Is this Really New Jersey 😲

Hey my friends!

Let me first put out this disclaimer, I am an island girl…born in St. Croix, USVI. Ok, so I’ve been living in NJ since I was three years old, so some would say I’m more of a Jersey girl (P.S. I completely disagree with that). Anyhow, I say all of that to say that I have spent most of my life so far living in Jersey. And believe or not, until this past week, I have never been to the beaches on the shore. Shocking right???

What was more shocking for me is how pleasantly surprised I was to see how beautiful it actually was. My friend goes to the beach all the time and since I didn’t get to go anywhere this summer due to my surgery and recovery process, she invited me to spend the day at the beach…sort of a staycation. I wasn’t too excited about going at first. For one, I just never had any interest in the jersey shore beaches. If I wanted to go to the beach, I would go to an island. And secondly, I’m just not beach ready. I still have my scar which is very visible and still not completely healed. So I decided, “what the heck, just go.” And I’m glad that I did…

Must Have Sunnies for Summer

Hey Friends and happy first Sunday of summer!

Summer…I have been waiting for you for sooo long. For those of you that live in the NJ/NY area like me, it has been raining as if we live in Seattle. It is so good to see that sun shining bright. With that being said…

I must share with you my must have sunglasses for this summer. I am obsessed with sunglasses. I cannot tell you offhand how many pairs I have. I always get asked why I need so many pairs. My fellow fashionistas out there definitely know the answer to that question!

I am a big fan of Coach sunglasses. I just think the styles they design are just so classic and can wear for years to come. However, this summer 2019 I have been obsessed with the Quay sunglasses line. I wouldn’t quite say that they are classic, but more trendy. I believe I can get away with wearing them for at least another year or two. And before I continue, let me put out my disclosure that this is not a sponsored blog.

Welcome May 😘

New Phototastic Collagemay

Hey my friends!

Happy May…I have to tell you that I have been happy, yet nervous for the month of May to arrive. I am looking forward to a fresh start to a healthier life, but with that you have to go through some physical pain.

For the past few months I have been getting my body healthier and just building up my immune system in preparation for a necessary surgical procedure. Believe me, I am not looking forward to the pain that is going to come with this procedure. With that being said, once the pain is over, I cannot wait to enjoy a normal life and focus on accomplishing all the goals on my to do list.

Can you believe I bought all these for under $50???

Hey my friends!

So I went shopping yesterday at Sally Beauty Supply and was plenty surprised to find out all of their haircare products are all sale this week at 25% off. I was like a kid in a candy shop because I had a member discount for 20% off when I spend $50. So to find I would get even more savings…ohhh man!
