Swimwear Guide: Current Favorites

Click on any of the pictures to shop!

Okay, I know its still freezing outside, but I can’t help but shop for Spring, including new swimsuits. Last year was just an odd year for swimsuits. During the Spring, I was at the point where my belly could have easily been mistaken for eating too many chips and salsa [guilty of that anyway]. One day, I just popped [moms, you know what I mean] and then the belly was large and in charge. I didn’t want to spend a lot on swimwear knowing I wouldn’t be able to fit into this Summer, so I opted for Target. Nothing wrong with Target, but I feel anywhere you go, you at least run into another person in the same suit. Any who, all that to say, this year I am SO EXCITED to shop for new swimwear and take my little one to the pool and get her used to the water. Last night, we booked a quick trip to LA, so so I’m already thinking of things I want to bring. Everything [at least the cute items] always sells out by early April, so I’m actually excited to start buying items now.

I thought I’d round up all the pieces I’ve got my eye on along with my favorite cover-ups, and accessories. PLUS, ALL of these items are [I think] under $50! I hate seeing a swimsuit and then see a $200 price tag….aint no one [besides maybe Beyonce] has time for that.

I’d love to hear some of your fav places to shop for swimwear!

Gift Guides Lifestyle


Hey Friends, happy Saturday! Can you believe Christmas is only 9 days away?!

If my parents are anything like yours, here is the typical conversation.

“Me: What do you guys want for Christmas?

Mom/Dad: I don’t know/we don’t need anything/just surprise me”

So typical right?! Well hopefully these help out a little bit! I picked a few items you could gift to both of them and a few for just mom or dad. I also chose retailers who either 1. have order online and store pick up or 2. the items will still arrive by Christmas.

  1. Bose Music System
  2. Ninja Coffee Maker – This is such a steal! Plus, who doesn’t love coffee?!
  3. Men’s UGG Slippers – Seriously the softest slippers ever! My dad LOVES slippers and I love UGG ones because the fur never mats down. I’ve had some of my UGGS for like 5 years and they’re still super soft!
  4. Monogram Slate Tray – This is perfect for appetizers, cheese, cake, cupcakes, and is cute enough to be kept out as decor!
  5. Docking Station
  6. Martha Stewart Robe – I was at the store the other day and felt this robe. Softest. Robe. EVER.
  7. Cutting Board – This is such a great addition to any traditional/county/farmhouse kitchen.
  8. Tag 3 Piece Luggage – Such a perfect gift if your parents travel! The 3 pieces are perfect so they could each have one and the carry on.
