Recently I got to spend a week in my former home of Los Angeles for the first time since moving. I was SO happy to be back and have already planned another trip at the end of this month. Special shoutout to Hotel Figueroa and Discover LA for collaborating with me on this trip, along with my amazing management team, Matter Media Group. 

Hotel Figueroa is right next to LA Live in Downtown LA, during my 2 years out in LA I never really got to explore DTLA except for nights out with my friends so I was excited to have that time there! The hotel is my aesthetic AF. The rooms were amazing, the drinks at the bar were amazing, the decor was EVERYTHING, but mainly the pool is where my heart was. Such a beautiful pool and poolside bar, definitely check it out next time you're in DTLA!

I'll be working on a post about my favorite restaurants and things to do in Los Angeles since theres obviously more than just what I did on this trip considering I was there for work. A week in LA wasn't enough to round up everything I want to talk tot you guys about this city so be on the lookout in the next month for that!

Anyway, here are my outfits from the trip!

First I had the opportunity to shoot some outfits in the Art District with photographer Naohmi Monroe and Creative Director

Then Cody came to town and I was able to have him assist me in all the rest of the pictures. 

We went to the Urban Outfitters in DTLA to shoot this outfit outside the movie theater looking front. I love a good movie theater shot.

Next up we ended up in Venice Beach. I had only been to Venice two times before (I know, pathetic but in my defense I would usually go to Santa Monica or Manhattan Beach. Hollywood is relatively far when traffic is factored into the commute so I wasn't a regular at the beach when I lived out in LA.)

The following day I had meetings later in the afternoon in West Hollywood so I got to take Cody to Melrose, he enjoyed all the shoe stores along the streets. Boys. I was just excited to be near a Reformation. This wall where I took these pictures can be found on Melrose really close to the vintage Reformation store.

While on Melrose I picked up this set from Reformation that I wore to dinner that night with Discover LA & Matter Media Group. As you can see, I wore it the next day too. Saturday was our 
free day so we explored Silver Lake and Echo Park.

Then we picked up my dear friend Jill and headed to Silver Lake flea for the evening then to dinner. Obviously had to get some pictures with my friend Jill on the infamous Silver Lake Stairs.

That's a wrap folks!


I'm back with another Amazon monthly post, my personal favorite! Y'all know I am addicted to Amazon Prime, no secret here, so I am rounding up all the purchases I've made in June and July on Amazon Prime. Be sure to check out my Amazon shop page for everything else under the sun.

1. Sunglass Chain Strap

I went to a music festival called Panorama in NYC this weekend and oh how this chain came in handy! Not only is it super fashion forward, kinda hate myself for saying that, but it's also very practical. With my tape in extensions I can't wear my sunglasses on top of my head like I use to, so it was nice being able to have my sunglasses hanging from around my neck. Plus it's only $7.


2. Shopping Bag

I actually love this bag. It looks so little and pathetic when it comes in the mail but it's so useful! I squish it into a little ball & carry it around in my bag when I go shopping. I brought it with me to both flea markets I've been to in the last month. Definitely worth the $8 pricetag. And it's cute. Win-win.


3. Mini Furry Rugs

I put these on my peacock chairs, they are $15 each. Unfortunately they don't have them at IKEA for super cheap anymore. RIP the dream.

4. My Wildfox obsession continues...

As many of you guys know, I live in my Wildfox clothes. Seriously. I can't think of anything more comfortable than my Wildfox sets. Best part is you can get them on Prime now too!

5. Planter Hanger

I can't believe this was only $20, a literal steal. I have this hanging in my office right now and it brings me so much joy! It's such a statement so keep that in mind when you order it, it's definitely not like any normal plant hanger, it's a cool plant hanger.


6. Mini books for my shelves

Some of you may know this but I am such a nonfiction book nerd. I've read one fiction book in the past 3 years... one. Fiction is a waste of time to me, I want to be learning stuff so ever since I was young, I've gravitated towards nonfiction books. So these mini books are more than just decoration, I actually read them and reference them when I am identifying my plants. I've seen this mini cactus book everywhere, so on Amazon Prime Day I knew I had to swoop it.

I also got this "How to Not Kill Your Houseplants" book, it's also super helpful! If you're just getting into houseplants, definitely look into this book. Or just google. I don't know, I like having this around!


7. Jumpsuit

Faithfull the Brand is one of my favorite brands, I've collected a few of their items over the past few years and one of those things was my new jumpsuit. I wore this in LA and adore it. I'm wearing a medium.

8. Lack of Color Spencer Hat

I wore this in New York City this past weekend, I love the size. I think the larger version of this hat is more "Italy or laying by the pool" type hat. I'm wearing it in the first picture on this blog post.


9. Earrings

I bought these Virgin Mary earrings for Panorama but I didn't get them in time, how cute are they though?! They come in so many different colors.

I also needed sterling silver hoops for my new holes, so I also got these ones too.

Guess who's back for another sale post (I promise this is my last one for a while... and hey, atleast it's not another Nordstrom sale post AMIRIGHTLADIES?!)

It's my favorite kind of post to do because I know how much you guys love Show Me Your Mumu. Mumu has continued to be one of my favorite brands of all time and we all thrive off of a 50% of Mumu sale lets be honest here. 

You'll receive 50% off select items (shop here) with the coupon code SUMMERSALE, here's the catch though, this is EARLY ACCESS! Get your items before it's too late.

& yep, the picture above's outfit is 50% off.


I wanted to show you guys the things that I am loving from the sale, maybe make it a little bit easier to shop. I picked up a few accessories and a few basics this sale! What will you be picking up?



They have amazing fall/winter clothes on sale, shop my favorites here. I just swooped this sweater for like $25... steal for such an amazing basic.





I personally love their denim and they have a few styles that I adore on sale 50% with the code SUMMERSALE.





They even have accessories. Last sale I swooped an adorable pair of Steve Madden boots for 50% off and I can't wait for it to get cold again so I can wear them more. They have a few Steve Madden and Dolce Vita pairs on sale this time!




HAPPY SHOPPING!
XOXO.

In the past 24 hours, Revolve has updated their sale section to include so bomb a$$ deals. So many things that I have had in my cart or on my wishlist have gone on sale, so thank goodness for my wallet. Many stores are calling their collections they are putting out "pre-fall" but if you're anything like me, you live in an area where it will be summer weather until at least the beginning of October so I will be utilizing summer clothes way past their expiration date. 

All Revolve's goodies they've added to their sale section are summer goods and I am here to talk to you about them all. I'm rounding up all the things that I have on my list and also all the things that I've already styled on my Instagram or blog that are on sale now! I'm saving you the time, trust me because you'll find yourself 98 pages deep before you realize you've been looking at the sale section for 4 hours... speaking from experience LOL. Shall we?

Another state has officially been checked off my list, Maine! 

I just got back from a trip to Maine with 3 of my beautiful influencer friends and I had the time of my life. A few months ago my friend Alexis asked me if I wanted to go on a trip somewhere we've never been before, she suggested Maine and to be honest, I was indifferent to the idea of visiting there. I had just never really had the desire to visit, but I never pass up an opportunity to explore new places and so I said yes. I remember growing up my Grandma always talked about Maine so why not check it out, ya know? I had just never heard anyone my age really talk about Maine so I think maybe that's why I overlooked it for 24 years of my life. Now if you are like me and never had Maine on your list of places to visit, CHANGE THAT MINDSET RIGHT NOW. Maine is breathtakingly beautiful, unique, full of history & charm and I am going to prove that in this post. 

Before I dive in, I want to share my travel buddies for this trip incase you want to see what they have to say about Maine. I traveled with Alexis Teichmiller, Chelsea Scott and Elanna .


Day 1: Kennebunkport, Maine

Where We Stayed: Yachtsman Marina and Hotel and it was AMAZING. It's a brand new, renovated old motel in walking distance to downtown Kennebunkport and a bike ride away from the beach. The staff was amazing, the happy hour was amazing, the beds were heavenly. Honestly my favorite place we stayed in Maine. I would definitely go back!


Where We Ate: Since we were only in town for dinner and breakfast, I don't have a lot to tell you but I do have to say, we ate well in Kennebunkport.

For dinner we went to The Boathouse, a 5 minute walk from our hotel and it was glorious. We ordered all the appetizers because we were so hungry from traveling all day. My recommendations are definitely do not pass up on the fries, the seasoning is amazing and you have to try their edamame because it has a little punch to it. For dinner I ordered the turkey club, it came with avocado on it so count me in on that. The ambiance is what makes The Boathouse amazing, so if you're visiting be sure to sit outside on the patio that overlooks the Marina. Check out the picture above for our view. It was clearly horrible (sarcasm intended.)

For brunch we went to Salt and Honey downtown right across the street from The Boathouse. I ordered a blueberry pancake and obviously couldn't pass up breakfast potatoes. Maine blueberries are so delicious, I'm so happy I got to try them in my pancake!


What We Did: After getting settled, we took on the town! Kennebunkport has so many cute shops downtown that we couldn't resist checking out. I wish I would have picked up a souvenir from one of the many shops in the area because their selection was amazing. Also there is the cutest pet store downtown, I tried so hard to find the cutest harness for Miller, unfortunately didn't end up getting one!

Next up we checked out the beaches in the area. I haven't seen the ocean in what feels like forever so I was happy to relax for a little bit and get my toes in the sand.

We enjoyed rosé at the Happy Hour at the Yachtsmen, it was one of the more relaxing parts of the trip and probably one of my favorite moments.

After brunch we took pictures and explored the city a little more before headed to Portland for the next adventure.


Day 2: Portland

Where We Stayed: The Holiday Inn, it was just like any other Holiday Inn you've probably ever stayed at. Not much to say here.

Where We Ate: We were so busy on Friday that we didn't even have time to eat lunch but no worries, we had snacks stocked up for us thanks to Chelsea. It's like she knew how much I loved Cheez It's because she had some waiting for me, true love.

For dinner we wanted to stay downtown so we stumbled into Solo Italiano, a delicious, upscale Italian restaurant (no shit.) I got the lasagna, I honestly can't remember what everyone else got, but I do know everyone was happy as a clam with their choices!

Brunch was the greatest brunch I've had in a long time. Originally we stopped by this popular diner in Portland but no one was really feeling it so I found a cafe called Bayside American Cafe on yelp. My mouth is watering as I type this because it was that good. I ordered one pancake (they were huge) with PB & chocolate chips with an order of bacon and potatoes (obviously.) But our table ordered one of their cinnamon roll pancake and holy cow... my life has changed for good. Order that if you go. Both pancakes were delicious but wow the cinnamon roll pancake.


What We Did: We did a lot in Portland. A lot.

We first had the Lucky Catch Lobster Cruise, you know typical Maine things. It was cool, I'm glad we got to do it because when I think of Maine, obviously I think of lobsters. I don't eat seafood but it was still cool to learn the process. The pictures we got were even cooler!

Next up was the Portland Brew Bus. Cody was so jealous of this because he is a big craft beer enthusiast. Honestly it was fun but definitely something I wish Cody was there for because I know it would've made him so happy. Cheesy. Anyway I brought back some beer from Portland for him.

We woke up super early to head to the Portland Head Light before it go too harsh of lighting. 10/10 would recommend going to see this. I love history so hearing it was the first lighthouse in the United States made me so hyped. All the rocks, all the history, all the water, it's amazing.


Day 3: Camden

Where We Stayed: 16 Bay View this place was so fancy and cute! Definitely different than our Holiday Inn the night before!

Where We Ate: We got appetizers because yet again, we didn't eat lunch that day, this time we headed to Sea Dog Brewing Company. It was alright but I tell ya what, the blueberry wheat ale is LIFE. It's so damn good. Try it, get it at a gas station, do whatever you can to get it.

I've never had Thai food before so I was really excited to try something new at the infamous Long Grain. I love spicy spicy food, more than most people. Yes I realize I said spicy twice, I just love really spicy stuff. I don't even remember what I got, it was some type of rice bowl with chicken and I got it the second to hottest heat level. Delicious.

For brunch we went to the brunch hotspot in Camden called Boynton-McKay Food Co. and I just got the banana bread. I wasn't super hungry after all the carbs the night before but this definitely hit the spot.

What We Did: The drive from Portland to Camden took a little longer than expected because we stopped at a photo opp that was the infamous buoy wall that epitomizes Maine in my opinion. I got a lot of questions about where it was, I honestly have no idea. I'm sorry! It was somewhere between the cities though (which definitely doesn't help.)

We did a lot of relaxing and just chatting. Camden was our last stop so we just wanted to chill after the craziness of Portland where we were nonstop from one tour to another. We sat around and recapped our time together, what we learned about each other and just chatted about life. I loved it! I couldn't have asked for a better crew to take on Maine with.

Thank you so much Maine Tourism Board and Visit Maine for collaborating with us on this trip, we had so much fun. Check out my girls, Alexis, Chelsea and Elana too while you're at it!
