Photo Credit: LOVECHRYS

It’s Thursday evening (#TGIT), which means its Friday Eve, which then means it’s practically the weekend right? Well, I’m looking forward to this weekend especially since we are on the cusp of a long holiday weekend. I can’t wait to spend some quality time with loved ones while we enjoy some good 'ol bbq and backyard fireworks. This week has been a tough one but these links got me through, hopefully you can take a peek at them during this long, relaxing holiday weekend! Happy 4th of July, everyone!

  1. For every girl out there thinking about marriage, here’s what not to do.
  2. I’m on a staycation next week and upset at myself that I didn’t pick one of these places to visit during my time off.
  3. In case you missed the epic speech of the year from Jesse Williams, here it is.
  4. Don’t spend all your extra cash this summer. Here’s how to save a little and have fun.
  5. Because we all know our weekend will be the main broadcast on snapchat feeds, use this guide to try all the secret functions of the app. 
  6. Thinking it’s time to get a dining table for the new apt. obsessing over this set up.
  7. Who doesn’t need another trendy pool float for the weekend?
  8. Because there’s nothing like someone following their dreams.
  9. Thinking it’s time to take my off the shoulder game to next level.
  10. I’m pretty sure my plant is dying, maybe I should get one of these

What's everyone doing to celebrate the 4th this weekend? Let me know below!

Long Branch Beach, NJ



Beaches in the northeast sometimes don't get the credit they deserve. Living in the area for the past five years I've come across my share of pretty amazing beaches, my favorites are usually the gems that no one really talks about.




Long Branch in particular is one of those beaches. Tucked away on the Jersey Shore this beach boasts everything from beautiful palm trees to volleyball courts and an amazing village of restaurants, shopping centers and more. It was just my speed. Check out my vlog of the day below plus some tips on what you need to bring to the beach to have a successful trip! 


Have you been to the Jersey Shore? What's your favorite beach? Let me know below!

Must Have Summer Hair Products Featuring Shea Moisture


Summer is finally here and that means vacations, beaches and lots of fun! If you're anything like me then you're looking for the nearest body of water any given weekend during the summer months (tan is life).

But with more exposure to the sun and harsh beach water comes not so fun, damaged hair. Not to worry though because Shea Moisture has a brand new collection that helps to rescue and repair damaged hair.



With a base of Omega-rich ancient Peruvian Sacha Inchi Oil and certified organic Shea Butter, this nutrient-dense collection nourishes and revitalizes damaged, distressed textured hair. It supports and improves the elasticity of strands and locks in long-lasting moisture – leaving hair soft and manageable with a healthy shine.



A few of my favorite items from the collection are the Shampoo ($11), Conditioner ($11) Hair & Scalp Tonic ($11) and Curl Defining Smoothie ($13). The  Heat Protect Oil Serum ($11) is also a winner!




The collection is available exclusively at Ulta. Right now they have a buy one get one promotion happening! :) Happy shopping, ladies and let the summer fun commence!

Have you tried anything new from Shea Moisture lately? Let me know below!

9th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

Image
#Summersixteen has already started with a bang! I didn't plan to attend the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic this year, but I would like to think that I was able to manifest some free tickets to make it  happen! I was the lucky winner of an Instagram contest that allowed me to win one free ticket. I knew I would run into some friends at the fabulous affair so I wasn't worried about the last minute blessing. I grabbed a comfy dress, a hat to block the sun and ran to the event smiling and thanking God for this awesome surprise. Since this year, I wasn't as prepared as previous years, I took the opportunity to really experience the event behind my lens. Check out my pictorial of the highly anticipated Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.






























See you next year, hopefully in the Rose Garden :)

27 things I’m looking forward to for my 27th year



I miss you guys! I'm so sorry that I've been away for so long. No excuses, really. But If I had to give one really good excuse, I've been growing my beauty expertise over at Lovebrownsugar.com for a couple months now, and I'm really enjoying it. So, if I ever get too quiet over here, just click here to see what I've been up to on the beauty front.

I'm a few days late, but better late then never. I was reflecting today and came across my 26th birthday post from last year. I really love that post because as I said then, it's a great way to write down some goals to see if I'll be able to accomplish them in the next year or so. 26 was an amazing year but I know 27 will be even better. I'm looking forward to more growth, love, peace and balance in my life.
