Denim is always going strong, it’s a Classic and something most of us where most often, and for years and years! You can almost always expect to get your money out of purchasing denim. While a lot of us live in our denim jeans and jackets in the winter and fall, sometimes denim gets put to the side come summer.
You don’t have to look far this season to see that Nautical is having a moment. Actually, it always seems to be having a moment every summer. There’s something about warm weather and lovely nautical prints, and the glamorous mix of blue and white.
Chevron stripes are also still going strong, and midi-skirts and dresses (skirts and dresses that hit mid calf) are hot this season too, so I was absolutely in love when I saw this beautiful chevron print midi-dress in nautical blue and white from Charlie Paige. It’s amazingly soft and comfortable too!
I’m actually new to the Charlie Paige fashion line, (you can find them on GiftCraft) but have been nothing short of impressed! Their fashion is completely on-trend, chic, high quality, and yet completely affordable! You can find so many beautiful styles for all sizes and shapes, and for all four seasons! They also have a great line of fashion accessories you absolutely must check out as well!
Speaking of Charlie Paige accessories, I’m completely obsessed with their super chic printed rain boots, especially the Union Jack Boots. But boots aren’t all you’ll find at Charlie Paige! I got to try out a super cute hat, belt, and bracelets as well!
The hat is so fun and playful, and to be honest, I’m not a hat girl at all. I mean, I wear a big wide brim hat in the summer to keep the sun off my face and keep those dreaded sun spots away, but you won’t catch me out and about in a hat. But when this super chic white hat with blue ribbon detail showed up from Charlie Paige, I can’t take it off! This is probably the first time I looked at pictures of myself in a hat and thought, hey that turned out pretty cute! I’m actually kind of obsessing over this hat currently and it’s such a perfect, comfortable, chic hat to wear all summer long!
Remember those fun belts you wore as a kid, where you slide the left buckle into the right side at an angle and it clasps and holds the belt in place. I haven’t worn a belt like this since I was a kid, I haven’t even seen them anywhere else in like 20+ years! But Charlie Paige has got them and I’m completely obsessed. The belt takes two seconds to get in and out of, stretches to fit you perfectly, and you have no annoying strap left over, you have to figure out how to tuck away. I love the cute bright red and how well it goes with the blue and white striped dress too! The belt is incredibly comfortable and stays on fabulously!
Wrap bracelets are all the rage right now, so I was also excited to get four rope wrap bracelets with gold clasps, in red, blue, white, and brown. I don’t always wear clasp bracelets because usually you need someone to help you get in and out of them, right?! These bracelets couldn’t be easier to put on and take off all by yourself. The gold clasps have a slit where you slide one into the other. Takes about 2 seconds to put on and take off! I did notice they can come undone a little easily, but the higher up you wear them on the arm, the better stay on. Plus, you can also clasp them together to make one bracelet or even wear it that way as a necklace! They are a great, completely versatile piece of jewelry!
Bikini Season is finally here! I’m so glad the warm weather has arrived! I’ve waited months and months to get out to the lake, and start playing in the sun and water! Summer is my favorite time of year, and warm weather is something I’d die without! I love the adventure that comes with summer, you never know what is right around the corner!
Which is exactly why I need a great bathing suit I can feel comfortable in, look my best in, and will also be something that can keep up with me and my summer activities!
I’m an avid wakeboarder and have been for many years, so I’m always on the lookout for a bathing suit that is well, going to stay on (believe me, when wake boarding, this can be a problem), and will be comfortable while I ride, so I can worry about my technique instead of my bikini bottom slowly inching up, yikes!
I’ve been a big fan of Hapari bathing suits for awhile now. They offer such a chic variety of all different styles of bathing suits, for all shapes and sizes. You can also find adorable cover-ups too, like this fabulous blue printed skirt I’m wearing below.
When I shopped the Hapari website, I wanted something a little unique, which is why I fell in love immediately with this tie front triangle top in black. I love the cute straps and the fact that you criss cross it in front instead of the back is totally fun and totally ME! I loved the look of it right away and new I would love it. I found some matching black bikini bottoms and a cute cover up (all for under $100!).
When My bikini arrived, I couldn’t wait to try it on! The sizing was perfect, it was a great fit, and what I really loved was how comfortable it was. While I know this bikini will look great for sun bathing, I knew I could wear this on the lake when I’m riding the wake, and it will move with me, stay put, and be comfortable while I ride across the lake.
When I tried out this bikini this last week, I was beyond thrilled. I’ve found my go-to bathing suit this summer! My Hapari bikini looks sexy, feels sexy, keeps up with me, and is so comfortable I can focus on what I’m doing instead of what I’m wearing, or how I look.
Check out My Hapari Bikini and cover up here:
How fun is this cover up and bikini? Fabulous right?! I absolutely love it and know I will be wearing it all summer long, and probably for many more seasons to come! You absolutely can’t beat the comfort level of this bikini. The bottoms are one of the most comfortable bikini bottoms I’ve ever worn in my life! I totally forget they are there when I’m out playing on the lake, because they are such a great fit and stay on nice and snug, but don’t feel tight or uncomfortable in the least!
I’m absolutely adoring my new swimwear from Hapari.com and can’t wait to check out more of their lovely bathing suits in the future! You can get such great, high quality swimsuits and cover-ups at such an amazing price, there is no reason not to stock up on all your favorite summer go-to’s at Hapari this year! Also, check them out if you love a bright colored swimsuit or a cute print. You can also find lots of great bikinis, tankinis, one-pieces, and more at Hapari!
Have a Happy Bikini-wearing Summer!

I don’t know what girl with hair doesn’t love and obsess over finding an amazing flat iron. It’s an absolute must for the modern women, and I’m betting most of us have one in our bathroom.
I’ve tried several flat irons, and there can definitely be a huge difference in irons, especially if you try to save money and go for something cheap. I started out with a cheapie and it basically did nothing at all for my naturally wavy hair. I would get some of the wave out on the top but could never possibly manage straightening out some of the thick wave in the back, bottom half of my head.
I learned a valuable lesson right away, don’t skimp on the flat iron. Otherwise, you’re just throwing your money away! If you think about it, most of us use our flat iron several times a week if not every day, so why not invest in a great iron that will do the job, do it well, leave your hair healthier than when you started, and last you lots and lots of uses!
So how exactly do you know when you are really buying a great iron but not getting ripped off. Most irons will run around $100-$200 so you want to be sure you are really buying the best iron for your hair.
Cheaper irons can have a great risk for burning the hair, and you bet it will dry out your hair and probably leave it frizzier than when you started, at least by the next day. If you use irons often, its definitely worth the investment to buy an iron that will help keep your hair healthy and looking its best.
I recently got to try out the QT Performance Diamond Ceramic Flat Iron from Flat Iron Experts, and after reading the benefits of this iron, I was absolutely ecstatic to try it out!
This iron is super effective at straightening even the toughest of curls, it will eliminate frizz and help seal in moisture. It also has an adjustable temperature so you can find the perfect temperature for your hair texture. Don’t know what that is? This iron comes with a handy little guide that will tell you which setting is best for your hair type.
The Advanced diamond flat iron with ceramic plates is the latest in flat iron technology. The built-in ion generator emits a whopping 5 million negative ions per cubic centimeter, which in turn infuses hair with moisture while taming the frizz. If you don’t know much about negative ions, they actually help leave the scalp and hair healthier, prevents the growth of bacteria and fungi, and will close the hair cuticle.
The Far Infrared heat emission of this iron helps you style your hair quicker and leaves your hair feeling softer and smoother, as well as gives you a shinier finish. The plates deliver even heat distribution to the hair, as well as minimizes pulling, snagging, and sticking to the hair.
I got the 1 inch plates and loved how versatile it was. This size allowed me to straighten, curl, or leave pretty beach waves. I tried all three of them with this iron and absolutely loved the results and how easy it was to get each look. It also has a great 360 swivel cord so it won’t tangle, and the cord is also a great length too so you can move around your bathroom a bit while styling, instead of being confined right next to the outlet.
When I got my iron and used it for the first time, I was completely impressed with how quickly it heated up to temp. About 30 seconds to be exact! I loved that because there were a few times I was ready to walk out the door and then decided last minute to hurry and run my straightener through my hair. My iron was ready to go in seconds and styling was super easy and fast too!
My iron totally lived up the claims! I have super dry frizzy, thick hair and I need a higher temp and a powerful iron, and as I said above, not all of them can do that.
This iron glided through my hair so smoothly. Absolutely no snagging just like they said. Even though I have super long, thick hair, I could straighten the whole thing in about 5-10 minutes. Once I straightened it once, I could wear it out for a day or two afterward without having to even use the iron again. My hair stayed perfectly straightened for 3 days! I just needed to apply a little shine serum on the following days and I was ready to go!
Speaking of shine, that was one of the most exciting things I found using this iron. Because my hair is dry and frizzy, it’s very dull and completely lacking shine. I’ve used a lot of irons that would straighten just fine but not give me shine. This flat iron actually left my hair looking shinier after using it! I probably didn’t even need the shine serum but am so in the habit of using it, I applied it anyway!
I also experienced very limited frizz while using my flat iron too. On days I used it, I had no frizz. On the 2nd and 3rd day, depending on the weather (I live in an already incredibly dry climate and this time of year, mixed with my dry hair, I almost always get some frizz), I experienced a little here and there. Usually when I used my iron to curl my hair or create waves but was surprised by just how little frizz i did get.
I can go on and on about how much I love my new QT Diamond Performance Flat Iron, but you really need to see the before and after pics to see exactly why I love it so much! Check them out here:
The pictures say it all, don’t they? And Look at that shine!
I’m absolutely obsessed with this flat iron and it’s easy to see why! My hair looks great, looks healthier, is quicker, easier, and completely pain-free to style! My QT Performance Diamond Flat Iron leaves my hair healthier then when I started, eliminates frizz and locks in the moisturize and leaves my hair much shinier too! This iron is truly amazing and perfect for all hair types and lengths!I would highly recommend this flat iron to anyone!

Spring is here, and in the fashion world, that means lots of color! Thank goodness! I get sick of the same old drab neutral colors you see all winter, and look forward to seeing bright beautiful colors hit the spring runways.
Pastels are huge for spring, but so are the brights too. My favorite color of all time is teal, and on the rare chance I find something teal in fashion, I’m almost always going to scoop it up! It’s a unique color you won’t normally find in the fashion world, but if you like making a statement, it’s one of the best colors to wear! Blue is appealing to most people, and this bright lovely shade gives it the perfect pop for spring.
I found this gorgeous teal blue vegan leather jacket from Oasap. When I saw it, I was instantly in love. The jacket is so chic and the perfect spring jacket because it’s lightweight but provides just the right amount of warmth for this chilly time of year. Leather jackets are a classic and always on trend. If there is one fashion Item I would suggest everyone own, a leather (preferably vegan) jacket is that item! It never goes out of style and goes with everything! It is one of the most versatile items you can have in your closet, and will most likely become one of your most loved items, thanks to the comfort and style factor you get in this jacket as well!
This jacket also comes with built in shoulder pads which are still completely on trend. I love it because it gives you that look that you are standing taller and straighter, and who of us couldn’t use a little extra of that? Not a fan of blue? This stunning jacket comes in traditional black, or you can find it in a beautiful bright shade of red too!
Check out how I styled my beautiful Blue Vegan Oasap Jacket:
Although leather (or vegan for me) can be a bit more for winter and fall, the bright blue makes it the perfect spring jacket. I channeled my inner Kim Kardashian here, because love her or hate her, the girl knows how to wear and style the leather pencil skirt. I paired my vegan leather pencil skirt with my vegan leather, mesh crop top with my blue jacket. I know, I know, this might be leather overload but I absolutely fell in love with the look as soon as I tried it on. Let me know what you think of it in the comments!
Ready to buy this gorgeous faux leather jacket for yourself? You can pick it up at Oasap.com today! Don’t forget to shop the rest of their fabulous on-trend fashion while you’re there!
