Greenville Zoo

I had an amazing break in South Carolina this past week and I am looking forward to sharing it with y’all! On Wednesday we went to the Greenville Zoo, which is the perfect place to spend a few hours. It’s not giant (like the Cincinnati Zoo where I normally spend all day), but it has its fair share of unique animals. Sadly, they recently lost their elephants, but in their place they got a Giant Anteater! I had never seen one before, and it was so cool. The zoo also has a baby giraffe that was just born in February (it was so small!). If you are looking for a fun, morning activity, I highly recommend visiting the Greenville Zoo! Here is the zoo website.

Here are some pictures that I took while at the zoo!


This is the Giant Anteater at the zoo (I had no idea they had such big, fluffy tails)!


Isn’t the baby giraffe the cutest?

I will be sharing more about our vacation this week!

Stay Fabulous,

Packing for Spring Break

With spring break less than a week away, it’s time to start packing! Depending on where you go, there are many things you may need. I’m heading home to South Carolina (with Thomas) on Sunday and I am getting ready to pack. I always try to make a list of things that I need to pack to make sure that I remember everything.

What’s going in my suitcase for spring break (besides clothes, of course)?

1. Camera. I love my Nikon Coolpix, but haven’t gotten much use out of it lately. Spring break is the perfect time for me to get back into photography. This camera is the perfect mix between a tiny point-and-shoot camera and a DSLR. Here is a newer model of the one I have!


2. Sunglasses. I love aviators, I have 3 pairs and I keep buying more (oops!). Here are some new ones that I would love to add to my collection (and they’re under $6)!


And whenever I bring sunglasses, I always make sure I have a sunglass strap (aka croakie)! I love my Lilly Pulitzer one!

3.  Water Bottle. I’m going to be doing a lot of walking around in the heat, so having one of these is very important. I haven’t decided which one to bring yet, but these two are my favorites!

Contigo Water Bottle                                               CamelBak Water Bottle

I put on a monogram sticker on mine to personalize it (and so that I wouldn’t lose it)!

4. Welch’s Gummies. I have a 7 hour car trip ahead of me (each way), so car snacks are a must. I love Welch’s Berries n’ Cherries because they are made of real fruit and are delicious!

5. Crossbody Purse. These are great when you know that you’ll be doing lots of walking. I have a few in all different colors, but my black one is my go-to. Here are some cute cross body purses!

Target Quilted Crossbody

Or if you want something with a fun pattern, I love this one!!!

6. Playlist. This is not actually going to be physically in my suitcase, but it is probably the most important thing to bring with me for the long drive. I made a 133 song, 8 hour and 24 minute long playlist of some of my favorite songs from the past 8 years (some of which I haven’t listened to in about that long)!

For those who haven’t had spring break yet, have fun! And for those who are just returning from spring break, I hope you had fun!

Stay Fabulous,

International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day!!! I hope y’all are having a fabulous week! It is finally staying warm in Ohio, so I am one happy camper. Plus, I only have 11 days till Spring Break! Anyways, today I’d like to share some of my favorite recent finds:

1.Who What Wear for Target. This collection is great! My favorite pieces are the High Neck Lace Top and the Bardot Dress.

2. This picture from Ms. Magazine really made an impression on me! Women need to stop fighting against each other and start fighting for each other!!


3. Monogrammed Athletic Clothes. Now that it’s warm out, I’ve been running in the mornings, and what is better than working out in monograms? Marley Lilly has monogrammed seersucker tank tops, athletic shorts, and athletic skirts.

4. Coffee Table Books. If you are looking for great coffee table books, I highly suggest getting Occasions, Style, and Manners by Kate Spade. I just purchased them and I love them!


Stay Fabulous,

Dreaming of Warmer Days

With all the cold and snow, I’ve found that looking forward to the warm weather keeps me happy. All my favorite brands are putting out their spring lines, spring break is a short month away, and the weather might be warming up (it is supposed to be 60 degrees here on Friday, but we’ll see)! Now is the time to snatch up all of those cute outfits you plan on wearing over spring break (I’ve already started). I have put together some of my favorite finds so far:

I love the color of this J. Crew dress, it is perfect for spring (and it also comes in a fabulous green)!

It’s no secret that I love colored shorts, and these Crown & Ivy shorts come in the brightest variety of colors (I’m in love).

I love the scallops on this bikini top (and it’s less than $30!).

These BCBG sandals come in a range of colors (this one is my favorite), and would be a great addition to any shoe addicts collection!


And if you can’t tell that I love scallops, here is the perfect monogrammed bag for spring break from Marley Lilly (plus if you buy it now, you can get a free baseball cap).

I’ve been meaning to get a pair of Kate Spade Keds, but I haven’t been able to find a pattern that I really love. Well this has changed, I love these floral ones!

Spring will be here before we know it (at least I hope so)!

Stay Fabulous,
