My Weekend Lookbook: July 26-27, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. Sometimes you just need to have a lazy afternoon, and Saturday afternoon was just that.

Phone Case / Ear Buds

Photo 2. Last Friday I did a whole post on Watermelon Mojitos, and well, I officially tested out the recipe! DELISH! You need to make this happen for yourself ASAP!

Photo 3. I whipped up a little homemade banana pudding on Saturday for a BBQ, and I had completely forgotten about how good banana pudding is. Oh my gosh, it was so stinking hard not to eat the whole thing before I brought it to the actual BBQ. So, I did what any sane person would do: I made myself a little personal banana pudding parfait! SO GOOD.

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

Photo 1. On Saturday morning, I had a bit of extra time, so I gave myself a little manicure. Doesn’t this photo look dreamy? Before you get jealous… what you can’t see in this photo is the dark green mud mask I was also wearing! Ha!

Photo 2. Oh my gosh, you should have seen my back yard. It was literally like a horror movie. Seriously. There were weeds everywhere!! So, I took matters in to my own (manicured) hands, and loaded up at Home Depot on only the pinkest of flowers. Here’s to hoping that the Florida sun doesn’t phase these beauties!

P.S. Don’t worry… I wore gloves!

Photo 3. After said yard work fiasco of 2014, I thought I would spend a few hours enjoying my hard (very hard) work!! It was pretty enough and I found a little shade spot in the yard and had just the best time! Work hard, play hard.

My Weekend Lookbook: July 12-13, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Estee Lauder Mini Powder via Ashley Brooke Designs

Photo 1. A few weeks ago for my birthday my grandmother gave me this beautiful Estēe Lauder compact. It’s one of my very favorite things I’ve ever been given. It’s such a sweet, simple, and girly gift, plus I use it just about everyday! AND, to top it off, I can buy refills when I use this little thing up! The contents of my handbag just got so much prettier! Thanks Grandma!

Photo 2. I spent the better part of Saturday afternoon reading, journaling, and sipping on swirly twirly lattes at Barnie’s on Park Avenue. It was just about the best day ever!

Photo 3. On Sunday I wore these C-R-A-Z-Y pants to church, and I cannot tell you how much I love them, because it’s a lot. If I were you I would go to the closest H&M I could find, and pick these babies up for $17.95 (I’m not even kidding)!

Get the look: Pants // Shoes // Necklace

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: June 28-29, 2014

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. I am a sucker for a good at home spa day, and my ABD girls know that! So when our newest addition to our ABD team, Charlotte, came back from her trip to the Mediterranean last week, she brought me back this Deadsea Black Mud face mask. And it is epic. I am not sure how frequent is too frequent when it comes to using this stuff, but I am pretty sure I am pushing the limit! It’s totally my new favorite skin care product!

Photo 2. This weekend was a B-U-S-Y, busy weekend! Three of my girlfriends had babies on the exact same day–I am not even kidding. We now have two adorable new boys and one sweet little girl that have been added to our lives — Peyton, Michael, and Ember! As you can imagine, I spent the majority of the weekend GLUED to my phone for updates! And the funny thing is, each baby was born at a different hospital in Orlando, so I can’t wait start the “Hospital Tour of 2014″ later today and deliver these little homemade bouquets I whipped up! Such a fun weekend!

Photo 3. I am obsessed with watermelon. Seriously, it’s become a problem! The only thing that deters me from seriously overeating watermelon is the fact that I HATE to cut up a watermelon…. why is it so hard?!!??! But, this weekend I was introduced to the tiny watermelon. OMG, why did I not know about this before!? Now, I just slice that thing in half and dig in! I cannot tell you how happy this makes me!

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

My Weekend Lookbook: June 21-22, 2014

beach cruiser via Ashley Brooke Designs

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1. This past weekend I went on a family camping (more like “glamping”) trip! On Friday afternoon, we packed up all of our gear and headed out to Disney’s Fort Wilderness for a few days of fun in the sun! We had THE best time roasting s’mores, splashing around in the pool, and sleeping in fancy tents! But, my favorite part of the entire trip was being able to take my brand new beach cruiser out for a spin! My parents gave me this bike for my birthday a few weeks ago, and let’s be honest… it was pretty much the best gift ever!!

P.S. To see more of our trip —> #CampDaniel2014

Photo 2. On Saturday, we took a boat to the most magical place… Disney World! Even though it was like one BILLION degrees outside, it was still a magical adventure! Seeing Cinderella’s castle just never gets old!

picnic via Ashley Brooke DesignsPhoto 3. One of my favorite things about family vacations is breakfast! My dad always makes the best pancakes and this family camping trip wasn’t any different! He brought all of his tools and set up shop right over the grill and flipped pancakes like a champ! You wouldn’t have even known that there wasn’t a kitchen in sight!! “Camp” pancakes + fresh fruit are heavenly!!

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!! xx

Photo 2: We are celebrating Father’s Day with my dad next weekend… but that didn’t stop me from texting him a photo of his perfectly wrapped (with an ABD hashtag gift tag!) gift! I can not WAIT to give this to him!!
