First and foremost I want to give a shoutout to my fellow college students, we did! We are officially on winter break (where's the confetti cannon emoji?) Enjoy your winter break--trust me we deserve it!
Today's blog post is one of my favorites because I am excited to share with you all my most important travel necessity...my Vera Bradley travel bag. I love to travel. I may not have traveled very far yet, but trust me it is on the list! I have gone on cruises, road-trips, trains...you name it, so you can say I am a pretty "experienced" traveler. I have never found a bag that has as many compartments, great quality, and cute all at the same time until I discovered my Vera Bradley travel bag. As you all know (and my friends and family will account for) I am a p̶i̶c̶k̶y̶ selective person, especially when it comes to how I travel. I am not a light-packer under any circumstances but my friends/family always give me a limit, so I end up shoving things in, but now I don't with my Vera Bradley bag--it fits everything and more neatly! I also love all the compartments it has--everything has a place in it.
The travel bags are also very comfy! My bag is versatile. I can carry it in three ways. The first way (not pictured) is by using the opening on the backside to slip onto my suitcase handle for easy traveling, the second one is by the handles which a sturdy so it is easy to carry even with a heavy load, and the third way is by the adjustable shoulder strap which makes lugging your bag through a crowded airport easier than ever! (I know can this bag get any better!?) One of the things I love not only about this Vera Bradley overall is their vibrant prints. The colors are just pop off the bag and really make a statement. There designs just bring a smile to your face! Not to mention, their bright prints make identifying your bag at baggage claim way easier! Which in itself is a blessing, since no one ever can find their bag in a timely manner at the baggage claim...we've all been there.
Vera Bradley is all about being a "girl's best friend" and they certainly are. Not to mention their travel-bags certainly make traveling more fun. Now, with the holidays coming up, and winter break just beginning, now is the time to get a travel-bag from Vera Bradley. Thanks for reading, I wish you merry and safe travels this holiday season! XO

It is almost Christmas time! My family has many Christmas time traditions, but the annual Christmas card is one of my absolute favorites. I love receiving and sharing Christmas cards with friends and family. I am always on the go and busy with everything that it is nice during the holidays to receive cards and images of all my loved ones to see how everyone is doing. It is the best way to keep in-touch with those who we may not be as close with as well. I love being able to see my long-distance cousins too and how much my family is growing/changing since I don't always get to see them.
Today on the blog I wanted to share with you a beautiful Christmas card designed by one of my all-time favorite stationary designers- Simply Ashley Nicole! On top of being such a sweet person, she is also an incredible designer. Oh, and she has a pretty cool name too (haha!) Ashley produces custom-made cards that will satisfy any of your holiday/event needs. From Christmas cards to birth announcements, Ashley does it all! One thing I can honestly say is that Ashley is very easy to work with. When it comes to this industry there are a lot of mass-production companies and small businesses (like Simply Ashley Nicole) that are not focused on adding the personal touch and just look at it like another card. That is why I loved working with Ashley! Ashley is focused on creating a creative, exciting card while at the same time adding your personal touch to it. Every card of hers is designed to meet the customer. Whether it is changing the colors or the message, Ashley is willing to make your card a one-of-a-kind and leave you 100% satisfied. I shared my card that she designed with me and my family above (isn't it beautiful?)
I recommend Ashley to everyone in search of a card. Whether the card be for a birth announcement, invitation, or a holiday card Simply Ashley Nicole is the way to go. It's simple: get personal cards, with great customer care, and 100% satisfaction....Just go Simply Ashley Nicole.

Well hello Tuesday! I am very excited to share today's blog post with you all. Today on the blog I am sharing an inside look at the Blogger Brunch that I attended this Sunday at Madewell in Merrick Park. I had an amazing morning sipping, eating, and of course, styling with my fellow fashion bloggers. Before I continue I want to give a quick shoutout to Paola/South Florida Bloggers for helping make this brunch lots of fun and a major success. While at the brunch, my fellow bloggers and I put together our own looks using the pieces found in Madewell. There are so many amazing pieces from clothes to shoes that it was hard to just create one outfit.
I am a new fan of Madewell (well actually I am a new MEGA fan). I love that Madewell has such simple, clean, and classic items. All of Madewell's items are created with love and quality. One of my favorite parts about Madewell is how comfy everything is. Their shirts are so soft and cozy--even the jean ones which as we all know is very rare. I loved every item I picked up or tried on. On top of having comfy, classic clothing, they also have an amazing line of shoes. From fringe sneakers to the cutest booties, any shoe you can dream of they have. Not to mention the shoes are excellent quality and comfortable. I also love the accessories from Madewell. They have retro sunnies and jewelry that you'll drool over (I'm especially obsessed with the necklace I styled). One of my favorite features? They monogram! You can get one of their amazing leather bags with your monogram (how great is that!?)
I deeply encourage you to follow me on the Madewell bandwagon (you surely won't regret it!) Below in 'SHOP THE POST', you can shop the look I styled as well as some other favorites of mine via Madewell. Have I sold you yet on Madewell? Make sure you shop the blog now for these Madewell items! If you visit the store in Merrick Park (it is beautiful!) make sure you tell them Ashley from It's a PAshion sent you! Thank you for stopping by the blog this morning and have an incredible Tuesday. XO

With the new year around the corner, I have been thinking about my goals and new year resolutions for 2016. One of the items on my list is to take the blog to a whole new level and make it the best it can be. My goal has always been to be a successful woman in life. Part of being a successful woman in the business force is to dress the part, which is why I am excited to share with you eShakti. I styled my look today very classy and business appropriate. For those of you unfamiliar with eShakti, it is women's clothing line tailored just for you!
eShakti creates beautiful pieces from dresses, jackets, and more--all to your measurements. Say goodbye to struggling to find clothing-pieces in your size! With eShakti all you do is choose your piece or pieces and enter your measurements. One of my favorite parts about eShakti is that their pieces are made of high-quality fabrics for great prices. Usually when you go to buy a tailored item, you end up paying ridiculous prices and usually the fabrics are not even to parr. With eShakti you get the best of all worlds: quality, price, and style!
I love my dress by eShakti, to say the least. It is comfortable and looks great on. I recently wore it to give a speech/presentation and can't even begin to tell you how much everyone loved it. They loved it even more when I told them the prices. It is a win-win! They have a great selection too. From work-looks to party pieces. With Christmas right around the corner, now is the perfect time to clean out your closet and get your measurements down so you can order your custom-piece! To learn more about eShakti visit them on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
Ready to look at customization in a whole new way? Thank you for stopping by the blog on these rainy Tuesday. Have a great afternoon!! XO
