun. I am so happy that right as it turns cold here we will be headed to the beach. If any of you have recommendations LET ME KNOW:) ?

Thanks for reading and I’m serious about those jeans … they are amazing!!!

Bell sleeves and some flare jeans!

These past few days have been absolutely crazy, fun, and exciting! I was able to throw my best friends shower here in Utah with a few other friends. It turned out so beautiful and was perfect for her. I will be sharing the blog post later this week on her shower and some fun DIY project I did for it. I was also able to go to Cornbellies again with our group of close friends and we had an absolute blast. Then yesterday I was able to go to park city and spend some time with my best friend and her hubby before they headed back to Florida. I cant believe that the next time I see her she will have a baby!!! Super exciting 🙂

Hi Rise Flare Jeans

 Lace cut out bell sleeve C/O Amethyst and Opal

 Wedge Sandal Old but similar

Lipsense — Bella in Matte   C/O Calli  (I am obsessed with this stuff — it literally lasts all day)

You can order lipsense through the link above. I have never had lipstick that last so long and doesn’t need reapplying. I put it on at 10 am and it literally lasted until about 10-11 at night and all I did was reapply gloss 1 time after I ate. There are so many beautiful colors and it has helped to moisture my lips so much! SO grateful my friend Calli introduced me to it.

Now to talk about this rocking outfit!! First things first let me tell you that each piece of this outfit is under $40!!! I am absolutely in love with Bell sleeves right now especially ones with lace and detail. This blouse has become one of my fall statement pieces and goes with everything. I love that you can dress is up or down. You can shop more of Amethyst and Opals ADORABLE clothes HERE. They have so many cute and affordable options!

Flare jeans —- The 90’s baby in me is coming out. I am so happy that these jeans are coming back in. These are my favorite pair and I found them at the Nordstrom rack sale this year. Luckily right now I found a similar pair for under $35 dollars. They are the most flattering and comfortable jeans I own.

New job… new watch… and a Giveaway!!
