At Blue Hole in Austin, Texas. This was just before summer so it was so peaceful. I’d image once summer gets started it will be flooded with people. It looks exactly like it’s pictures online – so beautiful. There are hanging ropes for swimming and many docks to enter the swimming hole in.
View of the World Trade Center looking North from Wall Street in the Financial District. This was taken in one of my friends apartments.
A styled packing photo, but 5 minutes later it was a very different scene. I’ve been known to have to sit on my suitcases to get them closed! Cue the eye roll emoji. Here I was packing for my quick trip to Austin.
This picture cracks me up. It was a throwback I did on my Instagram of one of my first blogging photos ever. I styled this setting just for this photo shoot. haha Can you spy little miss Ellie? This was taken where I used to live in Newport Beach, California.
I hosted an event in the West Village a few weeks back. I loved these yummy desserts from Woops!
DRESS Lilly Pulitzer
One of my favorite new dresses for summer.
My girlfriend and I went to the Nomo Soho for brunch recently. This is the incredible entrance to the hotel. If you are in the city you need to come here! They have the best cocktails and insta-worthy decor.
I took this picture in Austin a couple weeks ago. I was amused by the cactus haha. It reminded me of when I used to live in Arizona. When I was in Austin we went to these amazing swimming holes. If you go, you have to check out Barton Springs.

This summer I plan on being poolside and having my new bathing suits on rotation. The best places to be when it’s sunny and warm in NYC is any rooftop pool – perfect for lounging and dipping in to get refreshed. I also love laying out and having a picnic at one of the local parks around the city such as Central Park or Washington Square Park. These are the perfect places to be to connect with friends and celebrate summer! I always bring along a few Dr Pepper’s (as my friends tend to snag the extras) to keep as a treat for myself and refreshment under the hot sun.
On my last vacation to Palm Springs I stopped at Walmart to pick up sunscreen and a pack of Dr Pepper to last me all weekend. I brought them to the pool every day at the resort and used my 6-pack can holder and ice pack to keep them cool. I also love this holder so I didn’t have to keep going back to the room to replenish. It’s a great way to connect with friends and enjoy refreshing drinks by the pool. One of my girlfriends poured her Dr Pepper over ice cream.
I wore this adorable one-piece swimsuit that was perfect for all of the activities the hotel had to offer. I lounged, swam and then played mini golf and corn-hole! The resort basically had everything for summertime fun! I’m a nut about sun protection (see this post) so I also brought a floppy hat to the pool. I usually bring hats when I’m spending long periods of time outside. So between my refreshing drink of choice and all of the summer fun activities, I was a happy camper.
On another day, we hiked at Joshua Tree National Park. It was 105 that day so we went early to beat the heat. I didn’t think we would be there that long, but we ended up staying for 4 hours because there was so much to see! I brought along my 6-pack carrier filled with regular Dr Pepper for myself and my friends to enjoy. It helped refreshed us during the long and scenic hike. Bring some along on your next hike, trust me, your friends will thank you!
This summer I’m also heading out to the Hamptons several times. We usually stay at a house in Bridge Hampton or Southampton. I love going to the beach, but my favorite thing is to BBQ in the backyard and lounge by the pool. It’s really the best way to spend the summer. My friends know me well and usually pick up some Dr Pepper for me to sip throughout the day. But now I’ll want to pick it up myself at Walmart to earn the prizes!
If you want to get in on the summertime fun, the next time you shop at Walmart from 6/15-8/15 this summer and buy any Dr Pepper you can upload your receipt at http://bit.ly/2pts8Qo to get the 6-pack can holder featured on my blog here and/or other prizes below! I have my eye on that Dr Pepper bottle shaped pool float and of course the unicorn beverage holder!

I have wanted to check out The Saguaro Palm Springs for awhile as I’ve seen it all over social media and it looked so cute and instagramable! I love all the bright colors with all of the colorful walls. It definitely was a party hotel so we only stayed for a short while. We were staying at the Ritz Carlton so we just stopped by for a quick lunch at El Jefe. The Saguaro Palm Springs is bumping – lots of music and super crowed pool area. If you are looking for a party scene in Palm Springs, this is it! It was a little too hectic for me, but it was fun to experience it for a day!
I’ve been wearing this romper a lot I picked up last season. I love the print and the bright colors. I also love beach clutches so I was so excited when I found this one. Perfect for holding all of your wet beach items. I have been wearing these wedges a lot as they go with everything for summer. Last year I was obsessed with a similar pair that I wore all over London and Paris.
