Hello lovelies! To kick off the official start to summer (yesterday), I wanted to share some of my summer-time favorites. As you all know, I am a summer-time kinda girl, being from Miami and all, so I absolutely love this time of year. I am so excited for this summer especially because I have a lot of blessings and projects. So enough of my blabbing...let's start summer shopping!
The first item I am in love with is this bikini top from Target. Believe it or not, Target is home to some of the cutest swimwear ever! They have great selections for all body types as well which is great. I purchased this top to match with a black bottom I had previously purchased because it is not only very flattering, but also fun with its bright pops of color. Another item that I actually have in my closet that is a total summer essential are theseespadrilles by Splendid. They come in three colors: tan, red, and blue. They are surprisingly comfy too!
The next two items are perfect for those of us who love to lounge...Pool floats are all the rage on Instagram lately, so you don't want to miss out on this photo-op! I am obsessed withthis one because it is a pineapple and this one because nothing quite says diva like floating around on a swan. I wanted to share with you all my latest makeup find as well that won't hurt your wallet, Vivid Matte Liquid lipstick by Maybelline. I am not going to share too many details other than I love it because I have a post on it coming soon (stay tuned!)
You can shop these and my other summer essentials below. Which items are you craving this summer? Share with me below...I hearing from you all.

As always thank you for stopping by the blog and make sure to use lots of SPF! ? XO

Happy Monday! I hope you are sipping on plenty of coffee after your fun weekend. Today on the blog I am excited to share a new workout place I tried along with some of my blogger friends. Ever since I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, in March it has been my goal to maintain a healthy lifestyle (with a few sweets here and there, of course! Haha) So to say I was excited to try pilates would be an understatement. My mom actually takes pilates so I was familiar with it but didn't understand the hype until I attended a Pilates ProWorks class.
Pilates ProWorks is a modern twist on working out with classes like pilates and boxing. My pilates class was definitely challenging, but it was great. I am the queen of complaining about working out, so you could bet that I struggled and wished I was taking a "power nap" versus "powering" through the workout. But I have to say it was an empowering experience! By doing the class I realized I am a lot stronger than I thought. Truth is, I am my toughest critic.
What I love about Pilates ProWorks, other than their amazing Miami-native owner, Summer Christen, is that the classes are fun. Summer taught the class and it was a great workout! It was fun to blow off steam after a long day of classes. Are you ready to work, work work, work (*read that in Rihanna's voice*)? Then take a pilates or boxing class and get your summer body ready! The address and information is below, make sure you let them know I sent you!
I hope you all have an amazing week! And by the way, you deserve that second cup of coffee. Haha! XO
