The kick off to Summer 17 couldn't have been any better. Last Thursday I headed to the big apple with my bestie Jill and the Revolve fam! After a long red eye flight we checked into the Knickerbocker hotel right in the heart of times square! Highly recommended hotel , insanely cute and trendy! We headed out for the night for the FWRD Man event where we danced the night away to endless amounts of throwback and even Cameron preformed!

The next morning we departed for the Hamptons , man the traffic in NYC is insane. We did however make a necessary pit stop at shake shack though - which held us back a bit. 

After a long 6 hours we ended up in Bridgehampton . The Two houses were absolutely incredible they were enormous and brand new not to mention every corner was an instagram photo opp!

The team welcomed us to an incredible dinner cooked by the amazing chef that they hired for the weekend featuring The L'Acadime Brand. Shortly after dinner we changed into our Pjs and gathered into the family room for a very professional organized game night that consisted of Sculptionary, charades and Family Fued. I was definitely on the loosing teams each time ! lol

We woke up bright and early Saturday morning for a session of yoga on the tennis court featuring Adidas x Stella Mcartney. We definitely did alot of shooting in between.  form about 1-4 the team set up the cutest lunch outside where we shopped some really cute brands !

We spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and shooting photos by the pool. We were going to head into town, but because we had such a big night ahead we just ordered in !

The revolve club was set up so perfectly inside the the basement of the house and hosted by One Oak! All of the babes were dressed up in H.ours and we danced the night away with endless amounts of tequila. oh and the best party of the night was when we jumped into the pool in all of our clothing! 

Sunday was not easy for me. the hangover was definitely real! We headed to Montauk for a beach day in Lovers + Friends. 

Thank you so much Revolve for an epic weekend that I will never forget !

Farfetch Summer Soiree

The Rosy Oyster

Wow where has the year gone? July has come a heck of a lot sooner than expected! 

What greater way to bring in the summer season than exploring beautiful Los Angeles with Farfetch.  For those of you who don't know Farfetch is an amazing online luxury retailer you must absolutely check out!

We started the day off right ... Shopping ! Loit is a brand new clothing boutique that just opened up Downtown LA filled with designers pieces to die for ! I snagged these amazing Isabel Marant platform sandals that I will be rocking all summer long in Europe!

Second stop of the day was The Rosy oyster at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel. a cute little restaurant tucked away at the back of the hotel near the pool area. I was taken back at how Instagram worthy this place was! we snapped a bunch of photos while snacking on the freshest seafood you could ever taste, and oh ! not to mention we got our ears pierced . Extremely terrified , but was supper happy how it turned out !

Following the hotel we visited the Marciano Art Foundation for a private viewing of the gallery. For those of you who are into Art, there some impeccable of one - of -a -kind pieces that are just extremely captivating to the eye.

Last but not leas we finished the night off  at the one and only Mama Shelter Hotel. What an amazing evening spent with some of my best blogger friends. Epic sunsets, live music, delicious foods and laughter throughout! 

Thank you Farfetch for a one of a kind day !

The Best Beaches I Have Ever Seen

posted on: Monday, June 5, 2017

Summer is here and if you haven't yet - it's seriously time to plan your vacation!

I am currently planning my Europe trip right now and I am so so excited - London , Barcelona , Ibiza, Mykonos and Croatia are on the list!

There's many places and cities to explore but nothing beats paradise beaches that will make your summer 2017 truly unforgettable. In the past years I have been blessed to have made these experiences and I am excited to share them with you!

1. Varadero, Cuba

Varadero is the largest resort in the Caribbean, it is truly impressive with over 60 hotels and a 20 km long Hicacos peninsula. It is also only a 2 hour drive to Havana, the colorful home of vintage cars and cigars.

2. Isla Baru, Colombia

Isla Baru is the kind of landscape you want to put on as your screensaver: The water is a light bright turquoise, the sky is blue and the sand is warm and white. It's pure paradise and I can't wait to go back!

3. Positano Beach, Italy

Positano is an enchanting cliffside village, a true dream place with its pastel colored houses.
It is also a great base for exploring Italy, only a boat travel away from Capri, Ischia and the Grotta dello Smeraldo cave.

4. Maya Bay, Ko Phi Phi, Thailand

The beaches of Thailand demonstrate the tropical paradises of the far east.
Maya Bay is the stunning beach cove that served as the setting of the film The Beach.
It is by no means unchartered territory or secluded and great to make new friends from all over the world.

5. Formentera, Ibiza

Formentera is the smallest of Spain's Balearic islands and a true getaway. It is reachable by ferry from Ibiza and is great for a day-trip in the summertime.

My 5 Denim Must-Haves

posted on: Friday, May 12, 2017

Denim easily makes any outfit ten times better. It adds this kind of cool, laid back vibe to shirts and dresses. It tones down and styles up at the same time! As long as you don't go head-to-toe denim, iconic Britney and Justin AMAs 2001, you can't really do much wrong! I  LIVE in denim if you haven't noticed ;)

Stylish Swim for Summer 2017

posted on: Thursday, May 4, 2017

Temperatures are rising and swimwear season is nearing - Ladies, bronze your legs in daring high waist silhouettes and cheeky cutout one-pieces! I love adding scarves, cute hats and jewellery to my swimwear and varying my cover-ups with t-shirts and dresses. These are my favorite swimwear trends for 2017:

High-Waist Bikini

High-waisted bikini bottoms are a real triple threat: They are stylish, give you long, sexy legs and are pretty good at hiding that food baby too. This season's two-pieces spice it up with geometric prints and mesh cut outs.

1. Mara Hoffman High Waist Triangle Top and Bottom
2. Kore Swim Eos Bikini Top and Bottom
3. Tularosa Elias Top and Bottom

One Pieces

Deemed by some as the more tame sister of the bikini, a one piece can be sexier and more sophisticated than a two piece with high legs, cut outs and thrilling prints! I am obsessed with One pieces :)

Accessorize it

One small accessory can add huge style to your swimsuit. I love adding a scarf for more chic and cute cover ups and hats for both style and functionality!
