Easy Tomato and Onion Salad

Quick, fresh, healthy, Paleo, delish....and beautiful!
This easy tomato salad I threw together using yellow and red local grown tomatoes I picked up from a farm in Carroll County.
Basic how to:
1. Start with organic spring mix
2. Top with thickly cut tomato slices
3. Add fresh cut red onions
4. Add sea salt and fresh ground pepper
5. Drizzle lightly with balsamic vinegar

Cheap or Chic? Beyonce's striped dress!

I love this striped dress on Beyoncé!
The exact dress is still available at Nordstrom and pictured below, although it looks like she may have had the sleeves altered to be shorter in length. I like the look either way!
Topshop, Nordstrom $135
 and as promised a cheap version :)
Forever 21 $19.80


White Skirts!

Summer may be officially over, but I just love the look of white skirts! 
 I love that you can dress them up and love them both long and short.
Here are some of my favs for all different seasons:

I found a great French Connection Skirt from Marshalls for a great price! Even though summer is over, I'm thinking of pairing with a black sweater this winter :)

Makeup Brush Storage

How do you store your makeup brushes?
I recently just bought a new set from Smashbox during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (10 brushes total- with lots of free goodies!)
Although it did come in a hard case that doubles as a holder, I'm looking for something that is a little more stylish and goes with my Coastal Décor.
  I want a way to store the bushes and  makes them still easily accessible in the morning when I need them and I think covered or in a cabinet maybe the best option to protect from dust.
I searched online for some creative ways to store the brushes and here are a few creative ways I found:

Maybe I'd use shells or sand to go with my décor

Some sew options- great for on the go!



I really think these wood blocks maybe my fav!

Saying Sunday

Lately I have noticed how many UNHAPPY and JEALOUS people there are in this world!
When I am online and read the comments people post, it's really sad. Most of the time people are bashing people they have never met! Why? I can only guess it's a sad attempt to make themselves feel better. Unfortunately in the end, it's only going to make them feel worse.
My word of YOU and worry about YOU!
Your grass isn't going to get any greener worrying about your neighbors lawn!


Well the sale is over- but I am loving all the items I scored during the recent annual Lilly Pulizer sale! If you have never shopped this sale- it's a must do! Items are DRASTICALLY marked down. Many of the items I got were 75% off original price!

Here's what I got:

Will pair with my Frye Riding Boots this fall.

Loving the button details on the back of this dress!
Love this simple dress!

Already wore this cute dress in Florida Labor Day Weekend

Cute keyhole cutout!
LOVED THIS PRINT! Also bought the same belt!


Labor Day Weekend- Florida!

This past holiday weekend, my husband, dad, and I decided to take a last minute trip to the beautiful beaches in Florida to visit family. It was a quick getaway, but we had a blast! And yes- take the people out of Mt, but we still eat our steamed crabs :) We stayed in Indian Rocks Beach, which is about 30 minutes from Tampa and a few minutes from Clearwater. The sand is white and the water is crystal clear- it really doesn't get much better!
