Costa Rica Video Is Here!

August 17, 2016

I know . . . the wait has been real, but it’s finally here! The video from the Costa Rica trip that I took with my lovelies Natalie and Kiara a few months ago. All footage was filmed by Mike Bishop and it features where we stayed during our first half of the trip at the Four Seasons Costa Rica, located on the Peninsula Papagayo. I really do miss waking up early every morning to the sound of crashing waves outside my window, and smelling sea salt on my skin as soon I stuck my head out the door. I slept the most relaxing and therapeutic of sleeps in this place. A sleep that extended into a meditative-like trance throughout the day. Pure happiness. We felt light on our feet by starting our mornings off with local fruits and the classic Costa Rican breakfast of eggs, rice, black beans and fried plantains. Such a well rounded breakfast that we would have energy to last us far into the evening, when finally our appetites would roar from the exertion we put out to complete our daily activities, which included surfing, paddle boarding, jet skiing and zip lining. All these activities were booked through the hotel (and paddle boarding is completely complimentary!). For those who are more into a zen state of mind, the hotel offers yoga, hiking sessions and of course spa treatments. I took advantage of that one afternoon and got the full body massage that also included sound therapy. It was the most soothing process. I finished the treatment with some ginger root tea and felt brand new. In a place like Costa Rica, where nature is so plethoric, it’s hard not to get one with it and work to treat your body in good, natural ways. It deserves it! And Costa Rica is a reminder of that! Pura Vida!

Now watch the video we made featuring Natalie, Kiara and I. Shot by Mike Bishop. I love remembering all the fun times we had! And I hope to visit Costa Rica soon, soon again!

Beauty Video | Red Lips For The Win

Hey you guys! Something special for you all today! A little beauty story/tutorial/whatever you want to call it. It’s fun to get some content on here that’s a little more interactive every once in a while, as opposed to just pictures and words. As soon as I put on this bright red romper, I knew I had to do something fun with it. And I was inspired to go all out with my cat-eye and red lips. See, I can get glam every once in a while. Still subtle, but just a little something extra extra before summer is fully over and a Coca Cola and little red romper combination can no longer be called practical. 
Stila is one of my favorite beauty brands, and has been for a very long time, and I wanted to show you what products I’ve been using to get my favorite va va voom beauty look that I like to rock when the occasion calls. It was so fun making this video, and after seeing how it all came together afterwards, I’ve been wanting to rock my strong red lip way more often! It looks like it’s going to be my new color for fall 🙂 I hardly ever wear red, but quite a few people have told me it’s a color that looks great on me, so I think I’ll take their word for it.

We’re on YOUTUBE!

December 1, 2014
So Natalie and I decided to start a Youtube channel for the videos we plan on making for the blog. We took some footage during our Miami trip this past summer, and I only started looking at the video clips a few weeks ago. Finally I sat down, learned how to use iMovie in an hour, and whipped up a little video from our trip together. The whole process is really addictive, and I can’t wait to start showing you our adventures more like this. I think it’s a really engaging way for you guys to get to know us a little bit more. And maybe even our more wackier (and real) sides! Enjoy!
