Aloha, Beaches!


In about three weeks Matthew, my mom, and I will be taking a family trip to Oahu, Hawaii. Not only will this be my first time in Hawaii, but it will also be the first time I see my mom in a year and a half! Yay me!

Being the over-thinker that I am I have been planning this trip for months now >.< lol

Therefore, I will be sharing some of my trip essentials with you guys. Enjoy!

out of office!

1. Rainbow Sandals

I am obsessed with how comfortable Rainbow sandals are (after you break them in of course) && must have a new pair as soon as my old ones are done. For this family trip, I got a pair of Rainbows for myself and I got Matthew his very first pair EVERRRR…& he loves them! 🙂

2. Little America – Mid Volume Backpack

My Herschel Supply Co. backpack has to be my favorite to travel with! I don’t do the whole purse thing, instead I opt for a more practical and roomy option, a backpack! This backpack passes as your personal item on planes (score!), is sturdy, fashion forward (comes in 7 colors)…and did I already mention how much room it has?!

3. Fifteen Belt Bag

So fanny packs are a new thing for me. When I worked at the Boys & Girls Clubs of GG we had to wear a fanny pack to hold first aid items and I HATED it! Few years pass, I get over my fanny pack hate, and realize how practical these are. I don’t know about you but I love to go hiking when I go on vacations. There’s just so much nature to explore! With hiking comes walking, climbing, etc. Therefore sometimes a backpack just isn’t the best choice. Cue, the fanny pack!! This awesome Herschel Supply Co. (notice a brand obsession lol) fanny pack is big enough to hold a phone, snacks (vital), and a few other items. Plus it comes in 6 different colors!

4. Erika Classic 54mm Sunglasses

Ray-Ban sunglasses…need I say more? These are a classic! I love Ray-Ban and this pair in particular is my favorite. The color scheme and lightweight frame, simple yet chic design that you can wear to the beach or with your Sunday best! Add to that the reasonable pricing and you have a winner 🙂

5. Janelle Green Multi Print Flatform Espadrilles

Espadrilles are such a beach staple! These palm tree print are so fun, cute, and comfortable. They basically go with everything: dress, shorts, pants, you name it! ($29)

6. Vince Camuto Paper Fedora

I love a good fedora anytime of the year but beach vacations mean straw fedoras and this Vince Camuto one is just right. My favorite thing about this fedora is that it is not too high so it wont make your head look longer than it is. Plus it is only $19.99!!

7. Pink Haley Alisha Pompom Straw Tote

How fun is this pompom tote?! Perfect for a beach day and ON SALE!

8. ASOS Mix and Match Crinkle Crop Bikini

If you don’t know already, my favorite color is pink! So when I saw this bikini I was thrilled! Hot pink is a color that goes with all skin tones. Add to it that the bottom is high waist and you got yourself a WINNER! Plus this material is so fun and unique.

9. ASOS TALL Plunge Ruched Front Swimsuit

Being 5’7, or taller, means you know the struggle to find a one-piece (or romper for that matter) that fits right. ASOS is great because they carry tall options in a lot of their items. This one piece is such a pretty yellow and covers up what some may consider “problem areas.” The material is very thick, so it keeps everything together and covered up!

10. Akasa Crochet Maxi Beach Caftan

Having a cover up is always a good idea. Specially if you’re going to try and grab a bite before or after sunbathing. This particular cover up is long enough to be appropriate for a sit down restaurant and flowy/thin enough to allow you to dry up fast.

Saranghae 5 Step Routine Review

I’ve never really been a person to have a skin care routine. I would always wash my face in the morning, add face cream when I remembered, and let’s be honest…wouldn’t even remove my makeup before bed sometimes!! *cringes* But then aging happened -_-

So as I started getting older (once I turned 25) I began making sure I took more and more care of my skin. For example, actually removing my makeup before bed. I also started making the time to do face masks…which are my absolute favorite!

This year I turned 27 and realized I had to step up my skin care game; in  particular when it came to my face. So I did a little research, on my dear ol’ friend Instagram, and came across the Saranghae 5 step routine. I quickly decided that these Korean products were the skin routine I’d try!


What are the 5 steps you may ask?

1. Saranghae Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil + Foam Cleanser with Truffle Extract & Gold

2. Saranghae Deep Radiance Essence + Serum

3. Saranghae Firm and Lift Cellular Regeneration Cream

4. Saranghae Focus Renewal Eye Cream

5. Saranghae Elemental Essence Mask

When I first did the routine, I automatically fell in love with the face wash! I mean it has REAL GOLD in it!! The serum made my skin feel so fresh and the regeneration cream made it feel so soft. I’m currently waiting another week or two to report my findings on the renewal eye cream, but so far so good.


What are my favorite things about this routine?

One, the smell! I know that is a weird thing to say but the products smell so good. Two, it is so quick to go through! I know a lot of us avoid a skin care routine due to time, but this takes me less than five minutes to complete. Lastly, my skin in the morning. I no longer wake up with greasy skin. Who doesn’t want that?!


So do I recommend this 5 step routine? ABSOLUTELY! Let yourself feel like a unicorn every time you wash your face with gold. Below is more information in case you’d like to find out more about this awesome skin care product.

Ps. This is puppy approved; just ask Olive!
