My Hamptons Getaway

Sometimes all you need is a quick little vacay to whisk you away from your troubles and to refresh your mind!

I did just that! One of my best friends, Danielle, has a house near the bay in beautiful East Hampton, New York. She and I stayed with her grandma in an adorable four bedroom house with a pool and all! I had such a wonderful time there; I stayed for three days and two nights (which was a little short but just enough!)

I was living the care free life! We swam in the bay, tanned at the beach, shopped in all of the boutiques, and went out for dinner and ice cream. The best part of it all was to be able to do it all with my best friend. I really had an amazing time and i don’t think I’ll ever forget it!

Danielle and I walked to the bay that’s right near her grandma’s house! It was so warm and breezy and the water was cool and calm, just perfect! I have never been anywhere like it! (Both pieces of my bathing suit are from Target!)
We took this pic when we were out shopping in the stylish South Hampton! We were playing dress up in LF (one of my fav stores!) and we found these crazy outfits! Danielle is wearing a wild studded tie dye demin jacket and I’m wearing a sequin cocktail dress! Check out our Jeffrey Campbell shoes too!! We love them!!
On one of the  nicer days I was in East Hampton, we went to this spectacular beach called Indian Wells and it was such a clean and private  beach. There were only a few other beach go-ers! It was so calm and quiet (besides the strong rip tides!!) We took the opportunity to get some sun and take some pictures!
In other news….. I took my road test on Friday and I passed! I am now an official licensed driver!! Watch out for me cruising down the street!  xoxo

All Packed Up!

Hey Girlies! Ever wondered what to pack and what not to? Me too. And to be honest, I haven’t yet figured out the best to pack. Usually in situations when I’m going on vacation and I need to pack I either 1. not pack nearly enough stuff and always forget important things or 2. pack an excessive amount of stuff in a big, heavy bag and have everything I need. I really don’t know which option is better.

Today I had this problem because tomorrow morning my best friend and I are going to the Hamptons for the next few days! We are going to take a coach bus out there and stay at her granny’s house, how fun right?! I was utterly conflicted whether to bring a smaller bag and risk forgetting the essentials or to bring an elephantine bag which would carry excess stuff.

I chose to bring my (big) Betsey Johnson carrier which pretty much a very large, very stylish duffle bag. It is filled to the brim with bright bikinis, short shorts, and crop tops, just what everyone needs on their vacay! I’m triple checking everything to make I don’t forget anything for my trip because last time I forgot my brush, YIKES.

Also, in preparation for my sweet getaway, I did my own mani-pedi today! In case any of you were wondering… I used Minted by Revlon on my fingers for that effortless chic-ness and Let’s Talk by Sinful Colors on my toes for a little pop of sass.

Lastly, as some of you may know, my family and I went to see Pat Benatar in concert last night at the Six Flags Great Adventure in New Jersey! I must say, she’s still got it. Pat is 59 years old and she still belts out some high notes and busts some moves! She is quite a legend and a true talent!

I hope you all have fun the this week! I’ll post when I get home ( :

Everyone’s Leaving!

Hey! So lately I’ve been pretty busy trying to get together with all of my friends who are leaving to go to camp or go on vacation! This is probably the saddest part of summer because all of the friendships that I’ve made throughout the year (and all of my existing friendships) have to be put on hold because people are visiting family overseas, going to summer camp, or just going on a long vacation.

Nowadays, it’s easier to communicate with people who are far away with texting and whatnot. I’ll def still be in touch with them don’t worry! Sadly, some camps don’t allow cell phones and cell service in other countries is expensive so I’ll be sending those friends some nice letters!

Just the other day I stopped by one of my best friend’s house to help her pack for her SIX WEEK trip to France! It was sad helping her pack up but I know she’ll have loads of fun eating croissants and speaking French! She promised me that we will hang out when she gets home in August!

Also, yesterday another one of my friends came to my house because she is leaving on Saturday to go to Florida for three weeks! I’m really going to miss her because she is one of my go-to girls! We were going to spend some time outside but it was raining cats-and-dogs! There was non-stop thunder and lightning for hours SO I’m hoping we can go to the beach one last time before she leaves!

I know I’ll miss all of my friends who are going away and I’ll definitely keep in touch! Don’t worry though, I have a lot of friends that are staying here with me so I won’t be all alone after everyone is gone! Hope everyone is having a great summer! xoxo
