Pastels in the Park:
Classic Ralph Lauren + a $440 Springtime Giveaway

Ralph Lauren, Spring Fashion



I'm such a sucker for pastels. I'm also a sucker for anything pink, so naturally I'm quite fond of this pretty springtime combination. A girl can never go wrong with a classic Ralph Lauren cable knit over her shoulders, and for park play dates, I opt for comfy white Sanuks or boat shoes instead of wedges. 

Full outfit details are at the bottom of this post, as well as a new $440 Paypal cash or e-card of choice giveaway!

Springtime Mood Booster:
Monogrammed Rice Krispie Treats

Rice Krispie Treats, Sweet Treats, Monogram



Everybody needs a little afternoon pick-me-up every now and again! For those of you who weren't blessed with the domestic gene, we have to get a bit more creative when it comes to concocting special treats. Monogrammed rice krispie treats are probably the easiest springtime mood booster you can make for your family and friends. All you need is an 8-count box of Rice Krispie Treats, green and pink icing with decorative tubes, and some cute presentation boxes, all of which can be found at Target.

Now obviously you don't have to use pink and lime green; I just personally love the color combo. Nothing screams, "Be Happy! It's spring" more than this duo.

Decorate as you see fit! A little bit of icing goes a long way on the already delicious rice krispie treats, so try to not overdo the sweetness.

Lastly, find some cute and inexpensive baking boxes, and hand them to your loved one.

To create your own, check your local store snack aisle and look for the bright blue Rice Krispie Treats 8-pack box.

I realize rice krispie recipes can get much more intricate. What do you like to make with this golden sweet treat?


Happy Monday!

Keep Going to the | Savannah | River to Pray:
Pink Flamingos + Navy Short Shorts




River Street in Savannah, GA is one of my all-time favorite waterside strips in the world. It's always a'hustlin' and a'bustlin', and I can't help but soak up all of its southern culture when I'm there. My long-muffled southern accent comes back to life, my relatively clean diet turns  into butter and fried foods only, and I dance with complete strangers-- because that's the Savannah way. 

Since I am a proud Floridian at heart, I had to debut my chiffon flamingo blouse from Goodnight Macaroon to assert my flogrown roots. Paired with navy blue short shorts and tall wedges? I was the epitome of a Savannah springtime bumpkin; one who was unaware that cobblestones and wedges don't work well together. No ankles broken, though, so that's a positive. Full outfit details at the bottom of this post. 












Oh, and if love these Ray-Ban CATS as much as I do, be sure to enter my giveaway here. I've partnered with the Sunglasses Shop to give one of ya'll an identical pair. Ends on April 1st at midnight.











Where are you favorite places to go in gorgeous Savannah? A full trip recap post is on its way. Can I like... just live there? 



Happy Sunday Funday!

Get The Perfect Perfume Touch:
Introducing the Caress Forever Collection

Caress, Caress Forever Collection



Oh, sweet springtime! It may be sad, but one of my favorite things about this season is the release of the best floral and romantic scents of the year. Nothing makes a girl feel more flirty or feminine in a cute ensemble than knowing she literally smells like roses. I was intrigued the first time I saw a commercial for an alleged body wash infused with Fragrance Touch Technology, but I'm glad I didn't let my skepticism stop me... cause I'm so in love with the Caress Forever Collection at Walmart. The Caress® Forever Collection uses Fragrance Release Pearls™, which are teeny tiny invisible beads found within the body wash to release bursts of perfume every time you touch your skin for up to 12 hours. Essentially, you can leave a lasting aromatic impression throughout the entire day.


The Caress® Forever Collection has two great body wash fragrances, Caress® Love Forever™, which has spicy floral sweetness, and Caress® Adore Forever, which has a rich floral scent. I've tried both, and I love them equally, although Love Forever™ is currently in my shower. 



Caress, Caress Love Forever Collection



Spicy floral sweetness? Yes, please! Perfect assurance you'll feel girly and confident during park play dates in the middle of a 90s Florida heat wave.

Stay Fit to Play:
Be a Confident Sexpot All Month Long

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #FitToPlay #CollectiveBias

Sexpot Swimwear



I live in Central Florida, and since our four-day period of spring quickly transitions into full-fledged summer, I've got to feel confident in a bathing suit from approximately February through November. Since I'm a swimmer who loves to work out outside, feeling comfortable and confident that all potential of horrific feminine "mishaps" will be mitigated, especially during my time of the month, is essential. The fact is that periods should never inhibit you from engaging in your routine active lifestyle, but I'll admit, relying the wrong products may change your mind a time or two.

On this particularly glorious beach day, my bff S, who has returned temporarily from Washington DC, and I spent the entire morning and afternoon indulging in all the wonders New Smyrna Beach has to offer.  I donned my favorite new Sexpot Swimwear Crawford suit in gorgeous SeaSick Green (details at the bottom of this post) and opted for a jog, some swimming, and {per princess S' request} a whole lot of jumping around. Thank you Lord I picked up a new combo pack Playtex® Sport® at Walmart a few days prior... cause this teeny bikini could've turned awko and ugly real quick. Playtex® Sport® literally has you completely covered with their new Ultra-Thin Pads with Wings and Body Shape Panty Liners, as well as new combo packs of tampons/pads or tampons/liners. They make your "situation" leak-proof, and they're a lifesaver in any gym, school, or beach bag. 

Oh, and now for an entertaining mirage of photos of me attempting to exercise at the beach with S laughing and pointing a camera at me the entire time. At least the swimsuit and beach look good. Enjoy:







Sexpot Swimwear

Sexpot Swimwear



NEW! Playtex® Sport® now available in Pads, Liners and Combo Packs at Walmart! Now Sport Level Protection™ pads, liners and combo packs with Flexfit™ design to twist and turn with your body. Don't let your period get in the way. Play On! PLUS, these combo packs are a pretty darn good value, and they're available in both 48 counts and 32 counts. So... ya! If you haven't tested these out, I highly recommend giving 'em a go! 

Where should you look? Head to the Walmart healthy and beauty section. Anytime during the month of March, you'll see the products colorfully displayed on an aisle end-cap like below. During April and ongoing, they'll be located in the feminine care aisle.

So how do you stay confident during that very fun time of the month? Do you shy away from exercise altogether? I know I used to!



Happy Friday!
