Mood Board: Nantucket

The parents have tossed the idea of venturing to Nantucket one weekend in the summer...Nantucket has been on my bucket list for several years now: the lighthouses, amazing lobster rolls, beautiful beaches, and of course the preppy style!

So all of those topics that embody the Nantucket life style have been on my mind lately...here's a little "mood board' to celebrate the potential trip!

Peek into my Week: May 28th-June 2nd

Greetings from the "greatest city in the world!"

I've made the move from the south to the Big Apple on Thursday of this week. Obviously nerves are involved with any new transition in life, but I've been dreaming of living in New York City for as long as I can remember...


This week began with a little R & R at the beach and will end with a girl's weekend in the city! In between the two adventures, I've just been packing and prepping for the move. 






Here's a peek into my week!

O.M.G. how cute are these treats?!

Did you hear about these new Dunkin' flavors? I'm so pumped to try them!

Pack Your Bags
Obsessing over these new Mark and Graham bags!


Have a great weekend!

May Favorites

Well, it's officially summer now that June is here! May was a slow month for me...lots of time with nothing to do and nowhere to be. But it's the only "month of summer" I have since I'll be working for the rest of the break! So here are my May favorites during the lazy month!






Ray Ban Tortoise Sunglasses: I got these for an Easter surprise and have been wearing them nonstop! They are my favorite pair of sunglasses for the season!

Baublebar Tassel Earrings: These are currently trending everywhere...I absolutely adore this turquoise color for the summer!

Creativity Inc: I mentioned this book in a post a week ago and I read it all last weekend! I love hearing all about the road to Disney's Pixars success!

Justin's Maple Almond Butter: I've been trying to stay healthy and create good eating habits during this month before heading to the City. A scoop of this almond butter to accompany a juicy apple is my go to lunch at the moment!

Halo Tops Chocolate Almond Crunch: Yeah...even though I'm trying to stay healthy, I still love a sweet treat at night! Halo Tops is a life saver when it comes to healthy eating!

Blogilates: Who needs a gym when there are hundreds of workout videos on YouTube?! I absolutely love her workout style and positivity!

How I Met Your Mother: Yes, I realize I'm extremely late when it comes to adoring this show but it happens to be my new favorite! It's hysterical and I finished the series in about a week!

John Mayer: His Spotify playlist is on point. Every night, I take an evening walk around my neighborhood and listen to it!

What are your favorites from the month?

Fun and Flirty Sandal: This sandal is the theme of the summer! Pom poms, tassels and cheetah prints...



The Neutral Wedge: Perfect for any big occasion!




Sandal Fit for the Beach: It's got to be waterproof...



The Perfect Gladiator Sandal: A go-to everyday sandal! The bet color to get is a leather color because it'll go with everything!

Happy Memorial Day, friends!
I hope it's a great day and a great way to end the long weekend! To keep in the holiday spirit, I made these adorable flag squares for the family to devour! They are incredibly easy to make...shall we get started?

While cake is cooling, add food coloring to your frosting. 


Cut the cake into squares. 


Frost the top of the yellow cake with vanilla frosting. 


Decorate the remainder of the cakes with red stripes and blue squares. 
Add sprinkles disks for the finishing touch.



Hope you enjoy these treats!
