Swimwear 2019 |Trends Cheap VS. Expensive

Trends in swimwear go across the board from expensive to cheaper alternatives. When clothing is more expensive it does not mean that it is higher quality. Some of these dups are better then their counter parts so keep that in mind when shopping this season.


The Two Parter

One of my favorite trends this year is this two part swimsuit or bikini suspenders? Its unique flare adds something extra to this season’s selection. I would much rather add the yellow set to my collection. Plus it is not really two parts, it just looks that way. The lines are horizontal but since they vary in size it still has a sliming effect. In addition the color’s contrast which is a fun effect. On the right side the diamond swimsuit is cool but lacks vibrancy and a shape aid.

DIY Knot Scrunchies |Easy

After my usual window shopping or shall I say internet browsing, I usually find something that is cute yet too expensive to justify purchasing. This happened to be one of those times, instead of just laughing and clicking out I thought why not try to make my own. At Alo Yoga this scrunchie is selling for $12.00 which is a bit pricy as it only includes one.

Easter Basket | Gift Ideas

When we were little we used to get Easter Baskets galore with large stuffed animals, you know the ones from Costco. It used to be so much fun to open them up, play with new toys and such in the afternoon after Easter Sunday service. As we (my sister and I) got older the less times people celebrated us or made us feel special. For the past couple of years my sister has taken on the role of the Easter bunny, filling up baskets for mom, dad, me and even herself. I guess at the end of the day no matter what your age, it is fun to open up a surprise package because it makes you feel special.

Work Style File | Lookbook

Since it has been awhile since my last style file or what I wore this week this seemed to be the perfect time. The weather around this neck of the woods in California has been a bit chilly with foggy rainy mornings and sunny afternoons. For a reference, it has been around 57-65 degrees Fahrenheit here. Considering the fact that it is required to wear closed toed shoes in the office I rarely wear heels unless they are boots. That being said I still uphold a semi relaxed formal attire. All of these looks include soft, warm yet breathable material to provide all day comfort.

Healthy Snacks | Easy

Before we dive into the actual snacks I want clarify my standards when it comes to defining a healthy snack verses a non-healthy one. First and foremost, it must have REAL  ingredients and be in nonlinguistic terms. In other words, I should be able to read the ingredients list without feeling as if I am at a national spelling bee. Companies use complicated verbiage to confuse you. Did you know there are more than three terms used to identify regular sugar on a standard ingredient list? If you cannot read the ingredients, yes you can google them, however, you should not have to.
