Bodysuit, Shorts, Sandals

Booties (tts, so comfy and less than $90)

Bag (a bit of a splurge but will last for years)

Cardigan (so soft and on major sale)

PMD Cleanser (so good for your skin and on major sale!)

S’well Bottle (have this in marble & it keeps my drinks so cold it’s perfect for summer)

The Nordstrom sale has always been a huge hit for years and there’s a good reason why, IT’S SO FREAKING GOOD!!! What I love about the sale is that new Fall season fashion goes on sale which never happens anywhere else. It’s always end of season stuff that goes on sale which is nice but it sets you up for the following year, not for the new season.

This year I got a Nordstrom card so I was able to shop the sale before it opened up today to the public. So much has already sold out and continues to sell out but hopefully if you have your eyes on something you’re able to snag it. My top picks are all still in stock in all sizes so if you want something, run fast and get it before they sell out because these items won’t be restocked until after the sale which means they’ll go back to being full price 😦

Happy Friday & #Nsale Day Babes

Ahh where to begin on recapping just how fun the In N Out Picnic was. Isaac and I arrived early so we were able to do so much before it got more packed with associates and their families. We enjoyed the day and rode fun rides, played bingo and carnival games, ate so much food, and ended off our night by dancing it out 🙂

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!

The $1 Headbands I’m Obsessed With

Shop The Look

Velvet Headband, Mesh Headband

Headbands have been all the rage recently and I’m loving this trend so much. I hate doing my hair so simple hairstyles are my jam! I love that I can just throw on an adorable headband and my hair instantly looks way better. What’s even better is that these headbands are only $1 on Amazon. They are a dupe for the Lele Sadoughi headbands that cost $150. The quality of these is amazing which is surprising especially for the price, shipping is only $1.99 which in total will be $3 which is still way cheaper than other listings for the same headband. Shipping typically takes less than 2 weeks so if you’re patient enough, these would be perfect for you 🙂

Happy Wednesday friends, I’m so sorry there hasn’t been a new post in awhile but I’ve just been super busy and trying to juggle a lot lately. However, today Isaac and I will be attending the In N Out Picnic and we’re so excited. I’ve been watching videos on what it is and I can’t wait to experience it. Thanks to Isaac for taking me as his plus one and the In N Out Corporation for hosting this event

Swimsuit, Kimono, Sandals, Sunglasses, Hair Clips

Pool days are the best days especially in the summer. When I was younger we used to have a pool and we’d use it all year round. However, now we don’t so my pool days are far in between which sucks. Last Monday after the beach, Isaac and I met up with my sister and her family at Paradise Pier Hotel and went swimming with them to end off our day. We had so much fun swimming and to Isaac and I’s realization, it was the first time we had ever swam together 🙂

I’ve been getting so much use out of this $25 swimsuit and I’m obsessed with it. It’s from Amazon and the quality is so freaking good!! I love high waisted swimsuits because I hate when bottoms are low rise and I constantly keep having to pick them up. They have lots of different prints of this suit and the price is so good. 

I paired this cute kimono with it to kinda coverup while walking to the pool and the prints paired up so perfectly. It is from Walmart and comes as a set with a dress but I love it because it can be styled multiple ways. 

Today, Isaac and I will be taking my mom to breakfast to get her out of the house for a bit since shes been stuck at home recovering from her surgery. I cant wait to pig out at brunch lol 🙂

I hope you all have a great week!

Guide To: Newport Beach

9bd43296-eec3-4c62-a8a8-9fb16b2da2cd

Newport Beach has been my go-to destination for years now every time I want a beach day. I love going to Corona Del Mar when I want peace & quiet plus I get to take in the amazing views of all of the beautiful beach houses. However, when I want to walk the boardwalk, I go to Newport Beach Pier. Keep in mind, the pier area is way more crowded  than Corona Del Mar. I’m gonna share some of my favorite spots in Newport down below 🙂

Food

Seaside Donuts Bakery

Nothing is better than indulging in donuts while wearing a bathing suit. This is just your typical donut shop but my favorite part is that they carry cronuts (shown above). Every time I go, I always stop in and pick up half a dozen of these cause they’re just that good!

Woody’s Wharf

If you want to grab dinner at a nice restaurant that has an amazing view, then Woody’s Wharf is a great place to go. The food is so amazing especially the “bang bang shrimp” and the filet mignon with scallops. If you go on a Tuesday, they have an awesome karaoke night. Isaac and I now share a super fun memory about this!

Atomic Creamery

I’m an ice cream fanatic so stopping by here after following their page on Instagram for weeks was a dream come true for me. My favorite is the “Chocolate 2” but oh my gosh they have some other amazing flavors that I’m dying to try! They are located in fashion island so you can go shopping and then treat yourself to a delicious frozen treat.

Things To Do

Renting Bikes

At the pier area there are lots of bike rental places where you can rent bikes, paddle boards, skateboards, and much more. Isaac and I rented a beach cruiser and an electric bike for just $27 for one hour.

Walking

You can ride the bikes down a trail that goes right along some of the most beautiful beach homes including this pink house or you can walk. Either way the views on both sides are amazing.

Relaxing

One of my favorite beach activities is just lounging around soaking up the sun while reading a great book. I love to do this even more when I’m at Corona Del Mar because it’s so peaceful and quiet.

Pictures

Taking pictures is obviously one of my other favorite activities lol. The water is so pretty and blue which makes for the best background.

Overall, Newport Beach is probably one of my favorite places on earth. I can’t recommend this city enough! It would be my dream come true to move there one day. I hope you all found this guide helpful if you’re planning a trip soon to Newport.

Sweater, Shorts, Sandals, Bag, Hair Clips, Sunglasses

Beach days are the best days! I had so much fun spending time at the beach escaping the extreme heat we’ve been dealing with the past few days. I purchased these shorts last month and I love them. I have the green color and the linen material is perfect for these super hot days coming up. This sweater was perfect for throwing over my swimsuit and it had that warm effect but also kept me cool while at the beach.

I’ve been wearing these $10 sandals nonstop lately because the pink shade is adorable and they’re so comfortable! They have them in a few different shades so if you’ve been looking for a nice pair for summer to wear out and about or by the beach, these would be perfect.

I took my all time favorite beach bag with me and packed along my sunglasses and I brought these cute hair clips with me to pin my bangs back. 

Finally it’s the middle of the week and I’m so happy about it! I’ve been so tired since getting home on Monday so I’m looking forward to taking a nap later on today. I hope you all have a great day! P.S. Lots of new content will be coming to the blog soon, including a guide to Newport Beach so stay tuned
